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 from one of those unwanted government funded vacations 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 relief you need to understand that you only strengthen the mother with a stronger 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!

Weed and Yoga

Yoga for me is about healing.

I was first introduced to yoga back in 2006. I was in a bad car accident and my chiropractor told me the pain was never going to go away unless I strengthen my back, and he recommended yoga to do so. And so I did and it did work!  It was a negative turned into a positive. I didn’t go into my first class a happy camper but I still go to class because I love it.

Yoga teaches you so much about yourself and how your body and breath are connected. It heals your body and mind. Similarly but also in a completely different way from Mary Jane. You have to do a lot more work when it comes to yoga. But when I’m “moody,” it probably means I’ve been away from my mat for too long or am in need of a blunt. Which is why it comes as no surprise that people are combining the two. I have for years (secretly of coarse) but then again I do almost everything a little stoned, you know…

Now weed and yoga is a trending topic. Lots of states are going recreational and me and hopefully you have our fingers crossed that in the near future the entire country will follow in suit. Regardless, right now in Venice, California you can go have a yoga sesh at a Lit Yoga class where you begin class with a tea and cannabis ritual.  In Aspen Canyon Ranch, Colorado you can go on a Ganja Yoga retreat. It’s such an exciting time to be alive!

With all that said here are my:  Tips when it comes to Weed and Yoga.

  • First, you must try it! It can even be your 1st class ever. Just make sure the class you pick matches your beginner-intermediate-advanced skill set. Because trust me, yoga is hard and you will fall but that’s all part of the practice.
  • As for the class, sun salutations work great. And kind of make a lot of sense because who better to salute during a cannabis yoga class than the sun that helps the plants grow. Hmm.. maybe something to mediate on. Personally, Vinyasa is what I’m all about. Here’s one of my favorite flows that I wake and bake to often with Heather

(check out her blog Dashworthy and show her some love too while your at)

  • Finally, your mind state. Yoga is all about connecting the mind and body so take it seriously. Come into it with an open mind, feel every breath, respect, enjoy and embrace the experience.

Namaste.
