One 1000w Light

A grow room is not cheap and the cost of maintaining the system is a large monthly expense.1000w kit Lets look at the investment price for just one light.

One air-cooled hood (the fixture that holds the bulbs) can cost $250 at your local grow store. The ballast (provides the proper starting and operating electrical condition to power the lamp) can run $199 and up. 1000W light bulbs start at $69 and max out around $250. A mechanical timer will run you $10 to $20. A 6″ in-line fan (to cool the hood) will be about $100 and then the ducting, to carry cold air in and hot air out, will be about $20. So, if you were to walk in to the grow store and buy top quality equipment for just one light kit, it could cost up around $630 per light. With that said, most grow store’s offer this same kit with low end equipment for around $450 if you can catch a good sale (not including the in-line fan). If you shop online you can find all this equipment for $350.

Portable units are the best priced option for grow rooms. They start around $250 and go up from there. A split unit A/C  would be ideal but they start out around $1500.

Each 1000w light coa:cst about $40 a month to run. What they don’t tell you is the cost of running an inline fan and the A/C unit to keep the room cool from all the heat put out by the lamp/lamps.

A grower with 2-1000w h.p.s. (flower) and 1-1000w m.h. (veg) can expect a $300-450 a month power bill depending on the time of year and your normal usage.

My Back Hurts. Will Medical Marijuana Help?

Medical Marijuana gave me my life back

After suffering for so long with extreme pain in my lower back due to a major car accident I finally decided to take my pain management into my own hands.

All the doctors want to do is pump me full of narcotics and opiates that tear up my stomach and make me feel loopy.

I had a close friend tell me to look into medical marijuana. I had never smoked before and didn’t think it was for me.

I was wrong.

There are so many different ways to ingest it other than just smoking and ALL of them took away my back pain. The best part is that I’m able to grow my own medication. Without any insurance I’m saving SO much money.
