The best marijuana seeds and strains for outdoor growing

By: Daniel C. Grow

Although cannabis is an extremely hardy plant that can grow in many different climates, there’s no doubt that some marijuana strains are better suited to outdoor cultivation than others. With the arrival of spring and the start of the outdoor season, here are some tips on the perfect varieties for growing outdoors.

Spring has arrived, awakening in many the urge to grow some cannabis in the open air, be it in a patio, balcony, or garden. If you’re one of those people, you’re definitely on the right track, as outdoor cultivation can provide you with multiple benefits.

Don’t underestimate the therapeutic power of gardening. Many people find that saying goodbye to winter by going outdoors, rolling their sleeves up, and getting their hands dirty whilst looking after their cannabis plants can be a truly relaxing experience. Besides, there’s nothing more satisfying than enjoying the marijuana that you’ve grown yourself in your very own garden.

Advantages of growing outdoors

Thanks to the power of nature, there’s no need to spend a lot of money. All you need at the beginning is some good soil, nutrients, seeds, and possibly a small greenhouse. Remember that wind, rain, and sun are all free!

When growing outdoors, sky’s the limit. You can let your plants grow as high as you wish, as long as they’re manageable, so you’ll only need a bunch of seeds if your grow is for personal use.

Nonetheless, a growing environment in the open air also presents some unique challenges, such as temperature fluctuation, the chance of torrential rains, and a higher risk of suffering pest attacks and diseases. In addition, not all strains adapt to specific climates in the same way.

Therefore, it is essential to choose the cannabis strains that are better suited to outdoor growing, so that all your efforts aren’t in vain when it comes to harvest time.

How to choose marijuana seeds for outdoors

To a large extent, the choice of strain depends on the environmental conditions of the area where you live. In humid areas with short summers, it’s best to choose varieties with a quick flowering time, which minimises the risk of fungi when the first autumn rains arrive.

If you live in a region where the warm weather only lasts between 2 and 3 months, then the autoflowering varieties are definitely your best bet. As these strains have a very short life cycle and don’t depend on the photoperiod, they are ideal for areas with short outdoor seasons.

If, on the contrary, your grow is in an area with a warm or Mediterranean climate, then you’re in luck! This type of environment meets all the ideal conditions to grow practically any type of strain.

The selection process is essential

However, you can’t assume that a specific marijuana strain will grow well outdoors no matter what. The best outdoor marijuana seeds are produced only after many years of hard work. This often involves reproducing the specimens selectively in the open air for a very long period of time.

The perfect outdoor cannabis strains are also selected to be resistant to mould, amongst other threats. The ideal outdoor strain needs to be hardy, robust, and capable of facing the worst case scenarios that nature can throw at it. Once again, these qualities are not accidental but the result of many years of thorough genetic selection and hard work, which is also our work philosophy at Kannabia Seeds.

So here’s our list of four of our best marijuana varieties to grow outdoors, that have been selected with regards to their ability to reward you for all your hard efforts.

The best autoflowering seeds for outdoors

There’s no better way to start than with this cross between the potent Amnesia Haze and the speedy Amnesia Auto. This strain was created to prove that a sativa-dominant seed can also be grown outdoors in autoflowering format; with a shortened life cycle of 70-90 days; and with adapted genetics so that it can also deliver an impressive yield outdoors (hence its XL surname). When provided with plenty of sunlight, this beauty can develop into plants that easily exceed 1.2 metres in height and yield up to 300 grams of fantastic sativa quality. Amnesia Dream XL Auto Edition will surely captivate you with its old-school Haze aroma with touches of incense, flowers, and wood, which is combined with a deliciously citric and earthy flavour.

Our automatic version of the renowned Gorilla Glue is one of the new additions to our catalogue for this season. Gorilla King Auto is definitely an option that lovers of North American flavours should consider. This strain doesn’t require much maintenance and is characterised by an outstanding yield both in terms of flowers and resin. A fabulous option for all kinds of growers whose full life cycle takes around 75 days, resulting in stunning bushy plants that develop strong branching and big buds, with an aroma and flavour surprisingly similar to the original Gorilla Glue’s… really intense, with sweet and earthy tones blended with fresh hues.

The best feminised seeds for outdoors

If you’re growing cannabis outdoors, you should keep ZKIT Kandy Dream Edition in mind. This is a hardy indica-leaning strain that has many outstanding benefits up its sleeve. The perfect combination of the great Dutch star Somango and the North American icon Zkittlez. A really vigorous plant that’s versatile and easy to grow, so it can easily adapt to different environments. A true all-rounder that will reward you with massive amounts of weed and whose flavour is the closest thing to tasting a fruity sweet. Besides, its high THC content produces a comforting effect that leads to a state of mental happiness that is very much needed in these turbulent times.

And we finish with another new addition to Kannabia’s catalogue for this season. This certainly is a true candidate for best outdoor strain of the year. Born from the cross of Hellfire OG and White Widow, this plant is adaptable, robust, and easy to grow, which makes it a suitable option for both expert and rookie growers. With a short but productive flowering period (of only 50 days), you could think this is an autoflowering, but its height of over two metres and its yield of up to 700 grams per plant quickly erase that idea from your mind. You’ll be rewarded with compact and resinous buds that ooze a strong lemony scent derived from its complex terpene profile. This is undoubtedly a perfect example of how an outdoor cannabis plant needs to be to guarantee success this season.
