"The trick is to not allow too much upward growth- on node 7 or 8, pinch out. Take the bottom 2 branches of.
You should be left with about 6 branches which will rapidly bush out to form a 'goblet' shape. These branches
will, in turn, produce branches growing into centre of plant. These secondary branches should be cut back to
about 3 or 4 nodes on the same day that flowering is started. Durban starts to flower very rapidly- you should
see signs within a week. After about 10- 14 days, pinch main branch-tips of. These will have shot upwards to
form a crown that will now fill out into colas. Final plant should be just over 2 foot from seed or 1.5 foot from
cutting. High is totally unbelievable- its like the first time you got stoned, but better- its clean, spacey,

"Mel Frank says that he knows the breeder in California that developed Durban Poison, and that it came from
2 females out of 16 grown from 1 variety out of six that came from South Africa. Only those two plants were
worth a damn. What he doesn't say is that there must have been some other plants in the mix; a male, eh?
He notes that genetics among growers in SA were already all jumbled up from the sources they had to draw
on, so the claims that Durban is a pure sativa have to be taken with a grain of salt." - SCW
"I'm trying some Durban from Aloha out right now in SOG. I've harvested a small test clone from the female
and it was good quality so I have a little sea of her going now.. 4 per foot in organics, mostly castings. She
stretched more than I wanted or expected under the 1K Agrosun MH, I was aiming for 2 foot high at finish but
will probably hit 2.5. You can train and prune and tie her all over but it won't change the node spacing which
makes for the lankiness. Budding them around 6 to 8 inches, or 5 days of veg is about where I'd do it next
time. The yield should be good, not great.. it won't be huge like a good indica, but weight has more to do
with flowering times and amount of resin (how many cycles per year can you get, and resin weighs alot). I
have no idea if these plants are even distant relatives of the seeds you might get." - ~shabang~
"I messed around with Durban in a 24" sog setup, and it just wouldn't work, but I did have one plant that
stayed fairly short, so I cloned it for a mother and put it aside for some months. Recently I switched to scrog,
and thought of the Durban, so I cloned it up and ran 5 of them under the screen in a 2 x 2' space with a 220
HPS conversion bulb. The Durban wanted to run a bit, but that was OK with the screen method. What I have
now is a number of 4-8" flower spikes about the size of large cigars, and there has been no vertical stretching
for a couple of weeks. I think it will mature nicely, which is good, as Durban is our #1 favorite day smoke. A

dish (you should be able to buy these at the same time you buy your
pots). When you water your plant some of the water may drain down
through the soil and come out through the perforations and into the
dish. The dish should be emptied if this happens to avoid water spills.
More advanced growers use pots that do not contain
perforations at the bottom. This is because advanced growers never
water or feed their plants too much. If you over-water your plant, these
perforated pots will drain some of the water through to the dish. What
happens is that the water may also leech down some of the nutrients
that you have added to your soil. Over-watering can cost you time,
wasted nutrients and even kill your plant.
Before you use a pot make sure that you clean it thoroughly
before use to get rid of any unwanted chemicals or dust that may have
gathered in the shop or factory.
Pots are very cheap to buy. It is always best that you only use
one pot per plant. If there is a problem with the soil, watering or
nutrients then only one plant will feel the effects.

Figure 5.24 - This is a great picture of a method known as doublepotting
which helps create a thicker stem. During vegetative growth
the bottom of the top pot is cut away and is placed on top of a new pot
with fresh soil. The roots grow down into the next pot. Look at the size

CONTINUING YOUR INDOOR SOIL GROWING
So at this stage you now have the best soil that you can get
your hands on. You take the seedling and make the transplant. You fill
in the empty areas of the new pot with more soil. You pat down the top
of soil lightly and you apply the stake if needed to support your plant.
You also add a small amount of water to your pot and you place the
pot on the bench under the light. You will leave the light on 24 hours a
day and watch as your plant grows over the weeks from its seedling
cycle to its vegetative state.

INDOOR VEGETATIVE GROWTH
During your plants vegetative cycle it will begin to grow
quickly and produce more leaves and new branches. The stem will also
grow thicker. This is when your plant begins to look like a marijuana
Water your plant ever second or third day or better still when
they dry out. Never let the soil dry out completely for long periods of
time. The following method works best with good size pots.
Day A - watering, Day B - let dry, Day C - let dry, Day D - check soil
and water if needed.
This really does depend on the size of your pots though. If you
pick up your pot when it is dry and pick up the same pot when it is has
been watered, you can tell the difference in weight. This is a Treatment of the pyrone with

effects of the drug on himself, we tap only the subjective vein, a valuable but fragmentary
source. This information should properly complement clinical findings, not contradict
them. Thus, since we have asked for the effect of the drug on the person taking it, we have
largely sidestepped the objective-subjective dilemma which is so often a source of
confusion. We do not ask the smoker to be a scientist, reporting objectively on drug
effects, but to re-create the drug experience itself, to convey the expressive character of
the marijuana high.
One-third of the responses to the open-ended question reported that their senses were
more receptive, more sensitive. We straddle two realms here. Tests can be constructed to
measure the ability of the subject to discern stimuli. But for the subjective impact of sensestimulation,
we have to abandon the laboratory approach, because it does not tell us
anything; we must ask the subject himself. Most responses have this dual character. And
the subjective meaning of phenomena and sense-impressions forms a vast and uncharted
territory, with a logic and integrity of its own—yet one of immense significance.
Why should music be so often singled out as a locus wherein marijuana is said to have
such a pronounced impact? There are, after all, five senses, thousands of sources of sound,
an infinitude of possible changes in thinking, doing things, feeling; why music? There are
at least three explanations:
1. The physiological and psychological explanation. There actually is something
about the effects of marijuana that relates specifically to music, to rhythm,
movement, sound, and pitch.
2. The culture explanation. Marijuana smokers happen to be people who enjoy music
and merely project onto marijuana, which they also enjoy, the positive effects of
any activity toward which they feel positively.
3. The logistical and ecological explanation. It just happens that, given the personnel
and the setting ( in one's living room for the most part ), it is highly likely that
music is one of the activities in which marijuana users will be engaged while high.
There is no doubt that reasons (2) and (3) operate powerfully; the question is, do they
account for all of the variance? Is there any pharmacological thrust at all?
A quarter of a century ago, an objective test of musical talent was done on incarcerated
individuals, experienced with marijuana's effects, who had been administered parahexyl, a
marijuana-like compound.16 The study found that the drug did not increase musical
ability. The typical test result (except for rhythm) was to improve very slightly without the
drug as a practice effect, and then to drop back to the original, pre-practice leve , 62, 2197
attitudinal shifts generally take place relative to drug use and drug-associated identities.
The more that one smokes, the greater the likelihood that he will see himself as a
marijuana smoker and the higher that drug-connected identities will rank on his "who am
I?" responses. The more that one will look for drug cues in others, the more he will think
of others in drug-associated terms; also the more one will think it necessary that others
with whom he associates smoke. The more that one smokes, the greater the salience that
marijuana has in his life. (The evidence for this assertion is presented in Table 8-3.)
Salience of Marijuana by Amount of Use
Percent saying "yes" to the following questions:
"When you meet a person for the first time, is the fact that he smokes marijuana one of
half-dozen things you think about?"
"Is it preferable that your friends smoke marijuana, or not?"
"Do you think that you would turn on your younger brother or sister, if you had one?"
Daily 81 56 88
3 to 6 times per week 69 53 73
1 or 2 times per week 45 37 65
1 to 4 times monthly 39 33 57
Less than monthly 16 31 41
It is impossible at this point to draw causal arrows. We must rather, think of the
relationship between our variables in dialectical terms. One variable, the amount of
marijuana smoked, influences a person's conception of himself as a smoker which, in turn,
also influences how much he smokes. The simple cause and effect model is inadequate
here. All of the factors form a kind of configuration. The amount a person smokes is
easily quantifiable, but it is itself a partial consequence of other factors. To attempt to
separate a strand does violence to the whole.
Moreover, the more an individual smokes marijuana, the greater is the likelihood that
he will also be involved in drug-related activities which further strengthen his social ties
to the drug-using group. For instance, the more he smokes, the greater the chances of his
having bought and/or sold marijuana. The more he smokes, the greater the need to
purchase marijuana; the more he smokes, the greater is the chance of being able to take

advantage of the economy in large purchases, and the greater the likelihood of having a
surplus to sell; the more he smokes, the more he associates with others who smoke,
especially heavily, and thus the more centrally located he is in the marijuana distribution
system, and the more knowledge he has about buying and selling.
But the arrows move in both directions. The more he buys and sells, the greater the
number and the intensity of his personal acquaintances in the marijuana network, and the
more reinforced will be his marijuana-related activities, including smoking; the more that
he buys and sells, the more marijuana there will be around— the greate

"“Jack Flash does go a bit long in the flowering, it grows in two types one very Sat/Haze influenced, tall 5'-6' with
huge ""Heads on Sticks"" that dried at over 1 oz. each! there were 5 of them on one lady in a 5 gal pot, she
took about 76 days, but was worth every day. The other type grows very Indica-like, there was one special lady
like this type, that was very fruity with a nice trippy high that gave way to a indica high after the first hour and
the indica-dom. takes about 60 days to flower, also very well worth the wait, several connoisseurs said that it
was amongst the best Indica they had ever smoked, and the taste cured is fantastic. And the strain is very
easy to take care of. It was really nice, and it yields great in both forms. Out of 7-8 different strains grown

she grew out in a ""heads on stick"" fashion, big huge heads, she was toped once at the 6 node, she grew into 6
big heads, each dried to 20-35 grams she yielded just over 5 oz's, of great tasting wake and bake, uplifting
sativa smoke. Another lady was sort of the runt, she was in a 3 gal pot also pinched at the 6th node, she had
more of a indica phenotype, nice tight colas with red pistils, great smoke very fruity, but yield was bad, at
about 20 grams. The 3rd lady was awesome, also in a 3 gal pot, pinched at the 6th node, she grew the
densest nugs, smelled like lemon, tasted like lemon/hash, and the high was awesome, trippy and thought
provoking, but its best attribute was its wonderful taste, she yielded about 1.5 oz. All said I really like this

Also try to find the source of the light leak and patch it up. Using a
thick black garbage bag works well to keep the light out.
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
have drunk all the nutrients 3 4 reported (Chart 2

Chapter 4. One Hundred and Fifty Experienced Marijuana Users
APPROXlMATELY 750 QUESTIONNAIRES were sent out. Of those returned by the cutoff date several months
later, three were rejected because of high scores on the validity scale, as explained earlier, and several others were
rejected because the respondent indicated that he had been intoxicated with marijuana while he was filling out the
questionnaire. A number of partially completed questionnaires were also returned with notes that they were just
too long for the user to complete. Verbal comments by students around campus also indicated that the primary
reason they had not completed the questionnaire was its length. One hundred and fifty usable questionnaires were
left. Thus the 150 respondent users are a verbal lot, sufficiently motivated to help science that they would fill out a
As the data below will indicate, this is primarily a young, student population. How representative it is of any
other specific population is unknown.1 As the primary purpose of the present study was to discover the major
experiential effects of marijuana intoxication, to study the effects of some important background variables, and to
specify the range of phenomena, rather than produce exact figures for a specified population, this lack of
knowledge about the generality of the present sample is not a serious drawback. Again, however, the reader should
be cautioned against overgeneralizing the exact figures presented later.
Some further comments should be made about generalization of the effects in this study to other populations. In
terms of the model for drug intoxication effects presented earlier, it is clear that the intellectual level, social
learnings and expectations, and values of a given population may strongly affect what they will experienc Since 16716
