What's up GK! I have been reading some other posts in the forums and am stoked to join and start sharing/learning from this community. I just started my first grow to make medicine for my wife. She has a rare tumor that does not have a cure/treatment available. We found out about Rick Simpson Oil / concentrates and decided to give it a try... We flew out to Oregon and met with some friends who provided high grade bud and taught us how to make the tincture. We made it and brought it back home. We live in a prohibition state that does not have medical MJ laws... My wife took the medicine (a pound of flower concentrated into a liquid tincture) over a month and a half...that was interesting. AND IT WORKED!!!!!! Seriously. The last MRI showed that the tumor was stable and dying in some areas. So I am a believer. I'm all in and I will do whatever is necessary to keep her on that treatment. F to OR every few months to purchase and make more medicine is not affordable...so here I am, jumping into the deep end to grow the highest quality bud that I can for her needs. Cannabis has really gotten a bad rap. It is so much more than a "drug". It's not dangerous, its a plant with miraculous healing power. The gov't keeping it illegal is a crime in itself....but that's a whole other discussion. About my grow: I built a 6.5 x 9.5 grow room (weird dimensions but it's what I had to work with) for a perpetual grow. The plan is to have 3 stations: clone, veg, and flower. I have a 4x4 tent I could use for flower, but I would prefer to divide the room with panda film to make a larger flower area (4 x 5). I am using a 2' 4-bulb T5 for seedlings/clones, a 600W HID for Veg and a 1,000W for flower. I sprouted 8 seeds (3 white widow x big bud feminized and 5 critical mass (not feminized). They are on day 5 and are about 2 inches tall. I had some issues from the beginning that stunted them (I think)...the room was too hot (high 80's) and I was using water with a PH of 7.8 (smacks forehead). After fixing those issues, it's obvious that the plants are responding well. I'm learning a lot already from the posts on this site but I am sure I will be posting a lot of newbie questions. I can't wait until I can produce all of the medicine we need. Thanks for having me!
