Geothermal Power, Heat Pumps, and Cannabis Cultivation

Stefanos Gialamas
Whether Indoor cultivation or greenhouse cultivation energy consumption is a major expense, and consideration. Each locale has its own challenges in the form of temperature, humidity, growing season, need for additional lights, the availability of electricity, natural gas, and latitude of operation. Geothermal power in its different forms can provide...

Co-Generation Turbines for Energy-Efficient Cultivation

Stefanos Gialamas
Greece is one of the first countries in the EU to allow large scale pharmaceutical cannabis production by independent companies.  Cannabis grown in high-tech, fully automated and climate controlled greenhouses or indoor facilities, capable of year-round cultivation, require significant amounts of energy and a high power load capability.  Some studies...

Tissue Culture for Cannabis

Stefanos Gialamas
For thousands of years, farmers planted seeds to continue lines of crops. At many times around the world people discovered the process of artificial pollination (probably by watching bees!). This hand pollination allowed us to develop many of the food crops we use today from humble beginnings. We discovered grafting...

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Yanna Kanakaki
By  Yanna Jo The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is an internal, biological, neuro-regulatory system that is directly related to the cannabis plant, because of the production of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors and cannabinoid receptor proteins, expressed throughout the vertebral central and peripheral nervous system...
