How Long Does THC Stay in Your System?

How Long Does THC Stay in Your System?

If there’s one caveat to cannabis use, it’s potentially failing the dreaded drug test. Many employers, especially government agencies and high-tech firms, regularly monitor both current and new hires for any THC content in their systems, prompting cannabis users to ask: is there any THC left in my body? 

Unfortunately, the answer depends on a lot of different factors; fortunately, we’re about to dissect the drug testing process for you. Whether you just got hired for a new job, just got notified of a random drug test, or just want to learn more about THC in the body, let’s uncover the mystery of drug testing.

THC’s Effects on the Body

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive compound in cannabis associated with the plant’s high. THC interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the body, as well as with certain neurons in the brain, resulting in the full-body effects of cannabis. 

Typically, a cannabis high will last between 2-10 hours. In that time, your body slowly filters through THC, creating a non-psychoactive compound called THC-COOH that gets stored in some of your fat cells. 

Your body’s ability to absorb THC-COOH into fat cells is why drug tests can detect traces of the drug weeks, sometimes months, after you consume cannabis. Drug tests are looking for the presence of THC-COOH in your system, which your body slowly releases as it metabolizes fat. Individual differences in fat storage and metabolism explain why there’s no set timeline for when THC exits your body; rather, it depends on a multitude of factors.

Factors That Affect How Long THC Stays in Your System

On average, the traces of THC in your system are undetectable after around 30 days. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily pass a drug test 31 days after using; there are several different factors that can keep traces of THC in your system for much longer. These include:

  • Frequency of use. People who consume cannabis or cannabis products more frequently will naturally store more THC-COOH in their systems. 
  • Amount of use. The more THC you consume, the longer it will take to metabolize out of your body. 
  • Body fat storage. Bodies with a higher amount of fat will get rid of THC-COOH slower, as these cannabis compounds will diffuse across your fat storage. 
  • Metabolic speed. The body gets rid of THC-COOH by metabolizing fat, so if you know you have a slower metabolism, then you will hold onto THC-COOH for longer. 
  • Hydration levels. If you don’t drink enough water, then THC-COOH will be more concentrated in your system. 

Finally, it’s important to consider not only these biological factors, but also one very important measurement of THC levels: the drug test itself.

Different Types of THC Drug Tests

Cannabis drug tests vary in terms of both their sensitivity to THC-COOH and in what parts of the body they examine. An employer may use one of the following THC drug tests:

  • Saliva testing. Saliva tests are cheaper and less invasive, but they also have a short detection window – generally 12-48 hours.  
  • Urine testing. Urine tests are the most common, since they are both standardized and widely available. A urine test can detect THC-COOH in your system even if you last used cannabis over 30 days ago.
  • Hair testing. Hair testing is relatively uncommon, and also less standardized, but it does have a longer detection window. A hair test can detect cannabis usage from over 90 days ago. 

One important note about drug tests is that their success depends on their sensitivity. Generally, a THC drug test will look for a concentration of THC in your system at 50 ng/ml. However, if the test is more sensitive – say, 10ng/ml – the detection window is much longer. Thankfully, highly sensitive drug tests are only used at higher level jobs and national government agencies.

Do CBD Products Contain THC?

You might be worried about passing a drug test if you use CBD-based products. Generally, CBD products don’t contain any amount of THC, but it depends on how that product was processed and manufactured. Trace amounts of THC may linger in products that are not well-refined, but you will probably still pass a drug test regardless.

If you’re worried about the products you’re using, be sure to buy cannabis products from quality manufacturers and licensed dispensaries. All of Waveseer’s CBD products are guaranteed THC-free, and you can purchase them from any of the dispensaries listed here.

How Can I Flush THC Out of my System?

If you have a drug test scheduled soon and want to make sure you pass, don’t stress. There are a couple of ways you can get rid of THC-COOH from your system, ensuring a successful drug test. 

  1. Exercise. A good workout will metabolize fat and help clear your body of THC-COOH faster. However, don’t exercise 24 hours before your test, as that THC-COOH will end up in your urine. 
  2. Avoid fatty foods. The more fat your body accumulates, the longer it will take to flush your system of THC-COOH.
  3. Hydrate. Drinking plenty of water will help flush out your system, and it will also dilute the concentration of THC-COOH in your body.

Lastly, don’t try to cheat the drug test. Some people might try to take substances which mask the presence of THC-COOH, such as pyridinium chlorochromate. However, drug tests also scan for these substances, and if detected, you will most certainly not get the job. 

In a brighter future, jobs won’t screen applicants for cannabis usage, given the many health benefits it offers users. Until then, this guide to drug testing will help ensure you keep your job.

Why is Medical Marijuana Seedless?

Why is Medical Marijuana Seedless?

If plants have seeds, and cannabis is a plant, then there should be cannabis seeds in medical marijuana products. Right?

Up until the 1970s, all cannabis growers used cannabis seeds, and all cannabis products had seeds in them. Then, growers realized that cannabis doesn’t need to be fertilized to reproduce, and that seedless strains actually had a greater psychoactive effect. 

Fast forward 50 years, and many cannabis growers now produce solely seedless strains. But, how does seedless cannabis reproduce, and why does it give a stronger high? Let’s investigate why medical marijuana is seedless, and what happened to cannabis seeds.

No More Cannabis Seeds: Growing Sinsemilla

It turns out, cannabis doesn’t need its seeds to be fertilized. Most plants have male or female reproductive parts: males produce pollen, females produce seeds and fruit. Female cannabis strains can still reproduce without being fertilized – they just end up reproducing near-identical copies of themselves.

These seedless cannabis strains are known as sinsemilla – Spanish for “without seeds.” These seedless plants produce much bigger flowers and yield more potent cannabinoids, making cannabis seeds a thing of the past for many growers.

Why is Medical Marijuana Seedless?

Cannabis strains with seeds produce far less of the cannabinoids THC and CBD. When a female cannabis plant is fertilized, it diverts resources towards growing seeds, and the flower from which cannabis products are made will stop growing. As a result, fertilized cannabis plants produce less cannabinoids. 

These seeds are also hard to remove from cannabis products. Decades ago, people had to smoke cannabis with these seeds mixed in the flowers, resulting in a rather uncomfortable experience. The added time and labor to remove these seeds is costly for cannabis growers, and since seedless strains yield higher cannabinoids, it makes sense to grow sinsemilla instead.

Enjoy a variety of dabs and products for your convenience.

Risks of Growing Sinsemilla

Of course, growing sinsemilla comes with certain risks which are best handled by medical growers and dispensaries. The biggest risk is that the cannabis plant accidentally becomes fertilized. Pollen is hard to control, as it can travel for miles in the wind, so females in uncontrolled outdoors environments will likely produce seeds at some point. 

Additionally, certain sinsemilla plants can have a THC level of over 20%, so growers should be careful that their products are carefully measured and controlled, as many medical cannabis users require a more delicate balance of THC to CBD.

Why Waveseer Grows Sinsemilla

Because we can grow our products in controlled environments, the benefits of sinsemilla far outweigh the costs. Our products vary widely in THC and CBD content, thanks to our ability to produce flowers with high amounts of cannabinoids and tailor each product to your specific needs.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

Cannabis is one of the most exciting research topics for the 21st century. Every day, cannabis researchers learn more about how the plant interacts with our bodies and helps patients with chronic illness. While we have a lot to discover about how medical cannabis works, we know that it’s effective because it targets the endocannabinoid system. 

What is the endocannabinoid system? And how is it related to seemingly unrelated diseases, from multiple sclerosis to cancer? Let’s break down what makes medicinal cannabis so promising for researchers.

The Endocannabinoid System, Explained

The human body is a complex network of different systems that each have a specific role. The digestive system absorbs nutrients from food, the immune system protects the body against disease, etc. 

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is another system in the human body, though its role isn’t completely understood. The ECS wasn’t discovered until the 1990’s, as researchers were trying to learn more about how cannabis affects our cells. It turns out, there’s a whole bodily system that responds to cannabis!

Most researchers believe that the ECS is responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the body, which is the state of internal balance organisms must maintain to survive. 

More specifically, cell receptors that are linked to the ECS respond to the cannabinoids that are found in cannabis, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These receptors communicate to their respective cells what they need to do to maintain homeostasis. ECS receptors are found throughout the human body, though they are most prominent in two places: the central nervous system and immune cells.

How Does Cannabis Affect The Endocannabinoid System?

So, how does medical cannabis work? By enhancing your body’s innate ability to maintain homeostasis. 

The ECS has two different cell receptors, though some researchers speculate there are even more. These receptors, also known as CB1 and CB2 receptors, tell their respective cells to perform various functions. The body produces certain cannabinoids that target these receptors, such as the chemicals anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol. 

However, the substances in cannabis can also target these receptors. In the brain, CB1 receptors tell certain nerve cells to signal more or less frequently. This is why cannabinoids like THC can affect your mental health, because the brain cells that undergo endocannabinoid signaling are involved with memory, emotion, and perception.

In the immune system, CB2 receptors tell immune cells if the body is undergoing inflammation. This is why cannabinoids like CBD are associated with pain and inflammation relief. 

This process is the same way in which other medicines treat the body. Painkillers target nerve cell receptors, insulin targets the receptors that tell cells to take in glucose, etc. Thus, cannabis works by amplifying the body’s natural system for maintaining homeostasis and regulating mood.

Pros and Cons of Medical Cannabis

What are the long term effects of medical cannabis usage? Researchers are still uncovering the full body effects of cannabinoids and how they interact with the ECS. However, we know that most bodies can experience the therapeutic benefits of cannabis – provided they consult a medical professional and find a dose that works for them.

When taken property, cannabinoids can:

  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Regulates mood 
  • Improves sleep
  • Mitigates stress
  • Boosts metabolism
  • Fights cancer cells 
  • Maintains homeostasis in the cardiovascular, skeletal, and digestive systems

For some individuals, as well as patients who take the wrong dosage, cannabinoids may:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Impaired coordination and reaction time
  • Short-term cognitive difficulty 
  • Drowsiness and dizziness 
  • Respiratory issues, if smoked

Future of ECS Research

Cannabis is one of the most exciting research topics for the 21st century, and new studies are published every day uncovering how this plant affects the endocannabinoid system. While we still have a lot to learn, one thing is emerging from the data: cannabis is a way forward for medicine.

What is a Weed Hangover?

What is a Weed Hangover?

If you’ve ever ingested more cannabinoids than you intended, you might find yourself dealing with a “weed hangover” the next morning. Overconsuming cannabis products can certainly have uncomfortable effects on the body, with some comparing the “morning after” to being hungover on alcohol.

The good news is, a weed hangover is far less serious than an alcohol-induced hangover, and in fact, weed hangovers might not even exist. Let’s explore what this side effect of cannabis consumption really is, and how to prevent one from happening.

Symptoms of a Weed Hangover

A weed hangover shares symptoms with an alcoholic hangover, though thankfully, cannabis has a much less intense effect on the body. The following are symptoms you may experience if you consume too much cannabis: 

  • Dry mouth 
  • Dehydration
  • Red, irritated eyes 
  • Fogginess
  • Drowsiness 
  • Lack of attention, focus, and/or memory 

Researchers debate how many of these symptoms are caused by cannabis, and how much are caused simply by sleep deprivation or a lack of water intake. The research on weed hangovers doesn’t examine patients who take medically prescribed cannabis, so it’s unclear how much of this is caused by THC, an active component of cannabis.

Causes of a Weed Hangover

If cannabis can have a hangover effect on the body, it’s because of THC. THC binds to certain receptors in the body that cause these hangover effects. For example, THC temporarily binds to the glands that produce saliva, which is why cannabis consumption can give you dry mouth. THC can also cause temporary cognitive impairment, especially in large doses, which explains the “foggy” hangover feeling.

Many researchers argue that a weed hangover is actually just a prolonged high. THC can remain in the body for a while, especially if you consume an edible. An alcoholic hangover occurs because your body has spent too many resources removing alcohol from your system; since the THC from cannabis is still in your system, “hangover” might not be the correct term.

Enjoy a variety of dabs and products for your convenience.

How to Cure a “Weed Hangover”

Whatever the cause of a hangover, you can minimize the effects of prolonged THC exposure in a few different ways.

Regularly drinking water will help with the dryness and dehydration, and it might help circulate the THC out of your body. Additionally, eye drops can help with red eye, and caffeine can counteract the fogginess and cognitive impairment. Finally, moving around and getting exercise can help wake your body up and move the THC out.

If you’re taking medically prescribed cannabis, you likely have too high of a dose, especially if you experience a high for longer than anticipated. Be sure to drink plenty of water before consuming medicinal cannabis, and talk with your doctor if your dose causes you any discomfort – “weed hangover” or otherwise.

The Benefits of Legalizing Marijuana

The Benefits of Legalizing Marijuana

The United States has some catching up to do when it comes to cannabis legalization. As of July 2020, only 11 states and Washington, D.C. have legalized recreational cannabis. An additional 22 states allow some form of medicinal cannabis usage, but at the federal level, cannabis is still a Schedule I drug – preventing the nation from reaping the economic benefits of legalizing weed. 

Allowing for medicinal usage isn’t enough: fully legalizing cannabis could cause huge improvements to the health and prosperity of Americans, including those who don’t use cannabis products. Here’s how fully legalizing marijuana can change the nation for good.

The Economic Benefits of Legalizing Weed

Americans spend billions of dollars on cannabis every year, but because recreational usage is illegal in most states, both local and federal governments can’t benefit from cannabis sales. Legalizing cannabis would stimulate the American economy through the following avenues: 

Increased Tax Revenue 

Cannabis sales would directly fund public services. In Colorado, for example, taxes on all sales of legal cannabis fund the state’s education system. Since 2014, marijuana taxes have put more than $1.2b towards public schools in Colorado. Local governments could use cannabis taxes to fund other initiatives, from public goods to community revitalization. 

More Jobs 

Marijuana businesses create jobs – and lots of them. Nearly 250,000 U.S. employees work in cannabis growth, sales, and manufacturing, and many of those workers enjoy living wages. Currently, United States labor economists don’t count cannabis jobs toward data for unemployment, average wages, or GDP growth; including cannabis in job reports would give a more accurate window to the nation’s economy. 

Investment Opportunities 

Legalizing cannabis would result in a cascade of new marijuana businesses, many of which could provide long-term investment opportunities. Start-up entrepreneurs and stock market investors will likely watch for new IPOs in cannabis growth and research, further stimulating jobs and revenue in the industry. 

Savings on Police Expenses 

Police precincts across the nation spend billions of dollars annually to punish people who use or possess cannabis. Not only are important resources diverted towards prosecuting cannabis users, but it’s extremely expensive to house someone in prison, and many cannabis offenders can find themselves locked up from 6 months to 10 years. By legalizing cannabis, this money can be reinvested into local communities in more productive ways.

Additional Benefits of Legalizing Cannabis

Legalizing cannabis can profoundly benefit both the nation’s economy and the wellbeing of its residents. Ostensibly, national legalization would expand the pool of individuals who can consume medicinal cannabis. On top of increasing Americans’ access to the health benefits of cannabis, legalization would improve the country through the following:

Greater Testing Capabilities 

If cannabis were legalized, there would be much more funding for medical research on the plant. We know that cannabinoids, in certain ratios, can seriously improve a user’s health, comfort, and wellbeing. Future research would let us understand the chemical mechanisms of the endocannabinoid system, and it would help producers finetune their products. 

Better Cannabis Products

With better testing comes better products. Growers and manufacturers can improve their methods and products, allowing for cheaper production techniques and higher quality cannabis. Additionally, legalizing cannabis would allow people to purchase cannabis products from trusted retailers, rather than from local dealers – who may deal products that are laced, or of otherwise poor quality. 

Public Health 

Lastly, legalizing cannabis would greatly benefit public health, especially the health of drug addicts. Cannabis offers a potential avenue for weaning off of an opioid addiction, mitigating the withdrawal symptoms from opioids. With cannabis also used to treat individuals with cancer, epilepsy, and mental illness, public health would greatly benefit from legalizing marijuana.

Enjoy a variety of dabs and products for your convenience.

The Benefits of Legalizing Marijuana: A Summary

Legalizing cannabis would have profound benefits for the United States as a whole. U.S. citizens would be able to access the health benefits of cannabis nationwide, and these benefits would only improve with time as researchers better understand and manufacture the plant. Additionally, cannabis is a multi-billion dollar industry that could provide millions of jobs and thousands of investment opportunities. 

Clearly, there are significant social and economic benefits in legalizing weed. As the nation grows more accepting of cannabis usage, we should push both local and national leaders to consider cannabis legalization.

Is Cannabis Good or Bad for Mental Health

Is Cannabis Good or Bad for Mental Health

Is Cannabis Good or Bad for Anxiety?

If there’s one thing that researchers can’t agree on, it’s the effect that cannabis has on your mental health. We have a lot to learn before we understand how cannabis interacts with the brain, and although many cannabis users find that it helps control their anxiety, other users stay away from cannabis-induced paranoia. 

In truth, cannabis can affect your mental health both positively and negatively. Before we explain why this is, let’s take a look at what anxiety is, and what we know about the neuroscience of cannabis.

What is Anxiety?

In short, anxiety is a mental health disorder in which the body’s flight-or-fight response is over-reactive. An anxiety disorder can both amplify the stress you currently experience or manufacture new stressors that disrupt your ability to function. 

Anxiety presents itself through a whole family of disorders. General Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, Panic Disorder, PTSD, and OCD are all forms of dysfunctional anxiety, and while these disorders vary in degree and frequency, they make day-to-day life much harder to manage. 

Several different neurochemicals influence the development of an anxiety disorder, including serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, GABA, and histamine. The relationship between these neurochemicals and cannabis is not fully understood, but a relationship does exist – resulting in cannabis’s effects on mental health.

The Relationship Between Cannabis & Anxiety

The two active chemicals in cannabis, THC and CBD, affect the body in different ways. Both of them target brain receptors associated with the flight or fight response – the physical response associated with anxiety.

CBD, the “calming” chemical of cannabis, binds to CB1 receptors in the brain that lessen the flight or fight response. Many stress relief products today rely on CBD to ease the effects of anxiety. While CBD can’t cure anxiety, it can certainly calm the body down.

THC also targets CB1 receptors, but it has a different effect on the body. Known as the “psychoactive” component of cannabis, THC has a “bi-phasic” effect on anxiety. In low doses, THC reduces anxiety; in high doses, THC can increase feelings of paranoia and unease. This is because THC can overwhelm the amygdala, which is the part of the brain associated with fear and emotion. Although people can build their tolerance to THC, it should be consumed in moderation among people with anxiety.

Can Cannabis Treat Mental Illness?

The short answer: potentially. In some states, therapists are licensed to prescribe cannabis products to help treat anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Some researchers even argue that cannabis can cure addiction

Nonetheless, cannabis is not a standalone solution, and mental health treatment should involve the advice of a licensed therapist and/or psychiatrist. Cannabis can absolutely help people manage their day-to-day anxiety – but only with proper usage.

Methods and Effectiveness of Ethanol Extraction


In between cultivating cannabis and putting concentrate products on the shelf, there’s a bit of chemistry. Products that rely on concentrates – such as tinctures, sublinguals, and even edibles – need to have the active components of cannabis extracted from the leaf itself. We obviously aren’t baking cannabis leaves into brownies, so we have to find a way to take the cannabinoids out of the plant without the additional phytochemicals or potential toxins.

Thus, a little chemistry: manufacturers suspend their cannabis in a solution that can strip the plants of the oils without taking any chemicals that are harmful or sour the flavor of the products. Traditionally, cannabis plants have been suspended in either a solution of butane or a solution of supercritical CO2. Both of these options have their respective pros and cons:

Butane yields a relatively pure product but can be unstable and combust easily.

Supercritical CO2 is a lot more stable, but can sometimes yield harmful chemicals if it isn’t properly washed.

New Methods of Extracting

Within the last decade, cannabis growers have tried new methods of extracting the active ingredients out of the plant. One of these methods is to use ethanol as a means of extraction. The process works the same way as other methods: the plant material is placed in a solvent – in this case, ethanol – which will dissolve the active components of the plant into a concentrate.

Ethanol does this as well as other extraction methods, removing the cannabinoids and terpenes found in cannabis and dissolving them into a solution. Different solvents will draw different chemicals with them, so there’s usually a purifying process afterward. Ethanol, in this case, also dissolves the water-soluble components of the plant because it is a polar molecule. Water-soluble components include phytochemicals like chlorophyll, so additional purification needs to happen, otherwise you end up with a solution that’s less potent and tastes grassy.

Thus, ethanol extraction is not without its drawbacks. Ethanol extraction is much safer than butane and certainly more effective than supercritical CO2, and ethanol is also safe to consume according to the FDA. However, the process of purifying ethanol solutions can be quite costly, and even then, ethanol extracts don’t always meet the same quality as cannabinoids extracted safely through butane, unless done with well-funded equipment.

Nonetheless, ethanol extraction brings an exciting new option to the manufacturing of cannabis products, and with new research and developments coming out every day, the process is becoming much more effective at purifying cannabinoid solutions. Even though we’re experts at making cannabis products, producers at Waveseer far prefer using ethanol as a solvent, since accidents can happen with butane. With our combined expertise and advanced purification methods, Waveseer makes products that are potent, safe, and satisfactory to all who use them.

Importance of Terpenes in Medicinal Cannabis Products


THC and CBD are the main components of cannabis, but they aren’t the only ingredients worth considering. Cannabis gets its flavor and smell from chemicals called terpenes – naturally formed hydrocarbons that plants produce to ward off harmful bacteria and fungi. Cannabis  has naturally high levels of terpenes. 

All plants produce terpenes, which is how different plants evolve to have different flavors – the terpene composition of an apple is vastly different to that of garlic, for example.

140 Terpenes!

Cannabis has about 140 different terpenes, and different strains and growing methods produce a different cocktail of them. The composition of terpenes is what gives cannabis its distinct smell, and is also how different strains can be told apart. When terpenes are controlled for through specific growing methods, cannabis strains, and soil nutrition, the products made from that plant will also have a different flavor, which is how producers like Waveseer are able to make high-quality products that are pleasant to all senses.

However, terpenes are important for more than just their flavor. While THC is commonly regarded as the only psychoactive substance in cannabis, research suggests that terpenes also have an effect on the brain. Myrcene, for example, has a musty and herbal smell and is also reported to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. By contrast, linalool, a terpene with a chiefly lavender scent, might have properties that can boost immune function and restore cognitive function.

Of course, terpenes alone can’t cure diseases or be seen as a panacea. However, research into the medicinal properties of terpenes is exciting, as new studies suggest that terpenes can play a role in the treatment of both bodily and cognitive diseases, which is why certain terpenes and aromas are used in tandem with products that have specific medicinal purposes. At Waveseer, we understand the importance of terpenes in the plants and products we cultivate, and we stay up-to-date on all the new research involving these chemicals. The proof is in our products, so find a distributor that carries Waveseer today!

How LED Grow Lights Help Cannabis


As with any plant, a variety of conditions must be met to grow the best strains of cannabis. Soil and water are obvious examples, but one condition that’s often overlooked is the lighting. The source, color, and intensity of the light used to cultivate cannabis has a huge effect on the outcome of the plant, whether the growers rely on traditional sunlight or alternative light sources.

One increasingly popular light source is LED lights. LEDs used to be expensive energy suckers with little light coverage, but nowadays, they’re highly regarded as viable light sources for most agricultural products. So how, exactly, are LED grow lights used? And why do they work so well? First, let’s touch on how LEDs actually work.

Enjoy a variety of dabs and products for your convenience.

LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, produce light by energizing electrons. In simple terms:

Electrons are excited in a negatively charged area of a semiconductor. Those electrons then move to the positive area of that semiconductor, where they release their excess energy as light. 

Unlike other light sources such as incandescent light bulbs, LEDs produce a lot less heat, and they last much longer since they don’t rely on filaments. The result is a light source that’s energy-efficient and durable.

Recent advances in LED technology allow users to have more control over the color and intensity of the lighting. This is observed in all technology that uses LEDs, from television sets to your smartphone, but it’s especially useful for farmers.

Different Wavelengths

Different plants thrive in different wavelengths of light. Cannabis, for example, tends to thrive in bluer light during its vegetative stage, as blue light is more conducive to leaf growth, but in the flowering stage, red and yellow light encourages budding. The result is plants that are bigger, healthier, and more viable.

 Additionally, manipulating the light can yield different effects on the plant’s flavor or the experience of using the plant itself. We use LEDs at Waveseer too, and the proof is in our wide range of medicinal products available to distributors. With our combined expertise in cannabis cultivation, we know how to get the light just right for the products we put out.
