Chemical compound

Carbon dioxide[ˈkɑːbən daɪˈɒksaɪd]


Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the common gases on our planet. Plants use CO2 in their light-dependent, food-making process, known as photosynthesis.

More CO2 in the grow room air stimulates cannabis development, so carbon dioxide functions similarly as a performance enhancer for cannabis.

Carbon dioxide has an effect on plant morphology, causing portions of the plant to become denser, compact, and less spindly, allowing the flowers to grow larger while the stems can support the weight. When CO2 is employed, floral development is accelerated, and flowers may appear earlier.
