Spain ranks as one of the best countries to grow weed. Why? Well, plenty of sun and naturally fertile soils have a lot to do with it! Many growers in this country use these resources to cultivate a wide range of genetics, but they have a particular penchant for the five varieties listed below. Discover why Spanish growers have developed such a special relationship with these weed strains.

1. Green Gelato Automatic

This speedy autoflowering hybrid loves soaking up the Spanish sun. Born out of a cross between Green Gelato and Cookies Auto, Green Gelato Automatic pairs serious potency with impressive brevity. With a THC content of 24%, she outcompetes many photoperiod strains when it comes to strength. Growers in Spain have taken a liking to this cultivar, largely due to her delicious flavours of candy, earth, and fruit. Of course, they also value her deeply relaxing and clear-headed high.

Here’s a fun fact: Spain has the most diverse collection of climates in Europe. Thankfully, Green Gelato Automatic thrives in most of them, from the temperate south with warm, hot summers to the arid east and the cool north. If you’re cultivating further south, a combination of drip irrigation and living mulch will help to lock in water. Expect indoor plants to yield 375–450g/m², and their outdoor counterparts to churn out up to 175/plant, ready after just 9–10 weeks from germination.

2. Royal Haze Automatic

Spanish growers certainly have a penchant for compact and speedy autos, and Royal Haze Automatic receives a large share of their attention. Royal Queen Seeds created this variety by crossing Amnesia Haze, Skunk, and ruderalis. This legendary lineup passed down an uplifting high, fruity terpenes, and plenty of skunky volatile sulphur compounds. A THC content of 15% initiates a high that hits the sweet spot between sober and totally baked.

Indoor growers in Spain love cultivating this strain, as she remains quite short. A height of 65–85cm makes her suitable for growing in small tents or the corner of a room. Here, she’ll produce up to 350g/m² within 8–9 weeks of sprouting. Outdoor plants grow to 150cm and provide 130–180g/plant. If you experience any pest pressure in this environment, consider biocontrols such as Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) to deal with your issue without harsh chemicals.

3. Mimosa Automatic

Also known as Purple Mimosa Auto, this progeny of Mimosa Auto and Orangeade Auto has become a hit in Spain. With her uplifting and energetic high, she is just perfect for daytime use. A THC content of 21% converges with lively terpenes to deliver a fast-acting effect. Her intense flavours of citrus and diesel have also won over many cultivators and users.

Mimosa Auto flourishes across most of Spain. A rapid life cycle of 9–10 weeks means growers in many regions can achieve multiple harvests throughout the outdoor growing season. Outdoor plants top out at 160cm but can be kept at 120cm using LST. Prepare to harvest and trim up to 130g/plant come harvest time. Indoors, she peaks at 150cm and produces 350–400g/m².

4. Special Queen 1

Special Queen 1 has developed a large growership based on looks alone; many find her shades of purple, brown, and orange simply irresistible. She inherited such beauty from legendary parent strains Power Bud and Skunk. All in all, Special Queen 1 features a moderate THC content of 18% and a terpene profile that strikes the tongue with tastes of earth, fruit, and skunk. Enjoy a long-lasting and physically relaxing high perfect for quiet evenings.

Special Queen 1 thrives in short summers, which means Spanish growers with less ideal weather can still achieve a high-quality harvest. To keep your plants as pest-free as possible, consider incorporating this strain into a polyculture alongside companion plants such as dill, basil, and borage. Although Special Queen 1 is capable of reaching imposing heights of 270cm outdoors, she also manages to churn out up to 550g/plant, ready in late September. Indoors, plants grow to 140cm and offer 500–550g/m² after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks.

5. White Widow

Almost every grower has heard of these legendary genetics. You’ll find these buds in American dispensaries, Dutch coffeeshops, and the gardens and grow rooms of many Spanish weed lovers. RQS’ White Widow descends directly from White Widow S1. Her THC content of 19%, tastes of pine and pepper, and stoning high make her a popular choice for lazy days at the beach.

This strain delivers a fantastic yield without taking up much space. Indoors, a height of 60–100cm means she’ll fit snugly in tight, concealed locations. A maximum yield of 500g/m² guarantees a good return for your efforts. White Widow also performs well outside in many Spanish climates, where she takes full advantage of boatloads of sunshine. Feed her well, and she’ll return the favour in the form of 550–600g/plant. You’ll harvest these buds as the season starts to wind down in early October.
