Vincent Bitetti Home Grow Cannabis Box Is Set To Change Growing At Home Forever

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?

Learn How To Grow Cannabis In Your Coat Closet

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.
