Strains to Try

What is Fade and How to Achieve it?
If you’re a new grower, you may be unaccustomed to fade; while if you’re a more experienced grower, you may already have your own methods established to encourage more fade on your plants. But perhaps we can supply you with some information you weren’t previously aware of.
The fade of cannabis leaves can be thought of similar to that of any other plant where the leaves change colour as they progress into Autumn.
With cannabis, there are various aspects that influence the fade however. Certain plants will fade differently depending on the genes, some may fade only under certain lighting, while others may only fade under cool temperatures etc (We’ll go into more detail below).
Cannabis leaves tend to fade based off the environmental conditions they encounter, some phenotypes may fade under normal conditions and under all lighting types, while others may fade under HPS but not under LED, or visa versa.
Temperature can also play a large part in the fade of certain genetics. Many plants will only express colour changes when temperatures drop below 20’C, because of this some growers may lower their room temperatures near the end of flower to bring out the purple colouration, which may also affect the calyxes.
Some growers may also stop or lower feeding nitrogen around the middle of the flowering period to have more of a nitrogen deficiency lead fade starting from the bottom of the plant. The combination of nitrogen deficiency (at an acceptable time in flowering) with a genetic fade may also adjust the appearance of the fade. Some fades may also only be introduced once a lack of nitrogen is present.
Other plants just fade regardless of feed and temperatures, these kinds of fades will often start on the sugar leaves and work their way down the plant. Though these can also only fade under certain lighting types in a few cases.
You may wonder why a fade is so sought after, the reason is simply aesthetic value. Faded fan leaves make for good photography, while colouration on the sugar leaves and calyxes will be able to, in many cases, give the bud itself some more bag appeal.
Cannabis Clinical Studies and Case Reports
There has been a large shift in public perception of cannabis in the past decade, thanks mostly to clinical studies which have come out showing overwhelming evidence that the plant is more of a friend than a foe to us. In fact, the recreational cannabis market owes much of its being to the initial presence of medical marijuana. Certainly of interest is the fact that it is no longer seen as a primarily youth orientated interest, but instead has become the saving grace of many elderly patients, now able to find relief due to cannabis.
It should be noted however that there remains claims from both cannabis lovers and those who oppose it that lack in sufficient evidence. Those who wish to suppress cannabis will often put out anti-weed rhetoric based off their own biases, with little link to factual information. On the other side are cannabis proponents who make unsubstantiated claims about the benefits and abilities of cannabis.
The internet is filled with extremely valuable documentation on both reports and case studies related to the effects and benefits of marijuana. You can use the site Cannabis-Meds in order to find a number of clinical studies and case reports which will help you ensure that your approach to cannabis is one that can be validated with sufficient information. While studies aren’t the be-all and end-all of information, they do provide us with a great platform for education.
