    Estimating output/potency from QWET process?

    Any thoughts on how to estimate potency for QWET process? Is it as simple as weighing the final oil once dried? Or is there a good calculation/formula to work with? I've read a few things where people are getting 12 or 15% and I'm not sure how that's been measured and/or how to calculate. I'm...

    Trove of 1970's 'bag seed' ...this could be fun.

    Was back and forth texting with a cousin of mine...he's an old head from the height of the 70's...and he's been interested in what I've been growing. It's been fun sharing and discussing, and LOVE to get him on some stories of his exploits during that era; he is an inveterate music lover/concert...

    "Yellow Dragon" cold alcohol extraction...can you do multiple washes? If so how much?

    I'm a fan of the 'cold process' alcohol extraction/tincture method reduced down to FECO for some of my edibles. I've generally done whatever, ~7-14g at -4f, usually with about 4-6oz of 196 proof potable alcohol. Has anyone here done this and used their resultant 'golden dragon' to wash multiple...

    Vivosun now in the 'smart controller' ecosystem/game.

    I don't know if y'all saw this but looks like Vivosun is introducing an all-in-one WIFI controller not so different from the one that AC Infinity is releasing (Controller 69). I just got an email about it and while I'm pretty happy with the AC-I stuff and will remain with that, it was...

    Magnesium Deficiency or something else?

    Hey y'all, just looking to confirm or deny my instinct on this one. I think it's a magnesium issue, but I'd love some other opinions. I've done a bunch of auto runs , and didn't have anything like this, but these are Durban Poison photos. I'm only doing 2 right now, one shows no problems, this...

    I did a search and didn't find anything terribly current or comprehensive, so let's see what people think. Looking for a decent IR/laser thermometer for checking leaf surface temperature (and other grow related stuff). So grow and gear-head people, what do you like for an accurate, reliable...

    Easy Chocolate made with FECO

    Getting off my duff and doing a bit more 'making' this week. I have another crop of autos (Tangerine Dream x2 and Northern Lights x2) that will be harvested in the next week, so it's time to clear out some of the older stuff so I can keep going! In this case, I made two batches of alcohol...

    Thoughts on using unground flower for cannabutter?

    I've been playing around this fall and winter with cannabis infusion making, tinctures, etc. Eventually I'll get to more foodie stuff, but I've got plenty of jars of decent cannabis from my summer grow, and more on the way...so no worries about playing around in the research kitchen. Thought...

    Infused Honey, playing with different methods and recipes

    It's been a while since a thread on THC infused honey...so why not. I have some honey this year. Started out with 132lbs at the end of September to be exact. Half of it was 'early harvest' done in early July (think spring flowers, apple/pear blossom and larger tree/plant nectar & pollen), the...

    Anyone use molasses for iron/selenium?

    One of my little anklebiter autos has just expressed some yellowing in the upper leaves. Not terrible, but there. As far as I know that's micro-nutrient and probably iron/selenium. The plant doesn't need a flush (the rest of the leaves are happy and healthy, and I feed and water to decent...

    Estimating leaf surface temperature w/ LED quantum boards?

    Hey all, Just trying to further dial in my grow-tent-environment. I don't currently have a IR thermometer for leaf-surface temperature measurements...I do know that it differs according to types of light used. Makes sense, given the different IR output of different types of light. I'm currently...

    PPM best practices for Feeding Autoflowers in Soil?

    Over the past month or more I've been digging and re-digging for some solid & more definitive advice on feeding autos in soil. Lots of all-over-the-place info that goes from "feed 1/4th strength' of whatever chart you choose, to feed half; all the way to "feed full strength". Anyone provide...

    Hi All, Newish here, and new to growing...currently doing my first. Looking to bolster my lighting for my next grow. Currently 3rd week of flower for a handful of autos to get me off the ground.
