Stop shopping for MarsHydro on Amazon: Here’s why…

LEDGrowLightCompany - 10% off MarsHydro

Big hint: 10% off everything

If you’ve been thinking about growing cannabis at home and looking into the equipment needed then a) welcome, you’re in the right place, and b) you’ve probably already run across the name MarsHydro.

We’ve written positively about their grow lights on more than one occasion, with the Mars 300W making the Top 10 on our sister site for the past few years. We also know their lights are big sellers with our readers.

So why are we writing about them again now?

Because you need to know about OUR NEW STORE.

(Sad-funny story about the conspiracy among the FAANG companies, the Banksters, the BigBadTabakkyGuys and the US Gummint below this article.)

Its name is LEDGrowLightCompany and it lives at LEDGrowLightCompany.com.

Yep, you heard right.

We are selling MarsHydro LED Grow Lights shipped straight from MarsHydro’s US warehouse.

 

And our shop is cheaper than Amazon. (You can’t accuse us of burying the lead!)

Because we are also offering a…

10% discount on everything you buy from our store.

Just enter “10off” at checkout to claim your discount on EVERYTHING.

 

And—EVEN MORE—there’s free shipping to the continental US.

So if you live in one of the newly liberated, Revolution of 2018 states then this free shipping offer is worth its weight in Acapulco Gold.

And if you still live in the not-so-liberated states (UTAH? anyone?) then the discreet packaging is also worth its weight in Acapulco Gold.

Another reason to buy from us: some MarsHydro lights just aren’t available on Amazon anymore.

So if you’re considering buying a MarsHydro grow light or grow tent, read on to find out a bit more about MarsHydro, what they sell—and why it could be worth your while to buy from LEDGrowLightCompany (that’s us.)

MarsHydro: A brief introduction

MarsHydro bestselling grow light 300w
MarsHydro’s bestselling Mars 300W

MarsHydro grow lights have earned a great reputation among growers for very competitive prices—but combined with component and build quality that exceeds most lights at similar price points.

For instance, rather than no-name LED diodes, Mars lights use zener protected Epistar and/or CREE LED chips. (Zener protection means that if one LED fails the rest continue to work.)

Moreover, MarsHydro lights are tested at least three times for quality control and all products are fully safety certified for US, Canadian and EU markets.

Founded in 2009, the company has been developing and perfecting its products for over nine years now. The Mars factory shop itself has a history on eBay going back over six years, with 99.9% positive feedback. They reply to enquiries within one business day. We’re looking to offer that same service.

While MarsHydro lights are manufactured in China, a network of warehouses and repair centers across the US/Canada/UK/Germany/Australia handles local shipping and servicing. For the vast majority of our readers that means fast, free or cheap local shipping; local repairs; and no extra customs fees.

Shipping within the USA is free. And packaging is discreet.

Mars also makes grow tents (which we’re selling too) and protective glasses for dealing with the ultra-brightness of LEDs.

What else we like about MarsHydro grow lights

  • Full spectrum, for use throughout your grow
  • Even coverage
  • Plenty of info given on the exact spectrum, footprint and PAR values of each light—too many manufacturers still don’t give growers enough of this info
  • No unrealistic claims about what wattage of HID lights they can replace
  • Hanging kit, region-specific power cable and instruction manual included
  • Minimum of 1 year manufacturer warranty with free service or returns with first 90 days (after that, Mars sends parts for free, or you pay shipping to the repair center and Mars pays return shipping)—warranty length depends on product.

Advantages of buying from LEDGrowLightCompany:

Did we mention already that our lights are cheaper than buying from Amazon?

Did we already mention the…

10% Discount on Everything?

 

Besides that not insignificant point, it’s also worth noting that our store sells some models that aren’t available on Amazon.

Another advantage:

You can be sure that you’re buying authentic goods directly from MarsHydro (and our guy on the inside is Kevin Chen if you want to check), rather than from a reseller raising the price or someone selling fakes (it happens). Just make sure the store name is LEDGrowLightCompany.

Selling direct from the manufacturer also means we may also offer the occasional auction of new or used equipment. Your chance to perhaps pick up a great bargain.

Plus we can offer some good deals on multi-product packages, which are hard to find on Amazon.

Just enter “10off” at checkout to get your, you guessed it…

10% Discount on everything.

 

Happy growing!


A CONSPIRACY FABLE ABOUT FAANG, BANKSTERS, TABAKKY AND GUMMINT

(P.S. Conspiracy against us.  We are not paranoid.  But that guy in the trenchcoat behind us might be.)

Anyway, as you may or may not know, the FAANG companies (Facecrack, Amazoo, Crapple, Netfux and Gurgle) are bigshots in the $$$ bizness.  And the banksters like JPMugginYou, ChaseYou, and BankUvAmerika just LOOOOOOVE $$$$$.  And they all LOOOOVE the US Gummint because it’s so easy to suck bucks out of the Gullible Gummint.

So when the Gummint is waddling along with its money cart, the banksters and the FAANGS don’t want to upset the money cart.

Now one thing the Gummint likes a lot is more $$$$.  And it gets more $$$ with taxe$$$.  And it yanks taxe$$$ out of every little crevice it can find.

But for the longest time, like 100 years, the Gummint could not find the crevices where weed was growing, so it couldn’t suck taxe$$$ out of weed.  And besides, BigBadTobakky didn’t want nobody smoking nuthin else.

So everything was hunkydory with BigBadTobakky paying taxes out of your pocket, and the Gummint collecting those taxe$$$, and the banksters storing those taxe$$$ and FAANG companies sitting back and maybe taking a little ad money on the side.

But then sumthin’ happened.  You decided you weren’t smokin that Tobakky no more, you were growing your own. And it tasted and smelled a LOT better.

420-ish...

The Gummint couldn’t find the crevices where you grew it, so the Gummint couldn’t collect the taxe$$$.  And the banksters couldn’t suck the $$$ from the taxes. And that created a FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) which led to NIMBY (Nobody In My BackYard) which led to FU (do I really need to spell it out?)

And then sumthin’ else happened.

You started growing more and MORE and MOOOORE in bigger and BIGGER and BIGGGGGER crevices.  And then the Gummint found it.  And eventually the Gummint figured out a way to get taxe$$ from it—in some states.

But the banksters are still in the last century.

And since the FAANG’s and the banks are up each other’s wazoo in a big way—well, the FAANG and the banksters ain’t gonna let anything called “420beginner” have a store.  And just try to advertise anything with them with “cannabis” mentioned anywhere on the site… T’ain’t gonna happen.

So we have to pretend we only sell LED Grow Lights to, y’know…

legal tomato growers.

 

And that’s why we are called LEDGrowLightCompany.com, kiddies.

Not sure which MarsHydro light to buy? No worries, we’ve already reviewed a few over on 420Beginner.com and we’ll be adding some more reviews over the next few months. (N.B. We said “next few weeks” in the newsletter—we meant “months”!)

Hemp Extract for Pets 20% off Sale

pet hemp

Organic Hemp Products for Pets

Our friends at Canna-Pet are holding a blowout sale on their Hemp-derived products for pets. We have written about CBD for pets in this post.  The CannaPet products are not CBD oil but hemp extract does contain a variety of other terpenes and phytochemicals that CannaPet claims have beneficial effects for a variety of pet ailments and conditions.  You can read about the differences between hemp oil, CBD oil and hemp seed oil here.  CannaPet’s claim is that their products “contain over two dozen compounds, terpenes and flavonoids, including hemp, ß-Caryophyllene, CBC, CBG, limonene, α-pinene, and linalool, HPLC tested to ensure quality and consistency.”  That sounds like something you could spend a lifetime learning about, but it’s easier just to look at testimonials and there are a lot of those, attesting to beneficial effects seen with CannaPet products.  So even if these dog weed and cat weed products don’t contain CBD, they seem to be pleasing a lot of pet owners. And CannaPet seems to be a company that really cares about producing high-quality products for a wide variety of animals.

If after reading about CannaPets’ products you care to buy some, they are offering 20%off everything and free shipping.  If you want to find genuine CBD Oil to give your pets, then you can read our post here or you can just check out the Purfurred brand products at MadeByHemp.

Another Top LED Grow Lights Review

Best LED Grow Lights from our friends at LED Grow Lights Depot.

There are a multitude of LED Grow Lights on the market at all price levels and with or without all the bells and whistles.  Sometimes the quality is what it should be but sometimes–well, some manufacturers cut corners to cut costs.  And the opinions about LED Grow Lights are just like belly-buttons–everybody has one.  So it can be hard or even impossible to find the lights that are best for your indoor garden.

That’s where we come in–we do the work of sorting out what is good, what is worth the cost and even sometimes what to avoid completely.  Our top ten LED Grow Light Reviews for 2019 are posted on our front page and on the front page at our sister site, MaryJane Farmer’s 420Beginner.com.

But the fun doesn’t stop there–and neither do the LED Grow Light Reviews.  Our friends at LED Grow Lights Depot sell a wide variety of lights and growing products and they have put out their own Top Ten review for 2019.  Naturally it contains the products that they sell, but there is nothing against tooting your own horn.

Here at BigBudsguide, we don’t copy somebody else’s content but we certainly can comment on what someone else publishes. So here is a brief synopsis of the Top Ten LED Grow Lights as listed by the folks at LED Grow Lights Depot.

High Quality Quantum Boards in this LED grow light

The first light on their list is also an Amazon Choice and has a 5-star rating. This light is made with high-quality Quantum Boards designed by Horticulture Lighting Group. This light is suitable for commercial operations as well as home use.  You can read more about Quantum Boards from MaryJane Farmer here under “DIY LED Grow Lights.”

A good commercial LED grow light

The next light is Gavita’s top of the line and most powerful model.  Again, this is a good light for commercial operations but maybe a bit pricey for the smaller grower.  This light has a low profile, which would be useful in low-ceiling rooms or in vertically stacked multiple grow spaces.  The company claims that it’s multilayer LED construction allows a more uniform light distribution.

NextLight is the next light in the top ten grow lights list

The next light is in fact the NextLight Mega.  This is a 2016 design which has stood the test of time and is best for commercial operations.  It’s made in the USA and has a 5 year warranty.  It’s also sold on Amazon and it’s kind of pricey at $1525.50 but LED Grow Lights Depot offers a 15% discount at checkout.  Buy on LedGrowLightsDepot.com

Research says this light grows better cannabis.

Another pricey light but well worth it because of the high-quality Cree LED’s it sports is the Optic 8+.  The company claims that “Research shows significant increases in trichome density, volume & terpene profile.”

Legalize Tomatoes (and cannabis) with Black Dog LED Grow Lights

Moving to number 4, is another pricey choice, this one from the well-known Black Dog line of LED Grow Lights. These lights are also made in the USA and come from Amazon in a bundle that includes a “Legalize Tomatoes” sticker, good for those American backwater states where MaryJane is not welcome. (Check out MaryJane’s interactive Global Weed Infographic of US and world cannabis laws, soon to be updated with the 2018 Revolution.) Black Dog has several lights in various sizes with various add-ons.  Here are a few of them.

We know the Electric Sunshine from 420Beginner

Light number 5 is from our friend Dan at the Green Sunshine Company.  You can read MaryJane’s interview with Dan here.  This is a 2-pack set of ES300 lights which can be placed closer together or farther apart depending on your plant spacing.  The virtue of the Electric Sky is in its lensing system which reduces wasted light by directing more of the light straight down instead of losing it out to the sides. Again, not available on Amazon but you get a 5% discount on the two-pack at checkout on the Depot. Buy on LedGrowLightsDepot.com

Do It Yourself and save some bucks on a high quality LED Grow Light

The next light is a DIY project which requires putting together the four Quantum Boards comprising the HLG 600.  The Depot calls this light its “best bang for the buck” light at $692.00. Buy on LedGrowLightsDepot.com .  However, if you are handy with Do It Yourself projects requiring no more than a screwdriver and a wire stripper, you can save a ton of money by buying one or more of the same Quantum boards from Amazon. This light has several positive reviews raving about the light, about customer support from HLG and about the ease of assembly.  LED Grow Lights Depot also has a video showing how to put the light together.

Raging Kush for commercial cannabis growers with stacked grow boxes

The Scynce LED Raging Kush light is aimed at the commercial market, particularly vertical grow operations (stacked tiers of plants) but small growers can certainly use it as well.  There are two unique features of this light: (1) a patented lensing system that spreads the light more evenly and reduces the central hot spot that some other lights have and (2) an Android app to control timing and spectrum.  The light is $1395.00 and is brand-new on the market so you might have to pre-order. For a 10% discount buy on LedGrowLightsDepot.com

A commercial-grade LED Grow Light with a discount

California Lightworks SolarXtreme 1000 is a new model from this well-known company and it is targeted to the home grower, without the remote control and other  functions that California Lightworks puts in its pricier commercial-grade lights.   The SolarXtreme 1000 is a powerful light with a heavy power consumption at 800 watts but its price of $899 takes some of the sting out of that.  It is sold as a plug-and-play light that can be set up in minutes by even the newest noob.  Get 5% off when you buy on LedGrowLightsDepot.com

High Power light with a lower power consumption and another discount

Here is another high-powered LED Grow Light suitable for any operation, the Crecer PanthrX.  It has a full spectrum with added red just like the California Lightworks light above and it has a similar power replacement profile, but draws about 200 fewer watts.  It has a connector to add dimmers for the high-quality Cree LEDs.   The Depot tested it in a 4×4 grow tent and reports a higher PAR value at the edges than other lights.  At $999 this is again a pricey light, but worth the price for the high power.   You can get a 7% discount if you buy on LedGrowLightsDepot.com

That’s it for the Top Ten LEd Grow Lights list from LED Grow Lights Depot.  Take advantage of the discounts in this list today because they certainly won’t last forever.

Need More Profits from Your Cannabis Products?

If you are wondering where all the money in growing cannabis went, read this article from a very experienced grower who has some insights about growing weed for money that might have escaped the small cannabis producer.

Joshua Haupt has been growing for a few years now.  Even though he still uses old technology (inefficient and costly HPS lighting), his basic message is right on point: “Focus on efficiencies, big time.”

Read his interview in MJBizDaily.  MaryJane Farmer  will try to post a longer interview with Joshua in the future, but take note of his interest in researching LED Grow Lights.  We know where the best LED Grow Lights can be found at the best prices, so check out our reviews too.

Medical Marijuana (Machine Readable)

Nature’s Remedy in A Bottle

We occasionally publish guest articles of note and here is one from a writer who has improved the original Wikipedia.org article on Medical Cannabis by making it compliant with accessibility standards. As this author writes, she is “the co-creator of Dopa, an alternative to Wikipedia that covers critical health subjects and meets 100% website accessibility standards (over 220 pages).” Accessibility standards are of course important to those who need machine-readable information, like my friend George Burrell Gary. Being blind did not stop him from climbing Kilimanjaro but it definitely makes the internet less available to . him in certain ways. So kudos to Dopa and to Tina Richardson. And here is the link to her improved version of the Wikipedia Medical Cannabis article.

Cannabis Oil vs. CBD oil, What is the difference?

Cannabis oil vs. CBD oil

Cannabis oil and CBD oil have been known for their pain relieving and other beneficial properties. But many people confuse between the two. One of the reasons for this confusion is that both have cannabinoids. There is no regulatory guideline as well. Cannabis oil vs. CBD oil, what is the difference? There are some sharp differences between the two. Here we are going to discuss the differences.

CBD oil

CBD oil is used for medicinal purposes. It is useful in treating pain, sleeping disorders, epileptic seizures, pain, etc. CBD is a chemical compound that is extracted from the hemp plants. Both hemp and cannabis plants contain CBD.  But the hemp plant doesn’t contain THC which gives that ‘high’ or psychoactive effect. CBD has health benefits similar to that of THC. The advantage of CBD oil is that it is non-psychoactive.

Cannabis oil

It is an extract from the leaves of cannabis plants. It contains more than 100 active compounds. Among these CBD and THC are the most important ones. Cannabis oil is the extract that contains all the components of marijuana. It contains THC as well.  It is used for both medicinal and recreational drug.

Cannabis oil vs. CBD oil, what’s the difference?

Cannabis oil and CBD oil both have medicinal properties. They are beneficial for various health issues. Here are some of the significant differences between cannabis oil and CBD oil.

  • Cannabis oil contains a high percentage of THC compound that can alter the mind or produces ‘high.’ CBD oil, on the other hand, doesn’t contain THC. So, it is not addictive. It is beneficial in reducing depression, anxiety, and other diseases.
  • As CBD oil doesn’t contain THC, it is legal in all the states of U.S and Canada. It is also legal in Europe, except in Slovakia. Cannabis oil is legal in places where marijuana is legal.
  • Cannabis oil has more benefits over CBD oil as it has the THC compound. THC has anti-inflammatory properties and is an effective pain reliever.
  • THC and CBD in cannabis oil have anti-cancer effects. It can relieve pain. It is more effective in relieving pain than CBD oil.
  • CBD oil is a non-psychoactive substance, so it won’t give the ‘high’ that occurs due to the presence of THC. Perfect CBD Dosage doesn’t have side effects like paranoia, anxiety, eye dryness, etc. that may be associated with cannabis oil. Users can experience euphoric reactions by using cannabis oil.
  • CBD oil has higher concentrations of CBD and no trace or minimum trace of THC. Cannabis oil, on the other hand, has high traces of THC and low traces of CBD. So, CBD oil is safer to use.

Why is CBD oil better than cannabis oil?

The obvious reason why CBD oil is better than cannabis oil is that it doesn’t contain THC that causes a psychoactive reaction. Cannabis oil has a high amount of THC, so it’s illegal in many places. You will easily find CBD oil; whereas, you need to know the law of every state to use cannabis oil. CBD oil doesn’t have some of the side effects that people have when using cannabis oil. Moreover, CBD oil provides a lot of health benefits and is a safer option compared to cannabis oil.

When you buy CBD oil, you should read the labels to know the source of CBD. You should also see the ratio of CBD and THC. If you are looking for a natural and safe health supplement, then you can use CBD oil. Though the FDA does not yet approve CBD oil, many people are already discovering the benefits of CBD oil. Research works are still going on to find out more about the healing properties of CBD.

Top 10 Best Dandelion Killer

best dandelion killer

Taking care of your garden is not a hard chore if you know what to do. Dandelions might look lovely but having them around might not be your idea of a delightful garden. Finding the Best Dandelion Killer will allow you to take care of the annoying weeds without affecting the health of your plants.

There are a lot of chemicals that claim to kill dandelions, but some of them might be harmful to other plants in your garden especially in the long run. Dandelions tend to spread fast and they are going to affect the health of your plants and damage the landscape you’ve spent time and effort to bring to life. This article is dedicated to people who want to take matters into their own hands. Buying the best products will make gardening jobs a breeze.

Why Do You Need to Buy the Best Dandelion Killer?

To the naked eye, dandelions look like cheerful yellow flowers. But the truth is that this broadleaf weed can affect the health of all your plants. Dandelions have very deep roots that suck the nutrients out of your soil, limiting your other plants to the substances they need to flourish. They can grow in any type of soil and can survive in extreme weather conditions.

Even when you have removed the weeds, you will see that they can easily come back. The roots remain alive and healthy in the soil, waiting for the right moment to grow back again. Unless you have removed all the roots completely, the weeds will grow back. They might take years or weeks, but they will always grow back.

Removing dandelion roots by hand is not the most practical solution. No matter how careful you are, you will always miss some. The best weed killer for dandelions takes care of the roots that you can’t see.

Broad-spectrum herbicides will kill any grass or weeds that they get in contact with. While they can be effective at eliminating dandelions, they will also kill any green plants they get in touch with. Getting rid of the annoying dandelions will also kill your valuable plants. Moreover, these broad-spectrum herbicides are always too harsh. They can cause irritation so you need to be extra careful while dealing with them.

Buying a special product that takes care of dandelions is a smart decision. These products will target the annoying dandelions and will not affect the rest of your garden. A selective herbicide can be sprayed all over your lawn and nothing but the annoying weeds will get affected.

How to Choose the Best Dandelion Killer?

A farmer or professional gardener would know how to pick the best product to get rid of weeds. But if you are trying to take things into your own hands, then you might be overwhelmed by the number of products on the market. In this section, we will highlight a few factors that will help you choose the right dandelion killer for your garden or lawn.

Selective and Non-Selective Herbicides

Herbicides that are used to get rid of weeds like dandelion, clover and ground ivy are either selective or non-selective. Selective products will target your dandelions only. They will not affect any other plants in your garden or lawn even if they get in contact with them. These are used when you are trying to maintain your landscape or wish to help your plants grow faster.

Non-selective herbicides are used in driveways and sidewalks. This is where you want to get rid of the stubborn dandelions and other weeds but they will kill all the other plants as well. These will keep your area vegetation-free.

Emergence

Weed killers are either pre-emergence or post-emergence. The pre-emergence products should be applied two or three weeks before the weeds start to appear. They will prevent them from growing and will keep your lawn weed-free.

If you are currently dealing with an invasion of annoying dandelions or other weeds, then you need to use a post-emergence herbicide. This has to be applied to the leaves and other visible parts of the plant to kill it.

Persistence

This is another factor to consider when you are trying to maintain your own garden or lawn. Some products work fast but have to be regularly applied to keep weeds at bay. If you want to save some cash in the long run, then you probably need to look for a long-lasting product. This will stay effective long after it has been applied. You will probably have to wait weeks or months before you have to worry about dealing with weeds again.

Rainproof

The weather condition plays a great role in how potent your weed killer is going to be. Look for a product that becomes rainproof fast. This will guarantee that your weed killer will stay efficient and effective. It won’t get washed out by the rain and will kill the roots of the weeds.

Reviews of the Best Dandelion Killers on the Market

In order to pick a potent dandelion killer, you need to do some research so you can guarantee that the rest of your plants will always be in great health. In this section, we asked our experts to review some of the best products on the market. Go through our detailed reviews in order to pick the right one:

Fertilome Weed-Out Lawn Weed Killer

This amazing product is a mixture of 3 potent weed killers that will get rid of all the annoying weeds in your garden. It is strong enough to deal with more than 200 types of broadleaf weeds including stubborn dandelions that don’t seem to go away easily.

This weed killer is going to rid of ground ivy, chickweed, spurge, and wild onions. You can rest assured knowing that your plants will get all the nutrients they need to stay healthy and in the best shape. This weed killer comes ready to use. You don’t have to mix it with any other chemical. You will save your time as you can use it as a spot treatment. Just apply it where the roots are young and growing and watch the weeds as they wilt fast. In a few days, you will see that the weeds are turning brown. But the best thing is that they will never come back. This is a concentrated formula that you have to dilute. It is going to last a very long time and shows good results within one week of application.

This weed killer eliminates different types of weeds without affecting your grass or garden. You can spray it on the annoying weeds and watch your plants become healthier.

Pros:

  • A potent mixture of three strong chemicals.
  • Works to eliminate more than 200 types of broadleaf weeds.
  • Keeps your plants healthy.
  • Get rid of your weeds in less than 1 week.

Cons:

Roundup Extended Control
