The term Onucos (Onukwugwu) comes from the Igbo language of Africa. It means “the first born child”. In Nairaland, this translates into “first born son”. I am not sure what that means but I do know that if you don’t have a good relationship with your onuco you might find yourself in some trouble. Onuco can take many forms: a person who only does things for others, someone who takes advantage of others, or someone who doesn’t care about anyone else except themselves.
I have been called an onuco several times in my life. At the age of 8, I was called an onuco after I had a bad dream about being hit by a bus. My mother told me I had an onuco. I didn’t really understand what that meant until years later.
In the last year, I have been asked to leave two different jobs because I wasn’t doing enough work for people or taking responsibility for my actions. Both times, I was accused of being an onuco. When I tried to explain myself they would tell me how much work they did for me, how hard I had worked for them, and how nothing was happening for them. They were right in both cases. There are plenty of people out there who want to help, but no one wants to get their hands dirty. That is the definition of an onuco.
One of my favorite quotes is “We need to stop thinking of ourselves as victims. We have to start thinking of ourselves as survivors.” This applies to our own lives and to other people around us too. If we look at our pasts, we should realize that we have survived every situation and that we are still here. We have overcome adversity time and again.
When I say I am an onuco, I mean I try to do everything possible to ensure everyone’s success. While I am not perfect, I always think of others before myself. I believe that no matter how much I do for others, I can never repay the debt I owe to those who helped me along the way, especially my parents.

(noun) – “a species of mushroom that can cause serious illness if ingested.”
A species of mushrooms from the genus Onycocryptospora. Commonly known as the “pink paddy”, this fungal species grows as a white mycelium on dead leaves and wood. This fungus infects grasses and cereals and causes a disease called “leaf blight”. In China, this fungi has caused severe losses of rice crops, resulting in high mortality rates among young seedlings and low yields until the plants reach maturity.
The symptoms of infection include yellowing, wilting, leaf drop and death of the infected parts. However, other than that, it’s not dangerous to consume these molds because they are not harmful when applied topically as fungicides or insecticide.
(greek for “invisible”)
Onuco was developed by OncoCannaceuticals Corp., a company based out of Burlington, Ontario that focuses on developing natural products from organic agriculture. Their first product is called “Onuco” and contains numerous cannabinoids including CBC, CBG, CBN, CBD, THC-A and THCV; with no side effects or psychoactive properties. They have recently created a line of creams and lotions for topical pain relief. Onuco has obtained partnerships with several companies for distribution across Canada.
Water is the basis of life. Without water, nothing can exist. It is equally important for the growth of cannabis plants. Like air, water needs to be present at certain concentrations, however, it does not need to be stagnant. There are many different opinions about how much water is needed per square inch (square foot) of soil for optimal growth. It is generally accepted that the best results occur if the soil has sufficient moisture but is not saturated. As soon as the soil becomes too wet, the roots start to rot. This causes the stem to break off and eventually die, leaving behind dead leaves and branches. The root system must have access to excess water without being over-watered. Over-watering leads to soft, spongy stems, weak growth, and poor resin production. If the soil dries out too fast, the plant may experience leaf drop, which happens when the plant cannot take up enough water from its environment.
Organic matter is what makes the soil rich and helps the soil retain moisture. Fertilizers are used to add specific nutrients into the soil. Most fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, copper and trace amounts of zinc and iron. These nutrients help provide energy to the plant, stimulate the growth of desirable characteristics and aid in proper fruit set. The ideal ratio of organic fertilizer to non-organic fertilizer is 1:1. You can easily test your soil’s fertility by mixing 2 cups of topsoil with 4 gallons of tap water in a bucket. After 6 hours, mix the two together again. If the mixture remains homogenized and clear, then the soil is fertile and ready for planting.
