    I've had a great following and I've been asked to continue posting about my adventure in the world of growing medical cannabis so this will be the place where I will post on this subject.

    The information below is provided to help answer any questions regarding indoor growing medical cannabis and vegetables.

    This is my current crop and I'll attach pictures a little later.

    1-T.K.O OG Kush

    This is a super sick cross of og funk. We took our wifi#3 og and crossed it to our dope dawgwaltz male.

    2-Bubblelicious

    Bubblelicious was developed in the Midwest, U.S.A., then brought to the Netherlands in the 1990s to be further refined. Its plants grow vigorously and finish flowering in about 9 to 11 weeks. Bubblelicious is highly resinous and extra sweet. Certain phenotypes will actually display a distinct pink bubblegum scent and flavour.

    Yield: 400 - 500 grams/m² (SoG)
    Grow height: Low
    Flowering Indoor: 9 / 11 weeks

    1-Master Kush
    First called High Rise, Master Kush was developed in one of the tall buildings in Amsterdam's Bijlmer area. Coffeeshop owners and regulars alike fell head over heels in love with this exclusive tetraploid strain. By popular demand, this Hindu Kush / Skunk hybrid was stabilized and marketed, and it has been a classic ever since. A strong plant of medium height and bushiness, Master Kush is a heavy producer which thrives in soil, hydro and greenhouse growing systems. Master Kush has a pleasantly earthy, mossy smell and its smoke is smooth.

    Yield: 400 - 500 grams/m² (SoG)
    Grow height: Medium
    Flowering Indoor: 9 / 11 weeks

    Pics please, and which are Indica and which Sativa? I can't smoke Indica anymore. Puts me right to sleep these days. I do like to keep a small amount around at all times though for those nights when I can't fall asleep :)

    I will attempt to help.

    These are the nutrients and feeding schedule I use. I prefer to grow in a total organic environment and I use ProMix HP for the grow medium. I was going to go hydroponic but after a lot of research I found that the product will taste better when grown in a soil-less media like peat or coco rather than hydroponic.

    The media is ProMix HP with 10% additional potting perlite for added drainage and areation. Pots are 5 gallon buckets with drain holes drilled into the sides and one hole dead center botton filled with 3" coase perlite for bottom drainage and root areation.

    Botanicare Pure Blend Pro (Organic)
    Pure Blend Pro for Soil Standard (ml / gal)


    Botanicare has developed many other products for specific growing needs. Follow the application instructions on individual web pages or product labels, or use our nutrient calculator to ensure recommended PPMs/ECs are not exceeded when adding additional supplements.

    I live near Washington state where pot is legal for home use. All the Pot stores have ads on the radio and slick magazines are produced with all sorts of ads and articles about every kind of cannabis product you can imagine. I'm from the generation where you either (a) had pot or (b) didn't have pot. For guys like me it's a whole new world out there.

    I cannot enjoy weed, never could - but I love gardening. I bet you could grow some really nice peppers and tomatoes with that fertilizer concoction you've got going there.

    I haven't smoked any weed for about 12 years but I liked it quite a lot the few times I partook.
    I am looking forward to seeing it legalized nationwide someday, but I'm most interested in potential medicinal applications as I'm still a bit terrified of cancer and really don't want to go through chemo again.
    This is interesting stuff. How did you get into growing it?

    Cancer (Melanoma) was my motivator. I've always smoked it but when I was diagnosed with stage 2b Melanoma and how sick I was from the interferon treatment the cannabis made eating a little easier and helped me sleep through most of the treatment (every day for 4 weeks).

    Anyway it's been 2 years last April and I'm still cancer free. From all of the info I've read and seen, cannabis may be a literal life saver for many. I wanted to know exactly what I'm putting into my body (chems, pesticides, etc) and the only way to really know is grow it yourself.

    It won't be long before it is legal nationally, the states really want the tax money (25% here in Oregon). I hope you check out the links I've provided, lots of great info and I'll post more as I find them...

    Florida has been F*ng around just to legalize Medicinal MJ and it is coming back up for vote but needs 60% which in this screwed up state would be a miracle. Our government is run by 100% certifiable asshats and clowns. Yes I will vote for it again but if Scott can get elected Governor twice I will be completely shocked if this passes. The cities of Orlando and Daytona Beach just recently made possession of small amounts a ticketable offense instead of one that would put you in jail so home grow would be treated like a MAJOR Felony drug bust. We just can't seem to spend our tax dollars on real crimes instead we just keep jousting with windmills.

    You rock. And cannabis rocks. And I'm glad you're rocking together. And here's to you continuing to rock.
