Cannabis cultivations are commonplace throughout the UK, but their scale can vary from a few plants grown in one room, to satisfy a personal habit, to cannabis 'factories' operated for large profits. The criminal charges brought and the penalties imposed will depend on the yields of cannabis that could be produced. It is therefore essential that any yield calculations are best estimates and not second guesses.
Cannabis cultivation and production - Case example
Person found growing cannabis plants at their home address; sample plants seized and sent for forensic examination. Forensic report confirms the plants are cannabis and suggests that the potential yield of cannabis they could produce exceeds that needed for personal use. Based on those findings the defendant is charged with cultivation/production of cannabis and possession with intent to supply the same.
