The demand for organic weed has increased exponentially in the last few years. People who live in places where growing cannabis is allowed, prefer to cultivate organic weed at their own home or backyard. Many times caregivers or cannabis dispensaries find growing organic weed a better alternative to purchasing a product from the market.
If you prefer growing weed but have not yet tried the organic method, then you are in the right place. In this article, we will talk about the five main benefits of growing organic weed.
#1 A Significant Increase In Yield
When you grow weed organically, one of the main concerns was reduced yield. However, this is now a thing of the past as the new innovation called super soil has made it possible to have a higher yield when growing organically. You do not need to use any fertilizers in this case, and with just water you can get some really incredible results. These prepared mixes are easily available commercially, however, you may make your own ‘super soil’ at home by potting the soil with bone meal, guano, blood meal, worm castings and other additives.
#2 Rise In Potency
When you provide rich nutrients in the super soil, it results in a significant rise in potency. Cannabis plants have a specific set of requirements to help them achieve their full potential. The organic super soil contains the six vital macronutrients such as phosphorous, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium and sulfur. The micronutrients include boron, manganese, zinc, molybdenum, copper, and iron. The organic weed growers around the world report that their cannabis products are superior and more effective due to the complex mix of nutrients.
#3 Improved Flavor and Aroma
Organic weed is known to have improved flavor and aroma when compared to conventionally grown cannabis. In organic farming, the microenvironment is highly optimized to result in the vigorous and healthy growth of the plants to enable them to produce high quantities of terpenoids and terpenes. The terpenoids and terpenes are aromatic compounds that lend cannabis and other plants a sweet, citrus or pine-like aroma.
#4 Richer Microbe
Another amazing aspect of organic cannabis cultivation is that they provide improved yields, potency, and flavor. The organic soil contains living organisms that are rich in fungi, bacteria and other microbes in the environment.
A research on cannabis and other weed has shown that soil rich in microbiome has several benefits. They enable water retention, nitrogen-fixing, stimulates growth and also helps in preventing a variety of root diseases. So, it is recommended that organic weed growers create their own super soil and let it mature for at least thirty days before using it. This allows fungi and micro-organisms to populate the soil.
#5 Less Environmental Impact
Growing organic weed outdoors in natural sunlight is the best method to ensure less environmental impact. However, strict legal restrictions in many countries leave no choice for growers but grow cannabis indoors.
If you want to reduce the environmental impact, then growing organic weed outdoors is the best thing that you can do. However, if that is not a viable option then you can grow weed indoors using the organic method to reduce the impact.
