Living soil for cannabis: A beginner’s guide
What are the pros and cons of living soil for cannabis?
• Living soil can be replenished after use and re-used several times.
• Living soil typically ensures a great taste and aroma on the buds.
• With a sufficiently large grow container of living soil, you may not need to add any bottled (mineral) nutrients since the living soil is constantly creating its own new nutrition.
• Living soil allows fully organic growing without the need for bottled additives. This also means that flushing is rarely advised with living soil.
• Living soils are often crafted in smaller quantities by specialist producers. As such a bag of living soil may cost many times that of a standard grow shop soil. Given that most growers get great results from traditional types of grow medium they may feel reluctant to try something new. Especially when it’s expensive.
El Chapo OG is a potent indica strain out of California that smells of rich earth and pine. With dense jade popcorn buds that exhibit a shimmering coat of trichomes, this strain is visually striking and worth keeping on display. Its effects are initially stunning and settle on the body as carefree relaxation. El Chapo OG is preferred near the end of the day as its effects can become rather sedating with continued use.
