Odors produced by growing cannabis can be difficult to manage. Created by the plant’s essential oils, some odors from cannabis farms have been detected more than a mile from their source.

With the legalization of recreational marijuana in many states, growing concerns are being expressed from neighbors and neighboring businesses regarding these odors. Complaints of cannabis odors have even increased by as much as 87% in some areas since growing marijuana became legal. Local governments and clean air agencies are now enacting laws and issuing fines (sometimes for tens of thousands of dollars) to limit odors.


Odor Control Challenges


Finding an effective odor removal method can be challenging. Cannabis growers are faced with the below factors, which make many generic odor control solutions a non-option:

A Plant-Based Solution Formulated Specifically for Cannabis


Ecosorb® CNB 100 from OMI is a natural odor remover that was formulated to specifically control odors in cannabis. The product’s blend of purified water, surfactant and natural plant oils eliminates odor-causing chemical compounds in cannabis, including cannabinoids, terpenes and sesquiterpenes.

CNB 100 does not contain harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances. It is non-toxic, non-harzardous, biodegradable and doesn’t contain harmful VOCs, which means it is safe to use around people and animals.


Non-Invasive Dispersion System


OMI manufactures dispersion equipment for CNB 100 using vapor phase technology, which requires no added water.  Distribution systems are placed where exhaust exits the growing facility, eliminating odors before they leave the building and become a nuisance for neighbors in the surrounding area. However, CNB 100 can also be delivered through misting systems from other manufacturers. OMI’s team of odor control experts will work directly with your team to determine the best solution for your individual facility, which can include weatherproofed systems, modular greenhouse systems, automated controls, complete integration with existing systems and even custom blends.
