Best weed to grow indoors for beginners

Tried-and-true, Blue Dream is a classic and one of the most popular strains, for both consumers and growers. This cross of Blueberry and Haze originated in Northern California and is a dream to grow—it usually grows big and strong and has high yields of buds, likely a result of its sativa-dominant genetics. Be sure to scrog it to maximize yields.

Its indica-dominant genetics means it usually grows short and stout, but it still gets solid yields and has dense buds. You’ll want to be sure to prune and top Wedding Cake to get rid of some of its foliage, for fear of it developing mold. This frosty strain is covered in trichomes and will be a sticky one in your garden, but its sweet citrusy smells with hints of vanilla make it a pleasure to grow.

Wedding Cake

A relative newcomer to the strain world, Wedding Cake is a Cookies cross that launched a whole new family of cake strains, such as Ice Cream Cake, LA Kush Cake, Cake Batter, and so much more.

Super Lemon Haze

Sour OG is a great strain for beginners looking to grow something a little different. This OG Kush and Sour Diesel cross has a complex mix of scents—skunk, spice, and of course fuel, with some hints of pine and lemon.

The White Widow strain does best in sunny, warm weather. However, it adapts well to cooler climates. White Widow cannabis plants are generally ready for harvesting by the end of October. Successful outdoor crops result in high yields of 21 ounces or more per plant.

If you grow Cinex indoors, it has a flowering time of 7-9 weeks. It yields around 19 ounces per square meter. If you cultivate it outdoors, it should generate an average of 16 ounces of bud per plant. Cinex is typically ready to harvest by the beginning of October.

3 – Green Crack (Sativa)

When looking for some easy strains to grow outdoors, it helps if you live in a warm, sunny, Mediterranean-like climate. Certain cannabis plants thrive outdoors. Therefore, it is much easier (and far less costly) to grow these strains outside in an optimal climate rather than replicating the same conditions indoors.

Another significant factor that helps make a strain easy to grow outdoors is high resistance to disease and pests.

Please note that this marijuana strain has a modest average THC level of 12% and provides just 11 ounces of bud per square meter.

4. White Widow

For indoor growers, GG4 will provide up to 18 ounces per square meter, and its flowering time is 8-9 weeks. If you grow outdoors, it produces up to 21 ounces per plant with a harvest date of mid-October. GG4 also offers high resin production, making it a clear favorite for users looking to investigate the effects of concentrate. When it’s time for harvest, bring an extra pair of scissors because wet trimming clogs up the blades quickly.

Cinex is a slightly sativa-dominant (60%) strain with a THC content of between 22% and 25%. It is a cross of Vortex and Cinderella 99. It has a reputation for providing users with a burst of energy that instantly makes them feel more productive and creative. Cinex’s parents ensure it is an easy to grow strain.

Years of non-stop experimentation and breeding for positive traits has resulted in there being a superabundance of strains available. The sheer number of choices can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, it’s pretty fun when you start with a little bit of information and choosing a good strain is very rewarding!

On the flip side, a photoperiod plant gives you as much time as you need to dial in your grow and make mistakes because it won’t start making buds until you “tell” it to. That gives you time to conduct experiments and/or really see what a plant can do!

When it comes to growing medical marijuana, the goal is usually to grow strains that are either very high in THC (psychoactive effects), high in CBD (relaxing effect), or high in both.
