Before we begin looking at individual strains, it’s important, that we understand the northern climate and what grow conditions we’re dealing with.
It is important to realize, that we have painted a very general picture of northern climates here, and that conditions obviously vary between different geographical locations. Hence, it is really important you understand your local climate and how to prepare for it before beginning your grow op.
TOP 5 INDICA STRAINS TO GROW IN THE NORTH
“Northern climate” is a term that loosely refers to any climate of the northern hemisphere. These conditions are very generalised by cold winters and relatively cool summers, but obviously vary between different parts of the northern hemisphere.
Regular cannabis depends on its photoperiod for flowering, and is also seasonal. That means, that northern growers will usually germinate seeds between April and May and collect their harvests between October and November.
Luckily, thanks to expert breeding, there are a variety of cannabis varieties, that’ll still produce excellent results even in the most unforgiving northern climates. In this post we share a handpicked list of our top indica strains to grow in the northern hemisphere.
Whoever said quality cannabis couldn’t be grown in northern regions never met Sweet ZZ. This stoning indica prefers a warm climate, but barely even detects when things get a little cold. Sweet ZZ earned recognition in the cannabis world primarily for her fruity and zesty flavour, inherited from scrumptious parent strains Grape Ape and Grapefruit. As well as producing irresistible terpenes, her bulbous flowers churn out a THC content of 22%—nothing to be scoffed at! A few tokes sends a heavy wave of euphoria over every inch of the body.
This bushy, indica dominant plant can rake in over 2kg per plant outdoors. As well as being highly resistant to most problematic fungus and rot, it is super easy to grow, making it a great choice for first time outdoor growers. This is not one to be missed.
Not all cannabis plants grow well outside. Cannabis has been selectively bred by the indoor growing community so many times that now we have plants that have almost outgrown the outdoors. So which strains can you grow in your back garden? This article will send you in the right direction.
Sensi Amnesia – Sensi Seeds
Spliff Seeds has gifted us with this juicy Kush strain that is loaded with fruity berry flavour. This potent, high yielding plant is the result of crossing Spliff’s Strawberry with OG Kush, making it perfectly resilient outdoor wonder bud.
West Coast OG has won multiple awards for being a top genetic in the autoflowering community. This chunky indica can yield up to 650g of beautiful kushy flower in around 9 – 10 weeks from seed to harvest, making this another exceptional addition to your outdoor garden.
This strain is the result of crossing Blueberry and Mazar and then crossed with Amsterdam Amnesia to result in Skywalker Haze, a hard hitting sativa-dominant hybrid with a citrus flavor, while still having that legendary Mazar / Blueberry punch and flavor. Very high in THC levels and Skywalker Haze is a plant that can get a bit elongated and can take 9-10 weeks to complete.
