While we’ve had access to plenty of strong cannabis strains for quite some time, there are new advances in the field every day. We’re happy to present an updated list of some of the most potent varieties of the bunch. Featuring new strains like Cookies Gelato and Triple G, as well as some of the old-timers!
Determining the strength of cannabis is not always straight forward, once you have have chosen which strain you would like to use, there are also a number of factors which will affect the THC content of the bud.
So now we’ve got that out the way, what are the best and strongest strains out there?
Stable genetics produce predictable features passed down from parent strains, whereas unstable genetics can often give the offspring unpredictable features which can be difficult to manage.
That being said, it’s important to take all these factors into consideration when you begin your garden so that you know what kind of strain is most suitable for you. Landrace and heirloom seeds for example, have been cultivated for centuries and have traits specific to adapting to their native environment. On the other hand, when growing indoors you may want to find a strain that is less pungent, smaller in size and more pest resilient. It is for this reason that you should have a good idea about how you intend to grow your garden before you chose your seeds.
Nowadays, cultivators are able to select desired characteristics of growth, appearance and effect. This can be really useful in finding a strain that’s right for you and your needs.
Although there are many methods of growing cannabis, they all come with a different set of pros and cons . for example, if you wanted to grow your plant under some of the UVB spectrum, you would either have to find a nice mountain close to the equator or purchase some UVB emitting LEDs. Both of these methods have problems; LED lights are rather expensive, and walking up a mountain to grow your bud will also leave you feeling pretty low on energy.
Chemdawg is a cross between OG kush and Chemdawg 4. With that she leans a bit more towards the Sativa side which is evident during her growth. A rather large plant (especially when grown outdoors), with many branches that grow incredibly thick buds.
The weed offers physical relaxation and mental stress relief without the feeling of being nailed to the couch.
We conclude this top 10 with the strongest cannabis strains with the legendary Chemdawg.
According to the High Times, Godfather OG is the strongest weed strain in the world currently available. She won the award for best Indica at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2013.
The newest version of Bruce Banner is a cross between Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush. Her purple-green buds have a deliciously sweet taste and are extremely potent. On average the weed has 24% THC, but that can go up to 27%! A really strong weed.
Skywalker OG is suitable for growers with some growing experience. The plant has a somewhat reduced resistance to mold.
As the name suggests, Acapulco Gold thrives in a warm and humid climate. Just like you would find in the Mexican rainforest. This is somewhat difficult to reproduce when growing indoors. We therefore recommend Acapulco Gold to experienced growers.
