THE IMPORTANCE OF ORGANIC PESTICIDE FREE SOIL ENHANCER WHEN GROWING CANNABIS

Today’s guest post is written by the team at CBD Education Online, the #1 resource dedicated to providing the latest and greatest CBD research.

Cannabis crops can easily be considered the new frontier of agriculture today, especially following the recent waves of marijuana legalization throughout the United States and Canada. Unfortunately, recreational and medical marijuana, and strains of marijuana commonly used to extract cannabidiol (CBD) are oftentimes devoid of pesticide regulation, which is a very real problem faced in the industry today.

Unfortunately, regulations regarding the use of pesticides in cannabis crops have fallen short of effectively managing the issue, as the industry is new and very much under-regulated. In the states of Washington, Colorado, and California, surveyed testing of dispensary marijuana strains have turned up surprisingly dangerous levels of pesticides and fungicides – and in very large percentages of product.

The importance of pesticide-free crops

Understandably, the biggest concern in utilizing soil enhancers that contain pesticides on cannabis crops is the chemical effects on the consumer.

Especially in the medical marijuana sector, those who consume marijuana and CBD products are often high-risk patients, who are often suffering from severe illnesses or disorders. Many marijuana and CBD consumers cannot afford to experience the wide range of negative health effects brought on by pesticide inhalation and consumption in addition to their pre-existing conditions.

A degradation in medical quality

Soil enhancers containing pesticides and fungicides not only degrade the quality of medicine that would otherwise be extremely beneficial to the consumer’s health, but it has been scientifically proven that these pesticides will make it into the consumer’s bloodstream following consumption. No matter the method that is used to consume, any pesticides present in the soil or on the plant at the time of harvest will be present in the final product.

Pesticide-free cannabis crops are both better for the environment, and better for those who are in close contact with the plants as well.

As the cannabis industry continues to grow, agricultural and government regulations are bound to increase in number, too. Therefore, it’s better to be on the safe and environmentally-friendly side, rather than risk a complete shutdown or hefty fines and penalties for using harmful products in larger-scale grows.

The effects of inhaling pesticides and fungicides

Both marijuana and CBD work in similar ways within the body, particularly through their effects on the endocannabinoid system. This biological nerve system, present in all mammals, is known to be the conduit of communication between the brain and body. Both THC and CBD (the two most commonly known compounds found in marijuana) target neurological receptors within the endocannabinoid system, therefore providing consumers with a range of positive health benefits.

When pesticides and fungicides are present in the soil of cannabis plants, however, they can degrade these positive effects of the plant on the endocannabinoid system. In turn, they may cause negative effects on health such as:

  • Headaches and dizziness

  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea

  • Extreme weakness and seizures

Long-term pesticide exposure has also been linked to many serious diseases, including:

  • Cancer

  • Parkinson’s disease

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Leukemia

  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma

In addition to carrying a wide array of negative side effects on health, pesticide and fungicide soil enhancers can be terrible for the environment. They can damage the soil permanently and can kill many organisms living in the soil that are essential to the healthy growth of plants.

A cleaner alternative

Using all-natural soil enhancers, such as Organic MARPHYL Marine Phytoplankton Soil Enhancer, makes for both a higher-quality plant and a product that is safer for consumption. By omitting impurities and only using organic products, the environment is better protected, as well as anyone who consumes the final product.

How it works

MARPHYL Soil Enhancer provides cannabis plants with the exact balance of potassium needed to encourage a healthy movement of nutrients and nitrogen within the plant, which is essential to photosynthesis. Roots need phosphorus to thrive, which MARPHYL Soil Enhancer encourages as well.

MARPHYL Soil Enhancer is an all-natural, fully organic product that is completely pesticide and fungicide free, and naturally provides plants with all of the potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen they need to thrive. Trace amounts of calcium and magnesium are also present, which optimize plant health and growth.

It’s best to keep it natural

When growing cannabis independently, all-natural and organic soil enhancers are key to a safe and healthy product. As many dispensaries throughput the United States have exhibited, pesticides in cannabis are far more common in dispensary products than previously thought. With an independent grow that is completely free of pesticide and fungicide-based soil enhancers, and through the use of only all-natural products, we may pave the way for a brighter, healthier future in cannabis growth.

    Can your product be use in aquaponic, and if so what dosage would you recommand not to arm the fish?

    Tank you

    • Hi Jerome,
      Indeed, our Soil Enhancer is widely used in aquaponics. You can combine 1 portion of our organic Soil Enhancer with 20 portions of water.
      Our product won’t harm the fish, as its only ingredient is 100% natural wild multi-species phytoplankton. Phytoplankton has been a natural source of nutrients for all marine organisms for millions of years.
      Hope that information helps and let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to answer.
      Warmest regards.

    When you say one portion what do you mean? For instance if i was using 1 Litre of water how much soil enhancer do i use? Also every 2 weeks?

    Ps. This is for growing cannabis.

    Thank you

    • Hi!
      Thank you for your question.
      If you have 1 liter of water, you need the amount of Soil Enhancer 20 times less, which is 50 ml.
      Any time you want to calculate the ration, take whatever water amount you need and divide it by 20, then you have one portion of the Soil Enhancer and 20 portions of water.
      We advise watering your plants with this mixture as frequently as you would have watered them using just water.
      Hope that helps!
