    They certainly both look like healthy plants. Keep doing whatever it is your doing. See how it works out for you. xxxx2

    Years of Smoking Weed May Leave You Grasping for Words

    Talk about a buzzkill. When researchers looked at the marijuana habits of a group of people ages 18 to 30, and then again 25 years later, one finding rose above the fog: For every five years of lighting up, your ability to recall common words slides.

    At the beginning of the study, which was published in JAMA Internal Medicine, 84 percent of the group reported using marijuana, while less than 12 percent reported still smoking it 25 years later.

    During the follow-up, participants were given standard cognitive tests that measured three things: processing speed (for example, solving simple math problems), verbal memory (word recall), and higher-level skills that show how well different parts of the brain are working together.

    The longer people used marijuana, the worse they did on all three fronts. However, after accounting for other factors that could affect brain performance, such as education level, only the association between long-term marijuana use and verbal memory persisted. Specifically, for every five years that someone uses marijuana, they recall one less word from a list of 15.

    The study authors admit they were a bit surprised to find such a consistent association, and say they plan to invite participants back for a 30-year visit, at which time they’ll undergo cognitive testing.

    They forgot to mention that that also happens naturally with ageing.

    No they didn't, I assume they accounted for that as well judging by this statement below...

    You shouldn't have to assume anything. If they are going to make a claim like that they should list each surveys they did.

    It's all in the published study which I only posted an article highlighting the study and my assumption comes from the article's posting...Here's the full study if you wish to read it...

    Eugene Stoner was an interesting sort that you might say has had a global impact but not in a buzzy friendly way unfortunately

    Perfect word combination. I grew up in Eugene, Oregon, and there were more stoners per capita there than just about anywhere else on the planet.

    Starting of the 10th week in flower flushed soil to 430 ppm last night. Our tap water is 175ppm. It took 5 g of distilled water to get it there. And the ph is still 6.5. Nothing left to do but check 20210703_204917.jpg trichomes

    Any day now. This last week i have raised the light and lowered the intensity to 600 u/mols. been keeping the day temp at 77 - 80f and night temp at 69- 71F at 45-50% humidity. the buds are hard, and 50 - 60 % stigma`s are red, and most the trichomes are now milky. I think its time, but its only 50 days into flower, the place were the seeds came from says 60-65 days. so i will try to hold out.Ugh unless i see some amber,

    The lights just came on , and i`m definitively waiting at least 10 more days, the tips of the buds have new growth with new white hairs all over, and getting fat with even more trichomes. I went to Hobby Lobby and got me some good scissors for trimming and a 5x magnifying lens, it wooks good but gonna have to get me a jeweler loupe.
