If you have a need for speed, here are some tips.
A need for speed
It should go without having to say it, but if you want to speed up your grow cycle, you need autoflowering seeds.
This speed does have a drawback namely, yields will be smaller and the THC and CBD content will be lower.
But,with genes this strong, you’ll have enough cannabinoids for a great session.
If you’re sticking to a certain timeline, you’ll need to bring the grow indoors. With lighting cycles of 18 hours on and 6 hours off for the vegetative stage, and a 12/12 hour split to initiate the flowering stage.
This will help speed the grow cycles, but as mentioned, there is a trade-off of crop size. You can get around this issue by using the SCROG method.
Now, let’s talk about the our fast flowering cannabis strains!
