What is LEC Lighting for Cannabis?

LEC lighting (Light Emitting Ceramic) also known as CMH (Ceramic Metal Halide), or CDM (Ceramic-Discharge Metal Halide) is an innovative lighting technology for indoor growing.

What Benefits does LEC Technology Have?

  • LEC systems produce larger yields in regards to gram/watt (between 1.5 and 1.8g per watt).
  • Generates less heat than HPS systems, which allow for more terpenes and cannabinoids to preserve.
  • Higher quality final produce with better flavour and more intense effects.
  • You can save electricity; a 315w LEC light produces almost the same results as a 600w HPS grow light.
  • Produces light similar to natural sunlight, which can cause an increase in resin yield.
  • These systems easily make up for their initial investment.

Why do I need a LEC Lighting Ballast

LEC lights won’t start with a HPS/MH ballast. These types of lights need a ballast and socket that are compatible with LEC-CMH lighting.

  • If you’re planning on using a 315w LEC bulb you’ll need a 315w LEC ballast and a reflector with a LEC socket or an e-40 adaptor socket for CMH/LEC 315w.
  • If you plan on using a 630w LEC bulb you’ll need to use a 630w LEC ballast and a DE Double Ended reflector. If you have an Adjust a Wing reflector you can use it with a Hellion socket.
