in a different light.
In fact, the conceptual difficulties which plague the advocates of the psychotomimetic
position are even more fundamental than this. The charge is not simply that cannabis
generates psychosis-like states. It is that being high on marijuana is a psychosis-like state.
The very nature of the experience is abnormal, according to many medical observers. For
instance, the Lexington studies'26 assertion that cannabis has psychotomimetic
properties relies on a questionnaire, a battery of questions which purport to measure the
degree to which the subject is suffering a psychosis-like state. Yet, when the items in the
questionnaire are examined, they contain almost nothing that would qualify as a true
clinical psychosis, or anything like it. The general psychotomimetic questions include: "Is
your skin sensitive?" "Are you happy?" "Are colors brighter?" "Time passes slowly." "Are
you having a lot of thoughts?" "Do you feel silly?" "Is your hearing keener?" The
statements specifically related to marijuana (actually THC) include: "My thoughts seem to
come and go." "My appetite is increased." "I notice things around me which I have not

In other words, what is labeled a psychotomimetic experience is nothing more than the
characteristics associated with the marijuana high. The fact that any of these items were
actually used to measure a state labeled a psychosis is nothing more than a display of the
researchers' prejudices, a display of an archaic epistemological ethnocentrism which
rejects any and all experience which does not fit the narrow positivistic mold. This form
of reasoning clearly illustrates the interpenetration of science and ideology—ideology
parading as science. The marijuana experience is, of course, different from "normal."
Marijuana is a psychoactive drug; it influences the mind, influences perceptions. This is,
in fact, precisely one of the main reasons why it has the appeal it has to some. Some
people may like this state, and others may not. But is it madness? How frail are the facts
in the path of the mighty concept!
Thus, the attribution to marijuana of psychotomimetic properties is an ideological and
political act. It involves a definitional process of deciding that certain psychic
manifestations subsequent to smoking marijuana in fact (1) may properly be characterized
as psychotomimetic in nature; (2) are generated by the drug; and (3) are not typical of, or
generated by, substances of which society approves. There is a tacit assumption in
descriptions of adverse reactions to pot that the laws prohibiting this substance are
legitimate, and that one of the reasons why it is outlawed (and should continue to be
outlawed) is that it is capable of producing a psychotic episode. Yet there is a mirror
process at work; not only must we ascribe to marijuana a causal nexus with temporary
psychoses, we must A mixture was obtained

This plant suffered from shading of taller plants but did OK considering. It was kept mainly for how well it did

This bad boy girl grew a fat top bud and may have been the heaviest of the three if it didn’t suffer from
some overcrowding vs. the top producer. This bad girl also had the heaviest covering of resin. This has
potential to be a producer except for the long flower period, which would need to be dealt with if you’re into

probably should have been. So just figure a 9 weeker for now.
5- Yep this is the braided one and this is what was meant. The plant was trained so that the main stem was
horizontal. Looking at the big bud from eye level gave you a city skyline look with the buds, which look like
braided hair with the big calyxes. This plant also had a nice covering of resin and was the stronger of the 2 that
were smoked. It was also the heaviest plant. The one possible problem with this plant is that it did show a
male flower or two early in flowering but that was it. An eye was kept on it and it didn’t show another sign of
male flowers until a few days before harvest. The late start of a male flower or two could very well have been
due to leaving them to flower too long before chopping day."

It was harvested much too late which could have caused this type of buzz. There seemed to be an edge to the

improve with age and better growing conditions.

and has 4 colas about 18" long each. These are really packing on the weight now. The secondary budding is
amazing. I pruned all the lower branches and leaves before flowering but this has all grown back now.
Everywhere you look is bud. Even the lower buds that don't get much light are frosted with crystal (not as dense
as the upper bud but I'm sure it will be tasty).
I noticed what seemed to be a male flower on one of the "normal" females and pulled it at 5 weeks. I thought
it was a male flower because it had a stem. I noticed the same thing on the outstanding female but left it. It

Grow and Bloom:
Some of the double packs come in two different sets - Grow
and Bloom. Basically the Grow solution is used during the plants
vegetative stage and the Bloom is used during the flowering stage. The
Bloom formulas contain more Phosphorus and Potassium and less
Other packs have a complete all in one function, but they are
lacking some additional extras.
Cannabis may find a lot of the nutrients that are mixed full
strength to be too strong and it will burn them. It is recommended that
when using any hydroponics formulations with cannabis that you do so
in MODERATION for your first grow. Many cannabis growers have
bought these products with anticipation of producing great buds only
to get great plant burns instead. It is best to start off with 30% strength
at first and then increase if needed.
Marijuana cultivators have found that full strength nutrient
solutions are not a good thing. In fact even medium strength formulas
have the power to burn your plants. Consult the information on the
packs, but in general 3.5 mls of A and B and C per liter is usually
called 100% strength. The same amount mixed with 2 liters of water is
50% strength. Marijuana can grow very well between 30% and 50%.
Never go full strength with your nutrients if this is your first time. Try
30% for the first attempt and see how your plants do. You will be
surprised at how rich a bud content you will produce with this amount
of nutrients. The most common problem associated with hydroponics
is plant burns. I have rarely heard of someone under-feeding his or her
plants in a hydro system. I have heard plenty of reports about
overfeeding plants in hydro systems. Over time you will get to know
your strain and what it likes. The better you know your strain the
better you will be able to control your feeding amounts.
HARD WATER PROBLEMS
If you have scales in your bucket or what looks like kettle rust
then you have not been maintaining your pH level. Scale is caused by
very acidic pH levels. Your local water company will provide you with
a read out of your water. You can buy nutrient products to use with
hard water. If this problem persists just drain and clean your reservoir
and mix a new batch of nutrients to the correct pH level. Some use a
Reverse Osmosis water filtering system to clean their tap water.
Distilled water has a stable pH level of 7.0.
HOWTO KNOWWHEN TO ADD MORE NUTRIENTS
This is easy and not so easy. Beginners rely on a ppm meter,
but a veteran grower learns to read the plant. The plant will tell you if
is getting enough or too much or too little. It takes a few grows to learn
to read the plant but you can do it with experience. The plant may

they are tall. They all possess the unmistakable blue hue to the tops and a flavor and aroma that leaves me

and the seed-bank that you are going to use. The next step is too check
if the seeds are for indoor or outdoor use. There is a saying that all
cannabis seeds can be grown indoors and outdoor. This is true, but that
is not what the breeder had intended. If the breeder had created a plant
that does well indoors then it is suggested that you only grow these
seeds indoors. If you grow outdoors and the plant does not produce
that well, then you know that you should have followed the breeder’s
advice. Next time take that advice. There is nothing stopping you from
experimenting, and some growers have produced excellent results by
putting outdoor seeds indoors or putting indoor seeds outdoors, but it is
best if you follow the advice you are given, especially if you are new to
Figure 2.4 - Outdoor Sativa.
Figure 2.5 - Indoor Sativa.
Both of these pictures, figure 2.4 and 2.5, show a mostly
Sativa strain growing outdoors and indoors. As you can see this would
probably be labeled an outdoor strain because of its size. The grower,
mullummadman, has been able to grow it both ways though.
You may also find that a number of similar strains have been
produced by different breeders. When you look at the seed-bank list
you may see 1 - 4 types of the same plant. What is going on here you
ask? Well, let us take Skunk#1 for example. Skunk#1 is a mostly
Sativa plant but there are about 7 breeders who have provided a certain
seed-bank with these seeds. Each seed breeder tries to develop the best
plant possible for that strain type. You will find that some breeders are
good and others are not so good. Make sure that you check with the
seed-bank to see which breeder's strains are the best. Always choose
the best. The reason for choosing the best is that later you can
PRODUCE YOUR OWN SEED from that strain! Welcome to the

Search for Serious Seeds and Paradise Seeds on the internet. They are

The next thing to look for is flowering times. Each strain is a
bit different on flowering times. In a nutshell flowering is the next
cycle after your plant shows its sex. There are 3 main stages in plant
growth. Germination, Vegetative growth and Flowering. It is towards
the last days of flowering that you should begin your harvest. If the
seed-bank says, Skunk#1 Flowering time: 7-9 weeks then you should
be able to know roughly when your plant will be ready for harvest (in
this case it will 7 - 9 weeks from the time your plant starts to flower).
Some plants have shorter flowering times and others have
longer. This is a guide to help you understand how long it will take,
after vegetative growth is complete, before you will have a chance to
savior your plant’s delights. The last piece of advice is this. Always
consult someone about your strain type. Who knows, they may be able
to recommend something better.... Or maybe even have 13) they prepared racemic b,1_,

plant growth patterns in my experience with Misty. I got an even larger yield from this strain than from Chronic,
but only a very little bit larger. It did however have a sweeter taste and an even more powerful stone than the
