Jeff Ditchfield’s Cannabis Cultivator, A Step-by-Step Guide to Growing Marijuana

Novice Rating: ★★★☆ (4 1/2 stars) - A good first book for those novice users with no mentor or teacher to lean on.  The book assumes you have access to materials.

Veteran Rating: ★ (1 star) - If you already know what you are doing, this book is only good if you need material to mentor a novice.

While the other two basic how-to books presented thus far are mainly for stealth and ducking law enforcement surveillance, this book fairly well assumes that you can get all of the suggested items easily (and you can from HydroFarm or your local hydroponics shop).  Not a lot of guerilla gardening in this book.

With that said, it has some of the BEST photos of taking and trimming clones from a mother plant.  Short of having someone show you how it is done, this is the next best thing.

Also of note are instructions for ice water hash collection and a small section with cannabis recipes and medicated cannabis cream for topical dermal use.

A much less expensive alternative to Mediman’s Marijuana Made Simple and more up-to-date than Ed Rosenthal’s Easy Marijuana Gardening.  Presently available for under $10.

Jeff has a new book, Jeff Ditchfield and Mel Thomas’s, The Medical Cannabis Guidebook: The Definitive Guide To Using and Growing Medicinal Marijuana.  Check out that review.
