Growing with Cannabis Tech: Technology for the DIY Home GrowerWith the help of Green Goddess Supply, we’re launching a new video series all about home-grow technology and how to grow quality cannabis right in your own living room!
High-Tech Cannabis Grow Systems Simplify Growing At Home is one of Cannabis Tech’s highest-performing articles. Since its original publication date, that article has had over 100,000 views and continues to be one of our top articles every month.
Well, we hear you, and we’re going to expand on our consumer technology coverage for 2023! We've partnered with Green Goddess Supply to create a new video podcast series will cover the entire at-home growing process – from unboxing to producing a final product.
We get it… growing cannabis at home can be intimidating. Sure, anyone can throw a seed in some soil, give it light and water, and watch it grow. But ensuring a high-quality cannabis crop with the best yields possible requires a little more precision. Just like anyone can grow tomatoes but growing state-fair blue-ribbon tomatoes takes a little more TLC.
With this new video series, we'll walk you through every step of the process utilizing technology solutions from our Marketplace Partners available for home growers everywhere, starting from ground zero – setting up an automated grow system in our home here in Colorado, and we're going to share our experience.
Why Buy an Indoor Cannabis Grow System?
Today, thanks to changing state laws, 23 states allow consumers and medical patients to grow cannabis at home.
- States where growing cannabis for medical use is permitted: Arizona, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota
- States where anyone can grow cannabis: Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington
- States where growing cannabis is still prohibited: Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah, West Virginia
Before these legal chances, legacy growers pieced together elaborate grow boxes and systems to grow their plants discreetly. Curious cultivators don’t have to be experts in agricultural hardware to build a quality grow box.
If you’re fortunate enough to live in a state where you can grow your own, here are a few benefits of growing cannabis for yourself:
In the states where permitted, growing cannabis at home can provide significant savings for consumers. Not only are you not paying retail prices for a similar product, but you’re also not paying state taxes.
But growing a quality crop takes using the right equipment to provide the best environment possible for your plants. Complete systems like the ATS-42 can simplify the process of building your grow box by providing all the necessary components, as well as the instructions for putting it all together.
In our case, we live an hour and a half from the nearest dispensary, so growing at home will save us a tremendous amount of time and gas money, too.
Increased Number of Grow Cycles
In cold climates, like our winters here in Colorado, weather conditions can make for short growing seasons outdoors. An indoor system allows growers to grow their plants all year round, regardless of outdoor conditions. Additionally, with consistent lighting and optimal conditions, a grow system can produce a mature crop every 60 days. More growing cycles equals more yields.
Winter at 8200 ft. can be brutally cold, so initially, we’ll be setting up the grow system in the loft where we can manage the room temperature a little easier. Once the temperatures are on the rise in Colorado, we’ll move the system to our main living area. But we’ll cover each growing process phase via our video podcast.
Eliminating Pests & Potential Hazards
Growing indoors also helps eliminate pests that want your plants more than you do.
Even with a greenhouse, growing outdoors comes with challenges. True story, we had three successful years growing cannabis in a small greenhouse outside. That was until the chipmunks figured out how to burrow in from the bottom and ate all our plants!
Even if you don’t have chipmunks, other pests can still threaten your grow. Mold, fungus, and microbial infections impact your plants and the quality of your harvest. Green Goddess’s grow tent is designed to deter pests – even the invisible ones.
Information from the Green Goddess site explains, “The 13 Spectrum, high PAR, low-heat proprietary LED light has the unique ability to inhibit molds and deter pests naturally. Combined with our proprietary design and time-tested grow protocol, these features ensure a strong immune system and a pathogen-free plant without using pesticides, herbicides, or unwanted additives.”
Additionally, by growing your own with a tent like this, you can ensure that your crop is 100% all-natural with no contaminants, pesticides, or other chemicals.
More than Just a Cannabis Grow Tent
Sponsoring this video series by providing us with their ATS-42 Grow System, Green Goddess Supply is taking the guesswork out of growing cannabis. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran with a green thumb or a novice who’s never grown anything in your life, this system promises to take guidance to a whole new level with a concierge service to help you every step of the way.
The concierge service includes one full year of one-on-one support for your system, including Zoom-based, plant-specific growing and training lessons, from seed germination to growing, training, harvesting, curing, and storage.
