When does cannabis stop being a fun habit and start becoming a long-term investment? For me it was a simple question of math.
My friends make fun of me all the time for being a math and science nerd, but the joke is on them! A firm grasp of numbers can help a person improve their life.
In my case, I started doing the math about how much weed I smoked. Then I worked up financial profiles for my friends, and how much money they spent on cannabis. After I worked it all out, I realized that collectively my pal and I spent a staggering sum of money every year on cannabis. If my pal and I were to take that money as a lump sum and invest it into a professional-grade cannabis growing operation, my pal and I would never have to spend another dime to get high. It’s a bold move, and requires work, but the numbers don’t lie. Investing large amounts of money in cannabis now would generate tens of thousands dollars worth of savings over time. If my pal and I did it right, and gradually increased the size of our cannabis crop, it could even generate a profit! Three of my friends decided to take the risk with me, and my friend and I sunk every dollar we had into getting quality cannabis cultivation equipment, and thousands of seeds. Finding marijuana seeds is easy, but finding the premium strains is much harder to do. I wish this story had a happy ending, but right now my pal and I are waiting for our first cannabis crop to mature. I have my fingers crossed that my pal and I end up with some killer marijuana plants.
