Northern Lights accounts for a huge portion of genetics in hybrid cannabis strains today, along with other fundamental breeding strains, Skunk #1 and Haze. Sensi Seeds’ Northern Lights is selectively bred by crossing original NL-1, NL-2, and NL-5 genetics, which were the only pure Northern Lights cultivars in existence. Northern Lights set the standard for which all other indica strains are still judged, growing to the epitome of Afghani expressions—compact, fast flowering plants filled with dense, sparkling resin-soaked buds that give powerful knockout, narcotic effects.

Do y’all take credit cards

I live in Thailand where things are easing up on growing do you deliver into Thailand … and how long would it take for a delivery ..thanks Cheers ………….Glen

Does anyone ever answer questions? I would like to know where these ship from. I live in the u.s I want something in the u.s so I don’t have wait months for 3 seeds or more.

Buy seeds from homegrown cannabis co. And look this guy up on YouTube name Kyle kushman there the shit! Easy ordering process and great tips for growing and excellent strains selection.

Go to cropking seeds they will deliver all over the world

The most i waited was 3 days from crop king seeds very large variety discreet shopping

Have you heard of Google? Apparently you just type in a question and it gives you the answer immediately

Hey Jason,
CropKing is in BC Canada. Their White Widow auto is amazing. If you do get it don’t fertilize but maybe once and a small dose. Very sensitive to over fertilizing, produces goofy buds of one tiny calyx per node, very tall with hollow stems. If you let it alone, in good soil, FF Ocean & Forest, one time quarter strength nutes, 1/4 tsp per gallon, at 3rd week, viola! The yield for a 2×2 tent 280 LED 5 gallon cloth pot was about 2.5 Oz dried, cured and manicured. I’d say it’s about 20-25%, 3 months tops. If the leaves start yellowing fairly early in flower don’t worry. That strain will have all leaves yellow before it’s ready, and so many colors will appear, red, pinks, purples, golds, by far the easiest plant I’ve ever grown. No worry about light cycles, never saw any mold, the hairiest buds I’ve ever seen. The buds are made for bud pornography. The only thing is the strain is a little unstable. Some plants have a lower calyx to leaf ratio, but their leaves make up for it with very frosty trichs. The other phenotype is low on lead high on flower with braids of red hairs.

ILGM has free shipping to the U. S.. It takes about two weeks to receive your order. They guarantee shipping and germination. ILGM.com

5 easy marijuana strains to grow for beginners

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.

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.

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.

Blue Dream

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.

Wedding Cake

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.

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.

Super Lemon Haze

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.

See also  Places to order cannabis seeds

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.

GMO Cookies

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.

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.

Sour OG

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.

The Easiest Cannabis Strains to Cultivate

There is a school of thought that suggests that cannabis strains are effectively the same. In reality, it is a case of sativa and indica strains not necessarily producing the effects they are ‘supposed’ to. Marijuana strains are not all created equal! There is weed blessed with top-shelf genetics and Mary Jane that is ‘middle of the road.’

There are strains with excellent resistance to mold, disease, pests, and drought, and weed that needs fewer nutrients than others. There are also marijuana strains ideal for novice growers because they are more forgiving of a few mistakes.

In this guide, we show you five strains that are easier to grow than most. If you are a beginner, we recommend either purchasing clones or seeds of one of these plants.

Please note that when we say a strain is sativa or indica, it is still a ‘hybrid’ of sorts. As far as experts are aware, there are no marijuana plants that are 100% indica or sativa.

Easiest Marijuana Seeds To Grow

If you are looking for easy-to-grow cannabis seeds that will sprout into high potency cannabis plants with generously high yields , you’ve come to the right place. This article will provide you with some of our favorite top-shelf marijuana strains that are easy to grow indoors and outdoors .

Easiest Strains to Grow Outdoors

When looking for some easy strains to grow outdoors, it helps if you live in a warm, sunny, Mediterranean-like climate. Certain cannabis plants thrive outdoors. Therefore, it is much easier (and far less costly) to grow these strains outside in an optimal climate rather than replicating the same conditions indoors.

If you want to grow a sizable crop, then a compact, indoor grow room is entirely unsuitable for cultivation.

Furthermore, some strains are naturally much larger than others. If you want to grow a sizable crop, then a compact, indoor grow room is entirely unsuitable for cultivation.

Another significant factor that helps make a strain easy to grow outdoors is high resistance to disease and pests.

We’ve taken all of these factors into account before compiling our list of five easy-to-grow outdoor marijuana strains . Check them out below.

1. Durban Poison

Durban Poison is one of the best and easiest marijuana strains to grow outdoors. It is a pure sativa plant and a high potency marijuana strain containing 21.5% THC, on average.

This cannabis plant thrives in temperate to sunny climates and grows well outdoors as long as it is not exposed to frost. It is also naturally resistant to mold and pests.

Durban Poison plants grow tall and can reach up to 90 inches in height when fully grown, so it is better suited to outdoor than indoor cultivation.

Outdoors, Durban Poison is typically ready for harvesting by late September or early October. Its outdoor yield is approximately 16 ounces or more per plant.

2. Northern Lights

Northern Lights is an almost pure indica (90-95%) marijuana strain that is highly resistant to disease. It is an easy strain to grow and does best outdoors in a warm, sunny, Mediterranean-like climate.

You can expect to harvest Northern Lights by the middle of October and get a return of around 22 ounces per plant. Check out our Northern Lights grow guide for more information.

3. Jack Herer

Jack Herer is a slightly sativa-dominant marijuana strain with an average THC content of 21%. It is naturally highly resistant to disease and thrives outdoors in a dry, Mediterranean-type climate. Growers rate Jack Herer’s growth difficulty as easy, so it is a fantastic strain for beginners.

4. White Widow

The White Widow strain does best in sunny, warm weather. However, it adapts well to cooler climates. White Widow cannabis plants are generally ready for harvesting by the end of October. Successful outdoor crops result in high yields of 21 ounces or more per plant.

For more helpful tips, check out our White Widow grow guide.

5. Mango Kush

Mango Kush is a tropical-tasting indica-dominant marijuana strain that contains up to 21% THC. It thrives outdoors in warm, sunny weather, is easy to grow, and is highly resistant to disease.

Outdoor growers can expect a return of 16 ounces per plant and to harvest by mid to late October.

If you are considering growing this strain, then check out our Mango Kush grow guide for some helpful pointers.

Easiest Strains to Grow Indoors

We realize that not everyone is fortunate enough to live in a part of the world with a warm, sunny climate. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the five easiest strains to grow indoors for our readers below.

What makes a marijuana strain easy to grow indoors? Well, one that is resistant to common mold and mildew definitely helps. Experienced indoor growers will tell you the importance of controlling humidity levels. It is absolutely vital to prevent excess humidity levels in an indoor grow room, or your crop could potentially be destroyed by bud rot.

Autoflowering strains automatically transition to the flowering stage without the need to adjust the lighting schedule.

Another aspect of indoor cannabis cultivation that novice growers struggle with is managing and adjusting the lighting schedule from the vegetative to the flowering stage. That is why we have included a couple of autoflowering strains in the list below. Autoflowering strains automatically transition to the flowering stage as they mature without the need to adjust the lighting schedule.

Here are five of the easiest marijuana strains to grow indoors.

1. Easy Bud Auto

With a name like Easy Bud Auto you know you’re in for a straightforward growing experience. Easy Bud Auto goes from seed to harvest in about eight to nine weeks indoors.

Please note that this marijuana strain has a modest average THC level of 12% and provides just 11 ounces of bud per square meter.

2. Quick One Auto

Quick One Auto is another ideal cannabis strain for beginners . Just like Easy Bud Auto, novice growers can stand back and allow this strain to move automatically into the flowering period independently. Quick One Auto also goes from seed to harvest in eight to nine weeks. It contains approximately 13% THC and produces up to 12 ounces per square meter indoors.

3. Blackberry

Blackberry is a high potency (23% THC) marijuana strain that is neither indica-dominant nor sativa-dominant. Instead, it is a perfectly balanced hybrid that offers cannabis consumers the best of both worlds.

Novice growers will love this strain, too, as it is easy to grow and provides high yields indoors. It is resistant to mildew and common mold and thrives in a warm and dry environment. Blackberry’s indoor flowering period is between 8-9 weeks, and it typically yields around 18 ounces per square meter.

4. Blue Cheese

Blue Cheese is a pungent indica-dominant marijuana strain that novice growers should find easy to cultivate. It contains up to 20% THC and is a great strain for beginners as it is naturally resistant to mold and handles cooler temperatures well. The Blue Cheese strain has an average indoor flowering time of between 8-9 weeks and provides growers with relatively high yields of 18 ounces per square meter.

5. LSD

LSD is a potent (up to 24% THC), slightly indica-dominant marijuana strain. This cannabis plant is a great indoor option for novice growers. However, it’s only suitable for experienced cannabis users to consume.

Best Weed for Beginners

In reality, there’s no single answer to the question, “What is the best strain for beginner growers ?” Whether you are looking for a sativa or indica for beginners, the best strain is the one that fully addresses your needs.

If you intend to grow cannabis plants with dense buds for recreational use, then you may want a sativa-dominant marijuana strain with uplifting and energizing effects. However, if you are a medicinal cannabis consumer looking to alleviate the symptoms of your condition, growing cannabis plants with a high CBD content may be best for you.

Useful tricks and tips. …

Another essential factor to consider is whether you will be growing indoors or outdoors. Depending on the marijuana strain, indoor cultivation can limit the number of cannabis plants that you can grow in a single harvest. Therefore, if you consume a lot of cannabis, why not try cultivating one of the strains in this article that provides growers with high yields.

If you are looking specifically for a marijuana strain that thrives indoors or outdoors, then check out the ones we listed above. As an added bonus, we’ve included five more of our favorite top-shelf cannabis strains below that are great for starting points for novice growers. So, without further ado, here are, in our opinion, five of the easiest marijuana strains to cultivate.

1 – Blue Dream (Sativa)

At one time, Blue Dream was the most popular strain in the world. Even today, this sativa-dominant (60%) strain is desired. This is primarily because of its ability to provide users with a quick ‘pick me up’ during the day.

It is a cross of Super Silver Haze and a Blueberry indica. With a THC content of up to 24%, Blue Dream is exceptionally potent. However, its 2% CBD content means it offers several potential medical benefits.

There are many reasons why Blue Dream is such an excellent option for novice growers. One is its high resistance to root rot and powdery mildew. These are two of the most common issues found in any grow room and can destroy a crop if left untreated.

It will grow into a tall plant and is extremely easy to grow indoors. If you elect to grow Blue Dream outside, it is a slightly tougher task. This strain has a sensitivity to extreme climate changes. When outdoors, it is also susceptible to an infestation of red spider mites, because it offers a delightfully sweet scent.

Indoor growers could benefit from an average yield of approximately 21 ounces per square meter. The flowering period is 9-10 weeks. If you grow Blue Dream outside, it will yield up to 21 ounces per plant and is ready for harvest in October.

2 – Dutch Treat (Indica)

This classic marijuana strain comes from Amsterdam. It is an indica-dominant (80%) hybrid that offers a sweet taste. Its THC content is between 18% and 25%. When you first use it, you will feel as if you are soaring through the air. The cerebral high hits you quickly and provides you with a sense of euphoria.

Dutch Treat is a strain that prefers being grown indoors. It responds well to a hydroponics system, although a good soil environment should ensure that it thrives. Even amateur growers find Dutch Treat easy to cultivate. You are better off only trying to grow it outdoors if you live in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) because the region’s climate is ideal.

You may have read a few guides that suggest Dutch Treat offers high yields, but the reality is different. If you grow indoors, it will take 8-9 weeks for the strain to flower. However, its average return of 12 ounces per square meter planted is well below the rest of this list. Should you decide to grow outdoors, the yield is just eight ounces per plant on average. Dutch Treat is usually ready for harvest in late September.

3 – Green Crack (Sativa)

This is another outstanding Californian strain that was initially called Green Kush. However, Snoop Dogg had a taste. He famously declared that it provided an uplifting high akin to what you might get from crack. Consequently, he renamed this sativa-dominant (75%) strain. As well as benefiting from high energy once consumed, Green Crack’s sweet citrus aroma is heavenly.

Green Crack maintains the upbeat effects associated with sativas. However, its indica genetics ensure it offers a high yield of 18 ounces per square meter indoors. It also has a rapid flowering time of 7-9 weeks.

If you grow it outdoors, the return is 20 ounces per plant. It has a harvest date of late September or early October. If you decide to grow Green Crack outdoors, be wary of its capacity to stretch.

It is also essential to keep humidity in your grow room on the low side of recommendations. This plant is sensitive to powdery mildew. If you cultivate it outside, bear in mind that Green Crack thrives in a Mediterranean climate.

One possible issue with Green Crack is availability. It is only available in clone form, which means growers on the West Coast may find it hard to track it down. Its THC content ranges from moderate at 13% to high at 21%. The euphoric head high you’ll feel after using Green Crack will make all your hard work worth it!

4 – GG4 (A Hybrid Cannabis Strain)

Also known as Gorilla Glue #4, this 50/50 hybrid has an extremely high THC content of at least 25%. It provides you with an exceedingly powerful and euphoric high along with a strong aroma.

GG4 is a cross of Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel. The strain has won numerous Cannabis Cup awards. Now, it is possible to grow it at home in states where cultivation is legal.

The bushy pattern of GG4 means you can grow it in a tiny room. This is especially the case if you use the Screen of Green (SCROG) technique. It is relatively easy to grow because it requires fewer nutrients than most strains. In general, it is best to cultivate Gorilla Glue #4 indoors. Even so, GG4 can thrive in a warm climate when growing outdoors.

For indoor growers, GG4 will provide up to 18 ounces per square meter, and its flowering time is 8-9 weeks. If you grow outdoors, it produces up to 21 ounces per plant with a harvest date of mid-October. GG4 also offers high resin production, making it a clear favorite for users looking to investigate the effects of concentrate. When it’s time for harvest, bring an extra pair of scissors because wet trimming clogs up the blades quickly.

5 – Cinex (Sativa)

Cinex is a slightly sativa-dominant (60%) strain with a THC content of between 22% and 25%. It is a cross of Vortex and Cinderella 99. It has a reputation for providing users with a burst of energy that instantly makes them feel more productive and creative. Cinex’s parents ensure it is an easy to grow strain.

For example, Cinderella 99 plants are bushy with high yields and a potent THC level. For novice growers, the Cinderella 99 traits of Cinex mean you can grow it in a small grow room using the SCROG method. As a bonus, it possesses a high resistance to mildew and mold. Therefore, amateurs will get away with a few mistakes.

You will find that Cinex regularly grows in the PNW region. This fact means it is weather resistant and capable of thriving in a cool climate. It is even easy to trim!

If you grow Cinex indoors, it has a flowering time of 7-9 weeks. It yields around 19 ounces per square meter. If you cultivate it outdoors, it should generate an average of 16 ounces of bud per plant. Cinex is typically ready to harvest by the beginning of October.

Final Thoughts on the Right Marijuana for Novices to Grow

If you love weed, there are few things more satisfying than growing your own. There are a host of advanced strains that will pose a challenge to even the most experienced and talented growers. If you fall into the category of ‘novice,’ we recommend trying to grow one of the five strains mentioned above.

Even top-shelf buds are easy to develop when you find the right strain.

Remember, marijuana strains vary regarding color, potency, and flavor. Even when you find the right strain, there are a host of external factors to consider. Examples include flowering time, and whether the plants grow best inside or outside. You must also consider the temperature of your grow room, the amount of nutrients you have to provide, and the humidity of the environment.

When choosing a marijuana strain to grow, choose ones capable of handling cold weather, pest infestations, disease, and mold. Beginners should also look towards autoflowering strains because they can go from seed to harvest in just two months.
