Making Cannabis an Acceptable and Everyday Part of Healing Humanity



The Roots of a Cannabis Revolution

Michael ‘BigMike’ Straumietis forever changed the industry in 1999 when he founded Advanced Nutrients: the first and only complete growing system for cannabis. For the first time ever, growers could rely on hydroponics nutrients designed to help unlock the true genetic potential of their specific crops.

Since then, Advanced Nutrients has remained steadfast in its commitment to developing research-backed products and has introduced 55 firsts to the world of cultivation. Today, the company is the leading provider of cannabis fertilizer for growers in 117+ countries.

A Message From Our Founder

I started cultivating cannabis in 1983, when hydroponics companies shunned outlaw growers who made up the bulk of their business and instead hid behind glossy magazine spreads of fat, red tomatoes. I made a promise to do better by my own crops — and the community — and went to work optimizing the essential plant nutrients cannabis craves. The result is Advanced Nutrients…

When you invest in Advanced Nutrients, you’re investing in science, innovation, and the community. Read more about my path from outlaw grower to cannabis CEO here.

Over time, components within the nutrients settle on the bottom of the bottle. When you pour a bottle without shaking it, you can potentially be pouring out an unbalanced solution. Shaking up the nutrient bottle ensures you are pouring the right blend into your reservoir, giving your crops the nutrition they need.

Usually, it’s not a problem. But some products are incompatible with each other and can damage your plants when they’re used together. For example, bloom boosters with high PK numbers or low-grade silica products can destabilize your nutrient mix and cause nutrient lockout.

Nutrient manufacturers design their products to be used with each other. In doing so, they include specific portions of each nutrient in each product, so crops receive the right nutrition through each stage of the grow cycle. When you stick with one manufacturer, you don’t have to worry about inadvertently destabilizing your nutrient mixture. One example of why you need to stick with only one manufacturer’s products is Advanced Nutrients’ pH Perfect line. These products are designed to keep your crops’ root zone within a specific pH range. When you use them alongside products from another manufacturer, we can’t guarantee your root zone will maintain its optimal pH level.

Advanced Nutrients has spent many thousands of man-hours developing a technology that automatically balances your pH for you — putting it in the “sweet spot” and holding it there for one week.

And the technology is so “smart” that it can account for many of the aforementioned variables in your grow room. Our proprietary pH buffering agents and stabilizing mechanisms became the foundation of a new system aptly called pH Perfect® Technology. Learn all about it here.
