Growing your own weed can be a rocky road but if you have the time and the patience for it, then you will need to take into account several aspects:

1Choose your seeds well. From relaxing to energizing, from creativity inducing to cancer pain relieving there is no shortage of the types of seeds one can choose
from.  Choose yours accordingly to what you are trying to achieve.

2 – Find somewhere appropriate with enough light. Whether outdoors or indoors your seeds will need, at the very least, 6 hours of continuous light exposure (natural or artificial).

3 – Germinate your seeds before planting them. You can do this by popping them in a cup of warm water and leave them in a dark place from 1 to 3 days (until you see a sprout).

4 – Plant the germinated seed in unfertilized soil by digging a not
very deep hole and covering it up. Keep the soil moist at all times.

5 – Provide fresh moving air in the surrounding area. You can do this
with a simple fan.

6 - Transfer the sprout to fertilized soil (as the stronger seed won't
be harmed by it anymore).

7 – Make sure the temperature around the plant is constantly around
the 67 degrees
(Fahrenheit) mark.

8 – Watch it grow from 8 to 16 weeks. Your plant should be ready to be harvested when most of the “hairs” on it turn from white to red.

9- Enjoy!

Of course, it goes without saying that marijuana must be legal to grow in your state/country, otherwise none of the above is advisable!

It should be noted that it's illegal to grown marijuana in many places around the world.  For that reason, the following information is for educational purposes only, and should not be used unless it's legal for you to do so wherever you are.

Here are the basic principles of growing your own weed.

  1. First and foremost you'll need to obtain some seeds.  There are a variety of websites offering these products, but I won't list them here.  A simple Google search will provide you with plenty of options.
  2. You'll need to decide where you'll grow your marijuana.  If indoors, you'll need somewhere like a closet or spare bathroom.
  3. The next step is to choose your light.  This is really important, and there are loads of options, including LED grow lights, fluorescent bulbs, and sodium bulbs.
  4. Now you'll need to decide on what soul you'll use.  Organic compost is usually the best choice here.
  5. It's likely that you'll need some soil nutrients unless you're using a high grade compost.  One of the most common choices is Dyna-Gro.
  6. You should now invest in a product such as Rapid Rooter that allows you to germinate your seeds prior to planting them in your high grade soil.  What you need to do is place your seeds into the Rapid Rooters and keep them moist for a fee days until they being to sprout.
  7. You'll want to grow your plants in a warm environment.  The usual recommendations are 70-85F (20-30C).  Your light should remain on the plants for 24 hours per day if possible.
  8. When your cannabis plants start to grow buds, it's time to check for any male plants (the ones with pollen sacs and not white hairs).  Discard the male plants as they do not grow buds.
  9. Now you need to reduce the amount of light your plants get per day to 12 hours on, 12 ours off. 
  10. Your plants will continue to grow until they're ready to harvest.

So there you have it - a very basic guide to growing your own weed.  Please do remember that it's illegal to do this is many areas of the world, and there are severe consequences for those who break the law in this regard.

Thanks for the guide! I guess the first and the most important factors is the quality of the seeds. Honestly I never even tried to grow weed, but I have huge experience in growing other plants, and the quality of seeds and other planting material is the base of success. The plants must grow in appropriate conditions which are defined by: Alimentation, humidity and lighting. Happily growing weed at home is not a problem anymore with the appearance of LED grow lights on the market. This type of lighting is the most developed and can completely substitute sunshine unlike lamps of previous generations. Here is a very detailed review on the latest LED grow lights , I would recommend to bookmark this article if you're in search of quality lighting device.
