The purpose of this book is to show you how to grow enough marijuana to supply all your family's needs. It doesn't matter where you live, or even if you are growing your first plant, because all the information needed to become a master marijuana farmer in your own home, or in the field, is provided in these pages.
The world has seen an enormous increase in marijuana use in the past ten years. Consequently, many governments have sponsored research in order to understand the nature of the plant as well as its psychoactive compounds - substances that are being smoked or ingested by more then 400 million people all over the world. Before the recent interest, marijuanaphiles had only research papers (mostly on hemp
varieties) to glean for information about the plants and their cultivation. Now there are thousands of papers dealing directly with the plants and their use as marijuana. This doesn't mean all is known about marijuana. In
fact, much of what is discussed deals with unknown aspects of these ancient and mysterious plants. The mysteries, however, are beginning to unravel.
Our information resources include our personal experience with growing and the experience and knowledge shared with us by marijuana growers all across the country. We also rely on the professional research of many scientists (see the Bibliographic Notes). For the experienced growers, we've included the latest
research on increasing potency, some ideas for improving yield and controlling flowering (time of harvest), and also procedures for breeding quality strains suited to a particular growing situation.
Some of the best grass in the world is grown right here in the United States (that is our very own stoned opinion of homegrown gratefully sampled from Hawaii to Maine). You can do it too - it's not magic, and it's not difficult to do. Highly potent plants can be grown indoors, as well as in gardens, fields, and the wilds. Indoor growers must create an environment, whereas outdoor gardeners work within the environment. Following these two approaches to cultivation, this book is divided into separate, parallel parts on indoor and outdoor sections, preceded by some background information on marijuana plants, and followed by general procedures
for breeding, harvesting, etc., that are independent of the type of growing site.
Cultivation is not a complicated process, and we hope we don't make it appear difficult. But even if you're a novice when you first sow your seeds, your questions on the plants and their cultivation will become more complex as you gain experience and insight. We hope we have anticipated your questions with solid and clearly stated answers; we intend this book to serve as a guide long after your first reading and harvest.
There are probably as many ways to grow marijuana as there are marijuana farmers. We hope to impart an understanding of the plants and their cultivation, so that you can adapt the knowledge to fit your particular situation - where you live, the land or space available, and the time, energy, and funds at your disposal.
Modest indoor gardens are quite simple to set up and care for. All the materials you'll need are available at nurseries, garden shops, and hardware and lighting stores, or they may be found around the house or streets.
The cost will depend on how large and elaborate you make the garden and on whether you buy or scavenge your materials. With a little ingenuity, the cost can be negligible.
It takes about an hour every three or four days to water and tend to a medium-sized indoor garden. Outdoors, a small patch in your summer garden can supply all your smoking needs with little or no expense.
Generally, marijuana requires less care than most other crops, because of its natural tenacity and ability to compete with indigenous weeds. Hardy Cannabis resists mild frost, extreme heat, deluge, and drought. In this country, few diseases attack marijuana; once the plants are growing, they develop their own natural protection
against most insects.
In some areas of the country, such as parts of the Midwest and East, the plants may require no more attention than sowing the seeds in spring and harvesting the plants in autumn. But if you're like most growers, you'll yourself spending more and more time in your garden, watching the tiny sprouts emerge, then following their
development into large, lush, and finally resinous, flowering plants.
Nurturing and watching these beautiful plants as they respond can be a humanising experience. Marijuana farmers know their plants as vital living organisms. If you already are a plant grower, you may understand. If not, read through this book, imagining the various decisions you, as grower, would be making to help your
plants reach a full and potent maturity. Then make your plans and get started. There's just no reason to pay $50 an ounce for superior smoke when it grows for free. Free, grass, free yourself.
This book is the result of the efforts of many people, each of whom contributed uniquely to its final form and content. First there are the many growers who opened their hearts and gardens to us. Our love and thanks to our friends in California (Calistoga, Calavaras, Humbolt, Orange counties, and the Bay Area), the Umpqua Valley, Oregon, Eastern Colorado, Central Florida, Eastern Massachusetts, Upstate New York, New York City, Atlanta, Hawaii, and Port Antonio, Jamaica. We would also like to thank everyone who wrote and shared their growing experiences with us.
