The science behind developing cannabis seeds and strains that are feminized and auto-flowering has been a major step forward for this industry for several years. These auto-flowering cannabis strains have redeemed itself from the usual notion of it as an addictive and harmful substance by proving its characteristics of becoming a medicinal herb. It has been known to contain THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, a compound derived from cannabis plants that can increases appetite causing one to consume more food. Other than THC, it also has CBS or cannabidiol that comprises about 40% of the entire cannabis plants’ extract. This CBD is applied in many clinical procedures because of its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Because the research for cannabis is still ongoing, more discoveries are yet to come.
What does it mean to be a “potent auto-flowering strain”?
In the present times, these auto-flowering cannabis varieties are developed to have properties that are specific for use. There are those with enhanced CBD and/or THC content and those strains that are developed to achieve stronger and flavorful taste, which comes in long-lasting stoned effects. A potent auto-flowering cannabis strain would mean that it has great influence to the user’s system, whether it is neurological or of medicinal purpose. There are several types of auto-flowering weed strains that can be considered as potent depending on their mode of use and specified properties.
What auto-flowering cannabis strains are the so-called “potent ones”?
Potency of auto-flowering weed strains is also a genetic factor. Those that have potent parent strains can of course give rise to potent daughter strains. Some auto-flowering cannabis strains that have this potent genetic factor are the Sweet Skunk Auto, MI5, Afghan Kush Ryder, Turbo Jack, Diesel Ryder, Critical Jack Auto, and Auto Skunk Mass. The potency of these strains pertain to their high yielding capacity, strong flavors, and a satisfying feeling that can be traced back to their indica, sativa, or ruderalis roots.
For those users that consider potency in medicinal use, there are auto-flowering strains that are specialized to have high THC and CBD contents. Auto-flowering strains that have high THC content are known to bring euphoric cerebral effects to its users. This includes the Neville Haze, Amnesia Haze, White Russian Auto, and Jack Herer Auto. On the other hand, a high CBD content would negate the psychoactive effects of THC. Some examples include Cannatonic, Sour Tsunami, Mango Haze, Charlotte’s Web, and Harlequin.
