Flowers from my Personal Gardener
Here is our first generation of Mob Boss, a hybrid excellent for tension relief. Personally I think she looks lovely in glass on a tabletop, but she is admittedly a bit too fragrant for that. So after her little photo shoot she goes back under lock and key; to dry and then cure and then be consumed by yours truly.
One of the (many) things I love about cannabis, is the hands-on aspect of it. Because we grow it ourselves for my specific needs, it becomes a very personal ongoing project. And because they are living things, these female plants that we force into maturation, the personal aspect is yet again compounded. Like growing food for your family, or breastfeeding your baby. It’s this production of tangible goods for our own personal use. It makes one feel independent, somewhat off the grid, less dependent on the man (I told you I was a closeted hippy).
In some of these you can really see the heaviness in the leaves, showing they are still wet. As tempting as it is, smoking this will not get you stoned, so don’t bother. Drying takes anywhere from 4-10 days, is something that you cannot rush, and something that should be monitored regularly. Once drying is complete the buds go into mason jars to continue the curing process.
