Top 10 outdoor – zativo

Named after the Irish Herbalist, Biddy Early is the crossing of Early Skunk x Warlock. She is the ultimate cannabis strain for outdoor growing, especially if you live in the more northern areas of Europe – in fact, it was originally bred by Gerrit of Magus Genetics specifically for the humid and cold Dutch climate. As such, she boasts an extreme resilience to low temperatures, pests, mould, and disease. It makes her an excellent choice for novices, who want an easy to grow strain, or those living in a similar climate to the Dutch. This isn’t to say that those living in warmer climates should look away, though, as she will really flourish in the warmth. Biddy Early can grow up to 2m high, and produce some serious yields. The bud produced is multi-award winning, inducing a potent and relaxing high with its sweet, yet earthy, smoke.


Biddy Early is also a fast finisher, being ready for harvest towards the end of September. Combine all of this, and you can see why she is the most popular outdoor cannabis strain here at Zativo.

Mr. Nice is a seed bank that prides itself on its unwavering quality and old-school genetics. Super Silver Haze is a perfect example of this, showcasing the award-winning power at their disposal. Super Silver Haze won the 1997, 1998, and 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup, and still remains a firm favourite among veterans to this day. As the name suggests, she is a sativa dominant cannabis strain, inducing an extremely potent, sky-rocketing cerebral high. To be more precise, she is 25% Skunk, 25% Northern Lights, and 50% Haze. Super Silver Haze is a vigorous grower, and can be quite demanding, even when grown outdoors; as such, she is better suited to slightly more experienced growers. But the effort is worth it; Super Silver Haze can produce in excess of 550+g per plant outdoors – and we are talking 550g+ of some real top-shelf stuff. She is a tried and true classic, and the fact she remains just as popular today as she did a decade ago is a testament to her quality. There is no doubt of her deserving a place on this list as one of the best outdoor cannabis strains.

Freeze Cheese 89 is an old-school indica classic that has made a name for itself as a coffeeshop favourite. She is the mix of a Friesland ’89 Indica x Big Buddha Cheese (reversed), combining the best of both into a frosty, dank and elegant plant able to hold its weight against younger modern strains even to this day. As you would expect from a classic indica variety, the effect induced is a hard hitting, heavy stone. The flavour profile combines fresh lemon and pine with more pungent skunky and cheese undertones. It is quite a treat, and one of the reasons she is such a bestseller with our customers. Freeze Cheese ’89 isn’t just about old-school flavours and highs, though. Thanks to the expertise behind her breeding, she is easy to grow and offers a good deal of resilience to mould and pests. As such, she is just as suited to the novice taking their first steps into outdoor growing as she is to the veteran or connoisseur looking for a top-shelf strain for their stash. As she grows, she becomes absolutely coated in frosty resin, making her exceptional for hash production, as well – Big Buddha has even lovingly nicknamed her “the frostmaster.” When grown outdoors, Freeze Cheese ’89 is usually ready by mid-October and offers above-average yields.

Made from the mix of the legendary Trainwreck x Sour Diesel x Thai, Casey Jones is a relatively new strain that has quickly made a name for herself as one of the best outdoor cannabis strains around – winning multiple awards. When grown outdoors, Casey Jones is not afraid to make a statement, growing large and imposing – something those who consider stealth to be an issue should take into account, as Casey won’t make an effort to hide. The plus side is that you can potentially end up gigantic bud as big as your forearm, which is sure to put a smile on your face. In addition to this, Casey Jones is highly resilient to mould – despite the fact she produces a lot of resin – and is very easy to grow; this makes her ideal for novice growers and veterans alike, with novices learning the ropes and veterans achieving insane yields of mind-bending bud. The flavour produced by Casey Jones has a diesel dominance, mixed in with earth undertones and a spicy kick. The high is instantaneous and uplifting, elevating the mind to a happy euphoria while easing the body into a light buzz. Casey Jones is usually ready for harvest towards the end of September, producing extremely abundant yields.
