With as many cannabis strains available on the market, it can be challenging to make the final decision on what specific seed genetics will yield the absolute most quantity when it comes time to harvest your precious plants.
Each cannabis strain can yield significantly different results depending on the growing environment, nutrients, lighting, water, etc. Assuming ideal cultivation conditions, cannabis strains yielding the most include Chocolope, Amnesia Haze, Super Skunk, Gold Leaf, and several others.
Let’s dive in below and see what cannabis strains yield most in both indoor and outdoor growing conditions.
Super Lemon Haze
Super Lemon Haze requires a moderate amount of experience to grow despite being highly resistant to disease.
This particular cannabis strain has a common yield of approximately 19 oz/m2 when growing indoors and over 15 oz per plant (or more) for outdoor cultivation.
Super Lemon Haze is a Sativa strain that took the first prize for three consecutive years at the High Times Cannabis Cup (1997, 1998, & 1999).
Super Lemon Haze strain is made by crossing Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze.
It’s recommended to grow the strain in relatively high humidity to avoid the leaves’ pores from closing.
With a recommended warm temperature of 70-80F to help growth by maximizing nutrient absorption through the roots.
For novice growers, Super Skunk could be the best choice, especially if you plan on using it for personal consumption.
Average yields for Super Skunk are commonly around 18 oz/m2 for indoor growth and 21 oz per plant for outdoor cultivation.
Super Skunk was created by crossing Skunk #1 and Afghani, this resulted in an upgraded version of this classic variety.
Even for novice growers, Super Skunk is a relatively simple strain to cultivate, not requiring excessive amounts of attention to yield the highest quality and quantity.
Due to its relaxation properties, Super Skunk is shown to help patients suffering from high levels of stress and minor body pain which is caused by an inability to unwind.
Amnesia Haze strain is quite a demanding little variety to grow to a full hearty harvest, with its yield depends on the environmental conditions.
This strain requires more warmth and sunlight for optimal growth to receive the maximum potential yield and is also a bit sensitive to pests.
However, if you’re able to fully satisfy its demanding cultivation requirements, the Amnesia Haze varietal can yield up to 21 oz/m2 indoors and around 25 oz per plant when grown outdoors.
Amnesia Haze users claim the strain is best for aiding your overall mood while helping you begin your day with an uplifting and energetic smile.
If you live in a Mediterranean area, Amnesia Haze would be ideal due to the natural warmth and sunlight availability.
Northern Lights is a strain that’s well-known for its ease of cultivation in numerous environments.
It’s a small to medium-sized growing plant with a large number of resinous buds.
The strain is highly resistant to disease and thus makes it a safe choice for the novice grower.
When grown indoors, the strain can yield up to 18 oz/m2, and when cultivated outdoors, this variety can deliver over 22 ounces per plant.
A warm and sunny environment will be the optimal condition if growers plan on turning their plant into a full-sized tree.
If you have access to such an environment, the Northern Lights strain could be a profitable option.
Strawberry Kush seed genetics can be grown by novice growers, with one of the only real efforts required is to trim the plant due to its tendency to widen and branch out.
This variety can grow relatively short indoors but can grow quite tall outdoors if given enough space.
Strawberry Kush prefers a warm, sunny Mediterranean climate outside.
When given optimal growing conditions, harvesters can expect the strain to yield 18oz/m2 indoors and about 16oz per plant when grown outdoors.
Moderately resistant to disease, Strawberry Kush can be a safe option for newer cultivators to begin their journey in cannabis cultivation without too much worry.
The Chocolope cannabis varietal requires a well-ventilated space to grow due to its higher susceptibility to molds and mildew.
Growers should only plant seedlings of Chocolope once the risk of frost is gone to ensure its survivability while maximizing the potential yield at harvest.
If you decide to grow Chocolope outdoors, find a nice warm, balmy, and sunny environment to help encourage it to grow to its full potential.
With optimal cultivation conditions, Chocolope can yield up to 21oz/m2 indoors and around 32oz per plant outdoors.
By providing Chocolope with the proper environmental conditions for growing, this will be one of the highest-yielding cannabis strains when it comes time to harvest.
A brief caution. Chocolope may require moderate growing experience to get the best results and the largest yield possible from its seed genetics.
Sour Diesel is known to be a bit more challenging to cultivate versus other cannabis seed genetics.
In a hot, dry, arid climate with low humidity, Sour Diesel can grow tall (4+ feet) and can continue growing much larger as it begins to flower.
It’s strongly advised to use high-intensity lighting to encourage the seed genetics to grow to their maximum potential yield at harvest.
Since Sour Diesel is more susceptible to powdery mildew, it’s critical to maintain a sterile environment to prevent the issue before you have to react and play damage control.
By remaining diligent in keeping the surrounding environment super clean, you can stay ahead of the game to keep any mold issues from forming because powdery mildew can be difficult to eradicate.
Sour Diesel can yield around 18 ounces/m2 indoors and over 25 ounces per plant when grown outdoors upon optimal conditions.
This particular strain is recommended for experienced growers.
Afghan Kush is an easy-to-grow strain while yielding a hefty harvest and is a highly recommended strain for newer growers.
If you’re considering growing Afghan Kush outdoors, this particular set of seed genetics prefers a warm Mediterranean climate.
Due to its relative ease of cultivation, Afghan Kush can adapt to almost any growing medium while thriving and producing a sizable yield.
This pure Indica strain can produce several flowering buds and has a stronger immunity to rodents, parasites, and molds.
Yielding approximately 16oz/m2 when grown indoors and up to 21oz per plant when grown outdoors upon optimal conditions.
Afghan Kush is arguably the best choice for the novice grower, and its popularity in the medical world can also make it a profitable growth.
