THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER VENTILATION FOR INDOOR CANNABIS CULTIVATION

According to the  “U.S. Cannabis Market Size, Share & Growth Report”

by Grand View Research, the U.S. cannabis market was valued at $13.2 billion in 2022 and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 14.2% from 2023 to 2030.

In the United States, cannabis is widely used in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food, and beverage industries. It is also recognized as effective for treating various chronic conditions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its use in pharmaceutical products for treating seizures and chemotherapy-induced side effects.

Moreover, in December 2020, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation to remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, and this further “liberalization” is expected to create significant market growth opportunities in the coming years (source: Grand View Research).

The Growing Popularity of Indoor Cannabis Cultivation

Indoor cannabis cultivation is gaining popularity due to the ability to provide plants with a controlled environment for optimal growth. However, achieving a healthy and high-quality harvest requires understanding and properly managing the key factors influencing indoor growth. Throughout the cannabis growth cycle, it is crucial to provide suitable environmental conditions for each specific phase; for example, the flowering phase requires a specific light photoperiod to develop flowers.

Among these factors, VENTILATION plays a crucial role in controlling temperature and humidity to ensure a stable and ideal environment for cultivation and to achieve a high-quality cannabis harvest.

Key Factors for Indoor Cannabis Cultivation

Lighting: Light is one of the most important factors for cannabis plant growth. In grow rooms, plants cannot benefit from natural sunlight, so it is essential to provide adequate lighting. LED lamps are commonly used because they offer a wide spectrum of light, ideal for photosynthesis and proper plant development during different growth phases.

Temperature: Cannabis thrives within a specific temperature range. During the day, the ideal temperature should be between 20°C and 30°C, while at night it can be slightly cooler. Maintaining a stable and consistent temperature is crucial to avoid stressing the plants and promoting healthy growth.

Good ventilation promotes adequate air exchange, helping to dissipate the heat buildup from lamps and climate control systems. This helps maintain a constant and optimal temperature for plant growth, avoiding heat spikes that could damage them.

Humidity: Air humidity is another critical aspect of indoor cannabis cultivation. During the germination phase and early growth stages, humidity should be maintained around 70-80%. As the plants grow, humidity can be gradually reduced, reaching 40-50% during the flowering phase.

Proper VENTILATION helps prevent excessive humidity inside the grow room. As cannabis plants grow, they begin to produce and release water, which must be removed from the grow room to avoid becoming excessive.

Good air circulation helps reduce humidity levels, preventing mold and root rot, common problems in high-humidity environments.

CO2 Supply: CO2 is essential for plant photosynthesis, and proper ventilation ensures that plants receive the necessary amount.

Odor Reduction: Ventilation helps reduce unpleasant odors produced by cannabis during the flowering phase. Well-designed ventilation systems can help control the spread of these odors outside the cultivation environment.

ELITURBO: The Ideal Solution for Indoor Cultivation

The ELITURBO range is the ideal solution for this type of cultivation, providing maximized and high-quality yields while saving on energy costs.

ELITURBO produces a long horizontal air throw (up to 10 meters) and, thanks to the alternating rotation directions of the special patented impeller, ensures significant air recirculation and horizontal distribution of heat and humidity throughout the environment without needing air transport ducts.
