There is nothing quite like getting a really good bag, the kind you know is going to leave you in the throes of jubilance after just a few tokes. Yet, have you ever wondered: Where did this weed come from? How was it grown? What exactly is inside of this magical plant? What am I actually putting inside of my body?
There is more to smoking weed than general dankness and potency. What makes some marijuana different than others is how it’s grown. When it comes to putting something inside of your body, it’s important that the substances you’re choosing are actually good for your health. It’s not just “hip” to care about your bodies, guys. It’s literally the difference between longevity and disease. It’s time to put health first in all aspects of life.
What is wrong with non-organic?
It may not immediately be apparent when you’re indulging in your favorite strains, but those ‘super chemicals’ and ‘specialized plant foods’ do carry chemicals and toxins. These toxins are in no way natural and are not supposed to be funneled through our bodies. Do you find it appealing to inhale a seriously intense chemical used to eradicate large quantities of insects? Do you want to breath in something that is so poisonous, it wipes out flocks of organisms en masse? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Metals and Salts
Non-organically grown plants are laden with heavy metals and salts. As a result, this has a drastically negative impact on the plant’s entire makeup. Water soluble nitrogen, any water that leaves the pot of a growing plant, is still nutrient-laden. As water leaves your pots, it takes along with it the metals and salts to its final point of drainage rivers, lakes, or the world’s oceans.
Meaning that these harmful toxins are being pushed back into the origins of the growing environment, turning the pollution of plants and produce into a vicious cycle of harm both to humans and to the earth.
Though we can’t taste many of these underscored negative effects when we consume non-organic marijuana, there are negative effects that are taking place behind the scenes. By using salts and metals in the growing marijuana plants, it mixes with the rainwater, polluting the groundwater. This damages in the local environment, polluting rivers, lakes, and oceans.
Benefits Of Organic Marijuana
Organic vegetables are sometimes twice the price of non organic vegetables. Are the benefits worth it? I guess that depends on who you ask. When you look at the benefits of organic marijuana, it will seem pretty surprising that it’s not widely popular.
Better Potency, Taste and Flavor
When you force feed the plants with crappy soils filled with harmful toxins, it’s never good for the overall taste of the finished product. When you let your marijuana grow naturally, it will grow the way that it is naturally inclined to grown the way it’s been growing for thousands of years. And we all should know better than to mess with Mother Nature. Like any plant, marijuana has complex requirements in order for it to grow optimally. When your focus is mass production, you’re tampering with nature’s complicated methods by adding chemicals.
Nature is a complicated lady and it is impossible to match her awe perfectly. If you mess with the way a plant naturally grows, you can bet your behind that fall short of it’s full potential.
Organic plants are left to their own devices and are therefore optimized for flavor and aroma. Mother Nature makes tastier goodies. Organic cannabis produces the perfect amount of terpenes, terpenoids and cannabinoids:the aromatic combinations that give cannabis its smell. cannabis owes its sweet or citrus aroma to the dozens of these compounds present within its stems and leaves.
Put simply, the more terpenoids and terpenes there are, the better the marijuana will smell and the more flavor the final product will have.

Safer To Consume
Since marijuana has been legalized in several states across the USA, it’s becoming more common to rely on pesticides when growing cannabis. These pesticides are meant to yield more crops and keep away hazardous animals and weeds. However, many growers are using dangerous pesticides for the sake of profit. Like any other agricultural industry, growers sacrifices time and money for quality and safety.
When you inhale nonorganic cannabis, you’re inhaling more than THC and other cannabinoids;.you’re inhaling chemicals and other dangerous neurotoxins. By not adding chemicals, organic marijuana keeps your health risks low, allowing you to reap all the benefits of cannabis without all of the added risks.
Better For The Environment
When you produce organic nutrients, it requires less processing compared to the more damaging alternatives. When you grow organic marijuana, you don’t have to throw away or remove the remaining pesticides or chemicals left behind.
Just like the food soil web described earlier, growing marijuana organically involves natural composts that can be left as is. If you allow for a natural cycle, the cycle of life will thrive independently.
Organic growth is sustainable, as it produces crops while also establishing an ecological balance to prevent soil fertility or pest problems. There is no need for heavy bug eradication because the habitat will naturally take these problems into account.
When we allow Mother Nature take control, it allows for the biodiversity in the area to remain unaffected. Therefore, the results are optimal and the product is the best it can be. When humans stay out of the growing process we are able to see the natural genetics intended for the cannabis to look, taste, and smell, all while ensuring a more healthy and sustainable habitat. Instead of manipulating the process ourselves, when we let the microorganisms run the show, the plant can grow the way it’s supposed to.
Best of all? Organic is consistent. You’ll never look at organic marijuana and wonder, “What did the grower put in this? Are there hidden toxins I may not know about?”, You never have to wonder because you know that it’s all natural. As a result, all users can enjoy the strong effects of their unhindered product.
