In spring, a young cannabis aficionado’s thoughts turn to growing legal weed! Here’s an article from our Friends at Prima Clones with some strains to help set you up for success in outdoor growing in Michigan.
It’s not news to Michiganders that growing cannabis outdoors with the fall harvest climate is a challenge. For outdoor cultivators, challenge accepted.
How, then, does one set themselves up for success in outdoor cannabis? First, identify the potential issues. In Michigan, the biggest issues revolve around climate. The early rains, cold nights, and minimal sun exposure in October breed proper conditions for mold growth.
The solution: cannabis genetics designed and selected for Michigan outdoor cultivation.
At Prima Clones we select cultivars for specific properties: yields, terpenes, flowering times, and resistance to mold and pests. Prima Clones has five genetics that have been specifically incorporated into our catalogue for outdoor cannabis cultivation in Michigan: Cherry Punch, THC Bomb, Mai Tai, Peyote Cookies, and Brioche French Toast #4.
Cherry Punch is one of our favorite cultivators at the moment. It finishes in 56 days with excellent structure, vigorous growth, mold/pest resistance, and insane bag appeal. She’s a cross of Cherry AK-47 and Purple Punch, both legends in their own right. Allele Genetics hunted and provided this cut to our catalogue and you won’t be disappointed if you decide to place her outside.
Mai Tai was bred by Jungle Boys and is an outstanding cross of Sunset Sherbet and Purple Punch. She finishes in 60 days, has an ideal structure, great vigor, and the bag appeal of the purps.
THC Bomb from Bomb Seeds, is a potent hybrid that we pheno-hunted specifically for the Michigan outdoor climate.
She grows remarkably quickly, finishes in 56 days, and has a potency of over 25% THC when grown and harvested correctly. An outdoor cultivators dream girl.
Peyote Cookies is another in-house pheno hunted selection dedicated to the Michigan outdoor cultivator. Bred by Barney’s Farm, this selection has insane bag appeal, is mold resistant and yields heavily. Prima Clone’s loves the purps and she is our #1 choice for outdoor cultivar of the year.
Brioche French Toast #4 is a 303 Seeds x Prima Clones exclusive that brings the Haze back to 2021. This sativa hybrid finishes quickly, has an open growth structure, and is non-market exposed – meaning you can build a brand on this lady. A cross of Maui French Toast and THC Bomb, she has a remarkable level of CBN (1.2%) and will quickly yield you an incredible harvest of truly unique flower.
No matter your choice of medium or cultivation style, the cultivars above will provide you the strongest chance of crushing your outdoor cannabis yields in 2021. From Prima Clones, we wish you the greatest success in 2021 and beyond!
