Growing cannabis can be an arduous process. But what if you’re impatient or short on time? Is there a way to speed up the growing process?
Historically, black market growers would seek out or hybridize strains to harness attributes that catered to their surreptitious needs. These plants would usually be short and stalky with larger-than-average yields, and in some instances they would be autoflowering (such as a ruderalis hybrid). They were designed to be fast-flowering for both a quick turnover and so they could be easily relocated from time to time.
These selections from autoflowering, feminized and CBD plants are our most popular fast growing strains. They are easy to grow, produce good yields and deliver the goods all the way. Check them out and get seeds below!
Feminized fast growing strains
Honey Cream lives up to its name. After flowering starts, the plant will be ready to harvest in about 6-7 weeks. Indoors, the plant can produce about 500 g per square meter. It produces buds with intense, sweet and sugary caramel aroma. Honey Cream is an indica, and produces a satisfying heavy stone.
Critical Kush from Barney’s Farm is a mostly indica strain that blends together two famed cannabis staples, Critical Mass and OG Kush. Aromatic notes of earthiness and spice usher in a calming sensation that relaxes the mind and body. Critical Kush pairs a staggeringly high THC content with a moderate dose of CBD, making this strain a perfect nighttime medication for pain, stress, insomnia, and muscle spasms. Growers cultivating this strain indoors will wait 50 to 60 days for Critical Kush to complete its flowering cycle.
Quick One is one of the fastest auto-growing strains on the planet. The plant is based on the original auto flowering strain – Lowryder. This strain was created from a cross between William’s Wonder x Northern Lights x Ruderalis. These plants are usually ready for harvest in 8 weeks from germination. The plants also reach between 50 and 60 cm and can yield up to 150g per plant.
This strain comes by its name easily. Easy Bud is very similar to the autoflowering White Dwarf. A cross between Ruderalis x Indica strains allows this plant to literally be grown anywhere. This strain also produces flowers in just 8-9 weeks after germination. The plants grow to an average height of 50 to 60 cm. This also makes them a great indoor grow selection.
CBD fast growing strains
Fast Eddy Automatic is a rapid growing cross between Cheese x Juanita la Lagrimosa x Ruderalis and produces a harvest in just 8-9 weeks after germination. Fast Eddy can grow to heights between 60-100cm high when grown indoors. Outside it can grow to up to 120cm. The plant can also produce yields of up to 450g per square meter in optimal grow conditions. The variety has a pungent, citrusy aroma. It can also produce a clear and comfortable buzz when smoked. The light and functional high it produces is great for use during the day – and of course, it is an excellent source of CBD.
This autoflowering strain was bred to offer users a clear, functional and focusing high. Stress Killer combines the genetics of Lemon Haze x Juanita Lagrimosa x Ruderalis.

This is an extremely versatile cannabis strain dominated by the sativa side of its genetics.
