5 Heavy-Yielding Strains That Will Exceed Your Expectations

Any cannabis grower wants his garden to produce potent and fragrant flowers in large amounts. However, the genetics of the plant have the upper hand in this matter.

Every strain has a programmed amount of yield it can provide, and it is up to the grower to reach this result by satisfying all of the plant's needs: nutrients, climate, grow medium, light regime, and many others. However, if the strain is supposed to give you two ounces of buds, it will be quite difficult to get any more.

Here, you will find five strains that are genetically inclined to providing heavy yields. These strains are the perfect choice for both seasoned growers and beginners. So, even if you do not have strong growing skills, you can choose these strains to keep your motivation as high as the colas in your garden.

Cheese Quake

With a sativa/indica ratio of 40:60, the Cheese Quake strain delivers a cerebral and physical high that starts with a tingling head buzz and is followed by an energetic body stone. This hybrid is the result of crossing the Cheese and Querkle genetics, which provided the strain with a funky sour aroma that resembles cheese and a similar taste that also contains fruity undertones.

The flowering period of this strain lasts about 55-65 days, and during this time, the plants tend to stretch enormously: they can grow up to six feet and if they are not topped. If you grow your garden indoors, it is better to apply pruning or low-stress training (LST) techniques in order to make the plants grow in a bushy shape and deliver you a gorgeous yield. The buds can be too heavy for the branches, so think ahead about the support for your flowering plants to prevent them from breaking.

When it comes to choosing and buying cannabis seeds, finding a trustworthy seed bank is crucial. Since the quality of the seeds you use determines the quality of the buds you will get in the end, many marijuana cultivators prefer to work only with big, well-known cannabis seed banks. WeedGrowHub will tell you about the five most famous and trustworthy global seed banks that offer marijuana seeds for sale.

Blue Dream

The Blue Dream hybrid is easy to find in any dispensary, and it is definitely one of the most popular strains in the U.S. It is the cross of sativa Haze and indica Blueberry, and both of its parents gave the best to its child: sweet lemony taste and scent together with a strong, long-lasting, pacifying, mellow euphoria that is highly appreciated by both connoisseurs and novices.

The high can last for around three hours, which makes this strain suitable for easing numerous health conditions as well as for killing pain.

Since Blue Dream is mildew-resistant and usually grows quite tall, it is perfect for growing outdoors. It takes nine weeks for it to flower. In the middle of October, you can expect to get exceptional yields: up to 18 ounces (500 grams) per plant. The plant reveals its full potential in the Mediterranean climate provided that it is generously fed with nutrients.

Indoor or Outdoor Growing: What to Choose?
Indoor or Outdoor Growing: What to Choose?
In the matter of cannabis cultivation, the first question that comes up is the choice of the medium. Some people prefer growing outdoors in soil; other resort to hydroponic mediums that make it possible to grow marijuana indoors. There are numerous differences between these two approaches, but each one of them has its pros and cons.

Purple Trainwreck

Since the Humboldt Seed Organization bred Purple Trainwreck by crossing the legendary Trainwreck and Mendocino Purps, the Purple Trainwreck hybrid has been one of the most popular strains among both experienced growers and beginners. It is easy to grow and has high yields—what else one can ask for?

The strain has pleasant lemony aroma and flavor, and its uplifting high delivers a powerful euphoria and amazing painkilling effects.

This strain grows equally well both indoors and outdoors. It has only eight weeks of flowering, which makes it a good choice for those who want to get a yield as fast as it is possible. It has also become very popular among growers who use greenhouses.

It is a beautiful flower with bright purple buds and dark red hairs. Due to its sativa genetics, it can grow into a real monster, especially if you provide it with all the nutrients it requires. However, some indica-dominant phenotypes tend to be a bit bushier and more compact. But whatever phenotype you choose, Purple Trainwreck is easy to grow and not very picky. It is mold- and mildew-resistant, so as long as you keep it away from the cold, you can expect it to cause no problems. On average, it can produce up to 25 ounces per plant.

Critical Kush

The indica-dominant Critical Kush hybrid includes the genetics of the legendary OG Kush, which provided its child with an earthy flavor and impressive potency, and Critical Mass, known for its sweet citrus taste and aroma. The high is so powerful it knocks you out completely and leaves you stoned.

Apart from the tempting scent and flavor, the parents gave Critical Kush the ability to produce massive yields, up to 23 ounces (650 grams) per plant. The herb flowers for eight weeks and grows up to 43 inches (110 cm) in height. Unfortunately, this strain is not mold-resistant, so it is better to grow it in greenhouses or indoors where you can strictly regulate humidity. It also needs to be heavily fed, so give it the best nutrients. In the end, healthy and heavy buds will be your reward.

Some users believe that the higher the THC level of the strain is, the more powerful the high will be. However, the situation is not that simple. The effects of the strain depend not only on the amount of THC and CBD but also on their ratio.

White Widow

White Widow is a balanced sativa-dominant hybrid that was created by crossbreeding a Brazilian sativa landrace and a South-Indian indica. It became famous after it appeared on the market in the Netherlands in the 1990s, and since then, it has been possible to find it in almost every dispensary or coffeeshop.

Cannabis connoisseurs love this strain for its impressive resin production and great energizing effect that stimulates communication and creativity. The powerful burst of euphoria can almost knock you out already after the first puff.

All these attractive properties are complemented by great genetics that promise to deliver up to 32 ounces (900 grams) per plant. Moreover, White Widow is also resistant to mold and pests, which makes it almost invincible. Therefore, it can be cultivated in any garden, both indoors and outdoors. The flowering period lasts from eight to nine weeks.

It is certainly not the full list of heavy-yielding strains, but these are the most popular ones on the U.S. market. However, we hope that soon more and more strains will advance, and getting 20 ounces per plant will be not something exceptional but an ordinary occurrence.
