A good grow, regardless of scale, starts with one of two things: a clone or a seed. Cloning is the act of taking a cutting from a mature plant (preferably while in a vegetated state) then rooting said cutting with the use of water or a growth hormone. As the name suggests, you’re making a genetic copy. This process is highly popular among commercial growers due to its convenience and genetic consistency.
The more we learn about the effects of cannabis and the science behind them, the more apparent it becomes that there is more at play than the raw THC and CBD numbers we see on jars and labels. While the amount of THC definitely plays a large role in the potency of a strain, the various terpenes found in cannabis are just as important in determining how a particular variety of our favorite plant is going to affect you.
What a time to be alive! Pot shops are being advertised on billboards and everyone’s favorite portable smoking method is now available for easy in-store purchase—pre-rolls.

All you really need is a pack of Zig Zags and some tasty herb, but if you’re looking to take your roll game to the next level, here are some accessories to get you started.
