White Diesel

Strength

White Diesel marijuana seeds

White Diesel has an average of 20% to 22% THC, which might seem to suggest this strain is intended for use in the day time. The fact that it also has a whole 1% CBD means that White Diesel is typically recommended for use at night. Although White Diesel does indeed deliver the classic Sativa, it also has enough CBD to make you feel deeply relaxed and ready for sleep. In other words, White Diesel is a great strain to choose if you want something which can both lift you out of pain and soothe you into tranquility and rest.

Yield

White Diesel marijuana seeds produce reasonable yields, in line with what you would expect from the parentage. Indoors you could collect up to 400g/m2. Outdoors, you could harvest as much as 500g of bud.

Speed

White Diesel marijuana seeds

White Diesel will grow happily indoors or outdoors in a warm, dry and sunny climate. Indoors it needs 8 to 9 weeks of flowering time and outdoors it will be ready to harvest around the middle of October. The good news for indoor and greenhouse growers, is that even though it’s 60% Sativa, White Diesel actually turns into fairly compact plant. While this strain’s growing range is between 1.2M (indoor minimum) and 1.8M (outdoor maximum), it tends to grow to about 1.5M regardless of whether it is grown indoors or outdoors.

We’ve classed White Diesel as a moderately difficult grow purely because it’s a photoperiod strain. Which means that indoor growers will need to manage light cycles. White Diesel is very straightforward to grow thanks to its hugely robust genetics. Both White Widow and NYC Diesel were bred from landrace strains, which makes up it’s strong resistance.

White Diesel isn’t likely to need all that much in the way of food and water. As it doesn’t grow particularly big. What it does need is enough space to stretch upwards and outwards without bumping into its neighbours. The only serious mistake you can make with White Diesel marijuana seeds is planting them too close together. This is just asking for mould. Give your seeds more space and air flow. This should be enough to protect your precious bud.

The only other possible issue to note is that of odour control. Diesel is a scent which divides opinion and even if you love it, you may find it gets to be too much of a good thing in a small growing space. Outdoors, you really need to think about the way the wind usually blows if you want to stay on good terms with your neighbours.

Taste

When it comes to taste, White Diesel is a strain you either really love or really don’t. The clue is in the name, this is a diesel strain and if you’ve read this far, presumably you’re fine with that. In addition to the diesel, there’s skunk pungenc, the sweetness of wood and the citrus freshness of lemon. Interestingly, the base notes of the aroma are much more skunk than diesel. The wood element also largely disappears although the citrus notes remain.

Bag Appeal

White Widow has long been admired for its good looks, as well as its good effects and White Diesel takes after its mother in that regard. In other words, what you’ll probably notice first is the sheer quantity of sparkling white trichomes coating the green nugs. All that THC makes these nugs seriously sticky!

Auto Mandarin Haze

Citrus scents are often used to trigger feelings of positivity and to raise energy levels. So, it makes complete sense that marijuana seeds, which combine citrus scents with THC will be a popular choice. Especially for people who need help to deal with issues such as fatigue and anxiety.

Strength

Auto Mandarin Haze marijuana seeds

Although Auto Mandarin Haze contains about 65% Sativa genetics, the THC level is a medium-high 19%. That is certainly enough for some meaningful pain relief as well as an uplifting high. The Indica genetics (about 15%) together with the Ruderalis genetics (about 20%), combine to make the high a bit more mellow than you would expect. But overall the experience is very refreshing, upbeat and energizing. The Indica/Ruderalis genetics also contribute a moderate level of CBD, which means that your high will be followed by a light stone. This will make you feel very relaxed and comfortable, but will stop well short of knocking you out for hours on end. Auto Mandarin Haze can be an excellent choice for people who want a strain which can be used both during the day and at night.

Citrus scents are often used to trigger feelings of positivity and to raise energy levels. So, it makes complete sense that marijuana seeds, which combine citrus scents with THC will be a popular choice. Especially for people who need help to deal with issues such as fatigue and anxiety.

Yield

Indoor growers could collect up to 100g/m2 and outdoor growers could harvest up to 200g. This may not sound like much, especially not from a Sativa dominant. However. remember that most sativa dominants grow to a significant height. Which is one of the reasons they can be such a challenge to grow indoors. Auto Mandarin Haze, by contrast, typically grows to about a metre in height. We’ve even heard of plants stopping at 80 CM without any human intervention. Even outdoors, they’re unlikely to grow higher than 1.2M.

Speed

Auto Mandarin Haze marijuana seeds

Once you have planted your Auto Mandarin Haze marijuana seeds, you will only be waiting 7 weeks for your harvest. That’s not 7 weeks of flowering, that’s 7 weeks all in. In fact, you can grow your Auto Mandarin Haze even faster by using a hydroponic set-up. To which this strain adapts very well, although some people believe this reduces the flavour.

As this is an autoflowering strain, there is no designated harvest period. The fact that you need 7 weeks of warm, dry and sunny weather will determine when you can realistically grow this strain outdoors. If you can get the warmth and light but can’t guarantee the dryness, then greenhouse growing may be the way to go. Alternatively, you can grow this strain indoors at any time without the hassle of managing light cycles.

Auto Mandarin Haze is easy to grow by any standards, quite stunningly so when you remember that it’s a Sativa dominant. It’s completely free of all the usual challenges of growing Sativa dominants. As they are usually huge plants with appetites to match their size. Instead all you really need to do is pay attention to your marijuana basics. You should be fine even if you’re a complete beginner, or just too short on time to pamper demanding plants.

Taste

Although this strain is called Auto Mandarin Haze, it might be more accurate to call it Auto Citrus Haze. The mandarin is there but so are other citrus flavours such as lemon. Which makes sense given that the original Mandarin Haze is descended from Lemon Haze. With Haze in the name, you would also expect a certain spicy pepperiness and you’d be right. The aroma reflects the taste and could easily pass for a boutique scented candle.

Bag Appeal

Auto Mandarin Haze does look very appealing in the bag, with its bright green nugs and orange leaves set off by sparkling white trichomes. It also smells delicious, especially as you break open the nugs. For all that, don’t be in too much of a rush to bag it and tag it. All strains need to be cured and Auto Mandarin Haze benefits from proper curing more than most strains as this will really bring out the delicate complexities of its flavour.

Auto Cheese NL Marijuana

Auto Cheese NL

Auto Cheese NL marijuana seeds are always in popular demand.

Strength

Auto Cheese NL marijuana seeds

From a genetic perspective, Auto Cheese NL marijuana seeds are about 50% Indica, 30% Sativa and 20% Ruderalis. The parent strains are Auto Cheese and Auto Northern Lights. This means that the 16% average THC content should be in line with expectations. It’s enough to deliver quickly and effective pain relief, together with a moderate high.

The ratio of Indica and Sativa genetics means that the high is a bit more mellow than you’d expect from a pure Sativa, but there’s enough in the way of Sativa genetics to keep it fresh and light. Auto Cheese NL has moderate CBD so the stone is deep enough to relax your mind and body, while still being light enough to make it feasible to use this strain in the day time. Auto Cheese NL seeds are, therefore, frequently recommended to people looking for a strain to use on an “as and when” basis rather than a specific day time or night time treatment.

Yield

Indoor growers can expect up to 110g/m2 and outdoor growers could collect up to 220g from each of their Auto Cheese NL marijuana seeds. While this may not seem much in comparison with photoperiod strains, or even some automatics, the fact is that strains with bigger yields need to be physically bigger to have space for the buds, whereas Auto Cheese NL comes in at a diminutive 1M to 1.2M, which makes it much easier to grow these plants in smaller growing spaces.

Speed

Auto Cheese NL marijuana seeds

Small plants also tend to have short growing times. Auto Cheese NL marijuana seeds are no exception and will be ready for harvest in just 9 to 10 weeks. Which about 6.5 to 7 weeks flowering time. As this is an autoflowering strain, there is no harvest period as such, you just need ten weeks of warm, sunny dry weather. If this is too much to hope for where you live, then using a cold frame or greenhouse could be a good compromise. Since it would allow you to benefit from the (free) sunlight, while keeping your plants protected from the rain. Or alternatively grow indoors where you’ll have completel control over your environment.

Overall, however, even a complete beginner should have an excellent chance of growing their Auto Cheese NL marijuana seeds into healthy plants. There are two main reasons for this. One is that this strain is packed full of robust genetics. The parents on both sides are very close to being landrace strains and hence don’t expect to be able to rely on humans. The second is that the shortness of the growing period means that there’s very little time for anything to go wrong.

The only issue which might trip up new growers is dealing with complaints from people who object to the smell of this strain. You can avoid this by practising considerate odour control. In particular, if you are growing outdoors, be sure you understand prevailing winds as they can blow the scent of Auto Cheese NL over a very long distance.

Taste

The clue is in the name, Auto Cheese NL does indeed taste like a fine, pungent old cheese. The Northern Lights side of the strain does, however, also make its presence felt in the form of robust earthiness and light, fresh notes of menthol pine and citrus lemon. Similar comments apply to the aroma, it’s very definitely cheese but it’s not totally, full-on cheese as it’s balanced by the earthy sweetness of Northern Lights, you might also detect a hint of spiciness due to the Afghani heritage on the Northern Lights side.

Bag Appeal

Auto Cheese NL looks pretty good in a bag, with its dense green nugs, orange hairs and, of course, the glorious covering of glittering white trichomes you’d expect from any strain with Northern Lights heritage. The real joy, however, comes when you open the bag and breathe in that cheese.

Mexican Sativa

Strength

Mexican Sativa marijuana seeds

With 70% Sativa genetics Mexican Sativa has about 16% to 18% THC with minimal CBD. This is enough pain relief for many conditions, such as tension headaches and to deal with milder cases of mental conditions such as anxiety since it produces a clean, joyous and energising head high, which lifts you up without blowing you away. Although Mexican Sativa is typically recommended to people looking for a strain to use in the day time, the average person could probably use this strain at night and still reasonably expect to be able to get to sleep afterwards.

Yield

Mexican Sativa marijuana seeds produce reasonable yields. Indoors you can expect up to 400g/m2 and outdoors you could harvest as much as 550g/m2.

Speed

Indoors Mexican Sativa marijuana seeds will need 8 to 10 weeks of flowering and outdoors it will be ready to harvest around early to mid-October. When considering whether or not Mexican Sativa is the right choice for you, be aware that this strain can grow huge. Indoors you should allow for at least 2M and outdoors this strain can easily reach 3.5M. That’s vertical height, you also need to think about outward growth. This is really important because plants getting tangled up with each other leads to poor air flow, which reduces ventilation and basically extends an open invitation to the dreaded mould. Which would be particularly ironic, since this strain has really robust genetics and is therefore generally pretty resilient to mould, diseases and pests.

Mexican Sativa marijuana seeds

We’ve classed Mexican Sativa as a moderately difficult grow mainly because the only people who are likely to be able to leave it largely to its own devices outdoors will be people who live in the Mediterranean basin, which means that everyone else will not only have to manage light cycles, but will probably have to undertake at least some level of plant training to keep Mexican Sativa to a reasonable size for indoor grow spaces. This is not particularly difficult, especially if you’ve some experience pruning regular garden plants. Even if you don’t there’s plenty of advice online, both in the form of “how-to” articles and videos and on forums, but it is something extra to manage as compared to other strains.

If you’re prepared to tackle a steeper learning curve than with some other strains, then you do stand a decent chance of collecting a reasonable harvest. egardless of your level of experience or whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors, you will have to take steps to manage odour. Indoors, you should have air filters in place by the middle of the flowering period at the latest. Outdoors, resist any temptation to assume that because this strain has an odour which resembles freshly-cut grass, your neighbours are unlikely to object to it. Remember that people only mow their lawns periodically and the smell tends to disappear quite quickly, this is definitely not the case with Mexican Sativa, where the smell will be ever-present and will get stronger and stronger over the course of the flowering period.

Taste

Mexican Sativa marijuana seeds

Mexican Sativa has a very unusual flavour and aroma, which is mainly fresh-cut grass, enhanced with spices. There are clear notes of both aniseed and sandalwood.

Bag Appeal

Mexican Sativa has the sort of classic good looks you expect from old-school Sativas. There are bright green nugs sprinkled with pretty orange pistils and dusted with frosty, white trichomes. The moderate THC level means that you might be able to break up these nugs with your fingers if you really needed to, but we’d still recommend a grinder.

gelato-feminized-marijuana-seeds

Gelato

Strength

Gelato marijuana seeds

With 18 to 25% THC, Gelato can relieve serious pain quickly and also delivers a high which is a crisp, clean and refreshing as its name suggests. You don’t have to keep it for summer though, in fact this strain is a great choice if you need some help to deal with the winter blues. Even though Gelato marijuana seeds actually contain 55% Indica genetics, Gelato only has about 0.1% CBD, which means that after your high, what you experience is less of a stone and more of a warm, snuggly cuddle, after which you are quite ready to get on with your day. This makes Gelato a popular buy for people who need a “wake and bake” strain. It also has the reputation for dealing quickly and effectively with tension headaches.

Yield

Gelato marijuana seeds produce solid yields. Indoors you can collect up to 600g/m2 and outdoors you could harvest up to 800g from each of your Gelato plants.

Speed

Gelato can be grown indoors and outdoors, if you live in a Mediterranean climate. Indoors they will need 8 to 10 weeks of flowering and outdoors you will be harvesting about the end of September. If you want to grow Gelato fully outdoors, then you will need to live in a climate which is warm, sunny and, crucially, dry, like the Mediterranean basin. If you live towards the northern end of continental Europe, you might want to look at greenhouse growing and if you live further north than that, then it’s usually best to grow Gelato indoors.

Gelato marijuana seeds

This strain grows within a height range of about 1.2M (indoor minimum) to about 1.8M (outdoor maximum), basically it’s tall for an Indica and short for a Sativa, which is essentially what you’d expect from the 55/45 genetic balance. While it leans more to Indica bushiness that to Sativa lankiness, it is a bit branchier than the average Indica, which has a couple of advantages. First of all, it means that it’s easier for light to reach all parts of the plant and secondly, it means that Gelato is an excellent candidate for plant training to reduce its height and/or increase its yield. Sea-of-green and screen-of-green set-ups are both great way to maximize the yields from this strain and it adapts very well to either, in fact overall, flexibility and adaptability are key characteristics of this strain.

We’ve ranked this strain as being moderately difficult to grow partly because of the fact that it’s a photoperiod strain, meaning that if you’re growing indoors, you’re going to need to be prepared to manage light cycles. But also partly because it does grow to be on the taller side when compared to many modern strains. We’d therefore say that if you were a complete beginner to marijuana and you had limited experience of gardening in general, then you might find it easier to start with a smaller automatic. On the other hand, if you’ve set your heart on growing Gelato, then it should be perfectly feasible for you to do so, even as your first marijuana grow. This strain is both stable and robust, with lots of well-respected genetics behind it. Keep on top of your marijuana basics (especially ventilation and odour control) and you should be absolutely fine.

Taste

If you were hoping that the name Gelato would reflect the fact that this strain has a lovely, ice-cream flavour, then you’ll be happy to hear that you were absolutely on the right lines. The base is off sweet wood and on top of that there’s lavender, berries and citrus. The aroma is also sweet although the base seems more earthy than woody and the berry and citrus elements of the taste, focus into clear notes of blueberry and orange.

Bag Appeal

It doesn’t just taste good and do you good, it looks good too. Gelato’s buds are purple and sprinkled with bright orange hairs. Plus with this sort of THC, you get a liberal coating of sparkling white trichomes which glitter in the light.
