I am from the UK, Living in London.  I have no money but I am a cancer patient and I want to start growing my own plants.  I was thinking if I start just two plants one CBD and one THC.  I can then gradually do more as I get independent.  
I am also looking for advise on this to be honest.

Sorry to hear your bad news AI. It can't be easy to be going through what you're going through. Glad you came here for help Smile

You can get strains that are CBD and THC, at a level balance rather than growing one CBD and one THC. It up to you though. 

Do you have a space you can grow in? Something around 2 ft x 2ft, that is around 4 ft high?

You can grow a couple of plant under cheap CFL lights, in a small space. It won't bring you huge yields but it is something. Then you can upgrade as your saving money not buying street weed.

Id say, 2 Auto flowering plants, under 24 hours of CFL lights, grown in soil, will be a good option for you. 

what do you think about this AI?

Indoor grow would be the only viable solution as you're in the UK...you can literally hang a light in a cupboard, germinate seeds and grow plants using poundland nutrients & cheap compost...not the ideal solution but cheap Smile

How much do you need/use ?

You will need a bigger set up for this AI. 1m x 1m tent setup.... It'll be a couple hundred quid to get a set up that size. It might be better for you to start small, and save some money? If you can get a 1m set up, that would be awesome, as that will grow you four plants and get you the yield you need.

Ok I like this advise of yours I can do it then in my dinning room. I have a shed but I don't have electric in it.  How much will all this cost as I will also need to buy soil, seeds and fertiliser

Can get a full set up in the UK for about £200. Soil and food wont be much more than £50 for everything. Seeds will be cheap too. Less than £300 and you'll be growing Smile
