My name is Henry Crespo and I am one of the three founders of Grow Light Central. I'm in charge of the day to day business, while my partners Alexa and Mike are the growing experts.
How did Grow Light Central come to be?
Alexa and I grew up together in a small town in Washington State. Shortly after graduating high school, I moved to Wyoming, while she went to California where she met Mike. A few years later, they got married. Today they have three children. And typing that just made me feel old.
Alexa and I stayed in touch through the years, but we did not meet again in person until our 20-year high school reunion last year. It was the first time Mike and I met, but we hit it off immediately.
The two of them had been growing "plants" indoors for almost 20 years. I have always dabbled myself throughout the years, but it was always just a personal hobby. They were doing it for profit.
With the recent changes in the Washington State law, Alexa and Mike had decided to move their family to Washington and start up a commercial grow operation. They mentioned running into some difficulties in securing the grow lights they needed and that was the conversation that led to Grow Light Central.
Why trust us with your business?
Together, the three of us have almost 50 years of experience with indoor growing. We started with fluorescent and HID lights, but are now using mostly LED grow lights.
Like many, we have had bad experiences with LED lighting. Most LED lights on the market are crap and even some of the ones that are good are only good for some plants, but not for cannabis. Due to a lack of good information, it can be difficult to figure out which lights work well and which don't
Luckily, we already made the mistakes, so now you don't have to. We have also done extensive research on all the top lights on the market and only feature lights on this website that have been proven to grow cannabis as well as, or better than, HID systems.
We are an online retailer that offers a selection of the top grow lights and accessories at prices that match, or beat, other stores. We aim to set ourselves apart by offering only quality American brands and providing top-rated customer service.
We are based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. We sell nationwide and also in Canada. We sell some product internationally (international customers, please contact us). We ship our products using FedEx, UPS, and First Class Priority Mail.
I have over 5 years of experience selling online and have managed to build up a good reputation with customers ad suppliers. Combining my ecommerce experience with Alexa's and Mike's extensive indoor gardening experience, we launched this website in May of 2015.
We have a great team and aim to continue improving our store and offering our customers the highest quality grow lights available at the best prices.
