There are numerous advantages to cultivating your own flower yet only a small percentage of people ever decide to do so.

1) Save Money

The most common reason given as to why someone has not started growing their own cannabis is the initial financial investment required. Whether you are growing indoors or outdoors, however, you’ll likely earn back your investment after your first harvest. After that, the cannabis you grow will continue to be far less expensive than when purchased from a dispensary. Every plant grown means money saved. 

 

2) Have Complete Control Over The Growing Process

When you grow your own cannabis you get to decide everything about the growing process. You get to choose how to grow your flower, be it in soil containers, raised beds, indoors or outdoors, it is all up to you. This can also include not using herbicides or pesticides in your growing process as well. Finding organic cannabis in a dispensary can be a difficult task depending on where you live, but if that’s how you want your cannabis, you can be sure no harmful chemicals were used by cultivating it yourself. 

 

3) Pick or Breed Your Own Strains

When you grow your own cannabis, you have the choice to start with whatever seeds you wish. Depending on the type of cannabis you enjoy, there are plenty of options available. You also have the option to cross-breed strains if you wish and create something unique. This is an option you simply don’t have visiting a dispensary. 

 

4) Learn An Enjoyable Hobby

Gardening, growing flowers, or other types of botany are often done simply for the enjoyment of it. The average person who grows tomatoes in their garden does gain some satisfaction with being able to eat the fruits and vegetables of their labor, but for the most part, it is the actual act of growing life that is fulfilling. Tending to your plants can be a relaxing and enjoyable task that allows you a break in the day. 

 

5) Reduced Environmental Impact

While it is true the environmental impacts of growing cannabis are far less destructive than other industries, there is still environmental degradation that occurs. Whether it is large swaths of land being cleared for growing or the use of pesticides and herbicides, cannabis growing can have negative impacts on surrounding ecosystems. By growing your own in a home garden or indoors, however, you are greatly reducing any environmental damage which could occur. 

 

6) Access Parts Of The Plant Normally Trimmed Away

When you purchase cannabis at a dispensary, they remove all the stems. Growing your own cannabis gives you access to all the seeds, leaves, and stems you don’t have access to when purchasing from a dispensary, however. You might not think you have much use for stems but after a while, when you have enough, you can use those stems to make edibles or tea. All of this will continue to save you money in the long-run. 

 

7) It Is Easier Than You Think

Perhaps the number one reason for some people to start growing their own cannabis is that it is actually pretty easy. It is much easier than you think and there are numerous resources available to help you get started. For beginners, growing indoor kits are available for purchase that are basically foolproof. You are closer to becoming a cannabis green thumb than you think!
