When you want to grow medical marijuana for your dispensary, a number of questions may arise: Which seeds are the best? Which substrate should you use? How should you water the plants? And many more questions.
In this article, we will be answering these questions and providing answers to many answer questions you may have so that you can grow medical marijuana properly.
Genetics Is Very Important
The quality of medical marijuana is partially determined even before the seeds are cast into the soil. Seed selection is very important as it will affect the final income. When it comes to strain, growers have their own individual preferences. Some growers will go for the powerful, cerebral sativa high that makes them feel motivated and energized, whereas others prefer stoney indica that makes them feel relaxed and calm. However, in our case, you will have to go for medical strains which have higher concentrations of CBD.
Use Seeds, Not Clones
Many people often wonder whether they should use seeds or clones. While growing using clones may come with some advantages, it is very risky. Clones grow into plants with the same genetic copy as the original ‘mother’ plant. That means that the genetic traits that are passed over can carry diseases and weaknesses that the original plan had. And if you will have a clone from a plant whose history you don’t know, you run the risk of starting off on the wrong foot.
Just like the human body, marijuana plants need the right type and amount of nutrients in order to remain vibrant and robust. These nutrients must be available in the soil in which the plant is growing.
If you grow marijuana plants in poor-quality soil, chances are that they will become deficient in certain elements and minerals. These deficiencies might slow the growth process and reduce the quality of the plant in general. To ensure that your marijuana plant is receiving sufficient amounts of nutrients, plant it in quality organic soil that’s full of nutrients.
During the vegetative stage, the marijuana plants grow well in humid environment and bloom in high humidity. The plants prefer less humidity during their flowing stage, with optimal levels of about 40%.
There you go! When growing medical marijuana, you need to make sure that the plants are growing under optimal conditions so that they can thrive. Remember that the quality of the plants depends on how you grow it.
