Plants get hungry. They need a nutritious and well-balanced diet to live well, just like us. Similarly, avoiding processed and synthetic food is beneficial for plants as well as humans. Of course cannabis hardly has a choice about where it’s planted, so it’s up to the grower to provide the medium containing the most nutritious components possible.
Cannabis nutrients found in stores are certainly an option and many are effective when applied to specific situations. The cannabis plant however, has a span of nutritive preferences between its two primary subspecies (indica and sativa). Choosing individual components as needed across an entire grow cycle, especially one with different varieties, quickly becomes cumbersome. The best way to achieve the optimal organic harvest is to carefully select a soil mix containing everything cannabis needs from the start.
