Anders PetersonSince 1995, he has been working in the cannabis sector. He is a cell molecular biologist and is now 30 years old. His obsession with the science behind cannabis drives his career. Peterson is currently a Cannabis Operations Specialist. Inspire Transpiration Solutions. Inspire specializes on integrated HVDC systems to maintain proper temperature, humidity and airflow in indoor plant environments.
Cornell defines CEAHydroponically-based agriculture is a more intensive and advanced form of hydroponically-based farming where plants are grown in a controlled environment to maximize horticultural practices. UC DavisCEA can be described as agriculture that incorporates a variety technology-based farming methods. The most advanced CEA systems include fully automated closed-loop systems that can control lighting, water, and ventilation. These systems can range from simple shade structures to greenhouses and vertical farms.
Peterson says that the world of cannabis HVAC is interesting. He’s obsessed with the science and art of growing cannabis indoors. Investors are rapidly building grow facilities as the industry becomes legal in each state. Many investors get into the space without realizing that this is farming. Peterson stated that farming is not a way to get rich quick. The potential for long-term income is possible if investors do their research and design their space properly. Peterson explained that investing in the right systems upfront will ensure you have an asset that will make you money for 15 or more years.
Podcast host Greg Crumpton, said that his passion for the cannabis industry is rooted from (no pun intended). I want to understand how water evaporates from plants. Back to science. The facts. He doesn’t have any control over what happens to the plants after he has created the environment. Crumpton said that my point was to provide a healthy environment.
The cannabis industry is expanding rapidly. Legalizations from one state to the next shows promise for federal legalization. Peterson has witnessed an exponential increase in cannabis knowledge and industry standards. Peterson points out that botanists in new careers are spoiled for choice and have access to a lot of information. He spent hours researching online forums and discussions to find genuine answers, compared to when his research began. Transparency is the best way to legitimize this industry. Peterson said that the industry has changed at an alarming rate and you must adapt or you will be left behind.
Peterson predicts that federal laws will lift sanctions on state-to-state trade, and that growing will become more stable and less expensive. Hyper-controllable HVDC system create an ideal CEA for cannabis growing.
Peterson uses this unique method to connect the plants to small humidifiers. They drink water from their roots. Peterson stated that the vapor pressure deficit drives the water through the plant’s leaves and through its roots when the lights are turned on. After 12 hours, the space will experience a dramatic shift in order to combat the light. If the humidity is not properly drawn out, it will cause a swamp and temperatures to drop by 12-15°. The HVAC controls balance spikes that could otherwise cause damage to the plants. These spikes were previously managed by growers using fan technology, plant care products, and other methods. Peterson explained that your HVAC system is now the best tool for risk mitigation.
