INTRODUCTION

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Dear Friends,

Company

In the United States and Canada legalisation and normalisation of our sacred crop is past its infant stages. Tax rewards are getting bigger and bigger, ‘organised crime’ is down due to less demand from the illegal market and cannabis stocks at the stock markets are continuing to do exceptionally well. Even cryptocurrencies based on the online cannabis trade have entered the play field! But don’t tell it to the EU. There is still no overwhelming feeling in Brussel in favour of full and total legalisation. In its headquarters, still the same old reflexes brought on by a propaganda war exist: more and more repression seem to still win out over common sense and intelligent politics.

Fortunately, that does not stop some strongminded and proud countries like Greece, Switzerland and Austria to take revolutionary steps towards legalisation of medicinal CBD strains. Luxembourg is the newest member in this group, where full legalisation of medicinal and recreational cannabis is around the corner.

ADVANCED PK

N-P-K Nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are basic nutrients essential to grow healthy and strong plants. These elements are present in the vast majority of liquid and solid fertilizers as well as properly mixed growing substrate. A lack or excess of one of these elements can have fatal consequences. Nitrogen affects the general growth of your plants and is needed most during the growth stage. Plants containing enough

nitrogen have large green leaves and grow fast. On the other hand, nitrogen deficiency results in slow growth and gradual yellowing of leaves. Phosphorus is an element indispensable to all organisms living on Earth. It is a component of plant’s DNA and works as the engine of system distributing energy in the plant. It is of a great importance for the proper development of flowers. Potassium plays an important role in metabolism of carbohydrates, providing plants with strong cell walls and thicker tissues. We can’t forget to mention that potassium improves nitrogen utilization and significantly promotes stronger growth of the root system. Plants need potassium throughout the whole life cycle – more during the flowering stage, along with phosphorus, because these two promote the formation of larger buds. All three discussed elements play an essential role in photosynthesis. In the flowering stage, it is advisable to supply larger doses of phosphorus and potassium in order to encourage the formation of flowers. The vast majority of professional cannabis growers follow this rule. The Advanced PK fertilizer with a balanced phosphorus / potassium ratio is perfect for this. Advanced PK suits well for growing indoor as well as outdoor and can be used as a supplement to Dutch Formula liquid fertilizers or with any available range of other fertilizer companies.

CRYSTALTEA

Crystaltea is the new brand owned by Crystal S.r.l., an Italian company producing and distributing CBD products under the well-known brand Crystalweed. Crystaltea offers five types of herbal teas, each with specific beneficial effects, inspired by the names and powers of five crystals: Amazonite, Agate, Moonstone, Aquamarine and Rose Quartz. There is a herbal tea for every need, i.e. relaxation, purification, draining, slimming and promotion of immune defences and concentration. Each blend is made with herbs and roots from all over the world, which

are carefully selected and placed into a biodegradable pyramidal teabag in order to ensure that vegetable parts have the necessary space to rehydrate so that the taste and properties of the individual ingredients become richer. Bags are then packaged in a simple and elegant way. Herbal teas do not contain hemp, but just oil produced from ‘Humulus Lupulus’, an extract of hops, which comes from the same family as cannabaceae and, therefore, naturally contains cannabinoids and other active ingredients such as humulene and xanthohumol. The essential oil of hops has excellent sedative properties, so much so that it is used in various therapies to combat states of anxiety, restlessness, nervous excitement and insomnia. With Crystaltea herbal teas, consumers will enjoy a brand new experience with significant beneficial effects. Consumer safety, satisfaction and well-being are the strengths and absolute priorities of Crystal S.r.l. For this reason, their brands have always been synonymous with high quality.

CLONEX

This is a truly iconic product, born out of our own experience as volume propagators way back in the eighties. It was our idea to use a gel base for the rooting hormones and our development of that idea that lead directly to Clonex. It was, as far as we can tell, the first such gel on the market - anywhere. It is now the market leader on three continents and has a huge, and deservedly loyal, client base. The famous rooting gel - suitable for most plant species and most types of propagation.

www.growthtechnology.com 14

Clonex delivers every time because: It is easy to use. It seals cut tissue instantly, eliminating the risk of infection or embolism. It contains rooting hormone at 3000 parts per million, the full strength required for explosive root development. It is a gel - far safer than liquids or powders because it cannot splash or blow about. Unlike liquids and powders, CLONEX will remain in contact with the stem right through the rooting period. It does not wash off when plants are watered. It works with partner products ROOT RIOT, FORMULEX and CLONEX MIST to give young plants the healthiest and most powerful start in life.


PARXTREME LAMP

A normal HPS lamp producing an orange light with very little distribution in its spectrum. The new 600 W ParXtreme LEC conversion lamp produces a much whiter light with a higher spectrum and plenty of red tones. The spectral energy of ParXtreme is unparalleled in the horticultural market. The ParXtreme LEC lamp improves the production of essential oils and produces plants that do not stretch much during growth. In addition, plants will stay strong and healthy throughout their growing cycle.

Indeed, the light produced by this LEC lamp is perfect to keep plants healthy from start to finish of their vegetative growth and produce heavy and stiff flowers filled with trichomes during flowering. It is the first conversion lamp to provide optimal levels of spectral energy at all stages of plant growth, i.e. during both vegetative development and flowering, although its spectrum is more specific to flowering (3100 K). This characteristic makes it a bestin-class product, as it works with any 600 W ballast and has an E40 cap, so it can be used with most reflectors on the market without the need for special adapters or lamp holders.

DIAMOND MINER 300ML AND 700ML

Diamond Miner is a resin extractor manufactured by Mr. Hide Extracts® to produce Live Resin or BHO (Butane Hash Oil) with advanced modulation of pressure and water content. It can be pressurised at 10 Bar and contains a desiccant chamber that can be opened. Water can be extracted from the Live Resin while the system is under pressure. Live resin often contains a large amount of water because BHO extraction is made from frozen plant material and can

www.mrhideextracts.com www.mrhideseeds.com info@mrhideseeds.com 18

prevent the development of THCA crystals (‘diamonds’). For this reason, you often need to wait one month or more to create them. With Diamond Miner, crystal growth and HCFSE and HTFSE production usually takes place in 14 days without pressurisation! Nitrogen pressurization causes nucleation to occur faster and therefore create diamonds faster. The unit is made of 316 stainless steel and Pyrex, contains a safety valve and meters to make sure the system is sealed plus a desiccant chamber to remove the water. The Spanish-made Diamond Miner by Mr. Hide Extracts® is a leading edge system by and for professionals to produce THCA samples and work with maximum safety.

GHE FLORA SERIES® BECOMES TERRA AQUATICA TRIPART®

In 2020, Flora-Series®, the flagship fertiliser of GHE® will change its name to Terra Aquatica TriPart® (Grow – Micro – Bloom). At the last edition of Barcelona’s Spannabis, the renowned manufacturer of fertilisers, additives and cropping systems left its mark on visitors’ minds by unveiling its new identity as Terra Aquatica®. This new logo is shaped as a hexagonal blazon with the two initials T.A., whereas the old name GHE® will gradually fade away and no longer exist by 2022. Following the launch of this new brand last March, from January 2020 the range of organic fertilisers and mineral additives (Flora-Series, FloraDuo, FloraCoco, Ripen, FloraKleen, etc.) will be released with new labels and new names overtly indicating their use.

The manufacturer’s intention behind this move is to reassure consumers. Nothing has changed regarding products as formulas and manufacturing processes will still belong to them. On store shelves, however, products will be more clearly identified and the former name and brand GHE will remain visible. Why this change? GHE® is the European offshoot of General Hydroponics, a true institution for cannabis growers in the United States. In 2015, this Californian flagship was acquired by the American lawn and garden product giant Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. Regardless of purely financial considerations and in order to stay true to its work ethics, GHE has chosen to become independent and focus on its mainstays, i.e. products, plants and customers. The names of the other products will be announced in the coming weeks. Want to know more about the next steps? Visit www.TerraAquatica.com and/or the brand’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
