Grow Help

Here at WeGrow, we like to see our growers thrive! That’s why we arm you with all the latest and exclusive cultivation tips to make your harvests the best they can be. Because not everything concerning your plants’ health has to come from the inside of the plant, WeGrow is here to help. ‘Fimming’ and ‘Topping’ are two techniques that all growers should know.

Timely cropping is effective for many different varieties of plant life, but it is especially important for indoor cannabis cultivation.  

Keep reading for an exclusive guide to the specific advantages and uses of ‘fimming’ and ‘topping’.

What is ‘Topping’?

First, it is important to know what to look for when you are getting ready to crop and ‘sculpt’ your plants. Here, growers should be looking for the little fresh nodes of leaf that shoot out of the main branches of the cannabis plant during ‘vegging’:


Within this node, there is a new branch waiting to form. ‘Topping’ is the act of splitting open this kernel and snapping off the main vein. The more kernels you snap off the more ‘tops’ you will have. As you gain experience in this, the act will become natural to you. Doing this will create another branch, and therefore more budding sites.

What is ‘Fimming’?


Fimming can be described as “topping to the max”. With this technique you are taking the same node, finding its kernel and making a broad cut. Holding it with your thumb and finger and use your nails to make a nice pinch:

Unlike topping, here you are leaving the main vain intact and instead making sure to crop the leafy parts above it. Similarly to topping, however, this will cause the plant to widen and to create more budding sites.

What’s the Difference?

For most growers, the main difference here depends largely upon the size of your grow. If you have a lot of room to work with, fimming would be your best bet because it will really make your plants wide and robust. More branches means more buds. It is also beneficial if you are training your plants to grow more squat than tall.

If you have limited space but still want to ensure optimization, topping will be your best choice. Your plants may not have the width of those that have been fimmed, however you will still get extra offshoots and more buds with this method.

Cannabis cultivation is a science that depends on the diligence of its scientists. Small to mid-sized growers in the 21st century are lucky to have lots of information at hand. Growers who know how to crop their plants properly will surely reap the benefits of their efforts.

Wellness

Cannabis culture has been growing at an ever-expanding rate. People are accepting marijuana’s benefits, and it is becoming international! Thus, the government is rethinking the old rules and regulations that have long held back cannabis. Because of this, the mainstream public seems to be intrigued by new possibilities of pain management.

Users have recently been finding out about compounds such as CBD, or “cannabidiol”. Consequently, this is one of the most exciting developments within the cannabis “boom”.

Keep reading for an exclusive WeGrow guide to CBD and its amazing advantages!

What is CBD?

Scientists have discovered CBD (cannabidiol) as one of 100 canna-compounds. Users will not get ‘high’ on CBD, as it is not psychoactive, unlike THC. These two compounds are able to interact and counteract each other.

Many patients with serious conditions now highly prefer pain management through CBD because it does not get them ‘high’. Caregivers now have an alternative to offer instead of traditional pain killers.

Cancer patients whom CBD may also benefit will also see this as welcome news. Researchers at The National Cancer Institute have concluded that CBD may help to alleviate cancer symptoms. They are finding even more specific uses of CBD as funding for further studies is increases.

States have enacted their own versions of public policy following cannabis legalization. Therefore, THC/CBD levels allowed by the government sometimes vary. However, generally the THC-to-CBD ratio is 20:1 on the recreational side. Researchers and scientists have made great efforts that have allowed medicinal growers to focus more on their CBD production. Patients and caregivers, consequently, have welcomed this new development with open arms.

 What are the Benefits of CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) has the potential to treat a number of conditions. Patients have been successfully treated for PTSD, alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, epileptic episodes and other neurological disorders. Researchers have credited CBD  as an anti-inflammatory, blood sugar regulator, antibacterial, anti-carcinogen and even as neuroprotective agent.

What’s with this recent CBD ‘Fad’?

People’s recent acceptance of cannabis culture can be seen as a positive thing. However, it is not without its side-effects. Public awareness of the differences and specific benefits of compounds such as THC and CBD is needed to avoid the spread of negative stigmas that only set the movement further back.

As the public gains more information, confusion lessens. The average person is beginning to understand that CBD is not just a fad, and in fact is a ‘miracle-cure’ solution for effective pain management & disease treatment!
