Quick summary of marijuana cultivation fundamentals
- Cannabis is a warm-season annual, meaning it grows and dies every year and needs to be replanted the following year. It thrives in temperate settings like Northern California’s renowned Emerald Triangle.
- Depending on the method you select and how big you want the plants to grow, it will take between 10 and 32 weeks to create a weed plant.
- You must choose whether you want to grow indoors or outdoors before you begin (more below). Depending on the area, tools, and resources you have, you can grow weed in pretty much any place.
- The magic happens when weed plants begin to blossom and develop buds. Approximately two months before harvest, plants go through this stage.
Cannabis businesses are working hard to satisfy consumer demand now that hemp is legal and full marijuana legalization is just around the way. But one key issue with cannabis farming is sustainability. Cannabis uses a lot of resources and worsens the environmental catastrophe we already have. Growers are setting the standard for better sustainable cannabis techniques to address this issue.
