After years of wait, the cannabis community can finally rejoice, thanks to many countries legalizing the ever-green herb. Dispensaries are now experiencing demand at an all-time high, and with authorities accepting the medical benefits of cannabis, it’s the perfect time to smoke some top-quality ganja.

It’s even better if you could grow it at home, especially considering the rates of the nugs sold at dispensaries. Growing cannabis at home not only brings absolute joy, but it makes you patient as well. It’s cheap as heck, barring a one-time investment required for the first setup. Also, you have the liberty to choose different types of strains introduced in the market at an affordable price.

Sure, you need to wait a bit to harvest those beautiful buds, but it’s totally worth it. And now that you have different types of autoflowers flooding the community, the waiting time is reduced significantly. If you’ve never grown an automatic or autoflower strain, there are many reasons to switch immediately.

Why grow Autoflowers in the first place?

If you’re used to growing photoperiod strains, it’s natural for you to ask this question. In fact, many beginners are hesitant to try autoflowering strains because there’s a dearth of information. However, try to separate the facts from myths and you’ll end up with a multitude of reasons to choose autos over photos.

  • Autoflowers save you money

Autoflower seeds are cheaper than photoperiod strains, but that’s not all. Since they are “automatic” and begin to flower irrespective of the light cycle, you’ll not have to worry about shifting between separate flowering and vegetative rooms.

They only need about 14-16 hours of light per day, but some growers produce better results even with 12 hours in the flowering period. A few hours of light reduction per day may not seem like a lot at the beginning, but it counts in the long run.

  • Autoflowers are fast

Autoflowers are meant to perform fast. It’s like a quick fix to growing marijuana whenever you feel like it. As they are structured to grow fast and flower even faster, you can harvest the buds within just 10-11 weeks even if you let the plants grow a bit longer in the vegetative stage.

Every day matters when growing autoflowers, and growers avoid autoflowers to a certain extent for this very reason, but the newly developed autoflowering strains are quite easy to grow. It may intimidate you at first, but it becomes a piece of cake once you understand the fundamentals.

Basically, you’d have harvested an entire crop before of autoflowers before your photoperiod plant even goes into the flowering stage! What do you have to say to that?!

  • Autoflowers also yield well

Autoflowering cannabis strains were created when the Ruderalis – a species of Cannabis – was cross-bred with certain Sativa and Indica strains. Granted, the yields weren’t impressive when they were newly introduced many years ago; however, things have changed now.

Many autoflowers have the ability to yield at least 400-500 grams of pure bud per meter square when grown indoors. And if you consider that you can harvest two batches at the same time you’d harvest one batch of photoperiod strains, growing autoflowers is a no-brainer.

Despite all the myths surrounding autoflowers, many cannabis growers appreciate them since it’s nothing short of magic to harvest sweet nugs within just 10 weeks. Newly introduced autoflowers are already changing the game, and you can bet that they are here to stay.

If you’re constantly looking out to buy cannabis strains that are fairly new, here’s a list of the top 5 new automatic weed strains that are capturing the curiosity of every grower.

1) CBD Crack

Since Green Crack is such an amazing plant, we knew that a cross-pollination would result in an even better strain. And the fact that we have so many strains with high THC made a CBD-rich strain sound brilliant, especially when combined with a delicious plant like Green Crack. Like its parent, CBD crack can be enjoyed at any time.

With 7 percent CBD and a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD, this lovely strain produces up to 250 grams of marijuana indoors. If you’re fascinated with CBD strains due to the medicinal benefits, the CBD Crack is a must try. The effects are mellow and you’re guaranteed a high that induces very little cerebral and couch-lock effects.

As a hybrid of both Sativa and Indica, the CBD Crack possesses the best characteristics you can expect. With her tasting like an exotic juicy mango, the CBD Crack is a favorite among many medical cannabis users.

2) Gorilla Glue

The original Gorilla Glue #4 has quite a history, and when coupled with an autoflowering strain, she’s tough to beat. She’s quite capable of generating a body buzz that can make your legs weak and wobbly. But she’s also known to induce an extravagant cerebral high that can send you to outer space with a one-way ticket.

And the yields…oh, my…she grows like a monster ready to devour all the nutrients you can spare. Known as the King of the cannabis jungle, this strain has a tendency to pack loads of buds. Even containers that hold about 12 gallons aren’t just enough when grown outdoors.

Although she leans a bit toward the Indica side, this strain will fill you with euphoric feelings. She may sound delicate, but when it comes to packing buds, she’s just the opposite. Indeed, the Cream Cookies can grow into massive plants producing heavy colas.

She’s also a voracious feeder, so feed her with the best nutrients and she’ll reward you with buds smelling of – what else – cream and cookies! Remember all the biscotti cookies that made your mouth water? Yeah, she’s very similar. Plus, she gives out fresh citrus flavors coupled with earthy and woody aromas enough to melt a perfumer’s heart.

Whether you grow outdoors or indoors, you can expect a generous amount of resin oozing from every bud. She’s gorgeous and versatile, making her one of the top new automatic weed strains we have ever introduced.

4) Zkittlez Auto

If Cream Cookies Auto excited you, wait until you meet this sensational new girl – the Zkittlez Auto. By crossing the original Zkittlez with one of our own autoflowering strains, we have been able to reproduce the Zkittlez Auto that resembles the original in every manner.

The best part of smoking this strain is she’s too sweet to handle. With flavors similar to chocolate, candy, and berries, she’s a wonderful blend, making her both sweet and sour. And the fragrance is just enough to make your neighbor suspicious, so get that carbon filter ready even before you welcome her home.

Zkittlez grows up to 40 inches, but don’t underestimate the yields that go beyond 300 grams of bud per meter square. She’s more of an Indica, but rather than forcing you to be glued to the couch, Zkittlez dispenses an effect very similar to Sativas.

5) Crystal Meth

Top 5 New Automatic Weed Strains: Crystal Meth Auto by Fast Buds

Despite the notorious name, you’ll fall in love with this strain. Crystal Meth is an autoflowering cannabis strain meant for beginners. She won’t fuss around, and you’ll be harvesting buds before you know it. And talking of buds, the color show she puts up has to be mentioned.

She starts like any ordinary strain with deep green leaves and white pistils. But as time wears on, a conglomeration of brilliant colors including yellow, neon-green, purple and red will mesmerize you. With buds that can be harvested in just 70-75 days, the Crystal Meth is so gorgeous you’ll find it difficult to peel your eyes away from her.

This strain tends to focus all her energy on one main cola that grows extremely huge. Therefore, a few training techniques meant to provide more light to the bottom parts of the plant are recommended. She’s a compact plant with no issues, but an extra dose of nutrients will help her perk up and grow faster.

The THC content is very high with more than 20 percent. Truly exceptional, the Crystal Meth is a must in your cannabis collection if you have a soft corner for strains that are stunningly beautiful.
