yes, I hear you on that one.....cost over runs...lol
im afraid to know what ive actually spent in the past few months
getting my grow set up....going on
ive bought seeds, 15 in a pack....about $100 CAN
from swami....I wanted to go with a distinctive "cherry" pheno
so I selected cherry bomb ...original mr. greengenes, from swami
out of 15 seeds germinated, I had 5 grow,
3 of which turned out to be male, and had to be destroyed
so that left me with 2 plants female (they are doing good-still veg. stage)....but still only 2 plants...
ive built a custom metal rack system for lighting....at my work place (im welder so that was handy)...
then built a custom cabinet to enclose said metal rack....
the cabinet cost me about $250 in materials, lined with (mylar -$50)....bought a clone system,
2 sets grow lights (fluorescence bulbs - $250) dirt, pots, nutrients, clone dip....ect ect...
I think im at least $700 , - 2 plants
however, most of its intial set up costs
I fully intend to process into high thc, resin oil...tasty
I prefer a thick viscosity myself, thicker the better
my end product will more then likely be a light reddish brown
not red, but will have cherry phenos -terps
my next experiment grow, will be the pakistan citral kush for sure, definitely interested in that one.....
google that bud, and look at the colors at maturity...purple-red
and the one after that will be, the Lebanese Red landrace
don't know where I can source that yet, but im at least a year away from that...
at the same time im also working on uncovering red oil recipes, which I have 2 so far....
so im hitting it from both ends...recipe and material (weed)
also, the stuff you can buy at dispensaries today they call cherry oil....is bullshit, pure bullshit -not even close
I had real authentic cherry oil, late 70s a couple times...so I know first hand... they call it cherry oil, because of its reddish tinge
this is likely due to winterizing honey oil...so basically its just honey oil, winterized....has absolutely nothing to do with cherry oil
cherry oil of the late 70s-early 80s.....was devine
expensive, but delicious, tasted like cherries, smelt like it tasted when burned, clean, great euphoric high....and red -yes red
it was called cherry oil because of the way it taste and smelt
it actually smelt like cherries when you burned it
it was on the scene for a short while, then all of a sudden gone
never to be seen or heard of again....we're talking 38 yrs or more
im trying to revive, this lost art
and can do with all the help I can get....
there are some on here that remember that stuff too...
it made appearances in NYC as well as Toronto....so international cities with major international airports -signs of a ring
that ring I believe was BOEL -speculation there
be sure to let us know about the book reference, if you discover anything more related.....thanks so much
