  1. We have had mixed results with Ice Water Hash. And often feel like we're losing some of the hash through the process. If you're in it for getting all that can be collected, I would say research using Iso and do multiple runs.
  2. Hey all, Thanks for the responses. We're just going to shoot our cannabis commission the question. Basically we see a lot of contests on the forums we frequent and want to give back. It's the least we can do for all the info we've received. We're in a legal state and just want to make sure we're compliant, before we do anything. Happy Friday! MM's
  3. Anyone have any links to credible sites regarding giving seeds to people? Either by a face-to-face exchange or mail? This is not selling just giving away. To clarify. We're interested in knowing what laws are in place for seeds in the US and giving them away to people...for FREE... Muhahahahahaha!
  4. Great looking garden you have there. Nice work!!!
  5. Yeah I can't believe the record lows hitting some states right now. It hit close to zero and below in parts of Mass today, but that's really nothing to brag about. Nice babies @shiskaberry savior
  6. There's a reason why the classics are still around and getting crossed back into new newer lines. Nothing wrong with this.
  7. How to Make Homemade Cannabis Chocolate Edibles This is a quick and easy recipe for making delicious cannabis chocolate bars. The recipe includes only 5 ingredients, and also is completed in just 5 simple steps. And really takes between 1-2 hours start to finish. What Ingredients you will need: 1/4 cup cannabis coconut oil (~50 grams) 1/4 cup cacao powder 1 and 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup 1 and 1/2 tablespoons honey 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract optional ingredients: nuts fruits & berries (dried or fresh) peanut butter pieces of chocolate What Supplies you will need: measuring cups and spoons (cup, 1/4 cup, 1/2 teaspoon, 1/2 tablespoon) fork or spoon spatula digital scale pyrex bowl frying pan or flat bottomed pan oven mitten 24 oz (710mL) tupperware optional items: parchment paper whisk Total time: ~ 45 - 120 minutes depends on how long the chocolate bar is allowed to cool during step 5 So, lets start making some homemade cannabis chocolate bars Step 1: Measuring Start by measuring and adding each of the ingredients (cacao powder, cannabis coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, vanilla extract) into the pyrex bowl. We recommend using a scale for measuring out the cannabis coconut oil. It is a great tool for determining approximate strength of your edibles. See determining strength & potency below for more information. Step 2: Heating & Mixing Once all of the ingredients are in the pyrex bowl. Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add water into the pan. Place the pyrex bowl into the frying pan. You want a decent amount of water to be in the frying pan at all times. However not enough so that it will overflow once the water comes to a full boil. Depending on the heat setting, you may need to reapply water to the pan during this step. Remember to only use glassware that is heat tempered such as pyrex glass. If you are not sure, use a smaller sauce pan instead of the glass bowl. As long as water can boil between them it will work fine. Using a spoon or fork or whisk, begin to mix the ingredients. The cannabis coconut oil and other liquids will begin to turn the cacao powder into a gel. Continue to stir vigorously throughout this process. Should the mixture be overly soupy or oily, add more cacao powder in small amounts. Should the mixture be too crumbly and dry add more regular coconut oil (non-cannabis). Most importantly, be aware of the temperature, as you do not want to burn the chocolate. You are simply trying to melt all of the ingredients evenly. Step 3: Pouring the Cannabis Chocolate Once all of the ingredients have dissolved, you are ready to pour the cannabis chocolate into your tupperware container. Turn off the stove and using the oven mittens and a spatula, carefully pour into the tupperware. The spatula will help you retrieve all that was in the pyrex bowl and also level out the bar. Be careful here as the bowl will still be quite hot to the touch. Avoid spilling the chocolate on the upper part of the tupperware as it will not be part of the finished molding at the bottom. Step 4: Freezing the Cannabis Chocolate Bar Depending on how cold your fridge / freezer is, this step can take around 30-60 minutes. If you are not in a rush to make use of your homemade cannabis chocolate edible it can stay in the freezer for months. Step 5: Scoring the Cannabis Chocolate Bar for Proper Dosing This is actually one of the most crucial steps in this process, aside from standard safety while cooking. Once the bar has had time to harden you need to score the bar into even parts. This is really important so that you and everyone who enjoys this bar knows approximately how much they are ingesting. For reference I tend to break it down into 20 or 25 equal pieces. It is always possible to eat more should you realize the dosing is too weak for your needs. Please be careful and do not overdose yourself or others. Determining Strength and Potency of your Cannabis Chocolate Edible Say you use 1 oz of cannabis flower to make a pound of coconut butter. That means you should be 1oz of cannabis distributed throughout that 1 lb of canna coco oil. This recipe uses 50g of canna coco oil. Which is approximately 1/10th of that 1 lb of oil. So you can assume the entire cannabis chocolate bar will then contain approximately 1/10th of an ounce of cannabis or roughly 2.8 grams And by breaking the bar into equal parts, let's say 4 parts, you then can predict the approximate strength from what it started at. In this example each piece of the bar would contain around 0.7 grams of active cannabis oil. Everyone responds to edibles differently. So until you know your own tolerance, start with smaller doses. Additional Notes Long-term Storage: the 24oz tupperware is a cost effective method for creating the chocolate molds, and using the recipe above you can also fit 4 bars into a single tupperware. In the freezer these bars can last for at least 6 months. When using Fruit & Berries: keep in mind that fruit and berries can reduce the shelf-life of your chocolate edibles. They should be always refrigerated, and consumed in no more than 1-2 weeks. Freeze your cannabis chocolate bar for longer storage. Thanks for reading, please leave a comment if you end up making these. Happy Growing!!! MM's

  9. lol I thought MG meant Marijuana growing at first. Under $20 for 2cuFT is a steal. If you have space to store it, I would buy extra just in case their prices change. I use a coco coir mixed medium through Roots Organics. And the retailers around here fluctuate dramatically in price, and online is really overpriced. Cheapest I can do is $20ish / 1.5CuFT. So I buy extra to make up for the drive.
  10. We've found a lot of success using, Soilless Coco Media by Roots Organics. We re-used it for multiple indoor grows. And also added the 3rd generation soil to our outdoor grow mixes. We had to do a little research on vendors and where the deals were. We found it being sold for $35/1.5Cuft at first. Now we get it at $20 a 1.5CuFt bag. For us $20 is great as we get multiple grows out of it. Ideal...no not really. But it works if you're looking to push your gear out a bit to save some, that's our suggestion.
  11. I'll say that's quite a difference. True Haze vs. True Indica effects.
  12. Are those just growing out in your living room Those are some sturdy colas!!!
  13. I haven't tried Cheese strains yet either. Well actually a lot of lines I have yet to sample / grow. No shaming please, but all i have is White widow, Haze, NL and Hash lineages. Never have I ever tried: kush, OG, glue, GSC, diesel, chem and the list goes on. Lol, new varieties have slowed to come into my cabinets now that we're growing our own. And if we take cuttings it's basically the same for most of the year.
  14. That's really cool. Especially for the therapeutic relief. side note, I just spent way too much trying to understand the difference between blue haze (haze x blueberry) and blue dream (blueberry x haze). This is where Leafly I gotta say fails to impress...
  15. Is this really colorful? Fruity pebbles is supposed to have wide color range.
