There are many reasons why you should think about growing your own herb. In this article, we choose our six favorites. But among them, you will not find “putting yourself”! Read this article and discover why we should all try to grow our own cannabis plant at least once in a lifetime.
Regardless of whether it is allowed or not in the country where you live, today, the cultivation of cannabis is increasingly accepted by society. There are many reasons why you should think about growing your own cannabis. In this article, you will discover some of our favorites!
CANNABIS IS MORE ACCESSIBLE THAN EVER
It must be said that, in general, the way in which the issue of cannabis is approached is quieter than before. Regardless of the current restrictions on cannabis cultivation at home, we have made great progress since the time of the categorical ban. In addition to this, there is more and more educational material on the internet and in other formats. This not only applies to information about cannabis itself but also how to grow it well at home! Therefore, the time has come for you to think about growing your own weed. But of course, the first key decision is which good quality seeds you are going to grow.
WHY SHOULD YOU THINK ABOUT CULTIVATING YOUR OWN GRASS
In addition to accessibility, there are other reasons why you should think about growing your own marijuana. At the end of the list, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it before!
YOU HAVE TOTAL CONTROL
It’s always good to know exactly what you smoke and how they produced it. It is still difficult to know where marijuana is purchased from the street (not to mention how it is handled and/or adulterated), so the issue is more important than ever.
Without a doubt, growing your own cannabis plant gives you total control over the entire process, from seed germination to harvest, drying, curing and, finally, consumption. You will know exactly how your plants have grown, including fundamental things such as the type of fertilizers/nutrients used (in case they are used). In this way, you will have full power to establish the quality standards of your crop.
YOU CAN EXPERIENCE
If you decide to grow your own marijuana, you can try the number of cultivation methods and training techniques there are. Of course, it will depend on what you are willing to invest in economically. After all, each type of crop requires different care and costs. That said if you’ve always wanted to try hydroponics like the one you’ve seen on the internet, or apply a special training technique like topping or super cropping, if you grow at home you will have the opportunity to try it!
On the other hand, you can also experiment with different parts of the plant. Growing a whole plant, not just the buds, provides you with a lot of extra plant material to consume. The leaves of sugar, for example, are loaded with trichomes and can be used to make some rich or edible hashish. Even the fan leaves, which have fewer cannabinoids, can be used to make very healthy juices or as a rolling paper to make you some breasts with real hemp. Then, of course, if you have time and energy, you can use regular seeds to grow your own cannabis varieties. In other words, growing and processing marijuana allows you to be creative throughout the process.
YOU SAVE MONEY
If you smoke regularly, for recreational or medicinal purposes, growing your own marijuana ultimately means saving A LOT of money. Even one or two crops can return the initial investment in material and energy. Not to mention that you will have a great harvest when you feel like it, without having to catch in the street.
Of course, everything will depend on the amount of grass you consume on average, but even growing one or two plants each time could give you a constant flow of grass that will significantly reduce what you usually spend on marijuana. Growing your own cannabis also means that you will gradually become aware of the costs involved in the process, such as energy, water, etc. In most cases, it will make you more careful in your consumption habits, once you know the effort it requires.
This may be the most important reason of all. If you enjoy doing something, it always brings you great satisfaction and you will begin to see difficulties as opportunities to improve. In many ways, growing cannabis is like growing any other plant: it can be a way to spend your free time in a pleasant and relaxing way. Along the way, you will learn many things, from designing a complete cultivation system to a little carpentry, and some plumbing and electrical skills.
The good thing about this hobby is that you can start with little, you just need good seeds and good soil. Only if you see that your passion for cultivation increases over time, then get a good toolkit. In addition, growing marijuana is good for your health: it is a meditative and active hobby that does good for both the body and the mind, especially if you do it outdoors. Not to mention that you can practice this hobby at almost any age and in virtually any condition.
IT’S MORE LIKELY AND DISCRETE OF WHAT YOU THINK
It is no accident that cannabis is also known as “weed”: this species of plant is really easier to grow than you think. It is quite strong and resistant and can withstand even sudden changes in weather conditions without throwing in the towel. Of course, things vary greatly from one strain to another. For example, cultivating North Thunderfuck is completely different from having to take care of an Amnesia Haze! Therefore, do a little research before buying a particular seed and make sure that the variety you want is suitable for the climate in which you live, and how much time and energy you are willing to devote.
As usual, it is better to start with a little and then play a little harder, aiming a little higher each time. Another aspect to keep in mind is that, although cannabis is a strong and resistant plant, the end result will vary greatly depending on how good father/mother you are. You want your cannabis plant to survive the growth cycle, but you also want it to develop as well as possible and produce lots of bulbous and incredible buds.
YOU CONNECT WITH NATURE AGAIN
Taking care of your own herb means having the opportunity to observe a beautiful, but slow, maturation process. If you dedicate the necessary time to closely observe the plant in each phase of growth, you will learn to see how it develops and to know what it needs in each phase.
But observing is only one element of the learning process! You must respond to the behavior and growth stage of your plant, which sometimes means doing nothing. Other times, it means having the confidence to take action against threats such as nutrient deficiencies and diseases. In general, when you grow, you invest a lot in the life cycle of your plant. When you try the final product, you will know that those buds also have a piece of you. It’s time to be proud of what you created!
