Ideal for beginners, our expert grower, Jamie Litt, will take you through the most simple and easy 3-part course that will enable you to grow beautiful healthy cannabis plants with a proper consumable harvest at the end of it in just 3 months start to finish. No special equipment required and no prior knowledge. All you need to bring is enthusiasm, a willingness to learn and an open mind.
