Like Emilya said, you wanna get it down to 6.3, and let it do it's own adjusting naturally.

I would never add epsom salts uncooked into an active soil grow... the salt would just have to be flushed out later. If you insist on the temporary band-aid that epsom salts can provide for a severe magnesium deficiency, use a 1 tbs/ gal mix and foliar spray it onto the plants using a 6.5pH solution... but never get it in the soil of a growing plant.

Epsom salts provide both magnesium (Mg) and sulfate (SO4, an ester or salt of sulfuric acid) in a gentle form that is easy for Cannabis plants to process – one that does not build up in soil over time. This home remedy is also simple to use, inexpensive and a highly-soluble supplement for organic Cannabis growers. However, Epsom salts are usually only applied to plants that are visibly lacking in magnesium, or strains that are typically magnesium-deficient.
