5 Great Auto-flowering Seed Reviews 2016: Part 2

We looked here at 5 wonderful choices of auto-flowering seeds.

Today we’ll review 5 more seeds which will result in high-grade marijuana in no time at all.

Speed from seed to harvest is one of the major advantages of auto-flowerers over regular photoperiod strains of cannabis. The other significant plus point is the generally small stature of these plants. Those with space limitations or the need to grown stealthily will appreciate this.

In the first review, we examined plants which were mainly Sativa.

Sativa plants are generally tall with loose branches. Their leaves are narrow and long. Indica plants, by contrast, are shorter with much denser branches. The leaves are substantially wider.

In terms of effects, sativa is usually considered best for daytime use. It is more uplifting and energetic. The high is cerebral. There are normally greater levels of CBD than THC. These cannabinoids are the psychoactive ingredients present in marijuana.

Indica variants are preferred for the night. They are relaxing and calm while tending to inhibit movement. This effect is sometimes known as couch-lock. Indicas are THC-dominant with less CBD. This leads to a more sedative effect.

So, let’s check out 5 more first-rate options which are more Indica-heavy.

1) Dwarf Low Flyer Auto-flower

This unusual strain has been very carefully bred and has some interesting genetics. Low Ryder and Early Girl were mixed with the standard Ruderalis to induce auto-flowering properties. The result is the Indica-heavy Dwarf Low Flyer Auto-flower.

Many people do not want a strain which hits too hard and takes them out of commission. Dwarf Low Flyer has pretty low levels of THC which leads to a subdued and natural high.

The twin advantages of this strain are the incredibly swift processing time – just one and a half months from seed to harvest – and it’s ultra-compact size. Even when fully grown, it won’t reach beyond a couple of feet in height.

If you are looking for a plant that doesn’t take up a great deal of room and needs precious little maintenance then Dwarf Low Flyer is a smart choice.

The only real drawback here is the limited yield. This, though, can be offset with the frequency of harvests due to a 6 week turnaround.

THC Level: 11%
Indica/Sativa: 70% Indica
Grow difficulty: Easy to Moderate
Yield: 75-100g/m²
Flowering time: 6 weeks
Effect: A very natural high

2) NYC Diesel Auto-flower

The auto-flower version is extremely straightforward to grow and will yield a quarter kilo in less than two months.

The taste is an appetizing mixture of sweet fuel – hence the Diesel name – and citrus. The aroma is unique and pungent.

NYC Diesel has an extremely relaxing effect when smoked which encompasses the whole body. People prone to anxiety often favor this strain. It promotes relaxation and has no tendency to induce paranoia.

This plant is very low maintenance and suited to novice growers. It’s really compact so great for a subtle grow operation and, as with all auto-flowering varieties of marijuana, gets to harvest in no time at all.

THC Level: 15%
Indica/Sativa: Hybrid
Grow difficulty: Easy
Yield: 250g/m²
Flowering time: 7 weeks

Short Rider offers the ideal combination of a very brief growing time and a bountiful harvest.

Buds are both fragrant and fruity. The effect is relaxing with a nice balance between THC and CBD.

If you are just starting out and want a hassle-free grow then Short Rider fits the bill. It’s also superb if you are pressed for time or impatient.

4) Critical Thunder Auto-flower

Put simply, Critical Thunder is one of the more potent strains on the market.

Although this is not among the quickest of auto-flowerers to come to harvest, this is balanced out by truly tremendous yields.

The lengthier grow time allows the buds to fully develop. They become very dense and the crop is plentiful.

This Indica strain is a surprisingly tasty mixture of earthy tones undercut with citrus fruit. The smell is similar to the flavor. It’s sweet and semi-musky.

Critical Thunder is named for the extraordinarily powerful high it delivers so take this into account. The high is long-lasting as well as potent. It hits the mind and body together.

Ideal for medical marijuana users, the predominance of Indica means that Critical Thunder can help with sleeping and pain relief.

Note: Due to its strength, consume moderately to avoid coughing too much and exercise caution if you are not a regular user.

Among auto-flowering plants, strains like Critical Thunder prove that the science has come a very long way indeed since the early Low Ryder plants.

THC Level: 18%
Indica/Sativa: Mainly Indica
Grow difficulty: Moderate
Yield: 300-400g/m²
Flowering time: 8-10 weeks

Bluetooth offers a winning combination of a devastating high along with a sweet taste and flavor. It’s fruity with a hint of blueberry. If you have a sweet tooth then this strain will not disappoint.

Even seasoned smokers will appreciate the powerhouse effects delivered by this plant. Enter couch-lock mode soon after inhaling and enjoy a relaxed, Indica-heavy high.

With a quick grow time of roughly 65 days, this short plant thrives in small spaces. The yield is impressive.

The buds are sticky and literally shining with THC.
