Redman - Sour Deezal

Sour DieselStrain: Sour Diesel 

Type: Sativa Hybrid

Origin: Cali Connection

Medium: Hydro

Smell: Earthy, almost a chocolaty smell, very inviting, can’t really find the “skunk” heritage on the sniff test.

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel

Burn: Clean, thick and flavorful inhale.

Taste: Rich, I can feel it coating my tongue, very nice promising flavor that does not disappoint when it gets to the high.

Exhale: Please remember to do that.

High: YES, there is a serious high that starts before you remember to exhale. Very cerebral, a good “Let’s get’er done” high. My mind does tend to wander a little (4 days I’ve been trying to get this review out)  because I keep thinking of better things to be doing at the moment, or see a funny cat meme and end up watching 30 minutes of Darwin Award videos.

Manicure: Tight, no fluff, no scruff, just the good stuff.

Overall: Solid 9, a performer that does not have me waking up with keyboard imprinted in the side of my face. I’m told that after a few years regular users report some jitters and anxiety from this strain that does not happen with NY Diesel so it should be put in a rotation with other strains if your going to become a constant consumer.

I pressed out some rosin to run through my new DipStick, not a real gusher but a decent press out, a second press would bring a little more, and a 3 ton press would really do the trick. Excellent L Limonene dominant terps coming off the pressed and decarbolated rosin/bud.

Purple Kush from NLCC/Medical Seeds

Redman - Sour Deezal
pk1STRAIN: Purple Kush
TYPE: Indica
ORIGIN: Medical Seeds
MEDIUM: Hydro under LED
NUTES: CLASSIFIED
GROWER: NLCC
APPEARANCE: Sparkly and tight, not rocks but certainly not fluffly nugs either.
SMELL: Musty dankness, a good but not bold smell
BURN: Clean
TASTE: As to be expected from a PK, rich and flavorful.
EXHALE: Terpines lingering on the tongue, resiny
HIGH: 4 tokes in and I am suspecting a creeper. 8 Pm and my first toke of the day. Pain subsiding under a slow cresting wave, not a head rusher but a solid body stone and a pleasant head buzz setting in.
MANICURE: Tight , not excessive, just enough guard left to hold trichs.
OVERALL: Quite like the Purple Kush that has been my mainstay for the last decade, solid performer, looking forward to some rosin later tonight, I’ll try and remember to post pics. 8.3 Overall

Hydroponics 101

Visit our Sister Site: 420 Growers



Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral nutrient solution only or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, biochar, mineral wool, expanded clay pebbles or coconut husk.

Researchers discovered in the 18th century that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water. In natural conditions, soil acts as a mineral nutrient reservoir but the soil itself is not essential to plant growth. When the mineral nutrients in the soil dissolve in water, plant roots are able to absorb them. When the required mineral nutrients are introduced into a plant’s water supply artificially, soil is no longer required for the plant to thrive. Almost any terrestrial plant will grow with hydroponics. Hydroponics is also a standard technique in biology research and teaching.
This panel has no ballasts to burn out like other plant lights. It does not run hot, just warm. You will not experience unsightly brown burned leaves when they accidentally touch the LEDs. This is common with most other lights that get very hot. This more controlled running temperature reduces the need to water so often and keeps rooms with plants from getting uncomfortably hot in the summer months requiring additional air conditioning. Extreme energy efficiency permits this new LED panel to pay for itself many times over each year in electricity savings. It saves 50% to 90% in energy consumption compared to incandescent bulbs or fluorescent tubes. Wide angle projection insures uniform leaf coverage. Scientifically calculated even blending of red and blue LEDs eliminates the time consuming task of repositioning separate colored lights back and forth trying to achieve uniform exposure. 14 to 16 hours per day is all that is necessary for maximum plant health with this wave blended lighting system. This allows distances 6″ and less between the LEDs and the plants accelerating photosynthesis. Red and blue wavelengths are for growing and flowering of plants. The typical white plant lights that are very hot is unnecessary and just consume excessive electricity. The purity of the LED generated light lengthens flowering periods. These LEDs turn on instantly and can be turned on by hand each day or work well with all standard lamp timers. The design of this new all in one Full Spectrum plant lighting panel allows maximum level photosynthesis food production, growth and flowering all in one. It is the new Full Spectrum system providing maximum plant health, beauty and productivity. These LED light panels are perfect as an all year plant light for permanent plant benches and especially productive for spring vegetable and flower seedling development. Color: Red + Blue = Purple looking to the eyes Working Voltage: 12V or 110V-220V Power: 13.8 Watts
