Growing Cannabis can be a daunting task if you have never grown this plant (or other plants) before. It can be hard to know where to start:
- Where do I get seeds?
- What strains/cultivars will do well in my area?
- Watering, transplanting, what nutrients and fertilizers to use?
- What about pruning, training and caring for these plants throughout the growing season?
- And how do I know when to harvest my plants and what is the best way to trim, dry and cure them to retain their smell and potency?
There is a lot of information out there, but it can be hard to ‘read’ through it all and pick out the key pieces that will be of help and service to you.

You Can Learn to Grow Plants Like These Too
Let’s face it, Cannabis is expensive no matter where you get it from and you can never be truly sure of how it was grown or what could have been sprayed on it.
This is one of the many reasons we have designed this course. To not only save you money, but to give you the chance to learn to grow your own cannabis organically and to have confidence that it was grown in the best way possible.
We want to support medical patients, recreational users and home growers to produce the best flowers possible that they can be proud of and gives them a supply of clean medicine for the entire year.
As the stigma and stereotypes break down on this special plant, we also want to break down the barriers that keep you from having the supply that you need.
We want to empower people to grow their own clean medicine and save a pile of money in the process. Take out the middle man and acquire the skills needed to have successful harvests, year after year.
We have always been firm believers that cannabis can help people to relax and was no different from enjoying a beer or a glass of wine at the end of a long day. Just over 20 years ago, we witnessed directly how this plant was helping people to deal with many complex and serious medical conditions. Through seeing this plant help so many people and hearing their stories, we were convinced that cannabis could be used by many more people that did not have access to it.
Now, after it has been legalized for both medical and personal use, you can learn to grow this plant on your own without being worried about breaking any laws or risking criminal charges (oh how times have changed……..).
We designed this course to help people just like you learn to grow cannabis at home, hence the name – The Cannabis Home Growers Course. We have many years of experience not only growing cannabis, but also vegetables, herbs, trees, shrubs and more.
We practice regenerative agriculture methods and only use organic inputs to make sure that our food and medicine is pure, clean and healthy. Our experience along with many tried and true methods, can shave years of trial and error off of your growing journey.
As we move into another year of post legalization, where most people (check your state and provincial laws) are allowed to grow a limited amount of cannabis plants legally, we are excited for the opportunity to guide you along this growing journey.
This online Cannabis Home Growers course is the first of its kind and has been created as a way to take you from ‘seed to harvest’ and beyond.
Focusing on each step of the growing process and giving you the guidance and direction needed to successfully grow and harvest your own organic cannabis for both personal and medical use.
The Cannabis Home Growers Course is designed exclusively for people who consider themselves beginner to intermediate growers.
Whether you have never grown any kind of plant before or consider yourself to have a ‘black thumb’. We are confident that we can guide you down a pathway of harvesting your own plants successfully over the growing season. We have over 2 decades of experience and are going to be sharing many of our tried and true methods in an easy to understand and digestible format.
Once you register for the course, you will be given a username and password where you can login to our website and gain access to our course materials including videos, handouts, a forum where you can ask questions and share photos and more. Please note, you will gain access to the entire course after registering. You will have lifetime access to this information and we plan to create new content and add value to this course each year as we continue to produce new videos, handouts and more.

Here is what some of last years Participants had to say:
I consider myself a much better grower after a season of cultivating cannabis with Alexis looking over my shoulder.
“If you want to learn how to grow clean, organic, sun grown cannabis, I highly recommend signing up for a course form Organigrow Canada. Owner/grower Alexis is a wealth of knowledge and conveys all there is to learn in accessible, easy to apply bits of info. Through video, live group meetings and standby support throughout the season, I consider myself a much better grower after a season of cultivating cannabis with Alexis looking over my shoulder.”
Empowering people to be responsible and knowledgeable about cannabis medicine is something these folks do incredibly well
“I don’t have enough words to express the gratitude I have for Alexis and this course. Empowering people to be responsible and knowledgeable about cannabis medicine is something these folks do incredibly well. Honest, forthright, dedicated and committed to sharing not only over 20 years of growing experience, but a deep understanding of the plant in myriad ways makes this one of the best courses for those seeking to learn and take control over their own medicines. Living in an urban environment at the moment has made cultivating difficult, and this year we had a very successful crop, and look forward to growing bigger, heartier plants next year with the knowledge acquired from this course. Happy growing folks, you will love watching your cannabis grow even more after this!”
His passion and knowledge of Cannabis is very evident
“As a new grower I found the “Home growers” course to be very beneficial. The information on the videos is excellent and Alexis delivers it in a way that even the newest grower can understand. His passion and knowledge of Cannabis is very evident. Being able to discuss with Alexis and other course members was a real enjoyable time. Overall I feel confident in my growing now.”
“This was a new experience for us, I make a rub and didn’t want to purchase the cannabis any more so we decided to try growing it. Many people say “don’t pay for a class its easy”, but for us.. we are thankful we did because we learned tons from you, and would do it again. We feel it was worth it!”
The course was exactly what I needed for success! Thank you!
“This course was fantastic! Alexis is a great teacher with vast knowledge about cannabis and plant medicine. As a “newbie” growing my plants for the first time, I found Alexis’s to be responsive to student needs/questions and the pace/focus of the course was exactly what I needed for success! Thank you!”
There is such a good blend of very practical, real-world tips on growing
“Cannabis had always been sort of a uniform recreational substance to me. I had tried it a few times but barely had an awareness that there were even different varieties. Last winter I severely injured my knee and required extensive surgery; the pain was very severe but I wasn’t comfortable with the heavy prescription medications that were being recommended, so I started looking in some new places. I found cannabis to be an incredibly helpful relief not only for the pain but for the tension that had built up as a result of the pain and stress. Right around the same time I found Alexis’ home growers’ course and it has been absolutely fantastic. There is such a good blend of very practical, real-world tips on growing; with helpful background and historical information that really helps you understand where cannabis fits into the plant world. Alexis’ manages to provide helpful instruction to growers of all different experience levels; and the overall volume of knowledge, experience and content that the course provides is really good value for the cost. I would recommend the course to anyone who grows at home or even who is just interested to learn more.”
We are confident that by participating in this program, completing the lessons and taking part in the live calls, that you will have a successful
harvest in the fall. Not only that, but you will have learned the tools and gained the experience required to continue to successfully grow and harvest your own cannabis long into the future.
We will focus on only organic methods of cultivation and teach you to take care of plants that have been grown naturally in the outdoors under the sun.
And best of all, you will have gained the pride and satisfaction that it was you who learned to grow and harvest this special plant in a regenerative (beyond sustainable) way that will provide you and your family with your own medicine.
The money you save on buying cannabis can pay for the course, multiple times over the course of the year. And will continue to save you money long into the future.
The cost of the full hands-on course (with student services), is equivalent to buying 65 grams (A little over 2 ounces) of legal cannabis at $10 per gram. With the knowledge and experience you will gain through our guidance, you should be able to harvest at least 1 pound per plant (16 ounces). No matter how you do the math, this course can and will pay for itself many, many times over!
OrganiGrow Canada also runs a consulting service for individuals and businesses wanting to learn to grow cannabis. Our rates are many times over the cost of this course. Purchasing this course is a great way to gain access to not only the amazing information in the course itself, but to have us available to answer your questions in real time (Hand’-On Course’ option). And guide you through the growing experience. From seed to harvest and beyond.
We have been growing and working with the Cannabis plant for over 2 decades and have made many mistakes along the way. We want to share what we have learned with you so that you do not have to make as many mistakes and can learn from our hard won knowledge and experience.
We have designed this course in part to speed up your learning curve and share with you many of the tips and tricks that we have learned over the years.
In this pilot 2.0 course you will have lifetime access to the material and all the updates, revisions and material that will be added in the coming years.
The price may change next year. Register today to lock in your savings and receive lifetime access to the material (Even the yearly upgrades and additions to the course!)

Frequently Asked Questions:
What if I have never even grown a tomato plant before?
This course is designed for the beginner to intermediate grower. We will meet each person where they are at and guide them along the growing journey. We have designed the course to start with the basics and teach people how to grow this amazing plant right from the start, regardless of previous experience. You will also have lifetime access to the course and can refer back to each lesson again and again over the years.
Isn't it easy to grow cannabis, it is a 'Weed' right?
Yes and No. Sure, growing some plants may be easy and many first time growers can have success growing cannabis. But many people need help and guidance along the way. And most people cannot produce consistent results (bountiful yields of potent medicine) year after year. There are a lot of things that you would not know about cannabis and how to maximize the growth and potential of this plant without putting in years of experience and research. This is where our decades of experience comes into play and can help you gain confidence in your growing abilities in a very short amount of time.
Isn't a lot of this information available in the internet?
Although there is a lot of information on the internet, a lot of it is not good advice and often comes from people with questionable experience. If you are new to cannabis growing it can be hard to know where to start and even harder to know who you can trust. Couple that with the amount of bad information that you will need to ‘weed’ (sorry about the pun) through and it can be overwhelming. In the CHG course, all of the information that you need is in one place and available for you to go through in a step by step fashion. It is easy to understand, clear and concise and each lesson builds on that of the previous one.
What if I am a medical patient and cannot afford the cost of this course?
We are open to arranging a payment plan option if that makes it easier for people who cannot afford the full price of the course up front. With that said, if you still cannot afford the price of the course, we will work with individuals on a case to case basis. All that we ask is that you show us proof that you have a medical prescription and we will do our best to work something out.
Will I be alone taking this course?
If you choose the ‘Basic’ course, you will be on your own to go through the video lessons and let them guide you through the growing journey. We are confident that this option will deliver quality instruction and guidance to those that are ready to work at their own pace and move through the lessons on their own. If you do not want to be on your own and would like some guidance, support and someone to ask question of, then we recommend that you register for the ‘Hands-On’ Course which has student services. This option give the student unlimited email support as well as bi-weekly zoom meetings where there will be live lectures as well as Q & A sessions. It is these live meetings where you can have all of your questions answered as well as grow and learn with a community of like minded growers. This is one of our (and our students) favorite parts about the course. Having a community of people to work through the course with and a chance to see what others are doing, how their plants are growing and collectively learn from all of our experiences.
Can I upgrade from the Basic course to the Hand-on Course?
We recommend that you register for the Hands On course to start with if possible. There may be an option to upgrade to the Hands On Course from the basic course, but we cannot guarantee this. We only have a handful of spaces and once they are gone, there will not be any more spaces available.
What about the community of Growers?
Throughout the growing season, there is a real community that forms between all of the people participating in the Hands-on course. We are meeting every two weeks online where we can see each others faces and share our experiences not only through our stories, but also through photos and videos. Everyone will have a chance each meeting to update the group on what they are experiencing and learning as well as ask questions to the group. The community of home growers and the collective experiences of the group is an invaluable asset to all participants.
For students who join the ‘Basic Course’, you will have access to the Home Growers Course ‘Student Forum’ located on the website where you can share your gardening experiences and ask questions. But please note that the instructor only moderates this forum periodically and if you are looking for quick responses to your immediate questions, your best option is to join the ‘Hand’s-On’ Course.
Where do I get seeds?
There is a lesson in the course on where to get seeds as well as what to look for when selecting the right cultivar for you as well as your bio-region.
What if I live in a town or city environment?
No problem. We have had people go through the program who lived in an urban environment and their plants did great. The course is designed to teach people how to grow cannabis outdoors and as long as you have access to some sunlight, you will be able to take what you have learned and apply it to your specific situation. Although most people choose to plant their plants directly into the ground, some people have chosen to plant theirs in pots and have them on a small porch or balcony. We would be happy to chat with you about your specific environment and help you to form a plan that will work the best for you.
What if I do not live in Ontario or Canada for that matter?
No problem. We have had people take the course from the west coast (of Canada and the US) and a few points in between. It does not matter where you live, the material will be applicable to you and you will be able to take it and apply it to your specific bio-region. From coast to coast to coast and across the ocean, we have you covered.
What about the laws in my area?
We recommend that you research what the laws are in your specific province or state in relation to growing cannabis. Many areas across North America have legalized cannabis for recreational purposes and this often comes with a plant count (the legal number of plants that you are allowed to grow). Many areas also have laws that enable people to grow cannabis for medical purposes and this could be an option for you to look into as well. It is up to you to research and follow all applicable laws in your area before growing any plants.
What is the main difference between the Basic and Hands-On Course?
The main difference is that the basic course gives you access to the course itself (video lessons and pdfs). Whereas the Hand-On course gives you access to the community of growers, a chance to ask questions via email as well as live at our bi weekly online meetings that happen twice a month. For the extra money, we encourage people to sign up for the Hands-On course and gain access to this incredible experience and community.
Why is this program offered as an online program?
We decided to offer it as an online program because this is a way that we can reach more people and also have people join us from all over Canada, the US and beyond. It also enables us to keep the price lower than if we were to run it in person. and we find that running it online is a great way to have people grow their own plants at home and then work through the lessons while also checking in with the community. We also see great value in having all the lessons online in video format for people to refer to on their phones, tablets or personal computers.
Do I have to Grow Plants while taking the course?
No, although that is a huge part of the course, you do not need to. We have had at least one person who was not ready to grow their own plants, but wanted to learn and take part in the course. So this is also an option for people who are not in a place to grow their own plants.
Why is it called a Pilot 2.0?
It is called a Pilot 2.0 course because we are still developing the course and are not ready to release it on a large scale across North America. Last year (2019), was the first time that we ran the course and it was a tremendous success (check out our testimonial video). There are still parts of the course that we are working on and a few video lessons that we have to shoot, edit and upload to the course site. After this year, we plan to finalize the video lessons, make some edits and changes to the course and have it ready to launch in a bigger way. As a pilot, we are asking for feedback from our students so that we can make the course even better. This is an exciting time to take part in the development of this course. And please know that you will have lifetime access to the material, including updates, bonus and extra content that will get added each year (future students may not have this added perk). And there is also a chance that we may need to raise the price in the future as well.
Why is this program so valuable?
It may seem to be expensive, but if you compare the value of the course and the knowledge you will gain with the amount of money that you will save. You will see that there is actually a great amount of value and this course and it will pay for itself numerous times over after one successful growing season. There is an incredible amount of material and video lessons in the course itself and you will have lifetime access to this material, including the many updates and bonus material that will be added each year. Also, If you choose the student services option, you will have direct access to a Grower mentor who will be available to answer your questions throughout the growing season. And there will also be bi-weekly live lectures and Q & A sessions from the start until the end of the program. For a 6 month long training program this is an incredible value. And there is also a bonus “Growers Starter Kit” included for those of you who register for the Hand’s on Course!
