Where would we be without the elderly wisdom and guidance of Grandaddy Purple? Though not as senior as its name suggests (it was popularized in 2003 by Ken Estes), “Granddaddy Purp” easily earns its title as the king of indica strains. Fittingly, the dense flower features waves of deep purple and sports an icy dusting of white trichomes, and produces a complex grape and berry aroma when smoked. This indica-heavy hybrid also boasts an average THC content of around 20%.
Much like driving a high-performance supercar, growing Grandaddy Purple requires a steady and experienced hand to get the most out of. It can be a challenge for new growers and is best cultivated by those with a bit of experience and some quality equipment. One thing to watch out for: it’s susceptible to mold and mildew, so heat and humidity need to be well-balanced. Unless you’re in a Mediterranean-like environment, this strain needs to be kept indoors to thrive. After about 10 weeks of growth, you can expect a flower haul averaging about 17 ounces.
Half-Afghani, half-Thai, Northern Lights is a legendary indica strain that will have you on your way to watch the night sky. It’s equally well known for the relaxing and euphoric full-body feeling it produces as it is for its sweet and spicy pine aroma. One of the most legendary strains ever, Northern Lights is especially popular as a medical marijuana choice, as it is often associated with relieving stress, pain, depression, and insomnia.
When it comes to growing, Northern Lights is a good choice for beginners and experts alike. It’s a notoriously hardy strain, resilient against pests, disease, and adverse weather, making for a margin of error that is easy to recover from while still producing a significant yield. The plants grow to a bushy 5 feet tall and will need to be pruned and trimmed to ensure airflow. Though the strain can grow outdoors, it is still generally advised that growers keep it indoors. Expect the plants to flower in six to eight weeks, with a heavy yield of up to 1.63 ounces per square foot. Notably, Northern Lights is also a parent strain of many others on our list of the 100 best strains of all time.
According to Seed Supreme, Blue Dream reigns as the single best-selling strain on the North American commercial cannabis market. This delicious hybrid strain is a legend out of California, combining the dank indica sweetness of Blueberry with the buzzy and brilliant sativa-like effects of Haze. Leaning into its sativa roots, Blue Dream produces a high that balances full-body relaxation with mental stimulation, making it popular among creatives, but also a favorite for relieving nausea, pain, and depression, boasting an average THC content of 25%. Top it off with a sweet, intense, and pungent berry aroma, and it’s no wonder that Blue Dream is so famous.
Blue Dream is also a delightfully simple strain to grow, making it a good choice for anyone who wants to give it a try. The plant is resilient to many conditions that can ruin other plants and is best grown indoors when outside conditions are unstable. Give the plant regular doses of nutrients, and be patient; it can be slow to get going, but suddenly explode, with as much as 600g of yield per square meter of grow space. Expect flowering to take around nine weeks.
If this all sounds dreamy, pick up some Blue Dream seeds to get growing.
Dense, green, and (not) mean, Bruce Banner takes its namesake from comic book lore. This monstrous hybrid lives up to its name, producing towering, high-yield plants, with flowers averaging a whopping 27% THC. Its dense nugs sport a light green profile with plenty of orange and red running through it, and produce a strong buzz that comes on fast, before yielding to euphoria. These qualities make it a popular choice for creatives. Despite its strong effects and demeanor, Bruce Banner has a delicate flavor profile derived from its parent strains, combining the berry elements of Strawberry Diesel with the dank skunky scent of OG Kush.
For growers, Bruce Banner is sure to yield massive results, but this comes with a unique challenge. Containing the plant can be difficult, and growers have to make sure they have adequate headspace for the towering plants to flourish. Bruce Banner can do very well outdoors with stable Mediterranean-like weather conditions. Fortunately, even when growing conditions are not perfect, decent conditions can still produce remarkable results, averaging 25 ounces of weed for every square meter of grow space, making it a forgiving choice for beginners.
