The legalization of recreational cannabis is getting closer and closer!
With more and more states legalizing the plant, as well as the Canadian government on track to fully legalize for recreational use, people are getting excited at the possibility of home grown weed.
Luckily for them, there are already a number of solutions for growing weed indoors. From the super simple DIY project, to the latest indoor growing system that completely automates the growing process.
1) Automated Growing Systems
If you have little experience with cannabis cultivation, an automated system is your best bet for growing weed indoors. Indoor growing systems are an easy way to grow weed at home. The system waters your plants, distributes nutrients, and ensures that your plants get the perfect amount of light.
Equipped with full color spectrum LED grow lights, temperature sensors, a no-smell carbon filter, an electrochromic glass door, and a steel door lock, Grobo creates the perfect environment for your plants to thrive.
At $1999, Grobo is a cheaper and more manageable alternative for growing cannabis indoors. Oh, and did we mention that the system comes with a phone app that will deliver real-time plant information to the palm of your hand? Nifty.
2) Grow Tent
A grow tent can be thought of as a larger grow box. It is, in essence, an enclosed space for plants to grow in. There are two major differences between a grow tent and a grow box:
- Size and structure: Sizes for grow tents cover a wide range, but they will normally be larger than a grow box. Unlike a ridge grow box, a tent is made up of a metal frame and canvas walls, making it easy to setup or collapse if it needs to be moved.
- Out-of-box readiness: Although grow tents are relatively inexpensive, they are empty shells. You will need to individually buy the grow lights, fans, filters, and water containers that go into the tent. Researching and sourcing each item will take a large chunk of time and cost a pretty penny. On the flip side, this allows you to customize the tent to include the exact types of light or brand of filter that you prefer.
The best thing about DIY projects is the sense of accomplishment you feel when you complete it. That holds the same when building a DIY indoor growing system.
There are countless online tutorials detailing how to build a growing system, from small systems hacked together in plastic buckets, to large cabinets crafted with advanced cannabis growing equipment.
DIY systems are less expensive, but you have to be willing to source parts and research your options. If you’re not a DIY person, there’s always the above options!
