There is a hole in the coming of cannabis re-legalization.  That hole is home grows.  The four jurisdictions — two now legal and two about to go that way — already liberated allow home grows of six (6) plants, three (3) of which can be mature.  This raises a host of questions and challenges, not […]

[Originally one installment of a series titled "The Great Strains"]   White Widow appeared and won the Cannabis Cup in 1995. What did you do in 1995? Today the White Widow genes are everywhere, and they should be. White Widow started the “white” lines. How many “white whatevers” can you name? I count over 50 […]

The Step-parent role

When we are young we don’t consider all the extras of a relationship. As we get older though, we start to realize our partner comes with a family, a past, and more likely than not, some neurosis. This is a conversation that has come up a few times with different friends in the last few […]

HMJ Classics: The Great Strains — Haze

[Originally part of a series titled "The Great Strains"]   My Grandmother had a needlepoint in her kitchen. It read: “Haze — Once Tasted, Always Recognized.” Lots of strains claim Haze genetics, and they may be telling the truth. The Haze name is in common use.
