For patients who need the energetic, functional qualities of a sativa strain, Durban Poison can provide all of that and a whole lot more. The sweet tang emitted from the frosted dark green flowers is in a category all to itself.
In all seasons, the Northwest is an ideal place to get outside and enjoy Mother Nature’s bounty. Whether it’s hiking up a river trail to gain access to your favorite secluded swimming hole in the summer, or skiing/boarding the slopes of our mountains in the winter. Camping out with friends and family for the weekend or your own personal time just getting out there, Durban is one of the single best medications to do it with.
Three months can be a long time to wait for someone who is very anxious to harvest his crop. And for marijuana plant growers, it is best to contain one’s excitement so as not to harm the remaining baby buds along the process. Trimming them can be a challenge unless you have a good pair of shears. Better prepare two of these tools in case one of them breaks. Asking a friend to help with the harvest will make it not just a less stressful event but makes it fun at the same time.
GWE’s 2017 Cannabis Seed Bank Review – Where To Buy Marijuana Seeds Online
We have maintained this list since 2010 with reviews of the marijuana seed sources that we use at GrowWeedEasy.com. These seed banks take online orders and ship cannabis seeds worldwide (including the USA!). We only recommend companies with outstanding stealth, reliability, customer service, and seed quality. This certainly isn’t a list of all good seed banks, but these are the seed banks we know and use ourselves.
Cannabis buds can come in all shapes and sizes! Although variety is the spice of life, it can make it a little confusing to know when to harvest your buds based on how your plants look. But if you harvest when buds are ready you’ll get the best yields and potency, so it’s a good idea to try to harvest as the right time if you can!
When buds first appear on your plant they look like little round puffs of hair. Each bud is made up of many white hairs (“pistils”) that stick straight out.
Baby buds (budlets) look like a ball of white hairs. These buds have many weeks to go!
Still Not Ready
As the plant buds get closer to harvest, they thicken and those white pistils start to darken and curl in. You’ll notice your buds are slowly getting thicker and more dense. However if you still have a lot of straight white pistils, like this bud, you know you still have a few weeks to go.
Ready to Harvest
You’re in the harvest window when most of the pistils have darkened and curled in. This bud is now ready to harvest!
Start with Top-Shelf Genetics – get the effects and appearance you want! Your grow skill makes a huge difference, but a plant can’t overcome its genes! If you want buds that are potent, dense, sparkly or purple/pink, you need the right genetics.
Manipulate Temperature & Humidity in the flowering stage to increase resin production (“glitter” and stickiness), bring out colors like pink or purple & prevent smells from burning away
Great Air Flow Around Every Cola – you can gain surprising increases in the size and density of your buds by making sure that every cola gets lots of direct light and good air flow from the beginning to the end of the flowering stage. Cannabis is wind-pollinated in the wild and so more energy is put into buds that have been exposed to a breeze from when they first started forming.
Master the Basics of Growing – especially harvesting, trimming and drying/curing! Although a lot of growers don’t pay as much attention to what happens to plants after harvest as during the grow itself, these 3 post-harvest factors determine almost 50% of your final bud appearance. Properly drying/curing also intensifies smell and increases bud potency!
In order to ensure the best quality for your freshly harvested buds, you must prepare your buds with a process known as curing, which involves drying your buds slowly in a controlled environment, then keeping buds in glass jars over the course of a few weeks to let certain natural plant processes occur.
Growers cure marijuana buds because they will not achieve their peak potency and quality if they’re uncured. If you started with great genetics and you’ve taken care of your marijuana plants properly during their life, then curing is what makes the difference between “just okay” and trophy-worthy buds.
