There was a time when I tried growing cannabis

I tried growing pot plants during the COVID lockdown.

It was terribly exhausting in this city.

We genuinely had many outbreaks, and I was under quarantine for over three months. I had way too much time on my hands, and so little to occupy myself, I made the decision to germinate all the old seeds I had been collecting. My place has a small fenced-in backyard, so I just planted the seeds in the center of the yard to see what would happen. Only a few of the seeds sprouted and out of those few none of them grew to maturity. It’s a good thing that soon after that the local pot shop came back online for curbside pickup orders. I could never have lasted as a farmer, because even handling only a small amount of marijuana plants was too much for me to handle. Cannabis has a reputation for being relatively easy to grow, but that was not my experience at all. Instead I will leave the botany to the scientists, and just get my weed at the pot shop like a normal person. When I have the money to spend I appreciate getting premium strains like OG Kush or Blue Dream. When money is incredibly tight I get a lesser strain, one that maybe isn’t as potent but will still pack enough of a cannabis punch to get me the high I am seeking. The cannabis I grew at my place certainly was too seedy and stemmy to smoke, even if it did smell especially nice. The pot shop has better products, so I don’t need to expend my time and energy on weed moving forward.
