Update: Testing out Aeroponic cloning 

This is going to be a quick update. I started a cloning runing using my new aeroponic king cloner. So far It has been 4 days and all the cuttings still look good. 

Follow my progess of these clones with my daily pictures of them on Instagram (@fibromanmmj) and Duby (@fibroman). Together we will see how well this method works. Good, bad or otherwise.

Update

Sorry for the lack of post the last few weeks. My wife back has herniated and I have not been actively reading or researching anything during these last few weeks. Instead been focused on helping her however I can. 

I do still have on deck to finish reading and reviewing Chris Bennetts book, “Sex, Drugs, Violence and the Bible.” And will focus on reading that again when I am able to find the time to read. 

I also have recently gotten some hygrometers to test the humidity of my curing jars. I am working on testing, and calibrating the meters and will be doing a future post on how to do that and why you even need or want to use a hygrometer in cure. 

I’m also planning on doing a post about my experience with cannabis seed banks. Along with a post about my new areoponic king cloner and how well it works. I have not used it yet, but excited to see how it works.

So as you can see I do have many ideas of some posts that will be coming up. I just need more time and energy to accomplish it all. 

Until next time,

Cannabis Parties–A trend of the future…

Now that cannabis use is becoming more normalized and legal in various parts of the country and world. That I want to talk about something fun and exciting—Cannabis Parties.

What is a cannabis party? A cannabis party is party that is focused around cannabis usage and not alcohol. Make sure to tell people that these are children free events.

In Maine, we legalized adult use of cannabis and we have also had medicinal cannabis laws since 1999. So having a party with a bunch of people was completely legal. Know you local laws before hosting your own cannabis party. I have now had two amazing cannabis parties this year.

Cannabis parties can be for fun for everyone. For people with little experience with cannabis to long standing cannabis users and medical patients. It is a place to meet people and exchange stories, process, grow techniques, recipes, and of course get to try new cannabis strains, edibles and ect. The cannabis shop talk that happens when you bring cannabis growers, extractors and patients together can be an amazing learning experience and networking opportunity. The cannabis shop talk is my favorite part—I am in my element and it is invigorating.

As a host of a cannabis party it is good to make a verity of stuff. I had couple of strains of cannabis I grew and had people sample and tell me what they thought. I also asked my guest to bring and cannabis buds, dabs, or edible they wanted to share as well and most people did that were constant cannabis users. (Don’t expect occasional or light users to bring any as they don’t usually have much anyway)

I made a verity of edibles for people to try, as I love cooking and cannabis, so I tend to experiment with various foods. For my cannabis parties I had made infused cheese cake, lemonade, ice tea, cookies, and candies.Putting all infused foods on one table and letting people know what is and is not infused.

It is equally important to have non infused foods available as well. This is why I did a BBQ as well with a main course and several sides such as chips, pasta salads, veggie trays and more. Some people get the munchies from cannabis and don’t want them over indulging on cannabis edibles to satisfy their hunger. Have lots of water! People are likely to get dry mouth and want to quench their thirst. Both times I held these events more water was drank than soda. I had a large beach cool full of bottle water in ice. As the focus was cannabis not alcohol, I did not provide any and only a couple people had brought any and they only drank a small amount.

I also found that it is very helpful to have other things going on as well. I had card games going apples to apple and cards against humanity has everyone rolling in laughter. I eventually moved the party outside to a fire pit. This allows those that need time to cool down after consuming cannabis; possibly a larger dose than they are use to. If you are hosting a cannabis party, a cool down time needs to be part of your plan. You can’t feed people edibles, smoke and dab; then expect people to leave in a short period of time.

With cannabis being the center of the party verses when alcohol is the center of the party it makes for a more enjoyable atmosphere. Angry drunk fights just don’t happen. People are relaxed and in an enjoyable mood. This is why we must work to normalize cannabis use. It is a way better option than alcohol and safer at that.

I have really enjoyed having these parties and plan on hosting more of them in the future.

Have you ever had a cannabis centered party?

Update

I was not able to get a blog article written this week. I have been trying to enjoy the summer as in Maine it is very short. Join me on instagram to see some of my joint smoking fishing adventures.

I also recently ordered and received a copy of a new book, “Sex, Drug, Violence and the Bible,” that I plan on doing a review over. With my focus on what this book shows us about how cannabis was use in the bible.

Until next week,

Cannabis Bath Solution

I recently tried a new topical application of cannabis to help me with my pain and muscle tension caused by my fibromyalgia and it was amazing.

What you need to get to have your own cannabis bath solution.

img_2157.jpg

4 Cups of Water
60 rinsed soapberries aritha (These I could only find on-line)
4 TBS of freshly scrapped aloe. (Found a large leaf at my grocery store and had more than enough.)
The dried peal of an Orange. (After pealing an Orange I left the peals in an empty drawer to dry in a paper bag.)
Sunflower Lecithin.
15 Grams of ground decarboxilated Cannabis Flower (See my article on How and Why to Decarb Cannabis)
2 TBS of Lavender flowers (this I got at a natural food store.)
~2 TBS Olive Oil
1 cup of Course Himalayan Pink Salt

 

Step one:

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil then add in the soapberry aritha, orange peals, and lavender. Cover and let sit overnight or at least 12 hours.

Step two:

Melt Sunflower lecithin on low heat in a small sauce pan into olive oil. Once fully dissolved put decarbed cannabis into a jar and pour the olive oil with Sunflower lecithin melted in over the cannabis. Mix around until fully coated. Add a tiny amount more of olive oil if cannabis is not well coated. Let this sit overnight as well.

Step three:

After you let it sit over night mix the two together. Add in 2tbs of fresh aloe and simmer on low for 45 minute or until about half the water has evaporated. Then let this sit until it only warm to the touch–strain. (Keep leftovers to make second less potent bath solution.)

This solution is perishable and needs to be refrigerated or frozen.

Step Four:

Mix 1 cup of coarse Himalayan Pink Salt with 2tbs of fresh aloe then mix 1 cup of bath solution into salt; add to a bath and enjoy.

This bath will relax your muscles and relieve pain like a topical cannabis, but with this infusion process it also has a slight psychoactive effect and may effect different people differently. The longer you are in the bath the more of an effect you will feel. Plan accordingly and know how this will effect you before trying to do anything else.

I personally loved this application method of using cannabis.

This recipe was originally found in “The Cannabis Spa at Home,” I made a few small changes, but highly recommend getting your hands on that book as it has many great recipes in it.
