WHAT IS LOW STRESS TRAINING (LST)?
Low stress training involves the bending of young and supple stems downwards and away from the middle of the cannabis plant, causing them to grow flatter and wider.
LST involves the process of bending the tallest stems down as the plant grows, allowing all bud sights maximum exposure to light from above. Bent wire hooks or plant-ties can be used to pin or secure the stems into place.
This method of plant training is considered ‘low stress’, as the plant is manipulated gently as it grows without causing sudden damage or disruption to her.
