homegrown bud

This plant has an amazingly strong incensed and sweet taste. The fragrance coming from the flowers will absolutely flood your garden or grow room, and when you’re smoking it you’ll probably kick yourself for not having planted even more. This plant produces quite a lot of resin on its leaves, so using the trimmings to extract hash and whatnot is a major advantage this strain has. It also has a thick central bud, followed by multiple large branches; this plant really is quite large. If you decide to grow it using the SCRoG method, then the mesh will be full almost straight away due to how fast the branches grow. Its effect is mostly indica, and it’s perfect for going to sleep. It also takes fertilizing quite nicely, but it really doesn’t need much to develop correctly; fertilizing once a week is enough to get the most out of this plant. You won’t regret trying these seeds, even if they do take a bit longer to flower.

Today we’re going to give you a list of strains that we know and love, so maybe you can find a decent one here that you want to try out for yourself! Our personal favorites are:

The best marijuana in the world is homegrown; no weed can be as satisfying as weed that you’ve grown yourself. Whenever you dedicate time and patience to your own plants, smoking them or consuming them in any other way is going to be much more satisfying than consuming any other cannabis that you can get your hands on. The best marijuana in the world is simply the one that you like the best; if you like feeling sleepy and relaxed, then the best strain in the world to you will be a nice strong and sedative Indica. If you’re a compulsive consumer and you want a strain for that every day grind, then the best strain in the world for you would be an energizing sativa.

This plant is medium sized, and if you’re planting in Spain you’ll need to plant around March/April so that it can develop a large amount of branches that you’ll need to wire later on so the branches can put up with the weight of the heavy buds. This plant loves sun light and is incredibly pleasing to smoke. It has a sweet flavor and once you exhale, that flavor will stick around in your mouth for quite a while. This plant is quite eye-catching to look at, with a mix of blue/purple tones, but its smell is even more interesting. It smells literally like bubble gum and candy, making you want to eat it right away, and that smell will soon translate into taste once it’s ready for harvest. We grew this baby from a clone and ever since then it’s been one of my favorite go-to strains. It’s the kind of cannabis that you have in your bag and people can smell it from meters away, giving you strange looks on the bus.

This is almost every experienced grower’s favorite strain. I’m pretty sure almost everyone has planted this strain at least once, and if you haven’t then now’s your chance. These plants are strong and resistant to practically everything. You can harvest this bad boy outdoors around the end of September if you’re looking to get the most of it, although it can look ready much earlier than that. It grows out long side branches that grow upwards with the plant, making for a Christmas tree-looking kind of plant. This strain isn’t delicate at all and it can deal with a heavy diet, as it’s much harder to over-fertilize than other strains. If you’re looking for a plant for guerilla grows, for early harvesting or for a large production in a small place, then this is the seed for you. Its taste and aroma are truly unique and characteristic, so if you’ve never tried it, it can be a bit difficult to describe. This strain is also perfect for novice growers, as it really doesn’t need too much care and the seeds themselves are rather cheap.

This strain is extremely potent and a favorite among smokers. It has dense and strong smoke that will conquer the lungs of even the most experienced of smokers. It’s really not hard to grow, as this strain isn’t delicate in the least. It grows strong and large during the summer and it turns into an absolute monster around mid-October (this is referring to Spain), it will obviously need to be planted and begin flowering at different times in different places around the world. These plants will fill up with long and fat buds. It tastes like… well, weed. It has that typical cannabis flavor that can’t be explained any other way. It’s perfect for helping you sleep, as you’ll feel the effect after just a few drags. Once you harvest this baby you’ll have potent buds that are full of resin, capable of K.O-ing the most experienced smoker you know. The plant in the photo was planted a bit late to keep it smaller, but you can plant it earlier and it will grow even fatter with a longer fattening period.

These are the strains that we’ve loved the most over the years, and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t forget to leave a comment below!

The ideal humidity level for drying cannabis is about 45-55%. If your humidity is lower than that, keep the fan extra low or omit it altogether to avoid overdrying your buds. We’ll talk more about how to measure humidity in just a moment. Serious growers, or those in particularly challenging climates, may use the assistance of humidifiers, dehumidifiers, heaters, or air conditioners to achieve that sweet spot.

7.) Ratio of THC to CBD

If your bud is still bright green or wet, chances are it has been freshly harvested and is uncured. In this situation, drying and curing the bud properly can sometimes increase the perceived potency. As a bonus, the curing process can also increase the smoothness and smell of buds.

This plant has an amazingly strong incensed and sweet taste. The fragrance coming from the flowers will absolutely flood your garden or grow room, and when you’re smoking it you’ll probably kick yourself for not having planted even more.

Buds generally should be slow-dried for at least 3 days (and as much as 7-10 days) after harvest for the best results in potency, smell, and smoothness. Don’t cook or dry them under a fan, as that can make buds weak and/or harsh. In my experience, drying buds properly may be the most important single factor when it comes to bud quality, so don’t skip this step.

In summary, when cannabis is properly harvested, dried, cured, and stored, it can stay fresh, tasty, and potent for up to a year – just in time for the next growing season! Check out the photo above! That is our cannabis harvest from last fall, and it is still measuring 65% humidity. The color and chlorophyll will naturally fade, and THC may degrade slightly, but it still smokes and feels quite wonderful.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you let the cannabis continue to grow too long and the trichomes turn all the way amber, the result is often a more lethargic, heavy body high. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan of “couch lock”! Some people prefer a more sedate and sleepy vibe. If that is the case, I suggest you grow strains that are known for those attributes in the first place, rather than trying to push your cannabis plant to an overly mature state by prolonging the harvest.

Once your cannabis has finished curing, you can shift to long term storage. For us, this looks no different than the curing stage – except that we aren’t opening the jars as often. We store our cannabis in the same half-gallon jars they were cured in. Choose any air-tight container, and store it in a temperate, dark location. It is recommended to quickly burp the jars about once a month, but we don’t stress that part too much. If you’re getting into your stash to use it, the jars are being burped plenty then.

Determining When to Harvest an Autoflower Cannabis Plant

The goal is to get the humidity of the flowers down to about 60-65% by the time they’re ready for long term storage. Therefore, I recommend to start the curing process when your cannabis is in the range of 62-68% humidity. With humidity over 70%, the chances of mold developing in storage is far greater! Additionally, the buds will only get more dry with time.

We dry our cannabis in a spare room in our house along a clothes line, or in the spare shower. It is easiest to break the plant down into branches and spread them out a bit, as opposed to hanging the whole damn thing like a dying Christmas tree. We use this combo thermometer/hygrometer in our drying room to assess the conditions.
