Growing weed is becoming more and more popular around the world. Not only is cannabis becoming more accepted as a medical treatment, but the world is accepting that weed really isn’t so harmful. Unlike alcohol and other drugs, marijuana is non-habit forming and could actually do your body some good.
For all you Canadians out there who have recently searched “how to grow marijuana in Canada” on Google, we’ve got your back. Since Canadians in most provinces can now legally grow their own bud, more citizens are growing for the first time. People all over the world for that matter are giving growing a go (regardless of the legality of it).
The first thing you need to know about growing is that you can simplify the process in several ways. The first thing to do is pick the right strains; certain strains of cannabis are more finicky in the growing process, while others require little attention. Here are 5 easy weed strains for beginner-level cannabis growers.
The name Green Crack might be misleading since this is not crack at all, but rather it’s just some powerful kush. Not only is Green Crack potent, but it is also extremely easy to grow. This particular sativa strain has been an outdoor staple of the California cannabis scene. Some people say it grows “like a weed” (no pun intended).
If you are just starting off growing and want an easy strain to ease into the process, this is the one for you. It has a relatively quick flowering time and produces a good amount of bud. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to find seeds of this stuff, you’ll have to get your hands on a few clones.
Blue dream isn’t just popular among smokers, it is also popular with growers, especially with those just starting off. With some strains, you really have to watch out for potential problems like root rot, but Blue Dream plants are basically resistant to it. Once your buds are properly harvested and ready to smoke, you’ll love the blissful high you feel from smoking it.
Dutch Treat is just as it sounds; it is a strain from Amsterdam and is literally a treat to smoke - and to grow. It is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that gives off a sweet aroma and leaves you feeling happy, relaxed, and a little hungry. Most first-time growers have a pretty easy time with Dutch Treat.
Similar to Blue Dream, the strain known as Cinex is resistant to problems like root rot and mildew. This is something that beginner growers often struggle with, so choosing a strain that stands strong against these things is important. Cinex plants tend to be short and bush-like, making them perfect for an indoor grow operation.
