GROW CANNABIS ACCORDING TO THE PHASES OF THE MOON, DUDE

According to an age-old farming tradition, the phase of the has a huge impact on how well a plant will grow. Without getting too bogged down in the nitty-gritty of astrological signs, here’s the general idea behind gardening according to the moon. The whole idea hinges on the idea that the moon’s gravitational pull affects water in the ground. This is very similar to the way the moon affects the ocean’s changing tides.

According to the tradition, the moon’s pull on groundwater has a direct impact on how well different plants grow. The time between a brand new moon and the is called the waxing phase. The moon gets bigger and bigger every night during this phase.

As the moon gets increasingly large, it pulls water up toward the surface of the Earth. This is the time to plant things that produce fruit or leaves above ground.This would include things like tomatoes, leafy greens, grains, squash, beans, and most important of all, cannabis.

The study “provides solid evidence … that the associations between moon phases and children’s sleep duration/activity behaviors are not meaningful from a public health standpoint,” the researchers, from the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute in Ottawa, Canada, wrote in the March 24 issue of the journal Frontiers in Pediatrics.
