6 Cannabis Strains You Should Be Trying In 2022

Cannabis Strains

What would you do if you had the opportunity to grow some cannabis outdoors? If you’re like most people, you’d jump at the chance. There’s nothing quite like getting your hands on some high-quality bud that you grew from seed to harvest yourself. It gives you a great sense of pride and accomplishment, knowing that you were able to not only plan and execute your own growing operation, but that it was a success as well. So, what are the best places to grow cannabis outdoors?

At first, you'll need to choose a state in which you can set up your operation. The factors that make a location ideal are manifold. Though it is not very difficult or time-consuming to relocate your grow operation, it is advantageous to get things right from day one—so let's start with narrowing down some of the most important factors when deciding where your cannabis grow will be located.

California

Well known for its easy access to almost anything, and California is no different. Northern California offers a lot of growing options from low hills to more mountainous areas in which you’ll be surrounded by trees and other natural growth that can give your plant great nutrients. It’s no wonder that Northern California is home to both large growers and industry suppliers. You might find yourself in cooler temperatures near mountains or higher heat near beaches, but both are ideal environments when it comes to growing marijuana outdoors. The climate will also be perfect during your harvest season as well since most produce grows best when humidity is up and sunlight is ample.

Colorado

In most of Colorado, growing cannabis outdoors requires good soil. While you can buy a bag of dirt at any garden center, many growers prefer using their own soil. If you’re new to cultivation, it’s recommended that you choose an indica strain for your first grow. Indicas are usually smaller and bushier than sativas. If you want something more hearty with higher yields and stronger effects, consider a hybrid strain like Sunset Sherbet or Trainwreck. Although they can be grown in all parts of Colorado, cannabis plants grow best when they receive at least five hours of direct sunlight per day. However, because many areas of Colorado only get four or five hours of sun each day during autumn months, growers should supplement light with additional artificial lighting when fall sets in.

Hawaii

The climate in Hawaii is tropical, humid and rainy. During some seasons, you can expect it to rain up to 8 inches per month! Since Hawaii’s soil is fertile and moist all year round, there’s no reason why you can’t get away with growing your plants outdoors if that’s what you want. You might be able to get away with using soilless potting mix or a peat-based mixture for your seeds as well. But be sure not to over-water them; overwatering can cause mold which can harm or kill your cannabis plants. For example, out of all 3 main islands in Hawaii (Oahu, Maui and Kauai), Kauai is generally regarded as having ideal growing conditions for cannabis plants. Since you can typically expect high yields in Hawaii, you might consider helpful equipment, such as trimmers.

Cannabis Strains

Nevada

With a few exceptions, Nevada is a good place for growing cannabis outdoors. The weather is warm and you can even grow in an urban environment. Nevada residents that are 21 and older can legally grow cannabis at their own home for personal use, but only if there isn’t a state-licensed, retail cannabis store within 25 miles of their home. There are additional limitations on the number and size of plants that you can grow. Be sure to visit Nevada’s Cannabis Compliance Board for detailed and updated regulations.

Alaska

Though Alaska is still a while away from completely legalizing recreational cannabis, it has passed medical and non-medical cannabis laws. While it's legal to grow small amounts of your own, if you get caught in Alaska with even a single joint of marijuana in public, then you could be jailed for 90 days and receive a $10,000 fine. However, given its climate and how long sunlight lasts at certain times of year (over three months!), there’s no better place for growing outdoors. Don’t even think about having a weed farm if you live in Fairbanks or Juneau; law enforcement officers use helicopters to watch over their respective cities!

Washington

In Washington state, outdoor growing is only permitted in counties that allow outdoor growth. These permits can cost as much as $2,000 and are limited by county. Permits for outdoor cannabis cultivation are also subject to regulations governing how close you can be to schools or playgrounds. It may be best just to have yours delivered. Most of Washington is hilly or mountainous terrain, which presents challenges when planning an outdoor garden, but the Pacific Northwest has mild winters which makes it ideal for starting plants indoors, then moving them outside, and harvesting them when autumn comes around.

Do Your Homework

Cannabis growing laws vary widely from state-to-state – and sometimes within a state. These laws can also change, so you’ll want to do your homework before you start planting your garden. If you’re considering growing cannabis for medical reasons, you might consider other natural means to relieve anxiety, or using CBD for weight loss.
