    I don't do this too much....nothing wrong with it in my eyes, just don't do much MJ pic posting (probably just too dang lazy) but with our dispensaries in MD opening just a couple of weeks ago, I thought to share some pics.

    Please understand, only two growers are shipping and they are shipping very limited amount/type of product. There are only five or so dispensaries open. IMO, this herb was pushed hard to harvest/dry/cure and may have been freeze dried to speed this up. This will not remain the case, but in at least the case of the Northern Lights, I thought the trichomes looked a bit ragged and worn down.

    The Guice was much better (and vapes beautifully) but again, trichomes look a bit milky (this is good) with no amber that I could see.

    I don't care....50 years of running from the law so MMJ legalization feels like an emancipation and I'm very glad to take part (and I still have a bit of N Cali herb so I have room to be patient).

    My photography skills, and especially the macro shots, needs a bit of work. LOL

    cartridge I picked up....very, very nice...just way too overpriced but this will all come down as competition heats up...and then we will have NJ and DE coming online with full rec so the competition will be regional and should drive prices down.

    Come on down, Bud!!

    Oh, and I LOVE lemon anything. Super Lemon Haze makes me giggle (which as you all know, ain't easy to do to this grumpy old curmudgeon) as did this Lemonhead OG.

    Any other lemon lovers out there?

    @Baron23. I love lemon, even have lemon shampoo...

    Lucky lucky lucky. Haha. How much did the cart cost? Just curious as I dream on my state being legal, lol

    Oh no, do you really want to know.....f'ing $90 for .5 g. In an ok, working great, but not like a refillable CCell cart. I bought one for the hell of it and to support a new dispensary that just opened a week or so ago (yeah, Rise Bethesda....great job, nice experience).

    That's a $35-40 dollar cart, I think???

    Anybody want to school me on cart cost in like CO, WA, CA, OR, AZ, anywhere??

    Nice weed porn!

    I hope it happens quicker down there than up here in Mass... after what, 4-5 years? storefront medical dispensary carts are still a total ripoff at upwards of $80 for a .5 ml cart...! But Massachusetts fux everything up anyway... look how long they’ve been dragging their heels on rec... it’s gonna go right to the deadline... we’ll be lucky if it happens by the end of next year even tho it has to by August! The days of gouging by the 12 or so storefronts are numbered...

    But you got me there....after all those years its still that expensive. Fuck that. There will be a black market, there always has, when government imposes rules that exceed the tolerance of the electorate.

    In a way it kinda does exist up here right now with delivery “caregiver” services.... it’s way cheaper but you’re never quite sure of the product... many sell west coast carts and ‘trates... even tho it’s currently illegal! Many aren’t even asking for cards anymore.... it’s all pretty whacked... but I’ve waited this long, I can wait a little while more.... X-)

    In Oregon a .5 gram concentrate cartridge is about $40. A bit higher or lower depending on strain and producer.
    When oregon first legalized recreational cannabis there were festivals (some free entrance, some not) and when we entered they would give us a bag with a few goodies in it and then we would go from vendor table to vendor table collecting free samples. It was fantastic fun. Plus there were dab stations and cannabis ice cream samples and cannabis chocolate samples.
    Then they said the law didn’t allow it so it stopped.
    Now they are trying to get the law amended.

    nice pics, mate.

    I love lemon strains as you know, especially Hazes.

    I just wanted to say, I recently tried Double Lemon Cheesecake and I was very impressed. It tasted great. lemon and earthy it kinda did taste like lemon cheesecake, and really blew me away very potent. 70/30 sativa dominant upto 27% THC. I was informed by the friend I got it from.lol

    If you get a chance to try some I think you’d really like it.

    I’m thinking of going strain tasting in Amsterdam next year with a few friends. It’s not cheap but it’s a great opportunity to try new strains.

    Also I love Barney’s Farm seedbank, they produce my very favourite strains like Tangerine Dream, Pineapple Chunk, Pineapple Haze, Triple Cheese and Ayahuasca Purple Just to name a few.

    I know there’s a few new releases this year I’ve yet to try though.

    I could spend days at a time at the Barneys coffee shop.

    All the best,

    Aj.

    I know we have not always got along ... BUT ... I will say if you were ever in need of medication I would... Skip train to MD to help you out..... That is the great thing about not giving a damn..... I have had my own personal dispensary for about 5 years now alot of work but damn is it worth it.. Barneys Farm LSD which is Skunk x Mazar... 28% THC 1.5 CBD... I always keep that stocked... I love Barneys when it comes to Photo's but there Autos suck ass... and congrats to finally be able to get vape oil... that is something I ENVY lol.. Enjoy :) also some of my fave banks @Aj85 Barneys farm, Sweet Seeds,CBD SEEDS,Dinafem,Fastbuds and Dutch Passion are the best of the best in my experiences.

    I think I’ve tried the LSD strain, but I was in Amsterdam during a Cannibis Cup and tried a lot of different strains that week. lol

    I hate auto flowers in general to be honest. I just don’t think they’re anywhere near as good, yet.

    I can see how they could be useful to some people, but they’re not for me.

    All the best,

    I actually have a few of the ccell carts I came across out of happenstance. Work well, wondering how quickly it will go through my oil though. It’s a 1gr size and packs a punch though. It’s a distillate super lemon haze, very slight hint of lemon.
  • Kakarot

    .... I love Auto's some are really pushing the limits with 60-70 days from seed to chop with THC hitting the 25/27% and they pack great CBD content as well as all of the other Cannabinoid's but there not as easy to grow as Photoperiods and if you do something wrong they are not forgiving like photo's... also you can transplant but it drastically reduces yield and potency... it is best if you start where your going to finish... Maybe one day we can chill.. I could change your opinion about the Art of the Auto... :D
  • Aj85

    I’ve definitely got friends that agree with you and say autos are the future....I guess I’m just old fashioned and think perfection shouldn’t be rushed. Lol

    I’ve just not been impressed with the autos I’ve personally tried, even when grown by experts.

    I will keep my mind open about autos next time I’m in Amsterdam. I’ll try them again and see if my mind can be changed.

    All the best,

    Aj.

    Def always wanna keep an open mind... I have seen the craziest thing when it comes to "Pros" they can run the best Photo'Op you could see but could not do a Auto Run to save their life... It really is a "Art" and different grow style... They have come a long, long way in the last couple years, cheers man :D

    My dispensary is the only one I'm aware of that actually posts prices. The downside is they don't post potency numbers. But if you want to take a look at prices here in Illinois, take a look http://www.3cdispensary.com/naperville-menu-2/#concBox

    Typically carts are $50-70. Best deals, when you can find it is 600ml for $50 or when on sale.

    Awesome! Imma be up in Boston next week. They got similar shanagins going on there with beautiful stuff man. $60 carts, $200 o's. I can't wait to taste those concentrates man, super jealous you got ez access to them >.< love the pics :D

    I couldn’t agree with you more!

    When it comes to learning new things, you should always “empty your cup!” never believe your mind is full, or you’ll never be able to pour in more knowledge.

    All my own personal growing experience is oldschool HPS and Hydro/ NFT systems lol. So I’m very outdated. I’m a bit of a dinosaur in that department!

    I haven’t really grown in years, since I’ve had children while living in a non legal area.

    To be fair, I haven’t tried an autoflower for a few years, so like I said I’ll definitely try some next time I’m Amsterdam.

    All the best,

    Love Haze, amnesia is my favorite, but super silver is a close second. I haven't gotten my hands on lemon haze yet, but on my list. But can anyone tell me what makes Haze different, why is it a Haze?

    The illustrious Haze sativa first took root in Santa Cruz, California during the 1960s where long growing seasons accommodated her lengthy flowering cycle. Since then, Haze has become the proud parent of countless hybrids around the globe, passing on its genetics from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand, and South India. Although Haze cultivators must wait patiently for Haze flowers to reach full maturation, few strains can match the high-energy, creative buzz provided by this sativa staple. Haze's aroma is typically characterized by a spicy scent accented by hints of citrus and earthy sweetness.

    Yeah, but that's all just water under the bridge. Hopefully, we have both let all of that just go down the river.

    And thank you for the offer...those of us who are medical patients really do understand how valuable access to this herb is for us. I appreciate it.

    few of the ccell carts.....(sic) It’s a 1gr size ...(sic) It’s a distillate super lemon haze, very slight hint of lemon.Toked23

    Zow237

    Ah yep....that's what I figured as I shelled out $90! haha Well, $20 is super cheap and it is CO2 extracted with all terps being MJ derived (so they say)....so $20 is a good bit lower than my expectations but I'm glad to see what the results will be when true competition comes to MD.

    Very nice, Philly. Thanks. I'm wondering though...in a number of pics of some different grows here, it often does not appear that the lights are adjustable for height. I'm not a grower, but I was under the impression you wanted to keep lights 12-18" above the top of the plants? No??
  • Philly

    this is typical for large scale grows. There are way more lumens if they were closer but when dealing with that scale it is just not practical. Each plant needs to be checked out daily for trimming lower branches, checking for mold or any kind of stress. Having the lights right above the plants makes it more difficult and dangerous. If it was smaller scale it's easier to raise the lights on the chain and do what ever needed.
