How to Mitigate Cannabis Odor With Misting Systems

Cannabis plants have a strong odor when they are at the flowering stage of growth. In states where cannabis can be grown legally, there is an increasing concern about the odor that these greenhouses produce. Strong odor is not something that is unique to cannabis growth, but it is more distinct and more problematic than many other commercially grown crops. Consequently, there are strict odor control regulations on greenhouses that grow legalized marijuana, and there are severe consequences if regulations are violated.

To meet regulations and be a responsible community partner, companies should rely on environmental cannabis odor control systems to rid their facilities of incurred odors while these plants flower and bloom. High-pressure fogging systems are an effective way to manage cannabis odor, and they offer other benefits that air scrubbers or filters simply can’t provide.

How to Control Cannabis Odor

There are limited options for cannabis growers to consider when it comes to effective cannabis odor control systems. In virtually all cases, these are relatively new companies due to recent changes in cannabis legalization. This means there may not be a lot of startup cash available specifically for air purification and filtration systems. To maximize your harvest without going over budget, it’s important that your cannabis greenhouse have the following environmental control systems:

  • Misting systems: Most industry-standard misting systems are compatible with other environmental control systems. This allows staff to customize the system to operate within specific parameters, which is ideal for every stage of production, from cloning to flowering.
  • Fog systems: One way to control the smell is through charcoal filters, but these are very costly and result in a lot of maintenance to the companies that use them. Filtration also restricts the air exchange rate, which has a negative impact on growing conditions. Fog systems are a more effective and cost-friendly solution that completely neutralizes the odor instead of just masking it.
