How much money can you make with Weed Farm in GTA Online?
Although the Weed Farm is one of the most profitable businesses in GTA Online, it is also one of the least profitable of the five in the category.
A full stock of supplies will produce three bars and earn you $189,000. However, a full stock of manufactured goods (five bars) can earn you around $300,000 in the game.
How to maximize profits from the Weed Farm in GTA Online
There are two ways to increase profits from the Weed Farm. The first and most important thing is to upgrade the business. The laptop inside the property offers the following three upgrades:
- Equipment Upgrade - $495,000
- Staff Upgrade - $136,500
- Security Upgrade - $156,750
The first two upgrades will increase the value of your product while also decreasing the production time.
The second strategy for increasing profits is to always sell in Los Santos. The selling screen displays two sellers from Blaine County and Los Santos. To make the most money, always choose the second option.
