About ILGM

Meet Robert Bergman And The Team

Hi there,

I’m Robert Bergman, the founder of I Love Growing Marijuana. Since 2012, I’ve been writing about growing marijuana, but I’ve been growing it for even longer than that. Here’s a little bit more about me as well as the rest of the team.

My Early Days

My fascination with marijuana started very early. As a matter of fact, by the mid-90s, I was growing marijuana in and around Amsterdam. At first, it was just small home grows where I produced a few plants at a time. However, I just loved it too much to stay small. After a while, I got really good at it and moved on to mega grows with industrial sized grow rooms and lab breeding.

My Mission

Eventually, I had to stop growing marijuana. That didn’t mean I wasn’t still passionate about it. I had learned too much about the marijuana plant to walk away. Although I loved every bit of professional marijuana growing, I knew those days were behind me. 

How could I continue doing what I loved? I figured, with over 20 years of experience at it, why not share what I’ve learned? I knew that the internet was the best way to reach the most people, so I started a blog. It would be a blog about growing marijuana.

From the beginning, I had big ideas for my blog. I wanted it to be a place where I’d write about everything related to growing marijuana, from caring for your plants and maintaining security, to accessing the highest quality seeds. I’d also discuss harvesting and selling. Above all, I wanted my readers to understand the entire process. For me, it would be part closure, part giving back.

ILGM Was Born

In 2012 some friends and I decided to make this dream a reality.  We launched I Love Growing Marijuana with this intention – share my knowledge and reach those looking to learn.

The blog was a hit, but people wanted to know where they could buy seeds. So, we partnered with top breeders to connect our readers with the best seeds on the market. Although it wasn’t our initial plan, it made sense. From the beginning, we wanted to focus on helping others grow, so why not provide seeds as well?

Helping you grow means supporting you throughout the entire process. So, in addition to providing the best information, we’re also keen on customer service and support after you receive your seeds. We want to make it easy for anyone to become an expert grower.

Why did we do this? It’s simple really; we love growing marijuana.

Happy growing!

Meet the ILGM Team

Robert Bergman

Robert


The founder of I Love Growing Marijuana, Robert Bergman, is a marijuana-growing expert that enjoys sharing his knowledge with the world. He combines years of experience, ranging from small-scale grows to massive operations, with a passion for growing. His articles include tutorials on growing marijuana, guides on the benefits of medical marijuana, and summaries of marijuana strains.

Robert’s profile

Claire


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.

Alex


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.

Sarah


Sarah isn’t based in the ILGM office in Amsterdam but sits across the big pond in the US. Nevertheless, 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!

Sarah’s profile

Logan


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


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.

Stacy


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…

Mitch


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


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


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.

Jenny


Marijuana legislation can be complicated, but Jenny Bloom is always up for the task. Although not a lawyer, her experience as a reporter and PR specialist help her understand legal aspects – especially when it relates to growing marijuana. A passionate supporter of legalization and home growing, Jenny writes articles on marijuana laws and occasionally collaborates with other marijuana enthusiasts for ILGM eBooks.

Jenny’s profile

Peter


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


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. Jeremy likes to make sure he always has some Durban Poison lying around.

Marcella


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!

Jacques


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


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!

Hans and the Lemmings


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!

Sean Webber


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 / Dory


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.

Anthony


There are many products related to growing marijuana; so many that we needed a dedicated person to review them all. Anthony is that person. If there’s a product that will help you grow marijuana, he’s likely tried it or at least heard of it. More than simple opinion pieces, Anthony writes articles that highlight some of the best growing products on the market combined with advice on how to best use them.

Bob


Not to be confused with Robert, Bob writes about how others grow marijuana. He uses his growing experience to identify the best stories and then ensures they are easy to follow for everyone else. Although not as experienced as Robert, Bob has completed a few successful home grows of his own and loves the craft. However, like his gardens, Bob tends to stay incognito.
