The Importance Of Medical Marijuana Genetic Library

Growing a plant from a single seed is every time the magic and the magnificent moment. Seeds are the basis of the genetic storage, or genetic bank whatever you call it. And every seed is a unique piece of Universe, like every of us – an individual carrying individual properties. And every seed shall grow individually and shall be giving individual reactions on what kind of next agricultural knowledge you are going to apply to it.

Here lies the problem with the seeds – you actually never know what is best for your ongoing plant: PH-level? Type of fertilisers? You actually never know the plant and maybe too short of time to understand each of them that deeply.

Imagine twenty pets or one hundred pets and every is a unique character, sometimes a naughty type of character, sometimes too weak, sometimes too strong. How to handle? How to keep things more-o-less predictable?

Genetics Is A Simple Solution

How to solve this “problem”, and it is a problem. The answer is Genetics and the Cloning like those perfect warriors in the Star Wars series. All are perfect and no one unique. This is what happens when you grow your medical cannabis plant not from every unique seed but cloning a baby-plant from mother-plant every time, again and again. Same perfect level of Marijuana you shall get.

Marijuana Genetic Library is Essential

For a professional cannabis grower (and every of us is a professional as soon as medical agriculture and pot farming becomes your best hobby, consumes your time and gives you tons of discoveries) it is essential to have a genetic library, or genetic bank, whatever name you like for it. This shall solve the other essential problems like which temperature fits the best, what kind of light and soil and fertilisers shall affect the best number of trichomes – now having cloning you have plenty of time to discover the best recipes to grow that mentioned “perfect warrior”.

How To Clone Marijuana Plant

This is what agricultural professionals do through, maybe, thousand years already with all kind of plants of different purposes: Select the “donor plant”, sometimes they call it “mother plant”, and cut a healthy-looking branch from it. Basically, the one you’ve liked. Simple as that!

Here we go the Hints:

1) Use a very clean instrument. It is also a surgery for the cannabis plant, you damage it, it is distressed, and then it reacts to the damage. No need to explain why the instrument must be clean, or even extremely clean for the surgery.

2) Pretty same reason (because it is a surgery for the cannabis plant) for having this already clean cutting tool that you use, scissors or a blade, sharpest possible to provide less damage.

3) The direction of a cut must go at an angle, not 90 degrees, but a diagonal angle, roughly 45 degrees. Make the cut close to the main stem.

4) Choose the branch with few nodes. Say 3 to 5 nodes. However this is also a creative work, by means — perform your own experiments. Just remember keeping notes of what you do 😉 After all you need a “genetic library” to succeed with your genetic experiments over cannabis, but be patient and attentive, it’s not one or two attempts, and it’s not one or two cuts:

5) Make the full operation while the vegetative stage of the mother plant (pre-flowering). It may also work while flowering, but then it is a greater distress for the clone plant. After the cut the new clone will apply for vegetative stage, but if it was flowering a-minute-ago then the whole situation form a greater distress for the plant.

6) The following rooting may take one-two weeks. Put the clone plant to a moisture environment with the lower end of it in water, until the roots start appearing, then send it into a pot. One-two inches of a new root is already fine, but then:

Make your own experiments

Every plant is a unique piece of Universe, while the clones are not! Try different ways for the clones from same mother or different mothers, make notes of what you do, and you’ll finally discover the best algorithm of your own for your own “perfect warrior”.

7) To improve the rooting some growers cut half of leaves of the clone, so that having smaller leaves it’ll give more efforts to the roots and the last may become stronger.

8) Notes are essential, right because it is a sort of a scientific hobby. Mark the pots with clones, put the labels, note all steps of what you are doing to them, where you cut from, when you cut, how long were the roots, etc. etc. This all shall allow you to come back to what was happening, what was good and what was not.

It is a creative process — don’t be shy with your own experiments.

Good luck, Growers!

Uruguay To Accelerate Its Inclusion Into Cannabis Industry

It is no longer the delirium of a good-natured president, the romantic and obsolete opinions against the regulation of the cannabis industry in Uruguay have been left behind. The regularisation of cannabis is an irreversible and global fact.

In Uruguay,

The avant-garde regularization occurred for many reasons. At first from the bottom: due to the work of different social movements. Then some politicians put the cause on their shoulders and meanwhile, they campaigned. And finally, this political change happened because, in addition, we are facing an unbeatable economic opportunity.

It is time to take advantage of it

Behind every measure he applies, President Tabaré Vázquez always seeks symbolic value. He knows that symbols are the true constructors of a society. With cannabis it was no different. His medical doubts, or his suspicion for those who, from ignorance, compare smoking with cannabis consumption, were left behind. He had the wisdom to announce the beginning of cannabis sales in uruguayan pharmacies from Berlin. This time, through no spokesman. He did it himself as part of an European tour in search of new business opportunities for the country. The symbol can not be more clear. Earlier this year, Canada exported cannabis flowers to Germany.

The cannabis industry represents a huge opportunity for Uruguay, like no other country. It has the necessary political stability, has acquired the adequate financial transparency, it is located at a strategic regional position (the more open markets are those of the Conosur, Brazil, Argentina, Chile), it transmits the security that the world requires for this kind of market, it has regularized the Industry before its neighbors. And there is more. The cannabis industry is based on agronomic resources, has niche market characteristics, approachable from a small territory, and is a product that demands added value.

Nicholas Negroponte recently visited Uruguay. He is the creator of One Computer Per Child (OLPC), founded the Media Lab of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, better known as MIT, creator of Wired magazine and one of the most outstanding computer scientists in the world. When the press asked what disruptive technologies, he thought, would have the most impact on our lives in the next 20 or 30 years, Negroponte was blunt:

That’s easy! Biotechnology, no doubt

The cannabis industry could be an excellent specialization

The government has given signals. Not only the announcement from Germany, but also has allocated public funds to industry: the best example was the acquisition of PIEP funds, given by the Ministry of Industry Energy and Mining, by CannaPur.

Of course, the political cost is still stalking. There is a whole mass of deputies and senators waiting for the first stumble to get their electoral revenue. Those many years of prohibitionist propaganda have had their effect. That’s why society needs to get involved in this country project. Scientific evidence of the benefits of using cannabis is being accumulated day by day.

It requires the active participation of agronomists, doctors, chemists, engineers, architects, lawyers, accountants, electricians, craftsmen, gardeners, bricklayers. As in December of 2013, when cannabis was regulated in Uruguay, it is time for civil society to be the support and engine of change and embrace this opportunity.

Having regularized the cannabis industry before its neighbors allowed the country to gain a huge comparative advantage. However, the watch does not stop. Colombia and Mexico have made steady progress in recent months. There is a difference from political to administrative facts, but chips are moving.

It is time for Uruguay to capitalize on that advantage.
