" Budweiser Select Budweiser Select, or Bud Select is a light pale lager that contains 4.3% ABV and 99 calories per 12 US fl oz serving (1,170 kJ/L).[7] Anheuser-Busch has aggressively promoted Budweiser Select. Its slogan was "The Real Deal". The company hired Jay-Z as a spokesman for the brand. Budweiser Select 55 A version of Budweiser Select that contains 55 calories per 12 US fl oz serving (650 kJ/L) is "a direct counterstrike to Miller's MGD 64" according to Anheuser-Busch officials.

Budweiser currently claims that it is the lightest beer in the world. The food energy in both Miller's MGD 64 and Budweiser's Select 55 have been reduced simply by lowering the fermentables content. MGD 64 has only 2.8% alcohol content and some Select 55 states "alcohol content not more than 3.2% by weight / 4% by volume", possibly to allow its sale in areas where that is the limit. The actual alcohol content of "55" is reported to be 2.

4% ABV; by comparison, most American lagers have around 5%. Budweiser 66 Budweiser Brew No. 66 is a 4% alcohol by volume lager that is brewed and distributed in the United Kingdom by InBev UK Limited.

Bud Extra A beer with caffeine, ginseng, guarana and alcohol. It contains 6.

6% ABV. It was marketed as a caffeinated malt beverage, similar to Sparks.

Also available in Green Apple and Tropical Fruits versions.

Discontinued Budweiser American Ale Budweiser American Ale debuted in September 2008. The beer claims to offer complex taste without much bitterness.

American Ale is the first beer under the Budweiser name that is brewed with a top fermenting yeast.

The beer's darker color is a departure from the other Budweiser brands. Production was discontinued prior to 2015. Budweiser Brew Masters' Private Reserve Budweiser Brew Masters' Private Reserve is an all-malt lager with a honey color and robust taste. It is based on a "Budweiser brewmaster holiday tradition of collecting the richest part of the batch which is tapped to the brew kettles to toast the holiday season.

"[12] Bud Dry Bud Dry was introduced nationally in the U.S. in April 1990[13] with the slogan of "Why ask why? Try Bud Dry." It was originally successful in test markets and was expected to be a popular beer with the rise in light lager popularity. Dry beer is a form of pale lager where the sugars are more fully fermented to give a less sweet beer. It is also known as the Diät-Pils style. However, after the introduction of Bud Ice in 1994, Bud Dry was not heavily marketed.

Production was discontinued in December 2010. Bud Ice Light Bud Ice Light contains 5.0% ABV and 115 calories per 12 US fl oz serving (1,360 kJ/L). It undergoes fractional freezing, which Bud Light does not undergo. It was discontinued in 2010. Bud Light Golden Wheat On October 5, 2009, Budweiser officially released Bud Light Golden Wheat, a response to the increase in the amount of wheat beers produced from craft brewers around the country.

[15] Michelob Michelob Ultra on a supermarket shelf Michelob is a 4.7% ABV pale lager developed by Adolphus Busch in 1896 as a "draught beer for connoisseurs".[16] In 1961, Anheuser-Busch produced a pasteurized version of Michelob which allowed legal shipment of the beer across state lines. Bottled beer began to be shipped soon after, and the brand was introduced in cans in 1966. Bottled Michelob was originally sold in a uniquely shaped bottle named the teardrop bottle because it resembled a water droplet.

The teardrop bottle was awarded a medal from the Institute of Design in 1962. Five years later the bottle was redesigned for efficiency in the production line. This bottle was used until 2002 when it was dropped in favor of a traditional bottle. The teardrop bottle was used again from January 2007 to October 2008. Brand variation The company introduced Michelob Light in 1978. Michelob Classic Dark was made available in 1981 in kegs, with a bottled version following three years later.

In 1991, Michelob Golden Draft was introduced to compete against Miller Genuine Draft in the Midwest. 1997 saw the introduction of several specialty beers under the Michelob marquee. These include: Michelob Honey Lager Michelob Pale Ale Michelob Marzen Michelob Pumpkin Spice Ale Michelob Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale AmberBock is a 5.1% ABV amber lager which uses roasted black barley malt in the ingredients, and which received a World Beer Cup Bronze Medal in 1998.

From the beginning, the specialty beers have had a very limited distribution. The chief outlet has been through a "holiday sampler pack" produced during the Christmas holiday season. Other specialty beers that are no longer in production include Michelob Hefeweizen and Michelob Black & Tan. Some (notably Michelob AmberBock) have subsequently gone into larger production, while others have not. The brewery continues to experiment with specialty beers—in 2005 an oak-aged vanilla beer was sold under the Michelob logo, available in single pints.

In 2006 Michelob added a chocolate beer to the oak-aged vanilla Celebrate holiday season beer released a year earlier. Michelob also brewed Michelob Bavarian Style Wheat and Michelob Porter for its "holiday sampler pack". In 2007, Michelob launched its Seasonal Specialty Line. These include: Michelob Bavarian Wheat (summer) Michelob Marzen (fall) Michelob Porter (winter) Michelob Pale Ale (spring) The early 21st century saw in the U.

S. a demand for diet beer similar to that of the early 1970s, and in 2002 the Michelob line responded with the introduction of Michelob Ultra, advertised as being low in carbohydrates. Later Michelob Ultra Amber, a darker, more flavorful beer, was added to this sub-line. According to a report by Beer Marketer's Insights and published by USA Today on December 9, 2013, sales of Michelob Light declined by nearly 70% between 2007 and 2012.

The article listed Michelob Light as one of "nine beers many Americans no longer drink."[17] Michelob 5% alcohol; Michelob Golden Draft 4.7% alcohol; Michelob Golden Draft Light 4.3% alcohol; Michelob Ultra 4.2% alcohol; Michelob Ultra Amber 4.0% alcohol; Michelob: ULTRA Lime Cactus A fruit-infused light pilsner with natural lime flavor and a floral essence derived from the cactus; Michelob: ULTRA Pomegranate Raspberry A pilsner with a berry aroma, raspberry flavor, and a hint of pomegranate; Michelob: ULTRA Tuscan Orange Grapefruit A pilsner with fresh juicy orange notes and a slight pink-grapefruit finish.

All fruit flavors have the following nutrition content: 107 calories, 6.0g carbs, 0.5g protein and 0.0g fat, per 12 oz bottle. Marketing Advertisements for Michelob Ultra feature people engaged in sporting activities. The Michelob ULTRA Open at Kingsmill and Michelob Ultra Futures Players Championship, were sponsored by Michelob Ultra. Michelob Ultra serves as a presenting sponsor of the Tour of Missouri bicycle race and sponsors the King of the Mountains jersey.

Michelob also sponsors the Rugby Super League, and many of its teams have shirt sponsorships with its AmberBock brand. PGA Tour player Sergio García is sponsored by Michelob. Lance Armstrong signed on October 6, 2009 a three-year agreement to become Michelob Ultra's new spokesperson and ambassador, but was dropped by the company in 2012 after being accused of using performance-enhancing drugs.[18] Michelob sponsored several episodes of the Diggnation podcast.

The hosts, Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht, sampled the beer during the show and several episodes included interviews with the company's head brew-master to discuss the different products that can be found in the sampler packs. Also, an episode of the show was filmed inside the Michelob brewery. Michelob is most notably famous for its late-1980s TV commercials that used the slogan, "The night belongs to Michelob", which centered on its "night" theme and used songs that had the word "night" or a form of the word "night" in its title, including "Move Better in the Night" by Roger Daltrey, "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" by Genesis, "Don't You Know What the Night Can Do?" by Steve Winwood and a new recording of "After Midnight" by Eric Clapton.

Our trusted reviews are based on careful testing in real world situations to create our Best LED Grow Lights Reviews guide. All of our tests are based on growing medical marijuana which means our reviews are 100% related to your led panel or hid lights needs. It doesn’t matter if you are upgrading your current grow room or building ground up, LED offers the greatest increase in technology for growing in decades.

It is now possible to toss out your old high energy consumption bulbs and replace them with energy efficient more powerful LED grow lights. Thats why we’ve tested the best LED Grow lights and created the Best LED Grow Lights Reviews for 2018: Top LED grow lights. I’ve read in many recent posts about people calling LED grow lights, a led bulb. This is not the correct terminology. Led grow lights are created from small electronic components called light emitting diodes.

It is these diodes that are used in led light fixtures that will greatly help you grow medical marijuana. You just can’t compare a metal halide or hid lights to the new breed of led grow lights. We ranked our list of LED grow lights based on the results they showed. costs and features they offer. Advanced Platinum Series P900 LED Grow Light – Editor’s Choice The Advanced Platinum Series from PlatinumLED LED grow lights use full-spectrum light technology to keep your grow room and plants cooler while meeting all your cannabis plants photo synthetic requirements.

The P900 offers their trademark technology which provides “3x the light intensity” of other LED grow lights. Buying in to LED is a big investment regardless of energy savings so we’ve researched all the Top LED grow lights on the market and created this top LED lights for the money list. All the picks in our list have been tested so that we could provide accurate and qualified top picks for the best LED grow lights on the market today.

We’ve also included a buying guide which explains all the terminology and what you should look for in a LED Grow Light. Any of the LED grow lights that we have reviewed are suitable for indoor grow tent kits. A PAR rating you can’t beat The P900 series grow light also features the highest PAR per watt rating of any other LED grow light available on the market. Remember that LED grow lights are not measured in watts but PAR which stands for Photo-synthetically active radiation which are the active light bands for plant photosynthesis.

The best indoor grow light closest mimics real sunlight. The P900 Platinum series grow light achieves this by providing 12 bands of light wavelengths including infrared and ultraviolet which can’t be seen by the human eye. This LED grow light provide not only the correct light wavelengths for all stages of cannabis growth but the correct intensity of light for incredible growth results in both the vegetative and flowering stages.

A flip of the switch is all it takes for full spectrum led grow light With the P900 a flick of the switch provides the perfect light intensity for vegetation, another flip of the switch increases the intensity for blooming and flowering cycles. Another break though in the PlatinumLED series lights are the LED focusing lenses. These lenses act like mini reflectors to send the maximum amount of light deep into the canopy of your grow.

Getting light deep into your plants encourages explosive plant growth. The initial investment in LED systems is higher than traditional bulb and ballast options but over time the investment in LED grow lights will pay off because of the massive savings in electricity. The P900 can replace a 1000-watt High pressure sodium light and only use a power draw of 515 watts of electricity. This means that the energy savings is close to 50%.

The average cost of a 1000-Watt HPS light is 12 cents every hour, this doesn’t include the cost of the fans needed to cool these extremely hot lights. Overall the P900 gives the same intensity of light as well as full-spectrum light at half the price of a traditional HPS bulb. The P900 provides 4×6 feet of vegetative growth quality light and 3×5 feet (18 inches above your plants) at full blooming intensity of 515 watts.

Like traditional incandescent grow lights raising and lowering the grow light increases and lowers the intensity of the light reaching your foliage. The P900 also provides the “Veg” and “Flower” switch as well. How many plants can you grow with a platinum series p900? You can grow between 12 and 24 plants at a time depending on which growth stage they are in. Adult cannabis plants use 1 square foot of space in a 3-gallon grow pot meaning that in a 4×6 grow area you could fit 24 plants.

If you plan to keep your plants in the same grow area from vegetative to flowering you could safely grow 18 plants in a 4×6 area with our platinum series p900 on full intensity. The PlatinumLED LED grow light system in not an entry level budget LED grow light system. Its power and features are leaps ahead of most LED grow light systems and even include the ability to function on 110V or 220V as well as 85V to 260V power systems.

The Final Word: This is an investment and the advanced platinum series p900 includes a fantastic warranty. They stand by their products with a 90-day money back guarantee and a whopping 5-year full warranty on the system itself. That’s 5 years of growing worry free!

That’s at least 5 years of trouble free growing of the biggest crops you’ve ever grown. The P600 is built with rugged components and has a vegetative coverage area of 2×5 feet.

Hit the magic “bloom” switch and you’ll blast up to 10 mature plants with flower growth intensity light. The advanced platinum series p300 provides the highest PAR per lumen output compared to any other grow light available in the market today. That’s fancy technical speak meaning the Platinum P300 provides 3X the light intensity of other grow lights available on the market. Setup the advanced platinum series p300 in a 3×2 foot tent our grow closet at a height of 18-inches and you’ll be able to take up to 7 plants from their Veg state to full flowering without changing anything but flipping a switch when it’s time to bloom your cannabis plants.

The light intensity is like a 400-Watt HPS light and only uses about 180 Watts of power – making it super energy efficient like its big brothers the P600 and P900. Like the larger models the platinum series p300 includes the same high-end features growers want. Don’t forget that the PlatinumLED provides 11 band full-spectrum LED grow light that provides your cannabis plants with the photosynthetic energy they need to flourish including both UV and IR light.

The P300 is composed of 3 Watt LEDs and provides 60-degree and 90-degree lenses which focus the light for more intensity. The Final Word: The chips in this lamp are also replaceable and another reason for the slightly higher price tag. This means you can always keep that 400-watt output, even when a chip blows. Just order the one chip and replace it when it arrives from the manufacturer. With a 5-year guarantee, PlatinumLED offers complete security to their customers.

What is instantly apparent when you see the Lightworks 440 LED grow light turned on is the bright red color emitted from the 5Watt LEDS, all 88 of them shining brightly. Most of the other lights we have tested are driven by 3-Watt LEDs which provides a less intense light. The LED’s are emitting deep blue in the 430-460 nm and deep red in the 650 to 670 nm levels. This helps achieve maximum light absorption in your cannabis plants.

This range of light also handles the plants vegetative stage as well as flowering stage very well without switching lighting equipment. The intense light is focused at 90 degrees by jewel-quality glass which directs the light deep into your plant canopy. Though the LEDs provide ample light wave lengths for all stages of growth the California Lightworks 440W LED grow light also includes two 15-Watt UV-B tubes to enhance your flowering stage growth.

UV-B light is not included in any other lighting system we’ve tested and this wave length of light truly helps grow fantastic crystal covered buds.

The secret is the double 5-Watt chips which are laid out in a grid pattern.

These chips are literally more than twice as bright as your average LED grow light. I haven’t seen this sort of technology before on any of the other lights we’ve reviewed, and I have to say I’m excited to see more of it in the future. These double chips provided very bright uniform light with a PAR range of about 660 directly below the led grow unit. The LEDs used to build this unit have a life time expectancy of 50,000 hours and to ensure that the grow light continues to perform even if one LED burns out.

This is known as a “Zener protector”, it allows the unit to continue working even when one light is burned out, think of it like a string of Christmas Tree lights. Just because one light goes out doesn’t mean the whole strong is done for. The Final Word: The lighting unit in this taking less room in your grow area and comes in a solid enclosure with built in high speed fans which keep the whole grow light unit cool.

First you must make sure that you have the appropriate light strength and intensity to cover your grow area.

For example, if you are growing in a 2×6 foot tent you need to pick a light with significant enough power to provide even light intensity over that 2×6 Foot print. A 1-foot square growing area requires at least 32 watts of power. You can easily calculate your wattage needs by multiplying your square footage x 32 Another question you must ask yourself about buying the best light is if you require a multi-purpose light which can switch from vegetation to blooming modes.

If you don’t get a multi-purpose grow light you will need to supplement your main light with other lamps to maximize the flowering stage of growth.   New technology for plant grow lights have changed the way people grow indoors. A person can now grow many more plants because the energy consumption of LED is low enough that it won’t cause any questions with your hydro company. LED’s also have a usable life of about 100X longer than traditional light bulb options which means you aren’t replacing expensive bulbs every 2nd or 3rd grow.

Other great features of modern LED grow lights is the massive reduction of heat generated by the units. LED lighting is so much more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs that much less energy is wasted as generated heat, instead that energy is directly focused on the correct wave lengths of light needed by your plants. Higher end LED’s also provide the option of Vegetative and flowering light options with the flip of a switch, no more changing light bulbs.

It’s time to look at the best LED grow lights available for the money that best suit indoor cannabis grows. Check out our 420 Grow Guides These are the most important options to keep in consider when choosing an LED grow lights: How much area needs to be covered: The first item you must be mindful of is the total area that you need to cover with light. All lights have a different coverage fields.

This area of coverage relates directly to the size of your grow area and the plants that live within that area. Knowing this you can pick the best LED light option for your space and which LED will give the best coverage for that area. If your space is larger than your light field coverage of your LED lights you will need to introduce additional light sources; whether that be more LED lighting or supplementary incandescent lighting more lights can be placed adjacent to each other to fill in low coverage areas.

The PPF, PPFD, PAR and DLI measurements: What do these terms mean and how do they affect your grow? You’ll have to bear with this next section which is very technical but also very important to your grow. These are absolute terms that you will want to be familiar with if you are deciding on a LED grow light. I’ll keep it as simple and brief as possible. Never listen to sales material that refers to LED light in Watts as this measurement is completely irrelevant to LED grow lights.

PPF stands for Photosynthetic Photon Flux: which measures the amount of light produced by a light source in a second. PPF does not signal how much measured light lands on your plants or other surfaces. The next term is PPFD: which stands for Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density. This measurement is the direct relationship of how much of the generated light reaches your plants. More technically it is the number of photo synthetically photons that fall on a surface each second.

DLI or Daily Light Integral: is the third measurement which is the total amount of light delivered to a plant each day. An easy way to think of this measurement is your plants total daily dose of light. LED grow lights that provide a higher average DLI can do so in less time than a standard light which means you can increase your plant growth by extending your light exposure. PAR stands for photo-synthetically: active radiation which is light emitted in the electromagnetic spectrum between 400 and 700 nm.

Plant growth phases: When growing with incandescent lighting different light bulbs are needed for the vegetative and flowering stages of your plants life cycle. High end LED grow lights provide both types of light with the simple flip of a switch. This can be achieved because the LED grow light contains a mixture of different wave length options which can be emitted by the LED drivers. This makes LED the easy choice for your grow light.

Your Budget: To get the best LED light for your budget consider the features we’ve discussed. Of course, the more you can spend the better the quality of the lighting and features you will get. When on a budget focus on selecting the led grow light that most closely fits your grow area foot print. Image powered by Plazilla.com Find out the Health Benefits of Marijuana Why update an outdated system to a full-spectrum LED grow light Why do I need a full-spectrum LED panel? LED full spectrum lights are new to the market so many growers are unfamiliar with these systems and their strengths.

Traditional grow lights are not full spectrum. When your grow switches from vegetative to flowering your lighting needs to change as well because traditional lights only provide narrow color spectrum of light. Moving to LED full- spectrum lighting is a game changer. Full spectrum lights are a massive jump ahead in growing technology because they mimic real sunlight conditions. These lights contain all the light spectrum’s related to growing and omit light spectrum’s with no value.

Full-spectrum LED grow lights provide: Higher flower yields Flowers which contain higher amounts of THC They are much less costly to run and can hide your growing foot print from your hydro provider They run cool so your plants won’t be slowed down by excessive heat Red blue light LED grow lights last over 50,000 hours so you don’t need to worry about replacing your bulbs every few grows. If you are in the market for grow lighting or have the budget to replace existing lighting you should consider updating to a full-spectrum LED grow light.

It is even more important than wearing your sunglasses on a bright day outside.

The energy produced by indoor lights is very high and since our proximity to these indoor growing lights is small the need for high end UV blockers is needed to protect your eyes from cataracts and other eye issues. Don’t be a dummy when it comes to your eye care. You will damage your eyes over a short time without using protective UV sunglasses. Nutrients, are an absolute necessity to grow large yield plants with high THC concentrations.

Nutrients affect all phases of growth from rooting to flowering and therefore require different nutrients during these stages. That’s why I’ve been a fan of Dutchpro for years. Their nutritional, all in one package provides everything needed for rooting, green plant growth and most importantly for the blooming stage. Feed your buds right and they will be bigger, stronger and taste better. Grow tent.

 Even if you are growing in a room or closet currently or just starting out you should strongly consider a mylar grow tent. These tents come in all sizes and can fit a room or even a closet. Using a tent will help you increase your control over the plants environment. This means it can block out extra light sources during dark periods and can prevent grow light leakage when your lighting is blasting.

The reasons don’t stop there. Indoor gardeners must control humidity and prevent bugs are huge benefits to using a tent. As well tents come with assorted openings which fit around plugs and air ducts without letting light or air escape into your room. Let’s not forget it keeps the stink in! I like to use a tent that is at least 60” to 70” inches tall to allow for light movement as your plants mature.

Anything less than 60” will restrict the height of your plants. Remember that the size of your growth space is directly related to the size and spread of your light source. Buying a tent too big for your lighting is just a waste. Light meter. Let there be light, on your plants. How do you know if you have enough light, or if the intensity of the light is too strong or too little? Every grower experienced or new requires skill and precision to grow a top-level product.

A light meter will determine if you have enough light in your room and if the intensity of the light at plant level is strong enough or two strong for proper growth.  Don’t let your plants under perform or even worse burn, use a light meter to be sure. Thermometer and hygrometer. Controlling the environment of your grow area is critical for healthy plant growth, avoiding common pests and preventing mold and mildew.

If your grow area is to moist your will find that mold and pests could start to develop and once they do they are incredible hard to control and eradicate. In general, you want to keep the relative humidity to between 40 and 60% with your lights on temperatures reaching between 72F and 82.5 or between 22C and 28 C. During the flowering stage humidity must be reduced to between 40 and 50%. Charcoal filters and exhaust systems play in extremely important role in plant health as well as indoor odor control.

The moist and fragrant air from within your grow area should be exchanged for fresh air at a rate of at least one cycle per minute. By using the charcoal filter system with an exhaust fan, you will remove 99% of the smell generated by your growing plants. Even if the air is exhausted into your home there will be no smell from this exchanged air. I currently vent two large tents directly into my basement and have zero smell issue.

If possible venting outside is the ideal way to go. Small fans must be used within your grow area to move air around your plants. This will prevent burning due to concentrated heat from your lighting system. Even when using LED lighting which produces much less heat multiple small fans are recommended Another benefit from Air flow on plants is that it increases the strength of the plant mater by causing the growth of thicker more sturdy stems and leaves.

Sturdy plant growth will in turn help produce increased plant and flower size. Water purification. Just as important as plant nutrients water quality is one of the easiest ways to help grow faster bigger and stronger plants and flowers. Removing chemical pollutants from tap water such as Chlorine is critical. You have options to achieve this goal. You can either purchase spring water or reverse osmosis filtered water for large grows or do what I do, get yourself a Brita 10 cup water purifier.

It isn’t enough water to take care of a large grow but 1 or 2 of these water filters can produce enough filtered water for 8 to 12 plants. PH Balance. Even small and new growers should be checking the PH balance of their water and nutrient mix. Depending on where you are and where your water comes from you could see a PH balance ranging from 6.5 to 8.5. Marijuana plants need to be in the 5.5 to 6.

5 range to ensure normal uptake of nutrients from the soil to the root system. Learn more about Grow tools Click Here Here’s our FAQ about LED grow lights. If you’re new to growing, or just want to brush up, enjoy! What is a LED Grow Light? Let’s start with a little intro about LED grow lights. LED: that stands for “light emitting diode” Grow: it helps plants to grow best when they have been planted indoors Light: it provides light energy that will mimic the way the sunlight would have affected these plants when grown outdoors Wavelength: The spectrum of color being produced by your LED’ How many Watts of LED power are needed to compare with HID lighting? 1 watt of LED to 2 watts of HID PPFD: (photosynthetic photon flux density).

PPFD is a measure of the number of photons in the 400-700nm range of the visible light spectrum that fall on a square meter of target area per second. What distance should my LED be from my plants: This distance will depend on if your plants are in a vegetative state or if they are in a flowering state. In general, 24” is a good starting point for Vegetative plants and for flowering the LED should be lowered to 18” to increase the intensity of the light reaching the plant.

Do LED grow lights enhance crop growth: Yes, for two main reasons. Because these lights produce both red and blue spectrum light your plants have more usable light energy to use for photosynthesis. Next LED’s produce significantly lower heat levels. Heat can slow the growth process, burn and dry out your plants. How Long do LED grow lights last: The expected life time for LED lights that have not been over heated is between 50,000 and 100,000 hours.

How do tiny LEDs produce enough usable energy to supply cannabis plants with enough photons to support photosynthesis? Can LED’s produce healthy plants and even more importantly can it provide the energy needed for these plants to flower? Image by energygain.co.uk Powerful lighting to grow your cannabis plants In the past, we used HPS lights (high pressure sodium) to provide the light energy required to feed cannabis plants.

That energy usage was measured in Watts because the electricity input was directly related to the total light intensity output. LED has made this measurement obsolete even though many makers of LED grow lights continue to use Watts in their marketing literature. The accurate term of measurement for an LED grow lights intensity is now known as PAR. PAR stands for photosynthetically active radiation which is light emitted in the electromagnetic spectrum between 400 and 700 nm.

(Nano Meters) A light-emitting diode (LED) is a two-lead semiconductor light source. It is a p–n (positive/negative) junction diode that emits light when activated. When enough voltage is applied to the leads, electrons can recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. LED grow lights use a combination of light colors to provide plants with the needed usable energy to vegetate and bloom.

While lighting containing more blue wavelengths support better vegetative growth the introduction of red wavelengths supports blooming and flowering. In addition to red light IR (infrared) are used to greatly increase the flowering of plants. Multi Wave Length Light Higher quality modern LEDs are now able to provide most of the known useful wavelengths for plant growth with the flip of a switch. This is achieved by adding red LED’s to the Vegetative blue lights this also increases the light intensity which fuels faster cell division in plant mater which leads to increased growth and higher yields.

The key to LED light is intensity. The light intensity is called PPFD which stands for Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density. This is a direct relationship of how much of the generated light reaches your plants each second, or more technically it is the number of photosynthetically photons that fall on a surface each second. Light intensity is responsible for healthy photosynthesis in plants there for more light intensity equals more photosynthesis which means the plants produce more energy for cell division which leads to growth.

To ensure healthy growth we recommend a LED grow light with a wide range of wavelength options, this will allow you to adjust the light according to the needs of your plants. The amount of photosynthesis taking place in your plants can be directly affected by, the amount of light, the type of light, type of plants, the Lumen per Square Foot, light wavelength and the distance from the plant to the light.

Recent technology advances have brought LED grow lighting within reach of every cannabis grower. In the past growers were forced to work with HPS (high pressure sodium) lighting which produced results but also used massive amounts for electricity and generated even more heat. To keep your grow alive large amounts of venting and fans were needed and this increased the grow area that was needed as well as the energy required to keep a grow healthy.

Sure, HPS did a great job of growing if you had the space and could afford the costs. Image by growbigorgrowhome.com Advances in LED grow lights With the advances in LED grow lights the time has come for this option of grow light. LED has transformed the way smaller growers can produce increased amounts of cannabis in smaller spaces. HPS lighting required more space due to the massive heat generated and required a proper ventilation system to dissipate all that heat.

That’s no longer true for those using LED lighting. LED grow lights can function in wide area of the light spectrum which means that your plants receive more usable energy from the light generated. LED is able to be adjusted to match the needs of your plants during the different life cycles of your grow. The greatest change in LED lighting is that you will use less than 50% of the energy required to grow your cannabis while providing your plants with better usable wavelength that promote better faster growth.

Gogusco.com How Many Watts Do You Need? To know the exact wattage, you should have in your grow area, you should first calculate the area and the number of plants you will need to cover. If we consider that 1 square foot has 1 plant potted in it, then, the recommended wattage is 32 watts per plant per square foot. If you have a 3×2 square foot tent based on the chart you would require at least 6 Square feet X 32 Watts= 192 Watts.
