It’s springtime, which means a lot of us have gardening on the brain. You may be considering growing your own cannabis, but are not sure if it will pay off the way you want it to. There are a million reasons why you should start growing your own ganja, but for the sake of time, I’ll only go into what I think are the best reasons.
It’s Less Expensive
You might not think that growing your own ganja would be less expensive than just going to the dispensary, especially since growing equipment can be pretty pricey, but it is. What you have to consider is that once you get good growing equipment, that’s the largest sum that you’ll have to drop all at once. You can make all of that back should you decide to sell your crop yields to a dispensary. Have you really thought about how much you spend at the dispensary each month, or each week? If you’re the type to drop half of your paycheck, then it’s time to consider growing your own. Then you’ll have the funds for other things that you probably need.
You Get A Sense Of Pride From Growing Your Own Ganja
I grow a lot of my own herbs( like basil, cilantro, etc), and there is a certain sense of pride and accomplishment that you get from successfully cultivating and growing your own plants, and then getting to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Especially that last one. Watching your plants grow evokes feelings similar to that of parents watching their kids grow up. I’m getting all misty eyed just thinking about it.
You May Meet Other Growers
Growers like to keep their activities on the DL, so it’s pretty difficult to meet one, that is until you start growing. Then you’re going to meet all kinds of growers, because growers love talking to fellow growers about growing. You’ll pick up some tricks of the trade that will most certainly benefit you. Also, it’s fun to make new friends!
You Can Do A Lot With The Leftovers
There are a lot of things that you can do with your leftover trim. For instance, you can make tons and tons of cannabutter, which leads to mountains of delicious baked goods. You can also juice raw cannabis and do a cannabis cleanse. You can make tinctures, lotions, and all kinds of neat things. There is much more to the cannabis plant than just the buds (though those are the best part). The best part is that it’s all free!
Who Knows…You Might Be Really Good At It
You never know, you might have a gift for growing, in which case you should definitely be sharing that gift with the world, not to mention your bank account! Seriously though, if you are at all interested in botany, or genetics, you should certainly consider growing your own ganja. Growers are superstars in the cannabis world. You could end up hitting the big time. That would be way cooler than whatever you are doing right now.
