Hey Growmies! 🙂
My name is Luis Soto and I’m 22 years old. I grow my medicine organically in “No-Till” living soil with my body and the environment in mind. I’ve been growing cannabis since I was discharged from the Marine Corps for medical reasons when I was 19. I’ve been in love with this plant ever since then.
Originally, I began growing to save myself some money since I became a frequent medical user after the military. I was suffering from both mental and physical conditions, with no help from the VA, and no medical insurance for a good while too. The pills I was prescribed felt like they were hurting me more than they were helping me, and I just couldn’t afford them anymore too.
It’s crazy to see how far my green journey has come. Ironically, I used to be against cannabis and the use of it before the military. Now my life revolves around this plant and growing it brings me a special type of joy. I used to be a war-mongering grunt before my relationship with cannabis. Now I’m a life-loving hippie who just wants to be the change I’m seeking in the world.
