This report explores seven issues which producers must consider as they build or upgrade cannabis cultivation facilities to serve newly expanding markets.

  1.  Location significantly influences tradeoffs between indoor and greenhouse facilities. 
  2. Automation is changing the game, but also increases the imperative for having the right people managing the system. 
  3. Build vs. buy? Buying a well-designed facility reduces the time to operationalization, but if the facility needs retrofitting of major systems, the advantage of buying declines. 
  4. Demand for value-added products will increasingly split production between cultivation for smokable flower and for extraction. 
  5. Resource efficiency is an increasingly important competitive differentiator and one of the easiest ways to lower production costs. 
  6. Climate change will have increasingly consequential impacts on cultivation environments. 
  7. Future planning for where the market is going, not where it currently is will differentiate the most successful operators.
