So, now that you are starting to buy your equipment and choose the space you are growing in, it comes time to choose your cannabis grow lights. Before you choose your grow lights for cannabis, you must take into account the amount of space you have available. Some marijuana grow lights work better for small-scale grow operations while others work far better for larger setups. Different types of grow lights consume different amounts of electricity, so it is best you calculate your watt requirements before you go ahead and choose your cannabis grow lights.
With LED grow lights, cannabis grows well as LEDs provide a wide spectrum of light and basically give your plants everything they need. Furthermore, when it comes to LED grow lights, cannabis cultivators will save money in the long run as they are relatively efficient and economical grow lights. LED grow lights don’t get too hot either, which is very important when choosing your lights as some can kick out enough heat to impact your plants negatively or even burn them.
Metal Halides (MH) and High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) Lights are the two other most popular choices. They are both cheaper than LEDs when it comes to up-front costs, however, in the long-run they consume considerably more power and kick out more heat.
