Indica dominant Gorilla Candy is a cross between the super-famous Gorilla Glue #4 and the rather less famous Papa’s Candy.  Basically, this is a strain for anyone who wants a big yield and is prepared to put in a bit of work to get it.

Gorilla Candy marijuana strain

Even though Gorilla Candy is 75% Indica, it has average THC of 18.5% to 23% and low CBD.  The initial effect is one of happiness, even euphoria and this gradually mellows into a feeling of happy relaxation.  Overall, therefore, Gorilla Candy is better suited to use in the daytime rather than the evening, although you could probably use this in the early evening and still expect to get to sleep at night.  As always, leave plenty of time to refocus before doing anything complicated, especially driving. 

Indoors, Gorilla Candy will flower in 7 to 8 weeks and outdoors it will be ready around the middle to end of October.  The indoor height range is about 0.8M to 1M but outdoors it can grow to 2M to 3M depending on exactly how long it has to mature.  Indoor yields can be up to 600g/m2 and outdoor yields up to 2Kg per plant.  In addition to the main yield of bud, you will definitely want to hold on to the trim from this strain as it is full of resin and ideal for making cannabis concentrates.

We’ve classed Gorilla Candy as being moderately difficult to grow because it’s a large, photoperiod strain and as such is going to need a bit of hands-on management.  To begin with, it grows in the classic Indica “Christmas-tree shape”, which means that you need to remember to leave plenty of space for it to grow outwards as well as upwards.  Remember that if your airflow is compromised, you could lose your entire harvest to mould or an attack of disease or pests, which would be both heartbreaking and ironic as this strain is generally pretty robust.   

Additionally, Gorilla Candy has very wide leaves, which means that there’s a distinct possibility you’re going to need to get to grips with trimming to make sure that the light gets into the whole plant rather than being blocked by the leaves.  Last, but by no means least, you’re going to need to be ready to deal with a hearty appetite for food and nutrients, but not kill your plants with kindness by overdoing it. 

In terms of flavour and aroma, Gorilla Candy balances candy sweetness with spiciness and hints of coffee for a refreshing edge.

Balanced hybrid Godzilla Glue is a punningly-named cross between King Kong (brutal cut) and the famous Gorilla Glue 4.  It really can deliver monster-sized yields of excellent cannabis. 

Godzilla Glue Cannabis Strain

The THC content of Godzilla Glue depends very much on how long you give it to mature.  It can be anywhere from 17% to 25%.  At the lower end, it will give you a positive mental boost.  At the upper end it will deliver a powerful high.  Because of this, you need to think carefully about what you want so you can time your harvest appropriately.  CBD is fairly low, so although you’ll be relaxed and dreamy, possibly even quite drowsy, you’re unlikely to be left couchlocked for hours on end.  This means that, in principle, you can use Godzilla Glue day or evening but if you’re aiming to produce maximum THC, then you might want to keep the strain for daytime use only. 

One of the interesting points about Godzilla Glue is that its size can vary significantly depending on growing conditions and, in particular, whether it is grown indoors or outdoors.  Indoors, its height can range between 0.7M and 1.4M and it can produce up to 1.5Kg/m2 although for this sort of yield, you’ll need to let your plants grow to their maximum height and use training techniques.  Outdoors, Godzilla Glue can grow to anything between 1.8M and 2.8M and produce up to 1.5Kg per plant. 

The indoor flowering period is 8 to 9 weeks and the outdoor harvest is in the middle of September.  Godzilla Glue isn’t exactly a fussy strain, in fact, from a purely objective perspective, it’s actually very robust with good resilience to mould, diseases and pests.  It’s just big and that brings some challenges. 

If you want to grow indoors, you will either need plenty of space (both horizontally and vertically as the branches will need to spread) or you’ll need to get to grips with plant training.  If you’re growing outdoors, you’ll need to keep the buds dry as well as warm and lit, otherwise you could end up with a heartbreaking 1.5Kg of mouldy mush.  In either case, you’re going to need to satisfy a hearty appetite for water and nutrients without panicking and overdoing it. 

In terms of flavour and aroma, Godzilla Glue is less complex than its more famous relative.  It’s essentially a diesel strain with notes of sweetness and pine for a bit of contrast.

Sativa dominant Auto Desfran is a cross between Desfrán and Auto Daiquiri Lime.  It’s all kinds of unusual but if you’re a beginner looking for a manageable Sativa and/or space is tight but you still want those Sativa genetics, then Auto Desfran could be for you. 

Even though Auto Desfran is almost pure Sativa, it has a fairly mild 19% THC.  This means that it delivers an uplifting, motivational boost rather than a jet-propelled high.  There is minimal CBD, so basically this is one for the daytime.  It’s a great choice either as a “wake and bake” strain, as a means to deliver fast, effective pain relief or to deal with certain mental and/or emotional conditions.  Obviously, make sure your head is fully clear before doing anything complex, especially driving. 

The bad news about Auto Desfran is that it has a 15-week grow cycle.  This is seed to bud, but is still pretty lengthy, especially by modern standards.  On the plus side, it only reaches about 1M in height, which does put it on the taller side for a modern autoflowering strain, but still keeps it compact enough to be fairly easy to squeeze into a tight growing space. 

Auto Desfran, like its parent, is grown essentially as a connoisseur’s strain rather than for yield.  The 475g/m2 it will produce in capable hands is pretty decent for a strain this size, but there are plenty of other, compact strains which can produce at least as much in less time. 

The lengthy grow cycle was the main reason Auto Desfran was classed as having medium grow difficulty.  Basically, the longer a strain needs to mature, the longer there is for something to go wrong.  That said, in general terms, Auto Desfran is pretty robust and unfussy with good resilience to mould, diseases and pests.  In short, as long as you pay attention to you cannabis basics, especially with regard to ventilation, you should be absolutely fine with this strain.  Good odour control is also highly recommended, especially in the later stages of flowering. 

It terms of taste and aroma, Auto Desfran is a blend of tropical fruit, orchard fruit (apples and pears) and skunk.  The scent is pretty intense so if you’re smoking of vaping, you’ll need to be considerate to those around you.

Indica dominant Wedding Gelato is a three-way cross between Wedding Cake, Gelato and Gelato 33, which effectively means it’s a new variation on one of the most popular strains in cannabis, namely Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. 

Wedding Gelato by Royal Queen Seeds

Even though Wedding Gelato is 60% Indica dominant, it has a hefty 25% average THC and low CBD.  This means that the effect is actually much more like what you’d expect from a quality Sativa.  The main benefit of this strain is that you get a really, uplifting, motivational, euphoric high which just blasts away both crippling physical pain and negative mental states.   

This then mellows into a very light body buzz, which will leave you superbly relaxed and in a very pleasant daydream but it’s unlikely that you’ll feel sleepy, let alone couchlocked.  That said, the pleasant, chilled sensation can last for quite a while, so you’ll need to allow plenty of time for it to wear off completely.  Overall, therefore, Wedding Gelato is really a strain for daytime use and, of course, you’ll need to make sure you’re fully refocussed before doing anything complicated, like driving. 

The indoor flowering time is 8 to 9 weeks and the outdoor harvest period is early October.  Indoors, Wedding Gelato has a height range of between 0.6M and 1M and can yield up to 500g/m2.  Outdoors, it has a height range of between 1.3M and 2M and can yield up to 400g per plant. 

We’ve classed Wedding Gelato as being of medium difficulty because it’s a photoperiod strain, which means that if you’re growing indoors, you’re going to need to manage light cycles.  If you’re growing outdoors, then you’re going to need to take great care to pick a very sheltered growing site.  Alternatively, you could use a greenhouse, but if you do, then make sure that you allow plenty of space per container so that your plants can spread outwards as well as upwards without the air flow being compromised.  That’s really about the only challenge with this strain.  For the most part, it’s very robust and unfussy with good resistance to mould, diseases and pests. 

The flavour and aroma of Wedding Gelato is a bit like a creamy vanilla custard brightened up with a dash of lemon and mint.  There is a solid, earthy base to add a bit of depth, however, overall this is definitely a strain for people with a sweet tooth.

Indica dominant Purple Lemonade has genetics from purple and citrus Cali along with ruderalis.  It’s a nice, all-round strain which makes a good choice for beginners. 

Purple Lemonade has average THC of 22%, which is enough to generate a mood boost, which is relaxing as well as uplifting.  You may feel a bit giggly, but the Indica genetics mean that overall the experience is more mellow than you’d expect from a Sativa with similar THC content.  Having said that, the CBD content is fairly low, which means that body buzz is deeply relaxing and will probably make you feel dreamy or perhaps mildly drowsy but it’s not going to leave you couchlocked for hours at a time.  In other words, this is a very flexible strain which can be used day or night.  Obviously, if you’re using it in the daytime, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to recover before doing anything complicated, such as driving. 

As Purple Lemonade is an autoflowering strain, the grow time is 8 to 9 weeks (seed to bud) regardless of whether you grow indoors or outdoors.  In principle, this means that you can grow outdoors whenever you want.  In practice, you’re going to need to keep local weather conditions in mind when you decide when to plant your seeds.  In particular you’ll need to keep your plants dry, as well as warm and sunny, as wet buds are very vulnerable to the dreaded mould.  Alternatively you could split the difference and use a greenhouse, remembering to space out your plants and implement effective odour control. 

Purple Lemonade grows to a compact 0.7M to 1.1M and is pretty as well as productive.  You get bright purple buds set off by orange pistils and framed by dark green leaves covered with plenty of glittery resin crystals, which are a slightly-pinkish white.  The buds are clustered in multiple sites around the stem and have great internodal spacing, which makes this strain a good candidate for low-stress training.  Treat Purple Lemonade with a bit of tender loving care and you could harvest as much as 500g/m2 or 450g per plant outdoors.  Beginners might not get quite so much but should still be able to gather a very decent crop. 

In terms of flavour and aroma, Purple Lemonade really is essentially lemon all the way, but it’s a mixture of sour lemon and sweet lemon which is crisply refreshing.

Sativa dominant (albeit only just) Sweet Gelato Auto is a cross between San Francisco Bay (California): Gelato and Killer Kush Auto.  Gelato itself is a cross between the famous Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet while Killer Kush Auto has OG Kush genetics.  Basically, this strain may be fairly new, but it has an impressive pedigree.

Sweet Gelato Auto

Sweet Gelato Auto has average THC levels of 18% to 23% and low CBD (about 0.1%).  It produces a bright, energetic, creative head high, but the anchoring effect of the Indica genetics means that it’s happy and positive rather than out-and-out euphoric.  This transitions into a light body stone, which is very comfortable while it lasts, but won’t leave you couchlocked for extended periods.  Overall, therefore Sweet Gelato Auto is a really flexible strain, which can be used during the day or at night.

Regardless of whether you grow indoors or outdoors, Sweet Gelato Auto will need about 8 weeks to go from seed to bud.  As its growth cycle is governed by age rather than light, it can be grown outdoors at any time of year.  Obviously, however, you’re still going to have to think about the weather in general.  As with most cannabis strains, Sweet Gelato Auto has a distinct preference for warm, dry, sunny conditions.

Although yields are listed below as medium, that’s in comparison to cannabis plants in general.  Given that Sweet Gelato Auto is a pint-sized 0.6M to 1M in height, its yields of up to 500g/m2 (indoors) and 175g per plant (outdoors) are actually pretty impressive.

Overall Sweet Gelato Auto is really beginner-friendly.  In fact it would make a perfect first grow, especially since it is both robust and quick.  The only point to watch is that its buds are very dense (hence the high yields).  This means that they can easily fall victim to mould if they get wet. 

It should be easy to avoid this indoors, just space out your plants properly to maintain good air-flow.  Outdoors, you’re going to have to pick your growing site with some care and be ready to dry out your buds manually if they need it.  Alternatively, split the difference and use a greenhouse.

In terms of flavour and aroma, Sweet Gelato Auto has a base of earth and wood, the body is very much Kush and the top notes are a balance of sweet fruits and nuts with touches of citrus and mint.

Purple Punch is a 90% Indica-dominant cross between Grandaddy Purple and Larry OG. It’s a compact, tasty and high-yielding strain. 

Image of Purple Punch Cola

Even though Purple Punch is almost pure Indica, it can have up to 25% THC.  This is enough to treat even severe, chronic pain.  The high is a nice chilled, sedative effect which may not be enough to leave you couchlocked.  It will, however, leave you far too comfortable to want to get up.  It’s therefore a good idea to have some snacks and drinks handy.  This level of THC means the marijuana munchies are a given. 

Given its Granddaddy Purple heritage, Purple Punch is probably best suited to use at night time.  And is ideal for those that may need a little help getting to sleep.  It also has the muscle needed to treat serious pain such as migraines.  As always, make sure after consuming this strain that you have completely regained your concentration before doing anything complicated, like driving. 

Purple Punch can be grown indoors and outdoors.  Indoors, it can stay as short as 90cm.  The average flowering time is 7 to 8 weeks and the yield can be up to 700g/M2.  Outdoors, it can grow up to 1.5M.  The harvest period is mid-/end-September and the yield can be up to 2Kg per plant.  Plants are short and bushy with lots of branches. 

When it comes to growing Purple Punch, there are two key points to remember.  Firstly, Indicas like to spread outwards.  This means you have to allow plenty of space for lateral growth.  Remember that a lot of this will happen in a short time, i.e. the latter part of the flowering period.  This means that you want your spacing to be sorted before the plants get too big and heavy to be easy to move.  Secondly, the branches are almost guaranteed to need staking.  The sheer weight of bud will just get too much for them to handle without help. 

Other than that, however, Purple Punch is a fairly straightforward grow.  It has good resistance to mould, diseases and pests.  It’s also fairly forgiving of beginner errors.  Basically, the only real challenge is managing light cycles indoors. 

In terms of taste and aroma, Purple Punch closely resembles a great fruit pie.  The main fruit is clearly apple.  This is mixed with blueberries and cherries and topped with caramel and cloves.

Gorilla CBD is a 75% Indica-dominant cross between Gorilla and Dinamed Kush CBD.  The name may sound like Gorilla Glue, but it’s actually almost literally the opposite. 

As its name suggests, Gorilla CBD was created for its CBD content.  There is only 7% THC, compared to 14% CBD.  In other words, the THC:CBD ratio is 2:1, which is widely regarded as one of the best medical ratios there is. 

If at all possible, Gorilla CBD should be kept for use at night.  You will be couchlocked for an extended period.  There is simply no two ways about this.  You may also have the marijuana munchies.  It’s therefore a good idea to have some drinks and snacks handy.  If you want, or need, to medicate in the daytime, then you absolutely must allow sufficient recovery time before doing anything complicated, such as driving. 

Bud picture of Dinafem Gorilla CBD

It’s worth noting that the THC content in Gorilla CBD is more than just an incidental result of the crossing.  It serves to provide fast and effective pain relief while the CBD gets to work.  It can also be useful for clearing mental and/or emotional negativity. 

Gorilla CBD can be grow indoors and outdoors.  Indoors, the expected height would be in the region of 1.8M.  The flowering time is about 8 to 9 weeks and the yield can be up to 500 g/m2.  Outdoors, the expected height would be in the region of 2.5M.  The outdoor harvest time is around the middle of October and the yield can be up to 1Kg per plant. 

The fact that Gorilla CBD is a fairly tall, photoperiod strain means that it’s probably not the best choice for a complete beginner.  Even if you can grow outside, you’ll still have to deal with a big plant with a big appetite.  It’s also important to note that Gorilla CBD really needs a warm, dry, sunny climate to grow happily out of doors.  If you live north of the Mediterranean basin, then you’ll need to pick your growing location with great care.  Alternatively, you could put your plants under glass (or just grow indoors). 

On the plus side, Gorilla CBD has good resistance to mould, diseases and pests.  As always, however, this does depend on their being good ventilation in the growing space.  This means that you need to allow space for the plants to spread outwards as well as upwards. 

In terms of taste and aroma, Gorilla CBD is a mixture of fuel and Kush.  It’s unusual and very intense.

Cosmic Bomb Auto is an Indica-dominant cross of LSD and Auto Bomb.  It’s compact, tasty and very beginner-friendly. 

Even though Cosmic Bomb Auto is an autoflowering strain, it packs in an average of 16% to 20% THC.  That’s some pretty strong pain relief.  It’s also enough to deal with a wide range of emotional and mental conditions.  Added to this, there’s around 2% to 3% CBD.  This means that couchlock is all but guaranteed.  You’ll therefore want to be ready with some drinks and snacks. 

Overall, Cosmic Bomb Auto is really best suited to use in the evening.  The THC will quickly clear any pain.  It will also clear your head of any negativity.  Then the CBD will get to work to provide long-lasting pain relief and total relaxation for mind and body.  If you do have to use this strain in the daytime, make sure that your concentration has fully returned before you do anything complicated, like driving. 

Cosmic Bomb Auto can be grown indoors and outdoors.  In either case it takes about 9 weeks to go from seed to bud.  There is no outdoor harvest period as such.  You will, however, have to think about your local weather.  Basically, you’ll need to be able to keep your plants warm and dry for 9 weeks.  Alternatively, put them under glass or grow indoors.

This strain has a growing range of about 0.9M (indoor minimum) to 1.4M (outdoor maximum).  Indoors, Cosmic Bomb Auto could deliver up to 600g/m² and outdoors you could harvest up to 200g per plant. 

As with most autoflowering strains, Cosmic Bomb Auto seems to have been created with beginners in mind.  There’s no lightcycles to manage, you’re unlikely to need to do plant training and the strain has good resistance to mould, diseases and pests.  It’s also fairly tolerant of a bit of rough handling.  In fact, all you really have to do is remember your marijuana basics.  Above all, you absolutely must remember the importance of good ventilation.  Good odour control is also highly recommended.  Cosmic Bomb Auto may be small, but it can kick up a mighty smell towards the end of the flowering period. 

Even though its name references space, the taste of Cosmic Bomb Auto is actually very earthy.  This earthiness is, however, balanced with the crisp sweetness of fruit.  There’s also a touch of Skunk in the flavour but not really the aroma.

Banana Bomb is an 80% Indica cross between THC Bomb and Banana Kush.  It tastes great and is very easy to grow (for a photoperiod strain).   

Even though it’s mostly Indica, Banana Bomb has average THC of 20% to 22%.  This is enough to deliver some serious pain relief.  It’s also enough to deal with many emotional and/or mental conditions.  The high is a bit more mellow than you’d expect from a Sativa with the same THC content.  It’s happy and motivational rather than a full-on mental sugar-rush.  Average CBD content is around 0.5% to 1%.  This may leave you mildly couchlocked.  It probably won’t last long, but you’ll still want some drinks and snacks handy. 

The THC:CBD ratio makes Banana Bomb a nicely flexible strain which can be used day or night.  Obviously, you’ll need to make sure that you’re fully refocused before doing anything complicated, especially driving. 

Banana Bomb is suited to both indoor- and outdoor-growing and will also be perfectly happy in a greenhouse.  Indoors, plants generally reach around 1.4M.  The flowering time is 7 to 9 weeks and the yield is up to 600g/m2.   

Outdoors, plants can get a lot taller.  For, a lot taller, read double the size.  In other words, outdoor plants can easily reach 3M.  In fact, if growing conditions are really good, they can even get a bit taller.  The outdoor harvest is around about the end of September or start of October.  One major advantage of bigger plants is that they have physical space for bigger yields.  What this means in practical terms is that outdoor growers could collect as much as 500g per plant. 

Banana Bomb has good resilience to mould, diseases and pests.  It’s also fairly tolerant of a bit of poor handling.  It is not, however, at all tolerant of poor air flow or poor weather.   

To ensure good air flow, make sure you leave enough space for your plants to grow outwards as well as upwards.  This strain is basically Indica and it will spread, a lot. 

You can’t ensure good weather, but you can choose a sheltered growing space.  In fact, if you are growing towards the northern end of Europe you may want to grow under glass.  Basically do whatever it takes to protect your plants from wind and rain.

In terms of taste and aroma, Banana Bomb is essentially a gloriously rich and creamy spiced banana custard.  The spices are warm, Kush spices, hash rather than Haze.
