All I can say is that this writers work heralds a fresh dawn for ALL marijuana cultivators and I have been growing for more than ten years. This is the class of book that I have always wanted; a grow guide with modern growing information, technology, the right technique and noted RESOURCES: specifically where and how to get high-quality seeds with superior THC quantities. Do not miss this one if you are new on the scene or want to improve your grow like I did. IMO, this is a very important contribution to the marijuana cultivation scene.

This Swiss recently decriminalised cultivation and now we are allowed to grow for personal use. I got this book because a friend bought two and gave one to me. I think this book is much better than most people are saying because it is very much new stuff. This book is good for me and you because it is very much a gardening book with chapters also about botany. I have some experience with books like this before. Some of the books are more botany type with science about the plant. This book is about growing the cannabis. There are not very many good books that do this right but this book does it very well indeed. It is important to know much about what this writer is talking about and you can see examples in many of the pictures. I think people will learn soon that this is the book to get. I hope so because it is an important book for everybody and very new.

The Cannabis Grow Bible by Greg Green is the first MUST READ book for any cannabis smoker/grower/breeder/enthusiast. Where other books have failed this book has achieved. On first view I thought the book was a little bit too big for a beginner to consume but after reading the first three chapters I was delighted to find that this was more than just your average grow guide. What Greg Green has done is to mix good growing information along with good growing advice while explaining the cannabis plants life cycle in over twenty healthy and highly illustrated chapters... The SOG and ScrOG systems look amazing and are highly understandable for the first time in the history of any cannabis grow book! This is why the book is a must read for anybody. I have never seen another grow book come even close to revealing some of the most important facts in cannabis production... Overall a stunning read and a massive improvement on ANY cannabis grow book out there. Write on Greg Green!

This book does not remind me of anything I have read before. It looks a way more professional than most for these types of books. It has a very workable plan to produce the best results in the smallest of spaces to big basement grows if you want. The strategies are clearly laid out and explained in sufficient detail. Readers can find plenty of pictures, diagrams and illustrations with instructions. It is very motivational. The clear and easy writing style should appeal to anybody. Good luck.

A great book based around debunking everything preached before about growing grass and then shows the results of some good growing. It is no longer just about producing a one in a hundred photograph magazine quality plant, but having lots of them and with the potency to back it up.

Greg has a strong incline towards enforcing the right genetics and then covering all the nuts and bolts about growing those genetics. In other words, most growers are just starting with rubbish and ending up with rubbish. He is also into optimizing yields every time for the long term. Greg has his science nailed down flat, and urges a complete revision of how you might have tried growing before. In other words, do it this way and you will not be disappointed.

Ok, so stoners might think the breeding section at the end of the book a little too much for them. Greg, we understand that you have done your homework. You laboured hard to get us this information. But do we really need to know this advanced stuff? Maybe for breeding, if we want to produce our own stock. While that stuff is maybe too hard, it is still very welcome to have it there so that we know he knows he is legitimate.

I love that Greg just presses home how to do it right and just arm-twists all the junk you have heard and read into surrender. He just shows some things that make you think, Duh? Why where growers not taught sometime so simple to understand before?

The organization and presentation of the book does not suck and that counts a lot. It isn't like a pipe beaten old-timer has tried to churn out what they think is best. Greg is an author. His knowledge of cultivation is down on paper. He succeeds with hardly any failings. You don't need to sort through the pages to find the information. It is there, word for word of it.

If you like the "start with good genetics and optimize them" ideology of this book, I strongly recommend that you try and eventually grow some mean Jack Herer from Sensi Seeds.

Why do other book authors have to come here and bash this writer around in order to sell their own book? Guess trying to hop on the bandwagon is a sure sign of who is going in the right direction. I found out about this book because of its publicity (It is advertised in some well known cannabis places), websites and support system (Yes, it comes with a support system for asking questions.), plus the fact that people are using it to get what they need. This book is also distributed by the exact same distributors of all the other cannabis and marijuana books. If you want to prove to yourself that the reviews are genuine then all you have to do is click on the users names and see what else they have reviewed. As you can see they are all genuine and probably people who have used this book and its website. If they like this book then what more can you say? I see nothing to contradict why they like it. I can see plenty to contradict the negative reviews. I just used the amazon java review show order to put the lowest ratings first. It shows that this is the same guy. Now onto the book. Will you get what you need? Yes and more. End of debate there. Is it the most comprehensive marijuana guide available? Yes and more so. Is it the newest marijuana guide available? Absolutely. How accurate is the information here? This is a 100% grow book written by a grower, not a magazine journalist, not a photographer, not a marijuana activist group and not someone who does not know anything. Why? Because of the quality of the information between the pages. The book can easily sell itself on the information alone. To give this book 1 star is childish. To give it 2 stars would be inappropriate. To give it 3 stars would be an injustice when you compare it other books that are out there. To give it 4 stars would be much more suitable and 5 stars for those who really learned something useful and got those results they wanted. I give it 4 stars because it gave me lots to read and every paragraph has something to learn from. I dock it a star for not doing more on the outdoor front to match the wealth of information on the indoor front (*Edit this. I just gave it 5 stars instead. If this is the best book on the subject then I will give it what it deserves. Just compare it in the book store to see for yourself). This is probably the most definitive book on the subject to date and it shows. It shows in some of the negative reviews here and in the positive ones. The negative reviews are mostly - Do not buy this book because its photographs are grainy or Do not buy this book because it is too good to be true. The fact is that the photographs where taken by award winning Mr.Grossman (one of the main reasons why I got this book). His trichome microphotography is outstanding. He even has shots of seeds germinating just out of their shells. It is the only book to have a full color Hash Making section - Strike that - It is the only book to have any photographed hash making section be it black and white or color. The color section even has photographs of world's foremost leading breeding outfits in Amsterdam. It even has color procedures in progress. It is the most illustrated book on the topic, ever. The only person to give this book a negative review is the exact same person doing it over and over again to sell his own dated and inferior work. I actually own the other books too and this one stands out as the one. It is no wonder why he can only resort to bashing other growers if his material is substandard and can not live up to the kind of hype that this one generates. This is the book. Like other reviews have said it does not ramble like other books. It is all growing, growing and more growing. The self proclaimed experts have been razzled by it. It contradicts nearly everything they have to say. You want to know the bottom line? This book will force them to update their work. Watch as this book is implemented in anything new that they try to bring out. It is that revolutionary. It is that important and most significantly of all, this book is the only cannabis cultivation book that is not self-published. (Yes, read that again.), All of the other cannabis cultivation books are self-published. The writers own their own publishing outfits. The information in this book is second to none and it shows. If the only recourse other authors have is to scaremonger people from buying this book then you have to question the validity of their own goals. This writer wants to see people grow more of their own dope. That is a worldly endeavor that should not be condemned. Shame on them.

This book is highly resourceful giving you everything you could ever want to know about growing marijuana (and even more information you need to know about after your first time). I would definitely recommend this to anyone remotely interested in pot (which I would hope would be everyone who uses pot).

Green's research is so thorough regarding every aspect of marijuana growing, from creating seeds and clones to how to breed plants and hydroponics that you can't help but feel like giving it a go yourself. It inspires you to grow.

The reason why I say this is because the produce in this book is beyond anything I have seen outside of a magazine cover like High Times and yet you can see home growers doing just that in this book.

If you really feel you might have a marijuana green thumb then this book is a reality you should look into.

I thought this book was going to be a quick cash-in for the medical cannabis scene in Canada but got it anyway. I actually found that I underestimated it and probably enjoyed it all the more because of that. Just to get the message across in this review I have to say that this is more of a brain book for marijuana growers that for stoners in general, although stoners may like it.
The most striking thing about this book is the obvious time and effort that has gone into it. It is not just any old by the numbers marijuana grow book and does try a new approach to the genre. It is healthy addition to anyone's marijuana collection and certainly contains extra stuff that you will not find in other books like breeding techniques, creating female seeds, water hash extraction and seed banks.
It is a helpful book.

I think if you want dense buds you need to read this and apply the information it advocates. I think breeding is of primary importance before you consider growing or you are wasting your time. This book just sets you up with the conditions you need to have some dense nuggets within a few months. I mean little chunks of bud that are heavy in your palm. Potent and heavy buds are what everybody wants and this book can help you pull out the type of baggy that just impresses everybody. If that is your goal then this book will help you realise it. It is very easy to waste your time and money doing it any another way. Don't waste your time. Do it this way.

As a legal Medicinal User and activist I have found this book a great reference not only for myself but also for the masses. This book can help an 80yr old Grandma make & produce her life giving medicine! It isn't just retread basics either, they go into more advanced techniques for higher production & safety. I use it often as a reference as you would an dictionary or recipe. When I teach growing classes at the local Co-op this book is our text book.

The only con is that it doesn't go to deep into the cutting edge technologies. Hydroponics has just enough info but could be better, Aeroponics and Ultrasonic misting are not covered in any depth to help you grow. (hence only 4 stars)

The author is intelligent and can write sentences with a subject, predicate, and correct punctuation. He also finishes his thoughts and covers issues in the proper order unlike most popular grow books.

(stay away from Ed Rosenthal books, he is lost most of the time.

To sum up: a must have!!!
