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.

Blueberry Kush Auto Marijuana by Nirvana

Blueberry Kush Auto

Strength

Blueberry Kush  cannabis

Even though Blueberry Kush is pure Indica, its THC level comes in the range of 20% to 24%. This is on the higher side, even for modern Sativa-dominant strains. But the Indica genetics help to keep it grounded. In other words, while you’ll feel the classic euphoric happiness, its uplifting effect is balanced by an overall feeling of mellow relaxation. This makes it easy to transition seamlessly into the comfort of an old-school, Indica, full-body stone. It will probably make you quite sleepy, so it’s probably best to keep Blueberry Kush for use at night. Or at least to make sure and allow yourself plenty of recovery time.

Yield

You can collect up to 650g/m2 indoors or 1Kg per plant outdoors. This is more respectable when you consider that this strain is very compact, with a growing range of about 1M (indoor minimum) to 1.5M (outdoor maxim). Although if outdoor growing conditions are particularly good, it can push its way towards 2 metres. And increase in harvest.

Speed

Blueberry Kush  marijuana seeds

Blueberry Kush is ready to harvest in 8 to 10 weeks indoors. Outdoors, you can harvest anytime between the end of September and the start of November.

Indoors, this strain will respond happily to plant training. You will, however, need to remember that, like all Indicas, this strain likes to stretch outwards about as much as upwards. You will need to take this into consideration when deciding how many plants you can realistically fit into your growing space. Remember that even though this strain does have a very high degree of genetic resistance to mould, diseases and pests, you’re still asking for trouble if you compromise on ventilation.

Outdoors, your main consideration will be to keep your plants warm and dry. This means that outside of the Mediterranean area, you might want to think long and hard about whether or not you’re really in a position to undertake a full outdoor grow. If you’re in the UK/Scandanavia then you probably want to think of this strain as being an indoor-only one. If you’re desperate to avoid the costs of running grow lights, you could try growing this strain in a greenhouse. Although you might find it easier all round just to invest in some economical (and cool-running) LED lights and grow indoors.

Taste

With a name like Blueberry Kush, you’d probably expect the main flavour to be blueberry and it’s certainly one of the key notes in the overall taste. There are other berries and fruits in there, including a dash of citrus lemon and some sweet woodiness. All grounded by that classic Kush spiciness. In short, if you like fruit and you like Kush then you’re probably going to love this strain. The aroma is very much dominated by blueberry and kush but there are broader notes of fruits as well as a touch of earthiness.

Bag Appeal

Some pheromones of Blueberry Kush will turn blue, particularly if you give them a helping hand by lowering the temperature at night.

cannatonic marijuana strain by msnl

Cannatonic

Strength

Cannatonic cannabis

Even though Cannatonic was developed specifically to emphasize CBD, it still has 7% THC. This is nowhere near close to enough to deliver anything remotely approaching a high. But it is enough to make itself felt in the form of a gentle lift to your mood and a certain degree of pain relief. People who buy Cannatonic, however, buy it for the CBD content. CBD content is generally in the region of 7%. In other words, this strain offers the medical “golden ratio” of 1:1 THC and CBD.

Yield

Indoors Cannatonic will deliver yields of up to 500g/m2 and outdoors you can expect up to 250-400g per plant. Plants tend to stay of a moderate size with a growing range of between 75cm (indoor minimum) and 2M (outdoor maximum). While this may seem quite a large range, it’s worth remembering that marijuana plants can adapt to fit the space available. Realistically however, you’d probably be best to assume that your plants will grow to a metre or so indoors. So make sure that there’s enough space for that, or be prepared to get to grips with plant training.

Speed

Cannatonic marijuana seeds

You’ll collect your harvest after 9 to 10 weeks of flowering indoors or in early/mid-October outdoors. Marijuana plants need space to spread horizontally as well as vertically. This is particularly true of strains with a high level of Indica genetics.

Unless you give your plants enough space, they’re going to start bumping in to one another. Then you are at high risk of mould due to the reduced ventilation. And once mould does strike, the chances are that it’s going to spread from plant to plant very quickly. In short, if you pay attention to your marijuana basics, especially ventilation, you should be fine with this strain.

If you’re growing outdoors, you are going to have to think about keeping your plants sheltered from cold, wind and rain up until the start of October. If you’re towards the northern end of continental Europe, you may want to think about splitting the difference and growing under glass, or indoors. Once you reach the UK, then you probably want to treat this strain as being an indoor variety.

We’ve classed this strain as being moderately difficult to grow, mainly because it’s a photoperiod strain and because of its height.

Taste

We’re going to point out that the taste of Cannatonic is grounded on a base of diesel. Although the taste is on the lighter side and is balanced by sweetness. With clear notes of pine and lemon. The aroma is the same. If you’re on the fence about diesel, then we’d suggest at least giving this strain a try and seeing how you feel about it.

Bag Appeal

The low THC content means that there’s relatively little in the way of dazzling white trichomes, but there are still a few for a light touch of glitter.
