Benefits of Greenhouse Grown CBD Hemp/Cannabis Flower
Growing cannabis/legal hemp flowers in a greenhouse has a multitude of benefits for both quality and sustainability, as well as being more Eco-friendly. The main apparent points are the consumption of power; growing indoors without any natural light or heat requires 100% power controlled temperature, light, and usually water/feeding systems. Whereas, growing in greenhouses (hoop-houses) allows growers to depend less on powered sources of light, heat & water/feeding, by utilizing sunlight and varying temperature & humidity using simple techniques, using vents to control airflow, etc. Greenhouses also produce a more consistent product than fully outdoor grows.
Greenhouse-grown CBD hemp flower also benefits from a much broader, deeply penetrating spectrum of light, which can improve overall quality, cannabinoid & terpene profile resulting in a better experience overall.
That's not to say that greenhouse-grown hemp flower is 100% void of power usage and hardware. Heating, supplemental lighting, fans & sometimes power controlled ventilation gets used. Quality is absolutely dependent on each grower's knowledge & skill, their style, geographical location, and utilization of growing seasons. In-fact, larger-scale greenhouse farms will have fully automated, and power/computer run systems controlling all aspects of each stage of the grow.
Indoor (not greenhouse indoor) yields are typically smaller than greenhouse-grown hemp flowers. Startup and running costs are usually more expensive, all of which drive the prices up somewhat.
Key benefits to greenhouse & indoor-grown hemp flower:
- Energy Conservation
- Weather and Climate Control
- Lighting Control - Supplemental lighting - sun-grown
- Life Cycle Control
- Soil/grow medium quality and control
- Control over, nutrients, pesticides & other contaminants
Although the benefits of greenhouse-grown seem to eclipse "indoor" & Outdoor-grown hemp flower, it's important to state this isn't always the case. Grower knowledge, skill, setup, and many other factors come into play. Yes, greenhouse-grown is environmentally friendly, sustainable, and for the most part, enjoys higher yields and better quality. Truth be told, bad growers can and will produce the complete opposite. Knowing your growers are masters of their art, with constant testing, innovation, monitoring and sampling, customer feedback, and a drive to always improve, are, without a doubt, the vital drivers to high-quality hemp flowers.
