Cannabis Growing Climate in Hawaii

Which type of strains grow well in Hawaii?

Hawaii has a tropical climate, so the best cannabis strains for growing there are tropical Sativas. These strains can handle the warm and humid conditions of the islands.

Look for strains that originated from similar environments, like Thai, Jamaican, or Hawaiian varieties. They'll grow tall and produce buds that often have fruity and sweet flavors. Stick to these, and you should have good results in Hawaii.
