   (F)   Indoor grow lights used for cannabis cultivation do not exceed 1,000 watts per light.
   (G)   Adverse impacts of cannabis cultivation are mitigated so that a public nuisance, as defined by Cal. Civ. Code § 3480, does not exist, including but not limited to adverse impacts of odors or the use or storage of hazardous materials, processes, products, or wastes.
