 Absolute Beginner growing Weed, but have 30+ yrs organically gardening roses, Ca natives & Mediterranean species. Purpose in growing Weed is medical. Goal is to control source of my DIY oils, tinctures, salves, lotions for physical pain management. I do not inhale; I hate smoking anything. Ergo taste and psychoactive effect is not most important. 


EMPHASIS OF MY GROW METHODS: Simulate Mother Nature's way of germinating and growing plants by sowing and germinating seed directly into prepared soil in final big pot to avoid any disturbance of roots and transplant shock. Am using those black. bumpy looking rigid sided air pruning pots in  5, 10, and 12.5 gallons (US) sizes. Because I live in hot summer climate (Sunset Zone 16-17, USDA Zone 9a-9b), to minimize heat stress to roots, I will use white spray paint for plastic to paint the outside surfaces of these black pots to deflect heat of sunshine. i also have a fabric root pruner 25 gallon pot for experimenting with Jack Herer strain to see how big it will grow.


Please comment with criticisms, advice, suggestions, reference sources, etc. to help me make this learning experience fun as well as resulting in healthy, happy plants. Thank you.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
