by Alex Robles

If you’ve ever wanted to make canna-butter for edibles but you were unsure about how the dosage would work out.  This formula should help you figure out how much THC is going to wind up in those cookies.  I didn’t come up with this formula, but this is the one I use.

Cannabis Law by State

by Alex Robles

Ever since 1996 when California passed its Compassionate Use Act (proposition 215) Americas cannabis laws have slowly been changing.  As of today 29 states and Washington D.C. allow safe access to cannabis whether it’s medical or recreational.  While this number is encouraging I think it’s important that we get involved in the conversation if we want to change minds and stigmas about cannabis use.  We want to make sure we don’t give up patient access rights or growers rights while we rush to the “Shangri-La” that is legalized cannabis.  If we don’t want bureaucrats to be left alone to write cannabis laws and regulations then I urge everyone to be part of the dialogue.  If you can, show up to your local city council meeting about cannabis or just have an adult conversation with your adult friends about cannabis.  The goal is to move the conversation forward.  A good starting point is to know the law where you live.

A new day for recreational cannabis

by Alex Robles

Well my fellow cannabis enthusiasts, this is a new day.  20 years after medical cannabis was legalized in California, the great citizens of that state voted to legalize it for recreational use by anyone over the age of 21.  So as of Wednesday November 9, 2016 adults can legally consume cannabis for the fun of it. This matters to me because I live in the beautiful Golden State and I believe in the free and open access to cannabis by adults.   Continue reading

by Alex Robles

 Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds found in the resin that is produced by the cannabis flower.  They have been found to have therapeutic effects on a variety of symptoms associated with pain, nausea, and inflammation.  As of the day of this article was posted there have been over 100 cannabinoids identified in cannabis so far, depending on who you ask.  Some people will say more some will say less.  The two most notable today are THC and CBD, but more research is needed to find out what the other cannabinoids do and don’t do.

Growing marijuana is a process of finding your style.

by Alex Robles

As I’ve mentioned before, every cannabis grower has their own way of growing great quality marijuana.  There are lots of different techniques and schools of thought on the best and easiest ways to germinate, clone and even harvest.  Here at  “In My Grow” we’re no different, everyone here has their own style of growing and that’s great.  Just remember that not every piece of advice is going to work for everyone in every region.  All we’re trying to do is point the new marijuana grower in the right direction.     Everyone’s path to success isn’t the same.  The important thing is to find what works for you and see failure as learning experience, “what not to do next time”.  Don’t give up and know that we’re here for you.

That’s it, I’m getting off my soapbox now, enjoy your night.  Rocketboy9 is out.

Hard questions that every new cannabis grower needs to ask themselves.

by Alex Robles

Hello and Hola, I hope everyone’s Thursday went as planned.  I was taking a look around the space ( blog site ) last night when something came to mind.  Even though cannabis/marijuana is legal in 25 states, the District of Columbia and in around 40 countries worldwide, I  believe that there are still some hard questions that need to be answered by every new marijuana grower.
