LowRyder was the first commercially successful autoflowering strain. Originally offered by a growing pioneer known only as The Joint Doctor. Nearly all modern autoflowering strains have these genetics somewhere in their ancestry. When
Ifirst heard of this strain type in 2009, growers used the terms lowryder, ryder, and auto-flowering interchangeably. If a strain was “Diesel Ryder” or “Purple Ryder” you knew it was an auto-flowering strain. Now the term auto-flowering
(or”auto”) is used almost exclusively. Probably because it’s way more clear and the original LowRyder strain by The Joint Doctor is long gone from the public eye. But there are still Ryder strains so the legacy lives on.
