How to Properly Cut & Dry Your Cannabis Plants

Grab your scissors and a beer, because it's cutting time!

I'll show you a way of cutting down that will maximize your yield. This method involves taking larger colas while leaving smaller bud sites to fill in for another week or two.

Some tips to keep in mind before we dive in. Have your dry room ready, fans ready to blow, and fresh scissors. (Always use new scissors.)

What Grow Lights Will Give You the Best Quality Bud?

What Grow Lights Will Give You the Best Quality Bud?

LED Grow Lights are now competitive with and at times outperform older HID technology. The best LED grow lights that give the highest yield per watt will have the most favorable spectrum for plant photosynthesis. LED lights that have 7-8 wavelengths of light along with UV and infrared will give the highest yields and the healthiest, highest quality plant production. It takes 7-8 wavelengths to replicate the photosynthetic action radiation provided by the sun for plant photosynthesis and this is the ideal blend for the highest yielding LED grow lights.

Coalinga City Council Votes to Turn Vacant California Prison into Marijuana Production Facility

Coalinga City Council Votes to Turn Vacant California Prison into Marijuana Production Facility

The Coalinga City Council voted 4-1 Wednesday to turn the abandoned San Joaquin Valley Prison into a marijuana cultivation and cannabis oil production facility.

Coalinga is located in California’s Central Valley and once thrived on the jobs and income brought by the now-vacant prison. Since its closure, the city has entered into $3.2 million of debt—a figure it hopes to eliminate with the revenue brought by the new cannabis cultivation facility.

How to Properly Flush Your Cannabis Plants for Higher Quality & Yield

How to Properly Flush Your Cannabis Plants

Flushing cannabis is a powerful process that cleans out your crops before harvest. Sometimes, depending on strain, plants start to accumulate and build up excess nutrient salts and other harmful substances that will decrease the overall outcome of your end product. Flushing your cannabis just before harvest will rid your plant's internal system of impurities and promote cleaner, safer crops for consumption. You will get tastier, sweeter smelling crops that are of a higher quality and can command top prices.

Get the Most Out of Your Cannabis Plants with Nets & Yo-Yos

Get the Most Out of Your Cannabis Plants Using Nets & Yo-Yos

This was going to be a nets vs. yo-yos article, but I’ll tell you right now, using nets to help cultivate your cannabis is far more useful and helpful than just using yo-yos. That said, however, there is still a good use for your yo-yos; when combined with nets, you'll ensure the highest possible yield and quantity, so let’s take a look!

By supporting the heavy bud locations with nets and yo-yos, we can relieve the plant of having to give energy and time to strengthening its stocks. Instead, the nutrients can focus on bud production, resulting in higher quality product.

Cannabis Oil Production Facility Proposed for Empty San Joaquin Valley Prison

California Prison Could Become a Cannabis Oil Production Facility

The shuttered San Joaquin Valley Prison in Coalinga, Calif., could become the Central Valley’s first cannabis oil production facility.

The Southern California company Ocean Growth Extracts has submitted a proposal to turn the abandoned, 77,000-sq.-ft. former prison into a state-of-the-art marijuana grow and cannabis oil plant, simultaneously bringing 100 jobs and nearly $2 million annually to the struggling city. The proposal was brought to the City Council by Coalinga Mayor Ron Ramsey and City Manager Marissa Trejo and supported by Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Keough, who addressed the Council in favor of the proposal.
