Thanks to the modern age, and the plethora of technological advancements it has plopped in the laps of of millions, we are currently living in an age where information is readily available. This is a beautiful concept for many blatant reasons, one can now access millions of recipes for free or find tutorials for any odd niche one may find themselves involved with; it is amazing. Unfortunately, this awesome medium for information to be shared is often taken advantage of and used to spread untrue information. For all of you reading this, this facilitation of the spread of nonsensical information has penetrated the marijuana community so much today and there are many untrue and rapidly popularizing myths on growing marijuana that are tormenting amateur growers, in this article, I will debunk several of these errors.

I’ve had enough time and energy wasted trying to help students who followed more bullsh!t advice online than I can count.

Here are some of the biggies.

Myth #1: “Miracle Gro plant food will produce a massive yield with minimal effort.”

Many amateur growers seek advice for growing plants from public figures within reach, such as people who work in a gardening shop or a hydroponics store, and unfortunately these people do not grow marijuana (usually) and marijuana has very plant-specific needs and so general information from these layman growers usually will not apply to growing weed. Miracle Gro plant food, and other supplements, are all usually based on a single formula that is built to maintain itself for the entire duration of a plant’s grow cycle.

Many plants, including marijuana, have3 several stages within a grow cycle, and each stage has different needs for lighting, nutrients, watering, etc, and so the as the plant develops these variables must be adjusted. Miracle Gro will most likely just give your plants nutrient burn, there are many other plant food alternatives to choose for that are all specifically produced with the intention of perpetuating the growth of marijuana specifically.

Myth #2:”Urinating on your plants will replenish lost nutrients.”

This tip has spread through many marijuana cultivating message boards and I really can’t understand why, perhaps it’s the click-bait shock factor? Or perhaps it is because there is some truth to the myth. Reports have shown that diluted urine can provide some nutrients to a plant, however, this does not “replenish” lost nutrients and urinating directly onto the plant is not only disgusting (you’re smoking this man!) but potentially harmful and acidic. There are several cannabis nutrient systems out there, use one, don’t piss on your plants guys.

(Leave your pee for the compost piles.)

Myth #3: “You will need $________ to grow.”

The truth is that there are a variety of methods to grow marijuana, and while there is a significant amount of “give and get in return” regarding the money you put into marijuana investment and the product you get out of it, it does not need to be a back breaking expense and these articles are probably just looking to sell you their expensive equipment claiming that it is the best to ever exist. If you have some good seeds and soil and you can grow marijuana, it’s that simple.

A lot of “it’s so expensive” comments you hear from newbies on the internet is because they have been following so much bullsh!t advice and “tutorials out there that ended up costing them ruined grows (like moldy or improperly cleared buds during final harvest), wasting months, of their time.

Starting in the right place on the right foot has been proven most cost effective.

Myth #4: “Good genetics guarantee high potency.”

This is another myth that is somewhat true. Yes, genetics play a massive role in the potential potency in your end-product. You will never grow quality kush from reggie seeds, however, you can grow reggie quality bud from kush quality seeds. While genetics are important, the only thing that guarantees you have quality bud is carefully growing, harvesting, and curing your bud.

Myth #5: “Watering your plants with alternative drinks will make them taste like the drink.”

It makes sense in a very simple way, for example, if you fill a donut with jelly it will taste like jelly. However, science is just not that simple. You see, my students, cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids give weed it’s odor, taste, and potency. Terpenes are the most responsible for the flavor of the bud, and while growing conditions and genetics can have an  effect on flavor, watering your kush with orange juice will not produce orange juice tasting kush.

Flavoring marijuana through advanced genetic ingredient introduction sequencing is a very advanced topic, discussed in the Advanced Genetics section of my book. 

…..I could write forever, but I’m going to cut this short. The fact is, the internet can screw us all up in a BIG way. I know it did when I was first starting out, that’s why I started My Mission and continue to spread the Light, Love, and Truth do all my grow their own potent healing medicine – the most Elite Marijuana on planet Earth.

Toke on friends,
