When is the Right Time to Switch from HPS to LEDs for Cannabis?
In recent years, light-emitting diodes, or LEDs for short, have carved out their place in the cannabis lighting world — and given rise to a lot of questions. Can LEDs produce the same high-quality flower as high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamps? Will they save you money? And what are the drawbacks of LEDs that companies aren’t telling you?
HPS lights have long been the industry standard. And as the saying goes, “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” It’s true; there’s nothing wrong with high-intensity discharge (HID) technologies like HPS. In fact, HID lamps might be best for your application and budget.
But, if you’re reading this, you’re probably ready to tap the benefits of LEDs — benefits which include increased efficiency, cost savings, higher light intensity, and a level of control over the lighting spectrum that’s impossible with HPS. Even better, LEDs can give you an overall healthier plant. So, let’s take a look at the two technologies to see which is right for you.
