Dana Larsen gave me free CBD seeds!!!

Recommended Posts

At the time when Dana was crossing Canada doing his free seed giveaway I wrote to Dana requesting free seeds for my medical disabilities. He was kind and gracious enough to send me 100 free seeds that are very high CBD. I now intend to grow them out. My Federal License allows me to do this under the guidelines I was given by the Federal Government. I've been unable to get seeds or clones through Aurora Cannabis ( who I'm also registered with) which is strange because the Federal Government says they are supposed to be doing this for me.The Government has all these strange Laws in place with the Police, the Post Office, Distributors etc. but they don't care about me? Many of the major distributors have ignored this and the politicians are hypocrites wasting taxpayer dollars by the hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to put someone in jail who is not selling the seeds but giving them away.

 I openly challenge The Calgary City Police and The RCMP to come and knock on my door and request the return of the CBD seeds. The Calgary CBD Seed Police, what a reputation to have. These law enforcement personnel are paid anywhere from 80 to 100 thousand a year to do this with my tax dollars? What a waste of time and money. Neo/Con Socialists at their worst behaviour. Oh ya, To Serve and Protect?

So, a big shout out to Dana for standing up against Police brutality and tyranny.

You forgot to supply your address so the CPS can find you. ;)

 

I'm not sure how much CBD you can expect from those seeds.  They're basically the same kind of hemp seeds that are used by Canadian hemp farmers.  Going to be some for sure but I doubt it's very high.  THC should be below 0.3% so it won't get a fly high.

 

The way our current gov't is setting things up the cops won't be laying anyone off for lack of targets.  They'll still be going after the low hanging fruit, (you and me), and may enforce the rules about acquiring your seeds, clones and pot from the Legal Producers as set up by Herr Harper.  Lots yet for them to do.

 

The LPs are lobbying hard to prevent home growing so don't want to sell their stolen genetic lines to customers who are supposed to get their "starting" materials from them.   Just another example of how the system works against patients getting the medicine they need.

 

In Quebec and Ont it will be illegal to order pot from out off province too so they want to force people there to buy whatever schwag they're selling.  There is a Supreme court case in NB I believe about a guy charged with bringing home cheaper beer from QC and it looks like it may go in his favour.  If so the ruling will prevent one province from preventing the import of alcohol from another province.  These same rules will pertain to pot and tobacco as well.  I just read the story about it yesterday but my browser crashed before I could bookmark the link.

 

I lived in Calgary from '76 - '82.  Drove cab most of that time and had lots of fun.  Calgary. Cow Town.  Where men are men and sheep are shy. ;)

 

Good luck with your grow!

One of the items in the legislative proposals is making room for what's called  "Microgrowers" I can see this being very lucrative to small growers who will supply a connoisseur's market.

A couple of guys that are top notch growers with a bit of money and the proper grow space could specialize in hard to grow breeds or special crosses that aren't big producers. Personally from the research that I'm doing there are numerous other elements of the Cannabis plant being discovered. Sure everyone knows about two very small items such as THC and CBD but that's a very small part of it.

I'm seeing the future as a small microgrower perhaps working in an area specializing in a certain strain for a bigger operator in order to also take part in research. The future you see is in applying certain light frequencies along with different types of soils enriched with various combinations of beneficial bacteria and fungi in order to produce or bring out more of a certain element they are looking for in order to produce a more specialized product.

L.E.D.'s are where the future lies in being able to finely adjust the light frequencies.

I've already taken the "bugs" to extreme levels, not just with NPK Nutrients line. Combined with Spectrum King L.E.D.'s the trichome production is literally off the scale and the electricity cost is low.

Believe me, BubbleMan's hash screens are being used a lot. Trichomes are where it's at.

One example of what I do to get my bugs is taking a piece of cheesecloth or a woman's nylon, stuffing it with a plain rice and bug formula along with my compost mixture. I set it in the top of the compost bin for a couple of days inside a garbage bag to heat it up a little. I take my folding shovel to an old growth forest near the Bow River where the most easterly breeds of Douglas Fir still survive. Being careful not to hurt the old growth tree, I dig a hole close by it, place my sock in it and wet with rain water. Replacing the soil, I come back in about three or four weeks. The colours are amazing, sometimes even blue and yellow. The stink is incredible. I've acquired the bugs from the old growth tree who inoculated my mixture.

Being retired I've got lots of time but I just might be interested in this Microgrower category if I could find the right Company to work with eventually. 

An outdoor GreenHouse with Solar panels and some small wind turbines could be a good way to go as well. The right partners who are strictly organic Cannabis farmers is the key.

I have been thinking something similar, we were planing on moving more into the country with a bigger plot size but due to my accident we may have to move sooner and I like the sound of an organic micro grow, it will come down to the license cost for me really. I want to get off grid power wise as well, so looking for something with a river, for a water turbine as well as wind. You cant compete with the big growers doing the norm, you have to find a niche market. I see on lots of forums people reminiscing about the stuff they used to smoke way back when. The old strains that they find hard to get now, because everyone is into the super strong buzz, which is fine if thats what you are looking for. Its not the weed they really want its to the return to that period and re connect in there life with the way they felt when they were young. Those smells and tastes are the triggers for those memories, feelings and experiences.

what is your bug formula? I really like your idea its like a doctor who specialized in stomach flora and found rare types of stomach bacteria in remote tribes and went and inseminated himself with their feces, after about a month he was immune to local pathogens that normally trouble strangers. Is there a reason you use Douglas fir trees, other than they live long?

I'm totally into the concept of starting up a microgrow and get into the legal market.  Here in Alberta looks like a prime place to do that.

 

I got a few things to bring to the table as well.  Clean criminal record other than an old impaired conviction from '93.  Diploma in Environmental Chemistry, decades of small home growing and possibly 20 - 50G of seed money.  More if I sell the farm tho it could be used for starting up the grow with a large, heated shop that just needs serious spring cleaning to make it all for plants.  Seven and a half acres of land in the boonies but right on a highway with a house wired for light industrial.  Shop has 5 - 240V outlets and a dozen or more 120s.  17' x 37' x 10'h with a big roll-up door into a carport even bigger.  My current grow space is in the basement and with my planned expansion will be two rooms with a total of 70 sqft of grow space for moms, clones etc.  Got lots of nice genetics to play with as well.

 

Micro breweries and distilleries are doing great because of their unique offerings and I'm certain that the same can be done with pot.  I'd be willing to sell here and move back to Calgary as well if it looked good.  Still have lots of friends there and after 6 years of cab driving know my way around.  Jack-of-all-trades as well with lots of carpentry, welding, mechanical and machine shop experience under my belt.

 

I'm better at growing DWC than I am with dirt but AN has a line of organically derived hydro nutes that passes California's strict definition of organic so I'd like to try those.

 

Sure need something to do other than waste away in the frozen north all by myself. :)

Oh man I used to be so into the kind of life you are thinking of.  Nice chunk of land with a year round creek or small river to set up an undercurrent waterwheel for power, woods to get lots of free wood from and a healthy, natural lifestyle.  HUGE AMOUNT OF WORK!  Way more than I can do now.  I think I still have the digital version of Mother Earth News magazine for ten years somewhere and a box or two of the real mags from way back.  Lots of great ideas for country living off the grid in those.

 

Just getting permission to use a waterwheel takes a lot of dicking around with the local governments. 1)  They get money from the local electric company so don't want to piss them off and 2) Environmental testing can cost more than what you'll pay for being on the grid for the rest of your life.

 

It's well beyond time when our gov'ts should be encouraging people to go solar and feed excess power back to the grid like they do in many countries and states in the US.  Thanks to power companies lobbying and the power they have to sway gov't that isn't on the table in most jurisdictions in Canada yet but should be.

 

I can't keep up with regular chores around my place so the house is slowly falling into disrepair tho still very habitable it needs work.  Both my spouse and me being a bit of old hoarders doesn't help. :)

yes that is one of my concerns, since my accident I can still do most things, but it takes me 10 times longer, having to rest up and bring the pain back down to acceptable levels. I know a water wheel is a no no here, not allowed to change water flow. I wasn't planing on telling them though lol. I just have the kitchen here to renovate and our on suit bathroom as well, and its done. The other complication is that the wife works from home which allows us to move and keep her job but we need good Internet for that and unfortunately its not brilliant outside HRM unless you are in a large town. We met some people at a party about a month ago who have a small hobby farm 30 acres and we are going to look at what they have done and the area they are in maybe a good spot to be, the woman grows some very good weed as well outside. I have to make some money, we cant live on just my wife's earnings and my disability and the odd bit of airbrushing commission, if I get it and anything I may get from workers compensation. I am pretty much unemployable in my condition, as a slip or fall could cause catastrophic spinal cord injuries, the surgeon says I could be in a wheel chair in 5 years if I dont take it easy and stop working :(

Shadey, I didn't explain myself quite good enough which is my fault. I've gone through a number of videos on You Tube and done the same. Wherever I go in the summer such as out to Vancouver Island I'll pick up some old bark and stuff in the forest, close to the biggest trees while digging and rooting around a bit. It'll have the familiar white bugs on it . The basics for anyone though is to take cheap white rice or oatmeal, soak it and place in say newspapers. Place in a dark garbage bag. You can store bought bugs into this too. If it's hot, check on it daily, especially if it is inside a compost bin. This is the basic inoculation used to put in my compost. Mine is just tied up in the science of bringing in different bugs from different areas and from around different trees and forest floors. I found two families of them with NPK Nutrients. Harley's a biologist so that's good enough for me but I also use the cheaper ones too from the garden centre. The biggest point of this whole process is to combine composting, the worm operation and the potting method into our growing process. This is just me though. There are countless other methods of growing and I respect the work and growing methods of each person. My method isn't for everyone because I'm a retired ol' fart with tons of time. You Tube videos are like a gigantic encyclopedia. Anyone can research it and do better than me.  I just take the good ideas from the pros to try to make it work. Finally, when it comes to flushing, I do it a little but if you are not tempted to use synthetics it sure saves a lot of work. I never have to worry about chemical contamination or oil based fertilizers.

OK that sounds good, I too am keeping my grow totally organic, and I have watched Harley's Vids as well as others, I wont be flushing my grow other than normal watering, Not sure If I will need any teas towards the end anyway.

 

I just started with the worm composting, as I don want to have to spend 160 $ on soil again next spring. not sure I have enough worms though, I rescue them from the gravel track that runs along the hydro power lines after a heavy rain, when walking the dog. I picked up 27, 2 days ago and another 11 this morning. I have 2X 40 liter containers 3/4 full of old grow soil from earlier this year that has old roots and stems in. Have you ever tried growing in a pot without having removed the previous plants root system?
