I copied my marijuana grow room design from a user on an internet forum

I love utilizing the internet for tips and information on DIY projects.

Between forums and videos, I can usually find all of the information I need by just pulling out my smartphone.

If you want to get takeout food from restaurants right now, many of them make you wait in a queue in the parking lot while letting in only a small number of customers at any time. When it’s time for you to go inside to pick up your order, the staff sends you a text message. While I wait, I like to browse the internet for information on whatever my current DIY project is at any given moment. Yesterday while I was waiting in my car for my takeout order, I was browsing websites like Youtube and Reddit to find information on growing cannabis. I considered trying to grow a few plants in my garden, but I’d rather have better climate control with lightning, water, and nutrients. I don’t want to lose all of my plants from deer eating them either. I have a guest bedroom that is only ever used as overflow storage for the rest of the house. My goal was to start with half of the room and expand as I buy more irrigation equipment and high performance lightning. I don’t have more money to buy anything beyond what’s needed for a handful of plants. If I can adapt a great grow-room design to my space, I think I can create something that can be expanded as time goes on. It might seem like I’m sinking my money into an expensive project, but the cost of marijuana from the dispensary is high. I’m hoping I can save significant amounts of money growing all of my own marijuana.

Pot farming

Growing weed is not easy

I’m shocked at the level of detail that goes into cultivating plus harvesting plants of any kind.

Farming is as much of an exact science as anything else. Even the people who have l acquired the knowledge after having it passed down from generation to generation come with a set of strict rules plus instruction when they plant plus harvest vegetables plus other profitable crops. It takes patience plus dedication, plus is entirely not for someone who isn’t attentive to hour details. My Grandpa ran a farm that he inherited from his own father. The farm had been passed down through three generations prior to when my Grandpa closed it down when I was a child. My dad plus his siblings were all encouraged to attend school, so none of them were interested in continuing the family legacy with the farm. Despite this, my dad retained an interest in the process behind plant cultivation since he was taking biology courses in undergraduate school. Eventually he went down the path to become a full time botanist before he was introduced to cannabis in graduate school. He was amazed by the complexity of the marijuana plant plus all of it’s interacting compounds found inside. He couldn’t think how a single strain of cannabis could be so uncommon to another strain. From that point moving forward, my father wanted to be in the cannabis cultivation industry. The problem is, he had to transfer to a single of the only states at the time that had legalized the use of miarjuana… Nowadays he works for a supplier here in our house state plus is the head of the weather conditions control department that handles air conditioning plus dehumidification for the grow rooms.

Large scale cannabis grow operations require around the clock maintenance

I was surprised about the immense degree or work involved at an orchard or fruit processing facility.

I toured a citrus farming operation years ago when I was in college taking science courses. It was interesting to see what goes into getting oranges and lemons sitting on the shelves at the grocery stores. There are endless rows of trees in the citrus groves that have to be painstakingly cared after and nurtured while they take a beating from the unpredictable climate and weather changes in our region. If it gets too cold during the winter season, it could compromise large portions of their fruit crops. That’s why they have around the clock cameras to monitor every aspect of the cultivation process 24hours a day. My friend who works for a medical marijuana company told me that their indoor and outdoor grow facilities are similar in this regard. Not only do the large scale cannabis grow operations need around the clock surveillance, they also need around the clock maintenance. They have a night crew whose sole purpose is to make sure everything is operating safely while the main crew is at home sleeping. If there’s a power outage outside of the cannabis growing facility, the backup generators inside will switch on. This way the growing operation is never interrupted by unforeseen variables like electricity outages or extreme weather. Every part of the marijuana growing process has been infused with the scientific advances we have made over the past century. Never before have we had the ability to farm cannabis like we do today. The quality of the cannabis at the dispensaries gets better as the growing process improves.

I’m looking for employment at a cannabis growing facility

Once I was laid off from our call center job last week, I figured I could simply find work in retail or something similar.

Surprisingly, since our state raised its minimum wage last year, a lot of entry level positions are either already taken or are extremely competitive.

I was able to get space time work at a grocery store while I continued to look for another full time well paying job. As several say, when you’re desperate for steady work, finding a job becomes a job itself. You get in the habit of scouring numerous websites and other posted listings to find some diamond in the rough. I had little advantage with this approach, and then I decided to take a long shot and begin reaching out to a few random companies. The first company was a music retailer that operates a website and sells their inventory out of a warehouse. All sales are done electronically and are packaged into boxes to be shipped out directly to customers’ homes. Unluckily, they weren’t looking for additional assistance. Then the minute company, this time an important recreational marijuana company in our state, was looking for help at their growing facility. They needed help trimming and packaging cannabis flower buds after they’re harvested from the cultivation rooms. All of the things that are inside the important facility is controlled and set to a steady and consistent indoor temperature. Most often the air conditioning is a bit colder than what I like, however it has to remain that way to prevent microscopic mold spores from getting on the dry cured flower buds. It’s taking time to finish our training, however so far I like now working at a marijuana farming facility.

Busted for driving across state lines with marijuana

I didn’t know it was illegal to drive across state lines with marijuana until I got stopped by the police.

I wasn’t using marijuana at the time, but the officer told me that the car smelled like weed.

He used that as an excuse to search the vehicle. I had my legal marijuana prescription in the back of the car in my suitcase. It was in the original packaging from the medical marijuana dispensary. It was in the trunk of the car and in no place that I would have been able to access the item. I was on my way home from having Thanksgiving dinner with my mom. I stayed for a couple of days, so I took my medical marijuana prescription. It’s the same as taking my blood pressure medicine and birth control pill daily, but those items aren’t illegal and weed is in some places. When the police officer found my medical marijuana prescription, the guy acted like he found five pounds of heroin in the back of my car. He drew his weapon and started yelling for me to get down on the ground. I was scared and terrified and I did exactly what he told me to do. He put me in handcuffs and took me to the county jail for booking. I spent the night in jail, but the case was dismissed the next morning by a sympathetic judge. I still can’t believe that the cops treated me like that over a legal prescription drug from a state that borders this one. It makes me want to file a lawsuit against the police department.

I’m moving and my mom and dad are unhappy

My mom and dad are really unhappy with me right now.

I decided to pack up all of my things and move to the other side of the state.

For the first time in my life, my parents are going to be more than a phone call away. After I finished high school, I started working for a small construction company. I was making really good money and I bought a house. I lived across the street from my mom and dad for thirteen years. Then I got hurt on the job and I couldn’t work in that physical career anymore. I took a job working in a medical marijuana dispensary. I became certified to take medical marijuana as a prescription for chronic pain from the accident. My parents were really unhappy when they found out that I was using marijuana. They were even more upset when I found out that I started working at the dispensary. Now they are ready to chain me to the barn. My mom and dad think that marijuana is affecting my decision making ability. They think that marijuana is making me crazy. They don’t understand that I am unhappy here. I have a chance to live with one of the guys that used to work with me at the medical marijuana clinic. I already accepted a job with another cannabis dispensary. I interviewed on the phone with the manager who sounds totally fun and cool. I wish my mom and dad were happy for me, but instead they try to make me feel guilty for wanting to get out of this small town.

Cannabis changes the paradigm

When I was much younger, I liked being able to have some fun with recreational marijuana. Those days were great. Even though recreational marijuana was not as accepted as it is today, most of us were doing it. However, we certainly had to be careful. Plus, the sneaking around and the stigma associated with recreational marijuana was a most unwanted aspect. Perhaps this had something to do with me walking away from recreational marijuana when I started my career. That and the fact that it could cost me my job if I came up hot on a drug test. However, I would still dabble a bit here and there when friends had some cannabis products. But now that I have raised my family and am secure in my career, I am making some changes. Recreational marijuana is back on my radar. This is due in large part that I can readily access it now. The laws have finally met with reality and recreational marijuana is now legal where I live. So, a buddy of mine and I decided that we’d have a look. Well let me tell you, that was one of the better decisions I’ve made in a long time. First of all, the shopping experience in the local cannabis spot is just great. The place is immaculate, well lit and there are helpful people everywhere. It didn’t take two or three minutes before a staff member was there helping me figure out just what would be best for me. He guided me toward a few cannabis products of which I bought some samples. That week, I enjoyed the cannabis and really, really felt better than I had felt in years.

Thankful to be shopping for cannabis products

Their source is really, really good and I find this cannabis strain to be one of my all time favorites

I have had the pleasure of recreational marijuana for a lot of years now. But, to call it strictly recreational marijuana use is to miss the point. Using cannabis for me is much more about balance and perspective. While plenty of people love to cut loose and have a great time, too often it goes to the excess. That’s one of the reasons I have always been careful with alcohol. It’s like I don’t realize that I’ve had too much until I actually have too much. It’s not this way with marijuana and never has been. I haven’t ever had the urge to imbibe in too much cannabis. But, that might have also been because it was so hard to get. Now that I can simply walk into the local cannabis spot and shop for cannabis products, access to cannabis is no longer so arduous. In fact, I love going to the local cannabis spot. And not just for the cannabis products. There is also a cannabis cafe there and I love to hang out in such a great spot. I like to meet friends at the cannabis cafe for some treats and fellowship. Then, I do a bit of shopping for cannabis products before heading home. I particularly love the Blue Dream that I get at this marijuana business. Their source is really, really good and I find this cannabis strain to be one of my all time favorites. Honestly, I am just so glad that I live in a region where this is even possible. It helps me maintain a perspective that I cherish.
