    Transplanting and managing the root zone is super basic to cannabis health
    and well being. Also, you might want to check the pH of the soil and in
    some cases, the salt (Na) content, especially if it contains much manure.
    Salt really builds up!

    horatio headyreviews} CAN I SAY
    accessibility and quality- Two factors that greatly slow my
    recovery effort, with the use of cannabis. The home-grown cannabis I use to
    medicate(outdoor, landrace; more than likely indica-dominate), is
    more-often than-not, overpowering and probably used for appetite, sleep.
    Albeit, however, it is FRIGGIN AWESOME. Wait, holy shit, you
    mean cannabis isn’t a go to treatment for addicts In recovery?! Organic,
    non-addictive, and good for you, yep. Your body is genetically engineered
    to receive and distribute cannabinoids. EndoCannabinoids are being produced
    inside yourself as you are reading this. Due to my locale, I am at a
    disadvantage, unable to obtain/possess the strains that would be most
    beneficial for my personal war against opioids. Depending upon your method
    of ingesting cannabis, strain, organic-state(hash, bho, rso, kief,) you
    will experience varying beneficial medicinal relief. I couldn’t imagine how
    freeing it must be to have access to these medicines, to experience
    near-normality that cannabis can offer a person with my affliction. Opioids
    and synthetic opioids used in treatment have damaged my kidneys, severely
    affected the condition of my heart, and other major organs. I sincerely
    believe my quality of life, and many others as well, would improve to a
    constant functional state undoubtedly, when cannabis can be accessed and
    applied. If you have taken the time to read this, please let me add;
    Cannabis can help. It will help. I promise there does exist a strain that
    suits every problem that hinders your progress. I also recommend edibles,
    highly. If only I had access to the strains, the hashes, the oils, the
    proper medicines that are so easily attainable in other parts of the
    country, I could more accurately navigate my path to health/recovery, a
    path I could share with people who suffer. Cannabis is a great alternative
    to treatments that can poison your body, poison your life. Cannabis heals,
    naturally, literally, heals you. Thanks for all the informative literature
    you’ve produced and all the years of activism. Nearly everything I know of
    growing and garden maintenance hails from your grow-guides I purchased from
    Hightimes in the mid 90’s in my mid to late teens. live long and prosper.

    uh oh. i used just foxfarm to start the seedlings.. I thought i heard the
    pH was good with the Foxfarm.. So I guess I go to garden store and get…
    what? a meter and some corrective liquids… are these items expensive?
    im scraping thru this project.. i got all kinds of supplies, i guess i
    will need to do pH testing and correcting..

    I was told by a grow shop 0wner that Black Gold is garbage for growing, he
    even gave me a free bag of F’F Ocean Forest and told me to stay away from
    black gold products. So my question is black gold all purpose potting soil
    bad because i no natural and organic is safe to grow with and for
    consumption but wat about all purpose, i cant find a answer to this if u
    can answer yes or no can u explain y its bad or good.

    In soil, element transportation have the most importance. Stuffing all that
    aeraded organic mixture heavily into pots and adding any chemical
    furtilizer is crime against cannabis. Flushing takes more time and most of
    that precious chemicals you bought are just wasted. Might be sad for
    fertilizer companies but composted crap is best stymulator. Also 100%
    healthy for you PEACE!

    My question to you Jorge is are you using this as a base mix and then
    periodically amending it with organic fertilizers at the various stages of
    the plants life? Thanks for your time!

    Lame, you are not mixing soil, you are mixing brands. Why don’t you teach
    how to make our own soil. WE dont have any of these brands outside US.

    What is with the ALJAZEERA logo placed in the lower left hand corner of
    these videos? I have smoked cannabis and all I ever found it to do for me
    was make me sleepy, and that was a good thing! I support this movement of
    Leagalization not terrorism.
