The globalisation of cannabis cultivation: A growing challenge

Global patterns of cannabis cultivation have followed a fascinating development, from highly concentrated production in certain developing countries to decentralized production in almost every country around the world (UNODC, 2014). Historically, the spread of cannabis cultivation across the globe reflected the industrial utility of hemp; the widespread use of cannabis as a recreational drug did not appear until much later (Abel, 1980, Booth, 2003). It is with the emergence of modern patterns of cannabis use in the developed world that we have seen major changes in patterns of cannabis production. As demand for cannabis increased globally, fuelled by the developments of the “counter-culture” of the 1960s and 1970s, so cultivation in the developing world began to take on new dimensions.

Tantalus Labs, the 'Tesla of Cannibis,' Building Modern Marijuana Greenhouses

Medical cannabis has traditionally been cultivated under a veil, in bunkers and basements. To provide the light necessary for photosynthesis and plant growth in this scenario, artificial lights are used.

But now, with the introduction of federal cultivation licenses in Canada, companies can now optimize for both the plant and the environment. Bunker grows are being replaced by structures that allow for strict environmental control while allowing the penetration of natural sunlight ­ into modern, high-­tech greenhouses.
