Growing cannabis can be daunting and simple at the same time. Daunting, if you do not figure out the basic things to do, and simple if you make your research and follow the steps tenaciously. To grow cannabis successfully, you have to figure out the different cannabis strains and their peculiarities.
Factors to Consider before Choosing a Strain
Quick Flower: First-time growers are always advised to start with auto-flowering seeds to ensure that they do not run into much trouble. Auto-flower strains produce flowers in 2 to 3 months of planting, ensuring that you do not get depressed waiting for the harvest.
Cost: Beginner growers should go for high-yielding but less expensive strains so that should things go south, they would not be so disappointed. This is important because even with the best available growing knowledge, the result could still not turn out as desired, especially for a beginner.
Strains with Fewer Growing Needs: An amateur grower should seek a strain with less demanding growing needs. If you choose a more complex strain that requires strenuous attention, you may get frustrated along the line.
High Yield: You should check the strain yield before choosing to maximise profit, which is the essence of commercial cannabis farming.
Some Easy-Growing Cannabis Strains
The best way to start your cannabis-growing journey is to use strains that can grow without hassle. Go for easy growing strains that have been established over the years through research and experimentation. Fortunately, less difficult-to-grow strains abound. They include:
Auto Mazar: Auto Mazar is a prominent auto-flower strain. It is a mixed-breed of indica, Mazar, and ruderalis varieties. It grows easily and performs incredibly well irrespective of its growing environment – hydro-system or soil. It yields top-quality seeds that give a potent, enduring high and euphoric experience. It usually completes its life cycle within 70 to 100 days and is greatly resistant to pests.
Green Crack: Green Crack is a cross-breed of indica and sativa. It grows well indoors and outdoors and flowers in about eight (8) weeks. It possesses a unique mango flavour and overwhelmingly energises and offers profound “high” to users. Green Crack assists consumers in combatting fatigue and depression. Its ability to get consumers “high” is a plus for inspiration and creativity; thus, it helps cannabis enthusiasts blossom through their day.
Alaskan Thunderfuck: Alaskan Thunderfuck is a hybrid of sativa and indica with high THC and about 0.8% CBD. It is genetically adapted to be grown indoors and outdoors. When grown outdoors, it thrives under adequate sunlight in a warm and semi-humid climate. It flowers in about 8 to 10 weeks. Alaskan Thunderfuck is not difficult to grow and gives a yield that far outweighs whatever input you made in the cultivation. It provides a celebrated and speedy high that ensures a happy day and is an antidote for stress and fatigue.
Special Queen 1: Special Queen is almost a perfect (50:50) cross-breed of sativa and indica. It is a beginner grower’s friend. It is cheap, grows effortlessly, and is ready for harvest in about 8 to 9 weeks. It grows excellently both indoors and outdoors but requires adequate sunlight when it grows outside. It has high THC that gets consumers “stoned” and is ideal for recreational and medicinal purposes.
