Is It Better To Grow Marijuana Hydroponically Or In Soil?

There is no way to know who was the first person to grow marijuana hydroponically. That’s not to say that there aren’t a lot of people out there that claim that they were the first, or know who did it first, but there’s no definitive proof. And let’s be real, it’s not easy to separate fact from fiction when it comes to marijuana cultivation and claims made by people. I do think it’s safe to assume though that from the very beginning of hydroponic marijuana cultivation, there was likely a debate as to which was better, hydroponics or soil. That

Is It Bad To Touch Marijuana Seeds With Your Bare Fingers?

Will It Harm Cannabis Seeds If You Touch Them With Your Fingers? I have found marijuana seeds in my marijuana on many occasions. I am sad to admit that for a very long time in the 1990’s I smoked brick weed that always had seeds in it. I always remember spending long amounts of time de-seeding the bammer, and would look at the pile of schwag left over after the seeds were out of it and thinking about how crappy my dealer was. I also remember back in the day when I would get the rare chronic, and would find

What Are The Best LED Grow Lights For Growing Cannabis?

For a long time LED grow lights that were on the market for growing cannabis left a lot to be desired. They were very expensive, and weren’t very well designed.

Nutrient Burn And Marijuana Plants

Contrary to what many new growers may think, giving your marijuana plants an enormous dose of nutrients is not going to help them be healthier. In fact, giving them too many nutrients will actually harm them, causing something called “nutrient burn,” or shortened among marijuana growers as “nute burn.” If your plants are suffering from a nutrient burn, they will likely exhibit signs of yellowing and burnt tips on the leaves. The leaves may become crunchy and crispy and their edges will begin to curl. Depending on the type of nutrient that is causing the burn, the leaves may also have
