Just in case you needed a little convincing, the Pacific Seed Bank team put together this blog on why you should grow your own marijuana. We wouldn’t be in the weed seed business if we didn’t believe in the medical and healing powers on marijuana for both body and mind. If you’re still on the fence about buying weed seeds, let us try and convince you of all the benefits of growing marijuana.
We might be preaching to the wrong choir here since so many have already purchased seeds from us, but newcomers may not know the benefits that come with home-grown marijuana. Whether it’s for medical or recreational use, there’s something for everyone to gain with having their own crop right in their backyard. We count at least five benefits of growing marijuana…
Quality & Quantity Control
As a grower, you have more power and control in your hands over quality and quantity than most dispensaries. As soon as you involve second or third parties, it becomes a game of telephone. You may not be impressed by the quality of seeds or marijuana flower from a dispensary but who’s to blame? How high up the power chain does this go? Here’s an easy solution: take matters into your own hands and grow your own weed at home. You’re already on a seed bank website. Take a look at the strains we sell online, add some favorites to your cart, and complete checkout with Zelle or BitCoin.
Save Money In The Long-Run
Based on numbers and receipts alone, most people spend less at a marijuana dispensary than they do at a seed bank. Granted, it depends on where you live, but most people walk out of a dispensary having spent only $10, $20, or $30 for a batch of edibles, one or two flower strains, and maybe rolling papers. The pricing scale at seed banks works a little differently because we’re in it for the long-run. A dispensary-bought gram might last a month or so, whereas one single weed seed can grow up to $200 worth of marijuana. At Pacific Seed Bank, you can buy a…
- 3-pack of seeds for $29.99
- 5-pack of seeds for $49.99
- 10-pack of seeds for $99.99
- 25-pack of seeds for $229.99
Over the course of a few months, you truly get your money’s worth. If one seed can produce $200 worth of weed, then imagine a 5-pack. That’s $1000 worth of weed for $49.99. Pretty sweet deal, huh?
Stress & Anxiety Relief
Have you ever looked at a field or garden of flowers and thought, “That looks nice?” The visuals of a marijuana garden can be just as beautiful. Matured marijuana plants come in a variety of colors from their leaves to their nugs—orange, red, purple, all shades of green, brown, yellow, and let’s not forget about a stunning coating of white trichomes.
Additionally, growing your own marijuana gives you a reason to wake up in the morning, get dressed, and go outside. If you have a private yard or outdoor greenhouse, you should take advantage of this opportunity to get fresh air and Vitamin D, both of which are crucial to our mental health. Some say the growing process feels therapeutic and calming—something to get your mind off the negative stuff.
Make Your Own Hash, Extracts & Edibles
Why stop at just marijuana? When you feel you’ve reached a point of confidence in your growing skills, switch over to hash and extract products—your friends will thank you! Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a wad of fancy equipment to separate the plant material from the trichomes. This can be then pressed into hash or used for making infused oils, butter, or cream.
It’s amazing how many doors open from one marijuana plant. Once you’ve created canna-infused butter or canna-infused oil, you can put on your Chef’s hat and explore edibles. For a successful batch of cookies or brownies, you need a source of fat for marijuana to bind to. It can be olive oil, coconut oil, butter, etc.
Breed New Marijuana Strains
Although this task is slightly more advanced, it’s definitely in your wheelhouse to breed additional marijuana strains from what you’re currently growing. Really, the possibilities here are endless. You could breed a high-CBD strain for medical benefits or concoct an entirely new flavor profile. A personal favorite of ours is something chocolate-y mixed with spice.
For breeding purposes, keep in mind that you need both a male and a female plant (at least one of each). Male plants pollinate the female, which is how we get buds. These are the same buds that you see inside dispensary jars.
Come on, you’ve got to be convinced by now! Surely there’s something for you to gain from growing your own marijuana plants at home, whether it be indoors or outdoors. Put your growing skills to the test by adding a new level to your experience. It could be making your own hash, delicious edibles, or creating a new strain hybrid. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. What are your favorite benefits of growing marijuana?
