2. Northern Lights
Northern Lights is a real classic strain, has won many prizes and can be grown in practically any climate.Therefore it’s a strain that you should have tried to grow outdoors. Even when it’s only just for one time.
A strain that can be bought in almost every Dutch coffee shop is the Power Plant. That isn’t without reason. The Power Plant features qualities that are important for commercial growers and is definitely one of the best outdoor strains. High yields, a short cycle, easy to grow and a very powerful high quality weed. Although many commercial growers grow indoors, the outdoor yields can exceed up to 750 grams per m2.
However, the cannabis plant is naturally an outdoor plant so each plant can be grown outdoors. Yet, not all species achieve good results when grown outdoors. That has to do with various causes. An important factor is in this is the degree of mold and moisture resistance. Moreover, not all species are suitable for the climate in which you want to grow. From this you can conclude that the success of an outdoor cultivation largely depends on the chosen weed seeds.
Outdoors you can’t influence all the living conditions. Yes, you can choose the soil and provide water, but you can’t influence the weather, while the weather is the most important factor for the final result. Growing outdoor marijuana plants is therefore generally more difficult compared to indoor growing.
White Widow is a name known all throughout the cannabis world—and for good reason. Since emerging from the Netherlands in the 1990s, this legendary lady has scooped up plenty of awards, becoming a firm favourite among smokers, growers, and breeders alike. Her sativa dominance and high THC level make for a satisfying high that raises the mood and eases aches and pains. Her colas are tall and tapered, and ooze a resin loaded with the terpenes limonene, myrcene, and caryophyllene.
White Widow’s abundant resin production makes her an ideal outdoor strain, especially for beginners. This viscous layer protects her—to some degree—against pests, fungal infection, and high temperatures. Although her yield isn’t the largest, her pleasant effects make up for the lack of volume. She’ll produce 300g/plant, ready to harvest during October.
HULKBERRY — ROYAL QUEEN SEEDS
Moby Dick requires a fairly spacious garden. She does well in large containers or when cultivated directly in the soil. She’ll provide a massive bounty of up to 1.5kg/plant after a flowering time of 65–70 days. Left untamed, she’ll ascend to a height of 3m.
Hulkberry is a go-to cultivar for outdoor growers seeking a mammoth yield. This strain was created by RQS breeders with a simple goal in mind: optimal returns. Their search for maximum output led them to cross OG Kush with Strawberry Diesel. Sure, the progeny of this pairing yields heavy, but she also offers a THC content of 27%. A small toke from this sativa-dominant beast will send a stimulating high charging through the nervous system. Handle with care!
CBD Therapy is the result of a rigorous breeding programme that sought to broaden the gap between THC and CBD concentrations. The strain set the standard for up-and-coming CBD varieties, and was one of the first in the world to reach a THC:CBD ratio of 1:20. This cultivar provides massive amounts of cannabidiol and doesn’t induce any psychotropic effects. The strain is effective when smoked, but can also be used to make high-potency CBD extracts.
Cannabinoid Content: 20-25% THC
Ideal Climate: Temperate / Continental
5. Afghani Hindu Kush
A perennial favorite among cannabis growers, Northern Lights is a mixture of Afghani and Thai landrace cultivars. Rumor has it that Northern Lights was first grown on the US West Coast before heading to the Netherlands to be developed by Sensi Seeds. Since its release in 1985, Northern Lights has won more awards than any other cannabis strain. Fast-flowering Northern Lights is a hardy plant with high resistance to “bud rot,” which can be a huge problem with dense indica flowers. Northern Lights is an enduring favorite of the medical cannabis community for helping with symptoms of anxiety, depression, pain and PTSD.

Ideal Climate: Temperate / Continental
