France’s stance on cannabis may be softening up, but the herb is still illegal to grow in the country. Regardless, huge numbers of covert growers and breeders continue to cultivate the herb and harvest beautiful bounties. France truly loves weed, and the 11% of the population who like to indulge are a testament to this. But which strains does the country love the most? Check out the five cultivars below to see what French growers are mad about.

SKUNK XL

Skunk #1 originated in Cali, where breeders developed the legendary variety using pure landraces from Colombia, Mexico, and Afghanistan. The hybrid has since given rise to a long list of popular modern strains. Skunk XL builds upon the original variety and flexes a hard-hitting body high, a brief flowering time, and a skunky, earthy aroma. She emerged from a fusion of Skunk #1 and Afghan as a perfectly balanced strain that offers a cerebral buzz alongside her famous physical effects.

Skunk XL produces bulbous and resinous buds with a THC value of 17%. She doesn’t skimp out on these flowers, either. Indoor plants offer a generous 600–650g/m² after a speedy flowering phase of 7–8 weeks. Those grown outdoors reward cultivators with 625–675g/plant, ready to harvest during October.

It comes as no surprise that a country with a penchant for sweet pastries fell in love with Fat Banana.

Just be prepared for a pronounced and long-lasting experience.

AMNESIA HAZE

Expert breeders crafted the original Amnesia Haze just north of France in the cannabis mecca of the Netherlands. It just so happens that France welcomed the strain’s high THC levels and motivating sativa high with open arms. As one of the most popular sativas in the nation, French cannabis smokers love harnessing her energising high during the day to get creative and fired up. With a name like “Amnesia”, it’s no surprise that this high is often perceived as near-psychedelic. Sensations are heightened and bliss is guaranteed.

Amnesia Haze gifts growers with a fruitful harvest every time, considering you cater to her nutritional and light demands. Indoor plants deliver 600–650g/m² within 10–11 weeks of flowering, and their outdoor counterparts kick out 650–700g/plant in late October.
