Growing Stories with @mostlysafe8
⚡️A Q&A session with your friendly neighborhood gardener
🌱Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"The first was my back injury in 2011. I worked as a Surgical Assistant over the past 25 years, so modern Western Medicine has always been in the forefront of my care and well-being. A friend recommended Cannabis as an alternative - and he himself was the example to show the beneficial effects. I started to investigate Cannabis, which led to the second event that spurred me to grow my own."
🌱Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"Finding a place to grow was the hardest part. Space Buckets were the compromise. Instead of having a large tent that would take up the majority of one room, a Space Bucket would take up a 1 foot by 1 foot footprint - and could be moved easily should it be necessary."
🌱What makes growing rewarding?
"The amount of money I save every month! I averaged $400.00 per month on Cannabis flower alone. Money I now save as it costs pennies on the dollar to grow your own, and you have the Independence and Self-Sufficiency that cannot be found being leashed to a Dispensary."
🌱Favorite strain to cultivate?
"Indicas! Girl Scouts Cookies is my go-to strain for pain relief and a mellow mindset. Since Indicas have a higher ratio of CBD to THC than Sativas, I find myself leaning towards this strain."
🌱What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"Relax! Cannabis is called a weed for a reason: it wants to grow! I have learned over the years that Cannabis not only thrives under perfect conditions, it does quite well in bad conditions too. She will grow just fine as long as you understand what she is saying to you by her growth - and act accordingly."
