Marijuana Seeds South Carolina: A Home Growers Guide
South Carolina is the eastern most state in the deep south, bordered by North Carolina and separated from Georgia by the Savannah River. The eighth state to ratify the constitution, the first state to vote to leave the union and the fourth state readmitted to the union after the American Civil War. That’s all history though and that isn’t what we’re here to talk about. Instead, let’s chat about pot and how to grow it in South Carolina. Prospective and experienced cultivators can Contact Us for more information on seeds of strains they may want to grow at home.
The Carolina Reaper. Sounds ominous right? Well it is, it is considered to be the world’s hottest pepper. To put that into perspective, the standard jalapeno rates around four hundred thousand Scoville Heat Units or SHU. The infamous Carolina Reaper tips the scales at over two million SHU. If you are curious but not willing to undergo the torture, you can view it from a safe distance in Fort Mills at the Smoking Ed’s Pepper eating Challenge. Ed is a South Carolina legend, owner of PuckerButt Pepper Company and the man responsible for unleashing the Reaper on SC. The contest is open to anyone unstable enough to submit to the pain and test their tolerance, but buyer beware because entering as a competitor may come with consequences.
From one heat to another, let’s talk BBQ. Not many people know that South Carolina is reputed to be the birthplace of Barbeque cooking. Many places make claims to the cooking technique, however, recorded history tells of how the Native Americans of the area taught settlers how to spit roast a boar over hot coals. BBQ cooking has since become a SC staple and the state hosts hundreds of thousands of tourists a year seeking the sticky fingered and smoky flavored deliciousness. The state even has its own distinct sauce that is served from Columbia to Charleston and beyond. Carolina Gold, as it is called, is a meat tenderizing mix of mustard, brown sugar and spices. It will make you hungry just reading about it!
On a different note, did you know that South Carolina is home to the only natural Monkey colony in the United States. Morgan Island is a two thousand acre barrier island that supports a Rhesus Monkey colony numbering over three thousand animals. The island is inaccessible to humans, however, the colony can be observed by boat or from nearby islands. Monkeys are cute but SC is also home to another more terrifying creature, well, the legend of one. The legend of the Lizard Man began when a young man pulled off the road to fix a flat tire next to the Scape Ore Swamp near Bishopville. When he exited his vehicle a seven foot tall, three fingered scaly creature emerged from the swamp and proceeded to thrash the young man’s car. He reported the incident to police and his car was recovered with deep slashes and dents in it. The incident took place in the eighties, however, since the first recorded one there have been dozens more reported all ending in destroyed vehicles. Someone needs to get the lizard man an indica strain to chill out with. Weed Seeds has all the indica seeds a grower could ever need!
