Last year AZ residents were not wondering what the best strain for beginners to grow was. But Starting November 2020 Proposition 207 (The Smart and Safe Act) legalizing recreational Cannabis (Marijuana) in Arizona passed with a resounding 60% yes vote.
This was a signal from Arizona adults that they want access to cannabis with or without a medical condition. The act not only legalized conservative amounts of marijuana (1oz of flower or 5 grams of concentrate) it legalized Arizona adults to grow 6 plants each with a maximum of 12 per household.
That means if you own your home, (or have a pot friendly landlord) and have a room in the house you can lock up. Or have an outdoor locked area that is not visible to the public. You can grow marijuana in it!
This is an exciting new venture for you and there are a lot of things you need to learn. Luckily you have us and our vast network of Arizona growers, manufacturers, extractors, dispensaries and caregivers to get the best tips and tricks on everything you need to know to grow great Marijuana!
Today we’re going to focus on seeds!
How we picked these strains
Errl Cup reached out to our network, walked through a ton of gardens. Smoked a cart load of joints and finally came up with a list of the best strains for a beginner to grow. Don’t worry these picks aren’t only easy to grow. They carry some heavy weight and some euphoric highs well worth your time.
The seeds we are going to recommend are all auto flowering Indica dominate strains. We picked Indica because they are more forgiving than sativa strains and generally have a much shorter flowering time. We picked auto flowering because they finish quicker, 65-75 days in the case of our recommendations.
The seeds we are going to recommend are all feminized. We recommend feminized seeds for beginners because they increase the total yield of your 6 or 12 plant garden by guaranteeing you grow only female bud producing plants.
Male plants produce only pollen that make seeds when combined with female plants. You want to avoid making your own seeds if you plan to smoke the buds. Seed production takes away from resin production. Reducing the strength of the buds.
