One of the most common mistakes among Canadian growers is forgetting the importance of grow room ventilation. So many growers simply add one or two fans to the setup and assume that’s all they need to do. Fans are great for circulating air, but they don’t do much in terms of ventilating. For that, you’ll need to invest in some sort of ventilation system kit for air exhaust and intake, like the ones we’ve covered here. How to Choose a Grow Room Ventilation System [...]

Growing indoors is the ultimate way to control climate and keep pesky critters from destroying your crop. But controlling indoor climate can be difficult without a high-quality grow tent for growing cannabis. If you have a small to medium-sized operation with your ACMPR license to grow, investing in an indoor grow tent can make all the difference. The question, though, isn’t whether or not a grow tent is a wise investment - it’s which grow tent to choose. This complete guide to the best indoor grow tents for growing cannabis [...]
There are so many moving parts to a successful grow room that having the right tools is essential. One of the most essential pieces of equipment is a high-quality pH or PPM pen. If your plants are experiencing nutrient deficiencies, the reason could be that the pH is all wrong. Even if you’re pumping them full of nutrients, a pH that is too high or too low can stunt growth and ruin potency. Some growers are lucky and can get by without worrying about soil and water pH levels, but [...]
Choosing the type of grow lights you use for your ACMPR grow op is a major decision. We can’t tell you which one to use, but we can tell you that LEDs have been steadily gaining popularity over the past decade or so (even though they’ve been around since the 60s). So why have they become so popular? First off, LEDs are a lot more affordable than they were in the past. But more importantly, these are the most energy-efficient bulbs on the market. And on top of that, LEDs [...]
The internet is an amazing place to find any piece of information imaginable, including info on cannabis cultivation. But not all growers learn best by browsing the web… If you’re the type of person who gets more from flipping the pages of a book than you do from clicking through web pages, this post is for you. Here are the best cannabis growing books for ACMPR growers in Canada. What Marijuana Growing Book is Right for You Even if you’re a die-hard bookworm, there’s [...]
One of the most difficult decisions for any ACMPR grower is deciding on the type of lights to use for an indoor grow op. LED, HPS, CMH, CFL… all of these letter combos can start to get confusing fast. We’re not going to sit here and tell you that CMH grow lights are the best in every way, but growing with CMH bulbs does come with some benefits. CMH, short for ceramic metal halide, emits highly intense lights, similar to HPS grow lights. But unlike HPS, CMH offers the full-color [...]
Every grower knows that climate control is a major aspect of setting up the perfect grow op. Failing to control climate factors like temperature and humidity can lead to some major problems. We’re talking root rot, mold, over drying, and if things get really bad, the entire crop could be a dud. Luckily, you’re not on your own when it comes to controlling the climate of your grow room. A high-quality temperature and humidity controller helps to keep a grow room at the ideal temperature and humidity levels. These small [...]
Since cannabis legalization happened 6 months ago, the Black Market has been majorly affected… but not in the way most government officials and Canadian residents thought it would be.
When you first see that the paperwork for the ACMPR application is 11 pages in total, you might feel like Health Canada is trying to rain on your weed-growing parade.
The Cannabis Act in Canada has been in place for nearly half a year, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that there is still some groundwork to be made
