How to Grow Taller Crop Indoor Plants
Cannabis seed is an evergreen perennial herb native to tropical eastern Asia but today of cosmopolitan global distribution due largely to widespread cultivation. It was historically used as an essential source of food, fuel, fiber, media and religion, used as an inducement to moods, sexual stimulation and to enhance healing. In addition, some of its other well-known properties are pain-relieving, sedative, antiseptic, demulcent, astringent and antibacterial.
But what exactly is the best type of cannabis to be used for smoking? While there has been much debate among medical marijuana users, there is no consensus. While many advocates consider indica the superior strain because of it’s more profound sedative effects and sedative effect, others (most notably smokers) consider sativa the superior strain because of better weight management and its ability to induce a deeper sleep. Ultimately, it is personal preference that must be the ultimate determinant.
Sativa or simply Jamaican Blueberry is the most common type of cannabis plant grown in the many homes across Jamaica. It is also the most expensive. The plant is very similar to indica and is the most popular of all strains. But what sets it apart from the rest of the marijuana crop is that its flowering period is twice that of indica and it has a longer shelf life. This means that home growers will often harvest a plant while it is still in the flowering stage, resulting in an extended window of leisurely and cost-effective harvests.
Like indica, sativa strains are known for having longer flowering periods and a more elegant nature when it comes to stalks and leaves. In addition, it also has a longer lifespan when compared to other strains. A plant in its flowering stage can be harvested without fear of losing much of its medicinal value. On the downside, plants flowering later in the life cycle tend to lose more nutrients compared to those that began flowering early in the life cycle.
One of the most well known of the new cannabis strains is THC. THC is actually known by many names; hocushocks weed, psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol, God’s herb, etc. The scientific name of the substance is tetrahydrocannabinol, which is just short for THCA, short for tetrahydrocannabinols. As previously mentioned, this compound has a profound effect on brain function; producing a “high” or “high sensation,” which is the main defining characteristic of cannabis. The effects of THC are believed to be caused by the presence of three distinct components: the fatty acids, which are present in the mother plant, as well as the two essential chemicals that make up THC; and the neuromuscular component, which is present only in the brain, but is believed to affect memory and cognitive abilities.
Other new varieties include CBD, or Cannabidiol, which has less of an effect on the brain than THC. The Cannabinol family contains three important compounds, which have been studied intensively as potential anti-psychotic, anti-anxiety drugs and even antidepressant substances. Several studies have shown that CBD is the most potent of all the cannabinoids, at least when administered by mouth. Interestingly, although CBD is derived from plants, it is produced in the body via the method of dehydration, as well. It is believed that the process of dehydration uses an enzyme called Enkephalins to convert THC into its inactive form. However, Enkephalins are only produced in very small quantities and cannot be relied upon for oral consumption.
Other cannabis cultivars grown for the purposes of growing taller are hybrid varieties, such as Afghani and indica cannabis strains; as well as non-hybrid types, like Hawaiian and Brazilian cherry cultivars. Hybrid plants are generally crossbred between two or more parent strains, resulting in altered traits that make them more desirable. While many popular “crash” strains have become highly popular strains in the last decade, many more have remained relatively unchanged due to their ability to produce highly reliable, high-quality harvests.
Indoor growers are able to enjoy the benefits of using the techniques used by outdoor gardeners for indoor growing, for example, by separating the plants based on size and height. However, as there are no controlled temperature levels or lighting requirements, the final results may not match what you originally had in mind. In order to enjoy the full effects of Indoor gardening, it is necessary to know how to cultivate the desired type of crops and develop them correctly. Once you have mastered this process, you will find that growing indica and sativa plants will no longer feel like a chore, but instead be a tranquil and relaxing experience.
