High potency strains are a big deal in 2021, and there is now quite a large selection available. Some of the world’s strongest strains are now pushing 35 percent THC, making the weed stronger than ever. While some suggest that the cannabis plant can’t produce much more THC than that, breeders are certainly doing their best to provide as potent of an experience as possible. Here are the 10 strongest strains:
Sour Diesel produces dreamy cerebral effects that are fast-acting and energizing. This strain features a pungent flavor profile that smells like diesel. Medical marijuana patients choose Sour Diesel to help relieve symptoms associated with depression, pain, and stress.
Another Manali West treat, Pink Starburst, has tested as high 32.49 percent THC. This hybrid is a complicated cross between DJ Short’s Blueberry, Headband (Underdog OG), and AJ Sour Diesel (BX3).
The strain was then backcrossed on itself to produce Pink Starburst. The result is a strain with indica growth patterns but more of an uplifting sativa experience, a true craft flower.
With earthy flavors of lemons and citrus, Amnesia Haze is the perfect sativa strain to start your day with a smile. The uplifting, energetic buzz is one you won’t soon forget.
This regal strain features between 27 and 30 percent THC, making it one of the strongest strains in the world right now. An offspring of AK-47, King Tut packs some serious energy.
Classified as a sativa, this strain is a bit unique among other high-producing buds. While all of the most potent strains in the world are hybrids, most err toward the middle or indica side of the spectrum.
Wedding Cake is a potent indica-hybrid marijuana strain made by crossing Cherry Pie with Girl Scout Cookies. Wedding Cake provides relaxing and euphoric effects that calm the body and mind. This strain features a rich and tangy flavor profile with undertones of earthy pepper. Medical marijuana patients choose Wedding Cake to help relieve symptoms associated with pain, insomnia and appetite loss. Consumers with a low THC tolerance should enjoy this strain with an extra slice of care due to its high THC content.
Gorilla Glue is one of the most popular strains in the U.S. right now. A potent and high-yielding hybrid, this bud produces a heavy yet comfortable high that knocks away pain.
In the past, this strain has reached the 30 percent THC mark. Yet, the standard bud falls between the 24 and 28 percent range.
Blissful Wizard was bred by the Captain’s Connection tests between 25 and 34 percent THC. A cross between the famous Girl Scout Cookies and Captain’s Cookies, this bud produces a soaring euphoric high that will put you in a good mood for a few hours.
This strain has a tendency to stimulate appetite, so having some snacks on hand before partaking is recommended.
The White Marijuana strain
In the past, The White has been difficult to find. However, as word about this amazing hybrid spreads around, this strain is growing in popularity.
The White features around 29 percent THC, which makes it great to consume on its own or to use in breeding projects. The exact origins of this strain are a mystery, but it is thought to contain OG Kush lineage.
Zkittlez is an indica-dominant mix of Grape Ape and Grapefruit that is crossed with another undisclosed strain to produce this candy-flavored strain. The chunky colas explode in a spectrum of light green hues and emit a sweet, tropical blend of fruit flavors. The effects of Zkittlez are calming, leaving consumers focused, alert, and happy while relaxing the body to help unwind any time of day.
Over the past few years, Girl Scout Cookies has taken the U.S. by storm. This delightful hybrid cross of Durban Poison and OG Kush features up to 28 percent THC, setting a high bar for new contemporary hybrids.
Uplifting and euphoric, Girl Scout Cookies provides a soaring cerebral experience and a hefty amount of full-body relaxation. For experienced consumers, this strain makes a great daytime toke.
