All You Need To Know About Weed Plant Stages

Everything About Weed Plant Stages!!

It does not matter where marijuana is grown, it will still need to go through several stages, in order to produce some high quality buds.  As you probably already know, marijuana can be grown outdoors or indoors, which is why, some people may have some problems identifying some of the different weed plant stages.

In this blog post, we will tell you a little more about these marijuana plant stages and how you can identify them.  If you are lucky enough to live in a place were people are allowed to grow their own cannabis, this information will surely help you to become a more experienced grower.  

The Different Weed Plant Stages

  1. Germination Stage - This is the beginning of it all and it is when you create the perfection environment, for a cannabis seed to grow.  There are different ways of germinating marijuana seeds, but one that has worked perfectly for many is, to place the seeds in a wet napkin and then place that napkin in a plastic bag or sealed container for a couple of days.  The seeds will start germinating after some time and you will only need to switch them to a pot with soil or other growing medium that you might be using.  
  2. Vegetative Stage - After placing your germinated marijuana seeds in a pot, you will soon start seeing the small plant popping out and two small leaves will start to form.  From here on, your plant will be in the vegetative stage and it can remain there for as long as the climate allows it or as long as you want it too.  During this stage of the weed plant stages, your cannabis plant will require light and water, in order to grow and mature.  You can manipulate the time your plant spends in vegetative stage, in an indoor grow and this can change its size, its yield and much more.  When growing outside, you will have to stick to the seasons of the year, in order for your plant to get the most sun light during the vegetative stage and so it can grow as it is supposed to.  When growing indoors, there are plenty of theories and strategies for manipulating your plant and making the most of out it, but this will require another article.  
  3. Flowering Stage - After several weeks of being in a vegetative stage, your plant will go into the flowering stage, which is almost the last one and one of the most interesting for most cannabis lovers.  During this stage of the weed plant stages, the marijuana plant will begin to flower and you will see some distinct changes.  This is when you can see if your plant is a male or a female and decide whether you want to keep all of them and have seeds or cut off the males and have only perfect marijuana buds.  If growing indoors, your plants will need to go in to a 12-12 hour light period and you will know when they are ready to harvest, when its thricomes say so.  These are the tiny white dots that you will see on your plant and if you use a magnifying glass, you will know exactly when to harvest your marijuana plants.  
  4. Harvesting & Curing Stage - After waiting for those thricomes to turn as amber as possible, you will have about five to seven days to harvest your cannabis buds, if you want full potency and the best stony effect.  Remember that a magnifying glass is really helpful for identifying the color in the thricomes and when at least 1/2 of them turn an amber color.  You should also have stopped using nutrients, if using any at all and have been watering with only water for a few days now.  This will give your cannabis bud a better taste in the end.  After harvesting, you should try to trim those marijuana plants right away, as this will allow the air to get into those buds and really cure properly.  You should try to trim all of the leaves and leaves tips that are close to your buds and put all of them in a dark room to dry.  They can be hung from a string and then placed in a glass jar, so they can cure for a few days more.  Remember that patience is the best way to get high quality buds!!!
We hope that this list of the weed plant stages, has helped you to learn a little more about them and how you can start growing your own marijuana plants too.  Please remember to share and like this article, so that more people can read about these marijuana plant stages and promote the legalization of cannabis worldwide.  Don't forget to sign up for our free newsletter, by leaving us your email in the box to the right and we will send you more interesting news and information about marijuana.

A New Study Proves That Couples Who Consume Marijuana Are Happier

Couples Who Consume Cannabis Have Less Domestic Violence Reports

The University of Buffalo, just led a new research, which proves that couples who consume cannabis, have less conflicts and involved in fewer domestic violence cases, than those couples that do not consume marijuana.  The conclusion of this study is, "couples in which both spouses used marijuana frequently, reported the least frequent IPV (intimate partner violence) perpetration," which basically means that couples that consume cannabis on a regular basis, tend to have less fights and live a happier life together.  

The study began back in 1996 and it involved over 600 couples, with different types of lives and from different regions of the country.  All couples had to answer questions about their drug and alcohol consumption, as well as some of the fights and problems that they had between them.  

According to the study, one cause for this might be that chronic marijuana users, are less likely to be involved in aggressive behavior, thus having less problems and fights with their spouse.  While researchers agree that more studies need to be done on marijuana, this proves many of what our parents and other people told us in the past.  It is not true that consuming marijuana will make you crazy and that you will go out to commit a crime.  People who do that, already have that evil inside them, but it is certainly not caused by marijuana and this study will help to prove this.  

So if you are in a relationship and one of you has had doubts about consuming marijuana together and having a nice time, this study should also help you decide and understand that cannabis is not a drug, but a herb, which can work as a medicine for millions and a recreational past time for others.

Another Politic Who Supports Medical Cannabis

Daniel Andrews Supports Medical Marijuana

People who live in Victoria, Australia,  will be glad to hear that their candidate Daniel Andrews has admitted that he supports the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.  At Zip 420, we believe that this is not only great news for Victorians, or for Australians, but for all of the world, as this is yet another step towards changing the world's view about cannabis.  

According to Daniel, it is not fair for parents or people who really do benefit from marijuana, to have to break the law, in order to get their medicine for their children or themselves.  If there is not a legal place for them to get this herb, they should be able to grow their own and keep their symptoms or illnesses at ease.  Nobody should have the right to prohibit a person to feel better!!

Mr. Andrews, also said  that if he wins, his party will be taking the matter to parliament and hopefully the laws and reforms about cannabis in Australia will be decriminalized or completely changed.  Mr. Andrews believes that a regulatory program should also be created and that this will help to ease the minds, of those people who are not really in favor of making this herb a legal medicine.  

If everything works out, things related to medicinal cannabis in Victoria, Australia, should be very different by the end of next year!!

A New Opportunity For Marijuana Investors

Investing In Marijuana

As we have told some of you before, marijuana is a growing industry and those of you who are interested in it, should get involved today.  As cannabis becomes legal once again worldwide, people are finding new ways to create services and products, related to this industry and today, we want to tell you about a new marijuana investment opportunity.  

Some of you may already know that Canada has established some very tolerant laws about cannabis these days and now a new company has declared that they will go public next Monday, which means that some of you, will be able to buy some shares in this company.  

If you are involved in these sort of businesses,  you probably already read something about this or have already bought shares in another similar company.  Bedrocan Cannabis Corp, is the company that we are talking about right now and even though Zip 420 does not have any shares or business with them, we want to let you all know about their new business opportunity, because we want to help the cannabis industry grow and the only way to do it, is if investors and financial institutions, begin to trust some of these businesses and work with them.  

Bedrocan Cannabis Corp, will go public in the Toronto Venture Exchange and it will be under the symbol "BED".  According to some experts and sources, this company had planned going public for quite some time now and their goals are finally being reached.  

Health Canada, gave Bedrocan a license back in December of 2013 and they are now starting on the construction of a 52000 square foot warehouse, which will become a growing facility for medical marijuana.  They already have around 1100 registered patients throughout Canada and there new facilities, will be ready before the year ends.

Banks Are Finally Beginning To Work With Cannabis Dispensaries

Banks Will Start Considering Marijuana Businesses

As long as banks are not familiarized or trustworthy of some marijuana businesses and cannabis dispensaries, the legalization in US states like Colorado and Washington, cannot continue to grow.  Thankfully, a US federal official, recently leaked some news related to banks and marijuana businesses and according to him, some credit unions and at least 105 banks, are now working with companies and associations, related to cannabis.  

If marijuana growers, cannabis shops and other marijuana related businesses do not have a place to safely store their profits, they are more vulnerable to thieves and other criminals, who might look at them as easy prey.  

It was this past February, when the Obama administration, also decided to assure financial institutions, about the safety of working with marijuana related companies and how they would not be prosecuted by Federal laws, for doing so, as long as these cannabis businesses, are following all state laws were they are located in.

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, will host a speech in Washington DC, led by Jennifer Shasky Calvery and it will try to answer all concerns related to cannabis businesses and legitimate banking opportunities for them.  

While it is still only around 1% of banking institutions in America, which are working with marijuana businesses, we at Zip 420, are certain that this number will keep increasing in the next few years and that soon, marijuana will be a very important legal industry around the world.

Teenager Cannabis Use In Colorado Has Decreased

Less Teenagers Are Consuming Marijuana In Colorado

Just as Zip 420 predicted and just as it happened in countries like Portugal, the use of marijuana among teenagers in Colorado is now decreasing, after retail legalization started in 2012.  It was yesterday that Colorado's state officials, released some new statistics about this and the results are really magnificent.  

The Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, which was released by the Department of Public Health and Environment,  states that the thirty-day marijuana use, dropped from 22% back in 2011 to 20% in 2013.  The study also claims that lifetime use has decreased from 39% to 37%, during the same period of time.  

Mason Tvert, who is one of the people who proposed Amendment 64, which legalized recreational cannabis in this State and who is also a spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project, stated "regulating marijuana is working in Colorado.  The drop in teen use reflects the fact that state and local authorities, have far more control over marijuana than ever before.  Hopefully, elected officials and voters in other States, are paying attention."

Since 2009, when marijuana stores first started operating in Colorado, cannabis use among teenagers, has decreased at least 5 points, which is a very positive number and we are certain that it will continue growing, as everything becomes more organized and functions to perfection.  

It is always nice to read about these kind of survey results and this is why Zip 420 wants to share them with you.  It is time to acknowledge the benefits of decriminalizing cannabis and allowing people to consume this herb.
