How to Grow Cannabis for the Best End Results
Cannabis sativa is planted widely as its leaves have some chemicals that have effects on the body that are employed for its uses. Cannabis is taken for recreational as well as medicinal purposes and the thin difference there is between these functions is the mode of action of the drug in each case. Cannabis acts on parts of the brain to bring about its recreational functioning, it will act on the right frontal lobe to cause laughter. Cannabis use as a medicinal drug also targets different systems and organs, to treat glaucoma go instance, it targets the intraocular pressure. Owing to these and many more other functions, marijuana deserves to be grown under the best conditions to ensure its continual supply.
Growing marijuana doesn’t just start anywhere, it should begin at selection of female seeds for planting. Female bushes are preferred over the male as their buds are of high chemical content than their counterparts. Marijuana should be grown from feminized seeds only as a mixture of male and female plants does not favor production of plenty leave buds. A mixed ‘gender’ garden of cannabis has a lower produce as the male plants fertilize the female ones leading to deviation of resources from increasing leaf number to production of seeds.
Every plant, cannabis included requires quality soil so as to thrive and produce heavily. Quality soil in this case implies that the soil should have all required nutrients in correct amounts, a deficiency of nitrates would lead to reduced size of leaves for instance so it should be maintained. All plants require light, for marijuana plants to survive they also need to access light in plenty. Photosynthesis is a process that does not occur in absence of light, a plant that does not carry out this process is as good as dead.
Photosynthesis converts readily available carbon dioxide and water to useful glucose for their growth failure to which the plants die.
Marijuana thrives at its optimal temperatures of about 18-26?C during the day and 20-24?C during the night. To grow marijuana in areas that have temperatures that are not in line with its optimal temperature requirements, indoor planting can be practiced so that heaters and air conditioners can be used to regulate the temperature. Air ventilation should also be at optimum where the plant is grown indoors to prevent molding that could be fatal to users of the drug, ventilation is maintained by use of fans in this case. Correct humidity levels are very important to the plant at different stages, it should be reduced greatly during flowering to prevent molding.
