Back when I was in high school (1969) I smoked a lot of weed with stems that ripped paper and seeds that exploded. As far as I knew, this was just the way it was. Until a couple of weeks ago I didn't know that 'it's the buds, stupid' and not the leaves that are the parts to be smoked. Fast forward 50 years and I'm now retired with time on my hands and I have decided to grow. I'm just beginning the flowering stage with a few White Widows and learning a LOT. I'm just hanging out here learning from all of you, so thanks.
