The popularity of growing cannabis at home is going to rise significantly in the coming year. We expect to see the home grow market more than double in 2018, in the wake of new recreational legalization measures in states like Vermont and Massachusetts, and a shifting focus to craft quality cannabis. If we model the home grow market after home brewing, which represents about 12 percent of beer production, we can expect homegrown cannabis to represent nearly $3 billion of the market by 2021.
A common question for new medical cannabis patients and recreational consumers is whether or not home cultivation is permitted where they live. State cannabis laws vary, with some states permitting home grows while others do not. Luckily, Leafly put together a helpful guide that outlines the home cultivation status for US states that have some pro-marijuana legislature in place.
