Cannabis Cultivation and Science Podcast Episode 12

Our guest this week is not only an awesome grower and passionate gardener, but also a good friend. Jaya Palmer is a biological horticulture consultant with a passion for sustainable human settlement and cognitive liberty. His mission is to excite and inspire people to utilize cannabis as a fulcrum to raise consciousness. Jaya believes we can realize the genetic potential of plants with organic, regenerative methods that focus on feeding and diversifying biology in soil.

I met Jaya back in 2011 literally on the day I was mixing one of my first batches of our KIS Soil. At the time I was running our family business manufacturing compost tea brewing machines. We hit it off pretty quickly, talking about different aspects of growing and since that time, Jaya has been the one coordinating much of our field research and testing and one of my “go to” guys regarding beneficial insects, lighting, product testing, and much more.
