This remedy is very easy for all the organic Cannabis growers because it is an eco-friendly and cheap supplement which you can find and buy easy.

Why do Cannabis plants need magnesium?
The Cannabis plants need magnesium because it helps them to take phosphorous, nitrogen, and sulfur from the soil. If your Cannabis crop has yellow leaves, you definitely should give them magnesium from Epsom salts. Before using any of the supplements you should know the right diagnose of your plants because you do not want to burn the plants with supplements. When you see yellowing leaves with green veins on your crop give a magnesium supplement. Magnesium helps the creation of chlorophyll, which is the most important for the photosynthesis, and you can start with small doses of Epsom salts. The Epsom salts are a crucial key for seed production and germination.
Why is sulfur necessary for weed plants?
The sulfur together with magnesium is multi-vitamin for your plants; the higher level of sulfur will produce more amino acids, enzymes, and vitamins for the crop. The sulfur is the side helper for the production of the chlorophyll, and with sulfur, your garden will always have green, and healthy leaves. This is very important for the long-life plants which are exposed to environmental stress. If you live in the area with the ’hard’ water you must give your plant extra magnesium.
