You’ve worked hard on your commercial grow space. Like a mad scientist, you test pH levels, precisely measure moisture, and strictly harvest your hemp at its peak maturity.

But when you’re growing large, leafy plants in tight spaces, finding the best lighting for your plants may be your biggest headache. Are your plants getting too little or too much light? Do you need to buy multiple lights to get you from seed to harvest? Can’t one light do it all?

Kind LED Lighting is declaring a resounding, “Yes!” Kind LED invites you to kick up your feet and rest your mind. This trusted brand has recently released the most important innovation in LED grow lamps since, well, LED lights. It’s called the X².

The Kind LED X² Difference

This commercial LED light was designed with the help of motivated engineers, agricultural scientists and hydroponic experts. Kind LED’s X² brought these fields together for revolutionary results: larger, more potent yields and a superior return on investment.

As the legal status of hemp and marijuana continues to relax, more entrepreneurs are trying their hands at commercial grow operations. Fortunately for new indoor farmers, the makers of the X², who have been growing commercially for several decades, have plenty of experience reconciling common problems.

Greenhouse and indoor grow operations are restricted by practical and scientific puzzles. For example, tight spaces can be hard to fill with light, especially as the canopy expands and provides shade for lower leaves. In turn, growers struggle to find the “right” amount of light. As the plant grows through its stages, it needs different lighting spectrums which could cost thousands in regular bar lights.

Naturally, balancing the intensity, heat and spectrum is too big of a job for a single grow lamp⁠—until now.

The X² steps ahead of the rest as it’s the only light you’ll need from seed to harvest. Fully tunable and customizable, the X² comes with an optional compatible 3-channel controller that gives you complete control over intensity and spectrum. And for those of you looking to scale your operation, rest assured that the controller can adjust over 500 X² lights simultaneously.

Built to accommodate gardeners with limited space, the X² utilizes three concentric squares made from LED light bars. This design ensures your plant is getting maximum photons from top to bottom.

The light that plants predominantly use for photosynthesis ranges from 400–700 nm. Referred to as Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR), this range includes red, blue and green wavebands, which match the LEDs on the X². With the X², you have full control over your spectrum.

With larger, healthier yields, you can expect a better return on your investment. LED lights always held promise for indoor gardeners. They’re cooler than standard HIDs and use about half of the electricity. Don’t waste money on high electricity bills from lighting and air conditioning.

With over 75,000 hours of lifetime use, you can expect to save money on replacing burnt out lamps, too. This LED light comes with a 5-year warranty to boot. The deluxe heatsink keeps your plants and electronic elements cool, preserving the life of your equipment for years to come.

Why is this grow lamp so important?

It wasn’t long ago that LED lights hit the market with promises of using less electricity while emitting intense light and keeping their cool.

But the people behind Kind LED, as well as many other cannabis growers, were quickly disappointed. They found LEDs didn’t have the intensity and spectrum needed to effectively grow large, potent plants. Forced back into using energy-sapping, heat-producing HIDs, Kind LED felt there must be another way.

Ever since, Kind LED has been leading the industry in LED lighting innovation. The promises of LED lighting may have been too good to be true, but they were also too good to ignore. Kind LED bar lights have now become the world’s number one selling LED grow lights, but they didn’t stop there.

The X2 is an important step in cost-saving, heat-reducing LED lighting. Kind LED’s engineers ensured that this light is intense or dim depending on your plants’ needs and within an effective PAR for healthy growth. This light eliminates the need to move plants to special grow stations based on their growth stage. The X² saves growers time, money, headaches and valuable space.

July 8, 2020 /AxisWire/ Kind LED Grow Lights has announced the X², a game-changing innovation in commercial grow technology. Developed as the perfect solution to vertical racking and overhead grow operations, the X² was specifically designed for close proximity growing, capitalizing on valuable tiered growing space while maintaining a large coverage footprint and even PPFD output. This means increased harvest weight and quality, and unmatched potential for financial returns on your harvest.

The revolutionary concentric square design and unique diode arrangement of the X² definitively rejects the dated concepts and common shortcomings of popular LED fixtures, offering a more even PPFD across the canopy than the ubiquitous parallel bar design seen in commercial fixtures. This ensures you never sacrifice an inch of potential growth across the canopy or have to deal with any troublesome hotspots putting your harvest at risk, and ultimately increases production and overall plant health.

Every component of the X² has been over-engineered to withstand the rigors of commercial grow environments. Heat is potentially disastrous to electronic components, and the X²’s substantial heatsink means components remain cool, ensuring a safe grow environment and extending the lifespan of your fixture long beyond the competitors.

Taking cues from other award-winning lights in the Kind LED family, the X² features a 3-Channel fully customizable spectrum when paired with a compatible controller, enabling growers to match the needs of any plant at any stage of growth. This means only one fixture is needed to get the job done, from seed to harvest. When paired with a compatible controller, more than 500 X² fixtures can be controlled simultaneously.

“As a grower who first learned on LED lights over 10 years ago, I have always loved the possibilities that lay ahead,” said Brandon Okman, owner of Best Buds Botanical. “The X² by Kind LED has reached the pinnacle I hoped for. The raw science behind this light is something to be admired. From the quality build to the perfect balance of spectrum, you can tell they poured their heart and soul into this light. With the X² I can truly say we’ve reached the point of surpassing what your standard HPS can do. I’ve been able to save money on wattage and AC costs while improving my overall quality. Kind X² is the game-changer that this industry has been waiting for.”

“I have been testing the X² light against other LEDs on the market,” added Scott Bulkeley, lead cultivator at Top Shelf Cannaseurs. “Hands down, the X² has a far superior build quality over the other lights, which you can especially tell once you grow with one firsthand. It’s definitely been built to last and Kind didn’t cut any corners in the design, which is exactly what you want in a commercial light. Yield is similar to that what I’m used to with a DE light, which again, blows away the competition for LEDs. The control features are really easy to use and the added tunability feature is something no other company offers. This light is the whole package and then some, and I’m extremely happy with the results.”

Kind LED’s new X² fixture has a true PPF of 1650 μmol/sec with almost every photon absorbed by the plant, and an efficacy of 2.22 μmol/J. It features 384 OSRAM OSLON® SSL diodes and a max wattage of 750w, with a lifetime of over 75,000 hours and a 5-year warranty. Like all Kind LED products, this fixture is backed by industry-leading customer service. The X² will be available on July 8th, 2020, with a retail price of $1,695. An optional controller is also available for $299.95.
