About the Authors
We have been outdoor growers since 1980 and have had relatively small yearly harvests every year since l983. We have grown Indica and Sativa strains and also hybrids (mixing the two together). Our horticulture has taken place largely in fields in New York and New Jersey. The goal of this paper is to allow others to produce their own, and to reduce the amount of marijuana traded on the street. As more individuals become divorced from having to sell and purchase fine erb, then we as consumers will become self- sufficient and will also be able to minimize the risk of being caught. Unfortunately, the ignorant powers that be continue to persecute marijuana smokers for political reasons. We should take responsibility for our habits and grow for our own consumption thereby eliminating the “buy and sell game”. Although the marijuana trade is not known for attracting ruthless people, it none the less is a “black market” activity that many wish to avoid.
Some people may read this paper with the hope that they can grow acres of reefer that will bring them riches. Unfortunately the gold rush as it pertains to weed has come and gone. The police confiscate patches of pot annually through the use of aerial infrared photography, and large plots are spotted much more frequently than small plots. This guide is not designed to be the erb growers bible, but to provide easy steps on how to cultivate small amounts of marijuana for personal consumption. There are people who know more about growing weed than we do, but the marijuana growing literature still lacks a brief explanation of how to produce outdoor kind bud in easy steps. Our hope is that this paper can serve that purpose.
We want to thank the many people who helped us acquire skill in this realm (our assumption is that they want to remain anonymous). Any error or omission is our doing and we take full responsibility.

HOW TO GROW MARIJUANA OUTDOORS
Contrary to popular belief, marijuana grows well in many place on the North American continent. It will flourish even if the temperature does not raise above 75 degrees.
Its takes work but grow weed the correct way and the harvest will be splendid.
The marijuana plants do need a minimum of eight hours of sunlight per day and should be planted in late April/early May, BUT DEFINITELY, after the last frost of the year.
WELCOME – Cannabis Growing Guide
Welcome to WeedFarmer’s Cannabis Growing Guide!
There are few things in life as good as your own weed, grown by yourself at home out in the garden and indoors in pots…
Most people think of gardens as a seasonal, yearly project, but it is actually less time consuming and more rewarding to keep the garden going year round. If one were to attempt to grow year round, indoor gardening techniques will be needed at least during winter to keep the garden producing. You will have herb fresh at all times, there is no worry of mass storage thru the winter and spring, it requires less space, and once established, requires only minimal attention every week to keep it producing at optimal levels.
The best part of being a gardener is it connects you to the earth. It connects you with nature, and is spiritually enriching. Try giving your plants energy by beaming good thoughts and energy at them every time you visit them. I find this helps me as much as it helps them; my plants seem to respond to it favorably.
Growing Marijuana Outdoors
Tom, an American, is one of the most successful growers I have ever interviewed. His methods are extremely simple and easy. He is a smart, lazy man who pays attention to Mother Nature. Tom’s complete and simple understanding of plant growth makes him a very successful guerilla grower. These simple concepts are key to assimilating guerilla growing.
Wild marijuana plants are vigorous, aggressive, competitive weeds. Some varieties have a large root system which helps them survive moisture stress and poor soil. Plants spaced at least 10 feet apart will grow to a height of 3 – 5 feet in dry climates. Cannabis is a survivor. Given control of a growing area of 4 to 12 square feet, in poor soil, mature plants will grow to about 5 feet tall with a strong terminal main bud or cola. The yield is relatively heavy considering the amount of cultivation work. Add a little more effort during soil preparation and planting to grow several times more dope. Loosen the soil, amend it a little and throw in a handful of polymers*.
Cover the soil around the plant with a thick layer of natural mulch to attract condensed water and to keep soil moisture from evaporating. Just these simple measures may double the yield. *polymer crystals are small crystals that expand to about 15 times their size when moistened by water. They are added to soil to prolong time between watering.
Sensi Seeds Outdoor Mix
The 25 high-quality seeds in this assortment are a random mix of the five Indica varieties from the Sensi Seeds Outdoor collection – Early Girl, Early Skunk, Ruderalis Skunk, Ruderalis Indica and Guerrilla’s Gusto – all of which can be grown together with great success.
Growers with a good eye for Indica can often identify their favourite breeds soon after the onset of blooming, while first-time cultivators can hone their cannabis-senses and learn lots more through careful observation of the different plants and their subtle variations. The differences in form, flavours and flowering patterns will become more obvious as the outdoor season progresses.
This mix of Indica strains provides outdoor growers with a varied yet complementary range of plants for their garden. Starting a good number of seeds from the Outdoor Mix should result in examples of all five strains. The first signs of bud will be seen on the auto-flowering strains – Ruderalis Indica, then Ruderalis Skunk – which will go on to reach maturity earlier in the season. By the time the auto-flowering plants have been cut down, the other Indica-dominant plants should be in full bloom. Fast and beautiful Early Girl will be approaching harvest a few weeks later, followed by the hardy Guerrilla’s Gusto. As autumn creeps up on summer, the outstanding Early Skunk and will be at the peak of her resin and flower production, making her ready for harvest in October.

Created from mostly original GodBud(Jordan of the Islands) genetics. Our selections were breed for 1 year in a very hot climate and was test grown indoors and outdoors. The best plants that thrived both indoors and outdoors in hot conditions were selected for breeding. Breed for hot climates like southern Spain and southern California.
Short bushy “pure” sativa producing massive buds. Great for guerilla growers. Skunky fruity/taste. Uppy sativa high. Begins flowering when it gets less then 14 hours of light so expect an early start and early finish. Tons of trimming needed with this strain but the large amount of buds easily makes it worth it.

Especially for the guerrilla grower, this strain was originally stabilised outdoors in New Zealand. She’s become something of a legend to the locals in the far-north; an average plant! Extreme mould resistance, and a great sativa smell and you have the perfect outdoor cropper, that with a little bending and stretching will do equally well if not better indoors.
