How to RATE Marijuana Strains and Nutrients Guide


Hey Growers!

As you've probably noticed, we have recently implemented a RATING system of STRAINS and NUTRIENTS to our web.  We now have a 10 and a 5 star evaluation thing going on for Strains and Nutrients products consequently. Here in todays journal we intend to approximately show you how we would like to see you shooting out those rating stars, because it was made for a reason, Growers! This information below is just for your personal consideration, please do not take it as something obligatory. Take it as a guide and enjoy rating all those strains and nutrients, my Growers :)

10 - Perfection

This strain is the best thing I've ever grown in my life. It is absolutely my favorite of all. It always was, and always will be my prime top choice. It almost seems that this particular strain was created by the weed gods and designed specially for me, considering all my preferences. I had absolutely no problems growing it. The plant was beautiful, the size was ideal, the smell and the taste were just supreme, and the harvest was tremendous! Excellence throughout all the aspects.

9 - Awesome

Top level. This strain is so close to being my favorite but it had one minor detail to it that I did not personally like. Still it is definitely in my top chart of strains. I will be growing it again and again and I would surely recommend this strain to the other growers.

8 - Quality

Amazing product. Great quality of genetics. This is the kind of strain that I would definitely recommend to others, even though I had some minor issues that I personally did not like about my plant. Overall, I am more than satisfied with the process and with what it resulted into. Anyone would enjoy growing this strain, in my opinion.

7 - Good

I liked this strain but, as for me, I prefer a different type of genetics. I had some minor problems growing it, but the harvest was pretty good. I would still grow it again in the future. Definitely recommended to all the growers out there. It is a nice strain, just not my style.

6 - Okay

It is just OK, what can I add.  It is somewhere a little above being just a mediocre strain because I still had fun growing it and I pretty much enjoyed the harvest, but there was a little bit of a mess with my grow as well. Those are some nice genetics still, so I would call it an above-average strain. Recommendable.

5 - Whatever

A mediocre strain. It is not such a pain to grow, and the harvest is so so. The plant produced some bud, so thanks for that alone. The whole growing and harvesting thing was not that bad overall but I would actually grow something else next time. Well, I actually might return to growing it in the future, maybe..

4 - Poor

A bummer to grow, I had a lot of problems growing it, and I was pretty upset with what the harvest came down to. However, there was this one little thing I liked about the strain. I wouldn't really recommend it to anybody. Would I purchase this genetics again? Hell no, maybe if I'd get if for free, I'd grow it again.

3 - Bad

Close to a total disappointment. The genetics seem to be alright at the first sight, but growing it was a disaster. The plant was looking weird during the grow and the stuff I've collected from it was a real downer. Definitely wouldn't recommend growing it, even to my ex gf.

2 - Awfulness

How did I even come up with the idea to start growing this? It was surely a bad choice. Completely unsatisfactory. There have to be some problems with the genetics because what I've got here is just so annoying. A waste of time and money. I wouldn't grow this again even if you'd pay me to do so.

1 - Unacceptable (WTF)

What an awful experience! I didn't like ANYTHING about this Strain, even though I tried hard to find at least one little aspect that I enjoyed about it. Well, no, There is absolutely nothing I liked. I will never touch it again. Shame! Genetics company should be closed down, really. 


And with the Nutrients things are little bit more clear. 

5 - Awesome

Great product. I always use it and will continue using it. It has really improved my grow. Thanks to it my plant resulted in being very healthy. My growing experience was that enjoyable all thanks to these Nutrients. Extremely satisfied!

4 - Good

It is a nice brand, but not my favorite. I am glad I was using it anyway.

3 - Average

It is an ok product. I cant truly say if it has enhanced my grow in any way but at least it hasn't destroyed it. I might give it another try some day.

2 - Bad

I do not recommend this brand and I will never be using it again. After feeding my plants with this product they have noticeably worsened.  

1 - Trash

This product almost killed my plants! Stay away!

@rdrunner, Just curious. Why's is that?
I think is the a great idea. You get to see how they respond to different environments! And there for you put your plan into play. I see it ass other growers doing the "experiment" for you, and you learning from their successes and most importantly failures.
Plus why in the world would you buy something with very poor ratings?
Anyway grate job @growdiaries

Well, its hard to evaluate something objectively, since some strain could be the best for me and trash to others. But i guess this is a good way to guide people how to rate.

By the way, would ne nice if the chat icon could be in other position, since in the actual place overlaps with the next photo icon when you read a diary.

I like the idea, but have a small issue. My seeds are going amazing and having a good time becoming big girls. I have seen another grower on Reddit with the exact same strain, same soil (diff ratio), different nutes and different lights. For him, he is having a rough time with the strain.

I agree with the chat icon/tab/button 100%. Would be super cool if it was on the status bar up top that is always visible (on phone). Just not covering image navigation buttons or scroll bars.

Thank you for your suggestion regarding the chat button, @_MiniFarmer_,we will keep it mind. Such feedback really helps us to improve the site, so please if you have any other ideas, do not hesitate to let us know.

What about adding multiple harvest weeks. We need a harvest week, then a week for smoke report and final nug shots. I've seen others do multiple weeks in harvest but I can't seem to get it to work.

@BiggestLittleGrower, multiple harvest weeks is an old feature, we have decided to remove it. You can still observe it in the older Diaries. Such information, as smoke reports and nug shots can be included in the last 'week' box which is harvest. Just take it, as harvest in general, and not a specific week :)

It won't let me harvest my diary as rating each nutrient removes the stars from the previous one !!!!

@GrahamWafer, we will be adding Superthrive to our database so you and other growers could could include these nutrients to your Diaries. Thanks for letting us know!
