LSD Weed Strain Growing Tips

Growing the LSD cannabis strain can be a challenging but satisfying venture. This resilient strain is resistant to common molds and diseases, making it a good choice for both indoor and outdoor cultivation, especially in sunny, Mediterranean-like climates.

The LSD strain is visually appealing with its high THC content evident in its trichome-covered buds. Its indica-dominant genetics result in dense, chunky buds that are hard to resist.

Be prepared for the strong aroma of this strain by using carbon filters, but it’s well worth it for the high quality and quantity of product you'll get from it. To maximize LSD’s yield potential, consider using the SCROG method.

Flowering and Harvesting Timeline

If you're growing LSD indoors, get ready to be picking those buds in just 60-65 days of flowering time. For outdoor growers, you can start planning your early October harvesting party.


LSD is a real overachiever in the weed world, pumping out a ton of bud with each harvest. When grown indoors, this strain can crank out a whopping 700g per square meter (2.3 oz/ft2), and outdoors it can spit out 600-750g (21-26.5 oz) per plant, if you give it the perfect setup.
