UV Lighting for Marijuana Dispensary
Having and maintaining a successful marijuana dispensary is not difficult, as long as you have the right set up in place, including lighting. UV lighting is the preferred choice because it is as close to the sun as you can get.
This is what help to help with improving the product by increasing both potency and THC. So let our electricians here at America’s Best Mechanical & Electrical Contracting provide you with the service that you want, need and deserve.
Beneficial UV Lighting for Your Marijuana Dispensary
UV lighting is thought to help increase potency, and also enhance resin production. Plus, it is thought to also increase THC amounts by as much as 28%. Here is some of what you should know about UV and other lighting for growing marijuana.
Flourescent Grow Lights
medical marijuana can greatly show positive effects from Flourescent grow lights. T5 fluorescents are ideal for different growing stages while the T5-HO is a high output grow light powerful enough for the vegetating and flowering stages. The T8 and T12 bulbs, or traditional Flourescents, may not be the right choice if you are cultivating organic marijuana because they tend to only generate enough light for shade loving plants. Yet, they can be beneficial for clones which do like shade in order to focus on producing roots.
High Intensity Discharge (HID) Grow Lights
There are three basic HID grow lights: The Metal Halide lights, High Pressure Sodium and Ceramic Metal Halide lights. These are considered more efficient, but can get very hot. Therefore, they require an exhaust vent to extract the heat so that it does not affect the plants.
LED Grow Lights
LED grow lights are quickly becoming very popular, and for a number of good reasons. Certain types of LED grow lights are highly effective because they are multi-spectrum lights and are energy efficient. Even high-quality medical marijuana, which has been genetically designed to produce high levels of THC, requires UV light, in some form or fashion.
Electrical Panel Upgrades To Handle Lighting
More than likely, you will also need a panel upgrade, in order to handle all the extra demand for electrical power. As a dispensary handling the cultivation, you’ll be growing a lot of plants which need sufficient indoor grow lights. Without an upgrade, you are likely to have problems with blown fuses and tripped breakers, which can have a negative impact on the quality of your product.
