Cannabis growing season

The prohibition of marijuana caused growers to become more innovative. It helped growers create methods of cultivating weed indoors. Today, indoor growing techniques are incredibly sophisticated.

Overall, sativas from regions near the equator have the longest flowering time of all. If you try to develop one of these strains too far north or south, they will die long before harvest time. Meanwhile, if you take a strain out of its natural coastal region and grow it in a warmer midlands area, it will probably flower faster.

DJ Short illustrates the difference between indica and sativa harvest times. He is the man responsible for creating the famous indica strain, Blueberry. He harvests his famous strain in October but waits for another month or two to collect specific sativa strains.

Did you know that the entire harvesting, trimming, drying, and curing process should take at least six weeks?

How Harvesting, Drying and Curing Dictates Availability

Outdoor marijuana has an annual growth cycle.

One of the hardest parts of growing marijuana for newbies is ascertaining the right moment to harvest. If you collect early, the bud should provide a lighter head high. However, the weed is less potent, and the yield is smaller. If you harvest too late, some of the plant’s THC will degrade into CBN. As a consequence, you receive a heavier body high, and some users report feeling nauseous. Obviously, the longer you wait, the more likely it is that pests and diseases will afflict your crop.

Even when you have harvested your crop, there is still a lot of work to do. Some growers like to trim the leaves from the plants while they are still wet. Others want to wait until the plants are dry before getting rid of leaves. You can dry your weed by hanging it upside down in a climate-controlled room. If you dry the flowers too quickly, the result is a bitter flavor. If you dry too slowly, you risk mold growth, and the bud won’t burn properly.

Not All Marijuana Strains Mature at the Same Time

With the pistil method, you are checking to see the percentage of plant hairs that have transformed from white to a reddish-brown color. For most growers, 70-80% is the ‘ideal’ percentage.

Indoor growing has changed the face of marijuana cultivation. It is now possible to grow weed at any time of the year in an indoor setup. You can use lights to mimic the sun’s effect and provide ample nutrients to help your crop grow. Thanks to auto-flowering strains, you can even enjoy the fruits of several bountiful harvests each year.

Cannabis growth is made up of a series of stages that plants undergo during their lifecycle. Each stage during the cannabis cultivation process requires its own unique demands, including different levels of light, water, and nutrients.

Female: Two pistils (the pistil contains the reproductive parts of a flower) will be growing on the buds (flowers grow above these leaves, one cluster on each side).

Male: Small green sacs full of pollen will be seen on the node areas.

It can take anywhere from 4 to 8 months to grow a cannabis plant, this varies based on where you’re growing. If you have an indoor grow room, your plant has the ability to flower after only a few weeks!
