Blue Dream, before and after (12 hour between photos)

We currently offer small and large scale treatment and protection against fungal and bacterial disease in cannabis and hemp.
COMING SOON: fully integrated integrated pest management (fungi, insects and viruses)

Commercially grown cannabis is afflicted with many pests and diseases - whether grown indoors, outdoors or hydroponically. Partly, this is due to contemporary grow practices: high-density grows. Partly, it’s due to the fact that cannabis has been overbred for a very long time: humans have been selecting for desirable features such as psychoactive effects and strengths, and the trade-off has been resistance to disease.

In the wild, plants can recruit microbes from the environment around them to become allies in the fight against illness. 11BIOMICS imitates this process by harvesting microbes from the soil biome that cannabis is grown in - we find the microbes than can help support the health of the plant and combat disease. We don’t add any chemicals, we don’t add any microbes foreign to the plant - we take our cues from what the plant would be doing on a mountain side if it were left to grow naturally. 11BIOMICS offers an alternative to pesticides.

There are plenty of pesticides available to fight disease. A lot of them contain abrasive chemicals. Generally speaking, the more effective a chemical pesticide is, the more toxic it is. If it’s good at killing a pathogen, that’s because it’s good at killing everything. Some of them contain microorganisms with general fungicidal properties. Some of them work, some of the time. Some of them work, until they don’t. All of them are generic. That is to say, a treatment for, say, powdery mildew on cannabis that may be based on previous efficacy on tomato plants….or strawberries…..or melons…..or pumpkins…..or a general capacity to inhibit the growth of some fungi.

But powdery mildew is a highly variable individual. Based on prior research, we understand that, yes, some powdery mildews may cross-infect different genera of plants. But the vast majority are highly specific to cannabis, and, actually, many strains prefer certain areas of the country and certain plant cultivars. Our treatment strategies are completely tailored. We work with you, the grower, based on your grown environment, and we work with your plants specifically.

So, we can offer highly specific (no tomato plants, sorry), rigorously scientific (meet our science guy, Siv) and effective strategies for treating diseases in cannabis grows - including powdery mildew. We don’t use any chemicals. In fact, we don’t use anything that doesn’t already live in YOUR soil.

We’ve spent a lot of time in the lab working at the bench to demonstrate our strategy is effective. We even moved to San Francisco for a little while - and they let us work on experimental cannabis clones in the lab (thanks, San Francisco). Take a look at our results and get in touch if you would like to arrange a consultation.

This is a strain of Skywalker. This poor plant was deliberately, experimentally, infected with a gnarly strain of Californian powdery mildew at Day 1. By Day 5, almost half of her leaves were visibly infected with PM. However, we treated her, and she looked much better the next day. By Day 10, the PM was gone and it stayed gone.

Take a look at how well we protected this strain of WhoOdy against the godzilla PM we used with the Skywalker strain in the previous graph. At Day 7, we treated the plant with one of our formulations. One Day 8, we tried to infect the plant with the PM. We tried  really hard . Happily for the plant, she was protected and never developed PM.

Let us tell you a story about the Jabberwocky. Jabberwocky is a very popular strain - she tests pretty high, THC-wise; and she’s a beautiful, leggy plant. But boy, is she ever susceptible to PM. Here, you can see two groups of plants that a commercial grower kindly allowed us access to in order to demonstrate our work. The blue line represents a group of plants that were not treated in any way to mitigate PM. The orange line represents a group of plants we applied our treatment strategy to. For the first 4 days you can see PM on the orange line decreases as we added our potions….then we left the plants alone for a little while, until day 23. At this point, a little more PM had begun to develop (boy, is she good at getting PM) but we worked with her some more and quickly put an end to that.  What’s interesting here is the blue line. At Day 23 the PM was truly awful. Our grower friend was worried about the implications for the rest of the grow. “No problem”, says 11, “We’ll treat those ones too”. So we did, and the PM was all but gone within a few days. Said the grower “I’m blown away. Usually that would take us weeks to get under control”. We’re just doing our job, Ma’am.
