The Oldies (Lesser Known) Marijuana Songs

Marijuana and music are a natural combination. Countless musicians have either used cannabis to help unleash their creativity to write and compose music or to help them let go and perform at their best.

Here are some of the best songs ever written about cannabis. Note: I left out songs that aren’t explicitly about marijuana.

Every marijuana connoisseur knows all the ‘classic’ weed songs by groups like Cypress Hill, or Kotton Mouth Kings. Here are some from a little deeper in the bargain bin.

Number 10:

Sweat Leaf by Black Sabbath. I always wondered if the makers of Sweat Leaf tea know about this song? I think that granny on the bottle rocking out to Sabbath is an awesome image.

Number 9:

Don’t Bogart that Joint by Little Feat. I really like the message of sharing in this song.

Number 8:

Muddy Waters Champagne and Reefer. Classic blues with a pro-legalization slant.

“ Well you know there should be no law

on people that want to smoke a little dope.

Well you know it’s good for your head

And it relax your body don’t you know. ”

Number 7:

When I get low I get High by Ella Fitzgerald. Sure sounds like a good idea to me!

“ But I’m not gonna holler

’cause I’ve still got a dollar

And when I get low

Oooo I get high “

Number 6:

Fats Waller The Reefer Song. Nobody did it like the jazz artist of the 30s and 40s.

Number 5:

Seeds and Stems (again) as Commander Cody says “are you ready for the saddest song ever?”

Number 4:

Don’t Step on the Grass, Sam by Steppenwolf is call for legalization of marijuana and condemnation of the government.

“ Well it’s evil, wicked, mean and nasty

(Don’t step on the grass, Sam)

And it will ruin our fair country

(Don’t be such an ass, Sam)

Well, it will hook your Sue and Johnny

(You’re so full of bull, Sam)

All will pay that disagree with me

(Please give up you already lost the fight alright) “

Number 3:

Roll Another Number (for the road) by Neil Young is perfect for karaoke. It’s deliciously twangy and easy to sing along to.

Number 2:

Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 by Bob Dylan. Who can forget being a young kid and hearing this song for the first time and giggling their butt off? I can’t remember for sure, but I’m thinking the first time I heard this song, Cheech and Chong were involved somehow.

Number 1:

Nobody is cooler than Cab Calloway and his song Reefer Man is a swinging classic. Depending on your point of view it might not be the most pro marijuana song ever, but it sure is catchy.

How to Grow Marijuana with Fluorescent Lights

grow marijuana indoors using fluorescent lights

It’s possible to grow marijuana indoors using fluorescent lights and create an outstanding, mature potent harvest. All you’ve got to do is know the life cycles of your plant and mimic the environment that is most suitable for it.

standard four-foot fluorescent fixtures

Mimic means to emulate, not necessarily re-create, therefore, close is usually good enough. Light, temperature, medium, humidity, rain, nutrients. I use standard four-foot fluorescent fixtures purchased at your local Walmart, Lowes, or Home Depot for about eight dollars. Then I use a standard 40-watt residential bulb and an aquarium/terrarium bulb, also 40 watts. The two produce a nice and suitable combination of light. All of this is all pretty cheap.

fluorescent growing

Always keep the plants 2-4 inches from the bulbs at all phases of growth. With fluorescent growing, you grow near the bulbs because they are not hot like HPS or metal halide. Start with seeds on moist paper towels laid on a tray.

Cover them with another layer or two of paper towels. Put it in a dresser drawer for two days, checking on them every once in a while. They will soon sprout. Take those that do sprout and push them in 1-2 inches below the surface of your potting soil mixed with perlite. You want 80/20 dirt to perlite ratio.

Start with small 3-4 pots

Start with small 3-4″ pots (top diameter). Put under 24/7 fluorescent light. As they break the soil and grow upwards keep the lights adjusted to 2 inches over the tops.

Transplant to a six-inch pot

Transplant to a six-inch pot once the plant outgrows the starter pot, usually around week three.

After four weeks of vegetative growth you should be able to go to a 14 on 10 off cycle. Eventually, your strain will sex. Some will sex better and faster at 12 on and 12 off when growing with fluorescent light. I say start with four weeks of vegetative growth then move on to sexing/flowering.

It might actually be more than four weeks depending on your strain and how well it takes to fluorescent growing. I’ve had decent luck with the strain I’ve used and I look forward to trying different, established well-known strains.

how to see weed growing male pollen packets

The distinguishing factors when determining the sex of your plant are the pistils. You want to make sure you do not see any tiny pollen packets growing – this is a male plant indicator. I have discovered there are many ways to grow with normal seeds and soil. However, when you use newer technology and more expensive equipment, the techniques and methods and tastes vary a whole lot more.

Your plants will respond one way or another to different ecological changes thrown at it. If it appears you have only development and growth and eventually budding/maturing plants, it’s likely that you are doing something right.

Basically, all you do is germinate/sprout your seeds. Then stick them down in dirt medium. Place them on 24/7 lights and keep them watered as well as fed through the duration of vegetation. Finally, there’s the flowering stage and you should be all set.

look for cannabis flowering stageI hope your get your process down by attempting to grow some old seeds. If you’re like me and have a few lying around, get some to germinate. Plant them. Experiment. Ask questions. I will offer any help I can in my replies to your questions. I am not a professional but have had great success with fluorescent cannabis growing up to now.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay in Your System?

cannabis-drying-curing

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) can stay in a person’s body for as long as 3 to 90 days after smoking a bong or being ingested orally.

There are numerous determining factors for how long drug toxins stay in your body that differ from person to person, such as the method of use, your health, your body weight, metabolism, fluid intake, the type of drug, and the level of exposure to the drug toxin.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)

Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, one of nearly 400 chemicals in a cannabis plant, accounts for most of marijuana’s psychoactive mind-altering and medicinal effects. The potency of the drug is determined by the amount of THC it contains which varies from plant to plant. Marijuana stays in your system for different amounts of time depending on how often you smoke it, how much you smoke, and the composure of each individual.

Site note: There are many drug test kits available and some of them work. Try our eBook out:

If you smoke cannabis occasionally, it can remain in your system for up to 10 days. If you smoke marijuana on a regular basis, it can remain in your system for as long as 45 days. If you are a chronic cannabis smoker then THC can stay inside your system for up to 90 days.

Why is that?

Because marijuana is fat soluble. It stores in the fat cells of the body, the brain, the liver, the kidneys, and most other significant organs.

Delta-9-THC enters your bloodstream rapidly after smoking (in just few short minutes) or more slowly when ingested orally (40 minutes to 1.5 hours). It’s rapidly metabolized into inert molecules known as metabolites. These chemicals also have the word Tetrahydrocannabinol in them and are known as THC, which can be quite confusing.

psychoactive mind-altering and medicinal effects

Delta-9-THC is detectable in your blood for a couple of hours, but none of the active chemicals can found in your urine and none is stored in the fatty tissues like the liver and brain.

What most drug tests look for is not the lingering delta-9-thc, but the metabolites created as a byproduct. These usually linger around in your body fluids and organs for some time until it is disposed of when you go to the bathroom.

It is those metabolites that are detected in the body organs and urine, long after the effects of Delta-9-THC have worn off. These metabolites can even linger over 90 days. For occasional users, an average of 13 days was recorded. Some individuals had metabolites detectable for only three days. Others found the substances still in their urine after up to 30 days.

The only way to figure out how long cannabis stays in your system is to test it yourself. You would need to go and purchase tests kits at your local CVS. The ones at the Dollar store are worthless. You then enjoy a bowl and start testing yourself.

cbd alternative to stop smoking cannabis

Many people would believe this is a waste of their time. Fortunately, I have been able to test myself and secure a job multiple times after smoking cannabis. I figured out that cannabis stayed in my system for 15 days. It is better to know for sure than to guess. That way you can control your usage in a better way and still have a good time!

Everyone is different and some may have more cells metabolites can attach to. I’ve personally known friends who have passed tests the same day as smoking. This is just an example and I highly suggest you stay away from trying to pass a drug test after smoking the same day. I believe he happened to pass the test because he was very thin had little to no extra fatty tissues.

How to Dry and Cure Your Marijuana for Maximum Potency

cannabis curing and drying stage

Drying marijuana buds generally takes from two – six weeks and curing cannabis can take two weeks up to two or more months. Drying time also depends on where you live and the location you dry your plants as well as the soil used. Places in a desert would dry cannabis faster, and tropical areas would take longer.

Drying your cannabis buds

Drying your cannabis buds

The first step after harvesting your marijuana buds is the drying stage. This can be done by taking the cut cannabis branches and hanging them upside down so that the fan leaves droop and cover the buds. During this step, you want to place the branches in a cool dark place (not humid) with enough ventilation. It’s very important there’s enough air circulation in the room. You can get the air moving with a simple fan or two.

It’s best to check up on the buds each day to watch for signs of mold or mildew and fix the problem if anything happens. After the fan leaves droop down over the flowers and turn crisp or break off easily, you’d want to start trimming off the fan leaves only.

Trim your cannabis fan leaves before drying.

It would be better to cut the leaves off before drying your marijuana buds since it will be far more difficult to cut off the fan leaves after the buds have dried. So, I suggest you to cut them off before you hang your marijuana branches upside down.

harvesting your marijuana buds

The point for drying your cannabis this way is to dry it slowly but not too fast. If you dry your buds too fast it’ll make them smell like pine needles, hay, or taste bad. Drying your buds too slow isn’t a fantastic idea either because often mold and mildew will grow.

After the fan leaves are trimmed, you need to hang it up to dry since the marijuana buds will still be moist or wet. At this point the cut stocks should still have their little inner leaves. These will droop and cover the buds when hung.

Hang the branches in a cool dark place with proper ventilation until the little leaves and bud tips turn crisp to the touch. This is when you will know that it is time to remove your buds from their branches. This is also the time to use your creative mind and figure out a way to get rid of the extra leaf material.

This is what is known as trimming of marijuana buds. Trimming is usually done before the bud is hung because it allows the actual buds to dry faster as well as it removes a microclimate where bacteria can grow.

After a few short days of drying, you will notice your buds will be a little moist on the inside. This stuff can be packed into a bong and smoked or you can complete the full curing process by following the steps below.

How to cure your marijuana with a brown paper bag

How to cure your marijuana with a brown paper bag

After your marijuana buds are trimmed (and a little moist) you want to dry them further using the brown paper bag method. The best choice would be a brown shopping bag located at any supermarket. You want a brown one because it is unbleached. Unbleached is very important because this will ensure your buds do not collect any synthetic contaminants.

Next throw in the trimmed buds into the brown paper bag loosely. Try not to fill it too much, you want a layer of four inches of buds. Don’t fill the bag to the top because mold and mildew can contaminate your buds.

When your cannabis is curing in the brown paper bag you want to look at it each day and rotate the buds in the bag so they dry evenly. This can be accomplished by shifting positions of the cannabis buds, turning them often or shaking the bag.

As your buds dry they will naturally compact to a self-preserving state. At this time your buds can be compacted together and the bag can be folded close. By compacted I mean lightly pushed down or vacuumed sealed.

Just be sure to remember that all climates and environments are different. Some cannabis may dry faster than others. Some may develop mildew or mold and will need to be tossed out. One of the best ways of avoiding this is by checking on your drying progress daily.

How to cure your marijuana with canning jars

How to cure your marijuana with canning jars

Your last step is to find a way to bring out the full flavor and smoke from your cannabis buds. This can be done by using an air tight jar or something similar. Make sure you use an air tight container! Put the dried buds inside your jar without compacting them.

It is very import, when curing cannabis buds using this method, you open up each jar and introduce fresh oxygen at least once a day. Shaking the container will also help with even drying. You can do this up to 10 days until you are satisfied with the moisture quality of your buds.

You have to be on the lookout for mold and mildew when curing your cannabis with jars. Every day when you open them up be sure to look for dark brown, light green, or black spots. Also, be sure to smell each container as this can be an easy way to determine if your buds are contaminated.

If you happen to find one contaminated bud then you should throw it away as soon as possible. You can then take the rest of the buds and start with the brown paper bag curing method above.

This cannabis curing method can take anywhere from two weeks to two months. Really it all depends on how you want you buds to develop its distinguishing characteristics. The longer the curing process takes, the better.

How to determine when your bud is cured?

How to determine when your bud is cured

A bud is totally dry, cured, and ready for consumption once the stem in the center of the bud snaps easily with the fingers. The snap is easy to detect with practice. Your marijuana buds can now be sealed and stored for a very long period of time without developing mold or mildew.

Lastly, there are many different ways of curing cannabis, however, I believe this is the best way and it has never failed me.

How To Clone Your Marijuana Plant Made Simple

how-to-clone-your-marijuana-plants

There is no better way to keep the quality and integrity of an exceptional marijuana plant, than to create an exact duplicate of it. Luckily, in her infinite wisdom, Mother Nature provided the means of doing that. I’m going to teach you how you can start with Marijuana Cloning!

The basics of cloning marijuana plants

Cloning marijuana success

I’m not going to go over the fundamentals of the botanic reproduction cycle, nor do I plan on explaining the process of regeneration at the molecular level. I also will not bore you to tears outlining things like oxygen and soil conditions. Today I will tell you how I clone my favorable marijuana crops.

Go buy the materials needed.

To begin with, there’s a couple of things you want to pick up prior to cloning cannabis. The best places to go would be either a Walmart, Lowes or Home Depot. Make sure to grab some extra more miracle-gro moisture control potting soil while you’re there. Can never have enough.

Grab plant rooting hormone

cannabis plant rooting horomone

For cloning cannabis, we need to grab some plant rooting hormone. You can find it in the plant section or the garden center, which all stores should have. Most will be on the side of the store. Look for a fence and flowers, that’s where you can find most of your growing supplies.

If you have any problems finding it, you can always ask the clerk. On the other hand, if you don’t want to call attention to yourself, you can find it by spending some time and looking.

Grab peat pellets

growing cannabis in peat pellets

Now you need some peat pellets for cloning your cannabis. Most garden centers seem to supply trays of twenty-five. You want to look for the larger pellets. These will be used with the soil to create an enriched grow medium. Check out the image below so that you can get an idea what it is where looking for. You can also do a simple Google search for peat pellets to see if local shops sell any locally.

Anyway, they usually put the peat pellets with the pots and planters. Sometimes they have a display at the checkout counter (in the garden center) so be sure to check there as well.

Mixing the soil for cloning cannabis

Now, head on home, and follow the directions below to create your cloning cannabis in grow medium:

First you need to gather a few household items and prepare a few things:

  • Razor blade: Any kind will due as long as it is sharp and clean, and by clean I mean not rusty or dripping with oil. If it looks clean just wash it off carefully with a paper towel and use it.
  • Planter or container: seven or eight inches in diameter, and seven or eight inches high. Whatever you decide to use will probably work, but you’ll want to fill it with potting soil same as you would for any start or transplant. You will need one per clone.
  • Shallow dish or bowl: Filled with some water, deep enough to dip the stem in without touching the base of the container.
  • Peat pellets: These you’ll need to wet down and expand completely, it should look like a tiny brown blown up saucer, or whatever, when they are fully saturated. Just follow the instructions that comes on the packaging. You’ll use one of these per clone.
  • Plant rooting hormone: The best thing to do would be to pour or scoop appropriate amount into a clean and dry small container and place it next to the bowl of water.

Cloning your cannabis plant

Now you are ready to clone your marijuana crops. It is always best to work on a desk or a flat surface. Make sure you have everything in reach since it’s important to get a freshly trimmed clone to its grow medium as quickly as possible.

Using a toothpick or small poker, clear a small hole about a quarter inch deep into the tops of each peat pellet. The hole has to be just as wide as the stalks of the clippings.

choosing stem when cloning cannabit with rooting horomone

Assuming your marijuana plant is doing well and has lots of new growth, carefully pick a small branch. Estimate at least a quarter to half inch distance from the stem and cut it off on a slight angle from the host plant.

cut it off on a slight angle from the host cannabis plant

Without touching the cut end of the marijuana clone dip it into the water and then into the plant rooting powder.

dip the cannabis into rooting powder horomone

Now carefully insert your clone into the hole you’ve prepared in the peat pellet. Try not to disturb the power, which has stuck to the cut end.

Gently press the top of the pellet to close the hole around the stem. Finally, bury your marijuana clone within a quarter inch of the top of the pellet. The plant into the awaiting planter.

Cloning marijuana success

cannabis clone wither and sag

You can look at your new marijuana clone as a new beginning. At first you will see your cannabis clone wither and sag within the first ten to fifteen minutes. There is nothing to worry about as long as you see the clone spring back to life in a few hours. This is the best part of cloning your own cannabis plant. You get to see life spring up in front of you, literarily.

Here is a helpful hint for the serious growers: If you are cloning from multiple plants be sure to index and identify the clones. You always want to be able to match your plant to their prospective hosts.

How to Transplant Your Marijuana Plant and What Nutrients to Use

How to Transplant Your Marijuana Plant

Unless you have planted your seeds into a pot large, that is enough to sustain a full-scale increase, then you’ll have to transplant your young plant a couple of times, in order to ensure maximum return. A germinating marijuana plant will quickly outgrow its starter cup, and the root bound plant will grow very slowly.

A good guideline to go by is to check your plant size against the cup size – when the plant gets taller than the container it’s in, then it’s time to transplant. Another indication would be droopy leaves or a plant that requires a lot of water – these are sure signs that your plant has outgrown its pot.

transplant your young plant

Another good guideline would be to transplant the marijuana plant into a container that’s double the size of the present one, or bigger. This allows the roots to spread out and develop. Marijuana requires one foot of soil height for each foot of plant height, so prepare to have a minimum of a 5 gallon container for the final transplant.

Water your plant just enough to moisten the roots. If the soil is moist, it is going to hold together better for the transplant process. Fill the container with potting soil, leaving enough room to place the plant and root ball in.

Place your hand over the top of the cup, keeping the stem between the thumb and fingers. Turn the small container over and ease the cup off the plant. Gently set the plant upright into the new soil, then fill in the rest of the larger container with dirt. Give the plant a thorough watering, as this will loosen the roots and allow them to begin spreading and growing. Tidy up your area, and you’re done.

What food and nutrients should you use for your marijuana?

Marijuana requires one foot of soil height

Marijuana plants require food to grow. The three main elements are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). These are needed for strong root growth, strong vegetative growth, and for lush, full flowering and high yields.

Most potting soils include a balanced NPK ratio that will sustain a plant for the first 2-3 weeks. However, as the plant grows taller and wider, supplemental nutrients are required.

At the vegetative phase, about 20 supplements are often adequate to maintain proper growth and development. Most growers dilute this formulation to one-half or one-quarter strength, as cannabis doesn’t tolerate full-strength nutritional supplement feedings well. This may be given once or twice per week, although some growers use it in each feeding.

In the flowering stage, a higher ratio of phosphorus is needed to promote and encourage flowering, as these flowers are the bud sites, and the number of flowers affect the end yield. Phosphorus alone or phosphorus in a greater ratio is often utilized in this stage.

cannabis transplant process

Secondary foods which the marijuana plants need are Calcium, Sulphur, and Magnesium. These foods guarantee that plant photosynthesis is maintained, allowing strong growth and good development.

The basic minerals a plant needs are boron, copper, molybdenum, zinc, iron and manganese. The marijuana plant takes up a minimal amount of these components, but they are necessary to the overall well-being of your plant.

All of these nutrients work together to maintain healthy growth and development. Plants will grow poorly or not at all if deprived of any one of these nutrients. If the lack is intense, the plant may go into a nutrient lockout, which is the absence of a single nutrient blocking the uptake of all the rest, thus causing the plant to die.

Careful occasional evaluation of your plant will determine whether it’s healthy and secure, or lacking in any of these nutrients. These problems may be fixed but correcting them is vital to the continued growth and development of your own plant.

The Vegetative and Flowering Stages of Marijuana

vegetative and flowering stages of cannabis

When your seedling has thrust its head through the soil, it enters into the vegetative stage of growthVegetation simply means to be growing.

The vegetative stage is a short time where your marijuana plant will be growing as fast as possible. Photosynthesis begins immediately. This is the period where your plant will develop its height, stem thickness and will start developing side branches. During this time, it will also develop its future bud sites

This is a period of great natural stress for the crops, so care must be taken to maintain the appropriate temperature and humidity level, in addition to providing sufficient water, along with the nutrients required to obtain maximum development.

The flowering stage of your cannabis plant

Transplanting is done during this period, it is always best to transplant as few times as possible, as each transplant shocks your plant and stunts its growth for a few days. Your plant has to be handled gently during each transplant. Some people let their plant sit in the dark until it recovers from the transplant. Some will keep the typical light schedule.

Overwatering or underwatering also shocks your plant, forcing growth to a halt for a short time, so be sure and check your plant often and make sure that it’s getting sufficient water, but take care not to give it too much.

Lighting is mandatory for good vegetative growth. It is crucial to prevent sudden blackouts, a lot of hours of sudden daylight, or light leaks, since these issues will cause your plant to become a hermaphrodite.

Regular potting soil provides sufficient nutrients for the first 2 – 3 months. After that, your plants need to be inspected frequently to spot symptoms of nutrient deficiency and treated immediately if any problems are found.

Marijuana will remain in a vegetative state until the lights are switched on – this is often called flipping. When your plant is determined to be ready for flowering, or if space and time are of great concern, then your plant is ready to go to flowering stage.

The flowering stage of your cannabis plant

Once your marijuana plant has reached 12 inches, or to the height of your choice, it is time to start the flowering phase. The plant will start to preflower, then it will fully flower.

Growth Stage Hours of Light Hours of Darkness
Seedling 16 – 24 8 – 0
Clone 18 – 24 6 – 0
Vegetative 18 6
Flowering 12 12

You can now expose your plant to a regular 12 hours of daylight / 12 hours of night cycle. Alternatively, you can begin with 14-hours daylight / 10-hours night cycle and gradually adjusted until the 12/12 cycle is attained. Some growers will take the light steadily back into a 10/14 schedule, or even as far back as an 8/16. This is determined by each grower’s taste.

Pre-flowering usually begins in the fourth week. Pre-flowering can only be determined with a closer look at your plant. At the 4th node down the stem, you should be able to see a tiny pear-shaped node. This node determines if your plant is female. You should also see two miniature pistils. Occasionally the pistils will not develop for several days during the start of pre-flowering. Make sure you determine if your plant is male or female before you choose to pull it.

The complete flowering starts 1 to 2 weeks

The complete flowering starts 1 to 2 weeks after altering the light schedule. In a few days, most or all the nodes on the marijuana plant will be covered in white pistils. These will begin to develop into flowers, which will reach their maturity in 6 to 8 weeks’ time.

The buds will also develop at these nodes. They will be covered with white crystals, and when close to maturity the trichomes will be able to be seen. These start out as white and clear, then turn amber or get darker, and the small white pistils turn red or get darker as well. When you find these changes beginning to occur, pay close attention to your plant, because soon they will be ready for harvesting.

harvest when the trichomes are white

The buds are ready for harvest when the trichomes are white, or you may wait until they darken. Most of the time only some buds will be ready while the trichomes in others are still developing. If this should happen, you can then cut off the ripened buds and leave the rest to grow for a week or two more. This will guarantee a maximum yield and it won’t kill your plant.

What Types of Soil Should You Use When Growing Marijuana Plants?

What Types of Soil Should You Use When Growing Marijuana Plants

Ignore whoever told you plants don’t need food. Maybe not during the first 12 days, but after they germinate, like all living plants, your cannabis will need food to live. They may have been referring to using potting soil with added nutrients and fertilizer. Adding more fertilizer to potting soil already saturated with nutrients will fry your plants.

The best potting soils have a mixture of compost and peat moss, with seabird/bat guano, seaweed/kelp, worm castings and a bit of hydrated lime and perlite. Some growers like to add lots of perlite but you should never use more than 15% in my opinion. Soil with these organic nutrients doesn’t need any additional nutrients for the first 4 weeks or so. Then it will be time to add small amounts of nutrients to the water when you water your plants.

For a beginner, I’d recommend FoxFarm nutrients. You’ll need one type for the vegetative stage and another kind for the flowering stage.

Top quality potting soil is expensive. Fox Farms Ocean, Forest, Black Gold Potting Soil start at $10.00/bag. Luckily it is very cost effective. Your plants will grow faster, be a lot healthier, and you’ll have more buds to harvest.

Growing cannabis in soil common questions

How do I know which dirt is perfect for me to buy?

which dirt is perfect for me to buy

Do some reading on the subject, marijuana requires certain elements in order to grow well, so the better soil mix you buy, the better growth and yield you will have in the end. When buying soil, you really get what you pay for, trust me.

My soil cracks into chunks when it gets dry and my plants aren’t growing much at all. What’s wrong?

soil cracks into chunks when it gets dry

Your soil is too tightly packed to permit the roots to grow and distribute. Compacted soil will choke a plant and stunt the development. Remove your plant, add some perlite or moss or other additive to the soil mixture, then transplant. It should perk up and begin growing in a day or two.

I just planted five seeds, but I have 8 sprouts in my cups. How can this happen?

Chances are you used old soil or (cheap) affordable soil. Pull the ‘weeds’ as soon as possible, but make sure you don’t pull your bud seedlings out by mistake!

I started 2 other grows using this soil, but my other plants all died. Can I still use this?

2 other grows using this soil

That depends on why they died. If they were good seeds and you gave them great care, then I believe your soil has issues or is contaminated. The best thing is to dispose of it and purchase new, better grade of dirt.

Help! My dirt is filled with brown bugs! Can my two-week-old plant be saved?

My dirt is filled with brown bug

That sounds like a terrible infestation. If the plant looks healthy, spray it down with a soap mixture, then remove it from the pot, gently shake the dirt out of the roots, and transplant it into fresh soil, after you wash your container well. Throw all of the old dirt out, it can’t be used for anything.

My soil was EXPENSIVE, why cannot I reuse it?

Reusing soil is a matter for much debate. Some growers do, some don’t. Some will include fertilizer and nutrients, then flush it out and allow it to sit between grows. Some use the same soil over and over with great results, while others throw it on the compost heap as soon as the crops are cut. I would think, the better the soil, to begin with, the more reusable it would be.

I saw four distinct brands of dirt in the garden center today. How do I tell which is best?

four distinct brands of dirt

Compare the ingredients in each bag, then go with the one that has the ingredients you want inside. If it doesn’t satisfy you, you can always change to a different brand.

I planted my seeds in plain soil. What do I do?

planted my seeds in plain soil

Purchase a bag of soil at the local shop and transplant your seedlings, as soon as possible.

What type of cup do I start my seeds in? How much dirt? How much water?

Any small container will do – make sure it is 3-4 inches deep and has drainage holes in the bottom. Fill it to ½ inch on the top with dirt. Water with half to one ounce of water daily until it sprouts.

Can I keep my seeds on the stove to germinate?

Yes. Your germinating seeds have to be kept nice and warm and be sure the soil stays moist too.

What Are The Different Marijuana Effects When Smoking Cannabis

What Are The Different Marijuana Effects When Smoking Cannabis

Scientists and physicians have learned a great deal about how THC acts in the brain to produce its many marijuana effects. When someone smokes marijuana, THC rapidly passes from the lungs into the bloodstream, which carries the chemical to organs throughout the body, including the brain.

In the brain, THC connects to specific sites called cannabis receptors on nerve cells and influences the activity of those cells. Some brain areas have many cannabinoid receptors; others have few or none. Many cannabinoid receptors are found in the areas of the brain that influence pleasure, memory, thought, concentration, sensory and time perception, and coordinated movement.

What are the short-term marijuana effects?

Short-term marijuana effects

The short-term effects of marijuana can include problems with memory and learning; distorted perception; difficulty in thinking and problem solving; loss of coordination; and increased heart rate. Learn more about short-term effects of cannabis here.

What are the long term marijuana effects?

Long term marijuana effects

Research findings for long-term marijuana use indicate some changes in the brain similar to those found after long-term use of other major drugs of abuse. By way of example, cannabis withdrawal in chronically exposed animals leads to an increase in the activation of the stress-response system and changes in the activity of nerve cells containing dopamine. Dopamine neurons are little electric impulses involved in the regulation of motivation and reward and are directly or indirectly affected by all drugs of abuse.

Marijuana effects everyone differently. My opinion is that many studies revealed by non-profit organizations and the government intentionally lie about facts to scare people who’ve never tried marijuana. Everything I said above would appear very frightening to a new bong smoker.

What are the positive marijuana effects?

Positive marijuana effects

Marijuana does have positive effects, such as pain relief, assisting with meditation (yoga), anxiety relief, problems with gaining weight (hunger simulating), the ability to do something (energy giving), and bringing people closer together.

Any other marijuana effects?

Other marijuana effects

Using my anecdotal evidence, I can conclude that individuals sometimes blame marijuana for its bad side effects so that they have an excuse for their (illegal) actions. I believe that cannabis should be treated with a lot of responsibility and respect.

If you drink a lot you know that sometimes you get in ugly fights and arguments. The same follows with marijuana, if you smoke cannabis, sometimes you won’t have a good time. This doesn’t apply to everyone, it mostly applies to the people who have no prior experience with smoking cannabis. Sometimes if I feel the experience turning sour, I go for an evening jog. This helps settle my thoughts and relaxes my whole body.

Cannabis side effects to look for

Cannabis side effects to look for

I’ve been in social groups smoking cannabis and saw how it affected many of the people there. The edgy people became angry, restless, jumpy, depressed, sleepy, and some extremely paranoid. Usually, I try to stay away from smoking with these type personalities. They can ruin your experience very quickly and someone can get hurt.

The best way to experience a great session is to gather a handful of your buddies in a private setting, turn on some of your favorite tunes, and rip your best bong. The mellow and relaxed environment will ensure you have the best experience with cannabis.

common side effects of marijuana

Some of the common side effects of marijuana are:

  • Trouble remembering things
  • Sleepiness
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Altered time perception
  • Auditory enhancement
  • Munchies
  • Laziness
  • Slight hallucinations

Some of us aren’t affected by these side effects of marijuana. Many effects are related with the person’s current well-being. For example, those who have a history of psychological or health problems should be advised not to smoke or ingest cannabis. Unless it was proven that it would not affect his or her behavior.

First-time marijuana smokers should always use a small dose to see how it affects their body and mind. This is a good way to figure out if marijuana is OK for you with the minimal side effects and risks associated with smoking marijuana.

physical-adverse effects of marijuana

The physical adverse effects of marijuana can include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Tremor
  • Reduced coordination Increased heart rate
  • Altered pulmonary status
  • Altered body temperature
  • Reduced muscle strength
  • Decreased cerebral blood flow
  • Increased food consumption

Marijuana causes physical side effects as well when used in large doses. Some of these side effects can be cured with homemade remedy’s that are rather simple. Water or juice is very good at preventing dry mouth (cotton mouth). Sugar and fat free foods are also great in fixing the enormous appetite you might encounter when smoking or ingesting marijuana. If you have a problem with nausea or headache, a warm bath will help. You should avoid smoking marijuana and drinking liquids that contain caffeine, and fatty foods with a lot of sugar. You should also avoid excessive exercise as you may go to hard and hurt yourself.

neuropsychiatric adverse effects of marijuana

The neuropsychiatric adverse effects of marijuana:

  • Anxiety and panic
  • Paranoia
  • Confusion
  • Aggressiveness
  • Hallucinations
  • Sedation
  • Altered libido Possible suicidal ideation
  • Depersonalization
  • Derealization
  • Poor sense of time
  • Worsened short-term memory
  • Addictive behaviours
  • Amotivational syndrome

There are also cannabis side effects that alter the brain. These kinds of side effects are generally related to cognitive disorders. It is highly recommended to those who suffer from emotional disorders (anxiety, depression, anorexia) should stay away from smoking cannabis.

Smoking marijuana will have a significant impact on those who cannot control the altered reality experienced. So, it is highly suggested that you stay away from cannabis if you experience any of these negative side effects.

Luckily marijuana is known to be relatively safe, so if you happen to smoke a little too much don’t be worried! You will return back to normal in just a few short hours. It also helps having a good friend nearby because they can help keep you relaxed and out of harms way. Marijuana effects everyone differently and everyone will have a different experience with this substance. The only way to see if you will enjoy cannabis is to give it a try.

What is Marijuana Withdrawal and How to Cure Withdrawal Symptoms

What is Marijuana Withdrawal and How to Cure Withdrawal Symptoms

The definition of withdrawal,

Drug withdrawal is the group of symptoms that occur upon the abrupt discontinuation or decrease in intake of medications or recreational drugs” – Wikipedia

According to animal research and controlled studies of cannabis smokers during therapy of dependence, suggest that marijuana, exactly like with other drugs of dependence, experience withdrawal symptoms of many forms. Signs of marijuana addiction are very similar to that of tobacco addiction, they urge.

what is cannabis withdrawal

Marijuana withdraw symptoms include:

Signs of marijuana withdrawal first arise in serious habitual users within the first 8 hours and would be the most noticeable during the first ten days, but withdrawal symptoms can persist as long as 45 days. The withdrawal from marijuana is recognizable by behavioral and psychological distress.

Most individuals believe marijuana is a benign drug that makes you have the munchies, there’s debate in the scientific community about whether withdrawal causes significant symptoms. I think that it is dependent upon the persons personality.

For an example, someone that has a history of anger, depression, cognitive disorders, or perhaps mixes another drug with cannabis, can raise the symptoms of marijuana withdrawal. Individuals who use marijuana without thinking of its side effects also demonstrate a great deal of irresponsibility. Their altered perception or thoughts, while intoxicated on marijuana, may make them feel the need for this feeling.

The best way to prevent cannabis withdrawal effects would be to use it in little doses and avoid taking it on a daily basis. Smoking marijuana takes a lot of responsibility and discipline in determining when the medication is suitable to use at the present moment.

It’s best to avoid thinking that almost anything is achievable while using cannabis. While most of the times it is, you want to avoid situations where you could be the direct result of a financial, physical, or emotional diversity. For example, avoid smoking cannabis should situations where you have to operate machinery potentially come up, or where critical and fast thought process is required. Do not smoke if you need a lot of concentration, labor, operating a car or machinery. It’s just common sense.

marijuana addiction

The symptoms of marijuana withdrawal include but are not Limited to:

  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Physical tension
  • Decreases in mood and appetite
  • Stomach pain
  • Physical tension
  • Restlessness
  • Anorexia
  • Insomnia
  • Increased aggression/anger
  • Strange dreams

Since cannabis is an illegal substance in many of the states, lots of men and women consider using marijuana for substance abuse. Substance abuse is the maladaptive pattern of recurrent substance use created by recurring common adverse effects (effects and side effects).

Not everybody suffers the withdraw symptoms of marijuana. Just like cigarettes and alcohol, smoking cannabis is much of smokers’ daily rituals. A lot of people can build businesses, attend festivals and treat physical as well as emotional pain all while hitting the bong every day. It’s not hard to get things done while stoned out of your mind.

Just like all meds everyone reacts differently. It’s great practice to take a rest from cannabis for a month or more, so that the withdraw symptoms can be recognized by the individual themselves. You can then counter these symptoms of a few simple remedies that actually work.

cannabis withdrawal

Things that can help you take a break from cannabis include (but not limited to):

  • Composing a daily log of events
  • Listening to music
  • Taking walks
  • Hanging out with a person who does not smoke marijuana
  • Remind yourself to think positive
  • Set a goal to achieve (and period of time to finish)
  • Tell others what you’re doing for yourself

Be creative, there are a lot more of these ideas out there. Use these ideas as a starting point and figure it out from there. Distracting yourself will prevent the withdrawal symptoms of marijuana, as long as you’re positive about it rather. Don’t go to other drugs to cover the unwanted withdrawal effects. This include cigarettes! Having simply one negative thought can bring on a whole set of chain reactions that literally enhance and increase your withdrawal symptoms.

cure marijuana withdrawals

Lastly the strength to stop smoking marijuana comes from the individual themselves. Marijuana shouldn’t be blamed for dependence because of the effects it has. If you think you’ll have a problem using cannabis then simply do not use it. It is all about responsibility as well as the reputation you give cannabis.

How to Germinate Cannabis Seeds With Paper Towels

How to Germinate Cannabis Seeds

The planters, the soil, the lights, check-check-check. You have everything you need to start growing your first plants but now you have to get the seeds to sprout. What is the best method of germinating your cannabis seeds, where should you keep your seeds while you are waiting for them to germinate? We go in depth below and explain in detail the best way to germinate your cannabis seeds and have them ready for the next stage of growth.

It all starts with finding the right seeds

Marijuana-Seeds

The easiest place to find seeds would probably be in that Frisbee under your car seat, in the bottom of your bag, the bar you were at last night, or in the ashtray next to your couch. Sadly, this probably won’t be very good seed stock because… well, lets face it, good weed doesn’t come with seeds in it.

Most of the cannabis purchased with a high seed count is imported from Mexico, the islands, or some other southern country. This means that the plant grown from these seeds will take a long time to complete their growth stages. If you grow outdoors, in most of North America, your plants will not finish before the dreaded first frost. Meaning you will get nothing for all your hard effort.

There are several ways to obtain good seeds.

The safest and preferred way is to get them from someone you know. If you don’t have a friend to get seeds from, there are a lot of seed banks in Europe and Canada that will ship to the U.S. Receiving seeds through the mail falls into a legal gray area, but in most parts of the U.S. it is against the law. Note: Most larger seed banks will not ship to the U.S., but if you ask they might be able refer you to a distributor who will.

I have never received seeds from a seed bank via mail, so I cannot give any references. Just remember to use your head and don’t get ripped off. I don’t think you’ll be writing any letters to the Better Business Bureau if you fail to receive your order.

So now you have the best seed stock you can find, and you’re ready to germinate – let’s get to work.

Germinating your cannabis seeds with paper towels

germinating cannabis seeds with paper towelGerminating seeds is very easy; all you need is a few paper towels, a plate or bowl and some Saran Wrap.

First, place a few paper towels at the bottom of your dish. Put your seeds near the middle of the paper towel, leave a centimeter or so between each seed. Lay another 2 or 3 paper towels on top of the seeds. Dampen the paper towels with bottled water. Do not use too much water as the goal is to keep the paper towels moist, but not soaked.

how-to-germinate-cannabis-seeds-with-paper-towelDo not let the paper towels dry out completely.

Cover the dish with Saran Wrap, this will keep most of the moisture from evaporating. Put the dish in a dark place at room temperature. It does not matter if you germinate in light or darkness but light will provide needed heat. Check your seeds every few days – it can take from 2 to 16 days for germination.

Tips for germinating cannabis seeds

germinating-marijuana-seeds paper towel

  • Don’t “check” to see if the seeds are doing anything! Touching the germinating seeds will surely kill them at this stage!
  • Seeds can take 2-16 days to germinate. Sometimes longer! Don’t let the paper towel to dry during germination. Also seeds from the same cannabis plant may germinate at different times! Wait at least 2-3 weeks. Many assume that no more seeds will germinate after a few days. Only to find them germinating in the garbage!
  • Spray the seedlings with water only if the paper towels are starting to dry.
  • Germinate a handful of seeds at the same time, some may not germinate right away.
  • Germination will take much longer and the rate will decrease if the seeds are left to germinate at cool room temperatures (approx. 65-70 degrees) This happens more noticeably with tropical strains of cannabis.
  • Use distilled water. If you can’t find distilled water let your tap water sit for 24 hours to evaporate chlorine.
  • Be patient, follow these tips, and you and your buds will soon start your fantastic growing journey!

Top 4 Things to Consider Before Growing Cannabis At Home

top 4 things to consider before growing cannabis at home

Hobbies come from all different types of interests. Some love to cook. Others enjoy activities such as yoga, paint ball, tennis, basket weaving, or hitting the bong. Then there are those that just have a natural green thumb. Many call these people gardeners. I however, consider myself a professional. Yes, I am a cannabis farmer.

Maybe you’ve been thinking growing your own indoor garden would be a fun hobby. And, that’s exactly why I’m here. However, since vegetables basically suck and taste like poop, I’m going to be your resident expert on the finer methods of growing weed.

Let’s start with a list of things to consider before you make the commitment to grow your own marijuana. That’s right…I said commitment. You have to be committed. That’s actually the first step. Commitment is required to keep your plants looking healthy and beautiful. Remember mindful meditation, energy exchange and strong intent is what will produce the largest yields and potent flowers. Now, onto the list of weed growing considerations.

#1 SECURITY

Weed security growing at home
Security is the no.1 consideration with good reason – growing marijuana is illegal. Of the 50 states only 9 have passed some sort of recreational cannabis law. All legalized states vary in growing cannabis laws; you should already know by now if your state allows the public to grow cannabis. For the rest of you, the word security could also be defined as concealment. Camouflage, if you will. The questions you need to ask yourself are:

  1. Do I mind breaking the law? It’s one thing to purchase a bag from a friend, but growing weed takes you into an entirely new prosecution category. Be sure to talk with a lawyer or local law enforcement to stay updated with your town/city rules on growing cannabis. Take notice that new laws and regulations can take up to two years to be in effect.
  2. Do I have a place to put my garden where it won’t be noticed by less-than-open-minded (usually uninvited) guests? You also want to make sure the spot you pick is out of the reach and/or smell of any service people. Although it seems unrealistic, you just never know when one of those pesky, “I wanted to be a cop”, electricians will come a calling.

#2 LIGHTS

weed grow lights
Hear me now! When I say lights, I mean big ass lights! Actually, lights are easy to find just about anywhere. If you’re a decent electrician, you can get what you need at a large hardware store. If you’re not handy with wiring, it makes more sense to get your light from a grow shop. After all, I’m a farmer, not a doctor.

Light is very important for gardening and delivers the required energy required by most plants. For growing, a 250w-1000w light is required to promote flowering. Here’s a little equation for you: The larger the garden, the larger the light you’ll need. Not trying to be smart, it is just that simple.

If you need help finding the right light for your garden, just ask. Don’t worry about getting into any trouble with the grow store staff. They’re probably stoned themselves. A bit of discretion is encouraged, but anyone working at a grow store knows why you’re buying a light from them.

Of course, with the recent legalization in some states, it’s not like grow stores are popping up in your town. It takes some time for the state government to implement new rules and regulations. It may take them up to two years to figure out the best way to introduce consumer cannabis. So, if you don’t have a grow store nearby don’t be too worried, more than likely, in just a few years recreational cannabis might be on the ballot.

#3 GROW MEDIUM

weed grow medium
There are several different types of grow medium to consider. The easiest is a potting soil mixture. One of my favorite soil recipes is:

  • 1 bag potting soil
  • 1 bag vermiculite
  • 1 bag perlite
  • A tablespoon of hydrated lime
  • A scoop of sterile cow shit

These ingredients are available at most local nurseries; Home Depot caries most gardening supplies as well. I don’t want you to get overwhelmed. Just about any type of soil mix will work for the beginner.

Remember cannabis is a normal plant and grows in most soils. There is no need to go too crazy with the ratios of each component. Follow each bags recommended ratios and everything should be just fine.

#4 PLANT GENTICS

weed genetics strains
Plant genetics is actually the second most important consideration. Yes, I probably should’ve listed this as 2 but give me a break. Genetics controls the quality, taste, smell, and most importantly; the high weed gives you- THC content.

If you don’t have any personal connections to get quality seeds from, there are several seed banks online that’ll ship seeds to states where recreational cannabis has been legalized. Canadian seed banks generally have the same stocks as dutch seed banks, and if they don’t, they likely have something similar.

You can also ask your local friends (that is if they enjoy cannabis) if they have any seeds from their last grow. Many people have taken up the hobby of growing cannabis at home and they likely will have some seeds for you from their last grow. Of course, you still will not know the exact strain but this is always the next best option if you cannot purchase any seeds.

If you do not have any friends the next best option would be to ask your buds tender or a local grow shop. Sometimes they have extra seeds ready to be thrown out. They usually do not mind helping a fellow grower and would hate to see the extra seeds go to waste.

Now go ahead and take a minute to absorb these main considerations when starting your own garden.

What do you think? Are you ready?

What is Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome And How To Cure CHS

cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome

Have you been feeling extremely nauseous, throwing up, or experiencing any abdominal pain after you smoke Cannabis? You might have something called Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome.

Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS), discovered in 2004, is a condition usually found with heavy marijuana smokers that leads to extreme nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. If you smoke at least 20 days in one month you can be considered a heavy cannabis smoker and you should be looking out for this symptom because it may affect you.

A recent New York cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome study of heavy cannabis smokers found that about one third of smokers reported symptoms pointing to CHS. The study also reported that users were able to relieve their symptoms with a simple trick—a hot shower.

If this study is valid, and it can be replicated, then an estimated 2.7 million Americans could be experiencing cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome. This cannabis syndrome could be the reason why you are feeling sick.

This almost unheard-of syndrome has doctors hypothesizing the causes of CHS and why hot showers relieve people’s symptoms.

“Essentially, patients who use marijuana very frequently for long periods of time—usually at least six months, probably most of them have been using for several years—develop sort of intractable abdominal pain and vomiting that sort of comes and goes over the course of days to weeks.” Dr. Kennon Heard told WBUR.

Dr. Heard is a professor of emergency medicine and pharmacology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

“CHS is concerning for people who have it, but it is not a major public health hazard.” Dr. Heard explains to WBUR.

Doctor Heard believes the frequent use of cannabis in high doses are to blame for cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome. Dr. Kennon Heard said the high doses causes changes to receptors in our body, making them dysfunctional, eventually leading to pain.

What is Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome?

how to cure cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome

CHS is a relatively new syndrome related directly to cannabis and needs to be studied further before any conclusions can be made.

Doctors have always known that any long-term use of drugs can result in nervous system and brain changes. In fact, it is common knowledge that endogenous cannabinoids, the compound inside our bodies that is very similar to compounds found in cannabis, are important for regulating and controlling the body’s pain system.

One idea for the cause of cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome is the long-term consumption of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. The long-term use of THC alters your body’s pain system enough to cause symptoms of CHS.

“Something in the pain system is disturbed by having THC around all the time,” Heard told Live Science.

This is still just a hypothesis. In fact, most doctors don’t know the exact cause of cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome. This is somewhat alarming because medicinal marijuana is usually prescribed for cancer patients, who are undergoing chemotherapy, that suffer from nausea and vomiting.

This condition will never be a serious threat, but it can really limit your experience and cause unwanted ER visits.

“something we see in our ER several times a week, if not on a daily basis,” Herd told Live Science.

Fifteen years ago, Dr. Kennon Heard was skeptical if CHS was a real condition. Now he believes cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome is a condition everyone should be aware of.

If you are suffering from CHS and would like immediate relief, don’t be worried, there is a simple solution—a hot shower.

How to Cure Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome

cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome cure

If you’re feeling the symptoms of CHS it could be because you just smoked some Cannabis. If your nauseous or have any abdominal pain, its time to jump into a hot shower. This is the only known cure for cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome right now.

So why does a hot shower cure CHS?

Hot showers always leave you feeling relaxed and fresh due to the water temperature and sensory signals set off. This is the main reason why a hot shower is a good cure for CHS. The hot water produces different sensory signals that then interfere and distract your body from other pain signals.

Hot showers are a distraction for your CHS symptoms, providing you with instant relief. This of course is not a permanent cure for your conditions.

If you are looking to permanently cure your cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome then put down the bong and STOP SMOKING CANNABIS. This is the only known permanent cure. In fact, Dr. Heard’s co-workers discovered that nighty seven percent of patients had stopped experiencing CHS symptoms after they had quit smoking marijuana.

Glow Art Graffiti Party For Stoned People High On Cannabis

glow paint party on cannabis

Tired of the same old casual routine of getting high and staring at the TV? Learn how to turn a normal night of pot-smoking into a social event. You don’t have to host a fabulous dinner party for a get together with friends. Let us entertain you with our glow art idea.

Ok, I know what you’re thinking. Why does everything involved with smoking marijuana have to end in the viewing of florescent colors? Well… why not? I mean you’re here so you obviously enjoy the consumption of weed. And, as smokers, we all know how enjoyable bright lights and fun colors can be. So, sit back and relax. Bake your pot brownies, munch down and come along. That’s right, come join me in our high idea of Glow Art Graffiti.

Supplies that will be needed:

  1. Black Light
  2. Variety of florescent paints (large bottles)
  3. Paint brushes, sponges or whatever you like to paint with
  4. Large roll of white paper
  5. Tape
  6. Stereo
  7. Drinks
  8. Lots of Cannabis
  9. An empty room to play in

The Basic Glow Graffiti Idea

glow body art high idea

Oh.. you’ll love this.  Basically, this involves you and a group of friends getting together and creating some high art!  Lock yourselves in a room and paint the walls, the floor and each other.  What could be better!

(Okay, I’m sure there are many answers to that but bear with me here. You have to admit… it sounds pretty fun.)

Now let’s get onto the steps to glow art graffiti

Step 1

Make a guest list of 5-8 friends to join you.

When creating this list, you always need to take into consideration the personalities of the people who should be invited. People with a wild sense of adventure are ideal. Invite guests who play nice with one another.

Step 2

Create your invitation.

Make sure you tell your guests to come wearing all white clothes that they don’t mind getting dirty. Or, you could be a very gracious host and provide white t-shirts for everyone. You make the call. Remember, the clothing can be part of the art.

Another tip here is the element of surprise. This is my personal favorite. Tease your guests in your invite as to the night’s activities. But don’t tell all. This will allow them to relish the anticipation. You’ll also benefit from the ‘teasing element’ as you spend hours creating the ‘fear of god’ factor in your friend’s minds. Okay, that was a little evil.

Step 3

Now it’s time to head on down to the art store. Go nuts. Acrylic works best. Think florescent, bright. Choose colors that look good under normal light as well as black light. Get a variety of brushes and painting implements. Sponges work well for texture. Think big too. You have a lot of paper to paint. If you have the cash, be creative and buy a few cheap bongs that you can paint with your friends.

Step 4

The big night!

The night has come. Before your guests arrive, prepare the paint room. You’ll need to tape up sheets of the white paper. Where? Everywhere you stoner! The walls and the floor are the most important areas to cover. Double-check the room to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Step 5

Prepare the refreshments.

Now you need to figure out where the stereo and bar area should be. You could just prepare a cooler with a variety of drink options. More serious bar connoisseurs might want to create a small bar with glasses, ice, and all the necessary mixers and liquors. If you go this route though, don’t be cheap. Bring on the shots. I’ll take a chilled Jägermeister!

Step 6

Set up the lighting.

Find a good spot to place the black light. Paint, brushes and sponges should be placed in all areas of the room for ready access to all participants.

Step 7

Get dressed you fool!

Just in case you’re stoned right now… I’ll include this important direction: Put your pants on. Remember… wear white!

Step 8

Greet and prepare your guests.

When your guests arrive, make sure they’re properly prepared for the evening’s activities. Smoke a fatty… have a drink… locate all the lighters… whatever feels right.

Step 9

Introduce The Glow-Art Room.

If you’ve taken my suggestion on the surprise element, now is the time to describe the idea to your friends. I’d do this once they’re in the room.

Make a group decision on what type of music is preferred. Usually, your baked guests won’t want to make any major decisions at this point in the evening. Neither will you. This shows us how important pre-party planning is. So… prior to your guest’s arrival, select some music options to present to them. This will shorten the decision-making process and allow your party to reach the next level… so to speak.

Step 10

face-glow-art-cannabis

Do it!

Ok, must I have to tell you everything? Get the stereo cranking, pour another cocktail and get paintingGo nuts.

Step 11

Drop the brush, Picasso.

When done, you and your guests will be able to marvel at the work you’ve created. Here’s a tip: let it dry before you take it off the walls.

The next day you must make a judgement call: Does this look as great now as it did while high? If so, cut apart the most elegant pieces of the work. You can then frame them as gifts for your guests. High Art!

Please send us pictures from your party. Show everyone your high art.
