The Effect of Light Spectrum on the Morphology and Cannabinoid Content of Cannabis sativa L.

November 11, 2019

“Manipulation of the spectrum, an advantage of the LED technology, offers better space utilization to support the heating and cooling loads of growing buildings. LED lighting strategies may be applied to improve the energy utilization and carbon footprint of cannabis crop.”

“In conclusion, the experiments presented here demonstrate that the optimal spectrum for a specific photoperiod scheme may have diverse beneficial effects on cannabis growth, yield, and cannabinoid profile. Our study shows that the light environment plays an important role not only in plant size and stature but also in the accumulation of cannabinoids.
