If you've found yourself here, then you're brand new to this whole growing thing, or you've had terrible luck in the past with prior attempts, and you'll be happy to know that you're not alone! A significant number of cannabis enthusiasts have tried and failed too many times to count before getting the hang of what it takes to pull off a successful crop, and there is no shame in it. It usually happens when you're given a handful of seeds from a strain that has needs far above what you are prepared to handle, and things can go sideways disappointingly fast.

What is a beginner grower?

You might be wondering if you truly belong here, especially if you've been trying to figure out how to grow for several years. However, a beginner isn't just someone who has absolutely no prior knowledge on the subject. Instead, we consider beginners to be anyone who could use a confidence boost when it comes to their ability (or inability) to cultivate a bountiful crop, so if that's you, then you're going to want to stick around for our list of the best strains for beginners.

What makes these weed strains ideal?

It is a myth that all weed strains are equal when it comes to growing them, as each type will prefer a slightly different level of care and require a vastly unique size of space. Some of the most tropical strains won't get past the few weeks after germination without precise temperatures and levels of humidity which can be challenging to maintain even with the assistance of a greenhouse.

Many weed strains will tower over the average person as they grow, but the ones we're going to highlight here are small, hardy, and incredibly resilient regardless of the environment they're grown in, which leaves you far more room for error if something happens where you make a wrong move along the way. These easy strains are just that, the absolute best most foolproof options that are on the market today, and most of them are also easy to locate in seed form.

How about seasoned cultivators?

Suppose you're a more seasoned cannabis connoisseur who is having a hard time getting the results that you seek. In that case, this is also the perfect place for you because even with plenty of experience, sometimes it's nice to have a foolproof plant that will hold to anything that you can throw at it. That is especially true if you're busy, travel a lot or cannot provide the ideal environment for such a tropical species, so if any of this describes you, then these easy strains are likely an excellent choice for you too.
