Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds
Our cannabis seed bank has a vast amount of autoflower seeds for sale and from all over the world. Find auto flower seeds from the USA, and popular strains from there! Autoflower cannabis seeds are a hybrid of ruderalis strains. By crossing photoperiod cannabis plants with ruderalis hybrids, breeders could create cannabis strains that mature within 8 to 9 weeks automatically. Today, breeders can create auto-flowering marijuana plants with good yields, high THC concentration, and a short flowering period with the advancement of selective breeding.
Auto Flower Cannabis Seeds Vs. Photoperiod Weed Seeds
The growth cycle of a cannabis plant is essential for agriculture, cloning, and harvest. The vegetative phase starts when seedlings begin to grow, absorb light, and reach their height. At the end of the vegetative stage, the cannabis plant enters the flowering stage, and as the name suggests, this is when the juicy buds and terpenes are created. There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding the difference between photoperiod weed seeds and auto-flowering seeds. The process can be simplified for educational purposes.
Marijuana is naturally a photoperiod plant which means it relies on a light cycle to bloom. Therefore, photoperiod weed seeds can germinate and enter the vegetative phase either indoors or outdoors. Photoperiod weed seeds entering the vegetative phase indoors require a 12-12 light cycle. This entails that to begin flowering, a cannabis plant needs 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness over 24 hours. Now the light schedule differs for photoperiod cannabis plants grown in an outdoor setting. As a general rule of thumb, marijuana plants entering the vegetative phase outdoors begin to flower when the daylight hours drop below 15.
So, What are Auto Flower Cannabis Seeds?
Auto-flower weed seeds do not depend on the light cycle to begin flowering. Instead, once the cannabis plant reaches a certain age, it starts to flower automatically. This ability to flower independent of the light cycle (and season) gives auto-flowering cannabis seeds its unique feature.
Breaking Down the Pros and Cons of Autoflower Cannabis Seeds
Autoflower cannabis seeds have been reported to produce fat and juicy buds: The plant establishes its size roughly around 1 to 2 months of maturity. Autos don’t grow tall, but their buds begin to fatten during their lifespan.
Reports show that the autoflower weed seeds are good for beginners! Auto flower cannabis seeds don’t rely on a light cycle to bloom. Instead, they will begin to enter the vegetative phase on their own once they reach a certain age. As they require little intervention and maintenance, Autos have been a great choice for beginners.
The THC content is comparable to photoperiod marijuana strains. Photoperiod cannabis seeds take a lot longer to grow, flower and develop their rich terpene profile. For this reason, buds from photoperiod marijuana seeds have always been considered superior to that of autos. However, the evolution of cannabis genetics has come a long way. Today, records show breeders can produce auto flower seeds containing moderate to high THC levels, creating plants with a spectacular and intense high.
Some Cons You Should Know About Autoflower Marijuana Seeds
Autoflower marijuana seeds cannot be cloned: Cloning is a form of asexual reproduction which involves cutting a branch from a mature female cannabis plant (referred to as a mother plant) and regrowing a new plant. Marijuana grown from its mother plant will be genetically identical, and this is what is referred to as cloning. A clone of an auto-flower marijuana plant would be the same age as its mother plant; thus, it would not develop. For this reason, auto-flower weed seeds make poor mothers and cannot be cloned.
Flavour profile and potency: When it comes to potency, auto-flower cannabis plants may not always be the best choice partly because their short life-cycle limits their THC concentration. Photoperiod marijuana plants have more time to develop a unique flavour profile and THC concentration. As a result, it is generally reported that photoperiod marijuana plants are a lot more potent than autos. With the advancement of genetic breeding, many cannabis seed breeders cultivate auto seeds with a moderate THC concentration.
The yield may be lower: Auto-flower weed seeds begin to flower once they reach a certain age, so this often limits their growth and development. In contrast, the growth of a photoperiod plant is controlled by the light cycle which means they can remain in the vegetative stage for a more extended period and grow to greater heights and develop more potent buds.

THE BEST AUTOFLOWERING WEED SEEDS IN THE USA
If you are looking for a fast-growing, user-friendly type of cannabis plant then look no further than our range of autoflowering cannabis seeds. Guaranteed to produce a respectable yield in a short space of time (typically a vegetative period of just 2-4 weeks), autoflowering seeds can be sewn year round for multiple harvests and an overall bumper yield.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are created by weaving light-independent traits into the biological make-up of a photoperiod cannabis plant.
Here at United Strains of America we offer autoflowering varieties of some of the most popular strains from around the world. Working with carefully-selected, professional breeders who cross strains with the hardy, highly-stable native cannabis ruderalis, offspring retain the best characteristics of individual strains but enjoy the significantly shorter growing time of their native parent.
WHY YOU SHOULD BUY AUTOFLOWERING WEED SEEDS
Opting to grow autoflowering seeds comes with some distinct advantages over growing regular, feminized or fast-version weed seeds. Here are a few advantages of buying autoflowering seeds from United Strains of America:
High yield, short grow time: on a plant-for-plant basis, ‘autos’ (weed from autoflowering seeds) cannot match the production of ‘photos’ (weed grown to a traditional light-dark cycle). However, the fast-growing characteristics of autos mean you can grow several batches through the year, exponentially increasing your annual yield!
Beginner-friendly: a short grow time equals a less labor-intensive cultivation. Autoflowering seeds are a great choice for beginner growers because they make for a less complex grow with fewer chances of stress or injury to plants.
Simple lighting schedules: unlike other types of cannabis seeds, autos do not require a complex lighting schedule. Autos will follow a single schedule to maturity (usually 18/6) when you simply switch to a suitable lamp for the flowering stage.
Small is beautiful: one of the defining characteristics of autos are their compact stature. With most plants not even reaching 2 feet (23 inches), they are ideal for growing far from prying eyes in small spaces, such as grow cabinets.
Higher CBD levels: developed from the wild-growing cannabis ruderalis, autos contain slightly higher CBD levels than other types of cannabis. For growers and smokers who prefer a more lucid high or want weed for medicinal purposes, autos make a good choice.
Bumper buds: maturing rapidly, with a compact structure and short lifespan, an auto plant can only produce a small crop. However, harvesting several times a year transforms a small yield (100-250 grams of buds per plant) into a bumper crop of up to four times that amount. This far exceeds the estimated yield of a photoperiod plant.
TOP TIPS FOR GROWING AUTOFLOWERING SEEDS
Here at United Strains of America we know there are some best practices to get the most out of your autoflowering cannabis seeds.
Best-known for user-friendly growing and harvesting, autos pretty much look after themselves. However, there are some top tips for getting the most out of your seeds.
For great results, follow these top tips:
1. To get the most from your plants and discourage mold and disease, create a growing environment where the temperature ranges between 68-86°F and the humidity is no more than 40-50%.
2. Avoid high-stress training methods and injury to plants. Autos struggle to recover from stress and injury, more so than other types of weed plants, resulting in a poor yield. However, low-stress training (LST) techniques can be used carefully and sparingly to improve auto yields.
3. The small stature and hardy nature of autos means they require less nutrition than other types of weed plants – take not to overfeed!
4. Take a considered approach to harvesting by removing the top colas first. This allows the lower, less developed buds to enjoy some more light and to mature fully before you harvest them.

What are autoflowering marijuana seeds?
Autoflowering seeds are your ticket to harvests in half the time. These marijuana strains are small, sturdy, fast-flowering, and non-photoperiod . They automatically bloom after several weeks of vegging, finishing their entire life cycle in around ten weeks.
Autos are a favorite among impatient stoners and growers in cold areas. They let you taste test new cultivars after a short waiting period. You can grow two batches per season and cultivate stretchy strains even with limited vertical space. What’s not to love?
Drop the waiting game and fill your mason jars with cannabinoid-rich buds fast. As a bonus, our auto cultivars are already feminized . There’s no need to worry about complicated light setups or males in your garden. Order seeds from i49 and set yourself up for gardening success.
How fast do autoflowering seeds grow?
Fast development is the number one selling point of autoflowering cannabis seeds . Expect your crops to run the entire seed-to-harvest course in short ten weeks . Some sativa strains need more, while indica plants tend to be ripe and ready in as early as seven or eight weeks.
If you’re an outdoor cultivator, autoflowering seeds let you plant two batches of cannabis per season. Alternatively, start late and still collect colas in August or September. There’s no reason to worry about frost and bad weather ruining your harvest.
Indoor growers can maintain summer temperatures all year long. Over a year, these beauties leave you with more buds than you’d get from a photoperiod garden. Mix things up with strains with varying environmental requirements or keep an always-fresh stash of your go-to.
Why do cannabis growers like autoflower seeds?
Autoflowering seeds are ideal for dedicated cultivators of all levels. More people are catching on to the trend and growing non-photoperiod. Why is that so?
The main appeal stands in the name— these beauties flower automatically . You’re never left wondering when to flip the lights or whether your outdoor crops need lamp supplementation.
The non-photoperiod heritage of autos offers further benefits. Ruderalis genetics produces short and squat marijuana plants . There’s no concern about space restrictions for towering sativa or especially aggressive indica strains.
This ruderalis genome originated in central Russia, developing resistance to adverse weather and common diseases . Standard gardening practices get autoflowering marijuana to produce vigorously in response to your TLC.
Like all cannabis varieties, autoflower seeds come with pros and cons. Let’s explore both sides to help you determine whether this is the best option for you.
What are the benefits of autoflowering seeds?
Autos are the top choice of growers with some experience . These cannabis gardeners collect harvests sooner and try new strains before dedicating six months to them. Cool-climate outdoor cultivars and those who always have a fresh stash also go auto.
If you’re reluctant about jumping on the bandwagon, consider the following benefits of auto flowering strains .
Lightning-fast flowering and harvest
Autos don’t count on long-lasting sunshine and warm temperatures, courtesy of their Russian genetics. Evolution made the growing cycle much shorter , helping crops make the most of their short growing season.
Hybrids combined with ruderalis maintain this growth pattern. Their preferences are strain-dependent, but they develop rapidly indoors and outdoors.
Most autos are harvest-ready in ten weeks. Some cultivars take even less to produce cannabinoid-rich buds.
Free from the light cycle
Photoperiod cannabis goes through life cycles depending on the amount of light outside. Shortening days are its sign to enter flowering, and it’s only then when the bud production commences. Indoors, it’s on you to mimic these conditions and induce ripening.
There’s no worry about light signals with autos.
These crops grow under any light schedule , moving from vegging to flowering. It’s good to keep light exposure high to encourage the bud site, bud, and cannabinoid development. Still, messing up the program doesn’t mean plant stress and hermaphroditism.
Perfect for discreet growing
Autoflowering seed -grown crops stretch much less than their photoperiod counterparts. There’s more to this advantage than taking up less space in your grow room.
The stealthy stature makes your growing operation much more discreet . We at i49 would never suggest illegal growing, but growers have various reasons for wanting to keep their grow a secret.
Small auto crops blend with other plants in your backyard and don’t stretch to the skies. You avoid nasty looks from landlords and neighbors.
Higher percentage of CBD
Cannabis produces all cannabinoids, but the market is overflowing with high-THC strains. As a result, high-CBD varieties remain limited unless you shop for strains popular for their CBD production.
This tendency is great for high-tolerance recreational stoners. Medical marijuana users and people looking to tame their high with a non-psychoactive substance find themselves in a bind.
That’s where autoflower seeds come into play. Crops with these genomes are weaker in THC, but they still amp up cannabinoid production. An average non-photoperiod flower is higher in CBD , making the high less aggressive and more therapeutic.
The ruderalis genome originated in barren Russian lands, and crops still developed! They could only do so with excellent resistance to the cold, diseases, and pests . This quality translates to ruderalis crosses too.
It’s much harder to make a mistake with autoflowering seeds . Of course, specific climate and environmental requirements depend on its family tree.
You should always provide optimal conditions, but these marijuana plants remain patient towards rookie errors.
Do autoflowering seeds have any cons?
Plants modified by ruderalis bring numerous benefits, but not all cultivators choose autos. In particular, absolute beginners tend to face issues with these strains . Their short lifecycle doesn’t leave plenty of room to fix any errors you may have made along the way.
Commercial growers and other high harvest-seekers also go photoperiod more often. Let’s discuss why you might skip this variety and choose an alternative.
Autos are smaller in size and able to carry fewer flowers , reducing the size of your overall yield. Of course, the exact figure is different for each strain. You can find quick high-yielders, but in general, you’ll need fewer mason jars for your harvest.
Low yields aren’t unavoidable, though. The right conditions, strains, and growing techniques optimize the harvest potential.
Vulnerability to grower errors
Plant stress stunts development and reduces output. That risk is always possible, but there’s more time to fix the burn or deficiency with long-flowering photoperiods.
It’s a different story if you mess things up with autos. Their short life cycle makes them extra vulnerable to stress . Be careful with lights, nutrients, trimming, and transplanting to avoid damaging your harvests.
Crops increase in potency with time spent in the sun. As a result, those from autoflowering seeds stand slightly lower on the cannabinoid scale.
You can get the best of both worlds by increasing light exposure during their life cycle. This approach requires higher energy expenditure, though.
Powerful lamps that run all day long help the buds fatten and produce cannabinoids. Luckily, the seed-to-harvest period is short enough that you’ll only have to pay higher utility bills for a month or two.
What yield can I expect from autoflowers?
Compared to photoperiods, autos offer small harvests. Autoflowering variants of high-yielding strains produce average harvests.
There’s massive variance between different strains , though. Some autoflower seed -grown crops might yield 3 ounces, while others produce over 24 ounces per plant. If you’re striving for harvest bulk, start with quality genetics.
Get high-yield autoflower seeds in the USA and start there. Combine good genetics with good gardening practices. You can increase the quantity and quality of your harvest and achieve it in under three months.
What gardening practices suit autos best, then? How to take your yields to double digits? Let’s explore two key factors here.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds and the best light for their growing
Cannabis is a light-hungry plant, and that requirement doubles with autos. Your crops don’t rely on the light schedule to start flowering, but they enjoy basking in the sun just the same . Since you won’t have to change your light schedule, which one works best for these crops?
Cultivators keep the lamps on their autos running for 18 or 25 hours a day. The former gives your autoflowering marijuana some downtime, while the latter prompts continual growth. There’s no consensus on which works better, so choose according to what other growers have found success with as a start.
Once you have your schedule down, it’s time to consider equipment. Power savings are a bonus here, but any grow lamp type will do. If you use LEDs, switch the spectrum from blue in vegging to red in flowering.
Our final tip has to do with exposure rather than light itself. Trimming, topping, side lamps, and the Sea of Green technique maximize the amount of light for each bud site. These methods help all flowers fatten, even those on lower levels.
What kind of soil should I buy for autoflower seeds?
You can grow your autoflower seeds in the soil and hydroponic setups. The latter promotes harvest size, but it requires some experience and additional equipment on your end. It’s better to stick to traditional methods and focus on providing optimal conditions if you’re a beginner. How do you do that?
Start by ensuring there are plenty of nutrients in whichever medium you choose. Deficiencies in the short life cycle are bad news, reducing the quantity and quality of the output. Organic soil is an ideal low-maintenance option that guarantees root health and tasty, sticky buds.
Choose an airy medium. Compact soil can constrict the roots , stunting the growth of autoflowering cannabis . You can easily increase aeration by adding coco coir, perlite, or biochar to your medium.
The cultivation environment determines how much your crop eats and stretches. Cannabis can grow in most soil types, but why not go the extra mile? Providing quality goes a long way in improving your harvests.
