HOW TO GROW MARIJUANA
VARIETIES OF MARIJUANA (HEMP AND RUDERALIS)
The ruderalis is a very small hemp growing in a wild way at the side of roads in Soviet Union. These hemps are VERY weak in power, and the American farmers confused certain small varieties of indica with the ruderalis. The only valid characteristic of the ruderalis is it's very precocious flourishing. Those last years, the grafter in the United States and the Netherlands mixed the ruderalis with sativas and powerful indicas to produce rather powerful hybrid, blooming early. These hybrid works well under lamps.
Certain farmers think they are growing pure ruderalis. They are not. On about 300 scientifically tested varieties, the power generally went between only 0.05 percent to 0.5 percent of THC, a mediocre herb at the best. The farmers thinking they are growing a rather powerful ruderalis are most likely growing an hybrid one, or something completely different, like an indicas. The ruderalis is only useful for precocious maturation grafting, because the plants bloom almost immediately.
The American farmers wanting to develop a precocious blooming but, at the same time, a powerful herb should look at the wild hemps, like those growing along the rivers, cultivated fields, etc... This native hemp is mature early; the plants grow taller and more fully than the ruderalis and they form thicker buds; the power is at least equal to the ruderalis, but generally the hemp is better, and the plants had time to develop themselves against the native insects and the diseases. These wild hemps had the time to constitute resistance to the local mildews, to the insects.
If you want to develop a precocious blooming herb and you don't have access to a naturally powerful and precocious blooming marijuana, use a native hemp to graft it with a powerful herb, especially if you foresee to plant in exterior.
