Author and cannabis cultivation expert Daniel Boughen will be guest lecturer this week with a free, non-credit “Hempology 101” lecture at the University of Victoria (UVic) Cinecenta Theatre on Wednesday, January 30 from 3 to 4 p.m.
Boughen, author of the well-received grow book Medical Cannabis: A Garden of Peace, owns the activist blogs oh-cannabis.com and cannaceuticals.com, as well as running a peer support group, teaching cannabis growing techniques since 2004 at howsitgoineh.com.
His technique for indoor growing is known as photoperiodic control, or, more popularly, the “12-1 lighting schedule.” According to Boughen, this technique cuts energy usage by up to 27 percent, while increasing yields by up to 25 percent.
The Hempology 101 lecture on Wednesday will focus on growing medical cannabis, and will feature Boughen’s insights into how plants respond to environmental stimuli, and how these stimuli can be artificially created to help keep plants at their happiest and achieve the best results in marijuana cultivation.
These free, non-credit Hempology 101 lectures are presented every week by Ted Smith and the UVSS Hempology 101 Club. Their aim is to educate the public about cannabis and its prohibition.
