PGR 'Cali' weed.

68 posts in this topic

been researching lots and lots recently and have come to the conclusion that pretty much everything I have toked for years has been grown using some form of pgr. No internodal spacing. Hard as rocks. Like you couldn't squish this stuff between your fingers no matter how hard you tried.. But it's always extremely coated in trichromes and very very tasty most times.. Normally a fab and very strong high too. Rough but very satasfying throat hit in the bong.. brilliant aftertaste.. I'm a little worried that it's going to be really tough to replicate this same quality.. I know everyone is always dissing the booster crap ruining quality and It's definately bad not endorising it but WTF?! I don't think I'm going to be able to get it how i'm used to having it without using all this crap. raging with it TBH. :wallbash:

someone with a bit of knowledge set me right please. :wassnnme:

I know what you mean. I have had similar thoughts about most commercial weed being full of PGRs.

 

However I am now not so sure. I have achieved quite hard buds on occasion, and now think that extremely hard buds are within the reach of the home grower with the right genetics and skills.

TBH I'm sure I'll be blown away with my own stuff when it comes down. Natural to worry and that I suppose. ;)
Just to clarify fuck using this shite BTW agree completely. only ones I would consider would be tricatonal which
is supposed to be secret ingrident in that canna boost. Fuck knows. lol

aye canna boost sweetens the flowers no end + it put some body in them,in soil i`d not bother as for some strange reason i never had the same effect as when running coco... or soiless  i use buddy week 2 / 4...then a break sor 2 weeks then i hit them up with pk 14 / 15 and canna boost from week 5 onwards ;)  im jest about to hit my dope up with a few shots of buddy as im approaching week 2 flipped. :beer:   my dope aint to shabby. :skin_up:

Genetics/environment  and a vac packer lol ...commercial buds have normally been vac pack half of erm didn't look that way when went in..don't get me wrong iv grown buds like rocks but you can normally see most commercial has been vacked up..

Iv smoked a few cali bits also you will notice if you get some genuine tins/jars packege in house it's not always rock buds ..this is because it dosnt get vac packed  and you also may notice the trichomes are not squished much like when we  grow our own...:yinyang:

If it's good bud, it hasn't had pgr's. They kill the potency and terpines by about 30%, if you're lucky.

I've grown a few plants that had nugs so firm you could bounce them off a table, wedding cake was one, maybe seedman's jack herrer was another.  It ain't all chemicals, get the right plant in the right conditions and it'll fly :)

 

@thekingofobsolete interesting what you say about canna boost not making so much of a diff in soil (I grow in soil).  I'm just looking up now to see if I even need to bother with a boost, as I've changed from jug feeding to a drip feed system, so I've had to change nutes from biobizz, I've gone to canna.  Only using a/b at the min, and was looking for info on if it's worth getting a bottle of boost or not bother.  I'm not really fussed about yield, looks like i'll get pretty good it was more a question of improving the quality.

I've been saying for years and @Owderb Will back me up. 

 

Grow and bloom all that is needed to grow A+ grade weed

 

 

Boosters lotions and potions are for cash croppers and people with more money than growing skill imo 

 

 

You don't even catch me adding pk boosters, never mind pgrs. 

Genetics are they key but rock hard bud doesn't nesesarily equal good bud.  

 

 

Bollocks to squashed hormonal chemical bursting bud 

 

 

Have a joint of Dr grinspoon or another straggly looking 16 week sat and change how you view weed forever

Totally agree.

 

Bit of Root stim doesn't hurt either.
