09 Mar Secret Revealed: Cultivating Marijuana with Aloe Vera
We had an opportunity to interview Jorge Cervantes, author of The Cannabis Encyclopedia, and he gave us an insight of his cultivating techniques. Jorge has experimented many tactics and strategies to grow healthy plants, but one ingredient that we’ve been able to obtain from his secret recipe is Aloe Vera powder gel.
Aloe Vera has long known to be among the most beneficial plants we have. What may surprise you is that Aloe Vera is also a fantastic plant to cultivate along with cannabis. Your [cannabis] plantation will give you much better results. Aloe Vera’s secrets have been known to cultivators for hundreds of years, but you will not find much written about it. Now is definitely the time for our generation to start focusing on agriculture, so we can grow the future, it’s time for us to learn why Aloe Vera is so important.
The Origins of Aloe Vera’s Use.
Aloe Vera just may be the oldest plants whose benefits were known to people. The first written mention we have of Aloe Vera being used for its health benefits isn’t just centuries old – it is more than a thousand years old. One of the oldest papers we have about medicine, the Ebers Papyrus, which was discovered in modern Egypt, recommends the use of Aloe Vera for various ailments. The Pharaohs weren’t the only ones that knew about its benefits. Aloe Vera also plays a central part in ancient Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and West Indian history, where it has been used for hundreds of years. What makes Aloe Vera so special? Most of the benefits can be attributed to Acemanna.
Acemanna in Aloe Vera.
Acemanna is a Polysaccharide that is found only in the Aloe Vera plant. Polysaccharides are simply chains of sugar molecules that have different benefits. Acemanna is a Polysaccharide that has been linked to anti-viral properties, gastrointestinal problems, and much more. It even helps the body remove toxins easily.
Why Cannabis Cultivators love Aloe Vera?
Aloe Vera is great for consumers, and if you want to improve your diet so that it has a positive effect on your health, you need to incorporate Aloe Vera in it. However, Aloe Vera has some benefits that will be of interest to cannabis cultivators. Every cultivator knows that cultivation is not easy. Even when you plan for everything, there is always a chance that unexpected weather conditions, or any other factor may end up harming your crop. Aloe Vera is important because it helps the cannabis crop in multiple ways.
Aloe Vera works great when you are cloning cannabis plants. Aloe Vera is very useful in the process due to its saponin content as a “wetting agent.” So once cultivators find the perfect strain, they can easily clone it. If you want to increase root growth, Aloe Vera helps there too, since it contains Salicylic acid.
Salicylic acid is a very special plant compound that is used in the nursery industry as a rooting agent. It even helps the crops grow faster, because it helps with the seed germination process.
Another area where Aloe Vera helps is ensuring that your crop comes to fruition. It helps your cultivation be successful by increasing your crop’s ability to withstand stressful condition. This is very important because once there’s too much stress on a crop, it will die, and nothing can bring it back.
Your crop will also be able to resist yeast, viruses, mold, and bacteria better because Aloe Vera fights these things naturally. It even helps you harvest better, by helping the assimilation of sugars as well as root flushing before harvesting time.
Why Millennials need to focus on Aloe Vera?
Millennials are now old enough to start thinking about the future and planning for it. Agriculture is seeing a huge boom of millennial interest. It is a growing industry that has a stable future – no matter how much technology develops, people will always need to eat [or consume Cannabis]. Millennials need to start growing Aloe Vera along with their Cannabis plants, because it will allow them to grow faster, be healthier, all without any artificial pesticides or chemicals. It’s Completely Organic!
The demand for agriculture will only increase with time because worldwide population keeps going up. People are also looking more positively at Cannabis, and it is being legalized all over the world. Cannabis cultivation and the agriculture industry overall are poised to explode in the coming few years, booming far beyond anything we have seen so far. Huge companies such as Beleave (CSE:BE), Aphria (TSX:APH), Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED), and Emerald Health Botanicals (TSXV:EMH) are hiring numerous agricultural engineers to innovate more potent strains of medical cannabis. Though their employment qualifications are very strenuous, the pay is quite generous once accepted.
It’s also much easier to grow crops now. John Deere and other similar companies are using apps like GrowBuddy, agriculture growth analytics, high-tech green houses, genetic modifiers, and other monitoring devices to collect data about your crops, and they allow you to see everything through an executive dashboard. It’s time to enter the agriculture industry and start growing the future.
