Hempire Tips and Tricks

Have you started playing Hempire yet? Well if you have or haven’t I got some tips and tricks for you. Like a breeding cheat sheet, your best approach from the start and some how to’s and work arounds.

From the Beginning

When you first start you come into town and your friends and family are so glad that your back and doing the same thing you did before, growing weed! Except this time it’s legal!

You have a basic set up, two strains of cannabis Afghani first and Skunk soon after. A grow room, a warehouse for your buds and a shed for other things like supplies such as lights, paint, and all sorts of things your going to need to upgrade and build your Hempire.

The Priorities/Tips and Tricks

Aside from of course completing your quest which all entail selling and growing weed. The number one problem your going to face is storage so listen up:

  • If your warehouse is full don’t trash anything just go breed in the lab, sell to weed on wheels, visit grandmas, the bakery, or somewhere to use the resources until you open your dispensary.
  • When the shed is full build something and/or buy new property.
  • Upgrade your warehouse and shed as often as possible. To upgrade you need specific items. Say you need a watering can for example. When you hold your finger over the item you need, it will tell you where to find it. Like watering cans can be found in garbage bins. While you get jars from completing deals with the Duke of Herb. Licenses to operate or renovate you get from the Mayors Aide and so on.
  • Upgrade grandmas house asap. She’s your cannabutter (which you make with Afghani buds), marshmellow  (with Northern lights that you create by breeding Afghani and Skunk together), cannaflour (with Skunk)  and once you hit level 21 chocolate (Northern lights and Afghani) connect. And since you need bud to produce all these treats she a great option for when your warehouse is full. Just give her the bud and put her to work.
  • Open the bakery. Here you’ll need grandmas butter and some Skunk for cookies. Her canna flour and Chemdawg (which you create by breeding Northern Lights and Skunk together) for dank donuts and  Afghani and flour for pot pies. Then at level 22 her chocolate and Hindu Kush (a cross between Northern lights and Chemdawg) for brownies. And tjis bakery is just another great way to free up space in your warehouse.
  • And the best way to get rid of extra product aside from selling to customers or weed on wheels is when you open the dispensary.
  • Next you need to build the oil factory. Here’s where you’ll make kief and at level 25 cannabis oil.
  • Build that Cannabis Factory which you can’t build until you reach level 18. And here is where you’ll get to make hash and wax.

What you don’t want to do it waste all your diamonds to speed things up. Just be patient. The second challenge is breeding:

Breeding Cheat Sheet:

  • Afghani + Skunk No 1 = Northern Lights
  • Northern Lights + Chemdawg = Hindu Kush
  • Northern Lights + Skunk No 1 = Chemdawg
  • Hindu Kush + Chemdawg = Sour Diesel
  • Hindu Kush + Sour Diesel = Haze
  • Haze + Sour Diesel = G13 Haze
  • G13 Haze + Chemdawg = Jack Herer
  • Breeding isn’t all about creating new strains either. You need to breed to strengthen your strains. When is comes to increasing your strains potency, aroma and pain relieve you need to understand that you only strengthen the mother with a strong father.

In Conclusion

The game is fun and very addictive. It’s a great way to feel what it’s like to live in a legal state. You see what I’ve been saying, that there are still rules to this, legal or not because your going to have several police encounters as you play. And you learn about the medicinal purposes of each strain too. Such as patients turn to Afghani , the potent indica to treat insomnia, pain and stress. While Sour Diesel is a sativa used to fade away depression to long-lasting relief. Some really interesting stuff in this game and it’s great to play at the beach, at home and even while enjoying some weed yourself too!

Dashcam and Waze App to Avoid Legal Ramifications

If you’ve been following me from my first post, Blazin in Jamaica, that wasn’t too long ago, then you already know that I have experienced some legal issues due to my being a weed connoisseur. And the truth is I’m always going to be a connoisseur however whether it’s medical or not, weed can get you in some jams but the best thing to do about being yourself is be your best self. And by best, I mean smartest.  I’m going to share my two best tips for covering your ass when comes to dealing with the cops.

First, I have my Dashcam, sold at many locations I picked mine up at Best Buy. Why a dash cam? Well here are some sad truths about law enforcement. They have protocols to follow, rules to enforce and a process that must be done a certain way in order to get a conviction. The number one thing to remember if you ever have to deal with the police is they are not your friend. This is just a job for them and their job is to convict.

Now here’s the catch. You were pulled over and were cooperative. Maybe you have a bag of weed in your car maybe you don’t? When asked if they can search your vehicle, as you have the right, you said no. Or you were searched with “probable cause” and it turns out you did have a bag of weed in your car, the cop is petty and wants to arrest you for a bag of weed and then you go to jail???

It’s very possible that you’re innocent. Even though cops might be portrayed as heroes to some they break laws all the time. What they write up in the report is what is considered to be true. When you go to court that cop is going to sit there with his shiny badge and say whatever he or she needs to say to match their report and close the case. And the saddest truth is you can be a perfect person, if what you say contradicts what the police said the judge will always side with the police unless you have evidence. That’s why you need a Dashcam.

It records visual and audio. It records forever, or at least it seems and when it does get full and nothing happened, you just delete and start all over in 3 easy steps. Which I’m not going over, once you have yours I’m sure there’s a 5-year-old out there that can help you out if you’re having any problems. Most importantly about the Dashcam is it does not lie.  Cops do. And that is why I highly recommend getting one because you never know who is going to pull you over and if you do meet an asshole cop, you need to protect yourself with your Dashcam evidence.

Next my second tip is the Waze app. Just like google maps in that it’s a GPS but with this one awesome feature. Waze is a community and other users can give you a heads up if they see police ahead. Likewise, you can also alert other users when you see them. The app will notify you when you’re within 2 miles of reported police.

Why do I like this app? Simple, because the best way to avoid legal ramifications is by avoiding police in general. Don’t give them an in. Wear your seat-belt, do the speed limit, follow the law. And we all know how to do it but let’s face it we don’t all the time. But with Waze we at least get a heads up and go into best behavior automatically. Great app, just love it!

The moral of the story here is it’s better to be safe than sorry. I personally wish I had a Dashcam through all of my police experiences in life. To say the least, I’ve met too many asshole petty cops in my life. And Waze helps me avoid them and my Dashcam helps me when I can’t. Oh and my grandfather said, just smoke it all so they don’t have any evidence on you, that helps too.

Think ahead be ready for anything and stay lit!!!
