Real news, apparently.

The stuff being already in some ferts in disturbing. That sounds like a good way to cheat. "Yeah, look how bushy these sativas got when I used this stuff...awesome..."

i used to buy weed from a dude who did "greenhouse organic" a real hippie type and my weed always looked like the weed on the right. When i went over to my friends house he had some of the stuff on the left and all he did throughout the whole high was talk about how good the weed i used to get was, even though his weed was good.

i had no idea it had to do with this PGR thing, but there you go!

You can order plant "steroids" from asia
So you can be sure some growers use it.

You can have thick nugs without PGRs.

Oh shit, I'm glad all the weed I buy looks like the right one.

The picture part at least is bullshit, the left is simply a chuck of vacuum packaged/pressed weed. The right is simply part of a nug that happens to be from a strain that produces fluffy buds.

Also let me speak out against using any "specialized" fertilizer for growing cannabis. These are, without exceptions common mixtures just marketed to the weed market for a bigger markup. In reality there is nothing special about them, besides the label, the ads and the price.
Ingredients wise any common fertilizer made for general agriculture will be as good or better than any "Super Dank Power Boost Juice" or something.
And people who don't know you need nitrogen during growth and potassium during flowering shouldn't be growing.

This...holy fuck is the growshop industry filled with bullshit.
Basically, if you can supply the right conditions, and literally enough NPK at the right times, the plant gives a fuck.

I will say this - soils seem to be the one place where you don't get fucked hard. All the soils I see at grow stores are pretty damn good. I got some Michigan Mix, that is just worth every expensive penny. They will cost, but good soil can only be made by time and care. So, it will always cost.

close, the one on the left was tumble trimmed.

the cost of hand trimming is usually about 5-10% for the wholesale price of the pound. if you're going to do it yourself, 2 pounds will take you all day to trim

I wonder if tumble trimming sheds a lot of trichs though....

Personally, I like the zen of hand trimming and collecting scissors hash, etc. Trim parties can be fun if you have a bunch that you want to process from a home grow.

I can see why tumble trimmers are used though. Fast and cheap over the long haul....

>I wonder if tumble trimming sheds a lot of trichs though

I'm sure some precious trichs get harmed in the process, but it's no big deal. People who have to pay absurd prices for an ounce or two of weed might be concerned about "conserving the trichs", but people who grow and harvest pounds of weed every month don't care so much about that. Their equipment is probably coated with sticky plant matter. They just want to crank their product out in the most efficient way possible.

Good to know.

You hear all sorts of things from people. Some will just about wrap their bud in bubble wrap.

Those just look like 2 different strains the one on the left looks like a heavy indica and the one on the right looks like a mostly Sativa hybrid. The buds with the lightest shades of ash are the cleanest ones tho. Medical bud quality has just gone down over the years because they mass produce for quantity rather than quality so they don't flush their plants or really give them any special care that an experienced talented home grower would. I remember the medical bud quality from 10 years ago was a lot more consistent and the buds would burn a lot cleaner because they're suppliers were oldschool homegrowers with a lot of knowledge. Now it's just who can supply me with the most buds for the cheapest price so i could push them out as fast as possible.

The dude who made this test bought one weed at a shop and the one thats has better structure was grown by him. He claimed thats what synthetic PGRs do, yet those are 2 different buds from 2 different plants from 2 different grows, different everything. To truely do this test one would have to grow with useing a control, no sythetic or organic pgr, one with synthetic pgr and one with organic pgr

I heard that one was trimmed in a machine, and one by hand.
Regardless, it is apples and ummm...another type of apple grown somewhere else.

Imagine a big red apple. Now imagine a smaller green apple.

Which one is "better?" Well, if you like green apples, the green one is. If you like red, the red one. Both are different and were grown differently for different markets. Same shit. There is no "ZOMG! WE IS GONNA DIES!" here.

In fact, there may be not be much here at all. This article from 2012, explains the problem. There were a handful of nute makers marketing to the weed community who were spiking their formulas with PGRs. They weren't divulging this or anything.


http://marijuanagrowershq.com/plant-growth-regulators-poison-marijuana/

Now, that is 5 years ago. I have yet to hear of any dead people.

The problem is, nobody knows...at all...what these things do in weed. In fact, they aren't sure what the impact on people is at all. Much less for SMOKING the shit. Remember, all the research went into oral doses. Do these chemicals even manage to survive the high temps we use to smoke weed with? Do the lungs just dissolve them? Inhalation is not ingestion.

So...since nobody has seen a mass die off of stoners...I would be that it is at worst, MODERATELY safe. Meaning, it may, if it does anything at all, increase your cancer risk by a small percentage. Which, just about everything does. Seriously...everything causes cancer and it is NEVER lupus.

The whole point is that these two buds obviously did undergo different treatment, which you did miss.

What I'm basically understanding from this is that growing your own is always the best option. That way you always know exactly what goes into it.
