Synopses & Reviews
A beginner's guide to growing weed at home, featuring straightforward advice for designing indoor and outdoor cannabis gardens, choosing seed varieties, buying equipment, planting, pot harvesting, storage, stash security, troubleshooting, and more.
Before he became one of the world's foremost authorities on chile peppers, Dave DeWitt grew his own marijuana--indoors, outdoors, and in a specially designed 2,000-square-foot "marijuana barn." Now the author of more than 40 books turns his attention from spices to herbs. Featuring step-by-step instructions, 125 photographs and how-to illustrations, and even recipes, Growing Medical Marijuana steers clear of unnecessary scientific and technical jargon to present everything the beginner gardener needs to grow, harvest, and enjoy a secure and legal cannabis crop.
