Cannabis seeds for beginners

Easy to grow weed seeds are suitable for first-time marijuana growers. Most cannabis strains have specific requirements for a successful harvest, such as lighting, nutrients, temperature, and humidity. Some might need training and topping, which is a new language for beginner growers.

What Are Marijuana Seeds for Beginners?

Lemon OG Kush is a Hybrid marijuana strain that is 60% Indica and 40% Sativa. This potent strain has the highest THC concentration ranging from 16 to 24%, and negligible CBD levels. Users love the complex flavor profile of Lemon OG Kush, which is a mixture of skunk, diesel, and lemon with notes of pine. You can take it when you want to relax as its high induces relaxation perfect for relieving stress. If you are suffering from a lack of appetite, this strain will have you make looking for food at every corner of the house.

Granddaddy Purple Feminized Seeds

Green Crack feminized seeds are the best weed seeds for beginners as they are easy to grow and thrive in warm Mediterranean climates. They excel in an indoor or outdoor environment. Green Crack is Sativa dominant (35% Indica/ 65% Sativa) and a blend of Skunk #1 and Afghani Landrace.

Once you’ve made a decision on where you want to grow, you will have narrowed down your choice of seeds somewhat. Certain strains are better suited to outdoor growing – these are usually the more traditional, landrace varieties from the Middle East, Africa, and the Himalayas – whilst more modern hybrids have usually been developed for indoor growing. That’s not to say you can’t switch them around, but it’s a good rule of thumb, which you need when you’re just starting out. Once again, you can always experiment later.

So you’re new to growing cannabis? If you’re looking for your first strain, the choice can be overwhelming. Back in the day (or so I’m told) you had essentially two options – Skunk, or Northern Lights – but these days, things have moved on somewhat. There are a mind-blowing number of strains available, and many potential pitfalls that you, as a novice, are likely to run into. But with the right advice you should be able to avoid most if not all of them. Just remember, your first attempt will not be perfect. So don’t panic if and when something goes wrong.

This one is a little trickier, and depends on your circumstances to some extent. The accepted wisdom is that indicas are a safer bet for novice growers, due in large part to their shorter flowering time. When you’re new to the game, it can already seem like it takes forever to grow, harvest, dry, and cure your buds to a point where they’re ready to be consumed, so adding on the extra time needed for a sativa to flower is not generally considered a good idea. If nothing else, more time spent growing means more time for things to go wrong.

A third option is to go for autoflowering seeds. These are a relatively new phenomenon, and can be a great option for a novice grower as they combine pretty much everything you’re looking for in a plant – they’re usually fairly cheap, feminised, and indica dominant, and are extremely forgiving. They’ll grow pretty much anywhere, and quickly.

Quality Autoflowering Strains

The downside is that the plants they produce will be smaller, and will therefore yield far less bud. Again, this does come down to personal preference. My advice would be that if you’re a recreational user experimenting with growing your own supply, autoflowers are a great place to start. But if you’re a medical user, or just need a large yield, they’re probably not for you.

Armed with this information, you should now be able to make an informed decision about which seeds are right for you. But remember, this is just a guide, and will by no means guarantee success. You might also choose to ignore me, which is entirely up to you, especially if you have money to burn and a soft spot for American hybrids that cost a fortune and are only available as regulars.

If you’ve taken on board what I said in point number 1, and are now scouring the web for the cheapest strains available, you’re going to need to slow down. It’s not quite as simple as that.

Price

So keep it cheap, for now. Get a few practice runs under your belt and you’ll be moving on to the high grade in no time.

The last thing you want is to not notice a male plant in your grow, and to find after weeks (if not months) of hard work, that he has ruined everything for you.

Cannabis seeds for beginners

Northern Lights is a classic indica strain that is hugely popular in the marijuana world. Obtaining feminized seeds is no challenge either. This is particularly the case along the West Coast and in Colorado, as this strain is widely available.

One downside is that its yields are particularly modest. Indoor Easy Bud growers are looking at up to 11 ounces per square meter. However, outdoor growers will have to make do with just 2-6 ounces per plant.

Specialized Qualities: Autoflowering, Quick Flowering Period, etc.

Did you know that some marijuana strains are more straightforward to grow than others? There are a few factors in particular that make some cannabis strains simpler to cultivate than others.

The good news for beginners is that this plant is hardy and allows for some rookie mistakes. For example, Blue Dream is a heavy feeder and is capable of absorbing high levels of nitrogen without burning.

4. Easy Bud (Hybrid):

As cannabis becomes legal in an increasing number of states, interest in cultivating it has also grown. As cannabis consumers know, regular trips to the dispensary can start to become very expensive.
