For most people, driving over to the nearest dispensary to purchase marijuana is all the effort they’re willing to put in for their cannabis. But others have more passion and interest in the hobby, and want to grow their own. Unfortunately, not everyone is a gifted grower and won’t be able to magically turn their plants into an amazing product. But luckily there are some strains that are easier to handle than others.
Here are the 10 easiest strains of marijuana to grow in your home.
10. Blue Dream
As one of the most popular strains of marijuana in the United States, there will be plenty of seeds available to grow Blue Dream. It’s also fairly resistant to powdery mildew and root rot, two of the biggest problems people experience when growing cannabis.
9. Northern Lights
Another very popular strain, Northern Lights is also known to be one of the easiest to grow. The plants stay short and are known to easily recover from any issues or problems while growing, meaning you don’t have to be an expert to ensure they survive. They also tend to not smell as much as other strains, which can be helpful for an umber of reasons.
There are two major benefits to growing the Papaya strain. One is that it grows quickly, and you’ll be able to use it in less than three months after germination. Another is that it’s able to withstand stressful conditions. So if you’re not the most well-stocked grower, this could be a good strain for you.
7. Blue Cheese
Let’s face it: most of us are terrible at handling plants. Luckily the Blue Cheese strain can withstand most of your incompetence. It can withstand overwatering, underwatering, mold, stress and many other mistakes made by amateur growers.
6. Auto Lemon OG Haze
If you’re growing marijuana for the first time, you probably won’t necessarily be as patient as an experienced grower. So picking a quick growing strain may be best. Auto Lemon OG Haze will be ready for harvest about two months after you plant the seeds. That may sound like a lot, but that’s a pretty quick turnaround.
5. Blue AutoMazar
Blue AutoMazar is also a quick growing strain, although you’ll have to wait a little less than three months for this one. It’s also a very high yielding strain, which means you’ll get more bang for your buck. It also has a more cheesy smell than the traditional skunky marijuana aroma, which means you may be able to hide it a little better than other strains.
4. Green Crack
Sativa strains are usually difficult to grow because they take a long time to flower and they grow pretty long vertically. But Green Crack’s genetic components allow it to stand firm and also has a quicker flowering time than other sativa strains, although it is hard to find outside of the West Coast.
3. Gorilla Glue #4
Gorilla Glue #4 is renowned for its great genetics. It grows in a bushy pattern, which makes it great for small spaces. And it’s known to deliver a great product without growers needing to worry too much about nutrient needs.
2. Dutch Treat
If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, you’ll easily find seeds for the Dutch Treat strain. Like Gorilla Glue #4, this plant offers a high-yield, high-quality product without taking too much resources.
Cinex combines a lot of the qualities we mentioned in previous strains. It’s ideal for growing in small spaces, it’s resistant to mold and mildew and it is a high-yielding strain. It’s also known to have a very high THC content of around 22 percent, which is particularly potent for a home grow.
