What are the strongest cannabis strains?

Bailey Rahn April 6, 2020

Looking for a weed strain that will challenge your tolerance or stand up to stubborn medical symptoms? Readers ask us all the time which strains are the most potent, and while that depends on a variety of factors from how it was grown to the quality of genetics, we’ve put together a list of strains that have a reputation for heavy-handed euphoria.

While THC is the main driver of potency in weed, it’s important to understand the role terpenes may play in enhancing and shaping the strain’s high. Terpenes like myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene refer to aromatic compounds that lend cannabis its unique array of smells, and a cannabis strain rich in both terpenes and THC often delivers a more remarkable experience than a product that lacks chemical diversity.

Very surprised! I thought this is a shot in the dark ordering online, so wasn't sure how the transaction would go. Pleasantly surprised at how smooth the whole process was! This business are very professional and efficient. Would most definitely use them again and have no issue recommending them to others. Definitely 5 stars.

If you’re thinking twice about ordering from here don’t even! The prices are unbeatable and for anyone saying the buds are dry just throw them on a towel on the counter and then run the shower for about 15-20 mins as hot as it can get and close the doors, this does the trick every time and makes the bud burn a lot slower(had to do this with AC diesel). Favorite strain so far has to be Casino Cookies or Paradise og they are identical to the real thing!

They really have stepped up their game. They now throw in a 2 way humidity control Boveda pack in the bag. Keeps the flower fresh! Hope they keep using the Boveda packs going forward.
