It was prohibition that sent cannabis production indoors in the first place. Once there, technology took over, applying industrial techniques to warehouse growth. But the anticipated spike in demand post-legalization – and issues of increased energy expense and environmental group pressure – could lure the industry at least partly back into the daylight. This session will look at the benefits of outdoor cultivation, its simpler infrastructure, eco-friendliness, cost-effectiveness and its promise as a measure to boost supply and ward off shortage-driven black marketeering. And it will consider whether greenhouse cultivation is an energy-feasible compromise between indoor and outdoor.
