Spring has finally sprung in our parts and we can’t be happier to see all the greenery around everywhere. With the sun shining and Canada’s birthday right around the corner, now is the perfect time to get some plants going… after all we are all allowed 4 recreational cannabis plants now. So, if you have been thinking about it, now is definitely the time.
First things first before you just jump right in, we recommend getting all the right tools before you start. You will probably have to take a trip to the good old “garden center” when you are ready to get started. In the meantime, come by and get some papers and maybe a new piece while you wait for your beauties to do their thing.
To get you started on the right foot and feeling confident, we recommend you pick up The Cannabis Grow Bible 3rd edition by Greg Green. This book contains over 700 pages, with all new photos and step-by-step guides to every aspect of marijuana horticulture, plant breeding, and hash production. Featuring a handy quick start guide at the beginning to allow growers to get started right away and hone their techniques as they read the later chapters in more detail. To sum it up it covers everything you need to know whether if you’re a novice or super experienced grower.
Once you got your ladies on the go, a couple of other tools to consider are the 420 Scope, Humidity Packs and Storage Containers. You can use things you got around your house that will do the trick, but these items will ensure you are harvesting at the right time and that nothing bad happens to all your hard work of growing and harvesting.
The 420 Scope is used to inspect your herb for quality and potency. Not to mention it’s just super cool to look at your nugs in 60-75x magnification. Looking at your trichomes is super important so you know when it’s just the right time to cut your plant down to hang.
RH Stayfresh Humidity packs and The Crypt Storage Containers really do go hand in hand. But if you prefer to use your own containers, they are perfectly good for that too. Rh Stayfresh Humidity packs have become the new standard for cannabis cultivators, growers and consumers. It addresses the need to keep product fresh, at the ideal humidity and prevent damage due to mold, excess moisture and moisture loss. Via osmosis, RH Stayfresh will either add or remove humidity to ensure peak freshness with zero risk of contamination and zero impact on taste, terpenes or cannabinoids.
The Crypt is a stainless-steel canister with removable modular carrousel inside to organize your cannabis and house an RH Stayfresh humidity pack. Whether your cannabis is wet, dry or in between, the Crypt with RH Stayfresh will regulate and maintain your product in perfect condition until you’re ready to use it. The Crypt makes it simple to keep an eye on internal conditions thanks to the integrated thermometer/hygrometer without having to open the lid. Available in multiple sizes, the Crypt is the ultimate storage and curing system.
Hopefully that was just the right amount of information … if it was too much maybe light one up and take it all in. We are always happy to chat with you in store about all of our products so don’t be shy and come in and ask some questions!
