7 YouTube Channels Every Stoner Needs To Watch

Keep reading for a list of 7 YouTube channels that all have one thing in common—a love for cannabis! Covering all aspects of the illustrious herb, there are videos to suit all tastes. Forget subscriber count, this is about highlighting passionate content creators.

YOUTUBE HAS BECOME A HUB FOR CANNABIS EDUCATION AND ENTERTAINMENT

Despite the regular advertiser intervention that takes place on YouTube, a thriving cannabis community has persisted. You could be a seasoned stoner who wants to learn more about growing, a novice who wants to see a blend of cannabis and culture, or you could just be fascinated by the potential of marijuana. Regardless, YouTube has a channel to suit all tastes, and has become an excellent source of both education and entertainment.

7 YOUTUBE CHANNELS DEDICATED TO MARIJUANA

To help get you started, we have put together 7 YouTube channels committed to weed. Each one offers something unique, so be sure to check out the entire list. You’ll also find that subscriber count varies massively, but don’t let this put you off. We are still a long way from having cannabis-focussed channels on the trending page. Until then, you have to search a little harder for authentic, weed-loving content.

WEEDMAPS

Weedmaps has quite literally put cannabis on the map. Their website allows you to put in your postcode in exchange for a comprehensive list of cannabis-related retail locations. To make life even easier, the app is available on both android and iOS. When Weedmaps isn’t busy connecting all things cannabis, they are uploading a diverse mix of content to their YouTube channel.

Weedmaps has strain showcases, product reviews, and a range of tutorials and how-tos. A highlight has to be their strain showcases, which take an in-depth look at individual cannabis cultivars. The videos are presented clearly and often feature a prominent figure from the seedbank or the actual breeder, so you get a first-hand breakdown of how the strain was developed.

ROYAL QUEEN SEEDS

The Royal Queen Seeds YouTube channel is a rich source of information. It features guidance on every step of the cannabis cultivation process. There’s basic knowledge for beginner growers, including overviews of the cultivation timeline and how to feed cannabis plants, as well as more advanced information for experienced growers that covers the nuances of growing great weed.

Learn how to maximise the germination rate of your seeds and keep them healthy during the seedling stage. Discover everything you need to know about the vegetative and flowering phases and how to detect any deficiencies. The archive teaches growers how to control stretching, how to remedy deficiencies, and how to avoid yellowing leaves. You’ll learn exactly what nutrients plants need at different times, and how to apply them.

The Royal Queen Seeds YouTube channel also offers in-depth strain reviews of some of the most well-known cultivars. These videos will help you decide which strain to grow next. The channel also reviews several CBD products and pieces of RQS merch.

CUSTOMGROW420

Arguably the most popular YouTuber on our list, chances are you may have already seen one of CustomGrow420’s videos. If you like watching a larger than life personality taking fat rips for your viewing pleasure, then CustomGrow420 is the channel for you. Granted, the intro can get a little tiresome, especially as he approaches 1,000 videos. However, get past that, and there is a lot of good insight into the American medical cannabis scene.

If you have yet to try dabs, then be sure to check out the “Dabs Reviews. ” playlist. The videos cover the low and high-temperature attributes of dabs, while also giving you a close-up perspective on the concentrate being reviewed.

THAT HIGH COUPLE

Cannabis YouTube channels are not just dominated by guys or girls getting stoned alone in their room. They also feature guys and girls getting stoned together, something that forms the basis of the channel The High Couple. Based in Hollywood, Alice and Clark share their experience of getting high together.

Videos feature topical discussions, stoner showcases, and blog content. An enjoyable feature of their videos is that several of them are exactly four minutes and twenty seconds long. Not only can you pay homage to the 420 lifestyle, but it makes videos short and snappy. Perfect for watching on the train home, or while rolling a few of your own. The High Couple also streams live once a month for that personal touch.

MR. CANUCKS GROW

Growing cannabis requires skill, determination, and knowing what to look out for. That last point is vital because cannabis plants are living, breathing organisms that do an excellent job of telling you when something isn’t right. That is one crucial aspect that makes YouTube the perfect platform for cannabis content—you get to see precisely what cannabis should look like.

In the case of Mr. Canucks Grow, his videos offer first-hand advice on cannabis growing. If you need help setting up a grow tent, fitting in-line fans, spotting nutrient problems, harvesting, you name it—chances are Mr. Canucks has a video on it. Beautifully shot, every video is a masterclass in cannabis cultivation. With content aimed at both beginners and experts, you are bound to learn something.

RUFFHOUSE STUDIOS

RuffHouse Studios pride themselves on being a hub for cannabis culture. Based on their 500-strong video catalogue, that statement appears to ring true. Their most popular uploads focus heavily on homemade edibles. This is by no means a bad thing, as the beauty of cannabis is that it can be consumed in a variety of ways.

The market for edibles has grown significantly in recent years as some users dislike smoking marijuana. If you are one of those people, seeing how to prepare infused shortbread or cannabutter makes the process far easier to understand than just reading the recipe online. Head over to RuffHouse Studios for a well-presented and well-edited highlight of everything cannabis culture has to offer.

CORAL REEFER

The banner of Coral Reefer tells you everything you need to know about the content on offer. “I believe in cannabis and you should too” is a statement that underpins everything Coral does on her channel. Whether that is Stoney Sunday or News Nug, there is a clear focus on trying to portray the beneficial influence cannabis can have on your life. The stigma attached to marijuana is slowly starting to lift, and YouTube channels like Coral Reefer do an excellent job of supporting the cause.

Coral actively encourages her audience to comment and send her suggestions on anything from places to visit and strains to smoke to the best doughnuts to eat (check out the Donut Deliberations playlist). With feel-good vibes in every video, Coral Reefer is a channel flying the flag for positive cannabis use.

10 Great Youtube Videos On Growing Weed

Many of you have written in to tell us how much you love growing videos and that you want us to make more videos. We hear you loud and clear!

But in the meantime, we’ve researched 10 great videos about growing marijuana and they’re available for instant access on YouTube.

We specifically chose these videos because they answer some of the most common questions we receive at GrowWeedEasy.com, and we found the content to be exceptional!

If there’s cannabis growing video we need to see, make sure to send us a link!

1.) How to Grow Marijuana Indoors – Beginning to End

“Growing Weed Start to Finish Beginners Guide” by From Seed to Stoned

This video is high-quality stuff. It goes through a lot of useful information quickly, the narration is great, and the production value is fantastic. You won’t watch this video and suddenly be a master grower, but you’ll get the basics (and more) in only 14 minutes!

Bonus “Beginning to End” Video (old school)

“I Grow Chronic” by Mr. Green

We found this video series many years ago, but the series is probably old enough to drive a car by now! And the guy who does the videos is…quirky to say the least. He’s painted green from head to toe, the video resolution is at least 1/3 of what’s normal these days, and he talks in a near-whisper for the videos.

But still, when I rewatch these videos in 2019 I’m surprised at how well the series holds up. The information is useful and to the point, the tone is fun but knowledgeable, and it’s a bit goofy, so you aren’t likely to feel even a little intimidated. Plus, it’s refreshing to see someone teach in a way that isn’t specifically aimed at Youtube.

Note: This tutorial doesn’t use grow tents; it shows you how to construct a grow room from scratch.

Here are links to all 9 parts in the series: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

2.) How To Make Dry Ice Hash

“How to Make Dry Ice Hash” by GrowWeedEasy.com

I’m sure you’ve realized this video isn’t on Youtube. Youtube banned this video (which hurt the videos feelings), so we moved it to Vimeo where it’s safely playing without fear of deletion.

If you want a rewarding way to use your trim that only takes minutes to do, making dry-ice hash is the way to go! Also, someone tell Youtube to stop deleting weed-related videos!

3.) Learn about how humidity affects cannabis growth

“Humidity” by MrGrowingMarijuana

When it comes to humidity, you might be surprised at how much of an effect it can have on growing cannabis plants! If the humidity is too high, your plants tend to grow slower and are more susceptible to mold. But if the humidity is too low, your plants can’t make energy as well as they normally could. They also tend to run into weird problems like unexplainable nutrient deficiencies. Despite the topic, this video is really interesting and shows you simple things you can do that will make a difference!

For even more info about how humidity affects growing marijuana, check out our tutorial on humidity, too!

4.) How to Germinate Seeds

“How To Germinate Seeds Fast | 3 Simple Steps” by Greengenes Garden

This video is a little on the longer side considering the topic of its content. But it explains everything well, and if you watch till the end, you’ll definitely walk away being able to germinate cannabis seeds. Plus, these folks peppered this video with some jaw-dropping pics of sprouting seeds. The quality and seedling pics alone make this video worth the watch.

Bonus Germination Video (less than 3 minutes!)

“Germinating seeds in paper towels” by Rodrigo0DC

This method works great for marijuana. Remember, marijuana seeds should NOT get light during the germination process. If you don’t want to use plastic sandwich bags, you can use the exact same method, but place the paper towels between 2 plates.

5.) How to Control the pH of Your Water When Growing Marijuana

“How to check and adjust the pH of your water” by Nebula Haze

Do you seem to keep getting nutrient problems and have no idea why?

It might be your pH! This video explains how to check and adjust the pH of your water before watering your marijuana garden.

6.) Grow Short and Bushy Plants: How to FIM and Top Marijuana Plants

“How to F.I.M and Top Your Marijuana Plant” by Grow420Guide

This video describes and shows two methods growers use to get additional colas (so you have a wide bushy plant instead of a tall plant with a single cola).

The two techniques are known as topping and FIMing. At GWE, we’ve covered both methods extensively and they both work exceptionally well to get your plants to grow multiple colas.

This grower likes to top then FIM his plants. We believe both methods work great, though we generally recommend topping since it tends to be more reliable when it comes to changing a plants shape. However, FIMing has a built-in safety feature in that it’s hard to make a catastrophic error while attempting to FIM. Topping in the wrong spot can mean a dead plant (though that’s very rare), but a bad FIM doesn’t really do anything.

You can FIM multiples times, and it doesn’t slow down the plant’s growth as much as topping does.

7.) Jorge Cervantes Takes You On 10 Minute Video Tour of Some of The Coolest Outdoor Marijuana Growing Spots

“Medical Marijuana Outdoor Gardens Tour – 10lb.+ MEGA Plants!!” by the legendary Jorge Cervantes

This beautiful 10-minute tour of incredible fields of outdoor marijuana plants around the world with commentary by world-renowned grower Jorge Cervantes will take your breath away.

I especially loved this comment:

“Find it funny how a beautifully filmed and put together a video showcasing FLOWERS is age-restricted based on community guidelines.”

8.) How to Make Canna-Butter – Medical Marijuana Butter Recipe

HOW TO MAKE CANNABUTTER

Medical Marijuana Butter Recipe by MonaLisaLuvsMaryJane

Link to both Parts: Part 1, Part 2

We already have a popular page on how to make cannabutter, but if you want to see how to do it in video format, this is a great tutorial.

9.) How to Tell If Your Cannabis is Ready For Harvest

How to tell if your cannabis is mature by GrowerMD

Being able to harvest your cannabis plants at the right time will result in high potency and yields. This video will give you tips on how to beat impatience and wait for the right time to “pull down” your plants.

10.) Building a Hydroponics/Aeroponic Setup

Building an Inexpensive Hydroponics/Aeroponics System by Family Plot
