Cannabis uses a similar amount of water per acre as other agricultural crops in California: Researchers

A new study that delves into the water usage of cannabis farms in California shows that farmers use a similar amount of water per acre as other agricultural crops in the state. Researchers found that growers of the plant used about 5,000 gallons of water per acre for plant growth, while farmers of tomatoes, broccoli, and grapes used about 3,500 gallons of water per acre.

Researchers from the University of California, Davis, and the University of California, Santa Cruz, have found that California’s legal cannabis farms use as much water to produce cannabis as other crops like cotton, almonds, and tomatoes. The study, which was published in the Journal of Hydrology, examined the water use of cannabis farms in California, and found that pot farms use the same amount of water as other crops.
