Best Practices for Commercial Cannabis Propagation

The establishment of optimal planting stock in cannabis enables the continuous developmental momentum of the crop, from propagation to harvest. Although it may be preferable for cultivators to outsource propagation to specialist nurseries in some cases, many commercial facilities prefer to retain critical cultivation processes in-house. Fortunately, cannabis is easy to propagate through seed germination, or asexually through cloning or liner production.


How To Battle Animal & Mold Infestations in Outdoor Cannabis Grows

All outdoor cannabis crops have the potential to be destroyed by one or two of the various problems lurking in the wilderness, unlike indoor growing where plants are protected. In checking on the crop, make sure to keep an eye on the little details that will spell trouble later. There are a few different things to look for:


How are CBD goods made? Behind the scenes of manufacturing & processing

CBD is somewhat magical in more ways than just its natural, wide-ranging therapeutic effects. If you think about it – it’s pretty extraordinary that a seemingly unsuspecting plant gets transformed into beneficial oils, and other types of goods. So, what happens on this magical journey of a cannabis hemp plant, getting extracted and processed into the goods we know and love?

Knowing how your products are made from start to finish, can help you better understand price points, and appreciate the true labor and love behind each bottle you enjoy. So, let’s find out more about the manufacturing process it takes to produce the varied consistencies and textures of the most popular CBD products.


How You Can Use Data to Sustainably Scale your Greenhouse Production

It is no secret that the greenhouse produce industry is booming. With limited land, water, and labor, the global commercial greenhouse market pushed sales to $27.24 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $61.88 billion by 2027. However, the expensive set up costs and the lack of awareness, especially when it comes to data, are hampering market growth.


How to Cut Costs and Make Your Cannabis Extraction Operation More Efficient

For cannabis extraction companies, becoming more efficient and more productive goes hand in hand with expansion and scaling up. Marijuana extraction firms looking to cut costs and boost efficiencies can do so in several ways, including:

  • Adding automated solutions to extraction equipment.
  • Sourcing high-quality starting material.
  • Designing the facility to streamline the process and improve workflow.


Automating certain parts of the extraction process can dramatically reduce labor costs and increase throughput time.


Two South African students develop high-tech cannabis growing technique

With the laws about cannabis use and sale continuing to change, two South African students are busy finding new and more efficient ways to grow the controversial plant.


In South Africa, cannabis can still not be cultivated or sold commercially. There is a lot of hope for a future cannabis industry to become transformative.


There are many examples worldwide of countries that have legalised commercial growth and sale of cannabis. This based on the number of jobs and money it has injected into their respective economies.


Optimizing Systems for Cannabis Greenhouses

All cannabis greenhouses take advantage of sunlight for plant growth, but building construction and climate control strategies can vary so much that some growers say that “if you visit one greenhouse, you have visited one greenhouse.” To optimize building systems for peak productivity, consider managing infiltration through building envelopes so cannabis can be sun-grown while photosynthesis can be optimized with active climate controls.


What’s the best grow room temperature and humidity level?

Successfully growing cannabis requires specific tools, tactics, and techniques. Knowing the best grow room temperature is a good start.

Ideal grow room temperature and humidity varies depending on the stage of plant life. Cloning requires higher temperature and humidity than vegetative growth and flowering plants have different ideal atmospheric conditions as well. In order to master the art of marijuana growing, dialing in the proper environment at the right time remains the most essential ingredient for success. So, what is the best grow room temperature and humidity level?

How Automated Batching Makes Processing Cannabis Simple

Working in cannabis processing is stepping foot into a young, blossoming industry. No matter how much flower your company goes through in processing, automated batching will ultimately improve net value. Before choosing automation, a company can struggle with time management and precision when doing every step by hand.

Automated batching cuts time, makes measurements precise every time, reduces product loss, and increases quality. All these things combined will pay for the automated instrument.


The Importance of Environmental Control When Growing Cannabis

When the team at East Coast Cultivation set out to build its new indoor grow operation in Rhode Island, it knew it had to nail one thing: environmental controls.

“The key factor in having a successful grow is controlling your environment,” said East Coast Cultivation CEO and co-founder Joe Welch. “Once you lose control of your environment, the serious crop-crushing issues begin to take hold.”
