The West Coast loves marijuana, and these strains love the West Coast. Available as both Indicas and Sativas, Mediterranean strains grow well where it’s dry and warm. Add in plenty of sunshine, and you’ll see high yields. Feminized seeds help prevent accidental pollination.
A Mediterranean climate has dry summers, but some rain in the spring and fall. Hot Mediterranean climates, such as Southern California, have hot summers and dry conditions. In contrast, Northern California has warm summers, while the Pacific Northwest has cool summers. If you are growing outdoors in Seattle, for example, choose cool strains.
In areas with shorter growing seasons, such as the Pacific North West, autoflowering seeds may be a wiser choice. When growing outdoors, you must harvest before the temperature drops, and it starts to rain. Autoflowering varieties typically flower faster than our feminized strains, making them ideal for beating the Northwest Fall.
They also perform well in cooler climates.
High CBD Strains
CBD has soothing therapeutic benefits that are well-loved by many. When combined with THC, it creates a unique entourage effect. The high CBD strains listed above are perfect for outdoor growing on the West Coast.
