A team of Canadian scientists believes it has found strong strains of cannabis that could help prevent or treat coronavirus infections, according to interviews and a study.
Amid the chaos of 2020, which has included a stock market crash, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, and even some hoopla about the arrival of murder hornets, there’s still the realization that this is an election year.
You might think you know all about cannabis, how it works, how you grow it, and how to consume it.
Sex is already a complicated matter in and of itself. When we throw cannabis into the mix, things can get even trickier.
Across the UK an increasing number of farmers, smallholders and business people are eyeing the expanding global hemp industry and sensing the time may be right for investing in a crop that is relatively easy to grow, environmentally friendly and offers infinite end-use opportunities.
It’s California and it’s the late 1960’s. The hippie movement is coming to an end, but the vibes of the counterculture re-main strong. People must go on with their lives, but they don’t want to just give in like the rest of society.
Creating your own unique cross of cannabis can be a highly rewarding challenge. Once you have dailed in the genetic and know the plant intimately, mastering your own strain is one of the best things about growing

Potassium is needed for controlling both water uptake and the process allowing plants to harness energy from the sun (photosynthesis). Potassium promotes flowering, fruiting and general hardiness. Shortages are more likely on light, sandy or chalky soils where potassium is easily washed away. Clay soils, by contrast, hold potassium within their structure.
Although often considered a weed, cannabis has many needs that growers must accommodate. Watering, fertilisation, light levels, carbon dioxide, and temperature, amongst many other factors, all have an impact on crop performance.
