According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the strongest weed strain in the '70s would be ranked among the weakest today. However, we don't need a report by the National Institute on Drug Abuse to tell us that weed is becoming more potent; we already know that. The THC content in marijuana is increasing in potency as pot becomes more popular and breeders become more well-studied.
This increased level of potency is connected to an increase in THC, and the highest THC strains have been cultivated due to the focus that growers put on sinsemilla. Sinsemilla is the top part of female plants which have not been, and they contain increased amounts of THC. Then the lower parts like the water leaves and trimmings are removed in the harvest because these barely contain any THC. This is just one method that cultivators use to produce buds that have an increased THC concentration.
In the modern market, cannabis strains are being developed according to cannabinoid profiles and use the latest science and technology to increase specific cannabinoid profiles, which result in more potent weed. Studies show that in the heydays of the '60s and '70s, having marijuana that had THC content higher than 10% was a rare find. Nowadays, 10% could even be considered the average. What's more, acquiring a cannabis strain that contains THC over 20% is quite common.
For those that are seeking the strongest weed strain, or are looking to get a potent high, this is excellent news. However, now you may be wondering; what is the highest THC strain? Keep reading to find out which strains make it onto the list of the "world's strongest."
Our top 5 picks for the strongest weed strain of 2019
Before we dive in, it is essential to remember that these strains may not be all new; in fact, you may even have selected one or more of these strains from the list before. However, over the years, some of these strains have been redeveloped to contain higher levels of THC to meet the market's demand.
The majority of the strongest weed strains have undergone selective breeding. This means that they have had been bred over generations to contain solely female genes. This is because the female genes are the ones that will yield high THC weed.
So, let's take a look at what we consider to be the world's most potent marijuana strains.
1. Godfather OG
This is arguably the world's most potent marijuana strain. High Times places the Godfather OG as the planet's most potent strain.
What is it?
It is a hybrid but is more Indica-dominant. The Godfather OG is not considered the planet's most potent for nothing; the THC content is, on average, around 34%. What's more, this value is considered to be a conservative estimate- so it is likely that if you find yourself in possession of an OG Godfather strain, it could carry a THC content higher than that.
Where does it come from?
It originates from California and is cultivated by the breeders over at California Herbal Remedies (CHR).
The breeders say that the Godfather OG is a mix of a few strain greats, including OG Kush, Cherry Pie, and Grandaddy Purple. Moreover, with these genetics, the Godfather was developed to live up to its name as the 'don' of all the Kush strains on the planet.
So, we know that the Godfather OG has the strength, but does it have the quality?
The answer to this can be found in the records of the cannabis cup winners. The Godfather OG has been selected as the winner for the High Times Cannabis Cup in the best Indica strain category. This means that the strain has both the quality and the potent punch.
How does it feel?
If you want to know what it feels like to enjoy the world's strongest cannabis strain, then you should know a few things to prepare before you try it for yourself. If you smoke this strain, you should be ready for an immediate cerebral high. Shortly after this initial cerebral celebration, you will feel your entire body soaking in the euphoric sensation.
People who had smoked the Godfather OG describe it as a calm and happy high, but with intense euphoria flowing through both body and mind. Remember, the Godfather OG is essentially a descent of the most potent Kush strains, so if you do want to try this strain, it is better to first try it at home, where you can have a free afternoon just in case you land up feeling couch locked for a couple of hours.
