a question about wide-spread hemp...

will hemp farming endanger cannabis growing? given the distance pollen can travel on the wind, is this going to become a threat to cross-pollinate weed meant for smoking? how difficult will it be to grow outdoors/in greenhouses etc? will HEPA filters adequately protect our desperate for love girls? inquiring minds (mostly me, lol) want honest opinions...

HEPA filters are rated to block smaller particles than cannabis pollen so that will keep em safe. Its probably a good idea in general to be honest.

Whilst its unlikely the pollen will travel for much more than a few hundred yards before becoming denatured it could travel miles, some estimates for industrial hemp say up to 3-7 miles, but i doubt it a bit.

It's an issue. I can see angry feuds developing around pollination. Courts will have to assign liability. Possibly new laws or regulations will be needed.

It could end up something like the recent case of the organic farmer Steve Marsh, who took a neighbouring farmer, Mr Baxter, who was using GM crops, to court for wind contamination of his organic crops, and losing his organic certification. The court ruled against the organic farmer with Monsanto bankrolling the GM farmer.
""""""""""The court found neighbour Michael Baxter had not acted negligently and could not be held responsible just for growing a GM crop in a conventional way. It also awarded Mr Baxter costs.""""""""""

YES, Hemp farming poses a huge problem for cannabis farmers/growers due to cross contamination from pollen.

I've seen many cases where cannabis growers have had their crops compromised by neighboring fields of hemp. Cannabis eats the pollen up and becomes inundated with seeds making for a shitty yield for cannabis consumption purposes.

It is my opinion that hemp growing and commercial growers will take the same stance as monsanto and the case mentioned above proves this point very clearly.

The powers that be DO NOT want us to be independent of their control and they damn well know that... A) cannabis does more for the ill folks of this world than synthesized pharmaceuticals do and B) hemp will destroy the ability to grow drug type cannabis outdoors in the same areas.

I've successfully protected my cannabis crops from pollination using a carbon scrubber, HOWEVER, I was not being subjected to acres of pollen producing hemp/cannabis. A HEPA filtration system for your grow space will provide a measure of control from pollination but it must be remembered that... when the pollen is flying, everything, including & especially your clothing & growing tools, could be pollen transferring vehicles, potentially contaminating your indoor/greenhouse grows.

You can still get 5% hash oil yield or so out of fully seeded bud and the buds weight a lot more because of those seeds so its not impossible to grow drug type cannabis outdoors in the same areas, but it is more work for less yield. Those worthless seeds are all edible and nutritious too.

It may not be as big of a deal if the hemp field gets harvested by mid August. The flowers will be small still, and there wouldn't be as much seed. After living though this oppressive prohibition, I won't complain at all. Go out and grow deep in the woods. There won't be any hemp pollen there. Hills can keep pollen count down too. It will be interesting!


Could always do spring flowering light deprivation gardens to avoid the hemp pollen in the summer.

it might prove to be that autoflowering varieties may be valuable in this scenario. start them so they will finish in July outdoors, thus avoiding hemp pollen...hell, plant them among hemp plants, lol. that would fuck with aerial searches in locales where LEO still gave a shit.

Oh yeah, autoflower plants would be an asset in a hemp growing region. Hmmm. Breeders take notes! There will be a lot of need for Autoflowering plants in the future I bet.

Where I live in the midwest wild hemp can be found growing in small patches by creeks and rivers and I even found some by a lake next to railroad tracks. It usually grows a bit away from the water source where nettles and thorn/berry bushes grow. It also grows in irrigation ditches on farmland if the ditches keep moisture well. I found a lot looking for spots to grow in my younger days. It grows where morning sun is strong in my observations but could be shaded by noon for the rest of the day. They also sex fast and throw pollen usually by mid july. I found a lot in Indiana.
