Cannabis Legalization: What it Means for Cultivators

Posted by Celia Daly on Nov 10, 2016 11:29:35 AM

Tuesday marked an incredible moment in history. This election will be remembered as one of the most shocking of all time. Donald Trump is now president elect of the United States of America. But before you start packing your bags and looking around for your passport, remember that now 1 in 5 Americans have access to marijuana. Yes folks, cannabis was the big winner this year with four states (Massachusetts, California, Nevada and Maine) voting to legalize recreational use for adults 21 and older and another four (Florida, North Dakota, Montana and Florida) voting to add or expand medical use. These states together represent about 75 million Americans who now have some type of access to cannabis. With so much uncertainty about what happens now, we can take comfort in one guarantee-- cannabis is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Sustainability for your Indoor Garden

Posted by Celia Daly on Nov 3, 2016 11:02:22 AM

This is an exciting time for Cannabis. An estimated 84 million Americans will be affected by proposed cannabis legislation on the ballot next week. This is significant for the industry, marking a turning point in our country’s relationship with the plant. However, as more and more states come on board, it is inevitable that cultivation operations will begin multiplying at incredible rates. It is important that this innovative industry approach these new opportunities responsibly and in a way that shows the world that we understand and respect the resource constraints we are facing. The good news is that, because the industry is so young, we have the chance to set standards on how we will utilize resources.

There are many positives about growing in an indoor, sealed environment.
