Medical Marijuana has been a topic of controversy in the United States since California passed Prop 215 in 1996; however this controversy has now evolved into wide-spread adoption of Medical Marijuana laws with 17 states and Washington DC leading the movement. For generations indoor cultivators have relied on High Pressure Sodium (HPS) and Metal Halide (MH) grow lights to produce crops without sunlight, but there is a new technology entering mainstream that is breaking every record set by these technologies, and its name is LED. For the past three years LED Grow Lights from Hydro Grow have beaten down every record established by HPS and MH grow lights, as documented in hundreds of online grow journals and many YouTube journals. In 2011 Dutch Passion Seed Company announced: “The new world record for a single Auto Mazar has been broken, it now stands at a highly impressive 350 grams following a remarkable grow by Seymour Buds from the UK. This grow will make a lot of people realize how far LED light technology has come in the last couple of years. The 345 watt LED unit (from Hydro Grow) only draws 290W and the effect seems similar to 600W++ of HPS. I never knew LED’s were this effective.”
In a recent article written by Dutch Passion Seed Company in the May 2012 Issue of Soft Secrets Magazine, the company talks in further detail about the amazing results achieved with LED Grow Lights by Hydro Grow, announcing another world record the lights had achieved: “We were so impressed (with the Auto Mazar grow by Seymour Buds) we made him the first recipient of our new Think Different auto strain and he pulled a staggering 356 grams from a single AutoFem grown under a total of 600W of LED (two of the 300W panels) in just 75 days. Our interest, and that of many other observers, had been caught. We had never seen LED produce results anywhere near this good. LED has finally proven itself.”
Prior to grows performed with LED Grow Lights from Hydro Grow, the record yield for Autoflower strains from Dutch Passion was only 250 grams from a single plant grown under a HPS grow light. Hydro Grow’s LED technology was now over-driving these plants, causing them to finish sooner, and yield 100 grams or more per plant compared to HPS. This is incredible news for the Medical Marijuana industry that has been waiting for a replacement for HPS due to inefficiencies like high power consumption, high heat output, and costly bulb replacements. LED Grow Lights eliminate the inefficiencies that have plagued the indoor growing community for decades. The quality models operate below 125° Fahrenheit compared to HPS bulbs at up to 650° F. This reduction in heat causes less water evaporation from the plants, conserving on water and nutrient consumption while eliminating the need for costly ventilation and/or air conditioning equipment in most instances. Now that Hydro Grow has enabled LED Grow Lights to out produce HPS, and has convinced companies like Dutch Passion Seed Company that LED technology is finally ready for mainstream, it’s easy to see why tens of thousands have traded in their HPS for a LED Grow Light from Hydro Grow.
