Welcome to the Growers Guide


Growing your own cannabis is simple, once you know how. Our step by step guide to how to grow cannabis is aimed at all levels of experience, from the newbie just starting out, to the more knowledgeable marijuana grower who wants to find new tips or read about new technologies.

And because growing cannabis is our passion and our lifestyle, we hope always to keep this info up to date and up to spec. The aim is to help you grow weed well, produce the biggest and best buds and enjoy a mellow smoke and toke. We think that experience in growing marijuana should be shared with all cannabis growers in order that all can use this knowledge. We don’t believe the hype and think that every new innovation should be proven before purchased! And because we can’t stop trying new methods of growing we test run as many new methods as space allows to help you get the info you need to make a buying decision.

You should remember that growing cannabis is illegal in some countries and check your local laws.

Mission Statement!
From marijuana seed to full budded weed, we are an online marijuana grow guide, grow shop and growing community where we try to pull together any useful information we can find to help growers everywhere get the best out of their cannabis. Happy Tokin


Hi there!

campo cultivatorGG2C has become a time consuming hobby for 2 years- but one I’m really proud of. When someone came up to me recently at Spannabis in Barcelona and said “hey! I know your site” it made all the hours writing this blog worthwhile. So too when we get emails thanking us for tips and advice. Luckily I love trying out new growing styles and kit so there’s always a backlog of things to write about! Leave comments if you have any suggestions for new posts ..

Summer is a busy season for the Growers Guide to Cannabis this year. Hopefully we’ll have time to write about all we’re doing but here’s a quick summary of what to look forward to in the weeks ahead.

medical cannabis medgomCan autoflowers work as medical marijuana?

If a loved one gets the awful big C diagnosis and wants to try cannabis oil (RSO) to help treat it, waiting for a full crop of high CBD strains like CBD Crew’s Skunk Haze may be a month too long. An autoflower that gives high CBD with seed to harvest of 65 days may be the answer. To find out how good the plant is Campo’s growing 45 of them in a mix of outdoors and in, so look forward to a grow report and future gas chromatography analysis on this one! We’ve also an interview with the breeders and lots more on the MEDGOM coming soon .

Autoflowers have come on leaps and bounds since I wrote my piece on autoflowers: a fad or the real thing? And in fact now there are so many good strains around its difficult to know which to recommend.

And we know too the fear that goes with ordering something quite expensive and slightly “dodgy” from far away .. rest assured all cannabis seeds are sent using breeders packs, hidden in gift packaging and with tracking info given. Orders are usually processed within 36 hours, but the amount of time it takes for the seeds to get to you depends in part on your country´s postal system!

You may have guessed that the growers guide team lives sleeps and breathes (and yes we DO inhale!) the art of growing cannabis. SO for us its been a dream come true to open our own little grow shop in our local town… We´ll be writing the story up soon, but its why we´ve not been that busy on the site recently, there´s been SO much to organise and do! On the plus side it now means we can sell direct to you guys the stuff we know works instead of offering it up as an affliate link. Anyway, more of this later …

Medical Marijuana:

The acceptance and use of medical marijuana is possibly the most interesting development in the toking world. GG2C has an expanding medical mj section, with news reports from Colorado and interviews with Jeff Ditchfield & Mel Thomas from Bud Buddies. 

We are developing a medical marijuana cannabis seeds selection too.

If anyone has something they would like to contribute on the healing properties of cannabis, we’d love to hear from you! Share your story with the world by contacting cc@growersguidetocannabis.com
