It’s a new year and for many that comes with resolutions. Some people want to lose weight while others want to stop smoking. Others, however, are opting for making a resolution to grow their own cannabis in 2019. There are many hempsational reasons as to why this very well could be the best resolution anyone could make. Here are five reasons why the team at Roottie highly supports anyone who makes a New Year resolution to grow their own cannabis at home!
Choices Choices Choices
If you live in Canada you’re probably tired of the lack of variety in products available for purchase. This is especially true for recreational consumers. Even the cannabis seeds that are available to buy online are quite limited. Between the lack of product available and the lack of choices when there are products, many consumers are left with no other choice than to make a resolution to grow their own. This is excellent because you can obtain cannabis seeds in hundreds of different varieties. The best part is you can even cultivate them to perfection at home in most provinces.
In states throughout the United States, many people are also choosing to do the same where it is allowed. This isn’t so much due to the shortage of variety on the shelves but rather the lack of consistency. In particular, for many, it is hard to consistently obtain the specific genetics that works the best for their specific goals. By growing your own, you can obtain the genetics that are best for you, and ensure that you always have it on hand.
Quality and Safety Are Key
Just like with any other industry quality and safety is a concern as it should be with anything that goes in your body. By making a resolution to grow your own cannabis at home, you can ensure that you only utilize growing methods and products that you feel comfortable having touch a product that you will be ingesting or inhaling. Canada has been plagued with product recalls in the cannabis sector as have many different states throughout the United States. By growing your own, these recalls will not impede your ability to have consistent quality and most of all safe cannabis.
Save the Green by Growing Your Own Green
Let’s face it no matter where you live if you’re reading this chances are cannabis is not cheap. This is especially true if you are a medical cannabis patient that requires daily utilization of cannabis. This is also true if you are like me and smoke a S#!T ton of weed. By growing your own cannabis at home, you can save a lot of money! While there is a little bit of upfront investment to obtain everything needed, it will quickly pay for itself. This is especially true if you are in the U.S. where some cannabis taxes exceed 35%.
Make Your Own Medicine
By growing your own cannabis at home, not only can you have bud on hand, but you can also make your own cannabis medicines. From cannabis concentrates and tinctures to topical lotions and salves, many cultivators are choosing to make their own medicine rather than buying it from a store shelf.
Stick it to the Man
Let’s face it. Many of us have grown up in a culture that was stigmatized, criminalized, demonized and downright lied about. The same governments that have arrested us, put us down and shamed us for decades are now making a shit ton of money off of us. While no one belongs in jail for a plant and we support any form of positive reform to cannabis laws, many cannabis consumers do not support putting billions in the pocket of those that fought against us for so long. By growing your cannabis at home you can stick it to the man and rely on no one but yourself to provide you with the cannabis that you need.
