As the art and science of cultivating cannabis have advanced by leaps and bounds over the past decades, more and more weed consumers — particularly medical marijuana patients — have noticed that organically grown herb not only tastes better, but has superior medicinal effects and a better high.
What’s the difference between marijuana grown with chemical nutrients and that which is grown organically? One place to find out is the new True Living Organics by The Rev, which describes itself as “The Ultimate Gujide to Growing All-Natural Marijuana Indoors.” According to The Rev, your existing grow room can be converted to an all-natural, synthetic-free, living, breathing cannabis cultivation space.
Written in an accessible, jargon-free style, the book sifts through the jargon surrounding organic cannabis cultivation and gets straight to the heart of the matter: the living soil. Providing several different ways to create a high-quality growing medium for your plants, True Living Organics makes an excellent handbook for growing organically. In fact, the book features what may well be the most extensive soil and growing medium guide ever published.
With more and more people using cannabis for medicinal reasons, the synthetic grow style that has long been the norm is now being reevaluated, as marijuana consumers look for a healthier, more natural type of weed that can be smoked all day long without worrying about any chemical residue. But The Rev goes even farther than the typical organic grower, and is passionate about creating an all-natural, real, living medium for his cannabis to grow in, using only organics provided by nature.
The book removes the difficulty of switching to the organic growing style by taking the reader through the transition process, first choosing the correct grow lights and utilizing all available grow space, to dealing with pests and creating organic nutrient teas for your plants. The Rev also shares favorite tips and tricks from using an earthworm farm to the best places to buy soil additives.
True Living Organics, in fact, dispenses with the basics of “how to grow pot,” and instead gives readers an education on what cannabis plants really need and the best ways to give it to them. With more than 200 color photos illustrating every topic, this book is not only easy to use, but also attractive to the eye.
As a staff writer for Skunk Magazine, The Rev has become a vocal advocate for his own True Living Organics style of growing. He was once a successful and prolific hydro grower, but saw the light several years ago, and once he sample his first homegrown True Living Organics bud, he never looked back.
