Cannabis and Cannabis products are known for their characteristic and strong odours. The industry is heavily regulated and at the federal level, there are specific technical requirements to prevent odours.
Standard technologies for the industry include carbon filtration, neutralization, masking agents and specially designed ventilation systems. The field is still new and technologies continue to evolve; it is important to deal with a credible consultant who has current knowledge of technologies relevant to this sector.
You may be involved with a Cannabis facility that is compliant with the federal regulations but still be subject to odour complaints from the surrounding areas. In most jurisdictions in Canada, the owner is required to address these complaints.
At Pinchin, we have in house expertise in the design of ventilation and odour systems specific for the Cannabis sector. We operate one of the few odour laboratories in North America and are uniquely equipped to help you prevent or mitigate nuisance odours that could be the cause of complaints about your facility.
