Top 5 Best ‘Bang For Your Buck’ Grow Lights

We reviewed several grow lights, and this is Jah’s Pharma’s Top 5 best ‘bang for your buck’ LED grow lights for weed.

Cannabis growers, like any ‘parent’, want the best for their babies.  That often starts with the best grow light you can afford.  

Looking at a 3,000 watt commercial light may not make sense to the average closet grower, so we picked our favorite for different purposes and from price ranges.

LED Overload

There are literally hundreds of LED Grow light manufacturers, and swimming through scientific jargon isn’t what you want to be doing with your time.

Do you really care about the specific PAR a light reaches in the back corner of your grow tent?


You want a great light, a good price, and then get back to your garden.  

We get it.  When we were just starting out, there were only HPS(High Pressure Sodium) and MH(Metal Halide).  Now, the number of variations can make your head spin.

We’ve tried to pare the field down to the Best Bang for Your Buck!

Spider Farmer SF-4000

This isn’t your first rodeo.  You’re ready for MORE POWER.  The Spider Farmer SF-4000 is a  borderline commercial LED grow light.  

So, if you’re ready to go Beast Mode with your next crop; It’s time to upgrade!

The Spider Farmer SF-4000 is ideal for all growth stages.  Excellent full spectrum- white, blue, red and IR (3000K, 5000K, 660nm and IR 760nm). 3000K diodes providing more reddish light and the 5000K providing more blueish. The 660nm red and IR light is especially useful during bloom, where it speeds up flowering time and boost yields. The light from the Spider Farmer SF-4000 looks fairly natural, so it’s good for accurately monitoring plant health.  Much better than the ‘red & blue’ LEDs.
