Best Outdoor Marijuana Seeds For Your Climate

Best Outdoor Marijuana Seeds For Your Climate

When deciding what kind of cannabis seeds to buy, you need to take a number of factors into account. First and foremost, you should get acquainted with your own climate, for this will make the biggest difference in the success of your plants’ yield. Marijuana varieties come in different shapes and sizes.

These variations are from their successful growth in a very specific type of climate. Light intensity and length of exposure, temperature, altitude, and seasonal changes all will have an effect on your cannabis plants.

It’s your job to find out which strain is perfect for your particular climate, but I'll help you with that. In my online seed shop you can select marijuana seeds by type, climate, yield and much more.

Best seeds for your climate

All marijuana plants are not alike. Depending on the grower’s preferences and the surrounding climate, marijuana has evolved differently in different geographic locations.

cannabis seeds

Example off seeds

For instance, tropical locations often have marijuana plants with very small leaves but many flowers. Middle Eastern and Central Asian strains, on the other hand, usually have larger leaves (both in breadth and length) and denser buds.

Differences in leaf size reflect differences in sunlight strength and consistency. Larger leaves have evolved in locations with weaker light, in order to absorb as much sunlight as possible. The greater the leaf size, the more sunlight they can be exposed to at one point in time.

These differences may seem superficial at first, but in fact they can make a huge difference when you are deciding which strain to plant. If you live in a climate where there is not much sunlight, or it is particularly weak, then you will want to choose a strain that has a tendency for greater leaf sizes.

Indica, sativa and ruderalis

Cannabis Indica

Indica's tend to be short and wide, have greener colors, and have rounder leaves with patterns that look like marble. The high is heavy and centered on the body.

Indica leaves

Indica leaves

The indica variety comes from a number of different places including Kashmir, Morocco, Afghanistan, and Tibet.

These locales are well-known for their tradition of producing hash and kif, two THC-filled byproducts of the cannabis plant. Indica plants tend to be shorter (around 3 to 6 feet tall) and contain broad leaves, dense foliage, and a dark bluish green hue that can appear purple sometimes.

During the maturation process, indica plants can start to turn even more purple. They will also produce thick, dense buds. The characteristic “skunky” aroma and taste of indica is a defining property of its smoke. When smoking, you tend to feel the relaxing and almost hypnotic effects in your body more than your brain.

Cannabis Sativa

Sativa's tend to be taller, thinner, and have pointier leaves without patterns. The high is energetic and centered on the brain.

sativa leaves

Sativa leaves

Sativas are a tropical variety originating out of places like Mexico, Colombia, and Thailand. Despite the fact that these plants come from warmer climes, they have proven to be adaptable to colder temperatures. They are tall, slender plants that can reach up to between 8 and 12 feet. Unlike the indica variety, sativas have thinner leaves and a light green coloration.

As the buds mature, they start to turn red, but if the climate is colder, they may start to turn purple. Other sativa strains may have a slight “golden” or yellow hue. Spicy, fruity, and sweet are all ways to describe the smell and taste of sativa plants. The high is very cerebral and lively.

indica vs sativa leaves and strains

Here you can see the difference between Indica and Sativa (leaves and strains)

Cannabis Ruderalis

Ruderalis plants tend to be small and are used in clothing, rope manufacturing but also for their breeding potential to produce autoflowering marijuana plants.

Ruderalis leaves strain

Ruderalis strain with leaves

Ruderalis is typically cultivated in the northern Himalayas and in a few of the southern former Soviet states. It grows in a scant, weedy pattern and is typically never cultivated for use as a psychoactive drug.

Hemp cultivation used to be prevalent in places like the mid-western United States, and some extant ruderalis populations can be found in that area. Wild ruderalis also appears in great quantities in places like Latvia, Belarus, Lithuania, and nearby nations. Because humans rarely cultivate these plants, they have lost the traits that make them desirable to humans.

Sativa vs Indica vs Ruderalis

Sativa vs Indica vs Ruderalis

Although ruderalis has a relatively low THC content by comparison to both sativa and indica, they do possess some desirable properties. Ruderalis is high in cannabidiol (a less potent cannabinoid than THC), and some medical marijuana patients grow these varieties.

But the real draw of ruderalis for some breeders is that the plants can be autoflowering and also highly resistant to pest problems and disease. Indica strains are commonly crossed with ruderalis strains to produce THC-filled plants that are autoflowering. These plants also tend to have more resistance to environmental pressures and shorter height.

Hybrid marijuana strains

As the term suggests, a hybrid occurs when you cross a sativa with an indica or an indica with a sativa. Virtually every strain is a cross-breed between an Indica and a Sativa for the best of both highs.

Any crossbred plant will contain a certain amount of indica characteristics and a certain amount sativa characteristics. Every strain has its own unique mix of medicinal characteristics.

hybrid plant cannabis

Hybrid plant cannabis

If you want to gauge how much of a sativa or indica your hybrid plant is, then just take a look at the fingers on the fan leaves. If the fingers are wider than normal, then you have a “mostly indica” plant. If the fingers are thinner than a normal leaf, then you’ve got a “mostly sativa” plant.

One of the most important aspects of choosing a marijuana seed is how likely that seed is to thrive in the climate and environment that you intend to grow it in. Sativas generally take longer to mature than pure indicas, but, with cloning and breeding, you can make crosses between the two that mature in suitable time periods.

Of course, it’s more vital to take into account the climate when buying your marijuana seeds. What kind of weather do you expect during the growing season?

Tip: make sure to download my free Grow Bible for more information about best outdoor strains

It’s also always a good idea to look at the average temperatures in your area at the start of spring and fall. Tropical and southern locales will usually provide plenty of light and warmth for marijuana plants, but northern locations will have to prepare differently.

If the ground is still frozen at the start of spring or if early winter frosts are an issue, then it’s important to have a strain that grows in a shorter amount of time (usually indicas). You can start later in spring and harvest earlier in the fall so that the cold temperatures do not affect the yield or potency.

My personal favorites

The one question I get the most is “Which marijuana seeds are the best for yield and simplicity in my region?” Each strain maintains its own unique characteristics, growth processes, and flavors. But, if you asked me to choose my favorite indica-dominant, sativa-dominant, and ruderalis-dominant strain, then these are what I’d choose:

Indica - White Widow

Everybody needs to cultivate and smoke a little white widow. It is one of the most popular strains in Amsterdam coffee shops and it’s loved by indoor growers, too. It is easy to grow and produces an extensive yield and a fantastic high. There’s nothing better than white widow!

White widow is particularly well-known for the glaze of white trichomes that cover its exterior. These trichomes are extremely high in THC and white widow benefits from a high potency. The strain is highly relaxing and has also been used as an appetite booster. Although it is an indica-dominant strain, it still maintains a large amount of sativa characteristics.

Indica – White Widow plant

Mood enhancement and increased activity can also be experienced when smoking white widow. The strain is usually compact and rises to medium heights. The plant’s buds only produce a small amount of amber-colored hairs, but the amount of crystals caked on to the buds is legendary. The strain is also resistant to mold and well-suited for colder locales. Buy white widow marijuana seeds

Sativa - Super Silver Haze

Everything about white widow could be said about super silver haze as well. It’s simple to grow and produces outstanding yields and fantastic highs. I’m always amazed at how fast super silver haze grows and how much quality bud the plants can make.

The strain is a perfect blend of notable strains including Northern Lights, Haze, and Skunk. The scent and taste of super silver haze is like no other. It packs a fragrant, skunky, and spicy punch that has improved moods and relaxed the body for decades.

Sativa - Super Silver Haze plant

Sativa - Super Silver Haze plant

You have the combination of a relaxed stone and a stimulated high that proves to be a perfect mix every time. As long as you provide the plant’s roots with plenty of room to grow, you should end up with outstanding yields. Buy Super Silver Haze marijuana seeds

Ruderalis – Super Skunk feminized autoflower

As I’ve noted previously, the only real benefit of autoflowering seeds is the fast flowering time. Marijuana generally starts to flower when the seasons change and the light cycle diminishes, but autoflowering plants will start blooming in only a few weeks.

They are always rather small and do not produce the highest quality bud, but you can harvest them in no time! When the season starts, I always germinate a few super skunk autoflowers so I can enjoy a smoke while the standard seeds grow.

Ruderalis – Super Skunk feminized autoflower

Ruderalis – Super Skunk feminized autoflower plant

This super skunk strain provides all the benefits of the world-renowned super skunk genes with the quick flowering time of cannabis ruderalis. The growth patterns and beautiful bud structure are consistent and quite aesthetic to look at.

Although short and small, the plant produces substantial colas and plump, THC-riddled calyxes. The high is immediate and potent, but it is followed quickly by an almost somnolent, long-lasting body buzz. Buy Super Skunk autoflower marijuana seeds

How to choose the best seeds

So how do you choose the right strain for your growing preferences and climate? If you know where certain marijuana strains are normally grown, you can get a good idea of what type of strain would work well in your own climate.

People who want to grow their plants in Florida, for instance, should choose a tropical type of marijuana strain. The same goes for other similar climates, such as Louisiana, Texas, and anywhere along the Gulf Coast. Other growers in these locations may decide to go with a Sativa strain, which tends to be hardier and has plenty of variety in structure and color.

Different climate in USA cannabis growers

Different climate in USA

Weather is not the only factor that is important to consider. You also need to look at any other differences between your seasonal changes and the marijuana strain’s native seasons.

For instance, a strain that originated in Hawaii thrives in its long Hawaiian growing season. This means it might not reach its full potential in your own climate, as it most likely has a shorter growing season. You would still end up with a yield that is perfectly smokable and will get you high, but the size of the plant will be smaller, so your yield will not be as great.

If you’re an experienced smoker of weed, you are already well aware that a high can vary quite a bit. Some get you into a happy or dreamy state right away while others might take longer and result in a sleepier state.

You probably also know that not all highs give you a good feeling; sometimes headaches, sore throats, or paranoia can be the type of high you feel. You should choose your marijuana seeds accordingly; no one wants a bad high, do they?

So how do you get the good high and avoid the bad? It’s quite simple, really: just make sure to get the seeds from the marijuana that you like best, and make sure you’re curing the bud in the correct way once you have harvested it.

All kinds off different seeds

All kinds off different seeds | Choose what you prefer

It is surprisingly easy to acquire seeds since many growers don’t want to use them themselves. There are often a large quantity of seeds left over. Plenty of companies exist online, where they post photos displaying what the final result of the seeds should look like.

Because working online always comes with potential risks, make sure you are cautious and know whether the company is legitimate or not. If you buy marijuana seeds from my webshop I guarantee delivery, germination and high quality genetics.

All in all, it’s extremely important to have marijuana plants with good genes. No matter what strain you choose, bad genetics are bad genetics. Be sure you've done the proper research before buying anything.

Seasonal changes

Choosing a strain of marijuana that works for your climate and grow location is not as simple as it sounds. You should focus on how successful that strain has been in its native climate, and what kind of success that will translate into within your own climate.

snow on cannabis plant

Choose a strain that works for your climate

Savita strains generally take a longer time to mature than other strains that are Indica dominant. To acquire the perfect strain for you, you should find strains that are a mix of two different types, Indica combined with Sativa.

Before making any decisions, take a close look at your climate. What will the weather be like throughout the growing season? Find out what the average temperatures are, especially at the end of the fall and start of spring seasons.

Many growers who live in northern, colder locations have some trouble at the beginning of the season: they often have to deal with the ground remaining frozen at the beginning of spring, or else an early winter frost at the end of the fall season. These factors can reduce the potency and yield of your marijuana plants.

These factors mean that marijuana growers who live in colder climates often choose strains that have a shorter growing time. This will let them avoid the first frost so they can remove their plants well before it comes.

frost on weed plant

An early winter frost

Growers in southern or tropical regions do not have to contend with the same problems. Instead, they will find that the sunlight during all parts of the growing season is consistently strong.

Cannabis plants are especially responsive to how much and what kind of light they receive. When a mature cannabis plant receives less than 12 hours of light per day, for instance, it then will utilize all of its energy for flowering instead of growing. This can be used to the grower’s advantage.

Some growers intentionally restrict the amount of light with the purpose of speeding up the flowering process. They might move potted cannabis plants, or else cover them up with a cloth. These intentional light limitations can create the same effect as natural light changes, thus “convincing” the plant that fall weather is coming and it needs to begin flowering.

It is sometimes wise to start flowering even earlier, depending on where you live. If you live in a place that is prone to an early frost, early flowering can come in handy.

early flowering weed plant

Start early flowering when needed

If you have grown plants of any kind before, you will know that a frost hitting your plants can cause them to have a lower potency and yield. Another method that growers in northern climates use is planting multiple strains of marijuana seeds, which all flower at different times.

You can see when your plant is mature enough for a change in sunlight exposure time by paying attention to its branching. In the third or fourth week of growth, you should be able to see the secondary branching starting to begin. This is when the plants are mature enough to have the light manipulated accordingly.

Regional differences in strains

There are a wide number of marijuana strains, all native to different locations. Each strain has its own set of unique qualities that need to be taken into consideration before you choose the strain that is best for you.

Plenty of other strains and combinations of strains exist, and the possibilities are endless. Many of the most renowned strains that have even received awards in Amsterdam or California are combinations of different strains.

If you happen to come across seeds with these superior genes, make sure you have a complete understanding of the conditions and climate in which it was originally grown. You would not want to waste the opportunity with experimental growing, potentially resulting in a failed attempt.

Climate zones around the world

Climate zones around the world

Having a proper grasp of what your climate is like is the most important near the start and finish of your cannabis plant’s life. Marijuana plants are the most fragile when they are seedlings because they have not yet had the chance to build up a resistance to outdoor changes.

The more mature a marijuana plant is, the stronger and thicker their stems are, meaning they are better able to protect the inside from any external changes. Therefore, if you live in a location that includes frosts at the beginning of your spring season (marijuana’s growing season), then you might want to think about starting out your cannabis growing inside of a greenhouse or other controlled setting indoors. You can then transplant them at another time when they have had the chance to develop a resilience against outdoor weather effects.

Let’s fast forward to the other side of a cannabis plant’s life: the fall. Depending on where you live, your climate might get frost even before fall begins.

Tip: make sure to download my free Grow Bible for more information about best seeds

Although mature plants can take a certain amount of cold and frost, if they are exposed to cold or frost multiple times in a row, they can lose taste as well as potency. And, worse still, if you don’t harvest them right away then the entire crop could be completely lost.

So how do you ensure that this doesn’t happen? If you’re a first-time grower in this type of climate, it would be a good idea to keep an eye on the sun, as well as get some advice from nurseries and resources that spring perennial growers use.

Spring perennials include crops such as tomatoes and corn, and help you find out when the frost often happens, as well as when the best time to harvest your plants is. Of course, after a few harvest seasons, you will have an excellent understanding of timing. Keep in mind that you have more leniency in the fall than in the spring, as you will be working with more mature plants.

If you are someone living and growing in a climate that does not have any of these major freezes, you could potentially grow your plants throughout the entire year. Assuming the soil, water, and light supplies are all good enough, marijuana plants that are grown in this type of climate are generally shorter with many buds.

cannabis winter sun

Plants are finally getting some winter sun

Although the winter sun is still not as strong as the summer sun, it will be enough to stimulate plants to grow. When spring rolls around you can trim your cannabis plants. This will help achieve a natural stage of growth for the normal time to harvest (fall).

Choosing a strain that fits your climate is perhaps the most crucial first step in growing successful cannabis plants outdoors. If you choose a strain that thrives in a different climate from your own, you will be sorely disappointed in the results.

If, on the other hand, you choose a strain that matches your climate well and care for your plants properly, you will be rewarded with a fine yield, as well as nice seeds for further planting. Choose wisely and check all my marijuana seeds for the best genetics.

If anyone ever doubts that this company will get you your seeds, have no doubts.. after several attempts, seizures and letters I indeed received my seeds. Emails were sent back and forth, at one point, I had lost hope and asked for a refund, but to my surprise, the seeds showed up in a unique stealth package. I have never had a company work so hard to do what they promise. The seeds I started all took so far. Thanks for giving medical users a good deal, good products and excellent service.

By Rob on 27 August 2017

Hello Walt!
How many plants are you growing under that 250w HPS?? I would highly recommend increasing that to at least 400-600w if you grow more than one or two plants. I personally have 12 babies under 2000w HPS with a few LED's hanging above the main canopy,as well as 4 T5 fixures for bottom lighting(not necessary,call it overkill if you will lol). But as you increase the wattage, in turn comes higher temps and high humidity. A dehumidifyer might work out for ya if you're having mold issues. The key is to get the temps right around 70 degrees Farenheight, while keeping your RH(relative humidity) right around 55-60%. This is especially true if you grow Sativa strains,but durban poison seems to be pretty resiliant against mold/fungi as well as spider mites. They don't like it for whatever reason. If you've ever smoked girl scout cookies, I think you'd like durban poison a lot seeing as how it's one of the key ingredients.

I order different several outdoor strains, yet I am concerned that the sun/humidity is too much for some. Please inform me if I am making a mistake. I started with blueberry auto, pineapple auto, strawberry auto.

By latewood_ILGM on 11 July 2017


In hot humid areas with long summers and even longer grow seasons; One might consider Sativa dominant hybrids. In our ILGM seed bank, we have an Amnesia Haze, and a Super Silver Haze. I think you would do well with those type strains.

Indica. Blueberry, Afghan, Kush; Do better indoors because of their shorter finish time. This is also due to the fact that the Hindu Kush, Afghan region is Mountains and short summers and lower temperatures.

Come see us at the forum.

FYI i live in Saudi Arabia in the eastern region and it gets up to 130 F ( 46 ) in summer and its very humid , and also the law here is very strict when it comes to Hash or Weed , and to be honest with you i am a bit worried if i order that i will be caught when its delivered , that's if it ever passes customs, i don't know how you will be sending it and how well it can be hidden
what is your advice and ill order ASAP if you think ill be OK 🙂
once again thanks and take care

Hi AJ, sorry but we don't ship to Saudi Arabia 🙂

Afternoon! do you ship to Portugal?And if you do, what strain on auto would you recommend I use outdoors during winter?(Winter is not very harsh around here, less light than summer days of course, but not even close to snowing or anything)
(Sry for possible mistakes in my English :P)

Best regards!

By Roy ILGM on 9 August 2017

Hi Carlos, yes we ship to your country and you can choose any of the autos they're all suitable for your winters. I personally love Amnesia Haze and off course White Widow is a staple 🙂

By Carlos on 8 August 2017

Also I'd like to point out I'd prefer quality to quantity so I'd like for you to recommend me a potent strain that would do well during winter here. Thanks once again!

Thanks for my growing experience, very great help, along with YouTube. I am growing 4 healthy plants, out doors, Southern California, my 2 auto floweres did great early season, already harvested, this company is legit, I plan to buy more seeds soon, 7 plants out of 15 seeds, was bummed at first, but like I said, I have four trees soon to harvest in October, or when the crystals tell me different,

Best seeds for western Kentucky?

By Oboro on 19 October 2017

Best seeds for North Central KY? I understand seed purchasing laws in this state. Most seeds you sell (feminized) seem to be preferred indoor growth. If I decide to plant, I may germinate as early as 4/20 indoors, plant into "peat pots" and expand into larger "peat pots" as they demand. We have potential for hail and nasty weather here but plants will be protected in bad conditions. I can put off germination but also prefer high yielding but short plants (about 6 feet as tallest). I have grown 8 ft. plants. What is your suggestion for strain?

I think you would like our "Fruity Pack", any of the Kush Strains, White widow. Robers's Gold Leaf yields well.

Happy growing

Hello there.
How about Ecuador, in the middle of the world? 12/12. I've started to grow a sativa, a hybrid (60s-40i) and a rudelaris. My climate is wet.
Would you please give me some tips? Does your book talk about this region.

Have a wonderful new year.

By latewood_ILGM on 11 January 2018


I suggest growing any strain of "Haze". For grow advice; I usggest you join our forum at where we are set up to help you grow successfully. 🙂

i have only 2 question!
1) Temperature is before of june, day time always sunny 25°-30°C, night time is 10°-18°C. Where i live.
its 1200-1500 M. altitude its maybe high, so after seedling 2 or 3 weeks veg. İ wanna grow on mountain, is it possible to grow sir, i can not safe them with anything like metarials, only i can make super soil and watering thats all. i want to harvest before of september.
2) Doyou have ship to turkey?
And how do we have a ship chooise.

By latewood_ILGM on 22 January 2018


I believe if you choose a Kush or Blueberry type strain you could grow it in that time frame. I cannot guarantee that the night temperatures won't be too cold. All I can tell you is to give it a shot and hope for the best.

As far a shipping to Turkey; I suggest you look in the shop and read the shipping policy regarding orders to Turkey.

Best strain for high yeilds indoor

By latewood_ILGM on 22 January 2018

I suggest you peruse the seed stock in the shop. I am sure you can find a suitable strain for indoors. 🙂

By Sunbear on 1 February 2018

I live in northern Canada next to Alaska. A drier climate (no mould issues) with lots of sunlight but cooler temperatures and a short season. I’d like an outdoor autoflower that would do well here with as much of a Sativa high as possible. What would you recommend? Cheers!

By latewood_ILGM on 6 February 2018


You want a fast growing short term plant that is Sativa dominant. That is opposite of what Sativa does. Sativa always takes longer to finish than Indica. Blueberry, and Kush plants would finish fast. Blueberry is more Indica but, Indica finish much sooner than Sativa. As always; I suggest you go in the seed shop and research the auto flowers and find the perfect choice for you.

Looking to help out a disabled buddy of mine in Las Vegas. It is legal to grow 6 plants per household. I need a good seed for him to use. I will be supervising his efforts from NC. Thanks.

By latewood_ILGM on 6 February 2018

Try the Blue dream, White Widow, or the "Fruity Pack" Fp contains Blueberry, Strawberry Kush, and Pineapple Haze. All are excellent and will provide different medicinal efects.

By Eddie Felson on 2 February 2018

I would like to try Autos, in UK & Almeria in Spain. Any direction would be good as an alternative to indoor, I looked at Auto-flowering years ago, but it was not the best back then, now, I'm told that advances have been made and the idea is so confirmed as worthwhile?

By latewood_ILGM on 6 February 2018


I am sorry to say I do not understand your question. Autos are of better quality and potency over the past few years. There are more strains available than years ago. I really like the feminized seeds. Great quality and yield. 🙂

By Samuel on 3 February 2018

What strains will you say is the best for someone in the tropical wet zone? I'm a lover of plants which lean more on the sativa side in terms of high. I will however like a your top three suggestions thanks.

Thanks for the wealth of information shared on here.. great stuff..

By latewood_ILGM on 6 February 2018


Any Haze we have. Super Silver Haze, Amnesia Haze, and Blue Dream would do you very well. 🙂

What are some good auto-flowering strains to grow outdoors in the middle of Oklahoma?

By Richard on 16 May 2018

I assume all purchased seeds produce fertile seeds. If not which ones are those?
