Growing weed is pretty easy, but some strains can be trickier to grow than others. Some are delicate and need a lot of attention or are prone to disease or mold, while others are sturdy and can handle missing a watering for a day or two. Also, certain strains have adapted to specific climates, so it might not make sense to grow one suited to warm weather if you live in a cold place.
And to make things even easier, you may want to check out feminized or autoflower versions of them—feminized seeds don’t need to be sexed out to identify and get rid of pesky male plants; with autoflowers, you don’t have to worry about light changing, and you can harvest plants 2-3 months after seeds sprout.
Tried-and-true, Blue Dream is a classic and one of the most popular strains, for both consumers and growers. This cross of Blueberry and Haze originated in Northern California and is a dream to grow—it usually grows big and strong and has high yields of buds, likely a result of its sativa-dominant genetics. Be sure to scrog it to maximize yields.
Its sturdiness gives it a large margin of error when growing, in case you forget to water or give it nutrients, or give it too many nutrients for that matter. Blue Dream grows well in many different climates, both indoors and outdoors and can handle cold nights.
This strain can handle many climates, both indoors and outdoors, but it can take a long time to flower—more like nine or ten weeks. Regardless, GMO Cookies is a new standard that packs a punch and brings some great savory scents to your garden.
This cross of legendary Super Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk will definitely bring some lemon scents to your garden. Super Lemon Haze has some strong sativa in its genetics, so it likes slightly warmer climates with a little more humidity, but it is still versatile and can thrive in most places.
A relative newcomer to the strain world, Wedding Cake is a Cookies cross that launched a whole new family of cake strains, such as Ice Cream Cake, LA Kush Cake, Cake Batter, and so much more.
This is a strong, sturdy plant that doesn’t need much attention, but be sure to give it plenty of space to stretch out—it grows tall, like parent Lemon Skunk. Scrogging always helps, but you’ll likely get solid yields even without it. SLH usually takes a little longer to flower, around nine weeks, another sign of its sativa roots, so you may need to be a little patient when waiting to harvest this one.
So here are five strains that are easy to grow for beginners: they grow strong, yield high, can grow in many different climates, and have a forgiving margin of error.
Another relatively new strain, GMO Cookies will smell like nothing you’ve ever grown before—its nickname is “Garlic Cookies.” Crossing two classic strains, GSC and Chemdog, GMO has dense, sticky, light green buds with orange hairs and is a high yielder. Its trichome levels make it a good one for pressing your own hash.
Its indica-dominant genetics means it usually grows short and stout, but it still gets solid yields and has dense buds. You’ll want to be sure to prune and top Wedding Cake to get rid of some of its foliage, for fear of it developing mold. This frosty strain is covered in trichomes and will be a sticky one in your garden, but its sweet citrusy smells with hints of vanilla make it a pleasure to grow.
Sour OG is a great strain for beginners looking to grow something a little different. This OG Kush and Sour Diesel cross has a complex mix of scents—skunk, spice, and of course fuel, with some hints of pine and lemon.
The OG Kush genes come out in its dense buds, but it can take more humidity and does well when trellised or scrogged. Its got a moderate flowering time—about 8 weeks—yields well, and is a tough plant. If you’re looking for something a little more potent and with a unique flavor profile, Sour OG may be for you.
Super Lemon Haze.
With a name like Hulk, needless to say, this strain will instantly result in a stimulating high coursing through your veins, so it is advisable to go slow on Hulkberry until you are sure you can handle what it carries!
After you’ve chosen your perfect strain, grow your plants in a Pot for Pot. We make it easy to grow marijuana plants on your patio, in your yard or even in your greenhouse. Before you know it, it’s time to harvest, and you’re enjoying the fall with some homegrown treats of your own.
Harvest up to a pound.
The buds produced from this strain are spicy, skunky, and fragrant, leaving your body relaxed, and your spirit lifted. Like Hulkberyy and Moby Dick, however, Super Silver Haze grows huge, so you will need to provide ample space for this plant to thrive. Super Silver Haze traces its roots to Skunk, Haze and Northern Lights.
However, an outdoor grow environment also presents unique challenges, such as temperature variations, torrential rain and a higher risk of pest and disease incidents. It is, therefore, essential to select the most appropriate cannabis strains for growing outdoors so that your efforts aren’t in vain when the time comes to harvest your crop. Here is our carefully compiled list of the best weed strains to grow outside, based on their ability to reward you for your efforts.
The 1.5kg yield per plant harvest will take your breath away, especially given the fact that Moby Dick can have a THC content of about 21%. The high immediately hits your head, with a citrus, woody, and pine aroma. The huge colas are great for those who love making marijuana edibles and extracts. In just 65-70 days, Moby Dick will begin flowering and you can start the countdown to your jaw-dropping harvest!
If you are growing outdoors and want the largest possible yield, then Hulkberry is the strain for you! This sativa-dominant breed is the product of mixing Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush genetics. With a THC content topping out at 27%, Hulkberry grows to a massive 2m in height and will give you a huge bounty of about 700g per plant.
When it comes to heartiness, Super Silver Haze is just as good as White Widow, so it needed to be on this list. Super Silver Haze is easy to grow, quickly taking root and thriving wherever it is.
This hybrid is famous throughout the marijuana world for many reasons, most of which started with awards in the 1990s. After that, the strain left the Netherlands, eventually becoming what it is today.
When White Widow and Haze were bred, Moby Dick was born. This giant can tower to 3m in height if left to its own devices outdoors, so only opt for this strain only if you have plenty of outdoor space to grow it.
White Widow has a high THC content that is known to raise one’s mood while also easing aches and pains. The colas are covered with a thick, white-colored resin that gives the strain its name. That resin also helps make this strain resistant (to a certain extent) to fungi, pests and diseases. This is why we recommend it for outdoor growers since they face a reduced risk of failure due to one of those variables. In terms of yield, expect to harvest about 300g per plant.
This strain is a huge hit among beginners because it is hardy and resistant to many of the common fungi and pests that plague cannabis plants. This low-maintenance variety is in pure heaven when grown in hot climates. However, you will do well in moderate conditions if you provide shelter, such as a greenhouse, where conditions are warm and ample sunshine gets to the plants.
