A list of the top outdoor cannabis strains would be incomplete if OG Kush wasn’t mentioned. OG Kush owes its fame among growers and users alike due to its mellow, calming effects coupled with a potent high.
If you are growing outdoors and want the largest possible yield, then Hulkberry is the strain for you! This sativa-dominant breed is the product of mixing Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush genetics. With a THC content topping out at 27%, Hulkberry grows to a massive 2m in height and will give you a huge bounty of about 700g per plant.
This strain is a huge hit among beginners because it is hardy and resistant to many of the common fungi and pests that plague cannabis plants. This low-maintenance variety is in pure heaven when grown in hot climates. However, you will do well in moderate conditions if you provide shelter, such as a greenhouse, where conditions are warm and ample sunshine gets to the plants.
When it comes to heartiness, Super Silver Haze is just as good as White Widow, so it needed to be on this list. Super Silver Haze is easy to grow, quickly taking root and thriving wherever it is.
Grow with the Sun
White Widow has a high THC content that is known to raise one’s mood while also easing aches and pains. The colas are covered with a thick, white-colored resin that gives the strain its name. That resin also helps make this strain resistant (to a certain extent) to fungi, pests and diseases. This is why we recommend it for outdoor growers since they face a reduced risk of failure due to one of those variables. In terms of yield, expect to harvest about 300g per plant.
The buds produced from this strain are spicy, skunky, and fragrant, leaving your body relaxed, and your spirit lifted. Like Hulkberyy and Moby Dick, however, Super Silver Haze grows huge, so you will need to provide ample space for this plant to thrive. Super Silver Haze traces its roots to Skunk, Haze and Northern Lights.
However, an outdoor grow environment also presents unique challenges, such as temperature variations, torrential rain and a higher risk of pest and disease incidents. It is, therefore, essential to select the most appropriate cannabis strains for growing outdoors so that your efforts aren’t in vain when the time comes to harvest your crop. Here is our carefully compiled list of the best weed strains to grow outside, based on their ability to reward you for your efforts.
