My Grandpa Jerry used to be a hippie, back in the “free love” days of the 60s. Once they started the draft for Vietnam Jerry went underground, and spent a few years floating around Canada. Eventually he settled down and started a family. He’s a very chill guy, and always insisted I call him Jerry even when I was a little kid. Last year I graduated college with a degree in botany, but no real direction in life. On a whim I drove to my grandparents house under the guise of paying them a weekend visit. But I had an ulterior motive. I pulled Jerry aside one day, and asked him to teach me the old ways of growing medical cannabis. Everything I had learned about medical cannabis came from books and tutorials, I didn’t have first-hand experience. Also, I thought that Jerry would have some tips and tricks that modern medical cannabis growers don’t know. Between my college education in botany and Jerry’s extensive amount of cannabis information, we could be an unbeatable team! Jerry was eager to work on this project with me, and even offered to let me grow medical cannabis on his property. We wanted to grow a lot of different strains of medical cannabis, so we needed a lot of space to work with. Every day I learn something new, because Jerry has such a wealth of cannabis knowledge and he is excited to pass it on to me. In a few weeks we have our first medical cannabis harvest, and I will write another blog to tell you how it turned out.
