Using LED grow lights over other forms of lighting for growing marijuana indoors has many benefits. It is cost effective, as they consume less electricity but produce the same amount of light intensity. LED grow lights also generate less heat, which means that there is no need to purchase additional equipment to cool down your grow space.
