Good Weed was started with one goal in mind: make good weed. So what does that mean to you? Maybe, to you, “good weed” means more potency, more medicinal. To some, it’s the aroma, taste, texture, or color. For others, it is the effects it has to offer. Euphoric or creative. Energetic or sedative. The words used to describe the subjectivity of what exactly “good weed” is to a person are as diverse as the strains of marijuana you are attempting to decode. To us, “good weed” is all of those things and more. It is potent. It is aromatic. And, most importantly, it is clean.
In order to get the best cannabis, first and foremost, you need to grow healthy plants. To provide the cleanest medicine, you need to start with the cleanest ingredients. In our search for the most organic nutrients, we discovered an age-old method of growing far more efficient and sustainable than conventional farming. No-till farming uses a fraction of the water that hydroponics uses, and no chemical fertilizers or pesticides that contribute to water pollution.
No-till, in short, is a permaculture-based method of growing that depends on principals of the soil food web like Diversity and Balance of soil organisms and microorganisms. Once the soil system is built, it is left largely undisturbed by human hands. It relies heavily on biological properties and ecological practices. No-till is more efficient in creating conditions favorable to all strains of cannabis, which, for commercial grows can often be between 20 to 50 varieties, all requiring a slightly different nutrient regimen.
Because of the law of the minimum, a plant can only grow to its fullest potential by being supplied proper nutrients and growing conditions (light, temperature, humidity). By growing no-till, the grower becomes a constant builder of soil, assuming all condition requirements are met. By building a soil with the perfect amount of minerals, nutrients, and organic matter, the fundamentals of nature are allowed to supply the plant with the perfect amount of everything it needs — at all times. When done correctly, the garden shows no nutrient deficiencies, nor toxicities. Because of this, each and every cannabis plant is allowed to achieve its fullest genetic potential. This is often expressed by higher cannabinoid levels — THC, CBD, CBN — higher terpene levels, and, because of the lack of chemicals involved, no risk of pesticide or herbicide residue. There is no salty buildup, no need to flush, and best of all, no need to till.
As a student of no-till, the gardener becomes a student of the billion-year-old evolutionary process of recycling natural nutrients through organic modes of nutrient delivery and symbiosis. By utilizing old world (I think should be capitalized, if he’s referring to the Old World) concepts of a cover crop and companion plants, the gardener’s appreciation for diversity is greatly enhanced. Often times, no-till growers will find themselves observing, in awe, the laws of nature that are already in place, at work. A true gardener cares for multiple species of plants, favoring ones over others, but all having their place. And when your harvest is through, almost everything that was taken from the soil, is returned to the soil, being broken down by the same microorganisms that helped to create it (don’t worry, we keep the flowers)
There are over 60 cannabinoids in marijuana and hundreds of terpenes, all having unique medicinal effects. Because marijuana is only recently out of prohibition, scientific research and publications on the implications of these compounds is largely unknown. Testing labs available to the industry today only test a fraction of these, and current research only shows the medicinal value of handful of them. It is because of this, we decided to grow our cannabis as nature intended. Rather than a force-fed slurry of chemicals, no-till provides a perfect amount of proper nutrients to achieve superior results. When buying your medicine from Good Weed, rest assured knowing it was grown responsibly, sustainably, and clean.
