Cannabis varieties Growing

When growing weed, one of the most common rookie mistakes is not selecting the right strain for the growing medium. When it comes to hydroponics – the method of growing cannabis in water to which nutrients are added -choosing a suitable strain is vital for a successful grow. To make things easier for you; here are ten amazing strains, all of which are particularly well-suited for a hydroponic set-up:

Why are hydro strains so popular?

Although arguably demanding higher levels of skill and attention than conventional growing methods, hydroponic strains are increasingly popular. Hydro strains do not necessarily produce greater yields, but they tend to grow faster and more reliably than weed that is grown outdoors. For beginner and advanced hydroponic growers, the following strains are all highly recommended.

2. Blue Dream

Blue Dream is famous for being one of the easiest strains of weed to grow, which is why it is ideally suited for experimenting with hydroponics.

Growing

Blue Dream is a plant with an overwhelming desire to grow tall and vigorously, which is why it is virtually impossible for a novice to get it wrong.

Blue Dream is one of the most popular strains in the USA, thanks to her ability to calm and stimulate creativity whilst offering a sense of euphoria.

3. Amnesia Haze

Amnesia Haze is a world-famous cannabis strain that contains mainly Sativa genetics and a high THC content. These seeds result from a crossing of very stable parents, have an excellent germination capacity, and do well in hydroponics.

Growing

Amnesia Haze feminized cannabis seeds can be grown both indoors and outdoors. However, this cannabis plant will grow and flower more stably when grown indoors because it is sensitive to bad weather conditions, so hydroponics is ideal. This cannabis plant will provide you with a high yield of THC rich cannabis.

Effects, taste and odour

4. Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush is a feminized, Indica-dominant strain and is arguably one of the best Indica’s this world has to offer. A true legend. It is, therefore, no coincidence that the species is one of the ten most sought-after species in America.

Growing

5. Girl Scout Cookies

Growing

Girl Scout Cookies is a cannabis plant that does not deliver vast amounts of weed, but she does give you a good quality of delicious weed. This is a strain that is regularly cultivated as medicinal cannabis, mainly for anxiety, depression and chronic pain. GSC does very well in hydroponics.

GSC’s taste is reminiscent of chocolate with a light mint flavour. The high is uplifting and calming, sending users into a trance of euphoria and a thought-provoking cerebral mood.

6. Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is a classic strain that consists of a nice balance of Indica and Sativa genetics. This cannabis strain is very well known and is one of the most cultivated strains in the world, particularly in the USA.

Growing

Sour Diesel cannabis seeds are easy to germinate and will grow into beautiful cannabis plants that produce a good yield of sturdy buds. The THC content of this great hydro strain is pretty high, and so novice smokers should approach it with caution.

Effects, taste and odour

Sour Diesel has fast-acting and energising effects, which are the results of its Indica and Sativa influences. The smell and taste are pleasantly woody and skunky with lingering notes of pungent diesel.

7. OG Kush

OG Kush is intensely popular at the moment, perhaps because it’s the favourite strain of rappers such as Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J. Or it could be because it is a great smoke, packed with THC.

Growing

The kush can be grown indoors and outdoors. However, indoor cultivation is preferred because it tends to grow small, sturdy and bushy, making it easy to manage in small spaces. You can choose to top her so that the lower stems also get more air, ensuring an even better harvest.

Effects, taste and odour

The effect will take place very quickly, and this is particularly noticeable in the brain. Your focus will increase so that colours and sounds can be experienced as more intense. This will then lead to a refreshing feeling resulting in intense euphoria. This combination of mental and conversational stimulation will increase your interest in social activities.

OG Kush has an earthy and musty aroma mixed with fresh citrus. However, the smoke can sting and induce coughing. It can be harsh on the nasal cavity and cause watery eyes, as it is a heavy boy. The taste is hash-like, spicy and has a classic indica flavour on the inhale and exhale.

8. Skywalker OG

Skywalker OG is a cross between Skywalker and OG Kush. The cross between the two resulted in a dominant indica hybrid with a THC content of up to 20%. If you are in the process of making your own hash, this is a great variety. It produces a good resin, perfect for collection and extractions. Furthermore, this strain is relatively easy to grow and can be grown by new growers.

Growing

The Skywalker OG hydro strain is highly resistant to insects and stress, mainly due to its Skywalker OG genetics. You can grow her both indoors and outdoors; under optimal conditions, she will yield high yields of weed. In addition, you do not have to master cultivation techniques or be an advanced grower to grow great results from these cannabis seeds.

Effects, taste and odour

Skywalker is a fairly strong weed with intense effects inducing relaxation and euphoria. Look forward to an excellent smoke with a piney kush flavour with citrus notes and a subtle hint of diesel.

9. Green Crack

Green Crack was born from the cross between the late eighties SSSC Skunk # 1 and an Isolated Afghani Cut. The result is a strong, solid, easy to grow, short flowering, potent and productive strain.

Growing

Green Crack grows strongly, and growth must be controlled in order to have enough space for flowering. It resembles a Christmas tree in shape, with an abundant production of large and heavy buds covered with resin.

Effects, taste and odour

Green Crack is a range intended for those looking for aromatic qualities and a sweet and fruity taste of excellent quality and high performance. It is a very popular variety in California.

Green Crack has an intense flavour, with hints of tropical fruits, sandalwood and incense. The high is a powerful and euphoric brain rush stimulant, typically Sativa. In addition, this strain is suitable for therapeutic use.

10. Jack Herer

Jack Herer is a specific strain of cannabis named after the American politician ‘Jack Herer’ in tribute to him and his work. Jack Herer was created through a careful crossing in the 1990s and has won several cannabis prizes. The weed from the Jack Herer plant is delicious and spicy.

Growing

These feminized cannabis seeds grow into a fine medium-sized cannabis plant with beautiful buds and a powerful scent.

Effects, taste and odour

Jack Herer’s complex genetic background results in a delicate balance, just at the meeting point of Sativa and Indica. This balance is also reflected in effect: a clear high in combination with an intense body buzz. The taste is woody, spicy and slightly sharp.
