Energy-efficient Cannabis Greenhouse

Why Choose a Light Deprivation Greenhouse?

Cannabis and many flowering crops are highly responsive to the length of light (the photoperiod). In simple terms, the plants have evolved to begin flowering at a specific day length.

Greenhouse light deprivation systems allow the grower to control light levels to achieve the desired plant response. This allows for multiple harvests in a year, and can add millions of dollars in revenue to a cannabis operation. Given those facts, light deprivation systems are the norm in cannabis greenhouses. They create the best of both worlds: using free natural light, and creating a highly controlled environment for year-round harvests. Ceres cannabis greenhouses accommodate this with automated light deprivation systems, which use 12 hours of natural light, followed by 12 hours of darkness.
