The 8 easiest cannabis seeds to grow

The thought has crossed the mind of most cannabis patients at least once: What if I just grew my own? How hard could it be? And while growing marijuana may be more complicated than you assume, you don’t need a green thumb to grow your own smokeable (or cookable) cannabis flowers — even on the first try. What you do need though, are cannabis seeds.

A growing number of states allow medical marijuana patients — and recreational users — to grow their own cannabis with some limitations. This can be a way to save money on marijuana, and also to ensure you have a ready supply at hand. There doesn’t need to be a pandemic outside for this to be a motivator either.

Why grow your own marijuana?

For many patients, mobility is a real issue, so being able to provide your own supply without having to venture out or rely on caretakers can be a real quality of life improver.

Autoflowering and Feminized Seeds

One shortcut that can really help a marijuana growing beginner is to opt for “auto-flowering” strains, which produce hardy, durable plants that require very little growing expertise and can produce harvestable flowers in as little as two months. You can also opt for feminized cannabis seeds, which are almost certain to be female (and thus, bud-producing), and tend to have higher yields than auto-flowering strains.

Growing your own marijuana is a rewarding experience that can be therapeutic in its own right — and a fun way to pass the time stuck at home. To get yourself started, here are 8 of the best cannabis seeds for beginners.

*The average THC percentage and yield given for each strain is that which is listed by the company. Results, including the effects of each plant, may vary. Read more on the differences between indica and sativa.

Blueberry Autoflower

  • Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Up to 14% THC
  • Flowers in 8 weeks
  • 4-6 ounces yield per 9 ft 2

A former winner of the “Best Indica” award at the High Times “Cannabis Cup,” Blueberry has been a popular strain for decades — and it’s easy to see why. Blueberry is easy to grow and the buds have a fruity, earthy flavor which users say produces a happy and euphoric sensation.

Blueberry produces a good sized yield and should start flowering in a few weeks. It’s a great strain for beginners and you can grow it indoors or outdoors with little effort whatsoever. It is also a very compact plant, so it’s a good option even if you’re living in a small apartment in the city.

Gorilla Glue Feminized Seeds

  • 50% Indica, 50% Sativa hybrid
  • Up to 26% THC
  • Flowers in 8 weeks
  • 16-18 ounces per square meter

This popular and potent strain got its name because of what users describe as a strong high that can leave you stuck to the couch for a while — not that there’s anything wrong with that.

And while that effect may not be for everybody, with levels of THC that can be well over 25%, this indica-dominant hybrid provides a lot of bang for the buck.

That’s part of why it’s an industry favorite and has won a number of international cannabis contests. This feminized version of the strain is easy to grow, even for beginners. You can expect to see flowers in eight to nine weeks, and the company advertises yields of 18 ounces or even more per square meter.

Girl Scout Cookies Autoflower Seeds

  • Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Up to 21% THC
  • Flowers in 8 weeks
  • 4-6 ounces per square meter

Girl Scout Cookies is almost more a pop-culture phenomenon than a simple strain. This heavily-indica hybrid is one of the most popular strains in the world and gets name-dropped in songs quite regularly. That shouldn’t be too surprising — it’s a high-THC, very potent, and pungent strain that many medical patients report is effective for dealing with chronic pain, and it’s also popular with recreational users looking for a dependable “couch lock.”

This autoflower Girl Scout Cookies strain is easy to grow both indoors or outside and is highly resistant to pests and mold. These seeds have an advertised flowering time of about eight weeks and can produce around 4-6 ounces per square meter.

Zkittlez Autoflower Seeds

  • Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Over 20% THC
  • Flowers in 8 weeks
  • 4-6 ounces per square meter

Zkittlez is every bit as sweet a strain as the name suggests. This indica-dominant strain smells of candy and berries and has a loyal fanbase that swears by its strong, enjoyable high.

The strain is also known for producing big — some say even giant — buds that growers will want to photograph and write home about. Expect to harvest around nine weeks after germination, with a yield of around 4-6 ounces per square meter.

Blue Dream Feminized Seeds

  • 20% indica, 80% sativa
  • Up to 21% THC
  • Flowers in 9 weeks
  • 21 ounces yield per square meter

Take the best of Blueberry and Haze strains, cross them, and you’ve got one of the most popular strains of cannabis anywhere. Blue Dream is a high-THC strain with the great taste and aroma of blueberry and produces what growers describe as the strong, vigorous sativa high of haze.

Blue Dream is a tall plant that luckily grows indoors with ease. This autoflower strain of Blue Dream should flower in 9-10 weeks and produce as much as 21 ounces of cannabis per square meter, according to the company.

CBD Kush Autoflower

  • 50% Sativa, 50% Indica
  • Very high CBD, almost no THC
  • Flowers in 8 weeks
  • 4-6 ounces yield per square meter

Not every medical cannabis patient wants a high THC plant. CBD Kush is an autoflower strain that produces high levels of CBD and very little THC, and has a fruity taste and strong, woodsy aroma. With that sort of chemical make-up, it is touted as a calming, relaxing strain that you can use even in the middle of a work day.

These seeds are easy to grow both indoors and outdoors, and should flower within two months. The seeds produce around 4-6 ounces of buds per square meter, according to the company.

White Widow Autoflower

  • 60% Indica, 40% Sativa hybrid
  • Up to 19% THC
  • Flowers in 8 weeks
  • 4-6 ounces per square meter

White Widow was a predominant marijuana strain long before many of today’s popular strains were even born.

It’s been popular since the 1990s and is a potent hybrid with almost equal amounts of Indica and Sativa, which helps it produce well balanced effects that have made it a favorite for multiple generations of cannabis fans. It’s not too strong for everyday use, but also won’t leave the average user feelings disappointed either.

For beginner growers, this autoflower strain is also a piece of cake. It can be grown indoors or outdoors, and produces around 4-6 ounces on a compact frame, in as little as eight weeks.

Super Lemon Haze Feminized

  • Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Up to 22% THC
  • Flowers in 9 weeks
  • 21-25 ounces per square meter

A long-time favorite of the cannabis scene, this award-winning strain produces a sharp, citrusy taste and aroma, and has a high level of THC.

This is a high-yield, easy to grow strain that produces tall plants that stand up well to pests and mold. The producers of this feminized strain of Super Lemon Haze state that it can produce as much as 35 ounces of high-grade cannabis per plant in as little as nine weeks, though even a far lower yield would be considered a successful harvest for most casual home growers.

The effects are described by the company as strong, producing a lively and energetic high.

It’s easier than you think

With so many of us spending more time around the house these days, this is a great time to explore the joys of home marijuana cultivation. While some aspects of large-scale marijuana cultivation can be challenging, growing a few plants at home may actually be a lot easier than you think.

All you need are the right seeds tailor-made for beginners, a little time, patience, and tender love and care, and you’ll have your first crop in no time. And like they say, you never forget your first.

Cannabis in the Stone Age, the origins of breeding

We know that the history of cannabis goes back for millennia, but when and where was it first domesticated? Today we travel back in time to the Stone Age to find out and see how cannabis has been at the side of humanity since the beginning of agriculture itself, something that our ancestors knew how to take advantage of!

20 paintings from the Golden Age of stoner art

Ever since tobacco landed in Europe from America, brought by the Spanish conquistadors, its fusion with cannabis was a logical response to society’s craving for the more recreational side of life, in a world that was escaping the dark Middle Ages to enter the joy and abundance of the modern period. And this was all captured by the painters of the time, with special emphasis on the exponents of the so-called Golden Age of Dutch Baroque painting, of which today we bring you some examples that show that smoking cannabis in a pipe was already fashionable much earlier than you might have imagined.

Cannabis gifts for your stoner friend or partner

Finding a good present to give is not always an easy task, although if the person we want to give a gift to is a cannabis lover, things will be a little easier. Today we want to inspire you and give you some ideas for choosing the ideal gift so you hit the spot the first time.

Salaries in the cannabis industry

Despite the unemployment crisis caused by the Covid pandemic, job opportunities in the cannabis industry have been steadily increasing. With many sectors still struggling to make ends meet economically, the weed industry continues to soar like a rocket, and that is reflected in the salaries earned by its professionals. Do you know how much a cannabis dispensary employee earns per hour? Or what is the annual salary of a director of operations of a commercial greenhouse? And the wages for a trimmer? We will try to answer these questions by looking at the US, the world’s largest cannabis market, so everything that happens there serves as a mirror for what one day, hopefully not too far away, may happen here.

Hot Cannabis Seeds To Grow in 2022

Three cultivation experts fill us in on what they are excited about as we enter the outdoor planting season.

Luckily for us, cannabis was made illegal. After all, if the U.S. government had not decided to criminalize marijuana, starting with a tax for growing it, we wouldn’t have nearly as many different types. When cannabis growers and breeders were forced underground, they used male and female plants to create their own seedstock. The illegal distinction borne by the cannabis plant has led to it being one of the most diverse botanicals on the planet. When the War on Drugs meant Americans could no longer get landrace genetics like Acapulco Gold from Mexico, we looked further toward Amsterdam’s marijuana melting pot. The fusion of American cannabis enthusiasts and High Times legends like Sam the Skunkman, Ed Rosenthal, and Steve Hager with Dutch seed companies blessed the world with delicacies like Super Lemon Haze and provided the platform to promote them. Today, the worldwide cannabis seed market is a thriving industry.

Seed germination for outdoor growing starts in spring. Seeds require 10-15 days longer than clones, so the end of April is an excellent time to pop them to get the 2022 outdoor harvest outside by Mother’s Day. We checked in with three ganja growing all-stars to see what cannabis combinations they’re excited about this year.

David Downs
Senior Content Manager, Leafly

What seeds are you excited about for this planting season?
For this planting season, I’m super-juiced to re-run Humboldt Seed Co’s Squirt (feminized) for year three. I can smoke that super-optimized modern Tangie cross all day, every day, and it makes a great salad with another sativa during the day or some gas at night.

I’m also hyped to bring back HumSeedCo’s Hella Jelly (fems) for year two as a super-agronimized modern sativa that finishes early and has mad cherry and cotton candy taste and zippy daytime effects.

I’m stoked to run Archive Seeds Dosi-Tree outside for the first time for that Dosi gas plus Lemon Tree’s size and syrupy lemon smell. Yum! Last year it was In-House Genetics’ Slurricane IX—that killed!

And lastly, I’m pumped to run Terp Hogz Geneticz Z3 for the first time this year! I think I’ll always want some Zkittlez in the garden, and Z3 is a way to get at the root of some optimized Z terps, as opposed to chasing new Z crosses. I can’t wait to have a pound of Z3 for Thanksgiving! Terp Hogz is selling seeds direct to your door on NXTLVL delivery in the Bay Area—if you don’t know how cool it is to shop, buy and get Terp Hogz genes delivered in a couple hours—now you know! It’s so clutch.

Do you typically grow from seed? If so, why?
Yes! I like the vigor of seeds, especially regulars—they get huge outside! There’s also less chances of a virus or pest infection from seeds vs. clones. I buy seeds all year and they keep well until it’s time to plant. (But I still might get a clone of Jokerz from Compound Genetics for this year, and if I do, I’m all about it!)

What does your grow setup look like?
I start popping indoors the first day of spring and raise babies inside where it’s warm, then sex the juveniles, and harden them on the porch in The City, before transplanting the keepers into 30-gallon fabric pots outdoors in the NorCal sun by Mother’s Day! We try and KISS (keep it simple, stupid). We use Fox Farm Ocean Forest soil plus amendments and well water on a drip timer. And BT to fight the caterpillars!

Are there certain types of cannabis or specific cultivars that do well where you are growing?
Yeah, I’m an outdoor NorCal Bay Area grower, and I’m deliberately running Humboldt Seed Co, Archive, and Terp Hogz because I think their gear tends to be tested and screened for outdoor runs. I know HumSeedCo does a bunch of mixed-light testing, and Terp Hogz in Mendo also works in mixed light. Archive’s stuff seems to be developed more indoors in Oregon, but I know that Lemon Tree has killed it outdoors in Santa Cruz.

I want to run stuff that’s been tested outside, for sure. Lots of the latest crosses are bred and tested inside and many breeders and growers don’t know how they’ll react to the variations in heat, humidity, etc. outside. I want stuff that’s hard to fuck up, as opposed to some diva that molds the second it rains, or some crazy sativa that won’t finish until November. But that’s just me! Everyone’s needs are pretty specific!

Jeff Jones
Horticulture Instructor, Oaksterdam University

What seeds are you excited for?
I am fond of recommending and growing varieties that produce well-rounded plants with new tastes and smells.

Do you typically grow from seed? If so, why?
No, but I have done so with Oaksterdam University students over the years often.

What does your grow setup look like these days?
A simple 4′ x 4′ area light up with LED lights in a larger room that I have found no need for AC to cool.

What has been your experience growing autoflowers?
To me, this is the best reason to grow from seed. They only come this way and are getting better varieties all the time.

Are there certain types of cannabis or specific cultivars that do well where you grow in Oakland?
We have a mix of urban growers that are survivors. Many obstacles to keep from having a successful harvest in tight city living. I grow inside due to this better neighborhood policy. I find less issues and arise with having long-term success. But I do know a few good areas that have outdoor gardens with little to no worry for either the garden or neighbors with bad smells.

Shango Los
Podcast Host, Shaping Fire

What seeds are you excited about this year?
Since I live on Vashon Island in the Pacific Northwest, I have to choose seeds that will finish flowering fast enough during our short summers. I’ll mostly be growing autoflowers so I can germinate them on June 1 and harvest at the end of August before the rains start. I am excited to grow the Purple Pope collaboration between Gnome Automatics and Night Owl Seeds. The flowers smell of sandalwood, lemongrass, and yuzu. Northern Cheese Haze from Mephisto Genetics is always a winner for me too. It captures some of that fresh sunshine-dried linen sweet smell of haze with the bloomy-rind cheese funk that we love cheese strains for.

The most reliable photoperiod for where I live continues to be Mandelbrot’s famous Royal Kush from Mendocino, which will often finish in 50 days. There is a new collaboration between Emerald Mountain Legacy and Mean Gene From Mendocino called Royale with Cherries that blends the gas and shorter flower times with Mean Gene’s Cherry Lime Pop which contributes a complex Maraschino cherry sweetness. It is exquisite. Last summer, it finished well ahead of all the other photos. And it hashed well for us too.

How was the 2021 Autoflower Cup? Are you experimenting with autoflowers?
The 2021 Autoflower Cup was a great gathering. For so long, autoflowers really didn’t perform as we wanted. But the modern era of autoflowers are so much better tasting and yielding. And because they can be grown nearly everywhere in the U.S., they are quickly gaining a following. And, of course, since autoflower enthusiasts are so often ridiculed by photoperiod growers, it is nice to hang with a big group of people who share this special interest.

I am past simply experimenting with autoflowers at this point and have fully embraced them. Before this season, I have grown 156 varieties. I’m at the point now where I believe in them, understand their advantages and disadvantages and can really work with them to meet my cultivation goals.
