For every stoner, the quest to find the ultimate strain is an ongoing endeavor and as ‘cannabis cultivation’ becomes more acute and “sciency”, we’re finally able to create a list of the top strongest strains on the planet based on their THC density.
With things like Wax and Tinctures providing us with some truly high THC rates, some people are still big fans of smoking ‘tree’. This is why we have compiled this list of the Top Strongest Weed Strains to help you with your quest for the powerful “sticky icky” that will definitely make your mind go “whicky.” So without any further delay, let’s jump into the Top 7 Strongest Weed Strains in the world right now!
Critical Neville Haze (23.5% THC)
Critical Neville Haze is a perfect combination of Critical Mass and Neville Haze. These infamous strains synergistically work together to provide a strain that has some amazing haze qualities as well as the speed in terms of cultivation leaning more to the ‘indica side of life’. In other words, while it still possesses haze characteristics, it’s growth time is shorter and is a lot less complex to grow indoors. This makes it a perfect potent strain for medium-skilled growers.
One of the biggest issues growers have with this is “height” however with proper topping techniques, you can definitely produce a sizeable amount of bud at the end of the 70 day cultivation period. With piney notes and a menthol-like aroma, this plant will keep you in the clouds for a long time while giving you that energetic boost associated with sativa strains. Great for a day time strain and will help you with creativity, energy and all that good stuff.
Amnesia Haze (<25% THC)
To pinpoint the THC-count of Amnesia Haze is quite difficult but we have seen strains reach the 25% marker. While this Sativa dominant does produce the energetic and creative side-effect typically found in Sativa strains, it could also cause a THC overload in ‘newbie smokers’. What does that mean?
For starters, if you typically have trouble finding your keys, smoking this strain will make you forget the concept of keys all together. Okay, maybe I’m slightly exaggerating the effect, but the word “Amnesia” does the strain justice. Some people even feel that this strain borderlines “psychedelia” and while I won’t go that far, it is definitely an intense ride that is highly enjoyable from onset to when it brings you back to reality.
Durban Poison (25.5% THC)
From Sunny South Africa this infamous strain is a pure sativa that will get you funky-fresh in no time! If we were to relate this strain to coffee, this would be the ‘double-shot espresso’ of cannabis. A quick onset and a powerful high makes this landrace sativa a definite favorite worldwide. The taste profile is also highly enjoyable and will definitely want you to go outside and enjoy some physical activity.
If you like concerts or parties, definitely get your hands on some Durban Poison and you’ll quickly understand that how social you can truly be.
Chernobyl (<30% THC)
Are you ready for a meltdown? Chernobyl is a cross between three strains (Trainwreck, Jack the Ripper and Trinity) This TGA Genetics brainchild is a Sativa dominant hybrid that has become quite popular in many places around the world.
The overall ‘feeling’ of this strain will paint a smile from ear to ear on your face. It’s very uplifting and definitely will take you to the next level. While for the most part the THC count will hover in the mid 20% range, some growers have been able to increase the count to 30%. This is precisely why we have this in the 4th position in our list.
A favorite by many dispensaries, you should definitely check out Chernobyl and see for yourself. Just take it easy, because it can be a definite trip.
Y Griega (28% THC)
Some people call this simply “Y” and while some of you might be asking, why is this in the 3rd spot on our list when Chernobyl can reach up to 30%? Well, for starters, “Y” delivers consistently in the high 20% range, whereas Chernobyl usually has a bit lower THC on a consistent level.
Being 80% sativa, you can expect to be energized and delight in the sweet aroma and taste of the strain. With lots of resin, this is also a perfect strain to turn into hash or even oils. Growing this powerhouse will take roughly 3 months from seed to harvest and additionally a month of curing to get the best out of the strain. The yield is also very significant. You can thank the 20% Indica undertones for that. This is definitely something you’ll want to have in your collection so ask your dispensary if they have some “Y” in stock!
Satori (28% THC)
This 50/50 hybrid is the perfect blend between indica and sativa. It’s a very versatile strain that can help with giving you a deep body high, while keeping your mind active and energetic. With a flowering period of roughly 9-10 weeks, you can crop out typically a month or so prior to most sativa strains and the yield is typically very robust.
You’ll see plenty of crystals scattered over the buds and your fingers will definitely be sticky after handling this strain. We have found that making hash out of Satori is a delight and will also render a significant yield.
If you’re looking for a general buzz in both the mind and the body, then definitely ask for Satori in your next dispensary visit.
Bruce Banner (29% THC)
If Bruce Banner smoked Bruce Banner…we’d probably never see the Hulk come out and play! This mix of OG Kush and Strawberry Haze produces some truly dense nugs and has a whopping 29% consistent THC count. Expect to feel the effects like a hurricane, with an insanely quick onset. You virtually become stoned as the smoke passes into your lungs.
It’s like a tidal wave of “stoned” that rushes over your body and keeps you high for a long time. The mix between body high and cerebral high is quite delicious and with a mix of “sweet undertones” and dominant “diesel” taste, you will never get enough of Bruce.
