Now you might be thinking this is a crazy recommendation. After all, we’ve still got mounds of snow on the ground terrible driving conditions, and plenty more of the white stuff ahead, but the truth is that spring isn’t as far away as it might seem. There are many reasons to plan ahead and get a good start on rounding up all of the things you’ll need to establish a healthy cannabis grow this year, and here, we’re going to highlight five of them.

1. It’s available

As much as you probably weren’t thinking about getting ready to grow in the middle of February, neither is anyone else and for that reason, it’s really easy to find everything you could possibly need in stock anywhere that sells it. No suppliers are sold out right now. In fact, many have already restocked for the next growing season while also having on hand older appliances, tools and cannabis seeds so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from and are far less likely to feel the need to settle for less.

2. It’s more affordable

Much like Christmas decorations after the holidays, or Halloween chocolates immediately following the spooky occasion, cannabis-growing gear like lights or pots and even seeds are likely to be much cheaper at this time of the year because sales are down and companies are still trying to turn a profit despite the decrease in sales. With revenue down most brands will start running incredible sales to get products to move, and now is the time to take advantage of them.

3. It’s more expensive than you might think

Setting up a grow room or garden is no small feat if you want to create an environment most conducive to cultivating cannabis, and though many manage to scrape by on the bare essentials, getting everything you’ll need can get pretty expensive, especially if you need lights, soil, nutrients, and pots as well as cannabis seeds. However, if you get going now on gathering all of the things you want to have on hand, then it won’t seem like such a massive financial burden.


4. Set-up takes time

Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, setting up a cannabis growing area can take many hours of labor and then there’s the searching for the right tools and pieces like screws or drywall protectors. Even if the process doesn’t seem too complicated, it can absolutely be time-consuming, and it’s not something you want to rush through especially in terms of safety. Getting the odd piece here and there allows you to set up slowly, and it leaves plenty of time to get other things or replacements if the pieces don’t fit the space appropriately, or don’t work efficiently, so why not get a head start on the process now?

5. Shipping is rarely instant

The best deals on grow equipment are often found through online suppliers who will ship your order to you, and this is not always something that happens quickly. Unlike Amazon, these providers don’t often have dozens of storage facilities across the country, and they may have fewer workers to do necessary things like packing. It could take weeks for all of your orders to arrive, so if you don’t want to begin late, then now is the best time to get going.

Of course, you’re free to shop whenever you like, and if it isn’t financially possible right now it’s important not to panic. No matter what time of the year you get started, this will be an incredible journey you’ll never forget!
