  1. Help!

    by , Today at 06:47 AM
    I'm a first time grower and thought I was doing pretty well when suddenly my nephew comes by and advises me that I have a couple of plants with caterpillars! Yikes...I don't see very well, so I'm unable to just pluck them off. Plants are just a couple of weeks from harvest, and I don't know if I should try to spray them with something now, or harvest early??? Someone please help me, provide guidance, advice??? Thanks...

    It would be, but you could get away with a cheaper option. I have a reflux column/still, which I use to make the 93% alcohol. Then I turn it into a pot still when I'm making the oil (just by removing the packing material and not using the reflux cooling section). Column/still and boiler (30

Isnt there a window of potency, like after x amount of time with amber trichs, the plant will start to lose its potency if its not harvested?

  7. Legalization of cannibis in canada

    by , Yesterday at 03:01 PM
    It been a wonder of mine for a bit now

    How we as Canadiens have failed in this fight
    We allowed America to legalize before us
    on any level and on any side of the spectrum
    in any light Canada should have been before
    America.

    Just a bit of the chest

    In mushroom farming on logs, if one innoculates with multiple species, one mushroom species takes over the whole log. If one innoculates with a single species, that innoculum takes over the whole log - but the growth to flower happens faster and more robust with a single species.

    It is my understanding that mycorrhizal forming fungi follow the same pattern

Nutrients to use from start to finish. And any other information about growing and maintaining THC BOMB seeds would be greatly appreciated.
  13. But what about the children

    by , 08-31-2015 at 10:03 PM (Philosophically speaking)
    When it comes to legalizing cannabis there are many obstacles to overcome. One of the primary objections the prohibitionists use is the 'we must protect the children' line. This can be a very powerful argument as nobody wants to be seen as intentionally or unintentionally putting children in harms way or increasing their exposure to real danger.
