The game’s premise is this: your grow gets busted, and now you have to start from scratch to become the Tony Montana of weed. You start by growing your plants one at a time, regularly watering them, feeding them nutrients until you harvest your crop, and sell your goods to your friendly neighborhood potheads. Selling them weed and smoking joints with them earns you respect, which gets you better deals in the long run. If you want to get rid of a customer, you can “diss” them by flipping them off, but this loses you respect.
Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm is all about collecting cash. It was a lot less hands-on than the other games. This worked out great because it let me multitask instead of spending the time with my eyes glued to my phone. This game rewards you with oodles and oodles of coins, and you can double or triple your profits by either watching an ad or spending gems. Water is unlimited, which is nice, if not unrealistic. You can play music for your plants which I always thought was nice, though I assume you are playing Wiz Khalifa’s music, which would not be my first choice.

Activities such as watering your plants, feeding them nutrients , etc., cost you energy (much like they do in real life). Pretty quickly, you run out and have to regularly replenish your energy; otherwise, the game will nag you until you do. Pretty early on in the game, you receive a fridge, which partially replenishes your energy bar. As your operation grows (pun sort of intended), it becomes more challenging to maintain your energy. If you do not want to wait the two minutes to recover what is probably one-sixth of your energy, you have the option of watching an ad (of which there are plenty) or purchasing it (real money, not in-game currency).
The growing in the game is more accurate than in other online weed growing games. Watering and caring for your plants requires more than just pointing and clicking on said plants; you have to actually make the motions to do so. You also have to deal with pests, such as spider mites .

If you are reading this page, we already have one thing in common: we think weed is awesome. You know what else is awesome? Video games.
Other games, such as Weed Farmer and Weed Tycoon, remain active on the app store for now—but these games weren't as popular or as well-rated as Weed Firm was.
"This was entirely Apple's decision, not ours," Manitoba Games wrote on Weed Firm's web page. "We guess the problem was that the game was just too good and got to number one in All Categories, since there are certainly a great number of weed based apps still available, as well as games promoting other so-called 'illegal activities' such as shooting people, crashing cars and throwing birds at buildings."
At least, not this specific game. Weed Firm, a popular app that allowed players to experience "the vicious and lawless career of Mr. Ted Growing," was recently pulled from the app store according to the developers , Manitoba Games.
You can find places to buy weed on the app store. You can rate different strains of weed. You can download apps that teach you more about marijuana, or get apps that will give you various cosmetic weed changes to your phone. You can even roll fake joints. You can't, however, download a game where you grow marijuana.
The developers say they're going to bring the game back, with some alterations.
"The Apple version might need to be censored a bit to comply with Apple's strictest requirement since they are going to be looking very attentively at what we submit from now on," they say.
Except instead of tomatoes, players can grow and trade ‘FLOWERs’ — representing cannabis buds, in the Flowerpatch game world.
W hilst it takes a whole load of effort to be a real farmer (hats off to them), with farming games, you get all the warm fuzzy feelings associated with a bumper harvest, without waking up before sunrise to defrost your tractor. Bored of tending those fava beans? Don’t want to milk the cows? Save and log off, and you’re done for the night — perfect.
And game developers worked this out early-on. The first farming games were pretty simple. The first real dedicated farming simulator which gained widespread recognition was Harvest Moon, a SNES game released in 1996, which let players, well… farm.
In traditional farming games, the virtual farm you spent hours and hours building, and your precious crops, are all stored either on a console hard drive, or if it’s an online game, they’re simply on a centralized server. Despite you working hard for them, they’re never actually yours. But what if there was a way to turn your virtual ranch and prized tomato into an immutable and scarce digital asset? That’s where blockchain comes in.
Farming games have existed throughout the history of gaming, but just as mechanization changed the face of real agriculture, blockchain is promising to change the way we play farming games, starting with cannabis cultivation.
Why is Blockchain Good for (Virtual) Farmers?
Whilst crypto-critters have already been made with both Ethereum’s CryptoKitties and Tron’s Tron Dogs, those inert animals are just cryptographic collectibles —at present they don’t actually do anything, and they’re only worth trading for their scarcity.
