Outdoor growing is the simplest method of cannabis cultivation, as nature will do most of the hard work. Which cannabis strains can be successfully grown outdoors depends entirely on climate. In this Outdoor Cannabis Seeds section, varieties that are suitable for growing out doors in cooler climates can be found. For example, a cannabis strain such as Silver Haze would be very difficult to achieve good results with in a cold climate with few hours of sunlight; however the same strain would thrive if growing outdoors in a sunny, Mediterranean kind of environment.
The many types of marijuana available from both Sensi Seeds and The White Label Seed Company have been categorized by the type of outdoor growing environment they require to produce satisfying results. This information is shown both as icons on the seed packaging and in the detailed descriptions of the strains on this website, enabling growers to see at a glance whether a specific cannabis variety is recommended as Outdoor Cannabis Seeds for outdoor growing in their climate.
Sunny / Mediterranean
All cannabis strains can be grown outside in a warm, sunny climate with a long summer. In the northern hemisphere, many locations below 45N and all locations below 40N will provide an excellent climate for any cannabis strain to grow outside.
Temperate / Continental
Most cannabis strains can be grown outside in climates that have a warm summer with relatively low humidity. Many locations below 50N and virtually all climates below 45N will provide an excellent climate for these cannabis strains to grow outside.
Cold / Cool
A limited number of cannabis strains can grow outside and finish flowering in the short summers of the far northern latitudes or the wet summers of a sea climate. These strains are specifically bred for outdoor growing in the north.
