lowryder weed seeds

Regrettably, the vast majority of breeding projects were abandoned early, and the autoflowering trait was ruthlessly weeded out. Huge mistake! Back then, it seemed like the right move. Indica-sativa crosses were the focus, and nobody had the time to figure out the secret to unlocking the autoflowering trait from otherwise undesirable “ditch weed”.

Today’s autoflowering hybrids rival the finest photoperiod varieties. Once upon a time, ruderalis was regarded as ropey, substandard sinsemilla. Then, along came Lowryder, which changed the game forever. This is the true story of the ruderalis hybrid that made autoflowering cannabis awesome.

Northern Lights #2 was commonly known as “Closet Queen” during the 1980s, and until the end of the decade, was a pillar of pioneering Dutch seedbanks. Today, this prized breeding stock has been lost somewhere in time. “The Indian” is weeping. The plant was even more compact than the Northern Lights we know today, and therefore favoured by early indoor growers. This short and dank phenotype was crossed with virtually everything during the ‘80s to create faster-flowering, more potent hybrids for indoor cultivation. Northern Lights #2 played a big role in moving cannabis cultivation indoors.

LOWRYDER’S DANK DESCENDANTS

Gifted to the Joint Doctor by a dreadlocked Mexican pal, the “Mexican Ruddy” is still an unsolved cannabis mystery. Eventually, this enigma will be unravelled as we already have the technology. Unfortunately, the genome mapping of cannabis hasn’t even begun. All we can say for sure about this cannabis curiosity is that this is where the autoflowering trait comes from. Some say it’s a cross of Mexican sativa and Siberian ruderalis engineered at the University of Mississippi in the early 1970s. Another version claims it’s the product of the University of Ottawa cannabis research. And we have a few more far-out myths to share a little later. For now, let’s settle on the fact that it’s definitely ruderalis of some sort, and the seeds came from a Mexican dude.

William’s Wonder is a refined blend of old-school Afghan genetics, reputedly developed by legendary breeder Sam the Skunkman and Sacred Seeds during the 1970s. Ironically first appearing in the ‘87/’88 Super Sativa Seed Club catalogue, her heavy-indica charms found favour amongst the cult of indoor cannabis cultivators. William’s Wonder or Willy’s Wonder was the magic ingredient that turned a mediocre photoperiod mix of NL#2 and Mexican Ruddy into the fully automatic Lowryder. The F1 NL#2 x MR offspring still carried the dominant photoperiod trait. Only the triple-threat Lowryder is 100% Autoflowering.

FINOLA is autoflowering industrial hemp from Finland with negligible THC levels. Crazy as it seems, this variety has been suggested as the possible secret identity of Mexican Ruddy or a usurper. It’s true that quite a few seedbanks have dabbled with industrial hemp autos, but with limited success. For starters, the resulting progeny are not uniformly autoflowering; often, up to 50% will not inherit the trait.

The first Lowryder seeds became widely available around 2003. It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years, but that’s a long time in 21st century cannabis breeding. Lowryder has evolved and changed with the times. In fact, two of our own star auto strains share Lowryder genetics. Both Diesel Automatic and Quick One are dank descendants of Lowryder.

Thanks to its genetic history, this strain grows extremely fast. From seed to harvest, it can take as little as 8 to 9 weeks and the flowering time lasts for about 6 of those weeks. Even more, like the OG Lowryder strain, the Lowryer 2 doesn’t need a specific light schedule to flower. It can handle the flowering all on its own, without the assistance of a light cycle. During its growth, the aroma of skunk can get quite strong. If you decide to grow this strain indoors, think about adding some odor-eliminating measures to reduce the smell. When growing outdoors you can get two harvests because of its speed. The first harvest is around the end of June or early July, then the second harvest is early to mid-September. Yields can get pretty high for such a short plant, reaching 300 grams per M2 or 125 to 130 grams per outdoor plant.

Lowryder 2 is a fantastic strain for beginner growers who want a low maintenance plant and have limited space in which to grow it. It can take as little as 50 days to flower indoors, making this plant one of the fastest auto strain varieties to mature. Given the compact structure of the strain and the average heights of 60 to 80 cm (100 cm at the tallest), you have the freedom to grow her in almost any small space. Finally, the yields are great for having a short stature, and the effects are medical-grade worthy.

Feminized Type

Because Lowryder 2 is a classic auto-flowering strain, its ruderalis genetics provide a worthwhile CBD potency. The levels of CBD, a highly-therapeutic cannabinoid, perfectly compliments the THC content of 10 to 14% and helps to sustain its effects. Therefore, you may find yourself smoking this strain with less frequency because the effects can stay with you for hours. Medical users love this plant for its ability to relieve pain and ease joint discomfort. People with ADD and ADHD also find it very useful. Overall, this is a happy, relaxing, and deeply therapeutic strain meant to take slowly if you’re a novice cannabis smoker.

Compared to the Lowryder 1, the upgraded version, known as Lowryder 2 has larger and denser buds, plus the aroma it gives off is much more prominent. The stalks produce wide leaves that are dark green. The buds themselves can become a deep violet color with orange hairs, adorn many white trichomes, and give you sticky fingers with its volume of resin.

We require users to be 21 years old or over, please confirm your age.

Lowryder is still one of the fastest growing strains on the market and just never dissapoints.

Lowryder is probably the most known auto-flower variety around today. Auto-flower is a type of plant that will flower almost straight after germination, with very little to none veg required. Though it may not be the best smoke out there, there isn’t much else which delivers as quickly and in such a small plant.

Lowryder (Vision Seeds) feminized

Lowryder
Super Pflanze und ehrlich gesagt muss man keinen großen Topf verwenden. Hab einen 1.5l Topf verwendet und meine Dame ist staatliche 70cm groß geworden, das ist weit über der Standard Größe. 5 Sterne

Schlechte Keimrate
Nur einer von drei Samen hat nach über zwei Wochen gekeimt. Würde die Samen nicht weiter empfehlen.

Lowryder by Vision Seeds is one of the fastest growing plants available with a total life cycle of 8 weeks from seed to harvest. As the name suggest this is an extremely small plant growing up to 50cm tall, making this a perfect choice for those discrete grow operations. After 9 generations of selection, lowryder is stable and reliable with no hermaphrodite traits. Using an experimental Mexican Ruderalis, Williams Wonder and Northern Lights #2, Lowryder combines over 25 years of breeding.
