If you feel a post is inappropriate

Hi folks,

Just a quick note in regards to the moderation of the group. Sometimes if I am a bit short on time or if we get a lot of posts at once I may have to just skim the overall gist of the posts rather than reading them word for word before I approve them, also we all have a different perspective as to what is acceptable and thus there may sometimes be the odd post that gets through that you may feel is inappropriate. And while this doesn’t seem to happen very often if there is anything that anybody reads and feels is inappropriate then please feel free to either shoot me a PM or use the contact form to let me know and I will always be happy to take another look at it.

Please keep in mind however that a post does have to be quite bad or harmful to the group as a whole for us to delete it, I don’t like to be too heavy handed with that kind of moderation and try to reserve it for only when it is absolutely necessarily as generally I like people to be able to have their say and most things can be ironed out with dialogue and often we can all learn from it, that said if you feel something is inappropriate like I say please feel free to let me know and I will be happy to take another look.


All the best,

    Skunk Weed

    Skunk marijuana is a type of the drug that has been selective bread for strength and yield. Needless to say it is very strong and due to its genes and the way it is grown is far from natural, for more information on this you may want to check out this post, marijuana the natural herbal argument. It has become very popular and in many parts of the world is what most people smoke these days. It may also be known by many other names like hydro, or the chronic.

        The site administrator has a couple errors here. Hydro is any type of marijuana that is grown indoors under lights. Not necessarily skunk. Chronis is just a name put on any high potency marijuana. Again not necessarily skunk weed. Skunk the drug smells exactly a skunk. That is why it is called sakunk weed. No other reason. Skunk the drug varieties are mainly short dense budded plants from Indica varieties. Indica are shorter darker green Marijuana plants that have a shorter season. Mostly comming from Afghanistan type marijuana's. The taller longer growing season plants are called Sativa's. They can be crossed with Indica varieties and have been with great results depending on what side of the fence you sit on. To a non smoker the smell would be aweful but to the drug smoker it is deliceous. Skunk the drug tends to be very potent. It does not develope the skunk scent until the flowers are close to 100% ripe. The buds of marijuana plants are the flowers responsible for seed production.

          What do these terms mean? Ok there may be some international differences and changes over time in terms of what the meaning of those words has now become, but here in the UK in this day and age, when most people use the term skunk, they are merely referring to high potency, high grade weed, which is usually grown hydroponically and has a high yield and even though it is possible to hydroponically grow any type of weed, when most people use the term skunk, hydro or chronic, they are merely referring to that type of weed. Even though the technical meaning of those words may be different, that’s the meaning that the word now has to them.

          Although I do acknowledge that if you use the term hydro in regards to anything other than hydroponically grown weed, which incidentally is how I used to grow my weed, than you are wrong. I am very sorry, I probably should not of used that as an example of many of the other terms used for skunk. I was just trying to give a couple of examples of words people may use when they refer to that type of weed.

            Terminology.

            Of coarse some terminology in different countries can be different. That doesn't mean the ternminology is correct. Skunk is only the drug that smells like skunk, it is a specific breed or a crossbreed that smells skunky. Hydro is only indoor weed. Chronic is any weed, indoor or outdoor that is top shelf. If they are using terminology that is different they are incorrect. Marijuana has many different names that growers apply. AK-47, M-49 are commercial breeds used and bred for indoors. Neither are skunk varieties and neither are called chronic. Super skunk is a hydrophonic variety of skunk weed. Hasha is an out door variety of skunk weed. Both are called skunk one is a hydro and both are chronic. Hope this helps sort out some of the terminology. If you do a search on the seed banks you will find many varieties of marijuana indoor and outdoor. Some are skunks and they will state that. Only the most potent varieties are called chronic. The term chronic is a very general term covering all potent types of marijuana. I'm sure some make all kinds of mistakes on the streets naming the different types of pot... They would only be localized. Overall the above terminology is world wide correct.
            Get a hair cut and get a real job!

              I do agree that technically skunk is a specific breed of marijuana, but and I can only speak for what the term now means in the UK, that is no longer the meaning the word has now taken on, at least not for most people, most people here in the UK when they use the term just mean the type of weed, that Americans for example may call hydro or the chronic, basically the usually grown indoors strong stuff, are they technically wrong? Well yes they are technically, but and I say this as a former grower who has grown quite a few different strains, most people don’t know that much about the drug and when they use the term skunk you know what they mean, they may well be referring to AK-47 or M-39, but to them it’s still “skunk”. A strain like AK-47 from my experience is definitely strong enough to be called the chronic. Anyway all I am saying is you have to appreciate what the term now means to most people, at least in the part of the world that I live, so if anything I would say the term skunk now has two meanings, a very specific strain of marijuana to us cannabis geeks and a type of the drug that includes many different strong strains to most people in general.

                To most people in the UK skunk marijuana is just the strong stuff like ak47. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the actual skunk strain. But different words can mean different things depending on where you live in the world.

                  Yeah loads of people in the uk when they say skunk mean strains like AK47, M39, northern lights, indica or sativa, it’s all skunk to them.

                    The term skunk in Britain has kind of evolved to just mean strong herbal cannabis that is the result of selective breeding and the admin is right it is not natural. Not like the drug that grows in many parts of the world naturally. Which in my opinion is much safer. It’s a shame that for most people in Britain skunk is starting to become all you can get hold of these days.

                      Increased strength is one of the dangers of prohibition. That's why we have mainly crack cocaine on the streets instead of powder form. It's a direct result of prohibition.

                      Contamination is also a direct result of prohibition and poses much greater risk to health than strength, particuarly with cannabis.

                      To demonstrate this, consider that under prohibition of alcohol, the product available is largely adulterated moonshine, whose strength or quality is unknown. You do not find Moonshine in bars. You find a selection of alcoholic drinks labelled for strength. These beverages have also had to go through strict quality controls to prevent contamination.

                      Under the prohibition of cannabis again we have this product of unknown strength and quality. The solution is some form of control and regulation for quality and strength.

                      People who drink beer in bars don't neccessarily drink hard liquor. No they enjoy the beer. The beer is of great variety. It's the same for cannabis. There are around 1500 different strains of cannabis all with different effects. This is largely due to the 400 different chemicals in cannabis which again should be controlled for. The current policy does not allow for this control and it is the users who suffer with more harmful contaminated high strength drug that would not exist in the same form were appropriate controls in place.

                        I have just come across the rehab group and felt I had to add to the above post which I agree with wholeheartedly.

                        If we want to protect our kids from all drugs not just Cannabis we must take the control and regulation out of the hands of organised often violent crime.

                        If for example think, if in the 70's when the ACMD first suggested downgrading cannabis to class C that we had gone a bit furthur and legalised cannabis. THis would have meant that very probably higher strength cannabis would not have been allowed for sale and we would have strength quality, source, CBD/THC ratio public health measures etc displayed on the packaging. It would have wiped out most of the street dealers that predatory target our kids.

                        At the moment what we have is street bud or as the media likes to call it "Skunk" I hate using that word because it really does show ignorance about the many hundreds of varieties of cannabis and is usually used by politicians and the media who really no little about what they are talking about. Skunk just being one particular strain of cannabis like Cox is a variety of apple. The Cannabis on our street is often not grown to maturity is high in Artificial fertilizers because the plant is not flushed with water at the end of flowering nor is it allowed to cure. All this contributes to the increase in danger of its use among young teenagers. WHo according to my son and the kids I meet in my job find it easier to get hold of than alcohol !! And considering how much we push alcohol in our society and how readily available it is just shows how prohbition has failed to control/reduce supply.

                        If Cannabis was legally produced by the Government as some Councils are doing in Holland we could have a lower strength cannabis that is high in the ANTI psychotic CBD's and low in the potentially psychosis causing THC. We would have legal dealers asking for proof of age and the tax collected could be used to provide rehabilitation centres and services for the minority for whom cannabis use becomes a problem. Remember and it is often difficult when you have family members adversly affected by Cannabis that the vast majority of users use cannabis without any ill affects.For example the ACMD said that for the higest risk age group the !6-24 year olds you would have to stop 5000 males ( 20,000 females ) using cannabis to stop 1 case of schizophrenia. After the age of 28 or so it is very unlikely that you will develop shizophrenia with or without the use of cannabis.

                        I think it is very dangerous to have a kneejerk reaction to the use of Cannabis of lets just put people in jail for longer and hope that stops the use. Well it patently doesn't and it makes the potential for harm even greater.If like me you want to reduce the potential for harm that cannabis can cause then Prohbition is not the way.

                        I do work within the drug service and mix with users of many drugs. One thing that is reassuring among the older inveterate users of Cannabis is that they almost unanimously agree that kids under 18 should not be using cannabis and some would put that limit at over 21. The present situation is that kids as young as 10/11 are getting hold of it and we must stop this Increasing criminal penalties I fear will have the opposite affect. my greatest fear is that in 5 years time after 5 years of Cannabis as class B use will have started to rise again after its fall while it was class C this will show fianlly that Drug use in our society needs to be treated as a Public health issue rather than one of criminality. Just as we ahve done with tobacco an icredibly dangerous and addictive drug millions have quit due to public health intiatives labelling education etc. If we can do that for tobacco without furthur ruining someones life by throwing them in jail then surely we can do it with cannabis.

                          I agree that the issue of drugs should be viewed as one of public health rather than criminality, so I think drug use should be decriminalised and I agree that there are certain down sides as a result of drugs being illegal. However there would also be certain down sides as a result of drugs being legal, for one far more people may do them, just like they do with alcohol and nicotine, society already has enough of a problem with them two, do we really want to add to it by legalising the others.

                            I think we need to look at the evidence as regards the affect of Prohibition on reducing drug use as this isn't really born out by the facts. The recent Lords debate on the reclassification of Cannabis used the Australian example where 2 states one that punished harshly and the other that treated Cannabis possesion as a misdemanour had no differance in overall cannabis use. In holland the use of Cannabis tolerated by adults is seen as an old mans pastime by teenagers and decidedy not cool hence a much lower use by that age group than in the UK.

                            I'm sure the very fact that cannabis is illegal in UK makes it much more a rebellious statement by our youth. The drugscope survey of last year showed that only 2% of users consider its legal staus as a barrier to use. In fact my main worry with the increase to class B is it makes it less likely that users who do experience difficulty with its use will be less likely to ask for help becasue of fear of criminal sanctions.

                            It seems that the strength of criminal sanctions as regards cannabis has very little affect on use. The USA has some of the most stringent penalties for cannabis use. In fact a cannabis user is arrested every 38 seconds yet it has one of the highest rates of use.
                            I agree with Cannabis Rehab Admin about the mess we have made with alcohol but as the previous poster said the example of Tobacco is more pertinent. Education, truthful facts on the harms caused, a labelling for strength, no advertising etc has encouraged millions to stop using.I'm sure the same could be done with Cannabis .And remember Nicotene is far more addictive than cannabis

                            My one hope is that with most things the public is ahead of the politicians and they just need to catch up. The much trumpeted and expensive public consultation on this issue the results of which were quietly hidden away by the Government because it was counter to what they wanted to do
                            I quote
                            Considerably more consultation respondents indicated that they were against
                            the reclassification of cannabis to class ‘B’ than stated that they were in
                            favour. Of those who stated that they would not want the Government to
                            reclassify, a large number said that they would like to see cannabis legalised
                            altogether. In fact, on balance, as many would like to see cannabis legalised
                            as would like to see cannabis reclassified to class B‘

                            end quote

                            We all would rather that our citizens didn't use drugs but this is the real world so we need to minimise harm to those that choose to use them not criminalise them. Lets hope our Politicians wake up sometime soon.

                              Does anyone know how strong dutch passion skunk #1 is? I was growing and smoking it for about 3 years before I gave up. I didnt think it was particularly strong but Ive heard that skunk can usually be the strongest, probably should have done more research before I grew it
