    Shadey, My trics are clear to milky still, I'm thinking at least 3-4 weeks before I have 50% amber. Some might not go that long but that's what my experience tells me. End of Oct to mid Nov. for me is the normal harvest time... Hope yours gets nice and fat in your room, I'd let it go a couple weeks to see if the flowers fatten up. The last 2 weeks are critical as the flowers get a ton fatter during that time.

    My BAD! I was in such a hurry to get to Toke Fest, I forgot to mention HOW you know where your temperature and humidity levels are: with a thermometer and a barometer! If you’re just starting out, check these daily. When you get enough experience under your belt, you’ll only need to check these instruments once a week because your plants will just tell you how you’re treating them: If they’re looking good, you’re treating ‘em RIGHT! So many newbies mistake OFF temperatures and humidity for nutrient/watering problems or soil problems and they don’t even check their instruments first. Nine times out of ten, if your plants start to look like hell and they’re in trouble, YOU put them there! A good thing to do to force yourself to keep track every day is to keep a journal in your grow room where you write down your daily records. I do it on scrap paper or your can do it on your phone or computer, but do it!

  6. Will legalization change social norms around marijuana? How will legal pot change our culture? Should pot smokers be allowed to light up at work? What about walking down a busy sidewalk, or sitting in an apartment? CTV Vancouver Published Friday, September 21, 2018 From a 1930s propaganda film calling it "the burning weed with its roots in hell" to massive companies such as Coca Cola and Molson now looking to cash in on the emerging marijuana market, attitudes towards the drug have shifted dramatically over the past century. Those social norms are soon likely to change again as Canada prepares to become the second in the world to legalize recreational pot use next month. "We need to have the discussion about how are we going to influence our society, not with the law and with administrative controls, but with our social norms," Mark Haden, a population professor at the University of British Columbia told CTV News as part of the "Going Green" series. A woman smokes marijuana in Vancouver in this undated image. "We need to find a way that integrates cannabis while minimizing the harms for us." Pot use in public Even though pot won't be legal until Oct. 17, there are already more dispensaries than Tim Hortons restaurants in Vancouver, but that doesn’t mean we're ready to accept open use. "When you're walking downtown, you can smell it everywhere," one woman told CTV. For now, laws will limit public marijuana use to accepted tobacco smoking areas, but will walking down the street with a joint ever be socially acceptable? "We need to develop social norms around cannabis use (which) we haven't done yet. You don't walk down the street holding a beer. That is our social norm—unacceptable behaviour," Haden said. "Public use will be frowned upon, should be frowned upon, but maybe you want to have some special areas such as beaches, concerts—so some outdoor use. Some public use is acceptable." And with tight quarters in stratas, don't be surprised if residential smoking bylaws are strictly enforced. Experts say that could lead to legislated exceptions such as Amsterdam-style coffee shops that allow marijuana use. "There should be clubs where people can go to smoke it in facilities like cannabis use clubs, not that dissimilar from bars," Haden said. "You want to separate them out. You don't want cannabis use with alcohol." Weed in the workplace Most us wouldn't drink alcohol on the job, but will the same expectations apply when it comes to pot? "It's definitely something employers are concerned about," employment lawyer Hilary Henley told CTV. "I think in some ways, it will be quite similar to alcohol." But employers' concerns could extend beyond what happens during work hours. "It depends what the concern of the employer is," Henley said. "If someone is talking about being a big fan of cannabis, an employer might be entitled to say, 'We're a conservative business and we have codes of conduct and your public social media is bringing a shroud of disrepute that could be an issue.' "It's all about image and employers are always going to be looking to protect their image." Some, however, say that once marijuana is legal, their bosses shouldn't have a say on their consumption. "If my boss has a problem, I wouldn't want to work for someone like that," one man told CTV. Ganga-tainment goes mainstream Personal consumption aside, it seems likely that virtually all Canadians will be exposed to media and entertainment that normalizes marijuana use. Netflix's "Cooking on High," for example, is being billed as "the first-even competitive cannabis cooking show." And with companies such as Molson and Coca Cola looking to get into the soon-to-be-legal pot industry, TV and internet ads promoting cannabis products could soon be on their way too. Haden said it's important to balance such commercialization with a public health approach that emphasizes safe, responsible use of the drug. "I hope it isn't totally dominated by the commercial voice. I hope it isn't big money that comes in and moves and takes over," he said. "I really hope the voice of public health is heard here, and the voice of public health is all about regulation and control and understanding how social norms do influence behaviour and how… we influence those is really the question we need to ask." https://bc.ctvnews.ca/will-legalization-change-social-norms-around-marijuana-1.4104653 With files from CTV Vancouver's Penny Daflos
  7. Federal government to comb social media for Canadian’s behaviour, attitudes toward marijuana Andy Blatchford The Canadian Press Published September 21, 2018 OTTAWA The federal government is looking to scour social-media platforms to find out what Canadians really think about pot as the country enters its new era of legalized weed. With only a few weeks to go before the end of recreational marijuana prohibition, Ottawa is seeking an outside contractor to help the government learn more about Canadians’ attitudes and behaviours when it comes to legalized cannabis. Federal officials want to go deeper than the data they have gleaned from public opinion surveys. The Liberals vowed to legalize recreational cannabis in their 2015 election platform as a way to take black-market profits away from criminals, including organized crime. But weed’s legalization on Oct. 17 will thrust the country into unknown territory on many levels – from policing, to health, to public awareness. The government is still in an information-gathering mode. A new government tendering notice posted this week describes a project that will collect marijuana-related information on Canadians – from how often and where people light up, to what type of buds users prefer, to criminal activities. For example, the government hopes the effort will help it design communications strategies to address specific public safety risks, such as driving while high. “Overall, this research intends to inform policies surrounding public safety issues that accompany cannabis legalization,” reads the notice, which was posted Wednesday. “Exploring public perceptions of cannabis use and related behaviours is key to developing a better understanding of how best to communicate to the general public about the risk of use and engaging in certain behaviours.” The winning bidder will use algorithms to sift through and extract data from social-media sources, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In the process, the government also wants the contractor to capture and explore corresponding individual-level data, including details on the age, sex and location – such as the province or territory – of the social-media users. The document, posted by Public Safety Canada, calls the approach a form of sentiment analysis – or “opinion mining.” “Social media data is arguably more unconstrained and rich in detail than self-report survey data,” the notice said. “When complemented by self-report survey data, social media data can provide policy-makers with a more complete picture of how the public perceives cannabis use and related behaviours in the current pre-legalization context.” It also noted that self-report surveys can generate a wealth of information about citizens’ attitudes and behaviours related to marijuana. However, it pointed out that these surveys are susceptible to a number of biases – such as the closed-ended nature of questions – that can affect the quality of the data. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/cannabis/article-federal-government-to-comb-social-media-for-canadians-behaviour

    Yes they are stacking nicely. My one outside plant has done the same, but the buds did not develop to well, they look to be around where yours are now. I have put it inside in my flower room yesterday due to the weather here. I am hoping a couple more weeks will improve their size, but the trichs say they are pretty much ready. Indoor plants got harvested they did really well.
  9. Cannabis-infused oil is probably the most versatile medium and a great place to start, since it can be used for baking desserts, sautéing veggies, frying up your morning eggs, or in your salad dressing. In addition, as is the case with cooking anything at home, you have complete control over its preparation. Does peanut oil hold a special place in your heart? Make cannabis-infused peanut oil!
  10. Mes salutations à tous, Ce soir la propagande s'avère léchée au point de ne plus en avoir l'air en apparence, car ce sont surtout les non-dits qui font tout le travail. Appréciez par vous-mêmes: YouTube: Jean-François Lisée, Manon Massé, François Legault et Philippe Couillard TLMEP Élections Québec 2018 (2018-Sep-23) YouTube: Paul Arcand prix Gémeaux pour ''Conversation secrète avec Guy Lafleur'' à TLMEP (2018-Sep-23) Moi j'appele ça de la "Juxtaposition propagandiste" et elle n'a rien de gratuit, quoiqu'il faille encore le prouver et c'est là que l'art des magiciens de l'information excelle, de toute évidence. Pourtant, alors qu'on ne remarque presque pas le lustré celui-ci finit par devenir criant à force de perfection... Car voyez-vous moi ça m'agresse genre "dans ta face", en tous les cas, de feindre la neutralité comme si rien n'avait d'abord été calculé - ça présente mal comme on dit, au risque de passer pour paranoïaque! Faut minimalement considérer, à une semaine des élections provinciales (...), que ce sont les province qui doivent assumer la plus lourde part de cette "Légaleezation" biaisée (Prohibition v2.0) à la Trudeau et dont on se serait au moins attendu qu'il en soit question, surtout en présence des 4 candidats sur les ondes le la télé nationale aux heures de grande écoute... Voilà pour moi un silence coupable, car on nous plonge dans un climat pré-électoral où le cannabis n'existe pas, comme si c'était une affaire réglée, puis pendant qu'on reste sur notre faim la transition nous transporte au monde des bigots prohibitionnistes anti-cannabiques, une fois de plus. Comme si ça allait de soi... Chose que j'ai bien du mal à qualifier en des termes civilisés. ... Sur ce bonne journée et au plaisir!! ☮️

    I’ll keep it short today. We gotta go into Bella Coola later today for a Toke Fest—its a private party for us local underground commercial growers—our special version of Oktoberfest! Not that this won’t be an important post for newbie growers... Most newbie growers I run into are hung up about lights and nutrients. Any good grow shop will sell decent lights and nutrients and recommend the best for your needs. And they’ll spend hours talking with you explaining and comparing everything they sell because that’s where all zee money is for them. What they won’t give you decent advice about is ironically zee most important thing you need to know about, and that’s AIR. Even these guys don’t know how important it is! Plus, there’s no big money in it for them unless they’ll selling big expensive vent systems in which case if you’re in zee market for one of these systems you already know what you’re doing. Zee reason AIR is so important to newbie growers and their plants is that most of you newbies are growing in tight confined spaces. Lights, no matter what kind, throw off a lot of heat and like zee sun outside, everything else is influenced by it—especially your *temperature *humidity and *ventilation. If you’re living in Canada, and a newbie grower, keep your in-door grows to zee 8 months from Nov-Apr and if you wanna grow in summer, grow outside because in-door grows are a lot easier to control when its cold outside. From grow tents to decent sized rooms like 10x10 feet, your lights are gonna heat up zee area. A simple vent system using cheap Walmart fans (including cheap bathroom exhaust fans) will control your temperature and humidity. An extra large bathroom vent fan mounted on zee ceiling of your grow can be your exhaust outside zee grow. Since your plants are pumping out oxygen as their waste gas, try to have your exhaust running into your regular living area. Another bathroom fan mounted on zee wall close to zee floor can suck cooler air with higher CO2 levels from your regular living area into your grow. Have it hitting your nute reservoir to keep your water 10 degrees cooler than your ambient grow temperatures which should be a steady 78-82°F If you keep zee temp to nice even 70°F outside your grow room, your bottom fan will bring in nice cooler air loaded with CO2 (your waste gas!) into your grow and it will rise naturally and touch zee bottom of your leaves which will breath in that nice fresh air and keep zee internal temperature of your plants cooler then zee ambient air. (Notice how this forum changed zee font? I didn't do it! Maybe its zee fucking government l0l) Since your plants breath out 80% of zee moisture they drink in from their roots, out into your grow room air, your grow room humidity levels will rise to 80-90% IF you don’t vent that air out through your ceiling exhaust fan. Using a top quality LED grow light like “Perfect Sun” or “Electric Sky” will burn cooler than standard MH and HPS lamps and help to keep your temps at a perfect 78-82°F whether you’re in Veg or Flower stage. And just as important, keep your relative grow room humidity perfect at 40 – 60% percent. Your ceiling exhaust fan should do zee trick! A large cheap oscillating fan on zee floor of your grow will allow zee bottom of your leaves to breath in zee perfect AIR you’ve created for them 24/7. How’s that for keeping zee most important part of your grow nice and SIMPLE? Now we’re off to TOKE FEST 2018! Have a great rest of your weekend!

    Actually, hemp is in favor as Senator Ernst says conference committee members have worked through other points of friction. " The main sticking point is whether to enforce new work requirements for Americans who receive government nutrition assistance — commonly referred to as “food stamps. ""

    LED light burn?

    Looks great Ueedlover, you done a good job of that, nice airflow spaces and still got a good canopy to provide growth. With your next grow, now you know what you are doing a bit more, you could start the scrog earlier and have it full all over the net. You could start the scrog a couple of weeks after topping them, when they are about 8 -10 inches tall, and have the net full 2-3 weeks quicker

    Nutrient Lockout

    Hi Girlw5huskies and welcome to CC. I have had nute lock out on my last 2 grows, not so bad on the last. To flush you just add water with a known PH until it starts to come out the bottom of the pot and then add some more. Collect that water in a clean container and check the PH. This should be around 6-6.5 PH if it is good. If not you will have to adjust your water to a higher or lower PH to bring the soil PH back in line. Dont feed again until the PH is normalized as as too much of something causes a lock out with something else being too much. What nutrients are you using? The water you are putting in should be between 6 and 6.5 with the nutrients you are adding. So check the PH after you have added the nutrients to the water. If its high PH down with something acidic I use Cal/Mag as its probably going to be needed and you rarely have too much. Or to Ph up I use potassium silicate again something that is hard to have too much of and very good for the plants.

    Cannabis Infused Peach Crisp Recipe.

    Yeh, I always use too much lol. The trouble is when things taste good, you are naturally going to have too much anyway. My current cookie recipe, which makes about 26 cookies, contains 10grms of 20% THC and 5 grms of 20% CBD weed. Although it makes 26 cookies most people just have half of one. Then the other half 2-3 hours later when they know what its like. In some cases just a quarter, when they are complete newbies to edibles. I also make hard lemonade with weed in, which is lethal I have one bottle left, I made it 5 years ago. There is one bottle left, as I am too scared to drink it LMAO. My first cakeI made with cannabis, had 6 ounces of weed in it. which had some, not so good, consequences from it lol. Here is a link if you ,want to read about it.

    Nutrient Lockout

    Hello, I am new to this forum and I did try to search to see how to resolve this issue I am having with our plants. We have grown a few plants this year, not the best looking or production as we are learning. So, this is our 3rd attempt and we decided to ditch the super soil we were using and simply add nutrients to the simple soil. Things were going well but then the plants stopped growing and they are not drinking. From looking online, we experiencing nutrient lockout. I am wondering if anyone knows how to do a flush properly. We have tested the PH of the water we are giving and it is fine according to our pen. I am just so frustrated with this, we always seem to start off great and them, bam, another hurdle. I would attach pictures but the lights are out at the moment. I can add it later today if that helps.
