Candy land is a comparatively easy strain to grow when weighed against other Sativas. It can be grown indoors and outdoors with a flowering period of between 8-9 weeks on an indoor grow and a September harvest for outdoor grows. The weight really piles on towards the end of the growth cycle as the buds begin to weigh down the plant’s rather tall and skinny frame. Yields can reach up to 2.5 ounces per plant indoors with outdoor yields up to 3 pounds per plant.
Candy land was a Gold Medalist in KushCon 2012 in Denver which boasted a record 50,000 attendees for that particular convention.
