    Cannabis business owners who lose their crops have little reprieve.

  3. First time grower needing help

    Hi everyone.

    This is my first grow and I'm failing miserably.

    I got my seeds from nirvana AK-48 Autofem.

    I started my plants in soil and they were growing good, I then transported them 2 weeks ago to a hydroponic system which is where things took a turn for the bad.

    One went completely limp so I put it back to soil to try and save it, the other seems to still be healthy but hasn't grow at all since the move.

    Does anyone ...

    You'll want to decide if EVOO or Coconut oil will serve you better for caps. You can start researching which oil will serve your needs better. I haven't tried coconut oil but it's on my list, but Toasty has. You'll also want to try Lecithin which is a natural binder for your liquid in caps. You can get all your supplies on am*zon too, easy. So it's all good, I'm here if you need me.

  8. PhatTommy LOVES 420Magazine - "Knowledge is Power"

    As I anxiously wait my computer to boot up, I wonder why I get such a kick out of 420 MAGAZINE. I feel like a 10 year old awaiting the current issue of BOY'S LIFE! Just knowing that I am witnessing "history in-the-making" (an amazing feat for a Vietnam-era stoner, believe me). I enjoy reading of state, national, and global news, whether political, business, or user targeted. I am most interested in the Patient/Medicinal information.

  10. My First Grow Op


    Finally!!!!
    After years of procrastinating a first time grow op, I’ve successfully started one.
    It all started with a bag of ganj a friend hooked me up with. He was always reliable and always had new, potent strains whenever I saw him. Which is never a bad thing! He had set me up with a handful of statins within a short period of time. Strawberry cough, train wreck, skywalker og, cloudfoot, and I believe jack flash.
    I was always stoked to get hooked up.

  11. Why Recreational Weed In California Could Cost More

But it could be hard enough for old-school growers and producers to jump through new regulatory hoops that supply won't match demand.
