Low costs

Relying on the power of the sun, you won’t need to spend a ton of money on an outdoor grow. You’ll need some soil, fertilizer, seeds or clones, and maybe a small greenhouse to get them started. You won’t need to pay for electricity for lights, AC units, or dehumidifiers, and you can even collect rainwater.

Big yields

The sky’s the limit with outdoor plants—you can let them get as big and tall as you want, as long as they’re manageable. One plant can potentially yield between a half-pound and full-pound of dried weed! Growing a handful of hands for yourself is more than enough. With an indoor grow, your space is a lot more restricted.

Environmentally friendly

Indoor grows can be wasteful, using a ton of electricity to power all those lights, fans, and other equipment. The sun and the wind are free!

It’s fun and relaxing

Don’t underestimate the therapeutic value of gardening. It’s relaxing to spend some time outside, roll up your sleeves, and get your hands dirty for a while. And there’s nothing better than smoking something you grew yourself.

Yes so true. But also can be a crap shoot outdoors. Will it be a sunny summer or a rain summer. You also have lots of pests outdoors, pollination from bees, aphids, mites, birds, deer, ect.. but the benefits are way greater outside and yields are huge. Just got to pay attention outside with nature and be in top of it.

What Colamaker is saying is very true mother nature can make you or break you depending on the summer because every year is different and the common pests that attack outdoor cannabis can wipe you out too eg powdery mildew, aphids , stalk boring worms a new pest that we have been dealing with the last 2 summers and so on. My advice is to choose a strain that is more adaptable to outdoor growing. Strains that have a shorter growing season 50 to 65 days tops , mold and mildew tolerant strains, and lean more toward indica dominant crosses because they tend to finish earlier than sativa dominant breeds. There is lots of info on cannabis strains that are good outdoor producers.

You forgot to mention flavour profiles and how they differ between growing indoor and outdoor. It's the same difference as a hot house tomato, or a garden fresh, grown in the dirt tomato. It's a world of difference.
