The obvious benefit to tiered applications is the ability to increase canopy square footage without additional building square footage. Although there are some drawbacks to multi-tier growing, there can also be great reward, and so we’re seeing more and more of our clients choose to go this route in their facilities.

Most cannabis industry cultivators think of “controls” as the dashboard where they can see their room parameters and adjust photoperiods or temperature setpoints, and a lot of folks make their decisions around controls based solely on that user interface. This is an important part of the toolkit but is really the least critical piece to a controls system’s functionality.

NCIA Lobby Days and Lift Expo: What we learned

At Surna, we’ve had a busy few weeks and we want to keep our readers up to date not only with what we’re doing but also with what we’re learning about this new industry. In the last month, we’ve gotten up close and personal with both the American and Canadian cannabis markets.  On May 15, we traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the National Cannabis Industry Association’s (NCIA) Lobby Days. Then last week we headed to Toronto to attend and exhibit at the Lift Expo. Both events were enlightening and gave us an even better understanding of the trends in, and future of, this exciting industry.

Cannabis is one of the North America’s newest and most promising industries. It is now medically legal in 29 states and recreationally legal in 8 states, with even more allowing CBD for certain medical conditions. A recent poll also shows that close to 60% of American support legalized cannabis and Canada is taking cannabis even further, introducing legislation to federally legalize the plant in 2018. All of this indicates a trend away from prohibition toward a regulated market. And yet, some are still wary of cannabis.
