From the moment the personal cultivation of cannabis became legalised, the presence of certain distinctive green plants became a lot more obvious in Cape Town, appearing on balconies and stoeps. Evidently plenty of residents are cultivating their own, but what do you do if you don’t have the expertise or the space to do it yourself?

A Cape Town-based company called The Haze Club, or THC, has a solution for those who can’t grow their own marijuana plant with its personal weed-growing and delivery service.

For many the first question that comes to mind is “How can this be legal?”. Well there are some finely-tuned rules The Haze Club goes by as it works its green-thumbed magic, and the service is indeed legal.

Those looking to use the service must sign up for a THC membership and agree to a number of terms and conditions, one being that The Haze Club does not provide any weed for its customers – rather, the customers provide their own dagga seeds for THC and the company simply grows the plant for them.

Customers have full freedom to decide on the strain and which seeds they want grown, keeping in mind that only feminised seeds will get you the result you’re looking for.

From here, The Haze Club’s meticulous growers care for your budding beauties in a state-of-the-art facility, tending to their every need and using a method that ensures the highest yield per plant. After 12 to 14 weeks depending on the strain, your plants are harvested and delivered to your door.

Some important points to note are that the amount grown by each member is limited for personal use only, so customers can grow no more than two plants at a time. You will also need to do a little work on the seed side. Some good places to get your hands on seeds are CannaBank and Green Smoke Room, but there are also a number of local seed banks to choose from.

A THC membership will set you back R949 per month. This includes the renting of your cultivation space as well as the growing, cutting, curing and delivery services.

So if you’ve been dreaming of growing your own dagga plant but circumstances haven’t been on your side the solution you’ve been waiting for is finally here.
