This stunning strain produces dark purple flowers coated in trichomes and dotted with dark orange pistils. She inherited her stunning good looks from legendary parent strains Wedding Cake, Gelato, and Gelato 33. Speedy and indica-dominant, Wedding Gelato produces 450–550g/m² after a brief flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Her powerful lineup of parents also passed down enormous THC levels of 25% and one of the sweetest terpene profiles on the planet. Brace yourself for a body-slamming high that diffuses tension and elevates the mind into euphoria for several hours at a time.
Royal Runtz packs some serious heat. Her dense and resinous flowers hold massive levels of THC and terpenes that light up the taste buds. With a THC content of 27%, she holds the title as one of the strongest strains in the RQS archive. You’ll feel her energising and euphoric high set in after only a couple of hits. Although her tastes of candy and fruit will tempt you to keep smoking, you should take your time with this potent lady to find your sweet spot.
3. Green Crack Punch
Fat Banana is the offspring of famed parent strains Banana and OG Kush. Naturally, she’s loaded with flavour and endowed with some serious potency. This indica-dominant cross features 70% indica genetics and 30% sativa. Her dense and resinous buds produce a titanic THC content of 25%. This cultivar delivers a tropical-flavoured body high that releases an internal pressure valve. Stress and anxiety melt away, and a sense of euphoria takes hold. Her fruity tastes make this strain a great addition to edibles such as banana bread and brownies.
Purple Queen is a sight to behold. This royal specimen dominates the landscape in grow rooms and gardens. Her eye-catching colas feature a bright green core and expand out into shades of deep purple. Her fan leaves—radiating bright pink—are equally as alluring. This unique colour is thanks to flavonoids known as anthocyanins, which produce a spectrum of pigments from red to black. Purple Queen is an indica-dominant specimen, the progeny of Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani. She’s ultimately a strain for the evenings, when her sedating effects can fully take hold. Her multicoloured flowers produce a THC content of 22% and a terpene profile defined by notes of citrus.
Sweet ZZ is a highly productive strain with a relatively fast flowering time of 7–9 weeks. Grown indoors, she’ll pump out up to 600g/m² while advancing to a height of 140cm. Outdoor plants grown in containers or garden beds will reward with up to 550g/plant and peak at a height of 200cm. Expect to harvest outdoor plants during late September.

You’ll taste more than just one slice of lemon in Lemon Haze…
Here too, stress, pain, and depression are the main spheres of inlfuence; without a doubt, its high limonene content contributes squarely to these effects. Beyond medicinal applications, a cheerful, happy mood is the main result of the refreshing terpenes in Lemon Ice’s profile. What makes Lemon Ice unique, though, is her ability to bring all the jolly vibes of limonene, while still being sufficiently relaxing to promote a good night’s sleep. Of course, that’s partly due to other terpenes present in its makeup: with Northern Lights in its lineage, kushy flavours are prominent in the overall bouqiet.
Top Limonene Strain 2: Lemon Ice
Lemonene may be an ally in the fight against cancer.
Limonene is easy to detect by its highly distinctive scent. The smell is reminiscent of lime, orange and lemon. Still, two different variants of the same limonene molecule exist: the so-called stereo isomers. These are in fact two versions of the same molecule, only arranged differently in terms of their 3D structure. Whereas D-limonene smells like oranges and other citrus fruits, L-limonene carries the scent of pines.
A slice of lemon in your grow?
If a strain of weed contains lots of limonene, that will affect the high it causes. Although limonene does not trigger psychoactive effects of itself, the entourage effect allows terpenes to influence how other terpenes and cannabinoids work. In addition, limonene increases permeability of the mucous membranes and the skin, which could help increase the effect of edibles or topicals, for example.
Then, the creation of feminized cannabis seeds in the 1990s revolutionised cannabis cultivation. Feminized cannabis seeds are genetically engineered to only become female plants, and they almost always (99.9%) do so. Eliminating the game of chance, this advancement made growing cannabis much easier, as well as more economical.
Outdoors, planting your feminized cannabis in an optimal climate and during the right season is pivotal. Why? Because sunlight hours change depending on the season, and your plants need a specific schedule to thrive. To satisfy this need, you will usually want to plant them in spring (when there’s no frost) and harvest in fall.
FEMINIZED CANNABIS SEEDS AT A GLANCE
Most cannabis strains these days aren’t pure indicas or sativas. Rather, they are hybrids combining indica and sativa characteristics, and thus their growing characteristics vary.
• Those who use cannabis for holistic purposes also choose feminized strains for their pronounced effect. They may find that the THC lifts their mood and helps them wind down in tense situations, or simply takes the edge off whatever symptom they’re dealing with. Users also report that THC helps them achieve a good night’s sleep, along with other benefits.
• Recreational users enjoy the stoning, relaxing, euphoric, or uplifting high induced by feminized strains. Given the vast variety of options out there, users can find some chill time in the evening or enjoy an energetic daytime buzz, depending on what they’re after. Also, since many strains feature different ratios of cannabinoids, terpenes, and sativa/indica genetics, you can experiment with different feminized strains to find a sweet spot in terms of effect.
