best weed seeds to grow for beginners

Its indica-dominant genetics means it usually grows short and stout, but it still gets solid yields and has dense buds. You’ll want to be sure to prune and top Wedding Cake to get rid of some of its foliage, for fear of it developing mold. This frosty strain is covered in trichomes and will be a sticky one in your garden, but its sweet citrusy smells with hints of vanilla make it a pleasure to grow.

A relative newcomer to the strain world, Wedding Cake is a Cookies cross that launched a whole new family of cake strains, such as Ice Cream Cake, LA Kush Cake, Cake Batter, and so much more.

Another relatively new strain, GMO Cookies will smell like nothing you’ve ever grown before—its nickname is “Garlic Cookies.” Crossing two classic strains, GSC and Chemdog, GMO has dense, sticky, light green buds with orange hairs and is a high yielder. Its trichome levels make it a good one for pressing your own hash.

Super Lemon Haze

This strain can handle many climates, both indoors and outdoors, but it can take a long time to flower—more like nine or ten weeks. Regardless, GMO Cookies is a new standard that packs a punch and brings some great savory scents to your garden.

This cross of legendary Super Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk will definitely bring some lemon scents to your garden. Super Lemon Haze has some strong sativa in its genetics, so it likes slightly warmer climates with a little more humidity, but it is still versatile and can thrive in most places.

Sour OG is a great strain for beginners looking to grow something a little different. This OG Kush and Sour Diesel cross has a complex mix of scents—skunk, spice, and of course fuel, with some hints of pine and lemon.

This is a strong, sturdy plant that doesn’t need much attention, but be sure to give it plenty of space to stretch out—it grows tall, like parent Lemon Skunk. Scrogging always helps, but you’ll likely get solid yields even without it. SLH usually takes a little longer to flower, around nine weeks, another sign of its sativa roots, so you may need to be a little patient when waiting to harvest this one.

Before dropping a seed into some soil, we recommend giving some thought to what kind of strain you want to grow. Consider how much space you have available, how much money you’re willing to spend, what kind of high and flavours you enjoy when you smoke, and your local weather patterns and climate.

Beginner growers often don’t want to invest large amounts of money into a new hobby. If this applies to you, we advise purchasing cheaper seeds. This means less pressure to produce a perfect outcome, making for a more pleasant and casual growing experience. Oh, and “cheap seeds” doesn’t equate to bad genetics. Many cheaper varieties offer superb yields of high-quality flowers.

Special Queen 1

If you’re just setting foot on your cannabis growing journey, starting off with easy genetics will really help you along the way. You’ll still need to take good care of your plants, but hardy, beginner-friendly strains are much more forgiving and easier to cultivate.

Clocking in at €4.50 for a single seed, Special Queen 1 offers a fantastic return on investment. She descends from a mix of genetics from Mexico, Colombia, and beyond, and provides a long-lasting high that targets the body and the mind. With a THC content of 18% and an average yield of 550g/m², Special Queen offers substantial bang for your buck.

Auto-flowering plants have some unique qualities:

On the flip side, a photoperiod plant gives you as much time as you need to dial in your grow and make mistakes because it won’t start making buds until you “tell” it to. That gives you time to conduct experiments and/or really see what a plant can do!

Although they’re generally hardy, in some ways auto-flowering strains can be tough for a beginner because they don’t leave a lot of time for mistakes. If you mess up in the first 3-6 weeks, you can sometimes end up with a tiny plant and small yields at harvest and unfortunately there’s really nothing you can do about it at that point.
