Telling the difference between marijuana grown indoors and outdoors can be a bit hard, unless you’re a marijuana connoisseur. There are pros and cons attached to these two growing methods, which means that learning about their differences could be beneficial, whether you simply want to get better at identifying marijuana you purchase or would prefer to grow your own.
Below, we look at the differences between indoor-grown and outdoor-grown marijuana:
Most cultivators prefer growing their cannabis indoors because it provides more control over factors such as water, temperature and light, among other aspects involved in cannabis cultivation. Growing marijuana outdoors leaves cultivators prone to varying factors such as unforeseen changes in weather.
However, growing indoors also consumes significant levels of energy, which means that in comparison with outdoor cultivation, you’ll have more utility expenses. Unlike indoor cultivation, outdoor growing is much more environment friendly because it requires less electricity and resources to grow, making it cheaper to produce. Outdoor cultivation also has a lower carbon footprint.
Indoor-grown cannabis also yields less in comparison with outdoor-grown cannabis. Despite the lower yield, however, indoor growing allows you to grow the plant year-round as long as one is in possession of the right tools and equipment, which makes it more convenient when compared to outdoor cultivation, which is limited by growing conditions and the current season.
Marijuana plants grown outside also require less adjustments in fertilizers, fungicides, pesticides and soil, with experts noting that there is no need to add nutrients to the soil if the plant is growing in a naturally fertile area. For instance, some of the best marijuana in the world can be found in Jamaica. The plant grows there with almost no amendments due to the sufficient sunlight, rain fall and soil.
This makes fertile soil a crucial factor to consider as well as use, given that good soil contains loads of micro and macronutrients like iron, copper, nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus, which are needed for the growth of healthy plants.
Marijuana plants grown outdoors are also more resilient to threats like pests in comparison to indoor grown plants, which makes them stronger, as well as healthier and more resistant to mildew and mold.
It should be noted that there exist strains of cannabis that are grown both outdoors and indoors, each of which affords consumers with a unique experience. Entities such as American Cannabis Partners have mastered how to optimize whichever cultivation method is most feasible in their areas of operation in order to produce premium products.
