Top 5 High-THC Autoflowering Strains (2020 Update)

Autoflowering strains suck when it comes to potency, right? Wrong. At RQS, we’re proud to announce a whole new line of autoflowers that’ll put even some of the most potent photoperiod strains to shame.

For a long time, autoflowering strains have been criticised for producing lower levels of THC than photoperiod varieties. But with our new line of autoflowers, that’s all changed. Below, we shine a light on our fresh roster of super potent autoflowering cannabis strains.


We get this question a lot, and the answer is yes; autoflowering strains are definitely worth it. They are super easy to grow and can produce some spectacular bud, especially if you plant them in big pots under strong lights.

Plus, the fact that autoflowers don’t need to be pruned or trained makes them ideal for beginner growers. Their short stature allows them to fit into small indoor grow rooms or stealthy outdoor grows, and their short flowering time means you can typically pump out multiple harvests throughout the year.


And now, thanks to our new line of genetics, autoflowering strains can finally stand up to their photoperiod competitors in terms of potency. The strains listed below are capable of producing up to 24% THC!


In 2018, Gelato was named “Strain of The Year”. Green Gelato Automatic is our very own unique autoflowering version of this beloved hybrid. This is one of our most aromatic strains, and it produces massive levels of THC that’ll give even a top-shelf Haze a good run for its money.

Green Gelato Automatic boasts everything you love about our photoperiod Green Gelato strain in a neat autoflowering package. Like the original strain, Green Gelato Auto boasts balanced effects that combine a relaxing, physical stone with cerebral euphoria.

This strain is first on our list for a reason; Green Gelato Automatic can produce up to 24% THC, making her one of the most potent autoflowers on the market. You’ll only need a few hits to feel her powerful effects.

Many find Green Gelato Auto to be a great strain for creative exploits. Consider giving her a try while painting, writing, or composing music, or while socialising with friends at parties.

Green Gelato Auto is an absolute fiesta when it comes to flavour and aroma. On the nose, she’s fruity and citrusy, while boasting super sweet, slightly earthy flavours. Green Gelato Auto is also super easy to grow. She reaches a maximum height of 120cm and is typically ready to harvest 70 days from germination.

Amnesia Haze Automatic brings autoflowering properties to this classical sativa variety. Featuring 50% sativa, 20% indica, and 30% ruderalis genetics, this strain has been finely tuned for your growing and smoking pleasure.

Every smoker loves a packed bowl of sativa when a task needs doing, or when they feel their creative side emerging. The downside of some sativa varieties is the length of time it takes them to mature.

Although some growers might have the patience and resources to see a photoperiod sativa through to harvest, others grow under more restrictions. For these people, they will be pleased to realise that Amnesia Haze Automatic explodes from seed to harvest in as little as 10 weeks!

So, aside from its lightning-fast growing speed, what else can Amnesia Haze Automatic bring to the smoker and grower? Well, when harvest time arrives, you will be greeted by resinous buds that contain 18% THC. That is some pretty strong bud. Amnesia Haze Automatic flowers also contain decent amounts of CBD.

If you grow indoors, you can expect your plants to reach a height of 100cm and produce a yield of around 350–400g/m². If you live in a warm and sunny climate and decide to plant your green babies outdoors, you can expect them to reach a height of 120cm and kick out a yield of approximately 180g/plant when dried.

When smoking your Amnesia Haze Automatic harvest, you will experience a mixture of sweet and spicy taste sensations, accompanied by the classical taste of Amnesia strains. This will be complemented by a cerebral, uplifting, and motivating psychoactive high.

Fat Banana is a super aromatic RQS strain that produces big, dense, and resinous buds. Fat Banana Automatic is her autoflowering cousin. Indica-dominant, fast-flowering, and capable of producing up to 22% THC, Fat Banana Automatic has to be one of the most potent autoflowers available today.

Like the original, Fat Banana Automatic produces a hard-hitting body stone. She’s best enjoyed in the evening while watching a movie, listening to your favourite record, or just before bed. Don’t be fooled into using this strain during the day, as it’ll likely affect your ability to focus.

In terms of flavour and aroma, Fat Banana Automatic is very similar to the photoperiod original. She boasts a big, tropical fruit aroma with bold notes of banana and hints of mango. When smoked or vaped, Fat Banana Automatic is very sweet and smooth, making it hard to put her down.

Thanks to her short flowering time and short stature, Fat Banana Automatic is super easy to grow. She takes just 9–10 weeks to go from seed to harvest and reaches a height of just 100–120cm. Despite its size, this strain is still able to produce heavy harvests of up to 450g/m² indoors and 175g/plant outdoors.

The word “gorilla” in a strain is a mark of its potency. The pummelling power of a gorilla is certainly the only comparison that comes to mind for our Royal Gorilla Automatic. This autoflowering version of Royal Gorilla incorporates qualities of ruderalis, sativa, and indica.

While skewing mostly toward indica, there will also be a cerebral head high to look forward to. Plus, it will be ready for plucking only 8–10 weeks after germination. This strain is also adaptable to both indoor and outdoor cultivation. The resulting bud won’t disappoint with its THC content of over 20%.

This strain will bring on a wave of happy feelings, with a head high that gives way to couch-lock. This sensational journey also comes with a rich array of flavours. The diesel edge to this plant’s aroma is complemented by traces of pine, citrus, and forest fruits. Royal Gorilla Automatic has to be among the most satisfying of our autoflowering cultivars.

Hulkberry Automatic is our very own autoflowering version of the award-winning sativa Bruce Banner #3. We started by crossing Ghost OG with Strawberry Diesel to create a strain with the potency and unique terpene profile to match the original. We then crossed the result with Auto Ghost OG to pass on the autoflowering gene without driving down potency. The progeny is Hulkberry Automatic, a super aromatic and potent autoflower (she boasts up to 21% THC) that produces an exceptional creative high.

This strain produces strong, uplifting, and alerting cerebral effects. It’s a great daytime smoke as it won’t hinder your productivity or focus, and it goes particularly well with any kind of creative activity (like painting or writing). Like Green Gelato, this is also a great social smoke to share with friends.

Besides its uplifting high, Hulkberry Automatic also boasts exceptional aromas and flavours. On the nose, this strain smells of fresh, sweet strawberries reminiscent of Strawberry Diesel. When smoked or vaped, however, Hulkberry Automatic is spicy and earthy, with unique woody undertones. This strain is particularly high in the terpenes limonene, linalool, and myrcene.

Finally, like any good autoflower, Hulkberry Automatic is super easy to grow. She reaches a height of about 100cm and is completely harvest-ready in 65–70 days, producing decent harvests of 450g/m² indoors and up to 100g/plant outdoors.

Top 5 Autoflowering Sativa Cannabis Strains

Cannabis sativa is associated with energy, creativity and daytime functionality. It can be smoked throughout the day without overdoing things and ending up asleep on the couch. For those with green fingers, autoflowering strains are easy to grow.

Almost everybody who enjoys cannabis is aware of what kind of strain gives them their preferred kind of high. With a booming cannabis industry in some parts of the world, and breeding innovation and perfection reaching new heights, there is a huge plethora of tastes, smells and sensations available to all. The two main distinctions in what kind of high a smoker is going to experience is whether they are choosing to burn either indica or sativa weed.

Of these two main subspecies, sativas are known for their stimulating nature, buzzy high and feelings of positivity and energy. In comparison to indica, sativa plants are a lot taller and therefore suited well to outdoor growth. They develop leaves with slender and long fingers and grow large and bushy.

A rather less well known third species, Cannabis ruderalis, has been bred with sativa strains to create autoflowering sativa plants, with autoflowering being a genetic trait found within Cannabis ruderalis. Autoflowering is a desirable characteristic among growers, removing the need to alter the photoperiod to force a plant into flower, ultimately making the plants easier to grow.

This combination of genetics offers growers the opportunity to cultivate a wide range of sativa strains with ease. Here are the top 5 autoflowering sativa strains available today.
