Tropical Cannabis
    #971804 - 10/18/02 09:34 AM (14 years, 9 days ago)

Hey everybody,

First off I'd like to say that this is a slow forum. It is too bad, because the the use of entheogens that you have grown yourself is a great thing. Not only does it make you independent from the dealers or whatever other source, but it also gives you a new appreciation for plant life. Not to mention the fact that when you grow something yourself you know exactly where it came from and under what conditions it grew.

That said I was wondering if anyone has any knwledge or experience about growing Cannabis in the tropics. I have found that the great majority of Cannabis grown in tropical Latin America is low-grade, shwaggy, brownish, seedy etc.

Why is this? I have been told that in the tropics you can not grow potent forms of Cannabis because the photo-period is to short. So in general you can not grow good outdoor in the tropics.

So, I wondered what is the deal? in Thailand they have supposedly potent Thai sticks and in Hawaii they have potent bud like Maui Wowy. These are both tropical zones how is it that they have potent buds?

If anyone can suggest a Cannabis cultivation page that would be great

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

---Still Searching---

You can most certainly grow potent weed in the topics. The reason that mexican schwag is so brown and seedy is a result of how they grow, package, and transport it. They don't bother to take the male plants out of the field, that's why it is so seedy. Check out www.overgrow.com for lots of good information on how to grow your own. They have some pretty cool forums.

Yeah, I used to live on the big island of Hawaii, and boy the "Puna" bud was the greatest :smile: It was grown in Puna, which is on the South side of the island, in a giant rainforest that lines the outskirts of the volcano.

The bud from latin america degrades heavily in its transportation. Ive heard of people using seeds from mexican brickweed and getting very nice plants.

They package that shit like mad, its a big industry down there... they dont have to worry about quality.. they can still ship that shit to dry places up here.

you are right, this forum is running very slowly in the last times... about the weed they're right, if the weed there is not good and seedy it is because they don't pick the males and because of handling/shipping...
if you wanna see that for yourself just save the seeds of your schwag and plant them - it is unbelievable how weed loses quality the bigger the plantations are and the more handling it suffers. you can grow outdoors with no problems...
