Most of us learned during primary science projects that plants need light to grow.
Plants also need light to sell. You wouldn’t spend thousands of dollars on a wedding ring if the lighting in the showroom was dim.
The same goes for cannabis. If someone pulls out a flower for you to examine, lighting matters.
Luna Cultivation Consultants specifies and sells lighting for dispensaries and growing facilities, from growing rooms to showrooms, as well as offices, corridors and parking areas.
Founder and CEO Dañiel Luna-Fuller retired as a military engineer and spent 10 years in the lighting industry before starting his business in 2017.
A year later he was working with cannabis customers.
When you think of lighting for cannabis customers, most people probably think of the light that is used to grow real plants. And while lighting up the farmhouse is key, it’s much more than that.
Here, Luna-Fuller sheds light on the importance of lighting solutions in the world of cannabis.
Why does cannabis lighting matter?
Growing up cannabis is not easy. Proper lighting is as essential to plants as getting the right nutrients they need to grow.
In other words, growing cannabis with a $ 100 light you bought on Amazon probably won’t cut it.
How can a cultivator find the right lighting system?
Finding the right lighting system depends a lot on your growing space, your budget, and your goals.
We understand plants, their growth stages, and the type of lighting they need to succeed cultivation. In addition, we work with electricians familiar with the industry and can help you find installers.
Why is lighting important in dispensaries?
Dispensary lighting is essential.
On the one hand, security will always be an issue whenever there is cannabis. When cannabis was converted legal in Illinois, many dispensaries saw lines down.
A well-lit building, including the car park and entrance, provides much-needed security. In addition, in the same dispensary, the right lighting in an exhibition hall provides a feeling of cleanliness and class.
How does a “one-stop shop” philosophy benefit producers and dispensary owners?
Lighting supply chain and growth supply chain are different beasts. However, cannabis growers have to deal with both.
Luna Consultants was modeled after the big lighting distributors, and we took the extra step to help producers and dispensary owners know what they need and why.
This is because traditional electricians are unaware of the complexities of crop lighting. Does the light output change with voltage? Can lights be chained in a farmhouse?
We answer these questions. Not only do we supply the lights, we also coordinate the installation, making sure our customers have the right kind of lights and the best setup to grow, display and sell your cannabis products.
