The New Craft Cannabis Grower: A Profile

Passionate and Invested

The new home-grower is passionate. They relish the process of planting, nurturing, and harvesting their own cannabis plants. They view cannabis cultivation as an engaging hobby, not just a means to an end. For them, the satisfaction derived from producing their own premium cannabis, the joy of interacting with their plants, and the thrill of learning new techniques outweighs the convenience of purchasing commercially-grown cannabis.

Discerning and Knowledge-Seeking

New craft cannabis growers are discerning. They see through the 'bro science' that plagues many online forums and instead look for proven, effective products. These growers prioritize learning and understand that good knowledge is the key to a bountiful harvest. They are quick to adopt innovative tools like BudTrainer's BudClips that simplify and enhance their gardening experience.

Law-Abiding and Responsible

These are not your stereotypical covert 'basement growers.' They waited patiently for legalization and now that it's here, they are ready to embrace this new hobby openly and responsibly. Gone are the days of euphemisms and code words like "tomatoes" - these growers are proud of their craft and unafraid to seek and share advice about cannabis cultivation.
