About this Indica Strain

The indica cannabis strain named MK Ultra derives its name from the CIA’s Project MKUltra, which aimed to influence mental manipulation through strategic methods. MK Ultra produces extreme cerebral effects, which is how it relates to the CIA’s project. Its scent is pungent and reminiscent of wild flowers with sweet, earthy undertones. Its buds are dense, olive green leaves covered in trichomes and short red pistils.

The parent strains of MK Ultra are the hybrid OG Kush and indica G13.

The THC level of this strain averages at 15% but can reach levels of about 22%. Its known to increase appetite, inducing the munchies, and helps to alleviate pain and aches throughout the body. Some reviewers have described the high as hypnotic and fast-acting, often producing psychedelic cerebral effects despite its indica dominance.

MK Ultra can leave you feeling a bit dizzy upon first few hits of this strain, with some experiencing paranoia or anxiousness because of its potent THC content and unique cerebral effects. Novice consumers take heed, this strain is best for veteran consumers.

MK Ultra won first place Indica Strain at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2003 and second place in 2004.

More about Platinum Cookies Seeds

How to grow Platinum Cookies Seeds pot plants?

Though the strain can be grown effectively both indoors and outdoors, the grower will need to have a specific level of experience for farming it in a manner so as to reap heavy yields.

Indoor growing vs. outdoor growing

When farmed indoors, the plants take about 8-10 weeks to mature fully after which the flowers are ready to be picked. You’ll be reaping about 12 ounces of buds in every sq meter of growing space.

Platinum cookies when reared outdoors become suitable for harvesting around the middle of October. You’ll be reaping about 16 ounces buds from each and every plant.

Feeding

The strain has a strong affinity towards nutrients, and hence you should make sure to supply the plants with heavy doses of organic fertilizers.

Grow techniques

The plants grow to a medium height and the buds after emergence are soon replete with a dense coating of crystalline white trichomes. Follow breeders’ recommendations for ensuring a rich harvest.

Recreational use

weed in pill bottle

Prescription Pill Bottles: are they Airtight and Smell Proof?

Some people will chime in and say they think, “Orange pill bottles are more airtight than white ones” or vice versa; or that one store brand’s bottles are more airtight than another’s.

However, color and store brand aren’t good ways to determine whether pill bottles are airtight.

Why Prescription Pill Bottles aren’t Airtight

All pharmacy pill bottles are tested to measure:

  • Multiple internal reflectance,
  • Thermal analysis,
  • Heavy metal reactivity,
  • Non-volatile residue,
  • Prevention of ultra-violet light seeping through, and
  • Low moisture permeation.

However, air and light still flow through most pill bottles in small amounts. Standard child resistant caps aren’t designed to be airtight. They are designed to ensure a child can’t remove the cap easily. Pharmacy pill bottles are tested for low exposure to moisture, air, heat and other factors. However, there is still a window for the elements to seep through.

CVS vs. Walgreens bottles?

Many people mistakenly think that CVS pill bottles are more airtight than Walgreens are or vice versa. However, these companies change pill bottle manufacturers all the time, to meet needs of their business. The only way to determine if a prescription pill bottle is airtight is to test it. [1]

Test for Airtightness

Test for water permeation to see if your bottle is airtight. Put a dry tissue in the pill bottle. Then, submerge the closed pill bottle in water. Does the tissue stay dry after several hours? Chances are the answer is no. You’re going to find some moisture in your tissue.

The Demand amongst Weed Smokers

Many people want to use prescription pill bottles to transport drugs and other illegal substances without detection. Cannabis has a strong odor. It’s a hard drug to transport without detection. Many weed smokers mistakenly think that empty pill bottles make excellent vehicles for transporting weed. Many report that they can’t smell weed odors through the bottles.

However, it’s important to consider that most weed smokers aren’t aware of the smell of weed on their person because they’ve gotten so used to smelling it.

Transporting Weed in Pill Bottles

Though weed decriminalization is taking place all over the world, weed possession could still carry heavy repercussions for people. Though they might think their pharmacy pill bottles are airtight; chances are, they aren’t. [2]

Where to Get an Airtight Pill Bottle

There are many tutorials online about how to make prescription pill bottles airtight and water tight; involving things like Gorilla Glue, Duct Tape and Goo Gone. However, none of these solutions are guaranteed to work. In addition, any that do work won’t work long term.

The most airtight pill bottle is one designed for the medical and retail marijuana industry. These industry standards are the highest there are. People want to protect their weed from degradation; and prevent detection during transport. About Sealz is a top pill bottle brand advertised to be airtight, water tight and double sealed.

Find out which pill bottles provide the insulation. Some pill bottles should be avoided because …

The SOG cannabis growing method

Sea of Green

SOG or Sea of Green is a marijuana growing technique used to take advantage of all the available growing space. Basically, we only need to completely cover the whole space with relatively small pots, as many as needed. The number of pots used will depend on both the size of the pots and the available space. For our example, we will use a 1m2 growing tent and tell you a few tips that everyone should remember in order to achieve a successful SOG crop.

SOG indoor cannabis crop

The main goal of this kind of cultivation is reducing as much as possible the time needed to grow and flower the plants, while getting the best possible yield of our growing space. With this method, one can achieve the same results in two months – using cuttings – than in 3-4 months when growing cannabis seeds . Saving money in our light bills or being able to perform more crops per year are some of the benefits from this interesting growing technique.

How to set up a SOG crop

After getting all the needed growing gear (pots, lighting systems, fertilizers, etc.), the first thing to do is growing a motherplant from which we will take cuttings . For this kind of cultivation, it is very important having identical cuttings from the same motherplant – or at least from the same genetics – to achieve a homogeneous crop. Working with several genetics will surely cause problems regarding size, height, flowering time, nutrient needs, and a number of factors that will decrease the overall yield of the plants.

Once we have our motherplant ready, we should determine how many plants we are going to use per m2.; the amount of cuttings may depend on several factors and needs, but 25 plants/m2 is a good number to start with. Now we know how many cuttings we have to take from our motherplant and how many pots are needed to plant them.

It is advisable taking more cuttings than needed; this way, we can keep the best 25 ones for our growroom and discard the rest of them. We must choose the stronger and healthier ones, with similar heights, discarding those that would not form a homogeneous crop, what is crucial when using the Sea of Green method.

Ak47 clones ready to start a SOG crop

Another important aspect of this system is the type of irrigation that we are going to use for our plants. The best option is setting up an automatic watering system with dippers, connected to a nutrient solution tank. In this way, all plants will receive the same exact amount of nutrient solution, what will equally increase the production of all the plants.

Growing cannabis cuttings using the SOG technique

Plant each cutting in its respective pot ; we can perform a couple of transplants before flowering our plants, and the final pot’s size will depend on the used substrate. If we are using coco coir, 3-4 liter pots will be perfect; otherwise, if we use soil, we should use bigger containers, about 5-6L. Transplanting our plants saves space, helps to control the height of the cuttings and promotes growth with a shorter internodal distance, improving yields.

As the growth period of our clones will be short, we must use a quality root stimulator to enhance root growth, so they can quickly develop a well-formed rootball. Roots will drastically slow their growth after the pre-flowering stage – 2nd/3rd week of flowering – so we can stop adding root stimulator to the nutrient solution at this time.

Our plants should only have a main central bud with 2-3 side branches. We can prune the lower parts of the plants if needed, for we only want perfectly formed buds which usually only develop at the tops of the plants.

Plants should be about 35-50cm tall at the end of the flowering stage, so growing either Indica or Sativa strains is of key importance. We don’t want taller plants since the light emitted by the bulb would not reach the lower parts of the plants, developing few and squalid flowers. Indica marijuana strains are generally smaller and more compact than Sativas, which take more time to stop growing once the pre-flowering stage ends; for this reason, if we are using Sativa varieties we’ll flower them a bit sooner than the Indicas.

cannabis week 3 flowering

Cannabis Flowering Stages Week 3 & 4

Robert Bergman
August 31, 2020

After two weeks with 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness, the plant stops growing and every bud starts to develop its first flowers. Almost no leaves are being made anymore and the roots also don’t grow as quickly. All pistils are white and increase very rapidly. The little flowers are now just small white balls, spread along the branches. And the smell starts to really develop at this point. I always find this stage very exciting.

Week 3 & 4 Flowering Stage

  • Flowering Day 50
  • Flowering Day 52
  • Flowering Day 54
  • Flowering Day 57
  • Flowering Day 59
  • Flowering Day 61
  • 50 days
  • 57 days
  • 61 days

From now on, you shouldn’t prune your plants anymore. Your plants need all their energy to create buds, and pruning would create a wound the plant needs to repair, which costs energy.

Since the plants don’t grow much anymore and it completely focuses on the development of the buds, you have to provide it with different nutrients. Your plant needs less nitrogen, a bit of potassium and a lot of phosphor. You could use Bloom Fertilizer by Flower Power or ask your local garden center or growshop for advice.

  • New growth
  • Bud growth close
  • Bud growth macro

The plants now use a lot of water, so make sure they never go without and that the soil is always a bit moist. Reach your hand halfway down the pot and lift them out of the pot often to check the humidity. It’s better to water them a bit every day than water them a lot every 5 days. You can better manage your plants this way, because you’re checking every day so you won’t water them too little or too much as quickly.

It’s often tempting to already taste a little bud, but that has little use. The buds barely contain any THC and the taste isn’t all that great. You would only cause damage to the plant. Have a bit more patience.

Bergman’s Numbers

  • Light cycle: 12 hours light – 12 hours darkness
  • Light color: Orange-red – HPS
  • Temperature: 70-77 degrees
  • Humidity: 50 – 60%
  • Fertilizer: 1.3 – 1.4
  • pH: 6.0

Day 50

  • Side view
  • Close up

You can see the first buds appear starting today. They don’t really look like buds, but you can see more white hairs come out of the new growth. It’s best visible at the main bud, but you can see little white hairs appear all over the plant. From now on, the plant will use its energy for the production of as many buds as possible. So make sure the plant has everything it needs and provide it with sufficient water and a nice climate.Also check the leaves again, both the top and underneath. They should have a nice green color without spots, discoloration or deformation.

Bugs usually hang out underneath the leaves, so make sure you check these spots.If your leaves look healthy, you can increase the EC to 1.3. You can also switch to flowering nutrients now. This contains a lot of phosphor and potassium and a bit less nitrogen, which is exactly what your plants need to produce buds. I rinsed the soil with only acidulated water, so the plants can directly absorb all the new nutrients. Read more about the use of certain nutrients in the article Nutrients for marijuana plants.

I now give them 1/2 gallons of water every other day and they use every last drop. This is a good sign, because it means the respiration process is going well. They absorb tons of nutrients along with the water, which is exactly what they need right now.

You can now see the first real buds appear. They are just tiny balls with white hairs, but they’re buds! They don’t contain any THC yet and aren’t really smokable, but they’re starting to get a nice smell.

Gently squeeze one of these balls and smell your fingers after. This is very promising ;)The plant won’t grow anymore really, so you don’t need to check the height of your lamp every time.

Do however maintain a perfect climate.

  • The humidity needs to be between 50 and 60 percent, and the temperature shouldn’t rise above 77 degrees.
  • Always make sure the plants have enough water, and take good care of them.
  • This is a very important period, because the number of buds your plant will produce is determined right now.

What is a marijuana plant?

We’re all doing it for the buds. But in order to grow thick buds, all organs of the plant must be healthy: the leaves, root system, stems and tissue. Read the article What is a marijuana plant to see how all parts work together and what their functions are.

Day 54

  • Close up

This is really starting to look like a bud. You can see many white hairs grow from the little buds and probably also some leaves. These leaves are important, because they can tell you a lot about the health of your buds. If you look closely at those little leaves that grow out of your buds, you can see there’s already some resin on them. The leaves around the buds are perfect to make hash or weed butter out of later.I already taught you how to check if your plant is healthy. But now that the plant has buds, there are some more factors you have to take into account;

Color of the hairs

The color of the hairs must be white during the first two weeks. If that’s not the case the plant can experience stress, causing it to finish flowering quicker. After two weeks the first hairs will turn red, and towards the end of the harvest they’ll all be red/brown, as they should be.

Color of the leaves between the buds

These should also be green. If the tip of a leaf is brown it indicates a nutrient surplus, and you should give the plant half the dose the next time. If whole leaves are turning brown, you could be experiencing bud rot.

This won’t happen at this stage, but it can occur near the end of the harvest. So from now on you should also look at the color of the hairs and the leaves between the buds. If you are in doubt, immediately talk to one of our growing experts on the forum.

Day 57

  • Macro view
  • Bud view

It’s really starting to look like something now! They’ve grown a lot over the weekend! You can see that the little white balls are getting bigger and are starting to grow towards each other. This can eventually amount to very big buds. If you look at the bottom of your plants, you can see all kinds of little buds starting to grow. Keep the climate and your watering at the right level.If your plants are healthy and your leaves are nice and green, you can increase the EC to 1.4. If this is not the case, follow the step-by-step plan to see what’s wrong with your plants and approach a growing expert on our forum to help you.

What is the best temperature?

The absorption of water and the nutrients dissolved in it takes place through the roots of a plant. This process takes place through osmosis. Osmosis is a physical process in which substances can move from one liquid – separated by a semi-permeable wall (the plant cell) – to another liquid. This takes place from the side with the highest concentration to the side with the lowest concentration of nutrients. This movement of ions is called osmotic pressure.

The same principle applies to a marijuana plant, which consists of about 80% water. So the type and amount of substances on both sides of the cell wall are important. Let’s keep it simple and assume the liquid in a plant and the water outside the plant only contain N (nitrogen), P (phosphor) and K (potassium) ions.

If the marijuana plant used nitrogen ions, the concentration in the plant is lower than in the water outside of the plant. So new nitrogen ions are being sucked in from the water. If the plant has enough potassium ions in the plant (the concentration on both sides of the cell wall is the same), the K-molecules won’t come into action and stay where they are. If a plant has many more P-ions than the liquid outside the plant, the phosphor is sucked out of the plant, creating a shortage in the plant. Read more about osmosis in the article What is osmosis.

Despite the fact that this is a very important stage, the days all look the same. Besides checking the climate, plants and water, you don’t have to do much else. This is a good moment to start broadening your knowledge and read a number of articles on plant physiology.

The articles are quite detailed, but give you a good understanding of the functioning and the needs of a marijuana plant. You can use this knowledge in future harvests.To motivate you a little bit, I’ll show you a small series of pictures on how the main bud is going to develop. If you make sure you have enough knowledge and you stick to this schedule, it will look just like this on your plants…

Keep checking all values and take good care of your plants. Starting next week no new buds will be produced, but the buds will start to blow up. If your plants are healthy, the size of your buds can increase optimally.From this moment on, the risk of fungi and diseases increases. The buds are warm, humid spots where fungi can develop well under the right circumstances. From now on it’s important you take a number of things into consideration:

Don’t spray your buds

Make sure your buds stay dry and don’t spray your plants anymore. Bud rot, which develops best under a high humidity, is disastrous to your plants. You should therefore keep the humidity around 50% and the temperature around 77 degrees.

Proper ventilation

Fungi usually develop in places that don’t experience airflow. A proper ventilation between the buds prevents the easy nestling of fungi. It also blows the buds dry in case they got wet.

Checking your buds

Regularly check your buds and leaves for fungi and diseases. Look for brown, white or black spots on the leaves. Brown leaves that grow out of the bud and discoloration on top of the buds. Touch your plants as little as possible and preferably wear surgical gloves.

Here’s an overview of the most common fungi and diseases, with a link to an article with more information.

In this guide we'll cover the flowering stage (Week 3 & 4) that begins once the vegetative phase ends. This usually takes 3-4 weeks, read about…

Description

With its strong and sweet lemon qualities in both the smell and taste, this strain certainly lives up to its reputation and name when well-grown. With the indica lineage present in the sativa-dominant hybrid, it results in a rather calm experience for a haze-based strain — rather balanced between head and body effects overall. The plant grows with short internodes and responds well to topping. The standard shape for the untrained plant is a Christmas tree-style sativa, with solid buds that have a high calyx-to-leaf ratio.

Lineage

Lemon Skunk (Green House used the original Vegas Lemon Skunk clone) x Super Silver Haze (Skunk #1 x Haze C) x (Northern Lights #5 x Haze C)

Click here to purchase your own Super Lemon Haze seeds and start growing today!

Story

The Lemon Man is the holder of the original Lemon Skunk mother, which has roots reaching back nearly 20 years into the Las Vegas-area growing community.

Thought to be an original Sacred Seeds Skunk #1 release with a special lemony scent and flavor, the original Lemon Skunk made its way to Amsterdam and into the hands of Arjan, Green House Seeds’ chief breeder. He crossed it with a spectacular and highly Sativa-looking Super Silver Haze male, and as they say, “the rest is history…”

Aroma

Strongly citrusy (lemon peel, grapefruit), often smelling sweet like Lemonheads candy — the Haze elements come through in the form of a flowery and spicy undertone.

Flavor

Rather lemony with some flowery elements, almost identical to the smell when grown properly.

Qualities

A motivational, creative, mood-elevating experience, Super Lemon Haze also comes with an array of body effects. A buzzing, relaxed body that feels capable makes the elevated mood especially enjoyable. This is a great daytime outdoorsy strain, perfect for a summer day spent doing activities or simply enjoying the day. The medicinal qualities include: mood elevation, anti-anxiety, body relaxation, ocular attention, creativity, and appetite stimulation.

Grow Medium

Works well indoors or out, and works well in high-EC hydro or soil setups. Soil tends to bring out more of the lemon flavor and smell. Plants grow tall but respond well to topping.

With its strong and sweet lemon qualities in both the smell and taste, this strain certainly lives up to its reputation and name when well-grown.  With the indica lineage present in the sativa-dominant hybrid

northern lights dormant

2017 is Your Best Chance to See the Northern Lights for a Decade

Make that your New Year’s resolution before it disappears.

The northern lights are nature’s most dazzling light show. Also known as the aurora borealis, it’s often on any traveler’s bucket list. The lights appear only in the frigid cold Arctic regions from September to March, and lucky stargazers can witness its unearthly surreal colors dancing across the sky.

There’s some bad news though.The northern lights are expected to appear less frequently over the next 10 years.

No, the northern lights aren’t disappearing. But with every passing year until about 2025, the chances of crossing them off your bucket list gets a bit slimmer.

The northern lights take place on an 11-year solar cycle. As we enter 2017, we’re well onto the downswing of the cycle. This means fewer nights filled with the aurora borealis, an effect that will likely last until around 2025 or even 2026. You can see still the lights even in 2020, but it would much less frequent.

With each passing year, the northern lights are going to be much more difficult to see.

Keep up with my latest adventures

Where to See the Northern Lights in 2017

After 18 hours of researching and considering more than 30 different places around the world, I’ve narrowed it down to the top 4 places based on where you live.

With some luck, you will see anything from an ethereal green glow on the horizon to pulsating scarlet streaks across the sky, but bear in mind that it’s never a guarantee. Aurora hunting is ultimately a game of luck, and it does get frustrating going all the way to a place just for the aurora yet it doesn’t appear. Go for the activities, go for the attractions, keep yourself entertained so that you won’t be sorely disappointed with your vacation if the northern lights don’t show up.

If you are on the west coast of America. Fairbanks, Alaska

It’s said that if the sky was clear every night, you’d be able to see the northern lights on 250 nights a year at Fairbanks in Alaska. I can’t verify the authenticity of that statement, but one thing’s for sure: Fairbanks is the single best city for Americans on the west coast to see the northern lights.

While there may be better places in Alaska and Canada to see the northern lights, in my research I found that flying and finding an accommodation in Fairbanks is far cheaper and easier than other destinations like Fort Yukon, Whitehorse, or Yellowknife.

The city has a fair bit of light pollution, so driving out or picking a hotel some miles outside the city would be helpful. In particular, the Chena Hot Springs Resort is highly recommended, located about 60 miles from downtown Fairbanks.

If you are on the east coast of America. Iceland

I don’t even know where to begin describing how amazing Iceland is. Yes, it’s more cloudy than the other destinations listed here, but even if you don’t see the northern lights, you’d still have a fantastic trip. That’s Iceland for you.

If you think of Iceland and imagine a land of frozen desolation, you may be surprised to learn that the country’s name is a misnomer. Thanks to the warm waters of Gulf Stream, the climate is quite mild. In fact, the temperature is usually better in the winter compared to other northern light destinations.

What’s more, being a volcanically active island, the country is littered with geothermal hot springs from where you can soak in comfort and enjoy the northern lights. The country is currently experiencing a tourism boom and of particular note, WOW Air is offering $99 flights from the United States to Iceland. It’s almost a no-brainer.

If you are in Europe. Tromsø, Norway or Abisko, Sweden

Tromsø is arguably the most popular out of all the northern light cities, much due to its easy accessibility by flight and a plethora of excursions and activities you can do. Above all, it’s a charming city with good restaurants and lots of Airbnb rentals.

Tromsø is also located near several different meteorological zones. So if it’s cloudy in one place, there are likely to be clear skies a short drive away. If you don’t want to be hunting the lights by yourself, there are a number of aurora-chasing snowmobile or bus tours that you can join.

Another inviting option is to fly to Stockholm, then take a 13-hour sleeper train to Abisko in the far north of Sweden. Cloud cover — the aurora hunter’s arch enemy — shouldn’t trouble you there. Mountains and favorable prevailing winds combine to create some of northern Scandinavia’s most cloud-free skies. It’s often claimed that the city has statistically the most nights of clear skies in Europe.

At Abisko, you can take a chairlift up to the Aurora Sky Station, which is set at nearly 3,000 feet and in an ideal spot for seeing the lights.

If you are in Asia or Australia. Pick from the above

For what it’s worth, Asia is pretty big and it would depend on where exactly you are. For some countries, it’s cheaper to visit Norway or Sweden; while in other countries, flying to Alaska is the better option. In many cases, the prices for all of the above destinations were comparable and it’s really a toss-up.

Once again, depending on where you live, I would pick the destination with the easiest flight connections. Beyond that, just go with your interest level in each country.

What about the southern lights?

While the northern lights get all the spotlight and fame, the southern lights are equally magnificent on the opposite side of the world. Also known as the aurora australis, the southern lights also occur but are not as often observed.

To illustrate why they’re observed less often, here’s the auroral oval in the north, spanning across a good handful of countries and cities.

And we compare it to the auroral oval in the south.

. which pretty much covers only Antarctica. So basically, the primary audience of the southern lights is these guys here.
