• Fast flowering so you can beat rainy weather in fall
• Good natural resistance to mould and pests
• High yields
• Great potency, aroma, and flavour
• Superb effect
Although Sweet ZZ is indica-dominant, its effects are firmly focused on the mind, not the body. It will hit you with waves of uplifting thoughts and feel-good vibes. Add its delicious flavours of citrus, berries, and candy, and you get the physical embodiment of happiness in one awesome smoke. Good thing it’s not ultra-powerful with 15–20% THC. This way, you can savour its taste and effect for a long time before reaching the point of no return.
Honey Cream (Fast Flowering)
Growing cannabis outdoors is extremely rewarding, if mostly for the large yields and low cost of operation. Many of Royal Queen Seeds’ varieties take very well to the outdoors, thriving under the natural sunlight. That said, when it comes to outdoor growing, the strain you choose can make all the difference between success or failure. For that reason, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 outdoor strains—cultivars that are ready to harvest by late September.
Critical, which also made it into our Top 5 Strains For Colder Climates, is a vigorous and rapid-flowering indica that deserves to be featured in every cannabis ranking that exists. However, crossing Critical with the notorious OG Kush took potency to a whole new level.
With the selections on this list, you can avoid unnecessary trouble with rain and frost in October and November. While other growers are busy inspecting their developing buds for mould, you’ll be drying and curing your harvest and filling up your jars. If you missed out on our top 5 strains for colder and warmer climates, feel free to give those a look as well!
It’s time to get our hands dirty with some old-school marijuana cropping in the great outdoors. Match up the right cannabis with the local climate and you’ve taken the first step on the route to a successful outdoor harvest.
Here is a breakdown of different climate zones with recommended cannabis strains you can grow outdoors:
EUROPEAN CLIMATE ZONES: HOW MUCH SUN IS YOUR GARDEN GETTING?
Beginner growers can gain experience with some gourmet warm climate autoflowering varieties. In fact, the next-generation RQS auto hybrids are also a great option for more experienced growers looking to double-crop in a single season. Royal Haze Automatic and Northern Light Automatic immediately spring to mind as winners in a warm climate. All you have to decide is whether you prefer indica or sativa-leaning stash.
But don’t get too complacent with sativa genetics as they too can succumb to mould and fungus. Check the weather and be at the ready to harvest from September onward should the rain come early. Here are our recommended Hazes to grow in a hot and humid climate:
Sun, sea, and outstanding outdoor sinsemilla. If you are living around the Mediterranean, you are also spoiled with choices. Although, cropping cannabis strains resistant to bud mould is probably advisable, especially if you’re a novice cultivator. Unfortunately, thick, tight colas and high humidity don’t mix.
