The Best Books for Growers
When a grower starts off with their first crop, they usually lack the knowledge needed to get the most out of their plants. This is why people tend to seek out advice from more experienced growers, look information up online, or turn to books about growing marijuana. Here at Growbarato.net we insist on teaching our customers all of this indispensable knowledge; if you know how to do something correctly, then you’ll avoid making silly mistakes that might end up ruining your harvest. We continuously make an effort to share our experiences with our customers, especially those that don’t have much experience, through our YouTube channel and our Blog. Today, we’ve thought up a list of some books that we consider to be the best books out there for growers, with which you’ll be able to read the authors secrets first-hand, allowing you to get your crop game up to our level.

It also includes a pro-legalization plea that is without a doubt worth reading; the author talks in detail about all of the different applications that marijuana plants have, capable of changing our and our kids’ quality of life, making for a much better planet. All of this comes straight from the mouth of Juan Reina, an experienced grower that favors natural and organic crops; this book focuses specifically on these kinds of crops, giving classic but extremely effective advice. The introduction is extremely well written by Ben Dronkers, the founder of the seed bank Sensi Seeds and of the cannabis museums in both Barcelona and Amsterdam.
This book is designed for those that want to get the absolute most out of marijuana’s medicinal properties; inside this book you’ll find detailed information on how to make your own marijuana extractions and tinctures with which you can treat a myriad of illnesses.

This book is part II of Juan Robledo’s Practical Manual series, and was written thanks to the amazing success that the first book received.
