MedMen recently converted a traditional single-tier cultivation facility using high pressure sodium (HPS) lights into a multi-tier vertical grow light farm using Fluence SPYDR and RAZR LED lighting systems. See more: https://fluence.science/medmen/ The new facility is optimized to increase revenue per square foot, with all phases of plant cultivation — from propagation to bloom — growing under Fluence vertical LED lights. This transformation has: -Decreased cycle time on eight-week strains by up to 25 percent, reducing production time by 5 to 7 days for retail flower market and by 12 to 14 days for oil-extraction and derivatives markets. -Reduced the cost per pound of finished product by 300 percent. -Decreased energy consumption per light fixture by 40 percent, going from approximately 1,100 watts per light to 660 watts per light. -Reduced heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) load by approximately 35 percent per square foot of canopy. -More than doubled production per square foot; reduced land requirements by 50 percent. -Increased crop yield by 157 percent while reducing water and fertilizer usage. -Improved consistent, year-round flower quality and chemotype with denser trichrome development. MedMen Management offers turnkey solutions to cannabis license holders in the areas of cultivation, extraction, production and retail operations. Fluence Bioengineering is a LED grow light manufacturer located in Austin, TX. Fluence's goal is to evolve the way the world cultivates food, medicine and our collective understanding of photobiology. We have combined more than a century of expertise in photobiology research, semiconductor design and lighting design to explore high-PPFD cultivation, wavelength impact on plant morphology, and photoperiodic response.

New research suggests that marijuana use can deteriorate the part of the brain responsible for decision-making. Dr. David Agus joins "CBS This Morning" from Los Angeles to discuss the study.
Cannabis contains at least 60 types of cannabinoids, chemical compounds that act on receptors throughout our brain. THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s effects, including the euphoric high. THC resembles another cannabinoid naturally produced in our brains, anandamide, which regulates our mood, sleep, memory, and appetite. Credit: NIDA
