More Light Requires More Nutrients

Posted by Celia Daly on Feb 11, 2016 7:52:23 AM

Plants need four essential things to grow: light, water, carbon dioxide (from the air) and nutrients. Each of these things work together to promote vigorous growth and increase yield. The catalyst motivating everything is the amount of light a plant receives. Energy from light is captured by the plant and used to process the carbon, nutrients and water. When plants receive more light, they need more of the other three elements and when they receive less light, they need less of the other three elements as well.

After all, conventional pharmaceuticals are produced under strict clean room conditions, leaving little doubt regarding the quality of the medicine received. Cannabis should be no different. In order to protect patients, and meet a growing demand, quality control needs to be a top concern for growers, investors, and the end user.
