HMJ Classics: “Blind Elders” Roll Call

Another installment from the "Blind Elders" series.   In a series called "Blind Elders," HMJ has been looking at all the times the truth about the cannabis plant was offered to, and refused by, those in power. Let's do a roll call:   1894, Indian Hemp Drugs Commission - "The Commission has come to the conclusion that the moderate use of hemp drugs is practically attended by no evil results at all." HMJ's story is HERE. 1925,...

GroSkool 2.0: Grow’em Big!

It seems reasonably certain that in our re-legalized future home growing will be allowed.  For reasons never entirely clear, a six-plant-three-in-flower garden is becoming the standard.  Nevada's proposition for a twelve-plant-garden would be much easier to manage.  But, okay, six plants means when I flower them my girls have to be BIG.  Look here: The premise of the home grow is to be able to feed your own head, along with all heads...

HMJ Classics: “Blind Elders” Keep Coming

Another installment in the "Blind Elders" series.  Enjoy.   In the 1970's the "war on drugs" was created in the mind of President Richard Nixon. This is the same President who continued the Vietnam war but created the Environmental Protection Agency and opened diplomatic relations with China. That odd mix in the man carried forward into the war on drugs which came to be despite of, and in the face of, all of these reports: 1970,...

GroSkool 2.0: A Look at Scrogging

Is "scrogging" really a word?  Our plant is putting on some size preparatory to going into flower.  It is at this point we may choose to incorporate the use of a "scrog" into the grow.  "Scrog" means "screen of green," named for the results the scrog produces.   Bear in mind that any and every idea we see in the videos can, probably will have to be, adapted to your unique, individual grow space. Sizes can scale up and down, but...

GroSkool 2.0: High Stress – Learning to Supercrop

Let's spend some more time exploring the high stress practice called "supercropping."   One more. Here's a number of the topics we have discussed being displayed in one video. How many of our topics can you count? If your legal 6-plant / 3 in flower grow is going to be sufficient you will "need" to supercrop your plants. One more thing to learn, and then, one more thing you understand. A good trade. That's all for this week. We...

HMJ Classics: Blind Elders 4 – Brits in South Africa

In our last episode the British Empire was in a dither as they could find no way to get more than 24 hours of work, per day, out of each of the people in India. The Empire reasoned that this was because these largely ungrateful at being occupied native peoples smoked cannabis, usually as charas, which is hashish. That troublesome cannabis plant was to plague the Brits in South Africa, too. This is the highpoint of the British Empire,...
