  1. So what are the more narcotic/indica USC strains available in sanniesshop now? I am interested in Ouzbek and Turkish.
  2. I have enjoyed Elements, various Raw products, and Bob Marley brand, with Raw tips. I like the idea of smoking hemp papers because the whole joint is cannabis, but I can't say I can tell too much of a difference there. The only place I've been able to tell much difference is that some thicker rolling papers seem harsh on the first, mostly paper, hit. I feel like after that first hit, I'm getting something a little more harsh. I just try to go with thin, smaller papers i.e. less paper, more pot. .3 gram seems a little small for a joint rolled by a grower, but just play with it-whatever works for you. I use a rolling machine. I used to roll ones that were about .9 grams, but now that some of the length is taken up by the Raw tips, and I use some shorter papers sometimes, it's probably around .6 grams maybe. Good luck getting off the tobacco. I think it's worth it for health.
  3. My understanding of cotyledons is that they feed the plant during a time when it does not feed from soil/nutes. Does ph matter when the plant is feeding from the cotyledons? With the wrong ph, can you cause nutrient lockout from the cotyledons? I grow my plants in coir with hydro nutes. I have not checked ph when watering the babies with plain water from the tap. However, I have had slower growth during this period and I'm wondering if ignoring ph is creating sub-optimum conditions. My tap water is higher ph than pot plants want.
  4. Great input, y'all. This definitely opened mind and put a spotlight on the actual growing vs. curing process. I've noticed that a lot of ganja issues go back to the fundamentals: nutrients, water, air, medium, temperature, etc. There are many junctures at which I could up my game.
  5. In the past year, I have traveled to a couple of legal recreational states, Washington and Colorado. The pot there has been great, if you pay $14 plus per gram in my experience. Potency-wise, I have been able to somewhat keep pace with sanniesshop genetics, which is great. The areas where these states are crushing me is smell and flavor. When I grew organically in soil, it was definitely better, but I ain't goin' back. Hydro is just too easy for me, just seems to work better with my overall approach to growing/life. Is it just curing practices? I started working on my curing recently, using hygrometers, and I did improve a lot. I live in the desert and pot dries very quickly here. Are these states just curing really well. How are these states getting their bud so stinky? I'm assuming they all use hydro. Maybe they're organic?
  6. I just got Jahlicieus in the mail today. It sounds, well, jahlicieus. Can't wait to grow it. If it's relaxing, got some blueberry genetics, I'm down.
  7. I just got a shipment from sannie to the Southwest US in about a week from the Netherlands. Stealth method was killer. These are the fastest shipments I have gotten in my whole sannie career, which is years. My area is known for slow mail, so things will sit at my local post office for a day or two, it seems. Dude is definitely back in the saddle.
  8. Update. i just got another shipment from sannie, in a similar, but slightly different stealth method. Also got here in less than a week. That's the last two shipments, with the new method, getting to Southwest, US in under a week. I would say it's game on. I'm gonna order like crazy as usual. One of my orders took 3 shipments to get here. Sannie was really cool about reshipping. I was kind of hanging back from new orders because I was waiting on 2 or 3 to get here. Now everything's here. I have been through this cycle a couple of times over the years with sannie. The shipments start getting taken, he switches methods and then it's cool again for a long time. Anyway, I would not worry about deliveries getting to the US at this point.
  9. That kind of list is always interesting to me as a purely seed grower. I do not grow all year, and stop for 4 months a year, so I am always starting over with seed. A lot of that list is clone-only, which is the opposite of me because I can't keep clones. A clone might be great, but its progeny are inherently questionable until they're tested. Getting these genetics crossed with something else-or selfed-is getting somewhat dubious if you're seed-only like me. Muhammad Ali was a great fighter, and I think 2 of his daughters were pro boxers, but not every kid of Ali went pro. If you want that Ali mojo, you're probably better off cloning him than trying to breed it from him, crossing him with other individuals. I guess my point is that these strains are relevant to us growers if a. We can get these actual clones and not fakes (I can't in my medical, but lame, state) or b. We are willing to explore the quality of their offspring, and accept the consequences. Another annoying thing about trendy clones: you know there are guys all over the planet (many of these guys and gals are opengrow members) who have clones that are every bit as good as anything on that list. Some guy in Indiana probably has some cut that could crush that whole list, but Indiana is not the environment where that clone is going to achieve any kind of fame.

    Mad Scientist?

    I would agree with the above. It does seem like you need to veg longer. I've never gotten too much yield off it, probably for lack of veg. White widow is a big yielder, but herijuana not so much. The effects are as advertised.
  11. I grew this with shackzilla and the shackzilla yields were like double those of strawberry blues. I experienced the SB yields as solidly average on 2 plants I grew, a small sampling admittedly. I love the high. Me, my wife, our friend, we were all indica curmudgeons. We thought indica was relaxation and pain relief and sativa was panic attack, all mental. This stuff has got the 3 of us totally reexamining our attitudes toward sativa. We love it for daytime relaxation, pain relief, and uplifted mood. Smells like fruit/strawberry. Very impressed with NAW. These two plants were similar to each other and seemed to live up to the breeders' very cool vision/goal. Wonderful stuff. Special and unique. I would grow it again, and I would order most of their strains on the strength of this experience.
  12. Fwiw, I just received a reship from sanniesshop in less than one week to the US. He used a new method and it worked. Looks like he's back in the saddle. I'm sure this has been thought of: but it seems to me that the white number 10 envelope with a printed label is the most common piece of mail, in the US at least, and seems like it would be unstoppable because of its boring and ubiquitous nature. Another suggestion fromMaster of the Obvious, but I thought I would put that out there.
  13. Way to go! You persevered and are harvesting bud. The American Dream. This is a new dawn for you. As a pot smoker, you are now in control and you grow the pot that makes you feel the way you want to feel (or gives you the desired medical results). You are n longer at the mercy of a legal or illegal drug dealer who doesn't know shit about weed. Now you are the expert because you monitor that ganja from cradle to grave.

    Kitchen Safety!

    Man, can you tell me more about this hand cream, link to recipe, whatever? I have never experienced transdermal pot, but it sounds interesting.
  15. That sucks. Whatever feelings people may have about Emery, he introduced a ton of people to grow pit and advanced the cause of legalization. Cannabis Culture started me on pot growing because all those strains in his catalogue sounded too good to ignore.
