My brother has always been the one with the green thumb in the family.
Our parents let us all help in the garden growing up, but my brother is the one who enjoyed it the most. By the time we were both in middle school, he was checking out books from the school library about ecology, botany, and plant cultivation. He had plants in our parents’ garden that were difficult to grow and maintain, but he did it as a hobby and was becoming quite good at the whole process. Eventually my brother announced he wanted to go into plant cultivation as a career, he just wasn’t exactly sure in what capacity he would do this. When we reached the end of high school, we both tried cannabis for the first time. While we both enjoyed the plant and its effects, my brother was blown away by the experience. Soon he was dead set on becoming a professional cannabis grower as the legal market out west was starting to really expand at that time. He went to college and got his education before moving out there to work for a large cannabis corporation. Now he’s the master grower and is in charge of hundreds of different plants everyday. One of his favorite strains is OG Kush because it was used to make so many legendary strains like Girl Scout Cookies, Bubba Kush, and Headband. My brother is partial to SFV OG himself, especially when he can grow his personal plants at home under the utmost ideal conditions. It’s amazing to hear about his exploits as a marijuana grower.
