I invited Dr. MJ from Coco For Cannabis back on the Cheap Home Grow podcast, and he was kind enough to talk about how to stress train and top your cannabis plants. His explanation of how stress training and topping is easy to understand and his advice is perfect for a new or even experienced home grower that’s looking to pick up a few helpful tricks on how to maximize yield.

We here at the Cheap Home Grow Podcast always appreciate Dr. MJ’s almost “precision like” approach to growing your own. He’s been on the show in the past and talked about germination, transplanting and how to grow in coco coir.

This podcast with Dr. MJ won’t disappoint. Please listen and tell me what you think in the comments section below. Thanks.

I was fortunate to interview Canadian home grower Jenna. She’s been growing for many years.

I’ve gotten to learn Jenna over the past few months and her knowledge about growing and genetics is unmatched to any past guest I’ve ever had. To say she’s passionate about cannabis and it’s potential would be a massive understatement.

Jenna and I put together a list of common household tools and equipment any domesticated house will probably have laying around.

A lot of these tools are basic and will help you become a better cannabis grower.

At the end of the podcast, she also stresses listeners to make there own clones. She explains a simple procedure on how to do so.

I had the pleasure of talking with Michael Eberhardt from @docbudshighbrix on Instagram.

He comes on the show to talk about the importance of Nutrient Density and explains how to bud wash your cannabis in a simple and very cost-effective manner.

I can tell Michael has a deep passion for growing cannabis and left a job in corporate America to pursue his dream of growing.

He goes into detail as to why the brix reading for cannabis is important for cannabis growers because the higher the brix reading, the quality of bud will dramatically increase. He made the point that a lot of organics cannabis growers see relatively high brix readings hovering around the 12 or 13 mark but he feels with enough focus on quality versus quantity a brix reading of nearing 20 would be ideal for “top-shelf” bud. He made the point, organic growers in Northern Italy are consistently getting high brix readings.

You can visit Michael’s website here and please follow him on Instagram. See how Michael explained the process of bud washing.

Why You Should Care Which Amendments You Have In Your Soil

Why You Should Care Which Amendments You Have In Your Soil

I was fortunate enough to have youtube sensation on the Cheap Home Grow podcast this week. Medfit talks in detail about soil amendments and why as a home grower you should care about what amendments you put into your soil.

Medfit is self-educated and talks how he started growing in Las Vegas in 2014. Like many new or novice home growers, he tested multiple different growing mediums but eventually found his way with growing organically.

Medfit talks passionately about how super soil does nearly all of the work for him. Like many traditional home growers that have to PH, PPM, EC etc.. he lets his soil do that work for him.

He does into detail as to how this process works.

I especially like this approach because as many of you know I’m a relatively new grower. I, like most home growers, can’t devote an excessive amount of time every day to growing there own so Medfit’s almost “hands off” approach is something I think you can truly appreciate especially if you’re looking for a simple way of growing your own cannabis without sacrificing quality or yield.

This podcast is definitely worth a listen for anyone that’s interested in “spicing” up there own soil and getting a better quality tasting bud.
