The Sinsemilla Technique was published in 1992 by Kayo, and is aimed at mostly beginner to mid-level growers. What Kayo brought to the Western world in 1992 was a detailed explanation of the separation of the male and female plants to allow for a better yield. Until then, this method was mostly unknown to the Western world.

Although this book might not be the one for you if you are a more advanced grower, it is a good resource for getting inspired and contains a wealth of information. It is more for those just starting out, and contains a lot of photos and diagrams to make it a little easier to get on the way.

This is a book written by Jorge Cervantes. It is a very comprehensive book written for those who want to grow, but not most likely aimed at beginners. It is quite advanced and targets specifically those who are looking to grow marijuana for a medical reason. The author admits that you have at least successfully grown one plant before, so if you’re just starting out this one might not be for you.

It is a really good resource if you want to brush up your skills, although he does approve the use of pesticides. Even if you disagree, it is worth having a read for the wealth of information available in it on growing indoor  and outdoor medicinal marijuana.
