Cannabis home grow methods have become one of the more popular industries in cannabis. As each state moves forward with common sense policies, more individuals are learning how to grow their own marijuana. This is paving the way for many to obtain cannabis where it is not regularly available.
Cannabis Home Grow Cuts Costs
The average national cost for an ounce of marijuana is approximately $230. The average price for a small grow kit is around double that. At around $500, you can grow 2-3 plants and produce upwards of 15 ounces per grow cycle. So, by the time you have your first harvest, you have saved upwards of over $3500. Subtract the price of the kit and you still come out way over what you have invested.
Remember, you don’t have to deal with taxes (not that New Hampshire has high taxes in the first place) but you also don’t need to pay retail costs. Essentially, you’re paying wholesale just for yourself.
The largest reason why people are choosing this method is the ease at which its available. Instead of driving to the store, they have access to the plant right there in their home. Its safe, secure and, although it takes some time, bountiful. What better way to know what you are ingesting than to grow it yourself?
Why Is It Important That New Hampshire Allows At-Home Cultivation?
Even though New Hampshire hasn’t legalized, there are a number of key issues that need to be addressed. The first being, that it the state DOES decide to go forward with common sense policies, than the question over who can control it comes into play. As we are ALL fully aware, the state controls the liquor industry. As cannabis is still a schedule 1 narcotic on the federal level, New Hampshire doesn’t really want to the control – or do they? This actually hasn’t stopped them from trying to achieve this manner of control.
While a legalized market would mark a new industry for the granite state, the high costs of retail in addition to taxes will turn that $35 an eighth into upwards of $55. “Sure, thats the price to pay for regulated and taxed cannabis”, you may say about it, but when you look at how the industry is allowed to function, you may think again.
Many of the earlier states allowed the cultivation of cannabis in the same means that tobacco has been cultivated. No restrictions for the pesticides and other chemicals that are sprayed on tobacco plants. This means that the cannabis that you are enjoying from your local store has a high potential to contain those same chemicals.
Home Cultivation Provides Growers More Specific Strains
Have you ever had a favorite strain? I do. My favorites are King Louis, Jack Herer, and, of course, Sour Diesel. Unfortunately, despite most retail stores having a wide selection of cannabis, the market still dictates what they sell. This means that more popular strains for local areas get more focus while less popular strains fizzle away.
If you like how a strain makes you feel, then you want to purchase more of it. This is only available if there is an equal demand for it. Being able to grow from home means less time finding a store that sells your product. It means that at any point, you’ll be able to grow your favorite strains without the need for searching. Its in your home and you don’t need to dish out sometimes big money to obtain it.
