Growing it

Hard

Resistance

Strong

****The Doc! Dr. Grinspoon is a strain named in honor of the Harvard professor and cannabis advocate,Dr.Lester Grinspoon,bred by Barneys farm ,which is a absoulte delight for the weed connoisseurs all over the world,i dont even know where to start..
As i've looked back into it ,it was a damn long run,almost 6 months! WOWIE ! she went 169 days ,with 99 days of flower.
Now this strain is well known to be a difficult strain to grow so i can try to point out one or two things about whats making her grow really confusing to some people

***********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
--one thing i've noticed is the amount of pistils this strain is shooting out at the end of flower,yeah that means she can pack more weight but still

--growing leafs too and the buds getting all stretchy and foxtailed can make people confused,some twisted growth here and there,mutated buds or wierd shape "heirloom" plant look,it's a heriloom sativa landrace strain in the end so expect the heriloom look on buds,(even saw one guy on youtube flowering her more than about 140 days or smt,she was still growing and growing ) it's not re-vegging or other stuff,its pure psychedelic DR GRINSPOON BALLS !

--lots of pistils which aren't darkened but curled in ,don't expect all pistils to be darkened by your harvest time ,it's a known thing for some long flowering sativas to still have white pistils at the end ,well if you look a bit closely those are more with a lime vibrant tint of color to them :sunglasses:
The best thing is to look upon trichomes on this one to figure out the right time to harvest,or to get a good indication as in a aproximate time when your harvest window opens ,because what i've mentioned above is tricky so just gotta get the zoom in on those buds and see those nice mushroomy cristal heads :heart_eyes: **Note** not all long flowering sativa strains can get amber trichomes,so try to harvest when more then 90% seem milky,for a max potency high!
**********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

About how she grows and what she likes is not over feeding her but trying to maintaing a good balance to not get into deficiencies at end of flower,so you have to time right when you stop giving her nutes,dosages as well.
This strain takes alot of stress and like LST in particular,responds well with topping too and definetly loves a scrog net with some lollypopping ,i've definetly made a mistake here and there,just was lucky enough to not get her into deficiencies.I think i overdid it a bit on the Nitrogen side but it kinda went out fast after around 20 days of clear water.
The buds were washed in baking soda and hanged upside down for 8 days ,i decided to trim as the drying goes along,so i had alot of work up ahead,got alot of trimms and will do some brownies before xmas :innocent::heart_eyes: so that's a YES for me !

I honeslty admit i've pinched a bud here and there for smoking,inspection all in the name of science :innocent::sweat_smile: well i took only popcorn nugs off so not a big loss,so nothing to see here ,move along :muscle:
The flowering cycle is definetly crazy or how i prefered calling it "rabbid" right after she stops streching ,growth slows down a little and after 2-3 weeks she starts on growing again,but she doesn't follow a strict flowering rule like all the other plants i've grown,she starts putting up trichomes before adding on weight,then she starts adding on some weight and starts streching a bit more,then bulking up and shooting more hairs.period.repeat :astonished: **mind fuck** but still trichomes are one of the primary things too look at harvest,on buds,not leafs,not inner calyxes :muscle:

**********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Love how she smokes and smells,an aroma that purely makes a mouthwatering feeling at the beggining but leaves you with a desert like mouth afterwards:wink::sweat_smile: when i grind up some of it,the smell covers the whole room ,it's danky citric,sometimes limey,sometimes orangy,with lovely hints of gas ,just crazy ! the lower buds smell more earthy and the topper are more inclined to gasy,citric smell,the taste is like the smell! mouthwatering,but definetly need alot of water next to it.
The high is a powerful sometimes mind blowing experience,depends on how much you smoke and from what,i prefer joints ,good ol' J ,so i've been looking for like 20 minutes around my room but when i realised what i was looking for was the remote to the tv i was a bit shocked,this has never happened to me before :sweat_smile: i've got the exact similar happenings from 2 friends of mine which i've gifted a bit of The Doc ,you can deeply focus on it,do stuff,but i do not advise to plan on working,doing hardcore activities,the high is long lasting and you will often be blown away and fall asleep from smoking too much,or be high as a kite with a dry mouth all day:smile: but it all depends on how much you smoke,anyways one simple word can describe this strain

DIVINE,why? honestly it's a gift from God,it's one of those rare strains which connects with you and makes you function better after experiencing it,anyone who growed this strain knows what im talking about!

got 156 dry without actualy having a chance to put the first cola colected on the scaler so i put an extra 10 g for the first harvested cola

I WANT TO THANK @BARNEYS FOR SPONSORING THIS GROW @GREEN_BUZZ_LIQUIDS AS WELL !

Grow Questions
BlackListed week 4 started grow question 2 years ago
curious about one thing,should i top 5 times to get 32 colas during main line and go with a SCROG net? sativas tend to have sidegrowth more than indicas? or should i just go 3 toppings only to get 8 even colas ?

@Mr_PoppinBuds Hi there well considering Dr grinspoon takes forever to finish you may as well get the most return from your time and energy used and go for as many colas as you can get
Keep in mind this strain will stretch like crazy once you flip to 12/12 so maybe less veg time may help Hope I answered your question and Good luck

Yo Yo Yo fellow growers ! i'm a bit confused as if my girl will go with the 90-95 flowering days which the website shows?

Hello my friend
Your plant is so beautiful what work you did well! The plants often exceed what the different bribeers promise. Sometimes a plant is harvested 10 or 15 days after another plant of the same variety planted at the same time.
We must only trust the maturation of your trichomes (30% amber) do not forget to rinse your plant 10 days before.
May the strength be with you :muscle:
BlackListed week 23 started grow question 1 year ago
hey growmies ! any ideas on how much longer ? i've gone to switch to a 11-13 ,10-14,8-16 flower schedule in the end ,i know thats a good thing with long flowering landraces ,i've read a bit about this and if they have bananas popping out thats a sign that she is ready soon ? :muscle:

hey man looks ready anytime really, hard to say without a 40x magnification on the trichomes, but you know best. Now would probably be a good time to start a three week plain water flush with no run off (until the chop) , so three weeks left for a more "high" type of weed and anything much more than that will lean towards the body high type of smoke. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
