The quality, taste, and even potency of your home-grown cannabis can be greatly affected by the condition of the soil or potting medium that you grow it in. This is why it is imperative to ensure that you grow your plants in a soil that is rich in the major nutrients that cannabis needs i.e. nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous. Fortunately, there are many super soils on the market today that are formulated to ensure your success in growing the healthiest cannabis plants regardless of whether you are a beginner or veteran grower.

Most super soils will contain several major ingredients such as worm castings and bat guano for nitrogen, bone meal and chicken manure for potassium and wood ash or compost for phosphorous.
