Cree 304 Series Flood Beast

So I was looking at Cree website, and noticed that they have a series called the 304 series. I have noticed that my local gas stations have been switching their lights from Metal Halides to these insane LEDs (not sure if they're using Crees') and man, these things are BRIGHT. I saw that you can get them in 5700K as stated on the website. I want to apply this to growing so bad. Has anyone done this? I wonder, since they are a part of a commercial lighting series, that it might be hard to obtain them. Depending on how much they are, I might just do this.

I've been seeing better growth with lower color, like 4500k and 4000k

the growth with 6500k and under is fine, but I think cannabis likes red also , even in veg.

Depends on the 'spread' of light too so this may not be a good fit for plants. If there are lenses on the leds - say 90degrees - that would be great. But - if it's like most flood type lights - something like 120dgrees or so - than no go imo.
