Green Relief is the company you think of when looking to invest in sustainably grown plants that are not only good for your health, but also to the environment. However, their production isn’t only about producing to sell, which is why we at Cannabis Pages have decided to feature their company today and show what Green Relief is truly made of. Read on and see why this company should be your number one cannabis supplier whether you need marijuana accessories, oil, or dried flower.
Green Relief making all the difference
With so much pollution and unsustainable agriculture going on in the world, harming nature, us, and the animals, sometimes it’s hard to imagine that one company can make all the difference. However, one is enough to set the example for the others to follow. The reason why Green Relief is setting that example is that they are using the aquaponics method. I know this is the first time you’re hearing the term, for me it was the same. But when I researched closely as to what exactly is this method that Green Relief uses, I was astonished, to say the least.
Namely, the guys behind Green Relief have combined the aquaponics method alongside science in order for their medical cannabis not only to be pure and effective, but to also save the nature by using 90% less water, and most importantly without dumping any unclean water into the oceans polluting them further.
What is aquaponics?
Glad you asked. The aquaponic method actually refers to any system that blends conventional aquaculture – the raise of aquatic animals like prawns, fish, snails, crayfish and others, in tanks – together with hydroponics – the cultivation of plants in water – in a symbiotic environment. You see, within the normal aquaculture, the excretions from the water animals that are raised accumulate in the water which leads to increased toxicity. However, in an aquaponic system, the water from the aquaculture is used to feed the hydroponic system where the nitrifying bacterial breaks down the by-products into nitrites and then nitrates that are finally used as nutrients by the plants involved in the system. This way, the plants that are being grown have access to all the nutrients at all times, and the aquaponics ensures no lack of nutrients or any other deficiencies. The same water is then recirculated back into the aquaculture system, but this time completely purified.
By choosing the aquaponic method, Green Relief ensures that their Cannabis gets all the nutrients it needs for growth, because there can be major drawbacks to deficiencies in the plant, thus their dried flowers and oils pack the most beneficial properties on the market.
About Green Relief

Now that you know more about this alternative method of growing plants, it’s time to talk in-depth about the company that makes all the change. Namely, Green Relief is situated in Hamilton, Ontario where this all started. They are a licensed cannabis producer with a license issued by Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). Since the mission of Green Relief is to improve their patients’ lives, they have developed strict testing protocols within the company’s laboratories in order to make sure the cannabis products they sell are completely free of bacteria, mold, infections, any kind of chemicals, microbial infections, as well as other hazardous materials.
However, consistency is what matters, because when looking for a good cannabis provider for your medical needs, you know that you will be using their products for a prolonged period, which is why you need to have excellent-quality products constantly. This is why Green Relief makes sure their batches of cannabis are as consistent as possible delivering the same effectiveness and potency every time.
The company grows only from the tissues of their best plants which are used as stock each time. Their on-site lab enables them to constantly improve and empower even their best clones. However, Green Relief has a long-term plan to invest in further research and development of cannabis for medical professionals, providing them with studies and evidence that will make doctors realize the potency of the plant and educate them more into the benefits of medical cannabis as opposed to the harmful medicaments they prescribe.
In order to do so, Green Relief invests in their Phase II building which will be a 10,000sq ft. a laboratory that will allow scientists and doctors from other universities to further discover and advance the science of medical cannabis.
Sustainable cannabis growth enabled by fish
Growing cannabis with fish may sound fishy, however, trust me when I say it’s the most sustainable, eco-friendly method out there. Namely, Green Relief is the only medical marijuana grower in the world that produces their plants through aquaponics. There is nothing artificial used in the process of production, thus you get the purest form of cannabis. This alternative method allows them to reuse the same water in the process which saves 90% of the water that would normally be used and prevents the need for usage of chemical fertilizers. What’s even better, it produces 10 times the crop yield per acre with the aforementioned reduced quantity of water, when compared to conventional farming.
The quality of the products
Green Relief harvests every two weeks which enables their buyers to get the highest-quality weed, fresh at all times. They have formed a quality assurance team that controls everything that leaves the facility.

Apart from the eco-friendly methods of production, the company’s building is designed to be earth-sheltered and uses LED lights all over that save energy in order not to waste any natural resources. The soil-less form of cannabis production also helps save many natural resources from the environment.
Giving back to the community
Having a high-quality product is not enough for Green Relief, which is why they have decided to supply shelters with organic fish and vegetables to feed the people in need. Namely, the fish they are using for the purpose of growing Cannabis is being donated to these local facilities. This is another feature that makes them a different company when compared to the rest.
