If you want to grow a strain simply to transform it into a concentrate, you'll probably want something known for producing a lot of resin. However, mixing strains can quickly become a juggling act. When starting out, we recommend growing varieties that reach similar heights and have almost identical growth cycles and flowering times. This will help you prevent one plant from growing too tall and eclipsing the others, and from harvesting one variety but having to wait another month to receive a yield from another.
Over time, you'll feel comfortable enough to mix very different varieties in the same growing space. Narrow down your list to a few strains Now is the time to create a list of possible cannabis strains. Definitely add as many as you want at first, but then I recommend narrowing down your list of strains so you don't get caught up in the overwhelming one.

Seed shops and banks don't necessarily indicate how tall specific strains are going to grow, so if you're especially concerned about height, then it's good to go for strains that are known to be short. Laboratory tests not only let you know what's in your strain, which can help you decide which strains to try, but they also let you know that the cannabis you're using is safe, no matter which strain you choose.
