It’s safe to say that many cannabis consumers likely don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the people who actually grow the plant for the public — let alone the conditions under which these cultivators work. Yet while growers are on the front line of the industry, because they operate behind the scenes, they don’t always receive the attention they deserve. This is especially true at a time when worker safety is far from a priority compared to regulations about when and where cannabis can be bought and sold, and who exactly is eligible to consume it. That’s why we at RayWear Clothing Company have made it our mission to protect cannabis cultivators who spend long hours laboring under the sun and beneath harsh grow lights.
Modern grow lights are an incredibly powerful and necessary tool that every indoor cultivator must have. These lights are designed specifically to affect the growth cycle of plants by producing extreme levels of radiation that help cannabis plants grow bigger, faster, and stronger. But common sense tells us there is a natural concern about harnessing the power of the sun and placing it in a light. In simple terms, the radiation produced by modern grow lights that are so beneficial for plant growth is the same radiation that is harmful to humans.
In our estimation, today’s growers are unsung heroes, and not only because they work tirelessly to cultivate a plant that means so much to so many, but because they are putting their health at risk — even if they don’t realize it. One of our goals is to educate the industry about the dangers posed by grow lights, and the other is to provide a practical and affordable solution to protect growers from the risks of overexposure to light radiation.

That’s where RayWear comes in. Our innovative line of light radiation protective gear is made with a patent-pending fabric blend designed to keep the wearer safe from light radiation.
