Cannabis Potential Part 3 A

Where do we grow all this cannabis? Part ‘A’

If you need to start at the first post in this series, that is here. This is part A of Where to Grow, Explaining “Feral Cannabis” which is beyond first-generation growth and appears to be ‘naturally seeded’ by animal and bird droppings. Usually, when I start a conversation about Cannabis and promote my vast awareness of the plant with my limited understanding, someone asks about the land needed. Most of my prior knowledge I learned from listening to the stories of weeducated individuals in all sorts of worlds during the last of the illegal years from about 1977 in a Northern British Columbia small town, then researching truths online after 2005. The community I grew up in was rumoured to have supplied the Cannabis to Prince George and points east, west, north and south of the hub city during many Prohibition years ending in 2018 in Canada. In return, before the hype of today with the opiate problem, they often traded Cannabis for cocaine and heroin and they said it layered the community a foot thick with those drugs. It has grown since then, but I feel it created the problems today, entirely created by an insane law that lumped Cannabis worse than those 2 drugs. But that’s so far from the question I added it to show the background as I listened to many stories that were proven as fact as I became as weeducated with no growing experiences. I’ll break this into 2 parts so you see my reasoning of where to grow and how it adds, not takes away from, existing biomass by filling a niche in agriculture today.

Cannabis in the wild

Early settlers of North America first settled here because the land was prime to grow cannabis for the homeland and their own needs as they settled. The land in the ‘Homeland’ was hard to secure and grow cannabis, due to conflicts changing borders and taking prime farmland during times of conquest. In the decades before the ‘European invasion’ created the United States, the new nation used Cannabis in part to break free from Europe and become independent. They used the plant diversely, and it needed very little human intervention while growing, allowing settlers to shape the country. Cannabis’s end product of Hemp was needed for war efforts at home. It supplied materials like rope and sails needed to explore, food and materials for settlements among all the other resources the new land offered. Most of that early cannabis escaped the plantations, which were often abandoned and forgotten as generations progressed. Speed further from 1899 to well after 2000 North America, law enforcers took care of ‘ditch’ or wild Cannabis with prejudice where and when they noticed it.

It still grows all over the globe, including North America. It grows, unseen in a ditch, spread free and proud, perhaps on a remote mountainside or sheltered in an unseen valley. Studies show that Feral Cannabis is of inferior quality and could be an industrial class for at least the seeds, much more with awareness. Seed-eating small animals sit around the bottom of the food chain and birds love Cannabis seed in their diet. So do larger creatures who eat vegetation and those who also eat those creatures. Cannabis Seed survives the digestive tract and is deposited in a smelly pile of nutritious fresh fertiliser, even when going through the predator as a second digestive tract. They found the plant most often in areas of disturbed and compacted soils like ditches and industrial lands abandoned, perhaps deposited by a rodent or bird chasing a rodent, perhaps both while and after consumption of the smaller prey. Where Feral Cannabis grew, it tolerated other species native to the environment and appeared to improve the soil and enhance surrounding biodiversity. Refer Madness calls it invasive. In the wild it exists peacefully coexisting naturally globally, flourishing strong without human intervention. Including in North America where Refer Madness laws call it a ‘Noxious Weed’, but not officially as the Google keyword brought up all sorts of government websites and info suggesting noxious weed info links, but no mention of Ferial or wild Cannabis, Hemp at their websites on the subject. Stay tuned for part ‘B’ in about an hour!

Food services in Canada

Meals

There are food services actually “Meal Kit Food Delivery” services that save you time from meal planning, targeted for the busy person perhaps with a family, with perhaps more than one mouth to feed.  Different services from raw ingredients with recipes to match, some provincial here in Canada to home delivery within an hour from local diners and grocery stores c/w alcohol and I hope in some near, almost predictable future, ‘Cannafood‘.

Here in Canada, if one went out for Cannafood, they would have to walk home or hire a cab.  Driving while under the influence of Cannabis or ‘Drugged Driving‘ is illegal.  It is odd that the law enforcement of North America considers Cannabis a drug in the same or worse category than Cocaine or Heroin, particularly with driving, but times are changing with what I call #Weeducation.  Nothing like home made though, while you wait for delivery.  In some areas, raw and concentrated Cannabis could be delivered too, locally and discreetly, perhaps not legally but fresher and more affordable.  Stay tuned for the future!

Canada wide delivery

There is a particular service I used for a few months.  GoodFood I can truly rate.  Their food arrives fresh on Dry Ice, the recipes are easy to follow and depending on basic skill level always comes out perfect.  They have a multitude of dinner meals, lunch brunch and breakfast beverages and meals including vegan/vegetarianism options to choose from.  It’s a good idea to know your protein substitutes as a vegan vegetarian diet is lacking as a major source of that overall, GoodFood has that info too as they appear to care about you.  They are just one federal service though.

Another one that I am not familiar with I first saw on Facebook was “Hello Fresh“.  They offer the same services as GoodFood above, likely with different meal choices.  I would expect that most of them offer about the same service with their own diverse menus, but some are based within the province and imho better as the food does not travel as far from farm to table.  That has to be a consideration in this age of Environmental awareness as ‘Local’ is best, and Provincial is second.  Nation should be the last choice although some international foods are good as they have unique tastes.  Never get international food as a ‘Meal Kit’ unless it’s prepared fresh, flash frozen raw, cold transported and your tastes demand it.  There are stores and diners likely local to you with the flavours you desire, perhaps deliver, and as above homemade is always best.

BC Provincial

It seems in the city of Vancouver, BC there are local BC Wide Meal Delivery Kits, a new one opened up delivering to Canada beginning here in BC.  Many Vancouver diners, grocery stores, and farmers markets appear to be listed to send meal kits to customers perhaps across our province.  Check the websites linked to those places in the above link for more info.  Google or use your favorite search engine the keywords “Provincial Meal Kits” for your province to see if you have any choices.  In grocery stores, you may have other shops that deliver, but many “Save On Foods” have a delivery service available, most have park and shop online shopping too, select your groceries online through the app or website and select a time to park and wait for them to be brought to your vehicle

Local

Well, Local I will limit to Delivery services from Diners you might or might not have in your community, I am sure you know the minor strictly local Dial a Bottle company delivering anywhere in Canada sometimes with more than just alcohol via deliveryservices listed below, or even your buddy Ralph who charges a gas fee and the local Booze Can epense after hours… Here in Canada, we have services such as “Uber Eats” where they operate, as Skip the Dishes operates in more communities sometimes delivering groceries through phone and computer apps like InstacartPizza Hut finally got delivery in my town likely had it in yours from long ago.  Pizza places of course you have your local shops delivering in all communities perhaps as well as the big name ones like “Little Caesars“, “Dominos Delivery (avoid the ‘noid, order tonight) and others in a chain across the nation
