Should I grow my own weed at home? Here’s what you need to know

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • The Canadian government, which is likely to legalize cannabis nationwide this summer, said it planned to allow home grows of up to four marijuana plants, which might yield 5lb in a year to an experienced grower, and is certainly consumable by an experienced smoker.
  • Cannabis is a sexed plant; the drug is the flower from the female.
  • For the home grower, this matters much less, and Graf says it helps someone develop their appreciation for the plant.
  • With strong weed no longer hard to find, home growing is a chance for connoisseurs to grow for CBD, a chemical commonly associated with the plants medicinal properties, or for a plants terpene profile (bouquet).
  • Instead, the state will allow possession and home growing, up to six plants, including two flowered females.
