Do you have any advice for growing cannabis?

I know this is out of the question for some people, but it is becoming a big deal in California as well as a few other states. Lots of people buying land in the warmer areas of the state and then comes the problem of water.

    It is my understanding that cannabis will grow wild in many places in the U.S. First, make sure it is legal to grow where you are. Then, stick some in the ground and see what happens.

    Once you plant it use Round Up. Heard its a great fertilizer for cannabis Lots of rules and regulations to follow. Consider working at a cannabis farm part time to learn the ins and outs.

    You really should check the law on growing it first. It is highly regulated and you just can't stick a few seeds in the ground and be done with it or you will wind up in jail. You could possibly become a licensed grower but check first, grow later.

    My idea was to grow just for my own needs. In my state it's legal to grow 6 plants. I have migraines and depression plus the aches and pains of growing old. I don't want to grow to sell just a few plants just for my own needs. Nothing more. I do have a Medical marijuana card so I don't think it would be against the law.

    Round Up huh? Good one.

    Cannabis is a weed. Once it starts, it is difficult to slow it down. Basic soil, water, sunshine. That is all it takes.

    A weed that can relief to pain. It has a effect one people to increase there appetites, give relief to migraines and I know of one person it help him with MS that he no longer needs the harder drugs for relief plus he able to be more active in his life then he once was. Many people look at weed(cannabis)as a evil item but yet do they take any thing for pain. Headaches, muscle pain, etc? But that's a over the counter pill so it can't hurt me. Want to bet. Best you start to rethink things out. wc

      Hi John Jaeger, We grow for my husband who has a medical card as well. You are entitled to grow six plants at a time, legally. Do not plant seeds because it is unsure if it is male or female. Buy Clones at your Cannabis club to ensure they are female. Plant them in April in the ground and by late October, they are done. During the winter months, we have six in the house growing. They don't get as big, but we don't use any special lighting they stay in the dining room by the sunniest window. March is when these ones are ready. We only use miracle grow on them and nothing else.

    grow them the same as you would grow tomatoes....outside. ....same fert same sunlight...same water...mulch so you do not have to water as often...but you do not have to stake them....start them in house 6 to 8 weeks ahead of planting time...make sure you know how to sex them...otherwise you will get no viable crop....easy.

    This is a part I don't understand about knowing which are male and female. I grew a few plants in a room that wasn't being used at the time with south facing windows and got a large crop but no buds. I wonder what was going on. I was able to extract a lot of THC from the plants once they dried out. Using a double boiler with butter and alcohol and the weed. From there the butter made great cookies. Thus I got the nick name of the "Cookie Man". So now to find more seeds and how to I.D. the plants. wc

    fantastic news. You have been very understanding on a sensitive subject and touchy one. I have cluster migraines and depression and being 70 in June a few aches and pains for being a high end security installer. A couple of falls, hit the head and etc. I take the cannabis twice a day ONLY and only if needed. This is not for party time and has helped me out immensely yet allow me to a normal life. I wish those who don't use cannabis could try to keep as open a mind on the subject. I once felt the same way and the idea of using cannabis was totally out of the question. Thank you Lori. wc

    You can grow indoor. It does not matter where you live.

      Yes, it is good variant. But in this case you need to choose good lights. I prefer led grow lights, because they are not only inexpensive that HID, but they also draw less power. It is important because cannabis plants need the grow lights to operate for at least 18 hours per day! Recently I bought Viparspectra grow lights, they provide a good balance of great features and price is not high, so it is a good choice. I found its review on it is top pick of best LED grow lights of 2017.

    I recommend to search information on special websites about growing. I also recommend to grow indoor.

    Where you live and the security of that area and your weather will determine if you grow outside, inside or hydroponically. Yes I knew a guy that grew hydroponically outdoors (in a shed).

    I grow outside but that is because where I live first it is legal and I stay within the legal number of plants allowed by law, we have some land and don't live in the city.

    I suggest two sites to check out.

    The first is Green Passion and the second is Roll It Up.

    If you go to Green Passion look up a guy called Toke. He knows it all! Green Passion used to have a good section on gorilla growing.

    I prefer Green Passion since in the past decade Roll It Up has gotten huge.

    If you grow outdoors in the ground you will amazed how big the plants get. Of course Sativa or Sativa hybrids are bigger sized to begin with.

    If you live in CA (I live in OR) the weather is perfect for growing outside.

    I have found that the best seeds and ones that incorporate what you require is what to go with.

    If you go to Seedman's site they have filters that you can apply when looking for seeds. This will allow you to get the right seeds for you and your growing conditions.

    For example, you can get a strain that flowers early if you live in an area that is prone to frost.

    You can also order seeds that are mildew and bud proof.

    Or strains that are heavy producers.

    Cannabis always grows faster indoors than outdoors. For the most part, this is due to the fact that Grover can control the lighting.
