Cannabis is an annual, dioecious, flowering herb. The leaves are palmately compound or digitate, with serrate leaflets. The first pair of leaves usually have a single leaflet, the number gradually increasing up to a maximum of about thirteen leaflets per leaf (usually seven or nine), depending on variety and growing conditions.

The number one item missing in most “cannabis start up” check lists, is proper due diligence.
This is true for both small scale grows in closets or tents, all the way up to full scale open field crops.
The image pictured above is from early September, 2019 in Delta County Colorado, where due diligence was not performed properly about soil conditions and strain strength in alkaline soil.
1) law : the care that a reasonable person exercises to avoid harm to other persons or their property example: The defendant failed to exercise due diligence in trying to prevent the accident.
2) business : research and analysis of a company or organization done in preparation for a business transaction (such as a corporate merger or purchase of securities)
Doing Your Due Diligence
Due diligence has been used since at least the mid-fifteenth century in the literal sense “requisite effort.” Centuries later, the phrase developed a legal meaning, namely, “the care that a reasonable person takes to avoid harm to other persons or their property”; in this sense, it is synonymous with another legal term, ordinary care. More recently, due diligence has extended its reach into business contexts, signifying the research a company performs before engaging in a financial transaction. This meaning may also apply to individuals: people are often advised to perform their due diligence before buying a house, signing a loan, or making any important purchase.
This website, globalbio.me, is an exercise in due diligence for any entity wishing to explore, the now trendy cannabis space, which is a moral waste bin; full of corporations making millions of dollars from a plant, which are dependent on patients, recreational partakers, and ridiculous regulations that serve to keep the market grey enough to bolster prices, demand, and supply, all the while, humans are in cages currently for not having the right permission slips, having too much plant and not enough paper, or the human is not sick enough for possessing cannabis.
As a patient with daily medical concerns about how my health will allow me to participate in life, I depend on nature, the earth, living soil, to give me food, and medicine. I like to know what goes into my garden soil, there for my plants, ultimately into my body either in food or ingesting cannabis, fungi, and roots for physiological homeostasis.
Most people want to know what goes into their food and cannabis. Food and Cannabis companies, producers, grow operations, farms, ranches and industrial hemp operations should be no different. In many contexts, that is what due diligence in the cannabis space is about.
There are businesses, such as one that starts with an H and ends in a thorne, that supply a great deal of grow equipment to the cannabis community. They own 44 brands, some of the most well known names in the agriculture supply market.
“Hawthorne Gardening Company, formed in October 2014, is The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company’s subsidiary for cannabis growers and one of the first major investments by a major United States corporation in the cannabis industry.
Hawthorne Gardening was created “to meet the demands of hydroponic growers (a.k.a. cannabis growers) … [it] markets itself [to them] using language that’s in line with the free-spirited, artisanal cannabis farmer.” The business made its first cannabis-related investment in April 2015, when it bought General Hydroponics, a 35-year old liquid nutrient maker, called by High Times “the standard for hydroponic growers”. After the 2015 purchase, a Hawthorne executive told the press, “the lion’s share of General Hydroponics business in North America is cannabis growers”. Scotts’ CEO decided to spin off a cannabis business after a 2013 visit to a garden store in Yakima, Washington with a large section of hydroponic equipment. According to Forbes, Scotts had invested more than $250 million in the subsidiary by mid 2016. In March 2018, the Hawthorne Gardening Company and The Flowr Corporation (a Canadian Licensed Producer of medical cannabis) announced an R&D partnership, building North America’s first dedicated facility for cannabis research and development.”
It is a mystery why people would support Miracle Gro, or Scott’s or any of the products that came from the same company that makes RoundUP.
But, here we are in a market where large businesses dominate the agriculture communities. The chemical industry comes from processing petroleum bi-products and needing a market to sell their synthetic toxins or toxic cocktails to, the agriculture and gardening industry was one of their sectors.
Putting synthetic chemicals into soil has never sounded safe, nor has supporting businesses that do promote manufacturing, selling, or using chemicals like RoundUP. This industrial boiler de-scaler chemical, patented first in 1961-64, and then introduced into the agriculture community to prevent “malaria, in 1974” would target insects for other chemical use. (Thank you Gro-Kashi and Probiotic Farmers Supply for this helpful insight)
Glyphosate formulations and their use for the inhibition of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase
Protozoan parasites of the phylum Apicomplexa include some of the most important causative agents of human and animal diseases, in particular, malaria. The discovery that an organelle found inside parasites of this phylum probably stems from a plastid of plant origin has stimulated research on the effect of chemical herbicidal agents on Apicomplexa. Importantly, the growth of these parasites can be inhibited by the herbicide glyphosate, suggesting that the shikimate pathway will make a good target for the development of new anti-parasite agents. The present invention discloses the use of the herbicidal agent glyphosate in combination with the polyvalent anion oxalic acid for the prevention and therapy of these pathogenic infections.
Getting back to this due diligence effort in cannabis, as illustrated above, there should be some DO’s and DO NOT’s on every growers list when planning to grow plants.
1) Know your seed source. Heirloom Genetics, and Organically Grown seeds are ideal.
2) Know your grow medium. Every grower should know their water source, with tests as well as daily pH.
If one is doing an open field crop, get soil tests every 6 rows or so, and every football field length down the row, plot another sample. Mark your grid accordingly and match up soil sample results in your marked grid.
If one is doing a small tent grow with hydroponics, know your inputs, as well as water source, and have flood tables installed that hold your entire gallon(s) supply with ample room.
3) Know your plants grow schedule, and light requirements.
Outside growers should be prepared to offer vegetative lighting early for sprouting seedlings or maturing clones before field propagation. Soil should be prepared in the field as well, to match the medium in seedling or clone pots as much as possible.
Inside growers should be mimicking the equatorial sun patterns that match up with the lineage of where their strain comes from. Example: Kush strain growers lighting schedule should be on 14.5 hour max days with a 9.5 hour short day.
1) Do NOT buy products from big pharma, ie: Bayer, the maker of RoundUP. 44 brands listed above.
2) Do NOT expect to get rich quick from any plant crop.
3) Do NOT pollute the earth, our water, or our animal life with your poor skills at gardening.
Invest in Cannabis without touching a plant?!
The largest road block in the Cannabis industry is getting resources to line up to benefit the patients and not just the bottom line for a business model. Banks have struggled to get lines of credit and loans in place to farms and families in the Cannabis game due to Federal regulations that are in place to patent nature. Hemp is the new jargon word for investors looking to get into the Cannabis, however there are very few success stories in that sector. The wise investor would look at insular sectors around Agriculture and invest in the infrastructure of a farm which includes, but is not limited to:
safe food handling practices of all, through out the process.
The other service sectors of the Cannabis Industry can include marketing, advertising, and presentation or packaging of Cannabis. There are regulations surrounding many of these sectors, and this brings one of the most vital parts of the services sector, the attorneys and regulatory consultants. Due Diligence is necessary in all investments, but Cannabis Investments are an area that could earn you a jail cell if done with greed and malice as well as harmful intent to steal other people’s property or ideas.
Resources in Cannabis such as Capitol Financing are available from many sources, and these “investors” will ask for numbers, income and profit margins, as well as costs, and how many employees it takes to produce these numbers, and what it costs to produce these numbers, otherwise known as overhead. This is the worst part, for most folks, in Cannabis, who would rather pay attention to the plant and how to nurture nature. One of the most necessary aspects of business is the most difficult concerning Cannabis. Finding trusted partners to help fill in the gaps of areas of expertise is another feat of faith.
This website has been produced and published by a single person, who also runs a farm, builds greenhouses, grows food crops, tends to goats, chickens, cats and dogs, as well as writes books on a myriad of topics from Militarized Police Forces attacking Motorcycle Clubs to “How to Grow Weed in Outer Space.” Being the single source of content creation, analyzer of academic articles, validation of said material as well as the publisher and web administrator, it has all been a labor of love thus far, but the reach of these pages is going further than one person can manage, and the phone calls alone from businesses trying to get in touch with other businesses is worth hiring employees for.
Upgrades to the data contained on this site needs to take place as well with other states joining the Cannabis Culture. Currently there are over 8,000 Cannabis related pages (takes several minutes to populate) at the moment, and will update to around 20,000 pages and 40 states by June, 2021 for Cannabis Specific businesses alone.
If you would like to invest in this effort to list all of the Cannabis related businesses in the United States and Canada as well as help patients locate clean green cannabis, or “organic” produce, or their closest farm that offers CSA offerings as well as the nearest farmers markets around North America, then please contact Lee West, the owner of this website, for more information on what the cost of investment are, as well as the rate of return and benefits of becoming a partner such as access to the complete list of data collected that is not published like business owner email addresses.
The current value of the website is over $400,000 with each page worth a minimum of $50 if no products are listed. There is no revenue currently, however that does not mean that there is not value. I have a list of quality insular products chosen to advertise on this site that have been tried and proven as excellent products that focus on leaving a carbon negative footprint in their businesses and products.
I look forward to communicating with you and Thank You for Your Time!
