With the closing of 2021, we at Seedstockers wanted to compile the varieties that have been most popular throughout the year. Our breeders are always try to create special genetics, but it is the public who has the last word and decides which strains are most worthy of legendary status. That’s why we have created this list of top sellers – a guide to the must-haves in your garden.
What makes a variety of marijuana better than another? Taste, resin production, flowering speed, cannabinoid levels… In reality we can’t just look at one or two parameters, but it is the combination of several virtues that makes some strains become the favourite of growers. Normally our team of breeders work hard to create genetics that meet the highest quality in several ways:
Following the aforementioned criteria, our technical team created a list of “Most wanted,” genetics that have been popular throughout 2021. Here’s why these varieties have swept the board.
Critical genetics have for years stationed itself as one of the most cultivated around the world, and few varieties are as complete as it. For this reason, this classic maintains its popularity year after year as one of the primary selections for consumers. When our breeders began the selection process they were clear that they had to give a twist if they wanted to get an improved version of Critical, so they put all their efforts to get create a real monster out of BCN Critical XXL – and they succeeded.
A hybrid born from crossing elite selections of Kritical Bilbo and Critical + which comes directly from the Basque Country. Once the best individual of this crossing was selected, our breeders crossed it with a selection of Critical. The result was the most resistant and productive version of this genetic ever created. A variety that produces huge harvests of very tight buds that emanate an intense citrus aroma with a lemony aftertaste, and with yields like these, there will be enough bud to fill the pantry for a long season.
BCN Critical XXL is one of the multi-awarded of our catalogue, with a fast flowering period of 8 weeks, this variety produces flowers full of resin with a high THC content (about 23%), so it is a variety that you should consume with caution if you are new to cannabis.
In the breeding and creation of this variety we focused on getting particularly huge harvests of very high THC buds (around 22%). This might be why Big Bud has become a best seller, as many consumers find it a quick way route towards obtaining large yields of flowers with a high-flying effect.
This strain was created by crossing elite selections of an Afgani and a skunk variety. One of the great virtues of Big Bud is its great stability, which comes from its Skunk ancestry. This leads Big Bud to produce very uniform crops in each cycle. However, it is necessary to watch out for fungi and diseases that can settle in its tight and dense buds.
For this reason, it is recommended to be careful to maintain proper humidity levels, and not allow them to rise to high during the flowering stage when cultivating indoors.
American flavours have swept the world in recent years due to their intensity and originality, a breath of fresh air for palates that thought they had tried everything. We could not fail to include in our catalogue one of the most representative icons of this wave coming from the West Coast.
Purple Punch is the fruit of the union of two pedigree parents: Grandaddy Purple and Larry OG. The result is a very productive hybrid that expresses purple and bluish tones towards the end of flowering, and has a rich OG flavor, with notes of grape and berries.
The effect of this variety is not the most suitable for novice consumers, as its high THC levels (over 20%), cause a powerful cerebral effect that is accompanied by a very pleasant body relaxation.
Continuing the theme of American varieties, one of the most acclaimed by the public this year was undoubtedly a beast straight from the USA. In this case, we created our Gorilla Glue from a three-way cross between Chem Sister, Sour Dubb and Chocolate Diesel.
The result was a hybrid of great power that has won awards thanks to its incredible production of sticky resin that lives up to its name, “Glue”. It is therefore an ideal genetics for extractions as it guarantees good yields and superior quality.
A very balanced strain with a flowering period of 9 weeks, it develops plants of medium height and is incredibly easy to grow. These attributes, together with the fact that its psychoactivity is very potent, have made it a favourite of growers of all kinds.
A classic among classics, AK420 of Seedstockers is the result of a careful selection of the legendary AK-47; a genetics of Sativa dominance very easy to cultivate which offers an excellent production in a very short time (only 8 weeks).
A variety that develops plants of medium height, which are filled with resinous and compact buds with a penetrating aroma of wood, citrus and spices. One of the great virtues of AK420 is that it is very versatile, so it offers good yields both indoors and outdoors, in temperate climates or in the most extreme.
Its THC levels are medium, and thanks to its profile of terpenes and cannabinoids, this variety produces a psycho activity at first cerebral and fun that then gives way to a very pleasant relaxation. It is the variety that many choose for socializing and have a good time with friends.
Our goal is to produce quality genetics that offer the best results in terms of stability and production. That’s why we take our breeding process very seriously, we don’t want to release something we are not totally satisfied with.
This selection of the bestsellers of 2021 is just a sample of the treasures you will find in our catalogue, from autoflowering strains for those looking for speed, to different types of genetics rich in CBD and CBG.
