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.
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 sturdiness gives it a large margin of error when growing, in case you forget to water or give it nutrients, or give it too many nutrients for that matter. Blue Dream grows well in many different climates, both indoors and outdoors and can handle cold nights.
Another relatively new strain, GMO Cookies will smell like nothing you’ve ever grown before—its nickname is “Garlic Cookies.” Crossing two classic strains, GSC and Chemdog, GMO has dense, sticky, light green buds with orange hairs and is a high yielder. Its trichome levels make it a good one for pressing your own hash.
Super Lemon Haze
This strain can handle many climates, both indoors and outdoors, but it can take a long time to flower—more like nine or ten weeks. Regardless, GMO Cookies is a new standard that packs a punch and brings some great savory scents to your garden.
A newer favorite of ours, Wedding Crasher has a classy lineage: Wedding Cake and Purple Punch. This hybrid leans toward the indica side with Purple Punch in its roots and has short, dense buds with hints of purple.

Some strains grow better in an indoor environment, while others do better outdoors. Indoor growers typically go for short, stout plants because they take up less space, which can be limited indoors.
Indoor weed is famous for its high quality, and you can grow it anytime of year if you’ve got the right space for it. Grow tents and grow lights are cheap and easy to use, and you’ll cover the initial cost of investment quickly.
Feminized seeds are also useful because they ensure every plant is a bud-producing female, which saves space in your indoor grow because you won’t have to grow males and get rid of them.
Dessert strains are in right now, so finding seeds and clones of Wedding Crasher shouldn’t be too tough.
Bruce Banner is a great old-school strain that flowers quickly and packs a hefty, euphoric punch.
If you love a certain strain that takes 11 weeks to flower, go for it, but whichever strain you choose, check the breeder or seed bank’s information on it to get a sense of how it’ll grow.
If you’re looking to grow a cannabis plant for the first time, PotGuide is here with the easiest marijuana strains for first-timers to grow.

Like Blue Dream, Cinderella 99 has a natural resistance to mildew, root rot, and other pests that makes it great for growers riding that learning curve. Despite being a euphoric sativa that’s also great for migraines, the plant grows squat like an indica. It’s another fast-flowering strain, reaching maturity in as little as 45 days.
The strain flowers in just 45 days, but the real benefit of Northern Lights is its hardiness for first-time growers. This may be the best indoor plant to start with, as it can survive a lot of first-timer mistakes. Pour on too much water, not enough water, pick the wrong distance for the lights, don’t ventilate properly, and Northern Lights will forgive you with colas of strong indicas. As an added bonus, Northern Lights isn’t too smelly, which helps if you’re growing in secret. It also stays short for growing in closets.
