Introduction/Overview:
I was chosen to test the Cultivate Tech Bud Beast LED for the Cannazone .
  • Company Name:
    Cultivate Tech by Eco-Story
    Product/Service Website:
    https://cultivatetech.com/collections/all
    Top Three Features:
    Dimmable Dual Spectrum
    High Powered Light
    Great Coverage
    The problem and the promise?:
    It is supposed to have a Bluetooth App and dimmer but mine did not come with it so i bought dimmers from my local hardware store which are just normal dimmers like you would see in a house.
    Purchased From?:
    Test for Cannazone
    Purchase Price:
    Donated for testing
    ok guys so the Bud Beast is just that a Beast of a lamp! It is 800 Watts on full power ran by 4 meanwell 185 drivers and they state a 6x4 footprint and covers my 4x4 area and then some.Lights are a 50-50 split between 660nm red diodes and full spectrum 5000K white diodes, each color adjustable via the Cultivate Tech App. I believe it would be better suited for an open grow room grow as opposed to a grow tent. Here are some vides from un-boxing and such

    Those PPFD results in the corners and edges are pretty impressive. Are those factory supplied readings or did you measure them yourself?

      They are straight from cultivate techs site. I believe them to be very close because this this is a very powerful light

      I'm trying to upload finished plant pics but it wont load them because they are too large(8mb) and they need to be smaller than 2mb and I have no idea how to adjust them
