Reap What You Sow

Growing cannabis can grow your soul.

Raising your own buds from the ground up cultivates a unique outlook on health and wellness that can only be nurtured in the home. Starting a personal cannabis garden introduces you to a way of thinking that produces a better, healthier lifestyle if you let it. The value of quality, the importance of knowledge, the burden of responsibility, and the reward for persistence are experiences gained by growing cannabis. These experiences can change your perspective on the world and set the foundation for a mental, physical, and spiritual awakening that can change your life for the better.

Plants are an integral part of our lives, and surrounding ourselves with living plants of any kind has been shown to lower anxiety, improve perception and attentiveness, and increase productivity in other areas of life. Tending a personal grow keeps the body active, and an active body is a healthy one.

A personal grow also ensures you know exactly what you’re putting into your body. This is especially important for patients with compromised immune systems since these patients depend on additive-free cannabis for safe, reliable relief. 

Growing your own means you know precisely which plants are in your pots. With cloning, a simple process anyone can do with a little know-how, you can keep the strains that work best for your medical conditions, long after the mother plant is uprooted and harvested. With breeding, you can cross your best strains to generate new plants with qualities customized to your needs.

There’s a lot to growing, but there’s always help, too. In Colorado, caregivers are available to provide invaluable experience and insight into the complexity of medicinal cannabis production, better equipping you to navigate the myriad of options and choices available today. Once you are growing your own plants and seeing the results in your medicine and feeling the improvement of your general wellbeing, you may find yourself applying your new skills to the rest of your life—for the rest of your life.
