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.
