Many people choose to grow medical marijuana in a room in their home. This helps to take the guesswork out of outdoor growing, which can be very debilitating to your crop. However, it is best to have a room that is specifically used for growing your medication. Preferably this should be out of sight of prying eyes. Although your physician may agree that you can have cannabis to help your condition, there may be friends or family that are not quite so forward thinking. Therefore, you may need to have some level of secrecy.
Some people choose to use a basement in their home, but if your condition is particularly debilitating, this may not be a suitable route for you. The same goes for upper rooms in the home, although it is not a good idea to use an attic unless you can regulate the light and heat properly yourself.
There are some very effective self contained starter kits on the market that include everything you need to start growing your own medical marijuana. This takes all the guesswork out of the process and will ensure you have excellent plants ready for drying and your personal use. Full instructions are always included and some may even include seeds to get you started.
