Growing marijuana is loads of fun, almost as much as smoking it. There are several different methods to grow your own medical marijuana. Depending on the strain, climate conditions and of course the political climate surrounding marijuana, you will have to choose accordingly.
In addition to numerous growing methods, there is an ongoing debate on which method is best. Some argue that soil is the best while others argue that hydro is the best as well as the debate over indoor and outdoor cultivation. All of these variables will play a role in your end decision. Whichever way you decide to go, the ultimate goal is growing your own medical marijuana.
Indoor – You can choose to grow your marijuana indoors. This is a very good option for people who live in states or neighborhoods that are more conservative. Here you have options as well. You could opt in for soil or hydro depending on your budget. Hydro will speed up the production while soil (some say) will intensify the taste. You’ll obviously need lights to replicate the sun, but we’ll cover that in another segment.
Outdoor – Arjan from the Green House Seed Co prefers outdoor marijuana. In one of his strain hunter videos he said that no artificial light can replicate the sun. He’s absolutely right about that aspect. If you have the option to grow outdoors in good soil (natural or potted), you would produce the best crops. This isn’t an option for everyone due to the illegality of marijuana. But if you happen to live in a legal marijuana or medical marijuana state, and are permitted to grow outdoors, this will definitely be a good option.
As I mentioned above, there are many variables that come in play when growing marijuana. You have to analyze your situation before you make a decision. In current “pre-legal” marijuana states some people even resort to CFL stealth grow boxes. We’ll cover a section in the future on CFL Stealth grow boxes for you medical marijuana, and will teach you how to set it up.
