7 Best Strains in Italy

The impact of Italy on the cannabis industry is remarkable. Gelato and strains with dessert-like flavours are gaining significant popularity among enthusiasts. Moreover, there has been a noteworthy increase in Italians’ cultivation practices documented through various platforms like Growdiaries, highlighting the country’s growing prominence in the cannabis community.

Italy’s climate is diverse and varies significantly between the northern and southern regions. The northern areas, such as Liguria and Lombardy, have a continental climate with shorter summers and colder winters. Conversely, the southern areas enjoy a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters, making it an ideal location for outdoor cannabis cultivation.

In Italy, planting typically occurs during spring, and harvesting occurs in autumn when the days are shorter and the temperatures are cooler. This timing allows for optimal growth and development of the cannabis plant, resulting in a high-quality harvest. If you’re looking for the top cannabis strains to cultivate in Italy, then you’re in luck. Here are the seven best strains to consider.

1. Caramellow Kush

Caramellow Kush Automatic combines two potent hybrids, the heavy-hitting Gorilla and the flavoursome Zkittlez. Italian cannabis growers have widely embraced this strain due to its high potency and ease of cultivation. This strain has proven successful in various climates, from the damp northern regions to the sunny south, making it a versatile choice for growers across the country.

Like a classic Kush, Caramellow Kush produces big, chunky buds covered in trichomes that fill the internodal spacing with a classic indica appearance. Despite being an autoflowering strain, it is known for its high-yielding nature, with growers recording yields of up to 550 grams after a 55 to 70-day flowering period. Similar to a traditional indica strain, Italian cannabis users have reported experiencing a sustained body high that induces feelings of euphoria and contentment.

Well-known for its sweet and creamy profile, Caramellow Kush Automatic is almost reminiscent of your grandparents’ Werther’s Originals. It also has a subtle, sweet, and fruity fragrance that leaves a candy-like taste in your mouth, thanks to the influence of Zkittlez. Upon exhalation, users can experience the distinct, robust, earthy flavour and skunky undertones commonly associated with Kush varieties. If you’re a Kush enthusiast fond of sweet flavours, it is definitely worth trying out!

2. Sweet Tangerine Tango

This potent indica strain, Sweet Tangerine Tango Automatic, was created by crossbreeding three highly potent cultivars: OG KushGirl Scout Cookies, and Face-Off OG. It is a heavy-hitting strain that delivers a strong punch. Sweet Tangerine Tango Automatic has been a popular choice among Italian cultivators since its addition to our White Label collection in 2023.

Sweet Tangerine Tango is a versatile strain that thrives in Mediterranean climates. Thanks to its autoflowering traits, this strain is an easy-to-grow, compact and robust plant. With a flowering period of between 55 and 65 days, this strain produces compact buds that stack on themselves, filling the short internodal spacing. However, growers should be aware of the heavy foliage throughout the vegetation period and consider defoliation to ensure optimal growth.

True to its name, Sweet Tangerine Tango boasts an exquisite terpene profile featuring loud notes of zesty tangerine and subtle fragrances of spicy charas. These delightful aromas are sure to make your mouth water in anticipation of the strain’s potent effects. As a well-balanced hybrid, users can anticipate an uplifting euphoria that frees the mind, enhances creativity, and gradually transitions into a long-lasting subtle body high.
