1. Save money in the long run
Buying home growing equipment helps you save money in the long run. You’ll no longer rely on other outside factors to supply you with bud which means you won’t have to spend any money on buying other people’s bud.
The initial investment in proper growing equipment can be surprisingly low as some starter kits go for just a couple hundred bucks. If you can afford to cash out on better gear - you can also expect better returns on your investment once it’s time to chop your plants.
2. Quality control
Knowing how the stuff you’re smoking is cultivated might not be your primary concern, but if you do have any - growing your own bud is the perfect solution for those worries. When growing at home you’ll have complete control over how your plants are treated and what type of conditions they are grown in.
If you’re more the all-organic type and want to stick with homemade ingredients you can. Alternatively if you want to experiment with hydroponic systems and control every little detail for optimal results, you also can!
3. Develop valuable skills
By learning how to grow cannabis plants you’ll be learning a valuable skill that’s now becoming more and more applicable as cannabis is getting legalized across the world. Learning how to grow will allow you to quickly rise in early industry and who knows what opportunities this could bring.
It really takes just a couple years to develop certain skills and the ability to recognize what’s going on with your plants. Cannabis is extremely easy to grow on a basic level, but it takes patience and passion to truly separate yourself from the herd and grow outstanding bud! But, once you’re there - your results will speak for themselves!
4. Explore varieties
You will be able to choose exactly what strains you want to grow and then cross and experiment with those in order to create new ones that best fit your taste. With the access to the Internet you’ll be able to find seeds for just about any strain that’s been grown in the past few decades!
5. Easier than you think
Growing is actually much easier than many people think. You can always start small with just a few plants and work your way up from there. With the latest advancements in technology, automating your grow operation has never been easier.
This makes it much easier to scale up your grow simply by upgrading to a bigger tent or something of that sort. With so many options out there ranging from hydroponic setups, to different mixes of soil and other mediums - surely you’ll find something that fits your needs and capabilities!
6. Growing is fun
Growing can be a time consuming hobby, but in a good sense. It brings joy and pride, and many growers have said that noticing progress and seeing how their plants develop gives them the “butterfly feeling on the inside”.
You will definitely have fun reaping the benefits of your efforts, as well as having fun on the way along. The saying “best for last” really applies in growing because you get to enjoy the stuff you worked on for months and share it with the people you love.
