DIY Branch Weaving

No matter what it may be, the time and effort put forth always leaves a reward, and the satisfying feeling of accomplishment. The art of weaving is one of those things that takes time and patience. I’ve always been drawn to large wall hanging weavings, but it wasn’t until after I saw them placed around Humboldt House that the desire to create one of my own really sunk in.

The idea for Cannabis Catering came to Nesbitt when he learned that his friend's diabetic mother had been diagnosed with cancer. "I would bring back edibles [from the dispensary], but they're so high in high-fructose corn syrup that she was high off sugar rather than being medicated," he says. So Nesbitt began experimenting with his own pot food--starting with mashed potatoes. Now Nesbitt cooks an array of cannabis-laced delectables. Each meal contains the equivalent of three to five pot cookies, but Nesbitt says he can customize the food depending on what customers want.

Zandbergen, experimented and successfully grew a rose that had its petals rainbow colored. As petals get their nourishment through stem, the idea is to split the stem into several channels and dip each one in a different colored water. This way all the colors will be drawn by the stem into petals and resultant rose will have all the colors in it. The same method can be applied to other flowers especially to Chrysanthemum and Hydrangea. You can use the same idea to color any flower, anyway you like. Cooking with Marijuana - StumbleUpon.
