CBD Crack Auto

Strength

CBD Crack Auto cannabis

As previously mentioned CBD Crack Auto is mostly about the CBD. There’s only 7% THC, which is still enough to make your day a bit brighter and give you a certain level of fast-acting pain relief. CBD Crack Auto is for people with conditions which benefit from the 7% CBD it also offers, making that much-prized 1:1 “golden ratio”. CBD Crack Auto is ideal for many medical conditions. Although the key emotional benefit of this strain is relaxation, the THC does bring a touch of lightness and euphoria. This makes the overall effect one of mellow chillness, rather than one of being smothered in mental fog, however, pleasant. You’ll probably remain moderately functional. Although, you’ll want to avoid doing anything requiring proper concentration and alertness. Physically, this strain is excellent for spasmodic conditions such as epilepsy.

Yield

It must be said that CBD Crack Auto isn’t known for its huge yields. Experienced growers expect up to 250g/m2 indoors or 250g per plant outdoors. Beginners should probably expect about half of that. As you may have guessed already, part of the reason for this is the fact this strain is on the compact side. Regardless of whether you grow it indoors or outdoors, these plants are highly unlikely to get any taller than 1M. In fact, 70cm is much more usual. Remember to allow for vertical spread when deciding how many plants you can fit into your growing space.

The other reason why CBD Crack Auto only produces limited harvests is because it’s ready in a total of about 11 weeks. Of which around 9 to 10 weeks is actual flowering. If you’re planning on flushing your plants, you should aim to do so at around the 8 to 9-week point. As this is an autoflowering strain, there is no harvest period as such. You will simply need to apply common sense when thinking about when you can grow this strain outdoors. Remember that, like most marijuana strains, CBD Crack Auto distinctly prefers life in the warm and dry and out of the wind. With an 11-week total growing time, even growers in northern Europe should be able to fit one harvest into an average summer. Although those in the furthermost north will need to pick their growing locations with particular care.

Another point to remember is that this strain begins to develop a strong odour from about the 8th week of growth. We therefore would advise you to have air filters in place indoors or to have your plants sited with consideration for your neighbours outdoors. One of the advantages of this strain is that it is so compact it’s easy to grow it in tubs, even outdoors. This means that you could feasibly start it off in a location which is convenient to you.

Overall, this strain is very robust and vigorous and has great resistance to mould, diseases and pests. Presumably courtesy of those hardy Skunk #1 genetics in its background. It’s very beginner-friendly and the quality of the harvest should please the more experienced.

Taste

Parent strain Green Crack was based on Skunk #1 and you can pick up a note of skunk pungency in CBD Crack Auto. It is, however, mild and balanced by the sweet robustness of cinnamon and a dash of citrus. Similar comments apply to the aroma. If skunk really isn’t your thing, you could try using this strain in the form of cannabis edibles and/or cannabis topicals.

Bag Appeal

It must be admitted that you grow CBD Crack Auto for its medical benefits rather than for its looks. This strain is what we’d call “averagely pretty” rather than stunning. You get glossy green leaves, cheerful orange hairs and a sprinkling of glittering trichomes. If you’re lucky, you may get touches of purple on the buds.

CBD lemon potion auto marijuana strain

CBD Lemon Potion

This potion may not be a cure for all ills, but it’s certainly a great treatment for several medical conditions.

Strength

CBD Lemon Potion auto

CBD Lemon Potion has 7% THC, which is enough to make you feel an uplift to your mood without coming anywhere near a high. It’s also enough for some light but fast and welcome pain relief. Barney’s Farm decided to tip the scales on what is often considered the medical “golden ratio” and has gone for 2:1 CBD:THC. This means that the CBD level is about 15%. While this may make it sound like CBD Lemon Potion won’t so much leave you couch locked as couch anchored, this strain is only just Indica dominant (60/40). So, while it’s certainly mentally and physically relaxing, it’s much lighter than you may have thought. In fact, some people find that it not only makes them feel happier but also more creative, in the way you’d expect from Sativas.

Yield

All in all, CBD Lemon Potion offers a decent yield. Indoor growers can expect up to 400g/m2 and outdoor growers about 400g per plant. While this may not sound like a great deal you need to remember that CBD Lemon Potion is not only autoflowering, it is also very short. Plants are unlikely to grow taller than a metre, 80cm to 90cm is more usual. This obviously limits the space for buds to grow, but it also makes for a quick grow time and fast medicine!

Speed

CBD Lemon Potion marijuana seeds

Speaking of quick grow times, CBD Lemon Potion will be ready in just ten weeks from seed. As this is an autoflowering strain, there is no specific harvest period as such. Your outdoor growing period will be determined by your local climate. This strain really benefits from a warm, sunny and dry climate so outside of the Mediterranean area. Once you get to the further north of Europe, growing under glass may be your best option, or just treating this as an indoor strain.

This is a nice, easy strain and great for beginners. Any strain based on Kush tends to have robust genetics and this strain is indeed nicely resilient against mould, diseases and pests. The only key point to remember here is that you need to allow enough space for your plants to spread outwards as well as upwards, without compromising on good air flow.

As these plants are so small, they don’t need much in the way of either nutrients or physical support. If you really want to push your harvest up to the maximum, you can try defoliation and/or low stress training. This allows your plants get the full benefit of the available light, but even if you don’t, you can still look forward to a very decent harvest.

As this is an autoflowering strain, you don’t have to worry about managing light cycles. In other words, if you have limited growing experience and/or time, then this strain could be a great choice for you.

Taste

CBD Lemon Potion tastes very similar to its popular parent, Lemon Kush. You get that lovely rich, spicy base counterbalanced by the freshness of lemon. This taste is mirrored in the aroma.

Bag Appeal

The fact that CBD Lemon Potion is so low in THC means that you don’t get all that much in the way of glittering, gleaming trichomes. But you do get bright green leaves and vivid orange pistils. When you do start to grind up these beauties, you’ll release all that lovely spicy lemon fragrance.

Quick Kush marijuana seeds by Dianfem

Quick Kush

Strength

Quick Kush cannabis

Quick Kush is very definitely an Indica dominant (75/25), it still offers 18% to 25% THC. More than enough to provide fast and effective pain relief for a wide range of medical conditions. It’s also enough to pull you out of some very negative emotional places. At the same time, however, the Indica genetics help to keep it all mellow and calm. Rather than buzzing with energy. You’ll certainly feel the positivity and creativity. But instead of feeling the sort of caffeinated head rush you get from Sativas, you’ll feel happily relaxed. After the initial head buzz has ebbed away, you’ll drift smoothly into the warmth and coziness of an Indica body stone. With an average of 0.1% CBD, Quick Kush is soothing without being overpowering.

Yield

True autoflowering strains often produce rather smaller yields than their photoperiod counterparts, but Quick Kush still offers the prospect of up to 500g/m2 indoors. Or up to 1Kg per plant outdoors. If this sounds like a significant difference, the reason is that Quick Kush has a growing range of about 1 metre to about 3 metres. Indoors it will tend to grow at the lower end of this range, with about 1 metre to 1.5 metres in height. If there’s space outdoors, it will happily stretch all the way up to 3 metres, hence it has physical space for a lot of bud.

Speed

Quick Kush marijuana seeds

The “quick” in Quick Kush means that instead of the 8 to 9 weeks of flowering you’d need for traditional OG Kush, you’re looking at 7 to 8 weeks of flowering time. If you really can’t wait, you can usually trim another week off this by growing in a hydroponics set up. Alternatively, if you’re growing outdoors then you’ll be collecting your harvest around the latter part of September, rather than in the early part of October. In some climates, that can make a significant difference.

Outdoor growers should note that this strain really does best in a warm, dry and sunny climate such as the Mediterranean basin. If you’re in the more northern part of Europe and you want to grow outdoors, then you really want to make sure that you site your plants somewhere they’ll have shelter from the occasional cold days and heavy downpours. You’ll also want to ensure that you think about prevailing winds, at least during the latter part of the flowering period. As this strain also has the traditional OG Kush scent.

Not only does this strain have great resistance to mould, diseases and pests, it also has a very moderate appetite. In fact, possibly your biggest challenge with this strain is to avoid the temptation to overfeed it. Particularly during the stretch period when these plants can really grow. We’d certainly put this strain down as very beginner-friendly. We’d also rate it as a great choice for anyone who’s just short on time and/or energy and so wants maximum return for minimal effort.

Taste

The good news here is that Quick Kush tastes identical to OG Kush. It has the same base of earthiness and oil, the same sweet wood body and the same top notes of lemon and pine. It also has the same aroma, with earthy pungency balanced by sweet herbs and spices.

Bag Appeal

Quick Kush looks just like the original OG Kush, in that it has bright green buds with vivid orange hairs and lots of gleaming white trichomes.

cream cookies auto marijuana seeds

Cream Cookies

Strength

Cream Cookies cannabis

Cream Cookies is high in THC. We know that the original GSC had up to 28% THC and that the Fast Buds GSC Auto version had 22% THC. So we’d anticipate that this variation on it would have around 20% to 22% THC. Fast Buds has also indicated that Cream Cookies has low CBD. After one or two tokes, the user will feel upbeat and euphoric. Then will gradually transition into the classic Indica body buzz without being couch locked. If you smoke or vape any more than this, then the Indica genetics will start to make themselves felt rather more and can leave you feeling sleepy. Regardless of when you smoke it, you can expect to have your appetite stimulated, so be ready!

Yield

Cream Cookies has a large yield. We’d suspect that Fast Buds are basing their “XL” statement on what is possible with this strain in the hands of experienced growers. Who have the skills and time to coax the best out of their plant,s with nutrients and such training as autoflowering strains will allow. Having said that, when you’re looking at a strain which is autoflowering, short and quick, we’d say even 100g/m2 or 100g per plant was still a pretty decent result.

Speed

Cream Cookies marijuana seeds

Cream Cookies has a total growing time of about 11 weeks, seed to bud, of which about 9 weeks is actual flowering time. This strain will grow perfectly happily indoors or outdoors and as it is autoflowering. There is no specific harvest time as such, you just need warm, dry weather. This strain is really adaptable in terms of your choice of growing medium and light set up. So, in principle, you could bring in your harvest even more quickly if you went for a hydro grow. But we suspect that most people will settle for more standard options, such as plain soil.

Remember that although Cream Cookies doesn’t do much growing upwards, growing between 60cm to 90cm. Cream Cookies certainly likes to grow outwards and can get very bushy. If you want to maximize your yields, you could try your hand at defoliation and low stress training, to give your plants maximum exposure to the available light.

Overall, this strain is very robust, resilient to mould, diseases and pests and generally beginner-friendly. It is surprisingly greedy so if you want to get the best out of it, then you’re going to need to give it plenty of nutrients. Be ready to flush those nutrients out before harvesting. If you can manage this, you may well get those “XL” harvests, but even if you can’t you should still get a moderate yield.

Taste

While Cream Cookies may be simple to grow, it’s flavour is as rich and complex as that of its famous ancestor. There are base notes of skunk, wood and earth, which combine seamlessly rather than fighting for dominance. Some people think the base notes are like a very high quality, rich, creamy coffee. Top notes are of herbs and citrus. The aroma could pass for a very exotic coffee, one blended with herbs and lemon peel.

Bag Appeal

Cream Cookies is one pretty strain, especially if you flush it before harvesting. This can do a great job of highlighting the red, yellow and/or purple colours splashed around the green leaves and buds. You also get orange pistils for a real sunshine effect. Last but by no means least, with so much THC, you’d expect plenty of trichomes for glitter and shine and indeed you’d be right.

Skywalker OG Feminized Marijuana By Nirvana Seeds

Skywalker OG

Strength

Skywalker OG cannabis

We know that the original Skywalker has about 15% THC and OG Kush has around 19% to 24% THC. So we’d say Skywalker OG has around 18% to 20% THC. Likewise, we’d say there’s around 1% CBD. Like the force, this strain has a light side. What many people really love about this strain is that it acts like a Sativa on the mind and an Indica on the body. In other words, you do get the high you expect from this sort of level of THC. Instead of being pulled down completely into an Indica stone, your mind stays alert and reasonably functional and your body is completely relaxed.

Yield

Indoor growers could look to collect up to 600g/m2 in a sea-of-green set-up, otherwise up to 500g/m2 would be a reasonable expectation. Outdoor growers could look at as much as 1Kg of bud from each of their Skywalker OG plants. This difference can be accounted for by the fact that Skywalker OG has a growing range like that of OG Kush. Which is between about 1 metre and about 3 metres, with plants grown indoors on the lower end of the range. Typically,plants with plenty of space outdoors make the most of it and stretch as far as they can. These plants can stay deceptively small for the first part of their growth cycle. Then they really shoot up during flowering.

Speed

Skywalker OG marijuana seeds

Skywalker OG is a fast strain. Indoors it will be ready after just 8 to 9 weeks of flowering and outdoors you’ll be collecting your harvest around the end of September. Outdoor growers not only have to ensure their plants will get sufficient light, but also sufficient protection against any spells of bad weather. This strain is probably a bit big for the average balcony. But a sheltered wall would probably be a good option. You will also want to think about odour control. Indoors this means air filters are highly recommended. Outdoors, you will need to think about prevailing winds. This strain has a distinct touch of fuel in its aroma and your neighbours may not take kindly to having it blown straight in their direction.

There are only two key points to remember when growing this strain. The first is that these plants really will do their best to reach for the skies during the latter part of the growth cycle. You also need to remember that this strain is very much Indica dominant (85/15), so it will also spread itself outwards as well as upwards. It is vital to allow for this and to avoid the temptation to overfill your growing space (even outdoors). Since this will reduce ventilation and increase the likelihood of an attack of the dreaded mould. Which would be very ironic since this strain has excellent resistance to mould, diseases and pests. Courtesy of all the landrace genetics in its immediate background.

The second is to remember that landrace strains are used to fending for themselves. So they don’t usually need a lot of extra nutrients, so be careful not to overfeed your plants.

Taste

Skywalker OG it’s very similar to OG Kush with an oily, diesel base, balanced by the sweetness of citrus and menthol pine. Similar comments apply to the aroma, which might be stronger than you expect.

Bag Appeal

Skywalker OG looks good enough to be accepted into more respectable places than Mos Eisley spaceport. You get dense and chunky green nugs, brighten up by orange pistils and shiney, (space) crystal trichomes.
