Top Fastest Growing Cannabis Seeds By Categories (2020 Update)
Choosing the right seeds is the first most important part of a successful grow. These selections from Autoflowering, Feminized and CBD plants are our most popular fast growing strains. They are easy to grow, produce good yields and deliver the goods all the way.
Cannabis cultivators look for specific traits when selecting a strain. Some search for flavour and potency above all else, whereas others are more concerned with speed. Luckily for both the former and latter camps, the breeders at Royal Queen Seeds have dedicated a lot of time to developing top-quality strains that are quick off the mark and rapid to deliver their goods.
Our team has created both fast-flowering feminized genetics and autoflowering genetics to satisfy all types of growers. The former offers all the benefits of photoperiod strains, but with a reduced flowering time.
Our autoflowering varieties, on the other hand, are the fastest in our archive. Infused with Cannabis ruderalis genetics, these cultivars don’t require external cues to flower. Instead, they surge from seed to harvest in a matter of weeks, making them perfect for stealthy home growers.
Let’s explore the fastest RQS cannabis seeds by category. Though the following timeframes are approximations, they are accurate.
Autoflowering seeds can be both sativa and indica. However, they have been crossed with a type of cannabis called ruderalis. This enables them to flower on their own in as little as 2-4 weeks without exposing them to strict 12 hour light regimes.
Some of our most popular strains in this category include:
Quick One is one of the fastest auto-growing strains on the planet. The plant is based on the original auto flowering strain – Lowryder. This strain was created from a cross between William’s Wonder x Northern Lights x Ruderalis. These plants are usually ready for harvest in 8 weeks from germination. The plants also reach between 50 and 60 cm and can yield up to 150g per plant.
|Lowryder 1 x Old School Indica|
|275 – 325 gr/m2|
|50 – 60 cm|
|5 – 6 Weeks|
|Sativa 10% Indica 60% Ruderalis 30%|
|100 – 150 gr/plant|
|60 – 100 cm|
|9 – 10 weeks after sprouting|
Easy Bud received her name for good reason. As well as being one of the easiest cannabis strains to grow, she also boasts one of the fastest growing cycles. Her speedy and robust nature makes her ideal for those seeking a fast turnover, and those ready to take their first step into the world of growing weed.
As the progeny of White Indica and ruderalis, Easy Bud produces frosty flowers featuring a THC content of 12% alongside citrusy and earthy terpenes. These buds won’t blast you to the moon, but they will offer a soothing and subtle effect perfect for any time of day.
After germinating these seeds, Easy Bud will explode into a mature plant in as little as eight weeks. Prepare to harvest up to 325g/m² from indoor plants, and between 30–80g/plant from outdoor specimens.
|White Indica x Ruderalis|
|275 – 325 gr/m2|
|50 – 60 cm|
|5 – 7 weeks|
|Sativa 15% Indica 55% Ruderalis 30%|
|30 – 80 gr/plant|
|60 – 110 cm|
|9 – 10 weeks after sprouting|
Not only does Royal Bluematic offer quick results, but she also delivers aesthetically stunning flowers and relaxing body highs. This strain emerged after Royal Queen Seeds crossed the legendary cultivar Blueberry with a high-performing ruderalis variety. Thus, they took the best traits of this classic and made them much easier and faster to cultivate.
After placing her seeds in the soil, growers should be prepared to harvest her bud within a timeframe of 8–9 weeks. Such impressive speed makes her a great candidate for guerrilla growers looking to stay below the radar.
Royal Bluematic blooms colourful buds boasting shades of orange, green, purple, and yellow, as well as a THC content of 14%. Her phytochemical mix provides a stoning high augmented by sweet and earthy flavours.
|Blueberry x Ruderalis|
|425 – 475 gr/m2|
|60 – 75 cm|
|7 – 8 weeks|
|Sativa 10% Indica 60% Ruderalis 30%|
|70 – 120 gr/plant|
|70 – 100 cm|
|11 – 12 weeks after sprouting|
|Stoned and powerful|
FEMINIZED FAST GROWING STRAINS
Feminized cannabis seeds are designed to produce only female plants. Feminized seeds will produce a female plant 99.99% of the time. Don’t waste your time trying to produce flower from a male plant – they will only pollinate you females, resulting in seeds rather than bud.
Fast Flowering strains are hybrids of these and autoflowering strains. They are genetically coded to produce flowers quickly with little care, but still rely on a change in photoperiod to flower.
Some of our most popular selections in this category include:
CANDY KUSH EXPRESS
As well as offering a rapid flowering time, Candy Kush Express is a rich source of terpenes, emanating notes of sugary sweet citrus. Her speed of growth and incredible taste make her a great strain for cannabis chefs who want a crop that yields well on a regular basis. This strain features a close balance of 60% indica genetics and 40% sativa, which exerts an effect that relieves tension from the body while keeping the mind alert and functional.
Candy Kush Express is a speedy photoperiod variety that features a flowering time of only 7–9 weeks. Plants grown indoors under good-quality lights will yield up to 525g/m². Those grown outdoors are capable of yielding between 450–500g/plant.

Sometimes, you may not be sure about which cannabis strains to purchase for your next grow. Your personal taste and circumstances will greatly determine your decision, so while some of you may be looking for high yields or certain effect, others may prefer strains resistant to moulds or with the shortest possible flowering period.
In many occasions, the path followed by breede r s to develop their genetics is similar, looking to fix certain traits in the offspring. Thus, today we’ll present a list of strains known for their early flowering trait. As you’ll see next, all varieties listed here have a bloom period no longer than 8 weeks, something that — on the other hand — doesn’t question their quality at all.
About Fast Flowering Seeds
Short flowering seeds occur by crossing various cannabis strains with fast genetics. The breeding helps reduce the time it takes the plant to flower or bud.
Autoflowering is another method used to produce short flowing THC seeds. The autoflowering strains that flower the fastest are created by making the plant skip the vegetative stage of its life cycle. Instead, the plant automatically goes straight to the flowering stage.
Fast flowering THC seeds come in a wide variety of strains. They produce quickly-feminized strains of cannabis, rich in THC. In some cases, high-grade clones are merged with 3rdgeneration autoflowering marijuana to produce first generation cannabis hybrids.
Growing fast flowering seeds
Generally, it takes a marijuana crop an entire season to completely flower, about 3–5 months. However, with short flowering THC seeds, full-flowering can be accomplished in as little as eight weeks. These strains are genetically coded, so they bloom in expedited time. Your cannabis plants can be ready for harvesting after just 6–7 weeks of flowering.
Planting short flowering THC seeds can be done indoors or outdoors. Cultivating your weed indoors allows you to grow a smaller crop, much faster. Outdoor growing maximizes the yield of your crop, much quicker than with other types of seeds. And, because the plants flower so quickly, you have a good chance of beating the bad weather.
All of this helps to maximize the yield of your cannabis crop. These types of THC seeds require very little maintenance when grown outdoors or indoors.

The growing interest in medical use does not stop with plants that deliver a wallop of THC. CBD dominant strains are great for patients looking for fast growing relief without a “heavy” high. This includes both low-THC plants and a few sativas. Beyond smoking, however, because of their interesting flavours, they are also becoming popular with other parts of the market. This includes health-conscious foodies and even endurance athletes.

The plant can also produce yields of up to 450g per square meter in optimal grow conditions. The variety has a pungent, citrusy aroma. It can also produce a clear and comfortable buzz when smoked. The light and functional high it produces is great for use during the day — and of course, it is an excellent source of CBD.
This is a hybrid with low THC that produces a sweet, honey-like flavour with its pleasurable smoke. As the name suggests, Medical Mass is a strain rich in CBD. With a short flowering time of between 7 to 8 weeks and a yield of up to 550g. The plant itself only reaches a maximum height of 1 meter. This makes it an ideal indoor variety.
