All marijuana strains are not the same. For this reason, it is very important to think about which one of the strains may be best, especially if you are new to marijuana growing. Once you know this, then you can begin to develop skills to grow marijuana at home in your garden (legally, of course). There are certain stains that demonstrate better flexibility to pests, mold, drought, temperature and diseases. Others tend to need less nutrients.

The Novice

If you are a novice at growing marijuana, then you may want to avoid using strains based only on genetics. Try to determine your choice based on ease in locating the ones that offer the highest yields and best quality. The question now is where to begin. Below are five easy to grow marijuana strains and if you are a novice grower, this is where you want to start. Think about finding the clones or seeds that will give you a head start.

Top 5 Easy to Grow Marijuana Strains

Blue Dream

Blue Dream is very popular among cannabis consumers. It is easy to grow and its effect after smoking is a balance between feeling physically relaxed and blissfully mellow and high. So, let's say you have issues with bad moods, and aches and pain during the daytime, this is one of the ideal marijuana strains to counteract this.

This is a hybrid strain based out of the state of California. The seeds and clones are easily found and it is not one of those that will rot or mildew in the root.

Green Crack

Green Crack strain is also based in the state of California. It is excellent for novice growers who want to find that green thumb. Green Crack has been long standing in the outdoor scene.

It is a great choice for people looking for a sativa-dominant option. It has a sweet citrus smell and gives the user more energy, resulting in an uplifting high. Usually sativa strains have a long flowering period and upward stretch, which makes it challenging to grow. However, Green Crack is different.

It can be easily managed and because of it has indica genetics, the flowering time is quicker with a high quality yield. The only unfortunate thing is that this is one of the marijuana strains that can only be cloned. This makes it hard to find anywhere else, but the west Coast.

Gorilla Glue #4

The Gorilla Glue #4 is a hybrid option. It has a strong aroma, but an excellent selection for the novice marijuana grower who wants to cultivate a plant with sedative properties. This came on the scene in 2014, after it won multiple awards at the Cannabis Cups.

It has a busy pattern during growth, making it the perfect choice for those growers without much space to plant using the “screen of green” method. Because of its heavy resin, it is also ideal for creating hash and concentrate products.

Dutch Treat

Dutch Treat is originally from Amsterdam, but can be found also in the Pacific Northwest. It is a hybrid strain, but with some indica dominance. It is ideal for indoor growth and its yield is high. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, this is one of the best marijuana strains to grow.


Cinex is one of the marijuana stains that is sativa-dominant with a THC level of about 22%. It has strong euphoric traits. It is also suitable to use the “screen for green” method, if you only have a small space to grow marijuana. It is resistant to mold and mildew, making it easy to grow.
