I’m sure that pretty much everyone knows at least a little bit about aloe vera but, for those of you who don’t, it’s a species of succulent plant known for its health and beauty benefits. people have used it for all sorts of things over the years, with its earliest recorded use dating back to ancient Egypt.
The plant itself bears big, green tapered leaves that contain a sort of gel substance – it’s probably helped you heal a burn or two before. But how can it benefit cannabis plants?

To make one of these, simply mix a large heaped table spoon with 4 litres of water and pour it into a spray bottle and, hey presto, you’ve got yourself a foliar spray!
