Some use CFL light with 2700 lumens per bulb for veg. Search the forum for Wally World Light. I just switched to using this as opposed to my HPS for veg. Cheaper and stays at a cooler temp.

Some use Metal Halide for veg. This is said to be the best but have no basis for comparison as I have never used one.

Some use HPS for veg. I did and it worked great.

HPS for flowering is the way to go IMHO

Metal Halide lighting is by far the best vegetatively... but you absolutely need a High Pressure Sodium for blooming... so unless ur full of money to buy both, u'd be looking for a HPS.

yea although MH can still get you some good smoke- and its known for promoting good trichome production- with an hps your yield will come close to doubling.
