You will be hard-pressed to find any plants as big as these monsters.

In the video below, legendary cannabis cultivation expert Jorge Cervantes visits the farm of Will Feetham, vice president of the Southern Oregon Sungrown Growers Guild, to marvel at the huge honking marijuana plants growing there.

Cervantes estimates that each of the towering monsters will yield somewhere above 10 pounds of manicured buds, maybe as much as 15 pounds. That's a whole lot of pot from one plant.

These plants are grown outdoors, in the ground (as opposed to in pots), relying on sunlight, only organic inputs, and lots and lots of water. Farmer Will says he's giving each plant 150 gallons of water a week. He also says pot farming is still easier on water supplies than farm crops like alfalfa or cash crops like wine crops.

This video is from a year ago this week, just before the plants were cut down. Right now, all across the country, pot plants are being harvested, although you will be hard-pressed to find any as big as these monsters.

You'll have to sit through a few seconds of introductory material before you actually get to Will's farm, but persevere, and you will be amazed. Enjoy!
