We all want to grow monster marijuana plants that produce many ounces or even pounds per plant.
Marijuana genetics make an important difference in yield and THC percentages.
The strains we recommend here as monster marijuana plants have genetics that program plants to produce huge buds and more THC than most other strains.
How and where you grow marijuana makes as much difference in yield as the strains of marijuana you grow.
No matter what cannabis genetics you start with, for example, unless you have a well-managed marijuana grow room with high ceilings, precise climate control, and ample HID lights, you get fewer grams per plant indoors than you would if you’re growing the same strains outdoors.
You do best by giving give each marijuana plant lots of space for roots.
Or you use a deep water culture or other pure hydroponics system that maximizes delivery of nutrients, oxygen, and water so you have smaller roots but bigger production.
Similarly, get bigger yields using professionalized marijuana-specific hydroponics nutrients and supplements such as pH Perfect hydroponics base nutrients, Big Bud, Bud Factor X, and Overdrive rather than generic nutrients such as General Hydroponics, Scotts Miracle-Gro, and other schwag fertilizers.
You see healthier plants and bigger yields when you give your plants the best food and environment.
Fat buds come more when you properly top and trim your monster marijuana plants early so they develop multiple main stems instead of the Christmas tree shape that most marijuana plants develop into if they’re untrimmed.
Another way to get monster cannabis plants is to provide more room for their roots, and feed the root zone beneficial microbes such as Voodoo Juice, Piranha, and Tarantula (along with a booster like Roots Excelurator), so roots get bigger and can support more top growth.
Now here are our favorite, time-tested marijuana strains that have the genetic tendency and produce large huge buds and lots of pounds for every 1000-watt light…
BRIAN BERRY COUGH:
The photo says it all. This strain’s buds are like little baseball bats.
Brian Berry Cough is a high-yielding cross between Strawberry Cough and Cherry Space Queen, from the legendary TGA Seeds.
These plants grow very large in diameter if you trim them early, and not only will you get massive buds, you’ll also get leaves covered in resin so you can make hashish and cannabis extracts and concentrates.
You need 8-10 weeks in bloom phase, and Subcool advises us there are two phenotypes of this potent, big-yielding hybrid.
One has a fruity flavor and smell, and the other tends towards sour taste and smell.
JACK HERER: Originally bred by Sensi Seeds, but now better sourced as a clone, or from USA seed breeders, Jack Herer marijuana combines some of the best old school genetics from the 1960s and 70s.
When you feed Jack Herer using Bud Candy, Big Bud, and Overdrive in a properly lit indoor garden with C02, or growing outdoors in moderately-warm and dry climates, you get super-large yields, and the high is heavenly.
Jack Herer carries Haze and other Sativa genetics, so be prepared to top and train vigorously, or to see it go tall if untopped and especially outdoors.
We’ve grown out the Sensi Seeds version of Jack Herer and gotten four phenotypes.
We selected the phenotype that was the least Haze of the four– a short, dense, peppery-smelling, hardy plant that produces like an Indica but stones like a Sativa.
Most versions of Jack Herer marijuana have a powerful Haze scent while growing, and especially when you properly dry and cure your Herer buds.
CINDERELLA 99: This is a legendary heavy yielder with a short (50-63 day) bloom phase, which makes it nice for outdoor growers who want their buds ready for harvest before autumn rains come in.
This cannabis strain contains Jack Herer influences, but does not stone you like Jack Herer. It has its own unique high.
Given the serious amount of Haze genetics in this strain, it’s amazing it gives you such a big yield.
BIG BUD: The name says it all. This strain combines Afgahnica and Skunk Indica genetics and has a short bloom phase of 51-57 days, and is a favorite of growers seeking monster marijuana plants that have massive yields.
The plants tend to grow short and dense, but topping them once around the third week of grow phase will give you even more bud-producing structure.
Big Bud can take heavy feeding from start to finish, and the bloom booster named Big Bud was named for this very high-yielding cannabis strain.
Give it a pH Perfect hydroponics base nutrient program with additives like Big Bud and Bud Candy, flushing every three weeks during bloom phase, and Overdrive at the end, with a 7-day final flush.
You’ll have to provide netting or staking to keep the bud-laden stems of Big Bud monster marijuana plants from breaking.
You get a rather sweet smoke from Big Bud, and the high is not as crushingly couchlock as you might expect.
Indoors in a professionally-run garden you can easily see five ounces or more per plant.
WHITE WIDOW: Used to be that almost every marijuana grower was growing or had grown this famous strain.
In the last five years you see less White Widow, but it’s a mistake to forget this heavy-yielding, easy to grow, crystally marijuana strain.
You can now procure new-style White Widow seeds and clones.
Breeders adjusted the amount of Indica cannabis genetics, adding a hint more Sativa so the high is more uplifting than before.
This marijuana is also known for producing high percentages of resin glands, so it’s often grown for hashish production.
If you want to have fun breeding your own marijuana, cross White Widow with Gorilla Glue #4. We did, and the results were superb!
Regardless of which monster marijuana plants strain you choose, remember genetics alone aren’t the sole determiner of whether you’ll grow monster marijuana plants or harvest monster yields.
Also note many monster marijuana strains that produce the largest yields are Indica-dominant, which means a different kind of high than pure Sativa or a Sativa-dominant hybrid.
When you want the largest marijuana plants with the biggest yields, the monster marijuana strains we just gave you are going to yield huge stacks of sticky buds… as long as you’re paying attention to growing conditions and feeding them good food, as any caring grower should
