Let's celebrate! @Tenacious_Trichomes is finally a MASTER GROWER! He's been here with us for ages! He is such an inspiration, a true celebrity of the site! Do not forget to leave a couple of lines in his honour in the comments section bellow. Enjoy the interview!
Q: Hey Tenacious_Trichomes, congrats! I personally thought you'd be the 2nd or 3rd Master Grower on the site :) What took you so long?
A: Haha I was on a roll for a little while there but then school ended and I couldn't spend as much time on GD as I would have liked to. Entertaining the kiddos became the priority over here...but I finally made it!! Slow and steady wins the race....right?!? I'm slowly getting back on the site and looking forward to posting some more journals up for everyone.
Q: You are here on GrowDiaries since a while now! How did you find out about us in the first place?
A: I first started seeing posts on IG which peaked my interest. I was following a few growers who were part of the community so I decided to check it out for myself. I liked the idea of everyone being able to see exactly, from seed pop to chop, how to harvest great quality cannabis. So I decided to join myself. I learned what I know from other experienced growers and a walk through would have been beneficial for me....so may as well pass on what I've learned.
Q: Where are you from? What do you do in real life? Do you have a job? Tell us about yourself. What are your hobbies besides growing? Got pets?
A: Well, I'm from Canada. I Work as a laborer for the city which helps me stay outside often and do a little bit of everything. I'm 34, married with two children. Have a sweet little boxer who is 2 years old. My boys are still quite young so I'm always entertaining and trying to keep things in order!! I love to play sports and obviously I love to garden. I love spending time with the rest of my family as well! (other siblings and parents etc....gatherings are always fun!)
Q: Did you receive all the DOM prizes? All good?
A: Yup, received all my prizes and am stoked to be receiving some sweet gear and nutrients to test out!! All for doing what I absolutely enjoy doing!! Just waiting on a package from Biobiz which had some customs issues (pesky customs agents) and one package from Spain. Have to be patient in this hobby...
Q: Who are the growers who you look up to here?
A: I have always loved Tang's pictures and that's who got me striving for monster autos. Knowing that it could be done (seeing the pictures) lit a fire under my behind to say the least.
Q: Why do you grow weed? When did you start?
A: I grow cannabis for my PTSD. My major symptoms are severe anxiety and for my insomnia...depression also pops in here and there as well. I was paying for my cannabis from licensed producers when I was first diagnosed and was paying upwards of $500 per month! I decided to start to produce my own medicine to help cut some of the costs down. That was for indoor, which I started doing in jan of 2015. I occasionally grew a few outdoor plants when I could afford to look after them and be there to harvest them when they were ready.
Q: Do you ever buy weed? Do you sell it? What's a fair price per gram in your opinion?
A: I do buy my cannabis when I am running low for some odd reason. I don't sell any as I would hate to lose my license over something silly like that!! A fair price for cannabis is hard to say...id say around $6-$7 per gram would be about the fair market. I've definitely paid more than that tho...
Q: How do you smoke your weed?
A: About 90% of the time I smoke out of a glass bong. Quick, efficient and not as noticeable (smell wise). The other times are either a joint or dabs.
Q: What was your favorite grow ever? Is there a Diary for it?
A: I really enjoyed the 3 Bears OG by Mephisto pulling in some decent weight as well! And the flowers had such a great flavor. There is a diary for that one....The other was a THC Bomb (photo) that I grew for my second plant ever pulling in some amazingly potent meds!! I'd recommend both of those by the way...
Q: Anything else you'd like to add?
A: Just keep doing what you guys have been doing. You are helping lots of growers see how and exactly what to do to produce quality cannabis. You are providing a great tool for new growers learning and compensating experienced growers to share their knowledge. Great idea gentlemen!! Keep up the amazing work!!
Thanks a lot, Ten! We are so glad to have you here with us! Keep up the amazing work! We are all waiting for more and more wonderful Diaries to come. Love to your Family!
