Highest Yielding Indoor Strains in 2020

Ready to rock 2020 with some monster harvests? If you’re looking for bigger yields this year, you’re in great company. Cannabis growers are always looking to boost the size of a harvest while enhancing the quality of the crop. This year it’s as important as ever to get more out of every bud, so here is our comprehensive list of the best strains of 2020 in terms of bigger yields and ease of growing.

Planning for Maximum Yield: The Basics

Yield is just another word for harvest in the cannabis grower vertical. For indoor growers, yield tends to be measured by square meter of growing space—how much product you can get out of every square meter of plant in that space.

There are a host of factors that can impact yield. This is the main reason why estimating yield is imprecise. Roughly, however, for most indoor cannabis strains under good growing conditions today, you can expect at least 14 ounces of product per square meter as a baseline estimate.

From there, of course, it might go way up, depending on the strain and the quality of the seeds. And since yield is so crucial to most home growers, that quality and the potency of the cannabis seeds definitely matter.

No matter how green your thumb is or how much time you spend on lighting or trimming your garden, to a large extent, the yield is controlled by the genetics of the plant. In this guide, we offer up the ten best, easy-to-grow cannabis strains to grow this year based on high yield.

Let’s face it—there’s never been a better time to start. Legalization is becoming more and more mainstream. There are over 30 medical marijuana states in the US already.

And right now, it’s the tail end of a planting season and warm weather is here, no matter where you are. It’s time to choose your highest yielding strains for this year’s crop—and we have some ideas.

As we evaluated the strains that are out there right now, we considered lots of factors. Many new growers especially are hoping for the most budget friendly strain, but although cost is important, this isn’t always the smartest move if you really want to end up with a harvest. You also have to consider whether your chosen strain is suitable for medical use, its estimated flowering period, the probable THC content, and other factors.

It’s never exactly cheap to grow medical grade cannabis, but selecting high potency, high quality seeds to scale up yields is one way to reduce costs. Fortunately, as we are currently living through a sort of cannabis breeding renaissance, there are many excellent, high-yield cultivars out there that produce dense, sticky buds frosty with trichomes.

Here we’ve narrowed it down to 10 of the highest yielding strains. We aimed for the sweetest yield-to-effort ratio for new growers, and tried to include indicas, sativas, and hybrids.

Each of these strains is reliable, and the linked seed bank will not let you down. Follow germination instructions to harvest an impressive yield, and remember that autoflowering versions of seeds, although they will probably outperform other strains will still produce less than photoperiod versions of the same strains.

So here they are, the best high yielding strains for 2020:

Big Bud

If you’re looking for a certain cash crop that’s also an excellent strain for breeding, Big Bud is a great choice. This high yield cannabis cultivar has won multiple awards. This child of love and science was brewed by Sensi Seeds from Afghani, Northern Lights, and Skunk #1 and genetics.

Big Bud cannabis plants are responsive, remaining at medium height when grown indoors. Yet these huge buds, the inspiration for the strain’s name, truly pack on the extra weight during flowering. In fact the one downside to growing Big Bud is that these plants will be heavy enough to collapse under their own weight if you don’t support them.

Since the 1980s, Big Bud has basically been the old school high yield strain. Especially when you consider how compact this plant is, 600g/m2 is a pretty impressive yield.

Better still, this is a great choice for breeders. These genetics have gone on to produce super stars like Granddaddy Purple, which have all the flavor and stoney effects of a purple strain or something like OG Kush with the high yields of the Big Bud genetics.

Speaking of genetics, another reason this cultivar is so friendly to growers is that it is very resistant to diseases, molds, and pests. Even for noobs, basic care will result in huge, heavy nugs on these plants.

Benefits:

  • Produces seriously huge buds
  • Classic indica effects
  • Delicious, unique, fruity aromas and flavors
  • High THC levels
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Type: photoperiod
  • Sativa/Indica: 40% / 60%
  • Seed Sex: feminized
  • Average plant height: 36″-60″
  • Ready for harvest in: 49 to 77 days
  • Approximate indoor yield: up to 25 ounces/3 square feet
  • Taste and aroma: sweet, lemon, fruity, grape, peppery, spicy, earthy
  • Effects: euphoric, energetic, happy uplifted, and relaxed
  • Medical treatment: stress, pain including chronic pain, headaches including migraines, PTSD, insomnia, and eating disorders
  • THC content up to 20%
  • CBD content up to 0.1%

Blue Dream

Blue Dream—the sometimes maddeningly popular offspring of the famous indica strain Blueberry and sativa powerhouse Super Silver Haze. It’s not just an amazing medical marijuana strain or some basic recreational strain that accidentally got popular.

Blue Dream hits that sweet spot with a powerful, potent, sativa dominant set of effects. This relaxing but uplifting hybrid delivers peppery, berry scented aromas and a lasting buzz.

The true legend status of this strain comes in with the way you get to slide into a gentle euphoria and then settle into a full-body relaxation. Perfect for both experienced users and newbies, it’s a great all day strain.

Just like the rest of the experience, the effects are balanced, with deep body effects and a nice cerebral high that’s not too much. The end result is relaxing for mind and body, but not sedating.

Blue Dream is also a grower’s favorite for its massive yields. It is happiest growing indoors, in that it can be sensitive to fluctuations in temperature and weather. Make sure you’ve got space for it, though, because it is a tall plant, and for best results prepare to top your crop as it gets taller. This strain does respond well to SCROG and SOG techniques.

Blue Dream is also an excellent breeder, and you’re likely to get plenty of interest in any progeny from this strain. Still, especially for a sativa-dominant strain, this is a truly easy-to-grow option. One of the best, even with less effort, with a high yield within 10 weeks.

Benefits:

  • Hugely popular strain
  • Great resistance to mildew and pests
  • High yields
  • Balanced effects
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Type: photoperiod
  • Sativa/Indica: 60% / 40%
  • Seed sex: feminized
  • Average plant height: 48″-72″
  • Ready for harvest in: 63 to 70 days
  • Approximate indoor yield: up to 21 ounces/3 square feet
  • Taste and aroma: berry, blueberry, fruity, herbal, mangoes, sharp earthy, sweet, vanilla
  • Effects: creative, euphoric, happy, relaxed, uplifted
  • Medical treatment: depression, fatigue, inflammation, headaches including migraines, menstrual cramps, pain, PTSD, stress
  • THC content: up to 24%
  • CBD content: up to 2%

Cheese Quake

One of the most interesting things about Cheese Quake is its amazing genetic history. Although its parents are both pretty stoney indica strains—Querkle and Cheese—this exceptional hybrid is very well-balanced, with an energizing form of relaxation suitable for almost any kind of activity.

In fact, one of the things consumers like most about Cheese Quake is the way the mental high and the body buzz balance out so well. The head effects hit first as stress melts away, and then the pain relief sets in. For many users, this is a fine social strain, although maybe not something you’re going to use to climb Mount Everest!

Like most of the cheese family, the aroma of this one is surprising. Yes, some definite sour undertones that are pungent, but not an actual cheesy smell. It’s more of an umami, a savory flavor with hints of fruity, sweet grape.

Cheese Quake is a decently potent cultivar, usually weighing in around 18% THC. It also may have CBD content of up to 1.5%, which can add pain relief but may reduce its psychoactive effects. This makes for a manageable experience and lots of relaxation without the couch-lock and lost time.

Better still from a grower’s standpoint, Cheese Quake is very forgiving and easy to grow. Better grown indoors, you lose nothing taking these marijuana seeds inside as these plants really spread and grow as fast as you want. As long as you top off early, you’ll stay in great shape with large, heavy proportions and an amazing yield.

Benefits:

  • Huge, heavy buds
  • Very fast-growing roots
  • Excellent pain relief qualities
  • Nice, balanced high
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Type: photoperiod
  • Sativa/Indica: 40% / 60%
  • Seed Sex: feminized
  • Average plant height: 36″-72″
  • Ready for harvest in: 56 to 63 days
  • Approximate indoor yield: up to 18 ounces/3 square feet
  • Taste and aroma: cheese, grape, pungent, sour, sweet
  • Effects: euphoric, focused, happy, relaxed, uplifted
  • Medical treatment: anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, insomnia, muscle relaxer, pain, rheumatoid arthritis, stress
  • THC content: up to 18%
  • CBD content: up to 1.5%

Chocolope

For one of the absolute easiest sativa strains to grow, try Chocolope. This great strain crosses Cannalope Haze and Chocolate Thai. It’s a fabulous, energetic daytime strain for getting things done and just feeling some joy. In fact, if you want the gorgeous, happy energy of an Amnesia Haze or Sour Diesel but don’t want to deal with a tough grow? Chocolope is your plant.

Need that cannabis strain that’s your morning coffee to get you going and then some? Want to relax, get motivated, and feel happy without getting the munchies or couch-lock? Gearing up to create something truly inspired, but you need to push yourself into getting started? Need to treat sour mood or minor pain without losing your edge? Chocolope is ideal.

Unlike most sativa and even sativa hybrid strains, this one really is an easy grow. All you really need is a tall, well-ventilated space, because its one weakness is mildews and molds. Oh—and these plants get tall. Up to 87 inches! So yes, you will need some clearance for these beauties, but they will reward you.

Benefits:

  • Happiest mood in town
  • Very easy sativa grow
  • Delicious flavor
  • Difficulty: very easy
  • Type: auto-flowering and photoperiod

  • Effects: happy, euphoria, uplifted, enhanced mood, creative, energetic
  • Medical treatment: anxiety, PTSD, and Bipolar Disorder
  • THC content: up to 21%
  • CBD content: up to 1.5%

Critical Mass

Critical Mass is a grower’s friend and a medical marijuana patient’s dream, making it one of our top ten best strains to grow right now. Descended from Skunk #1 and Afghani, this indica-dominant strain is ideal for the evening, with up to 22% THC and at least 1% CBD for additional mellow pain relief.

But if we’re being perfectly honest, Critical Mass gets even more fans from the grower side. Commercial grows use this mass production cultivar specifically because of its very high yields and ease of cloning.

Cultivated properly, Critical Mass yield even more when grown indoors, because it is prone to mold issues. Good spacing and ventilation is all you need to deal with this, and that’s the only trouble you’re likely to run into—a great strain even for beginners.

The fun part with Critical Mass comes closer to harvest time. The buds are extremely dense and heavy, and in many cases growers must use stakes to support their plants. It’s a little bit of effort for a huge payoff, because you’re literally helping the plants support that gold that you’re waiting to harvest.

Benefits:

  • Exceptional indoor yield
  • Short flowering time
  • Medical patient favorite
  • Relatively high CBD content
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Type: photoperiod

  • THC content: up to 22%
  • CBD content: up to 1%

Gold Leaf

For all of those who love instant gratification: Gold Leaf is your strain. It was bred specifically to deliver an instant hit of giggly joy, and that’s what it does.

The other breeding goal behind this strain was intended for the grower: reliable, heavy yields. For both of these reasons, Gold Leaf makes this list—and its high THC levels are a huge bonus too, let’s face it.

So, this is a fantastic option for a first time grower looking to have a 7-foot-tall plant seemingly spring out of nowhere, thanks to some sativa genetics. Use Sea of Green techniques to keep a lid on height if you like. And, with a little cropping and pruning, you’ll soon be seeing big yields of up to 23 ounces per square meter—pretty awesome.

Benefits:

  • Super happy, giggly strain
  • Reliable, big yields
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate

Gorilla Glue

Balanced hybrid Gorilla Glue is a popular standby in dispensaries and personal stashes across the US. Its family history includes Chocolate Diesel, Chem’s Sister, and Sour Dubb.

Gorilla Glue may be famous for being a high-THC knockout, but it’s also a super yielder. This is even more striking when you consider the plant is reasonably compact—especially inside. GG is also highly resistant to diseases, mold, and pests, so there is less maintenance involved with the grow. In fact, you set up your grow lights and go–no fuss, no muss with Gorilla Glue.

  • Effects: euphoric, happy, relaxed, sleepy, uplifted
  • Medical treatment: anxiety, depression, insomnia, lack of appetite, pain, stress
  • THC content: up to 28%
  • CBD content: low

Why GSC? Well, you just can’t go anywhere these days without running into a million cookies, cake, and related strains—for good reason. This is just a powerhouse line from a grower’s perspective. With a high yield to boot, this has to be among the best strains to be growing in 2020.

Patients and recreational consumers alike love the GSC strain and its many offshoots. Delivering full body symptom relief and a gentle yet powerful suite of cerebral effects, this California cultivar earned its many awards.

For beginner growers GSC is a great strain, despite its extreme yields and high THC concentrations. This is because the GSC cannabis seeds are very resistant to infestations of mold and pests.

[Not that we would tell you to break the law. We would not. Never break the law. Be cool, follow the rules.]

Named for the extraordinary color the buds take on during flowering—a treat for growers in itself—Northern Lights is the kind of famous strain that provides both name recognition and an exceptional, stoney body high for your arsenal.

Best of all, as a strain, Northern Lights is about as straightforward and easy to grow as it gets. This plant is compact and resists trouble from disease and pests. It will flower with less light, usually in about 7 to 9 weeks is ideal. You will love the psychedelic looks of these nugs and frosty trichomes!

White Widow

White Widow is going to be on just about any list like this that’s worth anything, because it is a world champion resin producer, hands down. It’s also a fantastically stable, resilient strain, and a delightful smoke

This indica-dominant hybrid was born on the Amsterdam coffee-shop circuit decades ago after Dutch breeders crossed two landrace strains: a South Indian Indica with a South American Sativa. The result was the fat, resinous buds that White Widow is now famous for. With a THC content of up to 25%, there’s a reason people are after that crystallized resin.

Now, as to yield: it’s a winner. Indoors in a flowering time of just 8 to 9 weeks, White Widow can yield up to 18 ounces per square meter. You’ll be surprised that the taste of White Widow leans toward the earthy when you see how sugar frosted these buds look.

White Widow thrives just about anywhere, but although it resists pests and mold, it will produce the highest, most stable yields inside. Not a total knockout, most users report they can consume White Widow any time of day and remain productive, avoiding couchlock.

If you do any research on medical marijuana strains you’ll find White Widow is sought after for menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, migraines, and other top complaints. It’s also a social, chilled experience for recreational users, making it a popular choice among consumers.

Tips for Boosting Yields

The best thing you can do to boost your yield? Select the best high-yield strains like these. You get off to the best start with the best genetics, and not all cultivars are created equal.

Still, there are best practices for higher yields, and following them can help. Here is a quick list of tips and tricks to boost your harvest:

Growing medium

Hydroponic or soil? For the maximum yield, hydroponic growing is optimal, although the skill set can be daunting and the startup costs can be high. Composing your own organic soil medium is the excellent alternative for increasing yields, because it enables you to boost growth by controlling the ratios of coco, perlite, soil, and other mediums.

Lighting

Space high intensity lights evenly to maximize coverage and create the right environment for growing. Maintain sufficient light during the veg stage, and then increase light intensity during flowering to raise overall yields.

Container size

As plant roots outgrow their containers, it gets too difficult for them to effectively take in the nutrients and water they need. As your plants grow, be sure you’re increasing your pot size, too.

Nutrients

Your choice of nutrients can maximize cannabis yields, as well. Time the process so your plants get the right nutrients at the right time; so-called “all-in-one” solutions are never ideal. Instead, focus on a fertilizer at the veg stage. Typically, a balanced NPK mix of NPK works well.

Training techniques

Fimming, pruning, super cropping, and topping are all training techniques that help expose bud sites to maximum light with minimal stress. Proper support of your plants’ stalks with stakes or trellises can also help develop bigger, stronger buds.

Harvest timing

Harvesting too soon can mean losing as much as one-quarter of your hard-fought crop. That’s because the final few weeks of the growing cycle is when those buds really do the most work. For the highest yields, be patient, watch for all of the signs, and check the proper harvest time for the strain.

Final Thoughts

We hope this list of best strains to grow in 2020 has been useful to you. The strains on this list are all easy to grow and very high yielders. In some cases you might need some minimal staking or pruning (which we told you about), but this is a minimum effort, maximum output list.

As you make your choices on what to grow in 2020, keep in mind that experience and skill affects yields when growing any crops of any sort. So do practical considerations like space, growing medium, light, and even things like local laws and regulations.

But if you’re going to grow, it just makes sense to invest in a strain that you know will deliver high yields—no matter whether you’re selling, sharing, or consuming your harvest all yourself. Enjoy your growing and harvesting.

Brilliant site. Love all the information provided. Set out so its easy to navigate through, all relevant info.
Great job.

Thanks Paul I appreciate the kind words. Have a great day.

love it… great job

Thanks Raymond have a good one 🙂

If the stats are real I only ask one question that seems to get the wishy wash answers or a flat out lie,HOW LONG DOES A PLANT THAT GETS OVER 2 LBS AT FINISH HAVE TO VEG BEFORE IT FLOWERS?Myself,I have grown my share and to get a plant to 4-5lbs in one growing season few months seems an impossible task.The revegged method seems to throw a lot of limbs and if u are good at training,have support around and all over it,then maybe I could see a plant grown inside started in feb or march and finishing in Nov being a couple lbs but hearing of 10lb tree of blue dream or seeing some of the trees people grow I just have that one simple question..and cannot get a strait answer most times.A 55 day flower is great but it must have grown for quite some time to get enough size to have an enormous amount of bud in 55 days after veg and being put outside in june,or 12/12 in a place with 100sq ft a plant floor space with a 15 ft ceiling

Start with a 6x6x 1ft deep pot(8x8x1ft is even better but its a pain come harvest) feed your baby(that you started indoors in feb/march) well and on time, top when ready and strip out all the larfy bud about halfway thru flower and THEN you will start to see 5+lb plants. Good luck

High!
I think Big Bud is the highest yielding strain.
One more note to you, this is the Incredible Bulk from Dr. Krippling.
It might not get a medal position, but in many ways better than the other strain. It is a high-yielding and large-sized plant, tolerant of all pests and although blooming late, produces an explosive miracle. Avoids pollination by wild and industrial hemp. It has great hybrid properties. Hassle-free, but thanks to high calcium and magnesium supply.

LOOKS LIKE OKLAHOMA HAS NEVER HAD GOOD GENETICS BEFORE

Ohhh Oklahomans have and had good genetics but our weather changes more than a female tryna impress at the club… So with humidity it’s a struggle and dense buds can get “bud rot” so I prefer to create and work on strains that can thrive here … we’re not even 2 yrs into legalization

One of best and informative sites with great information and easy to navigate site
Great job man

Very informative with a good choice of high yielding strains. I live in a very wet region in the pnw, and I’m leaning towards super skunk for a both inside and outside grows. I can’t wait to try it out and see what happens. Who wants a bunch of bud if it’s not high quality so super skunk sounds good to me.

Wheres THC Bomb?

Somewhere making lower yields and quality than Cluster Bomb.

Are these estimated yields by experienced grower? Or is that a minimum and maximum.. seems to me little high numbers. I’ve gotten 1.1lbs off my white widows outdoor last season but I’ve yet to see kilos off singular plant.

It’s all estimated amounts. A lot of us can really wring the weight out with the right seasonal conditions. That 4-5lb per plant mark is in areas perfect for growing and of course outdoors. I get the about 1.5 from a single WW indoors but I control it’s whole environment and I have limited space. My best yielder was a 4 plant run in 4×4. Seedsman Big Nugs Fast. I vegged and trained vigorously for 6 weeks and she banged it out it 7 weeks bloom (including transistion). Final weigh -in DRY was 2.96 lb (7 gallon Final size air pots, remo nutes DTW (30%+ runoff fed daily, FloraKleen Flush bi-weekly) 65% coco/ 30% Perlite/5% Basalt, CO²) and Bigs Nugs is just their variety of big bud when you look at the genetics. (I’m not plugging seedman at all because it’s all pirated genetics. But they are good genetics. Alaskan Purple is a beast outdoors and it’s almost never in stock in the late winter and through spring for this reason. A couple missing here are: Julie’s Cookies from Dr. Krippling,(she produces some big ass colas), The right Pheno of Super Lemon Haze from Greenhouse can seriously produce. (I’ve personally seen 3lbs from 4×4 consistently from a friends clones) TH Seeds Heavy Duty Fruity is another that will break 600 g/m² with the right care although she is a bit more finicky on her nutes that the last two.

I like to learn more, would you be willing to coach? We can discuss more. Please let me know. Thanks!
