short season cannabis seed strains

Job number one is to establish how much daily sunlight your cannabis plants are likely to receive during the growing season. Once you know the timeframe you have to work with, you can begin to consider which strains are the best fits. Keep an eye on the local weather forecast and do a little online research. Find accurate data on hours of daily sunlight, sunrise and sunset times, temperatures day and night, prevailing winds, and precipitation frequency.

What kind of cannabis you choose to cultivate and where you sow the seeds will dictate your outdoor crop’s performance. Our breakdown of the perfect strains for each climate zone will help you grow fire marijuana throughout spring, summer, and autumn.

COOL NORTHERN LATITUDES

For these climates, high-calibre Hazes are recommended. Their slightly looser flower formation and greater tolerance for humidity make sativa hybrids the perfect choice for the coastal cultivator. Of course, sativa genetics will add a few weeks to bloom, even for autoflowering Hazes. Then again, you have from April to October, so you’re not really in a rush. Plenty of time to harvest the finest headstash!

Sour Diesel is another legendary cannabis strain that any “serious” cultivator shouldn’t miss out on growing. With roots in sunny California, she’s well adapted to dry and sunny climates. Here, the plant can grow to its full potential. This 70% sativa can reach a height of 2m and flowers over 10–11 weeks. Despite the slightly prolonged flowering period, she can provide an epic yield of up to 600g/plant. Among her highlights is her trademark fuel-like aroma and taste, which is highly sought-after by cannabis enthusiasts. She provides a relaxing but clear high.

It would be a shame not to dabble with some fine photoperiod strains in a warmer climate. How about some organic, soil-cultivated OG Kush or Sour Diesel goodness to have your ladies growing into great ganja trees for some truly monster yields? But do keep an eye out when growing in these hot climate zones, as the scorching sun can be too much for plants to handle in excess. Shade, rather than shelter from rain, may be required. Watch out for heatwaves! Here are our favourites when growing in a hot and dry climate:

Our team has created both fast-flowering feminized genetics and autoflowering genetics to satisfy all types of growers. The former offers all the benefits of photoperiod strains, but with a reduced flowering time.

Our fastest genetics of 2021 allow growers to set up and close down their operation as quickly as possible. Plant seeds, watch them surge, and harvest buds within a couple of months. Each of our diverse seed categories offers something speedy, so you can choose between high-THC strains, those filled with terps, CBD varieties, and even CBDV.

Quick One

Fast Flowering strains are hybrids of these and autoflowering strains. They are genetically coded to produce flowers quickly with little care, but still rely on a change in photoperiod to flower.

Feminized cannabis seeds are designed to produce only female plants. Feminized seeds will produce a female plant 99.99% of the time. Don’t waste your time trying to produce flower from a male plant – they will only pollinate you females, resulting in seeds rather than bud.

After germinating these seeds, Easy Bud will explode into a mature plant in as little as eight weeks. Prepare to harvest up to 325g/m² from indoor plants, and between 30–80g/plant from outdoor specimens.
