As marijuana becomes legal in more and more places, more and more people are taking up the hobby of growing it at home.
Of course, this is a relatively complicated topic, however, as legality differs from place to place–and because a lot of people don’t really know how to get started with the process.
Well, one of the best ways to get started is to do a bit of research and to make sure you understand the laws in your local area.
Once you understand the law, and you understand them well enough to know that you’re clear to grow some weed of your own, it’ll be time to do a bit of shopping.
You’re going to need to pick up some supplies to get the job done right.
This is true regardless of whether you plan to smoke, make tinctures, or even sell it.
(Hey, don’t knock those tinctures! Veriheal describes it like this:)
“Despite prohibition throughout the decades, tinctures have prevailed as an excellent (and smoke-free) consumption method for medicinal and recreational cannabis users alike.”
So in this guide, you’re gonna learn about five essential cannabis growing supplies that you’ll need in order to start growing your own favorite green plant.
Let’s jump into it.
1. A Grow Area
This usually either consists of a tent or a grow room.
Now, the specifics of this will depend mostly on your situation.
You may not have a building that you can use for this purpose.
And so, you may need to think about either erecting some kind of large tent, or maybe even building an external building.
But if you already have some space that you’ve decided you’d like to use for the purpose of growing your own marijuana—well then, you may already have this partially taken care of.
2. Grow Lights
The thing about marijuana is that it’s a plant.
Therefore, it needs sunlight.
With that being said, it’s also true that it’s a rather expensive and high maintenance plant to try to grow outside.
There’s a lot of risk involved in that process.
This is why people tend to grow it either in a grow building, or even in a tent or a greenhouse.
Animals can get into it.
You can also lose plants due to extreme weather.
And since you’re going to be growing it inside, UV lights will help to give it plenty of the light it needs to grow.
3. An Airflow System
This usually consists of systems for:
There are many reasons for why you’d want high-quality airflow in your grow area.
Partially, this is to help keep the plants from becoming too moist and damp—which could lead to rotting mold and other issues.
But this is also partly to keep the temperature at an appropriate level.
In any case, purchasing an airflow system is really going to be important if you want to grow successfully.
4. A Filtration System
You may love the smell of marijuana.
To you, it may smell like the most beautiful thing in the world.
However, the fact of the matter is that there are many reasons to mask the smell.
First off, it can attract rodents, pests, and animals.
Secondly, if you live in a neighborhood where you’re anywhere even remotely close to other people, an excessive weed smell could get you into trouble.
At the very least, it could raise awareness about your operation, and could possibly lead to people making complaints about you.
This certainly isn’t something you want in your neighborhood.
So getting a filter system is always a good idea.
5. Environment Control Equipment
This equipment generally consists of programmable thermostat controllers, lab thermometers, environmental timers, etc.
This is going to be important all the time because you’re going to want to keep the environment in your growth area at an appropriate level to facilitate the best health and wellness of your plants.
However, this is especially important if you plan to travel, and if you won’t always be present within your growing space.
This is why programmable thermostats and controllers are so important.
If you like to travel, if you go to work during the day, etc. it’s really important to make sure that the environment stays plant-friendly while you’re gone.
There you have it.
Five essential cannabis growing supplies you’re going to need if you plan to grow your own plants.
With that being said, the sky is really the limit.
There are plenty of places where you can purchase this equipment, and there are plenty of options to choose from.
So get out there and make it happen!
