Our Story

UMYA (Xhosa); meaning – native hemp plant; cannabis sativa. 

What started as a hobby, quickly became a passion as this plant worked its healing powers on us. The effects of this plant were therapeutic and profound and ultimately lead to the creation of UMYA NUTRIENTS. A Cannabis Inspired Nutrient Company.

Umya Nutrients was founded by brothers Damian & Ryan Stenzel, our humble start to gardening developed into a passion for cultivating cannabis. After using a wide variety of fertilizer products available, we found that the South African market lacked affordable, effective, and easy to use products designed specifically for purpose.  Returning to Damian’s school project on the use of humic and fulvic acids in fertilizer we applied old sample products and achieved our best results yet. 

This was all the inspiration needed to start Umya Nutrients, a cannabis inspired plant nutrient company. We partnered with an expert and long-time fertilizer manufacturer with the mission to Think Different, Be Different and Grow Different. 

We wanted a range of products that would be easy to use and deliver the best results at the most affordable price and thus the “Pot” range was born. With further research and drawing upon available data about plant and crop cultivation, additional products were included to develop a program of solutions for every stage of cultivating a variety of crops including cannabis & hemp. 

From home growers & gardeners to commercial cultivators, farmers, and industry we strive to offer, effective, affordable, sustainable South African products and “high”, quality service.
