and the answer is why not? I used to think it was an an unnatural thing because your trading plants for chemicals but the question(nn) doesnt really preclude dabbing a few times becuase its fun and social. as for me Im closer to Jah when im a layer closer to the ground where i shall rest in his arms when i leave this babylon.
Exactly. He made the subject part of his routine. I got in trouble for making my current situation into a joke. Really pissed them off. Let them be pissed off. Before you ask what l have bipolar disorder.
Silly biggers this talk is for kids. The dab revolution is in it's earliest, most spermy stage right now. However amongst friends here I can confirm that the one egg in a billion, that is the ibach Dab Solution Experience has made it past the first stage of research and is in early testing.
I’ve recently seen a discussion that was inspired by a study into cannabis production ( pdf linked above ). One of the things the study investigated was the impact of flushing soil grown cannabis plants with nutrient free water two weeks prior to harvest to determine whether it had the intended effect of reducing nutrient concentrations in dried bud.
According to the study - “Flushing is currently standard common practice used by many cannabis producers. This involves irrigating the plants with nutrient free water for the last two weeks before harvest. The belief is that this method of irrigation will reduce the concentration of nutrients within the bud. This reduction is then believed to have impacts on the taste of the final product when consumed. Regardless of the anecdotal impacts on taste, there is little evidence that flushing the root zone during the final phase of production would result in a net export of nutrients from the maturing bud.”
So contrary to common practice the attached study suggests flushing has almost no impact on the amount of nutrients measured in the end product. The only benefit of flushing is that the grower can use water for the final two weeks with no effect on the final yield suggesting the only benefit to flushing is that the grower can save on nutrient cost during the final two weeks of the grow cycle. I’m sure we all know someone who’s ruined a crop from over feeding but the Cannabis for this study was grown in a lab by people who really know what they are doing.
Until I read this study I was under the impression that flushing a crop is essential and to not flush is almost a sin but is it all in the dry and cure? There’s no denying properly cured cannabis is a different beast to something that’s been flash dried and bagged within two weeks of harvest. Is drying in a controlled environment and a proper cure where the real magic happens and the real break down of nutrients occurs (if it happens at all)? Is flushing stoner science? Does anyone know what the deal is with food crops and are these flushed before being sold to consumers? Is it just cannabis farmers that flush crops?.
I would love to hear experiences and ideas around this, I think it’s a very interesting subject especially when presented with a study that goes against what is common practice.
I believe when growing with hydro you must flush the last two weeks, two pump out the nutrients, soil organically grown is different because all the nutrients are in the soil. So I believe with arable farming it’s the same context which is why shit is sprayed as opposed to anything else at guess. I do actually know an arable farmer, so I will ask out of interest.
Thanks for the reply, that’s very interesting especially regarding the hydro vs soil, I’m also really interested to know what the arable farmer has to say. Would also love to hear from some hydro growers and their methods, I know there are specific products like Canna flush that allow nutrients to be used during the later stages of flowering.
Yeah I will speak ask him, I’m seeing him this week, he is an ole boy and hasn’t farmed for the last the couple of decades so his advice will be from during his time of farming. But this is a great thread and would be great to read other people s views and info on things as it’s great to learn.
Knowing when the individual strain has is ready , making sure your water ph then flush 7 days as a rule. you can speed it by using some organic products but end of the day its patience .The most important thing after this curing the weed which a lot of people rush and after spending that much time growing is stupid
agreed... this is why comms with the community is so important. It helps give an idea of what you're all about and JJ is making me very interested in his product with his community comms. So he's now guaranteed to get me to at least buy a sample and give him a shot.
Im no expert...but ive grown soil and tested flushing and not with the same strain...there was a marked difference... in that the smoke was indeed smoother than the girl i didnt flush...having said this...the rougher smoke was still enjoyable in her own way...i should add..i used synthetic nutes...i've since moved to only organic and will repeat the test with this grow in 2 weeks
Let us know how the test goes, I’d love to hear. To be honest I have the same experience as you, I have only ever grown organically but I still felt there was a difference although that difference became smaller once both were properly cured.
100% agree with you on results after a decent cure...terps can (in my experience) differ sooo much...so many variables to consider...not just genetics and various phenos...but even where a particular plant was in a tent...my OCD is begining to show now :)
The OCD with plants is real, I understand totally! Haha. The crop I tested were clones from a very stable strain so it’s interesting you had the same result with different strains. But yeah, so many variables, it’s crazy. Apart from confusing people like me I guess the good thing with cannabis becoming more widely accepted is that we will get more controlled studies like this.
