Sup /b/ got some "dank" shit today.. (Pic related) Is this legit ? Black spots and looks bad please help m8
Looks like it might've been dank once upon a time. Looks sick, like it's getting moldy or something. Looks like some hood weed, loaded with trichomes but shitty material.
Smoke it, see how it tastes. Might just be an ugly duckling
>someone posts pic of their weed
>other anons call it shitty no matter how good it is
every 4chan stoner thread ever.
but looks kinda okay'ish to me. yeah the black spots look kinda disturbing. try, you'll find out.
could be better, but its not bad. 5/10
That weed looks pretty harsh.
This pot however..
This is from my harvest a couple months ago and shows the buds' natural coloration vs the black "moldy" color the other anons are refering too. Lol, refer-ing.
only fuckin dumb hipster high school kids say, "does this weed look good or bad".
>PROTIP: GET A JEWELERS LUPE AND EXAMINE THE TRICHS YOURSELF ASSUMING YOU KNOW WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE IN RELATION TO THC/CBD
Nice picture dude. Sadly, that does not look like a fun smoke. I don't know what kind of chainsaw they used to harvest that back in 1985, but jesus christ those stem peelings.
Smells good .. Paid 150 european dollars for 15 g. Mostly sticks and stems. It pops while smoking so can it Be laced with Hairspray. Shitty pic related
I'd say it looks about a 3/10. It will still get you high. Probably won't taste very nice.
OP it looks fine. Those dark spots are the bud turning purple, it does this because of a temperature drops during grow. Looks like it has a fair bit of stalk, but neverless, looks like nice bud. If its too sticky, put it on some paper and put it on top of your xbox or playstation fan to dry it out.
>It pops while smoking
That's most likely because it wasn't flushed before harvest, so there's still nutes in the plant.
looks like some old purps thats all. should smoke fine. dont listen to these fucking fags...
WA state fag here. How hard is it to find good BHO or CO2 oil in states where weed is still illegal? Genuinely curious. Once I started smoking extracts there is no fucking way I'd go back to smoking grandpa dope.
Not that anon, but you get out what you put in. Carbload, bud boost and PK all help. It's worth the expense of decent plant food.
when i see that you get, i would definately do it. but i dont wanna sell. it would just be for my own use and manybe some friends. how much would a setup cost with which you can havest enough to have like 1g - 2g a day.
this is my calculation.
Harvest every 3 months (90 days)
means 180g/harvest neccesary
So How much would a setup cost that i could harvest that much with??
nope :) huge buds and big hands as well actually
here some other buds, 3-4g each bud for comparison
>/b/ is muh marijuanas injectible??
>EXEMIN THE TRICHOMES OP.png
You're nearly as stupid as him
...I used the whole advanced nutrients line up by the way to grow these buds
Ignore the anon being a faggot.
Hes basically saying get a magnifying glass and look at the crystals, you can tell if the weed has been picked/cured right by the color of the trichomes, if you know what you are looking at.
Colorado fag here. fgts keep moving here fucking it up for locals. How about voting in your own state and staying the fuck there. Some of us want to go home after a long days work but fggts are fucking everywhere. Just please leave and don't come here
Green house seeds.
If all you want is personal smoke, you'd only need a couple of plants in flower, with cuttings or seedlings vegging for the next one. I average about 5oz (140g) per plant.
My room cost about £1000 to set up, but to grow a couple I'd look at a grow tent. You can get everything in one go.
Its seeded, and terribly handled by the look of it. If they had taken a bit more time with it it could have been some nice smoke.
150 euros is probably a bit much for that quality, I'd say you got ripped off somewhat, at least its not oregano though.
Sure did anon, 20yo michigan fag here and its legal for medical use. Up to 12 plants per person per month and im a care giver for my dad since he broke his back a year ago so we have 24 now, hoping to get more but since we keep it legal we're waiting for more people to sign over to us. Heres the grow when i was building after his accident. Neither of us believe in the use of prescription narcs and opiates
Looks like good stuff for having been packed in a brick and shipped from wherever(mexico most likely). Not so great as the fresher (high dollar) stuff most people would consider 'dank.'
That bud looks so fucked
You're gonna have to tell us what you paid if you want an opinion.
Not bland, but not as fruity as straight grapefruit. A mate grew some grapefruit a few years ago, and it smelt and tasted exactly like a grapefruit. Wish I knew where they were from.
because you dont know anything about weed
ok, and how many plants fit in a tent like that?
do you know where i could find some reliable intructions on growing?
I need details becaause i am terrible with plants. i even let a cactus die
I have a 3'x3' tent for my babies, but could probably flower 4 plants in there.
The orange pots are about 8" tall, for scale.
Try 420chan for expert help, but you won't have to search far to find a guide online.
Just give them the same food at the same time of day and you'll find they're pretty hardy. Don't be tempted by hydroponics to start with, as things can go wrong much more quickly than in soil (I use coco).
Probably 2-4 hours per week worth of work while they grow, depending on what kind of setup you have.
Manicuring/trimming after you pull your plants is a big job, but up until then it doesnt take a lot of work.
Looking good anon. Not leggy, like they often are at that kind of size. Seed or cutting?
4.5-5.5 usually., depends on the strain sometimes.
You can only really sex it when it flowers, unfortunately. Girls have hairs, boys have balls.
>pic related, a male.
Ok. Ive been hearing the terms sacks and pistils a lot. I was readibg somethibg earlier that caught my eye. Someone said something about "pulling" your plants. Does that quite literally mean pull it from the ground to harvest?
by the way you can easily find in-depth "how-to" videos on youtube for almost any setup. Fairly sure its not illegal for them to be there, or to watch them, even if growing is illegal in your country.
If it's male, you just pull it up and throw it. If harvesting, yes you can just pull it up then trim it, but I find it easier to chop off a branch at a time and trim them, then hang them up to dry.
Something that I don't often hear is the importance of drying it in complete darkness. The dark means the chloroplasts (the things that photosynthesise) break down. Even a little light is enough to keep them functioning, and they give a harsh smoke.
>Manicuring/trimming after you pull your plants is a big job
Don't remind me. Cropping
yes anon, thats the end of the cycle, though the plant still needs to be dried, trimmed, and cured before its smokable, which is probably another 1-6 weeks depending how thorough you want to be
"Looks like it might've been dank once upon a time." LOL this shit was dank when my grandpa was in highschool.
Alright. I understand. So when would be the best time to trim? All the actual growers in here make me feel like a lame ass. You guys have such beautiful plants and ill i have is a regs plant....
Dark is arguably essential if you really want to appreciate the flavour of the bud. Won't affect it's effect, but the chloroplasts will spoil the taste as they give a quite acrid smoke.
I use a pair of scissors to trim off all the leaf, following the natural shape of the bud. Best to do this straight away, as the leaves will curl as they dry, and they're a pain in the arse to get off. Then just hang it up with a fan circulating the air for 7-10 days. Then whatever I'm keeping goes into kilner jars - again in the dark - to cure, opening once a week to replace the air. This lets the terpenes in the flowers to oxidise into terpenoids, and these give each strain it's aroma and flavour.
Yeah, have got a mate coming to help. Other than my wife, he's the only person that knows I grow.
Yes, I keep the finger hash, and all the fine trim goes to make bubble hash or qwiso.
no, drying is literally when you hang the trimmed/manicured plant up to dry, you cant smoke the plant while its wet, and if you try to cure a plant (usually in a glass jar) when its wet, thats how mouldy buds happen. Curing also sort of concentrates the THC, think of the plant just mellowing in its own gases and crystal-laden air without any escaping.
Questions are good anon. It's the people that think they already know everything that fuck up.
I "flush" my plants by stopping their food and giving only pH adjusted water for the last 2 weeks of flower. This makes the plant use up any nutes still in the soil and then draw up pure water, using up any nutes left in the plant matter. If it's not flushed, the bud tastes metallic, and pops and sparks when you smoke it.
Probably right after you pick it, but its not mandatory, it can be done after its been drying a while. Manicuring is a chore, so basically whenever after you pick it that you have the time. Make sure you do this before curing it in glass, all that extra leaf material is basically just waste, and you dont want it soaking up any of the goodness.
Just so you know, your first two responses were for me. Now that thats clear, back to trimming. So once the bud starts to form, is the best time to start trimming? How far back on the leafs do you trim? Could you use the trimmed leaves to make extracts?
I don't really trim while it's still growing, though I do remove any leaf that's blocking the light to a bud. I wouldn't use these to make extracts, unless you want to add CBD to your extract in which case you can add some, but all the fine trim that comes off at harvest definitely. I've made hash and qwiso, and plan to have a go at BHO this time.
Mainly personal as my wife has MS, but I do sell some, and I'd be lying if I said the money didn't help. It all goes to the same couple of people though, I don't deal it myself.
Right on. Thabk you so much for the information. Honestly, ive learned quite a bit in the last hour. I could probably pick your brain for another if you had the time. What kind of food are you using? At the moment im just strait up soil and water.
Anyone from Norway here? Just flew from Austria with an unwashed pipe, shit's hard to get here, had to inhale the residue from the pipe...
I need some bud as I can't grow my own where I live
No problem dude. I use CocoA+B for veg, and then at various points during flower I use Liquid Carbload, Ace Of Bud, PK 13/14 and Bud Boost.
Also some pH down, as Cannabis likes slightly acidic water.
I was the other anon answering your questions, without any images, but this anon seems to know a lot more than I do. Im gonna peace out, just wanted to say good luck with your grow, friend
if ur outside oslo u will never get weed, only hash. u kinda have to know some norwegian people to get to a good dealer, so for foreigners it might be hard. either ur an outgoing person and go get that done, or u just have to find an Akonblack guy that says "ey man, u good man? need anythin?" whos standing under a bridge
I got it all from a local growshop. There's nothing that needs anything other than the cash to buy it ( in the UK, at least). They're mostly just varying mixtures that provide the right nutes for the stage of growth, e.g. veg needs lots of Nitrogen, then flowering needs extra Phosphorus and Potassium (P/K). Then there are loads of trace elements like Molybdenum that the plant needs.
Thank you. I really do appreciate your time and knowledge. Regardless, i have a better understanding thanks to you as well. Please continue to carry on this beautiful science. Peace be with you, friend.
dude I like your dedication! what sort of turn-around are you yielding compared to the effort and costs to run something like this? I don't plan on doing anything like that, but I bet it gets real money.
Alright. Im in the US so im not sure. Sketchy laws. More specifically AZ. Pretty damn hot for outdoors, but my plant has managed so far. So from the picture i showed you, im still in the early stages of growth. Would you agree? Ill take another picture with time stamp if need be
Each grow costs maybe £400 in electricity, another couple of hundred on soil, food etc. I spend an hour a day, maximum, tending them, then it usually takes two of us a weekend to crop.
Generally get 45-50oz dry, keep maybe 5 or 6 for myself, then the rest goes to the same couple of people at £200/oz, £180/oz for 5 or more.
So a low estimate is around £6500 profit, plus, of course, all the bud I want and the oil or hash made from the fine trim.
Yeah, it's vegging. Outside, it probably won't flower until the daylight period is less than the dark.
Hmmmm... alright. Im strongly considering a few indoor grows now. Ya we are hitting the time where the sun is out longer than the night is around. Roughly 13 hours of sun. I noticed, in your pictures, what looks like exhaust duct. What is that?
You could try an autoflower. Never done one myself, but they're supposed to flower based on age rather than photoperiod. They wouldn't get as big, but theoretically they should flower all year round.
The ducting is attached to an intake fan, drawing in cool air. There's more on the ceiling that's attached to a carbon filter and an extractor fan.
Well unfortunately for me, its illegal to grow :/. So i dont know how i could aquire these seeds. So do you basically trick the plant into cycling with certain light patterns?
Illegal here too. I get my seeds online, usually from Greenhouse Seeds or Barney's Farm Seeds. I realise though that seeds are also illegal in some places. In England, they're legal until you germinate them.
Yes, that's exactly what I do with the lights. They start vegging on 24hr light to grow them fast, then after 4 weeks or so go to 18 light 6 dark. When They're big enough, I switch to 12/12, which makes the plant flower. After 5 weeks it changes to 10l/14d, mainly to save on the electricity bill, I'm not sure this last change makes much difference to the plant.
>pic - my first attempt at making qwiso
Ikr? If you google "Nicholas Trainerbees", this dude claims to have trained his bees to collect resin from weed flowers which then makes it in to the honey.
No, I grow in coco. It's basically soil without any nutrients, so it's kind of like hydro with a much bigger buffer against disaster.
You could start them on 18/6, they just won't get as big in the same amount of time. The light is the most important food you give them.
I've been getting this same shit, i think it's fine as in it shouldn't hurt you or anything, its looks okay but it wasin't cured right so its shitty. Usually i smoke a couple one hitters but with this its almost as bad as brick weed
that purple shit is all i smoke
Buying molly later today and trying it for the first time
Let me remind you i am a complete noob lol. What do you mean by 18/6? Is that the light v.s. dark cycle? When you say coco, you mean like coco powder? Like what you bake with?
You can make most strains purple by keeping the temperature around 60F during the dark period.
Sorry anon, tes 18light/6dark. The coco is (I think) made from coconut husks. Coco coir is the full name. It looks and feels just like compost but contains no nutrition, which gives you better control over the food they get, and it makes it easier to flush out the nutes before harvest.
Me too - I even have a hive of bees. Fuck knows how you go about training them though.
Black mould is most likely Aspergillus niger. Only really a problem if you have a weakened immune system.
You're welcome /b/ro. I enjoy sharing what I've learned. I was lucky to have a friend with 6 years growing experience to help me set up, and I still call on him all the time for advice. Go and lurk 420chan. You'll get all the info you need there.
any dealers around ann arbor willing to sell me some weed?
sorry to try and understand this especially since being rather baked.... but that picture is saying that cannabis is illegal because then all these companies could use it? and that's bad because they are competitors? and they will fight over it?
Cannabis was persecuted so much in the US because the then head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, Harry Anslinger, was friends with the boss of Dupont chemicals. Dupont had just patented a new process for bleaching wood pulp for paper and needed to remove the competition. And plastics, of course. All plastics currently made from oil could be made from hemp oil, and they'd be biodegradable.
Read "The Emperor Wears No Clothes" by Jack Herer if you want to be really pissed off.
And you should never apologise for trying to understand something.
Why do you need to start over? I started growing at age 39 (4 years ago). Get a good carbon filter and don't tell anyone, there's no problem.
