Did you know that the increasingly popular Gorilla Glue was actually discovered by accident? These Indica-dominant hybrid cannabis seeds are a cross between Sour Dubb and a Chem Sister on the mother’s side and a Chocolate Diesel on the father’s side. The name suggests that you will be “glued” to the sofa. However, this potent strain has many strong properties characteristic of Sativas. So if you want to buy potent cannabis seeds and grow them outside in the northeast, Gorilla Glue might be for you.
The short answer is ‘yes’ you can successfully grow weed outside in the NE of the USA in places such as New England and Massachusetts – where growing weed for medicinal purposes is legal incidentally so long as it is out of public view. However, to do so you must select the right varieties that will cope in cooler, wetter climates. Here are five strains that will do well in the northeast:
1. Gorilla Glue autoflower
The Northern Lights Autoflowering is a very homogeneous, fast, productive cannabis plant that is very easy to grow. It looks good indoors and outdoors, it is one of the varieties that best withstand errors or carelessness during cultivation.
If you want to grow weed but live somewhere with a climate that is not exactly the Mediterranean, do you have any options? After all, weed grows like a – well like a weed – when there are long, sunny days and just the right amount of rain, like northern California or the uplands of northern India and Pakistan.
The strain features an ideal aromatic and gustatory balance: the fruity intensity of the sweet blueberries and the typical cheese flavour at the highest level. A surprising and tasty combination which is evidently reflected in the buds which give off a delicious and penetrating fruity aroma.
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.
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 the selections on this list, you can avoid unnecessary trouble with rain and frost in October and November. While other growers are busy inspecting their developing buds for mould, you’ll be drying and curing your harvest and filling up your jars. If you missed out on our top 5 strains for colder and warmer climates, feel free to give those a look as well!
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.
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.
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.
Critical Kush features some of the cerebral and rather sativa-like effects of OG Kush in addition to the powerful couch-lock stone of Critical—a classic scenario of “buy one high, get one free”. Growers looking for a sturdy, potent, and profit-yielding strain for the outdoors won’t make a bad decision with Critical Kush. The rewards you’ll receive in late September are huge: outdoor yields of up to 550g/plant, a long-lasting and intense effect, and a final product with an average THC level of 20%.
