Autoflowering strains are easy to grow because they don’t take quite as much work or finesse to try your hand at growing them. However, this “autopilot” style doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with low-potency plants. In fact, some autoflowering options can reach a potency of up to 27%. Of course, growing autoflowering strains has its pros and cons. One of the biggest benefits that they offer, though, is that they grow quickly. Autoflowers can start to flower as soon as 8 or 9 weeks after germination. This is approximately 30% faster than the time it takes a traditional cannabis plant to mature. If you’re looking for a strain that’s quick to grow, we have you covered. Here, we’re going to give you a full guide to five of the quickest-growing autoflower strains from Fast Buds.

1. Zkittlez Auto

The Zkittlez Auto strain, as you might have guessed from the name, is a Skittles-inspired choice. Every toke comes with a new and interesting flavor ranging from sour grapes to sweet berries to grapefruit and more. It gives any cannabis fan a new, candy flavor experience every time they light up.

The makeup of Zkittlez Auto is mostly Indica with very high THC counts and very low CBD levels. THC levels can be as high as 23%. It offers a very relaxing high including help for aches and pains as well as stress. The time you spend high can vary depending heavily on your tolerance and how much you smoke in a session.

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!

Growing this type of cannabis doesn’t take long either. You can expect to see flowers as little as 9 - 10 weeks and you can cultivate them either indoors or outdoors. You are going to see plenty of yield from a rather large plant. The cannabis plant reaches as high as 70 to 100 cm or 2.2 to 4 feet.

The internodal spacing on these plants also allows for elongated cola formations and plenty of trichomes are going to accumulate on your mature buds. This means that you’re going to see not only a lot of buds to smoke at the end of the maturation process but they’re going to be potent, high-quality buds as well. Just remember that this is an option that needs plenty of fertilizers to reach its full potential. These should be natural fertilizers as well since heavy chemicals are only going to damage the plant and its unique flavor.

2. Blue Dream Auto

The Blue Dream Auto strain is another high THC, low CBD option that has increased in popularity - especially on the west coast scene in the U.S. It’s a hybrid cross between the Blueberry and Haze strains which are popular in their own rights. The former is well-known for pain relief and the latter is one of the most common components of high-quality Sativas. 

Blue Dream Auto keeps the flavor associated with Blueberry and adds a touch of citrus. It also has earthy notes of pine and cedar with a tart sweetness. As for the high you’ll feel with Blue Dream Auto you can expect relaxation and even an almost euphoric feeling. This feeling of relaxation and mood boost comes from a chemical called Limonene. Limonene helps to offer those feelings without the sedation expected from similar cannabis strains. It’ll give you a bit of a dry mouth but it’ll also give you a happy high.

The growth process of the BDM only takes around 9 to 11 weeks. It’ll reach as high as 110 cm or 45 inches. It can be cultivated indoors or outdoors but you’ll want to be careful about water and nutrients. 

It’ll happily lap up both, so you’ll need to give it plenty of water and carefully balance how much nutrients to give it. While it might seem like under-feeding, this plant will only need about a fourth of what most packages of plant food recommend. For this work, you’ll get an output of high-quality, sticky buds.

3. Tropicana Cookies Auto

The Tropicana Cookies Auto is a delicious citrusy hybrid that comes with a low CBD concentration and a very high THC concentration. To be specific, it has a defined composition of about 27% THC and <1% CBD. It has the effects of an Indica-dominant strain with none of the drowsiness of an Indica-dominant variety. The high that the Tropicana Cookies Auto product offers is both in the body and head.

It’s comparable to drinking some quality tequila without the dizziness associated with it. You’ll feel more relaxed after just a drag or two. When you take a drag of the results of the marvelous variety, you’re going to taste a mouth-watering lemon and sandalwood flavor with an overall citrusy touch - but primarily sweet fruity terps.

It has a naturally pleasant taste and smooth smoke. Growing even a little Tropicana Cookies Auto is going to give you plenty of quality bud at the end of the growing process. The yield is about 500 grams per square meter or 2 - 5 ounces per plant outdoors. The germination process only takes around 5 days and you’ll see fully matured plants in about 8 to 9 weeks. An interesting part of the growing process is that you’re going to see a show of colors.

It’ll start light green with a touch of dark green. At 5 weeks you’ll see a red shade start to form and eventually the green will take on a dark, deep purple shade. The plants do get rather tall at measurements as tall as 110 cm or 43 inches. Because of this, it’s a good idea to grow plants in a 10-liter or 3-gallon flowerpot. It’s a more sensitive plant when it comes to pH levels, so you’ll want to keep an eye on that factor fairly frequently.

4. Gorilla Punch Auto

The Gorilla Punch Auto strain has a strong reputation on its own and it took some work for us to match it up with our autoflowering genetics. This Gorilla Punch Auto strain is a high-THC and low-CBD strain that retains all the effects of the original parent strains without the difficulty it takes to grow the original. Before getting into the growth of this strain, let’s look at what you’ll get out of it. It has a taste and aroma of spicy and earthy citrus and smoked wood but you can calm these flavors into a more full-bodied taste with proper curing. As for the high, you’re going to feel a body high first. After a bit, you’re going to see the powerful effects that earn this strain its name.

The more of it you smoke, the more intense these effects will be. It’s a pretty strong choice, so even if you’re a regular smoker, you’ll want to be careful with the amount you smoke when you’re initially trying it. If you’re a fan of an overwhelming experience, it’s an option you won’t want to miss.

As for growth, the Gorilla Punch Auto can reach maturity in as little as 8 - 9 weeks. It reaches a range of 70 to 120 cm or 2.2 to 4 feet. It’s also fairly easy to grow because it’s pretty forgiving. Even if there are pH swings, semi-extreme temperatures, and irregular feeding, you’re still going to end up with a gorgeous and strong end product.  It also works well in a variety of environments so you don’t have to worry as much about soil type and indoor vs. outdoor growing. This makes it a good choice for newbie growers.

5. Banana Purple Punch Auto

Finally, we have the Banana Purple Punch Auto. This is an original strain that Fast Buds’ breeders created recently and it packs a punch. You can tell just from looking at it thanks to its large buds and visible resin covering its surface. It’s a 75% Indica-dominant hybrid and it produces large yields of up to 550g/m2 - among the largest quantities that Fast Buds offers. The strain is rather potent as well with as much as a 26% THC level. So, it’s another choice that you’ll want to test the waters with before smoking a lot. This intense high is one you’re going to initially feel in your head more than your body. The Sativa side give you plenty of energy and once it fades you’ll feel the strong Indica heritage will deeply relax your whole body, leaving you with a clear head and a body high.

As for the flavor, it has a candy gummy-like aroma with a hint of fruity terps. Despite its strong nature, you can expect a smooth drag from gentle smoke with a candy-like aroma. Growing it isn’t difficult for this heavy-yielding plant either. You’ll start to see flowering as early as 3 to 4 weeks and you can expect your buds to be ready for harvest at only 8 weeks.  Since the bud-to-leaf ratio is so high, the process of trimming the buds is also going to be a breeze which saves you a lot of time. With yields of as much as 450 to 550 grams per square meter of these 80 to 120 cm or 31 to 47 inches tall plants, you aren’t going to run out of Banana Purple Punch Auto anytime soon after harvest.

6. In Conclusion

If you’re looking for top-shelf, fast crops without sacrificing the quality and quantity of the harvest, autoflowering cannabis strains are the best way to go. As you may know, autoflowering cannabis seeds do not need a different light cycle to trigger flowering, which means they will grow and flower outdoors no matter the season and indoors under any light cycle, from 12/12 to 20/4, making them the best choice for growers who want low-maintenance crops with a quick turn-around time. Make sure to check our catalog with more than 50 different autoflowering strains that will allow you to have 30% faster harvests no matter the climate and season.
