ive been reading the cannabis breeders bible by Greg green lately and if your like me and have read a dozen "how to grow" books or are tired of trawling the net for info this one is something different, it explains the cannabis industry & how breeders such as sensi might go about things also how to breed for traits & there frequency in a known gene pool, creating IBL's and how to protect your work by only releasing F1 seeds. i'd recommend it to anybody thats interested in learning about genetics/breeding, or even just how the strain your growing was created, best £9 ive spent in ages.

any other good cannabis/ganja history/info books post them on this thread
come on people share the knowledge lol

marijuana botany by Robert Connell Clarke. Its not much fun to read tho, more like a school text book. Has alot of detailed info on the complete life cycle

teaming with microbes by jeff lowenfels & wayne lewis although not a true cannabis book its full of info on the soil food web, making compost & compost teas, caring/looking after the soil in your pot(s) damn good read for anyone interested in how your plants obtain there food, warning!!! the first few chapters are hard going as they describe each part of the food web ie fungi, bacteria, protozoa, nematodes,etc and there role in said web lol

funny thing sicklehand but i have read both books recently and the book by Greg Green was a much more interesting read.The book by Robert Clark was more like reading a text book, very informative just not as interesting of a read .i aquired a copy of both after reading your reply on my shiva skunk thread. many thanks for the info    i am about to start rereading the cannabis breeders bible as i am sure i only took in a small part of what it had to say.

lol SL, with the interweb these days books are droping off the face of the planet along with the people who read them but heres one to read before they do its called True living organics by the rev, its a guide to growing a 100% organic cannabis with a just add water grow style well maybe a few teas until you find the right balance but the TLO style basically gives the power back the plant instead of it being force-fed synthetic or organic nutrients on a man made time line. the TLO style also means you never through your soil away its re composted and used again with a few added catalysts to kick start the micro beasties that help provide the plant with nutrients.

Hi Sickehand!
We got the 'Marijuana Growers Handbook' from Ed Rosenthal and the 'Marijuana Grow Basics, the Easy Guide for Cannabis Aficionados' from Jorge Cervantes. The second book is easy to read and always gives us a clear answer on the questions we are having. However the information we get from that book is very limited and that's why we use Ed Rosenthal's 'bible' for more specific information or if we just want to learn more about marijuana.
For some enjoyable reading go for: 'Potculture, the A-Z guide to stoner language and life'. It's a great book, so are the two info books!
Cheerio, 420c

It's still available through Amazon Martini. I've read some of it in pdf format.

It's not that I don't like books, just that cannabis related literature is something the pigs look for when they bust your house.

the best grow book i had was wietologisch handbook written by simon vinkenoog, small book with simple techniques, i read the cervantes book about indoor growing, i kept it with me in bed every night for years.. not to copy his way of working but to learn and to check my own experiences.
there is no holy book for succes, after all you have to do it all by yourself!
So the Freakbrother books part 1 to 13 helped me too, more of how to behave how the scene works.. how not to get ripped, how to make money etc.etc. how to built a bus ( car) etc.
it gave me lots of inspiration!! thanks Gilbert Shelton!!! many thanks!
