Best Marijuana Seeds for Beginners
2018 Best Sellers and Most Popular Marijuana Strains for Noob Farmers.
When you're entering the world of marijuana growing for the first time, there is a steep learning curve.
You may not know the first thing about growing cannabis, but that doesn't mean that you can't be a successful grower in time if you put the work into it.
For your first crop, keep it simple, and stick to something that's easy to grow and won't give you too much trouble.
This article compiles some of the best marijuana seed strains for beginners to help you start off your new hobby strong.
What To Look For There are two major factors that you want to look for when choosing your first cannabis strain to grow- the strength and the resistance of the plant itself. You want something that doesn't need to be babied, and can largely fend for itself for your first time around. Look for something that isn't too fussy about exact nutrient levels, light schedules, or other things that are easy to mess up. On your first crop, you'll make plenty of rookie mistakes, so there's no need to add "advanced mistakes" into the mix just yet.
Feminized Seeds To save yourself a lot of trouble, go ahead and buy feminized seeds for your first crop. This will cut out the whole process of sex identification and also eliminate the possibility of male plants preventing your females from flowering. It's far easier for the beginner to choose known feminized seeds that will give them the smoothest growing process possible. Once you've got a little experience under your belt, feel free to experiment with the wide variety of seeds that are available in standard strains, but don't be tempted by them on your first shot. It's better to stick with the sure thing in order to minimize the risk of your first crop not growing right.Papaya Feminized, greasy cannabis indica. Perfect for beginners!
Shorter Flowering Times Are Better If you have the patience of a saint, go ahead and choose a long-flowering strain, but if not, stick to something quick. The uncertainty surrounding whether or not your first grow will flourish already makes the process seem like it takes twice as long as it actually does, so choosing a strain that takes forever to grow is just asking to be miserable. Many first time growers prefer to start off with a strain that has a quick turnaround so that they can see how their work has paid off and get started on their next batch quickly.
Don't Spend More Than $10 per Seed Remember that there are no guarantees your grow is going to turn out a good yield, even if you study all the grow information available to you. Things can always go wrong, especially for beginners, and if that happens it will be a big enough disappointment already without adding a significant financial loss into the mix. Remember that the price of a seed doesn't necessarily correlate to the strain's quality, and don't break the bank on your first grow.
#16 Auto Blueberry Domina These auto-flowering female weed seeds are not-to-miss! The grown marijuana has a tart sweet and spicy taste, with an aftertaste like what you'd expect with hash. The berry scent is a treat and its intense body stone effect is amongst the best cannabis out there.
The 2018 Auto Blueberry Domina Feminized delivers a relaxing feeling that will take away the troubles from your day. You would do well to reserve smoking this marijuana strain with its 17% THC levels for a day or night at home on the couch. Make it a plan to just rest and unwind when you're smoking this Indica-dominant weed!
For beginners at growing cannabis seeds in 2018, Auto Blueberry Domina Feminized is a great choice because it only requires 2-3 weeks in veg and then about 6 more weeks for automatic flowering. Look for the dense buds that frost over with resin to appear. The leaves are broad-fingered for the short-to-medium high plant that offers a powerful high and can grow indoors or outdoors. Expect impressive yields of 220g per plant outdoors and 110g indoor per plant. Cheers to that!
#15 Autopilot XXL Get all the powerful effects and benefits of Big Bud XXL in a hybrid auto-flowering form with Autopilot XXL Feminized! For beginners at growing cannabis seeds, this variety is one of the best in 2018 because it grows in a temperate climate throughout the year, rather than just in autumn, unlike some other seeds. You'll notice its pungent scent and the taste is peppery.
You'll like the happy vibes you feel while on this Indica-dominant strain that has a 15% THC level. Your Big Bud high just got higher! Enjoy the euphoria. The auto-flowering female seeds can grow indoor or outdoor, giving beginners lots of options, and it only takes about 6 weeks.
Also, you'll love the large harvest that comes from the female weed seeds. Autopilot XXL Feminized usually grows as a big main bud with several buds on the side branches, which gives you more harvest than you might expect at first glance. Although it is an auto-flowering form, its buds are fat, and they're juicy too!
#14 Super Skunk is a potent cross between Skunk #1 and Skunk Special. It delivers all the sweet and pungent buds of Skunk Special with the large and hardy flowers of Skunk #1. It is a predominately Indica strain, making it great for relaxation as well as medical uses like pain relief, stress reduction, and anxiety relief. The primary flavor notes of this strain are pungent skunk and earthy aromas.
The most common effects produced by Super Skunk include relaxation, happiness, euphoria, sleepiness, and hunger. Plants usually flower within 47 days or so, making this a fast finishing strain that delivers speed gratification on your hard work. Not to suggest that this strain is a difficult one to grow - in fact, the opposite is true.

#13 Dark Angel is a 50/50 Indica/Sativa blend that will give you an incredible full body stone. It's a great strain to enjoy while just chilling at home or even for the relief of minor aches and pains. It is a cross between the Cheese and Jack Herer strains, giving it as many Indica qualities as it has Sativa ones.
The THC level in this strain can get up to 20%, and the CBD is nothing to shake a stick at either. Its short, eight week flowering time and high yield make it a great choice for first time growers. Beginners will definitely appreciate how easy Dark Angel is to grow, either indoors or out.
This strain develops compact nuggets with plenty of THC crystals that have a pleasant aroma reminiscent of coffee and nutmeg. The seeds are also reasonably priced so that they'll give you a good yield without breaking the bank.
#12 Big Bud XXL You'll understand the name of Big Bud XXL when you see its big, round buds! White hairs and crystals spread across the buds, with a low proportion of calyx to leaf, which makes it easy for growers to trim the marijuana plants. This feature is just one reason Big Bud XXL is one of the best choices for beginners in 2018.
For growers, you'll fall in love with the cannabis seeds that flower in only 7 to 8 weeks and have a high yield potential. Plus, you can grow the seeds indoors or outdoors; this is a massive producer that can give you up to 1kg per plant when grown indoors!
As for how you'll feel on Big Bud XXL, get ready for the happy feeling you've been searching for in your day or evening. With THC levels up to 15%, you'll get a euphoric feeling when smoking this weed in 2018. Also, food will taste even better than usual as your senses intensify! The aroma has a spiciness that goes well with the skunk strain. The female strain is a hybrid of Indica (80%) and Sativa (20%).
#11 Kaya Gold is a strain that does beautifully outdoors in a number of different climates. It does grow large and tall, making it better suited for outdoor gardens rather than indoor grow rooms, but still manages to finish relatively quickly. It can be grown in both hot or cold climates, and is resistant to many different types of pests that may normally plague your outdoor garden or greenhouse. When smoked, Kaya Gold has a spicy, musky, and earthy flavor.
As far as medicinal uses, this strain can be used for the effective treatment of stress, depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and seasonal affective disorder. Kaya Gold produces a high but stoney effect, with relaxation, an uplifting feeling, and may give you the munchies.
Many growers use this strain to plant somewhere remote in the summer, then return to those GPS coordinates in the Autumn to find the now flourishing plants, they're that low maintenance!
#10 Early XXX For beginners at growing cannabis seeds or anyone who wants to save weeks in growing time, Early XXX is one of the best varieties for you! It grows easily in almost all climates and produces a big yield. The dense buds coated with resin will appear in only 7-8 weeks, which is awesome news in 2018!
You can grow the female seeds outdoors or indoors, giving you lots of options. This marijuana plant is medium height, but stretchy so make sure you accommodate it if you are growing indoors. The short flowering time makes it a hit with both beginners and more experienced cultivators, especially if you're not known for having patience as a grower. Expect about 600g per plant outdoors and 400g per square meter indoors.
With a 15% THC level, Early XXX keeps you feeling happy as you smoke it. You might have a bit of forgetfulness so make sure that when you're on the weed strain it's a day when you can relax on the couch and watch TV. It's a smooth variety to smoke in 2018 and has a nice sweet aftertaste.
#9 Crop King Seeds Feminized Pack This specialized mix of seeds by Crop King Seeds includes a sampling of strains chosen specifically for their easiness to grow. This pack is the perfect starter set for a beginner starting his or her first grow.
If you're not sure exactly what you want to grow, which is a common problem for beginners, this pack gives you a lot of variety and lets you explore a bunch of different options at once to get a feel for what you like and what you don't like as much. This goes for both the growing and using processes, since you might find that a strain you love to enjoy in its final form is a complete pain to grow, or vice versa.
All of the seeds are also guaranteed to be feminized, so new growers will not have to worry about trying to sex their seeds or plants and potentially losing buds because of unidentified male plants. Believe us, that will save you a lot of hassle and heartbreak when you're first getting started.
#8 Black Domino With its smoky, spicy taste, Black Domino is one of the best marijuana strains to try in 2018. It's an easy strain for beginners to grow too, which is another reason it's so popular. The cannabis seeds grow fast and give a high yield. Black Domino is a hybrid but mainly Indica, so you know it's going to have a big, bold taste and matching stone.
You'll want to lay down on the couch and relax when you're on Black Domino. It hits you with an intense blow to start and then mellows into a calming effect that beginners and connoisseurs both enjoy. The scent of the strain is a bit like a skunk smells, but you won't care once you're in your relaxed mode.
If you have insomnia, you've met a mix here that is sure to please and get you some much-needed zzz's. For medical users, the weed strain can offer relief from stress and pain. You might get the munchies, though, so bring the snacks to the couch before you lay down because you won't want to get up anytime soon!
#7 Early Vixen is one of the top strains of 2018 when it comes to ease of growing.
Cultivation is a breeze with these seeds, since they have an 8 week flowering window, grow well in outdoor and indoor conditions, and produce a great high yield. With Early Vixen, you could be enjoying 500 grams of dense, crystal-filled buds that produce a cerebral high in as little as 8 weeks.
You can't beat that! Early Vixen is a primarily Indica blend of the famous strains Haze, Northern LIghts, and Skunk, and with a lineage like that, you know it has to be good.
Early Vixen is a great choice for first time growers because it makes for a satisfying start and shows that all the hard work you put into growing your own marijuana can really pay off in spades.
Aside from producing a highly enjoyable body buzz, this strain is also great for reducing the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
#6 Swiss Cheese Luckily for many of us, these plants do not actually smell anything like Swiss Cheese. It actually has a sweet, fruity, and citrusy aroma. The strain is a cross between Swiss Miss and a mysterious SKunk #1 phenotype that was found in the United Kingdom and subsequently smuggled into Amsterdam for breeding purposes.
Swiss Cheese is a plant that will give you no trouble, making it a perfect choice for beginners to try growing. It requires very little maintenance over the course of its 8 week growing period, with the vast majority of the work required being put in during the planting stages. When planting, make sure to allow each plant enough space and don't plant seeds too close together because they will grow and stretch very far horizontally around the spot where they were planted. This growing pattern is well suited for low and wide grow rooms.
Swiss Cheese is not susceptible to mold and is highly resistant to other types of fungal plant diseases, so that's one less thing to worry about.
When all is said and done, with minimal watering and fertilizing, you will end up with a very high bud to leaf ratio that will produce a bountiful harvest.
#5 Caramelicious Caramelicious is one of the best strains for beginners who want relief from stress and pain. The 2018 medical marijuana also is popular with people seeking relief from depression, nausea, or feeling tired. When using the hybrid Caramelicious, you'll feel a happy high and want to chill out. Feel blissful on a dose of this weed.
You know that having the name Caramelicious means it has to be one of the best tasting cannabis strains around! It will remind you of caramel, honey, vanilla, and toffee, all in one. Yum. This strain is great for beginners who love sweet stuff. Think of it as a dessert for after dinner that has medical uses too. Or it can be your go-to variety for a daytime high too. The sweet note stays on your tongue when you exhale.
These seeds are great for beginners because they're so easy to grow and have a big harvest. The buds are sticky and dense. When you want to relax as a medicinal user, reach for this particular cannabis strain or seeds.
#4 White Widow For a powerful burst of energy and euphoria, as well as creativity, many people swear by White Widow. Its name comes from its white buds and high potency, which also explains why it is one of the most popular marijuana strains in the U.S. and around the globe. Many people use White Widow in 2018 to dull pain, lower stress, and combat depression. It delivers in the happy high department and offers a euphoric experience for beginners or long-time users. Relaxation can be yours too, thanks to White Widow's high THC levels, which can be upwards of 26%!
As for its taste, White Widow is earthy and woody on the exhale. Some smokers say it is a bit spicy, kind of like lemon pepper. The scent of this hybrid will remind you of a pine cone. If you are thinking of growing seeds, you will find this variety is one of the best for beginners. Depending where you live, the weed seeds can harvest every two months. They do best in indoor environments, although outdoors can work well too in some regions. It's no wonder this cannabis strain has been a hit in Dutch coffee shops for two decades!
#3 Papaya Papaya by Nirvana Shop is an Indica strain that grows short and dense, staying low to the ground like a typical Indica. However, it produces almost sativa-like effects, including bursts of energy and productivity with an overall state of mental calm. Medicinal marijuana users recommend this as a good daytime medicine that will relieve your symptoms without making you too drowsy or lethargic. This strain is a popular breed from Nirvana Seeds, developed using genetics from Mango, Citral #13, and Ice #2.
The most common effects of Papaya are relaxation, euphoria, happiness, sleepiness, and focus. It has a sweet, tropical taste to it, with hints of mango, true to its lineage but ironic to its name!
Papaya is a good strain for your first grow because it is hardy and resistant to disease, matures quickly, and produces a good yield. The unique aroma and taste also make it a great plant to have around and show off to your visitors. If they've never tasted Papaya before, they will be pleasantly surprised!
#2 Easy Sativa Easy Sativa delivers just what you would expect from its name. The seeds of this Sativa variety are a cinch to grow outdoors or in a greenhouse, even for beginners. You'll get a lot of big buds as a reward for your efforts in only about 12 weeks! Don't try growing it indoors under lights though as it won't do well. This cannabis strain is a yummy blend of spicy and sweet, giving you the best of both worlds. It originally came from Southeast Asia and is well-known for its fruity smell.
You'll get the trademark Sativa high from smoking this one. At first, your mind will race, and then the mind buzz will come in waves. It's not a weed to take when you want to relax - that's for sure! Instead, you might get a case of the giggles or have moments of awesome creativity. We like that Easy Sativa lasts longer than the average marijuana strain, so you get your money's worth in 2018! For beginners taking it for recreational use, Easy Sativa is a good choice for a night of partying. For medical users, it helps you de-stress and can improve your appetite too.
#1 THC Bomb THC Bomb is the BOMB or the best choice for beginners who want to grow weed seeds. They grow easily and also have high yields - what more could beginners want?! They won't cause you a lot of problems, and you'll love the high THC levels of as much as 20%. But don't worry, it won't completely knock you out. You'll feel mellow, happy, and have a feeling of euphoria when using THC Bomb. A nap might come easily too! A lot of smokers like that they get a break from their stressful days or chronic pain; it's a popular choice for medical marijuana.
The taste is earthy, with spicy notes. The smell is a bit funky during growing phases, but after a good cure, it gets more of a berry fruit smell. As you can get a big harvest from the weed seeds and it's a cinch even for beginners to cultivate, THC Bomb is a favorite with both connoisseur and commercial growers. Yes, as you can already tell, this 2018 cannabis strain is a great one.
