To afford marijuana, I had to learn how to grow it

I truly have had nothing but fantastic experiences with cannabis since trying it a couple of years back.

I’ll admit that I had trepidation for numerous years regarding the plant. I was raised in a fairly conservative area by parents who truly believed marijuana use would lead to heroin addiction. Although they might have eased up on their views towards the plant in recent years, they still easily dismiss its medical value on all fronts. By the time I made it to college, marijuana was offered to me no matter where I went. Still, it took me a long time to finally try the drug, and to this day I loathe myself for waiting this long. I had pent up anxiety setbacks that only became evident after noticing how much using cannabis would relax my nerves and melt away my terrible thoughts. I was sticking to indica strains that promote calmness and sedation over the sativa strains that tend to be more stimulating and psychoactive. As much as I adore marijuana, I can’t handle the extreme prices at the dispensaries. I’m using the plant medicinally, but the prices put the medicine at a place where very few people can access it and benefit from it’s wonderful effects. That’s when I got the whole plan to grow cannabis in my property. I saw a good amount of odd grow boxes on the internet that come equipped with lighting systems and hydroponic growth mediums. The plants are basically suspended a few inches below the surface of the water while an air pump continuously aerates it to replenish the roots and promote growth in the plants. Since I’m severely limited on funds I can only afford a grow box that fits approximately four plants in total. Hopefully once I get started with saving so much money after my first harvest, I can use those savings to purchase a much bigger grow operation for my personal use.
