Growing Exposed Episode 13—Trail Blazin'
Monday, Mar 12, 2018

In Growing Exposed Episode 13, we take an exclusive look at a cultivation facility producing cannabis year-round as green as “green” can get in the Pacific Northwest. Sustainable gardening practices are a high priority for this aptly named facility, “Trail Blazin'”, as they carve their own path, growing cannabis under 100 percent LED light fixtures.

Owner and operator Juddy Rosellison has heard all the skeptics when it comes to LED and he isn’t bothered by it.

“Who says LED can’t grow big buds?” says Juddy as he reaches into the canopy cradling one of the many chunky white tipped colas.

Juddy goes on to explain his theory of how a magnesium deficiency might be causing his LED flowering rooms to exhibit this phenomenon.  Magnesium is a huge player in the building of chlorophyll, but whatever the reason, I thought it was fascinating and went in for a closer look.

First, I pulled out the macro lens, and it confirmed what Juddy had told me, which is that the trichomes were completely intact.  It was actually quite beautiful. I couldn’t help but think of the fun you could have marketing a bud that was as rare and bleached out as the Kermode bear, aka “spirit bear.”
