Phosphorus Toxicity and pH Down in Marijuana Plants

September 24, 2014

Very little is written about the effects of Ph control products on marijuana plants. Observant growers might have noticed that, when pH up or pH down is added to a fertilizer mix, the ppm or EC rises. In other words, some kind of soluble substance is being added. What is it, and how does it affect your cannabis plants? General Hydroponics has been the industry standard for pH up and pH down for many years, but their own bottles do not tell you what it contains. For old timers in the cannabis culture, you might … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]


Unregulated Marijuana Cultivation Continues to Threaten Environment

September 22, 2014

By Ed Namowitz Although marijuana laws have been relaxed in many parts of the US in recent years, it is still illegal in most of the country. Twenty-three states and Washington D.C. have some form of medical marijuana law and two of those states have legalized it for recreational use. The continued lack of oversight and regulation in pro- and anti-marijuana states alike has allowed outdoor growers to use questionable techniques that are often not environmentally friendly or sustainable. Excess amounts of fertilizers and pesticides are regularly used to maximize marijuana yields in the shortest … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

ICBC Conference in Portland Mainstreams Marijuana

Last weekend, marijuana industry professionals gathered from all over the country to share ideas and bring marijuana further into mainstream acceptance. The fastest growing industry in the country just sped up a little more. About 30 vendors, mostly serving other marijuana businesses, gathered to network, trade information, and get more traction. Also in attendance were over 500 individuals who came to here lectures that were scheduled throughout Saturday and Sunday. Unlike many previous marijuana events, this was not a big party of stoned young people- it was a gathering of serious people figuring out ways … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

pH Tendencies of Various Marijuana Grow Media

August 30, 2014

Balancing pH is perhaps the most challenging and important part of being a successful marijuana grower. pH must be within a certain range (5.5-6.3) pretty much all the time in order to get great yields, quality, and potency. The difficulty comes with all the variables that can affect pH one direction or the other. These include your source water, your nutrients, the metabolic activities in the grow medium, and the grow medium itself. In earlier articles we talked a little bit about the water and nutrients, and now we need to cover the basics of … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]


Diesel Ryder Autoflowering Marijuana Seeds

What are Super Auto Marijuana Seeds?

August 26, 2014

One of our earlier articles discussed the genetic heritage and reproductive limitations of autoflowering seeds. After further research, we will now be discussing yield, potency, and then feminization in our next article. You might notice looking at the specs on various autoflowering varieties that the yields look suspiciously low. This is because the genetic mix that causes them to flower quickly also limits their vegetative growth potential by a LOT. If a seed starts to flower within 2 weeks of sprouting, you shouldn’t expect much in the way of branching. More likely, you’ll get one … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

Bigotry Against Cannabis Hobbles Democracy and the Economy

August 24, 2014

By Chris Conrad In early March 2014, California governor Jerry Brown made his ignominious remark that he does not support marijuana legalization because the modern world requires people to stay alert “if not 24 hours a day, more than some of the potheads might be able to put together.” This comment came as a shock coming from so-called “Governor Moonbeam.” Living in California, one may forget that such bigotry still exists among our leaders. California is the world’s sixth largest economy, much of it as well be derived from the work of such pot smokers … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

Raw Soluble Nutrients for Weed Mimic the Human Raw Food Craze

August 18, 2014

Anyone living in the alternative culture has had their exposure to raw food. If well done, it can be quite excellent, and after a few weeks of living that way, the health benefits become undeniable. Following on the raw food craze, vitamin supplement companies have now started successfully marketing raw vitamins with the claim that they are more natural, nutritive, and closer to the plant source, which means more vitality and “magic” as they absorb into your system. I use them, and I think they are the best vitamins out there. The company dominating the … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

Canary – Opening Medical Marijuana Access While Keeping it Private

August 2, 2014

By Ed Namowitz Note: Since the publication of this article, Eaze has announced itself as a California competitor of Canary, and an article on their business model will be published on WeedGear.com in the coming days. Since California passed Proposition 215 in 1996, the first Medical Marijuana law in the country, tens of thousands of new businesses have been popping up that cater to the new “green” economy. Now that Colorado and Washington have taken it a step further and legalized recreational marijuana, the race is on to find the next big trend and grab … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

Managing pH in Your Marijuana Garden – Pt. 3

July 28, 2014

Generally, as we discussed in the previous article, high nutrients (ppm’s) means low pH, and vice versa, but there are a few exceptions to this. The main exception is in organic gardening, where pH is powerfully altered by microbial activity. When using organic fertilizers, micro-organisms are responsible for “processing” the nutrients in order to prepare them for uptake by roots. In so doing, biochemical processes take place that drastically alter the nutrient water, and that includes the pH. Pot growers might find that the pH of their initial cannabis nutrient mix is as … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

How to Manage pH in Marijuana Plant Cultivation Pt. II

July 25, 2014

In last week’s article, we talked about the basic steps involved with getting pH under control in your cannabis garden, which is absolutely necessary for ongoing success. When pH gets out of range, which easily happens, nutrients cannot get to your pot plants, and they get sick, or at the very least, slow down. In a flowering cycle, with each day being an opportunity for more bud mass, you can’t afford to lose a day if you want to harvest top-notch bud. The 3 main factors affecting your pH are your source water, your nutrients, … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

Medical Marijuana Laws Evolve in Southern States

July 23, 2014

MMJ in the South By Ed Namowitz After years of resisting the nationwide trend towards liberalizing marijuana for medical use, some interesting stories have recently begun popping up in the Deep South. Mississippi, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, and now North Carolina have all passed laws allowing a marijuana extract known as Cannabidiol (CBD) to be used for treating children with certain kinds of seizures. CBD oil is an extract of the hemp plant that does not produce a psychoactive effect like traditional marijuana ingestion does. It is most commonly extracted from legal industrial … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

How to Manage pH in Marijuana Plant Cultivation Pt. I

July 20, 2014

PH management is probably the most complicated aspect of marijuana cultivation, and handling it properly is one major key to growing huge happy buds. Many newbie growers, and even some experienced growers, think growing cannabis is easy because they unwittingly create a plant management system that accidentally handles pH and nutrients in a balanced way. They might then produce a few good harvests, but inevitably, pH problems will pop up and throw their grow systems off balance, stalling and/or sickening the marijuana plants. Only those who understand pH and how to manage it can ongoingly … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]
