Yet indoor growing is the most environmentally damaging of them all, due to the vast amount of electricity used, which in turn contributes to carbon emissions. You also need copious amounts of water to keep the plants alive throughout the farming process. “Energy consumption is by far the biggest issue and can be solved by growing in greenhouses instead of indoors,” explains Jouke Piepenbrink, chief marketing officer for Dutch Passion, an Amsterdam-based cannabis seed company.
“If cannabis is grown outdoors or in greenhouses without artificial light, the environmental impact is very low,” he adds.
Illegal cannabis growers will often use the indoor farming method to keep a low profile, sometimes even turning to diesel or gasoline generators to avoid using power from the grid and raising suspicion.
Cannabis is a product of the cannabis sativa plant that is used for its psychoactive and therapeutic effects. It comes in many forms, including as dried flowers and leaves; hash; extracts, such as oil (e.g., honey oil, phoenix tears) and shatter; and edibles (e.g., candies, butter or baked goods).
Mendo Breath Cartridge contains hundreds of chemical substances. More than 100 chemicals, called cannabinoids, have been identified as specific to the cannabis plant. THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid and is most responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis use. Another cannabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD). CBD has little or no psychoactive effects, so you do not feel high. CBD counteracts some of the negative effects of THC.
