Cannabis growers in Spain have it easy compared to most of their European neighbours. Most of the country enjoys a temperate climate with blazing hot summers—a perfect environment for cannabis, if plants are kept well-hydrated. Moreover, Spanish culture has a somewhat relaxed approach to cannabis, making it the ideal place to explore what the plant has to offer.So, how do weed lovers in the country take advantage of their climate and relaxed laws? Many pour their efforts into growing the 5 outstanding strains below. 

1. Green Gelato 

As one of the tastiest and most potent hybrids in the Royal Queen Seeds archive, it’s no surprise that Green Gelato has made waves in Spain. This indica-dominant powerhouse delivers a heavy blow to the body and mind, keeping the user stoned for hours at a time. She inherited a massive THC level of 27% from legendary parent strains Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Her stunning colas produce gorgeous shades of green, orange, and purple. These buds deliver striking flavours of sweetness, citrus, and earthiness with every hit. Aside from her potent effects, Green Gelato also provides an impressive yield. Indoor plants pump out 500–770g/m², whereas outdoor specimens offer around 800g/plant.

2. El Patron

El Patron stands as a firm favourite among Spain’s budding cannabis community. Featuring a long list of attractive traits, she gained serious recognition after winning first place for “Common Weed Cultured in Soil” at the Highlife Cup. As the offspring of AMG and Shiva, this sativa-dominant hybrid exerts a powerful stoning high fuelled by a THC content of 22%. Herbal and peppery terpenes come into play by soothing the body and clearing the mind.

El Patron thrives in the country’s mostly warm and dry climate. The strain needs a long summer to reach full maturity, and most regions in Spain fit the bill. Outdoor plants peak at a mighty height of 200cm and reward growers with up to 600g/plant come late October. While she thrives outside, El Patron still does well indoors, peaking at 130cm and producing 450–550g/m² after 9–10 weeks of bloom.

3. OG Kush

If you hang around stoners, it doesn’t take long to hear the name OG Kush. This world-famous cultivar originated in Northern California before conquering the global cannabis scene. At RQS, we crafted our own version of the legend by crossing Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush. With dense, nugget-like colas, a THC content of 19%, and a contrasting yet complementary terpene profile consisting of fruity and pine aromas, this strain fires from all cylinders. When you blaze up these buds, get ready for a relaxing body high that will put you in the mood to nestle down and talk deep.

Because OG Kush only requires a short growing season, she makes a perfect choice for Spanish growers seeking a slightly early harvest. Outdoor plants exceed heights of 200cm and produce up to 550g/plant come early October. Indoors, this strain tops out at 160cm and offers a return of 425–475g/m² in around 7–9 weeks of bloom.

4. Royal Gorilla

We’re of the opinion that growers of all countries love Royal Gorilla, but those from Spain appear to have a true penchant for this strain. Why exactly? Her astronomical THC content of 27% likely has a big role to play! This mind-melting beast descends from Sour Dubb, Chem Sis, and Chocolate Diesel, and lands a heavy blow to the body and mind. Her potency makes her an ideal candidate for playing around with edibles and concentrates, and her tastes of chocolate, pine, and fruit make such experiments all the more worthwhile.

Spanish growers rejoice; outdoor plants reach 170cm in height and provide 550–600g/plant of plump buds come mid-October, while those grown indoors reach 90–160cm and churn out a generous 500–550g/m² in 8–10 weeks of bloom. If growing in particularly warm regions in Spain, consider planting companion species such as squash nearby to serve as a living ground cover to reduce evaporation.

5. Purplematic CBD

It turns out weed growers in Spain love their CBD. Exhibit A: Purplematic CBD. This cultivar contains a huge CBD content of 17% alongside THC levels of 0.5%. She won’t get you high at all, at least not in the traditional sense, but you’ll experience a lucid and clear-headed effect perfect for daytime use. Alongside this functional effect, Purplematic CBD offers unique flavours and scents of candy, fruit, and pineapple.

With her striking purple-green flowers, Purplematic CBD will become the showpiece of your grow room or garden. Peaking at 120cm indoors, she’ll reward you with up to 450g/m² of buds after a total growing time of 7–8 weeks! If you prefer to grow outdoors, watch your plants peak at 140cm (that’s pretty tall for an auto) and deliver 110–150g/plant.
