Sweet ZZ is our own version of the legendary Zkittlez. With its fruity aroma and succulent flavour, it’s top favourite for all candy-loving cannabis growers.
But make no mistake, Speedy Chile is a photoperiod strain that flowers depending on the amount of available light hours per day. One could say that fast flowering strains are the next breeding evolution after autoflowering genetics: These strains produce high THC levels while maintaining an incredibly short total crop time.
Here are the traits your outdoor strain needs to include:
4. SWEET ZZ
Growing cannabis outdoors is extremely rewarding, if mostly for the large yields and low cost of operation. Many of Royal Queen Seeds’ varieties take very well to the outdoors, thriving under the natural sunlight. That said, when it comes to outdoor growing, the strain you choose can make all the difference between success or failure. For that reason, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 outdoor strains—cultivars that are ready to harvest by late September.
Although Sweet ZZ is indica-dominant, its effects are firmly focused on the mind, not the body. It will hit you with waves of uplifting thoughts and feel-good vibes. Add its delicious flavours of citrus, berries, and candy, and you get the physical embodiment of happiness in one awesome smoke. Good thing it’s not ultra-powerful with 15–20% THC. This way, you can savour its taste and effect for a long time before reaching the point of no return.
With Fat Banana, the breeders at RQS managed to hybridise the biggest and fattest Banana OG specimens. This Kush strain will seduce you with fruity flavours, and it may lay you flat on your couch with its incredibly potent smoke.
Bred from Grape Ape and Grapefruit, this indica-dominant hybrid takes only 7–9 weeks to flower, so you can cut this plant down in late September outdoors. When you do, better bring an extra bag, as this girl can yield up to 600g/plant in good conditions.
It’s also a great strain for beginners, because it’s forgiving and hardy!
If there’s one strain on our list that almost guarantees a successful outdoor grow, Super Skunk is the one.
