How We Grow

Before we talk about why we grow in purified water, this question must be answered. 

WHY DON’T WE GROW IN SOIL?

The cheapest and easiest way to grow marijuana is in soil. That’s why most growers use it. Outdoor growing is by far the least expensive. Unfortunately, marijuana grown in soil or any other type of medium, whether grown outside or in a greenhouse, is inferior in quality to marijuana grown in purified water. Here are four reasons why.

1) Soil plays host to many nasty little creatures, pests and diseases.

To eliminate these creatures, pests, molds and mildews, resorting to toxic chemicals and pesticides is all but essential. In contrast, growing in purified water is completely sterile. There are no bugs, no nasty little creatures, no molds or mildew. In our purified water grow farm, everything is very hygienic, the perfect environment for both the plants and the gardeners. Visitors tell us that our grow facility looks more like a hospital than a farm. 

2) For a plant to receive a well-balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect balance.

In soil, biological decomposition breaks down organic matter into the basic nutrient nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium salts that plants feed on. Water dissolves these salts and allows uptake by the roots. Rarely, if ever, can you find such ideal conditions in soil due to the lack of organic matter left behind on the surface, contamination and biological imbalances.

3) Soil is incapable of supplying plants with the high volume of nutrients that purified water can. 

Marijuana grown in purified water and induced with the pharmaceutical grade nutrients takes the perfect amount of food directly to the root rather than making plant’s roots look for it. Soil loses its nutritional value and is difficult to measure in terms of pH and fertility. Using purified water, the pH and nutritional value of the water can be measured and maintained, so each plant has the perfect diet.

4) When growing in dirt, or other mediums, only when you water your soil do the basic food elements dissolve so that they can be consumed by the plant.

In a Purified water system, the plants are fed continuously allowing for maximum plant growth and the highest level of plant health.

PURE WATER GROWN CANNABIS

At THC Farms, we start with city water. That City water is purified using the U.S. Filter water purifier. This is not your average water purifier. This water purifier has a price tag of about $85,000.

From our industrial water purifier, the water is pumped into holding tanks. We have two 350 gallon holding tanks where the nutrients get mixed into the purified water, for a total of 700 gallons of nutrient rich water at a time.

While in the holding tanks, this highly purified water has the perfect blend of nutrients added.  These nutrients are pharmaceutical grade.

At each stage of the plants life, different nutrients are critical to maximize the plants growth and health. To facilitate the ever changing nutrient requirement of the plant, the nutrient water in each grow room is changed every two weeks. The plants receive the perfect nutrients at all times.

After the nutrients are induced into highly purified water, they are automatically delivered to our 200 gallon holding tanks in each grow room.

From the holding tanks in each grow room, the purified water carrying the nutrient solution is pumped into grow troughs.  Here the plants receive a continuous supply of the perfect food they need at each stage of their grow life.

Every two weeks, the nutrient water in each grow room is pumped out and new nutrient rich water is added.

Purified water, induced with the perfect amount of nutrients, changed on a regular basis, gives us the ability to consistently produce the highest possible quality of cannabis.
