GTA illegal businesses are no less than an adventure. There's a fear of cops catching thieves and even your desperation to steal resources. Running a business is not all sunshine and rainbows, primarily the GTA Online Weed farm business. This is because you have to grind yourself hard to generate profits.

When I began with illegal businesses in GTA, I heard it was a loss. However, to diversify my income, I moved ahead with kudos; it works if managed efficiently. So, go for it only if you are a hard-core gamer, as it will also test your entrepreneur and gaming skills! If you are a GTA player who doesn't settle for less and extraordinary, let's check out more about it.

Requirements of Setting Up a Weed Farm

Like every GTA business, you also need a Motorcycle Clubhouse to run the Weed farm business.

If you don't have one, then here's how you have to get:

  • Head over to access the in-game laptop and access the Maze Bank Foreclosures Website
  • Navigate to the Clubhouse section and select your preferred location for it
  • Buy the MC Clubhouse and go to Motorcycle Club
  • Register as an MC president to proceed

It's important to note that it's most profitable if all your businesses are nearby and in centralized locations. Therefore, before buying MC Clubhouse consider your business location and choose accordingly.

How To Setup A Weed Farm Business in GTA Online

After setting up the MC Clubhouse, you must set up your business as the next step.

  • Go to Open Road Network in MC Clubhouse
  • Expand the Buy Business tab
  • Choose Weed option
  • Browse and finalize your preferred location
  • Proceed to buy it

For the first set of resources, you should drive to a location where you will get a Pony van. It would contain supplies, get them and begin your business production.

However, they will be your first set of resources. You have to buy further supplies, or else your production will stop. More supplies come for $15,000 per unit, which is the base price. It further increases depending on your needs.

However, the legitimate fun is stealing supplies from another organization. Surprisingly, it's more profitable as well!

Downtown Vinewood $1,358,000 It is located in the neighborhood of Vinewood, a commercial area in the capital. The site is primarily known for shopping and business purposes. Consequently, there are more stores and greater chances of increased sales.
San Chianski Mountain Range $715,000 They are one of the longest Mountain ranges in the states. However, there are no roads or civilization in the area. Thus, it is more affordable than others on the list. It is remote, and many players get lost and stranded there.

Downtown Vinewood is the ideal location for setting up your Weed farm since it is centralized. Thus, you can deliver supplies and get newer ones without wasting time and penny on travel.

It costs $1,358,000, which might be expensive, but it's worth it. You can visit other locations if you cannot afford it.
