Weed Review: Skunk #1 Seeds

rae It was first created in 1970, it is also known as feminized strains. It is an original hybrid strain and combines the best qualities of two sativa and indica. It was originated with Afghani and Colombian gold. It has a medium yield capacity and therefore it is a very popular and expensive seeds in the market. It has a heavy flowering of indicia. “Skunk” is general term for mostly all kinds of powerful ganja.  It has become one of the main ingredients for breeding parent for most leading “skunk” and other strains.

It produces very dense buds in different colors like light green to shades of golden. It is very easy to maintain because of its bud to leaf ratio. It has a very sweet and subtle smell and gives a taste with cerebral high.

It can be grown both indoors and outdoors, but indoor is more preferred for its quality. When grown indoors it grows to small or medium height and has a flowering period up to 6-9 weeks. Its harvest time is in October; most preferably you will get a fresh and new stock in the same month.

It is very easy to grow, no complex procedures or much maintenance required. It gives you a stoned effect with a nice high.

Latest update in global market - 

In today’s market major seed banks are providing their own version of skunk #1. There are very few seed banks providing the original skunk #1. Many other seeds like feminized seeds, early skunk feminized seeds, and super skunk feminized seeds. These all are one of the varieties of skunk # 1 but not exactly the same.

The composition will have slight change which gives them a very different structure and quality. Recently they are now experimenting with the white skunk feminized seeds to gain market control and recognition. Many seed banks are also providing low quality skunk # 1 seeds, therefore checking the quality will be a smart move.

Review - 

As its composition is pure combination of indica and sativa, both are very powerful ingredients and have their individual identity for giving stoning and high effect. It is mostly sativa which gives skunk #1 an upper hand in the market. Now, going in the composition it has marijuana and has Avery strong odor, therefore if you have close neighbor you should take care of the smell by ventilation and odor controls.

It has a very strong and long term effect on your head so be careful to use it when you are around people. It creates a smoke which gives you intense trademark hit on the head giving a soothing, creative sativa high, lazy indica stone and euphoric. If you are looking for "A" quality skunk #1 seeds for shocking reasonable rates please visit our website http://www.high-supplies.com

The consequences of cannabis legalization in Colorado

colorado-cannabis On November 6th 2012, the U.S. state of Colorado voted in favor of total cannabis legalization; both medicinal and recreational use are now authorized within the state’s borders, for citizens and visitors aged 18 or more. The law took effect on January 1st 2014, the date on which licensed dispensaries started selling hundreds of different cannabis strains, edibles, and more.

Outside of the cannabis community, reactions to this tremendous step forward ranged from vague concern to complete hysteria, but all predicted the same thing: legalization would surely result in an unavoidable increase in all sorts of criminal behaviors, especially in large cities in which most marijuana business would take place.

Needless to say, a few months into this new statewide situation the supposedly unavoidable disasters predicted by detractors remain to be seen. On the contrary, some of the communicated statistics actually work in favor of cannabis legalization. Back in June 2014, the authorities of the city of Denver, Colorado, released information in regards to their crime rates, and the numbers were rather impressive, compared to the same period of the previous year, 2013:

-        Homicides reduced by  53%

-        Sex crimes reduced by  13.6%

-        Robberies reduced by  4.8%

-        Assaults reduced by  3.7%

Besides, the budding business of legal cannabis is bringing a tremendous amount in tax money to the state of Colorado. This amount measured at $12 million in June 2014, and is expected to reach around $30 million by the end of the year.

But beyond these figures, the cultural impact that this legalization has had, together with the Uruguay initiative of nationwide, total legalization, is prodigious. The fact is that a U.S. state such as Colorado, cradle of a massive tourism-based economy, originally completely unrelated to cannabis, is it a perfect spot to develop local cannabis business as well as cross-cultural awareness.

Eight Miles High: The History of Music and Marijuana

Screen Shot 2014-03-13 at 11.44.27 Rock and roll minus marijuana equals Cliff Richard. If that’s what you want, what are you even doing here? It’s a little more complicated than that of course, so in this post we’ll take a look at how the noble plant has influenced musicians across the years.

Early Daze

Perhaps, around 30,000 years ago, Og the caveman chanced across a small weed bush and thought, “Ooh – herbs! I shall add that to tonight’s mammoth pie.” By midnight he was ripped to the Palaeolithic knackers, and had fashioned a rudimentary trumpet out of a length of tusk. By 2am he’d invented a kind of proto-jazz, and by 2.15 he was hungry again. By the following Tuesday he’d worked out how to grow his own marijuana from seeds.

Jaaaaaaazzzzzz

What we do know is that the recorded history of music and dope starts in 1930’s America, with jazz musicians like Louis Armstrong and Cab Calloway. Armstrong was looking at six months inside for possession at one point, until the judge turned out to be a fan. He was free and playing in a club later that night. Jazz musicians found that smoking fatties improved their perception of how they were playing to the point where they were able to improvise freely over the top of whatever was written down; weed literally “jazzed up” the original tunes.

No Fun

People were having too much fun, goddammit, so it was time for the government to step in and crack down, which has obviously worked so well in the intervening years that certain US states have given up in the War On Wastedness. Anyway, the next major milestone allowed rock and roll, which was ready to die of blandness in the early 1960’s, to be reborn. Bob Dylan met the Beatles in a hotel room in August 1964. He just happened to be in possession of some eye-wateringly powerful tetrahydrocannabinol, conveniently rolled into smokable form. Paul McCartney’s thumbs have not stopped being aloft since then.

Doobs

Before having their minds turned upside down by Dylan’s devilish doobies, The Beatles were releasing “nice” songs like All My Loving. Shortly afterwards we got all the chords in the world in Help! (1965). Things became increasingly weird (partly due to the increasingly naughty nature of the chemicals the Fab Four were ingesting) culminating in Sergeant Pepper (1967) via Tomorrow Never Knows, from Revolver (1966). The youth of an entire planet was officially corrupted. Hoorah!

Things were also turning strange in the Caribbean. Fast, jumpy ska music had been mellowed into long, lazy, loping reggae by the madness that is reefer. Bob Marley and Peter Tosh sang of the joys of herb, and the vibes filtered through to white boy rock music, some of which was excellent and some of which necessitated the invention of punk, to blow away some cobwebs.

Do. Or Do Not

These days it’s rap artists like Snoop who are keeping the, er, “torch” alight. Heroic quantities of pot have turned the Dogg into Snoop Lion, apparently christened thusly by a Jamaican rasta priest. Snoop Lion’s songs “No Guns Allowed” and “Smoke The Weed” exemplify his new reggae direction. These days, governments are beginning to realise that people who want to smoke, do. People who don’t, don’t. There’s little or nothing they can do about it.

BEHOLD: Game Of Thrones Season 3 Box Set Is A Thing Of Beauty

Screen Shot 2013-08-18 at 21.37.46 Fuck knows who buys DVDs anymore, but this would make a sweet-ass weed box.

Via Uproxx, who say:

Wow! Granted, it’s just an “artist rendering” so it won’t look exactly like what we see below, but it’s a good approximation, and h*ly shit, right? The season three box set of Game of Thrones will retail for $105 on Amazon, but considering that you’re getting an entire season of DVDs, plus SOMETHING AWESOME TO PUT ON YOUR MANTLE that your non-geeky freinds will make fun of you for, that’s a bargain at twice the price!

Marijuana Isn’t a Pain Killer—It’s a Pain Distracter

From Smithsonian:

One of the chief arguments for the legalization of medicinal marijuana is its usefulness as a pain reliever. For many cancer and AIDS patients across the 19 states where medicinal use of the drug has been legalized, it has proven to be a valuable tool in managing chronic pain—in some cases working for patients for which conventional painkillers are ineffective.

To determine exactly how cannabis relieves pain, a group of Oxford researchers used healthy volunteers, an MRI machine and doses of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. Their findings, published today in the journal Pain, suggest something counterintuitive: that the drug doesn’t so much reduce pain as make the same level of pain more bearable.

“Cannabis does not seem to act like a conventional pain medicine,” Michael Lee, an Oxford neuroscientist and lead author of the paper, said in a statement. “Brain imaging shows little reduction in the brain regions that code for the sensation of pain, which is what we tend to see with drugs like opiates. Instead, cannabis appears to mainly affect the emotional reaction to pain in a highly variable way.”

As part of the study, Lee and colleagues recruited 12 healthy volunteers who said they’d never used marijuana before and gave each one either a THC tablet or a placebo. Then, to trigger a consistent level of pain, they rubbed a cream on the volunteers’ legs that included 1% capsaicin, the compound found that makes chili peppers spicy; in this case, it caused a burning sensation on the skin.

When the researchers asked each person to report both the intensity and the unpleasantness of the pain—in other words, how much it physically burned and how much this level of burning bothered them—they came to the surprising finding. “We found that with THC, on average people didn’t report any change in the burn, but the pain bothered them less,” Lee said.

This indicates that marijuana doesn’t function as a pain killer as much as a pain distracter: Objectively, levels of pain remain the same for someone under the influence of THC, but it simply bothers the person less. It’s difficult to draw especially broad conclusions from a study with a sample size of just 12 participants, but the results were still surprising.

Each of the participants was also put in an MRI machine—so the researchers could try to pinpoint which areas of the brain seemed to be involved in THC’s pain relieving processes—and the results backed up the theory. Changes in brain activity due to THC involved areas such as the anterior mid-cingulate cortex, believed to be involved in the emotional aspects of pain, rather than other areas implicated in the direct physical perception of it.

Additionally, the researchers found that THC’s effectiveness in reducing the unpleasantness of pain varied greatly between individuals—another characteristic that sets it apart from typical painkillers. For some participants, it made the capsaicin cream much less bothersome, while for others, it had little effect.

The MRI scans supported this observation, too: Those more affected by the THC demonstrated more brain activity connecting their right amydala and a part of the cortex known as the primary sensorimotor area. The researchers say that this finding could perhaps be used as a diagnostic tool, indicating for which patients THC could be most effective as a pain treatment medicine.
