Listen to 🏖️ Bless Coast Seeds Talks Genetic Selection, Intersex Stability, and the Future of Cannabis Breeding

Brand new guest Bless Coast Seeds is on the podcast! Tune in to this awesome breeder feature as we enter Cultivar-gust for a whole month of strain and cultivar discussion! Bless Coast talks about what brought him into the world of seedmaking and breeding. He talks about what he focuses on when making selections, and what traits he likes to look for when he's going through extensive hunts. This leads to a conversation about intersex stability, and how much you can or cannot expect a specific strain of cannabis to hold stable and not throw pollen under any environmental circumstances. The boys also discuss the future of cannabis breeding and genetic variation- leading to a conversation about CRISPR and where gene editing could fit into the cannabis breeding world.

Alexandria Irons is back on the line! Fan favorite Queen of the Sungrown is on the podcast again for an entertaining and informative episode about biochar, microbes, heavy metals and more. Queen and Jordan talk about the presence of heavy metals in cannabis gardens- where we have to be careful of how cannabis can act as a bio accumulator and store these elements that are toxic to humans. Alexandria explains how they are both found naturally in the Earth's crust, and also find their way into our soil through the inputs we use. This leads to a conversation about sea products, and how they are often contaminated with high levels of heavy metal- though not always. Jordan and Queen go on to talk about bio-char, and how useful biochar can be in a system where you're establishing and regenerating soil for long term use. This leads to a broader conversation about creating an in ground permaculture type grow, and how some theorize the Amazon Rainforest may have been a permaculture planted by indigenous peoples local to the area from the past. The duo also discuss their upcoming grow classes, where they cover so much of this info and more, make sure to visit www.growcastpodcast.com/classes to see where we will be next!

🐂 Cannabis Waste Fertilizer, Composting Tips, and JADAM Talk, with OK Calyx

Listen to 🐂 Cannabis Waste Fertilizer, Composting Tips, and JADAM Talk, with OK Calyx

OK Calyx is back for part two of his interview, perfect for Plant Health July! OK Calyx discusses some of his favorite natural farming techniques to employ when growing cannabis and other plants. He starts by talking about composting, and how learning to compost really led him down the road of microbiology forward, closed loop farming. OKC gives us some great composting tips, differentiating between static piles and turned piles. He also talks about some minimal turning experiments he is doing, to see how much he can speed up his compost pile with just a few turns a year. OK Calyx goes on to talk about JADAM farming, and specifically what JADAM means versus KNF. This leads to a conversation about his cannabis specific JLF- a water steeping based fertilizer that is made from cannabis plant waste. OK Calyx talks about why you should never let your plant scraps go to waste, tips as to how you can create a powerful cannabis specific JLF at home, and which input he has kept around steeping the longest.

🍁 Breeder Steve: Colombia's Cannabis Future, Canadian Weed, International Markets and More!

Listen to 🍁 Breeder Steve: Colombia's Cannabis Future, Canadian Weed, International Markets and More!

Sorry for the late upload everyone, hope you had a spectacular 4th of July! As we transition from Cannabis History June into Plant Health July, we have a wonderful guest on the line with our old friend Breeder Steve! Steve has been hard at work down in Colombia of all places, and he updates us on all the incredible cannabis advancement going on south of the border. He talks about breeding strains that work in an equatorial climate, and what traits he is looking to select for in order to have a thriving, replicable cannabis crop. Steve shares how he brought many modern poly-hybridized strains down to Colombia, and how some adapt to the local climate much better and more quickly than others. Steve then takes the conversation back towards his homeland of Canada, and gives us an update on where Canada fits in the global market scene. He also talks about the good old days in Canada, and what the cannabis culture was like when he was growing up.

🐂Blueberry Crosses, OK Cannabis History, and Cannabis and Health, with OK Calyx

Listen to 🐂Blueberry Crosses, OK Cannabis History, and Cannabis and Health, with OK Calyx

First time guest and old school Oklahoma grower OK Calyx joins the podcast for an awesome episode about the history of cannabis in Oklahoma, and how it shifted from a harsh black market state to the current cannabis epicenter. OK Calyx talks about the days of growing underground, how hard the police were on cannabis, and how limited the genetic availability was to cultivators. He also talks about how he had to live in secret with his own medicinal use of cannabis, having transitioned from harmful pharmaceuticals and alcohol to medical cannabis usage. Calyx also discusses the breeding work that he is doing, largely revolving around multiple blueberry crosses- working with both the BlueBerry Muffin and Blueberry TrainMac, among other strains. OK Calyx has a "hard out" as they say in broadcasting- but assures us he will return for a part two soon to discuss more about his KNF work!

💡LED Tech Breakdown, Efficiency Advancements, and The History or Horticultural Lighting, with Dr. Coco

Listen to 💡LED Tech Breakdown, Efficiency Advancements, and The History or Horticultural Lighting, with Dr. Coco

The one and only Dr. Coco from www.cocoforcannabis.com joins the show for an incredible explanation of the history of horticultural lighting. Starting all the way back with incandescent technology in the 1800s, Dr. Coco talks about the lighting advancements that took us into the 1900s like fluorescent technology, and eventually HPS high intensity discharge bulbs. Dr. Coco talks about the development of street light techonology, and how grow lights originated from this tech that was intended to put a lot of light into large areas at night. He also breaks down the exact differences between metal hallide, ceramic metal hallide, high pressure sodium, and more. This of course all culminates in the creation of LED technology which is now far and away the best lighting option- Dr. Coco explains why that is unlikely to change for some time, but also speculates on new lighting tech stating: it's hard to imagine what we can't imagine yet!

🏔️Seattle Cannabis History, New Jinx Strains, and Subcool Stories, with Jinx

Listen to 🏔️Seattle Cannabis History, New Jinx Strains, and Subcool Stories, with Jinx

Friend of the show and creator of Jinxproof Genetics- the one and only Jinx is back on GrowCast! He and Miss Rose are on the line today to discuss some of the their awesome new crosses that are dropping soon, and share some old school stories from their time influencing cannabis history on the west coast. Jinx talks about the Seattle grow scene back in the 1990s, and explains how there really was no way to get quality cannabis seeds or cultivation education. He talks about how some of the most prolific strains that he crossed came from bag seed early on, but how Seattle was still hungry for more genetics. Jinx tells the story of how he met the late Subcool, and the huge impact that these two figures had in the Pacific Northwest cannabis seed scene. Jinx emphasizes the importance of head shops during this time, and talks about how the cheapening of the glass industry is driving out these classic venues, and depriving the next generation of an entire genre of cannabis establishment...

Brand new guest and organic cultivator Harry Rose joins the show for the first time to talk about making hash, and NorCal cannabis history- as well as his place in it. Harry shares stories from the old school Northern California days, giving massive credit to some players in the breeding scene who created some of the world's most renowned CBD strains for medical consumption. This leads to a conversation about his precious cut of Ringo's Rose, which Harry almost lost at one point. Harry also discusses how important organic cultivation is to him as a person and as a grower, emphasizing that although he encourages people to grow in all mediums- microbiologically driven organic cannabis is his hands down favorite product to consume.

The great and powerful Queen of the Sun is back on the show for an episode in Nug Mashin' May that you won't soon forget! Alexandria updates us on all her recent exploits, and the big move from her old farm to her new spot. She talks about some of the hash processing that she has done recently, and speaks on the idea that processing trim becomes a massive undertaking in and of itself when you get to a point of true large scale production. This leads into a conversation about easy ways to process non flower plant material- from a simple alcohol extraction, to a bubble hash process, or even throwing your material right into the compost pile. Alex gives some best practices on making bubble hash, and shares her NorCal rooted strategy. Alexandria also discusses some of her favorite strains that she has produced for hash washing, shouting out such NorCal classics as Jilly Bean and work by the great Purple Caper. Queen of the Sun and Jordan wrap the show by talking about their "upcoming" tour of classes around the country- which may actually already be in the works as we speak...

Nik talks about his extensive background in a variety industries in the fields of chemistry and science, and what led him to eventually study agriculture and microbiology full time. He talks about carbon forward nutrition, and the difference between loading the atmosphere with C02 versus loading the root zone with supplemented carbon. This leads to a conversation about carbon and terpene production within cannabis trichomes, with Nik emphasizing that since so much of desirable compounds are made of carbon that we should absolutely be supplementing more carbon into the rhizosphere. Nik talks about the effect of this type of farming on the end product, and discusses the best ways to grow for hash and rosin production.

*Apologies for rough audio, we are rebuilding the studio as we speak- we will be back to our normal workflow shortly!*

Not only do we have Nathan from Red Scare Seed Co back on the line, but we also have his amazing partner Kendall from Fractile Ridge Farms on the show! Today Nathan and Kendall are here to discuss how medicinal cannabis saved their lives, and the work they are doing in both breeding and medicinal product production. Kendall talks about her personal health journey, which brought her to a place where she would study and master the art of making medicinal cannabis tinctures and salves. She discusses some of the more unique strategies she employs to create these products, and also briefly discusses some of the other most effective plant medicines that she employs. Nathan and Kendall also discuss afghan cannabis lineage, and they express just how special the afghan lines are to them when it comes to hunting and finding the true pain relieving medicine that they need. The conversation turns to self care and avoiding burnout before the trio wrap the show with a discussion about the upcoming cultivator's cup...

🧑‍🌾Cannabis Labor, Large Scale Cultivation Challenges, Grow Lights, and More, with Dr. MJ Coco

Listen to 🧑‍🌾Cannabis Labor, Large Scale Cultivation Challenges, Grow Lights, and More, with Dr. MJ Coco

*This episode dropped 4/11/22, there was a distribution issue that has since been resolved!*

The one and only Dr. MJ Coco from www.cocoforcannabis.com swings by the podcast for another informative episode just in time for Educational April! Today the good doctor is educating us on the challenges of scaling up a cannabis grow. The challenges that a gardener faces when scaling up from a small home tent grow to a large scale facility are numerous and complex. Dr. Coco dives deep into maybe the biggest difference: labor. This leads to a huge conversation about agricultural labor, and how the cannabis industry tends to operate when it comes to setting up grows and implementing folks to run them. The boys also talks about materials, and the cost differences in certain grow strategies- like replacing your grow medium, or switching nutrient lines. Dr. Coco also, of course, discusses grow lights- focusing on the future of the technology and what we can expect from light manufacturers in the coming years...

The one and only Matthew Gates from Zenthanol consulting is back on GrowCast to drop some serious knowledge! Today Matthew talks about the wide range of relationships between pest, insect, and microbe. He goes on to discuss the different types of relationship, some desirable to the gardener, while others are detrimental. This leads to a conversation about insects who aren't considered pests, but can often become problems if their population gets out of control or the ecosystem becomes unbalanced. Matthew also extrapolates on the cannabis plant's natural defense systems, and how we should be looking at pest dispersal. Matthew wraps up the show by talking about the relationship between brix levels and pest resistance, while also discussing the canopy aphids ability to digest high levels of sugar without any harm being done to them- despite a common misconception that their digestive systems cannot handle those levels of sugar...

He goes on to discuss some of the most popular South African strains, such as those who were proliferated like Durban Poison, but also some of the nearby landrace strains from places like Malawi and others. He also shares the fable of the Rooibaard or "Redbeard" strain local to Southern Africa, but insists that it's hard to find the authentic, true Rooibaard genetics. Hugo also dives into how he deals with the wicked South African climate, from whippping winds to humid sea air- and he also reveals the types of pests he battles in SA, which funnily enough are the same cannabis pests we deal with worldwide!

Listen to 🏙️❄️Chicago Growing, Harsh Winters, Vegging Outdoors, and More, with Chitown Cannachica (Worldwide December)

We continue our Worldwide December quest to speak to growers from around the globe- this time we're headed back to the heart of the USA to speak with Chitown Cannachica, who has been growing in the windy city for several years now. Cannachica talks about her journey into growing medicine for a family member, and how she deals with the BS Illinois cultivation guidelines. She also discusses the huge climate swings that occur in the Midwest, from bone dry sub zero winter temperatures, to muggy and humid 90 degree summer days. This leads to a conversation about having TWO WAY climate control, and how important that is for grows in regions with four seasons. Cannachica also shares an interesting strategy of vegging plants outside in the Midwest summer, and bringing them in for the flowers stage. Cannachica also shares some strain and grow gear reviews to round out the program.

Listen to 🇮🇪 Irish Cannabis Cultivation, European Cannabis Legislation, Activism, and More, with Martin Condon (Worldwide December)

We're kicking off worldwide December with an EPIC episode from across the pond! Fervent cannabis activist and host of Martin's World Podcast Martin Condon joins the program for an in depth exploration of Irish cannabis cultivation in their unique climate, growing laws in Ireland and the EU as a whole, plus much more. Martin talks about battling the misty marshy Irish climate, and which regions became notable for cannabis cultivation. He also discusses some of the strains that the old heads in Ireland were working with, and his previous experience growing. The conversation turns towards activism and Martin gives several inspiring accounts of activism by himself and some of his European peers, which has finally put the legislators in a position to confront their atrocious medical program.

*Episode correction! Orca is not JUST mycorrhizae, as it also has a few beneficial bacteria in the blend as well*

Rhizo Rich, the man with the plan, is back again! Today he gives us a rundown of all the breeding work he's been doing with GrowCast Seed Co, including the upcoming Peachquake line. Jordan and Rhizo break down some of their favorite new strains in Rich's garden, including the Peach Maraschino by Lovin' and Truffle Cake by In House. The conversation then turns towards popular microbial inputs, and the guys break down what you're getting with many of these microbe products, and where redundancies may lie. Jordan also talks about non cannabis facing brands, and how cannabis farmers can often save money by going to big ag sources for the same active ingredients. The guys also reveal the long awaited myco brand that a previous guest was too polite to mention 😉

A slight departure from Crobe-vember (don't forget pests are an important pathogen vector to address too!) with a beloved guest; Marybeth Sanchez returns to the podcast to discuss an area of her expertise that we haven't visited in a while- integrated pest management. MBS discusses the life cycles of the most common insect pests we face in the garden, and the importance of understanding how they breed. The fungus gnat (born pregnant) requires a different approach to treatment than, say, the spider mite, where sprays can be more effective in halting the entire pest cycle. This leads to a conversation about where pests like to congregate and reproduce, and how proper treatment relies upon understanding the movement patterns of insect pests as well. MBS also discusses general IPM strategies, her new toy The Microbiometer, and more...

Purple Stems, Ag Studies, and Natural Cultivation vs Modified Grow Setups, with Brandon Rust

Listen to Purple Stems, Ag Studies, and Natural Cultivation vs Modified Grow Setups, with Brandon Rust

Creator of Black Label Organics and prolific breeder Brandon Rust is back on the podcast! Tune in today to hear him talk about a variety of fascinating grow subjects- Brandon shares his thoughts on a very common issue in the cannabis cultivation world: purple streaking in stems. He talks about how many growers attribute this coloration to "simply genetics" when in actuality Brandon claims it comes from a cation imbalance in the soil (usually due to a high uptake of a specific mineral) that can be remedied to reverse the coloring. The conversation turns towards cultivation research studies, and Brandon talks about the difference between large scale agricultural setups (which are where the majority of research is done) and the types of small scale grows in modified growing mediums like cannabis cultivators frequently operate- this may lead to a disconnect between the research and the actual function of practices in our own grow tents!

Breeder Etiquette, Big Ag Beaucoup Bucks, and Other Moral Quandries, with Rhizo Rich

Listen to Breeder Etiquette, Big Ag Beaucoup Bucks, and Other Moral Quandries, with Rhizo Rich

Long time expert organic cultivator, and GrowCast Team Member Rhizo Rich is back for another GrowCast episode! Today's show is unique in that Jordan and Rich explore some of the most notorious "gray areas" of the cannabis community, from common etiquette between cannabis breeders, to how many growers view the act of profiting off of cannabis... Today's show is all about examining the customs and idiosyncrasies of the cannabis universe, and how they got to be that way. Rhizo Rich and Jordan touch on the topic of breeders F2ing other people's work, and wonder if it's more about the reasoning and intention behind the creation of the strain, rather than the act itself. They also discuss the lack of regulation and legislation around genetics, and speculate as to whether that would even be beneficial at all to the cannabis industry as a whole.

Antagonistic Nutrients, Additional Input Reviews, and More, with Brandon Rust

Listen to Antagonistic Nutrients, Additional Input Reviews, and More, with Brandon Rust

Brandon Rust said he'd be back- and here he is! The prolific Oklahoma breeder and cultivator (check out Black Label Organics) picks up right where he left off as he continues to explore and review common organic nutrient inputs. Brandon extrapolates on the input azomite, and explains why he doesn't include such a broad spectrum nutrient in his garden. This leads to a conversation about antagonistic nutrients, and how adding more of one input can end up locking out a very important element like phosphorous for instance. The conversation turns towards contaminants, and Brandon gives his thoughts on things like heavy metals, where they come from, how cannabis accumulates them, and how to tie them up and make them inert in your own soil. Jordan and Brandon also discuss microplastics, and the fairly new discoveries of plastic consuming microbes.

Listen to Heavy Metals in Inputs, Soil Remediation, and More, with Marybeth Sanchez

Show favorite and Queen of the GrowCast Grower's Chat Marybeth Sanchez returns to the podcast for a heavy metal exploration!

Listen to Cultivation Techniques, Plant Training, and Old School Cannabis, with Marybeth Sanchez

GrowCast Team Member and IPM specialist Marybeth Sanchez returns to the podcast for an episode detailing her cannabis growing style! Marybeth is a regenerative agriculture and pest specialist, but today's show is about her favorite cannabis cultivation techniques. She discusses her recent foray into autoflowers, and discusses her recent run with Mandalorian Genetics' Anvil. The conversation turns towards her favorite method of plant training, and Marybeth talks about the old school gardener training mentality she still utilizes today. She also makes an interesting observation regarding genetics and specifically the size of seeds from modern breeders- remarking that old school "brick weed" tended to carry the biggest fattest seeds you'll find. Marybeth wraps up the show by talking about her specific local; The Emerald Triangle, and how it has changed and evolved over the years- largely due to the rapidly expanding cannabis cultivation industry.

Listen to DLI (Daily Light Integral), Autos vs Photos, and Trichome Agitation, with Dr. Coco

Friend of the show and creator of www.cocoforcannabis.com Dr. Coco is back on the show to discuss a whole host of grow topics! The conversation begins by talking about autoflowers and photoperiods, the differences in how they're grown, and what the additional light time of autoflowering plants could entail. This leads to conversation about how much light a plant can handle without damaging the plant, which transitions the conversation towards the commonly misunderstood analytic know as DLI, or daily light integral. Dr. Coco explains when DLI is useful to measure and track, when it's not, and how people are misusing the term within the cannabis space. Jordan then poses an interesting observation to Dr. Coco regarding the maturation of trichomes when the buds are being agitated- whether by frequent trichome scoping, hard wind, or friction of a tent wall.

GrowCast Team Member Rhizo Rich returns to the podcast for a final update about the supersoil challenge he conducted where the same cut was grown out in 9 different organic "water only" style soils. Rich updates us on the final end products of the challenge, and which differences he saw in their quality, yield, and more. The conversation then turns to a recent GrowCast discussion on organic versus synthetic products, and Rhizo Rich gives his opinion as a 14 year grower in both systems.

Marybeth also talks about her work in the Slack chat, and all the funs things that GrowCast has planned for 2021!

Reusing Coco, Organic vs Synethic, Wet Trim vs Dry Trim, and More, with Doctor Coco

Listen to Reusing Coco, Organic vs Synethic, Wet Trim vs Dry Trim, and More, with Doctor Coco

Friend of the show Doctor Coco is back for an in depth grow chat- this time the doctor starts off with a discussion about coco; specifically how to properly reuse it. He answers a question about reusing amended coco, and extrapolates on the idea that not all amendments should be treated the same- citing that some people consider coco with perlite to be amended coco. He also talks about washing coco indoors, and brings up the possibility of harming your home plumbing with coco residue. Jordan and Coco then get into a discussion about why people choose to grow organic over synthetic, and whether or not there is a discernible difference in the end product. Coco emphasizes that he encourages responsible organic gardening for a multitude of other reasons- and Jordan points out how growers should be able to hold these different opinions and still get along as friends. The guys wrap up the show by talking about wet trimming versus dry trimming, teasing a more in depth exploration in a future episode!
