The freedom to grow weed, especially for medical patients, comes with a plethora of advantages.

Well, anybody who has ever had a garden knows how much pleasure it brings to watch their plants turn from a seed into a flowering tree. It is almost like the satisfaction that comes from watching one’s own child grow and flower. It’s no different with your cannabis plant. Watching it grow is one of the greatest pleasures to experience, especially when you can reminisce while you are actually using it.
The point is that by growing cannabis, you are allowing yourself an experience with the plant before using it. Believe it or not, this allows you to have a much more personal experience that is tailored to the user while using it, almost like an opportunity to get to know your cannabis plant before smoking it, eating it, or vaporizing it. Being the one who actually prepares weed means that you can ensure it is grown with love and consciousness. This proposes an enormous difference from buying it from a drug dealer, for example, where it is associated with crime and violence. At the end of the day, the cannabis you use was once a living organism, and being involved in its growth makes your experience much more meaningful.
Ensuring the health of your weed
Being involved in the process of growing weed also helps you ensure that what you are using is clean and healthy.

For those who are more health-conscious, this isn’t really a desired outcome of using weed. You can ensure that your cannabis is grown without harsh chemicals or, even better, organically.

In parts of the world where it is legal, cannabis often comes with hefty taxes and it can be quite an expensive medicine to keep up with. This is especially true because, at this stage, cannabis hasn’t quite made it to the public healthcare system.

With all the costs involved (which are potentially low, especially if growing outdoors), you stand to save more money by growing your own weed. It also means that, at any given moment, you have enough good-quality weed around without having to go out looking for it. When you know what you are growing and have done it well, you can be sure that there is always enough for when you need it.
