"If your goal is to grow your own head stash at home, then look no further than this top 10 list produced by the Nirvana team. The below list are some of our biggest producing ladies that are known for heavyweight production. Not only do these cultivars like large amounts of nutrients, adapt amazingly well to plant training, they are also light hungry and will pack on the pounds, requiring support especially during the final 4 weeks of flower production!"
Nirvana’s best strains for indoor cultivation
There are many reasons why a person may grow Cannabis plants indoors or outdoors, and most often it is for personal use. The thought of growing your home-grown clean medicine makes complete sense, so if the goal is to keep your curing jars full, then big yielding genetics is the next step to success.
As a first-time grower, you can be left scratching your head wondering why some plants produce tiny little buds, that seemed a waste of time, space, electricity, nutrients and labor. On the other hand, your friend down the road, who uses the same lights and nutrients, is maxing out 2 grams per watt and knocking it out of the park every grow!
Starting with big yielding genetics will certainly give you leverage when it comes to harvest time. We have a massive portfolio of genetics we have obtained over a 30-year period. So are happy to say the top 10 list we provided here will not only keep commercial growers smiling, they are easy to grow, well suited for a beginner grower.
