Yes, you read the title correctly, there is a kit called “my first grow kit” out there for growing your first hemp plant.
My First Grow Kit
This is a great kit for those interested in the plant, looking just to contribute to growing it or using it in everyday life as hemp can be very versatile. This kit though has a different audience than you might think. The kit is aimed to be used by kindergarteners who want to grow their very first hemp plant (or for stoner mommies and daddies who want to have some fun with their kids ;)).
Now I am sure many are thinking we are now letting our children grow cannabis in school, but that is not the case at all. In fact, on my first grow’s website they have a statement to reassure individuals that the hemp plant is indeed part of the cannabis family but it does not contain the same psychoactive effects that cannabis does. This is the UK’s way of teaching children to garden and grow plants at a young age just like we use to do in the kindergarten in the US, except we grew beans.

How did it all start?
The idea came to the founder Greg Lonsdale when he was watching his 4-year old nephew play with his grow your own tomato and pepper kits. He was joking with his sister about how he should make a grow your own hemp kit and shortly after, he was selling them.
He has reported that more than 10,000 kits have been shipped all over the world including places like Brazil, Sydney, and the US. Greg has considered starting a My First Poppy Grow kit, per his grandmother’s suggestion as she grows the common red poppy, Papaver rhoeas which contain trace amounts of opium just like hemp contains trace amounts of THC.
Let us know in the comments what you think about the kit.
