The Evolution of Marijuana in the 21st Century

The Evolution of Marijuana in the 21st Century

Marijuana the turn-around

Some of us may remember a time not too long ago, when marijuana was something that was extremely frowned upon. From incarceration to severe punishment, fines or penalties and in parts of the world even facing death; being the consequence of getting caught with it.

Luckily today things seem to be quite different from weed legalization to general overall acceptance of it, things are looking up for “Mary”.

Genetics

The marijuana that is available to us today, whether through medicinal dispensaries or any other means; isn’t what was being passed around during the “hippie” days.

As a matter of fact, the weed that floats around now-a-days has been genetically modified by means of either cloning and hybridization.

From various strains of kush to earthy or floral sativas there seems to be a whole lot more variety available to us, then years passed.

Generally speaking most strains available today whether be it indica or sativa all are hybrids. There are really slim-to-none chances of finding a 100% pure indica or 100% pure sativa. Most are combinations of the two,  and usually 10-30% one over the other. (Congolese however is a one-of-a-kind marijuana that can be found in 100% pure sativa; though searching for it may prove to be quite difficult, perhaps even futile)

 

Looking Ahead

Looking ahead into the future,  it seems like more and more people will enjoy the medicinal benefits of marijuana. Scientists may possibly find cures or perhaps even more benefits of the plant (as the genetic research has only just reached the tip of the iceberg). Old ways of thinking about marijuana are changing and the world is becoming more and more amazed at the wonders behind this God-sent plant -as science sheds new light on it with each passing day.

Keep your Head up! If things keep unfolding as they do soon medicinal marijuana will be available to all those truly need it and readily accessible –at lower costs then EVER before!

 

 

Indica Vs Sativa

Indica Vs Sativa The Difference Between the Two Cannabis Plants

We sometimes receive calls that will ask about what type of weed should they order?  Customers want to know what the pros and cons are with marijuana Indica Vs Sativa. The answer would be depending of what kind of effect you want to experience when you smoke weed. We usually have a variety of Sativas and Indicas available on our web site. So you will ask, what is Sativa and Indica?

Today’s article will let us distinguish the difference between an indica and sativa type of weed.

To start, indica and sativa are the two major types of cannabis plants. When the two types are mixed, a “hybrid” type is formed and each types has different effects on body and mind.

LOOK and TASTE

Indica typically grow shot and wide while Sativa grow tall and thin. Indica plants are better grown indoor because they grow short and Sativa are better grown outdoor because it can get as high as 25 ft. in height. Indica’s flowering time is shorter, about 8-12 weeks while sativa’s will take about 10-16 weeks to grow.

indica vs sativa

Indicas have fat fan leaves, where each leaf segment nearly touches each other or even overlaps a little. Sativa leaves look more like thin little fingers.

In terms of taste, Indicas are sweet and fruity while sativas are earthy and piny.

Buds:

The dried buds are are a little bit more difficult to differentiate because they might look like hybrids but once you know the basic features of each type, in a way, you can make an educated guess as to whether or not your strain is indica or sativa dominant.

Sativa’s buds are usually long, less dense, wispy bud or fluffy, often with red or orange coloring and have a sweeter or lighter aroma.

Indica’s buds are short, heavy, compact and dense, often purple coloring and have thick pungent aroma.

 

GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN

Most indica strains originated from the Hindu Kush region of the Middle East like Turkey, Morocco and Afghanistan while most sativa strains originated from those countries near the equator like Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

It makes sense when you want to distinguish each strain when it comes to the name of the weed. Indicas usually have Kush at the end while sativas have Haze.

 

EFFECTS

Haze Marijuana Strains Vary In Character

If you are familiar with weed, then chances are that you have heard of Haze marijuana strains at some point in time. It is highly sought after for its uplifting, euphoric, cerebral, and even psychedelic mental experience with almost no ceiling to the buzz while allowing the user to remain physically active. It has been used a staple in a number of hybrids. The Haze family line is one of the most THC-potent strains that cannabis has to offer.

Haze refers to a Cannabis sativa-dominant strain known for its psychedelic effects, sometimes referred to colloquially as “ampheta-weed” for their uplifting qualities. Despite the uplifting powerful effects for which the Haze strain is known, it can be hard to come by. This is largely due to the the amount of time required for a Haze plant to be ready for harvest.

Haze Marijuana Growing Cycle

It often takes as as long as 14 weeks of flowering before a batch of haze marijuana strains can be sent to the trimmers. The resulting flowers can be well-worth the wait, however, which is why Haze varieties are still popular in the European cannabis market. Because of its long flowering times (often double that of an indica based strain) and tall stature, haze is rarely seen in its pure form but instead is a popular choice for breeders and is the parent to many prized subset strains.

Very popular in the 70’s, it nearly became extinct in recent years as growers switched to easier varieties. Many seed banks still offer what is supposedly the Original haze but many have been “Tainted” with Indica genetics, or are just a similar strain, aptly named. Dutch hazes especially are often crossed with Indicas, due to the often shorter growing seasons.

Haze Marijuana Genetics

The genetics of the Haze sativa first took root in Santa Cruz, California during the 1960s where long growing seasons accommodated her lengthy flowering cycle. Despite the buzz, Haze seeds remained scarce for years until the late 1970s.

Haze Marijuana StrainsWhen famed breeder Sam Skunkman started creating and refining his own batches. With a flowering time from 12 to as much as 16 weeks, the Original Haze earned a reputation as a finicky, difficult plant to grow.

Many preferred planting Skunk and Northern Lights seeds instead. Since then, Haze has been the proud parent of countless hybrids around the world passing on it’s genetics from Mexico, Colombia, Thailand and India. Because most Haze strains have a long flowering period, being mainly cultivated in inter-tropical climates or indoor grow rooms.

Variety Of Haze Strains

It should be noted that there are a variety of Haze strains, typically referred to by the region from with it originally stems from. Nonetheless, one the most famous of these is often referred to as “Super Silver Haze.

The buds, as with most pure sativas, are usually small, spaced out, skinny, and long. The original Haze is well known, along with many other sativas to produced very fluffy buds. Haze is also famous for its unique smell, taste, and strong “Psychedelic” effect.

Old School Haze

Very popular haze marijuana strains in the 70’s, it nearly became extinct in recent years as growers switched to easier varieties.
