Cannabis Producer Chooses VividGro GroBar™ Following Competitor Testing

Grower cites improved output, stability through seedling and vegetative growth stages and superior internodal spacing.

After running focused trials to compare the performance of four major competitors, Sam Hachey, co-owner of Tanana Herb Co. in Fairbanks, Alaska, has selected VividGro's GroBars™ as his sole lighting solution. Central to Hachey's decision was the ability to use the same bulbs from crack seedlings through the end of the vegetative state. In addition, Hachey found that his plants experienced no shock or bleaching at the flowering stage because GroBars do not emit as much heat as HPS lamps. The 3-inch bulb spacing provided even light distribution over the canopy, resulting in improved stacking and tight internodal spacing for ideal flowering habits.

Three years ago, Sam and his brother left the lower 48 to pursue their passion for cannabis cultivation in Alaska. "This is a way of life for us," Sam said. "It's not just a product or a revenue stream. I have seen the impact that high-quality cannabis and cannabis products can have on people battling serious illnesses. We do this with our blood, sweat and tears, because it helps real people live healthy lives." As the largest indoor cannabis grow facility in the state, Hachey looks forward to completing the transition to GroBar luminaires by the end of the year.
