Allow us to apprise you of 4 plants you can grow in your backyard or garden that will help you win your bread and butter with no hardship involved.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms are not only delicious but very profitable too. The two most famous gourmet mushrooms that are lucrative are shiitake and oyster. These two mushrooms can be found in markets, both dry and fresh. A great advantage is that you can grow these two exotic mushrooms in your home without the need for fertile soil. You can grow them on waste products like sawdust or coffee grounds. Fortunately, it only takes 6-8 weeks for the mushrooms to mature. Hence you can earn quickly off them. Currently, these gourmet mushrooms for $7 a pound. This will equal to $17,000 in a 10×10 space! Imagine making such an income from growing fungi right at home.

Marijuana

Marijuana is probably equivalent in status to the ‘rose.’ Everyone knows about it, and everyone has a love for it. Believe it or not, people are growing marijuana at home. Marijuana can earn you some big money. One reason is that you can sell it or use it for your own recreational or medicinal benefit. There are several strains of marijuana, as well. We suggest you plant a strain at home that is high in demand, such as OG Kush, Pineapple Express, Bruce Banner, White Widow, Orange Sherbet, and more.

Any or Every Herb

Herbs have been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes. Herbs like thyme, cardamom, cumin, coriander, rosemary, basil, and many more are viral. These herbs are used in Indian, Italian, Moroccan, and Latin American cuisines so you can imagine their popularity. Without these herbs, the savory taste of dishes belonging to each cuisine will not be the same. Apart from cooking, herbs are excellent in providing medicinal benefits. For example, lavender is used in aromatherapy since it promotes wellness and calmness. Start by growing oregano, parsley, basil, and mint in your garden or kitchen since they are the easiest to grow.

Garlic

Garlic has voted in the top 10 most sought after vegetables in the world. Now you shouldn’t grow just any garlic in your backyard – you need to grow ‘gourmet garlic.’ Gourmet garlics have bulbs that are uniform in shape and large in size. There are three types of gourmet garlic: rocambole, purple stripe, and porcelain. The flavor of such garlic is savory, which explains why they are in demand in fancy restaurants. This intense flavor also sets them apart from the ordinary garlic. Growing such garlic in your home can help you make $8-$10 per pound!

 

Cannabis Technology Company HERB Raises $4.1 Million In Seed Funding

CALIFORNIA: Cannabis technology company HERB has announced it has raised $4.1 million in seed funding. According to a company press release funding will go towards the launch of its new technology platform, the growth of HERB’s video studios, key new hires, and two new office locations in Los Angeles and New York.

The round was led by Lerer Hippeau Ventures with participation from Slow Ventures, Michael Lazerow, Bullpen Capital, Shiva Rajarama, Liquid 2 Ventures, Tobi LutkeHarley Finkelstein, and Adam Zeplain.

“During our research into the cannabis industry, it became clear to both myself and our team at Liquid 2 Ventures that HERB was the most professionally run business for relevant, informative, cannabis content,” said Joe Montana, hall of fame quarterback and investor in HERB. “With the trend quickly leaning toward national or even global legalization, we think it will be imperative that there is a reliable source of educational content, which will ensure that cannabis consumers are well-informed about the benefits as well as the risks of using the plant.”

HERB is dedicated to bringing high-quality cannabis content to its rapidly growing audience. With this round of funding, HERB will be able to further its presence in the cannabis space, and establish the company as the go-to resource for everything cannabis related. HERB’s mission is to eliminate the stigma surrounding cannabis and open people’s minds to the medicinal potential of the plant. HERB’s platform allows people to find the best strain for their medical conditions, discover new products, and be entertained by compelling video content. In the coming month, HERB will host a launch event to unveil the features of the new technology platform.

“There was a void in the marketplace and HERB filled it,” said Eric Hippeau managing partner of Lerer Hippeau Ventures. “Because the market is so new, brands wanted to establish themselves and reach consumers, and consumers wanted to know more about sellers, products, legislation, and all other content related to the cannabis business. HERB has been that go-to place for consumers, brands, and anyone who’s looking for information about the industry.”

According to Tubular Labs, as of June 2017, HERB’s engagement rivals that of top mainstream publications, reaching 5.3 million unique viewers per month. Additionally, since April 2017, HERB’s reach has grown at a rapid pace with more than 200 million video views per month (30% growth month-over-month), 8.7 million Facebook likes, and 600,000 Instagram followers.

Earlier this month, HERB also announced the launch of its new weekly video series, Smoke Sessions, which showcases a mix of vibrant personalities, unique personal stories, and educational cannabis content. Upon launch, the series went viral in a matter of 48 hours, receiving over six million views.

“This is a monumental moment for HERB and a testament to the shift of public view on the cannabis industry,” said Matt Gray, CEO and founder of HERB. “As we usher in a new and diverse demographic of cannabis consumers, investors are seeing the value in the cannabis industry and importance of having a reliable technology platform to educate and inform consumers.”
