I have been obsessed with hydroponic cannabis plants since I first came across them seven years ago. I immediately knew this is the king of all cannabis by far. Since then I have tried and tested various ways to grow them. Not each try ended in success, but when I did succeed, I realized how easy it is to grow them if only one knows the tricks and tips. Here in this book I share my proven methods for you to try. Hydroponics is the term which means ´´water working´´. The practice of growing marijuana with hydroponics is just like the growing of plants in highly oxygenated water or in nutrient enriched liquid. There are many types of hydroponic approaches that are suitable for indoor growing of marijuana. Hydroponics has the ability to grow crops much higher than the traditional yields, particularly in those areas where the soil cannot support crops. The growth rate of marijuana becomes double when the hydroponics method is used. The plants will grow much healthier and faster in the hydroponic system as compared to the traditional soil-based method. This book comprises the detailed explanation of the steps, tools, and setups required for growing hydroponic cannabis. The book is divided into seven sections; each section contains detailed information about the hydroponics process. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randal Schaffer.

By the author of The Science Delusion, a detailed account of how science can authenticate spirituality.To go beyond is to move into a higher state of consciousness, to a place of bliss, greater understanding, love, and deep connectedness, a realm where we finally find life´s meaning - experiences for which all spiritual seekers seek. Dr Rupert Sheldrake, writing as both a scientist and a spiritual explorer, looks at seven spiritual practices that are personally transformative and have scientifically measurable effects.He combines the latest scientific research with his extensive knowledge of mystical traditions around the world to show how we may tune in to more-than-human realms of consciousness through psychedelics, such as ayahuasca, and by taking cannabis. He also shows how everyday activities can have mystical dimensions, including sports and learning from animals. He discusses traditional religious practices such as fasting, prayer and the celebration of festivals and holy days.Why do these practices work? Are their effects all inside brains and essentially illusory? Or can we really make contact with forms of consciousness greater than our own?We are in the midst of a spiritual revival. This book is an essential guide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rupert Sheldrake. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hodd/002107/bk_hodd_002107_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
