Dehumidifier for Cannabis

Cannabis is extremely sensitive to humidity. It’s susceptible to a variety of humidity related diseases such as botrytis, downy mildew and alternaria.

Treating humidity in the growing space with a dehumidifier for cannabis is the most efficient method to prevent and eliminate diseases.

Using a dehumidifier for cannabis also stimulates growth, improving grow quality, and increasing dry weight mass.

Do You Need a Dehumidifier for Cannabis Cultivation?

Whether growing in a greenhouse or indoor, plants constantly transpire water, driving humidity up. If kept unchecked, relative humidity will quickly reach 100%.

Once the air is saturated with water vapor, the dew point is reached and water begins to condense on cooler surfaces, including on the plants and inside the buds. This condensation causes fungal pathogens to develop, leading to disease outbreaks.

Due to cannabis’ strict regulations, both for medicinal and commercial use, it’s necessary to eliminate disease without chemicals. In order to achieve this, growing spaces require dehumidification.

What Is the Best Dehumidifier for Cannabis?

There are many humidity control options on the market. Most of which are designed for traditional purposes, such as industrial processes and storage. These dehumidifiers are optimized for different settings, making their operation sub-optimal in the specific conditions found in cannabis grow rooms.

For cultivation purposes, it’s best to use a dehumidifier designed for cultivation conditions. By using a unit designed to remove water at the specific conditions best for cannabis (around 64oF with 60-80% relative humidity), the humidity reduction is most optimal and energy efficient.

Oregon based cannabis grower, Elad, has been using DryGair dehumidifiers for several years.

While many growers attempt to reduce humidity with the use of fans or cooling systems, such as HVAC, these methods fail to achieve the highest efficiency. This is due to these systems reducing humidity as a byproduct of their operation, rather than a dedicated, optimized condensation system.

DryGair’s solution is designed for horticulture and is optimized for cannabis greenhouses and indoor grow operations. This allows DryGair to incorporate additional benefits for cultivation.

All DG units are equipped with a patent protected air circulation system that ensures uniform climate conditions throughout the space.
