Growing cannabis outdoors is becoming a lot more common with the relaxation in regulations in the US. It is important to only select the best cannabis strains for growing outside in order to maximize the success of your grow. Growing outside can be beneficial when it comes to analyzing final yields compared to start-up costs. Here are the two strains we recommend.
- Indica-dominant strain
- Flowering period: Approximately 6 weeks
- Best month for harvest is September
One of my personal favorites is Honey Cream. This is a great strain if you are looking to grow outside in Europe. The sweet and creamy aromas are rather unique to this strain, and have received praise throughout the cannabis growing community. It only takes around 6 weeks during the flowering period, so you can get a good yield in a short period of time.
As well as the short flowering period and great taste, this is an Indica-dominant strain. It was originally formed from a cross between Blueberry and Black Domina, as well as Maple Leaf Indica & White Rhino. This is where Honey Cream gets its Indica genetics from. You can expect the height of the Honey Cream plant to reach 1.8m to 2.5m and yield approximately 675g/plant, making it an excellent yielding strain for outdoor growing.
- Formed from a cross between Green Poison x Chile Indica
- Indica-dominant Strain
- Flowering Period: Approximately 6 weeks
- Best Harvest month of September
Speedy Chile is another one of our recommended strains for outdoor growing. Like Honey Cream, it has a short flowering period. Formed from a cross between Green Poison and Chile Indica, it offers an Indica dominant experience. It should be noted that Speedy Chile isn’t a strain that has an autoflowering trait. This means it is a feminized strain and only flowers based on the number of hours of light it receives per day. Many people believe that fast flowering strains such as Honey Cream and Speedy Chile will form the next generation of autoflowering genetics. Beware though, make sure you build up a tolerance of THC before you use these strains, as they have high THC concentrations.
Whatever strain you choose out of Honey Cream and Speedy Chile, you will get an excellent outdoor yield.
For more information on the latest strains to grow outdoors, we’d recommend you contact your local seed merchant or your local dispensary (use the dispensaries near me open now tool), and they will recommend which strain will be suitable for your local climate.
