How much weed can you grow from 1 cannabis plant?

If you’re like most cannabis users, chances are you’ve found yourself asking this question: “How much weed could I produce off a single plant ?”

Well, roughly, anywhere between 0 and 1500 grams

Unfortunately, a more precise answer to this question is very difficult. But we’ll do our best to give you some estimates below.

There are a number of factors that influence how much weed your able to grow from a single plant. These include:

  • Autoflowering or photoperiod
  • Indica or sativa
  • Indoors or outdoors
  • Quality of your soil and nutrients,
  • Amount of sun/light your plant/s will receive, and
  • Your skills as a grower

As mentioned before the yield of one outdoor cannabis plant can range anywhere from 0 up to 1500 grams. However, here are some ballpark figures:

  • Photoperiod plants growing in average conditions will produce roughly 200-600 grams per plant.
  • Autoflowering plants growing in average conditions will produce roughly 30-120 grams per plant.

If you plan to grow indoors, these figures will vary even further. The success of indoor harvests are usually measured by the amount of grams/watt, not per plant. This is because, in a 1m² grow space for example, you can either grow 1 big plant or up to 25 smaller ones.

Whether you're better off growing 1 or 2 full-grown plants or multiple smaller plants is debatable, but most commercial growers choose to grow multiple smaller plants as opposed to just 1 or 2 big plants.
