I know a bit about plants. I also know that most plants, marijuana included, have SOME human characteristics. The number one is adapting to different circumstances. For ex, if you add ENOUGH food coloring of INDUSTRIAL strength, it'll give you a tint to your plants stalk and stems and in some instances, your leaves. PROVEN FACT although too much can possible clog your roots and this kill off your plant. SO!!! With that being said, I feel there is a SAFE way to get glucose (sugar) into a plant to improve taste. I feel there has to be a SAFE way to alter the taste of a plant just like if you FLUSH CHEMICALS BEFORE HARVEST, IT WILL REDUCE THE CHEM TASTE in a plant. I'm currently in my first year of school for botony;-) and I'm currently looking for techniques to ALTER the taste of marijuana. I currently have 4 plants that I have started. All from a great strain. I plan to "experiment" with AT LEAST 2 of them. IF YOU HAVE ANY TIPS OR ANY ADVICE, please share OR, if you found something to do this, let me know.
