  1. Don't intake THC for a month and it should disappear from your system. Impossible for me to do tho..
  2. I don't usually reply in breeders topics, but I will have to say this since the opportunity has presented itself, I was gifted 2 packs of 10 Tortoni F1s, gave 15 to my friend for his outdoor and kept 5 for myself, he went germinated his and I germinated mine... out of those 20..20 germinated. That's 100% germination, to add all the females had some of the most beautiful and frosty buds coming out of those plants and not to kiss ass here because anyone who has followed my grows will know which breeder I stand by but 1 has to say @Totemicthat's impressive
  3. Far cry 6 is got my attention lately. If you a fan of far cry 3 than far cry 6 will keep you entertained for abit
  4. My own mix of Organic coco is the only way for me
  5. Effects of the Combinations of Rhizobacteria, Mycorrhizae, and Seaweed and Supplementary Irrigation on Growth and Yield in Wheat Cultivars For anyone wanting to learn more on the effects of combining Rhizobacteria and Mycorrhizae for your grows heres a PDF for a good read, its obliviously using wheat but i would believe to get a similar effect on cannabis PDF HERE
  6. My question is what type of microbes are those brands using, for example Biodyne and moss blend by umya do not state anything besides dosages and I've used a few others with no mention either. I can see how redosing can be a waste in soil and a thriving environment. But what about soiless? Will it than be beneficial to inoculate or is it possible to maintain a healthy environment for the microbes to thrive?
  7. So ive already touched on mycorrhizae in previous posts and its benefits are already well documented basically alover the net. But there is anther beneficial fungi/bacteria/microbe that is well documented and being used in farms growing other plants and vegs but we do not hear or see it being used as much in the cannabis scene and thats Rhizobacteria. Its true that all soils have some % of Rhizobacteria but could there be something as too much or even better how do we introduce it and its benefits into a soilless setup such as coco? Well after a couple of days of research i was convinced to try a product called Rhizo PGPR and will begin inoculating it in my grows from now on But what is Rhizobacteria you may ask. Well below is an article taken from Zamnesia & Frontiersin which better explains the benefits of it on many different plants aswel as on cannabis which is what we all looking for "Cannabis growers often associate bacteria with plant diseases. However, some forms of these microbes dramatically improve plant health and performance. Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria enhance almost every aspect of cannabis plant physiology, from nutrient uptake and pathogen defence to cannabinoid levels and drought resistance. Far from a lifeless substance, soil contains millions of microorganisms. While some of these small critters are a threat to the cannabis plant, many of them form alliances with the roots and boost plant growth, vitality, and yields. Various species of bacteria, fungi, and nematodes patrol the rhizosphere—the slither of soil that surrounds cannabis roots. Although we often associate these microbes with decomposition and decay, many of them actively promote growth. Cannabis plants are innately intelligent. They appear static to the human eye, but, in reality, they are constantly moving and have a lot of control over their environment. The herb essentially “farms” microbes in the soil. By releasing sugars into the rhizosphere, it attracts beneficial species of fungi and bacteria. In return for these tasty carbohydrates, the microbes mine the soil for nutrients and release growth-promoting plant hormones. Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are soil microbes that help to enhance cannabis cultivation. Learn how to harness these tiny members of the rhizosphere to achieve the biggest possible harvests. WHAT ARE CANNABIS PLANT GROWTH-PROMOTING RHIZOBACTERIA (PGPR)? Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria is a term that includes several species of soil bacteria that enhance cannabis plant health. The term “rhizo” relates to “roots”, referring to the location where these species choose to reside. What attracts PGPR to the roots? Compared to the bulk of the soil, the rhizosphere offers a rich source of nutrients that microorganisms are drawn to. Known as exudates, these sugar molecules are released by cannabis plants to attract beneficial microbes. Species of PGPR are divided into two main groups: symbiotic species and free-living species. Symbiotic species live inside plant tissue, where they swap beneficial chemicals with plant cells directly. Some species live in the space between plant cells, whereas others penetrate the cells and live inside of them. Others take things a step further by merging their biology with the plant, forming unique structures made of both plant and bacterial parts. In contrast, free-living rhizobacteria exist on the outside of roots, where they work to increase yields and protect plants from the stresses of flooding and disease. Free-living species colonise the outside of cannabis roots. They form patches of communities that cover anywhere between 15–40% of the root surface, clinging to root hairs and the gaps between cells. In the presence of enough nutrients, they cover the entire root surface and form a thick layer of bacteria. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RHIZOBACTERIA FOR CANNABIS GROWING? Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria boost cannabis plants in several ways. They help to enhance fertilisation, stimulate root growth, minimise plant stress, and even clean up the soil. Rhizobacteria also give cannabis plants a helping hand by defending against disease and assisting them in competing for nutrients. HOW DO RHIZOBACTERIA PROMOTE CANNABIS GROWTH? Growers can use PGPR to enhance the growth of their plants. Just as cultivators use different nutrients, training techniques, and lights in an attempt to boost yields, influencing the rhizosphere produces similar results. Some of the key ways in which rhizobacteria help to promote plant growth include: Growth hormones: PGPR produce several plant hormones that stimulate plant growth. These molecules drive plant development by promoting cell division and cell growth. Nutrient uptake: Rhizobacteria enhance the ability of cannabis plants to uptake nutrients. The plant relies on a fine balance of macro- and micronutrients to fuel growth, drive photosynthesis, and make other metabolic processes possible. Security: These helpful microbes also enable optimal plant growth through their “security services”. By preventing diseases from attacking the roots, they put an end to any attack that might slow down growth and threaten yields. Flower quality: Cannabinoids and terpenes make up the prized molecules within cannabis buds. By influencing nutrient movement and stress control, rhizobacteria increase these compounds and the overall holistic and recreational quality of cannabis flowers HOW DO RHIZOBACTERIA PROTECT CANNABIS PLANTS? Although kind to cannabis, PGPR wage war against other species. By fighting other microbes for resource dominance, they help cannabis plants to stay healthy and strong. Aside from fending off living organisms, they also embolden plants against the elements and adverse weather conditions. Rhizobacteria are truly invested in the health of their host cannabis plant, as it secures them a steady source of food and shelter. In return, they offer protection against various threats. Here's how PGPR protect your weed plants: Produce antibiotics: Not all bacteria in the rhizosphere work well with cannabis. Many species pose a threat to the roots—perhaps the most vital aspect of the entire plant’s anatomy. By manufacturing antibiotic compounds, PGPR kill off the bad guys. They lead plants into battle: As well as producing their own pathogen-killing molecules, rhizobacteria prompt plants to produce their own. By triggering a state of systemic resistance, they signal the cannabis plant to produce its own metabolites designed to fight off pathogens and parasites. Environmental defence: Cannabis plants produce the best results when treated to a stable environment. Sudden extremes, including surges in temperature, droughts, and floods, can negatively impact cannabis, damage plants, and stunt growth. Rhizobacteria increase tolerance and resilience in plants and help them deal with these threats much better. Powdery mildew: This fungal disease plagues growing operations every year, resulting in contaminated flowers. PGPR defend against this crop-destroying fungus. HOW AND WHEN TO APPLY RHIZOBACTERIA? Growers can protect their crop and enhance yields by using PGPR to inoculate their plants. Farmers across the world are starting to use rhizobacteria as a biofertiliser to replace conventional pesticides and chemical fertilisers. Cultivators can inoculate their plants at several stages throughout the growing cycle. Inoculating seeds with cannabis-compatible rhizobacteria will give your seedlings the best start in life. Simply add around 1g of rhizobacteria into the hole when sowing seeds. If you've already started growing and want to take advantage of these microorganisms, use the same product to make a soil drench to inoculate the root system. Thoroughly mix 1g of rhizobacteria per litre of water. Apply this formula once every 21 days to keep the rhizosphere thriving with beneficial life. You can also include rhizobacteria in your transplanting strategy to help plants recover from the stress faster. Sprinkle 1g into the hole before introducing your plant to its new home. More on the subject can be read HERE SO! Has anyone ever used RHIZOBACTERIA especially in a soilless medium and if so was there any visual improvements?

  11. INTRODUCTION: ROSIN 101 The best solventless extractions require the best cannabis for starting material. Whether it’s bubble hash, dry sift, or rosin, premium cannabis concentrates are derived from cannabis flowers of superior genetics grown in the ideal environment, and harvested at peak ripeness. The process of creating cannabis concentrates with solventless extraction methods (without the use of solvents like butane or CO2) amplifies the existing quality of the cannabis from which it’s derived. Solventless extraction isn’t magic, and it won’t transform mediocre cannabis into a remarkable concentrate. The starting material directly determines the end product. Therefore, cultivating, harvesting, and preparing exceptional cannabis is key to making exceptional solventless extractions. The two main categories of solventless cannabis extractions are rosin and hash. The two forms of hash include bubble hash and dry sift hash, both of which are composed mostly of trichome heads with very little plant material. Bubble hash is created using the ice water extraction method, while dry sift is created by sweeping dry cannabis material over a series of mesh screens. Rosin can be made using flower, bubble, or dry sift as starting material, and the resulting rosin is known as either flower rosin, bubble hash rosin (or simply hash rosin), or sift rosin. Flower rosin is the fastest and most straightforward concentrate to produce, while hash rosin is generally considered the highest quality. Making rosin begins with loading cannabis starting material inside nylon filter bags, pre-pressing it with an aluminum mold, enclosing it within a folded piece of parchment paper, and placing it between rosin press plates where heat and pressure can be applied. The press gives us the right amount of pressure needed to extract rosin, while the heated plates provide high temperatures needed to liquefy the cannabis trichomes that contain all of the therapeutic compounds we’re aiming to extract. Several types of presses and rosin press plates are used in a variety of configurations, from hydraulic to pneumatic presses with either caged or uncaged plate set ups. Even a hair straightener will work for pressing rosin! We’ll outline the specific heat and pressure settings applied to each type of starting material in this overview. Pre-press molds are often used to compress the starting material inside the rosin filter bags before extraction. The loaded rosin bags are placed inside a folded sheet of parchment paper, which catches and holds the rosin as it’s extracted between the heated press plates. The rosin is then collected from the parchment paper with a rosin stamp or dab tool.

Just as the quality of cannabis starting material determines the quality of solventless extractions, genetics play a critical role in the outcome of a cannabis grow. While there are other impactful variables such as garden environment, plant genetics are the foundation of a high quality harvest. Selecting genetics known for producing copious amounts of resin is a good starting point . Specifically, flowers with an abundance of capitate stalked trichomes are what we’re aiming to cultivate, and some cultivars (strains/genetics) tend to produce more than others. Choosing seeds or clones that contain these genetics is the first decision to make when planning your operation. (10) Best Cannabis Strains for Pressing Rosin (11) Which Cannabis Strains Are Best for Washing Bubble Hash? (12) Why Is Pheno-Hunting Important for Rosin? GROWING ENVIRONMENT The right genetics can only express their most spectacular traits if given an optimum environment in which to flourish. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor grow space, factors like light, temperature, humidity, and nutrients will determine the outcome of the harvest. The best genetics placed in a subpar growing environment will never live up to their potential. Thoughtful design and configuration, intentional selection of equipment, and meticulous attention to detail are components of a quality garden. At the same time, nature knows what’s best. We are facilitating growth, not playing God. The idea is to create the best space for the cannabis plant to do its thing. (13) Cultivating Soil for Maximum Terpene Expression (14) Guide To Pressing Rosin for the Outdoor Grower (15) Do I Need To Grow My Own Cannabis To Press Rosin? HARVEST AT PEAK RIPENESS Good genetics placed in the ideal growing environment will produce resin-packed buds at harvest time. But how can you determine the best time to harvest your flowers? The answer lies in the trichomes. Those tiny translucent globes convey peak levels of ripeness based on their coloration, starting first as completely clear, then moving to milky and finally amber-colored . When the trichome heads are predominantly amber, this signals the peak of resin production and the height of therapeutic compounds within. Using a magnifier like a jeweler’s loupe is the best way to peer into the world of trichomes and gage maximum ripeness. (16) Guide To Trichomes and Solventless Extraction (17) How To Harvest Cannabis at Peak Trichome Ripeness FLOWER ROSIN, SIFT ROSIN, OR BUBBLE HASH ROSIN? Before harvest day it’s important to decide how you intend to use the flowers. Assuming that solventless extraction is the goal, you have a few different options. Flower rosin can be produced using air dried flowers and requires less processing than dry sift or bubble hash rosin. If flower rosin is the aim, you simply need to harvest and dry the flowers, then press them using heated rosin press plates. Flower rosin is a great option if you’re just getting started in rosin and want to learn the mechanics and general workflow, without having to first process the flowers into hash. If hash rosin is your objective, the harvested flowers need to be processed into hash, which is either dry sift or bubble (bubble hash being the more pure of the two types of hash). Dry sift hash is made by sweeping dried, trichome-rich cannabis material over a set of mesh sieving screens, employing the force of gravity to separate trichomes from the rest of the material. Bubble hash involves a bit more complexity than dry sift, and is made using a process called ice water extraction. Ice water extraction uses cold water and a liquid vortex to separate trichomes from the remaining plant material. Both flower rosin and dry sift rosin require dried cannabis flowers as starting material, so hanging cannabis to dry immediately after harvest is the way to go. Although dry sift hash needs to be made with dry cannabis material, bubble hash can be made with either dry or “fresh frozen” cannabis. Fresh frozen cannabis refers to material that’s been frozen immediately after harvest to preserve the best qualities of the living plant, such as terpene content. Fresh frozen material is only used in the production of bubble hash and bubble hash rosin. Rosin filter bags hold the cannabis starting material and provide filtration while heat and pressure are applied in between the rosin press plates. As the rosin is squeezed from the material it passes through the filter bags before oozing out onto the parchment paper. Unwanted material is contained within the rosin bags, while pure rosin flows through. (18) Top 3 Reasons Why Solventless Is Superior (19) Flower Rosin vs Hash Rosin (20) Average Rosin Yields from Various Cannabis Starting Material FLOWER ROSIN Drying Flowers for Flower Rosin If pressing flower rosin is your objective, drying your freshly-harvested crop is the first step . Wet cannabis can’t be pressed into rosin, so hanging the flowers upside down to dry anywhere from several days up to two weeks will bring the material to the proper moisture level. In preparation for rosin production, cannabis flowers should maintain 60-65% relative humidity (RH). The best way to monitor moisture levels is with a digital hygrometer and a glass mason jar. Place the buds and a digital hygrometer within a sealed mason jar, and wait until the reading stabilizes. If the buds are showing RH over 65% then keep drying. If under 60%, you can rehydrate the material in preparation for rosin production . (21) What Is the Best Environment for Hang Drying Cannabis Flowers? (22) How To Rehydrate Cannabis Flowers That Are Too Dry for Pressing Rosin Pressing Flower Rosin Once the buds have achieved optimum moisture content, it’s time to prep them for rosin production. Selecting the correct rosin filter bags and setting the correct temperature and pressure outputs at your rosin press plates are the leading variables of the process. 90-120 micron rosin filter bags provide the ideal filtration power for pressing flower rosin. Whole buds should be broken up into smaller, popcorn-sized pieces by hand, not ground into a powder with a grinder. Regardless of the starting material you’re using, the rosin filter bag should be packed tightly to avoid empty spaces and large gaps within the material. 180-210 degrees Fahrenheit at 650-1000 PSI is the recommended range for pressing flower rosin. Note that pressure readings on your rosin press may not be the amount of pressure that’s actually being applied to your starting material at the bag. Calculating Platen PSI for your specific set up will help ensure accuracy. (23) How To Find the Best Flower for Pressing Rosin (24) What Micron Do I Use? (25) How To Press Flower Rosin Starter Guide (26) Top 5 Rosin Pressing Tips for Flower (27) How To Calculate Platen PSI DRY SIFT ROSIN Making Dry Sift Hash Dry sift is a form of solventless cannabis concentrate that involves separating trichome heads from cannabis plant material and isolating them for collection using a set of mesh sieving screens. Resin-coated cannabis flower or trim leaf is whisked back and forth over a series of stackable screens composed of varying pore sizes. While plant material is contained on the upper screens, trichome heads are small enough to pass through for collection on the lower screens. Dry sift can be made using a steady, sweeping motion of your hands across the surface area of the screens, or with the help of a card (e.g. a credit card) to move and gently agitate the cannabis over the mesh filter. This technique is known as “carding”. (28) What Is Dry Sift? (29) The Ultimate Guide To Dry Sift Cleaning Dry Sift Hash with Static Tech Trichome heads that collect on top of sifting screens are often intermingled with a noticeable amount of tiny plant particles that also made their way through the mesh filter. The most desirable hash contains trichome heads exclusively, without the presence of other plant material. It’s difficult to remove plant material from dry sift hash, but it can be done with a technique known as Static Tech. There are various forms of static tech, but the basic principle involves the use of static electricity to separate trichomes from plant material in such a way that the trichomes can be collected and the remaining material can be discarded. Pressing Sift Rosin While dry sift can be consumed on its own, most extractors prefer to press dry sift into rosin. Hash rosin that’s been pressed from dry sift is called sift rosin, and it’s generally considered a step up in quality from flower rosin. As with pressing flower rosin, selecting the correct micron rosin filter bag plus temperature and pressure settings at the rosin press are the top variables to consider. Smaller micron rosin filter bags can accommodate dry sift, so 37-75 micron bags are generally suited for pressing sift, depending on the purity. In general, the more pure the source material you’re pressing, the smaller the micron size rosin bag you need. Double-bagging is also a good idea with pressing both sift and bubble hash rosin. The volume of rosin outflow from the sift and bubble hash is generally higher than that from flower rosin, and the additional reinforcement of a second bag helps to prevent blowouts. A larger micron such as 120 or 160 is often used as the outer bag, but the recommended 37-75 microns for sift will also work doubled-up. If using different microns, the larger micron should be on the outside. 140-200 degrees Fahrenheit with Platen PSI between 500-1500 are good ranges in which to experiment with sift rosin. BUBBLE HASH ROSIN Washing Bubble Hash Bubble hash is the highest quality of hash, known as bubble hash because of the small bubbles that appear on the surface when exposed to heat . Bubble hash is rated on a scale of one to six stars, 6-star hash being the most pure and highest-quality. 5 and 6-star hash is also known as full melt hash, because it will fully burn away and leave no waxes or residuals behind on a nail or bowl when smoked. Making bubble hash is often referred to as “washing” hash, and involves a process known as Ice Water Extraction . Cannabis material (either flowers or trichome-covered trim leaves) is mixed in a bucket with ice water, stirred together with a circular motion to create a vortex in the water. This vortex, coupled with the ice cold temperature of the water, allows the trichome heads to break away from their stalks. This slurry of ice water, plant material, and trichomes is then poured through a series of filter bags, also called Bubble Wash Bags, through which the trichomes heads are separated from the remaining material. While tap water is probably the most convenient water to obtain, it’s not the best. Use RO water when washing hash for the best results. Each wash bag in the series contains a different size of filter screen, ranging in pore size from 220 to 25 microns. The filters which most closely match the size of full trichome heads will collect the highest grades of hash. Filters larger than trichomes catch and hold plant material that can be removed from the batch, while filters smaller than trichomes catch lesser-qualities of hash containing trichome stalks, broken heads, and tiny pieces of plant material. After the ice hash water slurry is poured through the filters, the wash bags are removed from the work bucket one by one and gently scraped with a cold metal spoon for the hash that’s collected on the screen. 120, 90, 75, and 50 micron wash bags usually collect the purest hash, composed almost exclusively of trichome heads with minimal contamination. (30) The History of Bubble Hash (31) How To Wash Bubble Hash (32) Top 20 Best Tips for Washing Bubble Hash (33) Why Is RO Water Best for Washing Bubble Hash? (34) What Is the Purpose of Using Multiple Bubble Wash Bags? (35) Best Qualities for Bubble Wash Bags Drying Bubble Hash Drying the hash that’s collected from the wash bags is a critical step that can make or break the entire process . Wet hash invites microbial growth like mold, which will completely ruin the product, rendering it unusable. As the wet hash is scraped from the filter screens, the trichome heads stick together in an amorphous glob, somewhat resembling a loose and extremely wet pancake batter. This patty of hash can be dried using various methods, the most effective of which is freeze drying. Freeze drying utilizes the process of sublimation coupled with a vacuum chamber to quickly and thoroughly dry the hash with minimal exposure to oxygen. Freeze dryers are advanced pieces of equipment that are often used by commercial processors. The cost of freeze dryers can be prohibitive to in-home extractors and casual hobbyists. It just depends on your budget! Air drying hash is a fine alternative to freeze drying. To air dry hash, immediately freeze the wet hash patty for 24 hours, or until it’s frozen into a solid block. Then take the frozen blob of hash and rub it back and forth across a kitchen sieve or strainer, which breaks the hash into smaller pieces. The resulting is a coarse powder or sand-like consistency in the hash, allowing it to dry out evenly. Without breaking the hash down into smaller pieces like this, moisture will get stuck inside the middle of the hash patty and harbor microbial growth. Sieve the wet hash over a piece of cardboard lined with parchment paper, and allow it to air dry in a cool, dry, dark space, or inside a refrigerator, until it’s completely dry to the touch. This can take a week or more. Squeeze a piece of the hash and feel for any moisture on your fingertips. When no moisture is present, the bubble hash is ready to go. (36) Best Ways To Dry Bubble Hash (37) How Does a Freeze Dryer Work? Pressing Bubble Hash Rosin 3 and 4-star hash is ideal for pressing into rosin. 1 and 2-star is better suited for edibles, and 5 and 5-star can be dabbed as it is. 25-37 microns is the recommended filter size for rosin bags when pressing bubble hash. Bubble hash is loaded into the rosin bags the same way as sift and flower, packed tightly to eliminate empty pockets within the material, but not so tightly that rosin cannot flow out from the center. It should feel dense and very compressed when squeezed between the fingers. For both flower, sift, and bubble hash, pre-press molds help to further compact and prime the material for extraction. As with dry sift, double-bagging for bubble hash is helpful in preventing blowouts due to the high volume of rosin that flows quickly from the hash under heat and pressure. A larger micron such as 120 or 160 is often used as the outer bag, but the recommended 25-37 microns for sift will also work doubled-up. If using different microns, the larger micron should be on the outside. 160-190 degrees Fahrenheit with Platen PSI between 350-750 are good ranges in which to experiment with bubble hash rosin. And with any type of rosin extraction, be sure to start with a lower PSI and gradually increase to full pressure over time . (38) How Hash Is Rated (39) Top 10 Hash Rosin Pressing Tips CURING ROSIN Rosin is ready to consume immediately after production, but a curing process can help enhance the flavor and stabilize consistency. Curing rosin involves the use of an airtight glass jar, such as a mason jar. This approach to curing rosin is known as Jar Tech, and there are two types of Jar Tech: Warm Curing and Cold Curing. Warm Curing involves exposing the rosin to temperatures anywhere between 90 and 135 degrees Fahrenheit. This can be accomplished in an oven, or even with a heating mat similar to what is used for warming cannabis cuttings. Cold curing is often done at cool room temperatures, in the 60-degree Fahrenheit range. Cold curing often preserves more of the volatile terpenes in rosin than warm curing. With both types of curing, keeping the lid sealed for the duration prevents terpenes from evaporating into the air. The lid can be “burped” intermittently during the cure, and some extractors like to “whip” the rosin as well. Terpenes often separate out naturally during the cure, and whipping helps to reintegrate the liquid terpenes back into the rosin. (40) How To Jar Tech Rosin (41) Cold Curing vs Warm Curing Rosin (42) Top 10 Warm Curing Rosin Tips (43) Top 10 Cold Curing Rosin Tips (44) What Are the Benefits of Whipping Rosin? STORING ROSIN Rosin can be stored for many months in glass containers with an airtight seal. Using glass to store rosin is key, since glass doesn’t interact with terpenes in the way that plastic or silicone does. Both plastic and silicone as susceptible flake away and leach into the rosin over time, as terpenes are actually a natural form of solvents. To preserve the natural state of the rosin, be sure to only store it in glass for the long term. Store rosin in a cool, dark, and dry environment. If storing in the refrigerator or freezer, be sure to allow the jar to come to room temperature when removing for use first before cracking open the lid. And wipe away any condensation that forms inside the glass, in order to prevent moisture from getting into the rosin. Bubble hash and sift can be stored following these same principles. Bubble Hash can also be heated and rolled into a Temple Ball for long term storage and aging. (45) How To Properly Store Rosin (46) What Is a Bubble Hash Temple Ball? (47) What Is the Purpose of Aging Bubble Hash? CONSUMING ROSIN Rosin is most commonly dabbed with a dab rig and heated nail or bowl. To optimize for the most flavorful smoke, use lower temperatures at the nail. If you prefer the ease and convenience of vape pens, rosin can be used to make vape cartridges. This requires extra steps to decrease the viscosity of rosin, but it can be done. Rosin can also be used for making edibles or other infusions, like MCT Oil capsules. You can even add rosin to joints for enhanced flavor and potency. (48) How To dab Rosin (49) How To Make Vape Cartridges with Your Rosin (50) Best Ways to Use Rosin CONCLUSION Unlike cannabis concentrates that utilize solvents for production (e.g. CO2 in closed-loop systems), solventless extracts like bubble hash and rosin are safe and easy to produce right from home, with minimal investment in equipment and starting material. Growing your own cannabis allows you to produce quality starting material and is often the most economical way to create a steady flow of top shelf cannabis concentrates. Solventless concentrates capture the essence of the plants from which they’re produced, delivering a pure, potent, and flavorful experience. Getting started is the hardest part. Once you start gaining some hands-on experience, you’ll quickly learn as you go and improve your process and your results. Take good notes along the way, learning from both your successes and so-called failures. What are you waiting for? Start your solventless journey and start rosin pressing today! Reference
  12. Welcome man, you at the right place
  13. Yip like everyone mentioned, your plants look good But as @Batistamention, those leaves look abit dark green with slight clawing which points to too much nitrogen
  14. Which videos are you looking for? My method is basically the same thing but i do it abit different and usually the whole stem from bottom to top, hard to explain without actually demonstrating it. To many good videos to pin point one so below are the youtube channels for Jungle boys & High Rise Jungle Boys High Rise Tv
  15. Nice share, Ive followed Kushman for some years and what an absolute legend he is. His technique is one ive tried a few times but will be honest didnt find much of a difference between the traditionally supper crop, i did how ever developed my own method based on kushmans chiropractor. Jungle boys are anther group in a league of their own and I recommend watching some of their videos, they have a few good tips aswel , anther is those crazy boys from High Rise / High Rise Tv, they are doing some crazy things aswel (mostly for those who want some ideas on how to turn this into a business). Always educational and a great source of inspiration
  16. I agree probly shitty weed that wasn't flushed... Or... It could be spider mites those lil f**kers light up and pop like that aswel 🤣
  17. That's just how business works. And there is a lot of things going on behind doors that people don't even know about. Weed is already being sold to pharmaceutical companies for testing and over sea dispensaries and people have no clue that this is actually already happing and with it still being illegal. What my friends company is doing is just hitting that same market "legitimately". But do you think they are really going to be the "first"? You need to drop at least 5M to build facility, everything needs to be to the T with requirements and safety, than you need a head pharmist in charge of all operations and product testing (lab testing not smoking test) all that must be done and obtained before officials come on site and approve it which than after you obtain a license to grow. Not everyone has that type of money But there's also a big number of facilities that are not licensed and are all operating. A big number actually. And guess whos getting a big cut? I won't go to into much detail on how I know this. And the truth is there is no place in the market for us home growers, unless you doing black market, start your own grow facility or know someone in a high position in those grow ops that can aprrove you as a grower and even that you won't sell your stuff. You will grow for them.. So as for home growers to grow and sell their stuff we most probably won't ever see that because than "someone" won't be getting a cut that way
  18. Oh yes im extremely excited for this since i personally know the head pharmacist of the company. They do have everything in order and do encourage anyone to buy shares once they hit the market
  19. Same here brother, im still learning how to germinate. Sounds like a good experience tho
  20. We cant stress this enough. You can get a decent QB for around 3k but i feel that sooner or later you going to want to upgrade your lights with more power so I would look at the lights from the 5 - 12 K range. But it all depends on your budget and the nice thing is you can always add more to your grow, i wouldnt get anything less than 200W tho
  21. I would recommend to wash & buffer your coco regardless if you purchased a "washed and buffered" coco. As @PsyCLownmentioned wouldn't flush with plain water, a very low nute dosage probably a quarter of the recommended dosage will get you around 200 - 250 ppm if using RO water, that will do the trick.
