Gifted to the Joint Doctor by a dreadlocked Mexican pal, the “Mexican Ruddy” is still an unsolved cannabis mystery. Eventually, this enigma will be unravelled as we already have the technology. Unfortunately, the genome mapping of cannabis hasn’t even begun. All we can say for sure about this cannabis curiosity is that this is where the autoflowering trait comes from. Some say it’s a cross of Mexican sativa and Siberian ruderalis engineered at the University of Mississippi in the early 1970s. Another version claims it’s the product of the University of Ottawa cannabis research. And we have a few more far-out myths to share a little later. For now, let’s settle on the fact that it’s definitely ruderalis of some sort, and the seeds came from a Mexican dude.
The first Lowryder seeds became widely available around 2003. It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years, but that’s a long time in 21st century cannabis breeding. Lowryder has evolved and changed with the times. In fact, two of our own star auto strains share Lowryder genetics. Both Diesel Automatic and Quick One are dank descendants of Lowryder.
Diesel Automatic brings together the connoisseur darling head stash NYC Diesel with the upgraded Lowryder #2. Compact, low-maintenance, and a real mix of the best attributes from both parent strains, Diesel Automatic is already a favourite with microgrowers and outdoor growers farming in cooler climates. 14% THC flowers release a familiar flavour-blast of fuel upon combustion. Diesel Automatic delivers a clear, uplifting high. 50–70cm tall plants with an impressive flower-to-leaf ratio can yield as much as 110g/plant in 8 weeks from seed.
Regrettably, the vast majority of breeding projects were abandoned early, and the autoflowering trait was ruthlessly weeded out. Huge mistake! Back then, it seemed like the right move. Indica-sativa crosses were the focus, and nobody had the time to figure out the secret to unlocking the autoflowering trait from otherwise undesirable “ditch weed”.
Northern Lights #2 was commonly known as “Closet Queen” during the 1980s, and until the end of the decade, was a pillar of pioneering Dutch seedbanks. Today, this prized breeding stock has been lost somewhere in time. “The Indian” is weeping. The plant was even more compact than the Northern Lights we know today, and therefore favoured by early indoor growers. This short and dank phenotype was crossed with virtually everything during the ‘80s to create faster-flowering, more potent hybrids for indoor cultivation. Northern Lights #2 played a big role in moving cannabis cultivation indoors.
Lowryder is still one of the fastest growing strains on the market and just never dissapoints.
Lowryder is probably the most known auto-flower variety around today. Auto-flower is a type of plant that will flower almost straight after germination, with very little to none veg required. Though it may not be the best smoke out there, there isn’t much else which delivers as quickly and in such a small plant.

J’ai commander de la lowryder il y a 2-3 semaine d’ici, elle est génial ! C’est une plante qui est facile à faire pousser, et qui prend très peut de place. Pour les amateurs de la plante qui désir cultiver je la vous conseille 🙂 Merci ZAMNEZIA
Nur einer von drei Samen hat nach über zwei Wochen gekeimt. Würde die Samen nicht weiter empfehlen.
Lowryder by Vision Seeds is one of the fastest growing plants available with a total life cycle of 8 weeks from seed to harvest. As the name suggest this is an extremely small plant growing up to 50cm tall, making this a perfect choice for those discrete grow operations. After 9 generations of selection, lowryder is stable and reliable with no hermaphrodite traits. Using an experimental Mexican Ruderalis, Williams Wonder and Northern Lights #2, Lowryder combines over 25 years of breeding.
Lowryder Strain Auto is a type of autoflowering hybrid strain that was designed specifically to give it its small size. The main intrigue of the Lowryder marijuana comes with its slow but strong onset. This applies both to its cerebral effects and to its medicinal effects. It is especially popular with Northern growers because it withstands colder climates quite well. It is also a good strain for beginners, given the fact that it is a hardy marijuana strain.
Lowryder was developed for extreme rapid growth with a life cycle from seed to bud of about 8 weeks. Both literally and figuratively this strain fits its name, uniquely short height, and amazingly versatile. Lowryder is stable and reliable in its properties, a product of nine generations of selective breeding, and is non-deviant and hermaphrodite-free. Lowryder claims direct descendance from superior William’s Wonder and Northern Lights no.2 indica, as well as a more exotic, virtually unknown short variety believed to be descended from Mexican Ruderalis, an experimental cross created over 25 years ago. Passing directly from the seedling to the flowering stage, Lowryder altogether does away with the vegetative growth stage, in a process called autoflowering. In other words, when planted, it sprouts, grows a couple sets of leaves, then immediately and automatically begins flowering. As a result, it is the quickest, most compact, and most discrete plant available. Lowryder’s appearance, taste, and effect, have nothing to envy of the finer cannabis varieties, an excellent strain with high potency and good resin production.
