Interview with Master Bigpun

Hello Family,

We are continuing getting to know each other through this little part of GrowDiaries Journal activity; THE INTERVIEWS. We absolutely love it, you guys are amazing, each of you has a beautiful story to tell, and we are so glad that the community is so open to sharing them! 

This time we have reached out to the fellow grower @Bigpun to ask him a couple of questions about his life, and how he ended up on this website. Here is what he has to tell you.

Q: Hey, @Bigpun. How are you doing? Please tell us about yourself. Who are you? What do you do? Where do you live? What's your favorite edible and stoner food in general?
 
Hi there, im doing well thanks for asking.
My first name is Nick and i live in Alberta Canada on a nice quiet acreage with my dog Montana. She is crazy. I own a small courier company, we deliver a little bit of everything from Dental Supplies to oil field equipment. I've got some really great family that is taking care of that business for me as I am not working right now. as for edibles I've only ever had chocolate edibles. they were okay  but I'm still more of a big joint kind of guy. But after I smoke said big joint and have the munchies that can be dealt with many ways but black liquorice always a classic hahaha that's for you @CBD_ Sweden or for the munchie that's a little higher class one could make a alberta prime rib eye at medium rare temperature mmmm ok dinner plans made hahaha

Q: What was your first grow ever? Did it turn out well? 
 
A: My first grow, which I eventually posted on here is bag seed as it was planted first.  After planting bag seed, i purchased some seeds and got my cheese auto as a freebie. Cheese finished first so that was my first harvest and I was really excited about how that turned out. I got some great quality and a decent quantity. hopefully The Beginner's luck lasts hahaha
 
Q: Why did you start growing?What resources were you using to learn about it?
 
A: I started growing cannabis to try and make it affordable for me to use as a medicine. Before cannabis I was on several medications like Oxycontin, Dilaudid, Cymbalta, benzodiazepine for sleep and many others not worth listing as you dont have time to read a novel haha. With cannabis I have been able to get off all except for one that helps a bit.  I have a serious head injury that gives me cluster headaches and widespread nerve pain along with the occasional seizure just to keep things interesting. one of the real hard Parts is that I suffer from memory loss. it can happen at any time and that's one of the main reasons grow diaries is attractive to me. I not only get to learn from all these amazing Growers but it helps me keep a record of what I've done so that when I inevitably forget it there it is and hey sometimes it's funny to read over the comments that you've left when you have no memory of leaving them thinking to yourself man that was a pretty funny comment haha 
I'd have to say i learned how to grow mostly from YouTube. I didn't have anything else to do so I watched growing videos like it was my full-time job.

Q: Who is your guru grower? 
 
A: Wow that's a tough one lets say John Berfelo from YouTube. He's a Canadian grower that grows medicine for himself and i admire his passion. One day id like to get my hands on his medi kush.

Q: How do you know @CBD_Sweden?
 
A: Oh that crazy Swede I met that wonderful person on Kik as i was invited to join the wolfpack group. I guess they needed to class The Joint up a bit. Me and CBD have a lot in common he's from Sweden I have direct Scandinavian ancestry. he's dealing with a debilitating issue as am I. i want to thank @CBD_Sweden for inspiring me to try growing cbd strains as it seems to help him so much. Maybe i can get even more help from cannabis if that is possible.I think it helps finding someone you can relate to and I will cherish that friendship for as long as I can possibly remember it exists hahaha bad joke.

Q: Is there a person on GrowDiaries who you know in real life? Who would like to meet?  Should GD organize a party? :)
 
A: I haven't met anyone from GrowDiaries. Wow there's so many people I would like to meet but definitely @CBD_Sweden and @farmerbrett I think we could get into some shenanigans. GD should definitely throw a party! 

Q: What do you think is the best aspect of keeping a Grow Diary? 
 
A: Im using grow diaries as a memory training tool because keeping the diaries helps me keep track of everything I've done with my plants. Its also nice to look back in time and see the plants from seed to weed.

Q: How did you find out about GD? 
 
A: I found out about grow Diaries looking up strains actually. I believe it was @FAST_BUDS that had a link to grow Diaries to show the people growing their strains. I thought that was awesome. if I'm interested in a genetic I can check to see how it's going with real people in the real world. it's try-before-you-buy in a way. 
 
Q: Anything you'd like to add? 
 
A: I would like to say thank you to @growdiaries for this platform as well as to all the great growers here. GD has really helped me in unexpected ways. Before Grow Diaries I shut myself off from the world  because of my head injury. GD has allowed me to take baby steps back into the world and lets me communicate with people. it really means a lot.
 
Q: Who would you want to be interviewed next?
 
A: I'd like to see my canna brother @farmerbrett do one of these. He grows some massive trees in California and I'm sure he has a great story to tell.
 
 Thanks @Bigpun for sharing your story with us. Congrats on the Master Grower status! @farmerbrett you are next!
 
Peace Growers,

@Bigpun, @CBD_Sweden, 20 years ago Ben Dronkers had said to me that Cannabis would save our world in many different ways, medicine, agriculture, oils, food, textiles.... . You both guys are pioneers in research for cannabis healing properties, and you both guys are witnesses like many others that Cannabinoides has better healing properties that our modern medicine.

I do have Johnโ€™s mobile phone number, if you want contact me on PV chat, Iโ€™m sure he could get you some of his Medi Kush after telling him your story.

I love this part of your interview, Bigpun: โ€œGD has really helped me in unexpected ways. Before Grow Diaries I shut myself off from the world because of my head injury. GD has allowed me to take baby steps back into the world and lets me communicate with people. it really means a lot.โ€

This is part of the reason Iโ€™m so happy that GrowDiaries has kept doing these interviews! It helps us get to know one another better and understand the reasons why we grow and use cannabis -and- fosters a great community based on a common passion. What a wonderful thing youโ€™ve created, GrowDiaries!

Also a shoutout to @WhiteWidow for creating a welcoming and supportive chat group adjunct to Grow Diaries where we talk about everything from growing weed to health, licorice, pets, and music- please join us on kik: WolfPack!

@BigPun, Youโ€™re an inspiration as a person. Youโ€™re always supportive and helpful with my grows. You have grown some really beautiful cannabis, and I know that itโ€™s not just luck. Itโ€™s especially meaningful that youโ€™ve worked to do so. Congratulations :tada::tada::tada:

I must state again that the purpose of group chat called WOLFPACK isnt conspiring for votes and likes, its about gathering people over the exact common interests, everyone is welcome and lets all just be very good friends all over the world :sunglasses:

Great interview. I had been hesitant to read the master interviews, but now that I have I look forward to someone reaching master (self included lol) to read the interview. Just one more cool thing about this site. Getting the story behind the grower.I had kik at one point got rid of it because I had no use for it, but might have to check out the wolfpack. And I can't forget..... congrats @Bigpun!
