Don’t let the name put you off – the Duct Tape weed strain is high-quality cannabis. Its smell, taste, look, and effects all contribute to its appeal, with a strength of presence worthy of its namesake. Crossing Do-si-dos and Original Glue (formerly Gorilla Glue #4), the folks at Archive Seed Bank in Portland, OR, created a well-balanced hybrid that packs a reliable punch with a whopping 23% to 25% THC. Its CBD levels range from 0.47% to 0.65%.
|Sativa/Indica %||Indoor Yield||Outdoor Yield||Flowering Period|
|50%/50%||around an ounce per square foot||around an ounce per square foot||around 10 weeks indoors, harvest around fall outdoors|
The smell of Duct Tape isn’t for the faint of heart, having inherited an earthy, fuel aroma from Original Glue and strong hash notes from Do-si-dos. Newbies might find the harshness of the gasoline smell a bit much. This is good since Duct Tape is better for more advanced smokers or those willing to go low and slow.
As far as effects, you couldn’t ask for a better strain than this 50/50 hybrid of indica and sativa. Highly potent, Duct Tape hits headfirst with a euphoric feeling that quickly makes its way through the body and delivers a nice boost of energy and creativity. However, don’t call it a daytime smoke. Duct Tape leads to a deep, full-body relaxation that leaves some users feeling sleepy. Give it a test before using it at the start of a busy day.

Duct Tape is a beautiful plant as well. Light in color and covered in trichomes, this strain has even more frost than its parents. This strain can be grown indoors and out, but it prefers a somewhat tropical climate. Give it plenty of water and humidity levels around 55%. This plant prefers average daytime temps of somewhere near 76 degrees Fahrenheit and will best thrive in nighttime temperatures of about 69 degrees.
You can expect these plants to grow an average of 48 inches in height, so be sure to make plenty of space and plan to train, trim, or top. You may be thinking that with a weed plant, bigger is always better. However, that is not always the case. To maximize the yield, you must ensure that light reaches as much of the plant as possible. Bigger buds at the top can block light from the buds at the bottom of the plant. Outdoors, bigger plants can cause problems because they tend to attract attention. Indoors, you’ll want to prevent your plants from taking up too much space.
Duct Tape strain seeds can be grown both indoors and outdoors. You can coax this plant to flower in as little as five weeks if grown in the right conditions. The flowering time indoors is generally around ten weeks. Outdoors expect a typical fall harvest.
