WOWOW that Grapefruit looks very cool. Nice all 'round really. :0)
It has beautiful colors, I’ll have to take pics with the light off, you can see how much red the 1750k are throwing out, the plants seem to love it so far
I added the 100w vero setup from timber it wasn’t in use and now the 3x3 should really rock out,so that’s a total of 300w
I was doing very well with a measly 200w
2018 olympics have begun!
Very nice journal and grow. Really like seeing someone rock the 2gal hempy, and taking on several tents,,,, more ambition than I have.
It’s a lot of work at the moment. I was just flowering with the 4x4 as this is more than enough for me. The other two tents , one is for a cousin that has MS, fortunately a lot of symptoms can be managed, but he needs at least an ounce a week to properly medicate(and Sativa Dom always better for him, all the jillybean ). The other tent is turned into straight RSO oil for a close friends mother who has serious health issues , she also really enjoys topicals I make her from coconut oil.
It’s beyond worth it in my opinion, especially because our health care and pre exist is up in the air
Thanks for stopping by
Update on that jilly, I found a couple seeds on the last candy pheno, none at all on the orange ones. Have a candy store going now the two show a nanner each, late flower, both on top buds
Hey Howard, I had to delete a post last night....I added a reference to
your old handle....thinking that Watt knew you as that character....
I wanted to ask if this was OK?
(I remembered FJG as a good dude ;0)
I appreciate you asking , yes it’s fine.
I don’t know if watt remembers my old handle FJG , but I remember him
This was my first hempy bucket grow, been doing hempy since ....
Jillybean tent, orange phenos estimated day 63
OMG!!! Your a boss! Very good
These are about 4 weeks
Very kind words thank you !
Last night I made the canna caps
I used 40 grams jillybean (orange pheno) cured buds, grinded in coffee grinder perfect, decarbed at 220 for 45min
Took that decarbed bud put it into 1.2 cups of coconut oil, with 1.1 tablespoon sunflower lecithin , in mason jar and placed jar in simmering water for 3.5 hours
Strained , cooled and filled up about 175 #00 size caps before I ran out of capsules, could maybe fill another 25-50
Will be trying them first tonight, start with one and work up. Edibles have never worked for me so my expectations are low, but still will er on the side of caution... should be strong for most users I reckon
.8 ml fills exactly one pill
So 236.5 ml in a cup, a little water that I added(tbs or so before hit bath) boiled off so the math seems to make sense, trying to figure out est. dose if possible ... trying to estimate using a range of 15% thc in cured bud
Got 000 size capsules on the way to see difference
Using a formula from :
I would guess them to be between 12 to 16 mg each capsule
I could be wrong, math is not my thing.
Took down last of the jillybean, no more after this.
The Area 51 led still rocking it out, that’s only 150 watts... I think made the buds even frostier than the cobs, couple variables though
Still a nice harvest for a 2.5ft x 3ft space
Lovely work Bro.
How did the test go witht he new caps? Was the dose right?
For the five people that tested them said 2 to 3 was a good dose, mild pain relief at 1 capsule.
For me on the other hand tolerance and edibles not working on me in the past I was skeptical, first day took about one per hour ending at 10. By the third day I finally felt decent effects and did not have to smoke throughout the day, but this is at upwards of thirty capsules.
I do really like the idea though, and I hope it will work for my cousin with some relief from his MS
As for the yield with the 3 x 2.5ft tent with 150 watt of Area 51 LED lighting I am pretty satisfied.
115 grams of dense average size nugs , I trim conservatively and throw aside and small buds and popcorn for hash and edibles etc
Popcorn small buds and larf another 105 grams
If I trained the tops better , trimmed the underskirt up more or mainlined them my bud ratio would be much higher. But I just let the bushes do their thing this time
Took down grapefruit, creeper and the REM
