Compared to photoperiod strains, autoflowers have historically suffered from a reputation for being low potency. However, those days are gone.
The development of autoflowering varieties in 2020
Autoflowers have developed incredibly well in recent years. The latest generation of autoflowering weed seeds produce super potent plants, capable of producing amazing yields and are easy to grow. Especially the autoflowering varieties that appeared in 2020 so let’s list the best autoflowering strains from 2020 right away.
Top 5 – Best autoflowering strains 2020
- Gorilla Glue autoflower
- Zkittlez autoflower
- Girl Scout Cookies autoflower
- Blue Dream autoflower
- Critical Purple autoflower
Good news! In 2020, the legendary and incredibly potent Gorilla Glue autoflower was introduced at Weedseedsexpress.
Gorilla Glue Autoflower is a cross between Sour Dubb, Chocolate Diesel and Chem’s Sister. An unprecedentedly popular strain that owes its name to the abundance of sticky resin that sticks deliciously to your fingers and scissors during trimming and harvesting. She delivers a maximum of 26% THC which is an absolute record. Especially for an autoflowering strain.
Growing Gorilla Glue Auto
The autoflowering Gorilla Glue features small leaves, a short internode distance and a flowering time of about 56 to 70 days. It is a plant that is trouble-free to grow and perfect for any substrate or medium.
By the end of the flowering phase, she has developed massive buds that are extremely dense and resinous. The plant has then developed very generous yields, which, when grown indoors with lighting and in most ideal conditions, can provide 400 – 600 grams per square meter. This immediately places her among the best yielding autoflowering strains of 2020.
Outdoors, however, it gets even crazier. Here your harvest can reach as much as 800 grams per square meter. For this you need to grow the plant in the open ground and your plant will need more than enough sunlight.
However, we recommend growing in large pots of 40-50 liters. You can then, if necessary, move your plant indoors. This is useful, for example, when the weather outside is too bad.
Taste, smell and effect
With such a high THC content, it will come as no surprise to hear that Gorilla Glue Auto packs powerful punches. The high is very strong both physically and mentally which can feel increasingly powerful and cerebral over time.
The taste of Gorilla Glue Autoflower is predominantly herbal, with notes of pine, fruit and lemon. All with a lingering and intriguing diesel background.

The Zkittlez autoflower grows into a cheerful and robust plant. It is a plant that is very suitable for beginner growers and resistant to mold, pests and vermin.
