Grow DifficultyEasy
EffectsCreative, Euphoric, Relaxed

White Widow is the strain to go for if you’re looking for a nice, relaxing high through the day.

Even beginners can grow and smoke this hybrid strain with ease.

The spicy, earth and the mild peppery taste is unlike what you’d expect of this crystallized beauty.

If you’re on the fence about White Widow, then it might help to know that this strain is an award winner!

The strain won the Cannabis Cup in 1995!

This is not surprising, considering its smooth yet intense high.

The ease of growing this hybrid strain is another factor that makes it an award winner!

The strain grows well indoors and outdoors, flowering during periods of less light.

The plants themselves grow from 2 to 4 feet indoors and have bountiful harvests of up to 18 ounces a plant!

That’s winner behavior!

2. Blueberry Autoflower

Aroma/FlavorsBerry, Earthy, Pine, Sweet
Grow DifficultyEasy
EffectsEuphoric, Happy, Sleepy

Blueberry Autoflower is one of the best strains for a beginner.

Not only does it taste brilliant, have a relaxing, euphoric high, and is easy to grow, but it has won an award for all of the above! Blueberry Autoflower won the ‘Best Indica’ award in the High Times Cannabis Cup back in 2000.

This award-winning strain is Indica dominant and has a respectable amount of THC.

The yield from this, notably compact plant, is significant for its size.

Adding to its benefits, the plant responds more to a change in the light rather than the seasons, so it’s perfect for an indoor grow.

The list of pros is ever-growing with this Indica dominant strain, but the taste and effect have to take the cake.

If you’re the kind to appreciate a fruity, berry taste and smell, then Blueberry obviously has to be your go-to.

Believe the awards!

Like its parents, Northern Lights is a brilliant combination of a relaxing body high that still manages to ignite euphoria and stress relief without leaving you couch-bound.
