How many times have you heard someone say "I grow the best weed on the planet!" or something close to that? I sometimes forget that I live in a bubble. Maybe you don't even know anyone that grows cannabis. Most marijuana growers think they grow the best pot. For a long time I thought I was just in an industry full of prima donnas or ego maniacs but it's more of a "proud parent" syndrome. Lately I've seen people struggling with finding the perfect strain for their medical conditions and it seems that if they grow their own, it works for them better than any other cannabis they've had. The interaction between human and plant in the case of cannabis is magical. I think that cannabis IS addicting, not consuming cannabis, but growing it. Once hooked you are driven to learn more about this amazing plant. You become an expert at your strain. AND.....it's the best weed on the planet!
