If you want to set up with nothing more than a few plant pots and a bag of soil, you can most certainly do that. What’s more, you might also meet with some semi-acceptable results with this grass-roots approach to cannabis cultivation. However, if you are looking at cultivating the kind of cannabis that rivals the quality of that distributed by the professionals, it’s going to cost you a lot of money to get started. Likewise, if you find yourself blessed with the kind of licence that allows you to cultivate cannabis for distribution purposes, you are not going to get away with working with the bare essentials alone.

Generally speaking, it is estimated that to set things up on a professional level, you could be looking at anything from $3,000 to $10,000+ as an initial investment. Once again, there’s nothing to say you can’t technically start things up with a couple of plants for less than $200, but you have to be realistic in terms of your expectations and goals.
