To grow autoflowers or not to grow…that is the question. Autoflowering cannabis strains have been a hot topic for many cannabis growers. Just a few years ago, there were many people that wouldn’t touch autoflowering seeds with a ten-foot pole. However, things have changed. And how! Thanks to breeders with a passion for developing the best strains, we can now see many autoflowers being appreciated. Growers were apprehensive about autoflowers mainly because of the unforgiving nature of the plants. They also weren’t good in terms of yield when compared to photoperiod strains.

But now, autoflowers are not only great yielders, but you can also harvest two crops in the same amount of time you’d need to harvest one batch of photoperiod strains. It’s a no-brainer to grow autoflowering cannabis strains. If you’re looking to grow some kickass autoflowering cannabis, you’ve come to the right place. Because I’m not only going to talk about the top 5 high-yielding autoflowering strains, but I’ll also tell you how to achieve them!

1. How to get maximum yields with autoflowering cannabis seeds?

This is a question many people ask. Technically speaking, autoflowers are the easiest to grow. But there are some rules to be followed. Like everything else, you need to work hard to get the desired results. Also, autoflowers are not that daunting as you imagined them to be. So, let’s put aside the myths and focus on the facts, shall we?

Choose the best genetics

As humans, we receive certain traits and genes from our parents, so plants are no exception. To get the best output, you also have to choose the best strains. At Fastbuds, every little detail about the strain is mentioned including the required climate and genetics, so choosing a good strain should never be a problem. In fact, thanks to the advancement in research and technology, there are strains that are meant to deliver high yields. For instance, take a look at the Six Shooter Auto. Just the name is enough to suggest what this big girl can do.

This autoflowering strain packs massive colas that can put even the best photoperiod strain to shame. And if couch-lock is not your thing, this strain can make you salivate because it’s a gigantic Sativa that can kick-start your day with a cerebral buzz. The best part is that autoflowers are now as potent as photoperiod strains. But, the fact remains that all autoflowers are not the same. It takes a lot of research to truly create something that stands out from the rest. For that very reason, it’s important for you to do your research and only trust the best brands that work hard.

Minimal training

You’ve probably read countless articles on training techniques, especially for the photoperiod strains out there. But when it comes to autoflowers, it’s best to stick to minimal or no training at all. Sure, LST – Low Stress Training – works, but if you’re a beginner who’s just growing his first set of autoflowering cannabis seeds, you’re better off not training them.

Copious amounts of resin on autoflowering cannabis plant.

Training your plants may increase the yield at times, but since autoflowers are fast, they are best left alone. For example, Californian Snow Auto can be harvested in just 8 weeks, so where’s the time to train these girls? The best you can do is to prune them, but don’t overdo it as it can reduce the yields.


Autoflowers tend to perform well in the harshest of environments. It’s true! You probably think that autoflowers are extremely unforgiving, but you’ll know the truth once you actually grow them. It’s also true that autoflowers need minimal light. In other words, autos flower according to their life cycle no matter how much you light you provide. However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll completely ignore their lighting requirements. Yes, they will begin flowering with just 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness, but they will perform exceptionally well if you can extend it to 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness. Remember that plants need food too. And food in this context correlates to light, so don’t skimp on it.

Less is more

When it comes to autoflowers, the adage “less is more” is very true. Whether it’s about the training or watering or even nutrients, you’ll do the plant a favor if you don’t overdo it. Actually, most plants perform the best when you don’t spoon-feed them. Agreed, there are an unbelievable amount of fertilizers that promise the moon out there, but autoflowers will perform even if you grow them in super soil.  This doesn’t mean that you should ditch fertilizers. But, you should use them sparingly.

Most autoflowers don’t require a heavy dose of nutrients, but there are exceptions that require nutrients from the very first week. One thing to remember is that plants that grow vigorously need a bit more food. They are voracious eaters, so it’s your job to ensure that their needs are met.

So, now that we have covered how to get the best yields out of your autoflowers, let’s move on to the top 5 high-yield autoflowers that can make your friends turn green with envy.

2) Bruce Banner Auto 

Bruce Banner Auto is like that super-energetic friend who’s the life of any party. You just can’t do without her. A Sativa-dominant hybrid, this plant loads up buds like you’ve never seen before.

The only problem with Bruce Banner Auto is that you’ll always want more. It’s an oversized plant that tastes like freshly picked weed-infused forest berries. It can also crowd your grow room in no time. Plus, she has no attitude problem and will do well even if you feed the most basic of nutrients.

It has the power to make you more creative and you can feel the buzz hitting you within just 30 minutes. It can be used at any time of the day or night, but be aware that it’s got a high amount of THC, and although it’s not an Indica, it can simply knock you out!

3) Pineapple Express Auto

It’s no coincidence that there’s a movie dedicated to this strain. This plant is like an express train on steroids, so ensure that you provide a big container that’s at least 3 gallons. From start to finish, the Pineapple Express is a sight to behold. As a hybrid of both Sativa and Indica, this strain will deliver just the right amount of THC for you to roll on the floor laughing.



What makes this strain stand out apart from its high-yielding ability is that it tastes like pineapples. Although it grows over 110cm, it takes only 10 weeks to finish its cycle. With a yield that can go above 550g/m2 when grown in the right conditions, this plant performs very well in colder climates. It even smells stronger in climates that don’t suit other strains, so there isn’t much left to desire when you have a Pineapple Express Auto in your hands.

4) Gorilla Cookies Auto

Gorilla Cookies Auto starts small but, within a few weeks, it will explode into copious amounts of resin from head to toe. It tastes and smells like delicious earthy cookie dough that’s sure to fire up your taste buds. Originally, Gorilla Cookies Auto had 27% THC, but Fast Buds improved the genetics even more and this extremely potent autoflower now boasts up to 28.5% THC resulting in a marvelous variety that packs punch.

This plant is truly exceptional, thanks to its ability to grow dense buds that are packed from top to bottom. Truth be told, this hybrid strain does well with minimal nutrients. However, it has an insatiable appetite, so make sure you water it well as it can yield up to 650 g/m2.

5) Zkittlez Auto

Candy, anyone? Zkittlez Auto tastes like a combination of exotic fruits that are sweet with a hint of sourness at the same time. It may be tough to pronounce, but it’s not a hard one to grow. This plant has simple needs but delivers an outstanding performance.

Just an easy to grow, solid packed buds. A heavy feeder and can be a bit prone to light burn at the end but otherwise perfection!

It also boasts of an inter-node distance that’s extremely visible, but there’s nothing to worry about since the distance only helps the colas pack some more buds. This strain is Indica-dominant but it doesn’t leave you stuck to the couch. It also has hints of Sativa since most people talk about euphoric sensations as soon as they smoke this one. One aspect that’s immediately apparent with this plant is its capability to load trichomes like no other plant. With so much resin coated on the buds, you’ll have a hard time cutting down this beauty. The colas are so broad that can bend the branches due to their huge yields of up to 500g/m2.


Growing autoflowers can be intimidating, but with Fastbuds’ seed collection created specifically for beginners, you don’t have a thing to worry about. Thanks to sales and discounts, you now have the opportunity to grow as much bud as your heart desires!
