Medicine Man completes six week study finding LED lamps from Transcend Lighting generate less heat, better plant health

T5 LED Lamp

Transcend Lighting, Inc., leader in LED horticulture lighting, announced today results from a Medicine Man study that showed healthier cannabis clones when grown under LED light instead of fluorescent light.

The critical finding from the study indicated that clones grown with LED lighting exhibited significantly less yellow-streaking that often results from overheating the plants with fluorescent lighting. Tyler Schneider, Director of Operations at Medicine Man, commented, “The clones actually grow better under the LED light because there’s a lot less heat. I wouldn’t go any other way at this point.”

Medicine Man’s six week controlled experiment compared plant growth characteristics using Transcend Lighting’s 30W T5 LED lamps vs standard 54W fluorescent lamps. Although the LED lamps consumed 45% less energy, both lamp types emitted equivalent photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) at the plant canopy.

According to Transcend Lighting CEO, Brian Bennett, “The economic and societal benefits of reducing energy consumption by 45% while maintaining equivalent PPFD are obvious, but enabling healthier plants with our LED technology is a big bonus. We always knew there was less heat in the LED beam, and we are excited to learn about the results of the Medicine Man study.”

Transcend Lighting’s T5 LED lamps will be on display in booth #323 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, June 16-17, at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo.
