Vermiculture in Boutique Hemp Farming

Vermiculture is the secret practice for producing large happy hemp flowers.

Vermiculture is the practice of introducing worms to consume decaying organic material and then flush it out of their system in what is referred to as ‘castings’ or ‘worm manure.’ The worm castings are nutrient rich.

According to Rhonda Sherman of North Carolina State University, “…nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and manganese. The nutrient content was much higher in the vermicomposts for most elements except magnesium (a magnesium sulphate can be used to rectify this deficiency). The researchers noted that many of the nutrients in waste materials (including nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium), when processed by earthworms, are changed into forms more readily taken up by plants.”

More easily processed nutrients produce hemp flowers with higher levels of cannabinoids and terpenes.

The best way to produce a high-yielding cannabis flower is by not stressing it, so vermiculture is a great place to begin in taking measures to reduce stress.

The worms also naturally cleanse the soil.

Worm castings contain microbes that protect plants from many diseases. Unlike chemical fertilizers, vermiculture compost has no undesirable smells. It smells like rich soil. Worm casting compost is used not only during the planting stage, with a handful tossed into the recess, but also the growing stage and during the flowering stage.

If you are interested in a supply of vermicompost, from a group of veterans, for your upcoming cannabis season, contact gaumedup@gmail.com. Delivery of large loads available in some areas.

Have a great day!
