Marijuana Book Review – Kick-Ass Cannabis And Veggies


kick ass cannabis and veggies bookThere’s a big shift in the marijuana cultivation world towards using more organic grow methods and techniques. Much like the movement by consumers towards organic foods, more and more marijuana consumers are looking for products made with flower that is grown organically. For a long time growers have been feeding their plants with nutrients that are full of heavy metals. People are going to be moving away from that in the future.

On top of the health reasons for growing marijuana organically, people are also going organic because they want to reduce their garden’s carbon footprint. Sustainable practices are something that every grower should try to do as much as possible. And for those that don’t care as much about the health or noble benefits of growing organic marijuana, the rest are likely to eventually get on board because growing organically is much cheaper. Anyone who has ever grown on a large scale and had to buy even just Bud Blaster will tell you that.

Growing marijuana organically is easy, if you know how. If you are not educated on organic marijuana gardening, you will no doubt get frustrated and have undesirable harvests (if you harvest at all). A great way to learn how to grow marijuana organically, or veggies organically for that matter, you should check out Kick-Ass Cannabis and Veggies by Kip ZonderkopKick-Ass Cannabis And Veggies breaks down very complex concepts and processes into words and steps that are very easy to understand and follow.

A lot of marijuana grow books are overly complicated. They may be great for the marijuana cultivation blackbelts, but for rookies, simpler books are much better to learn the basic concepts and foundations that growing quality plants is based on. The chapters include soil, garden pots, water, teas, foliar sprays, compost worms, cannabis considerations, and organic gardening in eight steps. A lot of the book teaches general gardening principles that are applicable to all plants, because after all, gardening wasn’t just invented to cultivate cannabis!

I found some other review quotes from people that have read the book on the web, which I have included below:

“This is the perfect quick-start guide to organic container gardening–concise, practical, organized. Your streamlined step-by-step approach makes it easy for everyone to go organic. And now I know how to fix my worm bin.”
–Jeanne Ponzetti, Botanical Consultant

“Being a caregiver first, before starting a commercial enterprise, gave me a love for cannabis that was rooted in simplicity, quality, and spirit. Kick-ass Cannabis and Veggies a DIY Organic Gardening book sums up the journey in 75 magnificent pages. When a gardener seeks knowledge, a book like this can make a substantial impact with it’s humble message. Organic gardening is just better. Better for us, the environment and the overall experience with cannabis. Bravo Kip Zonderkop, every level of gardener has a new standard of reading material to improve oneself!” –Nicolas Handolff, Master Grower, Pink House Dispensaries

As one of the reviewers referenced above, the book is just a bit over seventy pages, which is a very manageable read. As a novice marijuana grower, you should be looking for the 101 on growing, which this book provides, and not the equivalent to an upper-level college textbook.

If you want to check the book out, you can find Kick-Ass Cannabis and Veggies by Kip Zonderkop on Amazon. At $6.99 it’s very reasonably priced. You can also get a preview of the book and get a good idea of just how solid the information is.

    The whole concept of organic gardening is a great idea, but most people that claim to grow organic do not. Then you got some people that would suggest that organic is the reason that the marijuana did not come out to strong or of the most amazing quality.
    The most important part is the method that you are going to use to grow your marijuana. Growing your marijuana in a organic method can be done in many different methods. It can even be done in a top drip hydroponics system. In The Fine Art Of Growing Hydroponic Marijuana you will learn how to grow in hydroponics using either organic or non organic methods. The method has much to do with the amount of build up in the growing medium such as in soil or in hydroponics media. Build up in your system of growing can cause the end product to not burn well or taste well. The product can basically be affected and it has nothing to do with what you are feeding your plants. Try hydroponics with organic General Hydroponics for the most tastiest results!

    Call the Kickapoo Indian Medicine company in Eugene Oregon “Those that plant seed eat well”

    saltwater emulsions flavor the produce………do they also provide mineral residue? burning salt? I only grow outdoor freshwater fish emulsion and edible food by products are the developed soil and nutrients of my produce……..learn to grow your water first and your soil comes from the water……..and sun ……and seed.

    Or you could begin participating in the prayer ceremonies with the seven sister’s Indian Methodist White Bare medicine society The Kickapoo Indian Medicine company……. look for a Kickapoo Indian medicine show at your public library

    I have seen this with other plants, but there is a psychological “thing” about growing your medicine and your food on the compost heap. We have to get over our thinking and what is best for us and begin thinking about what our plants need and want so desperately!!! It will be better for us in the long run anyway!!

  6. Yes, I’ve seen some absolute monsters grown in a garbage bin full of compost. A straight-compost outdoor grow produced a monster. Organics take a more preventative approach to pests by using, for example, neem and chitin in bug/crustacean shells.

    Organic was and is still my favorite method!!! I always kept my plants at an optimum range using Blood and Bone meal, kelp, and earthworm castings mixed with soil and good drainage. I had one of my collective try Hydro, and while it worked far better than some of the early experiments I saw, it still lacked. All I had to reference was “The Organic Gardeners Encyclopedia” and “The Marijuana Cultivator’s Guide” this was my introduction to the 1+1=2 simplicity of non-chemical growth of anything. You will never give your plants chemical burns and it is nearly impossible to run your plants out of the essential nutrients. Never let your first thought be pests (unless you lay eyes on one) think some micronutrients that cannabis uses like we use B-vitamins. In a strong mix you should have no problems (depending on the base soil one begins with). I would highly recommend this book to those who have considered the organic realm, but are stuck on hydro as well as chemical soil methods. The benefits can be seen immediately, not to mention strong vegetative growth and bud production!!!
