Interviewing Jorge Cervantes: Father Of The Cannabis Grow Guide

Cannabis expos are a great way to meet some of the famous names of the cannabis world. We bumped into Jorge Cervantes, who graciously took the time to tell us what he has been up to.

When it comes to growing top-shelf cannabis, there are few more knowledgeable than Jorge Cervantes, a legend of the cannabis community. We had the fortunate pleasure of sitting down with him at this year’s Spannabis expo in Barcelona, and boy did he have a story to tell. You can see our interview with him in the video below!

WHO IS JORGE CERVANTES?

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.

Check out our interview with Jorge to get to know this legend a little better, and see what he has in store for us in the future:
