Who is Thumb Genetics?
“Where wellness grows.”
Thumb Genetics is a Class C and Recreational grow, right here in MI! Thumb Genetics uses some really cool growing methods, one of them being aquaponics. Aquaponics is a growing technique that combines two efficient systems: Aquaculture, a process of farming fish such as tilapia, koi, or bluegills, and hydroponics, a method of growing plants without soil. When the two are combined, you can create a nearly closed loop system that produces both plants and fish.
Thumb Genetics utilizes aquaponics which utilizes a hydroponic setup for growing weed, with the addition of fish in the water chamber. This allows them to skip putting liquid nutrients in plants and instead rely on the waste of the fish, a more natural source of nutrients. Some setups have the plants directly above the fish, and some have the two systems separated in different rooms but are attached by an intake pipe and a return pipe, ensuring that the water continuously cycles between the plant roots and the fish tank.
At Thumb Genetics, they are dedicated to growing and producing premium cannabis, that’s both top quality and sustainable. We currently carry some of their unique flower strains in our store! Next time you visit Light’N Up be sure to ask about Thumb Genetics and Aquaponics!
