With the boom of the legal cannabis industry, a peaceful arms race of sorts has emerged: Growers are under pressure to create bigger, better buds that are first to market. With this pressure came high-tech treatments and techniques that have become an industry standard. Most of these techniques come with a downside at the expense of rapid turnover, often sacrificing potency or flavor, and few can be called “green” due to the harsh chemicals used in the cultivation process.
More conscientious growers have gone back to the basics, realizing that the best product isn’t one created by impatient humans over the course of a few decades; it is the one that nature has perfected over millions of years. Soil is a key component of Mother Nature, and the best growers are following suit.
What Is Super Soil?
“Super soil,” is a growing medium that utilizes nature’s processes to cultivate healthier cannabis plants without using artificial ingredients. This soil uses the same microorganisms found in nature to break down organic material and convert it to a full spectrum of micro and macronutrients. Super soils, such as SoHum Living Soils®, are also developed to perfectly maintain moisture, aeration and acidity levels in your cannabis plant’s root system throughout its natural life cycle.
Benefits of Super Soil
The primary benefit of using a living soil like the one formulated by SoHum Living Soils® is that of superior quality! Super Soil yields tastier, ecologically derived, more potent and larger buds than an artificial soil or a hydroponic growing. If growing the best cannabis available isn’t enough for you, super soil is also safer for the environment. You can lower your carbon footprint overnight by switching to super soil as your growing medium, whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors. And you just can’t beat super soil when it comes to ease of use. No fertilizer, no more pH adjustment, flushing, or changing soil between vegging and flowering. Just water, prune, and harvest amazing cannabis!
