Tips for Growing Lavender Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and Botanicare are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: To create Lavender, Soma Seeds combined genetics from Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, and Afghan Hawaiian. A celebrated medicinal strain, Lavender offers wonderful aromatherapy qualities that pair with its peaceful, introspective high. Lavender’s soothing, calming effects are often used to abate pain and anxiety.

Grow Techniques: This strain can be grown a number of ways, but soil is where it truly thrives. To keep the plants from growing too tall, keep its vegetative cycle short. You can also top and train the plants to increase side growth.

Flowering Time: 9 to 10 weeks

Yield: Moderate to high

Grow Difficulty: Easy

Climate: This strain can handle colder temperatures, but demands an arid climate. Ideally, keep Lavender in temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: With the right climate, Lavender can be grown indoors or out.

Feeding: Basic feeding should keep this strain happy. Compost tea and top dressing the soil with bat guano and worm castings will keep the plants thriving throughout the season.
