There are various ways to approach outdoor cannabis growing. Some growers prefer to simply sow seeds or plant seedlings straight into the open ground, while others prefer containing their plants within planters or pots. Here, we take a brief look at the pros and cons of each method.
Sensi Seeds’ Early Skunk is an outdoor queen. Not only is it robust and reasonably fast to flower for a Skunk, it is also a very generous producer of luxuriant buds more than generously covered with silver frosting. To make things even more interesting, this strain can thrive in virtually any climate, making it an impressive all-rounder.
Correctly preparing the soil for an outdoor cannabis garden can make all the difference to the quality and size of your eventual harvest. Cannabis has specific requirements in terms of soil quality and texture; here is a brief guide to ensuring all variables are optimized.
Spain is a decentralized country. The advantage (or disadvantage, depending on how you look at it) is that within certain limits, each autonomous region can set down its own cannabis legislation. It is true that the process for the legalisation of cannabis is generally known to be slow – things seem to move in slow motion.
The vast majority of you are probably still hiding under the covers, in front of the fireplace or heater and wrapped in coats, hats and gloves. The cold weather insists on staying and the outdoor growing season seems further away than ever. Don’t give up! Hang in there! The good weather will return, and before you know it, you’ll be digging in your garden again, under a blazing sun, preparing for what surely will be an exquisite harvest.
For those who wish to grow cannabis outdoors, it is extremely important to consider the local climate. When you buy cannabis seeds in shops, it is impossible for sellers to determine exactly the right varieties for your area; they can only give you general indications. You are therefore always recommended to buy varieties from a seed bank that specifies detailed information on the climate, as the team at Sensi Seeds Bank does. Determining the correct variety for the habitat in which you live depends on several factors, such as temperature, precipitation rate, wind, and the average hours of sunlight during the growing season.
Many small-scale growers who intend to smoke their harvest themselves already grow organic cannabis; the same can be said for most medical growers in the U.S., both caregivers and dispensaries. However, commercial growers for the recreational market often don’t grow organically, due to various outdated misconceptions.
A cannabis plant is hardy, but like any other species, its health and vigour will be negatively impacted if it is deprived of essential nutrients. If this is not corrected, it can cause plants to stop growing or even die. Deficiencies in cannabis can be hard to identify, so we have compiled a basic list of what to look out for if things go wrong.
Sensi Seeds’ Shiva Skunk is considered one of the strongest skunks. This strain is the result of the encounter of the famous Skunk #1 with Northern Lights #5. This mix between two of the most prominent cannabis strains has won several Cannabis Cups as a result, making it not only a pillar of cannabis genetics, but also a definite favourite in the eyes of many.
As it was reported, the Conservative government has lost its latest attempt to prevent cannabis patients from growing the plant at home. After a unanimous decision the Federal Court of Appeal is still upholding an injunction that exempts patients from an overhaul of the Canadian medicinal cannabis system.
There are two main schools of thought when it comes to trimming your mature, harvested cannabis flowers. Some believe that trimming should occur prior to drying, while others believe that it should occur once the flowers have dried. Here, we will take a look at the pros and cons of each method.
People living in regions of the planet with cold winters need to take certain steps to ensure success when growing cannabis. However, once certain factors are taken into account, many growers find that winter growing is much less problematic than growing in the height of summer! This guide assumes cultivation is done indoors.
Cannabis is generally a resilient plant, and most strains can tolerate mistakes with feeding and watering to some extent. However, consistently delivering water and nutrients in the wrong concentrations or quantities can cause deep-rooted problems that can prove detrimental—or even fatal—to your crop.
Maximising ultimate yield at harvest is one of the most complex aspects of growing cannabis, and there are varying reports on how best to go about it. Here, we have collated some of the basic, tried-and-tested methods that will set you on course for achieving bumper crops.

The Federal Republic of Germany is the most populous EU member state, with over eighty million inhabitants. Just as with other central European countries, Germany has a long history of cannabis use; today, cannabis is widely used and readily available in most cities, although its cultivation, sale and use remain illegal.
Cannabis is an annual plant—wild plants germinate, grow, flower and die within the course of one year, in response to seasonal variations in daylight; the next year, new plants grow from seeds produced by the previous generation. However, it is possible to rejuvenate a plant after flowering, and ‘trick’ it into producing again.
In the Kingdom of Bhutan, cannabis is so prolific that it is seen as a pest, and is fed to pigs rather than being used by humans for fibre or intoxicant purposes. Bhutan lacks a close connection with the plant. However, there is some evidence of traditional use, and use in modern times is increasing.
