The pungent pine and citrus smell of Gorilla Glue Auto is tantalising, and the sight of the super sticky buds will make you eager to get to harvest. Thankfully you won’t have long to wait, as flowering time occurs between 8 to 10 weeks. Gorilla Glue is named after the unusual stickiness and generous quantities of the resin (which makes it ideal for hash production). Still, some also think that it refers to the heavy gluey nature of the powerful stone effects, which can glue you to your sofa thanks to THC levels which are 20- 24%.
Autoflowers are varieties of weed that don’t depend on specific hours of light or dark to grow and bloom in the same way as photo dependent cannabis varieties. Automatic strains start to flower as soon as they achieve sexual maturity and this can occur as early as 3 or 4 weeks after they have germinated. The genetics come from Ruderalis which evolved in northern Russia, where light conditions are very different to plants originating in the Kush or Latin America.

The resin of GSC is thick, copious and sticky, making it ideal for oils, hash, and extracts. Girl Scout Cookies autos are 60% Indica which means you can look forward to couch-lockingly heavy stones mixed with euphoric highs that will benefit mind, body and soul. There is also a range of medical benefits, and it is believed to alleviate the symptoms of depression, anxiety and pain.
The Santa Maria Autoflower is a true winner in terms of yield as well as having a rapid flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks. Santa Maria is the result of a crossing with Santa Marta, a renowned Brazilian strain with the Colombian Santa Maria. And adding some Ruderalis for good measure. Santa Maria can be grown indoors or outside. Although its resistance to damp, cold and mould makes it challenging in northern Europe, it can thrive if there is enough sunlight. We recommend growing Santa Maria indoors, where you will be amazed at the high-quality yield of this determined little autoflower.
If you want to harvest a little sooner, you can apply certain products which advance maturation by a few days, both for autos and for standard cannabis strains.
