Since all the vibe around cannabis has become more relaxed now, a lot of people are getting into growing their own marijuana at home. Long gone is the time when marijuana was a topic of taboo with unconditional restrictions. But now, the scenario has turned upside down. In fact, with its legalization in so many states, it has become very acceptable now in society to grow and consume weed. Not only this, but we also have a lot of educational material available online now, regarding the subject. And hence, if you haven’t started yet, it’s the perfect time to consider growing your own weed.
But why should you grow your own marijuana when you can simply buy it? Why trouble yourself so much?
Well, yes, you have the accessibility now. But is it really enough? I guess, not. There’s so much more to our favorite plant. And there are many reasons why you should consider growing it yourself.
Here’s a list of a few. And if you are wondering, “getting high” isn’t really on it. So, shall we start?
You have the Control
We’re still in the time where it’s very hard to find where your weed actually came from, And not to mention the way it’s handled or even adulterated sometimes. So, in times like these, growing your own cannabis can surely provide you with the control you want over your product.
When you grow your own marijuana, you have full control over what type of seeds you are using, how you’re harvesting them, drying them, curing them, and finally, consuming them. And in this way, you have the power over the quality of the product you are consuming.
You Save some Bucks
Whether you are a medical user or a recreational one, if you consume frequently, growing your own marijuana can save you a lot of your hard-earned money. You can balance your initial investment in just one or two harvests, very easily. And not to mention, you won’t have to meet those shady dealers anymore. You’ll have the access to some high-quality weed just anytime you want.
Well, yes, it all depends on how much you actually consume, too. But don’t worry. Even a single plant or two can provide you with a nice, steady flow of marijuana that can cut back your weed-related expenses a lot.
It’s Much Easier than you Think
There’s a reason we call it “weed.” The plant is quite easy to grow and can withstand any abrupt climatic changes with great ease. Of course, things may differ from strain to strain. Growing Amnesia Haze is certainly gonna be different from growing a Dutch Treat. And so, you gotta do some research before you pick up your seed.
It’s always better to start small, obviously. Pick up your pace slowly, and aim for a bit higher with every try. You should also note that a lot also depends on how good you actually are in this. You don’t want your plant to just survive but to thrive and provide some amazing results.
It’s a Nice Hobby
Growing marijuana is just like growing any other bud. It’s a really nice and relaxing hobby. And not just that, when you are growing a cannabis plant, you also learn various new and diverse skills along the way, like carpentry, plumbing, electrical work etc. Furthermore, growing any type of plant is beneficial for your health too. It’s a very active hobby. And it also keeps you connected to nature.
One more good thing about this: you can start as small as you want. Just get some rich soil and a few good seeds, and you’re good to go. If you like it, upgrade your toolkit. If not, leave it. As simple as that.
