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 18 to 24 hours in the flowering period. A few hours of extra light 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 8 weeks even if you 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 8 - 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.
