Seven Free Items on the Maine Craig’s List That You May Actually Use. It's always fun to cruise around Craig's List to find what sort of FREE stuff you can pick up in our area! Some is pure junk, but with a little hard work and ingenuity, other stuff could be the find of a lifetime! Here's a few free items on the Maine Craig's List that you may actually use, or maybe not. Like I said, with a little hard work and a little love, this cruiser may get you all the way to New Zealand!
The boat is located in Ellsworth, and the mast, boom, sails and all hardware, free! You could either bust up these crates for firewood, or, you could pull off some very creative wood-working, and maybe actually build a hut for your own snowmobile! The stack of crates is 8 feet tall, 12 feet wide, and 20 feet long, and it's located in Bangor. There's good money piled up there in a yard somewhere off Stillwater Avenue in Orono! Here's a pretty cool leather couch that's currently sitting in someone's garage in Lewiston. With a little bit of leather cleaner and elbow grease, this may be good enough to drink a Schlitz or two while watching the game in your man cave. Shine this baby up, replace a key or two and then have someone tune it, and then just imagine how impressed your friends will be when they walk into your living room and see it! There is no doubt that it will be the hit of any party, because there's always someone who will know how to play it! Here's an older model Hot Springs hot tub located in Bangor that is big enough for four people! According to the owner, the tub needs a little fixing, but nothing that an everyday handy-man can't handle.
You'll need a trailer to move it, but just think how relaxed your muscles will feel after you get it going and you're soaking in it some Saturday night with your lady! Here's HP PSC 500 printer/scanner/color copier located in Sullivan that hasn't been used in a couple of years, but it's been well cared for and seems to work pretty well. Face it, you always need a copier for one reason or another, and it's the right time of the year for all of those butt photos that your friends will want to take at the holiday party! Landrace Strains: Exploring the DNA of Modern Cannabis Varieties. Landrace strains are cannabis strains that are indigenous to a certain area of the world, which is coincidentally how some of the popular strains from today get their names. Landrace strains are confusing to many, since there’s not nearly enough applicable cannabis education around the world. These strains actually set the bar for growers and breeders around the world, but also give them a platform on which they can build upon. Botanists believe that cannabis was first grown and domesticated in the Middle East several thousand years ago, mostly in the Hindu Kush area which is today on the borders of several countries. Cannabis is now enjoyed by people on each and every continent, but of course, the bud we are consuming today isn’t the same that was first grown and domesticated in the Hindu Kush mountain region. Cannabis strains have evolved and changed in several ways, and so today we have several genotypes of cannabis (sativa, indica, ruderalis and hybrids) and hundreds, if not thousands of phenotypes that are genotype and environment interactions combined. As you can see from the image above, landrace strains can be considered as the dinosaurs of the cannabis world—they are old, super cool, and you just don’t get to see them in their original form anymore. There’s been a lot of natural cross breeding and inbreeding with these old strains, resulting in landraces either losing quality genetics or their potency severely dropping due to poor agrarian habits of growers. For some strains, such as G13, we’re not even sure if they were engineered and bred in a laboratory or if they are perhaps one of the true landraces that used to dominate vast regions. Lots of actual landrace strains were brought to Europe and America in the 60’s and 70’s for commercial use, especially through the Hippie Trail which led across the Middle East and through central Europe, all the way to the UK and later US. US soldiers also brought back tons of seeds from landrace strains harvested in East Asia, as the Vietnam War was raging at the same time the Hippie Trail was one of the main smuggling routes. Landrace strains are cannabis phenotypes that are unique and native for certain areas of the world. Good examples of landrace strains are: Lamb’s Bread from Jamaica Hindu Kush from the Middle East Swazi Gold from South-Central Africa. These strains are pure sativas and indicas, which gives them a unique genotype—genetic constitution of each strain in particular. When I say genetic constitution, I don’t mean just THC and CBD levels. No, what I mean by genetic constitution is their ability to grow well in their natural habitats, and to continue doing so when crossed with other landraces, especially when put in different habitats. Since cannabis can grow almost anywhere up to 50° latitude North and South, these strains can grow in a variety of habitats—warm, cold, humid, arid, you name it. Of course, landrace strains that are used to living high up in the mountains with no humidity and warmth aren’t going to grow and perform well when put in a hot and humid environment.
This is one of the biggest flaws of landrace strains—They adapt extremely poorly to the environment. They are praised, however, for their ability to grow extremely well in areas even remotely resembling their natural habitat. Landrace strains can live anywhere up to 50° latitude North and South, which is a pretty wide belt around the equator. Let me put that into perspective for you: The 50th parallel North, which marks the 50° of latitude North from the equator, passes through the following countries: France, Belgium, Czechia, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Mongolia, China, Canada and the UK. On the other side, the 50th parallel South pretty much swallows the whole continents of South America, Africa and Australia, even New Zealand as it passes below each of these. Various cannabis strains that initially grew in specific parts of the world quickly spread through the rest of the world in the New Age, as Europeans colonized the world. Landrace strains are still present in countries and areas they first came from, however in smaller numbers and with slightly diluted genetics. There are 6 major areas that are characteristic for the landrace strains they gifted to the world.
This area is located around the Hindu Kush mountains, which famously birthed many fan-favorite indica strains.
