Can I Grow My Own Marijuana Plants in Missouri?

Should You Learn to Grow Cannabis in Missouri

Growing Your Own Cannabis Plants Can Be a Rewarding Way to Get the Natural Relief You Deserve!

When you qualify for medical marijuana in Missouri, you have the ability to take charge of your treatment plan like never before. A Missouri marijuana card allows you to find the natural relief you deserve, and you can legally purchase the cannabis products that are right for you.

Adding a cultivation permit to your marijuana card gives you ultimate say over your treatment, the types of cannabis products you use, and the strains you have access to, when you add a cultivation license onto your Missouri marijuana card.

Claim your independence by legally growing up to six mature plants, six non-flowering plants, and six clones in your basement, bedroom closet, garage, or even your backyard in some cases.

Why Should You Grow Your Own Cannabis if You Can Shop at a Missouri Dispensary?

If you like the way homegrown tomatoes taste, your own homegrown cannabis is going to blow you away. There’s just something about growing your own medicine that makes it feel even more effective. And according to, gardening is just good for you. So why not make it doubly so by connecting with your therapeutic choices in a whole new way?

When you grow your own marijuana, you get to process it the way you want as well. While dispensaries work to get enough supply to meet demand and fight to get more than a few different formats approved, you could be making your own rosin, edibles, tinctures and sugar by mid-summer.

Even better, you get to order the seeds you want for the strains that work for you. You never have to worry about the dispensary running out of your favorite strains or products when all the choices are up to you.
