Luckily, there are tons of options out there that are both beginner friendly and high yielding. Whether your end product is flower or hash, check out these top five best high yielding strains that you should grow in your garden.
1. Amnesia Haze
Amnesia Haze has been an Amsterdam coffee shop staple for years, thanks to its deliciously earthy, citrusy and herbal flavor. It offers an extremely energizing and cerebral high alongside a mellow body buzz that leaves you feeling balanced and relaxed. With its high levels of THC and all of the other good qualities of the high, it’s an excellent strain for beginners. However, it’s also an extremely high yielder. Amnesia Haze seeds come from the OG 90s mother plant, so you’re getting the genuine article that makes great flower and delicious hash. More importantly, it checks in around 20-25% THC on average and flowers in 10-11 weeks, allowing you to harvest two ouncer per square foot.
Critical is as easy to grow as they come, and grows on the more compact side making it a favorite strain amongst indoor growers. The strain is a cross between Skunk and Afghani, which are both high-yielding strains. With that said, Critical is too. Sometimes called Critical Mass for its extremely dense, heavy colas, this indica-leaning strain is great for producing a lot of bud in small spaces. In about 7-8 weeks, you might have up to two ounces per square foot. Aside from growing ease, the strain is beloved for its trichome production as well as its soothing, relaxing high. You’re also sure to love its fruity, piney, and skunky flavor in your finished flower or concentrates.
3. Skunk XL
Skunk XL is a cross between the original Skunk and the Afghani landrace strain, which gives it a higher yield than classic skunk and makes it quite a bit more beginner friendly. Much like skunk, Skunk XL is favored for its skunky, herbal aromas and its moderate amount of THC between 15-20%. More importantly, it also contains a bit of CBD which makes it a lot more balanced, allowing you to enjoy a blissful euphoric effect and a strong body high without feeling overwhelmed by it. Skunk XL’s size makes it ideal for beginners and indoor growers, but even at its small stature it still produces up to 2.5 ounces of flower per square foot in 8-9 weeks.
4. Shining Silver Haze
Shining Silver Haze is a cross between Haze, Skunk, and Northern Lights — all of which are known for their excellent yields. Needless to say, Shining Silver Haze is the same. With dense colas and THC levels ranging from 20-25% THC, this potent powerhouse makes for a fantastic beginner and indoor strain. People love it for its delicious citrusy flavor and skunky aroma. But more importantly, the high can’t be beat. People love it for its balanced mix of effects that offer an uplifting cerebral high and a mellow body high that can be enjoyed pretty much anywhere and anytime. Shining Silver Haze can produce up to 2.5 ounces per square foot in as few as 9-11 weeks.
5. Royal Skywalker
Royal Skywalker is beloved for its soothing indica-dominant effects that are sure to leave the body feeling relaxed and the mind feeling uplifted. However, there’s also a lot to be said for its peppery berry flavor and whopping potency ranging from 25-30% THC. Royal Skywalker is made from a cross between Blueberry and Mazar, which are both high yielders. With proper care, Royal Skywalker can yield up to two ounces of flower per square foot in only 9-10 weeks.
At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with these high yielding strains. Each one is easy to find, relatively easy to grow, and can fit in small spaces. With proper care, you’re guaranteed to have a stellar harvest that you can share with your friends or enjoy on your own.
