Global legal cannabis market: Use of advanced techniques in cannabis cultivation
Owing to the advent of new processes used in cannabis cultivation, the cannabis industry has been witnessing growth. These processes have been extremely helpful in enhancing the quality and increasing the production level. Cannabis cultivation is basically done in fully-equipped laboratories with facilities such as sanitized chambers and controlled environment.
“The production level has significantly improved because of advanced techniques such as Screen of Green and Sea of Green. These techniques use nutrient-laden solution to produce cannabis that is rich in THC. Marijuana-derived CBD oil products have also improved in quality because of the use of these techniques,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on food products.
