Big Big is a fantastic plant to grow indoors. You have to take into account her vigor. She can get pretty big. Think about 150 cm indoors.
As a grower you have to take into account the imitated indoor climate when growing Big Bud. Big Bud likes moderate to warm temperatures.
The Big Bud cannabis plant is 80% Indica dominant and has a short flowering time of 49 to 63 days during which time she will develop monstrously large buds. Her buds can get so big that branches will bend and even break. It may therefore be necessary to support the branches. This can also be done by using Scrog.
The weed produces a pleasant mix of physically relaxing effects with earthy aromas and a spicy taste in the mouth. The high is euphoric so expect delicious laughs.
The holistic relaxing effect on the body is extremely soothing without resulting in couch-lock. Big Bud is therefore perfect for those who like to smoke during the day, but still want to maintain a degree of creativity and functionality.

If we’re talking about a Sativa-dominant strain that can produce big yields when grown indoors, then it’s the Pure Power Plant!
The Pure Power Plant as we know it today was created from decades of selecting the original South African Sativas. This Sativa-dominant weed was introduced in 1997 and was an instant hit. She still is, by the way. In fact, almost every coffee shop in the Netherlands has her on the menu. Her genetics have always remained pure without hybridizing with other strains. She is therefore a strain that is capable of producing huge yields when grown indoors.
For a Sativa dominant strain, Pure Power Plant is quite easy to grow. She grows evenly and wonderfully consistent in height. Just as you would expect from a Sativa. Grown indoors under ideal conditions, the plant will reach about 1.5 meters in height and will yield up to 600 grams per m2.
Pure Power Plant’s Sativa dominance produces sweet and uplifting highs that the user is sure to notice. Euphoric feelings are evident and it is certainly possible to experience a personal epiphany where the amazingly delicious aromas and flavors complete the experience.

We continue with the Sativa strains. These strains deliver the highest yields when grown indoors.
At number 4 is the legendary Blue Dream. A fantastic Sativa-dominant hybrid that originated in California. That said, her exact origin is a bit of a mystery (as it is with many cannabis strains). What is known is her genetics. Namely, Blue Dream is a cross between the Blueberry and the Haze #1.
Blue Dream is the perfect strain for the novice grower. She has a high mold resistance and flowers for about 9 to 10 weeks. During her flowering she develops insanely large buds that yield up to 650 grams per m2 when grown indoors. This is just one of the reasons why Blue Dream is so incredibly popular.
However, this is not the only thing that has made this weed so popular. She gained her popularity mainly because of her unprecedented medicinal benefits. Indeed, the weed is highly effective in treating chronic pain, headaches and a range of mood disorders.
Looking at the quality of the weed, we can say that there is almost no cannabis strain that can match the quality of Blue Dream. Her THC range is usually around 19% and induces a creative, cerebral high. The effect begins with intoxication and blending intoxicating effects that put the whole body in a state of relaxation.

We conclude this top 5 best yielding cannabis strains for indoor growing with a legendary strain: Green Crack!
Green Crack as this weed is called today, used to be called Green Cush until hip hop legend Snoop Dogg sampled the weed and named it ‘Green Crack’. Since then, the weed has been wildly popular.
It is a Sativa-dominant strain created by crossing Afghani x 1989 SSSC Skunk #1. The plant is very suitable for indoor growing and also recommended for novice growers. She has a high resistance to mold and is forgiving.
Indoors, the plant has a flowering time of about 7 to 9 weeks and is capable of yielding up to 550 grams per m2 under ideal conditions.
Three years ago, “Rolling Stone” described the weed as one of the best cannabis strains of the year. Green Crack is a powerful weed with an average THC level of 18% that results in an uplifting buzz that energizes the mind, body and soul. Green Crack is therefore a strain that you prefer to smoke during the day. Unless you want to stay awake all night of course.
The weed has an earthy, musky aroma and tropical notes of mango and citrus and is often used to combat fatigue. However, it is also frequently used to treat depression.
