1. Godfather OG
Known as the most potent strain in the world, Godfather OG does not disappoint. This Indica hybrid offers a powerful full body relaxation and is easy on the eyes. Covered in a sticky resin with red pistols and sprinkled with crystals this one will lull you into a happy, relaxed state and help you sleep like a baby.
2. The Chemdawg
Chemdawg won the Cannabis Cup title for 2018 for its popularity and high THC content. These large bright green buds look deceiving since they don’t look as fancy as a few others on the list but don’t let looks alone fool you. This Indica dominant hybrid comes with a potent smell and a sweet taste that goes down smooth but comes on strong.
3. White Fire OG
Many are surprised to learn that the infamous White Fire OG is a 60% Sativa dominant hybrid. It does offer a lighter more energetic buzz that won’t slow you down until it wears off. This one is beautiful, covered in snow like crystals always leaving a trail of powder in its wake. WFOG has a sweet but earthy smell and taste and some of the densest buds we have ever seen. If you are looking for a strain to go dancing with this one might be it!
4. The White OG
Another Indica dominant strain, The White OG smells like pine with a citrus lemon taste. The buds are covered in fine white trichomes with a dark green leaf. This strain won the 2010 and 2014 Cannabis Cups. It packs a powerful punch that will come on slowly but last for hours - another one that’s great for those who want to be active while high.
5. Ghost Train Haze
Ghost Train Haze comes with large bring red hairs and is powdered with white crystal, it looks exactly like you would expect with such a name. GTH is most known amongs more creative crowds such as writers and artists for its ability to allow the user to continue to concentrate while also completely relaxing the body, however, in higher doses the effect is more powerful and sleep-inducing. This Indica may be last on our list for THC content but has some of the highestreviews across the board for taste, smell and overall experience.
What is THC?
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), is the most sought-after cannabinoid produced by the marijuana plant. It contains the chemicals responsible for the psychoactive and euphoric effects most users expect from cannabis. The compounds activate during the decarboxylation process, which means when heated to at least 220 F. This process can be done with heat coils or flame when vaping or smoking, but it can also be recreated using a heat source like an oven.
Just How Potent Can Weed Get?
The effects of each strain will depend on your level of weed tolerance. While the THC content in a plant is certainly a good indicator of strength, you may find you like the effects of one that's closer to 22% over one that makes this list. There are other things to consider, such as terpenes, (aroma and taste) that can dramatically affect a user’s overall experience. No matter your personal preference, there is something on this list for everyone.
