Assumption Five: You’re ABSOLUTELY AMPED and CAN’T WAIT TO GET STARTED.

Important! Make sure you have enough outlets to supply the tent. You might need to add an extra sub-panel to cope with the extra demand. If in doubt, ask a professional.

The company conveniently divides its seed selection into various categories to help consumers shop according to what they are looking for. These categories include the following:

Typically, indica strains are the opposite of sativa strains, providing body relaxation and can also be helpful in relieving pain. Homegrown has a great variety of indica seeds to choose from with varying levels of CBD and THC.

Sativa Seeds

For the purpose of this review, we will be looking at cannabis seeds in the “variety” category. When you click on any strain, Homegrown provides a very in-depth and detailed description of what to expect, including information on CBD and THC content, flowering time, height, effects, fragrance and flavor, and lots more.

While researching Homegrown for this review, we saw the germination guarantee mentioned several times. If any seeds fail to sprout within 90 days after the delivery date, you may contact the customer service team to request a reimbursement. If between 10% – 50% of your seeds didn’t germinate, points of equal value to the faulty seeds will be added to your Stash loyalty account. If over 50% don’t germinate, the company will resend your seeds.

Homegrown has a large selection of high THC seeds to choose from, varying in potency, length of high, and type of high. Some of those with the highest THC concentration include American Haze x California Haze, Badazz Rolex, Amnesia x Nicole Kush, and Skywalker Ghost x Triangle Kush. Generally, high THC levels indicate that the strain will have strong psychoactive effects.

But in recent years, cannabis has undergone another major shift. A sizeable share of demand is now met by small-scale growers, mainly supplying themselves and friends and acquaintances. This has become possible for various reasons, including improvements to growing technology, new strains more suited to indoor growing, and the wealth of information and expertise on the internet. As such, many cannabis users no longer depend on traditional drug dealers.

In 2012, we surveyed growers in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the UK and the US to find out more about small-scale growing, and how and why they these people got involved. Most turned out to be regular people – with normal jobs, normal family arrangements, and no more involvement in drug dealing or other crime than any other section of the public.

It is hard to measure this accurately, but the Independent Drug Monitoring Unit estimated that by 2012, 80% of the cannabis used in the UK was grown here – up from 30% in the late 1990s. It is probably well over 90% now.

There is some interesting variation between countries in the findings. In Italy, more than one-quarter of respondents had started growing since the pandemic started – noticeably above the global average. Meanwhile, one-third of Portuguese respondents cited a shortage of cannabis during COVID-19 as a reason for growing their own.

This trend has been gaining momentum during the pandemic. So is this permanent or will the old supply chains reassert themselves when countries return to some kind of normality?
