Hey there!

As usual, I’ve been super busy (and productive) lately. When I’m not writing my book, collaborating with my team of PhDs and grow experts to find ways to bring marijuana to its true genetic potential, working on a documentary about corruption in Bulgaria, running our Holiday Heroes charity, attending masterminds, festivals, events, and doing all the other things that go into running Advanced Nutrients, I’m kicking back: taking bong rips, reading books, hanging out at the Marijuana Mansion with friends and team members and hosting the occasional party. read more

About My OCD, ADD, Dyslexia, and Anxiety—And How I Use These to Kick Ass

I’m a firm believer of turning obstacles into fuel.

Not only have I dealt with crop failure, busts, manhunts, thieves, outlaw bikers trying to extort me, other nutrient companies trying to blackball me, lawsuits, divorce, poverty, and so many hurdles it would make your head spin, I also have a number of disabilities. read more

An Open Letter To Our Community—And a Strange Confession

Damn, I’m in awe right now and have something a bit strange to admit to you (which I’ll get to in a moment).

I just hopped off the G4 I took to the Michigan Cannabis Cup and back with @allisongreen @melissamarie @xxbleedgoldxx @samiiryan @alyshanet, as well as a handful of store owners and their wives, where Advanced Nutrients won 3rd place in Best Product & Best Booth. read more

D’oh! Hundreds of Pounds of Weed Drying and The Landlord Wanted to Show The House

This got hairy…

The early nineties.

I was simultaneously running seven or eight indoor grows and six outdoor grows throughout multiple counties and having a blast.

On this particular Tuesday evening, my two grow partners—let’s call them Jim and Scott—and I were drying hundreds of pounds of bud in the four-thousand square foot basement of a home I’d rented under a fake name in Barrington, Illinois. Jim and Scott lived in the house, but I’d been the one who’d rented it and had the relationship with the landlord. read more
