What You Need To Know About Cannabis
Cannabis sativa is commonly known as marijuana or ‘dope’ among many. As time went by, the market for cannabis kept increasing. It is therefore a lucrative business to engage oneself in these days if the target market intends to use it for the right purpose. There is also the medical marijuana that is usually given to patients by the doctors. It has therefore been legalized in several states.
Medically, Marijuana relieves extreme pain in people with chronic pain, gives appetite to people undergoing chemotherapy that constantly experience nausea and treat gastritis among others. When considering to start a marijuana business however, several factors must be put into consideration. Legality is what one really needs to consider. Some states require that you get a doctor’s prescription for one to begin growing the cannabis plant.
The other thing that you will have to look into before you grow that cannabis is the location or the space that you would grow it from. If you will go with the indoor space, make sure that the place has electrical outlets. You could even grow them in the basements and the attics. You also need to grow your plant in containers. You should make sure you use large plastic pots. It is significant to acknowledge the fact that cannabis requires sufficient amount of light so as to grow. You could easily ensure that the cannabis plant is exposed to sufficient sunlight by using fluorescent lights, high pressure sodium lights or the halide lights. Other factors such as temperature, humidity, water and carbon dioxide should also be considered.
Lastly, you need to know that harvesting cannabis is not a technical process. You should start to harvest it when the plant starts to flower. You will have to wait a little longer till after the period ends. After the process is complete, cut the plants and remove the lower big leaves. You then need to place the plants in large boxes. The right time to use the cannabis will be when it is very dry. It would be proper if you stirred them around daily because that is what would make them dry even faster. Once you are sure the plants are fully dried, you can then use or supply to the right market since the choice is all yours so all you will have to do will be to resist the temptation of distributing it illegally.
