UV Lighting for Marijuana Dispensary
One of the key factors that goes into a successful marijuana dispensary is the lighting. Fail to get adequate lighting, and you are not going to be able to maintain the quality of the plants and products. However, even the best lighting system in the world can only perform as well as the workmanship invested into it.

Beneficial UV Lighting for Your Marijuana Dispensary
If you are not already aware of the benefits of having UV lighting for your marijuana dispensary, here are a few things that you should be aware of:
UV lighting is believed to help increase the potency, as well as enhance resin production.
Exposure to this type of lighting system has been found to significantly improve the THC in growing buds. In fact, the amount was increased by just under 30%.
This lighting system is installed in order to generate radiation effects, mimicking that found in nature due to exposure from UVB rays from the sun.
Simply put, it improves your product and enhances the effects that your dispensary customers will notice and feel. However, in order to get the best results, it is all about getting a professional lighting set up in place. This is where America’s Best Air Conditioning, Heating & Electrical LLC comes into the picture.
Types of Lighting
Flourescent Grow Lights
If you are interested in fluorescent grow lights for medical marijuana, you’ll want T5 fluorescent lights because they are fine for all the different growing stages. Traditional fluorescent, the T8 and T12 bulbs, are not a good choice if you are growing organic marijuana because they only produce enough light for a shade loving plants. However, they can be useful for clones which do want shade in order to focus on producing roots. The T5-HO is a high output grow light powerful enough for the vegetating and flowering stages.
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 are much more efficient than fluorescent lights for growing medical marijuana. Since they are powerful and do get very hot, they should be hooked up to an exhaust vent to remove the heat or it can affect the plants. They are heavy, so there needs to be a strong structure to install them on.
LED Grow Lights
LED grow lights are quickly becoming very popular for many reasons. Some LED grow lights use for medical marijuana are highly effective because they are multi-spectrum lights and are energy efficient. For instance, the Lighthouse Hydro ION 8 FSF LED grow light. A light that produces a true, realistic spectrum is much better because they are able to help plants grow healthy and quick. Plants need exposure to UV light in order to produce quality THC levels. Even high-quality medical marijuana which is genetically designed to produce high levels of THC will need UV light if you want to produce the highest quality product possible. The GalaxyHydro 600 LED grow lights are more efficient but just as effective as HID grow lights.
