Advice & Tips: I grow my own cannabis and i'm working with different strains. As of now I can keep up with my plants with the help of wife and friends. Tried different sources for processing into oil and got varied results. Some upset my stomach -adding some coconut oil seem to help this. Checked out Charlotte's Web coming out of Colorado. I wanted to get a cutting but they will not give out the plant. You can only order their oil from them (50$ a day). My cost is hard to determine. it's very expensive to grow and it's hard to tell exactly how much it costs me by the time it gets to the finished product.
Cost: $200+ monthly
