High Times: Marijuana Growing and the Environment

In his sunny office on the edge of town in Arcata, California, Scott Greacen pulls up a slideshow on his large high-resolution monitor. As wildflowers sway in the wind outside a window, a woodsy guitar solo starts to play along with the pictures. Greacen mutes it; he wants to focus on destruction. Aerial images of clear-cut plots within the coastal forest, bounded by dusty roads and dotted with trucks, show the intrusion of industrial marijuana cultivation into redwood groves and hillsides.

Pot Zero embodies sustainably grown cannabis grown using a Zero Carbon Footprint. Pot Zero is called Pot Zero because of it Zero Carbon footprint. This means that there are no harmful bi-products used in the cultivation of Pot Zero Marijuana. 

The water used for feeding crops coming from a natural high altitude stream, the fertilizer comes from the manure of a herd of grass fed cattle located on the other side of the plantation, and the power used for running lights comes from a hydro-electric turbine that is powered by that same high-altitude stream. 

Because Pot Zero grows using only natural ingredients found on the plantation itself, it does not contribute anything negative to the surrounding environment.

Do You Really Know What You’re Smoking?                        

Since legalization, the marijuana industry has exploded over the last decade.  One of the main advantages for legalizing cannabis is for proper oversight and regulation of the crop. However, even with strict government agencies in place, not all cultivators, extractors, and edible manufacturers in the legal cannabis industry are growing true, clean, sustainable pot.

With cultivators using a variety of growing techniques, nutrients, pesticides, and artificialities, marijuana smokers today need to be cautious with regards to their cannabis purchases. Similar to the absolutely excessive amount of processed foods and sugars in today’s food market, there are just a handful of growers that understand what it means to grow clean, sustainable, organic marijuana.

At Pot Zero, our growing technique maintains a 100% zero-carbon footprint. When a visitor arrives at Pot Zero, it is noticeable immediately what “clean pot” really looks like.
