Germany is known for many things, like beer, bratwurst, and travelling at unlimited speeds on the autobahn. However, Germans are also big cannabis consumers—so much so that the government is legislating to legalize cannabis.

Beyond shops where consumers will be able to buy their favourite cannabis strains, home growing will most likely be made legal, or at least decriminalised. In the meantime, of course, illicit home cultivation is widespread.

So, what are the most popular cannabis strains in Germany at present? Let’s take a look.

1. Quick One

The name gives this one away. If you need speed, Quick One delivers in spades. This strain surges from seed to harvest in just 9 weeks. The child of Lowryder 1 and Old School Indica, Quick One is a reliable, stable autoflowering strain that is particularly beloved by Germany’s clandestine growers. Reaching a maximum height of 60cm indoors and 1m outside, Quick One is indeed ideal for stealth grows. But despite her size, the strain produces satisfying yields. Expect between 275–325g/m² indoors and 100–150g/plant outdoors.

With a 13% THC level, Quick One is the perfect smoke for beginners, or anyone looking for a productive daytime buzz. Alongside her gentle high are citrusy tastes and aromas that make every hit a treat.

2. Royal Haze Automatic

Royal Haze Automatic brings together the best of Haze and Skunk in an autoflowering package. Yes, even German growers can successfully cultivate Haze strains outdoors. This fabulous sativa-dominant hybrid delivers satisfying yields, especially outdoors, and takes much less time to harvest than traditional Haze. Indoors, she reaches compact heights of just 65–85cm and produces respectable yields of up to 350g/m². Outdoors, she can grow to about 1.5m, delivering an impressive 180g/plant. All of this is possible in just 12–13 weeks post-germination—not bad for a Haze.

Once it's time to sample her, Royal Haze Automatic will treat you to a heady, inspiring high that may even encourage you to get things done. Given her 14% THC content, this strain is perfect for daytime consumption. Royal Haze Auto also delivers in the taste department; strong lemony notes mix with earth and herbs to provide a wholly refreshing experience.

3. Amnesia Haze Automatic

Another Haze superstar, this lovely auto seed is the result of many years of breeding and genetic refining. Unlike her photoperiod kin, Amnesia Haze Auto grows short and fast, but offers the same euphoric high and sweet taste as the original. This, of course, makes her quite valuable in the eyes of German growers. Unlike most sativas, Amnesia Haze Auto only takes about 80–85 days from germination to harvest. Reaching around 1 metre in height, her yields are surprisingly large. Outdoors, she can produce up to 180g/plant. Indoors, she delivers as much as 400g/m² with the appropriate care.

Amnesia Haze Auto's lovely, foxtail-like buds smell of fresh earth and citrus, which intensifies during the curing process. When it comes to her high, invigorating and uplifting sensations are the dish of the day.

4. Northern Light

Northern Light may originate from the West Coast of the United States, but she has a firm place on this list too. Few names in the cannabis sphere command such acclaim as this specimen. The offspring of cultivars hailing from Afghanistan and Thailand, this heavily indica-dominant hybrid is also heavy in the yield department. Despite her indica nature, Northern Light can reach heights of 1.2m indoors and well over 2m outside. Thankfully, her short flowering stage and large yields make the venture worth it for growers in Germany. Indoors, she can yield up to 500g/m² in 8–9 weeks of bloom. Outdoors, she can yield as much as 625g/plant come late September, but needs a nice sunlit spot to deliver her best.

On the taste and effects front, this is a knockout strain. She is absolutely guaranteed to deliver a blissful couch-lock experience, alongside divine scents and flavours of citrus, spice, and earth.

5. Green Gelato Automatic

Germans love GG Auto for a very simple reason; she defies stereotypes on every front while delivering a mind-blowing high. What’s not to like? This cultivar is the autoflowering version of the legendary original Green Gelato, which itself is the lovechild of Thin Mint Cookies and Sunset Sherbet. In the grow-op, this easy-to-grow hybrid will reach a maximum height of 1.2m, delivering glistening, tall, narrow colas in just 70 days after germination. Indoors, she can produce about 450g/m², while outdoor growers can rake in up to 175g/plant.

With such powerful parent strains, it should come as no surprise that Green Gelato Auto is one of the most aromatic and potent auto strains on the market today. With sweet citrus flavours alongside 24% THC, just a few hits is enough to induce a tension-busting, mood-elevating high that lasts hours.
