Traits: Fast Flowering, Resistant to Cold

Blue Cheese is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that is famous for its flowering times, potency and trademark pungent smell! A cross between Blueberry and an original Cheese, this strain has a THC content of about 18%, making it a staple in the cannabis market.

Many seedbanks offer their own versions of Blue Cheese. However, you should expect a sturdy and fast flowering plant, which will be ready for harvest within eight weeks. It is resistant to cold, so outdoor growing is also an option. Some training could be useful if you want to increase yields. Also, this strain is a big fan of nutrients, so be sure to supply it with lots of nitrogen, magnesium, and calcium.

Traits: Potent, Hardy

LSD is a creation of the legendary Barney’s Farm seedbank in Amsterdam, as they crossed a Mazar and Skunk#1 to produce it. It is a bit harder to grow than other strains on this list, but it is one of the most resistant to disease and insects. You can grow this anywhere without much to worry about. LSD will flower in about 9-10 weeks, which is a bit longer, but will repay you with great yields of up to 650 grams per square meters.

With a THC level of up to 22%, the LSD is a weird case for an Indica. Users report a mind-numbing high, combined with a strong couchlock effect.

Traits: Delicious, Fast Flowering

Cream Caramel was bred with stability and vigor in mind. A 90% indica cross between Maple Leaf, White Rhino, and Blue Black, this strain offers an amazing relaxing effect. However, the strong point of this hybrid is taste: The smell of licorice and the delicious hints of caramel overpower the user and hit with immediate effect!

This strain will flower within eight weeks from seed and has a reputation for being sturdy and forgiving among newbie growers.

Buddha Magnum (Autoflowering)

Traits: Great Yields, Fast Flowering

Although autoflowering seeds are not usually very tall or high-yielding, the Magnum is a strain that defies all stereotypes. Bred and sold exclusively by the Buddha Seedbank, this exemplary breed reaches impressive sizes for an autoflowering variety!

Naturally, the breeders are cryptic with the genetic makeup of their plants, so we don’t know which combination gave us this force of nature. What we do know is that if you grow it outside, you will end up with a plant that can exceed 4 feet in height and produce up to 200gr per plant. However, Buddha Seeds insist that the strain can be confined inside if grown carefully.

Auto Lemon OG

Traits: Fast Flowering, Great Taste

As the name suggests, this auto-flowering variety has a trademark citrus taste that is a famous trait of Haze genetics. As such, Auto Lemon OG will take you on a ride! Although this plant is hardy and easy to grow, the breeder suggests that you should watch out during the vegetative period, as she tends to grow unexpectedly!

Auto Lemon OG is a cross between OG Kush, Haze #1 and Las Vegas Lemon Skunk. Expect flowering within eight weeks and an average yield of 300-400gr/square meters.

Gorilla Glue #4

Traits: Cup Winner, Hardy

Gorilla Glue #4 is a must for newbie growers who want to grow pure-THC marijuana plants. With a THC to CBD ratio averaging 25:1, this is an award-winning strain that owes its namesake to the sticky resin that collects on the scissors while trimming.

The hybrid is made from a cross between Sour Diesel, Chem’s Sister, Chocolate Diesel and Sour Dubb. It has also won awards at the 2014 Cannabis Cup in Los Angeles and Michigan. Expect growing within nine weeks from seed, but watch out for the appearance of male pollen sacks, as this plant has a tendency towards hermaphroditism.
