Hello fellow ICMag friends!
I wanted to share my findings from last years curiosities;
Coloring my cannabis🌈
The first attempt was taking a small flower and letting the stem sit in a food color and water mixture of a single color. The flower took up some color but it was rather poorly shown.
I attempted a second time, but scratched the stem to expose the tissue under the rougher “bark” or “hull”. This time the colors were much more vibrant!
The smoking of the colored herb was terrible!!! I used no nutrients on my plants, just good old water, so the flavors were unparalleled. Unfortunately the coloring seemed to have “clogged up” the breathability of the smoke, creating a black ash. Not to mention, who knows what dyes convert to when I’m smoking them!
Visually appealing but I wouldn’t recommend it for smoking. I’m inspired to take some white flowers from variegated cannabis and do a ‘Rainbow Rose’ coloring.
