Sometimes you’re in a rush and want to grow a crop of buds real quick. Unfortunately, you cannot defy the laws of nature and physics, unless you want to Miracle-Gro your crop (which no self respecting grower would ever do anyway). Fortunately, there are some strains that take less time to flower than others. So, what are the fastest flowering strains?

OG Kush

The one, the only, the original OG Kush is one of the fastest flowering strains there is. This hybrid strain flowers in roughly 8 weeks, and is easy to grow indoors or outdoors. You’ll tend to see the best results if you use a hydroponic setup. OG Kush is fairly susceptible to powdery mildew, but should be fine as long as you prune it regularly. This is an excellent strain for beginner growers.

Jamaican Dream

Jamaican Dream is a delightful little treat that typically flowers after only 45 days, which I don’t need to tell you is quite fast. This strain possesses all of the best qualities of both indica and sativa. Jamaican Dream also grows equally well both indoors and outdoors. This hardy plant is perfect for new growers, because it can withstand things that would destroy other plants.

Critical Kush

Critical Kush, an offspring of Critical Mass and the classic OG Kush, is an indica that requires a great deal of room to flourish. If you decide to grow Critical Kush, then make sure that you’re growing in a large enough area your plants can breathe in! This flowers in only 8 weeks and is one of the fastest flowering strains there is, so you can expect a quick harvest.

Purple Cheese

This autoflowering indica dominant strain is known for its sweet and fruity aroma, and being generally less cheesy in flavor than other varieties of cheese strains that are out there. Purple Cheese is best when grown in cooler climates (to bring out the purple colors of the flower), growing 50-80 cm.


The sweet and fruity tasting hybrid strain Hobbit is another strain that will bring a quick and relatively large harvest. This isn’t the fastest flowering strain, as it flowers in just over 65 days, but it’s still pretty fast, in my opinion. People love Hobbit for its sweet taste and pungent, earthy aroma.

White Ryder

The indica dominant hybrid White Ryder, was supposed to be similar to White Widow, but by combining the auto flowering strains, White Dwarf and LowRyder, to make this awesomely potent treat. This strain flowers in under 80 days, and tends to stay pretty short. This makes it easy to grow on the down low and even hide, should the need arise.

Of course, there are other strains that flower fairly quickly, but if you’re in a real rush, then you can’t go wrong with one of these!
