Nutrients and medicinal cannabis

Medicinal cannabis usually has a fairly short production cycle. This means growers are able to go through 3-4 production cycles a year with smaller plants or do one annual cycle with larger plants. This also means the cannabis plant goes through different stages of growth rather quickly. During the different stages the plants have different needs. Let’s have a look at the nutrient needs of medicinal cannabis plants during the different phases of the plant’s growth cycle.
