How to tell whether your plants are male or female

July 31st, 2006

As in the human world there is a big difference between a male and female marijuana plant. As you can see from these pics, the male plants pre-flower looks like balls and the female plant has hairs.

Gallery 031

This is a male plant - note the ball-like nodes on the stem.

Gallery 034

This is a female plant. The hairs can be seen on the stems.

It is important to kill all males as soon as you can identify them (unless you are using them to breed).

More pics to come in a few days.

I was gonna blog everyday…….

July 12th, 2006

In the words of the song…

“I was gonna work on my website…but then I got high!

I was gonna blog every day…….but then I got high!

I couldn´t make this rhyme and I know why……

Because I´m high, because I´m high, because I´m high…..la la la la la la!”

Sun is shining, weather is sweet (lol) and it´s too damn hot to be indoors. Normal service will resume……………….emmmm…….soon!

The plants are all happy out in the sun, getting bigger every day and ready to flower. I´ll get some pics up in the gallery of the outdoor grow, and I might even get another post done before the end of the week.

Like any substance, marijuana can be abused. The most common problem attributed to marijuana is frequent overuse, which can induce lethargic behavior, but does not cause serious health problems. Marijuana can cause short-term memory loss, but only while under the influence. Marijuana does not impair long-term memory. Marijuana does not lead to harder drugs. Marijuana does not cause brain damage, genetic damage, or damage the immune system. Unlike alcohol, marijuana does not kill brain cells or induce violent behavior. Continuous long-term smoking of marijuana can cause bronchitis, but the chance of contracting bronchitis from casual marijuana smoking is minuscule. Respiratory health hazards can be totally eliminated by consuming marijuana via non-smoking methods, i.e., ingesting marijuana via baked foods, tincture, or vaporizer. A 1997 UCLA School of Medicine study (Volume 155 of the American Journal of Respiratory & Critical Care Medicine) conducted on 243 marijuana smokers over an 8-year period reported the following: “Findings from the long-term study of heavy, habitual marijuana smokers argue against the concept that continuing heavy use of marijuana is a significant risk factor for the development of chronic lung disease.” “Neither the continuing nor the intermittent marijuana smokers exhibited any significantly different rates of decline in lung function as compared with those individuals who never smoked marijuana.” The study concluded: “No differences were noted between even quite heavy marijuana smoking and nonsmoking of marijuana.

Marijuana does not cause serious health problems like those caused by tobacco or alcohol (e.g., strong addiction, cancer, heart problems, birth defects, emphysema, liver damage, etc.). Death from a marijuana overdose is impossible. In all of world history, there has never been a single human death attributed to a health problem caused by marijuana.

Three Sisters-unknown seeds

These marijuana plants were nicknamed the Three Sisters. The seeds came from friends and were not categorised so the strains are unknown. But the smoke was gooood!!

The plants were grown outdoors in pots in a nice sunny garden and did really well.

A Friends Outdoor Grow

June 19th, 2006

Friends summer garden

This is a photo of a friends summer outdoor marijuana grow. The garden contained over 40 different strains and, as he wasn´t very organized when he planted them, we were never sure which strains of marijuana was which!

It ended up as a plant sanctuary. People kept giving plants that they couldn´t look after for one reason or another, and they all got added to the mix.
