It’s easier (and cheaper) to grow your own weed than you think.

Pot smokers — this is your reminder that it’s easier to grow than you think.

There’s a lot of banter about whether or not growing your own is worth it.

The cool thing about growing your own?

It’s easier (and cheaper) than you think to always have access to your favorite weed.


  • The cost is low (<$1000) to get started and once you’re set up, cost per cycle plummets.
  • Anyone with an internet connection can get seeds, supplies, and grow info
  • Daily maintenance can be low (< 30 mins) depending on the path you follow

If you’re wondering if growing is worth it, crunch the numbers:

A $150 ounce every week = $7,000 per year on weed.

$1000 Grow Setup = Save up to $6,000 in your 1st year.

And, if it doesn’t go as you planned, you can always go back to buying weed.

Or, you could try again, with help from a friend 😉

Growing is a life-changing hobby.

I hope even more of you give it a try in 2024.

That’s a wrap!
