Fun Facts About Cannabis Plants
The cannabis plant is different from most plants in several ways. Besides being visually unique, it is highly sensitive to its environment and to its caretaker. Below are some interesting things that you may not know about the cannabis plant, but once you do, can help improve how you care for it.

1. Did you know that it's been scientifically researched and proven that speaking kindly to plants helps them grow better and keeps them healthier?
In a study, two of the same age, size, and kind of plants were given the exact same conditions for growing, the only difference was the words they were exposed to as they matured. Researchers spoke kindly to one while bombarding the other with negativity. Over time, the plant exposed to kind words was noticeably greener, larger in size, and overall healthier than the plant that was spoken to in an unkind manner.
While this is true for all plants, cannabis plants are highly sensitive and seem especially responsive to positivity. Some of the positive words you can say include:
