When growing pot you’ve got so many things to take into consideration. From lighting, watering and maintaining the right temperature to curing, harvesting and trimming them correctly. All these things are essential to produce the most quality bud. But what if you miss a step along the process, you give them too much light, or even worse you try to grow your seeds in the wrong conditions?

That bud isn’t going to come out as planned!

In this article, we’ve brought to you a few different strains that could make the process of growing slightly more simpler. As the name says it, autoflowering cannabis plants automatically produce blooms without the need to regulate light levels to trigger bud production.

#1 Amnesia Haze Automatic

This strain is descended almost entirely from the Sativa Family and has relatively high levels of THC. You know, the component in marijuana that produces the euphoric high. This strain is also used medically and is known to combat depression and stimulate an appetite.

Amnesia Haze is quite a large plant and will reward you with anywhere from 40-150 grams of super awesome bud. Furthermore, it takes only around 3 months to get that produce out.

Amnesia Haze Automatic is a crossbreed between Amnesia, Champagne Haze, The Bomb, Ultra Haze and many others names that are quite popular.

One of the major benefits of the Automatic version is that it cuts the time it takes to flower. Unlike the original Haze, which can take around 12 weeks, the Automatic version will take around 80 days from seed to bud. And after that, you’ll be left with approximately 40-150 grams.

This strain is clearly a favorite in the medical cannabis world due to its clear Indica dominance. This plant is great for indoor production, yielding a usual height of only half a meter or just over one-and-a-half feet with the occasional plant growing twice this tall. Once fully grown, it will yield around 190-240 grams of lemony-tasting buds – and it takes only just over a month to reach its maximum potential.

Known for helping pain and often used for anxiety, the automatic version, is a new cross of classic Dutch strain, White Widow. Similar to the original White Widow, the automatic version is smaller in size and slightly more physical stoned effect. It also has a sweet and sour, citrus-like aroma and taste, which is similar to the original but not as strong.

#3 Quick One

Originally from Canada, this strain is the ultimate fast-growing, low-maintenance strain. It was created from a cross between Williams Wonder, Northern Lights and Ruderalis.

The plants have a fresh, herbal, almost citrus-like aroma. The taste is mild but good, and comes with a pleasant physically stoned effect.
