  1. Thanks for the read @Sacred Plant Warrior great stuff! /peAce
  2. This made sense to me, I have never tried the LED route before and it would be interesting to hear you guys thoughts on these principles...
  3. UNDERSTANDING MICROMOLES Most growers are aware of the term micromoles (µmol) and even have a number in mind of how many micromoles they want to grow. This number is usually between 850-1000 for indoor crops. Let’s take a minute to discuss where this number comes from. First, what is a micromole? A micromole is simply one millionth of a mole (micro). A micromole measurement of the PAR for your crop is based on the amount of photons being delivered per square meter per second. It is with this measurement of PPF (Photosynthetic Photon Flux) that we can then calculate total moles delivered per day. It is actually this number – total moles – that is important for your crop to produce. Source: https://pllight.com/demystifying-light-levels-for-cannabis-grows/

  7. COLUMBIA, SC - Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), when caused by a bacterial toxin known as Staphylococcal enterotoxin, can be completely prevented by treatment with Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. This exciting finding, recently published in the highly cited British Journal of Pharmacology also suggests a possible treatment for ARDS caused by COVID-19. This new paper is based on research studies from the laboratories of Dr. Mitzi Nagarkatti and Dr. Prakash Nagarkatti at the University of South Carolina (UofSC) School of Medicine, Department of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology. The Nagarkattis published "Protective Effects of Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol Against Enterotoxin-induced Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome is Mediated by Modulation of Microbiota," with co-authors Amira Mohammed, Hasan Alghetaa and Juhua Zhou, who also work in their UofSC School of Medicine laboratories, and Saurabh Chatterjee from the UofSC Arnold School of Public Health. Drs. Mitzi and Prakash Nagarkatti have for years studied how plant-derived compounds can be used to prevent and reduce inflammation throughout the body. The incidence of ARDS in the United States is 78.9 per 100,000 persons/year and the mortality rate is 38.5 percent. When inhaled, Staphylococcal enterotoxin can cause ARDS by activating immune cells to produce massive amounts of cytokines leading to "cytokine storm," which can cause the lungs and other organs to fail, often resulting in death. This immune process is similar to that seen in patients with severe COVID-19 who are admitted to the hospital and develop ARDS accompanied by cytokine storm, which leads to respiratory and multi-organ failure. These studies therefore raise the exciting possibility of using cannabinoids to treat ARDS seen in COVID-19 patients. These studies also showed that Staphylococcal enterotoxin alters the microbiome in the lungs leading to the emergence of pathogenic microbiota. But THC helps this symptom too, by promoting beneficial bacteria that suppress inflammation thereby preventing the damage to the lungs. "Acute respiratory distress syndrome is triggered by a variety of etiologic agents. Currently, there are no FDA-approved drugs to treat ARDS because of which the mortality rate is close to 40 percent. Our studies suggest that THC is highly effective to treat ARDS and thus, clinical trials are critical to investigate if this works," said Mitzi Nagarkatti. "Cytokine storm is a huge clinical issue which leads to multiorgan failure and often death. It is also seen in COVID-19 patients, and there are no effective treatment modalities against this syndrome. We have been working on cannabinoids for over 20 years and found that cannabinoids such as THC are highly anti-inflammatory. Thus, our studies raise the exciting suggestion to test THC against ARDS seen in COVID-19 patients," said Prakash Nagarkatti.

  8. This got me intrigued, now it is only a matter of time before we get a table of contents...

    Id love to grow these ladies side by side in my next venture, I missed the good old freebies and boudica was out of stock when I finally pulled the trigger... if they are still in stock when next round starts I'll keep a diary... Great to see old genetics reborned!
  10. Heard this in the background as I was chillin' in my bed, made me smile... nonsensory experience and ethics..mp3
  11. HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WHISHING YOU ALL A HEALTHY, HAPPY AND SLEEPY 2021!
  12. I would not worry, these are experiments are conducted on mice, they lack the foremost ability necessary to indicate syptomatic relief, they cannot convey subjective experience... These kinds of research observations are useless for human models as their "mice measurements" can't be correlated with our moment to moment awareness of our mental and psychological wellbeing when we consume cannabis. Until actual research with recreational grade cannabis is conducted in appropriate settings and sample groups, we're pretty much stuck listening to researchers using any chance to accuse cannabis of being detrimental without proof....
  13. Yeah, it's interesting times for sure. Hopefully the next few years will give us more useful information.
  14. From the states to europe its pretty much spot on 21 calendar days from here. (Southern Europe) thats with registered air mail
