Internationally recognized as the number one cultivation author, Ed Rosenthal along with renowned journalist David Downs returns with Marijuana Harvest.
Marijuana Harvest shows how to maximize the yield and quality of the harvest. Full-color throughout, the book’s descriptive photos make it an attractive guide to the steps needed to harvest, dry, trim, cure, and store top-quality buds.
Content includes time-, labor- and energy-saving tools, and equipment like trimmers, climate controls, drying methods, storage systems, and workflow charts. Marijuana Harvest is the most complete and accurate source on the subject.
Going beyond the anecdotal clutter, Rosenthal and Downs thoroughly researched every section of this book, visiting personal gardens and commercial farms and observing techniques and experimental methods under development. Winners of prestigious cannabis cups are interviewed. The results are an accessible and informative guide for all marijuana growers.
Today, more Americans than ever before have the ability to grow and cultivate marijuana for medical and personal use. Twenty-three states and Washington, D.C., have laws permitting medical cannabis, and four states and Washington, D.C., have legalized adult-use recreational sales. Momentum is building, with Arcview Market Research predicting an additional 11 states voting in favor of legalization in 2016.
