Why Do You Need LED Grow Lights to Grow Cannabis?

Ⅰ. Cultivation of cannabis

1. Cannabis seedling growth

Cannabis is more sown in early spring when the soil temperature is above 8°C at 5 cm below the surface. Within 30 days after the cannabis seedlings are unearthed, most of them are not irrigated and LED plant grow lights are used to promote the growth of seedlings to control the seedlings and promote roots. According to the difference in the morphology of the female and male seedlings, the male seedlings can be selected and the female seedlings can be removed when the seedlings are fixed to improve the fiber quality.

2. Pick cannabis fields and select female seedlings

The optimum temperature for cannabis growth is 19-23°C. The average daily growth of cannabis plants is 3-5 cm and the growth peak can reach about 10 cm. At this time, they can withstand atmospheric drought but not soil drought, so they are usually irrigated continuously after 1 month of emergence to keep the maximum soil water content at about 80%.

Combining early application with irrigation, heavy application of fast-acting fertilizers and LED plant grow lights promotes long stems. The density of seedlings varies from place to place. Generally, early-maturing varieties leave 80000 to 150000 plants per mu and late-maturing varieties 30000 to 50000 plants. In China, the main pests are cannabis worm and weevil, and the diseases include sclerotinia and blight.

The LED plant grow light adopts a double lens, which has enhanced penetration and increased illumination. It is an ideal supplementary light for cannabis. Thousands of years ago, traditional herbalists used cannabis to treat all the diseases, from earaches to arthritis to convulsions.

In the 21st century, the benefits of cannabis for a wide range of diseases, including glaucoma, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, multiple sclerosis (MS), AIDS-induced wasting and so on have attracted attention from all concerned.

If further research supports this claim, pressure on governments around the world to legalize medical marijuana will increase.

Ⅱ. The application range of cannabis grown with LED plant grow lights

1. Religion and spirituality

Cannabis has a long history of application in religion and spirituality. Especially in India, it has been used by wandering saints for centuries.

2. Medical applications

In medicine, cannabis is often used to aid in the treatment of certain terminally ill (cancer, AIDS). It is used to increase appetite and reduce pain. It can be used to relieve neurological symptoms such as glaucoma and epilepsy, migraine headaches and bipolar mood swings. It can reduce nausea in chemotherapy patients.

3. Textile

Cannabis cultivation is also one of the earliest varieties used as a textile fiber. It can be used as a raw material for fiber products, clothing, ropes, sails, grease, paper and medical supplies.

But traditionally, cannabis has been used as a fiber that can only be used to make rope. It isn't until recently that the process of improving the fineness of cannabis fibers is developed and the comfort of cannabis is truly discovered.

LED plant grow light is currently produced specifically for growing cannabis. It has high luminous brightness and strong penetration. And it is the most suitable new type of plant light for cannabis growth.

People are still vague about how to grow cannabis and how to use LED plant fill lights for cannabis cultivation. Now I hope people will know more about it.
