As the legal propagation of cannabis expands across the country, marijuana growers are seeing more and more greenhouse facilities go up to meet the market demand for commercial cannabis. But why are commercial growers choosing greenhouses over indoor warehouse conditions?
- Workplace Quality: Why be stuck in a building all day when you could be in a space with natural light and the possibility of a cool summer breeze blowing on your back? Growers can put in long hours and being in a warehouse space without windows for so much of your time can make it feel like you are working at factory rather than running cannabis farm. Greenhouses can benefit not just the bottom line, but also the satisfaction of your cannabis growing team.
- Better Flavored Product: Leave it to the experience of Dutch growers to persuade you that cannabis grown in natural light or, “blessed by the sun” in their words, has better flavor than cannabis grown indoors.
- It is Green Growing: Cannabis cultivation is getting a bad rap as a crop with ridiculously high environmental costs due to the intensity of necessary inputs from lighting, ventilation systems and water use. Greenhouse systems are most certainly a less energy intensive way to grow marijuana. A greener product is something many consumers are likely to demand in the future as cannabis’s dirty growing secrets come to light.
Greenhouse growing still offers cannabis growers control over important factors like soil nutrients, day length, temperature and humidity. In fact, greenhouses can even be customized to your commercial cannabis operation.
