Growing cannabis in your home is legal in an increasing number of states and provinces throughout the United States and Canada. To make starting a home garden easy, growers can start with feminized seeds.
There are numerous advantages for growers who start their garden using feminized seeds. By removing the guesswork of germinating regular seeds, feminized seeds streamline the growing process, saving space and time.
That efficiency is key for medical cannabis patients and hobby growers. Since most cannabis regulations limit plant counts, growers cultivating a small crop of cannabis for personal use want to ensure they’re getting the most out of their grow.
Benefits of feminized seeds
- Feminized seeds develop female plants. This prevents pollination of male plants.
- Every plant will grow smokable cannabis
- Optimum utilization of the available space
- Feminized seeds are almost 100% free of hermaphrodites.
- Higher weed production than autoflowers
- The quality of the taste and the effect is generally better than with autoflowers
- Plants from feminized seeds produce fewer leaves than autoflowers
- In contrast to autoflowers, non-autoflowers (female plants) can be pruned
Gorilla Glue was created accidentally by two breeders—a mistake that resulted in one of the most impressive strains out there. The product of parent strains Chem’s Sister and Chocolate Diesel is an indica-dominant variety with a powerful personality. She offers potent hits fuelled by THC quantities of over 25%. The high is extremely stoning and relaxes the body. The flowers offer pleasant tastes and scents of lemon, wood, pine, and sweetness. Gorilla Glue also contains a small percentage of CBD, which contributes to the relaxing effects.
Gorilla Glue grows to tall heights both indoors and out. This strain has a flowering time of 9–10 weeks, with outdoor plants ready for harvest at the end of September.
Girl Scout Cookies is a high-performing indica-dominant strain that offers significant levels of THC around 23%. This load leads to a high that comes on very fast with effects that last long. The stoning and hazy indica high will induce red eyes, massive appetite, and quality sleep. Girl Scout Cookies gets her name from her sweet, earthy, and dessert-like aromas and tastes. The strain was produced via the pairing of parent strains Durban Poison and OG Kush.
Girl Scout Cookies grows to a height of 85–105cm indoors and offers a yield of up to 500g/m². When cultivated outdoors, this plant can reach a height of up to 190cm, and a single specimen can put out a yield of up to 475g. Outdoor plants will be ready for the axe during October.
Even if you are new to smoking, chances are you’ve heard the name OG Kush. This legendary strain stems from California, the breeding ground of many stellar genetics. She was sired via the merging of parent strains Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush. This ambitious breeding project created a high-THC strain loaded with flavours of contrasting sweetness and sourness.
OG Kush offers an impressive indoor yield of up to 500–600g/m² and high yields when grown outdoors too. All the same, she reaches moderate heights and is pretty easy to manage in various grow environments. After a flowering time of 8 weeks, outdoor plants are ready for harvest.
This lady is another well-known name within the cannabis world, earning her title due to her compact buds that are frosted over with dense layers of resin-producing trichomes. White Widow has been around since the ‘90s and is believed to have been brought into being by breeding a pure Brazilian landrace sativa with an Indian indica. White Widow offers a potent high, thanks in part to her high levels of THC. Her medium level of CBD contributes to a relaxing and calming effect.
Indoors, White Widow plants grow to a height of 60–100cm and are capable of churning out 400g/m². Outdoors, this plant reaches a height of up to 200cm, offering a medium yield. White Widow has a flowering time of 9 weeks.
Northern Lights ticks all the boxes in terms of potency, good yield, and short flowering time. This strain is an indica-dominant variety that stimulates the taste buds with pungent aromas and fruity flavours on a backdrop of citrus and pine. Her high THC level provides a long-lasting and stoning high that is great for unwinding at the end of a busy day.
Northern Lights can achieve a height of 1.2m indoors, delivering a yield of up to 500g/m² after a flowering time of 7 weeks. Outdoor plants can surge to heights of 2.5m and produce high yields, which will be ready for raking in at the end of September.
Amnesia Haze is known to be quite a tricky strain to grow, yet the reward is massive. She offers a potent and dizzying sativa high that has a psychedelic touch to it, along with a medium level of CBD that adds a potentially therapeutic aspect. The high is incredibly energising and euphoric, and is a good choice when needing additional focus throughout the day.
One of Amsterdam’s most prevalent and popular strains. It’s a high-yield strain that is relatively easy to grow indoors, making it a great choice for recreational growers and medical cannabis growers alike. Those living in northern latitudes would probably struggle to get Power Flower to thrive, but growers in warmer climates will find it reasonably easy to get a 65 to 85 gram yield from their plants. It has a delightfully citrusy taste and provides a mellow high.
Critical has every single one of the qualities that you’re looking for in a marijuana plant. Its high yield, easy maintenance and major potency make it the ultimate triple threat, and we think you’ll love the relaxed, sublime high you get the first time you smoke it. Critical will produce an average of 65 to 75 grams per one-metre plant, and the flowering time only takes about seven weeks. If you’re looking to grow fast and furious, Critical is the plant for you.
Green Crack got big in 2012-2013, everyone was going crazy for it. This Afghani/Skunk cross is named for it’s electric-stimulating effects. One of the more mold-resistant hybrid strains available. Green Crack does great both indoors and outdoors(grows huge). This high-yield strain has a very quick 55 day flowering period. High THC cash-cropper cannabis seeds.
The original cash cropper, Big Bud is a multi-award winning strain created from Afghani, Skunk #1, and Northern lights genetics, preserved to this day by the Sensi Seeds company.
A classic indica dominant strain, Big Bud has a fat bushy growth-structure similar to other dank indica strains. Grows both indoors and outdoors athough outdoor growers should be careful of bud mold (Botrytis) close to harvest. Big Bud likes heat and dry weather.
Big Bud plants are some of the most high yielding plants to grow indoors and outdoors, which is what exactly they’re famous for. Huge buds that gain too much weight to hold themselves up. Subtle, sweet and hashy flavors. Drowsiness, red eyes, munchies are common of this herb’s mellow stone. Big Bud’s effects are the typical couch-lock indica. A good yield-booster for breeding hybrids with. Grand Daddy Purp is a prime example of using Big Bud to pump up the normally low yields of a purple strain.
Blue Dream became famous across America once West Coast growers saw just how big and how productive this strain gets. A sativa hybrid cross between Blueberry and Haze, Blue Dream plants can grow into giant trees that make fruity high-grade weed.
A very strong, fast growing plant. The bud formation is impressive for a plant of this type, while other tall-growing sativas would not fill in so thick.
Yields of over 10 pounds per plant outdoors as a big tree, Blue Dream can also be flowered early to stay as more managable, 6 foot tall plants for indoors. The tastes and aroma of Blue Dream is smooth and sweet, very light on the lungs and straight to the dome. Effects are balanced sativa-like speedy high with indica body kick. Easy to grow and easy to get rid of, Blue Dream ranks in as one of the all-time best high yield strains for growing outdoors and indoors.
