Medical Cannabis Research Act of 2018

With the new legislation by two dozen different federal lawmakers, and as well as Matt Gaetz and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, they have finally passed The Medical Cannabis Research Act of 2018.

Hopefully, this will be a start of the wide medical marijuana use all over the world.

From my observations based on traveling to cannabis fairs and pot gardens worldwide for many years, growing cannabis for personal use is on the rise as more people discover the virtues of creating their own “homegrown.” Police crackdowns push regular consumers away from the black market while economic downturns convince more of them to become self-sufficient smokers.

The same pressures have driven pot seed breeders and advanced cultivators to create new hybrids, growing techniques, and stealth products to stay one step ahead of the authorities.

The real secret is that growing cannabis for your own use is quite simple; provide the proper environment including lighting, nutrients, humidity, air movement and pest control, and the plants will produce many ounces for a small fraction of current prices. Continue reading here..
