I recall reading an article about growing hydroponically with Tilapia in the reservoir... it was interesting, but I was only interested in growing cannabis at the time.

Lightbulb

I started aquaponics thinking, I'm going to try to get busted and then when they bust in I won't have any marijuana ha ha! Plus, I'm in apartment right now so I don't really get to garden outside of the spare room...

With so many receptors in the human brain, no apparent lethalithy and so many uses of hemp plants, I see no reason to demonize the entire thing. Especially for non drug use.
It just seems like an ancient companion plant to me, did very little research on that aspect, but it just seems like it's been with us for some time.

Those hypercultivated strains are a bit silly, though. It's like coca leaves, chew em all you like, but snorting yayo like a fiend? Dunno, about that.
That said, I don't smoke things and I don't really have an interest in marijuana, I get annoyed at stoners sometimes but I think in a more primitive setting it's one of the better things to do.
Same with mushrooms and the like, I don't have a problem with shamanic applications of it, but like above I'd be a bit concerned about someone who seeks out specifically bred hard stuff over a more or less naturally grown plant (cultivation of plants is ancient, after all).

Not interested in that, myself, either. Basically, if we allow coffee and coughhacko and liver-ex, we should allow coca leaves, ganja and shrooms, too, as long as it's not extreme levels.
I'm sure the shamen from back then did something else other than being drop dead high off their behinds, 24/7.

I stopped smoking tobacco and marijuana 3 months ago. I am sure that my lungs are much better now. I vape tasty cbd vape oil tincture instead of smoking. I am sure it is much healthier for my lungs and nasal tube, taste is better and effect is the same, but you can vape longer,than smoke. I was fighting with this for a very long period of time and it was pretty hard, but i've managed to do it and CBD oil helped me, knockoutcbd.com helped me!

I grow my own and I'm not afraid to say I like it just fine.



This year's ladies are Afghan, Skunk #1, White Widow, and three homebrew homegrowns from last year's grow. This year's will definitely be better.

I've only gotten contact high once, never had the urge to do it deliberately, but I'm 10000000000% for hemp, and banning or criminalizing it is a crime in itself.
The human brain and body seem to be highly compatible with the stuff, we can smoke it or eat it, our brains have very eager receptors for it, it doesn't affect us in any truly negative way, we can eat the seeds of the plant and get quite a bit of nutrition out of it, and we can make clothes out of it.

I see it as a plant that simply must be part of ourselves, co evolved.

I don't like stoner culture tho, but that's not the fault of the plant. It's probably a very recent and new thing, I simply don't see the same 'breeding ground' for contemporary hemp drug use in the 'old times' (aka way before industrialism and maybe even the middle ages) and 'modernity'.

But I still can't do anything but approve. This must be a plant that is part of us. I simply do not believe in coincidences that are THIS positive, at least not in plants. No plant wants to die, they're all technically noxious, but various creatures have simply co evolved with some to withstand their counterattacks.

Anyone heard of hempcrete? It's pretty amazing stuff, used not only in the Smithsonian for its moisture regulating properties but also growing with builders*. Concrete does not insulate plus it expands and contracts!

True for cocaine by the way.

THC binds to a receptor for a natural neuropeptide called anandamide in the same way that morphine and heroin bind to endorphin receptors. All drugs have to mimic some natural neurohormone. Otherwise they wouldn't have any effect on us.

Yeah but that's refined coca leaves, right? I share the same notion of "stoner culture" with that.
I'm all for chewing coca leaves or having coca tea or whatever, and would never want to ban coca plants etc, nor do I want to ban cocaine but that stuff certainly goes beyond my fully supported 'natural' use.
