In most countries it is illegal to own seeds, grow cannabis or use cannabis. Maybe it will change for you one day if you make the effort to have your voice heard. Until that day comes it is recommended that you consult your local authorities to see what is your countries legal status with regards to growing cannabis. This book does not want you to break the law nor is it here for that purpose. This book is about cannabis and how it is grown around the world. Even though the contents of this book may show you how to acquire seeds and grow very potent plants, you are responsible for your own actions. We would like to see you grow cannabis however we would not like to see you break the law. I would also like to say that many countries have permitted medical users to grow cannabis in their home. If they have in your country then this book will be of massive benefit to you and your health. The Cannabis Grow Bible is part of a foundation series and is a developing project. We listen too and talk with 100's of growers every single year. It is with their advice that we can offer you the latest updates on growing techniques and strains.

In the Cannabis Grow Bible, Green describes methods for growers who want to maximize yield and potency. Green’s signature style blends a solid understanding of marijuana botany with practical real-world advice to help growers cope with the day-to-day demands of maintaining a high-yield garden. The book covers everything from selecting the best plant genetics to dealing with pests and predators and protecting your crop from prying eyes. It explains the “Screen of Green” technique that gives a higher yield using fewer plants, an important development for American growers who, if caught, are penalized according to number of plants.
The second edition of the Cannabis Grow Bible delivers even more of what growers are looking forfully updated and illustrated, with a new section on organics, all in glorious color!

The book is a grow bible. There is still much work that needsto be done to provide something that is truly of bible size, but that willcome in time. The reason why I know this is because cannabissuppression has suspended cannabis information gathering over thepast 60 years. I can safely say that you can find books on Roses that are10 times thicker than this book with heaps more information. Rosesare not illegal in most countries, so scientists are free to explore theRose. Sadly the same can not be said for cannabis. until now.
