Best home grow kits, Emjay.

Whether you’ve got a green thumb or you’re just looking to save a little green, growing cannabis at home can be a fun and practical solution. But, it can also be costly and time-consuming.

Having recently built my own grow system piece by piece, let me tell you, researching and purchasing each individual item from seeds and soil to lights and exhaust systems was a pricey and overwhelming task. When I started building my system, pre-packaged at-home grow kits hadn’t hit the market yet, but if they had I honestly would have gone that route. Whether you want to grow indoors or outdoors, one plant or multiple, there’s an at-home grow kit for everyone, and we are totally here for it. Check out some of our favorites below!
