AK48 is an Indica strain that can be described as a cousin to AK47, named of course, after Mikhail Kalashnikov’s assault rifle. The tweak in the name comes from the fact that this weed can stop growing in as little as 48 days with the right conditions. Another Amsterdam creation from the 1990s, AK48 is a hybrid of two well-known strains, Ice and Jock Horror
L.S.D. is an easy to grow strain that works in a variety of settings and produces high yields. L.S.D. comes to us from the crossing of another strain on the list, Skunk #1, and was created by Barneys Farm. It’s mold and disease resistant, and embraces its hybrid vigor while being indica-dominant.
L.S.D. is a great strain to practice your pruning skills on. Effective pruning will see your buds reach its best potential. Its height will not top the other strains on this list and that’s alright. What L.S.D. lacks in large stature is accounted for in its end results. It takes you on a ride that will appease both sativa and indica leaning consumers.
Once you have a good strain on your hands, be sure to clone it. This will help reduce the variability that comes from cultivating a seed for the first time. By refining you selections, you’ll be sure to produce the best yields possible. As always, happy growing!
Hybrid Hybrids provide the best of both worlds. A hybrid is a mix of both indica and sativa cannabis varieties. Their effects vary from strain to strain. While the strain may feature traits from both cannabis species, the effects will either be slightly more mental or more physical. The overall high and growth patterns depend on each strain’s unique lineage.
Looking for some energy? Sativa strains provide uplifting, clear-headed, and energizing effects. Pick up a sativa when you need daytime focus and inspiration. These plants are tall, wispy, and generally well-adapted to warm climates. Expect late flowering times from these cerebral strains
When you need to de-stress and relax, an indica strain will lend a hand. Known for their intense heavy-body effects, you’ll quickly feel your muscles relax and pain ebb away. Indicas are best for nighttime use and are well-suited for indoor growers. These tend to be short, stocky plants native to cooler climates.
Urine: 3 to 77 days (10 to 30 days for regular consumers)
Blood: 1 to 7 days
Hair: 90 days
Saliva: 1 to 7 days
There are a few factors that influence the amount of time it takes to detox. These include:
Your individual metabolism
Frequency of exercise
Body mass index (BMI) (the higher the number, the longer it will take)
How often you consume cannabis
The potency of the cannabis consumed
The amount of cannabis consumed

Police departments around the U.S. are taking predictive crime prevention to new levels by building fake user accounts on Facebook and other social media sites, reports Cop Block. Local undercover agents pose as members of the community, allowing them to gather personal information about suspects they consider at “high risk” for being involved in “future crime.”
The U.S. Department of Justice has actually published a social media guide for law enforcement officials. According to this document, officers create fraudulent profiles, even though that violates official Facebook policy.
Police departments are also using predictive analytical policing software.This allows them to select local neighborhoods to patrol, based on social networking posts. If people are emotionally upset, for instance, or advertising weed and posting it on social media, the software program labels the neighborhood “high risk,” telling cops to focus on the area.
One police officer said he “was looking for a suspect related to drug charges for over a month. When I looked him up on Facebook and requested him as a friend from a fictitious profile, he accepted” and “he kept ‘checkin in’ everywhere he went, so I was able to track him down very easily,” reports Business Insider.
“Social media is a valuable tool because you are able to see the activities of a target in his comfortable state,” wrote another officer. “Targets brag and post information in reference to travel, hobbies, places visited, appointments, circle of friends, family members, actions, etc.”
Digital Trends uncharitably called social media drug dealers “The Stupidest People On The Internet.” As evidence for that claim, the site gives several examples of bone-headed moves by Facebook and Instagram-based weed dealers.
“The basic lack of understanding on display here about how the internet works either means a shocking amount of users don’t realize how easy they are to trace, or maybe more likely, that they don’t really care. Instagram nonchalance may be a private investigator’s new best friend,” the site said.
Some of the online dealers are exactly what they seem. They do sell weed locally by using social media for advertising and publicity purposes. And there are people—usually in legal states—willing to ship weed to places where it’s illegal (at a big, black-market profit, of course). A buyer can get in lots of trouble, though, if the cops figure out what’s going on and trace the package to the person’s house.
Being in a legal state doesn’t necessarily offer protection either. A report by CBS Denver showed that Denver police used social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to entrap and bust those who buy weed from anywhere other than the city’s licensed pot shops. The cops also set up pages to pose as buyers in order to catch dealers advertising on social media, reports The Free Thought Project.
Some of the fake social media pages created by police were complete with back stories and photos of grow operations they claimed to own, according to THCU Insider.
