The word mycorrhiza, of Greek origin, defines the symbiosis between a fungus and the roots of a plant. As in many symbiotic relationships, both participants gain benefits. In this relationship, the fungus feeds on sugars (such as carbohydrates) produced by the plants through photosynthesis and, in return, the fungus makes water and nutrients more available in the soil for them. There are two types, each of which works somewhat differently but results in the same benefits which are, improved nutrient uptake, improved drought resistance, protecting plants from harmful pathogens and improving soil structure and retaining carbon.
Ecto mycorrhizal fungi are those fungi that form a beneficial relationship but live in the rhizosphere, these organisms live just outside the root system protecting plants from disease.
Endo mycorrhiza live inside the roots, they help in the absorption of nutrients and water in exchange for sugars which brings many benefits to all plants, including cannabis.
It uses beneficial fungi to help roots develop and improve plant growth.

Healthy soil life consists of a large complex of microorganisms, of which mycorrhizae play an important role.
Endo Mycorrhiza = Root Stimulator
In nature about 85% of the plants are rooted by the root stimulators, these are useful soil fungi that have a symbiosis with the roots of the plant and thus increase the absorption capacity of the roots to 700%.
This makes it much easier for the plants to absorb water and nutrients.
The beneficial fungi around the roots protect them from harmful pathogens.
A healthy soil life consists of a large complex of micro-organisms of which mycorrhizae (root stimulator) play an important role.
Soil life can be seen as a coherent food web underground.
Adding useful soil fungi to the soil in the right quantities will result in more powerful plants that are much more resistant to diseases, pests and drought stress.
Which result in strong, healthy crops with high yields and low demand for fertilizers.
