Which States in the US currently allow for Legal Home Grown Cannabis?

Which States in the US currently allow for Legal Home Grown Cannabis?

Did you know there are over 15 States where you can Legally Grow Cannabis at Home?!

(Map Below)


As of 2017 there are a total of 16 US States plus the District of Columbia, which allow Medical Cannabis Patients to grow a certain amount of marijuana at their domicile.  What this means is all you have to do in order to legally grow cannabis at home is purchase a Medical Marijuana card in your residential state, and you are good to go!  I recommend doing research on the particular laws and regulations on home cannabis grows for the county you live in, as these rules can change drastically from county to county.  

It is important to understand your specific states home cultivation limits so you can grow within the limits and stay legal!  These rules also vary by which state you are in, and are as follows:

  1. Alaska - If you are over 21 years old, you are allowed to posses, grow, process, or transport no more than six cannabis plants at once, with no more than three of those plants being mature or in the flowering state.
  2. Arizona - Medical marijuana patients are allowed to cultivate up to twelve plants if they live over 25 miles from the nearest medical marijuana dispensary.
  3. California -  Adults over 21 years old may cultivate up to six plants per household.  Medical Marijuana Patients may cultivate up to six mature cannabis plants or up to twelve immature cannabis plants at one time.  Patients can get a specific recommendation from a MMJ Doctor, granting permission to grow a larger amount at home!
  4. Colorado - Anyone over the age of 21 my grow up to six plants per person, with no more than three of those plants being in the flowering stage at any particular time.  There is a limit of twelve total plants per household, regardless of the number of residents.  
  5. District of Columbia - If you are at least 21 years old you can cultivate up to six marijuana plants at one time, with no more than three being in flower at a time.

  6.  Hawaii - A Medical Marijuana Patient may grow no more than seven plants at one time, regardless of if it is in flower or not.

  7. Maine - Adults can grow up to six flowering plants, up to 12 immature cannabis plants, and an unlimited amount of seedlings at any particular time.

  8. Massachusett -  Adults over the age of 21 may cultivate up to six plants per person at their residence and it can only be used for personal use.  Plants must be out of site and not visible to the general public.  

  9. Michigan - A primary caregiver or Medical Marijuana Patient who has been issued and possesses a registry identification card can grow up to twelve plants at a time.  They must be kept away and out of site in a locked room or grow area.  

  10. Montana - A Medical Marijuana Patient may posses up to 4 flowering cannabis plants, and twelve seedlings at anyone time. 

  11. Nevada - A medical marijuana patient may grow up to twelve marijuana plants at one time.  All twelve plants can be in vegetation or flower, it doesn't matter!

  12. New Mexico - Medical Marijuana Patients can purchase a growing license, which must be posted near the growing area at all times, and grow ups to four plants and twelve seedlings at one one time.  The plants may all be in vegetation or flower, it doesn't matter.

  13. North Dakota - A Medical Marijuana Patient that resides 40+ miles away from a marijuana dispensary may be allowed to grow up to eight cannabis plants at any one time.

  14. Oregon - Recreational marijuana consumers 21 years of age and older may grow up to four (4) plants per residence at one time. A Medical Marijuana Patient in Oregon may cultivate up to six cannabis plants at one time.

  15. Rhode Island - Medical Marijuana Patients may cultivate up to twelve plants at any one time and must grow those plants indoors.  All twelve plants may be in vegetation or flower, it doesn't matter!  

  16. Vermont - A Medical Marijuana Patient may cultivate no more than two flowering cannabis plants and seven nonflowering cannabis plants at one time.

  17. Washington - Medical Marijuana Patients may grow cannabis at home and are limited to six plants at any one time.  Patients can request a higher plant limit, which can reach as high as growing fifteen plants at once, regardless of the state they are in!

                                    GreenHouse Cannabis Grow

Now that you know which states are legal for growing cannabis at home and their different limits, I would like to answer a few more questions most people ask when they are getting into growing their own cannabis at home.  Those questions are:  

  1. Why should I grow at home instead of just buying from the dispensary?
  2. Should I grow indoors, outdoors or in a Greenhouse?
  3. How many plants should I grow?

Growing your own cannabis at home can seem like a really difficult and expensive task, that would result in little reward, but that couldn't be further from the truth!  Not only is it possible to get your own cannabis grow set up for under $200, but if done correctly you will never have to buy marijuana again and can smoke as often as you desire!  For me, I haven't had to purchase cannabis in over 5 years and I only spend a couple minutes per day on my plants.

                                Indoor Cannabis Grow Tent

When making the decision of where to grow, it comes down to preference and what kind of space you have available.  I prefer growing outside in a greenhouse, because I live in a sunny place, have a big backyard, and can take advantage of the earth's natural resources.  Some one who lives in Seattle for example, may want to grow indoors as it is always raining, and their may not be a lot of outdoor space where they live.  With indoor growing, you have much more control over the environment and don't even have to walk outside to tend to your plants.  The downside is indoor growing requires more electricity and lighting equipment when compared to greenhouse growing.

The final question most first time growers ask, "How many plants should I Grow?"  In this case the more the better, because the difference in difficulty of maintaining 1 plant and 6 plants is slim to none.  Plus, having a large yield is never a bad thing, so why not optimize all the grow space you have.  Remember, each grow cycle takes a least a couple of months.

You should now have a much better understand on the laws and limits of Growing Cannabis at Home, and hopefully you now have a better idea on the size and style of grow you would like to start out with.  You can also view our different Indoor & Greenhouse Starter Kits by clicking the button below!

That is all I have for now, but as always thank you for reading and HAPPY GROWING!!!

Product Launch: Seed & Clone Starting Kit

Seed & Clone Starting Kit now Available on the GBG Store!


Hello and welcome back for another Episode of GreenBox Grown! Today I am exciting to announce the launch of our Seed Starting Kit, a package every supply you will need to germinate your seeds and grow them through the seedling stage all the way to Vegetation! So let's look into the different products that this package comes with.

First you will see the 45W LED Grow Light, which is the idea strength lighting for growing seedlings. Using too powerful of a light will shock and kill the seedlings, ending your cannabis grow before it even started. What's nice about this light is you can still use it later as add light to your more powerful grow lights. Every watt counts!

Next is the humidity dome and tray. This will be where your seedlings live for the first few weeks of their lives, and is used to create a humid environment, which is ideal for their growth. What is great about this kit is not only does it work with starting seeds, but it can also be used for turning cuttings into clones. All you need to do is add a rooting gel to the order, and you are good to go.

The next product that comes in the kit is a package of rapid rooters. These are peat plugs which you will plant the seeds into, and they will sprout from! It is a very exciting process and happens really fast, so watch closely. Finally we have our strain labels, which are used to label which strain each plant is, so you can keep track throughout the entirety of the grow.  

Once you have your seed starting kit and seeds, you are ready to begin the germination process. Visit this link to watch step by step videos on successfully germinating your seeds and growing through the seedling phase:  

That is all I have for now, but as always thank you for reading and HAPPY GROWING!

Grow Update:  Week 5 of Flower for the Basic Grows!

Grow Update: Week 5 of Flower for the Basic Grows!

Week 5 of Flower Update for the Indoor & Outdoor Grows!



What is up Cannabis Growers, and welcome back for another episode of GreenBox Grown! Today is the very first day of Week 5 of Flower for my Basic Cannabis Grow, so I am going to give you guys another update!  

Remember there is both an Greenhouse Grow and a Indoor Grow I will be showing you today, and by Basic Grow I mean these plants were only topped once or twice and minimal LST was used. Also, they had a short vegetation period of 4 weeks.

First I will show you guys the Green House plants, which include 1 Chocolate Hashberry, 1 Pre-98 Bubba, and 1 Coco Monkey Balls. As you can see in the video, all 3 plants have several tops, and the 2 larger plants have 10+ colas! Even after a short vegetation period, you can see how far a little bit of LST and Topping can go!

You can also see how large and dense the buds are getting, and when you get up close you can see how frosty they are getting from all of the trichome growth! Unfortunately you guys can't smell from home, but the plants are starting to give off that lovely scent they have and it is getting strong. I would say about 3-4 more weeks and then these buds will be ready to come down for harvest!

So now that you have seen the Greenhouse plants, lets check out the Indoor. There are only 2 plants in the indoor tent but they are growing exceptionally well! In fact, you can see I had to use string to hold the buds up as the branches weren't strong enough to support their weight! Besides that tiny issue, the indoor buds are growing as an extremely rapid rate and also have a wonderful scent to them!

The only issue with the indoor grow, is since the plants don't receive like from all angles, the plants do not grow as many buds on the sides and lower parts of the trunk, like we saw the greenhouse plants doing. However, as a tradeoff the top buds on the indoor plants tend to be extremely potent and flavorful. You can see how developed the indoor buds have become over the last couple of weeks, and it is even noticeable that the white epistles are starting to turn orange and curl in. Another sign your buds are reaching maturity! As with the plants in the greenhouse, I would say 3-4 more weeks before these guys are ready for harvest.

That is all I have for now on my Basic Indoor and Outdoor Cannabis Grows, but I will be back with another update in a few weeks! In that video I will be showing video clips of the trichomes and explaining which stage of growth they are at, and I will cover when to start your flush!  

Until then, Thank You for watching and HAPPY GROWING!

How to Support Heavy Cannabis Buds

How to Support Heavy Cannabis Buds

Are big buds causing your branches to fold over?

(Here's how to fix that)


Hello and welcome back for another episode of GreenBox Grown! In my last video I discussed how you can use metal stakes to give support to your cannabis buds and branches. Well this week I will be showing you a different method to accomplish a similar goal, and that is using string as support and to pull the branches and buds back up to where they should be.  

It is really rare to have to use this technique as it really is only for a unique scenario. So far, the only time I have had to use this tactic is from buds causing the branches to fold over. What happened was I started the grow with the lights too high, and so the branches stretched out to be long and skinny. Once the buds started growing in, they became too heavy for the branches and started to actually fold and snap the stems.  

To save the plants and buds, I took string and tied it to the highest part of the branch that didn't have bud growing on it. Then I tied the other end of the string to the support frame of the grow tent to pull it into the upright position. It is also a good idea to use this technique as a way to pull branches away from each other and into open spaces. What this does is it creates space for the buds to grow even larger, and to absorb more light for even more growth!  

When tying the string to the plant itself, be gentle and don't do any damage to leaves and such. Cannabis plants are much more fragile in the flower phase as they can no longer grow more vegetation. Also be sure to tie the knot so it isn't too tight around the stem, as this can lead to damage. When you tie the other end of the string to the support frame, be sure to leave some slack so the branch is not being forcefully tugged on. This too will lead to severe damage after some time.

Once you have all of the damaged buds strung and tied to the support frame, you are ready to carry on with your grow just as before! Be very cautious of the strings when maintaining your plants, as you don't want to bump and tug on them by accident. It would be easy enough to damage the buds that way. 

That is all I have for now, but as always thank you for reading and

HAPPY GROWING!

How to Properly Stake your Cannabis Plants for Support

How to Properly Stake your Cannabis Plants for Support

Stake Your Cannabis Plants for Support & Optimal Growth!


Hello and welcome back for another Episode of GreenBox Grown! Today I will be showing you how to stake your Cannabis Plants properly for optimal growth and bud development. It is important to understand that there are many different ways to stake your plants as well as a lot of different types of stakes. All methods and materials work, just remember to be gentle and careful with the plants and to not put them in a stressful position.  

There are 2 main reasons you will need to stake your plant. The first is your plant may be leaning or falling over from the main trunk and in that case you will want to stake it back to the upright position. I usually use metal stakes, which come in different lengths, and the have a loop at the end for hooking branches. I will hook one of these stakes the the midway point of the cannabis plants main trunk and will position it to be upright. Not only is this important because it prevents the plant from toppling over, but it relieves a lot of stress from the root zone and allows the plant to grow at a faster rate!

The second reason you will need to stake a plant is because individual branches may be falling over or too have to be supported by the main part of the plant. A lot of times this happens when buds become to heavy and the branches can no longer support them. All you need to do in this case is take your stake and loop the end around the droopy branch. Then stand the branch back up with the stake and you are good to go! I like to either stick the bottom of the stake on the floor of the grow room so it is standing up right, or for more support I will put it in the dirt of the pot. If you follow this method, be sure to only put the stake in around the edges of the pot so you do not damage any of the roots. This is very important!

Another point I like to bring up when discussing plant staking, is spacing. If you have to stake up several plants in a specific area, try to space them out instead of bunching them up. This will allow them to absorb more light and grow larger buds. If you bunch them up, they can begin to rot and spread mold which could result in a complete ending of your crop! Staking your droopy buds is also important because if you don't and they get too heavy, the branch can snap and break which could also lead to infection and the end of your crop.

Overall, staking your cannabis plants can be a really handy technique for keeping a healthy grow. That is why it is important to follow the techniques outlined above and to never let your heavy branches hang for too long.

Thank you for reading and Happy Growing!
