  1. I dont think any of us think their penalties are fair. As the law currently stands I get way less jail time for trafficking a truckload. But then I look at the bill as a whole, what its purpose is, then I see the reasoning behind its structure. While my personal opinion is there should be no limits whatsoever. However the limits they are suggesting are more than adequate to cover personal home use. The limits they are setting on gifts is more than adequate to allow us to barter freely. As for the reasoning behind the harsh sentences. Imo if I do look at the allowances

  2. 0.25 grams of concentrate is equal to 1 gram of dried cannabis. So if you are allowed 1.2kg of dried cannabis, and you produce 1.5kg in your yield, and then take 0.5kg and turn it into concentrate, your theoretical stash amount is equal to 1kg (dried cannabis) + x of concentrate as long as the concentrate isn't more than 50g. 50g concentrate = 200g dried cannabis That time where you have the extra 300g over the 1.2kg limit will be like breaking the speed limit. If you wanted to play it safe I'd put that 0.5kg of dried cannabis into a container and label it "For Concentrate". E

  4. Not promising anything to anyone, but I may be this person. Been planning a legal commercial grow for a while but funding is an issue. Working on a unique product (since I'm a chemist) using weed, and if I can get the formula and processes just right I'm pretty sure I can secure some agreement to grow on a large scale to produce what I need. If ever it comes to light, which I'm hoping it will, it means South Africa will have a reason to commercially grow weed. What I need is ways to extract cannabinoids and terpenoids and then use them by themselves... I don't have the means or the cash, b

  5. It's a trafficable offence that carries a fifteen year jail sentence as I read it. The police have been heavy handed on some people who sell cigarettes and alcohol on the black market and not on others. I would say caution is paramount.

  6. It is surely unconstitutional to exclude people from climbing the ranks in commercial activity, from small-scale to corporate size enterprises. There should be a tiered licensing and multi-sector approach. It's a good example of how people across the spectrum can benefit from economic activity related to cultivation, sale and beneficiation of cannabis. It is also a good example of how easy it is for the State and Monopoly to capture the market. Anyway, that's all I can say on the subject. Lol. I will move away from such serious stuff. I didn't know that the Bill had been passed until I came on

  11. Man that is a sore point. I had to stop doing that for now. Although the sun is out the temperature out here on the reservation is still freezing with the wind chill factor. Not to mention the strong gust's that blow every so often. Then in summer it's fcuk'ng hot, hence my outdoor grow is usually in a shade house. Busy setting up a permaculture area for a few plants that I hope will give them a bit of protection and natural nutrients from the surrounding herbs and plants. Waiting for the September full moon to plant the mother herb and in a year or two I should have a nice oasis with a strea

  13. I am afraid the commercial part of regulation might become a dirty game where each big shark in the pond will try and make big money walking over dead bodies. As soon as big money is involved people can become monsters. I think people like you and me will have a tough time to establish a business unless you got friends in the right places. I agree it is unconstitutional to exclude people from getting a chance and live from the cannabis business but I have seen many things happening (especially lately during lockdown) that appear unconstitutional to me. When it comes to Police I hope they'

  14. 5 ring boards 45W each 4200K 4 ring board 36W 6000K. I haven't checked actual power draw. All mounted onto a thin aluminum plate. Doubles as a heat mat for germinating seeds/clone dome. So this light was built to veg the keepers which don't need alot of light. The ring is a lens over the diodes. I've been meaning to remove it but just never got around to doing as this light as is vegs very impressively and I spend minimal time in this tent. I've ended up using the other diy light for the keepers and this light for vegging plants about to be flipped. This light has been ON

  19. Hey howzit@TheUltimateNoob. Sorry bud, just realized I've changed the topic of this thread, I'm sitting in a corner now with a spliff as punishment for the bad deed. I'll start a permaculture thread soon as there is only a row of corn at the moment. It's gonna be a long haul though. A year or two before the 7 canopy layer will be readish.

  22. I'm not sure it's even on the radar. There is already a legal avenue for the big guys with lots of capital to setup shop for export. So whenever we start hearing about anything to do with local commercial sales will be when that is addressed, and if it's anything like what is happening in Canada, the small guys would be left behind. So I foresee a lot of work still to be done.

  23. Law degree really helps 😬 Sure you can, just don't call it a transaction. You're allowed to gift 100g of dry herb, 30 seeds/seedlings, and one flowering plant. There's also a section where you can calculate amount of concentrate you can have/gift. It is simply two giftings happening one after the other 😬 Don't worry. If anything gets you "in trouble" you're really only left with the inconvenience of dealing with the police as long as you are indeed within the scope of the law. This is why we must remain vigilant and make noise if

  24. Well, if you gift someone a clone, and the next day they gift you a gram...not sure... That is harsh, and the guys in Knysna are also fighting as they got Grant's to grow, but have gotten harrassed, and all sorts. This Country is it's own, and needs it's own style plan, not a copy and paste, of what doesn't even work for the overseas brother's. Let's also leave the past in the past, it's now water under the bridge 🤜🤛

  25. I'm in the process of cross referencing in the BILL to understand what it is saying. My concerns are the felony charges and prison sentences. They are brutal. Sure, quantities appear to be quite generous for personal use and cultivation. Another concern that I have is the definition of "remuneration". It's saying you can't exchange cannabis for money or for anything else that makes it a transaction. So I can't give you ten clones for x g dry material or concentrate for instance. Another reason I am concerned is because our police Minister appears to be rather heavy handed in all of his deali

  26. So you in the clear now man? Nothing gonna catch you off guard hopefully. Apologies for the misunderstanding earlier. The members here are passionate and will voice their opinion without fear from what I've seen - also, context & tone isn't generally portrayed well through text. Hope you're all good.

  27. The law though, and this forum are not the same. You can be serious all you want. But please don't expect me to tread lightly just because of it, or feel sorry that your feelings are hurt. If you knew me at all, you'd know that I'm OCD level serious when it comes to Cannabis. That seriousness doesn't need to cloud the lighter atmosphere we try to keep going here. It is afterall a social platform. At best all I see is a little light humor, a mild hazing and welcome to the community, but that's just me...

  28. With respect. The law is a very serious subject and that is why I take it seriously. I have discovered subsequent to my initial comment, that the BILL I had in my possession was the leaked BILL of January last year. The 2020 BILL is revised and reads very differently, so I retract my initial criticism of the BILL.

  29. I'm fine with that. I had the leaked BILL from January last year, which I have discovered was edited and is different from the actual BILL, which I have now found on the government site. My error for not looking for a new version. So I will have to retract what I said about the BILL being a bad one. I will read the revised one. Still it is unnecessary for a bunch of people to make fun of someone for having a difference of opinion. I accept your apology though. Thanks.

  32. Hate to break it to you warrior of justice, but this plant has been illegal for more than a "few" years, circa 1922. You can't have it both ways the government will try to make money from it, exactly how every American state/Canada has done.

  33. Why is private use regulated anyway? You can plant as many vines as you want to make wine or brew as much as you want to make beer. Why must my private use be regulated? Nobody tells you how many potatoes you can grow and consume? Step in the right direction but not too happy.

  34. As someone who knows a little bit about the law and property leasing agreements, I can already see loopholes unless they have been accounted for. They will need to define "household", otherwise you can just "sign a lease" of one room in your house to a friend and boom. Your limits have doubled. Sign another lease and boom. Your limit has tripled.

  35. Bro, I'm currently in the process of developing my own brand with an online store. It's items with all custom designed prints (designed by me). Will be launching it on Instagram by hopefully months end. If you're still interested in supporting some local businesses by then, I reckon they're gonna be hit items. So we could talk about setting up a distribution point as well when it comes to it. Sent from my POCOPHONE F1 using Tapatalk

  36. There is just something about organics that make buds so tasty. There is no better organic growing than in a "Living Soil" teaming with beneficial Bacteria, Mycorrhizal Fungi, and everything else your Cannabis needs to grow the dankest of bud. And best of all, you don't need any other nutrients at all for the entire life cycle of the plant. When I decided to go a full on organic route, I spent hours and hours searching the net for formulations, that are firstly effective, and secondly, has ingredients that are easily obtainable in South Africa from a sustainable source, and affordable.

  37. Still haven't gotten round to the farm. This weekend seems clear of cold fronts. Got a really smelly GTH male though. Being transplanted tomorrow and going into 12/12.

  38. Due for a small update. Sadly none of my GTH seeds sprouted, but I'm hoping for a female clone from the source to include in this winter's run. 11 May Well over 200 of my F4 beans sprouted on a farm neither here nor there. Haven't been to visit since, but going through this week. So excited to just get out there and away from the suburbs. I want to go and remove all the males and do some other thinning. All these little ones have since been planted in the ground and well on their way. Will update on the visit. Then I have 2 of my F4 girls here, chosen from 20.

  41. Quite the thread revival, I know. So who all is using this soil and how is it performing? Do you just chuck the ingredients together in a big bin and close it and leave it outside? Does it need sun or heat? Any modifications to the recipe? Freedom Farms soil has become popular, perhaps that's instead or? Sent from my Redmi Note 7 Pro using Tapatalk

  42. Hi AJ, I use both when i want to grow out a plant, and not really have to feed it anything throughout the grow. By adding the supersoil to the bottom, and the promix to the top, allows the younger plants to establish their root systems, and grow into the supersoil to get the nutes. Planting a seed/seedling into supersoil directly will kill it. You can also only use the promix if you are going to suppliment with organic feeding. You can add perlite to the supersoil if you'd like more air. Agricultural lime is dolomite lime.

  43. Going and sampling soil from the mountains and forests are a very good way to ensure that you have a soil that is teaming with local strains of fungi and bacteria, and will help a lot with immune stability of your plants. Always look for patches where the humus is a few centimeters thick, and sample from there.
