Over the past 7 years or so (or however long it has actually been since I first joined the Weed World family), I have had the utmost pleasure of becoming acquainted with some truly remarkable people.
Growing your own cannabis is an exciting time for the average home grower. It doesn’t matter whether you have grown cannabis all your life or whether you are doing it for the first time. Planning the grow, and preparing everything required for a smooth cultivation, can be great fun.
To give a bit of back story (I’m really good at that) — I GROW. I’ve literally been growing this plant from the very first joint I ever smoked (which happened to contain a few seeds that I removed and planted) — and then I smoked the good stuff for the very first time.
William Brooke O’Shaughnessy, an Irish physician, is credited with first bringing knowledge of the medicinal benefits of consuming cannabis to the west.
The lighting industry is now more advanced than ever before when it comes to science and knowing which of the latest tech does what can be quite confusing and misleading. Weed World Magazine sat down with Martin Anker from SANlight LED to break down the technical aspects of lighting, what plants actually need and his advice and tips when it coming to investing in a new horticultural lighting system.
Many self-sufficient growers prefer to grow their stash of recreational or medical pot indoors. It allows a controlled environment, a wide choice of varieties and a reasonably predictable way of producing your pot but an increasing number of indoor growers are finding that growing a few outdoor plants can be just as much fun. With the right planning it can be a great way to get a top quality autumn harvest but for those that have never grown outdoors before there are a few things to consider.
Its the dream of all cannabis lovers: having as much great quality cannabis as you care to smoke and all for free. The good news is that this is easy to achieve with a small amount of planning. Lots of people find that growing their own cannabis outdoors is surprisingly easy. It requires no special skills, just a pair of walking boots and an appetite for a mini adventure.
