One of the talks was about the pros and cons of growing medical cannabis in greenhouses or indoor farms. Speakers agreed on the fact that opting for one or the other facility depends on many factors - one above all being climate. Greenhouses can be very challenging to manage, but they are cheaper in terms of sq ft than indoor farms. The latter, however, allows for a better control on the different parameters that can affect the plant growth. Indoor farms require a high level of technology in order to function correctly, and therefore they need to be carefully designed so to keep the cost low.
