Green Goddess Supply Introduces The Armoire Personal Grow System

WOONSOCKET, RI, JANUARY 29, 2020 – Green Goddess Supply, recently announced the public release of its new personal home grow system, “The Armoire.” The home grow market is estimated at $4 Billion and exploding. However, growing at home is rife with complexities – most people fail their first time, and even a successful grow can be very complicated, and buying from a dispensary can be very expensive.

With its furniture-inspired look, child proof lock, ergonomic design and “Simplified, Results-Driven Nurturing Protocol,” The Armoire is specifically designed to deliver impressive results every cycle, easily and with minimal maintenance. The Armoire requires only two minutes of care daily to garner an impressive yield of 3-5 oz of dried, hand-crafted flower in as little as 60 days. The system typically pays for itself in the very first grow.
