Grow House
A grow house is a property, usually located in a suburban residential neighbourhood, that is primarily used for the production of marijuana, it may be used for the production of other plants such as Psilocybin mushrooms.[1] The houses are typically outfitted with extensive hydroponic equipment to provide water, food, and light to the plants, and the houses themselves are usually kept in good condition to blend in with the neighbourhood.

Dopamine
Dopamine
(DA, a contraction of 3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine) is an organic chemical of the catecholamine and phenethylamine families that plays several important roles in the brain and body. It is an amine synthesized by removing a carboxyl group from a molecule of its precursor chemical L-DOPA, which is synthesized in the brain and kidneys. Dopamine
Dopamine
is also synthesized in plants and most animals. In the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter—a chemical released by neurons (nerve cells) to send signals to other nerve cells.

A cannabis edible, also known as a cannabis-infused food or simply an edible, is a food product that contains cannabinoids, especially tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).[1] Although edible may refer to either a food or a drink, a cannabis-infused drink may be referred to specifically as a liquid edible or drinkable. Most edibles contain a significant amount of THC, which can induce a wide range of effects, including relaxation, euphoria, increased appetite, fatigue, and anxiety.[2] THC-dominant edibles are consumed for recreational and medical purposes.[3] Some edibles contain a negligible amount of THC and are instead dominant in other cannabinoids, most commonly cannabidiol (CBD).[4] These edibles are primarily used for medical purposes only.[4]Contents1 History 2 Chemistry and pharmacology 3 Types3.1 Baked good 3.2 Drink 3.3 Ingredients3.3.1 Tincture 3.3.2 Oil 3.3.3 Butter4 See also 5 References 6 External linksHistory[edit]Process of making
