  1. I don't need no thought control.......Sorry, got ahead of myself there. What if? If I'm just looking for the medicinal benefits and not really looking to get high, would I skip the decarboxolation step? I read that THCa has all the medicinal attributes of THC without the stony, but I'm not sure it's true. I need all the cannaboids, terpenes, all the factors that help with pain, but I need to function too. Thoughts? Respect.........As Always Cmoon
  2. After ruining most of my weed after burning it I have managed to dry my last plant and now have 3oz (90g) of dried, ground and decarboxylated bud. I want to make an oil based ticture something similar to the CBD oils you can buy online but much stronger and with THC in it too and without using solvents. (today I hear you can buy CBD oils from Holland & Barrett) I've read about making cannabutter, Rick Simpson Oil and other edibles and my weed is now decarbed so has anyone got any views on how to proceed from here? Many thanks Cmoon
  3. Hi, I just want to throw this one out to you all, first because I am new to growing my own (I am in week 17 of my first grow and although it was a mess at first due to trying to grow too many plants in a tiny tent all is now OK and flowering/budding nicely) secondly because I have angina with narrowing of the arteries and hence an abnormally fast heartbeat. My question is fairly simple:- Does all cannabis increase your heart rate i.e. Sativa, Indica, high CBD, high THC etc.? Use will be mainly for painkilling but I don't mind getting a bit of a high out of it too. I will be making tinctures at first and then rosin extraction when I can sort out a reasonably priced press. Any help on this will be much appreciated as I've had enough of the crap poisons my quack throws at me thinking it solves the problem......It just don't! Thanks to all Respect, as always, Cmoon
  4. Hiya, All you great people. I've arrived here because I was looking at the American site with the similar name. I had no idea 3 months ago that growing weed was so popular!.....I love it, everyones doing it, wow! Ok. I'm a complete novice and until 3 months ago didn't give a thought about growing my own weed for pain control. Yes, I have been taking the CBD oils and the like and yes I thing they do work,.......to a certain extent, but boy, are they expensive or what! Worked out I was spending around £120 per week for me and a little for my wife (fibromylalga) I won't go into my pains & bore the socks of you but am I glad I found this site. To cut a long story short, I found 'Sensi-Seeds' in holland and ordered 8 seeds...... 4 Purple bud Feminised, 2 Super Skunk Feminised/autoflowering and 2 regular somethings (I don't remember) Bad move I know, especially when my wife mixed 'em all up! Then armed with seeds I bought the list below:...... 1: 2ft x 2ft x 5ft growtent 2: one 250 watt halide, 3: Two 300 watt LED grow light, 4: a bunch of fertilisers pots dishes, 5: Coco Coir, 6: Two Lamp Holder Socket e27 with Switch ON/OFF 7: Two pendant style hanging LED growlight bulbs 8: Four sheets of Mylar (don't ask) 10: Trotec Air lock for window venting 11: Garland GAL44LSW 24 Cell Self-Watering Propagator - Black 12: Canna 1L Terra Flores 13: Canna 50L Terra Professional Plus Soil Mix Bag 14: Gro-Sure Perlite, 10 L 15: 8 x Small 20cm Round Bell Plant Pots Planters Plastic Green Colour Garden Pots 16: Grow ligh hangers 17: Inkbird ITC-306UK Dual Relays Plug Digital Temperature Controller Heating Thermostat(No Cooling) 24 Hours Day & Night Cycle Timer,3 Pins UK Socket 18: DIGOO DG-TH1001 Indoor&Outdoor Hygrometer Thermometer Sensor 19: String 20: 10 of Whitefurze G01R25 25cm Milano Round Planter - Terracotta 21 10 Dishes for pots 22: Masterplug Indoor Power TMS24-MP 24-Hour Mechanical Segment Timer 23: Aluminium Flexible Fan Ducting (5 Metres)-4"/100mm 24: Micro lens (to see Trichromes) 25: Strainer and filter stuff 26: Balhvit3 in 1 Soil Acidity Reader, Soil Plants, potted plant soil pH and Moisture Meter, Light Intensity 27: 8 of Whitefurze G01R25 25cm Milano Round Planter 28: 20 Litres Perlite 29: 3 Core Round White Flex Flexible Cable 0.75 MM 30: Black Orchid BO-AF-100-UK 100 mm 4-Inch Diameter Axial Flo Fan 31: PH Meter 32: Watering can 33: pH Down + enough epsom salts to fill an olympic swimming pool! 34: Syrige kit 35: Magnesium carbonate 36: calcium carbonate 37:All manner of coco fertilisers and sprays to keep bugs off 38: Pea sticks 39: Neem oil 40: Spray bottle 41: more larger pots and dishes to match Bottle of Glenmorange!!....the most important thing. That was ten weeks ago. Next I will give an update to where I am after 10 weeks. Sorry for the long intro but I thought it best just to show what I had bought for my setup.....(and I thought this was going to be cheap!) Of course I know you don't really 'need' all that stuff but I wanted to keep it precise and simple at the same time. My next post I'll bring you up to date and show some of the pitfalls that at least I stumbled through. Thanks for taking the time to read this. ......So with one very VERY large malt whiskey I will bid you good bye, until next time......Cheers! PS. I now know that 8 plants is plainly ridiculous in a tent of this size......2 x 2 x 5 high
  5. Sad story: Dank 10/10 mad stinky Amnesia huge fat scores delivered all day.... and when you pick up a bag all you find is some dry, powdery, odorless weed (in the most negative sense of the word). Has this ever happened to any of you? To me this happens more often than not. But hopefully this is about to change very soon. About me: I'm Mescaline a 40+ dude from east London. A father of three and a husband of one. Online entrepreneur workwise. Looking into growing my own stash. Being born and raised in big city have no agricultural experience what so ever. However I water my wife's plants from time to time which makes me think that I'll do just fine . What comes to cannabis use I think I'm very moderate, recreational user. I vape 3-4 times per month always in the comfort of my home. I usually do this when need some stress relief or just want to watch a movie in more relaxed manner. Why Grow?: Well, it's a fair question I suppose, having in mind my moderate use of cannabis. I obviously could make a trip to Amsterdam from time to time for reload. A quarter of an ounce of top-shelf product would last me for a while. The truth is in my recent discovery that cannabis oils and tinctures may help combat psoriasis. I have suffered from it for years and now it's getting even worse and harder to keep under control. Also my mother in law was diagnosed with Alzheimer's couple of years ago and now lives with us. The prescribed drugs (Memantine) does nothing apparently and I wonder if a cannabis-cookie once in a while would slow down that rapid decline of her mental state. I think in my situation growing is the only viable option. Why UK420:? Well, I do believe in education and willing to learn from you guys. I've heard/read a lot of good gossip on how great this community is. I'm determined to learn everything I have to know to become a successful grower and more. It would be great to be able to share our experience, knowledge, medical recipes, ect.. My first question in this forum: When you guys talk about yields is it dried and cured or fresh? What is the standard practice here? That's about it. p.s. I have more questions than answers at the moment, so please be kind and gentle.
