LED Grow Lights for Professional Cannabis Production

 

IMPORTANT: Valoya sells LED grow lights and solutions for cannabis production and research only in those countries where it is legal to do so and only to those customers who are in possession of appropriate cannabis cultivation licences, as defined by local laws. Valoya will require verification of the legal status from its customers to ensure they are licensed growers.

Cannabis sativa is cultivated for its multiple secondary metabolites, cannabinoids, which are used for pharmaceutical, medical and recreational purposes. The main compound collected from Cannabis sativa flowers is ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol, THC. THC is widely regarded as having effects including pain relief and appetite stimulation, that may, among other things, increase the tolerance of cancer patients to chemotherapy. High cannabinoid content is mainly determined by the genetic strain, however environmental factors such as light play a significant role. A superior quality light can expedite the growth cycle and produce a plant with greater flower dry weight and a higher concentration of THC, CBD, THCV and CGB.

 

Valoya’s spectra have been tested for cannabis production and compared against traditional lighting technologies such as High Pressure Sodium (HPS), Metal Halide (MH) or fluorescent lights. Several Valoya light spectra have a strong positive impact on the chemical content on substances such as THC and CBD. Furthermore, Valoya’s luminaries are high intensity fixtures, capable of producing up to 1000 µmol/m²/s lighting environments.

LED Grow Lights for Cannabis Cultivation

The Valoya BIOMASS spectrum has been proven in more than 100 trials to boost the vegetative growth resulting in a plant with great biomass. Therefore when the plant progresses into the bloom stage it can produce and support many and large flowers.

 The Valoya Canna+ spectrum has been found to produce 26-38% more THC in the cannabis plant as opposed to when it is illuminated with HPS.  This spectrum is favored by research institutes and crop science companies worldwide.

The Valoya BIOMASS 28 tube delivers the industry leading 2,1 µmol/W.

The Valoya BIOMASS 120 bar delivers the industry leading up to 2,2 µmol/W. It is light, robust and can withstand extreme humidity, impact, harsh cleaning agents etc.

The Valoya Canna+ 120 bar delivers the industry leading up to 2,4 µmol/W. It is light, robust and can withstand extreme humidity, impact, harsh cleaning agents etc.

The Valoya Canna+ 400 luminaire delivers the industry leading up to 2,3 µmol/W.

For cuttings and vegetative stage we recommend setting-up up to 11 tubes on a 1,2 x 1,2 m (4′ x 4′) area to achieve the light intensity needed. The tubes are daisy-chainable and have a single mains input.

For flowering we recommend setting up 4-6 bars on a 1,2 x 1,2 m (4′ x 4′) area depending on the desired light intensity.

For flowering we recommend using one luminaire to provide enough light in a 4′ x 4′ area.

All Valoya’s spectra are patented. They cover the 380 nm to 780 nm wavelength making them wide (full / continuous) and thus a better light source for plants than HPS, MH etc. and better than most other LEDs lighting solutions available on the market. Click here to learn more.

Valoya Benefits

Light Quality

Optimal light spectrum provides increased yields as well as energy savings. Valoya’s fixtures deliver high quality, sun-like light spectra with high intensity, while producing a minimal amount of heat and consuming less electricity than any other lighting technology. Additionally, the NS1 spectrum appears white to human eyes, enabling the grower to see the plant as it would appear under sunlight and do visual inspection of the plants.

Heat

Valoya’s lights use high efficiency LEDs with optimal passive cooling, with minimal heat radiation towards the plants. The small amount of heat that is created, radiates upwards, leaving the plant unaffected.

Total Cost of Ownership

Valoya’s products are designed to have a long use life, typically rated at 90% of initial output at 35000 hours, which in most cases leads to a productive life of 7-8 years and beyond. The long use life is a result of excellent thermal properties of the LED fixture and the high quality power units used by Valoya.

Lighting as a Service Program

Professional plant cultivation is currently based on traditional lighting and HVAC which account even up to 95% of the total energy consumption. On the other hand, smart energy solutions such as LED offer outstanding results in terms of energy savings, purely for the fact that they have a much longer life span utilizing merely 50-70% of energy. What is more, LED light spectra have shown a high level efficiency in quality plant growth in comparison to the traditional HPS systems that were predominantly designed for street lighting. 

Cost is the main reason why many growers are hesitating to transition from HPS, MH, fluorescent and other traditional lighting methods to LED. This is why Valoya introduced Laas – Lighting as a Service payment option.

What the grower gets for 5 years:

  • LED grow lights
  • Free of charge maintenance and replacement of faulty products
  • Free of charge upgrades to the lighting technology
  • A comprehensive light plan
  • Support from Valoya’s team of horticultural lighting and photobiology specialists

This is a turnkey solution that comes at 0 capital expenditure by the grower. You are billed monthly with a ‘Saved Energy’ utility payment, based on kWhrs saved by switching to LED.
