Grow of the Month
The herbal Cure
Section 1: Nuts and Bolts
During the Vegetative cycle we use T5s, then switch to 400-watt MetalHalide before flowering. We use 1000-watt dimmable HPS lights in flower to ensure there is no shock to plants coming out of Veg. Next to genetics, the environment is the most important factor in growing the best cannabis for patients. We have our cooling and exhaust isolated in each room and use CO2 through Veg & Bloom. We control our environment through an automated system that keeps temperatures & humidity at ideal levels 24 hours day. It’s hard to argue with Mother Nature. After some trial and error with hydro and aeroponics, we really believe in sticking to the basics. We grow in soil and use as many organic nutrients as possible. We have one large grow room dedicated to organics, but do use nutrients on some of our strains to maximize genetic potential. We always flush for 3-4 weeks and strive to provide the cleanest medicine in Colorado. We have lots of plants in rotation and harvest every 3-4 weeks. Our yields are consistently over 1 pound/light.
In The Room With:
I’m sure our style is similar to some of the best growers in Colorado, but I don’t think anyone cares about their patients, and therefore the quality of the cannabis we provide, more than us at The Herbal Cure. We will never sacrifice quality for quantity. Extra care and attention is given to our plants every step of the way. Everyone in the grow has the same attitude about quality and does an amazing job. We prefer the 1-hit-quit cannabis. We care about quality above all else. We feel that the smell, taste, and appearance of cannabis is of utmost importance and significantly affects the end goal of providing the most potent medication available. If you start with the best genetics, add a lot of TLC during the growth phase, then put just as much effort into trimming and curing, you will end up with cannabis that looks incredible, smells awesome, & tastes amazing. Those characteristics also add to the overall potency of each strain. If it looks like crap, smells like crap, & tastes like crap…well you know what they say. We wouldn’t want our patients wasting their money on inferior medication. ---------------------Pick up their strains at: The Herbal Cure 985 S.

Section 2 – Proprietary/Uniqueness
We have over 40 different mothers. There are several proprietary strains including Bubblegod, Pimpslap Poison OG, The Dope, Strawberry Diesel, OG Bubba, Sour Chem, Grape Stomper, Tangerine Dream, Chemo OG, and many more to come. We also take pride in our classic high-grade strains such as Sour Diesel, Flo, Banana Kush, Golden Goat, Super Lemon Haze, Bubblegum, Island Sweet Skunk, Chemdawg, Bubba Kush, Raskal’s OG, and Durban Poison. The Herbal Cure will continue to be at the forefront of developing new genetics. By the end of 2012, we hope to be known for offering our patients the best genetics and best-grown cannabis in the entire industry. That attitude is represented in our center as well with superior knowledge and attention provided to our patients.

Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett wrote Walsh a letter calling for the federal government to back off from targeting dispensaries that comply with the state medical marijuana law passed by voters in 2000. “I can see no legitimate basis in this judicial district to focus the resources of the United States government on the medical marijuana dispensaries that are otherwise compliant with Colorado law or local regulation,” Garnett wrote. See the full correspondence at KushMagazine.com
Legislators in Colorado face a bill that would establish the nation’s first “responsible medical marijuana vendor” designation, giving cannabis business the option to train employees in a state-approved program. The state Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division already requires cannabis workers to undergo background checks. Employees must wear state-issued badges and be under video surveillance at all times they are handling cannabis seeds, plants or products. The proposed “responsible vendor” designation would go to businesses whose employees have had additional training in such issues as identifying legal medical marijuana cards. Brian Vicente, head of Sensible Colorado, said, “It’s really an attempt by the industry to further establish clear regulation and responsibility.” Democratic state Sen. Lois Tochtrop, who sponsored the bill, said the additional training could give cannabis workers “more clarity,” and gives the public “more confidence in the industry.” Robert Hoban, head of the state Cannabis Business Alliance, called the designation “the next logical step” in medical marijuana regulation. Colorado voters will meanwhile face a November initiative to legalize personal possession of cannabis in the state, as the “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act” was approved for the ballot. State authorities certified that campaigners had achieved the needed number of signatures on Feb. 27. “This could be a watershed year in the decades-long struggle to end marijuana prohibition in this country,” Art Way, Colorado director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said in a statement.
Five bills have been introduced this year in Sacramento concerning cannabis and medical marijuana, winning varying degrees of support from activists and the cannabis industry. Most likely to pass is San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano’s Assembly Bill 2312, which would regulate medical marijuana at the state level instead of letting each city and county take differing approaches to interpreting the law. AB 2312 would create a Board of Medical Marijuana Enforcement within the state Department of Consumer Affairs to approve or deny permits for growing, processing, testing, transporting, distributing and selling medical cannabis. Less popular with advocates is Assembly Bill 2365, which would require all medical marijuana patients to get a state identification card and register the address where they are cultivating cannabis. AB 2365 would also amend the state code to require that family courts consider a parent’s documented use of prescribed drugs—including medical marijuana (although it is not technically “prescribed”)—in child-custody proceedings. Senate Bill 1506 would make the crime of possessing concentrated cannabis resin—that is, hashish—a misdemeanor. Currently, hashish possession can either be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony. A felony hash possession conviction can land a sentence of 16 months to three years in prison.
MULTIPLE CANNAbIS bILLS PENdINg IN SACRAMENTO
Colorado’s top federal prosecutor ordered 25 medical marijuana dispensaries located near schools to close in a new series of letters issued March 23. US Attorney John Walsh warned owners of the establishments that they have 45 days to shut down or “action will be taken to seize and forfeit their property,” his office said in a press statement. Walsh’s office said the letters were sent to dispensaries that violate a state law requiring cannabis dispensaries be at least 1,000 feet from a school. He sent a similar ultimatum to 23 cannabis dispensaries that violated the buffer law in January. He said no enforcement measure was taken because those locations all ceased cannabis sales. Colorado law specifies that dispensaries must be at least 1,000 feet from schools, but also allows local governments to decrease that distance. “I think it is absolutely offensive that John Walsh is usurping and interfering with the power of the state on this issue,” Lauren Davis, a Denver medical marijuana attorney, told Reuters. “These towns spent a lot of time considering these issues and writing the legislation they believe was reasonable and looking out for the safety of their community.”

A Shasta County Superior Court judge on March 15 denied the city of Redding’s request for a court order that would have closed down medical marijuana dispensaries across the town. Judge Stephen Baker’s ruling relied heavily on the 4th District Court of Appeal decision in City of Lake Forest v. Evergreen, issued Feb. 29. The appellate court in the Lake Forest case ruled the city violated state law with its attempt to ban dispensing of medical marijuana by declaring the dispensaries nuisances. The Orange County municipality tried to label its dispensaries nuisances solely because of their existence and not because of any illegal activity, the court ruled. In a similar case in Riverside County, a dispensary trying to open its doors scored a victory against the town of Rancho Mirage March 14, as a judge ruled the municipality cannot deny the dispensary’s request for a certificate of occupancy.

A judge for the US District Court for the Eastern District of California on Feb. 28 dismissed a lawsuit challenging the US Attorney’s authority to prosecute medical marijuana providers in the state. The suit was filed in November by Sacramento’s El Camino Wellness Center Collective, after the US Attorney’s Office sent a letter to the collective and its landlord warning that its activities violated federal law. The plaintiffs relied on a 2009 Justice Department memorandum, referred to as the “Ogden Memo,” that said “certain marijuana users and providers would be a lower priority for prosecution than others,” specifically citing “individuals whose actions are in clear and unambiguous compliance with existing state laws providing for the medical use of marijuana.” Judge Garland Burrell ruled that the memorandum was not legally enforceable, and that the government’s enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act “is not inconsistent with the enforcement policy stated in the Ogden Memo.” In a statement, El Camino Wellness Center said it was disappointed with the court’s decision and they plan to appeal. This lawsuit is one of four similar suits filed in California after US Attorneys in the state announced their intent to prosecute medical marijuana dispensaries.

United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 770 has decided to take Los Angeles area cannabis dispensary workers under its wing. The union announced March 22 that “health care and grocery workers will welcome the medical cannabis workers and their successful organizing campaign into their union.” Said Local 770 president Rick Icaza: “This is the next step in professionalizing and stabilizing this new sector of the health care industry. Unionization and collective bargaining bring better training, less turnover, and more stability to the health care industry. This is a positive step towards successfully integrating compassionate care into our system of health care.” The UFCW has also unionized cannabis workers in Oakland and in Fort Collins, CO. It has supported mobilizations against the federal crackdown on California’s cannabis industry, and thrown its support behind a proposed ballot initiative that would establish statewide norms for regulating and taxing the industry.

Washington’s I-502—an initiative approved for the ballot in December—is creating a storm of dissension within the state’s cannabis community. The measure would legalize possession of up to one ounce of cannabis by adults 21 and over, but limit sales to state-licensed stores overseen by the liquor control board. It contains no provision permitting home grow. It also contains a Driving Under the Influence of Cannabis (DUIC) provision that would make anyone guilty if they test at above 5 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) of active THC in blood. Critics call this an unscientific and arbitrary level. Arrayed against I-502 are the Washington Safe Cannabis Act coalition (which is proffering an alternative proposal with no DUIC provision), Sensible Washington, and Patients Against I-502. It is supported by New Approach Washington, which is in turn supported by the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU-WA).

The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled Feb. 23 that mouth swabs may be used to extract DNA samples from any adult arrested on felony charges in California. The 2-1 decision upholds a 2004 voter-enacted provision, Proposition 69, that requires law enforcement officers to collect such samples from all felony arrestees. This mandate was challenged by the plaintiffs as a violation of Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure. Justice Milan Smith, Jr. affirmed the lower court’s denial of plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction.

Rep. Bob Filner became the first mayoral candidate Feb. 28 to endorse San Diego’s Compassionate Use Dispensary Regulation and Taxation initiative, which would tax and regulate medical marijuana in the city. “It just makes sense to regulate medical marijuana, otherwise, as a city, we limit our ability to conduct oversight,” Filner told the San Diego Reader. “If medical marijuana is prohibited, the city misses out on valuable revenue, and patients don’t have legal access or the ability to manage pain and enjoy regular activities.” The Patient Care Association, representing more than 60 cannabis collectives (many now closed), joined forces with Citizens for Patient Rights to qualify the initiative for November’s ballot with 62,057 signatures by May 22. The initiative’s campaign consultant, Cynara Velazquez said she is confident in the voters, citing “the desperation facing patients and caregivers, plus the resurgence of the cartel in the vacuum of regulated access.” State Assemblymember Tom Ammiano and former Los Angeles Deputy Police Chief Stephen Downing have also endorsed the measure. -Veteran journalist Bill Weinberg is the former news editor of High Times magazine and now producer of the websites Global Ganja Report (globalganjareport.com), monitoring the global war on cannabis, and World War 4 Report, monitoring the global “war on terrorism.” His books include Homage to Chiapas: The New Indigenous Struggles in Mexico (Verso, 2000) and Cannabis Trips: A Global Guide that Leaves No Turn Unstoned (Ivy Group, 2010).

My question is how to remove them . Varieties differ in the number of hours of darkness needed to initiate flowering.there is no stem to snip off at the base of the bud. Some indicas continue to flower and never re-vegetate. I had heard you said to go ahead and remove them to hopefully re-grow til the end of the season. Plants with this problem usually readjust to vegetative growth after a few weeks. On March 22.. (continued on page 62) 60 . there is still a long enough dark period to force flowering. These early season plants were hit with fluorescents for a brief period late each night until they were placed in flowering. because the dark period is too long. even in mid-summer. go back to vegetative cycle and then flower normally in the fall. The first is that the plants were placed outdoors while there was still a dark period long enough to force flowering. This forces them into flowering. They are pretty small but very sticky. What should I do? Ed: There are three reasons why plants may start to flower early. Early maturing varieties often require as few as 8 or 9 hours of uninterrupted darkness daily to force flowering. As the days get longer most varieties. resulting in small plants.S. The second cause might be that there was a dramatic change in the lighting environment.When plants are placed outdoors early in the season. The third is that the plants are receiving a critical amount of darkness that is enough to force the variety to flower. as the buds have formed on the stalk. indica and indica-sativa hybrids flower very early. Instead they are forced into flowering. I’ve not seen this before. they are coming straight out of the stalk. and Mediterranean Europe including Spain and Italy.When some varieties of seedlings or clones are grown under continuous light or a long light cycle such as 20 hours daily and then placed outdoors where they receive only 14-15 hours of light. the change of light cycle is enough to trigger a flowering response even if the variety usually doesn’t flower under a 9 or 10 hour dark period. excluding some indicas. March or April. the first day of spring. In lower latitude areas such as southern California and other areas in the lower tier of the U.UNINTENDED EARLY FLOWERING Julie (Internet): I’m growing outdoors and some of the clones seem a bit retarded. The solution for this problem is the same no matter what the cause. to keep the plants in vegetative growth. the plants receive a little less than 12 hours of darkness. the UNINTENDED EARLY FLOWERING To prevent early flowering the dark cycle was interrupted in the middle of the night.
They have started to flower. Ed: Height doesn’t matter.A. Even at this late point bend the stems and then support the bends or creases with dowels or bamboo stakes so they stay upright. They would be loose and stretched and might have an odd appearance. The temperature was kept at 72 degrees and humidity at 50 percent. That’s an approximation. It was a mix of sativas and indicas. with 32 plants in it. Spain): I was just given a 1000-watt HPS light. WHEN TO FLOWER INDOORS Keith (Norwich. U.Another reason the yield might be low is the varieties of plants that you grew. water. TOO TALL FOR GREENHOUSE Ann Spot (Rotterdam. the darkness countdown is restarted from zero. They may remain fairly small. For best yields. the growth rate will increase considerably when you raise the temperature to about 80 to 85 degrees. England): I have 17 feet of grow space between the plant medium and the light. What is really important is that the whole garden area is covered with canopy. You may be also able to support the growth by tying the branches to the greenhouse structure. How can I increase my yield? Ed: Part of the reason that the plants had a low yield is that their growth rate was slowed because of the low temperature. What should I do? Ed: Letting the buds crash into the roof of the greenhouse will create a moisture crisis that will result in mold plaguing your plants. shading them and thwarting their growth. their metabolism is affected by the temperature. one per container. plants’ rate of metabolism and photosynthesis is slow even if all other conditions—light. Indicas growing in low latitudes require the light-break until they are ready to be forced to flower. Choose the healthiest. most vigorous plants to transplant. Since you were growing a garden of mixed sativas and indicas.): I live in the Midwest. So plants in a garden need not be tall but should be wide. If the buds appear normal. By that time it should grow large enough to produce three to four ounces of bud if it can survive the weather to maturity in mid-October. you find that it covers about 2/3 of the garden surface. If I plant seedlings outdoors in the middle of July how big a yield can I expect to receive from a plant that normally yields 400 grams in ideal conditions? Would the plants stay in vegetative state for 30 days. LATE PLANTING Kelly (Wisconsin. The underbrush of tall plants. If the plants flowered because they were placed out too early in the season. The plants will fill in the rest of the area during flowering. I think that that the light mishap was an anomaly TINY PLANTS Camille (valencia. so I’m afraid it’s too late to top or bend the stems. When the dark period is interrupted by light for even a few moments.Are my three weeks into flowering cycle plants in danger or will they be OK? What if the light timer has been doing this for weeks? Ed: If the light interruption happened only once it will have little or no effect on the flowers. the sativas may have towered over the indicas. The light came on early and I turned it off. is not productive so why grow them? Force the plants to flower when looking down at the canopy. Then maintain the leaf temperature at about 85 degrees by adjusting the room temperature. only producing a few ounces per plant. until mid-August. Indica and indica-sativa hybrids begin to flower in early August and will be ready in late September. which receive little light. and then go into flowering? Ed: If you were growing a sativa-indica hybrid the plant would resist flowering until mid-August. and then reset the timer to the correct hours. If the plants are coming from a continuous light environment they will need the light for about a month before they adjust to the new environment. How tall should the plants be when I change the light cycle to flower? My plants are about 6 feet tall now and really bushy.): I had a 3 foot by six foot white flood tray with a 35 gallon reservoir. row plants that have similar growth characteristics. nutrients and CO2— are abundant. Can I grow all the clones in the tray? What should I do? Ed: Your tray can hold between 36 and 48 6-inch planting containers. MESSED UP TIMER Angela (Internet): The power went out during night-cycle. Hermaphroditism also sometimes occurs.dark period must be interrupted.S. Imagine that the light is like a water spray that must reach all parts of the plant. If the timer had messed up regularly the flowers would appear stressed.S. LOW YIELD Oscar (U. you can stop using a light-break in mid-May. I used a 600-watt HPS lamp on a Light Rail.
