Rockingham County man looks to educate community on what they can and can’t do with cannabis

2 min read

ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Virginia (WHSV) – With marijuana legalized in Virginia last July, a Bridgewater man started a company to teach people how to grow their own cannabis.

Joe Barbeau realized that some people might be given incorrect information about growing their own cannabis, or just not know how to start, so he started a cannabis consultancy and said he had seen great interest.

“I would say almost a third to half of our sales on any given day are about implements or nutrients or just advice, advice, whatever it is, it’s about cannabis. The Valley loves cannabis, ”said Barbeau.

Barbeau founded Joe’s Grows, located in Bridgewater Vape on South Main Street in Bridgewater, in hopes of helping people know what they can and can’t do with cannabis.

“My whole goal here is to help people grow the best quality cannabis that they can use for their own personal needs, whether for medicinal or recreational purposes,” said Barbeau.

Joe wanted to create a convenient place for people to come by and ask questions, buy what they need to grow cannabis, and where he can help guide people through the process.

“I know what I’m doing and I want to show you how to do it too,” said Barbeau.

Virginia law states that adults 21 and older can legally own up to one ounce of marijuana.

In Virginia, you can have four plants per household, not per person, and you must tag the plants with some form of identification such as a driver ID number.

Barbeau said there are benefits to growing your own cannabis, such as knowing exactly what’s in it.
