Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

I can grow cookies from trees (and maybe even an iPhone!)

These buds came out spectacular. I am simply stunned at the beauty this strain can produce. The quality and care FastBuds put into these genetics is clearly evident. Add a little of your own love and care - you can get results like mine!

The flowers smell delicious, I wanted to eat them right off the plant. Every day was a struggle. The lush green colours, covered in orange hairs and layers of glistening trichomes is something best witnessed in person. The flowers look as beautiful as the scents emitted from them. Photos do these buds justice but the smell is an experience all of its own.

The smell of these flowers is intoxicating, I swear this scent fills the room swiftly and pungently in seconds. You get hit immediately with strong notes of mint but this isn’t your typical mint, it’s skunky too. The two scents infiltrate and violate your nostrils like Facebook on your privacy. It’s truly remarkable. Pine is the undertone of these flowers, it’s subtle but it’s there mixed in with some earthy trace scents. It’s a very well rounded potent experience.

The effects of this strain are one of my absolute favourites. The vapours are smooth and delicious. It tastes just like it smells. It’s a very rewarding vaping experience the scents and tastes subdue you as the high THC hits set you into a deep relaxation. It hits you fast and launches into a euphoric and elevated mood. Life is good. It settles down into a balanced experience that is just as enjoyable. This stuff is great.

Cookies genetics has arguably been my top favourite for a long time, competing only with ‘white widow’ cross genetics. That’s off topic but noted my opinion may be slightly bias. These flowers are an almost perfectly balanced hybrid. By my estimation I would say it is sixty-percent indica and forty-percent sativa. This makes for a very balanced day time or evening experience. Effects lasted about 90 minutes.

I would highly recommend this strain. I thoroughly enjoyed the growing experience. These genetics are a pleasure to work with; grown properly it’s a force to be reckoned with.

Yes FastBuds, I do want a cookie.

Nutrients
GHE

I enjoy GH nutrients and would recommend them. The basic FloraTrio set is an amazing set of starter nutes with easy to follow instructions and capability to customize to your needs. CaliMagic is a nessecity in the garden as cannabis requires hearty amounts of these nutrients , especially when grown hydroponically. RapidStart is a good additive as well, it really stacked up roots quickly and helped the plants thrive. It’s pretty expensive though. Floralicious Plus is another expensive additive. It really does add a lot of extra scent to your flowers however. I got a lot of compliments of the smell when using this in my nutrient mix. Liquid KoolBloom is a great weight builder in the garden. It’s cheap too! It adds extra mass to your flowers and builds up quickly. It’s easy to burn plants with this and should he added gradually to the garden in flowering. FloraKleen is a great quality flushing solution. I add 5ml/g and then PH in the final week and I’ve got stellar results every time. It worked really good in hydroponics as it removed everything extra and left smooth tasty buds. Over all, I would recommend GH nutes and the below additives. They are a little on the expensive side for a couple of them. They do seem to make a difference though.

Well we made it.. this has been my best grow to date! I’m honestly very impressed with this harvest. The flowers came out smelling dank and delicious. The buds have a very pleasant minty skunk aroma to them that can overpower the room.

The majority of the buds came out really nice too - solid and crystal coated. The lowest of the nugs came out a little larfy which is to be expected since they got the least light under the thick canopy. I think I can improve this next time with a bit more canopy defoliation.

Ive been smoking “samples” as this batch dries and the stuff is potent and flavourful. I’m sure after it gets a proper cure it will be even better! It’s very rewarding to grow your own top-shelf cannabis and be able to share it with friends and family. This harvest was just in time for Christmas .. just in time to share over the holidays :flag-ca::evergreen_tree:.

The results from this batch were spectacular.

The entire tent was packed full of cannabis.

These two GSC plants yielded approximately 580g each of wet cannabis which resulted in 210g total of perfectly dried cannabis.

That’s 7.5oz dried from two plants! Woah!

The plants I had in my tent during the production of this journal..

The 2xGSC yielded 210g dried. (7.5oz)
The 1xCream Cookies yielded 115g dried. (4oz)
The 2xGorilla Glue yielded very impressive numbers, pulling in 140g and 180g (5 & 6.5oz)

This gives me about 23oz of dried cannabis ..

This equals just short of 650g of dried cannabis , grown in 10 weeks. They call em FastBuds for a reason people! This was achieved with a with my custom built 500w COB LED!

This grow put up a very nice ratio of 1.3g/w dry!!

Tutorials we’ve covered:

Week 3 - The Easy LST
Week 4 - The best watering table
Week 5 - An Auto Watering system
Week 6 - LED COB frame build
Week 7 - LED COB electrical work
Week 8 - LED COB specifications

I hope you enjoy this series as much as me!
Thank you to everybody who followed along!
It’s been a pleasure!

Update: It’s been a couple months since harvest on these lovely ladies. I’ve saved a few ounces of these buds and built myself a DIY 10-Ton Rosin Press for $582.49 Canadian. Pretty good ! The press is a beast!! I’ve added on videos of these nugs getting a press. My first press ever too!

I got a 17% yield on my first couple presses. I’ve since been able to increase this up to 20% by adjusting technique. Awesome! :+1::skin-tone-2:

Grow Questions
TheWeedMan week 1 started grow question 11 months ago
As a first time coco coir grower what are some things to look out for or make sure to do? This is my 3rd growing experience, my previous two grows were done in soil. So I’m not a complete noob. Please provide a good break down on the coco coir growing experience for me.

Dude - no reach out on this? I found it on a browse and I’ve been thinking on a Pure GSC strain for a while now! Both ironic and Sweet! Will follow. Now with respect to coco - IMO it’s not much different from soil but I trust you’ve already seen that it’s got much better drainage properties. The key difference is it’s nutrient holding power in relation to soil as well as appropriate supplementation of the nutrients that soil has, that coco lacks (ie. calmag). As long as you supplement for the first month or so with calmag and keep a close eye out for nutrient burn (go easy/not full strength with nutrient formula for first run) it should be very similar to a soil grow. That’s the best I got for ya. Made the switch to coco myself because I like hand watering but would prefer a slightly faster growth rate. Cheers broski and looking forward to this one growing out!!!:facepunch::+1:

Your plants look great. The only thing I believe you should improve is training: a more agressive use of LST and super cropping to keep the plant squat. Good luck mate.
TheWeedMan week 10 started grow question 8 months ago
What are your thoughts on these plants ? Do you have experience putting the plants in a prolonged dark period for 24-72 hours before harvest? If so, what happened? Does this method improve the quality of the final product ?

LaBOSSANOVA answered grow question 8 months ago
hey man, there's a lot of FUD about the dark period, basically the main idea is that there's little you can do in the last 48 hours of a 3 month grow that will do something significant on the grow overall. but the dark period for sure has some benefits, for example a dark period before the chop means less photosynthesis chemicals present for the dry + cure. Second the dark period will boost the creation of terpenes. some say it's good for thc, but trychomes take 2 weeks or more to really make THC, so that"s FUD. second thing is that on planet earth it's almost never dark for two days straight, anything really more than 24H and for sure 48H will start messing with the trychomes and they could oxidise which is bad because you loose that much in potency. Hope this clears this up a bit, good luck ! :rocket:

Really nice yield and beautiful buds!! As for the bubble hash, if you don't have the washing machine, I'm telling you its grueling work. I only have 1 gallon bags, but even with 5gallon, its gonna suck. Might I suggest you research the dry ice method? It looks like it pulls a lot more out than the bubble hash with ice water. Also, you can use same bags for it. Less work, higher return. Good luck, awesome grow!!

@BeefWellingtons, he recently got the license. So it’s not at full capacity yet. He is Pheno hunting for some fire genetics right now. All photoperiods , currently he has them indoor DWC setup under LEDs.

@TheWeedMan, that sounds like a full time job growing ganja. How awesome! Is he growing in soil, soiless, or hydro? I'm guessing indoor? Does he grow photos or auto? I would love to see the setup of a grow like that.

Lovely videos, everything you did looks awesome!

I also have a COB set (assembled it myself!) but sadly I can't use it at its max power because of heat (I have not found CO2 too) which saddens me a bit.

I'm also growing the same strain too! But yours looks quite different compared to mine (it's my first grow and I made some mistakes when I was feeding her) which makes me feel a little jealous because my baby doesn't look as pretty as yours!... but meh, I suppose I'll do better next time haha.

For how many days did you flush the roots as well? Or you didn't do it at all?

Thanks!

@BigBadLion, just do the coco bro! It’s way easier , in my opinion at least.
Check the tutorial if needed ! :)

@TheWeedMan, Hey man!

I run 5 COBs running @ 50w each (Citizen CLU048 1212) in a 2.6x2.6x5.9 tent.

I'll probably do one or two more runs with soil then try coco and finally go with hydroponics... but as for now I'm still learning haha.

Thanks!

TheWeedMan
TheWeedMan

@BigBadLion, thanks bro! COBs are great ! I haven’t had any heat issues with mine but I’m running 10COBs @ 50w each in a 4x4x7 tent. What about you?

It’s all practice man! If you are just learning to grow it will take a few runs before you start to get good ! I’m still learning as I go too!

I’m using Coco Coir as my soiless mix so I flushed for about 5-7days and the buds came out great :+1::skin-tone-2:

here is a nice site in USA out of Nevada...I dont know if you are in USA I was able to get FastBuds beans in under a week...they had a 10th anniversary sale 5+5 deal so I got 10 GSC 10 Zkittlez 10 Fastberry & 10 Tangi Matic…..not bad for $200.... it "dankseed.store" it will load if your browser says it cant go to the page refresh it....yeah I am in the basement also...as well the furnace is there so that is producing some CO2 itself just like the gas burner co2 generators....on amazon for $130 after shipping you can get a 20lb tank... Mr Dr. is giving my needed recommendation so I will be legal come June...as the law allows you to grow with the application sent in and a doctors recommendation...thats good for a year...I will also get a Reverse Osmosis system that should supply all my water....they are adding hydrated lime to the local water system here....NOT GOOD FOR PLANTS...its like 10.0 ph water...but I have it all coming together...about $500 left in total products...will put me right about $1100 total with $200 in genetics 40 beans....that will be 3 1800w LED's 2 450w LED for side lighting total real power draw about 8-900w....should be nice THE ROSE DID AWESOME...actually grew better under the 450w $70 LED's then it is outside.....wish me luck...im wanting to get this going now...but I can give it another month and a half...:+1: By the way CONGRATS ON THE AWARD....told you it was one of the best diaries I could find....

Wilson_McNugget
Wilson_McNugget

@TheWeedMan, yeah I am getting ready to get popping very soon....trying to decide on a Fox Farms Happy Frog and have it on coast for the first few weeks...or I was thinking Coco like my first choice maybe even go with the amended Bush Doctor Coco Loco...but stat the seedlings in a pocket of something not so hot so I dont burn them in their first couple weeks....what do you think??? I dont want to make my own the un-pressed coco is better from my understanding...I could go just the non amended coco then use the cal-mag rapid rooter Micro Grow Bloom modified Lucas formula....WHAT DO YOU THINK? I want to get a head stash before I start playing around with different techniques.....I can bake a cake if I want to...so feeding is more of getting to not how to do it....any suggestions would be appreciated...will keep looking your grow up...thanks again for a lot of great information….
