Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"My passion for growing cannabis came real early. My father taught me to grow cannabis when I was 8 years old. With some Panama red seeds, he brought back from South America. I tried a few times on my own, but it was still illegal then. So I could never keep it going. I began my new journey with cannabis growing almost 1 year ago. I grow it mainly so I don't have to purchase my meds from a store. I had a severe accident where I dislocated my left hip, shoulder, and broke 1 vertebra and smashed a disk."
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"Getting my indoor environment has been the single hardest hurdle to jump. That and the curing process is the second thing I find difficult with growing my own."
What makes growing rewarding?
"I find just sitting amongst my flowers listening to music, meditating, and tending to my garden chores is cathartic."
Favorite strain to cultivate?
"I haven't found a favorite strain just quite yet."
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"Use solid genetics and get everything you need all your supplies before you start growing."
