Silver State Relief Boosts THC, Cuts Energy Costs 70% with LumiGrow LED Grow Lights

In this conversation with Silver State Relief growers, find out how they applied scientific principles instead of hearsay to boost cannabis yields and quality. With this disciplined approach, their team is dispelling myths about growing with LEDs vs. HPS lights.

For starters, the team discovered that the LumiGrow Pro 650™ LED lights produce more buds in certain strains than 1,000W HPS fixtures do. They’re boosting THC and other cannabinoid levels, too.

Next up, the growers will experiment with LumiGrow smartPAR™ spectral programs to optimize growth for discrete stages; rooting, vegetative, flowering and late flowering.

The growers will describe how switching to LEDs enabled them to achieve:

  • Improved cannabinoid production profiles
  • Equivalent yields with 40% less electricity for lighting
  • Constant 78° F temperature with 70% less cost
  • 3 feet of strong bud development down the canopy vs. 18-24 inches
