GSC is one of California’s most popular strains due to her potency and her classic effect. She is perfect for anyone who’s after a full-body high that leaks nicely into the mind. This strain is ideal for just lounging around like a squishy comfortable lump with snacks and a nice film. Girl Scout Cookies is also known for its visual aspects. The plants turn a lovely dark green with hints of purple and bright orange hairs. The THC level is usually around 18 – 25% with a low CBD level of 0 – 1%. She also produces incredible yields and can get up to 600g/m2 if she is treated well. Again this is a perfect strain for hydroponic growers as she is robust and capable of just doing her thing.
This strain is a combination of Indica and Sativa but is clearly Sativa dominant. She is usually recommended for commercial growers due to her amazing yields and thick, robust buds. She is also known for her high THC content of 19 – 20%. The fact that she is potent and high yielding makes her a great choice for those who are just starting out with hydroponic growing. Her effect is relaxing and calm with a lovely uplifting hit of cerebral happiness. She is often recommended to those suffering from lack of appetite, pain, stress and fatigue. For non-medicinal users she makes the perfect chill-out strain. Run a bubble bath, have a smoke and just let the many stresses of the world melt away. She was born from a combination of Blueberry and Super Silver Haze, which explains here excellent genes. She has also held on to the lovely fruity scent and flavour of the Blueberry parent.

She is a mix of Skunk#1, Haze and Northern Lights #5. Jack Herer’s effect is extremely euphoric and uplifting, perfect for those of us who are struggling with depression or are generally bummed out by the state of the world. She is Sativa dominant and has an impressive THC content of 20%. Jack Herer has won the High Times Cannabis Cup a number of times, and for good reason.

This little lady is another genetic masterpiece perfect for hydroponic growing. She is a combination of Skunk#1 and Afghani, two of the original cannabis strains. Green Crack is a vigorous, high-quality strain that produces impressive yields of powerful buds. Her aroma is a mix of tropical fruit and her flavour is mouth-wateringly sweet with a hint of spice. This is another Sativa dominant strain and her effect is classic Sativa. She is uplifting, euphoric, cerebral, and stimulating. This makes her the ideal strain for creative types or for socialising. Green Crack also came 3rd in the 2011 Treating Yourself Expo Compassion Clubs Cup. She will thrive in a well set up hydroponic system and will usually take around 55 days to flower.
SFV OG Kush is a multi-award winning mega strain that promises fantastic yields from uniform plants. Her awards include 3rd Place Indica at the High Times Amsterdam Awards and 1st Place at the High Times Medical Cup in Denver, both in 2012. This strain does well when she is given a little more time in her harvest. Her plants are known for being easy for new growers due to their uniform nature. They also need very little love and attention to create large yields of top-quality buds. The flavour and scent of the buds are a mix of spice, herbs and lemon. Lineage wise she is a combination of San Fernando Valley OG and Afghani #1. This means that she is a pretty balanced combination of Sativa and Indica. The resulting effect is pleasantly relaxing with a happy little kick. Ideal for chilling and watching a film or just reading in bed.
Deep water culture offers some serious benefits when compared to growing in soil. But not all strains react the same to this method. Try out these 5 cultivars for the best results!
Giant White Haze was born out of an ambitious breeding project involving legendary parent strains Haze and White Widow. This merging was a great success, and the progeny inherited the best traits of both parents. She’s equipped with an invigorating sativa high that sparks creative thoughts and helps the mind to hone in on a single task for long periods. Giant White Haze also offers therapeutic effects to medicinal users in terms of boosting appetite and decreasing anxiety. These effects are augmented by a terpene profile that generates tastes of earth and pine.
Gorilla Glue is a great choice for DWC is you’re seeking potency. This lady will grow to a height of 90–150cm indoors and yield up to 560g/m² after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks.
DWC is favoured by many cultivators because it’s very low maintenance and can easily be automated using timers, meaning it can be left alone for extended periods without intervention. Plants can also grow extremely large considering a large reservoir is provided. Nutrients are delivered directly to the roots, allowing strains to grow up to several centimetres per day in some cases.
DWC also removes the need to abide by a watering routine. The roots are permanently submerged—free to uptake as much water as they require. Practically any cannabis strain can be used in a DWC grow. However, some varieties are much better suited to this cultivation setup than others. Despite all the benefits of DWC, the lack of soil means there’s nothing to buffer the nutrients, and thus pH fluctuations are more common. As such, strains that can withstand a little bit of “turbulence” are best suited for this method. Check out the 5 best strains to use for DWC below!
