Short Strains: Learn About Your Little Friends

Last updated: 3 November 2021

Short cannabis strains

Sometimes, you don’t have a spacious area to grow huge bushes. That can become a problem quickly. After all, cannabis ‘grows like a weed!’ If you’re looking for something a little more compact in size, try picking up some of these short strains! Learn everything you need to know about potent shorties here!

What Makes it a Short Strain?

A short strain is, of course, shorter in size than other strains of cannabis. These little guys tend to fan out, becoming bushy pretty easily. They can be conveniently grown in a closet or on a balcony. Many of these strains are also very tolerant to being grown indoors or outdoors, meaning they can be cultivated just about anywhere. If you’re looking for something small and strong, you’ll want to find a short strain. They come in a variety of flavors and potencies, so you have plenty of options to choose from!
