About the Practice

Crops like chilli (Capsicum annuum), cotton (Gossypium hirsutum), red gram (Cajanus cajan) and vegetables, the control of dryness and wrinkling can be achieved by sprinkling 200 g "banjar bhang" mixed with one bucket of the urine of cow at the time of flowering of the plants.

PAS 1:

"Collectively, the studies point to terpenoids as the primary Cannabis constituents responsible for arthropod deterrence. EO extracts-nearly pure terpenoids-worked the best. Aqueous and solvent extracts have lesser amounts of terpenoids, and lesser efficacies. Freshly harvested plant materials outgas terpenoids, not cannabinoids, and they repelled or killed arthropods, especially in closed laboratory conditions. Terpenoids dissipate outdoors, and this may explain poor results seen in companion plant experiments. Cannabis-based pesticides show promise in repelling pests of humans and crop plants. Surprisingly, some even showed efficacy against arthropods that attack Cannabis crops. No toxicity was seen in three non-target organisms, which is remarkable, to say the least. The mechanisms of action of Cannabis EO and THC remain to be elucidated."
