For a thousand and one very justified reasons, the majority of people cultivating cannabis at home would rather keep their activities as quiet as possible. Even in regions where it is perfectly legal to grow cannabis at home for personal use, it isn’t necessarily a good idea to let the entire world know what you are doing. After all, high quality cannabis is an extremely valuable and treasured asset – exactly the kind of thing criminals would love to get their hands on.
Which in turn means that unless you plan to guard your crops on a 24/7 basis, it is probably in your best interests to think about discretion from day one. And when we say day one, we mean it – as in from the very moment you make the decision to purchase your chosen cannabis seeds.
So for those with every intention of keeping things on the down-low, here’s a quick rundown of just a few tips on how to keep your home cultivation efforts as quiet as realistically possible:
1 – Discreet Seed Buying
First of all, and as already mentioned, it’s a good idea to start out by picking up seeds as discreetly and quietly as you can. Here at Seed Supreme for example, we guarantee the most discreet purchase and delivery system on the market, which ensures that your business stays your own at all times. It’s always a good idea to find out what the vendor you are looking at has to say about things like discretion, before getting started. After all, the last thing you want is for everyone to know what you are planning to get up to, before you have even got things up and running.
2 – Keep it Shut
Chances are that at quite a number of junctures throughout the process, you will find yourself wanting to tell the world about what it is you are doing. Or at least, you’ll probably want to show off to a few people, or perhaps even ask for advice and input. Realistically however, you should be making every effort to ensure that you tell as few people as possible about what it is you are doing. The reason being that while those you tell may indeed be individuals you trust, you really have no idea who they will tell and who those people will summarily blab to. It’s important to remember that word only needs to get to one person with untoward intentions, for things to take a serious turn for the worse.
3 – Odour Awareness
Try to bear in mind the fact that as soon as your home cultivation efforts begin showing any signs of fruition whatsoever, you are probably going to be dealing with an incredibly strong and unmistakable fragrance. It may be a fragrance that you yourself are in love with, but the same most probably cannot be said for others. Not only may those in proximity to your place not appreciate the smell, but there’s really no better way of broadcasting to the world exactly what it is that you are doing. Odour control may take time, effort and money, but if you want to remain discreet, you really have little choice.
4 – Thermal Footprint
Last but not least, it’s worth remembering that when the authorities set out to look for those growing things they shouldn’t be growing, they often look for signs of excessive heat radiating from properties. Suffice to say, if you are using the kinds of grow lights that emit a serious amount of heat while doing their job, it’s probably going to be pretty easy to pick up on this from the outside. By contrast, if you use the very best LED lighting on the market, this is the kind of lighting that emits little to no heat whatsoever and therefore remains largely undetectable.
