THE LIVING CANNABIS METHOD
Our growing methods can be accurately described as organic,holistic and regenerative. We are using a living soil product, Sweet Soil, and it is truly alive! Full of beneficial microbes, fungi, mycelium, nematodes, protozoa, worms and everything else you find in a thriving ecosystem. Our amendments and feeding practices are 90 percent directed to feeding the life in the soil and only occasionally using organic and microbe friendly products to tweak the nutrients if a soil report shows a slight deficiency.
The life in the soil essentially mines the nutrients and minerals to make it plant available. We use a five species cover crop in our beds that are harvested every four weeks. We have found that four weeks is the sweet spot for getting the most benefit out of the cover crop without using more nutrients than you get back from it. This is another way to make otherwise less available nutrients more plant or Bio available. Also, the worms go crazy over these delicious cover crops which in turn make worm castings.
Worm castings are a main ingredient in our weekly compost tea. We brew our compost tea from 24-48 hours depending if we want a more microbe or fungal dominant tea for our soil. We add a few key micro ingredients to feed the tea which is then watered into our beds giving our microbial and fungal populations a boost.
Living soil is by no means the easiest way of growing. But in order to align with the values we want our company to represent and the level of product we are looking to provide, we are certain it is the best way to grow in order to align with all of our values!
WHAT IS LIVING SOIL
Living soil is a growing method centred on the microbial life inside the soil. We use living soil for indoor cultivation by taking elements like peat moss and mixing in beneficial microbes, fungi, mycelium, nematodes, protozoa, worms and everything else you find in a thriving ecosystem. The living elements work together to create a healthy environment. The soil becomes its own complex eco-system – nutrient rich for growing cannabis.
