About the Research and Respondents

Research for the “2017 State of the Lighting Market” report was conducted online in August and September, among subscribers to Cannabis Business Times magazine and/or its e-newsletter who are located in the United States, Canada, or unknown North American locations.

Results are based on 294 people who own or work for an operation that cultivates cannabis indoors and/or in greenhouses with supplemental lighting. Cultivators who grow outdoors or in greenhouses without supplemental lighting were excluded from the results. The margin of error for percentages based on the 294 respondents who indicated they work a cultivation operation that grows cannabis is ±5.6 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
