Torrox, Andalucia ( Southern Spain)... The Background
This grow shop is located in Torrox, an andalucian whitewashed village that is around 50 km east of the Malaga Airport. The village is divided into two areas , the one they call Torrox Pueblo and the coastal area named Torrox Costa ...The village has a nice cultural flair dating back to the moorish days ... It has a population of around 16k and almost 2/3 of that population are in the younger generation. In Summer, the village is always jampacked with tourists ... young and old and mostly germans, scandinavians, brits and russians, and many others spend their vacation here.
THE CANNABIS GROW SHOP
Cannabis is still illegal in Spain, but as I have said, the town officials are lax as far as growing is concerned, afterall, Spain is an agricultural land and their biggest export product aside from its tourism industry are fruits and vegetables.
To be honest, I was bit surprised to see the cannabis grow shop in this village! Perhaps, they have seen that it is a big industry that would generate lots of taxes and income for the region. Since a lot of countries are already legalizing Cannabis lately, it is inevitable that Spain would also follow suit.
So, let´s take a tour of what is inside a Cannabis grow shop... On the outside , there are posters shown on the glass window about the kind of seeds being offered by the shop and I saw lots of poster of strains that are so popular and the not so common . Diego, the owner of the shop showed me lots of catalogs , the kind of seeds, the differences of the two plants which are vegetative and the auto-flowering cannabis that is easily grown and harvested in a short period of time say from 70 to 100 days.
There are lots and lots of fertilizers, growth boosters, flower booster as well as many other nutrients and minerals that would help the growing process. And mind you they are not cheap. There are Sensi packs too which are mineral fertilizers with PH perfect substances. Other products such as CBD Oil, CBD creams and lotions and so many by-products are in this shop.
All the tools and materials you will need in growing including kind of soil, from pellets to germinate the seeds, to containers, plastics bags, hardware. literature are all available in this store... It´s like a one-stop shop for all your cannabis growing needs.
There are so many types of soil available like the prepared ones where you only have to transfer your newbie to your pots with this potting soil as well as organic plus soil.
And as far as marijuana vessels are concerned, there are various types available according to your preference such as vaporizers, pipes, bowls , bongs and so many other vessels... There are also various kinds of weed grinders from sophisticated metal to simple plastic ones.
