At room temperature, pure water is neither acidic nor basic and has a pH of 7 Your soil or waters pH level will effect the availability of certain nutrients, Extreme pH values decrease the availability of most nutrients.  Low pH reduces the availability of the macro- and secondary nutrients, while high pH reduces the availability of most micronutrients.  Microbial activity may also be reduced or changed.  The optimal pH when growing cannabis is between 5.5 and 6.5, In this range the nutrients your plant needs to thrive are available to their...
