Homegrown Cannabis: A Beginner’s Guide to Cultivating Organic Cannabis (Volume 3) (Cannabis Wellness)

We rated this book:


While, as the title indicates, this detailed work focuses on the growing of Cannabis, it is far more; a primer for beginning and even experienced gardeners. Delving into organic cultivation, permaculture, companion planting, organic pesticides, tool acquisition, and maintenance, Mr. Burnett’s comprehensiveness of coverage cannot be overemphasized.

As an experienced organic gardener, his sometimes extremely basic instructions for initially clueless beginners made for a bit of irritation here and there. That was totally offset by the encyclopedic thoroughness and clarity of this writing.

Varying types and origins of Cannabis cultivars see an astonishing presentation. Possible pests, ranging from mites to thrips to thieves get detailed coverage.

Grace notes as a reference work include a fine index, a bibliography, photo credits, a resources section, and suggestions for further reading. The author’s long background with medicinal plants, their cultivation, and breeding shine forth wonderfully.

Tricks and tips to maximize Cannabis yields and potency are revelations for even an experienced gardener. Selection of cultivars for varying climatic regions, lengths of growing seasons, and desired product get careful coverage. Turpene and Cannabinol contents of cultivars are presented graphically and well.

Indoor and outdoor cultivation discussion includes costs, both financial and environmental. Harvesting advice is, as all subjects are, photographically explicit.
