On August 24, 2016, yet another new law for medicinal marijuana had changed. Licensed medicinal marijuana users are again permitted to grow a limited number of medicinal marijuana plants for their own consumption. Yay!!! Great news for those licensed users! (No, we don't judge here.)
Being able to grow your own medication has many benefits to the licensed user. Some of the benefits include:
Convenience - medication is grown at your fingertips, (or as close to it as possible), as opposed to ordering and waiting for postal delivery or finding transportation to the not-always-so-local dispensary.
Affordability - It is much less expensive to grow your own than it is to buy from a dispensary. Some dispensaries have minimum purchase quantities that sometimes exceed the need. Or, quite often, exceed the budget. I am told, a plant for personal consumption, grown indoors or outdoors, can cost approximately $20-50/plant - depending on type of growing method, cost of seeds, equipment used, supplies, tools, and electricity costs. Of course, some of the expenses are reduced with the number of plants that are grown. Licensed medicinal marijuana users who are abiding by the law, who is, "someone prescribed a gram a day could grow two plants outdoors or five plants indoors to be able to supply themselves". The approximate value of the end product of one plant, depends on the skill level of the grower and the types of plants grown, but on average the yield could have a dispensary retail value of anywhere from $200-800. That is money that stays in the patients' pockets! Imagine having to pay that regularly for your medication that isn't covered by any benefit plan!!! It makes more sense to grow it yourself, for yourself.
Versatility - you can do with it what you like. Not all medicinal marijuana users consume it by smoking it. Many can't. However you can reap the benefits by preparing it in baked goods, candies, oils, etc. Buying from a dispensary means you are limited to what they offer. Not all dispensaries offer what licensed users need.
Confidence in the medication - control of how it's grown and what it is grown with. No more questioning if it was grown organically, or if toxic poisons were used in the fertilizers or for the pesticides. Were they sprayed with a harmful pesticides??? Are you consuming these chemicals in conjunction with your medication???? Is your medication actually doing you more harm than good through the chemicals that it's grown with???
