Cannabis

Going to do a dry trim on the one that grew in the tent. It's stalk was thicker than it's companion in the shower but shows less brown trichromes. Sticky bastard. I've read that dry trimming may result in greater potency at the cost of greater difficulty trimming away the sugar leaves after they curl into the bud. Never know until you know so what the hell, I'll try it on this one. Left the fans on and unplugged the lights. I feel kind of bad lopping it and hanging it like a deer to bleed out. C'est la vie

Got 16 grams from each. Wet trimmed one, dry trimmed the other. Has to cure about a week.

The fan and sugar leaves are so sticky and pungent I think next time around I’ll figure out how use it to make silly butter. Not a fan of edibles but it seems a waste. Next time is December as I started two more seeds. 1662831656493.jpeg

OK, the results are in and wet trimming is the winner. White Widow is very smooth with a taste that's hard to quantify, but pleasant enough. Seems like the stuff that got dry trimmed has slightly less potency. So in December I'll wet trim the next batch and see about making some butter from the leaves.

I don't toke myself, but I find cannabis cultivation quite fascinating. Mebbe when it's fully legalized my state can be a leader in the industry as we have been with bourbon and tobacco. I've already got the land, just waiting for the regulatory climate to catch up.

I agree with the central thrust of Biden's decision, but feel it is somewhat belated.

Biden urged governors to follow suit regarding state marijuana offenses and instructed Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra and Attorney General Merrick Garland to begin reviewing how marijuana is classified under federal drug laws.

"The federal government currently classifies marijuana as a "schedule one" substance, the same as heroin and LSD – and more serious than fentanyl," said Biden. "It makes no sense."

Biden aside, why hasn't Congress done anything about this already? There seems to be schizophrenia in the government regarding marijuana.

They are doing this in an attempt to gain votes, why else make this call a month before elections, the liberals are tanking at the polls and they know it...

Also. I believe that hardly any federal marijuana convictions are for "simple possession."

Also gasoline is about to jump 50 to 80 cents a gallon if not more in a very short time, the cost of food continues to increase. I wouldn't be surprised if they start promising checks in the mail to get more votes...

It’s a Schedule 1 drug. It should be removed from that list. If ‘simple posession’ is all someone is guilty of then yeah, let them go. But it’s never that simple.

Actually the cultivation of small amounts of really good stuff for personal use is ridiculously simple, as I’ve shown in this thread. It’s just a nice buzz. But beyond that, I dunno. Production in quantity right now is maybe like moonshine. Again, one of those things that generally I have no qualms about but depends on circumstances. One thing I am positive of is that those things shouldn’t be lumped in with heroin etc
