Cannabis Odor Control for Grow Rooms & Cultivation

Remove odors from growing cannabis, naturally and safely.

Grow Room Odor Control

When in the flowering phase, marijuana plants produce a pungent smell that is often unpleasant. This skunk-like smell can be amplified when grow rooms or cultivation areas are handling a large amount of the crop. The main component that causes the unpleasant odor is a terpene called myrcene, which could be pretty high in some strains of marijuana.

The odor can become so unpleasant that nearby residents often complain about the smell, which can be detected more than a mile from the cultivation area or grow room. Local governments have increased efforts to crack down on the odor, facilities often need a cannabis odor mitigation plan before they can open. However, existing grow rooms are subjected to hefty fines if their odors are detectable or if nearby residents complain. Cannabis odor complaints have increased by as much as 87% in certain areas.

To combat the odors and fines that come with them, Ecosorb offers natural and effective cannabis odor control solutions for green rooms, grow rooms, and more.

Cannabis Odor Solution Challenges

Finding an effective cannabis odor mitigation method is challenging.

  • Most municipalities now restrict how commercial cannabis grow operations handle odors.
  • Large-scale ventilation systems that pump untreated air outdoors can be prohibited in some urban areas.
  • Industrial filtration systems can be costly to install, operate and maintain.
  • Enclosing a greenhouse can cause overheating and harmful rising of humidity.
  • Some grow room odor control solutions require the use of water to distribute, adding additional costs and equipment (especially in areas of water conservation)
  • Multiple partners are often needed for equipment, materials, setup and maintenance

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Ecosorb CNB 100?

Ecosorb CNB Formulations are a natural odor eliminator designed for cannabis grow room, greenhouse, or processing facility odor control. It’s most commonly used as a liquid concentrate and delivered by vaporization mist around exhaust fans to scrub odors from escaping air. CNB 100 includes no masking agents, synthetic perfumes, harmful chemicals, VOC’s, or unsafe ingredients.

How does it work?

Our blend of natural plant oils eliminates odor-causing chemical compounds in cannabis — including cannabinoids, terpenes, and sesquiterpenes — without the drawbacks of other odor mitigation techniques. By breaking down odor molecules, it removes all smells from the air. Learn more about the science behind odors and CNB 100 in our helpful e-book.

What would I need to equip my facility?

Additionally, the distribution of Ecosorb requires no added water, thanks to advanced Vapor Phase technology. You just need the dispersion equipment and Ecosorb CNB 100, designed, engineered, installed, and maintained by Ecosorb’s odor control experts.

How is it different from carbon filtration?

Carbon filtration is used inside a facility to scrub air of odors. Ecosorb CNB 100 solutions are used outside a facility to eliminate remaining odors from escaping exhaust. When paired together, the combination effectively eliminates all odors.

Does it smell? Will my neighbors know I’m using it?

Because it is made from natural plant extracts, the aroma produced by CNB 100 is natural-smelling. However, as it works, CNB 100 eliminates all odors at the molecular level, including those from the product. What you’re left with is no detectable odors.
