Fast, powerful, productive and incredibly beginner friendly, it is easy to see why Auto Flowering Cannabis Seeds strains have become popular with all growers, here’s why:
Auto Flowering Cannabis Seeds make growing cannabis so much easier. The clever genetic mix brings you all the effects, yield, potency, taste and quality as any Regular or Feminised Cannabis Seeds but with the benefit that they are easier to grow.
Auto Flowering cannabis varieties automatically switch from vegetative growth to the flowering stage with age, as opposed to Regular/Feminised strains which need a ratio of light to dark hours.

This essential characteristic evolved as a necessity for survival in the harsh, inhospitable areas of central Russia where Cannabis Ruderalis, the original autoflowering strain that bred this almost magical ability, originated. Lacking the longer, warmer summers of the Indian continent or the tropical and equatorial zones where (respectively) Indica and Sativa evolved, their relative did not have the luxury of being able to wait for the change in light cycles that signal the beginning of summer to start flowering – the weather would become cold enough to kill the plants before pollination and seeding could take place. Instead, it had to begin flowering as soon as it was old enough in order to have enough time to complete the reproductive cycle and make new seeds. Breeders immediately saw the advantage of this for other strains, and began breeding seeds with this ability to ‘auto flower’.
Feminized autoflowering cannabis seeds are easy to cultivate: They flower without the need to change light cycles or remove males. Automatic seeds are ideal for new growers, and for those who want a low-maintenance growing experience. Sensi Seeds’ sativas, indicas and hybrids (high THC or high CBD) are ideal for medicinal and recreational cannabis users alike.
Autoflowering seeds, on the other hand, are able to complete their life cycle regardless of how long the days are, although at least eighteen hours of light will give the best results. Unlike regular seeds, ‘auto’ seeds grow crops that do not need to undergo the usual cycle of 12 hours of light alternating with 12 hours of darkness in order to bloom successfully, whether they are indica, sativa or hybrid. They seem virtually immune to light pollution, tolerating irregular and unpredictable periods of light and darkness with impunity. Outdoor gardeners with short summers can wait until the warmest weeks to cultivate their automatic cannabis seed crop, safe in the knowledge that most of these hours will fuel the flower production, not the vegetation, period.
Grown outside, automatic seeds can produce two or more crops in the course of a normal summer. Under lights, ‘autos’ can go from seedling to fully mature plant in as little as 10 weeks. As an added bonus, most are also very hardy and resistant to fungal infections, mould, pests and even frost, due to their extremely robust, northern Eurasian genetic lineage – the Ruderalis – that evolved the ability to flower at will in order to survive. Seeds that automatically flower can be grown indoors, out of doors or in a greenhouse. In addition, all seeds in this category are feminized and from a wide range of genetics, offering different kinds of flavour, aroma and effect.
Yield factors for autoflowering seed strains
In addition, these strains are a great choice for gardeners in less warm climate areas who wish to grow on open ground, or on a balcony or window ledge, but find themselves restricted by short summers.
How is cannabis able to flower automatically?
If you haven’t heard about autoflowering seeds, where have you been? These seeds combine all the potency and stable genetics of usual cannabis strains into one sleek and shiny package, leaving you with a genetically modified gold-mine. The quality and speed of these seeds will blow your mind.
But what are autoflowering seeds? These high-performance seeds automatically switch from vegetative growth to a flowering stage with just a little bit of age. This is instead of the usual ratio of light/dark hours that you have to calculate for seeds with photo period dependent or short-day strains. In short, they can be grown outdoors and can produce two or more harvests in the course of summer.
These seeds are so simple to collect, anyone could do it! Choose your strain and make your life easier.
Why do you need them? These seeds are ideal for those with limited space, time or energy. If you’re the type of person to be out and active all the time, autoflowering seeds are perfect as they don’t require too much attention like the other seeds in your collection. Also, there’s absolutely no need for the removal of male plants. Most are ready to harvest within 10 weeks from seed, meaning you won’t be left waiting around.
But all this information isn’t new. Autoflowering cannabis seeds have been around for years in the form of cannabis ruderalis. Modern advances with seed bank research have enabled the autoflowering properties to be combined with notorious strains sativa and indica, adding a real potency and vigour. The strains end up so strong that these seeds are actually resistant to disease, mould and adverse weather conditions. These developments in seeds have made it so much easier to get the results you want.
