‘So, like… (puff, puff, pass), this Harry Anslinger dude was a total money-grubbing douche, okay….’ 4- When I spark it up, it sparks up my creativity in return. Although it may not be true for everyone that consumes cannabis, I find that partaking in a couple puffs (or several) produces innovativeness and creative vision. And I’m sure I could find a few intelligent tokers that would be willing to concur with that sentiment. One factor that may need to be considered when trying to decide as to whether or not consuming weed generates creative thinking is the strain in which you ingest.
My personal preference in regards to types of cannabis is Indica or Indica-dominant, so the whole ‘Sativa is the variety that triggers creativity’ is null and void. I’ve found that Sativa and Sativa-dominant strains actually send my mind racing to the point where I can’t focus, which is exactly the opposite effect that I desire when blazing on some fine bud. I think this is another situation where self-experimentation is in order, don’t you? ‘Let’s see here (puff, puff, no one to pass to, so keep puffing it yourself), the Sativa made me want to clean house and run around the neighborhood, but the Indica helped me relax and focus on my video game skills. Hmm?’ 5- It helps me sleep, and enhances my dreams. Are you one of those folks that can recall their dreams in great detail? Which seems like it would make the act of sleeping quite boring, right? But as a person that does dream on a nightly basis, I can avow that going to bed medicated does indeed intensify my dreams.
In fact, it magnifies my dreams to the point that they seem somewhat realistic in essence, which can turn out to be good or bad, all depending what you had to eat before you hit the hay. And when it comes to using cannabis as a sleep aid, I’ve yet to find a better alternative, manmade or otherwise. Something tells me that would be an entirely different story if I favored Sativas over Indicas, but I won’t be conducting any personal appraisals on that subject anytime soon, so again, you’ll need to conduct your own single-subject research. The Sativas had me staring at the clock all night and thinking about my taxes, but the Indicas made me sleep like a hollowed out log and allowed me to wake up feeling rested.’ There are a superabundance of rationales as to why I possess deep affection for dank bud. So abundant, in fact, that my list of grounds for loving maryjane could easily fill this entire website. So what are some of the reasons that you love weed to the extreme that you do? I’d be willing to bet my list is longer than yours. Cannabis crops are some of the most versatile crops on the planet, capable of adapting to almost any growers needs thanks to the amazing variation in how long some strains take to grow versus others. You can find spectacular autoflowering strains that are ready to cut in just about two months of cultivation, and then you can also find seasonal strains that need certain photoperiods (periods of light and darkness) to grow and flower. Today we’re going to talk about some tips and tricks to grow gigantic marijuana plants; to do this they’ll need a longer growth period and a whole lot of care, but you’ll be rewarded with the biggest specimens that you have ever seen. Many growers have already seen astonishing images in which American growers are standing beside incredible 4 or 5 meter tall marijuana trees with an enormously dense branch structure that end up looking like big green balls . This phenomenon is quite typical in Humboldt’s seed catalogue and other American seed banks, as well as professional growers books and of course thousands of images and videos online. Choosing a strain with a decent growth level is essential because your plants entire structure will depend on this specific characteristic. Sativa strains tend to have a much larger growth as well as a larger distance between nodes and a thinner, taller structure. Indicas, however, grow into more manageable plants with shorter distances between nodes, more branches and a stronger central stem. Indica and sativa hybrids obviously have characteristics from both genotypes , although depending on the strains used to create the hybrid and the percentage of indica vs sativa, they’re more likely to have certain characteristics. Generally, the biggest specimens will have a sativa percentage of over 60%; if the plant is indica-dominant then the specimens will be more compact but with a larger branch structure. Growth timing is definitely a key element when trying to grow large plants due to the fact that once your plants move on to the flowering stage, they tend to get a lot bigger. This means that the bigger your plant grows during its growth stage, then the more they will develop during the flowering stage. For outdoor crops, growers have to depend on the seasons and the climate for their plants to switch periods, whereas indoors the grower decides when to change the light period , allowing him or her to choose how big their plants should grow. This means that indoor growers can play around with the number of plants and the timing of their crops; with a shorter growth period you can have more plants. This is how SoG systems were born; cuttings don’t need a growth phase and seeds only need two growth weeks. There are also growers that like to fill their crop area with just one plant , giving it an enormous growth period as well as a large flowerpot; this makes for plants that would leave outdoor growers astonished . Some seed banks keep mother plants for over 10 years, so we know that you can give your plants all the growth time you want and rest assured that they won’t die (if you take care of them properly).
So, now that you know that you can grow plants indoors for as long as you want , and that outdoors marijuana plants grow a larger branch structure , the question is: What would happen if you let your plants have a long growth period and then took them outside to flower ? When you grow your plants indoors and then take them outdoors they go from getting 18h of light a day to getting a lot less, so they immediately begin flowering .
If it’s still growth season your plants will begin budding but then they’ll revegetate , losing potency in the process which is something you want to avoid, especially with a crop like this that takes a lot more work. However, if you take your plant outdoors to flower when the sun begins to set earlier , your plants will begin flowering normally and should be ready around the same time they would be ready if you had planted them outside from the beginning. The obvious difference is that these plants will be much larger and have a much higher yield ; by using this method you can get plants that are over 4m tall.
