On some occasions, with the measures we usually take for the pest management in cannabis plants we do not always achieve the expected results. In these cases we try to use other types of weapons. From MatillaPlant we want to make a list with the organic insecticides and fungicides for cannabis most used. Go for it!
Organic insecticides and fungicides for cannabis
When it comes to treating cannabis cultivation in an ecological way, we have three products that are not very toxic, very effective and that fight a lot of pests. These products are: neem oil, pilgrims and potassium soap. With these three things we avoid the appearance of serious problems in our crop.
The neem oil It contains a high content of azadirachtin. The azadirachtin It is a chemical compound belonging to limonoids which is present in the seeds of Nim tree. It is an insecticide regulating the growth of insects in all its larval states, but without any effect on eggs or adults.
The azadirachtin It acts by contact and ingestion of the insect, altering their hormonal balance. By ingesting the neem oil, insects lose their appetite and stop eating and reproducing in a few hours. They do not die on the spot, but they do after a few days.
In addition to the toxic effect, this oil also acts as a repellent because insects do not like their smell and stay away from fumigated plants. Nowadays it is considered one of the few insecticides allowed in organic farming. An advantage of nim is that it does not affect beneficial insects for plants because they do not feed on it.
This oil penetrates inside of the plants through its roots and is distributed throughout all its tissues, which makes it protected from all the insects that bite or suck its sap. Its effect is more effective against biting insects than against suckers, although if it is spread on the surface of the leaves and branches, greater effectiveness against suckers is achieved. The dose to be applied is 10 to 20 ml per liter of water, although it could vary depending on the product.
For the correct use of neem oil, the best option is use it as a preventive. Fumigating once a week from the birth of the plants, we get extra protection that keeps pests away. Neem oil will cause thrips, aphids, whiteflies or miners to stay away from plants.
Pyrethrins are an insecticide found in different flowering plants such as pyrethrum or pyrethrum. The effect of pyrethrin causes it to die in a short time when ingested. Pyrethrins can be purchased in products such as TEC-FORT 30 ML and fumigate the plant with the product dissolved in water. TEC-FORT is a small insecticide based on pyrethrins that destroy the insects that infect your marijuana plants.
The pyrethrins they are not toxic to mammals but they are pyrethroids, an insecticide derived from the pyrethrin whose effects are much more intense. These pyrethroids they are not allowed in organic farming since they remain much longer on the surface of the plants and harm much more beneficial insects. The usual dose of pyrethrin is approximately 1 to 2 ml per liter of water.
The potassium soap it's a type of soap that does not harm the plants and what is totally ecological. The acids they contain act on insect cells and divide them, causing insects to die quickly.
Insects like white flies, aphids or trips They are very sensitive to this soap, which makes it one of the main ecological solutions to get rid of pests. To make sure the plants are fully protected we need soak both the upper and lower sides of the plants well. Its effect disappears when it rains because the water cleans the soap from the leaves and makes it disappear.
Due to this it is advisable to apply it frequently, avoiding that the plants have at all times. The recommended dose is 10 to 20 ml per liter of water although it may vary depending on the product.
Here is what you want to know before seeing your regional medical dispensary:You will require a physician’s recommendation, medical cannabis certification, and/or whatever proper documentation is needed by your state. Typically, you need to be 18 or older to qualify for a medical authorization, but exceptions could be made in some states for minors with especially debilitating problems. You will usually register with a medicinal dispensary. This is to keep your medical cannabis recommendation or certificate on file for legal and regulatory purposes. There will be a waiting room. This is to control the flow of patients and product, but a simple dividing wall gives patients solitude and direct one-on-one contact using a budtender to candidly discuss medical problems. Many times, but not necessarily, your purchases will be monitored by medical dispensaries. This procedure can assist budtenders and patients track effective medicine in addition to have a living record of manufacturers and products for future reference and follow-up. Medicinal dispensaries usually allow you to smell and analyze the buds prior to buy. This might vary from state-to-state.
Yes, municipal approval is necessary before the AGLC will subject a retail cannabis license. Applicants must get in touch with their planned municipality to find out requirements concerning municipal retail cannabis legislation, zoning requirements, land-use limitations, and place requirements concerning how close a retail shop is into a provincial medical care facility, college, or parcel of property designated as a college book.
