Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"My wife and I have used cannabis for recreational and medical use for many years. After I received a medical marijuana card in 2010, I wanted to grow our own to ensure we were getting the best meds possible and know they weren't spiked with anything or overly chemically grown."
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"At first just learning as much as possible and what to do for each situation seemed like a lot such as spider mites and how to feed your plants, which grow equipment you want to use etc... but after a while, it all came as second nature."
What makes growing rewarding?
"Finally getting to smoke your own supply and not having to go purchase any."
Favorite strain to cultivate?
"I like cheese strains because the buds are really dense and they grow good as a bush. Not all lanky like kush strains and it's a really dank bud!!"
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"Find a grower that you can ask questions instead of wasting your time on the wrong path."
