10 Cannabis Strains to Grow Outdoors

For the Northern hemisphere, at least, summer is on its way – and that means many of us are about to move to favourable conditions for growing cannabis outdoors. There are considerations, of course, for you to be aware of before embarking on outdoor cultivation. We’ll look at these first, and then recommend some great outdoor cannabis strains. Climate The most important thing to factor in before planting cannabis outdoors is the climate, and that depends on where in the world you’re located. Suppose you’re in a part of the world with cooler, shorter summers. A good recommendation is to consider autoflowering strains with short flowering periods to combat the likelihood of inclement weather in the latter weeks of summer. Choosing seeds with Ruderalis genetics will give your crop a better chance of surviving unpredictable changes in weather such as cold snaps or prolonged bouts of rain.  If you’re in warmer areas with long, hot summers (i.e. closer to the equator), congratulations – you have a far wider range of possibilities for strain choices. However, there are still a few caveats to growing outdoor plants. These parts of the planet have much longer daylight hours and will see the mercury push up to insanely high temperatures, and the downside of that is that some strains will begin flowering too soon. This means shorter plants and possibly smaller yields, so choosing landraces (such as  Durbans or Afghanis) or sativa-dominant hybrids may be the best option for plants to thrive in the baking heat. Moisture Levels A good rule of thumb is that the closer you are to the ocean, the more humid the climate will likely be. If this is you, seek out strains that tout an excellent resistance to mould among their qualities – although this should be a prerequisite…
