Flowering time: 50 – 65 days (45 – 50 days for the Automatic)
For so many growers, the highest yielding strains are the holy grail of cannabis cultivation. The question “what are your biggest yielding varieties?” is such a perennial one that we’re devoting an entire article to answering it, rather than just an FAQ – and because this is Sensi Seeds, there’s more than one answer!
As the name suggests, this strain is all about the buds. They will need more love than those of the varieties that are usually recommended for beginners, simply because of their gigantic size! Growers should be prepared to lend them extra support in the form of stakes and strings to save their branches from breaking and splitting, especially in the last couple of weeks before harvest.
This high-yielding variety is the perennial favourite for gigantic colas of the kind which, back in the 1980s, were known as ‘donkey dicks’. Big Bud began its career as an Afghan x Skunk clone line which, thanks to the Sensi Seeds breeders, has been refined, back-crossed, reinforced and fine-tuned to result in one of the highest yielding strains on the planet.
Of these four massive bud producers, two come in three expressions – regular, feminized, and automatic; one is available in regular and feminized; and the last is available only in regular. So despite this article focusing on four different strains of high-yielding cannabis, there are actually nine types of seeds to choose from!
It’s the Skunk traces that pull Big Bud back from being a 100% indica to 85%; they also brighten the flavour without sacrificing bulk. The aroma and taste have topnotes of sweet fruit and an undertone of spice.
Also during this time period, it’s important to keep a close watch for bud rot, mould and mildew. But for growers with some experience and the commitment to care for their plants, Big Bud will reward them with truly gigantic harvests.
In other words, one grower might be looking for the highest yielding strain with the most energetic effects, whereas another dreams of the highest yielding and most relaxing variety. For still another, cannabis seeds for the highest yielding strain also need to be within a certain budget.

There’s a reason why this award-winning hybrid remains popular since its birth in the 90s.

This strain will thrive either indoors or outdoors, with a favorable flowering time of just eight weeks. For this reason, Purple Trainwreck is a hit for light-deprivation greenhouses or growers looking to harvest early in the fall.
Below are five strains with genetics that predispose them to heavy yields. Consider sowing these strains if you’re looking to achieve a bigger harvest this year.
Another outdoor California classic, Purple Trainwreck is famous for its high yields and ease of growing. This strain was created by the Humboldt Seed Organization by crossing the longtime favorite Trainwreck with Mendocino Purps. The resulting hybrid holds onto both Trainwreck’s wonderful aroma and effects and Mendo Purp’s weight and resilience. Purple Trainwreck offers a euphoric and uplifting high, making it a perfect strain for entry-level consumers looking for a mellow experience.
While this is a short list of popular, high-yielding strains, there are so many others out there begging to be discovered, grown, and celebrated. As farming tactics and technology improve, yields will continue to increase. But don’t forget that behind any high-yielding crop is a capable farmer who pays attention to his or her plant’s needs.
Any moisture influx will cause Critical Kush’s buds to mold from the inside out, which is why this strain needs to be grown in a space where humidity can be precisely regulated. For this reason, growing indoors or in a greenhouse is recommended. Heavy feeding is necessary to ensure the buds grow dense, healthy, and heavy.

Cheese Quake combines the power of a quality strain with high yields. Created by TGA Subcool Seeds, this indica-dominant hybrid combines genetics from Cheese and Querkle.

Blue Dream is regarded as the most popular strain in the United States. This hybrid is heavy-yielding, mildew-resistant, flavorful, easy to find, and calming in effects. Due to its overwhelming presence and pacifying, mellow euphoria, Blue Dream is popular among novice consumers. However, many connoisseurs and heavy consumers have moved past the Blue Dream hype.
