One Year of Legal Recreational Cannabis: Where the Cannabis Industry Stands

Posted by Celia Daly on Dec 30, 2014 7:37:42 PM

In Colorado this week, the first year of legally sanctioned cannabis sales since Prohibition began comes to a close. Of course, cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, but there is a vibrant market here in Colorado—and, in many ways, what makes this past year so notable is its lack of notoriety. For Coloradans who don't participate in the cannabis market, life is not significantly different now than it was one or even five years ago. For those who do sell or consume, life tends to be a little bit better.

Check Every Plant, Every Day

Posted by Celia Daly on Dec 22, 2014 7:29:35 AM

As the holiday season kicks into high gear, we’d like to remind all of the growers out there to keep a mindful eye on your plants as personnel availability waivers to accommodate vacation schedules. Depending on the grow medium being used, plants can become stressed in a matter of hours if mistakes are made in the feeding schedule or if the electrical breaker controlling lighting or other vital equipment is tripped. This stressing can have dire consequences when growing for a large scale production facility, including: stunted and/or delayed plant growth, disease/pest infestation, and killing the plants entirely.

Culling the Cannabis Garden

Posted by Celia Daly on Dec 11, 2014 7:54:22 AM

This concept is going to sound backwards to many of you, but our years of cannabis growing experience have shown that the best way to produce the highest quality product is to cull plants at each stage of growth.  Professional gardeners know this rule well, but most cannabis growers do not. In fact, it seems backwards to many cannabis gardeners to throw out plants as they are transitioned through the different stages of the plants life-cycle (i.e. clone/seedling, vegetative, flowering) as they have put effort in keeping these plants alive and as healthy as possible. However, culling plants at each stage will produce a more robust and higher yielding crop through the selection of the strongest individuals and the discarding of weak plants.

Cannabis: The Big Winner of 2014 Elections

Posted by Celia Daly on Nov 5, 2014 10:34:46 PM

Republican victories across the nation may dominate the headlines, but the biggest winner of the 2014 midterm elections is cannabis. Oregon and Alaska, the two states considering recreational legalization measures, both voted to end prohibition, as did our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. While voters in Florida clearly support medical marijuana (with 57.6% voting yes), patients there will have to continue to wait as Florida requires a 60% majority to pass a ballot initiative.
