420 Magazine Background



New Member
Hello 420 members! I am living in South central Alaska near Anchorage and originally from Missouri. The travelling nature of my job has taken me all over the world and landed me in this beautiful state. I came upon this site while searching for updates to Alaska's MMJ legislation, looks like a nice mature place. I am a member of other sites but have grown tired of the teen (no offense kids) banter and desire a more mature crowd....at least mentally mature.
I moved here from Fairbanks and had a rough time meeting the 420 crowd due to my age and my job as a travelling Software Analyst. I decided to grow my own since this state has some pretty liberal laws toward growing and possesion I am a rookie but currently growing Low Rider #2 using the Aerogarden veggie pro due to its 3 ft lamp height and just started a soil grow with bag seed. I have plans for an outdoor grow as soon as the night temps climb some.
I originally smoked for recreation but have found MJ much more effective than Paxil for my PTSD and anxiety. I suffer from a permanent eye condition and damaged knees due to prior US Military service. MJ does help the knee pain but I have never been on a script for it. So yeah I use it as "self" medication if you will. I also just like to get high sometimes, its better than a beer after a hard day IMO.

Enough about me, any Alaskan's/Aerogarden/Lowrider 2 fans in the house?

Thanks for the kind words Weed! The AG Veggie Pro has an adjustable light schedule and a 24/7 option. To help simplify the guess work I just bought a light timer and set it to 18/6 as recommended by the breeder for max yield. I did sucessfully grow bag seed in the AG once before so this is actually grow #2 in the AG. The Autoflowering LR2 in the AG seems to be a good way to grow small plants and maintain a manageable amount of MJ. I will give you a potency report in about 4 weeks.

Info on the Aerogarden setup to those interested:
5x3x2 small indoor greenhouse
Aerogarden Veggie Pro
Master Gardner kit (blank seed pods)
Additional airpump, gangvalve, 2 airstones
PS2 cord plugged into AG lights
Light timer for AG lights (PS2 cord)
2 supplemental 43w 2700k cfl's for flowering
Clip on fan
Small humidifier
Hannah Ph and temp meter
General Hydroponics Micro Grow Bloom Nutes
RO water

*phew* I guess I should start a grow journal
