We already have a popular page on how to make cannabutter, but if you want to see how to do it in video format, this is a great tutorial.
HOW TO MAKE CANNABUTTER.
The two techniques are known as topping and FIMing. At GWE, we’ve covered both methods extensively and they both work exceptionally well to get your plants to grow multiple colas.
This beautiful 10-minute tour of incredible fields of outdoor marijuana plants around the world with commentary by world-renowned grower Jorge Cervantes will take your breath away.
This video describes and shows two methods growers use to get additional colas (so you have a wide bushy plant instead of a tall plant with a single cola).
9.) How to Tell If Your Cannabis is Ready For Harvest.
This method works great for marijuana. Remember, marijuana seeds should NOT get light during the germination process. If you don’t want to use plastic sandwich bags, you can use the exact same method, but place the paper towels between 2 plates.
It might be your pH! This video explains how to check and adjust the pH of your water before watering your marijuana garden.

But still, when I rewatch these videos in 2019 I’m surprised at how well the series holds up. The information is useful and to the point, the tone is fun but knowledgeable, and it’s a bit goofy, so you aren’t likely to feel even a little intimidated. Plus, it’s refreshing to see someone teach in a way that isn’t specifically aimed at Youtube.

I’m sure you’ve realized this video isn’t on Youtube. Youtube banned this video (which hurt the videos feelings), so we moved it to Vimeo where it’s safely playing without fear of deletion.
Here are links to all 9 parts in the series: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.
I especially loved this comment:
This video is a little on the longer side considering the topic of its content. But it explains everything well, and if you watch till the end, you’ll definitely walk away being able to germinate cannabis seeds. Plus, these folks peppered this video with some jaw-dropping pics of sprouting seeds. The quality and seedling pics alone make this video worth the watch.

If you want a rewarding way to use your trim that only takes minutes to do, making dry-ice hash is the way to go! Also, someone tell Youtube to stop deleting weed-related videos!
How to tell if your cannabis is mature by GrowerMD.
We found this video series many years ago, but the series is probably old enough to drive a car by now! And the guy who does the videos is…quirky to say the least. He’s painted green from head to toe, the video resolution is at least 1/3 of what’s normal these days, and he talks in a near-whisper for the videos.
Many of you have written in to tell us how much you love growing videos and that you want us to make more videos. We hear you loud and clear!

When it comes to humidity, you might be surprised at how much of an effect it can have on growing cannabis plants! If the humidity is too high, your plants tend to grow slower and are more susceptible to mold. But if the humidity is too low, your plants can’t make energy as well as they normally could. They also tend to run into weird problems like unexplainable nutrient deficiencies. Despite the topic, this video is really interesting and shows you simple things you can do that will make a difference!
5.) How to Control the pH of Your Water When Growing Marijuana.
We specifically chose these videos because they answer some of the most common questions we receive at GrowWeedEasy.com, and we found the content to be exceptional!
You can FIM multiples times, and it doesn’t slow down the plant’s growth as much as topping does.
This video is high-quality stuff. It goes through a lot of useful information quickly, the narration is great, and the production value is fantastic. You won’t watch this video and suddenly be a master grower, but you’ll get the basics (and more) in only 14 minutes!

Do you seem to keep getting nutrient problems and have no idea why?
“I Grow Chronic” by Mr. Green.
Just like humans, plants need the right nutrients. The most important ones for your cannabis plants are nitrogen (N), potassium (K) and phosphate (P). These make up the ratios you will typically see on fertilizer labels.
Loam is ideal for containers as well as for outdoor growing. Unfortunately, it is usually the most expensive soil to buy. But if you are interested in growing the best plants possible, it can pay big dividends in the long run. You can also build up your own loam soil by adding organic matter to it. If you have a compost bin, you can use the compost to improve your soil. This will be a time-consuming and ongoing process but with grit and persistence will pay off in the long run.
Of these types, loam is by far the best soil mix for growing marijuana plants and many other types of crops. Loam is a mixture of clay, sand, and silt, bringing forth the best qualities of these disparate types of soil while minimizing their worst attributes.
Test kits are available to measure your soil’s acidity, or you can take a sample to your friendly local extension agent. If your dirt does not have the proper acidity, soil amendments are available to lower or raise the pH level in your soil. Your local nursery, garden store or extension agent can make some suggestions.
Silt soils have lots of minerals and retain moisture well. Like clay, however, this type of soil can become compacted and hard in certain conditions. It can also form a crust, making it difficult for moisture and nutrients to reach plants’ roots.
Loam for Growing Marijuana & Other Crops.
Sand is easily permeable for root growth, for instance, but it does not hold on to water or fertilizer well.
Clay is just the opposite. When it’s hot and dry, clay can become hard as a rock, making it difficult for roots to penetrate. Clay drains poorly and is hard to cultivate. On the plus side, it is rich in minerals and natural nutrients.
The optimal ratio for loam is 20% clay, 40% silt and 40% sand. Most folks think a pH of 6.0 is best for cannabis, with a range of 5.8 to 6.3 being acceptable. With a pH close to neutral, loam is typically in that zone or close to it.
Growing cannabis outdoors offers many benefits. Firstly, it can be very affordable. You do not need to provide a structure like a greenhouse or high tunnel. In addition, artificial light is not necessary if you place it in the right spot in your yard, because your plants can benefit from the sun’s abundant and free energy.
You will want to provide the proper amount of light and water to your plants, of course. A drip irrigation system can cut your water bills while improving the health of your plants. Kits are available that give you everything you need to get started. If you prefer, you can start from scratch and obtain separate components to put them all together.
Four basic soil types exist: sand, clay, silt, and loam. Each has its pros and cons for gardening.
In addition, you do not necessarily have to provide costly soil for your plants outside. But for the best results, you want good marijuana soil that will help your plants grow healthy and happy. DripWorks is here to offer you a few simple tips for finding and creating the best soil for growing marijuana outdoors.
The right balance is essential for healthy growth. Many pre-mixed marijuana fertilizers are available, making your job easier. But if you prefer, you can also formulate your own.
