- Gorilla Glue auto

- CBD Purple Kush
- Pineapple Express
- Original Glue
- Durban Poison
- Girl Scout Cookies
- Blue Dream
- Ak-47 auto
The absolute number one and our absolute best strain in 2019 is our Gorilla Glue. Gorilla Glue is an inimitable Indica ideally suited for chronic pain complaints and other conditions. It is believed that Gorilla Glue is so-called because of the copious amounts of sticky resin produced by its buds during the growth phase, and the fact that this strain is as powerful as a gorilla.
Gorilla Glue gives an enormous high great for the evenings and weekends, as couch-lock can be a problem. However, you will also feel a lovely euphoria as well as the heavy body stone. High levels of THC – typically 28% but some phenotypes offer as much as 30% – and minimal CBD means notable success with medicinal users. In addition to its pain-relieving properties, this cannabis is also popular for relieving feelings of depression and helping you sleep better.
The cultivation process of Gorilla Glue takes about 9 to 10 weeks. The yield is modest but undoubtedly sufficient. 600 Watt lamps will give the best result indoors.

Bruce Banner’s burgundy leaves are juxtaposed with bright green stems and bright red pistils. The smell is spicy with citrus, but the taste is more earthy with hints of sweet diesel.
The effects of this Sativa are physical and powerful, giving way to an enjoyable mental relaxation.
This legendary green monster has a brutal THC content that is unsuitable for inexperienced consumers.
Its high yield and resin production make Bruce Banner an excellent choice for any type of crop.

Purple Kush CBD auto is a cross of 90% Indica with Purple Kush CBD Auto and Purple Afghan CBD Auto. This variety is pretty much the same strain as Pink Kush CBD Auto but with a CBD: THC ratio of 1: 1.
It has a physical impact that is both relaxing and very easy to manage, without experience-related paranoia or anxiety.
In just nine weeks from seed germination, you can have your own homemade medicine! The yields are high, and the buds of this variety have a very earthy and fruity taste in line with its Indica dominance. As an autoflower, cultivation is about as easy as it gets.

Pineapple Express has a lot to offer when you look closely at the growth characteristics and quality of the finished product. Everything starts with the diverse and tasty genetic heritage. Pineapple is an extremely fruity strain from Jamaica that has been crossed with California champion OG Kush.
Pineapple Express overflows with tropical fruitiness and brings sweet exotic aromas to the nose and palate. Flavours and potency benefit a lot from this legendary parent, “Ocean Grown” Kush. The THC level is about 19%, which allows the strong Indica effects to do their job. By smoking just a little during the day, joyful sensations will spread throughout the body. A delightful combination of mental and physical effects!
Pineapple Express grows with aggressive vigour and does not exceed heights of 100-130cm indoors. Having medium-sized plants like these is a good compromise between visibility and high yields. The flowering period is also concise; it usually takes 55 days for the buds to reach full maturity. When the cultivation parameters are adapted, indoor yields can reach up to 500-550g / m². Outdoor growers can also expect big crops: up to 450-500g / plant!

Original Glue (OG) features a complex flavour of pungent diesel and rich pine with hints of chocolate and coffee that shine through. The mixture of sweetness and earth goes well with a night-time snack, which is ideal since it is best suited for night use, and on days off when you just want to cool down and relax.
Just like the glistening resin that builds up on your scissors when you cut the stems, Original Glue sticks you on the couch while relaxation takes away all stress and leaves you with euphoric thoughts. OG’s high THC levels have led this strain to become universally loved.
However, this strain has the greatest reputation among those who have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). OG is notable for its strong cerebral effects and is often used for medical purposes by those who suffer from mental illnesses such as obsessive-compulsive disorder as well as anxiety and depression.
Although it is hybrid, OG can easily double in size during its pre-bloom “stretch” period and reach heights that exceed most hybrid strains. It is also noted to have a fast flowering time, and in just 7-9 weeks you can expect a buxom gem ready for harvest.

Durban Poison was introduced to Holland from South Africa and was crossed multiple times in the 1970s. During each generation, Durban Poison has always adapted to the windy and rainy conditions of northern Europe. During the initial vegetative phase, Durban has large Indica type leaves. Still, towards the end of the cycle, the dominant Sativa becomes evident, with long flowers and thin Sativa style leaves.
Durban Poison has a spicy, vague taste, with notes of anise, cloves and liquorice. The buds are usually dark green and resistant to mould and parasites. Very powerful and with a good yield, uniform.
Durban Poison is ready for harvest in 8-9 weeks in indoor crops. Outdoors, it can reach 2-3 metres in height and be harvested in early autumn. Its ample root space allows Durban to develop strong lateral branches loaded with heavy resinous inflorescences. The development of the plant, the appearance at harvest and the energizing and stimulating high are typical of Sativa

Girl Scout Cookies is still one of the greatest strains. Even in 2019! It’s a hybrid and the result of crossing the phenotypes “Thin Mint” and “Platinum Cookies”: one giving an effect typical of Sativas and the latter typical of Indicas. The fragrance is rich: sweet, earthy and minty at the same time, reminiscent of these cookies that we all know and love. Its bright green flowers with purplish hues and dark orange pistils will be ready to harvest after 9-10 weeks of flowering.
The Sativa element gives the mind a boost of euphoria and antidepressant effects, while the Indica component offers relaxation that alleviates bodily pains, nausea, and improves appetite.
Girl Scout Cookies can be successfully grown indoors and outdoors if the climate is mild and warm. This type of weed requires a Mediterranean type of climate, i.e. plenty of warmth and sun. We recommend using a hydroponics system indoors for improved yields.

You won’t be surprised to hear that Blue Dream comes from California because smoking Blue Dream immerses you in a dream of Cali in the 70s with Hendrix rumbling from the radio and the Beach Boy surfboards that adorn the roof of your classic Volkswagen. A Sativa-dominant hybrid, Blue Dream is rich in THC and popular with those taking medications for major stress, depression and pain.
Blue Dream delivers a sticky fluffy blueberry flavour thanks to its Blueberry Indica side, but its Sativa Haze # 1 side comes to the fore when it is in bloom. During this phase, it can easily double in size and reach a height of more than two metres. The two strains provide the perfect balance, so Blue Dream gives a high that is both relaxing and invigorating, without making you feel tired or anxious.
If you are looking to go from seed to harvest in a short period, Blue Dream is an excellent choice with its ability to double its size during the flowering phase. This means that you can cut the growing season short and still get a reasonably tall plant. In addition to this, its flowering period is speedy, and it can usually be harvested around 7-9 weeks. These are the seeds to buy if you want a massive and fast yield.

The auto-flowering variant of the AK-4 was created by crossing the AK with the strongest Ruderalis plant. It is ranked as one of the most popular auto-flowers of all time. Excellent resistance to fungi and other pests also allows the AK-47 auto to grow into a wonderful cannabis plant, even under the pale northern European sun.
This strain is known for its fast life cycle, and it is one of the most productive and uniform cannabis plants: bright green buds, red, amber hairs and a layer full of trichomes.
The taste can be described as sweet, floral, skunky and even a light citrus kick. The cannabis scent can be described as an earthy, pine-like scent with a sharp citrus hint. Euphoric, relaxed, creative – these are the terms that best describe the effect of the AK-47 auto-flower. The high has a notoriously fast impact – also known as the ‘one-hit-wonder’ effect.
Medicinal users generally love the AK 47 autoflower. It offers relief from chronic pain, increasing appetite and reducing nausea. Mentally, this strain is perfect as a weed, three puffs just before bedtime, and you’ll enjoy a very peaceful high that will make you sleep like a baby.
This cannabis strain is ideally suited for outdoor cultivation. The advantage is that a hot sun will not knock her out of the field; these cannabis seeds contain genetics that are highly resistant to heat. Also, it also has an incredibly strong resistance to fungi and other undesirable plant diseases, such as spider mites. Moulds are also much less likely to take hold with this strain.
