Can you mix Marijuana with Hydroxyzine? 

Atarax or Vistaril are considered hydroxyzine, which are medications that help with allergy treatment, nausea, and anxiety. Currently, Medscape says that if you’re going to use cannabis, you need to be cautious when combining this with hydroxyzine. That’s because it may cause some side effects including drowsiness that’s severe, dizziness, and also higher blood pressure and heart rate. This can trigger panic attacks, anxiety, and hyperventilation. If you want to use both, it’s best to just taper the use of the latter. 

What Hydroxyzine is 

This is an antihistamine that’s usually sold under the name Vistaril, Atarax, and other kinds of names. This is a first generation anticholinergic and sedative product, and also works as an antihistamine. You usually have this in tablet or liquid form, and topical is something that you put onto the skin, or through an injection that’s intramuscular. 

Hydroxyzine is something that fits in the piperazine class which is basically a compound that includes a ring that’s got six members, with two of the various nitrogen atoms that are at different positions. 

How this works 

Hydroxyzine is something that’s commonly used for hives, itching, and allergies, especially if you have contract dermatitis. Other types of uses include it being anti-anxiety, also anti-emetic to help with vomiting and nausea, especially if you’ve got motion sickness. 

This also is a mild sedative, so it can be like a tranquilizer, so it can help with anxiety management, and also other distress, especially those with neurosis. 

Hydroxyzine is good because it is potent, and it works directly onto the H1 receptors, working as an inverse agonist, which means that it stops the histamines in the body, relieving inflammation and itching. It also is a weak kind of antagonize of the serotonin receptors, and other adrenergic receptors. 

Benefits and drawbacks 

Right now, cannabis seems to work synergistic with some drugs that are kind of sedatives, including benzos, barbiturates, opioids, and also some forms of antidepressants. 

Right now, cannabinoids are great for modulating the system, and also reducing information, which can help with inflammatory cytokines, dampening them, especially if you have an immune response. It also can help reduce emetic effects, so if you feel nausea, this can help with that. It also can be used to taper off hydroxyzine if you dose this correctly. 

However, there are some risks that go into this. It can increase your blood pressure, but it also may case hypotension, or low blood pressure. Anxiety is very common in this, and it can cause hyperventilating or hallucinations, especially in cases that are rare. 

It does make your mouth dry. 

You also may find that you’re tried, and you want to sleep a whole lot. You may notice as well that your coordination, balance, and dizziness is very common after taking this, along with confusion. There are also other side effects that can happen with this, since it can mess up the GI tract, making you constipated, cause tinnitus, which is the ringing inside your ears, and finally, headaches. 

Medical Marijuana

While these experiences are quite rare, it’s not something that should be totally discounted. If you do need to take both, the best thing for you to do, is to start tapering off the hydroxyzine. You may notice that it helps you more if you just use cannabis, getting off of the drug. Slowly taper this off. 

While this is great for any sorts of allergic reactions in the body, it can have negative effects, so be mindful of that before you use this, and keep it in mind when you try it as well. 

Edibles – It’s All About Finding the Right Dose

Edibles, like the rest of the cannabis industry in our country, have come a long way in the last few decades. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, taking an edible that your friend brought to a party was risky business – there’s a chance you could have a great time, and a bigger chance that you’d end up passed out on the couch within a few hours. However, edibles have become a lot more effective and are much safer nowadays. With more regulation and policy changes in the marijuana industry, it’s much easier to find edibles from credible sellers with very specific doses and strains in them. No longer do you need to worry about what’s actually in the pot brownie that Jessica from econ brought – now you can find the right dose for you.

However, if you are new to the world of weed edibles, there are a few things that you need to know before just jumping in. Edibles, unlike smoking or vaping weed, are much longer lasting than other forms of cannabis ingestion and usually have more mixed results. Plus, there is always that person who doesn’t feel the edible kick in and decides to take another… then both edibles kick in, and they regret everything. Either way, I don’t write all of this to scare. The edible cannabis business continues to grow in the United States and is a great option for people that do not want to smoke weed. However, I thought it would be beneficial for you to have some basic information about using edibles and finding the right dose for you.

The best advice that I can give for beginners involving cannabis edibles is to start with a lower dose. Like I said earlier, edibles can be a bit unpredictable at times. For example, one of my roommates wanted to try some weed with me, but he did not want to use my vape. I decided to let him try a 10mg THC gummy that I have had nothing but great experiences with for his first time. However, my buddy did not have a good time. He ended up getting really anxious and eventually crying in his bed – needless to say, he probably had too much.

A smarter me would have given him half a gummy to start with. Experts say that it is best for beginning cannabis users to start with about 2.5mg of THC in their edible, which is definitely respectable. More experienced users will tell you that 2.5mg is nothing, but it’s more important to slowly introduce yourself to the THC rather than experience what one of my roommates did. If you are taking an edible for the first time, it is also really important to give yourself at least 2 hours to see if you “feel it” kicking in. The last thing you want to do is end up taking too much THC that hits you all at once because it took a while to set in. Unlike smoking, using cannabis edibles can actually take a while for the THC to take effect

The great thing about using cannabis edibles is that they can be used for a large variety of reasons. One of the most common ways that people use edibles are for insomnia and chronic pain. Most patients that deal with chronic pain or insomnia (or both) like to use edibles because they last much longer than THC effects from smoking or vaping. The effects from an edible can be felt upwards of 4 hours or so, which is more beneficial for someone that is looking for a longer lasting result.

Other Cannabis compounds Beyond THC 

Cannabis is something that’s had a lot of research over the last decade or so, and while so many still see it as something harmful, there’s a lot of safe and effective ways to use this in various medical cannabis ways.

But did you know that while THC is one of the main compounds, there’s actually a lot more inside of this? Here, we’ll go over some of the top compounds in this, that are beyond what THC does and it’s not the only part of cannabis that’s easy, effective, and truly does help the body and mind. Here’s what else is in there! 

Beyond Just THC 

There is a lot more inside of there besides just THC, and that’s something that you need to understand, since this plays a role in the health plan that you’re going to take, and some of the benefits that you get out of this. 


CBD us something that’s really well-known, and it’s something that you’re allowed to sell, even though marijuana is illegal at a federal level in some cases. 

This has a lot of applications that do work for this. It helps with stress relief, managing pain, and also treats insomnia too. It’s got an effect that’s very calming on the body, which offer benefits of both mental and physical reactions, along with the treatment of many diseases. 

While CBD may seem new, it’s actually something that’s been around since 1940, and it’s something that a lot of researchers have started to study for decades. There are even studies that back it up with research to showcase the effects of CBD, and why they’re good on the body. 


This is the cliché “mother” cannabinoid, and this is something that actually turns into some of the lesser cannabinoids. This is something that has a lot of various uses, and it’s something that needs to be kept away and used separately before it’s converted into various compounds. 

It’s associated in most cases with your digestive tract, relieving various symptoms of colorectal problems, including cancers and IBD in a lot of cases. 

It’s actually been found as something that slows down cancer growth, however, do understand that most of the studies that are purporting this were done on animals, and not on humans, so bear that in mind. 


This is another compound that actually is not found in cannabis that’s fresh, and that’s because it happens when you oxidize THC. This is something that if you want to have it, you need to expose your flower to air that’s open for a bit. 

CBN is great for those who suffer from insomnia, and it’s something that’s super beneficial, and offers antibacterial benefits that boost your appetite, which is vital for people who are going though radiation, chemotherapy, or are too nauseated to have something to eat. 


Finally, we have CBC, and while there isn’t a lot of fame to this one, it’s actually something that helps with something unique in those who use it. It’s really good for treating acne, something the other compounds aren’t good at. This one is really good, and it can help because it does not have the other benefits the others do, but it also does have anti-inflammatory benefits, and it does work with the receptors. 

All of these do bind to the receptors within the body, which are used to treat a variety of different conditions, helping you have a better life, boosting your wellness, and also helping you get the best bodily response you can to cannabis as well. 

Can Cannabis Create Stomach Ulcers 

There is a chance that weed does help with stomach ulcers, but there is also a chance that they might develop. There are a few reasons for this, since it can increase inflammation risk, and also help with alleviate the pain, which could also mask the inflammation that’s going on within the stomach..  it means that you may have ulcers which are progressive even if you weren’t sure of this. However, most of the time, this is seen with those who have discerned use of cannabis, or if they’re using synthetic cannabinoids. 

There is evidence more than likely though that it can treat and later prevent the formation of these ulcers because of the anti-inflammatory results from this. CBD also decreases the gastric acid and the blood flow that’s near the stomach lining, and also may help to manage the side effects of this, and also may reduce GI problems and pain. 

Marijuana and your stomach 

Stomach problems actually respond quite well to cannabis. IBD, Crohn’s disease, and also ulcerative colitis do actually benefit from this. This is due to the endocannabinoids that are in there, which is a network that comes with a bunch of receptors and the cannabinoids in them. 

Our bodies have cannabinoids that bind to this, but the cannabinoids within cannabis do bind to this, activating the receptors, and also does offer action within the body, including the GI tract. One of the main side effects of this is the actual activation of gut functioning that’s healthy, and protects against IBS, IBD, and also may help with motility issues that come with this. 

It actually can inhibit the secretion of gastric acids, which in turn may also help those who struggle with bile problems, or if they have acid reflux., 

Not to mention that cannabis also is anti-filamentary, and also may help with antioxidant and vasodilation, so it can also offer various effects on the stomach lining. It can protect your gastric mucosa, including that from NSAIDs, and also may help with reducing this. The long-term results from this can also have adverse problems, and you may struggle with hyperemesis syndrome from cannabis, which also cause vomiting, stomach pain, and nausea. 

This actually has also been found that disordered use also does increase the chances of dealing with peptic ulcer hospitalizations. Since the discovery of this, it also could mean that the risk that increases is usually through the misuse of cannabis, and it could minimize the dangers of this quite a bit. 

Despite some parts of this being anti-inflammatory, it actually has the chance to increase inflammation risk, which plays a major role in the ulcers there too.  Cannabis also does reduce the sensitivity to pain, so it might mask the possibility of the stomach issues that are there and you might not seek out treatment, which leads to more or worse pain from this. 

There is some evidence however which does suggest that cannabis can protect against the formation of ulcers in the stomach. According to some preclinical studies that were done in rats, it wsa discovered that THC that wsa administered subcutaneously and also orally actually stopped the formation of these ulcers, and also exogenous administration that’s found in cannabis also does inhibit the development of these ulcers that are created through NSAIDs. 

Plus, due to the gastroprotective parts of this and reducing the motility and acid secretion in the body, and it can help with it. If you’re going to take this, talk to your doctor before you start using cannabis to help with this condition too. 

Cannabis and Prostate Cancer 

Some people may need to worry about different possible health scares, one of them being prostate cancer. 

Of course, this happens usually when some people go in, and sometimes, the effects happen so suddenly. It may be hard to get out of bed, a person may feel light headed, and there might be abdominal pain.  it’s concerning, and for those who have prostate cancer, it can be metastases into different areas.  It can push the PSA levels quite high, to over 5000 or so, and this can be quite concerning. 

Prostate cancer is a very common cancer sadly, with over 11% of men getting this, and it can definitely be a bit scar too. 

Most of the time, once the cancer is found, the person is put on a combination of calcium, androgen deprivation, along with vitamin D, and the person can’t do a lot about it.  This can definitely be scary, but did you know that cannabis may help with the effects? 

Cannabis for Cancer? 

There are ways that cannabis can help.  While there isn’t something that definitively says, a combination  CBD, THC, THC-A and CBD-A is good for this, since they do have anti-tumor properties, and it’s something that can be used in any targeted cancer treatment.  Moderate doses do work. 

For some people, doing this with cannabis oils along with testosterone blockers, vitamin D, and Calcium can actually help with this, bringing the PSA down, and even helping with bony metastases as well. 

This is something that’s dramatic for some people, especially since a lot of people don’t have the PSA numbers blow 1 or so. cannabinoids with hormonal therapy can actually help for a lot of people who do have prostate cancer. This of course, is something that could be used as a treatment method along with radiation or surgery too. 

What cannabinoids Do 

Cannabinoids of course interact with the endocannabinoid receptors which of course is a system all of us have, and many times, these are activated through the cannabinoids consumed, and cannabis is a powerful controller of this. 

This works with those receptors, and tumors with a lot of receptors will respond to this. Prostate cancer in particular does have a very dense population of receptors. 

It does the following when triggered: 

  • Lowers the blood supply to this. 
  • Activate the endocannabinoid system to fight the cancer 
  • Uses non-THC cannabinoids to reduce the testosterone levels, working like androgen blockers 
  • Causes cellular suicide in some cases 

There isn’t toxicity from this too, and this could be something that can help those who need something with natural ani-cancer effects. For those specifically looking for prostate cancer solutions, cannabis can actually help with reducing the testosterone in some ways, and it can be helpful as a lot of typical blockers usually fail. It’s a great way as well to relieve other side effects as well, including lack of appetite, pain for treatments, and nausea too. 

The non-psychoactive properties are tested exclusively, and while there isn’t a ton of studies done on this, it could definitely be something that’ll incorporate more THC as well. Most of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes found in this do have anti-cancer properties, and this is something that can actually offer some benefits. 

Right now, there needs to be more data confirmed, and more studies done, and it’s something that could possibly be used to help with hormonal blocking too. While there is still a lot to learn, it could be helpful for those who suffer from prostate cancer today, and to make them live longer too.

How to Use a Tincture 

The beauty of cannabis tinctures is that they are convenient, quick, and usually are a safe way to consume different cannabinoids. 

They’re made through infusing cannabis into liquids such as alcohol, hemp oil, MCT oil, or grapeseed oil. This offers further benefits and lets you get the cannabis benefits that you want without vaping or smoking. 

This is one of the best ways to use it, especially in places where using cannabis is frowned upon. 

Why tinctures 

Tinctures are easy, quick, and they are convenient. You don’t need to worry about it smelling, nor do you need smoking accessories. They’re basically all in smell-proof bottles that are easy for storage and carrying. 

Tinctures are a good, healthy way to consume the various cannabis that you enjoy. It is believed to also be safer too, since cannabis smoke does have some carcinogens and toxins, and even vaping does have these compounds. They’re considered the safest way to consume cannabis too. 

They are precise in dosage, and they’ll tell you how much you’re getting through the dropper that’s in the bottle. 

How to use This 

Since it’s pretty simple, most think that it doesn’t require a lot of thought to it, but there are those who don’t use them correctly. 

You’ve got three ways. You add it to liquids, orally, or sublingually. 

Sublingual is when you put it underneath the tongue, hold it there for up to 180 seconds and then swish it about for a bit before you swallow it. It absorbs the cannabinoids into membranes around the inside of the cheeks and tongue. Once absorbed, they get carried directly to the bloodstream, where the effects happen. 

These can be felt within 3 minutes and last up to 3 hours or so. 

You can also have these orally though, and they do produce similar effects, but they last a lot longer. It can take up to 2 hours for it to work, and the effects can last up to 6 hours in some cases. 

Finally, you can add these to liquids and food to hide the taste. Coffees, teas, or eve other foods that mix well together such as a sauce, yogurt, or pudding are good. This is basically like and edible, and the onset will be similar to if you just took it orally. 

It can last up to 6 hours, but it’ll take up to 2 hours to fee the effects. 

Not All Equal 

A big thing to understand is that despite them looking similar, not every tincture is the same. One of the advantages of tinctures is that you get different ratios compared to other compounds.  It isn’t just THC or CBD either, a lot of them have ratios for both. If both one of them or the other isn’t working, try to use a combination tincture instead. You also may need to use something as well that’s a bit stronger if you’ve tried but are still not feeling the effects of it either. 

Tinctures are a fun way to consume cannabis, and a lot of people like it for this reason. With that said, do be mindful of the types of tinctures that you decide to consume, and if you think that it’s good for you, talk to your doctor or a qualified butender to help you not only figure  out the best ways to have this, but also what the best tincture for the job is, and how a certain tincture may be what you’re looking for, based on the goals that you might have as well for your cannabis consumption and overall wellness too.

THC-O and Delta-8 THC: what are they 

Both THC-O and delta-8 are considered both cannabinoids that are derived from hemp, and they offer very similar results to each other, and a lot of medical and recreational users will use these but they do have their differences. 

The main difference is that HTC-O is considered mostly illegal, and Delta-8 is still suffering from the legalization issues. 

How THC-O works 

This is THC-O acetate, and this is basically a manmade cannabinoid that offers feelings that are euphoric and psychoactive. It’s not found within the plant itself, but you get this from CBD, CBG, and CBN in most cases. 

This includes the use of acetic anhydride, along with other special equipment. The synthesis of this starts with the CBD extraction, converting this into Delta-8.  In most cases, this is then combined with acetic anhydride, in order to create THC-O. this then gets rid of the extra solvents and other chemicals which aren’t totally needed either. 

The usage of this definitely is similar to THC, but it is definitely more recreational. Some cases this may prove more potent than regular THC, and it can cause you to experience some hallucinogens, along with other feelings that are psychedelic in response. 

Some also say that THC-O has helped increase the mental and spiritual awareness, and it’s similar to substances that are psychedelic. This has been proven to help with the relief of stress, reduce anxiety, and also reduce nausea.  It also can be used as a type of stimulant. However, there are a few drawbacks of this. First, it’s way more expensive, since it’s hard to get. You also will probably be spending more. 

It’s also not regulated, and this can be a dangerous product, since it is not one that’s safe to produce from your home. 

You should also be mindful of the lack of research on this and avoid this entirely. Some people have had a lot of bad effects, some of which are more sensitive and stronger than regular Delta-8 or other forms of THC. 

What about Delta-8? 

This is basically an isomer of the regular delta-9 THC, so it’s got the same number of atoms, but arranged a bit differently. Cannabis doesn’t make a ton of this, but you can get it from hemp plants frequently. It definitely creates a high similar to regular THC, but it’s definitely much milder. It helps improve your feelings, helps to relax, relieve pain, and also reduce the results of nausea, but there isn’t a ton of research. 

However, there is not a ton of research. Most of the benefits come from hearsay on social media. Some say that this helps with reducing the use of prescriptions. It can improve your appetite, prevent nausea, improve your outlook on life, and reduce the pain that you’re feeling. 

The downside is that it’s something that is not normally sold in a lot of places, and many times, they’re not FDA regulated, so it can be a bit worrisome. 

Some have also said that they have elevated and lower heart rates, more chances for anxiety, tiredness, blood pressure issues, confusion, issues with reaction times and red eyes. But delta-8 does work similarly to regular marijuana, so it’s something to consider if that’s what you’d like. Overall, both of these products do need better regulation, but if you had to choose between one or the other, delta-8 is the much better option. It’s safer, has a lot of good benefits, and it’s not made with a risky process, so it tends to be a lot better for you, safer, and it can work in your favor. 

Cannabis and appetite 

This is something that some people deal with a lot, where after a couple of hits, they have the munches. It’s logical as well that cannabis is a natural appetite stimulant. There is research a plenty that discusses how this activates your ECS, triggering the hormones that increase hunger and also boost the food intake. The relationship however, r is a lot more nuanced and complex than that, since there are different cannabinoids which affect the appetitive in various different ways, and there is a chance that both long-term and short-term usage of cannabis does affect your hunger the energy you have, and your metabolism. 

Weed and Food: How it Affects 

Because there are a lot of Phyto cannabinoids that are similar to endocannabinoids, they do bind directly to your ECS, and it can cause major cellular changes and other cascades biochemically. Tweaking your ECS with the molecules can impact the outcome, depending on what’s used. 

THC does cause a surge in your appetite in most cases, since the cannabinoids will bind directly to your CB1 receptors as a kind of agonist, which means that the activity of the receptors are raised far above the baseline. There are various endocannabinoids that are within the body, which target this too, and it can cause dysregulation, which means that they get overactivated, which is what contributes to the sudden increase in hunger. 

CB1 is discovered to be a promising possible way to targe obesity in some people, and this also has been used as a means to target different sies in various manners.  The agonists that are inverse of CB1, such as Rimonabant, does have the opposite results that THC does, which reduces your receptor levels far below where the baseline is. 

While the drug seemed successful, it was too scattershot, and through the influence of this, it did directly mess with the mood, creating suicidal thoughts within a person. The CB2 receptors are definitely the opposite though, since if you activate those, it boosts the consumption of food. 

Cannabis and the Influence on Appetite 

This is something that a lot of people are curious about, since in  lot of cases, the munchies can feel like a super novel experience. As the research develops though, the constituents of this can cause eating disorders, obesity, and side effects of medication. 

It was something that some people are a little bit curious about, since the cannabis plant can possibly be activated. THC doesn’t create the psychoactive results because it interacts with the CB1, and the analogue of this does create an agonist along with antagonist results on the receptors. 

There are some animal studies which are looking to further  explore and go into this molecule, especially as antagonists to see how this affects weight loss, appetite, the satiety, and the upregulation of your energy, along with the metabolism of this as well. THC and CB1 is something that can possibly help with treating eating disorders too, including anorexia. While there are very few trials that have been tested on this, according to a study in 2017 that looked at the way that THC does affect the psychological results of anorexia in some of this, including self-reports of bodily care and depression. 

Plus, according to a human trial that’s randomized, they used different products and they looked at the side effects of the leptin and ghrelin increases, and how the hunger hormones were changed. Plus, there are some  side effects of chemotherapy, and also cannabis can help with some of the results that come with this, improving the caloric intake in those who need it, especially those who struggle with keeping food down. 

Tobacco Vs. Weed 

Tobacco and weed might seem like they’re similar since you can smoke both, but tobacco tends to be much riskier in terms of health than mere cannabis is. Tobacco is legal for adults to use, while cannabis is still illegal at the federal level, considered to be a schedule I controlled substance, and is still illegal to carry if you bring it across the state lines, but some have medical cannabis programs. 

The difference mis much more striking when you look at the legalities of this, since the nicotine that’s in tobacco is considered as addictive as heroin is, along with alcohol and barbiturates. Cannabis is definitely missing from the list of the most addictive substances out there, and the cannabis smoke tends to be less carcinogenic. 

All about tobacco 

This is basically plant that’s grown for the leaves, gets fermented, dried, and press, and then is put into products to offer a large-scale level of production. This is indigenous to the US, Mexico, and south American areas, and this is something that a lot of people used to back in the day would smoke via pipes and rolling papers. All of these tobacco products have what’s called nicotine in them, which is very addictive, and when you absorb this into the bloodstream, it causes your brain to release adrenaline. 

Then, the CNS gets stimulated, causes dopamine to rise, and it rewards the behavior, which is party why nicotine is one of the hardest drugs to quit, since it’s hard to curb this addiction. Tobacco has been used in cigars, rolling papers for cigarettes, and even pipes too, and there are some cultures, especially native Americans, who use this for healing ceremonies and other sessions. Some will use chewing tobacco, and also may smoke the leaves as well inside a water pipe, or hookah. 

The benefits are that it can help fortify the body and improve overall health, but the benefits are very few according to the research out there, and so far, has more benefits than drawbacks. The risks along with drawbacks are quite numerous, but this is something that’s linked directly to the chemicals rather than the nicotine though. 

Some of these risks include the following:

  • Lung cancer along with other kinds 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Emphysema 
  • Bronchitis that’s chronic 
  • COPD
  • Stroke 
  • Heart attack or heart disease 
  • Death 

It’s important to note that a lot of cancers come from this, including mouth cancer. 

Is there any similarities to weed? 

Both of these do have the option to make a person feel good and euphoric due to the endorphins that get released. Both are typically considered psychoactive, but nicotine is the only stimulant in it. HTC is the one in weed that is either stimulating or sedating depending on the strain. However, it’s been found that nicotine is much more addictive when compared to cannabis, but a dependency can happen in both. Both of these drugs do come with bad withdrawal symptoms but nicotine is proven to be much harder. 

Another big difference is that tobacco is not good for you if you swallow it, but consumption of weed is totally fine, and you can even enjoy cannabis like this. Some even put this into dishes and baked goods. Another big difference is that the tobacco products that are there come from the leaves, and the cannabis products that you have also come from the flower of this. Both tobacco and cannabis do have some differences and similarities, and it’s up to you to figure out if that’s something you desire or not. 

How to Grow Your Own Weed – Everything you Need to Know 

Have you ever thought about growing your own weed at home? Now that weed is becoming more accessible to the general public in the United States, some places allow medical users to grow their own cannabis plants from home. Usually, this kind of privilege is saved for people with medical cards, but some states in the country are even allowing recreational users to legally grow their own weed at home. Who would have thought that we would be living in a time where people could legally grow marijuana in their house without having to hide it? While growing marijuana yourself is not exactly without its difficulties, it is not so hard that normal people like you and I are incapable of doing so.

That is why I wanted to write this article today. Growing your own weed can save you a lot of money in the long run if you are somebody that spends upwards of 3 or 4 hundred dollars at the dispensary each month. Plus, there is something special about being able to grow, harvest, and smoke your own cannabis. It truly makes the whole experience better. At any rate, one of the main concerns that people have about growing their own cannabis is how much room they have. Not everyone has a big backyard or outside garden where they can plant their cannabis. The good news is that it is completely possible, and beneficial, to grow your cannabis plants indoors! Just make sure that you adhere to the laws and guidelines about marijuana growing in your state. Most states only allow a certain amount of plants to be grown per household, so make sure that you do not plant more than what is allowed. 

The great thing about growing marijuana indoors is that you are not limited to the weather or climate of your location. Instead of having to rely on mother nature to look kindly upon your cannabis plants, you simply create the sunlight, soil, and water that they will need through your own efforts. This allows you to have cannabis plants growing year round, and you can also experiment growing all different types of strains. Another great thing about growing your own cannabis is that you can let your plant get however big you want, and then control when the flowers are harvested. Some people like to wait a few weeks before harvesting. Either way, you will have basically all the weed you can want year round by growing your own. Also, it is nice to grow your cannabis indoors because of the fact that, even in legal marijuana states, your cannabis plants need to be out of sight from neighbors and the general public. So without further ado, let me tell you some things that you should know about growing your own marijuana plants.


Firstly, you are going to need some space in your home or apartment that is solely dedicated to growing cannabis. While you don’t need a ton of space, it is important to note that you won’t really be able to move your plants around all that much. Growing marijuana near a window is ideal since you will be able to vent air to the outside world. Like most things marijuana-related, growing the stuff smells very strongly! It’s not a bad idea to have a window where you can get rid of some of the smell. You also need to think about the climate and environment of your home or apartment too, since cannabis plants prefer certain conditions for growing. You want to choose a place that has colder, drier air for growing marijuana.
