If you are running a larger grow operation and need a grow light that packs a punch, then 1000W LED grow lights are what you’re looking for. They produce light of a higher intensity that covers more ground, perfect for higher quantities of marijuana plants.
Extreme 336X Pro LED Grow Light
The Extreme 336X Pro is a little on the expensive side, but it is well worth it for its sheer power. Its 336 3W LED bulbs provide light of six different wavelengths for your plants, as well as having a coverage of 16 square feet. This means that with just one of these grow lights, you could grow up to 256 adult marijuana plants!
Another bonus of this LED grow light is that, whilst it is rated at 1000W, it only actually requires 500W to produce the same high-quality light as a 1000W HID lamp. The LED bulbs are super efficient, and also run cool, so you could hang the Extreme just six inches from the top of your canopy without the risk of burning your plants. Whilst the initial price of this grow light might seem a lot, with time you will save on electricity bills as well as being able to grow lots more bud.
Illumitex Neosol DS 520
This LED grow light has a long lifespan of up to 60,000 hours (about 12 years of grow time), and is dimmable, meaning that you won’t have to lower the light as your plants begin to flower, but just increase the intensity instead. The Illumitex is also IP66 rated, which means that it can withstand a high humidity environment.
The Illumitex 1000W LED grow light has a special guarantee: your plants will grow 15% more quickly, with a 15% higher yield, and there will be 15% more PPFD (photosynthetically active radiation) in comparison to a 1000W HID equivalent grow light. If the Illumitex doesn’t meet this ’15-15-15’ guarantee, you will get your money back!
Viparspectra 1200W LED Grow Light
This grow light has a coverage of up to four square feet (up to 16 adult marijuana plants) and comes with a vegetative stage switch for when your plants don’t need as much light. Flip the switch again when your plants start to flower to provide them with the light they need to grow big, tasty buds.
Whilst the Viparspectra’s four built-in fans can be a little noisy, they also keep the grow light cool and the temperature of your grow space cool, so your plants won’t dry up and you won’t have to actively regulate the temperature of your grow space or tent.
Kind LED K5-XL1000
The Kind LED grow light has a fully adjustable light spectrum, which is great if you know what you are doing but might take a few tries to get right if you are new to growing marijuana indoors. Kind market this grow light as being able to replace a 1000W HPS, but the reality is the Kind grow light just doesn’t have the canopy penetration that its 1000W HPS equivalent does. It is also the most expensive grow light in this review, which means you would be paying more for less quality, so we would not recommend you buy this grow light.
LumiGrow Pro 650
The LumiGrow Pro 650 is an excellent high power indoor light source, with a coverage of four square feet (up to 16 adult marijuana plants). The great thing about this grow light is that you can manually alter the PAR values with the knobs on the unit. This allows you to experiment and find the combination that your plants like the best.
Another useful feature of the LumiGrow Pro 650 is its white light switch, which allows you to inspect your plants for any discolouration in white light, showing your plants’ true colour. This unit is also energy efficient and environmentally friendly, with the usual long lifespan of LED bulbs.
2PCS King Plus 1000W Double Chips LED Grow Light
This is a pack of two 1000W LED full spectrum grow lights which when combined cover an area of four square feet, and are suitable for both the vegetative stage and flowering stage of plant growth. They will provide your plants with high-quality full spectrum light to get you a high yield of great tasting bud. However, these grow lights do run quite hot, so they each have two extra extractor fans as well as thicker glass and holes in the LED board to make sure the heat dissipates upwards and away from your plants.
GoGrow V3 Master Grower
The 1000W Master Grower is somewhat cheaper than most of the other grow lights in this review and therefore doesn’t have any of the cool tricks that the more expensive lights have, such as a veg/flower switch or dimmable lights. However, this does not mean that the light the Master Grower emits is sub-par. GoGrow even claims that the Master Grower emits more red light in its spectrum, helping your buds grow dense and fruity. It also comes with a 3-year warranty, which isn’t as high as some of the other warranties for the more expensive lights, but is still good for a cheaper 1000W LED grow light.
Pro Series Full Spectrum 300W LED Quad Band
The Pro Series 300W LED is a less powerful grow light than the stronger 1000W grow lights in this review, but the price tag is a little less scary. It doesn’t have any adjustable settings, but the light quality is good none the less. If you are a beginner grower with a small budget, this light would work well for you. As it is a cheaper, smaller LED grow light, you probably won’t be growing the best bud around. If you want your plants to be high yielding, you will have to fork out a little more cash on a bigger, stronger grow light.
That’s it for the reviews. Make sure you know how many plants you want to grow and what area you need covering before spending your hard earned money on a grow light!
