- Girl Scout Cookies
Aptly named, Girl Scout Cookies is a strain of cannabis which offers 21% THC content, and this helps to kickstart and boost your mental agility while still keeping the body cool, calm and relaxed. This strain is known for offering extreme euphoria, while keeping you sharp and alert when you need it most.
The Girl Scout Cookies strain enjoys a laid-back, Mediterranean climate to grow in peace and quiet. They are disease resistant, parasite avoidant, and fast-growing. As an added bonus they even smell great!
- Northern Lights
As bright and colorful as their namesake, Northern Lights cannabis is bright, dramatic and bold. It offers a spicy taste, and the chance to take your dreams to a whole other level of psychedelic goodness thanks to 0% Sativa genetics. With an 18% THC content, you can stay calm and relaxed while enjoying a higher level of thinking and creativity.
Northern Lights enjoys – not surprisingly – the outdoors, and is famous for being super easy to grow both indoors and outside.
If you are already familiar with growing cannabis, and want something a little more challenging, take your cannabis journey to the next level with Skywalker OG. With a whopping 26% THC content, this is powerful, psychedelic and transformative, leaving you feeling strong, smart and ready to take on the Empire.
This is a strain which thrives in the great outdoors, and should be grown in dry air – too much moisture can encourage unwanted mildew.
Once of the most famous and classic indica strains, Afghan offers 205 THC and 0% Sativa, allowing users to blend high levels of euphoria with a cozy, chilled relaxation. Even better, this is a strain which is super easy to grow both in both an indoor and an outdoor space.
