Top 10 Autoflowering Strains of 2021
After establishing your favourite autoflowering cannabis strains, you’ve mastered cultivating them over several growing seasons. Do you feel like it’s time for something new? If so, check out our best autoflowering cultivars of 2021. These new-school genetics offer huge levels of THC, branch-bending yields, and mouth-watering terpene profiles.
Autoflowering cannabis strains are renowned for their resilience, speed, and overall ease. These traits make them ideal for beginners, experienced growers seeking an easy stash, and those seeking to optimise turnover.
Autoflowering cultivars are predisposed to flower based on age, as opposed to a change in the light cycle. Most varieties surge from seed to harvest in 8–10 weeks and reach a small to medium height that makes them easy to manage and conceal.
Many growers previously associated autos with low-grade weed, and viewed their speed as a trade-off for potency. However, innovative breeders have created a new wave of strains that boast rapid flowering times alongside THC and CBD levels—not to mention flavours—that rival many photoperiod strains.
Check out the best autoflowering strains to cultivate in 2021 below.
ROYAL GORILLA AUTOMATIC
Not long ago, some growers would turn up their noses at those who chose to grow autoflowers. The reason behind this is that early autos simply couldn’t match the yield, potency, and flavour of photoperiodic strains. Today, no one would dare say anything bad about Royal Gorilla Automatic, a dank auto that is more than deserving of the spotlight. This uber-potent lady from the US West Coast is a cross of Royal Gorilla, Royal Cookies, and ruderalis. She has been finely tuned for exceptional performance, beastly potency, and top resin production. Not to mention, she delivers up to 400g/m² of dense bud indoors—all within a short 8–10 weeks from seed.
Royal Gorilla Automatic boasts an impressive 20% THC, so she can deliver a real knockout punch. She starts you out with a happy, heady euphoria that makes way for an incredibly relaxing couch-lock. Smoke (or vape) the girl, and you will taste Diesel flavours with citrus, pine, and fruity notes.

Top 5 High-THC Autoflowering Strains (2020 Update)
Autoflowering strains suck when it comes to potency, right? Wrong. At RQS, we’re proud to announce a whole new line of autoflowers that’ll put even some of the most potent photoperiod strains to shame.
For a long time, autoflowering strains have been criticised for producing lower levels of THC than photoperiod varieties. But with our new line of autoflowers, that’s all changed. Below, we shine a light on our fresh roster of super potent autoflowering cannabis strains.
ARE AUTOFLOWERING CANNABIS STRAINS WORTH IT?
We get this question a lot, and the answer is yes; autoflowering strains are definitely worth it. They are super easy to grow and can produce some spectacular bud, especially if you plant them in big pots under strong lights.
Plus, the fact that autoflowers don’t need to be pruned or trained makes them ideal for beginner growers. Their short stature allows them to fit into small indoor grow rooms or stealthy outdoor grows, and their short flowering time means you can typically pump out multiple harvests throughout the year.
TOP 5 HIGH-THC AUTOFLOWERS FOR YOUR 2020 GROW-OP
And now, thanks to our new line of genetics, autoflowering strains can finally stand up to their photoperiod competitors in terms of potency. The strains listed below are capable of producing up to 24% THC!
GREEN GELATO AUTO
In 2018, Gelato was named “Strain of The Year”. Green Gelato Automatic is our very own unique autoflowering version of this beloved hybrid. This is one of our most aromatic strains, and it produces massive levels of THC that’ll give even a top-shelf Haze a good run for its money.
Green Gelato Automatic boasts everything you love about our photoperiod Green Gelato strain in a neat autoflowering package. Like the original strain, Green Gelato Auto boasts balanced effects that combine a relaxing, physical stone with cerebral euphoria.
This strain is first on our list for a reason; Green Gelato Automatic can produce up to 24% THC, making her one of the most potent autoflowers on the market. You’ll only need a few hits to feel her powerful effects.
Many find Green Gelato Auto to be a great strain for creative exploits. Consider giving her a try while painting, writing, or composing music, or while socialising with friends at parties.
Green Gelato Auto is an absolute fiesta when it comes to flavour and aroma. On the nose, she’s fruity and citrusy, while boasting super sweet, slightly earthy flavours. Green Gelato Auto is also super easy to grow. She reaches a maximum height of 120cm and is typically ready to harvest 70 days from germination.

AMNESIA HAZE AUTOMATIC
Amnesia Haze Automatic brings autoflowering properties to this classical sativa variety. Featuring 50% sativa, 20% indica, and 30% ruderalis genetics, this strain has been finely tuned for your growing and smoking pleasure.
Every smoker loves a packed bowl of sativa when a task needs doing, or when they feel their creative side emerging. The downside of some sativa varieties is the length of time it takes them to mature.
Although some growers might have the patience and resources to see a photoperiod sativa through to harvest, others grow under more restrictions. For these people, they will be pleased to realise that Amnesia Haze Automatic explodes from seed to harvest in as little as 10 weeks!
So, aside from its lightning-fast growing speed, what else can Amnesia Haze Automatic bring to the smoker and grower? Well, when harvest time arrives, you will be greeted by resinous buds that contain 18% THC. That is some pretty strong bud. Amnesia Haze Automatic flowers also contain decent amounts of CBD.
If you grow indoors, you can expect your plants to reach a height of 100cm and produce a yield of around 350–400g/m². If you live in a warm and sunny climate and decide to plant your green babies outdoors, you can expect them to reach a height of 120cm and kick out a yield of approximately 180g/plant when dried.
When smoking your Amnesia Haze Automatic harvest, you will experience a mixture of sweet and spicy taste sensations, accompanied by the classical taste of Amnesia strains. This will be complemented by a cerebral, uplifting, and motivating psychoactive high.
Autoflowering strains have long been criticised for their potency. But things have changed. Here are 5 of the most potent autos on the market.
