With more states opening regulations around marijuana use and growth, many people are looking at options for growing their own crops. But where do you start and what strains are best for beginners? For those living in areas where it is legal to grow marijuana, here are some good options for your first crop:
Strain #1: Blue Dream
Hailed as one of the most popular strains, Blue Dream is a great starting point for growers and is a popular option for cannabis enthusiasts. It has relatively low requirements for care and can handle a range of temperatures, humidity, and light levels. This hardy strain can also handle cold nights and can adapt to indoor or outdoor growing environments. So as long as you’re not in the grip of a brutal winter, no matter where you are, Blue Dream makes for a thriving cannabis plant.
Strain #2: Wedding Cake
If this name seems a bit unique that is because it is. This is also one of the newest strains of marijuana available readily for growers. As a new strain, this variety is made from crossing several other popular cultivars and has created a stout plant that is compact and full of leaves. You get high quality yields and dense buds, just on a much smaller plant which makes it easy to grow in smaller settings. The Wedding Cake plant does need care to prevent molding though due to dense foliage.
Strain #3: Super Lemon Haze
For those who love citrus tones, this is a great marijuana plant to consider. For beginning growers who want something enjoyable and easy to care for, the fast-growing Super Lemon Haze is a great option. It is a cross between two very popular strains and blends potent levels with bright citrusy tones for a unique plant growing experience. While it is low-maintenance in general, this variety some space to grow as it can get very tall and bushy when it gets to a mature size.
Strain #4: GMO Cookies
Unlike other crosses that are made for flavor alone, this variety was made for good production levels and harvest potential. A cross between two big-name strains, the unique thing about GMO Cookies is that is has a very distinct flavor and is a bit of a slow grower overall. It can around nine to ten weeks to flower and be ready for harvest, but the grower’s patience will well be rewarded with a delightful marihuana crop that will be popular with just about everyone.
