Before dropping a seed into some soil, we recommend giving some thought to what kind of strain you want to grow. Consider how much space you have available, how much money you’re willing to spend, what kind of high and flavours you enjoy when you smoke, and your local weather patterns and climate.
Explore our strain selection categories below to find the best easy strains to suit your preferences.
Special Queen 1
Beginner growers often don’t want to invest large amounts of money into a new hobby. If this applies to you, we advise purchasing cheaper seeds. This means less pressure to produce a perfect outcome, making for a more pleasant and casual growing experience. Oh, and “cheap seeds” doesn’t equate to bad genetics. Many cheaper varieties offer superb yields of high-quality flowers.
If you’re just setting foot on your cannabis growing journey, starting off with easy genetics will really help you along the way. You’ll still need to take good care of your plants, but hardy, beginner-friendly strains are much more forgiving and easier to cultivate.
Clocking in at €4.50 for a single seed, Special Queen 1 offers a fantastic return on investment. She descends from a mix of genetics from Mexico, Colombia, and beyond, and provides a long-lasting high that targets the body and the mind. With a THC content of 18% and an average yield of 550g/m², Special Queen offers substantial bang for your buck.
Zkittlez is every bit as sweet a strain as the name suggests. This indica-dominant strain smells of candy and berries and has a loyal fanbase that swears by its strong, enjoyable high.
The effects are described by the company as strong, producing a lively and energetic high.
One shortcut that can really help a marijuana growing novice is to opt for “auto-flowering” strains, which produce hardy, durable plants that require very little growing expertise and can produce harvestable flowers in as little as two months. You can also opt for feminized cannabis seeds, which are almost certain to be female (and thus, bud-producing), and tend to have higher yields than auto-flowering strains.
Autoflowering and Feminized Seeds
For many patients, mobility is a real issue, so being able to provide your own supply without having to venture out or rely on caretakers can be a real quality of life improver.
For beginner growers, this autoflower strain is also a piece of cake. It can be grown indoors or outdoors, and produces around 4-6 ounces on a compact frame, in as little as eight weeks.
And while that effect may not be for everybody, with levels of THC that can be well over 25%, this indica-dominant hybrid provides a lot of bang for the buck.
It’s been popular since the 1990s and is a potent hybrid with almost equal amounts of Indica and Sativa, which helps it produce well balanced effects that have made it a favorite for multiple generations of cannabis fans. It’s not too strong for everyday use, but also won’t leave the average user feelings disappointed either.
