HOW IS CANNABIS GROWN COMMERCIALLY?
The cannabis industry is changing quickly as more states are legalizing the plant’s production and sale. Indoor production must be in an enclosed secure space that provides enough lighting, heat, and ventilation. Cannabis grows rapidly and needs lots of room if a 5-gallon pot is allowed for each plant. Quality soil at the right ph level (between 5.5 and 6.5) is essential. But the greatest expense is energy to ensure good lighting. Excellent cost-cutters are solar energy and the use of collected rainwater.
