Before the rest, still the best. In 2014, Kind LED (based out of Santa Rosa, CA) set out to prove once and for all that LED grow lights were the future of horticultural lighting. To call it an audacious endeavor would be an understatement, as there was little faith in LED technology at the time. But as Kind LED soon proved before anyone else, LED fixtures are not only capable of producing incredible yields, they can produce bigger, higher-quality yields than growers previously thought possible. Since then, while countless imitators have come and gone, Kind has remained dedicated to the constant innovation that has helped Kind LEDs achieve the highest gram per watt yields with the highest potency ever grown. And we promise to keep breaking our own record year after year. To grow the best, grow WITH the best!
Kind LED has been the industry leader in targeted full spectrum LED grow lights since 2014. We've consulted with hundreds of professional medical growers to rigorously research and develop our proprietary cutting-edge LED technology which continually revolutionizes the indoor growing industry year after year. Kind LEDs are widely considered the best LED grow lights to maximize yields and potency on the market today.
Recently, there has been a shift in the industry when it comes to what LED manufacturers consider the most important feature of their fixtures. But how important IS efficacy?Read More
When judging a grow light, you can’t point to a single feature as being the most important. There are several factors that influence the viability of a grow light, with the spectrum at the top of the list.Read More
Full-Spectrum technically means that a light covers all wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum helpful to plants. However, the ratio of these wavelengths can differ widely between fixtures.Read More
In the past few years, the industry has seen a huge surge in popularity of white-light LED fixtures, primarily due to extensive marketing efforts intended to downplay the shortcomings of these fixtures. White-light LED fixtures use readily available white diodes manufactured for countless uses in every imaginable industry.
These diodes include a large amount of green and yellow light—and while these spectrums play a vital role in plant development, the amount produced by white light LED manufacturers far exceeds the amount a plant can actually absorb. In fact, more than 50% of green and yellow light winds up reflected from the plant’s surface. That wasted energy gets turned into heat, raising the temperature of the grow environment. This heat can have a detrimental effect on plants, and forces the grower to invest money in additional cooling equipment and increase their watering schedules.
This is where Kind LED's targeted full spectrum grow lights come into play. We utilize light science to produce only the wavelengths of light that most benefit plant growth while avoiding the wastefulness that plagues the white-light LED market. Kind LED saves growers money while improving their yields, guaranteed.
Full-Spectrum is a term that has been used in the horticultural lighting industry for years, since the first grow lights entered the market. But what does it mean? The term "full spectrum" was used in the 1960s by Dr. John Ott to describe electric light sources that simulate the visible and ultraviolet (UV) spectrum of natural light.Read More
White-light LED companies have taken to claiming that efficacy is the most important feature of a grow light, some going so far as to boast the efficacy of a single diode. They claim a fixture’s spectral quality is secondary, and warn against companies that claim their spectrum is specifically tuned for the benefit of plants.Read More
Deciding on what growing lights to use in your indoor garden is a major decision, with trickle-down effects not only on your potential harvest but the entire operational setup. Today, there are two main types of indoor grow lights to choose from, high-pressure sodium lights (HPS) or light emitting diodes lights (LED).Read MOre
