My # 3 Pick – Best Value
Galaxyhydro 300w LED Grow Light Full Spectrum
My 2 cents: This Galaxyhydro 300w model is a step up from their base model with added daisy chain option and an additional fan for cooling. Build quality is great and the performance is also better than the base model because of the added power and 90 degree lenses. Overall, these are quality LED grow lights for growing marijuana and you can get them for a very reasonable price. My rating 4.7 outta 5.
My # 4 Pick – Consistent Results
Viparspectra Reflector-Series 300W LED Grow Light
My 2 cents: I like the Viparspectra brand as a whole, they make great LED grow lights for cultivating marijuana. The 300w Reflector series has a quality build, good overall design, proven performance backed by great customer service. The daisy chain option and 5w diodes are good options because you can add an extra light and the diodes are underpowered which will increase its lifespan. If you are looking for a dependable full spectrum grow light that performs great and is still affordable, this is your light. My rating 4.6 outta 5.
My # 5 Pick – Proven Results
MEIZHI 300W Led Grow Light Full Spectrum
My 2 cents: I really like the company Meizhi because they rarely have any problems and they are excellent LED grow lights for marijuana. Their 300w model is a very good starter light with the 5w diodes. The build quality and performance are hard to beat. I have had no problems with mine and the reviews say the same thing, so the 1-year warranty was never a drawback because I’ve never had to use it. If you want a quality light that gives great results, this one will not disappoint. My rating 4.5 outta 5.
MaxBloom X4 Plus Full Spectrum COB LED Grow Light
Features Include: 12-Band Full Spectrum, UV/IR, Veg/Bloom Switch, COB & 5-Watt Diodes, 2 Cooling Fans w/Aluminum Heat Sinks, 5-Year Warranty, 200-Watt Output with PAR at 24" Height being 580 µmol m−2s−1.
My 2 cents: I really like MaxBlooms X4 Plus for growing cannabis. Combining the standard LED's with the COB for their proprietary 12-band full spectrum is remarkable. They should guarantee their high yield claims because mine showed considerable gains over some of the other lights on my list. The light runs quiet and cool, and its priced to sell. Some other good features are that it's waterproof and it comes with a 5-year warranty which means they stand behind their product. If you are looking for top-notch performance for a very reasonable price, this light is exactly what you have been looking for. My rating, 4.9 outta 5.
