Tips for Growing King Louis XIII 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: King Louis XIII is thought to be a unique cut of OG Kush as they share many similar attributes. The buds offer a classic earthy Kush aroma, and the light green buds are dense and resin-packed. This indica-dominant strain is cherished for its relaxing effects that segue nicely into sleep.

Grow Techniques: King Louis XIII flourishes indoors in a hydroponic setup. Utilize a SOG (sea of green) or SCROG (screen of green) method with clones to fill your space. Train the plants and switch to flowering early to keep a continual rotation in your garden.

Flowering Time: 8 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: If kept in a consistent climate, this strain will thrive and produce beautiful, dense buds. King Louis XIII prefers temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tips for Growing God Bud Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and General Hydroponics 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: A longtime favorite from British Columbia, God Bud was bred by Jordan of the Islands, who mixed a Canadian strain known as “God” with Purple Skunk and Hawaiian. God Bud is a powerful indica strain that offers potent medicinal properties and a sweet aroma of berry, lavender, and pine.

Grow Techniques: This strain can be grown indoors or outdoors in a hydroponic or soil setup. The plants and buds grow dense, so prune and train them to maintain airflow while using trellising to keep ample space between buds. God Bud’s flowers develop loads of sticky resin, making it a great plant for creating hash.

Flowering Time: 7 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: God Bud can handle colder climates, but be careful of high humidity levels as the buds develop. A drop in temperature can cause the buds to take on purple hues, but this strain prefers temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: God Bud can be grown either indoors or outdoors with success. 

Feeding: This indica strain requires heavier feeding. Keep the plant happy by top dressing with organic nutrients.

New Strains Alert: Pure Love, Serious Happiness, Lennon, and More

Another week among the flowers, another New Strains Alert. This week we’ve added some European genetics hailing from The Netherlands and Spain, as well as two AK-47 crosses and two CBD-dominant crosses.

Wembley and Serious Happiness both lean on AK-47’s unique cerebral effects to add dimension and potency. Serious Happiness combines bright, citrus flavors with Warlock‘s light relaxation to create an award-winning strain that is generous in its yield as well as its potency. Wembley, presumably named for the area in Northwest London, is another AK-47 cross that digs deeper into indica-leaning genetics via a personal favorite, Bubble Gum.
