The Boston Freedom Fest is the largest festival celebrating Cannabis on the East Coast. For the 28th year, stoners gather on Boston Common to share a smoke with a few thousand of their friends. Great music, lots of food trucks and tremendous clouds of ganja smoke. Enjoy this 360 Video for the full 4:20 experience:

Tuesday is here again. This prickly little Tokermon is Spiner. A sharpened weed eater, Spiner is hard to catch and even harder to hold. You can find Spiner sticking to the woody stems of the biggest Cannabis plants.

…see you next Tuesday…
The group of plants from this second grow have grown beyond the size of the of the box. I should have taken steps to bend these plants to train them for lower growth. I’m hoping the switch to flowering lighting will stop the upward growth some.
It hasn’t been quite a week under the “flowering” schedule yet there is already evidence of preflowering females. I examined all of the cannabis plants carefully and I can see no signs of male flowers.
Hopefully I’ll get visible evidence that will confirm the sex of all of the cannabis plants. See you soon…
update: It appears I have all female plants. I removed the seventh plant as the Massachusetts law only allows 6 flowering plants per household.
This pile of nugs is known as Bruce Banner, named after that mild mannered guy that turns into the Incredible Hulk. This Sativa dominant hybrid strain has a high THC content with a great balance between the Sativa and Indica effects. The Bruce Banner strains (yes, there are more than one) are developed from cross breeding Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush.

The seedlings have had some explosive growth! I think it is fair to say these have entered the vegetative stage. The growth is so lush and the leaves so fat, I think I’ll need to prepare a second grow chamber to contain it all.
I lowered the plants by removing the 3″ box I had underneath the pots. These plants are starting to grow upward so that extra room from the light source was necessary.
I “topped” some of the plants by pinching that tight cluster of new leaves at the tip of the plant. This stops the tendency to grow one main cola, and splits the plant into two main stems. When the cannabis plant is topped at a young age, the plant will grow multiple colas by adding new branches for buds to develop on and (hopefully) keep the plant’s height down.
I will top the other plants when their new leaves get a bit larger. I always hesitate when I’m grabbing that bright green cluster of new growth. I hate to hurt my plants in any way but this is a necessary step.
