Controlling Biocontamination within Indoor Cultivation Facilities
(Presentation) Due to the complex structure of the different cannabinoids and terpenes profiles varying from strains-to-strain, cannabis researchers and scientist are only now just scratching the surface in efforts to treat and even cure serious illness. The antidotal data is staggering in contrast to the underfunded anecdotal evidence pales in comparison. One thing is certain that when cannabis is grown in a clean, consistent, and stabilized environment it is optimal for scientific research, as well as patient consistency. We will talk about the optimal environmental parameters in which cannabis is grown and how indoor grow facilities are constructed with the overall the goal to minimize the introduction, generation, and retention of airborne particulates, and pest and pathogens within the facility. While maintaining control of all other relevant parameters such as temperature, humidity, and overall room pressure. We will discuss building materials; indoor cultivation techniques are similar to materials used in labs, clean rooms, and commercial kitchens. In addition, we will cover HVAC bio contamination risks and the current climate of medical research.
