Everyone uses magnesium - plants, animals and we humans. What are the goals of cannabis and the need for magnesium and how to prevent deficiency in this element?

Magnesium is the fourth most important element for the plant after the "big three": nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Magnesium is widely used in cannabis and its deficiency is considered one of the most common drawbacks among marijuana growers due to the fact that there are quite a few elements that may prevent the plant from absorbing the element properly, such as too acidic soil, cold water irrigation or too cold temperature in the root area, moist soil, and so'…

One of the main functions of Magnesium is to build chlorophyll so that the foundation is necessary for the proper photosynthesis process of the plant. It also helps to support healthy arteries, the growth of foliage, and magnesium in general plays an important role in many other metabolic processes.

Magnesium is an important element not only for cannabis, but for every living creature as well: humans, animals or plants. For many years, people have learned to use magnesium for various medical uses, among others they used it to cleanse toxins, heartburn, laxatives and more.
