What You Need To Know About Cannabis
Cannabis sativa is commonly known as marijuana or ‘dope’ among many. Marijuana has had an increasing market over the years. This means that you could begin selling cannabis to people if they will be using it for the rightful purposes considering the fact that it is very lucrative. There is also the medical marijuana that is usually given to patients by the doctors. It has therefore been legalized in several states.
Medically, Marijuana relieves extreme pain in people with chronic pain, gives appetite to people undergoing chemotherapy that constantly experience nausea and treat gastritis among others. It is very important for one to look into some specific items before they begin to grow cannabis. Legality is what one really needs to consider. It is important to recognize that some states would require you to get a doctor’s prescription for you to grow cannabis.
When starting to grow cannabis, you need to choose a space to grow. If you will go with the indoor space, make sure that the place has electrical outlets. Some of the places that you could use to grow the cannabis would be the basements and the attic. You also need to grow your plant in containers. You should make sure you use large plastic pots. For the cannabis plant to grow properly, then it should be exposed to sufficient light. This can be achieved by use of fluorescent lights, high pressure sodium lights or halide lights. Aside from just ensuring that the light is sufficient, you should also look into other important factors such as carbon dioxide, humidity, temperature and water.
Eventually, you should know that the harvesting process of cannabis is not difficult. You should start to harvest it when the plant starts to flower. This means that you will have to give the plant time until the flowering period is almost over. Cut down the cannabis plant then remove the lower big leaves when the flowering period ends. After that, place the plants in very large boxes. The right time to use the cannabis will be when it is very dry. To fasten the drying process, you need to stir them around daily. The moment the plant is dry, you would be free enough to sell it to the right market of your choice or simply use it by yourself as long as you do not resort to distributing it illegally.
