CANNA™ is designed to support your use of natural sunlight, artificial lighting, or blend of both. With the strength and rigidity of our steel framing, you can locate lighting, ballasts and wiring anywhere. The "polar white" wall-panel color option optimizes the solar reflectivity of your interior. Further, greenhouse panels may be installed along both wall and roof systems to best leverage the natural lighting that season allow.
Temperature-control is one of the most important factors in producing a healthy harvest. CANNA™ accommodates multiple types of insulation packages at customized R-values. Your option of thermal panels offers unique advantages over conventional wall construction to your grow operation.
The humidity needs of your crop change throughout its lifecycle. CANNA™ features the best in climate-control technologies. Its thermal or interior-liner panels may be easily sanitized to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Most importantly, your building system's pre-painted galvanized panels withstand corrosion and warping in high-humidity environments, over extended time.
Customizable lighting, temperature, humidity and irrigation systems can only carry you so far -- the biggest limit to the potential profitability of your operation is space. With almost limitless interior span, your CANNA™ package provides a cost-effective indoor-grow solution, per square-foot. Further, steel buildings may be easily replicated to accommodate the growth of your operation!
Whether you intend to germinate your own seeds or cultivate clones, cannabis seedlings appreciate high-humidity and warm-temperature environments. They drink white light, and are over-sensitive to nutrients. Although they help to decrease the indoor life-cycle of your crop, clones are particularly vulnerable to mold and pests (see humidity). After evidence of the beginnings of a healthy root system, seedlings are ready to be transplanted.
In optimum conditions, cannabis may grow several inches each day! However, the cannabis plant grows no faster than the rate at which its leaves can produce energy for new growth. Of particular importance to the process of photosynthesis is the maintenance of optimal CO2-levels in your growing area. Your CANNA™ design will enable you to control temperature, ventilation, humidity, lighting intensity and duration for each growing stage, supporting not only the efficient growth of your crop but also the energy-efficiency of your facility.
After a change in light sequence that mimics the outdoor growing season, the cannabis plant becomes sexually mature, and begins to produce THC-rich, resin-condensed buds. For CANNA's greenhouse option, electronically managed light-deprivation system helps to move your crop to the flowering stage though artificial manipulation of the cannabis photo-period. Slightly cooler, dryer climates prevail during this stage, as do timer-controlled periods of orange-red lighting. This stage extends for ~7-12 weeks, depending on strain.
A temperature- and humidity-controlled environment is critical to the completion of the curing process. Further, your facility should be optimized to allow you to move easily from flowering, to drying, to distribution. Your CANNA™ design might include not only trim-areas and storage systems but also loading dock-areas. Last but not least, your CANNA™ system support the integration of video surveillance and security-alarm systems, which help protect your valuable asset.
Leveraging a diverse pool of structural engineer, technician and master grower expertise, the CANNA™ building system provides several turn-key options that consider all of the grower's needs. We provide all but the soil.
The clear-span design of CANNA's pre-engineered building may be easily customized for your facility's grow, storage and/or distribution processes. Among its many features, the CANNA™ system may be tailored to include specialized lighting, temperature-control, ventilation, CO2-moniotoring, irrigation and humidity-regulation systems, suiting your requirements.
