world’s largest marijuana plant

‘Largest ever’ cannabis plant found in Weston garden

THE LARGEST cannabis plant ever found by Avon and Somerset Constabulary was seized from a property in Weston yesterday (Thurs).

The record plant scaled a six-foot fence in the garden of a property in Brue Close on the Bournville estate.

Officers raided two neighbouring homes and found the plant along with cannabis bud, weapons, weighing scales and cash.

Two men were arrested, one from each property.

Inside one house, there was cannabis bud drying next to radiators and on a clothes airer.

Weapons including a baseball bat, two sets of scales and cash were also seized from the house and a 49-year-old man was arrested.

Neighbourhood beat manager Andy Vallender said: “While we obviously had information to prompt us going to the houses, we did not expect to find anything like the size of plants and quantity of cannabis.

“People need to understand that cultivating cannabis is against the law and we will act on any information we get about people growing it.

“When you consider the other things seized from one property – the scales, the money, the weapons – you can see it is not a harmless pastime.”

Anyone with information on cannabis production is asked to police on 101.

Top 10 tallest cannabis strains

Although tall cannabis strains offer spectacular yields, they definitely require more work than your average plants. Their towering heights mean they take a lot longer to reach maturity when compared to a fast-growing yet tiny autoflowering strain. Additionally, growers should be prepared for relatively high maintenance in terms of pruning and defoliation. This slight increase in labor is all worth it though; the view of mammoth cannabis trees dominating the garden space is a sight to behold.

If you have the space and you’re growing anyway, why don’t grow big, bigger, biggest? Here is our top 10 tallest cannabis strains available.

1. Monster

Monster received its gigantic genes through a breeding project involving parent strains Mexican, Mr. Nice G13 x Hash Plant, and Colombian. This genetic medley produced a sativa-dominant strain that features 80% sativa genetics and just 20% indica. These genetics are what makes Monster so imposing in stature.

The high induced from smoking a bong bowl loaded with Monster is sativa in nature, providing users with feelings of motivation, happiness, and euphoria. The uplifting and cerebral effects make the strain a good choice before physical activity or long working hours. This buzzy effect is augmented by desirable tastes and aromas of spices and wood.

Planting this beast within a garden bed or large pot will unleash the full potential of the magnificent specimen, allowing it to explode to heights of 4m with staggering yields of approximately 2800g/plant! She has a flowering time of 9–10 weeks.

2. Moby Dick

This unique specimen was birthed from a breeding project involving legendary strains White Widow and Haze. The high generated by Moby Dick is especially popular among smokers who prefer more intense and powerful experiences. The outcome is primarily a head high that brings about energetic, uplifting, and psychedelic sensations. The high is long-lasting, so strap in for the ride. The flowers offer tastes and smells of spice and lemon, which add to the intense energy of the high.

Indoor strains are capable of providing up to 650g/m² and grow to tall heights. However, their outdoor counterparts truly represent what this strain is capable of by pumping out massive yields of 1500g/plant and achieving towering heights up to 3.5m. Moby Dick features a flowering time of around 10 weeks.

3. Malawi Gold

This is a 100% sativa specimen that is also a landrace strain, meaning she is purely the product of her native environment. Malawi Gold has developed over centuries in the northern Malawi region of Southeast Africa, where she adapted to the stressors of her habitat. The lack of intensive selective breeding has left Malawi Gold with a medium THC content, resulting in a pleasant high that is clear, crisp, and subtle. It’s a superb smoke for users who prefer lighter highs that don’t overwhelm. Each toke is accompanied by spicy and fresh tastes.

This tall and branchy strain has evolved purely to thrive within outdoor settings and features a high growing difficulty. Indoor and outdoor plants feature medium yields and tall outdoor heights. Malawi Gold features a lengthy flowering time of 14 to 16 weeks, so some serious patience is required.

4. Dutch Dragon

Dutch Dragon can produce varying levels of THC between 17–21%, meaning highs can either be slightly mellow or quite intense. Regardless of potency, the high always induces pleasurable feelings of alertness, euphoria, and happiness. The uplifting and cerebral effects really get the cogs of the mind turning, making this smoke a great choice when having deep conversations with friends. Dutch Dragon is also a treat for the taste buds, offering mouthwatering flavors of sweet, sour, and citrus.

Dutch Dragon produces some very beautiful flowers, featuring light green shades, high quantities of trichomes, and bright orange hairs. She has a wild and unpredictable growth pattern and therefore requires quite a bit of TLC in order to tame her. Techniques such as topping and low stress training will do the trick. When grown indoors, Dutch Dragon offers yields of 500g/m² and reaches tall heights. Outdoor plants will produce massive yields up to 1000g/plant and grow to gigantic heights. She features a flowering time of 9–10 weeks.

5. Jack La Mota

Jack La Mota is in part named after Jack Herer, the legendary cannabis rights activist and “emperor” of hemp. The strain was created by combining some of the most appreciated and high-quality genetics out there in the form of Skunk, Haze, and Northern Lights 5. This breeding project produced a sativa-dominant strain featuring 75% sativa genetics and 25% indica genetics.

The flowers of Jack La Mota feature a THC content of between 15–20% and a high CBD content. This cannabinoid profile makes Jack La Mota a highly medicinal strain capable of easing symptoms of chronic pain, stress, anxiety, sleeping issues, and more. The terpene profile within the buds produces fantastic tastes and aromas of citrus, pine, skunk, and fruit.

Jack La Mota can be grown with great success in both indoor and outdoor settings. Indoor plants will produce large yields and grow to tall heights, so a large amount of free space is needed. Outdoor plants will outperform their indoor cousins and churn out huge yields, achieving heights of 3m. She features a flowering time of between 11–12 weeks.

If you have the space and you're growing anyway, why don't grow big, bigger, biggest? Check out our Top 10 with strains that grow to incredible heights.
