Instructions for Roll & Grow Flower Mats

Related Articles

If you weren’t born with “green fingers” but envy luscious flower gardens and containers that are ripe with tomatoes and herbs, do not despair. A roll-out flower mat may be your answer to making your garden magazine worthy. The beauty of roll-out flowers and rockets is in their simplicity. Just prepare the bed, lay out the material, water and wait – no more digging, fertilizing and mulching.

As long as you tend to the flower mat with ample water and the mat has the sun it needs, your garden will bloom. Whether your garden gets all-day sun, partial sun or shade, there’s a roll-out flower mat available to fit your needs.

Flower Mat Choices

Before heading to the local garden center or shopping online, determine what you want to grow, the amount of sun your patch gets and how large you want your garden to be. Don’t be shy about mixing and matching butterfly plants with wildflowers and lavender. All are available in either annual or perennial versions. Most come with a premixed selection of flowering seeds that provide a colorful and congenial mix.

If your plot is an irregular size, you can simply cut the flower mat to fit it. They are available in 2 x 4-feet rolls that are up to 10 feet in length. The mat can also be purchased or cut to fit a circular container, or you may wish to plant a flower rocket – a circular wad of material infused with seeds that explodes with vegetation once placed on top of the soil.

Gardening Made Simple

A flower mat is made of fiber or even paper woven with seeds infused within the layers. The mats are water retentive, and some even have moisture-retaining granules and fertilizer included in the mix. The mats serve as a weed barrier and are fully biodegradable, according to Garden Innovations. All have like-minded mixes of seeds that grow under the same conditions. Many do not bloom all at once, giving your garden a continuous season of colors and shapes.

Flower rockets and seed tapes also work in a similar fashion. The seeds are embedded into the fiber, and then it is rolled for easy handling and planting. Most are 2 to 3 inches high. Rockets need plenty of water, and the container should be placed according to the sunshine needs of the plant or flowers. When you plant the rocket, unfurl the bundle slightly to allow water to penetrate all the layers.

Preparing Your Flower Bed

Before using your flower mat or flower rocket, be sure the last frost is past and that the soil is warming. Preparation isn’t as intense as if you’re planting seeds, but the bed should be aerated and weeds and stones removed, suggests LoveToKnow. Water the bed and roll out the mat, patting it down so the bottom of the mat is against the soil. Leave several inches between the edge of the mat and the walkway.

Flower and vegetable rockets are even easier to plant, especially when you are container gardening. Follow the flower rocket instructions and fill the container 3/4 full with a good potting soil that meets the requirements of the rocket, dig a hole in the center of the soil and drop the coil into it. Add soil to the top and water well. Place the container in a sunny spot, water twice daily and continue watering until germination takes place. Cut back the water to a daily soak.

Watching and Waiting for Blooms

A tomato rocket is especially rewarding as you watch the small tomato flowers bud and then turn into ripe, red orbs. If necessary, stake or cage the growing vine to stabilize it and allow the tomatoes to ripen on the vine instead of drooping onto the soil. Other vegetables should be watched as well to prevent insect invasions. Be sure the mat and rocket are well-watered initially and given the appropriate sun conditions.

The flower mat, rocket or tape germinates within 10 to 25 days, with flowers appearing after six to seven weeks. Roll-out flowers are created so that not all flowers bloom at the same time, but once the season is in full swing, your flowers will be plentiful, the vegetables and herbs will be ready to be harvested and if you’ve chosen a hummingbird or butterfly garden, you’ll see nature attracted to your garden.

Instructions for Roll & Grow Flower Mats. Roll and grow flower mats, sometimes called seed blankets, contain soil and various flower seeds encased between a water retentive fiber and a fabric layer. After planting, the fabric slowly dissolves so the seeds can germinate while the fibrous layer decomposes and …

cal mag for weed

How to Prevent Nitrogen, Calcium & Magnesium Deficiencies (N & Cal-Mag)

Here’s the short-and-sweet, cheat-sheet version:

  • Bottom leaves are wilting, turning yellow, and falling off on their own
  • Plant is in the flowering stage
  • Leaves are dark green
  • Leaf tips are clawed

You may need a Cal-Mag supplement if…

  • Using reverse osmosis (RO) or soft water
  • Growing in coco coir
  • Your plant is showing a deficiency in Calcium (brown spots), Magnesium (lower leaves turn yellow between the veins) or Iron (bright yellow new growth) even though the pH is correct
  • Some growers always include a Cal-Mag supplement

Cannabis plants grow best when they’re getting the nutrients they need at the right time. Humans are the same way; if we’re missing certain vitamins it limits our growth when we’re young, and as we get older a lack of vitamins causes us to become sick in strange ways. Conversely, humans can also run into problems when they get an overabundance of vitamins.

Just like humans with vitamins, giving cannabis too high levels of nutrients can also cause problems. Like many things in life, cannabis plants (and plants in general) need a sort of balance.

Luckily, for the most part, cannabis plants are not too picky about nutrients despite what nutrient companies might have you believe.

Cannabis is generally not that picky about nutrients, except for a few…

Your cannabis plants can tolerate a wide range of environments, but there are a few nutrients which tend to cause problems more often than others. If these nutrients aren’t present in the correct amounts, it will affect your growth rates, as well as the quality and quantity of your buds.

That being said, most of the time, nutrient deficiencies are caused by the wrong root pH, not from needing more nutrients.

Most nutrient deficiencies are caused by the wrong root pH, but sometimes you actually need to add more or less of a particular nutrient for plants to grow their best.

A few major nutrients often cause problems that are not related to pH. Although pH can be the culprit, these nutrients often need to be provided in higher or lower doses to prevent deficiencies/toxicities.

Many growers need more or less of these nutrients for proper cannabis growth and bud formation:

Nitrogen (N)

First, there’s nitrogen…Nitrogen makes up more of your plant (as a percentage of dry mass) than pretty much any other nutrient or mineral, and it plays a hand in many plant processes.

Without an external source of nitrogen, your plant cannot grow past its first or second set of leaves. Nitrogen is that important to growth and photosynthesis.

With nitrogen, you can get both deficiencies and toxicities.

Here’s what to look out for…

Symptoms of Nitrogen Deficiency

Lower growth on the plant turns yellow and sometimes the yellow leaves get brown splotches.

Affected leaves become soft and start wilting.

Once the leaf has wilted, it sometimes dries up and turns crispy.

Leaves fall off the plant on their own; a gentle tug will remove affected leaves.

If left unchecked, a nitrogen deficiency will climb up the plant.

There are other nutrient problems that cause the lower leaves of a cannabis plant to turn yellow, but only a nitrogen deficiency causes leaves to become soft enough to fall off on their own.

It is normal to lose a few leaves to nitrogen deficiencies here and there, especially if you have a lot of lower leaves that are receiving low amounts of light. It’s also normal to see nitrogen deficiencies in the second half of the flowering stage as the plants are focusing on buds instead of leaves.

However, if you see a nitrogen deficiency early in the plant’s life, or if you’re losing tons of leaves at once, a nitrogen deficiency needs to be addressed immediately.

But it’s not just too little nitrogen that causes problems. Often, you’ll see problems caused by too much nitrogen; a nitrogen toxicity.

Symptoms of Nitrogen Toxicity

Leaves can become dark green and sometimes shiny looking

Tips of leaves are bent sharply down in what’s known as “the Claw.”

Buds grow slowly and final taste/smell is not as good as normal.

Leaf tips pointing down from nitrogen toxicity

Here’s what a nitrogen toxicity looks like during flowering. This much nitrogen during the budding stage will cause buds to develop more slowly and reduce overall yields. Plus, nitrogen-burnt buds tend to carry a “hay” or “fresh-cut grass” taste/smell even after being harvested and cured.

Many new growers accidentally give their plants too much Nitrogen, especially in the flowering stage

As a grower, you’re interested in how much nitrogen to give your plants at a specific time. The ratio of nitrogen to other nutrients has a huge effect on growth and bud formation.

Vegetative Stage – higher levels of nitrogen (pretty much any plant food will do)

Most complete plant foods that you get at a gardening store contain high levels of nitrogen (N). These nutrient systems tend to work well in the vegetative stage.

Some examples of cannabis-friendly one-part Vegetative nutrient systems…

Pretty much any complete plant food

Flowering Stage – lower levels of Nitrogen (use “Bloom” or Cactus nutrients)

It’s extra important to find a nutrient system with lower levels of nitrogen for the last part of your plant’s life. Many “Bloom” or “Flowering” style base nutrients are just the ticket.

Some examples of good one-part Flowering nutrient systems…

If you can’t order online and can’t find a good one-part base Bloom formula locally, you do have other choices. Though not an ideal choice, most Cactus plant foods will contain good nutrient ratios for growing cannabis during the budding stage. So in a pinch, you can use the cactus nutrients that can be found at most gardening stores.

Ok now that you’ve got a handle on nitrogen….

Cal-Mag: Calcium (Ca) & Magnesium (Mg)
and their cousin Iron (Fe)…

Calcium and magnesium often come together in a “Cal-Mag” supplement. These nutrients work together with iron in many plant processes, so iron is usually included in any Cal-Mag supplement.

Calcium, magnesium and iron are incredibly important to photosynthesis (making energy from light) and maintaining the structure of the plant. When things go wrong, you’ll often see multiple deficiencies at the same time while plant growth slows to a halt.

Why do these three specific nutrients almost always come packaged together? Calcium, magnesium and iron are closely related when it comes to nutrient uptake. If there’s a deficiency of one, it can trigger deficiencies of the others. So, iron is always provided in the right ratio of calcium-to- magnesium-to-iron, to help prevent an imbalance.

Here’s what to look out for…

Symptoms of Calcium Deficiency

Appears at the top of the plant – new growth on your plant is spotted and unhealthy

Growth slows to a crawl

New leaves develop small brown spots that never go away

Buds develop more slowly

With a Calcium deficiency, newer leaves look like this, with tons of little spots. This one was found near the top of the plant under the light

This lower fan leaf is mostly in the shade, but the calcium deficiency appears near the edges that are getting light. Calcium deficiencies often show up on parts of the leaves that are still actively growing.

Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency

Appears at the bottom of the plant on older growth (instead of on top like a calcium deficiency)

Leaves become light green between the veins and may develop small brown spots

Leaves eventually turn yellow and photosynthesis stops on the affected leaves

If left unchecked, a magnesium deficiency slowly kills bottom leaves, with problems climbing up the plant as magnesium is transferred from older leaves to newer parts of the plant

Leaves with a magnesium deficiency do not usually fall off the plant on their own (as they do with a nitrogen deficiency)

Symptoms of Iron Deficiency

All new growth on your plant will be yellow, sometimes bright yellow in extreme cases like below.

Growth is severely stunted on affected leaves.

Relatively rare compared to calcium and magnesium deficiencies, as they usually “take over” the plant.

This iron deficiency may have been caused by not enough calcium in the coco coir growing medium.

Do you need a “Cal-Mag” supplement?

Just because you’re seeing related deficiencies DOES NOT mean that you necessarily need a Cal-Mag supplement for your cannabis plants.

In addition to being at the heart of many plant problems, Calcium and Magnesium deficiencies are also some of the most commonly misdiagnosed problems by indoor cannabis growers. I’ve seen growers prescribe Cal-Mag for almost everything, from slow growth to nitrogen deficiencies.

Cal-Mag is only needed for certain situations, and there’s no reason to add extra Cal-Mag if you’re not actually trying to fix something. This isn’t a “supplement” that will make your plants grow faster. It’s only useful in preventing nutrient deficiencies. That being said, a lot of cannabis growers include Cal-Mag in every grow and it

These things can trigger what appear to be Cal-Mag deficiencies – fix the problem and many deficiencies will go away…

PH is too high or low

Uneven moisture levels in the soil or growing medium

Too-high levels of N-P-K nutrients

Anything that negatively affects the ability of nutrients to travel through the plant can trigger Cal-Mag related deficiencies, even when the minerals are actually there near the roots.

That’s why it’s important to maintain correct humidity levels, and avoid letting some parts of the growing medium get wetter than others (best results are achieved by making sure all parts of the growing medium are equally wet).

More importantly, when you’re faced with a deficiency, check the pH levels of your rootzone. A surprising number of issues with pH are misdiagnosed and end up needlessly costing growers money. These charts will tell you what range is needed to uptake each nutrient: Soil and Hydro

Be careful not to overfeed plants in an attempt to keep away deficiencies. When plants are being bombarded with too-high levels of nutrients it can cause several strange leaf problems, with apparent signs of calcium, magnesium and iron deficiencies commonly showing up.

But sometimes you’ll see Cal-Mag deficiencies even when taking care of all the above problems. And there are several situations where a Cal-Mag supplement becomes necessary for healthy cannabis growth.

Add extra Cal-Mag when…

Growing in coco coir (coco coir tends to lock out calcium for cannabis, so extra Cal-Mag should be provided for at least the first two weeks of cannabis growth, and possibly throughout the grow)

Using RO water (Reverse Osmosis water is completely pure, and doesn’t contain any extra calcium, magnesium or iron)

Using “soft” or heavily purified water

Cal-Mag deficiencies are still appearing even after taking care of all the environmental triggers listed above

That’s it! You are now versed on some of the most important cannabis nutrients! Following the tips in this article will help you achieve the fastest growth and biggest yields possible!

Nitrogen, calcium and magnesium cause the most common cannabis nutrient deficiencies. Learn what to look out for and how to protect your cannabis plants!

Deficiency and excess of Calcium in cannabis plants

Calcium and cannabis

First symptoms of Ca deficiency

Calcium is a very important secondary nutrient given the large amount of this element that the plant needs during its entire life cycle. From the very beginning, and already in the seed germination stage, calcium takes direct part in root development and protein synthesis. It’s absorbed by the roots in the form of Ca++ ion.

It also gives support to other elements that, when combined, participate in different metabolic processes such as the creation of vitamins – in this case, vitamin B12. These vitamins will join and form part of the cellular walls of the plant tissues, making them stronger to attacks from pathogens, and keeping their cells active and vital.

The role of calcium in cannabis plants

  • Calcium is necessary for the growth of the cell walls of the root system
  • It ‘s an immobile element
  • It enhances the decomposition process of organic matter, improving nutrient uptake by the plant
  • It acts as bridge between humus and nutrients

Symptoms of intermediate Ca deficiency

Calcium deficiency

Calcium is an element easily found in the soil, so due its high availability for the plants we usually don’t find imbalances of this component except in very acidic soils.

Deficiencies can normally be more present in hydroponic crops due to the use of inert substrates (coco-coir, clay pebbles, rock wool, mapito. ) or when we don’t use substrate, as is the case of aeroponic systems.

In these cases, we must check that the calcium intake of cannabis plants is correct to prevent deficiencies in the early stages. Many of the fertilisers that we can find on the market have calcium, but sometimes it isn’t enough to avoid deficiencies, particularly if you are using reverse osmosis water, which doesn’t contain nutrients.

In this case (RO) you will have to prepare the nutrient solution in a different way: before adding any other fertiliser, pour two parts of calcium per one of magnesium until reaching an EC value from 0.0 to 0.3-0.4.

Visible symptoms of calcium deficiency in cannabis plants

  • The youngest leaves of the plant are the first to be visibly affected
  • The growth of the upper part of the plant is slowed down
  • The root system is also affected, what reduces nutrient uptake
  • As the deficiency progresses, the youngest leaves turn yellowish and become deformed
  • Bud development is seriously reduced

To control the calcium deficiency we can perform foliar applications of Ca with a Ph of 7.2 directly on the affected leaves. We can also add calcium and magnesium to the nutrient solution, increasing the initial EC value in 0.2 points during about five days.

Calcium excess in cannabis plants

Serious Ca deficiency

The excess of calcium is difficult to detect and causes a lock-out of various nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, manganese and iron. In different hydroponic growing systems, and when there is calcium excess in the tank it comes in contact with the sulphur of the nutrient solution, this calcium precipitates and remains on the bottom of the tank.

In this circumstance, you will have to change the nutrient solution of the tank.

Calcium is an element that is directly related to the transpiration of plants. This transpiration control comes, in essence, from the roots and the stomata, which are located on the leaves. It can happen that the stomata are closed by an excess of heat, causing a superficial burn which could be confused with a symptom of calcium deficiency.

It should also be noted that, with a deficiency of this element, plants are always more susceptible to heat stress given that calcium contributes in the protein creation, which make plants more resistant to high temperatures.

How to supply cannabis plants with calcium

As we have already mentioned, if you are using osmosis water for watering your plants you should add calcium and magnesium before adding fertilisers to the nutrient solution. Since osmosis water doesn’t contain any nutrients, your initial EC value will always be 0.0.

Fertilisers for marijuana plants already contain the necessary micro-elements for the life of the plant, but there are nutrients such as calcium or magnesium which should be present in higher concentrations – especially at the early stages – to ensure that marijuana plants have everything they need to develop properly.

Tap water with an EC range of 0.3-0.4 is perfect, since this EC level is suitable to make the mix with fertilisers and ensure right amounts of Ca and Mg in the nutrient solution. It should be noted that, depending on the grown strain, it may be necessary to add extra calcium and magnesium during the flowering stage to prevent deficiencies from the 4th – 5th week, when plants are in full bloom.

In this case, this extra supply is important so, on the one hand, plants can reduce any kind of stress during the entire crop, and on the other hand we’ll harvest the best possible quality and quantity of buds. For these cases you can use Aptus Regulator during the entire crop, reducing the water needs of the plant to up to a 30% while making them more resistant to dehydration caused by high temperatures or periods of drought.

Is CBD oil legal in Nevada?

  4. Where to buy CBD in Nevada
  5. How to read CBD labels and packaging

Yes, most forms of cannabis are legal in Nevada, including hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) may be manufactured and sold if it complies with federal law that defines hemp, and with state law governing licensing and production.

Nevada legalized medical marijuana in 2000 with the Nevada Medical Marijuana Act, and in 2016 voters passed the Initiative to Regulate and Tax Marijuana, or Question 2, ushering in the era of legal adult-use marijuana.

In June 2019, Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak approved SB 209, which requires the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to develop and impose regulations on testing and labeling hemp products. The bill also restricts products containing hemp-derived CBD intended for human consumption unless they comply with the protocols and procedures regarding testing and labeling.

CBD oil is legal in Nevada if it doesn’t cross into questionable territory. A recent presentation by the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) stated “selling CBD oil that has not been combined with other food appears to be acceptable” as long as there are no medical claims associated with the product.

What is CBD?

CBD is the second-most-prominent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant after THC. Unlike THC, CBD is non-intoxicating and produces no high. The cannabinoid also shows potential as a therapeutic treatment, thanks to its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-anxiety, and seizure suppressing properties.

Why is CBD sometimes illegal?

Even though industrial hemp doesn’t produce enough THC to intoxicate consumers, all varieties of cannabis, including hemp, were swept into the category of Schedule 1 narcotics by the 1970 Federal Controlled Substances Act. The law defined cannabis as a substance with no accepted medical use, a likelihood for addiction, and a high potential for abuse.

Laws and regulations regarding CBD are evolving nationwide. Photo by: Gina Coleman/Weedmaps

In 2018, Congress passed the Farm Bill and legalized hemp cultivation, creating a pathway to remove cannabis from Schedule 1. The Farm Bill defined hemp as cannabis that contains less than 0.3% THC by weight and marijuana as cannabis with more than 0.3%.

Hemp-derived CBD was thus removed from its Schedule 1 designation, but CBD derived from the federally illegal marijuana plant is still considered federally illegal, too. Hemp is considered an agricultural commodity, but must be produced and sold under specific federal regulations, which were not finalized when hemp was legalized.

The Farm Bill also endowed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with the ability to regulate CBD’s labeling, therapeutic claims, and presence in foods or drinks. Despite the Farm Bill’s passage, the FDA has issued a directive that no CBD, not even hemp-derived, may be added to food or beverages or marketed as a dietary supplement.

As time passes, the FDA has begun re-evaluating that stance on CBD products but has yet to revise rules or specifically regulate CBD products. The FDA’s slow movement has created further confusion on the state level. The FDA has historically been strict when it comes to health claims or content that could be understood as medical advice, and makes no exception for CBD.

Hemp production and sale, including its cannabinoids and CBD specifically, remain tightly regulated federally. The Farm Bill provides that individual states may also regulate and even prohibit CBD cultivation and commerce. States may attempt to regulate CBD in food, beverage, dietary supplements, and cosmetic products independently of the FDA’s rules.

Nevada CBD laws

Nevada is developing regulations to comply with the 2018 Farm Bill. As the state works on new regulations to submit to the USDA, the industrial hemp program in Nevada will be “business as usual,” according to the agriculture department, with the state continuing to enforce current regulations and process registration for growers and handlers.

Licensing requirements for CBD

Licensing for hemp growers, producers, and handlers is managed by the NDA. Growers cannot be convicted of a drug-related felony within five years of the application date. If a grower meets all of the necessary application requirements, they are issued a license, which remains valid through the calendar year ending December 31. Once approved, growers must submit to a preliminary inspection of the site where hemp is being grown in the area specified in the application and a compliance inspection to analyze the crop for THC concentration within 15 days of harvest.

The current application fee for growers is a nonrefundable $500 plus $5 per acre for outdoor operations, or $0.33 per 1,000 square feet of indoor operations. Payments are required when the NDA approves the application.

New formulations of CBD allow the cannabinoid to be used in a variety of ways. Photo by: (Gina Coleman/Weedmaps)

Testing requirements

All industrial hemp must be tested to ensure THC content is less than 0.3%. If the crop tests between 0.4% and 1% THC, the grower has the option to retest. Anything that tests higher than 1% THC is considered marijuana. Invoices for all testing costs are sent from the state to the grower, including time for inspection, mileage and sample analysis. Following testing and any applicable retesting, crops found to contain a THC concentration greater than 0.3% will be considered illegal marijuana and will be destroyed by the state.

Labeling requirements

Although the state has established labeling requirements for marijuana products, there are no established requirements for hemp-derived products, including CBD oil. According to the FDA, CBD oil may not be used as an ingredient in food, beverages, or dietary supplements. Labels also may not make any nutritional or therapeutic claims.

Nevada CBD possession limits

Currently, there are no clear possession limits for CBD oil or other hemp-derived CBD products.

Where to buy CBD in Nevada

CBD oil and other hemp-derived CBD products are available in a variety of retail stores and online, as well as through delivery services. The manufacturing and sale of CBD remain largely unregulated, so it’s important to research manufacturers and sellers to ensure the CBD products are from a reputable source.

How to read CBD labels and packaging

Because CBD legality is still a gray area, there are no clear regulations around the production, sale, and labeling of CBD products, including CBD oil. However, most reputable CBD producers will typically include the following information on their CBD product labels:

  • Amount of active CBD per serving.
  • Supplement Fact panel, including other ingredients.
  • Net weight or volume.
  • Manufacturer or distributor name.
  • Suggested use.
  • Full spectrum, broad spectrum, or isolate.
  • Batch or date code.

Hemp-CBD Across State Lines: Nevada

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) legalized hemp by removing the crop and its derivatives from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and by providing a detailed framework for the cultivation of hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA.

This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. Our attorneys track these developments in real-time on behalf of multiple clients, and we provide a 50-state matrix showing how states regulate hemp and hemp products.

In light of the rapidly evolving legislative changes, we are also presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-derived cannabidiol (Hemp CBD). Today we turn to Nevada.

Pursuant to the 2014 U.S. Farm Bill, the 2015 Nevada Senate Bill 305, the 2016 Nevada Senate Bill 396, and the 2019 Nevada Senate Bill 209, industrial hemp and Hemp-CBD products may be produced in Nevada under the supervision of the Nevada Department of Agriculture (“NDA”) so long as the crop and its finished products contain no more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”).

The sale of Hemp-CBD products is allowed under Nevada law. However, not every category of Hemp-CBD products may be lawfully sold in the state. The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (“DHHS”), along with many county Departments of Health, have publicly adopted the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA“)’s position on the sale and marketing of CBD in foods and dietary supplements. Some, including the Washoe County Health District, have taken enforcement actions by seizing these products from local stores. In addition, the state’s Division of Public and Behavioral Health (“DPBH”) recently published guidelines that further reiterate that only hemp ingredients generally recognized as safe (“GRAS“) can be lawfully sold in the state.

Although the sale of CBD-infused foods and dietary supplements is strictly prohibited in the state, the sale of other categories of products, such as CBD-infused smokables and cosmetics, is neither expressly authorized nor prohibited.

Chapter 557 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) legalized the sale of Hemp-CBD products “intended for human consumption,” which means “intended for ingestion or inhalation by a human or for topical application to the skin or hair of a human”, so long as these products meet specific testing requirements. See NRS 557(270)(4)(b). Both the NDA and the DHHS have been tasked with developing regulations on this issue; however, according to the Department of Agriculture’s Industrial Hemp FAQs, the agency does not regulate processed finished Hemp-CBD products for human consumption; the FDA and the DHHS do. It’s worth noting that while the DHHS regulates the sale of foods and dietary supplements, it does not oversee the sale of cosmetics, which are regulated by the DPBH. As of the date if this post, neither the DHHS nor the DPBH have adopted testing rules, which means the sale and marketing of these categories of products remain uncertain, unregulated, and therefore, risky in Nevada.

how to top a marijuana plant

Topping Cannabis Guide: How to Top Your Plants

Cutting Cannabis For Better Structure: “Topping”

Topping is a cannabis plant training techniques that involves cutting off the top of a main stem. The technique is designed to give you a free way to create more colas as well as spread out the plant so you can take advantage of all your light. As a result, topping can help you achieve bigger marijuana yields!

Most plants naturally only have one main stem. The idea of “topping” is to cut off the top of a main stem to split it into two.

The two growth tips that remain will each develop into their own stem. Each stem can turn into a bud/cola in the flowering stage, so by topping the plant once or a few times, you increase the total number of buds sites under the grow light, and it also helps you keep the plant flat and wide.

It you let a marijuana plant grow naturally, it will usually grow one main stem

But if you top the plant when it’s young, you can cause it to grow multiple colas in basically the same amount of time! This often lets you grow more bud in the same amount of space with the same grow light.

…In the same amount of vertical space as a plant like this

All plant training techniques are designed to help growers get a more desirable plant shape and bigger yields without changing other aspects of their grow. For example, cannabis plants don’t naturally grow in a way that takes full advantage of indoor grow lights – a lot of light is wasted when cannabis plants are allowed to grow naturally without training.

Because of this, cannabis plant training techniques like topping are especially effective at increasing yields in indoor grow setups by creating a bushier plant with extra colas.

Notice how these plants have many colas instead of just one – this is due to using plant training techniques like topping.

Learn about FIMing, a very similar plant training technique that removes slightly “less off the top” but still results in multiple colas.

In the above example, the plant on the left was allowed to grow naturally, which resulted in the classic “Christmas tree” shape that’s not very efficient under indoor grow lights. The plant on the right was topped as a seedling. This broke the dominance of the main cola, and the plant started putting out multiple colas.

With topping, the growth tips that become new colas are already present. They just get bigger and become colas because topping breaks the symmetry of the plant and exposes these growth tips to light and air. Instead of focusing on just one cola, the plant starts focusing on many growth tips until they become colas.

Topping Involves Removing or Damaging Top Growth – This Reveals Hidden Growth Tips and Signals Plants to Start Putting Energy Into Them

By damaging the main stem, topping encourages the plant to spend energy growing many colas instead of focusing on just one.

Lower growth nodes will become new colas once they’re exposed to light and air, but they develop much faster when the main cola’s dominance is broken by topping.

Notice how these growth tips have started developing and rising up after plant is topped (the fan leaves have been removed so you can see the new colas more easily)

Here’s an example of a plant that was topped at a late age, after it had already grown 8 nodes. Although you might not get quite as good results as if you had topped it earlier, it still definitely increased the total number of colas and improved the yields!

Topping Quick Summary

  • Cut off top of plant at stem in between nodes
  • Creates 2 main colas at the top of the plant, and LST can be used to create more
  • New colas are evenly spaced (attached to the stem in the same place)
  • Can be used to reduce the height of plant in vegetative page
  • Can slow down growth for a day or two

This video shows the whole cannabis topping process, in timelapse format. The lower growth tips begin to rise up, and each of these can produce even more main colas.

Here’s a video showing what a plant looks like after being topped (time-lapse of about 2 weeks)

You will end up with a wider, bushier plant that doesn’t grow just one main cola in a Christmas tree shape.

Some growers will use several phases of topping to produce cannabis plants with dozens of colas. Some techniques take this to the extreme, for example manifolding (also sometimes called “main-lining”) is a technique that uses topping several times to make a cannabis “manifold.”

Important: Don’t Top Too Early!

With both topping, you remove some of the growth on the end of a cola of a young marijuana plant, which causes the plant to stop focusing on one cola (like a Christmas tree) and instead to create many bud-laden colas (grow more bushy).

If you top the plant too early, it will have a hard time recovering. It may seem like a good idea, but you will get the best results and fastest recover if you wait until the plant has 4-5 nodes.

Wait Until Plant Has At Least 4-5+ Nodes – Topping a Too-Young Seedling Can Slow Down Growth. Waiting a Few More Days to Cut Can Result in a Much Faster Recovery.

Growers use the plant’s natural response to topping to produce short bushy plants with many colas. After the plant has been switched to the flowering stage, the widespread of colas allows the plant to efficiently use indoor grow lights to produce the biggest yields possible.

If you choose to use either of these methods, you will get the best results by doing it when the plant is young, usually when it has around 4-5 total nodes formed.

These young cannabis plants are almost ready to be topped

You get great results by breaking the tendency of the plant to grow one main cola while the plant is still short, because you can arrange your multiple colas however you want as the plant develops, instead of dealing with a Christmas tree shaped plant.

You can also top your plant later in the vegetative stage, but you will have a longer main stalk, giving you less ability to arrange the colas the way you want.

After being topped, your plant will need some time spent recovering in the vegetative stage, though generally this just causes the plant to ‘fill out’ more instead of growing taller, which is often desirable for indoor growers.

This plant was trained for

2 dozen colas in the vegetative stage

Important: Don’t Top in the Flowering Stage; It’s Too Late!

Topping should only be used in the vegetative stage! In fact, any training technique that involves cutting or damaging your plant should only be done in the vegetative stage of cannabis growth, and never during the flowering/budding stage.

In the flowering stage, only gentle training techniques such as LST or bending should ever be used to change the shape of the plant.

A plant with many colas can only be achieved by training a plant from early in the vegetative stage

Cannabis plants are much less tough in the flowering stage, and they no longer are growing vegetatively (producing new stems or colas).

If you watch a plant in the flowering stage, you’ll see that it doesn’t get taller or develop growth nodes. It only “focuses” on making buds. Topping at this point won’t do any good. Damaging your plant during the budding stage will usually cause a reduction in your final yields.

By the time your plants are in the flowering stage, much of the growth structure has already been created, and you generally need to try to manage as best you can if your plant has grown into a shape you don’t like.

What if my plant is already too tall in the flowering stage?

If your plant is already too tall in the flowering stage for your grow setup, you’ve got to take immediate action to prevent the plant from getting any taller.

My suggestion is to use bending (LST) your plant to control the height of further growth.

Once flowering is fully underway (after the initial flowering stretch), the plant will not grow much taller, so you can just try to hang on until harvest.

How Can You Tell That Your Plant is Diverting Energy to New Colas?

Almost immediately after topping, the connections to each node become enlarged at the base.

These thickened connections shows thatshow cannabis plant is spreading energy more evenly across the whole plant.

When you see your plant thicken connections like this, it means that the plant is strengthening the “internal system” of the stem, so it’s easeir to deliver nutrients and other building blocks. This results in faster growth, bigger colas, and increased yields for each of the affected stems.

The thickening that happens at the base of stems is one sign that the plant is diverting energy to the new colas (where before it was putting the majority of its energy into just the one main cola).

As time goes on, the most used stems can become so thick they’re almost like tree trunks.

How to Top Your Cannabis Plant

When topping your cannabis, you cut off a growing node of the plant, reducing the height instantly. This can be especially beneficial if you’ve let your plant get too tall. Topping also increases the number of colas, which can give you more bud at harvest,

When topping your marijuana plant, it’s best to top the plant when it is young, and has 4-5 nodes (sets of leaves) in total. Although you could do it a little earlier, you’re more likely to accidentally stunt your plant the younger it is.

“Topping” the plant means cutting off the newest node on your marijuana plant’s main cola in order to split it into two. However the word topping can also refer to cutting of the tip of any stem.

A good place to top is directly above the leaves of the next node.In other words, cut through the stem right above its next set of leaves from the top.

This will cause your plant to transfer its energy to two new main colas, as indicated by the two yellow dots in the diagram above.

14-day Timelapse Video of a Cannabis Plant’s Recover After Being Topped

These 2 new colas for a V which can easily be bent to spread wide. You can top these two new colas a few weeks later and have 4 total colas. This can even be doubled to produce 8 colas that all come from a single “manifold.” Learn more about manifolding cannabis.

Another benefit of topping is how the plant tends to grow bushier afterwards, spreading its energy much more evenly around to the whole plant.

Often lower branches rise up to become new main colas. This is especially true if you combine Topping with LST to open up the plant so the lower branches get more light.

If you’ve grown a very tall plant, it’s also possible to top your (vegetative) plant down to the node you want to reduce the height, but remember that all the time the plant spent getting tall will be lost. In order to get the most flexible colas, without losing vegetative time, try to top early in the plant’s life

If you’re still in the vegetative (non-budding) stage and plants are growing way too tall, you can top the plant immediately to remove height as needed. The time spent growing the extra growth will be lost, so this may add time to the veg stage.

If you want to top the plant multiple times, you may be interested in learning about main-lining (creating a manifold – a plant training technique).

Topping Cannabis Guide: How to Top Your Plants Cutting Cannabis For Better Structure: “Topping” Topping is a cannabis plant training techniques that involves cutting off the top of a main

Topping Cannabis Plants: Why, When & How

Topping is a central and fundamental plant training practice. It enables you to train your plants to grow horizontally and make the most efficient use of the light. In this article we explain the science of apical dominance and the reasons why you should top cannabis plants. We provide simple instructions for when to top cannabis plants to avoid stunting and get the best results. Topping is actually rather simple and any grower can master it. We offer useful advice for how to top cannabis plants.

Topping is a “high-stress” training technique which entails removing the top growth tip from the main stem or a branch. Many growers are concerned that cutting the top off their young plants may slow their grow down, however, when done properly, topping is a critical method to fill the canopy faster and reduce vegetation times.

Why Top Your Plants:

Cannabis plants typically grow tall and skinny, much like a Christmas tree. Without training, they have minimal lateral growth and concentrate most of their resources in one stem with one main cola. They display a phenomenon called “apical dominance”, which is the key factor that determines the directional growing characteristics of plants. Different types of apical dominance lead different plants to produce their patterns of both vertical and horizontal growth. This programming in plants is an evolutionary adaptation to their typical growing environments.

The landrace varieties that are the source of modern cannabis genetics are typically tall fast-growing annuals that are in competition with other plants for canopy space. Thus, they grow in a shape that is effective for that environment. However, we are not growing them in that environment!

There are other plants that grow flat and broad because they are adapted for environments where light is scarce. These plants serve as a better model for us to think about when trying to make the most effective use of overhead light. Ideally, we want low broad plants that harvest every photon of light energy available to them.

Apical Dominance and Auxins in Cannabis

Cannabis naturally grows like a Christmas Tree because its apical dominance is set for tall skinny growth. It is possible to achieve some degree of lateral growth dominance with nothing but low-stress training (LST), but the single most effective way to break the apical dominance in cannabis is to cut off the apex, by topping the plant.

The top or end shoot, which is the main growing point in plants, contains the hormones which control the functions for apical dominance. Auxins, are one hormone that appears to play a particularly significant role. The apical growth tip produces auxins, and they are transported through the phloem, always downward, where they inhibit the growth of lateral growth tips lower on the plant. The auxins prevent elongation of the growth-tips below the apex, however, they don’t travel long distances through the plant. Therefore, as the plant gets taller, the lowest branches become freed from the inhibiting effects of the auxins and begin developing. This produces the classic “Christmas tree” shape.

The Topping Technique

Topping allows us to manipulate the growth patterns of the plant by removing top apical growth tips where auxins are produced. This is called, “breaking the apical dominance”, and it allows lateral branches to develop. Many plant training practices such as manifolding and mainlining, rely on topping as a component technique. However, it can also be used on its own to break apical dominance and train cannabis plants.

When To Top Cannabis Plants:

We generally recommend that you wait until your cannabis plants have 6 nodes before topping them. This ensures that they get adequate stem and root development before the shock of topping. Because of the nature of how auxins behave and what is most efficient for light, we recommend topping the plant above the 4 th, 5 th or 6 th node.

    Want to get weed delivered in DC. Here’s everything you need to know.

    DC Weed Delivery FAQ

    The Gentleman has compiled your most Frequently Asked Questions about DC Weed Delivery into a helpful, supplementary guide. Here, feast your eyeholes on these babies!

    Do I need to be a DC resident to use these weed delivery services? Nope! Any adult 21+ can use DC’s I71 gifting services.

    Do I need a medical marijuana card to use these weed delivery services? No medical card is required to use any of DC’s I71 gifting services. The city does have a medical marijuana program with six licensed dispensaries. You need a medical card to visit those, but they accept most out of state cards.

    Can I get weed delivered to my hotel in DC? My apartment? A nearby cafe? Yes, yes, and yes. The only place they aren’t allowed to deliver are federal grounds & buildings, like the National Mall. Federal land means federal law applies and cannabis is not yet federally legal. Many DC weed delivery services do not operate east of the Anacostia River, either, choosing to concentrate on the heavily trafficked downtown & tourist areas instead- like Dupont Circle, Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, Adams Morgan, H St, and so on.

    How long is my delivery going to take? Usually anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. DC’s kind of a small city so it doesn’t really matter where you are, everybody’s gotta fight the same traffic to get to you. And have you seen these potholes? More like pot, uhhh…holes. Crap, I’m stoned.

    Pick-ups vs Delivery? Most services that do pick-ups require appointments, so it’s not necessarily faster than delivery, but you might get lucky! Of course, setting an appointment in advance is a great way to minimize your time getting weed and maximizing your time smoking weed, so it does pay to be organized…

    The gift weed delivery service wants me to send them a photo of my ID first? Lots of brands do this for age verification and their own security. It’s a fairly standard request. Trust, as they say, is a two-way sex dungeon. Wait, what?

    Who’s got the best/strongest weed in DC? The gifts available from most weed delivery services in DC change frequently, sometimes even daily, which is why I feature one almost every day on my Menus page from one of the brands I have personally vetted for consistent quality and professional service over the last…geez, going on four years now. Before that, I spent eight years making my living by approving and managing vendors for outside work, so you could say I have some previous experience at this sort of thing. I also care a lot- like, neurotically so- about what weed earns the Gentleman’s approval. FYI, THC percentage for flowers doesn’t matter that much past a certain threshold in my opinion.

    But I need that medical-grade weed! That’s not really a thing outside of California fifteen years ago, Mr. Duchovny. There’s no difference in quality or potency between recreational/adult-use and medical cannabis. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    That premium indoor! More sparkly trichomes equate to higher potency than outdoor or greenhouse grade marijuana, but Indoor doesn’t necessarily translate to “quality.”

    That AAA weed! Do I have to call security?

    I’m looking for a specific ratio of CBD:THC. Then you need a medical card. CBD flowers from DC gift marijuana delivery services or pop-ups are pretty rare. If you’re not a resident and a card isn’t an option, then your best bet is to put your science hat on and mix up the usual THC with readily available CBD-only products to figure out a combo that works for you.

    Is DC weed lab-tested? Sometimes. Steep Hill has a local office to test for cannabinoids & I understand they’ve recently added the capability to test for bacteria & microbials- a very exciting development! Some medical growers, like Abatin Wellness, have their own testing equipment for that, too.

    Look, lab testing is all well and good and science is important (assuming accurate data), so I’m all for it. But I can point to some lab-tested weed on Maryland medical marijuana shelves for months- months!– after it was reported that the grower had used unlicensed pesticides, or I could just paraphrase Tommy Boy and explain that I can write lab-tested on a box but that won’t make it good weed.

    What about the pop-up events? They’ve been getting raided by DC’s Metropolitan Police Department with regular frequency since late ’17. That makes me nervous about attending or advising you on where to go. I try to avoid dramatic scenes with armed gunmen as a general life rule.

    What about brick & mortar locations? There are several brands operating out of storefronts these days, like Street Lawyer Services, Gifted Curators, and Lifted.

    What’s the difference between I71 weed gifting storefronts and dispensaries? Dispensaries possess city licenses to operate, must use a seed-to-sale tracking system, and have all their products lab-tested. Storefronts (along with Delivery and Pick-Up services) only need to comply with Initiative 71 gifting rules.

    Does anyone still take credit cards? Few and far between these days. Scammers figured out they could argue the charge of their I71 purchases and get their money back. Once the payment processor got a chargeback request, though, they started going thru the brand’s account, saw what was going on, and kicked ’em off after freezing their funds. Some lost thousands of dollars this way and that’s why we can’t get airline miles for smoking weed anymore. Sigh. Now it’s mostly cash, but some take cryptocurrency and some take app payments.

    Do your gifts have what it takes to be featured on GentlemanToker.com? I’m the pickiest little pillow princess! I don’t review marijuana that produces an acrid smoke that irritates the mouth or throat or that smells like Ammonia, Hay, Must, Grass, Sweat, Chemicals, or has No Smell at all. If you think you can pass that bar, contact me here and we’ll schedule an evaluation of your flowers.

    Any other questions? Go ahead and shoot, hoss! The Gentleman’s discretion is assured.

    30 Gallon

    30 Gallon Fabric Pots from Smart Pot, Gro Pro, Root Pot and Dirt Pot

    Smart Pots are eco-friendly and effective fabric pots. These soft growing containers are more productive than plastic pots because they allow air to reach the soil and roots, improving drainage and keeping the root system from overheating on hot days. Smart Pot’s design also allows the air to prune the plant root structure and prevents plants from becoming root-bound! These pots are available in black and tan. The dimensions of these 30 Gallon containers are 24” W x 16.5” Tall. Therefore, these pots will hold approximately 4.3 cubic feet of soil.

    Gro Pro Fabric Pots deliver better airflow to plant roots, provide structure without trapping water and increase plant growth. Three variations of the Gro Pro 30 Gallon pots are available. This includes the black and tan round models and a black square fabric pot. Round pots measure 24”W x 16.5” H and square pots measure 24”L x 24”W x 14”H. Both round and square pots will hold approximately 4.9 cubic feet of soil. Round pots are also available in a pack of 10 (please see Gro Pro Essential Round Pots). Under normal growing conditions, these are expected to last for 5 – 7 years.

    Hydrofarm’s Dirt Pots are made from a porous breathable fabric that allows your plants to thrive by promoting exceptional root health and vigorous plant growth. The soft-sided construction allows the planter to conform to your terrain, making it the perfect choice for all growing areas. They have superior drainage and aeration. These Dirt Pots come in black and tan. The handles provide strength, stability and convenience. They are non-degradable, so they will hold up for multiple growing seasons. The dimensions of these 30 gallon Dirt Pots are 24″ Wide x 16.5″ Tall and will hold approximately 4.3 cubic feet of soil.

    Root pots are made of a biodegradable material that helps facilitate airflow and promote healthy root growth. These pots will break down after multiple seasons of use, approximately three to five years. However, they are strong enough to withstand winds, work great with drip lines and within hydroponic systems. The dimensions of this 30 Gallon container are 24”W x 16.5”H. This size pot will hold approximately 4.3 cubic feet of soil.

    Charles (verified owner) – February 2, 2015 :

    I started off using the twenty-gallon pots for my outdoor grow and slowly started increasing the size. So far, we have seen that the larger the pot, the larger the plant and yield becomes. I really like the thirty-gallon pots so far and will think about using the forty-five gallons next year. There are some additional soil costs, but so far it seems to be worth it. I appreciate your guys’ help and advice. Thanks for everything!

    Carol (verified owner) – February 19, 2015 :

    It was very important for us to find a type of gardening container that allowed the plants to grow in their optimal conditions and at the same time be an affordable option for a large-scale operation. Our team has a very efficient system for cleaning and reusing the pots every year that works great. The plants love these pots and so do we.

Growing weed outdoors is therefore generally more difficult compared to indoor growing.

    However, the cannabis plant is naturally an outdoor plant so each plant can be grown outdoors. Yet, not all species achieve good results when grown outdoors. That has to do with various causes. An important factor is in this is the degree of mold and moisture resistance. Moreover, not all species are suitable for the climate in which you want to grow. From this you can conclude that the success of an outdoor cultivation largely depends on the chosen weed seeds.

    Best Marijuana Seed For Outdoor Cannabis Growing

    Smartweedshop
    May 10 · 5 min read

    Are you wondering about the best marijuana seeds for outdoor cannabis growing? Well, you’ve come to the right cultivation resource to learn how to grow weed outdoors. The type of cannabis seeds you choose to cultivate will affect the yield and quality of your outdoor marijuana crop. Read our guide to help you decide which seeds you need for your type of outdoor climate.

    How Important Is Choosing The Right Outdoor Cannabis Seeds?

    When choosing the right outdoor cann a bis seeds, you should consider how fast the plant flowers, its resistance to mold and pests, its average yield, its ability to handle humidity, its potency, and aroma, and its unique effects. Selecting cannabis seeds with your favorite traits is the first step toward narrowing down which seeds you’re going to plant.

    Regardless of how optimal your growing practices are, your outdoor crop’s potential is mainly determined by your seed’s genetics. Many cannabis seeds for sale have been bred for indoor production, which makes the selection process even more complicated. While cannabis can grow nearly anywhere, some seeds thrive in sunny or cool conditions.

    Consider Your Climate Zone

    Climate refers to the average weather conditions in a region over a long period of time. Hot regions can be found near the equator due to the sunlight’s relative proximity. Cooler temperatures can be found toward the North and South Poles because sunlight and heat are least direct there.

    Different climate zones are categorized based on their latitude, temperature, amount of precipitation, and the times of the year when precipitation occurs. Climate zones are useful in determining which cannabis seeds and strains are best for your climate conditions. Climate zones can be divided into five main types:

    Tropical: Hot and humid with temperatures greater than 64ºF year-round and less than 59 inches of precipitation each year.

    Temperate: Warm and humid summers with mild winters and thunderstorms.

    Continental: Warm to cool summers and extremely cold winters with snowstorms and strong winds.

    Polar: Harsh, cold temperatures that never exceed 50ºF.

    Cold and Wet Climates

    Northern climates tend to be cool and wet. In these climates, the autumn rain can begin to fall in early October or late September. For this reason, outdoor cannabis growers are advised to select a cannabis strain with a short life cycle. Strains with a short life cycle can be harvested early during the second half of September. Ideal cold-weather seed strains include:

    Northern Lights: A fast-flowering and legendary indica strain that’s resistant to mold and pests. Enjoy its sweet and spicy aromas and trichome-coated buds. Indulge in Northern Lights’ relaxing and mood-boosting effects.

    Durban Poison: Choose this pure, South African-born Sativa strain for your cold climate cultivation. Durban Poison produces a heavy sheet of trichomes over its round and swollen buds. Growers love its fruity, herbal, and minty aroma.

    Hindu Kush: A pure indica strain named after the mountains where it originated. The Hindu Kush is used to unforgiving climates and goes on to produce so many trichomes on its buds. The Hindu Kush has a sweet and sandalwood-like aroma and elicits calming and sleepy effects.

    White Widow: This balanced hybrid strain was first bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seeds and has become a staple in Dutch coffee shops. Users enjoy White Widow’s euphoric and energizing effects that make them more sociable and talkative.

    Of course, the weather can be unpredictable, especially when you’re planting your crop months in advance. Some marijuana growers choose to plant various genetics with different flowering times to increase the chances of a robust crop. Diversifying you’re growing can protect you from having a complete crop failure.

    Climates with very cold weather and a short summer lasting between two to three months should consider planting auto-flowering marijuana seeds. Autoflowering plants do not require a photoperiod. Instead, they automatically flower after a short life cycle. Some of the best auto-flowering strains include:

    Critical Autoflowering: This indica-dominant auto-flowering strain has a fruity and subtle spice aroma. Critical is an excellent strain for novice growers who want a relaxing and pungent cannabis strain.

    AK-47 Autoflowering: AK-47 auto-flowering strains take the legendary AK-47 Sativa genetics and allow them to be grown in a shorter time period. AK-47 auto-flowering strains elicit calming and blissful effects.

    Blackberry Autoflowering: This indica hybrid has Pakistani and Canadian genetics. Blackberry auto-flowering seeds grow short and in a matter of eight weeks. These buds produce a sticky and heavy resin and have an intense berry-like aroma.

    Warm, Humid, and Dry Climates

    Mediterranean and warm climates are the most ideal climates for outdoor cannabis growing. You can pretty much grow any strain you want under these environmental conditions. Take a shot at producing some of your favorite strains or some of the most legendary, hardy, potent, and flavorful marijuana strains such as:

    Sour Diesel: Choose this energizing, Sativa-dominant strain with a strong bouquet of diesel and citrus aromas. Sour Diesel is an excellent strain to ward off stress, depression, and mild aches and pains.

    Amnesia Haze: Amnesia Haze has South Asian and Jamaican genetics. This award-winning strain has an invigorating blend of peppery and citrus aromas. Users love its uplifting and motivating buzz.

    Grape Ape: This indica hybrid has a strong grape aroma and elicits relaxing and analgesic effects. Its dense buds often feature a purple hue.

    Autoflowering marijuana strains can also be grown in warm and dry climates. Beginner growers can appreciate how easy it is to grow premium-quality auto-flowering strains. Experienced growers can also choose auto-flowering strains in a warm climate to double-crop during the same season.

    Warmer and wetter tropical environments require some considerations. Choose cannabis strains that are resistant to mold due to the excess humidity. Loose flower formation can reduce humidity for coastal climates. Heatwaves can also threaten crop production in these warm climate zones. A greenhouse solution could protect your plants against harsh conditions.

    How To Buy Marijuana Seeds

    Before the advent of major seed banks and modern breeding practices, all marijuana seeds were geared to grow in the great outdoors. The cannabis plant has adapted to different climates over the years. Today, you can find a variety of outdoor and indoor-friendly cannabis seeds at dispensaries and online seed banks.

    No matter what type of cannabis seeds you choose to grow outdoors, remember that perfecting the growing process takes time, patience, experimentation, and passion. Have fun with it and don’t let bad yields get you down. Learn from your mistakes and set your sights on your next harvest with the best outdoor cannabis genetics you can find.
