Hellraiser grows Gorilla Glue and other stuff

I have a few grows under my belt now but always learning on this site. I use Happy Frog, works good. I started using Coast of Maine soil, that’s some good stuff. Miracle Gro is an absolute no good for Marijuana.

@Hellraiser First off, thanks for taking the time to pass along your knowledge to the rest of us. I know I’m not alone when I say, it’s greatly appreciated.

I grew, both inside and out, from 1972 until about 1985 and am getting back into it this year. After reading the forums for months I have just enough knowledge to be a menace to plants…

Question, I’m in the process of transplanting my 15 plants and when done they will be staying outdoors for the duration. I have yet to check the pH of our rainwater so the numbers used are hypothetical.

Let’s say that the rainwater is 5.5, or maybe 7.9. I’m not using rainwater to water, its what the plants will get when it rains. If that pH is high, or low, would I stick with 6.5 when I water or run higher, or lower, in order to compensate for the pH of the rainwater. Kinda like an offset.

I’m running Happy Frog soil with 10-11 quarts of Perlite per 2 cubic foot bag.

Hot soil then is the answer.

I’d stick with 6.5 ph and let the rain do it’s thing.

I had the same problem with my first grow. Switched over to CoCo and Jacks 321. Worked like a charm. You can see the difference in my two grows purely from the media the seeds were placed in.

Thanks! That’s what I thought…

Trying to compensate for the rain would probably be a lot like chasing the wind.

@Hellraiser you ever hear of delta 8 thc, from hemp? I’m trying to find out if it’s some gimmick or anything worth looking into. My wife is interested in it because it’s supposed to be helpful with anxiety, without the same high I like.

Delta 8 is “made from hemp”. It’s legal due to the agriculture bill passed in 2018. Regular cannabis is delta 9.
Not a gimmick definitely gets you high. The high doesn’t seem to be as intense as delta 9. I’ve had the gummies and the carts from moonwlkr. There carts are better than most others and also better than some delta 9 carts I’ve gotten. I take a gummy about two hours before bed and it helps me sleep very well.
There is also delta 10 hitting the market currently. Delta 10 is said to be more of an MDMA feeling high. I don’t know though I haven’t tried it yet.
This excerpt is from the moonwlkr.com website.
Delta-8 THC is a rare cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. Delta-8 THC is psychoactive but less intoxicating than Delta-9 THC. Most users have described Delta-8 as, “a sweet spot between CBD and THC.”

I recently tried some delta 8, a friend saw some at a local tobacco shop and bought a few pre-rolls to check out ($12 each though) and gave me one. I felt a little bit high after smoking it but not nearly as high as I’d be from even my weaker strains and it didn’t last very long. It was a “different” kind of high as well. It was stronger than CBD flowers I’ve smoked (which I felt almost nothing) but not really for me I think, doubt I’d ever buy any but worth a try.

Delta 8 is a big thing in my area right now. Pre-rolls aren’t that great IMO…stick with gummies or vape. D8 works…definitely in between CBD and D9.

Pointed side down is so…? Doesn’t get tangled in seed casing is my guess?! Just googled it and it says pointed end up?? Typo maybe. Im going with your move @Hellraiser .

I go pointy side down as that’s the side that opens up so the root can just push straight down and the sprout and seed cover just goes straight up. Though the sprout will sort it out either way you plant the seed, I just go with the path of least resistance.

Speaking of seed planting, a thing I used to do when I used potting soil, was to go thru the potting soil and pick out any sticks and twigs and break up any clumps. I’ve seen sprouts get hung up on stuff and don’t want anything slowing down seedlings, a good start makes for continued fast growth.
