The Benefits of Sun-Grown Cannabis
Growers, farmers, and cultivators can prosper more (and help the environment) if cannabis is grown outdoors sustainably.
Imagine walking in a field of flowers… but cannabis flowers. Sure sounds like heaven, doesn’t it? These cannabis flower fields do exist but in secret locations around the world. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ve already been to one.
From a business, health, and environmental standpoint, sun grown cannabis has significantly more benefits than indoor cannabis. In fact, outdoor grows have been practiced by humankind since ancient times. Back then, hydroponic systems, LED lights, and air regulators didn’t exist. Cannabis thrived in the great outdoors, in tropical countries, in mountainous regions. The sad truth is that because of federal prohibition, outdoor grows today are hard to find and even more difficult to operate.
These are the reasons why sun-grown cannabis is so important and beneficial:
As if that weren’t enough, each of these light bulbs contain around 20mg of mercury, which has been linked to serious environmental and health issues.Mercury can also cause detrimental health problems for humans as well as animals. Sustainable lighting options are available, however, nothing can compare to actually giving your plants the light they need through sun exposure.
Farmers and growers know that sun-grown cannabis is ecologically superior. Growing the plant outdoors will give you a much better, high quality product since it’s grown under the sun’s full spectrum of rays, giving you a more complex plant. While many dispensaries already receive high-quality sun-grown cannabis products, as a consumer you have no idea if you’re consuming weed that has been grown indoors or outdoors. The challenge here is for cultivators who want to educate consumers through proper branding so that everyone will be able to tell the difference when it comes to the taste and overall quality of outdoor cannabis.
Even the most carefully cultivated indoor plants will never be able to compare to healthy cannabis plants that have been grown outdoors, when you look at both the size and yield. Outdoor plants that are well-tended to, and have been given everything that they need to grow optimally, will be able to give you up to 4 times more usable product than an indoor plant of the same size. Outdoor cannabis grows also do have a longer growth cycle but this is the reason why it has a much higher yield. The longer growth cycle also plays an important role in the development of trichomes, cannabinoids, terpenes, an overall potency.
Any other plant can become more resistant to threats in the environment over time. Sun-grown cannabis will eventually interact with environmental elements in order to develop resilience against pests as well as changes in temperature.
No matter how expensive or complex an artificial lighting system you use, it will never be able to mimic the power of the sun. When grown outdoors, cannabis also interacts with the moon and this full spectrum of light and energy in its natural cycle helps it develop a higher concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes.
