We often think of progress in terms of technology — faster wi-fi, increased storage capacity, higher pixel count, smaller processors. And though it hasn’t enjoyed the explosion of growth that the tech sector has, improvements in the marijuana industry have been made.
Sure, there has been a good deal of couch-sitting — we are dealing with marijuana, after all — and the industry probably hasn’t come as far as it could have if it didn’t revolve around psychotropics, but advancements in weed have abounded since little Johnny first became a pothead.
The most significant improvement over the course of the last 45 years has been the dramatic increase in THC content.
The differences between the marijuana of yesteryear and the marijuana of today are fairly significant, but the bottom line is that average THC content has increased 100% (in some cases, more than 700%) since the 1970s.
Back then, the average THC content hovered around 3.5 percent. Today, marijuana THC content averages more than 7 percent, but modern growing techniques can push it as high as 27 percent.
That’s quite an improvement, don’t you think? Who cares about faster Wi-Fi? Give me some ganja with 27 percent THC and I’ll be just fine!
So in the spirit of progress, we’ve put together a list of the 20 strongest weed strains available today that illustrate just how far Mary Jane has come. Enjoy.
1) Bruce Banner #3
Anything named after a guy who can go from mild-mannered scientist to hulking beast (pun intended) in seconds has got to be good.
Not that you’re going to turn into a raging monster or anything, but smoking Bruce Banner #3 will certainly cause a transformation of sorts.
This potent strain made it onto most of the lists we reviewed, and for good reason: It contains a whopping 29% THC. You don’t get much better than that without switching to dabbing.

Some weed strains have very strange names and you just know they were thought up while under the influence. Other strains have names that are both appropriate and descriptive and were likely thought up in a stroke of genius (also under the influence, of course).
Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is certainly one of the latter. Forget about the 17-28% THC. Forget about the euphoria and relaxation it creates. This strain is named appropriately because — like the delicious cookies — you can just never get enough.
3) Black Gorilla
Black Gorilla is a hybrid of Gorilla Glue #4 (a potent strain in itself) and Bright Berry so you know it’s gotta be good. This is one of those names that I often question.
It’s like they just picked a word out of a dictionary without giving it any thought. Aren’t most gorillas black? I certainly haven’t smoked enough weed that my answer would be no.
So why name it that? Why not get creative and call it Green Gorilla? Nice use of consonance, don’t you think? Dibs on the name, by the way! Or maybe go the rhyming way with Vanilla Gorilla?
Prosaic name aside, this is a nicely potent strain that will knock you on your ass like you’ve been hit by a black gorilla…oh, now I get it.
4) Strawberry Cough
Another well-named strain, if you don’t mind me saying so — very poetic. Strawberry Cough conjures up images of sweet-smelling smoke and hours spent relaxing under the influence.
It’s very inviting and non-threatening, don’t you think? Soft and squishy name aside, Strawberry Cough boasts THC content in the 25-26% range, making it one of the more potent strains available.
So whatever your marijuana needs for the day might be, Strawberry Cough can get you there in style.
5) Red Dragon
Another potent strain that specializes in a heady sense of happiness, euphoria, and the seemingly-at-odds relaxation and excitement. That’s a mystical combination with an appropriately mystical name.
Legend has it that this strain got its name from the vivid red hairs that adorn the mature buds and give them a dragon-like appearance. I don’t know about all that, but this is certainly an excellently powerful strain that will fly you to places you’ve never even imagined.
Do you have what it takes to tame the Red Dragon? Regardless, it will be one hell of a ride!
6) Ghost Train Haze
Bred from parents Ghost OG and Nevil’s Wreck, this strain measures in at 25% THC content and can serve as your express train to good times.
Contrary to its name, Ghost Train Haze has a tendency to stimulate focus and creativity so you won’t be walking around in a daze (or haze). Ghost Train Haze won’t scare you silly, but it will knock your socks off with flavors reminiscent of sweet, earthy citrus.
Delicious! All aboard the Ghost Train Haze express.
7) Chem Dog
Chem Dog can trace its roots (again, pun intended) back to the well-known strains Kush, Hash Plant, and Northern Lights.
It offers very pungent, earthy diesel flavors and results in a relaxed, euphoric high with tinges of creativity floating on the periphery.
But like many of the strains on this list, Chem Dog should be approached with the caution it deserves. THC levels top out at 15-20%, so it can kick you where it counts in no time flat and take you deep inside your head (for good or bad) on a very cerebral trip.
8) Sour Diesel
Weighing in at 19-25% THC, Sour Diesel offers a happy high without the “couch-lock” that has become so common amongst high-THC strains.
As the name describes, Sour Diesel offers the pungent, earthy diesel smell that has come to be the defining identifier of many a quality strain of weed. The mileage you’ll get from this well-known strain will exceed your wildest dreams.
So fill your tank, grab some snacks and drinks, and get started on a journey you’ll never forget. Sour Diesel will get you there and back again.
9) Blue Dream
Writing about Blue Dream makes me remember the time I smoked this potent strain while listening to the Satriani song Flying In A Blue Dream. I know it’s cliche, but it was a seriously good time and I recommend the experience to everyone (if you like instrumental electric guitar).
Blue Dream (the weed) produces sweet berry flavors paired with 17-24% THC for a smooth, relaxing high reminiscent of the feel of Satriani’s classic song.
So light up, lie down, and you’ll be flying in a blue-dream-induced haze in no time.
10) Death Star
To paraphrase a classic line, “That’s no moon. It’s a ganja strain!” Death Star shares its sativa and indica effects with its parents Sensi Star and Sour Diesel and offers a truly unique experience.
Though sometimes slow to take over, Death Star never fails to zap your cares and will transport you to a state of relaxed euphoria like none other. Like its parent strain, Sour Diesel, Death Star produces flavors akin to the pungent, earthy diesel we’ve all come to know and love.
The thick, frosty leaves of the Death Star strain smoke very smooth and slow while, at the same time, delivering a heady indica punch for those who want to get stuck on their couch for a few hours.
11) Afghan Kush
Topping out at 20% THC, Afghan Kush is one heck of a powerful indica. The power of this potent strain lies in its ability to ease your pain, quiet you down, and lift your spirits all at the same time.
That’s a wonderful combination of effects. But don’t use Afghan Kush if you’ve got anything on your calendar. This strain will knock you on your ass and keep you there for hours.
12) White Widow
White Widow has been tested at a mind-blowing 30% THC content (with an average of 13.5%, which is still pretty darn good). One of the awesome things about White Widow is its ability to produce shloads of trichomes.
In fact, that’s how the strain got its name — it was so covered with resin glands, it looked white.
White Widow is an excellent choice for your next smoke sesh because of its sensory-heightening, chattiness-inducing effects. That said, the aroma of White Widow — ammonia and earthy pine — can be overwhelming, so good ventilation may be a necessity.
13) White Fire OG
White Fire OG — or WiFi OG for short — typically ranges from 25% to 30% THC content. Because it’s a sativa strain, it produces a pleasant sativa high.
That means that you can expect a calm yet energetic feeling with plenty of amplitude for your senses. White Fire OG is a stellar choice for relaxing outdoors, hanging on the front porch, or exploring the world around you.
Want a bracing euphoria and other potent cerebral effects? Stick a bit of the Jamaican strain in your pipe and smoke it.
Though Jamaican didn’t exist on the island it was named for before 1840, strains brought from India adapted well to the tropical climate and quickly took over. Since then, it’s become one of the more popular, and powerful, strains on the market today.
Jamaican tops out at 21% THC with the average specimen giving off a still-impressive 13% THC. Our experience with the Jamaican strain rendered us talkative and very sociable.
15) Gorilla Glue #4
Gorilla Glue #4 is a hybrid (a cross between indica and sativa) that flexes its THC muscles at between 24% and 30% on a regular basis.
That sky-high THC content quickly subdues even the toughest pain while still producing a solid and agreeable high. No departure from reality or rampant paranoia. Just an enjoyable body high with a hint of the psychotropic.
16) Super Silver Haze
Super Silver Haze is a popular sativa strain with strong THC levels hovering at around 20%. Like White Widow, Super Silver Haze produces a plethora of sticky trichomes that give it a distinctive silvery appearance — and provide plenty of fodder for its name.
When smoked, Super Silver Haze gives off a sweet, citrusy aroma with notes of earth and pine. Some users even detect a sharp, cheesy tang in the mix.
Whatever you taste and smell, Super Silver Haze creates a long-lasting body high coupled with energizing and creative effects. Experienced users describe the Super Silver Haze high as a motivated, clear-headed focus that morphs into a body buzz with only a dash of psychedelic distortion.
No need to worry about couchlock with this strong strain.
17) Blissful Wizard
Once known as Blissful Wizzard (with two Zs), this potent strain now goes by just Blissful Wizard (with on Z).
We’re very pleased with that choice of spelling, because anything that isn’t spelled like it sounds is just too much for us.
Blissful Wizard tops out at a whopping 34% THC content, so be careful when introducing this strain into your regular rotation. Start small (with a one-hitter, for example) and see how it affects you.
When you’re familiar with the consequences of your actions, you can increase slowly from there.
We only mention this because Blissful Wizard delivers a soaring euphoric high that can last for a couple of hours. You’ll maintain a decent state of mind throughout, but you don’t want to be making any major life choices while under Blissful Wizard’s sway.
Also of note, Blissful Wizard will make you hella-hungry, so make sure you have plenty of snacks on hand to satisfy your munchies.
18) Fruity Pebbles
We love the Fruity Pebbles strain for its tropical, berry flavors. The 22% THC content doesn’t hurt either.
Fruity Pebbles gets its kick from some well-known progenitors: Granddaddy Purple, Tahoe Alien, and Green Ribbon.
The Fruity Pebbles strain is an excellent choice for beginners and experts alike. It’s mild but powerful effects won’t set you to bouncing off the walls or hold you captive on your couch. But they will take you to places you’ve never been before.
That’s another reason we like this potent strain. All in all, it’s a versatile bud with plenty of beneficial effects — both recreational and medicinal — and can be used for a variety of intents and purposes (not just for getting high).
19) Yoda OG
Yoda OG’s 28% THC content makes it a particularly potent pot strain. Yoda OG affects both the body and the mind simultaneously, which makes for a full-on, head-to-toe high.
And don’t let that “high” word fool you. Yoda OG’s high is primarily soothing and mellow as opposed to tripping and exciting.
But, like the sneaky little Yoda dude from which this strain gets its name, the high can creep up on you slowly. It may take a while for the effects to kick in, but once they do, you’ll experience a synergistic body-and-mind euphoria that is without rival.
We recommend popping in your favorite film before smoking. That way you can zone out and enjoy the ride while your high builds and builds.
20) Cherry OG
While not being close the strongest strain on this list, Cherry OG rings in at a still-impressive 22% THC.
The effects of Cherry OG — euphoria and total body relaxation — are also pretty impressive, with some long-time cannaseurs describing their experience as locked onto your couch with a euphoric cerebral high that leaves you happy as a clam.
We don’t know about you, but that sounds like just what the doctor ordered after a long, stressful day at work.
What’s Your Vote?

That said, you really can’t go wrong with any of the THC-rich marijuana strains on this list. Sure, you’re going to have your own personal preference, but that’s half the fun of the experience, isn’t it?
When you boil it all down, rating marijuana strains is like critiquing fine art: You’re going to love some and hate some but finding your favorite will be an excellent adventure.

The 10 high-THC strains you should know about
The 10 high-THC strains you should know about Every year, weed gets higher — in THC, that is. Throughout our shared history with the cannabis plant, we’ve slowly bred it to produce more of its primary intoxicating and psychoactive cannabinoid, with THC percentages of some plants reaching the mid-30s. Though cannabis contains myriad cannabinoids, with more than 100 cannabinoids identified in the plant to date, it’s still tetrahydrocannabinol that reigns supreme. And as the plant has evolved to become more desirable to humans, thereby securing its own survival, a number of strains with particularly high ratios of THC have emerged and garnered reputations as some of the most potent weed on the planet. For good reason. THC isn’t the only cannabinoid or native cannabis compound that contributes to the cannabis high, but it is without a doubt the main player. When you hear weed described as intoxicating, euphoric, sedating, mind-altering, and socially enhancing, you’re hearing about effects for which THC may largely be responsible. Though its effects have traditionally been sought after for recreational use, THC has also been found to alleviate pain and inflammation, stimulate appetite, reduce nausea, and treat muscle spasticity. All of these factors usually end up as the shorthand of “strongest weed strain.” If you’re looking for a high-THC experience from cannabis flower, an ever-growing variety of ultra-high-THC strains are available in most legal markets. To put you on the right track, here are some of the top 10 weed strains historically known to deliver the highest amounts of everyone’s favorite cannabinoid. GG4 GG4, also known as Gorilla Glue, Original Glue, and Gorilla Glue #4, was the best phenotype of a strain bred by the founders of Nevada’s GG Strains, Josey Whales and Lone Watty. Whales and Watty’s original strain was the result of an accidental cross of Sour Dubb and Chem Sister, a popular phenotype of notable high-THC strain Chemdog. When Whales’ friend and fellow breeder Mardogg cultivated four phenotypes, Whales decided on #4 as the winning GG4 strain. GG4 has tested from 27% to 30% THC and is certified by True-Breed and Phylos Bioscience, according to the GG Strains website. At the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup, GG Strains released 125 GG4 cuttings to fellow growers, making the strain a prolific high-THC strain across several cultivators and brands. Gorilla Glue is a trademarked brand of adhesive, and its makers settled a lawsuit with GG Strains, which can no longer market the weed under the original name. The Toad A more recent addition to the high-THC strain canon, The Toad is an exclusive of Tyson Ranch, the cannabis brand and product line co-founded by Mike Tyson. A mostly Indica strain deriving from Chemdawg OG and GSC, The Toad offers a euphoric high pretty immediately, then settles into a body relaxation, according to Tyson Ranch. The Toad has been tested at nearly 37% THC with a total of 43% cannabinoids. Kevin Bell, chief operating officer of cannabis and hemp operations at Tyson Ranch, told Weedmaps News that the company found the strain from another grower and offered to sell the flower if Tyson liked it. The Toad and other Tyson Ranch products are currently available in California and Nevada….
The Strongest Weed Strains on Earth | High Times
The Strongest Weed Strains on Earth At the start of 2016, we examined the six HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cups from the previous year and the thousands of entries they tallied. The goal? To ascertain exactly which of the entries deserve to be called the strongest strains on planet Earth. There are many types of weed strains with varying levels of THC. Our goal was to determine the strongest weed strain. In years past, we’ve built our “Strongest Strains on Earth” list simply in order of potency. We’ve reorganized the article to categorize these potent strains by their place of birth. (Readers enjoyed this format last year, so we’ll use it again.) These rankings represent only one data point: THC potency, as determined by lab testing. They do not include the judges’ scores or notations, or any other cannabinoids or terpenes (the latter can be read about in our new annual feature, “The Best-Tasting Buds on Earth”). However, this year we’ve included a short list of the strongest CBD strains from 2015 to complement our THC charts. So if you’re looking for a strain with a knockout punch, one that will get you high when you’re feeling low—you’re in the right place! Region: Southern California 1. Emperor Cookie Dough Competitor: Greenwolf LA 2015 Cannabis Cup: Denver Cup Category: Hybrid Flowers (US) % THC: 31.1 2.

The other strain to do so? Keep on reading…. Karmasutra, a collaboration project, is a hybrid of the Karma OG crossed with Rockstar. Rockstar has two known versions: The Canadian version is a Bubba Kush x Lemon OG, while the European version is Rockbud x Sensi Star. Veganic Strawberry Cough has been included in our “Strongest Strains on Earth” compilation (hereafter, The List) for three out of the five years that HIGH TIMES has been running it. In 2012, the VSC maxed out at just over 20% THC. Meanwhile, veganically grown strains (using Kyle Kushman’s Vegamatrix line) have made The List seven times over the course of those five years.

Reaching 32.13% THC, the Chem has achieved what most of us thought was impossible and leaves us asking one basic question: Just how high can a flower go in terms of potency? The Brotherhood was another organically grown entry that hit nearly 28% THC. Propagated from seed, her lineage stacks up like this: (Willie’s Wonder x Grape Krush) x (Bubba ’91 x The White).

Strongest Weed Strains: Top 20 – Honest Marijuana
Strongest Weed Strains: Top 20We often think of progress in terms of technology — faster wi-fi, increased storage capacity, higher pixel count, smaller processors.

The Problem with the Current High Potency THC Marijuana …
The Problem with the Current High Potency THC Marijuana from the Perspective of an Addiction PsychiatristAdvocates for the legalization of medical and retail marijuana are quick to point out all the possible benefits that a community might see from such a venture. These include increased jobs, increased tax revenue, possible medical benefits and they advertise it as “safe” and “healthy” and “organic.” They utilize the words “cannabis” and “marijuana” for everything without differentiating between the different forms of cannabis that can have very different effects on the mind and body.Many people who have voted for legalization thought they were talking about the marijuana of the 1960s to 1980s when the THC content was less than 2%. However, without any clear guidelines or regulations from government officials, the cannabis industry has taken a page from the tobacco and alcohol industries’ play book and developed strains of marijuana and concentrated marijuana products with much higher concentrations of THC, the psychoactive component that causes addiction. The more potent a drug is, the stronger the possibility of addiction and the more likely the person will continue to purchase and use the product.The active component in marijuana that people find so desirable was not really known until the 1960s when a research team in Israel found that after injecting THC into aggressive rhesus monkeys, they became calm and sedate.1 This team discovered that there was a receptor in the brain that fit THC like a glove so they named these receptors cannabinoid receptors. It was not until the 1990s that this same team discovered why we have these receptors in our brain.1 They discovered compounds produced by our bodies that fit into these receptors which they named anandamides, a Sanskrit word for “supreme joy.” These receptors are found all over the brain and are still called endocannabinoid receptors but that is not because they are meant for people to take in THC.The primary problem with the current available cannabis in dispensaries in Colorado is that the THC content is not like it used to be. Prior to the 1990s it was less than 2%. In the 1990s it grew to 4%, and between 1995 and 2015 there has been a 212% increase in THC content in the marijuana flower. In 2017 the most popular strains found in dispensaries in Colorado had a range of THC content from 17–28% such as found in the popular strain named “Girl Scout Cookie.”2 Sadly these plants producing high levels of THC are incapable of producing much CBD, the protective component of the plant so these strains have minimal CBD. For example the Girl Scout Cookie strain has only 0.09–0.2% CBD.The flower or leaves that are generally smoked or vaped are only one formulation. We now have concentrated THC products such as oil, shatter, dab, and edibles that have been able to get the THC concentration upwards of 95%. There is absolutely no research that indicates this level of THC is beneficial for any medical condition. The purpose of these products is to produce a high, and the increased potency makes them potentially more dangerous and more likely to result in addiction.Because there was initially no regulation on the edibles they have been made to look very similar to regular products that people consume such as chocolates, gummy bears, PopTarts etc. As a result there has been a significant increase in the accidental exposure/overdoses of children younger than nine in Colorado compared with the US at large.3 New regulations beginning in 2019 require that all cannabis packaging in the state of Colorado must have a universal “THC” symbol on the label with the written warning “Contains Marijuana.
