Plant growth regulator (PGR)and growing cannabis

Is your bud dense? Are all your plants the of the same short, stocky variety? Is there no flavor to your bud? If your bud has a lot of orange hairs on it; chances are you have PGR weed. Yes, the bud is big, too bad it doesn’t good.

PGR or as some call it “plant growth retardants” are commercially available under different brand names. Some of these chemical’s purposes are to suppress a natural growth hormone and to produce dense buds and increase the resistance to mold.

Different PGR Chemicals

PBZ, this chemical diminishes the plant’s ability to produce THC and terpenes. This could explain the “no taste and no high” aspect.

Daminozide aka Alar, this breaks down into a molecule that is a known carcinogen. Banned for use in fruit and vegetable cultivation in 1989.

Chlormequat chloride, is found in flowering mixtures. PGR’s in weed have an impact on mammalian fertility, that means humans to! Watch out for these if your worried about any impact on your chances of having kids one day.

Plants that are treated with Florel or Ethephon are expected to have increased THC levels in the vegetative stage. Florel in cannabis is used to reverse “hermies” or hermaphrodite plants.

PGR in weed makes it less appealing and lack in potency compared to other buds.

It makes sense that we should all learn to know where and what our weed has been growing. PGR’s are bad for us. They are toxic, highly dangerous and cancerous to humans that consume them. PGR’s in weed can produce a scattered even paranoid high, you may also develop a terrible headache.

Take note that PGR’s are not the same as natural plant hormones. PGR’s are synthetic chemicals. These chemicals are designed to change the plant behavior. Many of these chemicals are highly toxic. Most PGR’s have been banned since the 1970’s for human consumption. Sad to say they are still being used in the cultivation of cannabis, which leads to our ingestion of poisons. Cannabis is a large cash crop industry — the faster that a plant can be harvested the better. The denseness of the bud and the time of harvesting produces a better profit. If only people could see the damage that these chemical and others like them can cause to our bodies.

Effects of PGR’s on humans

Chronic exposure to pesticide for humans is linked with respiratory diseases, congenital disabilities, diabetes, fertility, and reproductive problems. Cancer in many forms has been related to pesticides.

Hash oil concentrates contain similar chemical properties to pesticides. During the extraction, any residual pesticides on the cannabis are concentrated just the same as the cannabinoid. The effects when smoked are magnified ten times that of the bud or flower due to the process involved.

Here is a what happens when this chemical is usedin the cultivation of your cannabis. Myclobutanilis used in crops like grapes to keep the fungus under control. The problem when used on cannabis plants comes around when it is heated, as in a joint. When heated through smoking, this chemical changes to hydrogen cyanide. This was the poisonous chemical used in Nazi gas chambers.

Do you want to smoke PGR weed? Read your labels, my friend; it may help you to live a healthier life while indulging in the beautiful, healthy cannabis available out there.

Remember to always intake responsibly and most of all, enjoy!

Florel PGR Who’s used it??

I have a little issue with some clone only cuts throwing some nanners on me at going on week 4 of flower.

I have used a product called “Optic Foliar Switch” in the past, that replaced Dutch Master’s Reverse with great results but I used it in the first and second weeks of flower. I had a light leak at the time.

This time, I know what the issue is that caused the nanners and it that problem has been taken care of. I just need to know if anyone has used any ethephon based products such as Reverse this far into flower with good results?? I am leaning towards Florel since it is a concentrated product and saves me pretty much hundreds of dollars. Keep in mind these plants are not true hermies, they are throwing nanners due to stress. Gg4, Corey, Chem 91, 413 Chem and Headbanger.

I need advice pretty urgently as I need to get this under control. I have a bottle of Florel coming in the mail, should be here by today or in the morning.

Could you give me some input here bro? I have seen a thread where you mentioned using it on GDP in week 5 of flower. How did that end up for you?

I have not seen any balls. Just nanners here in there. Mostly on the 413 Chems and a couple on the Chem 91. I seen only one last night on my gg4 though and I couldn’t get to it very well because of the act of net.

How did it turn out for you? How seedy was your crop?

No I don’t mind a bit using the product on my buds, if it will stop the nanners and sees production then I’m down. The toxicity is low anyway. Do you have experience with Florel?

Yep, that thread is in my signature. I’m still drying the third plant from that grow so I won’t have a total yield report until next week. The Florel did the job, man. I was surprised at first, but science is science and PGR’s do indeed affect how plants use their hormones.

The GDP#2 was the plant that I first noticed nanners on. It was the largest plant in the tent, dwarfing over GDP#1 which came from the same pack. Both plants had nanners on them. GDP#2 had more than GDP#1, but at the end of the day neither had that many. The third plant never ended up with a single nanner. which is good news because it’s a sign that even with the other two plants showing nanners, they never actually developed far enough along to pollenate anything.

Everything in the tent turned out to be fire. This 3rd plant (purple trainwreck) that’s currently drying looks to be the dankest of the three. She also went 70 days and was a late bloomer.

I don’t haven enough experience using Florel to start making claims, but I so far the results are promising (at least anecdotally for me).
