What Is Autoflowering Cannabis?

The Cannabis Ruderalis species is native to Canada, Russia, Central Europe, and Central Asia, and due to years and years of evolution, it developed the autoflowering trait.

Autoflowers are the result of breeding Indicas and Sativas with Ruderalis, resulting in automatic plants that completely mature in less than 10 weeks independent of the light cycle, taking 30% less time to grow than traditional cannabis plants without affecting the yield.

Thanks to the Ruderalis lineage, autoflowering seeds are more resilient to harsh climates and pests, and can be grown outdoors all year long, although remember that it’s essential to buy good genetics for your plants to have those characteristics stabilized, that’s why we recommend choosing seeds banks with proven quality products like Fast Buds.
