Homegrown cannabis is legal in 29 states with a medicinal card, and legal in an additional 8 states recreationally. According to a January, 2016 Harris poll, 18% of adults (approximately 45 million people) in the U.S. are interested in growing cannabis at home.
"I understand the process of learning to grow. Our research sessions could involve conflicting info from 15 books by master growers. Online, if you were lucky enough to find good forums with advice, the very next entry was 'that guy's an idiot, don't listen to him,” stated Jill Lamoureux, CEO of Pure O&M, a nationally recognized cannabis business expert in Colorado with extensive experience in cultivation, manufacturing and distribution.
WeGrow was founded in December, 2015 by CEO Mason Levy. He was inspired by the medicinal benefits of cannabis to educate and empower people who want to grow the plant at home. WeGrow is a portfolio company of CanopyBoulder. WeGrow’s vision is much larger than teaching people how to grow a single plant, it wants to do so by helping people connect and learn any number of topics through simple conversations.
