My Purple Diamonds

My Purple Diamonds
Hey Gang, just a short one to show something fun. Last year I have some Black Diesel clones which grew/vegged into the fall and since I knew I was tearing down my grow room (the floors in the house were being replaced with hardwood or something), I had to keep the strain alive and with no better ideas, I bought a small (and short as it turned own) grow tent, enough for two adult-ish plants, pre-flower. I stuck an Autopot in the tent, rigged up a rez and transplanted the best to I had to those pots, maybe 18 inches of growth when I did it. 

Well the floors got delayed and then delayed again until finally it was JANUARY I think that they were done; the Black Diesels were vegging in the garage (in occasionally freezing temps) the whole time and for the last 40 days out there, I had to trim the top once a week or the plants would fill/block all 300w of LED light I had in there. In time, while the tops were kept below the light, the sides grew wild as shit, resulting in the situation that the lower limbs were taller than the top. So finally end of Jan gets here, I check the temps, they seemed to be heading the right way and most important, thats when I put plants out last spring to finish in the post-winter gloom.

Problem was we had freezing, ice and fucking snow. Yes, snow in Las Vegas. On my pot plants. Dammit.  But with no where else to keep them, it was sink or swim and while they do look like mutant-freak plants from all the shit they have been thru, the cold brought out some intense purple phenotypes and now I have Diesel buds like I have never seen, lime-green buds with a wreath of deep purple leaves all around. Check out this short video I made showing some detail....I wanted to share it with my few readers....


Peace
Jeff

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…
