Big Cannabis Updates

Bloom tent for Operation: Black Diesel

Hey gang, just a note to share that I have done some major updates to The Cannabis Files, adding what I hope is the completing bit of documentation for my grow system. I added sections explaining the rest of the equipment in the system in great detail, and then another one to explain how and why it all works, more about the life cycle of cannabis, tips for the disabled and even a new section on making your own hashish.

Then in Operation: Black Diesel a major step forward happened, I got the parts I needed to complete the trellis planter (seen above and yes I know about the rail) so basically that whole operation got converted to soilmix and the trellis planter needed for the project. Not to mention a totally shut-down bloom tent got refurbed back to operational status again. So now I have two Black Diesels in the trellis planter, getting acclimated to the new environment and the spare BD got put in an overflow tub for Bloom. Lots of information, pics and ideas....

Soon I mean to move the remaining plants in veg (5 Gorilla Glue #4s and a single Sunset Sherbet) to the outside to finish this fall. Thats a bigger thing than you think: I live in the desert and I don't care who tells you what, growing cannabis in the desert is a cast-iron bitch. I can grow stuff at the edges of the summer, like spring and fall but never have gotten plants to survive in the summer here. 100-120 degrees every day for months on end, almost zero rain. So over the past few years I have been doing experiments to figure out how plants might survive and I think I am on to something and once I am sure, I will share it here. Growing pot with disabilities is all about overcoming I am trying to overcome this one. That will be documented more fairly soon. Since the Black Diesel stuff is due to die down soon, the outside grow will take priority so expect something then....

Dementia Cannabis Update

Update: 22 July
Project started, grow page and journal is here:

Operation: Constant Clarity

This is one of the most difficult posts I have had to write, mostly because I "had" to. Allow me to explain and I promise by the end you will not only understand the "difficulty" and the "had to" bit but also I hope you come away with a few new assumptions or conclusions, you pick and if all that passes you by, perhaps you will find illumination as this is some serious "dementia from the inside out" kinda shit.

The 18:1 Theory
Before I tell you what happened, please recall I have expressed a theory or hypothesis on the effects of a cannabis extract/concentrate that tests out to have a CBD:THC ratio of 18-1 on the demented mind. By demented I mean any brain with not just dementia but anything that alters so-called normal operation. I don't mean anything like it fixes everything, rather there are things that are fixed by this like PTSD and ADD that you …

Be Who You Actually Are

Many moons ago I was starting my day like many of us enjoying the gifts of dementia by spending most of it screwing up each and every thing I attempted to do, large or small and usually in ways both spectacular as well as costly.  On the verge of tears I spent about an hour medicating with my very best botanicals when I had the BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious, engineer-speak): I am still attempting to be something that I am not only NOT but barring acts of a supreme deity, never will be again. Its just that damned simple.

* What makes a persons personality unique is the precise set of influences, patterns of thinking, lifetime experiences or memories amongst many other things. These are all stored and/or controlled by the brain.

* The root cause of dementia is damage to select portions of the brain.

* For better or worse, the simple truth is that this will result in a different person. Not better or lesser, simply different, in the same way that any two coworkers might be very dif…

Holy Crap Batman! A hero with dementia!

Braven 2018
Hey kids, I ran across something you just HAVE to watch. I mean you as in readers of these words. Looking for entertainment last night I was scrounging some of the dodgier parts of the Internet for something not involving a cape or "found footage" to watch. Long story short I ran across something from this year (2018) called Braven, starring Jason Mamoa (Aquaman/Ronin on Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen Lang (the major hard-ass in Avatar).  Plot reads like a B-roll actioner, drug dealers drop in on county folk and try to take them on their own turf. I agree, major tired plotline BUT......
Here is the kicker: The country folks (Mamoa/Lang) are in the cabin in the woods kinda thing because Lang (plays Mamoas dad) has alzheimers (he blames it on some Vietnam injury but...) and got into a fight at a local bar, thinking some girl was his dead wife out on the town. 
Of course Jason beats everyones ass in proper manner as it should be but thats why these two are in the c…
