Loyal to the Soil! Growing in Organic Living Soil – Apothecare

Apothecare Ann Arbor is a locally owned and operated organic cannabis company & dispensary. They are a team of friendly cannabis and wellness enthusiasts who focus on cultivating high-quality organic cannabis products for the Ann Arbor community and the State of Michigan. As Michigan’s first certified organic cannabis company, they are committed to a sustainable, holistic approach towards cannabis cultivation and sales.

Apothecare in-house products are certified organic by an independent company, and all of their packaging is recyclable or biodegradable. Their cultivation method utilizes both regenerative farming techniques and modern science by combining no-till living soil practices, advanced energy-efficient environmental controls, and LED grow lighting. The organic growing process allows each plant to express its best genetic potential and produce the highest quality trichomes, cannabinoids, and terpenes. Apothecare relies on a healthy, biologically diverse living soil and beneficial insects to feed and nurture their plants, without any reliance on synthetic inputs or fertilizers.

    Very Good Content. i just love to see the everything being sofisticated everytime!!!

  2. Anthony Anderson on May 15, 2022 at 5:51 pm

    Thank you for finding a good company that leans more towards true organics!! Need more like them! Great show again!!

  3. Thermal Meltdown on May 15, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    When you coming to Illinois? You at least have to come to Revolution in Delavan, they are building an entire subdivision out there!

  4. Jake on May 15, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    I love the fact they are using living soil and organics. But as a business aspect I dont see the cost of keeping this system going compared to a hydro set up. Yes you can price inflate because of natural nutrients. But as far as growth and yeild time and harvest I see it taking a huge hit in the profit margin.
    As a living soil grower myself love the taste and flavor of the flower. If it was in a aspect of actually making a business and making money, It would be hydro. Twice the yield in half the time. Kudos for this company not many going!

  5. Comfort_hash on May 15, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    Scynce and soil. Ballin. Hope they make full-melt hash too

  6. Bobby Dazzler on May 15, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    Did you go to csu???

  9. G burns on May 15, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    This video was awesome and hit home for me as im growing indoor and out as organically as possible thats the method that ive bonded too and just smoked my 1st harvest from good genetics and it was the best smoke ever. Super rewarding. Thanks for your time to make this video and what great things that facility is doing.

  10. OGDAVE on May 15, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    Anyway we can get the Video Editor to fix the Music being so loud vs the Voices throughout the video. Thanks! Big ups for all great Editing you do! Just me complaining…Sorry

  11. Okie Tradez on May 15, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    those trimmers that are kept in cold boxes are legit and then the cold dryers.. thats the way to do it!

  12. enopoland on May 15, 2022 at 6:05 pm


  13. Not Me on May 15, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Can we get somebody to do a deeper more in-depth look around this facility, forget the questions about strains and cultivars. The operation is a major concern, I want to know more about their beds, where did they get them they’re racking system and where they got those. How their watering how much their watering how often their watering how they amend their beds what type of natural amendments do they use in their soils all the key questions were left on answered

  14. J&KTRIPLE _G_ on May 15, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    We need more soil pioneers in this world

  15. xXLordWrekXx on May 15, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Why did these ladies act like they invented living soil? Steve Cantwell is like on his 27th cycle. Plenty of people with way more knowledge and experience out there and these ladies aren’t them. Smh and you don’t make your own soil, don’t add your own amendments and y’all want credit for using living soil? 😂😂😂😂😂 Other companies do all the work for you. Shane on your company for claiming organic and don’t know a damn thing about the soil food web. Smh

    great episode !

  19. Jonas 3d2b on May 15, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Great episode as per usual. What struck my attention in this one was their style of combining earth and hydroponics – would be cool if this topic would resurface somehow with a little more depth… Maybe in you’re guys podcast 🤔

  20. nacnate on May 15, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    hopefully more people do living soil and look into composts and decomposing systems

  21. Nuka618 on May 15, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Awesome would love to try this brand one day

  22. Kris S on May 15, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Wow I love this

    God these wet behind the ears “master growers” make me sick lots of which in a lot of these videos have NEVER had to fly under the radar like Mean Gene said the work done by us was the foundation and you carpetbaggers come plant your little flags and claim that we had it easy!! When you risk your very freedom to further the cannabis culture to create new strains and hybrids while having to remain underground to those trailblazers I appreciate all of your sacrifices and struggles so that NOOBS like this can create BS CONTENT!!!

  26. Dave Hansen on May 15, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    God bless I hope to see living soil sweep across America, let’s get back to what nature provides and let the plant reconnect to the microbes and fungi and educate our youth how soil is a living breathing organism itself, one love 🤙🏻

  27. DUECEDANK on May 15, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Ayyye shout-out my city 🏙 ANN ARBOR !!

  30. Aaron T on May 15, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Profit looks slim with organics in the rec world hopefully they last

  31. Jacob Hall on May 15, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Got elitist vibes from this

  32. Malini D. on May 15, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    I got hungry watching them eat 🤣🧁🫖. Honestly, flower grows itself. It’s more what not to do. ☺️

  33. Zionikk on May 15, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    I just got some of their Mac 1 couple weeks ago when I was in Ann Arbor. Nugs were solid. Not my first choice but would buy again for sure. Cool to see their process, thank you! Absolutely love Michigan, actually feels like freedom, cheers from Ohio!

  34. Sly Ry on May 15, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    I just found it Guys! There it is. The Grow spot.

  35. Eman19O on May 15, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Woke BS brewery

  36. Nigel Williams on May 15, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Out of our all your show hosts, this guy is not my favorite. He has this weirdly intense way of speaking in moments that don’t call for it, and he never smiles with people 😀

  37. brett uk on May 15, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    good to see some love for the end product, and not all about money. most legal grows pump out turbo weed, that’s full of salt/ nutrients and flushing solution.
    i can imagine apothecare flowers/ extracts taste smooth as, compared to most largely grown facility stuff.
    great episode

  38. EN1GMA on May 15, 2022 at 6:36 pm


  39. David Flores on May 15, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Live soil 😆 so cool!!

  40. Daymian Hayes on May 15, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Interesting they do not use compost teas. I’ve always thought teas were a waste of time and energy, top dressing is where its at.

  41. Jerome Damian on May 15, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    The future of canabis business needs more people that represent the future , In renewable interest.

    Clean in, clean out. Organic is the only way to grow.

  44. Jakeovish on May 15, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Bought strains from them twice and both had seeds.

  45. Bike Throttle on May 15, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Where’s Nate?

  46. Wm. J. Remski on May 15, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    This place has the ital ganja. Never a hassle, good music, nice display of pipes, really good prices if you’re poor like me. The people are all very cool, and it’s the closest place to me. Love seeing behind the scenes.

  47. Sgt. Rock on May 15, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Whelp, time to go check out the quest website.
