Exploring Environmental Impacts of Cannabis Production

This session features Tom Ulanowski and Dave Fox as they explore the potential environmental impacts of cannabis cultivation and processing, as well as what the food and beverage industries are doing to address similar environmental issues.

Cannabis production, especially indoor production, is known to have a high carbon footprint, with extensive energy needs required for lighting, ventilation, cooling, and dehumidification. As legalization increases the amount of large-scale, intensive cannabis production facilities across Canada and around the world, understanding the environmental impact of the cannabis industry will be increasingly important to consumers, producers, and regulators, alike.
