best marijuana strains to grow

Bruce Banner is a great old-school strain that flowers quickly and packs a hefty, euphoric punch.

New growers searching for the best strains to grow indoors need to look no further. Check out the top weed strains to grow inside.

A newer favorite of ours, Wedding Crasher has a classy lineage: Wedding Cake and Purple Punch. This hybrid leans toward the indica side with Purple Punch in its roots and has short, dense buds with hints of purple.

Wedding Crasher

With thousands of strains to choose from, here are six of our favorites that are great to grow indoors.

A lot of common, classic strains come in autoflower and feminized varieties.

Gelato descendant Vanilla Frosting is a unique, newer strain with a creamy vanilla flavor and a gassy finish.

Blue Dream

If you love a certain strain that takes 11 weeks to flower, go for it, but whichever strain you choose, check the breeder or seed bank’s information on it to get a sense of how it’ll grow.

Pests also love Banana, so be sure to keep it in a cool, dry climate.

Its indica-dominant genetics means it usually grows short and stout, but it still gets solid yields and has dense buds. You’ll want to be sure to prune and top Wedding Cake to get rid of some of its foliage, for fear of it developing mold. This frosty strain is covered in trichomes and will be a sticky one in your garden, but its sweet citrusy smells with hints of vanilla make it a pleasure to grow.

Its sturdiness gives it a large margin of error when growing, in case you forget to water or give it nutrients, or give it too many nutrients for that matter. Blue Dream grows well in many different climates, both indoors and outdoors and can handle cold nights.

And to make things even easier, you may want to check out feminized or autoflower versions of them—feminized seeds don’t need to be sexed out to identify and get rid of pesky male plants; with autoflowers, you don’t have to worry about light changing, and you can harvest plants 2-3 months after seeds sprout.

Super Lemon Haze

Another relatively new strain, GMO Cookies will smell like nothing you’ve ever grown before—its nickname is “Garlic Cookies.” Crossing two classic strains, GSC and Chemdog, GMO has dense, sticky, light green buds with orange hairs and is a high yielder. Its trichome levels make it a good one for pressing your own hash.

So here are five strains that are easy to grow for beginners: they grow strong, yield high, can grow in many different climates, and have a forgiving margin of error.

Wedding Cake

Growing weed is pretty easy, but some strains can be trickier to grow than others. Some are delicate and need a lot of attention or are prone to disease or mold, while others are sturdy and can handle missing a watering for a day or two. Also, certain strains have adapted to specific climates, so it might not make sense to grow one suited to warm weather if you live in a cold place.

Tried-and-true, Blue Dream is a classic and one of the most popular strains, for both consumers and growers. This cross of Blueberry and Haze originated in Northern California and is a dream to grow—it usually grows big and strong and has high yields of buds, likely a result of its sativa-dominant genetics. Be sure to scrog it to maximize yields.
