Short flowering seeds occur by crossing various cannabis strains with fast genetics. The breeding helps reduce the time it takes the plant to flower or bud.
FAST EDDY AUTOMATIC
Generally, it takes a marijuana crop an entire season to completely flower, about 3–5 months. However, with short flowering THC seeds, full-flowering can be accomplished in as little as eight weeks. These strains are genetically coded, so they bloom in expedited time. Your cannabis plants can be ready for harvesting after just 6–7 weeks of flowering.

Growing fast flowering seeds
Sometimes, you may not be sure about which cannabis strains to purchase for your next grow. Your personal taste and circumstances will greatly determine your decision, so while some of you may be looking for high yields or certain effect, others may prefer strains resistant to moulds or with the shortest possible flowering period.
All of this helps to maximize the yield of your cannabis crop. These types of THC seeds require very little maintenance when grown outdoors or indoors.
What happens when a skillful breeder like Biovortex develops a hybrid with two of the most sought-after clones of the West Coast of the USA? An astounding strain like Black D.O.G. from Humboldt Seeds, a cross between the popular Blackberry Kush and the also renowned Emeral Headband, a true classic from the Californian Emerald Triangle. Her average yield is compensated by the high quality of her flowers, which provide awesome grape and wild fruits notes on a diesel background. And it is ready in just 7–8 weeks! Available in packs of 3 and 5 feminised seeds.

Simply put: fixing a problem quickly equates to shorter time to harvest.
You can get faster vegetative growth with almost all hydroponic methods compared to what can be achieved with soil. That means that you could speed up time til harvest by using Deep Water Culture (DWC), Coco coir/perlite, or pretty much any non-soil growing medium. During the flowering stage, this isn’t as important, but this can shave weeks off your vegetative stage time (get straight to growing buds sooner!)
You can get a marijuana plant to start flowering by ensuring that it gets 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness each night, often referred to as the 12-12 light schedule.
That means that once you’ve started flowering a specific strain, there isn’t a whole lot good options to speed things up during the flowering stage.
So today I’d like to share a short guide on how you can reduce the time to harvest, and how you can reduce the amount of time you actually spend tending your plants, and still get outstanding results.
Auto-flowering strains of marijuana contain higher levels of CBD, a cannabinoid which has been associated with many medical benefits. So they may be the perfect choice for a medical marijuana user who needs to harvest quickly.
Faster is not always better, but there are ways that you can speed up the time from seedling to harvest without sacrificing quality, potency or yields.
As long as you give your plants more than 14 hours of light a day, they will stay in the vegetative stage. But if you give the plant more light than that, they have more time in the day to grow!
The one downside is that a shorter flowering stage with less hours of light each day mean that buds get less time to fatten and you will end up with smaller yields. Therefore it’s not recommended to try to get a plant to finish flowering in less than 8 weeks, as you’ll end up with very small yields. This technique is best used if you have a plant that’s been flowering for 2-3 months and doesn’t look like it plans on stopping any time soon.
