I live in a state where it is legal to grow up to 12 cannabis plants on your property, but technically you cannot sell it unless you have a licensed dispensary, which I do not. Pic related: my first attempt at growing. I am expecting several pound of high quality marijuana by October. This is more than I can consume on my own, so now I am wondering (hypothetically) about selling it in the gray market to fuel my crypto investments. I can’t be bothered to sell it ounce by ounce (even though that would be much more profitable). How can I find a buyer who will hand me thousands of dollars cash for several pounds in one exchange? Or better yet BTC. I’m thinking that is the safest way to unload the product. Also, how does one theoretically launder this money? Again, all hypothetical.

You don't
It is too easy to grow, even with it being illegal the profit margins are worse than unemployment and minimum wage. For it too be mildly profitable you need to be able to make about 6 grows a year, harvesting around 10 kilogram and grow at around 40 cents a gram. Also the risk involved is retarded

Thank you for your reply. As you can see I am growing outdoors. Does that change the equation at all? I figure a big cost for most growers is electricity, which I don't have to worry about as I am using free sunshine. Also, I am not looking to make a career out of this. It’s like my other hobby of dog breeding. I dont expect it to make me rich. Its just a small stream of petty cash to braid my income. I have a day job.

>big cost for most growers is electricity
No, the big cost is logistics. You have two choices. For maximum profit you have to sell it in gram, which will take ages and the risk is astronomical because you have to deal with retards that can rat you out when being caught smoking their shit in a car on a McDonald parking lot. The other option is selling to distributors, which involves again multiple risks, you need to make the connections, hope they don't get ratted out and rat you out. Also you can't expect to earn the same profit. Kilo goes for about 1000 buck in those circles.

If it is just for hobby, you can make some extra bucks, sure, but again risk is retardedly high

Outdoor grows are ditch weed, I live in Canada so everything is legal but myself and everyone in my immediate circle still buy off individuals with indoor/hydroponic connections since it's better and cheaper at $8/g. I'm sure you can sell it but you'd want to do it bulk and anyone who knows what they're looking at wont want to pay much more than $2/g $900/pound price point for outdoor.

>> No.15052619

Idk man , ive seen some insane sungrown dank. Sure, most outdoor is ditch, but I am using high quality genetics (gelato 33) and good soil and nutes. Plus it is enclosed in a greenhouse , as you can see, which will minimize pest risk. Plus outdoor plants usually grow much larger, basically twice the size of indoor plants on average. In any case, i would not scoff at 900 usd per lb if thats all i could get. That will buy a nice alt stack.

But there are still more than 12 hours of sunlight per day. Wont they still stay in veg then? Also, I thought plants were supposed to continue getting taller and wider even into flowering, at least for the beginning part.

Good lord theres so many generate dopeheads on here

>> No.15052833


the reason outdoors grow bigger, is because theyre in the soil. yours are in containers,so the overall size is a function of the root mass.

You will probably also have to control the light to induce flowering ASAP, that way you avoid running the risk of the plants getting moldy if they are still flowering in October. People throw tarpaulins over their greenhouses for 12 hours to control the light- or so I understand.

My advice to you is to forget about selling and concentrate entirely on producing the best quality weed you can. It'll take time, but you'll get there, and by the time you do the quality will speak for itself, and it will fly out the door..

Grow the fuck up you junkies

>> No.15053150


Fuck off, pussy. It is 100% legal to grow in my state. This is no different than brewing your own beer or making wine at home.

Thanks for the advice, my friend. Yeah im worried about mold, especially since it is getting so goddamn hot and humid in the greenhouse. I just installed a 16 inch oscillating fan, which will hopefully help move the stagnant air around and lower the mold risk. I will look into the light cycle manipulation via tarp. Oh, and in case you were wondering, I am using 30 gallon pots, which I thought was pretty big. I know the pros are using up to 200 gallon smart pots, but my greenhouse is only 7 feet tall, so I didn't want to run the risk of growing massive trees (or more likely wasting soil if they fail). Though, as you can see, they appear indica dominant , so i guess height isnt that big of an issue? In any case, even if I only pull 2 zips per plant, I will be happy. I rip through an ounce per month with my wife, so if these plants can supply our personal needs for close to a year, I will still save a good chunk by not being beholden to my dealer.

Btw, the 2 shorter plants in the front row are about 2-3 weeks younger than the ones in the back row. Unfortunately a bunch of my first batch of seedlings died, so I had to germinate new ones later on. How badly will this fuck up my harvest schedule? I figure in nature it wouldnt be uncommon to have plant of different ages side by side, right?

Heroin is a junkie drug. Cannabis is literally medicine for many people. Its only a matter of time until it is federally decriminalized. Pretty soon, almost the entire country will be legal on the state level, at which point it will be insanity for the federal government not to follow suit. Furthermore, the federal government is not going to do shit to me. They are not hunting down small time home growers. They’re not even shutting down dispensaries anymore. Get with the times.

The differing size wont matter- they will both flower the same when the light cycle hits 12/12. The only difference will be the yeild, but as most of the plants growth is during the stretch period of early flowering anyway, the smaller ones will do just fine.

I would also recommend you 'learn' to take cuttings, which would be before you induce flowering. I say 'learn', because its not really difficult- just follow the instructions and it will work like magic.

The great advantage of cuttings over seeds, apart fro the obvious reduced costs, is that growing a few successive generations of a genetically identical plant will step up your growing knowledge in the most efficient way: you can apply lessons from this grow to the next and change up the things you want to do differently, while being sure that is the only variable, because your genetic stock is the same.

Don't you have some kind of venting on your green house? Is it a DIY? Oscillating fans just going to move the air around and pretty much a waste of power. Install a basic passive vent with flyscreen instead. That would be both cheaper, and better.

Thanks for the reply. You have been very helpful. Yeah, I am reading up on cloning in preparation for the next grow. Im gonna go for 12 plants next time since that is the max you are allowed to grow at home in my state.

Yeah, the greenhouse has a small roof window that can be opened. I hadn't installed a fly screen, but I think I will do that now, It is the Harbor Freight 6x8 foot greenhouse, which I modified by adding some concrete foundation piers and wooden base (to increase the height and make it more wind-resistant) plus some shelving. Pic related; it looks very similar to this (pic from the guide I followed).

They are if you sell in kilos. And it is worth it because you don't have to deal with dozens of small time dealers and stoners, that let your risk rise exponentially. Also your calculation is not 100% true. The distributors sell to smaller distributors for around 5 to 6 a g, so they make about 4 dollar on a g. As said above, weed growing and selling is not too profitable. And with taxes I don't want to know how small the margin is

Yep, the farmer is always the bitch, that is why most illegal weed comes from south of the border or in Europe from North Africa.
