Outdoor growers love Fast Buds' autoflowers. Maybe it's the nine to ten-week flowering time. Maybe it's the massive yields. Maybe it's the Gorilla Glue. Whatever the reason, we hear from growers in equatorial Africa to Sweeden every day who love their results with Fast Buds.
While all our strains grow well outdoors thanks to their autoflower heritage, some strains grow larger or perform slightly differently in outdoor environments. For those of you lucky enough to be able to cultivate outdoors, we'll run down the top five best strains for growing under the sun. If you missed it, we ran recently ran down our Top 5 Best Indoor Autoflower Strains.
A true cultural sensation, Fast Buds' autoflowering take on the legendary Gorilla Glue #4 remains our most popular strain, even a year after its release. At cannabis fairs, growers descend upon the Fast Buds' booth trying to buy out our supply before anyone else!
Gorilla Glue reached its current popularity for a single reason; it's damn good weed. Our autoflower GG hits the spot whether you're chilling by yourself or with friends.
This strain can grow to over a meter in height, a true giant by autoflower standards, and when it hits flowering it packs on grams and grams of dense, rock hard buds. Fast Buds' autoflower genetics mean this strain is a bit hardier than its photoperiod ancestor, making it perfect for growing outdoors.
"It's the new cheese!" That's what growers keep telling us about Stardawg at shows across the continent. To hear them tell it, this short and durable strain is quickly becoming a household name amongst stoners across the UK, replacing cheese and the vaguely defined "skunk" as the most sought after strain.
Stardawg is perfect for outdoor growing in colder climates like the UK, and northern Europe. It's hardy, grows short, packs on the buds, and hits THC levels exceeding 20%. As a total package, Stardawg can't be beaten.
This Fast Buds original likes to grow big, with towering colas that look like snow-covered mountains, hence the name California Snow.
This sativa dominant hybrid explodes with high-THC buds under the summer sun, and was created with outdoor growers in mind. It's a favorite for outdoor Fast Buds fans in every climate. If you're looking a low-maintenance yet strong sativa, don't miss California Snow.
If you want a high yield, look no further than Six-Shooter. This sativa giant is our heaviest yielder. It's also our second largest strain, reaching nearly 1.4 meters in height.
Like California Snow, Six Shooter produces giant colas of energetic flower flowing with resin. This cross between our sativa heavy hitters Mexican Airlines and Crystal Meth flowers in nine to ten weeks when grown outdoors, meaning that, even in a cold climate, a dedicated grower could squeeze in several crops over the course of a summer.
The perfect outdoor autoflower. Tangie'Matic is a rare non-Cali Fast Buds strain, that takes the always popular Tangie and turns it into a giant outdoor autoflower powerhouse.
Easily our largest strain, Tangie'Matic doesn't quite hit the heights of Six Shooter, but makes up for it in bulk and bud production. We've seen more than a few Tangie'Matics overgrow their tents. The growers weren't prepared because autoflowers don't get this big. Well, they didn't until Tangie'Matic came along.
Like our other giant outdoor strains, Tangie'Matic is a sativa dominant hybrid. Unlike our other sativas, the stimulating effects are minimal, making this a perfect anytime strain. It won't leave you wired or locked on the couch.
While these strains are a great starting point, don't limit yourself to them. Fast Buds' other Sativas like Mexican Airlines and Crystal Meth grow well outside as quite well. If you're a fan of hybrids, Girl Scout Cookies performs well in any environment. And if you're looking for a night time indica, our newest strain, Cream Cookies, might have the magic you're looking for.
