Hey I'm in the midwestern us so I've been looking up strains that do alright in cooler temps. After looking at a couple articles online I've been browsing for grandaddy purp, northern lights, zkittlez, white widow, green crack, lsd, ak47, and critical mass. If you have strain suggestions based on my location I'd love to hear them!

We have a dedicated category for 'outdoor specialist' strains on our store, which are characterised by performing well in cold or damp conditions and stronger resistance against botrytis. Feel free to check those out for further research and I'm around if you have any questions about specific strains. ACE Seeds and Emerald Mountain Legacy in particular have lots of varieties that fit into this category.

I am assuming you're growing indoors because outdoors in the Midwest US is a joke. 

With that out of the way , if you want to skip the temperature issues all together you can go for an auto flower in order to keep your temps up with the light fixtures. Can run them at 20/4 or 24 to keep it warm in the tent. 420 Fast Buds Cream Cookies Auto is really strong and does well. Short squat plants with chunky dense nugs.

If you want to stick with photo or photo fem then Ethos Cookies R2 Fems is a good one. Last run it was seeing temp swings from 58F to 70F and it still had no issues. 

Obviously you can run a space heater on a timer to keep things where you want them. I'm a bit too paranoid to run a space heater inside of a tent though personally.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else.

@tommy_pickles now is the time to planning an outdoor guerilla grow for the Midwest -- lots of people do it with great success. Plant in spring, harvest in fall, zero utility bills.

@m_rachlan    3rd Generation Midwest Farmer here.  Nice to meet up with you here at Percy's Grow Room.  Barney's Farm may have the strain that you are looking for.  I suggest that you search for a strain that delivers the effect that you are looking for first, then find one that will grow good in the environment that you can provide.  Most strains grow outdoors just as well, if not better, than indoors.  On Barney's website most of the strains have a "growing difficulty" scale in the explanation section of each strain.  If you worry about humidity, you might want to find a strain that is mold resistant.  You might be aware that what grows awesome in Silicone Valley might grow different in the mountains of Colorado.  However, I don't believe that there is any wrong answer here especially if you grow indoors you can always make adjustments to your environment.  I do not know of any strain that we cannot grow here in the Midwest.  However, if you are in the northern part of the Midwest and plan to grow outdoors you might want to choose strains that have a shorter flower period (8-9 weeks or just grow Auto Flowers).  A few sativa strains (Dr. Grinspoon for example) have some long flower times (11-12 weeks) that might not get finished before it gets cold out.
