Last week we found ourselves in Seattle again for the NCIA Cultivation Management Symposium.
While starting a new commercial cannabis cultivation operation may seem daunting at first, there are a few simple actions that you can take to make everything go as smoothly as possible. Ideally, all of these things should be planned out before starting to build the grow, but some aspects can be added in phases if start-up finances are limited.
In cannabis cultivation, as in life, there are two types of stress - good and bad. Good stress causes the cannabis plant to work harder to achieve a desirable goal (larger buds anyone?); whereas, bad stress is counterproductive to growth and could ultimately kill the plant. As such, when growing cannabis in a commercial setting, it is important to maximize the use of good stress and minimize the introduction of bad stress.
