    Wild Bill got a reaction from blackhorse in Clone Swap   
    The Clone Swap at the Fall Harvest Expo was such a massive hit that we decided to do another one! This Saturday during the November Grower Day featuring DL Wholesale you can bring up to 2 clones and or seeds and trade them with your fellow growers.
    *We will be inspecting plants for issues at the door.
    DL Wholesale will be trimming live product and making bubble hash with the trim. So make sure you stick around for the demo!

    You may want to store it with a little higher moisture content. If it becomes too dry it will frequently make the smoke harsh. Try about 15% and see if it smokes smoother.
    I tried storing it in vacuum bags which worked pretty well but I vacuumed it a little too much and it ended up as a brick. Worked for long term storage but we had to steam the brick open like in the old days.

    Wild Bill reacted to Gtrick in Saving Patients and Caregivers - Struggle Continues   
    This post caught my eye.  I was recently in a dispensary to acquire some full spectrum  cbd oil to make edibles.  I showed them my ID and card, walked inside for my first time.  Within 3 minutes of conversation with tender he referred to the caregiver patient system as some sort of back street drug dealing black market! I was floored! This was the first time I had been talked to about it . 
    I felt so betrayed by an industry that is supposed to be based on helping the sick. I can not support in anyway a shop or individual who resorts to stigmatization to profit.  But ssdd.  I will now be looking for cbd through a good caregiver source. Not some street hustler or any business involved in this degradation of character of Michigan's caregivers.  Thank you.

    LED's are probably your best option. They use less electricity and have a better color spectrum. If you aren't getting the results you're looking for with your existing LED's then get more wattage. There is thread on here about LED lights and what you should look for.
    If you decide to go with the old technology then I would advise HPS.

    Food grade diatomaceus earth will kill them without covering your plants in toxic chemicals. It has the consistency of talcum powder but on a microscopic level looks like shards of glass. It cuts soft bodied insects like they were crawling through barbed wire. Makes it impossible for them to lay eggs.

    Wild Bill got a reaction from Slappy in veg time   
    I've never paid attention to length of time.
    When the plants get to the height I want, (generally 2 1/2 to 3 feet) I put them into flower.
    The length of time I leave them in flower varies from strain to strain. When the leaves yellow and the trichs are cloudy then I cut.
    It doesn't normally hurt anything to wait a little longer unless you wait a long time and all the trichs turn brown.

    Wild Bill got a reaction from blackhorse in When Baking, What Temp?   
    Try this;
    Quick bhang
    Ingredients
    2 cups water
    1 ounce marijuana (fresh leaves and flowers of a female plant preferred)
    4 cups warm milk
    2 tablespoons blanched and chopped almonds
    1/8 teaspoon garam masala (a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, and cardamon)
    1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon rosewater
    1 cup sugar

    This is the traditional method of preparation:
    Bring the water to a rapid boil and pour into a clean teapot. Remove any seeds or twigs from the marijuana, add it to the teapot and cover. Let this brew for about 7 minutes.
    Now strain the water and marijuana through a piece of muslin cloth, collect the water and save.

    Take the leaves and flowers and squeeze between your hands to extract any liquid that remains. Add this to the water.
    Place the leaves and flowers in a mortar and add 2 teaspoons warm milk. Slowly but firmly grind the milk and leaves together. Gather up the marijuana and squeeze out as much milk as you can. Repeat this process until you have used about 1/2 cup of milk (about 4 to 5 times). Collect all the milk that has been extracted and place in a bowl. By this time the marijuana will have turned into a pulpy mass.

    Add the chopped almonds and some more warm milk. Grind this in the mortar until a fine paste is formed. Squeeze this paste and collect the extract as before. Repeat a few more times until all that is left are some fibers and nut meal. Discard the residue.

    Combine all the liquids that have been collected, including the water the marijuana was brewed in. Add to this the garam masala, dried ginger and rosewater. Add the sugar and remaining milk.

    New Method

    Bring the water to a rapid boil and pour into a clean teapot. Remove any seeds or twigs from the marijuana, add it to the teapot and cover. Let this brew for about 7 minutes. Place this mixture along with the remaining ingredients in a blender set to 'liquify'. Blend for several minutes, strain through a mesh coffee filter. Enjoy!

    Wild Bill reacted to CannaAutismMom in I have a 10 year old in need of a doctor to receive his card   
    There should be 2 doctors in the Saginaw area. I can find out for you. I know we have a quite a few that are willing to see minor children. Take documents showing the autism diagnosis along with the paperwork (typically they have it there). I haven’t ran into to many problems with parents obtaining a card for their child. You do have to pay for the doctors visits and I believe it’s still $65 to the state. You will receive a card for your child and one for you as a parent you HAVE to be the caregiver. If you have any questions please let me know, I’ve been treating my 12 year old for over 3 years now. 🌱🧩 💚

    Cali is feeling it hard rn. They have a strong grassroots movement and are doing well with it. They have established groups of their own groups of growers and caregivers alike to lobby against the big corporations and to try and establish a fair market for everyone to compete in. I think doing this is probably our best chance at keeping big corp from monopolizing market share. We need to build caregiver coalitions and local groups willing to stand up and rally lobby and "compete" in this corporate game against them. We must play this game and remember that WE have been playing this much longer than them. WE know our markets and our patients/consumers. We from the mitten know our mitten and will be the best at providing what fellow michiganders want and need in their meds not out of state corp greedy money hungry sharks. 
    We are here for the patients. The caregiver network. And for our personal human rights. We need to take the focus off the greed and dollar and put it back to the elderly, sick, etc. We must show our state this. 
    Let's rally together build alliances & coalitions and local forms of competition for these corps. We can keep our community. We just may have to get our hands dirty. But hey. We should all be used to getting our hands dirty!

    Wild Bill reacted to semicaregiver in Ph help   
    Sounds like your well water has some elements that are acting as a buffering agent.   This is a problem with Detroit (Great Lakes Water Authority) water.  They add a buffering agent to prevent the water going acidic.  Low ph will leach lead into the drinking water.   While the source of your problem is some natural occurring element, the solution may be the same.   I use a 55 gallon drum as a water storage reservoir and adjust the ph over a period of time.  For example when I first fill it the ph is right around 7.  Just like your experience I can ph it down to 5.8 (hydro usage).   In a few hours it will shoot back up to around 6.6-6.8 due to the buffering chemicals that Detroit added.  A second ph treatment will return the ph to my target, 5.8 and it will hold.  I do not use all the water at once so I keep it aerated with a couple of air stones.
    My approach is not terribly sophisticated, just a solution that I found works for me from trial and error.  Perhaps someone with more chemistry knowledge will have a simpler solution.
