Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"Medical, I had back surgery (L4-L5 fused) due to an injury and was on pain medication for over a year, not wanting to risk addiction and the downhill spiral I turned to cannabis to elevate prescription drugs and the side effects."
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"I was having a hard time with flushing before my harvest, I was tasting nutrients still. It was trial and error until I found out how much water to flush my plants with. "
What makes growing rewarding? "It's creating a new life and journey with each seed that's planted, and knowing I can count on myself for relieving pain and not prescription drugs."
Favorite strain to cultivate? "So far it's been Cinderella99. It's been a hardy and great tasting strain for me, it takes care of my nerve pain without too much couchlock."
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there? "Research, do your research. Before I started I spent a fair amount of time reading and watching videos from growers. Take what you learn and figure out what works for you. "
