The 5 Easiest Marijuana Strains For Beginners to Grow

If you’re looking at growing your own weed, it might seem fairly simple to start. While that is true to some degree, it’s also important to know that some strains are easier than others to grow. For example, some have more delicate tendencies than others, or might even be prone to mold where other strains aren’t. A few things you might want to ask prior to beginning, such as inquiring about which strains you are able to miss watering for a day or which ones are highly susceptible to shifts in environment?

If you hadn’t considered these questions, that’s okay! Our cannabis dispensary in Port Hueneme is here to help you sort this information out and make the growing process just a little bit simpler. Keep reading to learn more about the five easiest strains to grow!

Strain #1: Blue Dream


Perhaps one of the most popular strains available on the market, Blue Dream is a total classic for all cannabis enthusiasts. Originating in Northern California, Blue Dream is a cross between Blueberry and Haze, two well-known parent strains. Typically, it has high yields, growing big and tall thanks to its sativa-dominant roots. For the best results, be sure to build a scrog, or a structure, to go around the plant. Scrogs are usually made of PVC pipe, as it is weather-resistant and durable. Think of it like a cage that goes around a tomato plant. 

If you are a newbie in the realm of cannabis growing, Blue Dream is the perfect starter strain. This is due mostly to how resilient it is, continuing to grow even if you forget to water it one day or go a little too hard on the nutrient feedings. The best part is that it can even handle cold nights, and grows well in both indoor and outdoor settings. So, for the most part, no matter what climate you live in, you are sure to have a thriving cannabis plant.

Strain #2: Wedding Cake


No, we’re not talking about the delicious treat served at wedding receptions. But we are, however, referring to one of the newest strains available. This rising star in the cannabis world, Wedding Cake, is a Cookies cross that is Indica-dominant and grows short and stout. You will still see quality yields and dense buds, though. Just make sure that you stay on top of pruning to help prevent molding along the way – that would certainly feel like rain on your wedding day!  

One of the reasons it is dubbed Wedding Cake is because of the trichomes on top that appear frosty and sticky, like a glaze. These are also quite fragrant, smelling of citrus and vanilla that is really appealing and sweet, as any treat should be. So while this one is slightly more difficult to upkeep, the pay off is absolutely worth i

Strain #3: Super Lemon Haze


If you like things that taste a bit citrusy, then you will want to check into growing Super Lemon Haze. It is a cross between two major contenders: Super Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk. Due to the strong amount of sativa that exists in its origins, this cannabis plant will do better in warmer climates, bonus points if there is some humidity. However, it is still pretty versatile and can grow in most settings. 

While it is low-maintenance in terms of attention, Super Lemon Haze will need some space to grow. Like the parent strain Lemon Skunk, this cannabis strain will want to stretch out. Of course, scrogging, or building some sort of support system, will help, though it is not entirely necessary. Also, don’t expect to jump up and harvest right away. You will need a bit of patience, as it takes Super Lemon Haze about nine weeks to flower, yet another sign of its sativa origins.

Strain #4: GMO Cookies


Unlike the last two strains mentioned above, GMO Cookies brings an odd yet satisfying combination of scents to the game: garlic and cookies. Now, we know what you are thinking, but this new strain is becoming the talk of the town for a reason. A cross between two big-name strains, GSC and Chemdog, GMO Cookies has some unique traits:

  • Light green buds with orange hairs
  • Dense and sticky
  • Produces a higher yield
  • Trichome levels perfect for pressing hash

Another ideal trait about it is that it can handle growing both indoors and outdoors. However, once again, make sure to execute patience when growing, as it takes about nine to ten weeks to flower and be ready for harvest. It will be worth the wait though, as GMO Cookies brings a new flavor as well as a quality high.

Strain #5: Sour OG


If you are on the hunt for something truly outside of the box to grow, but is still relatively simple in terms of growing, we suggest testing the waters with Sour OG. Skunk, spice, fuel, and hints of lemon and pine all combine forces to create something truly special. A combination of OG Kush and Sour Diesel, this will be a strain you will want to try.

Compared to the other strains listed above, this one will have a fairly quicker yield time of around 8 weeks. Just make sure that this particular plan had a trellis and a scrog for maximum yields. Again, humidity is best for this strain and allows for the production of denser buds. All in all, Sour OG is a great choice if you want something that is both potent and features a unique blend of flavors.

Millions of Americans struggle with getting proper rest despite how essential it is for our health. It is no secret that our bodies need sleep to keep our brains and other organs fully functioning, our memory and cognition in good shape, and in order to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. 

As we all know, this doesn’t always happen. Whether it’s a night here and there, or a chronic or recurring issue, it can leave us feeling drained, affecting our overall quality of life. In fact, missing out on sleep can be downright dangerous, and prolonged insomnia can lead to long-term health issues such as diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, depression, and more. That is a startling fact, to say the least.

However, if you are someone who struggles with sleep, don’t worry! We have some amazing products lined up from our cannabis dispensary in Port Hueneme, along with our other locations, that we recommend to help you get the rest you deserve.

It is a blend between Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and Afghani, combining dark berry notes accented with a distinct grape-like aroma, so you know it’s bursting with flavor.

All three work in tandem to help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling refreshed. Skip the hangover, groggy feeling that you can get from those over-the-counter, drugstore products.

 

Nighttime Berry Lime

It was Mary Poppins who told us that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, but with Cannabis Quencher’s new Nighttime Berry Lime drink, that helping of sweetner is totally unnecessary. A capful of this mocktail is not only delicious and sure to help you fall asleep, but it also works to support pain relief and relieve inflammation.

Midnight Mint

We’ve all been there – the hunt for the perfect midnight snack to satisfy our sweet tooth.

This chocolate bar isn’t just your run-of-the-mill convenience store treat, no! It is packed with CBN, perfect for helping you fall asleep and stay asleep.

What is an Infused Pre-Rolled Joint?

When you look at the wide array of cannabis products on the market, one can understand why it may feel overwhelming to navigate. There are hundreds of brands producing a variety of different products that appeal to people of all backgrounds. Many of us wonder – What product is right for me? How do I choose? 

When shopping for a product it’s important to do your research, ask questions and always buy from a legal business. Learning how to navigate this industry takes time and willingness to learn. For those looking to dip their toes in the water or something they can enjoy on the go – pre-rolls are a good place to start.

Pre-rolls have always been a popular option, especially for those who appreciate the convenience of having their favorite flower perfectly rolled and ready to smoke. Plus, they are easy to take out and enjoy with only a lighter. Quick, discrete, and perfectly dosed, pre-rolls are a great choice.

While it can be fun to experiment with different types of bongs and vaping methods, sometimes all you want is the ease of enjoying a perfectly rolled joint that will burn evenly and give you the perfect high. Now, thanks to infusions, you can amplify this experience with an enhanced version of your favorite pre-roll and really diversify your cannabis experience. Combining together a blend of flower and resin, you are able to maximize not only the potency and quality of your high but the flavor and smoothness of it as well.  

So, what exactly is an infused pre-roll? Let’s take a closer look! 

Infused Pre-Rolls: The Breakdown

The aim or goal for the common pre-roll is that it is perfectly crafted by a professional and contains the best flower that the dispensary or shop has to offer. It is designed to provide a balanced, enjoyable smoke without any of the hassles that can come with having to roll it yourself. 

An infused joint goes just a step beyond that and exists to include add-ins or ingredients to help boost both flavor and the type of high. This can include hash, oil, kief, a combination of strains or flavors, or even diamonds (the cannabis derived ones that is). They can be as small as a half gram or be made up of multiple grams, with a price range starting at $9 and working up to over $100. Whatever kind of combination you’re after, it can be purchased! 

A popular option includes both a THC and CBD combination infusion, especially when being used for medicinal purposes. These tend to have a higher concentration of CBD resins, oil, and strains to better harness the healing qualities of CBD. If you find the right mix for you, you can both receive your desired head high as well as the high you want for your body, too.

Of course, you can craft an infusion roll at home, but just like when you go to a professional bartender and your drink always tastes better, the same concept applies here. Let the pros take care of this one and just kick back and enjoy the enhanced flavor and high!

Why the hype?

With these infused pre-rolls gaining traction and sparking in popularity, you may stop and ask yourself: so why the hype? According to data brought forth by Marijuana Business Daily, pre-rolls sales skyrocketed during the pandemic. Prior to COVID-19, pre-roll sales made approximately $640 million. By the end of 2020, those numbers had made a significant leap to $942 million. 

The pandemic affected these sales because rather than attending parties and smoking with friends, people were opting to purchase professional pre-rolls, especially if they were partaking alone. This helped to minimize any waste or over-rolling. It also allowed customers to sample a larger variety of bud, rather than having to buy one particular flower and keep smoking that until it was gone.

Infused rolls help accomplish the same thing. You are able to try out many different infusion blends, finding the right product and mix for you for any particular occasion. If you need something more on the medical side, you can get something with a higher CBD potency. If you’re wanting to experiment with flavors, you can purchase something with a particular wax or oil add-in. 

Just like the magic of a build your own burrito place, you can select the perfect combination for yourself!
