Even if you have not heard of him, you will have undoubtedly been influenced by Jorge’s work if you grow your own cannabis. He was one of the first people to author a concise, easy to follow, and informative guide to growing cannabis – shaping what many see as standard growing practice today. It was in 1983 that he first released his book Indoor Marijuana Horticulture, and it became an instant bestseller, even being dubbed the “Indoor Grower’s Bible.”

It is through his work that a generation of growers learnt to excel at growing, experiment, and develop their own techniques. This was a time before the internet, before everyone could easily share their knowledge. Yet, you can be sure that the knowledge you find online all has a base in his work, as the old-school growers who learnt from Jorge spread their knowledge to a new generation.
