Best Soil for Cannabis

As far as soil types, there are a few you can choose from that have different benefits:

Silty soil

Sandy soil 

  • Easy to work, warms quickly, but you’ll need to dig large holes for your plants and add a few things to bind the soil together since it doesn’t hold nutrients well. Sandy soil is particularly helpful in hotter climates

Heavy clay soil

  • drain slowly and don’t hold oxygen well, so they will need to be heavily amended. A few weeks before you plant, dig large holes where you’ll be placing your weed plants and mix in big amounts of compost, manure, worm castings, or other decomposed organic matter. This will provide aeration and drainage, as well as nutrients for the plants.

All these soils alone are great, but when mixed together they’re known as loam which provides the best consistency for your plants to grow. You’ll know your soil is loamy when it’s able to form into a loose ball before breaking apart in chunks.
