Organic Cannabis: Why is this important?
Usually when we hear the word “organic”, we think of overpriced veggies. But what about when it comes to organic marijuana? What are some of the potential benefits? When you take a deeper look into the possible benefits of organic marijuana, you might find it somewhat of a shock that it’s not as common to find. Organic marijuana produces a richer taste and flavor because of the consistency and terpenes as opposed to most non organic marijuana. Just like most organic plants, organic marijuana has very little negative impact on the environment. Also, due to undisturbed terrain and good ol’ Mother Nature, organic cannabis contains all natural genetics which is better for your overall health.
Butane: What you need to know
Butane Hash Oil, or BHO as many call it, is a marijuana extract that is super potent concentrate. By extracting THC and other present cannabinoids using a solvent like butane or carbon dioxide, then evaporating away the butane leaves only the resin which looks like a syrupy, amber-colored, waxy substance. We recommend that you go easy with concentrates. Concentrates can be some of the most potent way to consume marijuana. We recommend that you go slow when you first start consuming.
LED Lights: A vital part of cannabis sustainability
LED lights have been around for 53 years, but they weren’t seen as a feasible indoor growing option until recently. LED lights have always created the green and red light spectrum, but they didn’t have the essential blue light emitting diodes that are important for vegetative growth. Now that there’s been successfully developed LED lights that indeed use the blue light diode to emit a white light, cultivators are finally able to solve the problem for gardening as well as general lighting needs.LED lights use 6090% less energy than HPS bulbs and are said to be three times as effective overall. LED lights have a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours while HPS lights begin to lose their effectiveness after 23,000 hours and are only expected to last 10,000 hours. LED lights are extremely versatile, with their low heat emission. LED lights can be placed close to the plant canopy because of the low heat, which gives you the ability to control light spread.
Vaporize: Learn about the benefits
How is vaping really better for you health? First and foremost, vapor is much cleaner than smoke you would inhale from a joint. Studies have established that marijuana users report regularly that breathing is easier once they switched to vaporizers. In addition, compared to ejuice or cigarettes, it’s much more cost effective and getting rid of any unknown toxins or chemicals is always a plus.
Edibles: Consumption Guide
Here in Oregon, we have what we call “Try 5”, a campaign that encourages marijuana users to just 5mg of THC when trying a marijuana infused edible for the first time or a newer cannabis user. Here at Attis, we encourage all consumers to start with just 5 milligrams of THC and once you’re ready move up from there after waiting a couple of hours for the effects to kick in. For better or worse, because of the way marijuana is metabolized, ingesting marijuana usually supplies a much stronger and longerlasting effect. As a side note, when marijuana is inhaled the effects are almost immediate and peak within 1015 minutes, while ingesting marijuana can take up to two hours to take effect and will peak for a couple of hours after that.
Concentrates: What they are and how to use
Cannabis concentrates, also known as “dabs”, come in many different forms from shatter to wax to crumble. Typically described as sticky, once fully extracted from the plant the overall consistency can range from hard shatters, gluey saps, and dry crumbles. The way that you utilize and handle each type of concentrate is different because some can to be stuck to a dab tool, while others will need to be scooped with something that’s shaped like a spoon. If you’re not already equipped with one, try to get a multiuse dab tool in order to adapt to the different situations.
