Assuming you are talking about outdoors:

Good genetics (seeds), full sun, adequate water.

Indoor growing is a far more complex matter and not as easy as growing a "weed"

The real trick to getting the highest quality is not in the growing, but in curing the harvested product.

Right. Best to check with the state for requirements and permits. Different states may have different regulations. In Oregon, no permit is required, but a home grower is legally limited in the number of plants being grown at one time for personal use. Permits are required for large scale growers.

When I was in my 20's I lived in the Sierra mountains in California and we would fine random plants all of the time from someones illegal garden. When I lived in Elgin I lived in an apartment and one of the neighbors had a small flower garden. I put some marijuana seeds in her garden and watched them grow until the plants got too big and I had to tell her what they were.

Marijuana grows anywhere but getting the TCH right is another story.

Or the CBD if you are after pain relief, lessened anxiety, help sleeping, etc.

Is there anyone in here who tried to grow it in the 70's?

I had college friends that did. It starts out OK. Then got leggy and dropped leaves.

Have a friend now who is a legal grower. It's a lot of work, 24/7 staff (cause of the demand) and takes a ton of nutrients, etc. But boy is a plant grown well beautiful. The top can be multi color and very delicate looking.

No I hardly smoked pot in college as it only made me sleepy and hungry. Been 40 years.

In the early 70's, we occasionally smoked with another couple. Not often, maybe once a month or so. We had some seeds left over, and I put them in with my tomatoes and other vegetables in my garden. Man, did those suckers take off ! They went from zero to about 5 feet high in a very short period of time.

I got nervous, they were right out there in the open, so one night I tore them all out and put them into garbage bags for the next trash pickup. I think that was the last time we smoked too.

My late husband grew some in our backyard in Chicago in the 80's. Yes, in Chicago. Pretty good stuff! He saved only the best seeds. Water em, give them sunlight (artificial or real), pluck the males and you'll be in business. I laugh at the laws that only allow individuals to grow 2 plants for personal use. You need to start with far more than that or have guaranteed female seeds.

No judgement here, to each their own I say.

Look at grasscity forum. There are numerous post and recipes on cannabis there. For the record, I was looking up pain remedies for someone I care about who hates big pharmaceutical industry, but was suffering.

The home grow section is very active.
