Many people find that they can avoid using pesticides altogether by growing cannabis indoors. Even more than traditional plants and fertilizers, growing cannabis indoors keeps out bugs and diseases. Many plants don’t even need pesticides, since they won’t have any pests or diseases on them at all. They actually do well in the heat of summer, and won’t produce much in the way of flowers (unless the conditions are too warm). It also works well in colder regions and in colder climate zones than warm climates.
