The sad truth is that not everyone lives in a place that is suitable to grow marijuana seeds regardless of whether it is an indica or a sativa. But, for such problems, the best solution is to grow them indoors using a reliable grow tent or grow space that allows you to control the climate conditions needed for the marijuana plants to thrive well.
When growing marijuana indoors, you can probably grow most seeds well enough so long as you researched on the types of climate conditions they need to grow. However, there are certain cannabis strains that do better than most when it comes to indoor growing. So, if you are interested in knowing the best strains to grow indoors, here are the names you should look out for:
Northern Lights Automatic
The Northern Lights Automatic strain, which is the autoflowering version of the all-time great classic Northern Lights, was originally bred to be an indoor plant. That said, there is no reason why this strain will not do perfectly well indoors. On top of how easy Northern Lights already was for indoor growing, this autoflowering version simply makes it a lot easier due to its ruderalis genetics.
Due to how the Northern Lights Auto strain can trace its roots to the Afghani landrace, you can expect this bud to have a sweet flavor that makes it very appealing. And when it comes to its effects, it might not be as potent as the original Northern Lights but it still has a very pleasant relaxing effect that is perfect for beginners and for those who simply want a mellow evening of relaxation.
Northern Lights Automatic is an easy strain to grow indoors because of how it was specifically made to be one. It stays very small and will not take up a lot of space in your grow tent. Of course, due to its autoflowering capabilities, it will flower regardless of the light hours it gets. It will be ready for harvest in only about 9 or so weeks.
Northern Lights #5 x Haze
It might be a mouthful to say its full name but Northern Lights #5 x Haze really is just a cross between a phenotype of Northern Lights and the popular Haze sativa strain. This makes it a good hybrid that not only has a nice combination of effects but also a mix of genetics that allows it to grow well both indoors and outdoors.
Northern Lights #5 x Haze comes with a really unique yet sensational combination of different flavors as it hits your mouth with different spices and herbs that also have undertones of earthiness and a sort of pine. The effects are almost immediate and will make you feel invigorated and euphoric the moment you inhale the smoke. And due to its indica side, it makes you feel relaxed without accompanying it with the tired feeling you get from the usual indica.
This strain performs well when grown in a sunny and tropical kind of climate where it can get a lot of sunshine. As such, you will be able to grow it well indoors if your outdoor conditions do not fit its standards. Make sure to control the climate conditions indoors to give it a warm and humid climate that is perfect for its tastes.
White Widow has long been a fixture in the cannabis industry due to its identity as a favorite in the Dutch coffee shop scene. However, it is not merely a popular strain in the Netherlands but is also a worldwide sensation that will surely fly off the shelves first wherever you might put it. On top of that, this hybrid is also a really easy plant to grow indoors or outdoors because of its wonderful genetics.
In terms of its flavor, White Widow is not the most appealing strain and has a sort of skunkiness and earthiness in its taste. However, it more than makes up for that with its effects. This hybrid has a great combination of different types of highs. It is mostly known as a substitute for coffee because of its energizing and invigorating buzz, which is great for starting the day with. However, its indica side makes it a good strain for productivity because it keeps your body relaxed and grounded throughout the day.
White Widow is perfect for either indoor and outdoor growing because of its genetics. However, it prefers to be in a semi-humid environment that is a bit warm as well. Expect this strain to be ready for harvest in about 9 or so weeks. Its autoflowering version, however, is easier and quicker to grow but is also less potent than this one.
True to its name, Big Bud really does develop big buds. It comes from an Afghani landrace and the Skunk Afghan. And when it comes to yields, it inherited its parents’ qualities to become one of the best strains at delivering a generous harvest. That means that it should be a favorite indoor strain for you if you prefer plants that give off high yields more than other types of strains.
Big Bud is known for having flavors and aromas that are very dank and earthy but with a bit of fruity sweetness underneath as well as a tad of spiciness. In terms of its effects, it is mostly sativa in nature as it promotes mental clarity and creativity as well as some sensory distortions that can be trippy. However, this will eventually translate into a lazy indica buzz that will keep you glue to your seat. This makes it a good strain to use when listening to music or watching television or movies.
The cream of the crop when it comes to growing Big Bud is how massive its buds are. It is a very generous plant when it comes to yields. As such, this equally big plant needs to be cultivated in an indoor space that is pretty big and can provide it with a lot of light. Other than that, it pretty much takes care of itself as it does not need to be supported due to its thick stalk.
Bubba Kush is a classic strain that comes from the famous Kush line of cannabis. That means that it can trace its roots all the way to the Hindu Kush landrace even though it is said to be the child of the OG Kush and a phenotype of Northern Lights. Its parentage makes it a good hybrid that has great genetics that makes it an ideal strain for indoor growing.
Combusting Bubba Kush will give off a hashy and earthy kind of scent that can be reminiscent of coffee at times. Despite its purple color, its sweetness is not reminiscent of grape but is more dank and peppery. Its effects are quite nice in the sense that it gives you a good indica buzz that will keep you locked on your couch but also provides a nice mental stimulation that will allow you to daydream while enjoying its relaxing high.
Bubba Kush is a good strain for beginner growers and for those who love cultivating marijuana indoors. It is resistant to molds, which makes it a good strain for a hydroponics setup. It also grows quicker than most strains as it will be ready for harvest in about 8 to 9 weeks. Expect it to have a heavier yield when grown using hydroponics indoors.
Silver Haze #9
People do not always like growing Haze marijuana strains because of how long it takes to grow them and how big they usually are. While Silver Haze #9 still has those attributes, what makes it a good plant for growing indoors is that it makes all the effort worth it due to its high-yielding property and is great sativa effects. Some say that it is the more refined version of the classic Super Silver Haze.
Silver Haze #9 has the same kind of earthy and woodsy flavors you can expect from Super Silver Haze but also carries a good kind of sweetness anyone will love. Its effects are mostly sativa in nature as this strain hits you with a bolt of energy that will surely kick you up to make you feel invigorated and motivated throughout the entire day.
Although it is usually a very tall plant, Silver Haze makes all the effort worth the while because of how large its yields are even when grown indoors. As a sativa, it needs a lot of light to grow well indoors so make sure that you keep you give it more hours of light. It has a flowering period of about 10 to 12 weeks and takes a long time to transition to the flowering stage because of how long it tends to stay in the vegetative phase.
Twilight is a pure indica strain that is just actually an adapted version of the Afghani landrace. As such, it has most of the great attributes of the Afghani but comes in a package that was meant to be able to grow well in the European climate.
Like the Afghani landrace, Twilight has a fruity and citrusy kind of taste that has a good sweetness in it. However, it also has distinct diesel-like and chemical-like undertones that make it a pretty unique strain in its own right. Meanwhile, its effects are mostly indica in nature as it keeps you sedated for a very long time to help you enjoy the matching euphoric sensation it comes with.
Due to how it was bred to adjust to a different climate, Twilight is great at adjusting to a different environment and is a good plant to grow indoors. It mostly stays short as a plant and will be ready for harvest in about 8 to 10 weeks.
There are not a lot of people who have not heard about Jack Herer both as a person and as a marijuana plant. Named after one of the greatest figures in cannabis history, the Jack Herer strain is a good plant that can be grown indoors so long as you can adjust the climate conditions to whatever it needs to thrive well.
Jack Herer is a very aromatic strain that will hit you with a lemony and zesty kind of appeal. Its taste, meanwhile, is quite herbal and spicy but also with a kick of lemony goodness. With a THC level as high as 24%, Jack Herer is a potent sativa-dominant strain that is great at making you feel creative and imaginative.
Cultivating Jack Herer indoors requires you to give it a Mediterranean-like climate that is quite sunny, warm, and humid. And if you give it what it needs, it will be able to give you a really generous harvest in about 10 weeks.
Hash Plant is a strong and hashy strain that comes from the Afghani landrace and potent indica effects that are great for anyone using it during the evening. It has been in the industry since the 1980s and is a pretty good strain to grow indoors because of its short growing time and its love climates that have low humidity.
As the name suggests, Hash Plant comes with a hashy taste with a bit of earthiness and wood in its flavor. And, as mentioned, it is a strong indica that will knock you off your feet with effects that will certainly make you feel very relaxed and at peace with yourself until you fall asleep into a deep and very refreshing slumber.
Hash Plant is better when grown indoors so long as you give it a climate that is a bit cold and with low humidity levels. Even though it does not prefer a humid environment, you can still use most methods of indoor growing. That includes hydroponics as well. It will be ready for harvest in as quick as 40 days.
A strain that weirdly gives a heavier yield indoors than outdoors, Super Skunk is a potent indica-dominant strain that can trace its roots to the Skunk #1 and the Shiva Skunk. And, according to its breeders, it is considered to better than both of its predecessors.
Super Skunk might have the skunk name but it actually has a pretty nice aroma. It can smell quite a bit like cheese a bit like fungus but it has a taste that is quite appealing because of how clean and sweet it is. Its effects are indica in nature and will keep your body heavy and relaxed.
You can always expect Super Skunk to perform well indoors as it will give you a higher yield compared to when you grow it outdoors. Moreover, it also flowers pretty quickly as you might need only about 8 weeks for it to be ready for harvest.
