How much weed can you grow from 1 cannabis plant?
Published Last updated
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.
