The Collaboration between Kyle Kushman and Homegrown
Kyle Kushman is the nom de guerre of Adam Orenstein, a legend in the cannabis community. He is the modern-day polymath of pot: cultivator, breeder, activist, writer, and educator.
With three decades of experience, he has tried all of the growing methods, nutrients, and equipment out there. One particular field of expertise is his veganic cultivation. Not only did he become the driving force behind Vegamatrix, he also developed an amazing array of advanced horticultural techniques specific to cannabis.
In growing the cleanest, purest medicine, no other organic planting method comes close to Kushman’s system. His holistic approach marries healthy ecosystems to thriving plants, the needs of individual cells to the needs of the garden, the microscopic and macroscopic simultaneously.
Kyle’s desire to create contamination-free cultivation saw the launch of Vegamatrix in 2014, a range of nutrients and foliars derived only from non-GMO plants, never from animals. Organic farms that use animal-derived fertilizers run the risk of passing harmful chemicals to the environment and to humans. By eliminating animals as a source, Kyle all but eradicated the danger of pathogens like salmonella and e-coli, as well as toxic chemicals and heavy metals appearing in his nutrients. The quality of his nutrient line is evident the success of his award-winning strains and collaborations. No less than thirteen of the medicinal and therapeutic strains he developed went on to win cannabis cups.
Kyle has taught advanced horticultural and Veganic courses at Oaksterdam University in California and across the United States. He has written for High Times Magazine for over twenty years. He has appeared in numerous radio shows, podcasts, television shows and documentaries, including the amazing Explained on Netflix, directed by Kevin Smith. He is a leading voice in the fight for legalisation and education, especially when it comes to growing cannabis at home. As an advocate of the medical use of cannabis and earth-friendly veganic growing, Kushman continuous to contribute to the movement.
Today, Kyle remains a key figure in the cannabis community. His desire to help people become better home-growers has led directly to the development of the Grow Your Own Beginner’s Guide, a series of videos created specifically for novice growers. Kyle Kushman is a brilliant teacher and, if you are thinking about growing your own, you could not be in better hands.
“People should look to Kyle Kushman for growing advice because he’s been doing it just about longer than anybody else around, and he’s been doing it at a very high level of accomplishment. He’s been thinking it through and he’s taken the lessons cannabis teaches us.” – Steve DeAngelo
