The World’s Best High THC Strains 2018

Every marijuana smoker knows about THC. It’s the main psychoactive cannabinoid in the marijuana plant that many are looking for.  Of course, the main thing smokers, vapers, and dabbers enjoy about high THC strains is that they will produce mind-blowing highs. Because THC is psychoactive, using a high THC strain can have you sitting on the couch lost in your own mind-bending thoughts or can have you giggling uncontrollably as you and your friends come up with high ideas, depending on the strain you use. But there are other benefits that these strains high in THC can also bring.

For those growing strains high in THC from marijuana seeds, they can also contribute to high resin production. This can be great for those that want to make hash, or just enjoy the super frosty look of their buds as they grow.

A strain high in THC can also be beneficial for medicinal users. Sometimes conditions can be so bad that medicinal patients find they have to use a lot of marijuana, hitting the bowl or joint several times in a very short space of time. And that can contribute to some unhealthy side effects, such as damaging the lungs and respiratory systems. High THC strains can help with this, as fewer tokes will need to be taken, but patients will still get the relief they need.

So, now that the benefits of high THC strains are understood, what strains are best when one is looking for high amounts of THC in their marijuana plants? For both medicinal and recreational use, these are the top ten strains high in THC in 2018.

Top 10 High THC Strains

 

Durban Poison

Durban Poison is a strain that combines two things many smokers love - a high THC content with a sativa strain that will give you all the energy you need (and likely even a little bit more) Durban Poison averages a THC content of around 23 percent, which is higher than most and will leave users with that energetic high they’re looking for.

NYC Diesel

NYC Diesel has a similar THC content to Durban Poison, coming in at around 22 percent. This high THC strain is also a sativa but instead of providing bounds of energy, it will take you to a place of deep peace and leave you feeling quite tranquil. Like its parent Sour Diesel, this one has a strong smell, which is good to know for those that will planting their marijuana seeds outdoors or just need to be discreet with their smoke.

ChemDawg

With the parent marijuana plants being Sour Diesel and OG Kush, you know you’re going to get a great smoke when you choose ChemDawg. And for those looking for high THC contents will definitely get it with this one, as it has a whopping 28.2 percent THC. And this one is all about that nice body high, so be prepared to become particularly in tune with everything.

Strawberry Banana

For those that prefer an indica smoke to a sativa, Strawberry Banana may just be the high THC strains you’ve been looking for. This strain tastes just like dessert, and that combined with the indica effects make it a perfect dessert smoke after dinner, and after a long day. While THC levels can sometimes be as high as 31.62 percent, most of these marijuana seeds fall at around 26 percent. And that’s still enough to keep you flying for some time.

Grandfather OG

If you haven’t heard yet of Grandfather OG, you may want to look into it. This indica strain has been touted as the world’s strongest marijuana strain, and that’s not surprising seeing as how its THC levels can reach up to 34 percent. But just like Strawberry Banana, those who are growing their own marijuana plants will likely see THC contents of about 25 percent - but it certainly shouldn’t be any less.

Dark Ghost Train

If Grandfather OG has any competition for the strongest weed in the world, it’s likely Dark Ghost Train. It’s even won many High Times awards for being just that. This high THC strain tops out at around 30 percent THC and just like Grandfather OG, should be at least 25 percent. And it’s sativa dominant so it will leave you giggly, happy, energetic, and social.

Gorilla Bomb

Being indica dominant, and a potent one at that, it’s a good idea not to have too much on your calendar for the day after smoking Gorilla Bomb. While some strains have been known to have up to 34 percent THC, they typically fall more towards the 24 to 29 percent range. Still, not too shabby when you need a strong smoke. It’s also been called one of the strongest strains known to man.

Purple Kush

Purple Kush is known as one of the best medicinal strains, in addition to having a whopping 27.5 percent THC. It tastes just like it looks - like refreshing purply grapes. But, it’s also leans heavily to the indica side so it’s best to clear your schedule for a nap two or three hours after smoking.

Jock Horror

Jock Horror is a sativa dominant plant that boasts more than just high THC levels of 24 percent. It drips with resin as the marijuana plant grows, which makes it perfect for those interested in extracting the resin to make incredibly potent hash or concentrates.

Ice Wreck

Anyone that knows just how potent Ice and Trainwreck can be will be familiar with the potency that Ice Wreck brings. Ice Wreck is a cross between those two famous marijuana plants and brings THC levels up to around 27 percent. Plus, this one is nearly a perfectly balanced hybrid, meaning that smokers will get both the head high, and then can settle in for a nice couch lock perfect for Netflix and chill.

Whichever type of marijuana strain you love, indica, sativa, or a hybrid of the two, there are high THC strains out there that will suit whatever you’re looking for.
