Step 1 – Go to the Weed Store “Smoke on the Water” on the boardwalk by the beach, and Purchase “Weed Buds”.
Step 2 – Planting – You can plant your weed ANYWHERE on the map, just simply drag your Weed Buds over the USE option in your inventory… as long as it follows the next criteria.
1- Must be planted in Grass/Dirt
2- Must have some sunlight
3- Cannot be planted on a steep hill
Step 3 – Tending to the plant, keep track of the growth and tend to the plant with “High-Grade Fertilizer”, you can purchase the fertilizer at UTools.
Shortly after planting, your little sapling will need some tending. It depends on soil quality, but it’s within 30 seconds.
When the sapling has been tended, it will need some time to grow, and then it will need tending again. If you fail to tend your plant, it will die. What is needed for the tending process is High-Grade Fertilizer bought at UTools.
From planting to harvesting, the average is 10 minutes, this is how it went for me:
Stage 1: Planting
Stage 2 & 3: happens about 20 to 30 seconds after planting to tend
Stage 4 & 5: at 5 Minutes after planting.
Stage 6: Harvesting at 10 minutes after planting.
At any point during this process, anyone can come along and destroy your plant, so you want to put it somewhere nobody will find it. Keep in mind that anyone can harvest it when it’s ready, too, so you might want to guard it!
Step 4 – items needed, Weed Grinder (Buy at weed store), Rolling Papers (Bought at the 24/7 or Weed Store), and Collected Weed (from growing it)
Simply drag your Collected Weed onto the USE option in your inventory to start making 4G bags! You will need Bags from UTools.
Step 5 – Drag your 4G bags into USE to make Weed (1G) Baggies, you will also require bags. You can sell these… on the street. (You will need to carry at least 1 joint on you for the AI to be interested in buying 1G bags from you) To make joints do step 6
Step 6 – Drag your Weed 1G bags into Use, to make Joints. Be sure to have rolling papers also in your inventory to do this. You cannot sell Joints. Smoke them to gain armor.
Oh, by the way, you have to keep track of your own stuff and try to remember where you plant your weed. If you forget tough luck!
