Growing cannabis in an indoor growing facility in a controlled environment offers a great deal of stability and control when combined with the right tools and systems, including vertical cannabis growing systems. In order to better understand the necessary components of a commercial cannabis growing system, it is important to understand the variables of cannabis cultivation.
These variables include:
Light (Intensity, Spectrum, Cycle)
Temperature (environment, dome, canopy, environment)
Humidity (RH, dew point)
Airflow (environment, canopy)
CO2 (quality, delivery)
Media (type, volume)
Irrigation (type, frequency, amount, treatment)
Fertigation (type, concentration, schedule, mix)
IPM (Microbes, Viruses, Pest Control)
All of these variables influence the final product sold to consumers and contribute to cost of goods sold (COGS), all of which play a role in each grower's profit margin. In other words, controlling these variables means you have more control over how much money your business makes. Using a vertical cannabis growing system in your operation will help standardize and better control some of these variables when properly designed, installed, and operated.
