Cannabis – A plant like no other

 Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Cannabis

Humanity has been evolving with cannabis for over 14,000 years. From its nutritional values to its industrial usages, passing by medical applications and the famous “peace pipe”, it’s importance within our heritage is undeniable.

We believe that the first step to bringing back cannabis to its rightful place is education. Education on the cannabis plant itself, its history and known usages. 
For the past 70 years we have been implicitly taught that “hemp”, “marijuana” and now “medical cannabis” are different plants when in fact they’re all different strains of Cannabis.

This page will be in constant evolution as we will always be adding to the knowledge base. And if you have knowledge you want to share don’t hesitate to contact us.

Indoor grower, nutrient provider

As an indoor grower you’re trying to reproduce outdoor conditions for your plant to develop in optimal conditions. “In the wild”, the soil is replenished naturally, whether by decaying organic matter, fungi, rainfall, our ecosystem basically. Here, your baby is in a pot without natural nutrient replenishment so there’s some knowledge to be acquired in regards to feeding and taking care of your soil.

One way is by constantly adding nutrients for the plant to absorb, the other is by creating a living, healthy and sustainable soil.
For the moment we’ve mostly have been doing the first option but are learning and implementing the second as it’s much more sustainable long term. Added bonus?  living healthy soil protects you from nasty invading pests 😉 Here’s what we’ve learned so far on the subject
