How to Grow Mass Scale Hemp in a Light Deprivation Greenhouse

The mainstream cannabis cultivation has taken over the hemp industry by storm, especially after many countries legalized weed. Hundreds of hemp cultivators now have greenhouses in their garden where they grow high-quality cannabis that they sell in local markets. But, when it comes to mass-scale production, one of the techniques that work wonders is the light deprivation method. Wondering how the flowers will grow without light? Here’s how the system works.

Hemp Cultivation Using Light Deprivation Technique

One of the advantages of the light deprivation method is it allows the farmer to alter the lighting schedules of the plant. This helps to force the plants into making buds as soon as possible. With the growing demand for hemp in various countries, the light deprivation method comes as a boon to meet such high requirements.

Multiple Harvests In One Year

Imagine yielding four to five harvests in a greenhouse within one year. That’s only possible if you follow the light deprivation method. You should also use a high-quality greenhouse, like the ones manufactured by Full Bloom Light Dep. These come with auto-light facilities so that you can change the lighting conditions and improve the speed at which the plants grow.

If you start sowing seeds in early May, your first harvest will be ready by the end of July. That’s the spring to mid-summer harvest that many farmers consider the best time to grow cannabis. However, you can sneak in another harvest between mid-summer and autumn. Sow seeds immediately after the first harvest and collect the yield by the end of October. This period is also known as natural harvest time.

Better Bud Quality

Compared to commercial hemp farmers growing cannabis outdoors, the bud quality of the hemp growing inside a light deprived greenhouse is far better. If you have multiple light dep. greenhouses, you can increase the yield significantly. This will help to produce better quality buds than the ones you find outdoors. Farmers who grow hemp outdoors can only get one harvest. But, you can manage to get up to five using the light dep. method. It not only increases the overall production but also ensure high-quality bud.

Reduces Catastrophic Failures

Every farmer has a fear at the back of their mind that maybe their crops will experience a catastrophic failure due to bug infestation or heatwave. While this is not impossible, you still have another harvest that can make up for a considerable loss. That is why multiple harvests are better than one. And, that is another reason why the light dep method in a greenhouse is the ideal way to grow mass-scale hemp. When you spread your harvest outdoors, you can’t control catastrophes like heatwaves and extreme rainfall.

So, if you are planning to expand your hemp production, don’t fiddle around with other techniques. Follow the light dep. method religiously, and you should see a satisfactory yield at the end of July and October. But, make sure you grow inside a high-quality greenhouse that supports light dep. technique.

5 Myths about Growing Cannabis in a Greenhouse

Many countries are legalizing cannabis lately. This has increased the commercial value of cannabis, and more farmers are enthusiastic about growing it on a large scale. But, many people who have a shortage of space are growing cannabis in their gardens and backyard. Some of them even want to grow in their greenhouses, but they fear it will affect the growth and quality of their crop. Well, it will not. There are lots of myths about growing cannabis in greenhouses, and today you’ll learn the truth behind them.

1. Light deprivation helps cannabis growth better

If someone told you this, they have no idea about greenhouses and cannabis. Light deprivation means you are stopping natural light from entering the greenhouse using a blackout curtain. While it may work for a few plants, it is certainly not helpful for cannabis. On the contrary, you should arrange for lights even at night. Compare some of the best led grow light sets before installing one in our greenhouse. You can attach them horizontally or vertically for faster growth.

2. Specific greenhouse designs that help cannabis growth

This is a common misconception among many farmers. Whether it is a high-tech greenhouse or a regular greenhouse, if you take care of the plants, they will grow as they should. You need to focus on the growing technique and not the design of the greenhouse.

3. Light can substitute heat in the greenhouse

Many people think that the lights inside the greenhouse generate enough heat to support cannabis growth. No, they don’t. The lights are substitutes for sunlight, but they don’t have enough warmth to replace the heating effect that the sun offers. The 12 hours at night should get sufficient heat if you want quick and healthy growth. Ideally, the greenhouse must have a heater, especially if the conditions are cold outside. With an optimum temperature inside the greenhouse, your produce will experience faster growth.

4. Greenhouses are expensive than a warehouse

The cost to build or purchase a greenhouse is significantly less than growing cannabis in a warehouse. Building a warehouse involves a lot of operational costs, labor costs, and maintenance costs. Plus, you need to find a suitable plot that also adds to the total expense. On the other hand, you can install a greenhouse in your backyard or garden. Those who have spacious gardens are utilizing the space efficiently by developing a greenhouse. You don’t have to think of so many expenses upfront.

5. Expect high ROI if you have a cannabis greenhouse

Since cannabis in greenhouses gets more care, many people claim that the return of investment is very high from the first year. It isn’t necessarily true. Your ROI depends on various factors like promotional channels, the amount you spend initially on the greenhouse, your location, and the quality of the cannabis. While some may experience high ROI, not many will have the same luck.

Now that you are aware of the most common myths, it is high time you avoid such tips from others. Know the facts and then enter the cannabis world.

OSLO | Wed Oct 3, 2012 4:35pm EDT

OSLO (Reuters) – A 200-year period covering the heyday of both the Roman Empire and China’s Han dynasty saw a big rise in greenhouse gases, according to a study that challenges the U.N. view that man-made climate change only began around 1800.

A record of the atmosphere trapped in Greenland’s ice found the level of heat-trapping methane rose about 2,000 years ago and stayed at that higher level for about two centuries.

Methane was probably released during deforestation to clear land for farming and from the use of charcoal as fuel, for instance to smelt metal to make weapons, lead author Celia Sapart of Utrecht University in the Netherlands told Reuters.

“Per capita they were already emitting quite a lot in the Roman Empire and Han Dynasty,” she said of the findings by an international team of scientists in Thursday’s edition of the journal Nature.

Rates of deforestation “show a decrease around AD 200, which is related to drastic population declines in China and Europe following the fall of the Han Dynasty and the decline of the Roman Empire,” the scientists wrote.

Mankind’s emissions 2,000 years ago, when the world population was an estimated 300 million, were discernible but tiny compared with current levels caused by a population of 7 billion.

Sapart estimated that methane emissions until 1800 were about 10 percent of the total for the past 2,000 years, with 90 percent since the Industrial Revolution.

Methane is generated from human sources including burning of forests and fossil fuels, rice paddies, livestock or landfills. Natural sources include wetlands, wildfires or mud volcanoes.

The findings by Sapart’s team questioned the view by a U.N. panel of climate scientists that man-made climate change started with the surge in use of fossil fuels during the Industrial Revolution.


“The pre-industrial time was not a natural time for the climate – it was already influenced by human activity,” she said. “When we do future climate predictions we have to think about what is natural and what did we add. We have to define what is really natural,” she said.

The scientists, in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, the United States and France, noted a second rise in methane in Medieval times, coinciding with a warm period from 800 to 1200 that also saw Europe’s economy emerge from the Dark Ages.

That spike might be because population growth in Asia and Europe led to more deforestation for farming.

Rates then fell, perhaps partly because factors such as the Black Death cut the population.

Methane levels rose a third time around the start of a cool period known as the Little Ice Age in the 1500s, perhaps also reflecting strong population growth after the plague.

The scientists used variations in the chemical make-up of methane in the ice to try to distinguish background natural sources from man-made emissions.

Ice cores from Greenland – made up of layers of compacted snow that give a year-by-year record – found concentrations of methane rose from about 600 parts per billion around 2,000 years ago to above 700 ppb by 1800.

They are now at about 1,800 ppb. Methane is the second most important greenhouse gas behind carbon dioxide, emitted by human burning of fossil fuels.

A U.N. panel of climate scientists has said the build-up of greenhouse gases is pushing up temperatures and causing more droughts, floods, and rising sea levels. China is now the biggest greenhouse-gas emitter ahead of the United States, the European Union, India and Russia.

Organic Marijuana Greenhouse and Farms Could Open in Ohio in 2012

Another example of cannabusiness being an important part of the economy.  Just be careful Ohio marijuana farmers, according to Melinda Haag, it’s still illegal.

yahoonews Medical marijuana measures have seen both success and failures across the United States. The nonprofit coalition is working with an Ohio attorney to sidestep obstacles similar ballot initiatives have encountered before placing the measure on the ballot next year. According to a release by the coalition, 73 percent of Ohioans favor cannabis regulation. If voters in the Buckeye State agree with the statistic, regulated medical marijuana farms and greenhouses would be created in the state. From a strictly fiscal standpoint, jobs and tax revenue could be a welcome shot in the arm to Ohio’s struggling economy.

Pending legislature measures in Ohio may mean the timing is right to allow controlled growth and use of organic marijuana. The rising cost of housing nonviolent inmates who have been convicted of growing even small amounts of cannabis has been a burden on municipalities and the state prison system. Newly appointed Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections Director Gary Mohr stated in an interview published in the Columbus Dispatch that he supports measures to allow specific inmates to reduce their sentences by participating in substance abuse programs. While offering “good time” sentence reductions for substance abuse may not seem like a positive for supporters of organic or medical marijuana, it just may the change in attitude the group needs to succeed.

Ohio’s prisons are in dire financial straits, the controlled use of marijuana would eliminate the need to incarcerate those partaking in legalized use of the organic drug. Abuse and use are at different ends of the mental and physical spectrum. If you are 21 years old you can drink alcohol, but if you abuse the liquid drug and drive, then you go to jail. A similar philosophy could easily be applied to the controlled growth and sale of medical marijuana. Thousands of dollars in eradication efforts could be saved from local government budgets if such a law were to pass. If a medical prescription becomes available, illegal pot growers may soon become a thing of the past.
