Cannabis Growing Equipment Guides

Growing cannabis requires the right equipment if you want to get the most out of your plants.

However, choosing the right equipment can be quite overwhelming for new growers, as there are so many options to choose from.

Grow lights are especially confusing to navigate.

What size grow light do you need? How many watts? What spectrum? Do you need UV and Infrared?

The considerations are seemingly endless

It also doesn’t help that many grow light manufacturers market their grow lights with misleading claims designed to make you think you’re getting a more powerful light than you actually are.

It’s enough to make you want to quite growing weed before you’ve even started!

Why Choosing The Right Equipment Is Important

This may be pretty obvious, but buying the wrong type of equipment will lead to so many needles headaches as a new grower.

I once bought the cheapest grow tent on Amazon. I thought that all grow tents were pretty much the same thing.

Well, when I set it up, I realized that it had lots of tears in the stitching.

Light would have poured through these holes, making it much less efficient. My buds would have suffered as a result.

Annoyed at myself, I dismantled it, packed it up, took it to the post office, and sent it back.

The postage cost me $15!!

My grow was also delayed by another week.

If I’d done a bit more research and bought a slightly better quality tent, I would have saved my saved a lot of time, money, and frustration.

A grow cycle requires time, dedication, and patience. You’re going to want to get the right grow equipment so that you get the best return for all your hard work.

Ultimately, if you buy grow equipment that isn’t up to the job, you’re going to get really poor results from your grow.
