The Destiny Story

The Destiny Grow System™ has its roots in the Kootenays of the Southern Interior of British Columbia where the paths of Destiny’s founders first converged.

The mountain men and women in this region are fiercely independent and deeply committed to the emerging organic movement. Even twenty-five years ago, everything that they grew, from their carrots to their medicine had to be organic. Using chemical based nutrients – then popular with cannabis growers in other regions – was not an option.

Fortunately these outdoor gardeners were able to acquire everything that they needed by using products from a local organic fertilizer manufacturer founded by natural soil management specialists in 1990 to meet the increasing need of organic farmers and discerning gardeners in the area.

As one might expect, soon these organic inputs were used in specialized blends and recipes by the region’s cannabis cultivators to produce the highest quality outdoor cannabis on the Canadian market, with that of the dedicated Kootenay growers being the most legendary of all. Over time, their methods spread across British Columbia as other cultivators discovered the superior results from growing organically with these blends. This commitment to natural, organic production played a central role in the creation of what came to be known as the highly respected public brand “BC Bud.”

Since that time however, the landscape for medicinal cannabis production has changed dramatically as cultivators have moved from outdoor sun-drenched mountainsides to indoor basements and warehouses. In this transition, most growers changed their production models towards synthetic chemical-based nutrient and pesticide systems promoted by the hydroponic industry.

There was however one committed cultivator who refused to give up on the organic model – licensed grower and Destiny co-founder Jamie Morrison. Jamie’s research and development on organic inputs was ongoing for years. By adding and removing inputs with continuous testing, a complete system was perfected that was found to be as effective and easy to use for indoor organic production as it was for outdoor growing.

At the time, Jamie’s recipe for the organic grow system was exclusively used for his own production and that of a small number of close licensed associates. In short order, the exceptional quality of Jamie’s end product – in particular the concentration of terpenes created by the system – had begun to receive a lot of attention, so much so that a jar of the product is now known in local circles as “The Jar of Destiny”. 

As word began to spread that the results of using Jamie’s secret recipes and grow system exceeded the yields and quality of any conventional chemical production system, grower pressure for access began mounting, which inspired Jamie to launch Destiny Grow Systems™.

Jamie’s philosophy in developing the Destiny Grow System™ has simply been to assist nature by providing a complete range of nutrients to the soil ecosystem and deliver a perfectly balanced diet to the plants. It’s essentially a biological approach whereby beneficial microbes and fungi in the soils orchestrate improved nutrient flow through complex symbiotic processes to maximize the supply of essential nutrients to the plants. This increases plant vitality to an optimum level allowing nature to fully manifest the DNA of any cannabis strain. The key has been access to highest quality organic inputs and the formulation over time of the ideal combination and application of the system’s elements through stages of plant growth, whether indoor, outdoor in greenhouse.

Now the Destiny Grow System™, developed and perfected for over 25 years with feedback from hundreds of growers, is available throughout North America.  As the sustainability equation becomes more and more important, the Destiny Grow System™ is revolutionizing indoor medicinal cannabis production – as a simple, cost-effective and worry-free method for cultivating high-yielding, connoisseur-quality cannabis organically.
