Air Filtration for Cannabis and CBD production

Cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) production is quickly becoming a significant industry as legislation across the U.S. is changing. Production of both requires adherence to certain governmental regulations, including air filtration regulation. Growhouses require carefully designed air filtration systems that often use several stages of filtration to promote healthy plant growth and eliminate nuisance odors. Proper air filtration helps to ensure healthy plant growth by reducing impurities and limits associated odors, both within the facility and in the surrounding area.

Improving Indoor Air Quality and Preventing Contamination

Cannabis has a rather complex chemistry due to its large number of constituents, and the interaction of those constituents with one another. These constituents primarily include mono- and sesquiterpenes, sugars, hydrocarbons, steroids, flavonoids, nitrogen compounds, amino acids, and terpenophenolic cannabinoids. Many of these substances are odorous, with terpenes and terpenoids being the primary offenders. While nuisance odors are most prevalent with cannabis cultivation, other sources of cannabis odors include test labs, extraction rooms, warehouses, and dispensaries. Proper air filtration will not only eliminate these odors, but also create a better environment for growing plants, reduce impurities when testing products, and provide cleaner air for personnel and customers.

Controlling Airborne Particulates and Odor

Filtration is recommended for the following cannabis applications:

  • Outdoor Air for Grow Rooms
    • Particulate filtration to remove outdoor particulate matter such as pollen, bacteria, dirt, and dust
    • Gas-phase filtration to remove outdoor contaminants such as ozone, VOCs, and acid gases
  • Indoor Air for Grow Rooms, Extraction, and Dispensaries
    • Gas-phase filtration to remove plant odors
    • Gas-phase filtration to remove butane or ethanol vapor from cannabis oil extraction
  •  Exhaust Air for Grow Rooms and Warehouses
    • Particulate filtration to remove indoor particulate matter
    • Gas-phase filtration to remove plant odors
