A Few Good Reasons to Grow Your Own MMJ

 
While there are endless perks to having access to a local dispensary, many people around the world don’t have that convenient option when it comes to obtaining cannabis. Whether you’re looking to save some money or interested in taking your healing into your own hands, these five reasons will help you understand why it pays to grow a personal crop of green.

Cost

A typical plant will net about an ounce after curing. A standard 1000-watt metal halide lamp will easily bring six plants to maturity in eight to 10 weeks. Smoking 6 ounces in two months is a good pace that will keep even the most hardcore stoner happy. Compared to how much those 6 ounces would cost if they were purchased on the street — the difference in price is astounding.

Strains & Flavors

While dispensaries or personal friends may only have access to a few dozen strains, there are hundreds of different strains of marijuana to choose from with their own attributes and flavors. One of the hardest decisions a grower has to decide upon is which with one strain per plant in a crop of many plants.

Community

Most growers keep the fact that they grow under tight-lipped security for understandable reasons, but once a crop is harvested and cured, knowing this new skill will bring other growers out of the woodwork. A new grower to talk shop with is always welcome and you’ll soon find that having other cultivators to swap tips with will be helpful.

Sharing with Friends

As the saying goes: birds of a feather flock together. Sharing even a small amount of the costly green with friends will be much appreciated and likely earn you a superlative title amongst your cronies. Most people know how much they smoke on any given day. If there are more buds than what will be consumed by harvest time of the next crop, think of sharing with friends.

Pride

As soon as a successful crop is harvested and cured, chances are there’ll be a pretty good feeling about the new crop and for good reason. Taking on a two month project is a real investment in time and effort. The rewards, though, are worth it. Once you master the skill of growing premium, high quality cannabis, you’ll be able to show off your hard work and possibly even make some money off of it by selling it to dispensaries.

Medicinal Marijuana and Anxiety


Anxiety has become an epidemic throughout the world as the global financial crisis, rising food prices and stagnant wages all threaten people's livelihood. There are certainly many other causes of anxiety that can be traced to personal experiences and lifestyle. Part of the solution is that individuals need to free themselves of toxic environments and get closer to nature. Cannabis that contains certain medicinal compounds satisfies this solution and provides benefits beyond the placebo effect. 

The reason cannabis helps diminish anxiety is that its active ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol THC, unlocks the pleasure centers of the brain. Scientific proof that medical marijuana treats anxiety began in the early sixties with research from Israeli chemistry professor Raphael Mechoulam, who discovered THC in 1964. Then in 1992 Czech chemist Lumir Ondrej Hanus discovered anandamide in the brain in 1992. These two important findings led to the revelation that the brain houses CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, which are responsible for relieving anxiety. In other words, the brain already has built-in pleasure receptors and THC activates them. 

It's important to remember, however, that each individual has his or her own unique reaction to cannabis, whether it is smoked, eaten, drank or inhaled with a vaporizer. On top of that, there are many different strains of cannabis that each have different effects on the mind. Some strains of cannabis can even increase anxiety, which is why it is important for patients to research the various cannabis strains to find the best one to treat their condition.

Hanus was one of the first bold doctors in the modern world to state that "cannabis is one of the safest drugs known." His reasoning was that cannabis users cannot overdone on the plant. The key to the fact that medical marijuana treats anxiety hinges on strains that contain both the compounds THC and cannabidiol (CBD).  While THC can sometimes provoke anxiety, CBD blocks anxiety. Most street pot does not contain CBD and only has a small percentage of THC. That's why medical marijuana containing CBD is essential to treating anxiety.
 

At its most effective, cannabis can relax a patient and make them forget their personal problems. It often creates a calm, carefree and humorous feeling within foggy layers of a euphoric dream state. The popular stereotype that cannabis makes people forgetful is accurate, which also plays into forgetting problems.

Historically, pot has been portrayed in movies such as those made by Cheech and Chong as a party drug that produces recreational scenarios. There is plenty of truth to the fact that many users find cannabis to be a fun, pleasant and entertaining experience, which alone can reduce anxiety. The combination of ingesting cannabis with entertainment such as listening to music or engaging in comedy may be the best possible way to reduce stress.
