Honest, intelligent, and approachable, Grow Your Own combats the inaccurate stereotypes that are again being used to bolster the case for prohibition.

The benefits of cannabis are undeniable―medicinally, sure, but also for stress, for creativity, and for relaxation. And as any homebrewer, winemaker, or backyard gardener can tell you, there’s a particular joy in doing it yourself.

Whether you’re new to cannabis and need to walk through the basics, or you’re an experienced grower looking to hone your techniques, Grow Your Own provides all the background and instruction you need to set up a grow space, raise your plants, and harvest your buds. It will teach you how to choose a strain based on its flavors and effects, how to to manage insects and molds without the use of pesticides, and how to mix just the right soil. But Grow Your Own will also give you a primer on the myriad ways to enjoy cannabis―from carving an apple pipe to baking a delicious batch of pot brownies. With photography, visual aids, and illustrations from Allen Crawford (Whitman Illuminated), Grow Your Own makes cultivating cannabis as accessible as it is rewarding.

Praise

  • “Fun, informative, and stylishly designed, this guidebook positions marijuana cultivation as a legitimate, high (no pun intended) end, enjoyable hobby in the style of brewing beer or growing orchids.”

    Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

  • “A relatable, friendly introduction to the weed world . . . Unprecedented approachability and comprehensive scope.”

    Willamette Week

  • Grow Your Own: Understanding, Cultivating, and Enjoying Cannabis, by the team behind the high-end grow-op Raven Grass, in Olympia, Washington, helps you do exactly as advertised, with easy-to-follow, elegantly illustrated instructions.”

    Esquire

  • “This is a beautifully made and laid-out book, the combined efforts of four authors who used their expertise to cover a wider range of topics than you would normally find in a grow book.”

    Portland Mercury

  • Grow Your Own is ostensibly a book about growing pot, but the 200-page guide is as much a primer to the world of cannabis as it is a step-by-step instructional. . . From terpenes and cannabinoids to retail products, a reference book like this is a great gift for both the weed-nervous newbie and the die-hard weed affcionado in your life.”
