Starting January 1st we will be offering marijuana growing kits to our patients.
You never know enough about growing weed. People have been growing cannabis for thousands of years. But, that’s probably part of the problem – too many experts!
Fortunately, the cannabis world is dynamic. New strains are bred and grown. Old strains fall out of favor. New fertilizers and technologies come along. And, regulations rear their head.
That also means there are new rules for growing indoors, outdoors, or hydroponic systems, each with their own needs.
Remembering that most of the history has been on a black market, you can’t be surprised no one discloses their secrets.
So, let’s try to consider it all.Texture, drainage, and water retention are important, but any commercial soil will claim these qualities. Cannabis needs water and oxygen from the soil.  Too much water, and the roots don’t grow. Not enough, and the leaves dry out. So, you need soil that retains just enough water and not too much.
Preferred soils are dark, rich, and loose. It has no wood, stones, or debris. And, it does not turn to mud when watered. You can mix in vermiculite, perlite, worm castings, and compost to build a healthy soil.

There are some m ore rules to the Marijuana Growing Law
Qualifying patients are not allowed to grow medical marijuana for other patients and non-patients, unless you are a licensed caregiver to that patient.
Rule Four: Other Laws May Apply

Though the state allows for home cultivation, patients are still subject to whatever laws, rules or regulations they have with their property or place of cultivation, as well as federal rules, laws and regulations.
Rule Five: Labeling

All home cultivated medical cannabis must be labeled with the Missouri medical marijuana patient’s name. This label must be written clearly and easy to read!
Rule Six: ID Card Placement

Patients will receive a qualifying patient cultivation identification card with cultivation authorization. This card must be CLEARLY displayed at the cultivation area, in close proximity to your medical cannabis plants. This authorization shall list the name of the patient or primary caregiver, as well as the address of the facility where medical cannabis is being cultivated

 

The time has come and soon you will be able to grow cannabis at home!
