Why do you grow? For the next 90 days we’re featuring real life growers, some in cannabis some in urban farming. Our goal with Eddy is to build the best network of growers and data anywhere in this universe so know-how is accessible to all!
We want to help you and all growers and aspiring growers to grow like a pro in tune with our dear Mother Earth. Today we interview GrowGuru Nikki who wants to stay anon, has been cultivating cannabis for 6 years and does it for passion, not profit. Some of her plants get turned into healing salves or into tasty, organic jelly. Want to be a GrowGuru too? Sign up here.

How has cannabis affected your life?
It has made my life better as well as more stressful.
I’m usually very quiet about any 215 growing and haven’t been so open, to a stranger, before. Or in an open environment (the inter-webs!). But I grow for medicinal purposes, specifically pain, as well.
I’ve crafted an organic aches and pains salve that I’ve sold in six different states by word of mouth. From family, to friends, to friends of friends, with people to cancer and friends who have broken their neck-twice- who swear by my product.
I myself even just recently had a serious foot surgery and rely on the meds I’ve grown and created to help with my treatment. (I could include a picture of my foot, but that would probably freak way to many people out -products work, though!)
Anyways, I hope this inspires other STRONG WOMEN to come forward and not let the stereotype that it’s a ”men dominated” industry.
