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.

 

As you can see, the list of potentially treatable conditions ranges from minor to severe. Some pet owners claim that the CBD oil they give to the cats works well for situations where inflammation is the primary cause. It is a claim that makes sense because cannabidiol apparently has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Your Cat Has an Endocannabinoid System! (So Does Your Dog)

Did you know that all mammals have an ECS? Up until relatively recently, we didn’t even know that humans had it. As is the case with us, the ECS helps maintain the natural balance in your pet’s body. To understand how the cannabinoids in hemp and weed work on the ECS, you must first learn more about neurotransmitters and receptors.

 

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