Grow Journal of the Month: April 2020
Yup, this NL is some dank ass weed. She’s already nice and smooth. Strong effects too, wow. I’m expecting a sharp come down though, as uncured weed is notorious for.
Sounds like your mom is a "club pro" Sweet...I found after talking to my mum that I transposed a tennis term in with golf. She is not a semi-pro, she is an assistant trainer, is paid for what she does by her clients and is a big deal in the clubhouse. I got the lecture on how pro's play for money, the rest of us pay to play. She gets paid for passing her skills on to others, mostly wealthy older ladies.
As far as the medical card goes, yes, a regular doctor will laugh and scold you, with very few exceptions. Typically you will meet with this cannabis "doctor" online and an official looking person in a white coat will appear on your screen and will ask you two questions related to your chronic condition and you will learn that with your cash payment, you will have been "qualified." Your family GP does not need to be involved. Once you get that "prescription" then you can apply for your official Missouri card or cards with the Department of Health.
The 2a thing is still up in the air and being challenged in at least 3 court cases around the nation, with standing. I own several firearms and I am not giving them up. According to my Sheriff, unless they are called to my house on other matters where my guns are involved, no one is ever going to question me or try to take away my guns or my CCW because I grow pot.
What is happening is the ATF form that you have to fill out when purchasing a new firearm is going to force you to lie. There is a checkbox that asks if you are taking drugs, and cannabis does apply. If you check the box, you will be turned down. You have two choices if a medical patient, make a mistake while filling out that form by not checking that box, or don't purchase any new guns until this works its way through the courts. Also, in keeping with CCW rules, don't carry your weapon when intoxicated or can be proven to be so.
As far as full recreational goes... I am not sure that Missouri is going to be ready for that, heck, its now in its second year and we still don't know what medical looks like in this state. I am glad they are starting to make the noise now, but I see little chance of it passing (especially with Parsons in charge) until we are at least a year into the full use and distribution of medical cannabis in this state. Missourians are going to want to see the revenue and what happens on the highways and with crime and other drug use rates before they go all out on this, IMHO.
They're starting to get some of what good cannabis brings. Some of them anyways.I've been having GI problems recently(doing better now), and just had an upper GI at the VA. When the Doc was giving me my pre-op talk he asked if I used cannabis for nausea, and I told him that I did. He seemed to approve.
and in the uk. the ex prime ministers hubby and the minister for healths hubby are the ONLY licencee growers. corrupt greedy bastards. Health minister said no proof of medical benefit yet her husband exports billions of weed globally for health. roll on real collapse now. these greedy bastards need public slaughtering along with their sucubus offspring too. bred for greedI wish my country would wake up,
we don't have a problem exporting it but deny it's own population proper usage.
(sorry mini rant over)
U sound like one of us Gg.and in the uk. the ex prime ministers hubby and the minister for healths hubby are the ONLY licencee growers. corrupt greedy bastards.

Congratulations on your quarantine emancipation; that must feel like a real relief. Scary times indeed.You are doing very well Homer, and thank you for the validation. It looks like you have that stuff pretty well figured out now and can recognize the markers. As you said, it's no harder than following the directions. I am very happy to see such a healthy garden and another successful gardener able to read the plants well enough to use the supplements successfully!
Wide mouth jars. Problem solved, lol.Congratulations on your quarantine emancipation; that must feel like a real relief. Scary times indeed.
I appreciate the generous appraisal of my growing skills but I wouldn’t say I can so much as recognize markers as I can simply tell when a leaf is showing stress but I have no idea what the specific deficiency or lockout is. I have looked at several photographic guides of nutrient deficiencies and they all seem to vary and none seem to ever really match my leave’s problems so I find your ability to diagnose from leaves pretty remarkable.
I am just adjusting for green and assuming everything else is in balance the way Greenleaf proclaims and things seem to be working better than ever. I’m around week five of flower at 6 g per gallon MC and last watering I just introduced .25 g per gallon BE.
I am getting some pinhead-sized light spots on my upper leaves and I thought it was the beginning of a deficiency which is partly why I introduced the BE but on closer inspection, it is only the upper leaves and it definitely seems to have a direct relationship to the intensity of the light the leaf receives so I think it’s LED burn. But then again maybe there is a deficiency rendering the leaves more susceptible to it I don’t know but I am monitoring it and hopefully perhaps delusionally, the addition of the BE may help.
I am losing one or two bottom leaves per day which at this stage is a lot better than previous grows but I’m wondering if BE may reduce that also. So all in all following the guide taking it slow and conservative with the nutes things are going very well.
People were talking about numbers and I find I get about 27% dried cured bud compared to wet bud when it is harvested. Also, only making suggestions but jars drove me crazy trying to dry and cured bud because the neck is narrow which makes the stuff a pain to get in and out and it’s hard to air out a jar without taking everything out so for a while I have been putting about 5 ounces in big Tupperware like containers I bought at the dollar store for next to nothing. I can open up the lid and mix up all the bud so it dries evenly and then air it out by waving the lid over the container and then seal the lid all in about 30 seconds. And then I packed about 5 ounces into a big mason jar to put in the freezer for long-term storage at the end of curing.
Glad you are getting back to normal. Now only if life would sometime soon.
