  1. Chris, are you still looking for a Caregiver? I’m N of Holland and just posted looking for a new patient. medmanmike
  2. Any idea what the PAR or PPFD rating is on this light? I don’t see any ref. to either. I'm running a Fluence SPYDRx PLUS LED, 660 W actual, with an AVERAGE PPFD (photosynthetic photon flux density) rating above 1020 micro mol/s cross the 4x4’ footprint. I added a dimmer which allows adjustment for germination, veg and flowering. They ain’t cheap (my model currently sells for $1,500) but it’s one hell of a light. Rock hard buds too.
  3. dwkl, I’ve called, left a message, and no one has gotten back to me. When is the office staffed? Thx.
  4. I'm curious. Is anyone tracking their cost to produce an oz?
  5. I'm a CG and have a grow room in my house. Is there anything in the law that would prevent me from setting up an "off-site" grow facility? Meaning, could I rent/lease a building that is not located on my property to set up a grow room? I would, of course, raise only the number of plants - 12/patient, legally allowed.
  6. I went on Sat. Other then the rosin press comment, I totally agree with your experience. The start times were screwed up, local staff didn't know bunny muffin. I had three maybe four different workers telling me what line to go to. Round and round waiting an hour to get in, etc. etc. No map of the layout of booths, no list of vendors, the Sat. seminars were nothing, every other booth was blasting music so loud you COULDN'T hear the person next to you. The biggest disappointed for me was there wasn't any seminars about our MMMA, the new laws, the new licenses (dispensaries, growers,
  7. I know this topic has been discussed here in the past, but I believe it's worth reviewing. The more people that know about this the better! The following is taken from the May 28, 2017 Canna Law Blog of the law firm Harris/Bricken. http://www.cannalawblog.com/jury-nullification-is-a-real-thing-and-you-should-know-about-it/?utm_source=Harris+Bricken+-+Canna+Law+Blog&utm_campaign=af3f26ae52-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f771927421-af3f26ae52-71351949 "Most people—and even many lawyers—are surprised to learn that juries are not required to follow the law.
  8. I've always been a "glass half full" kind of guy and have followed the "one in the hand is worth two in the bush" approach to life. Every step we take that loosens existing MJ laws helps establish more acceptance by the general public which that creates more acceptance, etc. Years ago I had a wise friend tell me that when struggling over making a decision that it's better to make a decision - even if it's not exactly what you want because you can always change or fine-tune the decision later. Change is slow and it always doesn't go exactly the way we want it but let's not forget where we sta
  9. First, I need to update the Pot. Bicarb comment. After having read goods things about it for controlling PM I was really puzzled as to why the plant was burned so badly. I still need to review this, but upon reflecting I don't think I converted the ratio correctly. The jar calls for 1 Tbs of Green Cure to 1 gal of water. I'm now thinking I didn't convert from English to metric correctly ending up with to strong a product. I only made up 8 oz. worth. Here's what I used for the Vinegar and h2o2. Mix 4 tbs of apple cider vinegar with 1 gallon of water. Reapply every three days. One q
  10. FWIW, I sprayed Green Cure (potassium bicarbonate) on a test plant (male, day 33 of veg) today (been fighting PM). I used the recommended amount - 1 tbs to a gallon. It burned the bunny muffin out of the leaves! Ive also been using hydrogen peroxide and apple cider vinegar at the recommended rate and neither seem to negatively effect the plants. The potassium bicarbonate fried the smaller, newer leaves the worse and I'm not sure if it will recover.
  11. TH, I'm in the same boat, i.e. back pain, can't sleep, etc. I can't recommend a strain, but the closer I get to a 1:1 ratio of THC/CBD the more effective the strain. I have noticed that a higher THC is needed, at least for me. High CDB low THC strains are very uncomfortable for me, especially in larger doses. Someone posted this on the 420mag site about "Interpening". Learning how to identify strains by their appearance (of the bud), smell, taste, etc. Lots of FAQs, videos, etc. Check it out http://www.trichomeinstitute.com/
  12. When I was in the classroom, I would use the following exercise to try to make a point with my students about the difference (if there is one) between a whopper and a little white lie. They're both a lie, right? So, you and your buddy find yourselves in a situation where there's a $10 bill and a $1.00 bill lying on the counter. Your buddy saw the $10 first and he pockets it. You take the $1.00. Both of you "stole" the money. Which one is a worse crime? Or, are they both the same, value not withstanding? We can justify and rationalize most anything, especially if I'm "better" than yo
  13. Of course, we all know the definition of "insanity", right?
  14. Putting the differences of opinion on the VPD chart aside , I wanted to provide a follow-up to my PM issue. As I stated in my initial post, the lab noted the presence of PM. I called and spoke to the technician who ran the testing, asking for more detail: could he quantity the severity, was it widespread throughout the bud, etc. He looked at his notes and brought out the samples. His notes - and he confirmed this by taking another close look at the samples - showed that the mildew was not widespread, was only on the outer leaves, and had not penetrated the actual bud. I purposely don
  15. SB, thanks for your comments. I do have this chart, but I question its use as some of the RH numbers seem so high and so far outside of what one would consider the normal range(s) for cannabis. I'm assuming you use this? What do you run (temp / RH) mid/late flower? Anyone else out there who "adheres" to the VPd chart through out the grow cycle? I've tried to reconcile using this chart but I just can't wrap my head around 70%RH at 77° F . Just seems like way to much humid. Just saying.
  16. How did they get P/C names, etc.? Isn't this suppose to be confidential?
