There has been a lot of debate on what is the better type of grow-setup within the cannabis communities indoor vs outdoor growing debate. Although it is more commonly accepted that Indoor Cannabis is better, the truth is that it really depends on what the grower is looking and both seeds have their benefits.
In this blog, I'll detail some pros and cons of each technique and tell you a little bit about each.
Indoor growing has been made popular over the last 60 years due to cannabis prohibition. The illegality of cannabis has pushed the plant underground where indoor grows were much safer. This is because the plants were hidden from the authorities. At some stage, during this time somebody realised that growing plants indoors and artificially gave them a lot of control on how the plant grows. The environment could be controlled so every aspect of the growing process could be modified. This not only allowed growers to get a good yield out of their plants but also allows them to make tweaks that could increase potency and make the plant produce higher amounts of medical compounds! Indoor grown cannabis is more precise and creates and more predictable and prettier bud than outdoor. The issue is, Indoor weed will never bring you the wonderful flavour, smell and balanced high that the complexities of conditions that mother earth provides can produce!
Outdoor cannabis growing has been happening for thousands of years. It is where growing cannabis started and it's where a lot of growers say the best weed is grown. Would you rather have a fruit that was grown outside under the sun or a fruit that was grown indoors in what is basically a laboratory? Most people would prefer the outdoor tomato to the indoor tomato due to its more authentic taste. This same rule applies for cannabis. The best weed is grown where it is grown naturally ( For example in the Kush Mountains or Mexico ). Outdoor growing lacks the environment which produce's a consistent commercial product but those environments lack the unique and subtle ways of outdoor growing which produce an exquisite end product. Outdoor growings also give the user access to a whole lot more space and options. Yields are higher and the plants usually need less care.
As you can probably see by now, each growing technique has its own advantages and disadvantages. A grower would be best to assess what they are looking for their grow and do a bit of research on what would be best for them!
