We, the “general public”, tend to associate cannabis with its main and most famous compounds with pharmacologic effect, THC and CBD, and with their most characteristic effects like hunger, drowsiness, and some other brain-level effects more complex to define. In other spheres, forensic for instance, they have been discussing THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) since the year 2000, as a marker to determine if the presence of THC in biological samples came from the consumption of drugs like Sativex or, otherwise, from the consumption of cannabis.

La cosecha


After about three months indoors or some long six months outdoors, the time has come to reap the fruit of our work.

Good morning friends of,

Welcome on board to resume our journey through indoor growing. This time we will start a comparison between two parallel crops, with same varieties and using white reflective layers in the grow boxes. On one of them we will use LED lighting and 2 MaxSpect R420R screens  –new model, still on trial, it needs 180 watts per screen, total 360w consumption. Creates, according to the manufacturers, a luminosity that equals 600w, but I’d say it’s more on the lines of 500w, as we saw in other chapters-, and another one of HPS 400w and Xtrasun luminaire.

This morning, while searching on the internet for an oatmeal recipe to make my children for breakfast (experts say it's good for their bones), right after the first options I came across a video called Narco Crops (Narco Cultivos, in the original Spanish), by Azucena Sánchez and Maria Degand. It is quite a beautiful little film, fresh to the point of bordering on the type of visual poetry  that reminds one of certain scenes from Tarkovski's Stalker or, more obliquely, of Peter Greenaway's Water Wrackets. The content of the video consists of a map of Mexico drawn on the bottom of what appears to be a teflon-coated container, with the silhouette well outlined in white on a dark background.
