5 Best Cannabis Strains to Grow In a Greenhouse (2024 UPDATE)
Growing your cannabis in the safety of a greenhouse is an excellent way of preventing common plant problems such as diseases and pests.
Using a greenhouse provides a controlled environment which your weed plants love. Moreover, after the initial set up costs, a greenhouse is an extremely economical and environmentally friendly way of maximizing the natural resources of light and heat.
Yet, some types of weed are definitely better suited for greenhouse life than others.
In this article we look at some of the best cannabis strains to grow in a greenhouse.
1. Blue Dream
Blue Dream is an excellent strain to grow in a greenhouse because it typically reaches its full potential there. This attractive hybrid marijuana plant has beautiful purple and violet hues.
It has a lemony, wood-smoke aroma and taste hints of citronella, cedar, berries, and Haze. Blue Dream provides a long-lasting, powerful high that promotes socialization.
Blue Dream thrives indoors with good lighting and nutrients. Outdoors it does well in warm, dry climates like the Mediterranean. It also grows well in a greenhouse in unreliable weather.
If considering seeds to grow in a greenhouse, Blue Dream is a top contender.
2. Gorilla Glue #4
Gorilla Glue #4 is a light green, sticky, hybrid strain with a sweet, sour aroma that varies between batches. When burned, it produces a very strong skunk perfume.
Gorilla Glue was bred for maximum THC content. The flavor can be bland compared to other strains. It provides an initial euphoric rush leading to mild relaxation for hours.
Gorilla Glue thrives in a greenhouse with increased yields. Use large pots to prevent root bind. Be careful not to overwater and precisely time nutrients at the right ratios.
3. White Widow
White Widow is a famous cannabis strain, popular in Amsterdam coffeeshops for its pine aroma and cerebral yet sensual high from 19%+ THC.
White Widow is tricky to grow, making a greenhouse ideal to precisely control temperature and humidity. Keep daytime temps above 21°C and nighttime above 15°C.
Start with high humidity for germination then gradually decrease to 30-40% for flowering. Opening windows and a hygrometer help maintain optimal levels.

4. Super Silver Haze
Super Silver Haze provides a relaxing body high rather than an energizing cerebral buzz. It has piney, fruity scents and flavors that induce a euphoric, creative, and appetite-boosting full-body high.
While relatively forgiving, Super Silver Haze still requires careful monitoring of environment and nutrients, making a greenhouse ideal. It thrives in warm, humid conditions from 70-80°F (21-27°C).
Those in the Northern Hemisphere can expect an October harvest.
5. Northern Lights
Northern Lights is a classic Indica popular in Dutch and North American dispensaries for its distinctive spicy, earthy, piney taste with fruity flavors.
It provides an uplifting yet deeply relaxing stone for a balanced, long-lasting high.
Northern Lights thrives easily in a greenhouse, delivering rapid growth and generous 800 gr/m2 yields in as little as 8 weeks. It's one of the simplest strains to cultivate.
