With more opportunities for Americans to grow their own marijuana without fear of going to prison, there has been a monumental increase in interest of learning the science (and art) behind marijuana horticulture.  It’s fairly easy to lose hundreds, even thousands of dollars with a brand new start-up grow op. In truth, it can be either extremely lucrative or a horrible nightmare, depending on the care and time you put forth.

The Marijuana Business

Marijuana experts who put in the proper work in education and eventually practice can go on to earn six-figure salaries, easily.  As more states legalize, the more botanists and farmers are needed to maximize yields and, ultimately, profit margins.

The key is to get in while the getting is good. As the more established markets in California, Colorado, or Washington grow more saturated with competition, the states that follow will be ripe for young entrepreneurs.  Despite any know-how one may have, commercial cultivation is a process in and of itself.

Popular Marijuana Literature

“Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower’s Bible” and “Marijuana Botany: An Advanced Study: The Propagation and Breeding of Distinctive Cannabis” are two big, beefy books that marijuana experts swear by for both newcomers and experienced growers.  These books will teach you everything there is to know about growing, maintaining, and cultivating at the highest yields.

It’s nearly impossible to learn what the exact method is to grow every variety of marijuana out there, but by following these guides with a bit of trial and error, you’ll at least be on the way to avoiding huge investment losses.
