Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, the method of growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. This gives cultivators total control over nutrient levels, a faster harvest, an automated system and it’s possible to set up almost anywhere.
A grow light is an artificial electric light source, designed to stimulate plant growth by emitting a light appropriate for photosynthesis. For cannabis growers who are unable to cultivate outside in the free abundant sunshine, grow lights are necessary to successfully grow cannabis indoors.
Glassblowing is a glass forming technique that involves inflating molten glass into a bubble with the aid of a blowpipe or blow tube. Hand-blown glass pipes and bongs are lightweight with a clean aroma and don’t heat up on the outside, making them perfect for cannabis.
Cannabis concentrate is a highly potent THC concentrated mass most similar in appearance to honey. Hydrocarbons like butane and propane or the non-volatile supercritical Co2 are all popular solvents used in the extraction of the very versatile cannabis oil.
Vaporizing dry herb is a common technique for consuming cannabis that cuts out irritating respiratory toxins that are normally released when weed is smoked. Vaporizing cannabis still allows one to get at all of the psychoactive ingredients with less coughing.
A vape pen is a subtle and simple hand held device for using cannabis that vaporizes the active molecules in concentrated extract – typically distillate, BHO, or Co2 oil. Cartridges of concentrate, disposable or refillable, are usually screwed onto rechargeable batteries.
Edibles are food products containing cannabinoids, especially THC. Edible cannabis is metabolised by the liver, converting the THC to 11-hydroxy-THC. This metabolite is very effective at crossing the blood-brain barrier and creates an intense, long-lasting high.
