Great weed man
I'm growing 1 GDP outdoors up here in the beautiful Emerald Triangle, Humboldt County. She is incredible and gorgeous. She sprouted on Apr 3rd. She and my other girls are growing in Fox Farm Ocean Forest soil. Ive fed her Fox Farm Grow Big, Bush Doctor Kangaroots Root Drench and Bemb`e Sweet & Dandy and Verde. I transplated her into a 10 gal pot last week and today, July 28th, shes 7 ft tall and still(I say still because my PPD's are in week 1 of their flower cycle) in full vegetative growth.
The only reason I give it a 4 is because it couch locked me terribly,
After stumbling onto a couple of old seeds from King Klone, I managed to get one of of the two seeds to sprout in mid June. I grow my cannabis in the sun with only organic fertilizers and no chemical pesticides. Eventually “JoJo” (Beatles?) was planted into a 15 gallon plastic container. This vigorous thick stalked, five foot tall, long node, sativa looking plant, kept me wondering if it was a lady or a dude. Turns out it is a lady, and began to push fat sticky flowers. Having a late start, I think the plant was a bit lacking in its true production potential. I only harvested 6-7 oz. dry by the end of I harvest which was pushed forward because everything was burning up in Northern Calif. Again!!!! Anywho, the plant produced nice thick sticky colas with purple hews on her trichomes. I was pleasantly surprised by the effects. Indica happy/euphoric effects, but not to much to keep me from getting things done. If smoked early in the day it does slow down everything. It has a happy feeling effect that lasts for hours. The CBD pain relief effects are not as great as my Blue Dream buds, but the GDP’s happy feelings go along way with dealing with my arthritis pains. The high is manageable even with a heavy inhalation. With NO paranoia or anxiety! After smoking I find my mind finding pleasant memories. This Nostalgia effect shows up about a half an hour after toking up a bit of a sticky sweet bud. This has now become my last afternoon/dinner time smoke. It helps deal with the lingering tensions of the day and my bothersome ptsd’s. Ok now, this plant was harvested and chopped short, sitting around this fall waiting for me to bust up the root ball. (I usually like them to just naturally quit & fade out.) I had heard about keeping harvested plants going after harvest! I decided to stick this (still pushing small buds) plant under a couple of 100 watt CFLs, with 24 hour light. So sure enough the plant has started to leaf out again. I am now growing “JoJo” indoors over this winter to eventually become a mommy plant to produce some beautiful GDP clones. I have a feeling 2019 is going to need lots of “good feelings” smoke. Stay tuned...
