Short Flowering Time
Breeders know it for a fact that female plants give much better yield and after flowering within 17 days you can find out whether it is a male or not and within 21 days you get confirmation of the plant being a female; this is quite fast and is very helpful for the breeders to plan their harvest accordingly.
Lowryder is a popular auto-flowering cannabis seed that was actually developed for a very rapid growth cycle in which it transfers from seed to bud in just 8 weeks.
As much as we love Lowryder marijuana seeds, this is not the strain for everybody. But hey, all strains have their pros and cons. The reason we warn shoppers about Lowryder is the psychoactive effects come on slow — but powerful. Sometimes, smokers grow impatient because they do not feel high or buzzed right away and go to smoke more. You can see how this could lead to over-smoking. If you choose to go with Lowryder, rest assured that you will get high. The effects are strong, they just take longer than the average strain.
So, what kind of effect can you expect from Lowryder? To put it simply: you’ll feel good (really good) and energetic. It’s a nice afternoon smoke if you want to decompress mentally but still have bodily energy. Lowryder will make you feel alert, talkative, and enthusiastic about life. Isn’t that what we all want? You can also enjoy Lowryder in a multitude of ways as this is a great strain to use the vape pen with.
The effects of Lowryder come on slow but powerful, so be patient with this strain when smoking. You’ll feel alert, energized, but relaxed at the same time.
Lowryder marijuana seeds are a cross between Northern Lights #2 and William’s Wonder. Based on the parent strains, one can predict that Lowryder carries an earthy aroma that radiates from the small, conic buds. For curious growers, the autoflowering time of Lowryder is between 40 to 45 days. One whiff of this stuff will transport you to the woods. Imagine hiking through the aromas of twigs, leaves, and wild mushrooms. That’s what Lowryder reminds us of. It’s both relaxing and outdoorsy.
Following 3 generations of selective in-breeding Lowryder #2 was ready and fully-stabilised. The smoke is strong with a much-improved flavour and better yields. Its buds are larger, tighter and more aromatic than the original Lowryder strain. As with Original Lowryder a separate room or light cycle is totally unnecessary to flower Lowryder #2. Outdoors, Lowryder #2 will mature quicker than any non-auto-flowering variety.
Lowryder #2 was created by the legendary breeder The Joint Doctor, responsible for creating the very first commercially available auto-flowering strain – Lowryder. He has been working on auto-flowering genetics longer than any breeder and his famous strains are all offered now through Seedsman Seeds.
Lowryder #2 was the second in the long line of successful auto-flowering strains introduced to the world by The Joint Doctor following on the heels of the Original Lowryder #1 strain. Lowryder 2 improved the potency, flavour and yield of the original auto strain whilst remaining 100% automatic, i.e. not requiring a reduction in hours of light in order to promote the flowering phase. Superior genetics from the Brazilian Santa Maria strain were added to contribute increased potential for resin production, an exotic flavour and a special, soaring sativa high.
Therapeutically this strain has been found to be beneficial to sufferers of ADD and ADHD.
