Ultimate Cannabis Strains That Will Thrive in Cold Climate

Cannabis growers who grow marijuana seeds in cold weather can not achieve good results with regular outdoor seeds. Many growers have to contend with temperate climates, where heavy rain, strong winds, and cooler temperatures are common. Fortunately, there are cannabis strains that can be grown in such conditions.

  • The most important thing to consider in cold crops is to select seeds with high performance
  • It is also important that seeds are pests and fungi resistant that usually occur at low temperatures.
  • It is important to be ultra fast, seeds with short flowering periods.
  • We recommend  autofower cannabis varieties; strains that are listed can be flowered anytime of the year provided temperature stays above 10°C.

Cannabis Strains ideal for cold climates

AUTO Psychedelic


Psychedelic is a disease-resistant plant that does well in most growing conditions. The buds form in curved triangles, yielding approximately 600 grams per square meter. Flowering time is approximately 8-9 weeks. This marijuana strain is popular for delivering a vivid and psychedelic experience with a powerful body buzz and cerebral high. The THC content has been measured up to 24% with a CBD of 1.3%. The Auto Psychedelic grows in to beautifully small and compact plants that, apart from being resistant to mould and diseases, allow people of any level to obtain many high quality crops of big buds brimming with resin in a remarkably short time.

AUTO Nothern Lights Strain


Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds, fast flowering, and resilience during growth. A descendant of indigenous Afghani and Thai landrace strains, Northern Lights has given rise to famous hybrids like Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Northern Lights’ psychoactive effects settle in firmly throughout the body, relaxing muscles and pacifying the mind in dreamyeuphoria. Comfortable laziness allows patients to relieve pain and sleeplessness, while its mellow contentment roots out depression and stress. Growing to a height of 90-120 cm, it is quite a large plant for an Autoflowering strain, but the consequence of this are great yields. Outdoors with experienced growers some plants have produced up to 200 grams of dried buds in 70 days from germination. Very recommended variety!

AUTO Critical Strain


Critical is a slightly Indica-dominant THC-rich strain, a combination of Bigger Bud x Skunk . With a large “critical ” production, branches tend to snap from the weight of these dense buds. Flowering time is approximately 7-8 weeks. However, due to the large production of flowering, this strain is susceptible to mold which can be reduced by growing indoors to reduce humidity. THC levels of this strain may reach up to 26%. Generally used for therapeutic purposes and so we recommend her for those seeking a sleep-inducing and pain-relieving strain.

AUTO Somango Strain


Somango is a 75% indica strain bred by crossing Jack Herer, Super Skunk, and Big Skunk Korean. Formerly known as Soma #5, Somango was later renamed after its fruity mango aroma. Despite its heavy indica genetics, Somango’s effects are uplifting and cerebrally-focused. Creative minds will enjoy the clear-headed and functional euphoria brought about by Somango, allowing focus and productivity. Somango is a good choice for shifting mental attitude and is a good companion to all of your favorite creative undertakings.

AUTO White Widow Strain


Among the most famous strains worldwide is White Widow, a balanced hybrid. A cross between a Brazilian sativa landrace and a resin-heavy South Indian indica,  White Widow has blessed every Dutch coffee shop menu since its birth in the 1990s. Its buds are white with crystal resin, warning you of the potent effects to come. A powerful burst of euphoria and energy breaks through immediately, stimulating both conversation and creativity. White Widow’s genetics have given rise to many other legends like White Russian, White Rhino, and Blue Widow.

AUTO Jack Herer Strain


Jack Herer is a sativa-dominant cannabis strain that has gained as much renown as its namesake, the marijuana activist and author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes. Combining a Haze hybrid with a Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk cross was created Jack Herer hoping to capture both the cerebral elevation associated with sativas and the heavy resin production of indicas. Its rich genetic background gives rise to several different variations of Jack Herer, each phenotype bearing its own unique features and effects. However, consumers typically describe this 55% sativa hybrid a sblissful, clear-headed, and creative.

Auto Mazar Extra


Auto Mazar Extra is one of our biggest and most productive Autoflowering strains, it is robust and easy to cultivate. Ruderalis genes were crossed and recrossed to ensure a stable Autofeminised version of the original variety. Traditionally Mazar is a 100% Indica strain with heavy side branching and is capable of reaching around 4 meters in height or even more if grown outdoors. Auto Mazar Extra plants will reach around 160 cm in height and can give massive yields. More experienced growers will be able to grow up to 250 grams of dry buds from those little Indica. This is a must for all Indica lovers, who want a resistant and easy to cultivate Autoflowering strain.
