This is a strong, sturdy plant that doesn’t need much attention, but be sure to give it plenty of space to stretch out—it grows tall, like parent Lemon Skunk. Scrogging always helps, but you’ll likely get solid yields even without it. SLH usually takes a little longer to flower, around nine weeks, another sign of its sativa roots, so you may need to be a little patient when waiting to harvest this one.
Tried-and-true, Blue Dream is a classic and one of the most popular strains, for both consumers and growers. This cross of Blueberry and Haze originated in Northern California and is a dream to grow—it usually grows big and strong and has high yields of buds, likely a result of its sativa-dominant genetics. Be sure to scrog it to maximize yields.
A relative newcomer to the strain world, Wedding Cake is a Cookies cross that launched a whole new family of cake strains, such as Ice Cream Cake, LA Kush Cake, Cake Batter, and so much more.
Super Lemon Haze
Another relatively new strain, GMO Cookies will smell like nothing you’ve ever grown before—its nickname is “Garlic Cookies.” Crossing two classic strains, GSC and Chemdog, GMO has dense, sticky, light green buds with orange hairs and is a high yielder. Its trichome levels make it a good one for pressing your own hash.
Growing weed is pretty easy, but some strains can be trickier to grow than others. Some are delicate and need a lot of attention or are prone to disease or mold, while others are sturdy and can handle missing a watering for a day or two. Also, certain strains have adapted to specific climates, so it might not make sense to grow one suited to warm weather if you live in a cold place.
Its sturdiness gives it a large margin of error when growing, in case you forget to water or give it nutrients, or give it too many nutrients for that matter. Blue Dream grows well in many different climates, both indoors and outdoors and can handle cold nights.
Its indica-dominant genetics means it usually grows short and stout, but it still gets solid yields and has dense buds. You’ll want to be sure to prune and top Wedding Cake to get rid of some of its foliage, for fear of it developing mold. This frosty strain is covered in trichomes and will be a sticky one in your garden, but its sweet citrusy smells with hints of vanilla make it a pleasure to grow.
Before dropping a seed into some soil, we recommend giving some thought to what kind of strain you want to grow. Consider how much space you have available, how much money you’re willing to spend, what kind of high and flavours you enjoy when you smoke, and your local weather patterns and climate.

Special Queen 1
If you’re just setting foot on your cannabis growing journey, starting off with easy genetics will really help you along the way. You’ll still need to take good care of your plants, but hardy, beginner-friendly strains are much more forgiving and easier to cultivate.
Beginner growers often don’t want to invest large amounts of money into a new hobby. If this applies to you, we advise purchasing cheaper seeds. This means less pressure to produce a perfect outcome, making for a more pleasant and casual growing experience. Oh, and “cheap seeds” doesn’t equate to bad genetics. Many cheaper varieties offer superb yields of high-quality flowers.
Clocking in at €4.50 for a single seed, Special Queen 1 offers a fantastic return on investment. She descends from a mix of genetics from Mexico, Colombia, and beyond, and provides a long-lasting high that targets the body and the mind. With a THC content of 18% and an average yield of 550g/m², Special Queen offers substantial bang for your buck.

I wanted to share two types of strains with you – Cannabis Cup Winners & Top Dispensary Strains!
I live in Southern California and when I go to dispensaries there are certain strains that show up over and over again on the top shelf, consistently selling out. Because of that, I know from personal experience that these strains are proven to produce incredible buds no matter who grows them and I wanted to share my own personal “insider” list with you. Most of these strains are on the pricey side, though I believe they’re worth the cost!
