There are three different types of Cannabis growing lights called:


  • HID or High Intensity Discharge lights

  • CFL or Compact Fluorescent lights

  • LED or Light Emitting Diode lights


Even though hid lights offer the right number of lumens to grow Cannabis but they are quite expensive and may not be a suitable option for beginners.  CFL lights are a great alternative of HID lights but they do not work properly for the flowering phase.


This is where LED light comes to the rescue as they are affordable and equally effective for the vegetative and flowering phase.


Benefits of using LED lights


LED light offer numerous benefits and some of them are the following.


Affordability


As compared to the expensive HID setup, LED lights are quite affordable. It is particularly helpful for small scale farmers who are looking for growing a small number of cannabis plants. With no more than $200, you can easily install the set of the LED lights.


Energy Saving


LED lights are the most environment friendly option as they save you a lot on your energy bill. HID may be very good at their job but they cost a fortune when it comes to the electricity bills. Extraordinary bill can also draw the attention of the landlords or even police which may lead to inconvenience even if Marijuana is legal in your area.


Durability


LED lights are way long lasting that CFL or HID lights. Other types of lights may only work for 20 thousand hours whereas LED lights have a 5 times more life and may work for up to 100 thousand hours. It is a one-time investment and lasts longer.


Reduced water usage


HID lights produce more heat as it uses a large amount of energy. The heat increases the temperature of the room and the plants require more water than usual. Since cannabis already requires a large quantity of water, using HID lights can add to the consumption. LED lights do not generate enough heat which may add to the water consumption.
