    one small genetic factor, and we would have never had weed......wonder what the world would have been like with no weed.......not good....
    i'm concerned about genetically engineered cannabis....they have barely scratched the surface of possible research and they're already talking about altering the genome....how about figuring out what you have in your hand before you start playing god with it?

    plant growth regulators are the first step, you got guys using them and braggin about it, cause it takes good pics, lol.

    There are two types of known PGR’s, naturally derived and chemically derived. Chemically derived hormones aim to either interfere with synthesis and hormone breakdown or mimic pre-existing hormones. This interference often encourages denser growth and higher yields. Many growers claim that PGR’s help produce cannabis that grows “healthier” and has a higher resistance to disease. However, these unnatural attributes come with a heavy cost.

    Chemically-derived PGRs are known to cause cancer, infertility, poison the liver and are classified as environmental pollutants. In the late 1980’s the Environmental Protection Agency banned the use of several PGRs because it was estimated that the exposure to these PGR’s could result in a cancer risk 240 times greater than considered acceptable by E.P.A. It is important to note that these PGRs were made illegal in the food industry, yet the cannabis industry had flown under the radar when it comes to illegal use of PGR’s.

    A common misconception is that all PGRs are negative, however that is not true. There are natural PGR's everywhere in the surrounding environment such as Kelp, Chitosan, and Tricontanol. There are natural solutions to chemical PGRs.

    However, many popular fertilizer companies utilize the chemically derived PGR’s in their products, and growers are unaware of the dangers they pose to the consumer population. So, how do you protect yourself in the Colorado cannabis market? Here are a few tips on how to decipher your label and what really goes into your smoke.

    [​IMG]
    Pictured above is a Colorado recreational ingredients list, found on the back of all Colorado recreational marijuana products. This specific product indicates the use of illegal pesticides, as a result this company was penalized by the Marijuana Enforcement Department. This ingredient list is where you may find the use of the following chemically derived PGR’s: Chlormequat chloride, Daminozide, Paclobutrazol, and Uniconazole.
    Ask your budtender if their product is grown with harmful PGR’s. For more information pertaining to harmful PGR’s go to www.fda.gov . Know what you smoke and take the time to educate yourself on the possible dangers PGRs. It is worth your time, so you can enjoy your mountain high to the fullest!

    There should be tons of research/new info coming our way with legalization in Canada.

    myclobutanil is supposed to be banned in Colorado.
    abamectin is allowed, but is considered highly toxic.
    (i)midaclorprid is safe dermally, but not if inhaled
    spiromessifin is safe for vegetables, but no research on smoking it
    abamectin is the same, safe for food, no research on smoking.....
    why do these big professionals need all this shit? i get by with a bottle of spinosad and a bottle of pyrethrins, and don't use either in flower......keep your shit clean, treat any plants you have outside before you bring them in....these are supposed to be pros, a pair of white overalls when you go in the greenhouse would be too much trouble? leave your street clothes in a locker room, along with the thrips, mites, and flies that you've been in contact with on your way to work

    i both hope and fear so.....information is neutral, neither good or evil....people, on the other hand, are depressingly predictable. they look for ways to make more money......they may start out with noble goals, but they all end up at the same place....practical application requires turning a thing into a product, products are sold for profit, and profit makes people turn into thoughtless, greedy, shameless pieces of shit......i don't want genetically engineered weed. ever. period. i don't want anyone to have control of it. ever. period.
    the government gets involved, they start spraying shit, and all weed is now hemp.......tell me that couldn't happen......tell me trump wouldn't start the program tomorrow if he could......

    I agree. I am 100% against the greed that the smell of a new gold rush brings from big corps.

    Our bodies would not be what they are without viral evolutionary forces. With advances in genome sequencing and computational tools to analyze genomic information, researchers are able to estimate that about 8 percent of the human genome is made of sequences that originated as invasive retroviruses. To put that number in perspective, genes4 make up about 1 percent to 1.5 percent of your genome.

    I found a baby blue tail skink in the house by the patio door. Maybe an inch long. It probably came in from the deck when the screen was open.

    LOL, I have had a few myself. Squirrel and mice (cats love to play with them). Thankfully the screen was closed when the rabbit and skunk came by. That skunk walked right by me in the front. I froze and a few minutes later he snuck back and almost walked on my fucking foot. I do a really good statue. o_O

    cannabis comes from a planet that had longer than 12 hr dark periods all the time.

    the africans said the aliens brought it from the dog star, thus the canine( canna ) part of the name.

    thats some real shit, what other plant on this planet comes close to how the plant grows, flowers, expands your mind, interacts with treating other human problems.

    cannabis is a gift from the gods to help the alien part of us, because come on, we are all half ape half alien
