If you want to REALLY become technically proficient about lighting, get on grow lighting. Taylor Schaberg has been in the business for quite awhile and he tells us heโ€™s still learning. You want to light a warehouse, throw up some high bays. You want to light a cannabis greenhouse? Wait a minute, what strain of cannabis is it? How strong do you want it to be? Then there are the controls that you need to set to mimic night and day. And then thereโ€™s the heat and moisture controls! Taylor is all for educating lighting professionals who want to get into the grow lighting business.

Taylor is the Founder and CEO of Active Grow. He started working in lighting back in 2011 when he lived in a factory in Nanjing, China. This was during the time when commercial LEDs were starting to flood the American and European markets. He then got a job with Green Creative in Shanghai during their early days, as a product manager.

He was always intrigued by how spectrums can manipulate organic life, and the idea of sustainable food and medicine production. So he designed and built an LED prototype to test on a friendโ€™s cannabis farm in California. The tests were successful so he drove a beat up van full of samples from Eau Claire, WI to Seattle, WA and started Active Grow.

In the early days of the company he lived on a cannabis farm, did hands-on research and learned what it takes to grow healthy and thriving plants. Today Active Grow offers a variety of grow lights not only for cannabis growers but microgreen businesses, mushroom farms, vertical farms, plant-based food production facilities and more.
