    Dry fresh bud, quick.

    Salts are not organic. Organic fertilizer is an oxymoron.

    “I won't use a microwave for anything other than heating water. Totally screws up food and destroys most of the nutritional content.” Labrat Links to peer reviewed research, please. Here’s the wiki. “Any form of cooking will destroy some nutrients in food, but the key variables are how much water is used in the cooking, how long the food is cooked, and at what temperature.[35] Nutrients are primarily lost by leaching into cooking water, which tends to make microwave cooking healthier, given the shorter cooking times it requires.[36] Like other heating methods, microwaving converts vitamin B12 from an active to inactive form; the amount of conversion depends on the temperature reached, as well as the cooking time. Boiled food reaches a maximum of 100 °C (212 °F) (the boiling point of water), whereas microwaved food can get locally hotter than this, leading to faster breakdown of vitamin B12. The higher rate of loss is partially offset by the shorter cooking times required.[37] Spinach retains nearly all its folate when cooked in a microwave; in comparison, it loses about 77% when boiled, leaching out nutrients. Bacon cooked by microwave has significantly lower levels of carcinogenic nitrosamines than conventionally cooked bacon.[35]Steamed vegetables tend to maintain more nutrients when microwaved than when cooked on a stovetop.[35]Microwave blanching is 3–4 times more effective than boiled water blanching in the retaining of the water-soluble vitamins folic acid, thiamin and riboflavin, with the exception of ascorbic acid, of which 28.8% is lost (vs. 16% with boiled water blanching).[38] Microwaving human milk at high temperatures is not recommended as it causes a marked decrease in activity of anti-infective factors.[39]”

    I had issues with fires starting at the floret/stem junction on earlier attempts. But I..... - reduced time - avoided centre of microwave - try not to grow stressed weeds
  4. So if I need to sample a freshly harvested bud? I usually take a smallish bud, 2 or 3 joints worth and put it between at least 4 paper towels. Pop that in the microwave for 23 seconds. Give it a minute to cool, move the bud to a dry spot on the towels and give it another 23 seconds.... let it cool, move to a dry spot another 23 seconds. It might be ready to smoke now it might need another 23 seconds. Notes: My microwave is a low power unit. It feels wet still when it comes out after the 3rd or 4th time, let it cool and get hard before making the call to smoke or re-nuke. Avoid the centre of the microwave and keep your shit on the outside perimeter or fires can happen.

    Bud boosters are dirty

    The appalling thing to me is the ingredients are not listed. Fuckers. From the High Times article. “The two compounds of concern in the cannabis world are paclobutrazol and daminozide. These chemicals were found as unlisted, unregistered ingredients in the following cannabis fertilizers: Bushmaster, Gravity, Flower Dragon, TopLoad, PhosphoLoad and BushLoad. Most of these fertilizers have been banned in California mainly due to the fact that the PGR’s were not listed in the bottle, a requirement by law.”

    Unknown outdoor strains Alberta

    At the end of July start covering them to give them at least 12 hours of darkness. Do this for a week, once flowering has started you can stop covering them and they will keep on flowering.
  9. Havent tried it yet but looks promising. https://cannapedia.me/Citric+Acid+Extraction
  10. In Canada it seems to be ok.
  11. I just applied for my PAL and I'm medical.
  12. I was reading about Poloz buying guns in Vegas and that's what the article said.
