Which full spectrum led light will yield me the most medical marijuana growing indoors

Providing the appropriate light during different stages of cannabis growth is crucial for maximizing THC content. Here are the light requirements for each stage, supported by scientific research:
1. Vegetative Stage: During the vegetative stage, cannabis plants require a longer photoperiod and specific light spectra to promote healthy leaf and stem growth. Research studies have shown that providing 18-24 hours of light per day and utilizing a light spectrum rich in blue wavelengths (around 400-500 nm) enhances vegetative growth and promotes the development of secondary metabolites, including THC [1][2].
2. Transition Stage: The transition stage occurs when cannabis plants switch from the vegetative to the flowering stage. During this period, it is recommended to gradually reduce the photoperiod to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness. This light cycle alteration signals the plants to initiate flowering. Several scientific studies have demonstrated that the transition from long-day to short-day photoperiods induces the production of cannabinoids, including THC [3][4].
3. Flowering Stage: In the flowering stage, cannabis plants require specific light spectra that promote the synthesis and accumulation of THC. Research suggests that during this stage, providing a light spectrum rich in red wavelengths (around 600-700 nm) combined with a small amount of blue light stimulates THC production [5][6]. It is recommended to maintain a 12-hour light/12-hour dark cycle throughout the flowering stage.
It’s important to note that the exact light requirements may vary depending on the cannabis strain and specific growing conditions. Additionally, it’s advisable to consult strain-specific research and take into consideration other factors such as temperature, humidity, and nutrient availability to achieve optimal THC production.

HIBOCT is a professional LED grow light brand. HIBOCT invests millions of dollars each year in the research and development of LED grow lights, aiming to create affordable and high-quality products. Through the joint efforts of our professional LED engineers, factories, and material suppliers, and after multiple product iterations and upgrades, we have finally developed the HIBOCT C series, consisting of four economical LED grow lights.
These lights utilize the Samsung 281B+ chip solution and, due to their large number of LEDs, offer a PPE (Photosynthetic Photon Efficacy) of 2.75-2.95 umol/J, which is on par with the Samsung 301B solution while being more cost-effective. We have successfully created the C-800W and C-900W UVIR, which are the best-selling LED grow lights priced at $400-$500. Additionally, we have introduced the C-1000W and C-1000W MAX, high-intensity versions that provide higher PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) and PPE to meet the needs of professional commercial growers.
With 243 large-scale indoor cultivation projects worldwide, we have gathered ample testing data to aid our research and development. Recently, HIBOCT has established a new warehouse in Thailand, offering convenient product testing and purchasing experiences for small and medium-sized growers. We welcome growers in Thailand to visit our warehouse for on-site light testing and to experience the convenience of high-quality LED grow lights.
