Hi there! I’m Chase, aka TempleGrower. I am a licensed medical cannabis grower under Canada’s ACMPR, having been producing my own medicine for the better part of a decade now. I, like many others, began growing my own cannabis due to the lack of availability/consistency as well as costs of having to rely on both the legacy and legal markets. This has led me down the never-ending rabbit hole of cannabis horticulture, chasing after the likes of Jorge Cervantes, Ed Rosenthal, Rob Clarke and all the rest of the trailblazers and pioneers. I am a huge proponent of growing your own and believe that the choice to produce your own medicine is a fundamental human right and and legalization framework that doesn’t include a homegrow provision is not real legalization.
I have a B.Sc in Geology (University of Saskatchewan, 2014), and am currently working with a local company here in Saskatoon performing cannabinoid extraction/distillation. Nearly every aspect of my life is cannabis-related, whether it’s breeding, growing, using both medicinally and recreationally, extracting, researching, creating/improving soil blends or just simply talking about it constantly, I do it all!
I can usually be found hanging around digitally on Twitter, Youtube, or Instagram slingin’ knowledge and sharing pictures, as well as physically in my backyard hanging out with the birds and the bees. And the plants of course!
If you’re looking to get started growing your own cannabis, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s get started! (Local Saskatoon and area only at the moment!)
