Best Seeds for Winter

October 19, 2017 iceheadshop

One of the best ways to cultivate a diverse collection of seeds from our vault is by taking a closer look at the seasonality of seeds and how they’ve been bred for warmer, or colder climates.

Here we take a look at the best cannabis seeds for winter and what makes them so appealing to us and collectors. But first, how can you tell if it’s a good choice for winter?

 

Ideal characteristics

- Originally come from a cold climate, such as Tibet and the Himalayas… even the UK

- Higher percentage of Indica to Sativa (as a general rule)

- Quickly reach maturity eg. fast, autoflowering strains

- Resilient, outdoor strains that are heavy and thick

So, if you live somewhere a bit cooler, or are just boosting your set for the cold winter months, here are some strains you definitely want to take a look at:

Super Skunk Seeds

Super Skunk is a strain that’s world famous and known for its epic aroma and chilled out personality. Sensi Seeds hybrid is one of the best versions you’ll find and is a whopping 80% indica to 20% sativa mix. Yields are large, with outdoor performance only slightly below that of indoors.

Cheesy, earthy and sweet, there’s no denying the appeal of this easy to handle skunk. Crafted from Skunk #1 X Afghani Strain, she’s resilient and boasts a flowering time of 45-50 days. The cherry on the cake if you’re a THC fan is the 18% strength this can produce.

OG Kush Seeds

One of the favourites across the pond in the states, OG Kush Seeds have won multiple High Times Cannabis Cup awards and have a proven track record for impressive yields and huge THC levels, up to 22%! Bred by Kush Seeds, these beauties can be ready in just 10 weeks and in short, no collection is complete without them.

While it’s got a tropical background, it does well in the US and UK and rewards with a delicious aroma that’s truly intoxicating.

White Widow Auto

Having a White Widow Auto to hand can provide great comfort and company in the winter months and with 65% Indica, she doesn’t mind the cold, dark nights. Full of boundless energy and a sweet, citrusy scent, her Dutch genetics have her looking in great form; powerful and potent to say the least.

As an auto, you can’t go wrong if you’re a beginner facing your first winter.

Super Silver Haze

Dinafem Seeds version of the Super Silver Haze is an epic mix of being 100% feminised, high in THC and fast flowering. Ready to take on the outdoors and the cold as necessary, she’ll be ready in around 70 to 80 days. Powerful and made with stand out genetics from Northern Lights, Haze and Skunk, she’s everything you’d expect from a haze and then some. If she gets lonely, just grab some LED lights.

Oh, one last thing, remember these seeds are collectibles and are not for germination. Check the law where you are.
