Nevada Cannabis Producer Green Life Productions Grows Green

Green Life Productions Plants

Now that legal marijuana is the fastest-growing industry in the U.S.—and the environmental effects are multiplying—some growers are rethinking the sustainability of their methods.

Green Life Productions, an indoor medical cannabis farm in Nevada, uses traditional permaculture techniques along with new tech like LED lights that have been specifically designed to grow the most possible pot with 60% to 70% less energy.

The company partnered with Illumitex, an LED manufacturer, to test and tailor energy-saving lights. While plants prefer specific colors of light, cannabis likes an even narrower range, and prefers different spectra at different stages of its life. Illumitex used lab testing with on-staff horticulture scientists to develop “light recipes” for weed, and then installed the lights at Green Life’s facility to test more.
