Diesel Berry

Candy Kush

In their never-ending journey to create the most powerful and inimitable autoflowering strains around, Auto Seeds have put together some seriously impressive genetic mixes. One such wonder is Diesel Berry Auto, the outstanding result of breeding Berry Ryder with the multiple award winning NYC Diesel.

This indica/sativa/ruderalis hybrid certainly lives up to expectations, with its parent strains passing on their strength, potency and incredible flavour to offer a complex smoking experience of the highest quality. Combine these factors, which are almost unprecedented for an autoflowerer, with its ease of growth and you have a strain that is perfect for newcomers and seasoned growers alike. Best of all, Diesel Berry Auto is one quick strain that won’t keep you waiting all summer for your fun.

Strength

Diesel Berry Auto

Diesel Berry Auto offers some very balanced yet nuanced effects when smoked, utilising its indica and heavy sativa genes well. This is not to say the effects are mild, however, with Diesel Berry Auto packing plenty of THC into each bud.

The resulting effect begins with a strong head rush that settles into an intense cerebral buzz thanks to its sativa element. As you become accustomed to this the deep indica body buzz takes hold, lulling you into an all-consuming stone that will see you attached to the couch for hours.

These effects, along with the high CBD levels, also make Diesel Berry Auto ideal for medicinal use. Physically, the strain can treat everything from muscle cramps to chronic pain, while more mental afflictions such as anxiety, depression, stress, and insomnia can also be alleviated.

Yield

Due to the height of the plant and density of the buds, this charming strain can produce up to 350g/12.3oz per m2 when grown indoors. Generous for an autoflowerer, Diesel Berry Auto makes sure you get plenty of its good stuff. Outdoors it will do better, but prefers those warm latitudes with higher levels of sunlight.

Speed

Diesel Berry Auto

Diesel Berry Auto is not a difficult strain to cultivate, being a satisfying and low-stress growing experience for both novices and experienced growers alike. It can be grown either indoors or outside, with both being practical options depending on your circumstances.

Growing Diesel Berry Auto indoors will see the plant reach 70-90cm if left untrained, making it a bit bigger than some autoflowering strains thanks to its pronounced sativa component. Despite its relatively small size, however, its bud density means you still get healthy sized yields that will be ready around 65 to 75 days from seed to keep you satisfied. The plant reacts well to indoor growth, especially when the Screen of Green (SCRoG) method is utilised and a 20/4 lighting schedule is maintained to maximise yields.

Outdoor growing is slightly different as the strain experiences a growth spurt, reaching 70-120cm if exposed to a good amount of sunshine. Despite the outdoor increase in height, Diesel Berry Auto is still a fairly diminutive plant and therefore may be suitable for secretive growing outside. While it can handle a range of climates just fine, it does best when it is exposed to plenty of sunlight thanks again to its sativa heritage, and really shows its best side when grown in sunny warm places.

Taking the same 65 to 75 days from seed to flowering when cultivated outside, harvest time is between May and October. A careful grower who plants after the last frost may even be able to get more than one harvest over the coming warmer months, though the best yields are obtained by planting at the start of June to make the most of the light.

Overall though these are still easy plants to grow and see flourishing, rewarding you with tasty and potent harvests with minimal fuss thanks to the numerous bud sites along their bushy structure.

Taste

Diesel Berry Auto

Diesel Berry Auto is truly the offspring of its two parent strains, packing all the exotic fruity sweetness of Berry Ryder alongside the inimitable spicy fuel-like tang of NYC Diesel. The mixture of pungent fuel notes and sharp fruitiness is an unusual combination and is one that works well, offering something for the cannabis connoisseurs out there. This makes Diesel Berry Auto one seriously impressive taste experience that takes the best of both worlds to create its own unique flavour.

Bag Appeal

As mentioned before, Diesel Berry Auto sports some impressive density in its elongated buds, making them thick and solid to the touch. The outsides of these are heavily coated in crystals which hint at the weighty THC content within. Carrying an aromatic fragrance that matches the refined complex taste within, Diesel Berry Auto impresses from the very start.

In yet another landmark achievement for Auto Seeds, the seed bank have again created the kind of strain that seems to offer it all while providing something unique and exciting. From the ease of growth to the taste to the fantastic smoke, Diesel Berry Auto is one strain that should not be missed.

sucker-punch-by-auto-seeds

Sucker Punch

Candy Kush

Naming a strain ‘Sucker Punch Auto’ is setting the bar high from the start, while simultaneously opening the floodgates for all manner of easy puns concerning its strength. Clearly Auto Seeds knew what they were doing, confidently slapping the name on it in the knowledge their strain had the power to back it up.

Sucker Punch Auto more than passes the test, however, offering a level of THC-fuelled bliss that can only come from the truly strong. The strain is a genetic miracle and yet another feather in the cap of Auto Seeds. It was made by crossing Candy Kush with a cut of Bubba Kush taken before 1998. The result is Sucker Punch Auto, an autoflowering indica-heavy gem that is the prodigious offspring of two of the finest kush strains in existence. A knockout strain indeed.

Strength

Sucker Punch Auto

The first clue behind the name given to Sucker Punch Auto is the brute force of its THC content. Measuring over 20% in many cases, Sucker Punch Auto does not play lightly. Being an indica dominant strain the effect is a largely physical experience, almost narcotic in its strength. Much of this potency comes from the Candy Kush in its heritage, packing the kind of THC content into Sucker Punch Auto that is rarely seen in either an indica or autoflowering strain.

The description so far almost makes Sucker Punch Auto sound like a masochist-only affair, but the reality is that its colossal strength is put to good use, fuelling the most pleasant and controlled, if intense, highs around. It is not incapacitating either, allowing you to enjoy the uplifting mood it conjures and the deep relaxation that comes from the physical stone. The result is a sensation of refreshment and positivity, ideal for use either recreationally or medicinally.

Its more medical uses largely stem from the deep tranquillity it provides that can help with a range of ailments. Those who suffer from anxiety, stress or insomnia may find the strong relaxation available via Sucker Punch Auto to be just what they need to improve their quality of life. It can also be used to provide pain relief to get you through those tough times, making Sucker Punch Auto a versatile strain despite its wrecking-ball strength.

Yield

Sucker Punch Auto

Getting a surplus of those chunky gargantuan strength nugs may not be as difficult as you’d imagine, with Sucker Punch Auto providing plenty of its goods per harvest. Subject to adequate growing conditions, Sucker Punch Auto can yield a respectable sized 350g per m2. It may not be as high as some other strains, but with the strength Sucker Punch Auto packs you will find that each gram counts.

Speed

Sucker Punch Auto is a very forgiving plant, growing and thriving easily even for less experienced growers. Paying attention to it will, however, see you rewarded with bigger yields and bigger taste.

Taking only 65-70 days to harvest and growing to a short 45-85cm (though ideal conditions outdoors may see it shoot to 100-125cm), Sucker Punch Auto will nicely fit into a range of growing operations discreetly whether they be indoors or outdoors. Indoors growers can use soil or a hydroponic setup, though the strain is so compact it may even fit in a single pot to grow in a sunny spot outside somewhere too. It can withstand a fair range of temperatures though it is keen on getting enough sunshine to thrive.

This is due to the numerous stems and side branches of the plant that can result in heavy bud production all over should they receive enough light. Its autoflowering nature also makes it very low maintenance, which means it is ideal for inexperienced growers or those unable to spare much time to tending the plant.

Taste

Sucker Punch Auto

There is a real mix of flavours going on with the strain, making Sucker Punch Auto an interesting and pleasant taste experience to complement its knockout effects. The key flavours are the kush that dominates its genetics and a thick fresh earthiness upon which the other notes lie. This earthiness is mixed with bits of diesel fuel and the spiciness of the rich kush. Despite this it also carries a distinct sweetness, and after some time with Sucker Punch Auto you will start to recognise the complexities in its smoke.

Bag Appeal

As soon as you open the bag you will experience the first blast Sucker Punch Auto has to give. This is one pungent strain, proving irresistible to those drawn to that kush aroma. Much like the taste, the smell exhibits a strong earthy scent along with notes of diesel and spiciness. This is even stronger when the bud is properly cured, making it irresistible from the start.

Nugs are frosty and dense, combining with the scent to provide a tantalising glimpse of the good times ahead. So if you think you’re up to a challenge then Sucker Punch Auto will test your tolerance levels and give you a fantastic smoking experience in the process.

Ultra Lemon Haze

Candy Kush

The lineage of Ultra Lemon Haze Auto reads like a list of top-quality genes, all cross bred one after another to create the fabulous specimen in question. It started with the Cannabis Cup winning Lemon Haze being crossed with a carefully selected north Californian Sour Diesel. The resulting strain was then mixed with one of Auto Seeds’ famed strains, Auto #1, to imbue the new plant with autoflowering properties.

What emerged from all this was a superior specimen, both stable and unique, that was duly named Ultra Lemon Haze Auto. Carrying the kind of winning genetics that are rarely seen, Ultra Lemon Haze Auto is the kind of strain that is sure to climb its way into the hearts of weed connoisseurs across the world.

Strength

Ultra Lemon Haze

Ultra Lemon Haze Auto is a sativa dominant hybrid that offers the kind of high that truly values quality over quantity. That is not to say the strain lacks strength, with its 15%+ THC content powering an intense heady experience, but rather that it is the subtleties and overall complexity of the high that makes it so spectacular. Those looking for another Haze may be surprised, with Ultra Lemon Haze Auto offering a rather different smoking experience.

The primarily cerebral high of the strain is both dreamlike and psychedelic, giving an otherworldly quality that few others capture. The initial sensation is euphoric, creative and almost energetic, before giving way to a more contemplative side that remains very upbeat.

What follows at the peak of the effect is the indica Sour Diesel side of the plant that makes itself known, enveloping you in a deep physical sedation that can take you through the night. Together the two make for a balanced and complex effect that is of remarkable quality for any strain, let alone an autoflowerer.
Medicinal uses for the strain include insomnia, migraines and depression, as well as anxiety and general pain relief.

Yield

Those who develop a taste for the uniquely enchanting high of Ultra Lemon Haze Auto will not be disappointed in the size of its yields whether it is grown indoors or outdoors. Despite being an autoflowering strain the genes of the plant do not let it down, offering harvests of reasonable size that are rarely experienced in those with ruderalis genetics.

These harvest sizes can be maximised, along with their THC content, by growers doing their homework and cultivating the plant carefully.

Speed

Ultra Lemon Haze Auto

Ultra Lemon Haze Auto is not over-demanding but will require a little more attention than some of the more low maintenance strains out there. It is very sativa dominant, and the low portion of ruderalis genes in its make-up mean Ultra Lemon Haze Auto is no normal autoflowering strain. For those growers with a little more experience that feel ready for the challenge, however, Ultra Lemon Haze Auto will take around 80-100 days from seed to harvest and shall reward you richly.

Indoor growth will see the plant remain small, reaching only 60-70cm. It will require plenty of management to reveal the potential the plant is capable of, with the best photoperiod for Ultra Lemon Haze Auto being 12-16 hours. It is also advisable to switch from feeding the plant vegetative nutrients to flowering nutrients around weeks five or six, which will increase the chances of the plant giving you the harvest size you deserve.
If grown outdoors it is recommended that Ultra Lemon Haze Auto be planted between early March and early July. It will grow to a greater height than with indoor cultivation, reaching 80-100cm under optimal conditions. It is recommended that the plant be allowed around three months of flowering to see the best results.

As demanding as it may sometimes be, many growers feel the extra effort is worth it and are willing to put in this effort time and time again for their rich reward.

Taste

Just like the high, Ultra Lemon Haze Auto offers a flavour that is complex and unique. The primary taste is sharp and fruity in nature, akin to lemons and pink grapefruit with a strong pine element to it. Sitting beneath this is a fuel-like flavour that comes from its Sour Diesel parent, making this multi-faceted citrus blast one to savour.

Bag Appeal

Ultra Lemon Haze Auto

Ultra Lemon Haze Auto shows its distinctiveness straight from the bag, with its elongated buds demonstrating its sativa dominant heritage. These nugs carry a satisfying denseness and a rich odour that is considerably stronger than most other strains.

Much like the taste, the scent of Ultra Lemon Haze Auto is citrusy while possessing the distinct scent you find in a strong sativa. Adding some welcome complexity is the Sour Diesel heritage coming through to add those satisfyingly thick petrol notes to the mix.

This is certainly not your typical strain, so take the plunge and find out why this is quickly becoming the smoke of choice for many across the globe.

Berry Ryder

Candy Kush

Mixing a top quality Blueberry with Auto #1, Auto Seeds created a fantastic genetic mix that they named ‘Berry Ryder Auto’. The intention was to create a strain that retained all the sweet fruity goodness that made the original Blueberry such a hit, combined with genetics that would allow the new plant to have autoflowering properties.

The result is a high yielding, resinous, autoflowering strain with a berry flavour that is as rich as it is irresistible. Fans of the original Cannabis Cup winning Blueberry will not be disappointed by Berry Ryder Auto, with many considering the strain to be a faithful autoflowering version of the beloved original. Don’t let its ruderalis genes fool you though – Berry Ryder Auto easily stands toe to toe with non-autoflowering strains in flavour, yield and TCH levels.

Strength

Berry Ryder Auto

Sporting a mix of indica and sativa parts alongside its ruderalis genetics, Berry Ryder Auto offers a sophisticated and pleasant high that is versatile enough to suit just about everybody. It packs a moderate to high THC level, strong enough to satisfy seasoned smokers yet without the immobility-inducing punch that comes with certain other strains.

This is a primarily indica-based high-quality stone thanks to its Blueberry parent. This means a thick full-body buzz that will send you into a deep state of relaxation and can be enjoyed alone just as much as with friends. It is also accompanied by a spacy mental high that compliments the bodily effects well and creates an overall feeling of tranquil satisfaction.

Unsurprisingly these qualities also make it a useful medicinal strain. It has been used to treat conditions as diverse and severe as epilepsy, MS, arthritis and even Parkinson’s Disease, making Berry Ryder Auto as functional as it is enjoyable.

Yield

Proving incorrect the reputation autoflowering strains have for being poor yielders, Berry Ryder Auto rewards careful cultivation with a generosity uncharacteristic of strains with a touch of ruderalis in them.

Thanks to its powerful Blueberry genetics, Berry Ryder Auto can yield as much as 400g per m2. While there may be higher yielding strains out there, Berry Ryder Auto is no slouch and it more than makes up for it in quality bud and ease of growth.

Speed

berry Ryder Auto

Berry Ryder Auto does not make you work too hard for its delicious harvest. It is known to be an easy grower, never demanding much attention to reach its potential and flowering in a short 60-65 days from seed.

Indoor growers will see the strain responding well to a hydroponic setup, generally staying at the shorter end of their 30-70cm growth potential which makes them easily concealed if necessary. Its squat shape and thick leathery leaves have a robustness to them which makes it ideal for a beginner to grow too.
Outdoor growing will generally see the strain reach closer to its upper height range of 70cm. It can brave cooler temperatures fairly well within reason, and the chill night air may even be a boon to some as it tends to turn the leaves of Berry Ryder Auto a beautiful shade of blue. Luckily the strain is generally ready for harvest before the weather gets too bad, meaning it is fairly easy to bring its colours out.

Its small size also works to its advantage outside where it can be fairly easily concealed among the foliage. This diminutive stature belies the sizeable yields Berry Ryder Auto is capable of, however, boasting a high flower to leaf ratio and dense structure.

Taste

With a Blueberry parent and ‘Berry’ in the title, it will come as little surprise to many that Berry Ryder Auto carries an enchanting fruity, sweet and rich central berry flavour. This comes from its Blueberry heritage, a strain famed for its exquisite taste that has won it the admiration of cannabis connoisseurs around the world.

Bag Appeal

Berry Ryder Auto

Berry Ryder Auto impresses on all fronts and the first impressions it gives straight from the bag are no different. The buds are dense and round, offering the kind of weightiness that makes for a truly satisfying tactile experience as you roll the resinous nugs around your fingers.

The scent too is a wonderful aspect of the Berry Ryder Auto smoking experience. Capturing much of what makes the taste so delicious, straight from the bag you can smell the irresistible fruity notes those familiar with the original Blueberry will never forget. This rich berry aroma is an important part of what made Blueberry such a hit, and one smell of Berry Ryder Auto later you will certainly understand why.

Bringing together quick growth, generous yields, high quality bud and the kind of high that will keep you coming back time and again, you may quickly find Berry Ryder Auto becoming your new favourite strain. For some this may essentially be an autoflowering Blueberry clone, but for the legions of Blueberry fanatics out there this is hardly bad news. So sit back, light up and enjoy that classic berry taste.

gorilla-glue-auto-by-auto-seeds

Gorilla Glue Auto

Candy Kush

How does the idea of a strain so powerful and resinous that they had to put ‘Glue’ in the title sound to you? What about if it proved such a hit that it won both the SoCal and Michigan High Times awards for Best Hybrid in 2014? If either of these catch your interest then Gorilla Glue Auto by Auto Seeds may be the strain for you, providing the kind of heavy dose of couch-locked scissor-sticking goodness you’ve been waiting for.

Auto Seeds have crossed a carefully selected phenotype of the original Gorilla Glue with their autoflowering Auto #1. This has resulted in Gorilla Glue Auto, a strain that carries all the knockout indica strength of the original, combined with the autoflowering properties that make it easier than ever to get your hands on its delicious harvest.

Strength

Gorilla Glue Auto

If there is one thing Gorilla Glue is known for it is the kind of muscular deep full-bodied stone that lesser strains cannot hope to replicate without you consuming industrial-sized quantities. It hardly comes as a surprise then that Gorilla Glue Auto comes with the kind of THC level dreams (or nightmares!) are made of, averaging a weighty 23%. Some phenotypes of the strain have even been found to measure around 30%. This makes it one of the strongest indicas in the world, and as enjoyable as Gorilla Glue Auto is it should probably be handled with caution by less experienced smokers.

Its effects are quick, strong, and will stick around all evening even with modest amounts consumed. The thick bodily effect it gives is both relaxing and euphoric, with the kind of couch-lock that will see you relaxed whether you like it or not! This is accompanied by a pleasant buzz that transforms into a state of mental relaxation that brings with it a calm euphoria to create a holistic and powerful effect.
Because of its strength and all-over effects that are felt both mentally and physically, Gorilla Glue Auto works well as a medicinal strain. Treating mental sources of discomfort such as stress and anxiety as well as a wide range of physical conditions including asthma, epilepsy, migraines and nausea, this is one strain that may offer a much needed source of relief.

Yield

While many advise that Gorilla Glue Auto should be used sparingly due to its strength, the yields this autoflowering plant provides are punishingly high. Indoor growth will see you easily harvesting 400-600g per m2 once it has flowered, while outdoors a more modest 50-300g per plant can be obtained.

Speed

Gorilla Glue Auto

For a strain that offers so much in terms of strength and yield, Gorilla Glue Auto is surprisingly easy to grow. It demands very little regardless of whether it is cultivated indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse, withstanding a surprising amount of variation in temperature, climate and nutrients. This easily-thriving plant will not cause you any headaches, taking only 65-75 days to flower and growing anywhere between 60-100cm.

It is advised for indoor growers to use a 600w light per m2 to obtain those bigger yields, while quality nutrients and CO2 enhancements will help both the quality and quantity of your bud. Outdoors it can be grown in pots or in the ground, but if using pots it is advised the containers be no less than 40-50 litres in size for best results.

Taste

With all the attention paid to its stellar stone and easy-growing autoflower genetics, you may be forgiven for thinking Gorilla Glue Auto would not have an especially noteworthy taste. Thankfully this is a rather inaccurate assumption, with the strain packing the kind of flavour that will make it a key component in enjoying the overall experience.

The taste is a rich one consisting of fruity citrus, earthiness and pine alongside delicate notes of coffee. Similar combinations of flavours can also be found in strains such as Sour Diesel and OG Kush, whose taste is often considered a key factor in their success.

Bag Appeal

Gorilla Glue Auto

The fat yields produced by Gorilla Glue Auto have certainly not come at the expense of visual appeal. Their buds are not only abundant but thick and deliciously resinous too, undoubtedly making them responsible for countless clogged-up scissors around the world.

There is a palpable denseness to the bud, giving a satisfying weightiness that hints at the couch-lock to come. This is completed with an icy trichome covering, adding the finishing touches to an already exquisitely presented strain.

Opening the bag reveals the same delectable scent as you find in the taste itself, those notes of citrus, pine and coffee mingling with the solid earthiness for mouth-watering olfactory appeal.

Proving itself to be far more than just another strain with a hefty THC content, Gorilla Glue Auto takes all the strength and flavour of the original and makes it even easier to grow. This is finished with autoflowering genetics and a heavy yield to makes it a top choice for commercial and recreational growers alike.
