homegrown bud

This plant is medium sized, and if you’re planting in Spain you’ll need to plant around March/April so that it can develop a large amount of branches that you’ll need to wire later on so the branches can put up with the weight of the heavy buds. This plant loves sun light and is incredibly pleasing to smoke. It has a sweet flavor and once you exhale, that flavor will stick around in your mouth for quite a while. This plant is quite eye-catching to look at, with a mix of blue/purple tones, but its smell is even more interesting. It smells literally like bubble gum and candy, making you want to eat it right away, and that smell will soon translate into taste once it’s ready for harvest. We grew this baby from a clone and ever since then it’s been one of my favorite go-to strains. It’s the kind of cannabis that you have in your bag and people can smell it from meters away, giving you strange looks on the bus.

The best marijuana in the world is homegrown; no weed can be as satisfying as weed that you’ve grown yourself. Whenever you dedicate time and patience to your own plants, smoking them or consuming them in any other way is going to be much more satisfying than consuming any other cannabis that you can get your hands on. The best marijuana in the world is simply the one that you like the best; if you like feeling sleepy and relaxed, then the best strain in the world to you will be a nice strong and sedative Indica. If you’re a compulsive consumer and you want a strain for that every day grind, then the best strain in the world for you would be an energizing sativa.

This plant has an amazingly strong incensed and sweet taste. The fragrance coming from the flowers will absolutely flood your garden or grow room, and when you’re smoking it you’ll probably kick yourself for not having planted even more. This plant produces quite a lot of resin on its leaves, so using the trimmings to extract hash and whatnot is a major advantage this strain has. It also has a thick central bud, followed by multiple large branches; this plant really is quite large. If you decide to grow it using the SCRoG method, then the mesh will be full almost straight away due to how fast the branches grow. Its effect is mostly indica, and it’s perfect for going to sleep. It also takes fertilizing quite nicely, but it really doesn’t need much to develop correctly; fertilizing once a week is enough to get the most out of this plant. You won’t regret trying these seeds, even if they do take a bit longer to flower.

Today we’re going to give you a list of strains that we know and love, so maybe you can find a decent one here that you want to try out for yourself! Our personal favorites are:

This strain is extremely potent and a favorite among smokers. It has dense and strong smoke that will conquer the lungs of even the most experienced of smokers. It’s really not hard to grow, as this strain isn’t delicate in the least. It grows strong and large during the summer and it turns into an absolute monster around mid-October (this is referring to Spain), it will obviously need to be planted and begin flowering at different times in different places around the world. These plants will fill up with long and fat buds. It tastes like… well, weed. It has that typical cannabis flavor that can’t be explained any other way. It’s perfect for helping you sleep, as you’ll feel the effect after just a few drags. Once you harvest this baby you’ll have potent buds that are full of resin, capable of K.O-ing the most experienced smoker you know. The plant in the photo was planted a bit late to keep it smaller, but you can plant it earlier and it will grow even fatter with a longer fattening period.

This is almost every experienced grower’s favorite strain. I’m pretty sure almost everyone has planted this strain at least once, and if you haven’t then now’s your chance. These plants are strong and resistant to practically everything. You can harvest this bad boy outdoors around the end of September if you’re looking to get the most of it, although it can look ready much earlier than that. It grows out long side branches that grow upwards with the plant, making for a Christmas tree-looking kind of plant. This strain isn’t delicate at all and it can deal with a heavy diet, as it’s much harder to over-fertilize than other strains. If you’re looking for a plant for guerilla grows, for early harvesting or for a large production in a small place, then this is the seed for you. Its taste and aroma are truly unique and characteristic, so if you’ve never tried it, it can be a bit difficult to describe. This strain is also perfect for novice growers, as it really doesn’t need too much care and the seeds themselves are rather cheap.

These are the strains that we’ve loved the most over the years, and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t forget to leave a comment below!

Buds are not only smoother after curing, but they also feel more potent than before they were cured. Learn how to cure your cannabis like a professional.

Seeds start growing when buds get exposed to pollen (either from a male plant or a hermie) in the flowering stage. A few seeds don’t have much effect on potency, but a very seedy bud that’s been heavily pollinated often produces weak effects. Although the exact reason is unknown, it’s likely the plant simply puts more energy into making seeds than producing trichomes/cannabinoids.

5.) Buds Weren’t Cured for 2+ Weeks

Pipe <– Somewhat Efficient

During the process of making magic butter, canna caps, or oil, you extract all the good stuff from cannabis to produce an edible form of cannabis. These products are concentrated, and you can always increase the effects by eating more.

Vaping <– Most Efficient

Numerous indicators will signal when your cannabis is nearly ready to harvest. Each plant and strain is unique, so these signs can vary, but here are some general things to look for:

Figuring out when an autoflower plant is ready for harvest is a bit more tricky. They don’t always lose their leaves. Their trichomes change from clear to cloudy and amber, but not always as obvious or evenly. Yet some oddball strains never turn amber at all! It isn’t as easy to confidently say “Yep, you’re ready to go!” as you would with a regular plant, so you have to simply do your best to judge.

What are Trichomes?

You know all those shiny, sticky, wonderful-smelling crystals you can find all over your cannabis flowers? Those are trichomes. They play an important role in the plants natural defense mechanisms, and also contain the thing we’re all after here – cannabinoids.

You have probably seen that some people do vacuum/seal and even freeze their weed. We don’t find this necessary, or even preferable, Just how frozen and defrosted food doesn’t taste as good as fresh food, we’d rather keep the buds out – more fresh, and easy to monitor. We also aren’t huge fans of the idea of plastic touching the buds the whole time. On the other hand, if you are giving weed away, that is a different story. We do sometimes use plastic then. Either way, I don’t suggest fully vacuum sealing. Sucking all the air out of the package totally crushes the buds! If anything, use the seal feature only.
