Modern autoflower strains Like Fast Buds' are flower-making machines. A large plant can net you up to a kilo of dried product ready for smoking, edibles, and concentrates. However, not all autos yield the same. The earliest strains, like the much-famed lowrider, produced barely a full ounce, while Fast Buds' selectively bred strains yield much more. Today we're going to cover the top 5 best-yielding autoflower strains in our catalog.

1. Gorilla Glue Auto

Gorilla Glue Auto, one of our best-selling strains packs all the famed effects of the original GG #4 into an autoflower powerhouse that can yield up to 450-600 g/m2, like the specimen pictured above.

Outdoor-grown Gorilla Glue Auto is one of the largest autoflowers you’ll ever see, but its far from the only high-yielder. The plant below from one of our growers from instagram is no slouch either. Not bad for a time investment for 9-10 weeks from seed to harvest!

2. Six Shooter Auto

Six Shooter owes its name to its massive bud production and the thickness of its colas. This bushy Sativa-dominant hybrid goes from looking like an empty frame around week 5 to a 'fully-loaded' flowering plant with grams and grams of good stuff to harvest.

3. Orange Sherbet Auto

Another bushy Sativa-dominant hybrid like the Six Shooter Auto. Orange Sherbet Auto takes its name from its delicious super sour citrusy resin. Before harvesting these buds look like the Sierra Nevada mountains topped with snow.

And yield isn't the only thing Six Shooter has going for it. It's a resinous Sativa with a kick perfect for physical activities and daytime use. It also made our Top 5 List of our Best Outdoor Strains.

My wife says it doesn’t smell like weed at all when I smoke it on the porch. All she can smell is some kind of citrus fruit.

4. Amnesia Zkittlez Auto

Another Sativa-dominant hybrid autoflower (noticing a theme here?), Amnesia Zkittlez Auto likes to grow tall and packs on some extremely dense, aromatic buds during the flowering stage. Then they explode with growth once flowering comes and produce the dense, pistil-lined buds that any Cali dispensary veteran would recognize as top-shelf cannabis flower

Amnesia Zkittlez Auto.

This plant can produce up to 450-600 g/m2 indoors and an outstanding 200g/plant outdoors! Our autoflowering Amnesia Zkittlez Auto features all the same effects and flavors of the original parent plants, but there is one difference. Fast Buds' Amnesia Zkittlez Auto takes their flavors to the extreme and provides an extremely powerful mix of spicy and lemon terps.

Mine flourished under the most adverse grow conditions this last season when every other plant was plagued by bud rot and powdery mildew.

5. Bruce Banner Auto

One of our highest-yielding Sativa-dominant hybrid autoflowers, and one of our largest plants overall, Fast Buds autoflowering strain Bruce Banner Auto like to stretch and produces green buds with a mouth-watering mix of berry and diesel flavors. It's an energizing Sativa-dominant hybrid, but not as an overwhelming head rush like the one you might expect from a strain like Six Shooter Auto, or our own Mexican Airlines Auto. It offers similar amounts of bud to our Amnesia Zkittlez Auto.

6. Honorable Mention: Gorilla Cookies Auto

We've got a lot of high-yielding strains, and we couldn't end this Top Five without a shout-out to one strain that didn't quite cut. This extremely potent cookie dough-flavored hybrid leans slightly towards the Sativa side, but it won't set you on edge as it’s a 55% Indica-dominant hybrid. Instead, it offers a social and amorous energy that slowly slides into blissful relaxation.

Growers often tell us that Gorilla Cookies Auto is their favorite highest-yielding strain, and while that's the case, generally speaking, all the other strains mentioned in this article offer unique traits that can’t be found in the Gorilla Cookies Auto.
