Learn How To Grow Cannabis From Experts

I’ll admit, I’m not the best home grower you’ll ever meet. I would consider myself above average, but I’m not an expert. That’s why whoever is reading this should know I’m coming at this from a humble perspective. I’m always learning and picking up tips and tricks on social media and google searches to educate myself continually about growing cannabis.

My goal with this section of the website is to help you learn how to grow cannabis on your own.

These interviews are perfect for the beginning or novice grower that’s looking to grow for there own personal use at home.

For me to teach you, I figured the best way is to interview experts within the cannabis industry and ask them questions I think you would ask.

This is a growing list of interviews I’ve conducted over the past few months with growers I’ve found on the internet.

I encourage you to read/listen to these interviews and please apply the knowledge you’ve learned to your own grows.

They offer simple and practical solutions to many of the problems that are probably plaguing grow right now.

He comes on the show to talk about the importance of Nutrient Density and explains how to bud wash your cannabis in a simple and very cost-effective manner.

I can tell Michael has a deep passion for growing cannabis and left a job in corporate America to pursue his dream of growing.

He goes into detail as to why the brix reading for cannabis is important for cannabis growers because the higher the brix reading, the quality of bud will dramatically increase. He made the point that a lot of organics cannabis growers see relatively high brix readings hovering around the 12 or 13 mark but he feels with enough focus on quality versus quantity a brix reading of nearing 20 would be ideal for “top-shelf” bud. He made the point, organic growers in Northern Italy are consistently getting high brix readings.

Why You Should Care Which Amendments You Have In Your Soil

Why You Should Care Which Amendments You Put In Your Soil
Why You Should Care Which Amendments You Put In Your Soil

I was fortunate enough to have youtube sensation on the Cheap Home Grow podcast this week. Medfit talks in detail about soil amendments and why as a home grower you should care about what amendments you put into your soil.

Medfit is self-educated and talks how he started growing in Las Vegas in 2014. Like many new or novice home growers, he tested multiple different growing mediums but eventually found his way with growing organically.

Medfit talks passionately about how super soil does nearly all of the work for him. Like many traditional home growers that have to PH, PPM, EC etc.. he lets his soil do that work for him.

He does into detail as to how this process works.

I especially like this approach because as many of you know I’m a relatively new grower. I, like most home growers, can’t devote an excessive amount of time every day to growing there own so Medfit’s almost “hands off” approach is something I think you can truly appreciate especially if you’re looking for a simple way of growing your own cannabis without sacrificing quality or yield.

This podcast is definitely worth a listen for anyone that’s interested in “spicing” up there own soil and getting a better quality tasting bud.

Learn How To Cook With Cannabis For Its Medicinal Benefits

It’s my pleasure to bring back on the show Jenny aka MissNewtyGrows on Instagram. Today she comes on the show to talk about the recreational and medicinal benefits of cooking with cannabis.

Jenny offers tips, tricks and simple solutions for when you first start cooking with cannabis.

Her advice is practical and will allow you not to get overwhelmed or intimidated when you first start learning how to cook with cannabis.

Around the 20 minute mark in the show, I think she made an important point about how long you should cook with your cannabis. She said and I quote “the longer you cook with cannabis, the greater the “couch-like” effect it will have on your body. As the THC degrades, it turns into CBN which in turn makes you sleepy.” I think that’s an important statement for you if you’re considering cooking with cannabis.

This is a great podcast for anyone that’s looking to get a better understanding of how to properly cook with cannabis the first or even the second time around. Please remember to press subscribe and enjoy the show!

Learn Hot To Germinate & Transplant Your Seed When You Start Growing

It’s my pleasure to bring back Dr. MJ from CocoForCannabis. He’s been on the show multiple times, and today he comes on to talk about the basics of germination and the transplantation process during vegetation.

He talks simple techniques that anyone can employ and offers his trusted insight on what a home grower should and shouldn’t do during this critical process.

Around halfway through the conversation, he brings up a good point about the common misconception that a new home grower thinks it’s easier to germinate in a five-gallon container.

He doesn’t believe this is true because “pot training” is essential when first growing your cannabis. For anyone that doesn’t know, pot training is putting your plant in different containers during the vegetation process. As the plant progresses and gets more substantial in length, it’s essential for a home grower to move the plant to a larger container.

This episode is full of beneficial information. Please sit back, listen and learn.

I was surprised as to how inexpensive and easy a setup can be in your home or a corner of your bedroom in this case. The images below depict his indoor operation setup and offer a glimpse as to how simple but effective a setup like this can yield.

It’s not every day a cannabis podcast can interview an “old school” grower. I was lucky to come across Joe Dolton from Massachusetts of the New England Grass Roots Institute. Joe talks about how important the environment is when growing your own. He goes into detail about ventilation, offers helpful tips and tricks for new growers and talks about how important organic growing is. As a side note, I’ve been lucky to interview a few “old school” growers and they all seem to gravitate towards organic grows.

Please enjoy this information-packed episode. We look forward to having Joe back on the show!

It’s my pleasure again to introduce “Jack” from JackGreenStalk on Instagram. Jack was on the how a few weeks ago and gave us a great breakdown of how to grow cannabis in your coat closet.

I’ve had Jack on the show a few times and every time we get together and “chew the fat” I always come away learning something new. This episode is no different as Jack talks about cannabis hash. He’ll give you a breakdown of how you can go about making your own. I feel hash is one of the most misunderstood forms of cannabis. There’s a lot of information about hash, some good and other misleading but Jack doesn’t disappoint in this episode as he espouses his deep knowledge of hash and also gives a “PHD breakdown” of the Frenchy Cannoli Resin Quality Scoring Sheet.

It’s my short career as a podcaster I’ve come across many interesting cannabis entrepreneurs.

My interview with Vincent Bitetti of Green Goddess Supply would certainly qualify as interesting.

Vincent is a serial entrepreneur. He’s bootstrapped a Fortune 500 company to now inventing a
home grow box that set to transform the home grower cannabis marketplace.

While Vincent isn’t a doctor or medical researcher, his invention was invented with the idea of helping people that suffer from common ailments.

Vincent is a cannabis optimist. He believes in the power of the plat and its medicinal value. During our conversation, he made a few good points about saving money growing by growing your own but more importantly about what you’re putting into your body. Bigger or corporate growers not always but often use pesticides. While talking to one of his main points about growing your own is knowing exactly what you’re putting into your own cannabis. With an approach like this, how can you not want to grow your own?

The cannabis industry is filled with individuals who claim their growing technique’s/methods are the best. In my opinion, a lot of these growers aren’t humble, so it’s nice to meet an induvial that is humble and is open to learning new things.

I was fortunate to talk to “Jack” from “JackGreenStalk.” He was humble and honest with his first micro grow. He spoke openly about his growing mistakes, what he needs to improve as he continues to grow and surprised him about growing indoors.

Jack and I talked about the upfront costs associated with growing. He indicated he isn’t a doctor but he made it a point to say growing your own in the long run is not only healthier for you but the amount of money you’ll be saving on your first, second, third run is going to yield you significant savings. He made this point around the 30-minute mark in the conversation.

Overall, I believe this was Jack’s point about growing. Why rely on a third-party a pharmacy or local cannabis retailer when you have the resources to educate yourself and produce medicine that will make you feel better and save you money in the long run.
