1. Northern Lights
Northern Lights is a pure indica strain known for its dense, resinous buds that give off an earthy aroma of pine and lemon. This strain provides a strong high that starts with a happy head buzz before melting into a full-body relaxation.
Northern Lights is an excellent sleep aid, easing users into a meditative, dreamlike state while eliminating pain, anxiety, and stress. Unlike some modern strains with high THC levels, Northern Lights delivers a peaceful, mellow high without paranoia that lasts for hours.
Our Northern Lights Auto seeds offer a faster, stealthier crop while retaining the iconic effects of this classic indica.
2. Purple Kush
Purple Kush is a resilient strain that resists fungus, making it suitable for novice growers. While it thrives in sunlight, it can tolerate cooler climates. Adequate light is key for outdoor cultivation.
Though best known as an indoor strain, with proper care outdoors, Purple Kush can yield up to 2 pounds per plant.
Afghani originates from the Hindu Kush mountains, making it naturally resilient to cold and mold. This hardy strain thrives outdoors, growing into huge plants up to 8 feet tall and yielding over 1 pound per plant.
For faster, stealthier harvests outdoors, Autoflower Afghani is recommended. This strain retains the robustness of Afghani while reaching maturity quickly.
4. Hindu Kush
Hindu Kush is a hardy, rugged strain that thrives outdoors in natural soil. Its resilience makes it suitable for beginner growers.
This short, squat plant reaches around 5 feet tall outside but produces plentiful yields up to 1.5 pounds per plant in ideal conditions.
Autoflower Hindu Kush finishes faster and enhances stealth while retaining the robustness of the original Hindu Kush genetics.
5. Bubba Kush
Bubba Kush is an ideal strain for beginner outdoor growers due to its compact Indica structure and resilience. This short plant reaches 3-6 feet tall outside yet can yield up to 2 pounds per plant.
Bubba Kush withstands diverse outdoor conditions while producing plentiful harvests. Dropping temperatures during the final flowering stage turns its leaves a striking blend of deep green and purple.
For faster finish times and enhanced discretion outdoors, Autoflower Bubba Kush is recommended.
6. Granddaddy Purple
Granddaddy Purple excels in indoor environments, favoring 50% humidity and controlled conditions, similar to its Big Bud parent. Suitable for all growers, it boasts strong mold resistance and a compact, bushy growth, reaching 2-3 feet.
Properly managed, it yields up to 500 grams per square meter at harvest.
Our Granddaddy Purple Auto variant offers quicker, more discreet growth without sacrificing quality.
7. Blackberry Kush
Blackberry Kush is rewarding for all growers, with natural mold resistance but a need to watch for fungi and spider mites. Pruning and low-stress training boost its health and yield by improving light and air exposure.
Ideal humidity levels start at 55-60% during growth, reduce to 40% in flowering, and drop to 30% nearing harvest.
The Autoflower Blackberrry Kush variant offers a quicker, more discreet growing cycle.
