Hemp growers are relying on CharGrow’s soil amendments to restore the biology in their soil. Based on the soil food web approach, soil scientist and CharGrow co-founder Jon Nilsson has created soil amendment products that build the fertility of soils and put life back into the ground.
Two products being used by hemp growers are BioGranules™ and BioChar Source™.
BioGranules™ is a concentrated biological soil inoculant used at the time of seeding or transplant to put a host of beneficial microorganisms and microbial foods next to roots of a germinating or young cannabis plant. This early point of contact with the roots has a tremendous and long-lasting positive effect on the hemp plant, improving root growth, nutrient cycling, overall plant health and disease resistance.

BioChar Source™ is a biochar-based soil amendment consisting of a blend of softwood biochar, organic compost, organic worm castings, paramagnetic rock dust/mineral powders and mycorrhizal fungi. Included at 50% of the total blend, the proportion of biochar in the product will help to permanently build the vitality of the soil, provide safe harbor for soil microbes, increase water holding and nutrient holding capacity, reduce soil compaction, and adsorb chemicals in the soil–along with a long list of other benefits of using biochar in soil.
For hemp growers prepared to inoculate pure biochar themselves, CharGrow also sells BioChar Prime™, a premium softwood biochar that is USDA Certified 100% Biobased and sourced from sustainable forestry management practices. While biochar is an incredible material that can offer tremendous benefits, we can’t stress strongly enough that applying it incorrectly can have near-term adverse effect. Especially in the case of a high value crops like cannabis, getting a DIY formulation wrong could have huge financial consequences.
