10 Great Youtube Videos On Growing Weed

Many of you have written in to tell us how much you love growing videos and that you want us to make more videos. We hear you loud and clear!

But in the meantime, we’ve researched 10 great videos about growing marijuana and they’re available for instant access on YouTube.

We specifically chose these videos because they answer some of the most common questions we receive at, and we found the content to be exceptional!

If there’s cannabis growing video we need to see, make sure to send us a link!

1.) How to Grow Marijuana Indoors – Beginning to End

“Growing Weed Start to Finish Beginners Guide” by From Seed to Stoned

This video is high-quality stuff. It goes through a lot of useful information quickly, the narration is great, and the production value is fantastic. You won’t watch this video and suddenly be a master grower, but you’ll get the basics (and more) in only 14 minutes!

Bonus “Beginning to End” Video (old school)

“I Grow Chronic” by Mr. Green

We found this video series many years ago, but the series is probably old enough to drive a car by now! And the guy who does the videos is…quirky to say the least. He’s painted green from head to toe, the video resolution is at least 1/3 of what’s normal these days, and he talks in a near-whisper for the videos.

But still, when I rewatch these videos in 2019 I’m surprised at how well the series holds up. The information is useful and to the point, the tone is fun but knowledgeable, and it’s a bit goofy, so you aren’t likely to feel even a little intimidated. Plus, it’s refreshing to see someone teach in a way that isn’t specifically aimed at Youtube.

Note: This tutorial doesn’t use grow tents; it shows you how to construct a grow room from scratch.

Here are links to all 9 parts in the series: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

2.) How To Make Dry Ice Hash

“How to Make Dry Ice Hash” by

I’m sure you’ve realized this video isn’t on Youtube. Youtube banned this video (which hurt the videos feelings), so we moved it to Vimeo where it’s safely playing without fear of deletion.

If you want a rewarding way to use your trim that only takes minutes to do, making dry-ice hash is the way to go! Also, someone tell Youtube to stop deleting weed-related videos!

3.) Learn about how humidity affects cannabis growth

“Humidity” by MrGrowingMarijuana

When it comes to humidity, you might be surprised at how much of an effect it can have on growing cannabis plants! If the humidity is too high, your plants tend to grow slower and are more susceptible to mold. But if the humidity is too low, your plants can’t make energy as well as they normally could. They also tend to run into weird problems like unexplainable nutrient deficiencies. Despite the topic, this video is really interesting and shows you simple things you can do that will make a difference!

4.) How to Germinate Seeds

“How To Germinate Seeds Fast | 3 Simple Steps” by Greengenes Garden

This video is a little on the longer side considering the topic of its content. But it explains everything well, and if you watch till the end, you’ll definitely walk away being able to germinate cannabis seeds. Plus, these folks peppered this video with some jaw-dropping pics of sprouting seeds. The quality and seedling pics alone make this video worth the watch.

Bonus Germination Video (less than 3 minutes!)

“Germinating seeds in paper towels” by Rodrigo0DC

This method works great for marijuana. Remember, marijuana seeds should NOT get light during the germination process. If you don’t want to use plastic sandwich bags, you can use the exact same method, but place the paper towels between 2 plates.

5.) How to Control the pH of Your Water When Growing Marijuana

“How to check and adjust the pH of your water” by Nebula Haze

Do you seem to keep getting nutrient problems and have no idea why?

It might be your pH! This video explains how to check and adjust the pH of your water before watering your marijuana garden.

6.) Grow Short and Bushy Plants: How to FIM and Top Marijuana Plants

“How to F.I.M and Top Your Marijuana Plant” by Grow420Guide

This video describes and shows two methods growers use to get additional colas (so you have a wide bushy plant instead of a tall plant with a single cola).

The two techniques are known as topping and FIMing. At GWE, we’ve covered both methods extensively and they both work exceptionally well to get your plants to grow multiple colas.

This grower likes to top then FIM his plants. We believe both methods work great, though we generally recommend topping since it tends to be more reliable when it comes to changing a plants shape. However, FIMing has a built-in safety feature in that it’s hard to make a catastrophic error while attempting to FIM. Topping in the wrong spot can mean a dead plant (though that’s very rare), but a bad FIM doesn’t really do anything.

You can FIM multiples times, and it doesn’t slow down the plant’s growth as much as topping does.

7.) Jorge Cervantes Takes You On 10 Minute Video Tour of Some of The Coolest Outdoor Marijuana Growing Spots

“Medical Marijuana Outdoor Gardens Tour – 10lb.+ MEGA Plants!!” by the legendary Jorge Cervantes

This beautiful 10-minute tour of incredible fields of outdoor marijuana plants around the world with commentary by world-renowned grower Jorge Cervantes will take your breath away.

I especially loved this comment:

“Find it funny how a beautifully filmed and put together a video showcasing FLOWERS is age-restricted based on community guidelines.”

8.) How to Make Canna-Butter – Medical Marijuana Butter Recipe


Medical Marijuana Butter Recipe by MonaLisaLuvsMaryJane

Link to both Parts: Part 1, Part 2

We already have a popular page on how to make cannabutter, but if you want to see how to do it in video format, this is a great tutorial.

9.) How to Tell If Your Cannabis is Ready For Harvest

How to tell if your cannabis is mature by GrowerMD

Being able to harvest your cannabis plants at the right time will result in high potency and yields. This video will give you tips on how to beat impatience and wait for the right time to “pull down” your plants.

10.) Building a Hydroponics/Aeroponic Setup

Building an Inexpensive Hydroponics/Aeroponics System by Family Plot

Learn how you can turn a bunch of cheap parts into a working hydroponic system in a spare afternoon. If you’re a DIY (Do It Yourself) person for fun or frugality and you’re interested in DWC, this video was made for you!
