Five Reasons Why: Grow Cannabis At Home
Plants are fun, and growing becomes the next big thing for millennials. With legalization rolling out around the country, home cannabis cultivation gains its moment, with more states and DC offering some form of cultivation provision.
If you are lucky to reside in one of the legal states, it is time to master a new hobby. Cultivation only seems impossible, but it is fun and engaging. Numerous educational materials are available online and offline to help beginners and seasoned growers. Oh, and in the long run, it can save you money. Here go five reasons why you should give it a try:
1. It is legal
All right, it depends on where you live, but today you can legally grow cannabis in some states and Washington DC. Just check the requirements for cultivation within your state and begin to grow.
Usually, you can cultivate 4-6 plants; depending on the state, these numbers can go up. Many states allow access to points where a potential grower can pick up legal seeds and clones for cultivation. It encourages home cultivators to try growing in their gardens or at home.
2. It is up to you what to grow
You can become your own master grower with total control over cultivation process. You can experiment on your own and eventually develop a system that works for you.
Growers themselves decide if they want any particular pesticides, fungicides, or fertilizers to be used in cultivation. It is especially beneficial for medical patients who can control a safety level of their medicine and avoid unnecessary health risks connected to the third-party production processes.
3. It is fun
Start with cannabis, and most likely you would want to try out something else. Other crops may bring you joy and, sometimes, food. It also allows you to sharpen your gardening skills and open many job opportunities. No kidding.
Successful growers possess a whole bunch of useful skills; they know how to handle electricity, plumbing, and carpentry. The hobby may seem daunting to master but beware: once you start growing, you develop an addiction. And it can take you places!
4. It is a pure economy
Yes, it seems expensive. But think a little: it is a good investment that will pay itself off over time. Also, there is plenty opportunities to start on any budget. Usually, one harvest is enough to pay back the initial investment. Startup costs are inevitable, but over time they will dissipate. Home growing will ensure you have the best cannabis for the best price — and you will never depend on dispensary’s costs again.
5. It is easy to learn
Today, you can find whatever information you need to start home cultivation. The quality and quantity of educational sources expand, and new books, magazines, websites, and forums offer the bounty of valuable knowledge. You can even find podcasts dedicated to cannabis cultivation and open workshops to meet and share knowledge with fellow growers.
It is a perfect moment to get started. Don’t hesitate — what can be better than find your new hobby and create your perfect cannabis strain?
