Where Did Autoflowering Strains Come From?
Cinderalla Jack Auto by Dutch Passion (talk about high potency!)
Named after the legendary cannabis activist, Jack Herer Auto is a delightful copy of her photoperiod sister. Packed with 20% THC, the slight Sativa dominance will elevate your mind to unprecedented levels while the Indica works to calm your body in the background.
Autoflowering strains have come a long way in recent years. Many now rival their photoperiod relatives in terms of yield and potency and may even leave them for dead in a race to the finish line. They’ve become a solid choice for both beginner and experienced growers alike. Autoflower seeds offer quick, hassle-free growing without the need to worry about light manipulation or long flowering times.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself whistling while scrubbing that big pile of dishes. As the name suggests, you can expect a vibrant citrus cocktail of flavor – somewhere between tangerine and mandarin. She’s a pretty hefty yielder as well; growers can aim for 450-650g/m2 indoors (1.5-2.1oz/ft2) and 50-350g (1.75-12.3oz) per plant outdoors.
Zkittlez OG Auto – Perfectly Balanced Hybrid
Get ready for the giggles with this monster autoflowering strain from Herbies Seeds. Godzilla Cookies Auto has been named after the prehistoric sea monster for good reason. Not only does she grow tall with thick, meaty buds, but she also provides outrageously high THC levels of 27%.
Autoflowering strains yield less because they’re smaller and don’t have as much time to develop their flowers. You can offset this by choosing naturally higher-yielding autoflowering strains, such as those mentioned in this article. You can also plant a greater number of seeds and use various growing methods to increase yields, such as Screen of Green (ScrOG) or Sea of Green (SOG).
