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 of working with the soil, the nutrients, the sun, and the lights are all worth celebrating, along with the dried and cured buds. 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.  Ever since then, 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 Luminary Advisors.
