Acti-Vera, a vegan stimulant for growing marijuana plants
For several years now, organic nutrients are the preferred option for many cannabis growers, either for indoor or outdoor crops. This type of nutrients for cannabis provides our buds with better taste and quality and is more environmental friendly than mineral fertilizers (chemical nutrients).
Organic nutrients are products resulting from the flora and fauna that we can find in the animal, plant and also bacterial/mycorrhizal world. Today, and since a few years, there are more and more people who don’t want to use any product derived from animals, which is known as veganism.
This vegan lifestyle has been quickly reflected in the international market of both nutrients and additives for growing cannabis. These products and made from plants (and/or algae) and do not contain any other ingredients of animal origin. We want to highlight that the companies that manufacture these nutrients don’t test their products on animals.
Acti-Vera from Biobizz is a new 100% vegan stimulant for cannabis farming made of the famous plant Aloe Vera, which has several medicinal and cosmetic properties.
Presentation and properties of the Aloe Vera plant
Aloe Vera is a succulent and vivid plant used in medicine since thousands of years ago. In Egypt, one of the oldest documents about medicine – known as the Ebers Papyrus and that dates back to 1500 years before our era – already explains the virtues and uses of both Aloe Vera and cannabis as medicinal plants.
The juice inside the leaves of the Aloe Vera plant contains more than 75 active components (polysaccharides, phenolic compounds, organic acids…) as well as vitamins, amino acids, minerals, enzymes, fitohormones, saponins, salicylic acid… One of the most interesting active principles found in this plant is the so-called aloverosa, which is contained in large amounts in Acti-Vera.
Aloe Vera is primarily used to treat burns thanks to its powerful regenerative and healing properties. In cosmetics, it’s also used against skin aging. If Aloe Vera is so useful for us…why not use it with our marijuana plants?
Biobizz Acti-Vera, organic activator of cannabis plants
It was during a trip in 2011 to the Caribbean island Curaçao – where Aloe Vera is traditionally grown and used – when the BioBizz team had the idea of developing a stimulant for plants based on this plant.
Effect of Acti-Vera on cannabis plants:
- Protection and stimulation of the immune system, enhancing the resistance against bacteria, viruses, yeast and mold
- Stimulation of the plant’s growth and vitality, accelerating cell division and increasing the production of phytoalexins
- Faster germination of seeds
- Increases water and nutrient uptake and carrying to all the parts of the plant
- Improves resistance to environmental stress, in particular to high temperatures
- Enhances assimilation of sugars and root flushing before harvest
