Fastest Autoflowering Cannabis
Automatic flowering varieties are the easiest to grow, resistant, adaptable, strong and especially fast. Some stand out for their large production, others contain a good aroma and taste, some are quite powerful, but in this post we will review the autoflowering genetics with a faster cycle. Are you in? Let’s have a look at them…
🎯 What are the fastest growing Autoflowering varieties?
Autoflowering plants don’t rely on light or dark hours to grow and flower like photo-dependent cannabis plants. Auto strains begin flowering once they reach sexual maturity, and it may come 3 or 4 weeks after germination.
The fastest autoflowering plants are those that bloom with only 20 days of growth. The problem with these plants is that they do not have time to reach a good size before they start to flower, so they are quite small.
👾 Fastest automatic seeds on the market
The first 100% autoflowering commercial varieties were Lowryder, which take just 60 days from seed to harvest. They are undoubtedly the fastest autoflowering cannabis plants in history.
From the Lowryder came the Lowryder#2, which needed a few more days to complete its cycle, but it is of higher quality. The vast majority of autoflowering strains nowadays come from crosses with Lowryder#2, and have a total growing cycle of 65 or 70 days or more
The Lowryder 2 is the fastest, most compact and discreet variety from cannabic current panorama, ideal for growing in confined spaces . Its exquisite aroma, its power and its high resin production are some of the features that have made it world famous…
Among the descendants of the Lowryder, the fastest autoflowering varieties can be Grass-O-Matic’s AutoMass and Dinafem’s Critical Auto. These were two of the first autoflowering versions on the market and, although they were very fast, their quality was still not comparable to the current ones.
Don’t rely too much on people telling you that you can harvest a cannabis plant in less than 50 days from germination, because it’s impossible for it to be ripe or to have reached a good size.
🧐 Faster and more productive autoflowering seeds
These are the really interesting ones, the ones that offer a great balance between speed and performance. The automatic genetics that take the least time to produce a large crop usually have a whole culture cycle of 70 to 75 days, and among them the following stand out:
Black Mamba Autoflowering from PEV Seeds has all the qualities you would expect from an autoflowering plant. Speed, resistance, power, production and great taste …
💻 How to make an autoflowering variety faster?
The ideal is not to force the plants during cultivation, but if you need to have weed as soon as possible there are some tricks you can use. However, you have to understand that a large harvest cannot be achieved in a short time, so you have to sacrifice production if you want to save time in growing.
One way to speed up the pace of cultivation is to plant the autoflowering seed in a small pot. When the roots realize that they do not have enough substrate they anticipate their flowering in order to be able to finish the cycle with the available nutrients.
If you want to be able to harvest a little earlier for some reason, you also have products like GHE’s Ripen, which speeds up ripening by a few days in both auto and regular cannabis varieties.
The fastest autoflowering cannabis plants are not the most interesting, except if for some reason you need to speed up cultivation. Nowadays there are automatic strains that need 1 or 2 more weeks of cycle, but they compensate with much more production, so they are much more profitable.

The Five Shortest Autoflower Strains – A Fast Buds Guide
Bigger is not always better. A supersized sativa may look great in photos, but what do you do when it starts to outgrow its tent? Get a bigger tent? Well, then how do you discreetly place that in your home? Nobody wants law enforcement banging their door down because their pot plant was too big to hide.
If you value stealth growing or just have limited space, autoflowering cannabis seeds can provide you with smooth, potent, and bountiful flowers that won’t outgrow their home. Instead of growing like trees, these strains grow like squat bushes packed with dense buds. Sometimes refered to as dwarf cannabis, modern autoflowers offer staggering yields and award-winning, high-THC buds withing 10-weeks of planting. With that in mind, let’s kick off our list at number 5!
For each strain, we’ve included a link to a grow report/grow diary that illustrates one way (of many) to successfully grow each variety. Check them out for grow tips.
5. Green Crack
Who wants to get hyped! No strain provides a rush like Green Crack (sometimes called Green Crush). The original version of this legendary strain comes in both Sativa-dominant and Indica-dominant varieties. Fast Buds’ Autoflowering version is an almost perfect 50/50 hybrid that gives the rush of a sativa, while the indica relaxation eliminates paranoia and nervousness.
Topping out at 35 inches, or 88 centimeters, Green Crack still offers massive yields, as you can see from the picture above. Green Crack offers a smooth, balanced experience, and fits nicely in a closet or space bucket (a kind of stealth grow box).
Bred with indoor stealth grows in mind, Grapefruit is dorm-room closet ganja par excellence. Reaching a modest 35-inches, or 90 centimeters, this strain offers a fruity, limonene-rich aroma unlike any strain you’ve tried before.
The well-balanced high pairs perfectly with it’s easy-to-hide frame. If you’re short on space and can only grow one strain at a time, Grapefruit is the perfect jack-of-all-trades.
3. CBD Crack
CBD Crack is Green Crack’s more serious cousin. Sporting a 1:1 CBD to THC-ratio, this cannabadiol-rich strain not only grows short, it’s Fast Buds’ most versatile strain.
If high-THC weed (especially Sativas) makes you nervous or paranoid, this strain’s 1:1 CBD to THC offers a smooth, euphoric alternative. CBD regulates the receptors in the brain that THC triggers (CB1 and CB2 for the nerds among us), preventing run-away anxiety from taking hold and allowing even the most cannabis averse to enjoy a euphoric buzz that won’t leave you couch-locked, speedy, or nervous. This doesn’t even begin to address the other marvelous things CBD has to offer. As Fast Buds’ Master Grower Tripaholic put it, “I can recommend this strain for people suffering from anxiety. I suffer from it, and I’ll take a dab when I have an anxiety attack, and it just melts away in about 1-3 minutes. CBD is truly a blessing.”
If there were a cannabis strain hall of fame, Blueberry would be inducted in the first round. This fruity strain has been a staple of the Cali MMJ scene since the 90s, and even recreational users love the effects. Our autoflowering version, Fastberry packs all the famed effects of the original onto a stout 30-inch or 77-centimeter frame. It’s also one of our fastest growers, sometimes reaching full maturity within eight weeks.
1. Rhino Ryder
Rhino Ryder is truly special. A Fast Buds’ original, we took strains from the popular Medicine Man/White Rhino lineage and crossed them with our autoflowers to create our shortest strain that packs buds with a punch. Once again, Tripaholic describes it perfectly, “[Rhino Rider’s] high is at first a nice cerebral hit to the head resulting in an instant mood uplift that has you giggly and lasts for about 30-40 mins then slowly the body gets it until you are in an almost narcotic daze. Perfect for aches and pains.”
Technically, Rhino Rider and Fastberry tie for our shortest strain. While Rhino Ryder can, and usually does, grow shorter, its max height is just a few centimeters taller than Fasterberry’s. Both strains come from amazing lines and are perfect for the stealth grower in need of weed with a kick.
If none of these strains are quite what you’re looking for, you can always check out our full catalog and our All About Autoflower guides. Still doesn’t solve your space problem? If you can only grow a lmited number of plants, be sure to take a look at our guide on long-term seed storage. Even the tallest of our autoflowers, the perennial favorite Tangie’Matic, grow stout relative to their photoperiod cousins.
