  1. Thank you for the answers, I really appreciate it! It's hard to believe that they would allow us to have medical and recreational combined! Figured for sure they would limit you one way or the other!
  2. Just wondering if anyone knows can you have a medical grow and a recreational grow in the same house, for the same person? I have read tons of Articles and forums but have not seen an answer for this anywhere. Even my recommending Dr for my card had no idea about this either.

    Now This Is Cool!

    Well I apologize if this fake, didn't mean to mislead anyone. Just thought it was cool, guess I'm just ignorant of how bees make honey. If it is real, it would be cool though!

    Now This Is Cool!

    Man Trains Bees To Make Honey From Marijuana Many are calling him a genius. The man is an artisan, locksmith and above all else, he explains, he is a beekeeper. He has over 4300 Facebook followers and 700 on Instagram after the 39-year-old Frenchman, who describes himself as an advocate of medical cannabis and of complete marijuana legalization, trained bees to make honey from marijuana. He goes by the nickname of Nicolas Trainerbees, for obvious reasons. For 20 years, he has worked with bees in a way where he claims he is able to “train” them to make honey from virtually anything. “I have trained bees to do several things, such as collect sugar from fruits, instead of using flowers,” he explains. Nicholas says he has “been passionate about nature since childhood,” which led him to this profession that mixes his love for plant life with his love for animals – especially insects. Nicholas calls the marijuana-honey produced by the bees “cannahoney” from “a training technique whereby the bees collect the resin and use it in the beehive”. The final substance, he explains, is the sole work of the bees. “For some time I had known about the health benefits of bee products such as honey, propolis, pollen, wax and royal jelly and also about the benefits of cannabis”, and so he decided to take notice of the requests,” he explains. Add to that the fact that “everything that passes through the body of a bee is improved”, he said, since their enzymes make the nectar turn into honey. “So if the bee took the resin from cannabis it would also be very beneficial”. “The aim arose for me to get the bees to obtain this resin”, he added. The “cannahoney” has “quite a floral” aroma and a color, he explains. It “is not smoked, it is ingested and it is good for health”, he adds. Nicolas says that “the bees accept any strain”. So do the bees get high off of the marijuana they make the honey from? “The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids because they do not have an endocannabinoid system”, he says. It’s just another form of food for them. Watch the bees in action in the video below… http://countercurrentnews.com/2016/03/man-trains-bees-to-make-honey-from-herb/

    General Hydroponics Nutes And Delayed Flowering

    Thanks Restorium! I follow their Schedule and really like it, plants always healthy,etc. Just seems like they need an extra week or 2 before they fully ripen. I also noticed the delayed showing of the flowers in the beginning. Maybe I just got a weird pheno type or something, lol!

    General Hydroponics Nutes And Delayed Flowering

    One other thing I forgot to ask; The last week is a flush week, nothing but plain water. Can the Buds continue to get bigger during this week even though there are no nutes in the water?
  7. Was wondering if anyone here uses the GH line of nutes? I'm on my second run, so still new to hydro. But it seems like it delays the flowering period by a week or two. I'm running gorilla glue #4, which is a 56 day cycle, but this is the second time i'm going to have to go over by a week at least. Last time I stayed in mid bloom for the extra 2 weeks, but this time I'm going to stay in the late bloom for a little extra time cause doing it in mid bloom didn't really fatten up the Buds all that well. I'm suspicious of the transition week they have, it's the first week of flower, they don't seem to change the nutes much from the veg stage and Normally I see the starting of flower around the 10th day in soil, but with this setup it seems to take at least 14 days to see the start of the flowers. Sometimes even a little longer. Just wondering if this is Normal for hydro, or maybe these nutes?

    Question On Magnetic Ballast

    I've been running two 1000 watt hoods for a little while now. A couple of weeks ago I noticed one of the lights seems a little more orange and dimmer than the other one. I thought it was the bulbs at first so I switched the bulbs around. Ended up doing the same thing. So I got hold of an amp meter, and measured the amp draw. The good ballast started at about 6 amps and slowly climbs upwards and leveled off @ 9 amps when the light was fully warmed up. Which 9 amps is normal according to the specifications from the manufacturer. When I tested the other ballast it starts at 4 amps and levels off at 6 amps! Definitely a problem there seeing as how this is the same identical ballast as the other one but 4-5 years older. So I bought a new ballast and everything is back to normal. Can this old ballast be repaired? I hear sometimes the capacitors go bad? If it were a bad capacitor wouldn't it fail to run at all? Or do they slowly fade in their power output like what I experienced before they finally go out? Any ideas on what it could be? I would like to repair it if possible so I can have a backup on hand if needed.

    Eating Dabs

    Sorry for the delay, just got around to decarbing this past weekend. That definitely made the difference. I decarbed for 30 minutes at 240, mixed in a tiny amount of coconut oil with it. Ended up Ingesting a half gram. That was quite the experience, lol! A little too strong for me but not too bad. Definitely had no problem sleeping, lol! Going to try half of that next time and I should be good to go! Thanks for all the help in this everyone, I really appreciate it!

    Congress Just Ended The Ban On Medical Marijuana

    ''Cassandra Fairbanks, of the Bipartisan Report, notes that “The measure allows states to implement their own policies regarding medical marijuana, meaning the Department of Justice is now barred from interfering with state medical cannabis laws.” “For a long time,” Fairbanks explains, “the federal government refused to respect the will of the voters in states with legalized medical marijuana, leading to raids and arrests of doctors, growers, and dispensaries.” Doesn't this mean that they can't raid, arrest, prosecute, etc. The people as well?
  14. Can they do that? Is that even legal? How are they going to be able to enforce that? How will they know who has medical cards, or who are caregivers? I thought our names we're all protected by Lara? I also thought that the state law overrides city ordinances? So many questions, lol!
