Is anybody else ever amazed at the technology, innovation, and resilience it takes to grow good marijuana indoors? Prohibition is the mother of invention it seems. Whether you're growing indoors in order to keep things discreet, or you just don't have a garden to plant seeds, we're running down the five best autoflower strains to grow indoors.
While these strains grow well indoors, all Fast Buds strains perform well outdoors as well. These varieties just have a few traits that an indoor grower might value, like discretion, grow time, or size.
Our shortest strain is perfect for space-restricted grow environments and it's an indica powerhouse as well. When you hear old hippies complaining that, "weed these days is just too damn strong," they're talking about Rhino Ryder.
This is a cross between two MMJ legends, White Rhino and Medicine Man. Both parents have been perennial favorites in California dispensaries for ages, and are known for their stereotypical indica high, and Rhino Ryder continues the tradition.
The strong effects pair well with Rhino Ryder's tendency to grow short and wide. It's the perfect plant for those the Cali medical feel but have limited space or need to keep things discreet.
Fast Buds fans have turned our Gorilla Glue Auto into an international sensation. This top-selling strain grows dense, resinous buds coated in white, sticky, and surprisingly strong resin, hence the name.
While on the larger side, Gorilla Glue thrives under all kinds of indoor lighting. This strain gives off a delicious piney flavor when smoked, and produces a social if somewhat sedating buzz, that's perfect for chilling with friends or alone. With a THC level of up to 24%, Gorilla Glue offers the best bang for the buck if you're looking to produce strong bud fast.
Another Cali sensation, Girl Scout Cookies has taken the world by storm, becoming popular in countries where they don't know a 'Thin Mint' from a 'Tagalong.'
Consistency is GSC's super power. No matter your indoor setup, this strain produces impressive buds and a functional, yet giddy, euphoria perfect for good times with friends and family. It's a low-maintenance strain that's easy to grow. That's not to mention its potency. At 22% THC, it's easy to see why Girl Scout Cookies is one of Fast Buds' most popular strains.

There's nothing quite like CBD Crack. The effects you'll feel from this strain are like no other. It's signature 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD produces a relaxing, mellow high like you've never felt before. CBD Crack's friendly effects pair well with its short stature and typically short growing time that make it ideal for growing indoors. It's not overwhelming, you won't get couch lock, you're not going to tell your friends. "I'm soooo high duuude..." five times in a row. But you will enjoy it, and come back for more. We promise you that.
The quiet sensation. In ten years, you'll hear stoners bragging about how they smoked Stardawg before it was cool. Currently this short growing, heavy yielding, indica-leaning hybrid is unknown in many places, including our beloved California. However, in the UK, Stardawg is the most sought after strain. At trade shows around Europe, Brits come up to the Fast Buds crew and wax poetic about Stardawg's heavy-hitting effects. Some even call it, "the new Cheese," in reference to the UK's most popular native strain and hometown favorite, Cheese. The picture these growers paint is a simple one: Stardawg is a heavy-hitting hybrid that grows massive buds on a stout frame, and stoners from Edinburg to London can't get enough.
While these are the strains we've chosen to highlight, all Fast Buds strains are designed to grow both indoors and out, and you can't go wrong with any of them. Don't forget to check out our rundown of the best outdoor strains, and sign up for our newsletter to get 20% off your first order.
