When it comes to growing Cannabis simple things like water and the PH are very important. Cannabis grows better in a slightly acidic environment around 6.5. To lower our Ph we are using peat granules in a sock with a low flow pump. As a test I was able to lower my 5 gallon pail of water from a neutral Ph of 7 to 6.0 in about 45 minutes.
The benefits of using Peat are even more attractive one you learn that Peat releases essential nutrients as well as Humic Acid.
Humic acids are extremely important as a medium for transporting nutrients from the soil to the plant because they can hold onto ionized nutrients, preventing them from leaching away.
Humic acids are also attracted to the depletion zone of the plant root. When they arrive at the roots, they bring along water and nutrients the plant needs.
