Cultivating Cannabis

Grown on Pennsylvania soil, the cultivation process for medical marijuana must follow a series of controlled steps in order to produce the highest quality medicinal value ensured by your local dispensaries. Successfully grown cannabis is characterized by good presentation, strong aroma, abundance of cannabinoids and terpenes, and minimal amounts of mold, fungus, and pesticide residue. Complicated by the varying sativa, indica, and hybrid strains, the process must be scrutinized to cater to such variations. Let’s dig in!
