Best 10 High Yielding Cannabis Strains (Both Outdoor and Indoor) in 2020

The cannabis industry is undoubtedly becoming a large industry, with sales substantially increasing during the past few years. With many countries worldwide starting to legalize cannabis, more and more people are starting to discover its benefits, particularly when it comes to one’s health. To meet the increasing demand, more and more cannabis growers are turning to high-yield strains that can help them meet the demand by consumers. 

Regardless of whether you’re a small-time cultivator or a larger supplier, you will need to maximize your investment in cultivation by selecting high-yield strains like the ones enumerated below.

 

High-Yield Indoor Strains

#1.Big Bud

One of the most well-known strains in the world, the Big Bud is a high-yielding strain that grows large buds, giving you high-quality and quantity yields in a shorter amount of time. Moreover, this multi-award-winning strain is fairly easy to grow, making it a good option even for beginner growers. It stays at a medium height of 1m while providing an impressive weight of 600g/m2. However, this is its height when grown indoors. Outdoors, it can reach as high as 2m tall with some weighing as much as 1kg.

This strain is the result of crossing the strains Skunk #1, Afghani, and Northern Lights. It’s composed predominantly of the indica strain, providing users with a relaxing feeling that’s common to the indica strain of cannabis.

 

Features:

  • Flowering time: 8 to 9 weeks
  • Indoor height of 1m with a weight of 600g/m2
  • Outdoor height of 2m or higher with a weight of 1kg per plant
  • Predominantly of the indica strain

 

#2.Industrial Plant

The Industrial Plant is named as such because of its ability to produce industrial-strength buds at higher yields. This particular strain is the result of breeding a Thai Sativa strain with a high-yield Afghani indica.

As such, it has a 50/50 ratio of indica to Sativa, providing its users with a relaxing yet energizing buzz when smoked. 

It thrives in most types of climates so it can be grown both indoors and outdoors. An indoor-grown Industrial Plant strain can reach a height of up to 1m and can grow as high as 2m or more when cultivated outdoors.

It can provide a weight of 625g/m2 when grown indoors and produce yields of up to 1300g per plant when grown outdoors.

It has a shorter flowering time of about 6 to 7 weeks and is fairly easy to grow, making it a suitable option for novice cultivators.

Features:

  • Flowering time: 6 to 7 weeks
  • Indoor height of 1m with a weight of 625g/m2
  • Outdoor height of 2m or higher with a weight of 1300g per plant
  • Equally divided with a ratio of half indica, half Sativa strain

 

3.Critical Mass

With a lineage that’s similar to the Big Bud strain, the Critical Mass strain is a fast-growing high-yield strain that’s perfect for mass production of high-quality cannabis. It is derived from the combination of the Skunk #1 and Afghani strains, giving cultivators a predominantly indica strain that produces high yields in a short time.

It thrives in almost any type of environment, making it ideal for indoor cultivation as well as novice growers who are looking for easy-to-grow high-yield strains.

It has a flowering time of an impressive 6 to 7 weeks, making it a fast grower that produces plenty of yield for cultivation. Since it’s predominantly an indica strain, it grows to a modest height when grown both indoors and outdoors, though it tends to offer higher yields when grown indoors.

It provides a yield weight of around 650 to 750g/m2 while only producing a yield of 500 to 600g per plant when grown outdoors.

Features:

  • Flowering time: 6 to 7 weeks
  • Medium height indoors with a weight of 650 to 750g/m2
  • Also a medium outdoor height with a weight of up to 500 to 600g per plant
  • Predominantly of the indica strain

 

4.Northern Lights x Big Bud

This combination of two high-yielding strains results in a strain that produces large amounts of cannabis in a short time. As a strain that’s meant to be grown indoors, it thrives most in a controlled environment, but it can also be grown outdoors in dry climates due to its high resistance to drought.

It’s a nearly pure indica strain, so those smoking this strain can expect a potent relaxing effect from it. Although it grows more like Sativa strains, it still retains its quick flowering time that’s indicative of its properties as an indica strain.

It grows to a modest size of 1.7m when grown both indoors and outdoors. It produces a high yield of 500 to 600g/m2 when grown indoors while producing a yield of as high as 1kg per plant when grown outdoors.

Features:

  • Flowering time: 8 weeks
  • Indoor height of 1.7m with a weight of 500 to 600g/m2
  • Outdoor height of 1.7m with a weight of 1kg per plant
  • A nearly pure indica strain

 

5.Super Silver Haze

Considered as the “King of Sativas,” this high-yield strain caught the attention of many cultivators when it won 3 consecutive awards from 1997 to 1999. It’s a strain resulting from the combination of the Northern Lights #5, Original Haze, and Skunk#1 strains.

While it produces a high amount of yield, this Sativa strain is a sensitive one which is why novice growers are advised against growing this one as it can get out of hand fairly quickly. In terms of effects, this strain produces more of an energizing effect to users with its 90% Sativa composition.

It’s a strain that’s best grown indoors that can grow to heights of up to 2.2m with a yield weight of 450 to 550g/m2. Outdoors, it can yield as much as 2kg and more per plant.

Features:

  • Flowering time: 8 to 10 weeks
  • Indoor height of 2.2 m with a weight of 450 to 550g/m2
  • Outdoor yield weight of 2kg per plant
  • Predominantly of the Sativa strain

 

High-Yield Outdoor Strains

 

#1.Blue Dream

Crossing the popular and well-loved strains Haze and Blueberry results in this high-yield American strain, the Blue Dream. It was considered the top 1 strain in the US for its high yield and profitability. It’s fairly easy to grow, growing well in both indoor and outdoor environments, but it thrives more when grown outdoors as seen in its yield of 2kg per plant when grown outside. Indoors, it only produces a yield of around 350 to 500g/m2

It’s a Sativa-dominant strain which means it offers more energizing effects rather than relaxing. With the right conditions, it can grow as tall as a tree, especially when cultivated outdoors.

Features:

  • Flowering time: 9 to 10 weeks
  • The indoor yield of 350 to 500g/m2
  • The outdoor yield of around 2kg per plant
  • Predominantly of the Sativa strain

 

#2.Mango Haze

Named as such for its distinct mango-like scent, the Mango Haze is the result of crossing 3 different high-yield sativa strains such as Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze. This particular strain grows tall which can be controlled by growing it indoors. However, it thrives more when grown outdoors.

As a predominantly Sativa strain, it produces energizing effects that stimulate creativity and motivation, perfect for those who prefer to smoke cannabis during the day.

It produces an indoor yield of up to 550g/m2 while outdoors, it can produce as much as 2kg per plant.

Features:

  • Flowering time: 8 to 11 weeks
  • Indoor yield weight of 550g/m2

#4.Moby Dick

This predominantly indica hybrid strain is the result of crossing the famous White Widow with the Sativa Haze. Because of this unique combination, it results in a charged yet relaxing buzz that can last for long.

However, it’s more popular among cultivators for its high-yield that happens during a shorter flowering period. Moreover, with its mold-resistance, it thrives when grown outdoors as it requires more care and attention. As such, it’s not as ideal for novice growers.

When grown indoors, it can produce a yield of up to 650g/m2 while outdoors, it can produce a yield of around 1 to 2kg per plant.

Features:

  • Flowering time: 8 to 10 weeks
