Lowryder is an autoflowering cannabis strain that is known for its compact size, quick flowering time, and ease of cultivation. It is a hybrid strain that was specifically bred to have unique characteristics that make it suitable for indoor and outdoor growing, especially in limited spaces.
The origins of Lowryder can be traced back to the crossing of various cannabis strains, including Northern Lights #2, William’s Wonder, and a ruderalis strain. Ruderalis is a type of cannabis that naturally flowers based on age rather than changes in light cycles, allowing Lowryder to exhibit autoflowering traits.
One of the key features of Lowryder is its short stature, typically reaching a height of around 30 to 60 centimeters (12 to 24 inches) at maturity. This compact size makes it ideal for indoor growing or stealthy outdoor cultivation. It also allows for discreet cultivation in small spaces or areas with height restrictions.
Another characteristic that sets Lowryder apart is its autoflowering capability. Unlike photoperiod strains that require specific light schedules to initiate flowering, Lowryder automatically transitions from the vegetative stage to the flowering stage based on its age. This means that it will start flowering after a certain number of weeks, regardless of the light cycle. Typically, Lowryder completes its entire life cycle, from seed to harvest, in a short period of 8 to 9 weeks.
Due to its ruderalis genetics, Lowryder plants are known for their resilience and ability to withstand harsh conditions. They have adapted to grow in northern climates with shorter summers, making them suitable for outdoor cultivation in colder regions.
In terms of its effects, Lowryder tends to produce a balanced high that combines relaxation with a gentle cerebral uplift. The THC levels of Lowryder can vary, but they generally range from moderate to high, providing a satisfying experience for recreational users.
Cultivating Lowryder is relatively straightforward, making it a popular choice for beginners or those looking for a hassle-free growing experience. Its compact size allows for easy management and discreet cultivation. Since Lowryder is an autoflowering strain, it does not require adjustments to the light cycle, simplifying the cultivation process. However, providing adequate lighting, nutrients, and proper care is still essential to achieve optimal yields and quality.
