Eric Brandstad: Using Light Deprivation to Alter Flowering Cycles
The Ganjapreneur Podcast
Eric Brandstad is the founder of Forever Flowering Greenhouses, and a pioneer of light deprivation techniques for cannabis growers. Light deprivation essentially involves tricking a plant into thinking the days are shorter than they actually are, causing the plant to flower sooner than it would if it were exposed to the entire summer day. This means that growers are able to work around the natural harvest cycle and get more crops out of the summer season.Eric recently joined our podcast host Shango Los to discuss his light deprivation methods, how the process has evolved over time, and how his company's greenhouses are designed to make the process simple to manage on a commercial scale.
