The cannabis grow bible online

Cannabis enthusiasts take for granted that they like cannabis, but do they know that cannabis also likes them? That is symbiosis. We, as humans, sometimes have the tendency to see things from our own point of view. Imagine seeing things from another. Describe what the earth would look like from the point of view of the moon. Visualize how a stone would seem from the point of view of a sparrow. Picture what the world looks like from the point of view of cannabis. Think about how cannabis sees you.

First I’d like to thank Greg Green who has worked tirelessly on the first edition of the Cannabis Grow Bible and was then willing to return to the material and expand it into what became a truly amazing book. He was hugely motivated to get the best possible information out there to all who wanted to learn about cannabis. Then of course, behind the scenes was the Green Candy Press crew of Patrick, Steph and Ian who all contributed in major ways to the book that you hold in your hands. I’d also like to thank some of the other authors who were amongst the earliest pioneers of cannabis education; Ed Rosenthal, Mel Frank and Jorge Cervantes have all contributed a great amount to our knowledge of cannabis. To all the growers and breeders who’ve shared their knowledge and experience, you have helped the cannabis community take great strides forward. In particular I’d like to thank Delta-9 Labs, DNA Genetics, Dr. Greenthumb, Dutch Passion, Green House Seed Co., KC Brains, Paradise Seeds, Sagarmatha Seeds, Sensi Seeds and Serious Seeds for their years of work on producing amazing new strains. Finally, it would impossible to produce a book like this without the help of amazingly talented photographers; Andre Grossman, David Strange, Ed Borg, Hydro Garden, Kissie, Mel Frank, MG Imaging, Pepper Design, Sativa Steph, Subcool and Zoe Yonge. Overall this book has been a true collaboration and it’s been a real joy to work with such a talented group of people and to bring you the second edition of the Cannabis Grow Bible.

I have been interested in creating the best possible access to cannabis cultivation information for a long time. In 2000, I began to work extensively on compiling a text with a whole new view of cannabis cultivation.This work culminated in the production of the first edition of the Cannabis Grow Bible, published in 2003. The importance of its influence can be seen in cannabis cultivation and books that followed in its wake. I put this revolution down to a few things. The first is that I genuinely wanted to present readers with correct information as opposed to pseudoscience. I feel that the Cannabis Grow Bible is a landmark correction that separates cannabis cultivation mythology from cannabis cultivation reality. Next, I had to deal with putting forward the best reality possible.That meant rediscovering how cannabis cultivation should be done. Not only that, but I had to present the best way of generating the best results. It wasn’t long before I realized that genetics had to play a major role in this.

Explaining genetics to people is not easy, but it is not too difficult either and the rewards for doing so are both intellectually stimulating and very productive. I not only wanted the reader to learn about genetics, I wanted the grower to feel genetics. Without electron microscopes we haven’t a hope of seeing genes themselves, but we can see and understand their phenotypes (how those genes are expressed in the way an organism appears to us).

It isn’t enough just to understand basic genetics though; you have to understand it in terms of how you can get the most from it, learning to work with it as a potter does with clay. I can’t say that regular grow books, such as ones about growing tomatoes, have not had an impact on cannabis cultivation; they have. I suspect, however, that the popularity of cannabis cultivation has had a greater impact on tomato growing.

Claiming to know everything is a strong assertation to make. I believe that a growing manual should try and reference source material as much as possible. I believe growing is a science but I am also aware that it is an art. Every grower has his own point of view, and being critical of another grower’s opinion is not the way to improve. The best grower is critical of himself, always.

My deepest thanks go to open-minded and open-hearted people everywhere who understand the need to research and explore our world. I would like to say thank you to Simi and family. I love you. I would also like to say a special thanks to my publisher and editor for their always-welcome words of wisdom and their dedicated effort in bringing you the best presentation of cannabis cultivation methods possible. They have helpfully criticized various chapters for me. Without them this book wouldn’t be what it is. I would like to ask that if you smoke tobacco, make a promise to yourself to stop. Trust yourself in the hope that you will quit and enjoy the new lease on life you will get from it.

The more control the organic farmer has over the compost, the better the results will be. Reactive organic growing (only doing something when the environment alerts you) is a passive means of maintaining an organic garden, one in which the least amount of attention is paid. Proactive organic growers pay attention to their garden and check it even without prompting.

Rules for Organic Growing

The more worms the better. Get as many as you can. There is a saying that you can never be short of them in vermicomposting and this is true. Obviously, use the maximum you think your system can take. Weigh the amount of worms used. Worms can deal with half their weight per day, so naturally, the worms are able to use half their weight in organic feeds per day. Your scraps can fuel them. If the worms are really active then they can consume their own body weight per day or more. Shade the bin. Do not add more scraps until the old scraps have been used up.

The definitive guide to growing marijuana just got better!

In the Cannabis Grow Bible, Green describes methods for growers who want to maximize yield and potency. Green’s signature style blends a solid understanding of marijuana botany with practical real-world advice to help growers cope with the day-to-day demands of maintaining a high-yield garden. The book covers everything from selecting the best plant genetics to dealing with pests and predators and protecting your crop from prying eyes. It explains the “Screen of Green” technique that gives a higher yield using fewer plants, an important development for American growers who, if caught, are penalized according to number of plants.

The second edition of the Cannabis Grow Bible delivers even more of what growers are looking forfully updated and illustrated, with a new section on organics, all in glorious color!
