I’m Robert Bergman. I’m a marijuana growing enthusiast and the founder of ILGM. I’ve spent the last 25 years learning everything there is to know about growing marijuana. When I started growing I was in a home-based setup where 5-plants were all I had space to grow!
I’ve grown a lot since then (pun intended). I’ve run industrial-sized plantations and labs where we bred newer, better, and more reliable strains. Then, after years of large scale growing, I had an idea.
I wanted to share my knowledge of growing weed and I had a lot (nearly two decades worth). In that time I’ve dealt with every issue imaginable from:
- How to best care for your plants based on their strain
- Security issues
- Getting quality seeds
- Harvesting the right way to get the most from your yield
- And selling it
Now I want to share my experience with you!
That’s why in 2012, along with some of my friends, I created I Love Growing Marijuana (ILGM). It was a place where I could share in-depth details on everything people needed to know to grow marijuana crops that produced better bud and bigger yields. The blog’s popularity grew quickly, and so did our following. I decided to make the most of this and bring together marijuana breeders from all over so people just like you had access to the best seeds the market has to offer.
Why? Simple. We love growing marijuana. That’s why we made the process as easy as possible.
Every order is shipped for free to each and every U.S. state.
Here’s the deal. Our goal is to help you grow the bud you want and enjoy the results of being an expert grower, even if you have no experience growing! That’s why we provide in-depth training resources to help you get the best grow possible:
My hope is that you get the cannabis seeds, resources, and grow you want. That’s why if there’s something you need you can’t find on our site let us know. This way we can get you growing right away!
ILGM Company Details
Meet the ILGM Team
Robert Bergman | Founder, Grow Expert
My favorite strain to grow is my own Gold Leaf of course! Both the fem and the autoflower are perfect to my taste. But enough about me, let me introduce these great people I get to work with daily!
Stacy | Support Supervisor
Customer support supervisor Stacy won't take a rest until our customers are happy! Stacy is famous for her kind heart, big smile, and overall loveliness. Her wonderfulness even extends beyond customers– she also makes sure there's plenty of interesting content shared on our social pages. Stacy was an actual Girl Scout. So guess what Her Favorite Strain is...
Claire | Support Angel
Customer support is a priority at ILGM, and Claire was the first to answer the call. A real angel with a firm side, Claire ensures things are done right while keeping customers happy. Claire loves Super Silver Haze for its nice body high, energy plus while also good for pain relief.
Sarah | Support Angel
Sarah is one of the later additions to the ILGM family, but we love her all the same! Whether she's participating in 4 different D&D campaigns or singing silly songs to her cat, Sarah can always be found with a bong in hand. Her favorite strain is Zkittlez because it matches her colorful personality and hair!
Alex | Support Hero
Alex recently joined our customer support team and we think it’s safe to say that he is the most passionate about growing cannabis out of all our customer support angels! He LOVES spending time with his 2 cats. Seriously, ask him about his cats if you're a cat lover too! He loves lighting up her own batch of California Dream.
Logan | Support Hero
Logan is our support wizard! He responds so quickly to your emails that he must be using some sort of magic. If you ask us where he learned that skill, it must be from the countless D&D sessions he’s played. Obviously, this means his favorite strain is (dungeon) Master Kush.
Maria | Support Angel
Maria is the newest addition to the team and shares a time zone with Sarah. She helps ensure that you get a reply swiftly, even when other team members aren’t available. She’s a sucker for a good night of relaxing as well though, so her favorite strain is the new addition to the store; G13.
Mitch | Support Hero
Officially came in to help our customer support team but soon showed that he can do so much more! He’s a big help ‘behind the scenes' of the website. Full of energy, sharing new ideas, and rapping along with music, our office grandma ‘Jane’ sometimes needs to hush him! In his spare time, he loves to lose himself in photography. He loves hazes like Blue Haze. He's actually growing one on his balcony this year!
Jane | Financial Support
Jane is our badass grandma! When she’s not busy with numbers for ILGM she loves to clear her head by hitting the road on her motorcycle (strictly Harley!) and doing intense bootcamp sessions. Jane started smoking Purple Haze when she discovered Jimi Hendrix and never looked back.
Sophie | Financial Support
As Jane was getting more and more busy doing all the finance work, we had to get an extra set of hands aboard. Luckily, Sophie fits the bill perfectly. She’s a real productivity monster in the spreadsheets and her brainpower is unmatched. She prefers keeping focus so her favorite strain is White Widow CBD Autoflower.
Latewood | Grow Support
Latewood is a full-time grower that helps moderate our grow forum. He ensures growers have the information they need, based both on personal experience and what can be found in the ILGM grow guides. Latewood's favorite is the Strawberry Kush strain.
Jenny | Editor-in Chief
Jenny is the team butterfly that keeps the online aspect of ILGM connected with the real world. While she tends to help herself to way too many snacks and randomly gets into dance-offs with Zoe, it wouldn’t be the same without her. Gelato is her favorite strain. Perhaps she just has a sweet tooth.
Peter | Marketing Manager
Peter won’t rest until he makes another great partnership or deal for ILGM! And when he does rest, he likes to do that by traveling the world and listening to 70s music. Peter is an all-round laid back guy but don’t piss him off because he’s a great boxer! His top pick is Gold Leaf.
Jeremy | Affiliate Manager
Jeremy is our graphic designer but next to that he also manages our affiliates and does outreach! He absolutely loves being in the mountains! So when he’s not being creative creating art for ILGM, you can find him skiing, hiking, or floating down the rivers in his boat. Riley likes to make sure he always has some Durban Poison lying around.
Marcella | Affiliate Manager
As the latest addition to the marketing team, Marcella makes sure the bulk of our wonderful affiliates stay happy. Have a question about the program? She’s your gal! Next to that she fills her time being the sunshine of the marketing team. Her favorite strain? Sunset Sherbet of course!
Hans | Shipping
Hans makes sure our customer’s shipments arrive exactly as ordered. The Lemmings make sure Hans keeps working. At the moment his favorite strain is Gorilla Glue. Easy to grow and a great smoke!
Webber | Code Wizard
Sometimes the website gets broken. If that happens, there’s Webber. Most of the time no one has any idea what he is talking about, but he always fixes it, so it works. He hadn't grown before he started with ILGM but he just finished his first round of Skywalker OG. Why this strain? Who else finished the Death Star!
Doris | Cuddlecreature
Doris is the highly unmotivated office pet. For a long time, he was mistaken for a girl, so he’s also called Dory, although he rarely responds to either name. He enjoys snuggling with Stacy and taking long daytime naps.
Jacques | Business Architect
A true OG, Jacques was the first to help make ILGM a reality. Although he still cherishes those days when he and Robert shared an office, he enjoys his current view much more. So chill that the staff calls him Ocean, Jacques is usually in the background making sure things go as planned. His go-to strain to grow and light up is OG Kush.
Dale | Manager
You could call Dale a webmaster, but he’s way too cool for that. Instead, he’s more like a spider; devouring bugs, creating huge webs and scaring the heck out of some people. He’s harmless though, (when left alone). This season he will be growing some Blueberry Autoflowers!
