1 – Godfather OG (The World’s Strongest Marijuana Strain?)
According to High Times, Godfather OG is the most potent marijuana strain on the planet. This indica dominant hybrid is reported to have a THC content of over 34%! Since it is an activated THC value, there is a good chance that the figure is conservative.
Godfather OG is cultivated by California Herbal Remedies and is believed to be a cross of Cherry Pie, OG Kush, and Granddaddy Purps. With this information in hand, it is no surprise that Godfather OG is often referred to as the ‘Don of all Kush’ strains. Even a typical strain should have a THC of over 25%.Of course, strength means nothing without quality — and Godfather OG has absolutely no shortage of quality.
This strain has won the High Times Cannabis Cup for best indica strain in the past, and when you smoke the bud, it will hit you with an incredible cerebral high that soon results in a whole-body euphoria. Users tend to feel calm and happy, with the euphoric effects oozing over both mind and body. Godfather OG provides you with a feeling of total relaxation, and could ever render you immobile or couch-locked for the afternoon, such is its potency.
2 – Chemdawg (The Pungent Marijuana Strain)
Chemdawg previously held the record for highest THC content when it won the coveted Cannabis Cup title with a THC level of 32.13%. Cultivated by Next Harvest in Denver CO, it is one of the most mysterious marijuana strains. People know little about its genetics or history. However, rumor has it that Chemdawg is a cross of a Thai and Nepalese sativa.
Whatever its ancestral lineage, it should go without saying that Chemdawg is not for the newbie. It is an indica dominant hybrid (55%) renowned for its pungent scent. This aroma carries more than a hint of diesel. In fact, this strain is used to create Sour Diesel — another one of the world’s most popular (and potent) marijuana strains.
When you smoke Chemdawg, it will provide you with a wonderful cerebral high that is incredibly enjoyable — that is, once you know how to handle it!
The nugs have a powerful relaxing effect that is ideal for calming down a mind that tends to race, and furthermore, if you are stressed at work and need something to help you chill out, research shows that strains like Chemdawg are perfect because of their uplifting effects.
Moreover, it is also a strain conducive to creativity and has been a preferred favorite among artistic types for many, many years in California and the West Coast in general. Want to learn more about the Chemdawg Strain? Check out this comprehensive Chemdawg review.
3 – Irish Cream (This Marijuana Strain is the Real McCoy)
This is yet another case of “selectively breeding” to yield an exceptionally powerful marijuana strain. Mighty Irish Seeds developed Irish Cream. It is an indica and a crossbreed of Real McCoy and Cookies and Cream. The result is a strain that the company claims clocks in with an average THC content over 27%.
If you smoke this strain with the belief that it will taste like Bailey’s, though, you’re in for a disappointment as it offers classic, dank weed flavors instead. You will find that this bud offers the taste of fresh herbs and pine, and while it doesn’t taste quite like the Sweet Cream strain, it is nonetheless a pleasant experience.
Irish Cream is an extremely potent strain which means it could help with the relief of anxiety, depression, stress, and even chronic pain. The initial high is mostly cerebral, but soon you’ll feel happy, relaxed, and sociable all at once. Eventually, your body starts to feel the effects and you’ll begin to feel sedated and ready to hit the sack for a deep, naturally healthy night’s sleep. This is what we like to call a “carefree” strain, due to the fact that it is ideal for evening and night time use.
4 – White Tahoe Cookies (This Marijuana Strain is the New Kid on the Block)
This exciting new strain was initially grown by Kush for Breakfast and is a cross of The White, Girl Scout Cookies, and Tahoe OG, so the name of the hybrid became obvious to the creator. White Tahoe Cookies has become extremely popular on the West Coast, according to its breeders, and its THC content clocks in at over 27% — making it one of the world’s strongest as a whole.
This is an indica-dominant strain (roughly 70%) and is one of the most aesthetically-pleasing marijuana strains around. Archive Seed Bank is the distributor of White Tahoe Cookies. It is certainly worth trying if only so you can enjoy the sweet, flavorful notes with obvious OG undertones.
In terms of effects, it may shock you how quickly White Tahoe Cookies starts to hit the senses. Within minutes, you should feel euphoric, and your mind should become filled with great ideas because this strain is fantastic for creativity.
In fact, all it needs is a single toke to understand that you’re dealing with a potent monster of a strain.
Ultimately, you will feel a relaxing body buzz that turns into a feeling of sedation. The high sometimes lasts for hours. For this reason, make sure you’re safely wrapped up in bed. (And of course, this particular effect makes it one of our absolute favorites for insomnia and other sleep issues!)
5 – Strawberry Banana (The Marijuana Strain That Tastes Like Dessert)
This indica dominant hybrid (70%) is a cross of Crocket Banana Kush and Strawberry Bubblegum, and was developed by those crazy creative geniuses at Serious Seeds. It is a mainstay on the High Times ‘Strongest Strains on Earth’ list, selected three years in a row. On at least one phenotype of the strain (a specimen grown by Greenwolf LA & Green Country Rebellion), average THC levels of 31.62% were detected by the growers.
