    It's a wonder someone hasn't come up with a sealed pot growing kit, like those they use for wine making.
    Just add water and leave in sunshine

    It's a weed fer ferks sake.
    How hard can it be to make for yourself?

    Which reminds me---

    Me an this woman was on the phone doin some bidness... an i finaly told her what she wanted (it was unethical) was a deal braker for me... but she wanted to meet the next day an discuss it face to face... i agreed... but a few minutes later i decided to call her back an cancel the meetin cause i wasnt gonna change my mind an it woud be a waste of time for both of us... but when i called her back her atitude had completely changed... she was jovial an said she woud agree to my terms.!!!

    I told my wife about it... an that i have a feelin that they had just smoked some drugs... but we met the next day an got the deal done.!!!

    About a week later... someone we know had been in ther home an told us that they had seen pot an smokin papers in ther house... an a couple of mounths later we learned that they had moved to Arazona... an later on when i read that Arizona alowed a person to grow ther own pot... up to 12 plants an have up to 2.5 oz. of usable pot... i wasnt surprized that they chose Arizona for ther retirement

    Ive also read that pot can be detected in you'r body weeks after you used it... an if you caused an auto accident... you coud be in big trouble if they took a blood test... even tho the pot you used was from weeks ago... ie... sounds like perty risky bidness.!!!

    It's easy to grow as a weed, it's a little more tricky to grow quality sensimilla. I hope to try a hydro grow myself later this year, when it becomes legal in Oregon. I want some White Widow so bad. Commercial weed can be very very good, but it's grown for quantity, not quality. I had some WW once long ago, my GF's uncle grew it himself, it was literally white. We smoked and then sat there speechless. A half hour or so later we looked at each other and laughed it was so amazing. At the time, all we were getting was crappy compressed Mexican with seeds.

    Small "indoor greenhouses" have been available for at least 20 years. It's not quite as simple as you suppose.

    1. You want sin semilla (seedless) because: A. The seeds take a lot of work to remove; B. They account for a considerable portion of the weight that the customer is paying for; C. They have virtually no THC; D. The plant puts a lot of its energy into growing the seeds, resulting in low yield.

    2. What you actually want is buds, because they have a much higher THC content and a much larger percentage of their weight and volume is usable.

    3. In order to avoid going to seed, you have to keep the plants under (real or simulated) daylight 24/7 until you're ready to harvest.

    4. When you're ready, you put the lighting on a 16-hour-on/8-hour-off schedule, which simulates the end of summer and causes the plants to produce buds.

    Unless you live in Alaska (which is actually a fine place to grow it, since it is, in fact a weed that will grow almost literally anywhere), it's impossible to do this outdoors.

    This is why indoor growing has become so popular. An indoor greenhouse that fits in a small closet in an apartment will grow enough weed, year after year, to meet the needs of two people, assuming that they are not maniacs about it and go to work and have other sober, responsible activities on their schedule.

    People who live in rural areas can grow it outdoors, but as I noted, their plants do not produce nearly as much product as indoor greenhouses. So they have to decide between not having as much as they want, vs. growing a large garden which is likely to attract the attention of the authorities.

    In places like Colorado, where cultivation, sale and use is legal, most producers do in fact use indoor equipment.

    Note: I lived in Humboldt County, California, for many years. At the time its huge redwood forests were arguably the center of the U.S. cannabis industry, so it was almost impossible NOT to pick up such information. Apparently cannabis is one of the few plants that thrive in acidic soil, and redwood trees secrete tons of acid into the soil. This discourages the growth of most underbrush, which is why you almost never read about a fire in a redwood forest.

    Don't redwoods require fire to reproduce? Or is that sequoias?

    Sequoia sempervirens is simply the taxonomic classification for the redwood tree. No one I've met can explain why the plant was named after the famous Cherokee chief who invented his language's writing system (a syllabary)... and lived in Tennesee, 2,000 miles from California.

    And no, the redwood is not a plant that requires fire to reproduce

    Technically, correct. But after a fire, the Giant Redwoods will drop their seeds into a fine ash layer, and be able to germinate into a good growing bed, as opposed to the thick litter of needles and branches, which makes the seedling apt to quickly die as the root is not into the soil. Same is true for the coastal redwoods.

    Ah Yes the most edible pot. Limiting voyeur and surveillance dishonesty by making it government present legal. Along with adding "behavioral caution with use".
    And making CVS a civil services standard, whilst creation of employment opportune...and legitimate complaint of surveillance as accosting, self, family, and professionalism.
    it has been known that the media/medical/behavioral sciences, do risk; they basically can submiss their subject more with doubts they can serve to create insecurity based on their 'idealism projects
    apparently.

    'by the way 'hemp milk didn't look like a bad purchase, I guess the milky seeds were either mixed with it for a wealthier taste;or they just "vitamixed it. 'Vitamix is a good product.

    Yet in some ways liquid rush nutritional plans....hmmmm...

    Bristle cone pine..., the cones only open in a fire.

    Redwoods no, sequoia is a variety of redwood.

    I am correct, redwoods are not only well adapted to fire, they thrive around it:

    In addition, fires appear to actually benefit redwoods by causing substantial mortality in competing species while having only minor effects on redwood. A study published in 2010, the first to compare postwildfire survival and regeneration of redwood and associated species, concluded fires of all severity increase the relative abundance of redwood and higher-severity fires provide the greatest benefit.

    To correct my comment on bristlecone pine cones and fire.., the comment came from local lore. We have bristlecone pine in local forests and though fire may not help open the cones, it seems to improve germination and survival of seedlings after a fire. The lore or reports from my youth, probably originated with the fact that sendings do better after a fire, likely for similar reason as with redwoods.., fire eliminates competing undergrowth.

    There are two redwoods, the costal redwood and the inland sequoia, not directly related. Both benefit from fire predominantly because it clears out undergrowth that competes with saplings. There is some suggestion that the sequoia does require fire for the cones to open, but there is also information that suggests that young sequoia, perhaps 20 feet tall in tens years, which would not survive fire any better than competing trees, also produce seed and seedlings? Still both mature redwoods, coastal and sequoia, do benefit from fire that clears out undergrowth and smaller competing trees.

    If the article is referring to the costal redwood, the old growth groves are surrounded by redwood saplings and competing fir and pine etc.. You don't even find redwood saplings deep inside old growth... The old growth will survive even sever forest fires, while any undergrowth and both the surrounding saplings and competing forest are burned out. Reseeding by the mature redwoods has an advantage over surrounding burned out completion.., and the redwood grove expands... Or they used to before they were surrounded by logging which by constantly cutting down the surrounding forest, endangers the protected old growth redwood.
