The brilliance of autoflowering strains is that they flower according to age and not light cycle. This makes them excellent strains for inexperienced cultivators or those wanting an hassle free grow.
Just how potent is a high THC autoflower strain?
Autoflower genetics have been moving fast in recent years, and the improvements in the stability, potency and yield have been enormous. It used to be that most autoflowers were about 10-15% THC but this number has crept up year-on-year and it is not uncommon now to see autos with more than 20% THC. Some of the most potent autoflower strains now contain THC levels of up to 25-30%, which is considerably higher than what was previously thought possible for this variety of cannabis. However, it is worth noting that high THC levels don't always translate to better highs. Factors, such as terpene profiles and the other cannabinoids, also play a key role in the high we experience and science is only just beginning to unlock the truth behind the entourage effect.
How to increase THC in autoflowers?

The fact that you are on this page means you want to grow some damn strong weed! So, let’s have a look at what are the best ways to produce potent bud….
Choose a high-THC autoflower strain: The genetics of the plant play a significant role in determining THC levels. Look for strains that have a high THC content and are known for their resin production.
Harvest at the right time: All cannabis plants have a 2 week window in the later stages of flowering where they are at their most potent. As the buds ripen you should start to inspect them using a jeweler’s loupe or magnifying glass. What you are looking for is the moment when around 50-80% of the trichomes have turned a milky/cloudy color. At this point the trichomes will contain the highest levels of cannabinoids and will be most potent.
Provide optimal growing conditions: Make sure that the plants are getting enough light, nutrients, and water to maximize growth and resin production. Autoflower strains typically have a shorter growth cycle, so it's important to provide them with the right conditions throughout their life cycle.
Use proper lighting: Autoflower strains don't need the typical 18/6 then 12/12 light cycle. The best light cycles for autos offer at least 18 hours of light per day can help to increase resin production, which can lead to higher THC levels.
Use organic nutrients: Using organic nutrients can help to promote a healthy soil microbiome, which can in turn enhance the plant's ability to produce resin and increase THC levels.
