Product Update! Black Dog LED Platinum XLU

Written By Chewberto420

Product Update..

Black Dog Platinum XLU LED Light

The Black Dog LED Platinum XLU Light was tested along Side standard 1000w HPS lighting. I used the same Clone Only Strain of Gods Gift to do the test. The Medium was A depleted Soil that was Void of any Nutrients, and I used Dragonfly Earth Medicine Line. Exact Same size Pot, Feeding schedule, and treatment.

Early Veg looking through the Method Seven Black Dog Operator glasses.

image1

After a Complete Cycle from Vegetative through Bloom, here are my thoughts...

Note-All Pictures will Portray LED on left side or Top…

6 days in Bloom

Early on in flower I noticed that The led side created a more even flower set and canopy, and stayed a bit shorter than the HPS.

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (3)

27 days

After the stretch, the Led side remained a few inches shorter, but more even. Led resin is more abundant toward the leaf tips and in general. You can see the LED side (top pic) is more rich in green/chlorophyll and is loving the Light.

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (14)

36 days in bloom

At this point, I can see a slightly larger flower build on the HPS side, but the chlorophyll is less present on the HPS side and its fading faster. I have also begun to notice The LED side desires less water as well.

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (8) BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (5)

40 Days only LED

Gods Gift

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (2)

43 days in bloom

The Led Side is still moving along swimmingly, and desires no extra nitrogen, and is much more happy than the HPS. The buds are starting to dense up a bit faster on the Black Dog Side.

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (1) BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (13)

52 days in bloom

Its clear to see the trichomes are loaded on the LED side, and the Fan Leaves are green as can be and they aren’t showing any signs of stress.
Very happy plants..

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (7) BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (4)

62 days Harvest

LED is My Favorite at this point because the Sugar leaves are still caked and have not suffered from any light/heat stress like that on the HPS side, which means my trim will be more desirable to work with when making extracts.

There is simply just more resin, which is actually greasier, and it smells better.

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (12)

The side by side on dried and cured Gods Gift Flowers.

After a month in jars and a 2 week drying period, I’ve determined that the LED is a superior Product in quality and efficiency.

Here are the Numbers.

Gods gift Grown under Black Dog LED Platinum XLU was
94 grams @ 750 watts = .125 g/watt

Gods Gift grown under HPS was
107 grams @ 1050 watts = .102 g/watt
(note 1000 watt HPS Lights run higher than 1000 watt and 1050 is fair based on readings we have taken)

To calculate the efficiency:
.125 GPW LED Subtracted from .102 GPW HPS would equal 0.023 / .102 = 22.5% increase

The Aromas and Flavor is undeniable as compared to HPS.

Black Dog LED’s Platinum XLU Light is an all out Winner in every aspect.

BlackDogLEDUpdate1 (9)

The main thing that i noticed throughout flower was how much more Lush and Green the LED side was throughout Her Life in contrast to the HPS Side. Gods gift took the Environment like a champ and without any ill effect.

A huge benefit that i see is for for the grower struggling with heat in the grow room.

When Growing with LED it is important to raise the ambient room temperature to around 85 opposed to a conventional 75 degree sweet spot.. The reason this is necessary is because the Leaf surface temperature has to be high enough to achieve optimal photosynthesis, we achieve this by providing a warmer ambient temperature in the room. 

The LED side is much more forgiving and will withstand the higher temps without struggling to photosynthesize and transpire through the leaf because its been overheated…

Lets recap on the LED Benefits….

The smell on the LED side is Noticeably Brighter, richer, and more complex than the HPS side.

The density was on point, it wasn’t airy or larfy at all

22.5% more efficient to run.

The bag appeal is Very nice and equates visually.

The Flavor translate a bit sharper on the palette from LED.

It was less expensive to run for the duration of the grow.

Easily I would Say that the Black Dog Led Platinum XLU light does beat out a standard 1000w HPS when you factor in Efficiency, Operating Cost, fruit Quality, and over all health of the plant.

I will continue to use this light and update with thoughts. Here is a picture of my current Black Dog LED Grow that i am experimenting with mixed spectrum.

Shown is Sour Tangie at 24 days

Reasons to use Black Dog LED

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Black Dog LED products are warranted against defective materials and/or workmanship to original owners from the date of original purchase for the lifetime of ownership by the original consumer

Eco and cost friendly

Eliminates toxic Mercury required like that of HID and CFL Lighting. Generates less heat, resulting in reduction of energy costs from having to cool your grow space. Also the unit draws less energy when compared to a standard 1000w HID lighting system.

Yield

The Heavy T grow show offered a challenge for LED companies by doing an independent grow to compare yields stacked against standard HID Lighting. The results showed a 5% increase in yield from using the Black Dog LED. The Grower also commented on the fruits from the Black Dog by saying he preferred them opposed to the traditional HID grown Fruit… click the link for more info https://www.blackdogled.com/blogheavy-ts-grow-show/

  Quality

 Black Dog LED’s Phyto-Genesis Spectrum is designed to unlock the plants full potential, which in turn maximizes Terpenes. Terpenes are the aromatics from the flowers essential oils, which are crucial to creating flavorful and robust product. Terpenes also work hand in hand with medicinal value via the entourage effect. This helps create a better medicine, product, and connoisseur grade that is most desired.

Ingenuity and Innovation

Black Dog LED is the First of many in the LED industry, so you can be sure they have gone through the testing to bring you the most up to date technology when providing LED grow lights.

BLACK DOG LED WAS THE FIRST:

  • To offer true 3w LEDs with a single diode, instead of 3w3 with three 1w diodes, like most other “3w lights.”
  • To incorporate UV and IR light, which enhances taste and aroma, as well as speeding up flowering time.
  • To utilize warm and cool white chips to compensate for nanometers lacking in the spectrum.
  • To design a light with a full spectrum that uses up to 17 different light spectrums.
  • To incorporate a thermal cutoff switch, protecting your purchase of the most advanced LED grow lighting available
  • To dispel the hype and design a real 1000w HID replacement—the Platinum XL-U, which is the most powerful LED grow light on the planet, watt for watt and chip for chip.
  • To use high – flow and quiet ball bearing fans.
  • To incorporate all 18-gauge internal wiring, which eliminates any heat from impedance, further reducing wear on the light.
  • To own a SpectroRadiometer and conduct independent research on spectrum and its effects on photosynthesis and ultimately on plant yield and health.
  • And the only LED light company to offer a limited lifetime warranty!

Knowing they have paved the way in this industry will have you resting easy after joining the Black Dog LED family.

How to Winterize BHO “Dewaxing”

Written by Chewberto420

Winterization Is the process of removing all residual, solvents, waxes and fats from the final product using ethanol to make an “Absolute” product.

We do this to create a pure product that is easy on your lungs and safer for consumption.

If done properly you can create some tasty and super stable products.

DeWaxing (3)

1. Provide Quality single solvent Butane Hash Oil of any consistency.

We have a small batch of 6.0 Grams of crystalline BHO flake to winterize.

DeWaxing (7) DeWaxing (10) DeWaxing (2)

2. Use ethanol that IS NOT Denatured, I am using Everclear for this process.

DeWaxing (5)

3. Get your product ready!

DeWaxing (8)DeWaxing (7)

4. Grab a Clean Mason Jar with Lid and your Temp Gun…

DeWaxing (4)DeWaxing (6)

5. Pour the Everclear into the Mason Jar, you want to use around 1-2 oz of ethanol per gram of oil product. if you’d like to expedite the emulsifying process, you can heat up the ethonal to about 85-90 degrees Fahrenheit (No Open Flames), use your Infrared Temp gun and check your temps, make sure to stay around 85 degrees to preserve terpenes.

DeWaxing (11)

6. After your ethanol has reached a nice temp of 85 degrees,

Get Your  BHO product ( Firestomper OG from Firehouse Genetics Colorado)

and pour it into the ethanol mix.

DeWaxing (12)DeWaxing (14)

7. Put the lid on the Mason jar, and swirl the ethanol hash blend around to begin breaking down the mix until it is emulsified, and is one solution.

DeWaxing (17)DeWaxing (16)DeWaxing (18)DeWaxing (19)

Nice and Clear…

DeWaxing (20)

8. After you’ve mixed up your Ethanol and hash into a single clear solution, you are going to put this jar in the freezer for 24-48 hours. The freezing process will occur more rapidly under lower temps.

At this time, throw another clean Mason Jar into the freezer to prepare for the liquid transfer..

After 24-48 hours, you will notice Plant waxes and fats (lipids) coagulating within the liquid mix.

It is now time to filter..

Now Pour the Frozen Ethanol hash and lipid mix, into the other frozen mason jar, do this with a funnel and unbleached coffee filter. Make sure you do the filtering process inside the freezer the entire time, until it has finished.

You can also secure the Coffee  filter to the jar, by attaching just the ring for the lid to the jar.

10. After the product has filtered down into the new Frozen Mason jar, you will be left with a pristine golden liquid product void of plant waxes and fats…

What you see here, are all the residual Lipids  that were removed from our initial product that have no medicinal value . These lipids  make for a harsher dab/smoke, and are a serious burden to your respiratory system…

Now, Time to pour and Evaporate.

11. Grab a Pyrex dish of your choice, and pour your new filtered liquid onto the dish.

12. After you’ve poured the solution onto the Pyrex, Be sure to cover the dish with something breathable to deter airborne particles from contaminating the liquid while it is evaporating.

I put My dish into an empty cupboard.

Set the dish in any Room Temp area, and wait till it starts to evaporate and reduce down to oil.

13. When your product looks something like this, and is no longer a liquid state, but a goo state, you are now ready to scrape up and Vac-purge.

If you don’t have a Vacuum Oven/Chamber, you can allow it to reduce on a warm water bath, trying not to allow the oil to exceed 90 degrees.

Now, Scrape up your oil onto an Oil Slick pad, or unbleached parchment paper for the final step.

14. After you’ve scraped up the oil onto a non stick surface, put it into a vacuum oven/heated chamber to begin warming the oil mass until it has reached 85-90 degrees. Don’t vacuum until it has reached temp. After it has reached desired temps, you can begin vacuum purging  the remaining ethanol from the oil.

15. After the product has purged, you are all finished.

The amount of time to engage in the purging process is relative to the amount of oil that you are winterizing. This could take anywhere from 12-48 hours to purge.

You now have a beautiful “absolute” dewaxed BHO product,  residual free from lipids and butane.

The Dabsmith Honey dipper Tool is Very handy in serving up shatters, budders, and waxes , but most importantly,  gooey oils.

We all know that Hash oil can be challenging to work with and grab, but The Honey dipper  has no problem pulling up gooey Hash oil with the unique Hive like dipper head.
