As the warm, sunny weather approaches, it’s time to start thinking about your cultivation strategy for Spring! With hundreds of brilliantly bred varieties to choose from, it can be tough to narrow down what you want to plant, no matter how you cultivate. 

As we all know, time is money. So here is our list of fast-flowering cannabis strains to give you a well-rounded harvest and outperform the Croptober competition. 

Lemon Cherry Gelato: A strain that tastes just as good as it sounds! This fast-flowering energetic hybrid is known for soothing anxiety and stress with its high 25% percent THC levels. It has a citrusy taste and aroma, which will help you get your final product sold and set it apart from other average varieties. It has been said that this well-rounded powerhouse has a quick flowering time of only 8-9 weeks! Its minimal maintenance, adaptability to humid and warmer climates, and easy-to-grow manner make Lemon Cherry Gelato a simple choice to start your season off successfully. 

Apple Fritter: Okay, we love this strain! Apple Fritter is a tasty cross of Sour Apple and Animal Cookies that is both powerful and relaxing. It’s a 50/50 balanced hybrid that yields well, smells fabulous, and looks amazing! Apple Fritter gives consumers a creative and uplifting high and finishes up gracefully at the beginning of October. With an 8-10 week flowering period and high THC levels on top of its flavorful smoke and popularity, Apple Fritter is a must-plant this season! 

Runtz: We simply couldn’t leave Runtz out of the lineup this year. Consumers love it, and cultivators love to grow it. Its versatility in cultivation, from indoor to greenhouse and outdoor, makes it a versatile strain that you will want to plant all around the garden. It is no secret that Runtz is a top seller year in and year out because it is a brilliantly bred cross between Zkittlez and Gelato. Known for its sweet and fruity flavor, its high THC content, and its flowering time of 8-9 weeks. Runtz continues to take priority in cultivators’ and consumers’ hearts. 

Gelato Auto: Gelato Auto is the ultimate California girl and one of the most popular cannabis strains all over the world when it comes to potency and flavor. It’s perfect for all hash and other concentrates as well as flower, which aids in versatility and distribution. This is an extremely potent and citrusy strain, and some say it can finish up in as soon as seven weeks! Airing on 8-9 weeks at times, Gelato Auto is legit as s***, with its heavy buds and a name that speaks for itself. 

Orange Sherbet Auto: We thought Orange Sherbert Auto was a great strain to add to this year’s “ Fast Growing Cannabis Strains for Spring” list. Orange Sherbert Auto is a cross between Orange Creamsicle and Sherbet and is known for its sweet and citrusy flavor. It has a high THC content and is often used for relaxation and stress relief. Orange Sherbert Auto is one of those auto-flowering hybrids that is great for first-time growers. It has a consistently high yield, is low maintenance, and will finish flowering in 9-10 weeks. It is important to note that this is the expected time frame of completion from seed to harvest! 

Bruce Banner Auto: Bruce Banner Auto is a strikingly huge and heavy-hitting strain. It is important to have versatility in your crop when you are growing at a larger scale. It is also important to have high-yielding strains that are still fast to flower. Bruce Banner Auto has consistent yields that can reach up to 450 – 600 gr/m2. It is a very tall auto-flowering hybrid that is excellent for those wanting to make the most out of every single seed or growers that can only have one plant per grow cycle. With a flowering time of 10-11 weeks, Bruce Banner Auto is a good genetic to have regardless of the size of your grow this Spring. 

Northern Lights: This is a potent Indica-dominant strain with just a touch of sativa lineage. It typically hovers around 20 percent THC with about 0.1 percent CBD. It’s popular among all types of consumers and medical patients struggling with anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain. You might have heard of Northern Lights through the grapevine a number of times because of its fame, resilience, and fast flowering nature. That being said, if you have never personally grown Northern Lights, this is your sign to take advantage of this special Indica-dominant strain. You won’t regret it. 

Sour Lemon MAC: This strain tests super-high for Jack Herer’s main terpene—terpinolene. This is a very rare terpene in cannabis with such multidimensional beauty. Imagine rolling all our favorite terpenes into one! From flowery to citrus to pine, Sour Lemon MAC is such a unique, fast flower strain to lean into this season. This, in turn, brings versatility when it comes time to harvest. Leaving an open door for creativity and end-of-product options to expand your brand and consumer base in a dynamic industry. 

Papaya crosses: We wanted to end this list with a strain that is refreshing, vibrant, and new. It is, after all, Spring! That said, Papaya crosses are the perfect fast-flowering choice for all those rosin dabs and live resin consumers. They have a papaya smell and taste, indica hybrid effects, and the frostiest trichomes on the planet. Lean into some Papaya genetics and get consumers in the mood for a refreshing smoke!

The Bottom Line… 

Of course, we will forever have our fast flowering Chemdog, OG Kushes, Sour Diesels, and Glues and there are few varieties that can match their bite and power. Although in this dynamic industry you have to stay ahead of the curve and accept the change that comes with cultivation.

Remember when choosing which strains to plant this Spring, it is so important to consider factors like THC content, flavor, versatility, and resilience. Keep your flowering time short, and get your name out there this season! Happy planting!
