Growing cannabis outdoors, as Mother Nature intended, is an extremely rewarding process. However, not everyone is fortune enough to live in a climate where the sun beats down all day and keeps the temperatures hot. Many growers have to contend with temperate climates, where heavy rain, strong winds, and cooler temperatures are common. Fortunately, there are cannabis strains that can be grown in such conditions, so we have put together a list of our hardiest, most resistant RQS strains to help you choose the best for your situation.

SOMANGO XL

Somango XL is a cannabis strain we created to produce a classic, uplifting cerebral rush, without the risk of feeling tired or lethargic. Combining Somango x Critical 47, she also boasts an extreme resilience to adverse conditions, allowing her to contend with the less cannabis friendly weather seen in places like the UK or the Netherlands. She will grow up to 2m in height, with a production potential of 600g per plant in optimal conditions. Somango XL becomes ready for harvest towards the end of September.

As the progeny of Haze and White Widow, she’s been gifted with remarkably stable and forgiving traits. She’ll soldier on through whipping rain and slicing wind.
