To date, the cultivation, consumption, and possession of cannabis in the United States remain illegal under federal law. At the state level, however, the legality of cannabis ranges from legal recreational use, medical use, and restricted medical use to illegality. It appears that legality has contributed to the growth of WeedTubers in some states. The most popular WeedTuber has over 1.5 million subscribers and is none other than CustomGrow420.
Its popularity has gone beyond YouTube and has also reached other social media platforms. He has no less than 445,000 followers on Instagram and about 20,000 on Twitter. The followers of CustomGrow420 love him for educating people about growing and smoking marijuana (cannabis). His content should also be entertaining and yes, he is a legal patient or so he says.
Who Is Customgrow420?
Customgrow420, who was born on May 4, 1984, currently resides in Rochester in the United States. The American lists his home town as Snowmass Village in Colorado and N. Hale University as his college. He has done so many crazy stunts on camera and is obviously loved for it. Sometimes he smokes grass until he trembles, sweats extremely, and almost faints once. How this can be called therapeutic still amazes everyone who is not under his “smoke curtain”.
Besides his personal YouTube channel, Customgrow420 is also a part of the Filthy Frank Show, where he makes a series of cameos. His most remarkable performance so far is that of Frank’s own song. On his channel, he has a variety of catchphrases, but his fans seem to love his grass-related scream the most. It could simply be a case of rapt admirers of a WeedTube idol who simply love everything he “smokes”.
What’s His Real Name?
In case you haven’t heard, word on the street is that CustomGrow is not the real name of this WeedTuber. Okay, not just the rumor on the street, it’s the truth, and we should know that our judgment is not (yet?) clouded by a crumb. His real name is Joel Hradecky.
Apart from that, the internet seems to be the karma of the modern man. It is on record that a Joel Adam Hradecky, aged 22, was arrested in 2006 along with four other people for assaulting people in suburban Lakewood Fort Steilacoom Park. They were each indicted in Pierce County Superior Court on nine felony counts; six counts of second-degree assault and three counts of robbery in the first degree.
Well, although some circles claim that it’s not CustomGrow, although it happens to be his real name and his age is consistent with his age at the time, we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Not to forget that a certain Joel was also arrested in CustomGrow’s hometown. Make your own prints, we don’t do that.
Wife or Girlfriend, Is He Married?
Yes, contrary to what you might think, Joel is married – to Emily Hradecky, and they have three lovely children together. Our concern is simply that these children don’t become addicted to grass before they even know what it is and what health challenges it could pose. Several of his fans describe him as a man with iron lungs, but we really hope that this will prove true, at least for the sake of his family.
Other Facts To Know About CustomGrow
1. Removal from YouTube
Not so long ago YouTube stepped up its policy, which led to many WeedTubers being thrown out of the room after simultaneous strikes. The king did not remain unscathed, his channel was also deleted. There was such a loud uproar among the fans that some WeedTubers looked for alternative ways to “educate” their followers further. On 6 June 2018, YouTube apparently restored some channels, including Customgrow420, but many “enlightening instructions” on cannabis smoking had been lost. Some avid followers swear that the story was erased and a time gap was created.
2. His Net Worth
With all he goes through to teach the untaught masses about the use of cannabis, CustomGrow certainly makes a lot of green. He gets a lot of brand recommendations and what do you get out of it? So it’s no surprise that he’s said to have an estimated net worth of $500,000. This figure could be much higher considering his fame and popularity at WeedTubing.
3. Run-in With the Law
His camera helped him to be watched by the police when he shot and posted a video with some of his friends violating the “No trespass” law at the Vance Creek Bridge in Shelton. They walked on the steel bars while smoking, and some were even high. This did not please the law enforcement authorities, who saw it as an attempt to blatantly violate the law.
