Cannabis is easy to grow when you know how to do it, but it might seem a little daunting if you’re a beginner and looking to wet your beak to produce great weed. However, have no fear because, as always, your good buds at Seedsman have you covered.
Check our blogs for loads of great articles and tips on how to get started with your own grow – you’ll find information on everything from types of grow and setups to growing medium, equipment and, of course, the best seeds for the job.
If you’re looking to keep it simple when growing cannabis – whether you’re a newbie or a veteran – you’ll be interested to know that we specialise in relatively low-maintenance strains. Check out any of our superb autoflowering strains for a quick and easy plant that flips from the vegetative stage to the flowering stage without the meticulous attention to lighting that photoperiod strains require.
It doesn’t get a whole lot simpler than autos, but if you’re looking for something with a higher yield and a bit more pizazz, take a look at our top 5 easy strains to grow:
A modern classic with a killer taste profile, Blue Dream has gained notoriety among growers everywhere for its quick, hassle-free growth. For this reason, it’s a winning strain for newcomers and experienced growers alike – after all, who doesn’t want an easy-growing, high-yielding cannabis plant with flavours to die for?
Crossing Blueberry Ice with a U.S. Haze has created a unique new strain that’s mostly-sativa in nature and offers excellent yields whether you grow indoors or outdoors. Indoor yields are around an impressive 500 gr/m2, whereas outdoor growers can look forward to between 700-850 gr/plant – and while that’s not to be sniffed at, the seductive lemon, berry and haze aromas most certainly are!
Blue Dreamhttps://www.seedsman.com/blue-dream-feminised-seeds presents no real difficulties when growing and responds well whether planted indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse. Experienced cultivators will know how to get the best out of her, but expertise is not necessary to produce great results from this beautiful, robust strain.
Still undecided? Blue Dream’s incredible terpene profile includes high amounts of alpha-pinene, a mono-terpene with numerous medicinal and therapeutic benefits. It helps treat anxiety, depression, nausea, stress, inflammation, etc. The high THC content of around 20% results in a long-lasting and powerful uplifting effect, one that’s sure to leave you feeling happy and relaxed.
Northern Lights Auto
The famous Northern Lights strain is at the genetic heart of many of today’s hybrid cannabis strains, and for good reason. If you’ve ever had a grow threatened by pests or pathogens, you might consider picking up some Northern Lights Auto Seeds. Among its many strengths, Northern Lights offers excellent resistance to fungus, pathogens and pests, making it a smart choice for a safe and trouble-free grow. Throw in autoflowering properties, and you’ve got a cannabis strain which is as good as bulletproof – the hybrid of Northern Lights with a Ruderalis gave birth to a strain with even greater resilience than the Northern Lights strains of the past.
It does well in all environments but yields best indoors, where 500 gr/m2 is par for the course. Cultivation is straightforward, and this strain benefits from moderate levels of slow-release fertiliser to encourage health and optimise growth.
As well as being almost effortless to grow, Northern Lights Auto offers up a whopping 23% THC content – awe-inspiring for an auto. Look forward to succulent flavours of fruits with a sweet n sour plum jam vibe to the fore, giving way to the familiar powerful and relaxing body effect you’d expect from an indica-dominant strain.
Green Crack Auto
Here’s a cannabis strain that ticks a lot of boxes. Easy to grow? Check. High THC content? Check. Amazing flavours? Check. High yields? Check. Green Crack Auto from Seedsman has more checks than a chef’s trousers!
Crossing the original Green Crack Strain with a Ruderalis has given us a true champ – it’s fast-growing and trouble-free, making it a piece of cake for even novices to grow. There’s just one tip for ensuring a high yield, and that’s to ensure you’re generous with the nutrients during the flowering stage – doing so will see you maximise those yields to around 500-650 gr/m2, and you’ll get some fat, juicy buds that sparkle with resin as a thank-you.
Green Crack Auto offers discretion among its many plus points. Plants will seldom exceed 90cm, making them ideal for stealthy projects, and those yields look even more impressive when you consider the small stature of the fully-grown plant.
Fans of fruity flavours will love the juicy mango flavour of this strain, and the fruity floral notes will delight the taste buds before you enjoy the euphoric, energetic and uplifting sensations that make Green Crack Auto an excellent daytime choice.
Green Crack Auto grows in around 9-10 weeks and delivers on all fronts.
Purple Ghost Candy
A connoisseur quality cannabis plant that even beginners can grow? Does that even exist? Yes, and it’s one of our finest strains, without exception.
We don’t like to toot our horn, but sometimes you have to. Seedsman’s Purple Ghost Candy is a bit of a gamechanger. It’s a stunning-looking plant that grows relatively high, offers high yields, high THC (20%), and high amounts of resin to get you extremely……relaxed. It’s a mostly-sativa hybrid of Ghost OG and Candyland Purple, one of the best Purples around – quality is not in question.
The connoisseur element of Purple Ghost Candy is evident in the taste. You’ll experience a kaleidoscope of amazing, punchy flavours – it’s spicy and earthy, yet at the same time lemon fruity. It all makes for a joyous experience that culminates in an incredibly balanced effect that is powerful and relaxing but somehow wonderfully stimulating.
Indoor growers can look forward to yields of between 500-600 gr/m2, but this strain is just as happy to grow in outdoor environments – don’t spend too long on the vegetative phase if you’re growing indoors unless you have plenty of headroom, because these plants can stretch! Make sure you provide some support for the lateral branches to accommodate growth, but apart from that, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find how easy it is to grow cannabis of this quality.
Don’t be afraid of the Purple Ghost!
Original Skunk #1
If you want a potent and easy strain to grow, look no further than Original Skunk #1. The lovechild of several hallowed landrace strains, OS1 combines genetic features of Afghani indica and the legendary Acapulco Gold sativa with a Colombian Gold sativa in the mix, boosting the cerebral effects even further.
This strain has serious old-school vibes and got its name from being the first stabilised hybrid introduced to the Dutch growing scene.
Due to its extraordinary vigour, this robust and reliable plant has become the breeding stock for almost all Skunks available to this day, making it an assured pick for hassle-free grow that doesn’t disappoint in terms of easy cultivation, high yields or effects.
Original Skunk #1 is ready in just nine weeks when you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of 500gr/2 from indoor plants or around 45 gr/plant if grown outdoors. Among its many benefits is the ease of manicure after harvesting and drying, so it’s an excellent strain for novices to cut their teeth on, and the low-maintenance growing stage does not translate to an ordinary experience. We think you’ll be suitably impressed by both the intense aroma and the powerful cerebral effect from this highly resinous strain.
