    I have a friend who is eligible for Medical Marijuana. He knows someone who wants to grow Marijuana and distribute it to him and other patients, I guess they are called "caregivers?" For the record they have gone to a clas to learn how to do this process. I have several questions that I need answered before Saturday. Can someone direct me to a website that may be able to answer my questions or maybe someone out there can answer....
    1. Is it typical for a grower/caregiver to Charge for the marijuana or not?

    2. Do growers pay caregivers?

    3. Who owns the plants the caregiver or the patient?

    4.Is caregiver status ever sold?

    5. When harvested how much is the average per plant?

    6. How many cycles per yr?

    7. Whats the Profit on each plant?

    8. Can a patient split Caregivers? i.e. Have 2 plants with one and 4 with another.

    9.Can you revoke or reassign your caregiver?

    10. Whats the relationship between grower and dispensories?

    11. Shwag...what it all about?

    12. What are the typical dispensory prices?

    Re: Need Info

    I don't have the answers to all of your questions, but I can give you a start...

    1. Is it typical for a grower/caregiver to Charge for the marijuana or not?

    It depends how you want to look at it, but the way it is is business first. Marijuana/Hemp is on the verge of being fully legal, its already an industry but it will blow up if that happens, and top notch growers are going to be sought after, therefore expensive, assuming you want the best.

    2. Do growers pay caregivers?

    I can't think of a scenario would pay grower would pay a caregiver. Usually it would be the grower is the caregiver. Unless the caregiver has some kind of business need filled so it would be a symbiotic, if not profitable, relationship.

    3. Who owns the plants the caregiver or the patient?

    It would be tough to prove ownership of a plant, unless some kind of contract was drawn with dates etc outlining a details such as harvest date. Hopefully a caregiver would never stiff you on your plants, just make sure you deal with a reputable caregiver that will furnish the plants for the agreed upon price.

    4.Is caregiver status ever sold?

    It can't be sold, you would just replace the caregiver or grow/buy your own. It is your right to go where you want for your medical marijuana.

    5. When harvested how much is the average per plant?

    This is hard to say, there are so many variables that you have to take into account to accurately predict that. A huge factor is grow method, if you were to grow using SOG, sea of green, method, a plant may only yield a few ounces, but if you grow outdoors they can turn into damn near trees with yields to match.


    6. How many cycles per yr?

    Refer to above. If you grow indoors you control when plants flower, so you could do 2-4 a year indoor with quality harvests depending on your setup.

    7. Whats the Profit on each plant?

    Depends on the quality of plant, local market conditions, and what the cost of growing it was.

    8. Can a patient split Caregivers? i.e. Have 2 plants with one and 4 with another.

    I haven't heard of anyone doing this, I don't see why it would be a problem. Whether it is allowed is another question, I don't think it is because it would cause tracking issues for the governing bodies.

    9.Can you revoke or reassign your caregiver?

    Yes, it is your right to get your medical marijuana from the source you choose.

    10. Whats the relationship between grower and dispensories?

    It is all a business. Each one of them has, or should have, a business license an pay taxes etc just like any other business.

    11. Shwag...what it all about?

    It is, in my opinion, a lame slang term for low quality marijuana. If it is crap weed, call it crap weed.

    12. What are the typical dispensory prices?

    It depends what you buy, they have everything from drinks to rice crispy treats with marijuana in them. You can get medicated edibles from $5, to butane extracted hash for $85 a gram.

    One thing is sure, Marijuana is here to stay... If you found some of my answers helpful, visit my site, it may help further your marijuana knowledge. www.growmarijuana.org

        I'VE BEEN A PATIENT HERE IN SOCAL FOR A FEW YEARS LET ME TAKE A STAB AT YOUR QUESTIONS:
        . Is it typical for a grower/caregiver to Charge for the marijuana or not?
        Yes, the grower requests a donation in an amount set to recover costs including salaries.

        2. Do growers pay caregivers?
        Generally caregivers or collectives donate an amount determined to cover costs to the grower.

        3. Who owns the plants the caregiver or the patient?
        Until the donation has taken place the ownership resides in the possession

        4.Is caregiver status ever sold?
        I would imagine a collective would have some kind of articles of formation or incorporation that determine how the collective changes hands or is disolved.

        5. When harvested how much is the average per plant?
        Indoor generally an ounce or two maybe more with CO2 and HID lighting but not more than double.

        6. How many cycles per yr?
        Three or four but it depends on your space and lighting availability. Each strain has a pretty set time from sprout or clone to flowering (my current crop was 8-9 wks) and then flowering runs four to eight weeks with the majority around four. You have to separate the plants at the time they go into flower as they have a different light requirement (12 hrs) than vegetating plants (18 or 24 hrs)

        7. Whats the Profit on each plant?
        There is no profit. You recoup costs incurred.

        8. Can a patient split Caregivers? i.e. Have 2 plants with one and 4 with another.
        The patient can sign up with a dozen caregivers and they all can grow 12/6 or whatever your law allows for that patient. The patient is limited to a certain amount in his possession at one time.

        9.Can you revoke or reassign your caregiver?
        If you want to be a dick.

        10. Whats the relationship between grower and dispensories?
        They form a collective or cooperative for the purpose of providing marijuana to patients.

        11. Shwag...what it all about?
        The shake from trimming the buds, generally you screen it to make kief or hash.


        12. What are the typical dispensory prices?
        I'm getting $50 eighths of platinum sativas, kushes, and indicas in the OC.

        Hope that helps

          Growers Documentary

          Hey everybody, thanks for the opportunity to spread the word on what's really happening with outdoor growers in Northern California. I've been documenting marijuana farmers since 2005 and have an award winning movie that's available on HULU.com for FREE!

          We basically followed several different farms over the course of an entire outdoor grow season. You can see the trials and tribulations from clone to turkey bag, including many other problems many face with outdoor crops. See what it's like and learn something along the way. Good luck to everybody with their important Cannabis grows this year!

          One Love,

              Marijuana - The Medicine

              Marijuana is the prohibited drug in our society and most commonly used in many developed countries. Medical studies have shown that the active ingredient in marijuana delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can bring health benefits to some patients. The impression that these benefits were significant, voters in California, Arizona and other 13 states approved initiative allowing the use of medical marijuana for patients in certain conditions.
