Gorilla Glue Auto, “the California monster” became very famous in a few years thanks to its impressive strength and generous yields. The large amounts of resin, and the resulting high THC content, attract both experts and amateurs in the field.
Gorilla Glue Auto is the result of crossing a third-generation autoflowering clone with a clone of Gorilla Glue # 4. The result is a medium-sized and easy-to-grow plant, highly recommended for beginners because it does not need special care and thrives when grown outside.

Gorilla Glue Auto is a pleasure to smoke with complex flavours that give bursts of sweet flavour, a taste of natural pine, and even a hint of fruit.

Northern Light x Big Bud Auto is the right choice for you if you are seeking powerful and productive autoflowering genetics that defy the stereotype of the tasteless dwarf automatic plant. Northern Lights x Big Bud auto has a dominant central top and produces a very generous harvest.
Outdoors, with reasonable care, a fully formed seedling and a favourable climate, you can harvest up to 60 g dry resinous buds per plant in just 55 days since the seed germinated. The Northern Light x Big Bud Auto offers excellent resistance to epidemics of fungi such as powdery mildew and botrytis. However, we recommend that you provide it with a quality fungicidal preventive treatment, just to be on the safe side.
Northern Light x Big Bud Auto has a citric, sweet flavour that will remind you of oranges with delicious earthy notes. Its effect is mostly Indica and very relaxing. It is a great strain for those who use cannabis as an alternative medicine to combat insomnia or lack of appetite. It will also have a THC level higher than the average of other autoflowering varieties. This strain made such an impression on its release that it won the Canarias Cannabis Cup 2013 (Copa Natura Verde).

Amnesia Haze x Blueberry autoflower is one of the most exotic varieties around and is quite hard to source, although it is available at weedseedsexpress.com. It is a hybrid and the result of a crossing between parents Amnesia Haze and Blueberry. Ruderalis genetics were added to make the plant autoflowering.
As this auto has genetics that are 40% Indica and 40% Sativa, the effects are exceptionally well-balanced; a cerebral high that makes users happy, talkative and giggle is followed by a state of deep relaxation and well-being.
Amnesia Haze x Blueberry auto thrives outdoors with minimal care, although you should take care not to overwater it. It prefers a slightly arid Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunshine. Grown outside, it takes about 70 to 77 days to be harvest-ready, which is longer than average for an autoflower. The slightly longer time is worth it though, as the yields are impressive. If the plants grow to 125 and 150 cm, yields can be as high as 250 g per m2, which is significantly higher than when this strain is grown indoors.
