Organic Living Soil & Your Bud
Recently we got our hands on some sticky, dank, yummy organic cannabis grown with live soil! Some of the most delicious weed grows in live soil. Making it a real craft and a preferred growing method for the chronic connoisseurs. This technique is very popular with long time growers, all-natural, synthetic-free, living and breathing cannabis cultivation at its best. What is living soil and why is it important to you. Well because you are what you blaze, and you should care about what your inhaling. Just like the other greens in your life you want the happy, healthy vibrant organic veggies why should it be different with your weed?
This is a new concept to me, however in the world of growing living soil, also sometimes known as no-till or living organics has been around for many years. Its how all plants start their journey, with rich soil that’s moving with life and a forming a food web by breaking down the organic matter in the dirt to help create fertilizer. So, picture these millions of microorganisms living in healthy rich dirty constantly giving nutrition’s directly to the root, helping aerate the soil, as well as retaining a perfect amount of water. These microorganisms can be made up of tiny bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, arthropods and even earthworms big enough for our naked eye to see. For some people this is the only way to grow! Taking advantage of mother nature and the organic fertilizer produced by the good creepy crawlies living in your dirt.
How does this effect the plant and bud you smoke? Well by growing in the organic soil the plant has full potential to be the best it can be. Mother nature really knows her stuff when it comes to these garden helpers. By using living soil, you will yield bigger, more potent buds and with minimum effort because the microorganisms have your back feeding the soil with organic, rich fertilizer. Because the soil is working to feed and protect the plant there is no need for added chemicals, fertilizers and pest controls. Sounds weird that added bugs to your dirt will help keep away other bugs, but it does. If you are worried about more harmful pests while growing, you can make an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) spray by using Neem/Karanja meal. Because the soil is constantly being turned and moved by the worms and other microbes this allows the soil to be perfectly aerated giving the roots a direct flow of oxygen and other nutrients it may need. This also allows perfect water retention, letting you slack a bit while the little farmers in your garden do their job! Nobody can grow like mother nature!
The Strains we have that are grown with living soil are the organic Zelly’s Gift and Apple Star! Right now, these are my favourites, the Zelly’s gift is a beautiful sativa strain with a beautiful taste and a strong dank smell that you can’t help but want to smoke. Zelly’s Gift is a flavorful cross of an Afgoo x Purple Thai x Super Lemon Haze x God Bud father and a Jack Herer mother. This is my favourite wake n’ bake now because it has such uplifting effects. Like a pure shot of energy. You can really notice the difference in taste when it comes to organic live soil bud. I am super impressed with this idea and method and for what ever reason the idea of mother nature taking over with her garden helpers to grow the best bud really did shock me, and then I smoked the bud and was even more shocked!!
10/10 I recommend you try one of the organic Live soil strains before its gone! Stay medicated 😊
