Hey everyone, I’m an old girl and want to grow as I’m very rural and have a very nice private back garden, but I haven’t got a scooby where to start. I had cancer last year and decided that cannabis is the way to go. Trouble is I don’t smoke 😂 I have eaten it, but that was a trip I wouldn’t want to repeat ...... it was hilarious at the vets the next day when I was still high...... I didn’t actually have a clue what was in the gifted cookies 🙄 Any help would be gratefully received, seed purchase is the first thing obviously 😉

I know it doesn't sound ideal, but taking cannabis medicine as a suppository changes the way it is absorbed by the body. You will fer less of a psychoactive effect, but still get the medicinal properties from the cannabinoids. 

Have you considered growing a strain that is 50/50 CBD and THC? 

The Vault is the best seeds bank, they will have everything you need at a good price and a discount code too. 

Welcome ot Percys Smile I hope you like the place

@macky thank you for your welcome, I’ve got to learn how to use a forum before I learn anything else 🥴 I’ll immerse myself and learn from what the lovely members have written. I guess I’ll have to get my seeds ordered pdq as it must be optimum time for planting now.

@lindylou the forum can be tricky but it's very easy. Start from the forum page and get into some grow diaries and then at the bottom of the page (on mobile) will be the recent threads and discussions so you can see the newest posts. You can also subscribe to a thread that someone starts to keep informed of when its updated. Welcome to Percy's. It's really friendly and full of great growing advice. 

Do better, feel better.

@lindylou if you are seed shopping your first decision is photo period or Autoflower seeds. Your choice depends on your environment and your schedule/patience. Outdoors my preference would be Autoflower because it simplifies things on your first grow but that’s just my thoughts.

@monkeydo thank you, yes I was definitely thinking autoflower. I’ve got plenty of time and patience. Can you or anyone recommend a good seed to start with? I live in a normally quite wet area, will any plants I manage to cultivate need protecting from too much rain?

@lindylou Autoflower is the way to go for your first outdoor run imo. Macky just wrote a thread on outdoor strains for the UK. That is a good place to start. Here’s the link to the article best-strains-for-growing-cannabis-outdoors-in-the-uk/ . A big factor is what effect you desire from the finished product, pain relief, insomnia, depression, muscle spasms, or just to enjoy and reduce your stress level. Are you looking for energy, focus, sedation, laughs, or something different? If you post your preference I’m sure you will get many recommendations on stuff. I don’t grow outdoors but a reliable relatively easy strain is Pineapple Express. It’s a definite hybrid so it is a little of both Indica and Sativa. Hopefully someone who grows outside will read this and give some more tested recommendations based on their experience.

@monkeydo thank you that’s great, I think I need to do much more research about what I really need it for..... pain relief is a good start, I’m high on life and live a very stress free life, but sleep is sometimes something I need help with. Sometimes I need help with my focus too, I think I’m ADD, a bit late in life to realise but hey ho. Thanks also for the link I’ll have a good read. You’ve been so helpful. Really silly quick question and I feel a bit daft asking it, but I had to click on accepting terms on the website suggested for purchasing seeds about sending seeds to countries where it’s illegal to grow it ..... what’s that all about? Am I right in thinking that it’s not illegal to have seeds in the UK, just growing it is naughty 🙄

I feel a bit daft asking it

Never feel daft for asking anything Lindy Smile This is how we learn. 

In the UK you can own seeds legally as souvenirs, but you cant germinate them. Seed banks sell you the seed in the idea that you will not germinate them. So they have a legal disclaimers just to make sure they cant be sued or some thing lol. 

The Vault are a legit seed bank also UK based, used by the members here many many times with no problem, they are brilliant. You wont have any issue buying from them Smile

@lindylou welcome! Great group of folks on here. I have been through Chemo and Radiation for Cancer and found lots or relief in marijuana. Everyone here will be very helpful to you, in fact we will tell you and show you exactly what to do every step of the way. Lots of growers on here have lots of experience with all types of growing, and all different techniques. 

If you are going to grow outside I suggest an auto as well, perfect for the garden. I also suggest an easy strain to grow, like Northern Lights. You’ll be rewarded with great crystally nuggs that really are effective against pain and will help with appetite, etc. 

 

My preferred method is smoking, or vaping. I suggest a quality vaporizer or a nice water bong. You can also press your buds into rosin, which you can vape from a pen.
