Grown in a one gallon pot on a windowsill with satisfying results: Royal Queen Seeds “Royal Medic” strain. This plant is always a pleasure to grow. We topped the plant twice, resulting in four main buds, and she remained low maintenance and a fast grower.

Flowering started like clockwork after 8 weeks from germination, and we let the flowering grow until September nights grew cooler and the fan leaves began to fall on their own. Not only is this a sign that the plant has matured, it’s a great way to let the plant naturally flush itself of chlorophyll, which leads to a smoother smoke, if that’s your goal. Even if you plan on oil or alcohol, etc. extraction – let your plants fully mature; your returns will be much better.

One thing that I have also noticed is that pests simply do not gravitate towards this plant! This is not to say that they’ll turn it down, but with several other plants suffering from thrips, and one thick-budded hybrid losing a few buds to mold after a heavy rain, the RQS Royal Medic was the easiest of the bunch to care for. A recommended grow, to be sure!

Here are a couple of shots of the finished plant before harvesting:

Obviously, this post is coming in late December, and harvest was several months ago. So, what’s the word? How are the results? This RQS Royal Medic will come to the rescue if you’re suffering from aches and pains, to be sure. It is on the scale of head/body effects far more “body” than “head”. So if you don’t like a dopey “high” feeling, yet want the benefits of a high-CBD plant, the Royal Medic may be the right doc to call on. Keep in mind, we are NOT affiliated with RQS, but for an easy to grow medical strain, they get the “Panik Seal Of Approval”!

Lemon Haze? Auto Blueberry? Afghan Kush? Choosing A Marijuana Strain For Your Grow, Pt.1

Indica/sativa hybrid in flowering

The most daunting task as a novice grower is probably choosing a cannabis strain for your grow. Googling “cannabis strains”, “seed shop”, “or “buy marijuana seeds” will just leave you reeling from the seemingly endless variety of seeds available.

You may already be familiar with the basic sub-types of the cannabis plant; the warmth-loving, tall growing Cannabis Sativa, the bushier, cooler-climate adapted Cannabis Indica, and the wily, northern Cannabis Ruderalis.

The cannabis seeds you have perused online are likely to be hybrids (in varying proportion), raised from Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis plants.  Reputable online shops such as Dutch Passion, Sensi Seeds, and Nirvana Seeds often provide you with information about the origin of the parent plants (if available) and provide a list of the characteristics you can expect from the plants that will grow from their seeds.

(The stress is on “can expect”. There are even variations within a given strain of seeds, although the long established seed banks are known for the stability of the seed strains they offer; the descriptions they provide are backed by much experience in breeding marijuana plants. Caveat emptor.)

The first thing you should ask yourself is, Read More…
