    clone to clone to full grown plant 2017-2018

    It is the best looking, it also has the full main branch intact, the others had the main branch cut for clones. But TRC-1 still has female flower starts where the others are showing leafs indicating they are reverting to veg. They should all start to take off the next weeks, had some good weather, no 100 + temps yet... Thanks for the comment.... Peace..

    Being mostly an outdoor grower, I don't know about the newer LED lights. Sounds like you are doing as you are supposed to... It's good that you just want to take from seed to harvest. I've seen some new growers thinking they are going to get pounds per plant with a minimal setup... The good growers go by grams per watt.. So knowing your expectations is a good place to start and why I asked the question.. Lab and Shadey will lead you in the right direction. As per your watering schedule, I water about every 3 rd day and my temps reach 110+ outdoors. So watering that often will make many question that you aren't flooding your roots out... 4 weeks is a long time to start to show flowers, heck from pollination to seed takes 4-6 weeks... Like Lab said put up some pics like the saying goes a pic is worth 1000 words.... Peace..

    Apologies for the confusion. Royal Seed bank is not a breeder but a seed bank price comparison. The site contains reputable breeders with the benefit of knowing which has the lower price compared to others. Royal Seed bank suggest's the best price of a specific strain from every breeder/supplier listed. 😀

    i like vancouver seed bank . good strains ,prices and service . would buy from again .ive also used hemp depot and had good luck. would buy from them again. true north seed bank i had problems with low germ rate and they didnt want to talk to me at all. said they weren't allowed to talk about it. i whined and finally got a pack of critical white widow out of them , would not go back. lve also tried crop king service was great, but had problems with the cotton candy auto as it refused to flower even when a non-auto would've . ive had other seeds from them that worked fine and they replaced the cc seeds right away as they realized they had a problem with them. would buy from them again.

    Yeh, run both veg and flower it will help stop them stretching to much. I am surprised you are only just seeing signs of flowering at 4 and a half weeks, normally it would be 2-3 weeks for flowers to be very obvious. Watering six times a day is a bit much depending on how much water you are giving them and the size of the pots. The LED lights don't give off much heat so they wont be drinking much. I have plants under about the equivalent of about 1400 w of LED at 3ft tall and they only use about 1.5 - 2 liters each a week atm, and they get it once a week. With a 150W light, they probably wont be growing fast enough to use a lot of water even if your humidity is really low. Do you monitor your RH and temperatures in the closet? I would also lower the light to about 12 inches I run mine between 6-8 inches above my plants If you only have 1 plant its not going to have a big footprint to cover. If it makes you feel any better my wife is always complaining I pay more attention to my plants than her LOL.
  14. Canada plans to legalize weed – but will those convicted of crimes get amnesty? Activists argue that without amnesty, many from marginalized communities will continue to feel the effects of outdated laws Leyland Cecco in Toronto Tue 8 May 2018 People smoking marijuana during a 420 event in Toronto, as legalization of cannabis approaches this summer. Photograph: Arindam Banerjee/Rex/Shutterstock As Canada prepares to legalize marijuana this summer, politicians are facing growing calls to grant a blanket amnesty for people convicted under the existing drug laws – many of whom belong to marginalized groups. Since the prime minister, Justin Trudeau, was elected in 2015 on a manifesto promise to legalize cannabis, more than 15,000 people have been charged over marijuana-related offences – joining close to 500,000 Canadians with marijuana convictions on their criminal record. Activists argue that without an amnesty, hundreds of thousands of people will continue to feel the effects of outdated laws whose enforcement has had a disproportionate impact on racial minorities and the poor. Last week, the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty launched a petition asking the government to consider pardons for possession charges. The group hopes to gain at least 5,000 signatures by the end of May. Canadian marijuana advocate blasts ‘hypocrisy’ of ex-police cashing in on cannabis Annamaria Enenajor, a Toronto-based lawyer and director of the campaign, said the sprawling legislation tabled by the government makes no mention of existing marijuana convictions, which can have long-lasting effects. A possession charge can show up in job applications and can affect approval for government housing, volunteer opportunities or scholarships, said Enenajor. “The criminalization of cannabis is so drastic and disproportionate to people’s lives.” Meanwhile, numerous studies have shown that Canada’s current statutes on drug possession are not equitably applied. “Drug laws are enforced by the police – and we know that the police are not immune from racism and discrimination,” said Akwasi Owusu-Bempah of the University of Toronto. Robyn Maynard, author of Policing Black Lives, said: “White and black communities use cannabis and other drugs at similar rates, but black communities have been disproportionately targeted for police stops, cannabis arrests and incarceration.” The discrimination manifests in pre-trial detention and sentencing disparities: in Canada, the black community is incarcerated at a rate three times higher than the general population, she said. Trudeau has himself admitted to smoking marijuana as a sitting MP, and last year admitted that family resources and connections helped his younger brother, Michel, avoid a marijuana possession charge. Justin Trudeau was elected in 2015 on a manifesto promise to legalize cannabis. Photograph: Chris Wattie/Reuters In January, the public safety minister, Ralph Goodale, said the government was “weighing all the legal implications” of a pardon. But there remains a significant logistical hurdle in implementing any blanket amnesty. The database system used by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police does not always indicate the drug seized during an arrest. In order to expunge a felony or misdemeanour record, officers would have to manually scour the database to determine the specifics of the drug offence and then vacate the conviction if it fell under the new laws. Canadians currently have the option of petitioning the government to have the charges dropped, but must pay a fee of $600 and wait five years – a system which critics argue continues to penalize marginalized groups. Justin Trudeau: father's influence made my brother's marijuana charge 'go away' Advocates for an amnesty in Canada point to swift moves by state governments in the United States following legalization as a useful model. In the weeks following the legalization of cannabis in California, San Francisco’s district attorney expunged thousands of felony convictions related to cannabis possession. Cities such as Seattle and San Diego have also moved to clear away records of marijuana possession. Owusu-Bempah said that in addition to blanket pardons, a handful of US cities have directed the increased tax revenues to communities hardest hit by previous laws – a model he believes could also benefit communities in Canada. Currently, people with criminal records are unable to work in the burgeoning cannabis industry, a policy that hits heavily policed communities especially hard, said Maynard and Owusu-Bempah. “It’s one thing to expunge someone’s criminal record,” said Owusu-Bempah. “It’s much more useful to try and mend the very real problems caused by drug prohibition.” https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/may/07/canada-marijuana-cannabis-legalization-amnesty-drug-laws

    All the stuff I've read about those lights is to run both veg and flower when flowering. Even when vegging for more light. It all goes to growing the plant. My HID flowering lights have a decent amount of blue light to go with the red and that is good for the plants. Should try to get a picture or two up Siky.

    The light has 2 switches 1 for veg the other flower. The maker recommends both on during flower 12/12. As far as the grow, . just take from seed to flower and harvest. No great expectations . Why is that to much????????

    Sounds like you should have changed the light to flower when you put them on 12/12. I was curious on the feeding schedule too... What are you expecting out of this grow/

    LED light burn?

    Yes they will smell, not so much in vege but as soon as they go into flower it will get very stinky, so if you are illegal in an apartment that will probably get you caught once they go into flower. You can get a extraction fan and carbon filter which will neutralize the smell to about 95%, mine never manages to keep it %100 odor free. If you only have a small space then use smaller pots and have smaller plants. A 5 gal pot will give you a 4-5 ft plant in flower, after they stretch, if you flower at say 1 meter. You could drop down to 10 liter pots you could grow 2-3 ft plants but you will need to water them more often. Remember you will have the soil in the original pot the plant is in. All you are doing is adding more soil around the plant in the bigger pot. For a scrog that would be good with three plants if you start the training at 46cm height and fill a net 60cm square. I don't know what the weather is like there, but when its hot they smell more. Safety first I think, dont put yourself at risk of a prison sentence, wait until you have the right equipment to do it properly and reduce the smell. An apartment is not a good choice for a grow unless you know the other residents wont call the police. Then you have to find a way to vent the exhaust air outside if possible.

    High Siky and welcome to CC! It's normal for buds to start showing less fingered leaves and it'll likely have single ones before it's done. Hopefully your light is on a timer and it's pitch dark in there when it's lights out. At 4 and a half weeks they should have decent sized buds on them by now. Are you only using the bloom portion of the nutes? Should be using some Micro too but can skip the Grow bottle during flower as excess N inhibits bud growth. What are you growing in that needs timed feedings? I grow in pots of soilless and water fully every few days when the pots get really light. If you need some grow info download some of these. I found a great spot to download FREE POT BOOKS. I downloaded a grow bible first and got lots more. Books look great and complete like the real ones I have here. No web site but just a page of links. Just right click on what you want and then "Save Link As" to download so they don't open first as some are 50+ megs. They got lots. Enjoy.

    First time growing.I have a very small grow space 22"x 15". I am growing Bobble Gum (northern lights/bubble gum) and my plant is 4 1/2 weeks into flowering and I am starting to see signs of flowering, finally. I noticed that new leaves only have 3 fingers down from 9/7, is this normal?? My light is an Advanced Led 150 watt and I am using advanced nutrients bloom with some hydrogaurd for root health. Keeping light 18" from top of plant. Also wondering if turning veg portion of light off and just using the bloom phase of light (red) what would happen. I am also watering 6x daily for 5 min. each time. Any comments would help this 67 year old sleep better, I think about this more than my wife and that's not going over to well. THANKS IN ADVANCE, SIKY

    LED light burn?

    5 gal = 18.9L. I only I only have 10L left, but i will buy another 50L bag. I think it's enough for 3 plants. Should i add to soil vermiculite or perlite? I don't have a already a space prepared. At this moment i use a small wardrobe tent. But i need to prepare it because i grow them in an apartment.. I need to buy a good tent and carbon filter. I hope I'm not caught by the police or neighbors.. because in Romania you can make 2 up to 7 years of jail.. I don't have already bigger pots. Maybe when they grow up i will buy more lights. Now i'm in doubt about location, i think it's not so safe when plants starts to smell. Thanks!
  22. Where is amnesty in the federal government's plan to legalize cannabis? Toronto lawyer Annamaria Enenajor has launched a campaign urging the government to "right history's wrongs" by expunging personal possession charges by Amanda Siebert May 17th, 2018 Getty Images Last week, two international media outlets published articles about the notable absence of amnesty in the Canadian government's plan to legalize cannabis. “Canada plans to legalize weed – but will those convicted of crimes get amnesty?” asked The Guardian. Al Jazeera posed a similar question in its headline: “Can Canada undo ‘injustice’ of cannabis possession convictions?” While it’s a topic that the Liberal government has carefully tiptoed around since Justin Trudeau first made the promise of legal cannabis in 2015, it’s one Toronto lawyer Annamaria Enenajor is determined to bring to the forefront of the nation’s discourse on legalization. The criminal and regulatory lawyer and member of the legislative committee of the Criminal Lawyers Association of Ontario said after taking a “deep dive” into Bill C-45, she was taken aback by its lack of forethought in one area in particular. “One thing that stood out to me about this legislation is that there is a complete absence of any mention of the horrific and disproportionate impact that the criminalization of cannabis has had on Canadians in marginalized communities, particularly African Canadians, low-income individuals, and young people,” Enenajor told the Straight by phone. Since The Cannabis Act was tabled, Enenajor has been speaking about amnesty at conferences and events, and was approached in the fall of 2017 by a group of individuals who were interested in rallying behind her message. It was then that she decided to create a campaign to make amnesty “a central issue” to legalization. “I was disappointed that the Liberal government seemed to be dragging their heels on the question of pardons and were very non-committal about this,” she said. “Rectifying the harms that have been done by the criminalization of cannabis is central to this legislation, and yet it’s nowhere to be found.” In creating the campaign Cannabis Amnesty, Enenajor has endeavoured to communicate to Canadians that the forthcoming legislation will leave behind thousands if not tens of thousands of individuals who have trouble obtaining jobs, crossing the border, and maintaining a decent quality of life because of a simple pot possession charge. (The campaign seeks amnesty for those convicted of personal possession.) “The impetus for the legalization of cannabis, the reason that we’re here and that we’re having this discussion, is because we all realize that criminalization is doing more harm than good,” she said. “It doesn’t make sense to continue the same strategy that we’ve been using, that we’ve recognized has failed—it doesn’t make sense to plow forward into the future without trying to fix our failure, and overcriminalization is our failure.” Akwasi Owusu-Bempah is a criminologist, assistant professor at the University of Toronto, and a Broadbent Institute fellow studying the intersections of race, justice, policing, and drug policy. He supports Enenajor’s campaign for amnesty and told the Straight that legalization without amnesty would be unjust—but not a surprise given Bill Blair’s haste to say pardons were “off the table” when he was first asked about amnesty back in 2016. Referencing a VICE News investigation published in April, Owusu-Bempah said there is now substantial data that shows that black and Indigenous populations have been disproportionately arrested for cannabis offences, “literally from coast to coast.” “Previously we had anecdotal data, or we had findings from the Toronto Star that said black people were more likely to be charged,” he said. “Now we can see that from Vancouver to Halifax, it has been black and Indigenous people that have been disproportionately harmed.” And those harms are not to be taken lightly: Simple possession charges can create barriers that limit a person’s access to everything from employment to travel and in some jurisdictions, even social housing. Enenajor said it’s not unthinkable that people who have a simple possession charge on their record often get sucked into the system, and end up engaging in more criminal activity. “The reason for that is because what a criminal record does is it closes opportunities for legitimate gainful employment,” she said. “This is a huge barrier because we know that people in marginalized communities have fewer opportunities for meaningful employment to begin with.” She added that with the stigma around cannabis so high in the United States, a possession charge makes it impossible to cross the border. Illustrating this point, she recalled the testimony of a cross-border lawyer at a Senate panel last month, who told senators he had clients with possession charges turned away at the border consistently, but others convicted of manslaughter who were allowed entry. When asked what sort of approach the federal government could take to rectify the issue of historical overcriminalization in Canada, both Enenajor and Owusu-Bempah pointed to cities like San Francisco, Oakland, and Seattle, where individuals who have been most harmed by prohibition are actually able to reap the benefits of participating in the industry. “To remove the stigma attached to cannabis and through the process of legalization, these cities have actually created a space to use that legislation for a purpose of redressing these historical wrongs that were inflicted on vulnerable communities,” Enenajor said. “[In Oakland,] they did so by making sure half of the licences for the production of legal cannabis were allotted to what they would call ‘equity applicants’, people that have cannabis convictions or come from neighbourhoods that have been overpoliced for cannabis.” What Bill C-45 does instead, she said, is amplify the exclusion of those with criminal records by prohibiting them from participating in the legal economy. “What you’ve got is an activity that a very large amount of the Canadian population has admitted to doing, including the person who holds the highest office in the country—Trudeau,” said Owusu-Bempah. “But if you’ve done certain other things with the plant, you won’t be able to work for a company in the legal industry. That’s really hypocritical, and it adds insult to injury in many ways, especially given the high number of former law enforcement involved in the industry.” If there’s one Canadian cannabis activist who has been vocal about the issue of amnesty and the hypocrisy of former law enforcement profiting from a substance they once villainized, it’s Jodie Emery. Emery is also lending her support to Enenajor’s campaign, and predicts a groundswell of support from Canadians, “because everyone knows someone who smokes pot or possesses it”. She called it “an easy sell” given the vast majority of cannabis-related offenses are for possession alone. “The whole message of amnesty or an apology or forgiveness of any kind gets thrown to the wayside because it doesn’t fit the Liberal legalization talking points,” she said. “On one hand Bill Blair says it’s one of the great injustices of this country, the disproportionate enforcement of marijuana laws and the way it harms marginalized communities—but he and Trudeau continue to say that law enforcement must enforce the law, that people engaged with cannabis are still criminals and should be charged.” Despite the mixed messages, she predicts Trudeau will “dangle the carrot” of amnesty for those charged with possession in his campaign for a second term as prime minister. Beyond the issue of amnesty, Enenajor and Owusu-Bempah both expressed that they did not expect the practices of law enforcement that result in disproportionate arrests among people of colour to slow under Bill C-45. “The policing practices that have created these racial and other disparities aren’t going to be eliminated just because cannabis has been legalized,” said Owusu-Bempah, noting that while arrests for possession have generally gone down, in some areas, racial disparities among arrests have increased. Enenajor hopes that by spearheading the campaign for cannabis amnesty with the support of people like Jodie Emery, Ian Campeau, and others, Canadians will let the government know that amnesty is a crucial piece to legalization by signing the Cannabis Amnesty petition. “These are people who don’t have a voice at the legislative table, who don’t have organizations that represent them aggressively, who don’t have lobbying power in Ottawa, and it’s very easy to largely ignore them because they are on the periphery of society,” she said. “If we don’t address it head on in C-45, we’re just amplifying the marginalization, because we’re allowing members of society who have been in many instances at the forefront of prosecuting and arresting these individuals to make obscene amounts of profit from this market.” https://www.straight.com/cannabis/1075391/where-amnesty-federal-governments-plan-legalize-cannabis

    Medical Marijuana Update

    Medical Marijuana Update by psmith, May 16, 2018 Medical marijuana could expand in Louisiana and New Jersey, CBD cannabis oil gets regulated in Michigan, and more. Louisiana Last Wednesday, the Senate approved adding qualifying conditions for medical marijuana. The Senate voted 25-9 to approve House Bill 579, which adds glaucoma, severe muscle spasms, intractable pain, PTSD, and Parkinson's Disease to the state's list of qualifying conditions for the use of medical marijuana. It also voted 21-10 to approve House Bill 627, which adds autism spectrum disorders to the list. The bills have already passed the House, but must be approved there again after changes were made in the Senate. Michigan Last Thursday, the state announced it will regulate CBD cannabis oil as marijuana. State regulators announced that CBD cannabis oil products will be covered by the state's medical marijuana laws. The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs declared that state law allows for the use of CBD cannabis oil -- if it comes from marijuana plants, not hemp plants. "We received lots of questions about if CBD was going to be regulated along with marijuana and how hemp plays into that," said department spokesman David Harns. "Now is the right time to send out an advisory bulletin." New Jersey On Tuesday, a bill was filed to expand the state's medical marijuana system. Responding to Gov. Phil Murphy's (D) call to reform the state's medical marijuana program, a trio of state senators has filed a bill that would allow more dispensaries and grows to open, as well as permitting more medical professionals to recommend the drug to their patients. The bill, Senate Bill 10, is not yet available on the legislative web site. Pennsylvania On Monday, the governor approved university research on medical marijuana. Gov. Tom Wolf (D) has given the go-ahead for eight universities in the state to start studying medical marijuana. It would be the commonwealth's "first step towards clinical research" on the drug. He formally declared them to be "Certified Academic Clinical Research Centers." Utah Last Friday, the Mormon Church ups the ante in fight against medical marijuana initiative. The church last Friday doubled down on its opposition to the medical marijuana initiative set for the November ballot. The church released a seven-page memorandum raising dozens of complaints it says "raises grave concerns about this initiative and the serious adverse consequences that could follow if it were adopted."

    PotHead or Anti-PotHead what are you

    When growing Pot is legal: Towns and Cities will be vying for the "Pot Hall of Fame Fest" for the provinces and territories and country... Just like the Amazon HQ2 frenzy... but longer lasting and more important. During the Fest; They will have to offer "Home Free Zones" just like the duty-free for liquor These Home Free zones will have: No cops, No taxes, lots of PotHeads exchanging and buying FREELY Let the nominations begin. I nominate Osoyoos BC for the provincial If I get elected as Mayor there will be a Home Free Zone.
  25. Hi Klement and welcome to CC. High CBD, from what I have read helps speed up broken bone healing. as that has very little it probably wont. You need to take it orally as well not smoke it. Smoking wastes %80 of the product. I would suggest taking a vitamin D3 5000 IU tablet and some Vit K2 to help with the absorption. K2 also helps your body move calcium to bones and teeth and stops it floating round in your blood steam blocking up your arteries. Dont drink milk either, milk actually robs calcium from your bones and teeth despite what the milk adverts tell you. Get your calcium from green leafy foods, Cannabis leaves have lots of great easily absorbed calcium in them
  26. Basically wondering does medicinal marijuana like this https://www.bonzaseeds.com/blog/phantom-cookies/ affect the healing process of broken bones? Background: So I broke my right ankle at the bottom of my tibia and tore the ligaments in both. (Racing Supercross). I was in a cast on the right for 5 weeks now with more x-rays still broken but doctor gave me a walking cast (instead of regular cast) for an additional 4. I have been smoking rather often to help with pain (in beginning) and now b/c I'm so bored and have nothing else to do. But I'm beginning to think maybe it's hurting me in the long run. I did some research and found that cigarette smoking affects you greatly in the healing time of your broken bones. But what about marijuana smoke?
  27. Shadey

    I got fried after 3 hits

    Just cut down the amount you smoked, cannabis can bring repressed emotions and anxiety up to the surface quickly, when you are not used to it. I also find drinking orange juice will bring down a heavy buzz, I think vitamin C is the reason it knocks down the THC.
  28. I've been saying this. They can't see the forest for the trees. Instead of (some) politicians trying to increase the price on cannabis however they can they should be instead concentrating on how to benefit from the spin off jobs. The nute companies, the cannabis testing companies, the machines to mass produce edibles, machines to process hemp, even drug impairment testing. Basically it benefits nobody for them to target a minority for taxation when they should be instead concentrating on the spin off opportunities. In one case they leave money in that minorities pocket whom will use it to buy more products, like a portable vape, or local take out, while doing everything they can to benefit from the spin off jobs being created all around... And the other they tax the minority and create a few spin off jobs with the taxes. The first benefits all in Canada, and the second only a few while hurting some more through the process. Or to put it another way you cannot create, or benefit, from innovation if it comes at the expense of others. At least in my humble opinion.
