Cannabis cultivation in North America has literally transitioned from the closet and into commercial agriculture. The variety of growers range from medical cannabis caregivers who grow for small groups of medical marijuana patients to large multi-million dollar operations that distribute medical and recreational cannabis state-wide. The rules and regulations for cannabis cultivation vary from state to state and even though new laws governing marijuana growers are introduced frequently, the methods of cultivation typically remain the same.

For medical marijuana cultivators, the emphasis on safe product for patients is paramount for operations. Start-ups and long-time cultivators licensed to grow cannabis look for safe alternatives to pesticides and organic cultivation methods. While testing requirements in the marijuana industry varies from state-to-state, many medical marijuana producers seek to go above and beyond the requirements held by state-licensed cannabis testing labs in order to constantly improve the safety of their medical cannabis for patients. Medical marijuana producers can be either non-profit or for-profit entities depending on the state they operate from, however without properly managing operations medical growers can be fined, shut-down, or can fall-short of turning a sustainable income. MMJ producers who fail to observe these realities can not only see their businesses close but also leave several patients looking for another source of reliable and safe medicine.

State-licensed recreational marijuana producers have a similar focus on safety, but also need to consider large-scale production approaches and smart cost-reduction methods to remain competitive as for-profit entities. The majority of licensed recreational cultivators operate under stringent state guidelines and require sanctioned resolutions for cultivation problems. Failure to observe the state regulations can result in large fines and operators can ultimately lose their licenses if repeated offenses occur. Recreational cannabis producers must also consider factors like security, insurance and building requirements on top of the shifting variables mandated by governing authorities.  Due to their for-profit nature, tax structures and innate competition in the marijuana industry, licensed producers also need to be able to turn a healthy profit in order to remain and grow with the burgeoning business.
