I have no desire to grow my own cannabis.
I tried it once, during the COVID lockdown, and I did not like the experience.
It was much more labor-intensive than I expected, and took a hefty investment of money for the proper lighting and growing equipment. The results were poor, and I got raggedy looking weed for all of my efforts. I realized that some things are best left to the professionals. I can make my own breakfast, but if I want great biscuits and gravy I need to find a good diner. If I want quality cannabis products, I need to stop wasting time at home and go to the local cannabis dispensary. Let the marijuana professionals handle it! You may not know this, but there is an insane amount of science that goes into crafting the premium cannabis strains that we know and love. Some of these cannabis strains are decades old, and botanists keep perpetuating, cloning, and improving them. Purple Haze, Acapulco Gold, Mowie Wowie, and others were developed in the 50s and 60s, and we still smoke them today. When I think about all the science and history behind cannabis, I feel like an idiot for trying to grow scrub weed plants in buckets of dirt in my garage. I think it’s great that it is now legal for me to grow cannabis plants at home, because this is a right every person should have. But I would much rather buy my cannabis at the local dispensary (even if it is a little expensive) than try to grow it.
