Best cannabis seeds for UK climate

Cannabis varieties Growing

The climate of the UK is cold and wet. Not ideal for the cultivation of a weed plant. Of course you don’t suffer from this when you grow indoors, but if you want to grow outdoors in the UK, it can be a challenge. Fortunately, breeders have developed varieties that can produce good yields even in the climates of the UK. Good results do I hear you think? We actually mean excellent results! In this blog we show you our top 5 best cannabis seeds for UK climate.

The climate of the UK

Before we share our top 5, it’s important to explain the climate of the UK. In this way you understand the growing conditions better and you start your breeding well prepared.

With the exception of autoflowers, the flowering of marijuana strains is seasonal, which means that outside growers in the UK germinate their seeds between April and May and, depending on the species, harvest between mid-September and the end of October.

Although the climate in the different regions of the UK is not very different, it’s important to realize that the climate in the UK is not the same everywhere. However, in general you can say that the UK climate is characterized by cold and wet winters with relatively cool summers. That are precisely the greatest negative factors for the growth of a cannabis plant. Both cold weather and frost can have an adverse effect on the harvest. The UK climate is therefore not ideal for outdoor growing. Nevertheless, it’s possible to realize a qualitative outdoor cultivation in the UK. Especially if you choose the right strain.

In our top 5 you will therefore find the five most robust types of weed that can produce excellent results even in the most ruthless circumstances.
