In this news air filtration experts break down the cannabis cultivation process, address key concerns for cannabis producers, and provide tips for protecting cannabis plants and ensuring employee safety.

On October 17th, 2018, Canada legalized cannabis production and consumption for those over the age of 181. Since its legalization, the once taboo image of cannabis has shifted to one that is widely accepted and profitable. In fact, in the past three years that cannabis has become legal, the industry has contributed $17 billion of economic output to the Canadian economy2. Cannabis manufacturers attempt to grow plants to the highest standard, and this process can be quite complex. As such, these manufacturers must take care to protect their processes and people.

  2. Greenhouse, similar to some plants and vegetables (harvest four times a year)
  3. Fully inclosed (harvest six to eight times a year)
