Whenever I have a bag of trim I make sure to not let the trichomes go to waste by using a simple dry sift method utilizing a mesh screen and a kief collector that’s small enough to fit on my desk while I write. Trichomes and crystals cover both the bud and the sugar leaves on the cannabis plant and should not be squandered!

Building a Wick System: An Easy Way to Grow

This excerpt from my new book “Ask Ed: Marijuana Success” hones in on one of my favorite ways to grow cannabis at home with a wick system.

The wick container system is an easy way to garden because it’s self-watering and removes the uncertainty of when to water. It requires far less care than hand watering, and it’s simple, fast to assemble, and inexpensive to set up. The wick system is based on capillary action. One example of this is a tissue drawing up water from a puddle. The system we set up works on the same principle. Instead of tissue, we use braided nylon rope.
