This book does not want you to break the law nor is it here for that purpose. This book is about cannabis and how it is grown around the world. Even though the contents of this book may show you how to acquire seeds and grow very potent plants, you are responsible for your own actions. We would like to see you grow cannabis however we would not like to see you break the law. I would also like to say that many countries have permitted medical users to grow cannabis in their home.

I recommend this book for those interested in how this stuff works and for those wanting to actually do it themselves. I wasn’t disappointed at all, the book looks nice on my bookshelf and contains lots of useful info.

I really did my research on this and took a long time to decide which book to buy. It was a crapshoot between each book being considered, but I chose this one because it appeared more professional. After reading this entire book and looking through to stages relevant as my cannabis grows, I am left wanting, so I end up looking up things online after all.

The content of the book at first seems good at a glance, but as you start reading, the author states that you are not going to know or understand anything he is talking about, unless you read the ENTIRE book. This was a red flag to me but I did as he instructed. After finishing the book. I am quite displeased. More so that I took too long to read it and cant return it.

Don’t get me wrong, the book has useful information, some of which is more advanced than I care to know at this point (breeding, etc.), but the information that is supposed to be most useful is sporadically placed about and not able to remember because he jumps around a lot and definitely misses things that are important to know. Which brings me to my next point. Not enough pictures to describe the most important things being described, but sure are plenty of random pictures of some good looking bud. with no relevant context of the surrounding text. The diagrams of the plants that do exist are not very good and lack key part identifications being described in the text. Throughout the read I often said, ” I wish there was a diagram that showed this, because I don’t know what he is talking about”.

46 46 THC Cannabis plants produce psychoactive ingredients called cannabinoids. The main ingredient of the cannabinoids that gives the high effect is called – delta 9 THC. All strains vary in THC levels that come in different percentages. Some plants may contain 100% THC but the "levels" of THC may be low. Other plants have only 60% THC, but the "levels" of THC may be very high. A good potent plant will have both levels and quantities very high. Plants produce something called – delta 8 THC. This ingredient is in low levels but does contribute to the high. When we mention THC levels, we are talking about both delta 8 and 9. There are also other ingredients that add to the high such as CBD, CBN, THCV, CBDV, CDC and CBL, but are only very minor compared to THC. The difference between THC levels and THC quantities is that THC levels are genetic. They are not under the influence of the grower. THC quantities on the other hand are. This is to do with bud mass and how much resin can be generated in that bud mass. Some bud may only
