  1. I Bet it Must be the Valley Ghash too lol , funny how your wrote that. Gorgeous plant, TY For the gift. She is a beauty and easy to grow. Think she put out a nice yield too. So the experts say hehehe this is Valley Ghash from Mota
  2. gardenartus


    Love the color and smell on this!
  3. That is what it did to me too.
  4. People don't want it with seeds, and there are enough growers out here, they can be and will be Picky. Best not to risk it. Yea That PS was so gorgeous! Thought I was gonna be a lucky one and not have her hermie, gosh darn thing was huge too. Shame she is a hermie.
  5. Oh shit no, just went through the Purple Storm mess, you have other things growing in there? It seeded out my Whole garden. If you have other plants, dump that witch.
  6. What a nice thing to say, that is so kind and makes my day I have found the indica is the best for bi-polar, sativa in small dosing some can use, but over all indica is the best choice I've found.
  7. You can feel an "adjustment" but it is not like a THC high, you might feel a slight buzz but it quickly wears off and it is a happy type feeling. She gives most great pain relief, she seems to work very well for back pain, gives you mind clarity, energy, some actually can sleep on her - I can not. Mood disorders do not do so well on CBD Bi-polar really should not use her. In smaller doses OCD isn't too bad, larger dosing can really set it off. Some with ADD and ADHD do well on her, but really should be dosed upward if any of those issues are present. Start small just to make sure, some folks have no clue they have issues until they use CBD. CBD heals Brain cells, will reverse stroke symptoms She will fight a certain type breast cancer better then THC, she helps with Alzheimer's, Parkinsons. MS, Lupus. But some have issues with her, such as Lyme patients some have to be careful of larger dosing. If you get the type like this, almost no THC, several can use her who have to drop for work, and they do not drop dirty. I use this, really helps with MS fatigue and brain fog. I have several patients that swear by her for day use. One if they take too much, cleans house all night lol. It gives us a really nice option, other then THC. TY Papalag Decarb at 220 for one hour. If making the concentrated oil, instead decarb in the liquid state, but for medibles, tinctures, butters, decarb the herb prior to making the product. This was from Clone, I believe the Cannatonic 4 is clone only. There are some really good breeds on the market now that are really high in CBD and low in THC. Papalag I new one I just experimented with. These are mango jellies, they do not have gelatin in them. They stayed solid and firm through out this heat wave we are having. So next will be medicated.
  8. She is a really nice CBD, she has almost no THC in her. She is the one I made the oil from.
  9. Canna #4, she pulled pretty well. Pics are not the best
  10. LOL you got me, here I was so worried about you! ha ha ha
  11. That is interesting. One of the labs here has testing for Sexing your genetics lol no kidding, have to look to see how many leaves it must have, but 99.9% guarantee they can tell you the sex, no wait time on sexing.
  12. That is what I was told, if I put my oil on parchment paper I would have shatter in 7 to 10 days, no one around me uses it lol so haven't tried. I should at least try it to see how it comes out.
  13. This was a long haul working through everything. There were other health issues that do well with CBD, Not for Bi-polar. Energy needed, NO Sativa for Bi-Polar. Honestly, It is Indica, all the way around. No matter what combo was tried. The others set it off, too easily, and dosage has to be very spot on. I am sticking to low dose Indica for day and a bit higher for sleep. This is working I will never try to use other things with a Bi-polar patient, it just is not worth them having to go through what they do on CBD and Sativa. Sticking to good ole indica
  14. I stole that, I should have put the link up lol I put a bit of citric acid in my res, tiny amount, it dissipates the chlorine. Guess you could do that with Vit C too, but never tried.
  15. You can make your own of that. Let me see if I can find you some links PH Down Supplies: (1) 2 L Bottle - Labeled as ACID - $1 (1) Funnel - $1 (1) Box of battery acid - Auto Part Store - $7 (1) Set of measuring spoons - $1 (1) 1 gal of distilled water - $1 Grand Total: $11 Precautions: Use safety glasses, rubber gloves, and well ventilated areas. NEVER POUR WATER INTO ACID!!! Always pour SMALL amounts of acid in LARGE amounts of water, SLOWLY!!! Procedure: Fill the 2 L bottle with about 3/4 full with distilled water. This bottle should already be labeled for its intents and purposes. Prepare your battery acid and measuring spoons. With your measuring spoons mix the acid from the store with water in a 1:10 ratio. That is ONE part ACID, TEN parts WATER. For those lacking mathematical skill: ~180 mL of sulfuric acid in the 2 L bottle. This should bring the solution from 33% acid to 3.3% acid. Still, VERY DANGEROUS TO STORE AND HANDLE. Slowly pour the acid into the funnel, into the 2 L bottle making sure that the bottle doesn't over-heat. If it does, you are going to the hospital and forget any holiday pictures from now on. Once you have enough acid in the container to have the 10:1 ratio, fill the remaining volume with distilled water. Seal the lid and gently turn the bottle up-side down and back until fully mixed. Do this slowly. PH Up Supplies: (1) 2 L bottle - Labeled as BASE - $1 (1) Funnel - $1 (1) 2 lb dry sodium hydroxide by Roebic - Lowe's - $12.98+ tax (1) Set of measuring spoons - $1 (1) 1 gal of distilled water - $1 (FREE! with a clean dehumidifier or reverse osmosis filter on a water outlet.) Grand Total: ~$18.00 Precautions: Use safety glasses, rubber gloves, and well ventilated areas. NEVER POUR WATER INTO A BASE!!! Always pour SMALL amounts of base in LARGE amounts of water, SLOWLY!!! Procedure: Fill the 2 L bottle with about 3/4 full with distilled water. This bottle should already be labeled for its intents and purposes. Prepare your caustic base (sodium hydroxide, or lye) and measuring spoons. SLOWLY pour (1) 1 tbsp of your base into the 2 L bottle. Slowly swish the solution to ensure a good mix of the dry granules. After all of the base has been mixed in slowly add more distilled water until nearly full. Remember, if you mix this stuff too fast it will explode.. and possibly kill you. Now, get an eye dropper and use three drops at a time on a test gallon to figure out the concentration. Unless you have the equipment to measure the granules by mass and calculate molarity of the aqueous solution you will have to test the strength of every batch. The good thing is, this is so cheap and effective it will be worth it. Now you have enough pH Up for 2 years of constant use. This means 2 years for heavy hydroponics, a decade for soil if you ever need it. Now, there is a better option than the sodium hydroxide. There are plenty of aquatic shoppes that stock calcium hydroxide, which would be a better choice since plants need the calcium anyways. You can also use potassium hydroxide. I've heard some use lemon juice, baking soda. But it is fairly cheap so I don't bother, just buy it here.
  16. CBD would work great for you for day, as long as you don't have any mood disorders, it sets them off. But if no mood disorders, gives great pain relief, energy, and mind clarity, it is also a great anti inflammatory, Very good for day use, or sativa. Sativa gives ya a happy high, once again as long as you don't have mood disorders lol Use an assortment of Indica strains for the best Green Dragon.
  17. That sounds outright healthy now! May I ask what PIPS are?
  18. They gave me a call, but it was the smell for the bud that was sent with the seeds lol. I agree with DesertGrown, probably a worker.
  19. LOL folks have told me, make a big batch of things Unmedicated, so when we use the medicated, we have em to munch on lol. Like Lays, you can't just eat one
  20. I stole this recipe off the net and modified it Ingredients: 3/4 cup cannabutter, softened to room temperature, This Makes about 60 small cookies, to make 50mg cookies use 3000mg butter. 1 cup granulated sugar 1 large egg at room temperature 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon peppermint oil 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder (or dutch process) 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/8 teaspoon salt Dipping 14 ounces quality semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil 1/8 teaspoon peppermint oil if not tempering the chocolate for dipping add 1 to 2 ounces of beeswax, if you temper it creates a nice shine without the mess on your fingers Directions: Make the cookies: In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter for 1 minute on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy. Add the granulated sugar and beat on medium high speed until fluffy and light in color. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, and peppermint oil on high speed. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Sift the flour and cocoa powder together in a medium bowl. Whisk in the baking powder and salt until combined. On low speed, slowly mix into the wet ingredients until combined. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Roll each portion out onto a piece of parchment to about 1/4″ thickness. Stack the pieces (with parchment paper between) onto a baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Chilling is mandatory. If chilling for more than a couple hours, cover the top dough piece with a single piece of parchment paper. You can chill up to 2 days. Once chilled, preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line 2-3 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Remove one of the dough pieces from the refrigerator and using a small round cookie cutter ( a juice glass might be the correct size, I used the bottom of a jello cup mold), cut in circles. Transfer the cut cookie dough to the prepared baking sheet. Re-roll the remaining dough and continue cutting until all is used. Bake for 8 minutes-- the cookies will still appear soft. Make sure you rotate the baking sheet halfway through bake time. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before dipping in chocolate. (This might take a bit, don't push it, once cooled I place them in the freezer, this makes dipping them in the chocolate easier) Once the cookies are cool, begin melting the chocolate: Melt the chopped chocolate and oil together in a double boiler or (carefully!) use the microwave. For the microwave, place the chocolate and oil in a medium heat-proof bowl. Melt in 15 second increments, stirring after each increment until completely melted and smooth. You might want to take the time to temper your chocolate, if not you will want to add some beeswax, hard to melt, do it on a double boiler, then add it to the chocolate. Once melted, stir in the peppermint oil. Dip each cooled cookie completely into the chocolate and use a fork to lift out. Tap the fork gently on the side of the bowl to allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place cookie onto a parchment or silicone baking mat-lined baking sheet. Make ahead tip: Cookies freeze well up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator if desired. You can chill the cookie dough for up to 2 days. You can also freeze the cookie dough before rolling for up to 3 months. Then allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Then allow to come to room temperature for about 1 hour. Then roll and continue with the recipe as directed. When you cut these, if you don't want to dip them in chocolate, they are good without it Use cocoa to dip your cookie cutter in, it will keep your cookie nice and dark without the added flour markings. You could possible roll these in logs, place in fridge for an hour or two, wrapped in wax paper, then slice them instead of using a cookie cutter. You have to make sure you place the dough in the fridge for at least an hour before hand or they wont' set up as well. These rise but spread so very little you can get these all on two baking sheets. You can place them very close, but give them just a bit of room. If they cook together while baking they lose their perfect round shape. I use Wiltons melting pot for the chocolate, I really love this, it makes it much easier if you dip a lot of foods. If you try these let me know how they turn out!
  21. LOL I make those too, ground up Somoans ha haha Those are hard to make, that coconut stuff does not want to stick to the cookie, Those are my Big Bizz days ha haha think more ends up in me then on the cookies, messy!
