About Medical Marijuana Strains

Because patients tend to consume marijuana on a regular basis, the quality of the harvest is often critical.  Medical marijuana is often grown organically to prevent the introduction of potential toxins.  There are many ways to grow medical marijuana organically, including:

Plain Dirt

Marijuana, like any other plant, can be grown in soil. This is typically the easiest and cheapest method since you can get all of the supplies at a standard nursery store. You’ll need to pay attention to the soil quality and keep in mind that your yield may not be as high with this method.

Coco Fiber/Rock Wool

You can also grow marijuana in an inert medium. This will require buying coco fiber, which is not usually very expensive but can be difficult to find. It also requires specialized fertilizers. However, it’s about as easy as growing in standard soil, without the bugs and mess, and usually, results in better yields.

Hydroponics

Hydroponics involves growing plants in gravel, without any vegetable matter. You simply pour water and fertilizer directly into the gravel. When you grow plants using hydroponics, you’ll notice that the plant will not grow a large tap root but will produce a large bunch of small white roots that look like hairs.

This can be an excellent method because of the extremely high yields. It is also much cleaner than using soil. However, hydroponics requires quite a bit of up-front investment, since you need troughs, pumps, and reservoirs to keep the plants properly watered and fertilized. You’ll also need to monitor the health of the plants more carefully – keeping an eye on their pH and nutrient levels regularly.

Aeroponics

This technique refers to growing plants in air. The plant is held in a mesh basket, and the roots grow through the mesh and into the air, where they are sprayed with water and fertilizer. This can produce incredible yields. Much like hydroponics, it requires a higher up-front expense to obtain the specialized equipment and more labor to monitor the plants and keep their nutrient and pH levels in the correct range.

Aquaponics

This system is extremely impressive when it works well, but difficult to set up. An aquaponics set up includes fish and plants living together in a symbiotic environment, where the plants cleanse the water that the fish live in while the fish provide the plants with the food they need. A quality aquaponics system, inside a climate-controlled greenhouse, can produce incredibly high-quality plants and fish anywhere, any time of year.

There is an incredibly large amount of effort required to build and maintain a proper aquaponics system. You’ll want to make sure to do your research and reach out to some of the experts on our forum to get started.

Relief When You Need It

You will be growing your own relief, and able to control the quality of the product while keeping your costs low. And, when you purchase your seeds from ILGM, you can be confident that you’ll be getting high-quality seeds that will result in great buds.

Throughout the world, people are turning to marijuana to relieve their symptoms. In some areas, growing marijuana for medical use is entirely legal. Whether you purchase seeds designed for medical use or those high in THC, marijuana’s ability to heal is becoming more understood every day.

Much More Than Joints

Medical marijuana does not have to be smoked to be beneficial. There are many other options for consuming its medicinal benefits. You can bake it into foods, create a cannabis oil, or vaporize it and inhale the vapors. Some even eat the plant raw, similar to hemp. Learn about the numerous methods of preparing your harvest in our blog.

With proper research, growers of medical marijuana can find a method that works well for them. One that provides the many benefits of this naturally occurring medication while avoiding the harmful side effects of many other pharmaceuticals. Check out our medical seed options today.
