weed seeds ireland

As mentioned earlier in this article, a short cycle is very important for a successful outdoor breeding in Ireland. Autoflowers are therefore a good choice anyway. The AK 47 autoflower has a high mold resistance, will develop a strong trunk and is ready for harvest within 3 months. If you plant the seeds at the beginning of May, you can already harvest at the end of July or the beginning of August.

Cannabis seeds Ireland: the law and the best for outdoors!

Also in Ireland you will find many home growers who would like to grow a few plants. For example outdoors in the garden or in a h >Growing weed in ireland outdoors is therefore challenging.

Although no marijuana species is invincible, growers should be well informed about the type of seed so that they choose a species that is suitable for the climate of Ireland. However, the climate is not the only thing that you have to take into account. Also the law is important. Are you curious about what you should pay attention to and which cannabis seeds you can choose best for growing outdoors? Then read this blog about cannabis seeds Ireland.

What should you take into account when you plant cannabis seeds (outdoors) in Ireland?

Different points of interest apply for breeding in Ireland. Do you want to prevent problems? Then check the most important points of attention below.

The law

Many of our visitors from Ireland wonder if cannabis seeds are legal. The answer is actually quite simple. Cannabis seeds are legal but cannabis itself isn’t. Both the possession and sale of cannabis seeds is therefore completely legal and doesn’t fall under the drugs law as long as they are not germinated. Germinating the seeds and growing cannabis plants is in fact prohibited unless you have a permit from the Minister for Public Health. We therefore only sell the seeds as a souvenir. Do you decide to germinate the seeds? Then this is totally on your own risk.

Germination and first phase

Most growers will germinate their seeds in April so that they are ready for spring vegetation. However, in Ireland you should not plant your seeds too early. Especially since you may still have to deal with night frost like in Northern Ireland . It’s therefore advisable to keep a close eye on the weather before you start the germination process. Moreover, because a seedling is still very susceptible to bad weather and infections it’s advisable to germinate and grow the seeds indoors the first 2 to 3 weeks before you move the plant outside. By carrying out the first phase of the plant indoors you considerably increase the chance of a successful cultivation.

To tackle it even better, we advise you to get your plant used to the outside conditions. You can do this by placing the plant outside for a few hours every day for the first 2 to 3 weeks. Build the number of hours outside slowly until your plant is fully accustomed.

Rain and mold

Although the terpenic compounds of the cannabis plant work as an anti-fungal, this is not indefinite. The climate of Ireland must be taken seriously for in order to reduce the risk of mold and top rot. We therefore advise you to grow your plants in pots with holes at the bottom. In this way the excess water can easily drain away. In addition, you can easily move the plant indoors when the weather gets really bad. Finally, you will have to check your plants regularly for signs of water stress and top rot. You can also reduce the chance of mold by growing in a greenhouse.

Which species are best for the (northern) climate of Ireland?

Due to the limited sunlight, you need a variety without too much shadowing so an indica species is an obvious choice. This species originated in cold and mountainous climates and is therefore also suitable for the climate of Ireland. The broad leaves ensure that the light is well captured and the layer formation acts as insulation.

Top 3 best cannabis seeds in Ireland

You can of course choose all types for indoor growing, but if you grow outdoors and choose an unsuitable species for the climate of Ireland, growing can become very difficult. Choosing the right species is therefore very important. Think for example of a species with a high fungal resistance and a short life cycle. So what are the best weed seeds to grow outdoors in Ireland for a successful outdoor grow? Check the best weed strains below.

1. Blue Cheese auto

Although this species has a slightly longer flowering time than an average autoflower, the Blue Cheese is very suitable for the climate of Ireland. Moreover, the plant doesn’t grow that tall so you can grow unnoticed. Blue Cheese is known for its fairly calming effect and is a wonderful weed for daily use. In addition, easy to grow and a nice outdoor harvest that can reach up to 400 grams per m2.

2. AK 47 (auto)

As mentioned earlier in this article, a short cycle is very important for a successful outdoor breeding in Ireland. Autoflowers are therefore a good choice anyway. The AK 47 autoflower has a high mold resistance, will develop a strong trunk and is ready for harvest within 3 months. If you plant the seeds at the beginning of May, you can already harvest at the end of July or the beginning of August.

3. White Widow (auto)

The White Widow is such a species that can actually be grown in almost any climate and produces a good yield even under the most miserable conditions. Therefore the White Widow should certainly not be missing in this overview. Again technically we recommend the autoflower for Ireland, but the feminized seeds are also suitable. Especially if you have some grow experience. The choice is yours!

If you are going to grow in a super discreet place and the height of the plant is not a issue, so don’t hesitate to buy outdoor cannabis seeds who can give you massive harvests. If you live in a northern climate, you will to take care of the September October rains who can damage the harvest with moist. We advice you to go for some strains like Jamaican Dream, Kilimanjaro, Northern Light, Pakistan Valley, Early Girl by Sensi Seeds, Phatt Fruity or Pyramid Seeds Wembley.

Outdoor Seeds

We are in Spring and Summer will arrive in a few weeks. It’s time to buy some cannabis seeds for growing outdoor. To optimize the harvest and regarding your geographical situation, you need to find the perfect strain particularly if you leave in a climate type UK or Ireland.

So which Outdoor seeds should I buy?

If you want to grow in your garden, you should choose a short strain. Indeed, to avoid indiscreet looks or thieves, it’s better not to have a 3 meter marijuana tree. In this case we recommend cannabis seeds like :

  • Aurora Indica
  • Black Domina
  • California Indica
  • Great White Shark
  • Jock Horror
  • Mazar

or C99. There is so much more short cannabis strains but it’s impossible to memorize them all.

Botafumeiros give incredible harvest. Easy Sativa could be a very wise choice too. The Og kush, and it’s not a surprise is really good outdoor. If you are a cannabis landrace amateur, we recommend to grow the outdoor cannabis seed “the Cannabiogen Taskenti”.

Here is a good exemple of a little oudoor plantation you can get with good outdoor cannabis seeds.

Many marijuana growers are afraid that their climate (Uk, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Sweden . ) is too wet, too dry, too cold or their season too short for good cannabis growing. Others are afraid it is impossible to be discreet with outdoor plants. Well nothing is impossible with our favorite plant.

As mentioned earlier in this article, a short cycle is very important for a successful outdoor breeding in Ireland. Autoflowers are therefore a good

Best Outdoor Cannabis Seeds

If you’ve ever tried to grow cannabis outdoors up north and failed it was probably due to the fact that you used a poorly suited cannabis strain. Most cannabis varieties have evolved in warm tropical climates with long growing seasons.

However, years of development have produced some super strains ideal for growing in the UK and Ireland as well as north-western Europe in general. The same strains will also do well in Canada, especially the west coast with its cooler summers, and cooler parts of the northern United States.

These select marijuana strains can grow incredibly well in our short growing season. They need to have fast growth, a short flowering cycle, mould resistance, and of course result in decent harvests of great tasting potent weed.

Taking the above factors into consideration, the best cannabis seed strains for growing outdoors in the UK and Ireland are listed below.

Indica outdoor strains

For a good body buzz and often helpful for medical use, these hardy Indica-dominant strains are excellent for outdoor growing in northern Europe.

Holland’s Hope

This indica-dominant strain is called Holland’s Hope because it was specially bred for the cool, wet and short summers of Holland – almost identical to what we get here in the British Isles.

In short, it’s designed to grow outside around here so you will experience no problems getting a successful crop in by September.

As well as being hardy, another feature of this special strain is high mould resistance. (If you’ve ever lost an entire crop to mould blight then you know how important this is.)

Holland’s Hope is one of the oldest Dutch strains and has simply raised the standard for outdoor performance throughout northwest Europe.

Genetically an indica, Holland’s Hope plants will stay compact, growing a metre or two high, and give a hefty yield of up to a kilo per plant, although this will depend on the outdoor conditions. The flowering time is 7-8 weeks so it can usually be harvested in late September.

So what’s it like when harvested? Well, it has a sweet rich taste, THC levels of 14-15%, and will give you a very pleasant heavy body buzz. It’s also popular with medical users since it’s so relaxing it can help relieve stress and pain.

Holland’s Hope is another excellent outdoor strain for north-western Europe, and anywhere else with a similar climate.

Early Girl

Early Girl is one of the quickest maturing outdoor Indicas you’ll get (not counting autoflowers), with a flowering period of just 50-60 days (7-8 weeks).

Early Girl is also a predictable and resilient strain and can be grown almost anywhere outdoors – even in a small space like a balcony or rooftop garden.

Early Girl is impressive, producing long stems covered in fat resinous buds, many of which stay close to the central stem, giving the appearance of one massive column of delicious sticky bud.

Although Early Girl is Indica-dominant (from Afghani and north India strains), her Mexican Sativa influence is definitely apparent. You’ll get a smooth and durable buzz touched with a subtle Sativa high.

Sativa outdoor strains

If you like your smoke to be high in THC and psychoactive then these strong Sativa strains are a good bet for the northern European or northern North American grower.

Jamaican Pearl

Jamaican Pearl is a Caribbean Sativa adapted for the north-western European climate. It was a labour of love for the Sensi Seeds breeders – who first bred it – who were keen to bring powerful Caribbean Sativa genes to growers further north.

Jamaican Pearl is a hybrid of their original Marley’s Collie strain and Early Pearl. The result is a strong potent and dependable Sativa.

Jamaica Pearl quickly grows quite tall though can take up to 10 weeks for flowering. So not the earliest outdoor harvest yet certainly one of the heaviest.

You’ll get a great yield of sweet and potent pot, with tropical flavours and a bright cerebral high. No wonder Jamaican Pearl is now one of Sensi Seeds’ most popular outdoor strains.

Durban

Durban is possibly one of the most well-known strains for performing outdoors and maturing quickly for an early harvest.

It’s originally a subtropical strain – named for the South African city of Durban. However, several seedbanks have now bred a strain which does equally well in northern temperate climates too.

Durban is one of the purest Sativas you can find these days and is more compact than more equatorial Sativas, becoming branchy and bushy.

You can usually harvest Durban by the end of September.

Durban’s sticky bright buds have a lovely lemony aniseed flavour. But watch out for the powerful punch it very quickly packs. Durban was originally called Durban Poison due to its highly intoxicating effects. Your head will be firmly in the clouds in no time.

Try an autoflower for outdoor growing in the north

If you want fast growing and early harvesting get an auto-flowering strain. Autoflowering strains can be harvested in as little as 70 days from germination, meaning that it is possible to have multiple plantings and harvests within one growing season.

Autoflowering strains do not have the heavy yields of the top grade cannabis strains listed below but you can make up for that by planting lots and planting often.

Big Bud autofem would not be a bad one to start with!

Big Bud Automatic – heavy yielding, potent, medicinal

Big Bud Automatic is aptly named as its a top-yielding autoflower.

Big Bud Automatic is not only a heavy producer but is remarkably easy to grow, a vigorous yet compact strain which does well outdoors.

Big Bud autofem begins flowering 6-8 weeks after germination, with a flowering period of under 7 weeks, so you can time when you plant it so that it will flower during the warmest and sunniest months, wherever you are located. And, since it’s automatic (and not dependent on specific light periods), it can flower in those long northern summer days.

Big Bud‘s big buds are dense and resinous, with strong scents and flavours

As an Indica-dominant strain of Afghan and Skunk heritage, you can expect a powerful physical stone accompanied by a sensual head high (due to those Sativa Skunk genes). It’s a sensual smoke even before it hits you with its fruity and pungent and musky aromas and flavours.

Big Bud is also excellent for medicinal use since it has a good balance of THC and CBD.
