Cultivate Your Own Wellness: Why You Should Home Grow in 2024!
Are you intrigued by the idea of cultivating your own plant medicine at home but unsure where to start? Embarking on the journey of home growing can be a rewarding and empowering experience, providing you with a deeper connection and appreciation of the plant. In this blog post, we’ll explore the reasons why one would want to start their own home grow.
Why You Should Home Grow:
1. Control Over Inputs
When you grow your own plant medicine at home, you have complete control over the cultivation process. From selecting seeds or clones to choosing the soil and nutrients you feed your plants, every step is in your hands. This level of control allows you to ensure that your plant is grown organically and free from harmful pesticides or other undesirable/hazardous chemicals. You can tailor the growing conditions to maximize the potency and purity of your plant medicine, resulting in a product you can trust.
For many individuals, the cost of purchasing their plant medicine from dispensaries can be a limiting factor as it can get very expensive. Home growing provides a cost-effective alternative, allowing you to produce your own medicine at a fraction of the price. While there is an initial investment in the necessary grow supplies, the long-term savings can be significant as you’ll be able to grow for many years with the same equipment. Also, you can grow all year long indoors, giving you a perpetual supply of fresh medicine.
3. Personalized Strains for Personal Needs
Dispensaries often offer a variety of strains, but cultivating your own plants gives you the freedom to choose specific strains that cater to your individual needs. Whether you’re seeking relief from stress, anxiety, or chronic pain, you can tailor your grow to produce medicine that has a profile of secondary metabolites (i.e. cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.) that work best for you. Many times individuals will find a strain that works well for them at a dispensary, but upon returning and purchasing it again will find it does not provide them with the same relief or experience they initially enjoyed. When growing your own, you can find a strain that works well for you and clone it, making a genetic copy that will continue to provide you with that same profile you desire.
3. Educational Journey
Home growing is an educational journey that allows you to deepen your understanding of the cannabis plant, nature, yourself, and the interconnectedness of all living things. As you go down the road of growing you will expand your knowledge on a variety of topics ranging from horticulture, agronomy, chemistry, biology, electricity, and relationships that exist between different elements in nature. As you learn the stages of growth and what the plant needs to survive and thrive you will also learn more on what we as humans need to survive and thrive. This knowledge not only enhances your ability to grow high-quality plant medicine but also fosters a greater appreciation for the intricate design of nature and life.
4. Mindful Connection to Nature
Cultivating your own plant medicine fosters a mindful connection to nature. Watching your plants grow, tending to them, and observing their development can be a meditative and grounding experience. This connection goes beyond the therapeutic benefits of the final product and extends to the entire cultivation process, promoting a holistic approach to well-being.
Home Growing offers a myriad of benefits for individuals looking to embark on the journey of cultivating their own plant medicine. From quality control and cost-efficiency to personalized strains and an educational journey, the reasons to start your home grow are compelling.
