Here’s where it gets a little tricky. Sure, you can head down to your local grow store (more on that in a future article) or even online and stock up on lights, fans, and a grow tent… but what about the plants themselves?
If you’re dedicated to growing outdoors during the warmer months, we can help with that, too. Plan to find a space that is more discreet than where you keep your prize rose bushes.
At the moment, there is no legal way to purchase seeds or starters in Massachusetts. Neither state-licensed cannabis retailers nor anyone else can legally sell them. Under state law, however, gifting is allowed. So if you know someone who is already growing, perhaps you can persuade them to clip you off a clone.
Where Can You Grow?
If you’re all about concentrates, there are plenty of other options to explore. Try making hash by hand, pressing rosin, or even whipping up a batch of bubble hash.
Are you an adult 21 and over? You can grow up to six plants in your home. Married? Living in sin? Got a couple roommates? A household that consists of more than one 21+ adult is allowed to grow up to 12 plants. But that’s it! No more, regardless of how many grad students you can stuff in an old Victorian.
Whether indoors or out, your grow space needs to be protected with a lock or some sort of security device. Also, you need to keep your plants out of sight. State law says plants may not be visible from a public place without the use of “binoculars, aircraft or other optical aids.”
If you own your home, you’re good. For those who rent, keep in mind that landlords can set their own policies and may legally restrict cannabis cultivation. Check your lease to see if anything is written, and if you’re unsure, ask your landlord.
Whatever your reasons are, Massachusetts state laws allow you to take things into your own hands when it comes to marijuana — green thumb included.
Maybe it’s the convenience of having it in the house, or perhaps you like to do things yourself.
People over the age of 21 can grow up to six marijuana plants in their homes (with a maximum of 12 plants per household), so long as they are kept in a locked location and out of public view.
If you want to grow good weed, you'll have to work for it.

If you’re thinking about growing your own marijuana, there’s plenty to know — where to get seeds, the equipment needed, and, of course, what to keep in mind when tending to your crop.
Critical, which also made it into our Top 5 Strains For Colder Climates, is a vigorous and rapid-flowering indica that deserves to be featured in every cannabis ranking that exists. However, crossing Critical with the notorious OG Kush took potency to a whole new level.
But make no mistake, Speedy Chile is a photoperiod strain that flowers depending on the amount of available light hours per day. One could say that fast flowering strains are the next breeding evolution after autoflowering genetics: These strains produce high THC levels while maintaining an incredibly short total crop time.
3. CRITICAL KUSH
Besides its short flowering period and amazing flavour, Honey Cream convinces with a solid indica background composed of BlueBlack (Blueberry x Black Domina), Maple Leaf Indica (100% Afghan indica), and White Rhino. These three strains give Honey Cream FF an indica-dominant genetic profile, but there’s also a decent amount of sativa potency from White Widow, the predecessor of White Rhino. When things go well, plants reach outdoor heights of 180–250cm and yield up to 675g/plant.
With the selections on this list, you can avoid unnecessary trouble with rain and frost in October and November. While other growers are busy inspecting their developing buds for mould, you’ll be drying and curing your harvest and filling up your jars. If you missed out on our top 5 strains for colder and warmer climates, feel free to give those a look as well!
Honey Cream Fast Flowering is one of our recently updated favourites. This variety is very popular in Spain due to its sweet, creamy aroma, but you can grow it virtually anywhere in Europe.
Growing cannabis outdoors is extremely rewarding, if mostly for the large yields and low cost of operation. Many of Royal Queen Seeds’ varieties take very well to the outdoors, thriving under the natural sunlight. That said, when it comes to outdoor growing, the strain you choose can make all the difference between success or failure. For that reason, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 outdoor strains—cultivars that are ready to harvest by late September.
