It’s no secret that over the years, cannabis cultivation has become more intricate as different strains are paired together and used to create unique combinations or flavors, textures, and aromas. More people than before have access to either medicinal or mail order marijuana, which has made the scramble for newer, stronger strains even more hectic.
There have been plenty of lists in the past that outline the strong strains, but the list below includes newcomers to the game that even the most experienced cannabis user may have never heard of. Strains include:
- Cookies Gelato
- Royal Gorilla
- Green Gelato
- Triple G
In order to figure out how strong just each strain is, you have to do some research and thorough experimentation. There are several factors that can influence the concentration of THC in marijuana, such as the location it was grown, its conditions while being cultivated, and even the levels of carbon dioxide in the air.
No matter which method is chosen to grow marijuana, there will be positives and negatives with each approach. Genetics are also part of the equation and can be an excellent way to predict how much CBD and THC a plant will have as well as how it will taste and smell.
After all of the experimentation required to produce these unique strains, what about the top 5 strongest cannabis strains out there? Let’s dive into the list a little deeper.
If you’re a fan of either Girl Scout Cookies or the Gelato strain, you’ll love the mix created with Cookies Gelato. It has a very sweet flavor and its aroma is reminiscent of its parents. This strain has a high concentration of THC, usually around 28%, and is a strain that may be a bit too much for novices.
Royal Gorilla is a light green bud that can reach THC contents of up to 26%. It’s a hybrid strain that was discovered by accident, but you wouldn’t be able to tell due to its aromatic smell and delicious citrus flavoring.
Another contender stemming from the Gelato family, Green Gelato was cultivated in the state of California and offers a unique experience. It is the result of pairing Thin Mint Cookies with unset sherbet, creating a mix that is simply mouth-watering. It has fruity undertones topped with mint alongside a flavor that reminds you of a fresh cookie.
This strain hails from Colorado, another state in the United Stated known for their cannabis cultivation and experimentation. They’ve created many impressive hybrids, including Hulkberry. This strain is a mix of Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush, giving it a THC content that can get to over 28%.
Triple G is a strain that usually has a THC content in the range of 26 to 28% and is indica-dominant, relaxing the mind and body. Medicinal users will find that this strain relieves symptoms of insomnia and chronic pain and can also manage appetite.
These strains are all heavy hitters, so keep them in mind when choosing your next strain.
