THE NEED FOR AN INDUSTRY LEADER IN HOMEGROW EQUIPMENT SAFETY
As Canada and individual states in America begin to legalize growing cannabis in the household, there has been a strong push back from fire departments, real estate boards and condominium boards alike. The main argument from these interest groups is that growing cannabis in the household is unsafe, a fire hazard, and can cause serious mold and mildew issues. Their argument is only half correct though, applying only to those home grow setups that use High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting or LED lighting that is not ETL certified.
THE FOURBUDZ SAFETY MISSION
It is the mission of FourBudz to change the negative image of growing cannabis at home by making it as safe, eco-friendly and affordable as possible. It is for this reason that we do not offer HID lighting options with our grow kits, and only sell energy efficient LED lighting that is fully certified and ETL listed. We are a family run company and want our customers to go to sleep with the same peace of mind we do - with the knowledge that they and their families are protected through the safest grow equipment on the market.
WATCH OUT FOR SCAMS AND ETL 'COMPONENTS'
Be educated in your equipment purchases, and look for equipment that carries the ETL logo, not just "ETL components". This is a common trick companies use, suggesting that their product is ETL certified when really it just contains ETL components. There is no way of knowing whether the product is safe, how many components are actually ETL listed, or whether the final product is assembled according to North American safety guidelines.
SAFETY FEATURES UNIQUE TO FOURBUDZ
As well as top level safety certifications, FourBudz grow lights have a built in safety net no other light on the market has. The display on the FourBudz pro3 grow light consistently displays the status of the lights cooling system, alerting growers of any malfunctions immediately and before the LED chips burn out and become a fire or safety hazard.
