Old Hippie’s Guide To Growing – How To Grow Your Own Cannabis Medicine

In the July 2011 issue of The 420 Times, I finally reveal the secrets of growing your own medical marijuana legally in California, based largely on research I’ve done for my buddy The Ninja Grower.

It’s the first of a four-month series where I take you as a complete newbie through all the equipment you need (on a seriously low budget) and hold your hand every month until harvest and curing…and I explain all that too!

So go read the first article right now!


Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.
