Change A Flowering Plant Back To Vegetative State

I think many of us are aware that it is possible to change the light schedule back to an 18-6 or 20-4 light schedule and “morph” the plant from flowering to vegetative again. This is often useful as there are situations, as in the plant below, where SOME ONE changed up the light schedule, giving it enough “dark” to flower, but WAY earlier than desired.

In this case, the grower chose to place the plants under 24-0 light. The photo below is after the plant has been placed in a greenhouse for the balance of the spring and summer and will be a very substantial plant!

You can clearly see here, the bud remnants as they turn into dark green curly and think leaves and new leaf structures begin to show. I hope you find it as cool as I do.

Every patient seen by Dr Frankel is given a personally created Treatment Plan created with the patient's specific issues defined. Plant medicine requires "tuning" of the dosing.

Patients are not charged for these messages, as this is how Dr Frankel has learned what he has learned. Follow up appointments in person or by phone/video are also available when needed

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
