Growing cannabis in a greenhouse with LED lights empowers you to provide the cannabis plant with the right amount and intensity of light.
The biggest benefit of the use of cannabis greenhouse LED lighting, is that you can control the light levels the plants receive. The time of day or season will no longer influence your yield. Due to the water cooling, the indoor facility doesn’t heat up and the climate remains stable. This is beneficial because the lighting hours can increase so the plants receive more light and that means more yield!
Consistent optimum level of light
The use of LED grow lights for medical cannabis is not common for everyone in the branche, but the production of medicinal cannabis can perfectly be executed indoors with LED lights.
This specific crop needs a lot of light: at least 12 hours a day. It’s no surprise that cannabis can endure much light, but it doesn’t like too much heat. Even though all LED grow lights are beneficial for the growth of cannabis plants, Oreon’s cannabis greenhouse light system uses a unique water cooling technology. This ensures that the electronics and LEDs are cooled continuously. This leads to a high quality product and savings on energy costs.
Perfect growth conditions and prevent botrytis
The use of LED lights for growing medicinal cannabis, enables you to create the perfect circumstances for the plants. You can adjust the light output to the plant’s growth phase. The seeds need lighting from the moment they have germinated, but cannabis plants in the vegetation stage need a lower light intensity or different spectrum than plants in a flowering stage. Botrytis causes a soft rot that damages cannabis buds during growth and after harvest. It usually occurs when temperature and humidity levels are high. With a sudden drop in temperature, the humidity from the air condenses and descends like water on the plant. This could occur when lights are turned off. Oreon's LED grow lights do not radiate much heat, keeps the temperature stable and therefore a better controllable RH. Growing cannabis indoors with LED lights empowers you to provide the cannabis plant with the right temperature and amount and intensity of light.

A relatively new name on the scene, Advanced Platinum is selling professional LED grow lights for less money than many other LED lamps of the same quality. Despite the cheaper price tag, they have a wider light spectrum than most LEDs, which helps plants grow faster with fewer of the leaf problems and deficiencies than you see with LED models that only have red and blue diodes. They’re making a good name for themselves in the cannabis growing community because their LED models are getting really great results when it comes to both quality and yields.
New growers may be asking why they need to spend the money on LED lights for weed and can’t simply use a basic desk lamp to save on initial startup costs.
Not all grow lights were created equal. Different cannabis grow lights release different types of light.
While LED lights require a bigger initial investment, they have shown themselves to be well worth the investment: more efficient, better for the environment, and more cost-effective.
Understanding cannabis growth requirements and the science behind weed plant lights can enable you to replicate natural light, aid plant photosynthesis, and ultimately lead to a higher quality of cannabis. It will also help you select a high-quality product for your cannabis growing needs rather than wasting your money on cheap, low-quality pot-growing lights.
How Cannabis Plants React to LED Lights
By using the best LED grow lights for marijuana, growers will discover enhanced properties and exceptional quality in their harvests.
Why are grow lights so effective at elevating the harvests of cannabis cultivators? On a basic level, cannabis plants are like any other plants in that they require light energy to carry out photosynthesis.
For this reason, LED lights are necessary to meet the specialized needs of a cannabis plant. A high-end LED grow light for cannabis is designed with every growth stage in mind.
What are the Best Indoor Grow Lights for Cannabis?
LED lights have even encouraged some U.S. cities to issue tax breaks to commercial growers who upgrade to these lights.
We highly recommend choosing an LED light with adjustable spectrums so you can customize your grow cycle and ensure you get the most out of every harvest.
