As the progeny of White Indica and ruderalis, Easy Bud produces frosty flowers featuring a THC content of 12% alongside citrusy and earthy terpenes. These buds won’t blast you to the moon, but they will offer a soothing and subtle effect perfect for any time of day.
Our autoflowering varieties, on the other hand, are the fastest in our archive. Infused with Cannabis ruderalis genetics, these cultivars don’t require external cues to flower. Instead, they surge from seed to harvest in a matter of weeks, making them perfect for stealthy home growers.
Cannabis cultivators look for specific traits when selecting a strain. Some search for flavour and potency above all else, whereas others are more concerned with speed. Luckily for both the former and latter camps, the breeders at Royal Queen Seeds have dedicated a lot of time to developing top-quality strains that are quick off the mark and rapid to deliver their goods.
Some of our most popular strains in this category include:
Quick One is one of the fastest auto-growing strains on the planet. The plant is based on the original auto flowering strain – Lowryder. This strain was created from a cross between William’s Wonder x Northern Lights x Ruderalis. These plants are usually ready for harvest in 8 weeks from germination. The plants also reach between 50 and 60 cm and can yield up to 150g per plant.
As well as offering a rapid flowering time, Candy Kush Express is a rich source of terpenes, emanating notes of sugary sweet citrus. Her speed of growth and incredible taste make her a great strain for cannabis chefs who want a crop that yields well on a regular basis. This strain features a close balance of 60% indica genetics and 40% sativa, which exerts an effect that relieves tension from the body while keeping the mind alert and functional.
Some of our most popular selections in this category include:
True to her name, you’ll be able to tell she’s skunky before you even try her. The effects she brings are definitely relaxing and soothing (you’ll certainly feel every bit of her 20% THC content), but with some strong uplifting qualities, making Skunk Auto ideal for a night in with friends.
When it comes to smoking, she provides an overall mild but long-lasting high that is deeply relaxing and speckled with euphoria. A THC content of 15% hits just the right spot for smokers looking to somewhat maintain their ability to function.
There’s nothing scary about this strain; just some high-performing plants that make Monster Mash Auto a must-have. She’ll be ready to harvest after a period of 7 weeks on average, and the results are simply breathtaking. Monster Mash Auto is a hybrid strain derived from American Kush and Black Domina. She’s certainly high-yielding, clocking in at anywhere between 450–500g/m². For a plant that stands at around 85cm, this is a huge harvest. Just be sure to keep an eye on humidity and provide some maintenance along the way, and you too can enjoy her.
8. Watermelon Automatic (Royal Queen Seeds)
Automatically progressing from veg into bloom, these plants call for simple lighting requirements, less fertiliser, and slightly less maintenance than photoperiod feminized cannabis. Couple this with their robust and resilient ruderalis genetics, and you’ve got the makings of some easy-to-manage plants. Typically, autoflowering plants are also smaller in stature, making them perfect for discreet indoor and outdoor operations.
When we hear the word “diva”, it often conjures up visions of a difficult or demanding person. However, with La Diva, you’re only in for a smooth experience. With some awesome parentage by way of Il Diavolo crossed with Blue Berry, La Diva provides some great features in the grow-op and the stash jar. She’s a robust strain, demonstrating great resistance against mould, and is easily cultivated in both indoor and outdoor settings. Taking an almost unbelievably short 6–7 weeks to reach harvest, she is still capable of delivering up to 400–450g/m² indoors and 50–100g/plant under the sun.
Six weeks is all it takes to get a taste of Green-O-Matic. She’s an autoflowering indica-dominant powerhouse that comes from quadruple genetics. Formed from the crossing of White Dwarf x Low Rider x Moroccan x ruderalis, she impresses where it counts! She’s able to be grown at any time of year, and is robust enough to deal with some of the trickiest climates with ease. After her super-short growing cycle, you can anticipate some stunning indoor returns of up to 800g/m². Just take that in for a moment.
Having scooped up 1st prize at the 2018 Highlife Cup, you know you’re in great hands with this sweet and earthy delight. She provides a long-lasting high that harnesses the relaxing prowess of her parents, and will have you chilled out in no time at all. You can thank her 18% THC content and predominantly indica genetics for this soothing effect.
