When it comes to growing with a light deprivation system, there are many benefits that lighten the leg work and financial burden involved in growing quality cannabis. Here are a few things to consider as you determine if the investment will be worth it for you.
Higher Quality Cannabis at a Lower Price
Growing cannabis under the sun produces an incredible product, but there’s also a laundry list of things that can go wrong, especially if you aren’t growing in the perfect environment. By growing in a greenhouse, you can protect your plants from damaging weather that can decrease THC production, break down terpenes, and cause your buds to mold. Also, in a greenhouse you can control the climate when necessary by using fans, dehumidifiers, and heaters.
When you take away the hazards of growing outdoors and introduce the benefits of indoor climate control, you can create a product of superior quality while saving money on your electric bill.
Multiple Harvests for a Higher Annual Yield
One benefit of growing cannabis indoors is the ability to produce cannabis year round regardless of the weather or natural sunlight. With light deprivation, you have the ability to harvest multiple times in a season, if not year round, depending on your setup. With several harvests in a year, you’ll increase profits from your garden and have the opportunity to run different strains in a given season.
Control of Cannabis Vegetative to Flowering Stage
Having control over when your plants switch from their vegetative to flowering stage offers many benefits:
- If your plants are looking sick, you can take more time getting them healthy before you switch to flowering.
- If you haven’t pruned your garden to your liking, you can hold off on flowering until you’ve caught up.
- Finally, and most importantly, you get to decide when your garden has grown to your satisfaction before you switch to flowering.
Light deprivation is an excellent way to produce quality cannabis at a budget price. It’s also a fun way to explore growing earlier and/or later in the season than you normally could when growing outdoors.
