The Most Potent Strains
New strain development is happening all the time, and more and more amazing potent strains are being created, with every one more different than the last. The more the whole process is investigated, the more potent new strains become, something nobody would have imagined a couple of years ago. This means that the most potent strains around today, will be normal everyday strains tomorrow.
In the United States of America, they’re competing against the rest of the world due to the fact that more and more states are legalizing marijuana, which means more and more seed banks are popping up on the market. Due to hundreds of seed banks having appeared suddenly, they’re all competing to offer the best, most potent strains, pushing them to investigate and improve. In the last 10 years more has been discovered about marijuana and cannabinoid properties than in the last 50. This is the reason why a simple strain can reach 30% THC, which would have been completely impossible 5 or 10 years ago.
This is the state that has the most banks due to the fact that it has the most breeders. Emperor Cookie Dough by Greenwolf L.A. is the clear winner here, getting up to 31.1% THC, which is absolutely amazing; it’s the second highest registered strain.
Here you’ll find a whole load of banks that specialize in intense and innovative flavors, but that doesn’t mean their strains are weak. Chiquita Banana by Utopia Farms has a spectacular taste, almost identical to actual bananas, and it has an incredible 27.16%.
Many important seed banks are dotted around Colorado, although the one that sticks out the most is Next Harvest, responsible for creating the absolutely mind-blowing Chem Dog. This particular version of the famous strain offers the highest THC levels known at this time, reaching a spectacular 32.13%, which represents a new, amazing record in THC; this is a strain that everyone is itching to get their hands on.
In this state you can find some extremely potent strains, although none of them are as amazing as what you can find in Colorado. The most potent strain here is Platinum OG by Herbal Solutions, which has a pretty amazing 27.1% THC content.
This is probably where everyone thinks the best strains are at, but in reality the banks here have quite normal THC rates; not bad but not even close to what you can find in the US. Kevie Skunk by St. Bess Ganja Growers has the highest, clocking in at 17.8%, which is good but not good enough to be up there with the big boys.
Marijuana’s medicinal uses are undeniable, and as time goes by more and more people are seeking out its benefits. To get the most out of this plant’s medicinal properties, you want a strain that isn’t high in THC. When a strain has a higher CBD ratio than THC, its effects are much more therapeutic, giving a more intense relaxation. The increase in CBD levels is absolutely amazing; a few years ago, 4% was a high CBD content. Nowadays the queen of this category is without a doubt Cannalope by IDK Farms, giving a CBD content of up to 20.8%. To finish this article off, we have a top 6 ranking of the highest CBD-rich strains.
