Guide To The Best Marijuana Growing Book

The Best Cannabis Growing Book

Ty Palmer

When we first set out to grow cannabis, we thought the rewards would come at harvest time. Truth is, the joy of growing itself soon catches hold. The simple pleasures began with the first reading of the cannabis growing book, and continued beyond harvest into the time for drying and curing. Being in control of the decisions which ensure clean cannabis in our head stash makes it worth every bit of effort.

Marijuana Horticulture: Cannabis Bible

Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower's Bible

This fifth edition cannabis growing book has been called the very best since its original publication in 1983. The latest edition offers updated information and brilliantly lit photographs of cannabis plants in various stages of growth.  Ever since that initial publication date, author Jorge Cervantes has roamed the grows of the world educating all of us about the wonders of growing fantastic marijuana. Essential reading, useful for indoor and outdoor grows. A clear favorite for our advisors.
