As a versatile and hardy plant, cannabis can grow in a wide array of climates and environments. However, different strains are better suited to certain conditions. Not every cultivar performs well in warm climates closer to the equator, but there are varieties that actually thrive in areas where the growing season is hot and sunny. Learn more about our top 5 strains for the hot climate!

1. SOUR DIESEL

Cali breeders created Sour Diesel under the warm sun of the southern West Coast. Since then, she’s spread among the international cannabis community, leaving a trail of tasty terpenes. She stems from Original Diesel, Northern Light, Shiva, and Hawaiian. Her genetic profile of 70% sativa and 30% indica generates a cerebral effect. She produces densely packed flowers that hold a THC content of 19%, alongside medium levels of CBD. Sour Diesel doesn’t fall short when it comes to productivity, either. Indoor plants produce 475–525g/m², whereas their outdoor counterparts put out up to 600g per plant.

5. FRUIT SPIRIT

Fruit Spirit, as the name suggest, is a strain we developed in a bid to make one of the most tongue tantalising and mouth-watering strains possible. She is a sativa with a fierce exotic streak in her; as such, she is perfect for growing outdoors in warmer areas of the world, such as Spain, Italy, or Greece. When allowed to thrive in the great outdoors and really spread her roots, she can produce up to 525g per plant of some very cerebrally uplifting bud. Definitely one for the connoisseur! Fruit Spirit becomes ready for harvest in early October.
