Growing the marijuana

Place down the box fan and turn it on by pressing E on it.

(The best way to place it, is flat on the ground facing up)

Place the terracotta pot on the fan.

Place the large lamp above the pot and turn it on by pressing E on it.

Pour dirt into the pot until the green bar is full.

Pour water into the pot until the blue bar is full.

Pour nutrients into the pot until the pink bar is full.

Drop your Cannabis seeds onto the pot, this will start the process of growing the plant.

The plant will take 14 minutes 15 seconds to grow if you maintain it properly.

Keep the box fan and large lamp turned on, keep the water and nutrient bars filled up.

When the plant is full grown, press E on it to receive x2 Fresh cannabis.

Drop the fresh cannabis onto a drying rack, after a few seconds press E on the drying rack to receive dry cannabis.

(You can fit 12 fresh cannabis on 1 drying rack)

Drop the dry cannabis onto a trimming machine, after 30 seconds the cannabis will appear.

Press E on the trimming machine to receive x4 marijuana.



Useful notes

As far as I can tell, from experimenting in-game, the seeds determine the quality. If the seeds are high quality, then the final product will be high quality. As long as the red HP bar doesn't fully empty, you will be fine. However if the red HP bar does empty, the plant will die.


The speed at which the plant will grow depends on how well you maintain it. Make sure the blue water bar, and pink nutrients bar stay above half. If they drop below half, the plant will grow slowly, if they empty completely the plant will start to lose HP.


You will make much more money if you use somebody else's gear, as well as your own. Get a friend to give you prop protection, then get them to place down their gear for you to use (give prop protection by holding Q, clicking on buddies and adding the player. Then click on grant prop protection).
