Starting January 1st we will be offering marijuana growing kits to our patients.
You never know enough about growing weed. People have been growing cannabis for thousands of years. But, that’s probably part of the problem – too many experts!
Fortunately, the cannabis world is dynamic. New strains are bred and grown. Old strains fall out of favor. New fertilizers and technologies come along. And, regulations rear their head.
That also means there are new rules for growing indoors, outdoors, or hydroponic systems, each with their own needs.
Remembering that most of the history has been on a black market, you can’t be surprised no one discloses their secrets.
So, let’s try to consider it all.Texture, drainage, and water retention are important, but any commercial soil will claim these qualities. Cannabis needs water and oxygen from the soil.  Too much water, and the roots don’t grow. Not enough, and the leaves dry out. So, you need soil that retains just enough water and not too much.
Preferred soils are dark, rich, and loose. It has no wood, stones, or debris. And, it does not turn to mud when watered. You can mix in vermiculite, perlite, worm castings, and compost to build a healthy soil.

 

Have you ever tried cannabis for medical reasons?
For beginners cannabis is not addictive. This means that, no matter how much marijuana or THC you imbibe, you won’t become addicted which is great. You won’t become physically addicted. This is because there is nothing inherently addictive within cannabis, making it the perfect drug to rely on for long-term treatments.
This might not seem that important for those looking to use it for only a limited time, but for those looking for more long-term treatment, it is incredibly significant.

 

The time has come and soon you will be able to grow cannabis at home!
