Here is additional information relative to the previous article on Cannabis Trichomes.

These LED grow lights for cannabis flowering include a custom wavelength mix of diodes. The correspon ding nanometers are included following each color: Deep Red (DR) 660, (Hyper Red (HR) 660, Infrared (IR) 730, Blue (B) 470, White (WH) 5000K, and Violet (VT) 400.

The upper image is of a cannabis glasshouse operation where the Made in USA LED fixtures augment the natural sunlight to yield higher density trichomes on the sugar leaves (previous article) than on the plants without the LEDs.

In addition to the energy savings that comes with LEDs, relative to other growth enhancement lighting options, the AmericaMadeLED lighting advantage reduces transportation costs from Asia and the greenhouse gas emissions.

Trichomes are responsible for producing the cannabis plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes. Trichomes contain resin glands that make the terpenes, THCA, CBDA, and other phytocannabinoids for which cannabis is known.
