On a quest to discover the finest lights for growing cannabis? Between fluorescent, LEDs, and high-pressure sodium (HPS) can often leave you perplexed. Is it possible to boost yields and cultivate high-quality cannabis with energy-efficient lights? Kind LED confidently asserts that it is.
Let’s uncover the five intriguing truths about escalating yields with LED vs HPS grow lights.
For years, HPS lights have been the high-yield champion. Nevertheless, there’s a new kid on the block who isn’t just putting up a fight – they’re often landing the knockout punch. Enter LED, the cannabis yield hero we all deserve to know about.
In one corner, we have a tried and tested workhorse, the 600w HPS light, capable of pumping out a respectable 150 to 300 grams in prime conditions. That’s about 0.5 grams of cannabis per watt, a performance that has been the go-to choice for many growers.
In the more formidable corner, we have the LED light, a flexible system often generating impressive yields as high as 1 to 1.5 grams per watt. The more
impressive element? LED lights do this while sipping on energy, compared to the rival HPS that chugs it.
Companies like Kind have been at the forefront of this green revolution. Their products aren’t just lighting fixtures – they’re precision tools that use high-quality lenses to focus lights from all spectrums onto your cannabis canopy. This means that tiny light particles, called photons, are directed exactly where they need to be most, rather than conventional methods that randomly disperse photons and often fizzle out when needed most.
When you choose a product like Kind’s, you’re not just buying a light; you’re investing in focus,d plant-loving photon power that gives your crops the best chance to maximize yield potential.
Have you heard whispers that say LED lights can produce fluffy buds? Well, ignore them, because LED lights are not your source of fame when it comes to bud structure.
At the end of the day, good light can’t change a plant’s DNA, but it sure can help it reach its full potential. When combined with optimal soil or hydroponic mediums, Kind’s LED systems have a reputation for coaxing out heavenly terpenes and producing impressive flowers.
Let’s dive into some quick numbers – typical cannabis flowers strut around with a terpene level of about 2%. With Kind, they’ve cranked that terp dial up to an eye-watering 3.78 using the X series – almost double the norm.
Let’s remember, terpenes aren’t just about flavor. These little beauties have a fantastic relationship with cannabinoids like THC and CBD. Paired together, an enhanced spectrum of synergistic benefits is undoubtedly experienced.
In the cannabis garden, Kind’s LED lights are possibly your golden ticket to incredible buds. Forget fluffy – with LEDs, we’re talking plush, flavorful, aromatic buds that will have your senses tingling.
Wattage can serve as the ultimate distraction in a grower’s search for the best-growing light.
When out shopping for grow lights, savvy growers know to peek behind the wattage curtain and check out the photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) value, which essentially means available light for the plant to use.
HPS lights consistently have lower PAR values than LED lights. Enters Kind LED grow lights, yet again, with their carefully designed lighting system to produce a nuanced kind of spectrum for your plants. With extremely high PAR readings, these LED lights can distribute a diverse range of light wavelengths, available for plants to use.
Kind LED grow lights are designed to produce the perfect spectrum for your plants. They also have extremely high PAR readings. This means that the plant is able to access a wide diversity of light wavelengths and is able to put the light to use.
Inevitably, higher yields result in the plant’s potent energy source.
Ever wondered how to supercharge your CO2 to get the most bang for your buck? Let’s talk science.
Plants need CO2 to transform light into energy (it’s like a photosynthesis version of a protein shake). But, here comes a twist: the effectiveness of CO2 is directly linked to temperature.
When using high-intensity discharge lights (HIDs), your grow room temperature should ideally sit at about 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit. However, CO2 ideally performs best at 82-86 degrees, making you feel like you’re balancing a challenging seesaw.
Don’t despair – Kind’s LED Bar Lights rise to the rescue, ready to conquer this temperature battle. These lights can weather most conditions without breaking a sweat – whether they’re cozying up in a small-scale operation or a grow room that’s akin to a jungle, these lights can help you squeeze every last bit of goodness from your CO2.
Why does any of this matter? Well, when you optimize CO2, plants can maximize energy use, leading to larger yields and healthier crops. It’s like giving your plants their very own personal trainer.

Letting the LED out of the bag here: not all LED lights are created equal. There’s a galaxy of differences between high-quality, and, let’s say, less-than-stellar LED lights.
Take a look at Kind’s K3 XL600 series – it’s like the James Bond of LED lights, blending cutting-edge technology with agricultural savviness. Good design isn’t just a bonus, it’s the secret ingredient.
When hunting for the perfect LEDs for growing, remember the Holy Trinity: PAR values, light spectrum, and build quality.
