Best Outdoor Cannabis Seeds
Outdoor cannabis seeds for Northern Europe and Canada – top picks
If you’ve ever tried to grow cannabis up north and failed it was probably due to the fact that you used a poorly suited cannabis strain. Most cannabis varieties have evolved to warm tropical climates with long growing seasons.
Years of development have produced some super strains ideal for growing in the UK and Ireland as well as north-western Europe in general.
These select marijuana strains that grow incredibly well in our short growing season.
Factors that are taken into consideration are fast growth, short flowering cycle, mould resistance, and large harvests of great tasting potent weed.
Taking above factors into consideration, the best cannabis seed strains for growing outdoors in the UK and Ireland and listed below.
If you want fast growing and early harvesting get an auto-flowering strain
Autoflowering strains can be harvested in as little as 70 days from germination, meaning that it is possible to have multiple plantings and harvests within one growing season.
Autoflowering strains do not have the heavy yields of the top grade cannabis strains listed below but you can make up for that by planting lots and planting often.
