As cannabis consumption becomes more mainstream and the demand for high-quality product increases, many individuals are turning to homegrowing as a way to provide consistency, eliminate pesticides, and ensure the highest-quality harvest. With the rise of AI-driven automation technologies, growing cannabis at home has become easier and more accessible than ever before.
One major advantage of growing cannabis at home is the ability to control the quality of the product. When buying from a dispensary, consumers cannot always be sure of the source of the cannabis they are purchasing. According to Leafly, “most cannabis producers do implement some sort of pesticide into their growing methods”. Many consumers also report very different effects, even when they purchase what they believe to be the same strain multiple times. By growing at home, you know the product is free of harmful pesticides, and you can monitor the growing process to ensure consistency in the final product.
Additionally, growing cannabis at home can be a cost-effective solution for frequent cannabis users. The initial cost of a home grow setup can be high, but in the long run, it can save consumers a significant amount of money. According to a report by AmericanMarijuana.org, the average cost of a gram of cannabis is $10-$15 at a dispensary. A single plant can yield up to a pound of cannabis, which is equivalent to approximately 454 grams. This means that a single plant could potentially save consumers up to $6,800 per year.
Automation technologies - AI, robotics - have made it easier for people who don't have the expertise or time to grow cannabis at home. Smart home systems can control the lighting, temperature, odor, humidity, and other factors that are essential to the growing process, so plants can be grown any time of the year. Technology also allows individuals to monitor and control their grow from anywhere using their mobile devices, eliminating the need for someone to be there to constantly monitor the process.
Growing cannabis at home is an important option for those looking for high-quality, consistent, and pesticide-free cannabis. With the rise of home automation technologies, it’s easier and more accessible for consumers to grow cannabis at home. By doing so, you can save money and ensure that you are consuming a safe and high-quality product.
