Here is the list of strongest cannabis strains and we will also discuss how to choose them like a pro.

Did you know that the cannabis Sativa plant extracts for aromatherapy are now a trend? They are quite popular these days because their healing properties target mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Aromatherapies are for deep relaxation and to ease the pain. Cannabis was one of the sources of aromatherapy. It varies through their delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC ) levels.

The THC levels indicate how great cannabis strains can be. The higher the THC level, the strongest the cannabis strains can be. Different factors can affect the THC levels of cannabis. The location of the flower (indoor or outdoor set-up), the cultivation process (through soil gardening or hydroponics), potency levels, possible effects to the user, scents, tastes, its nutrients, the source of light, its temperature and humidity and lastly, the presence of carbon dioxide are some of the factors.

Potency level means the force or the power that can bring effects to the user. The potency level of cannabis and THC level have a direct relationship. This THC level also determines how powerful marijuana strains can become.

Cannabis and Its Uses

As a recap, cannabis comes from the cannabis Sativa plant. Cannabidiol (or CBD) is the chemical component of cannabis that releases psychological-related effects. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC) is the chemical compound that works to give soothing and relieving qualities.

    couple on the list already long held favorites, think I’m going to look for some ghost strains

    July 5, 2020 at 5:47 pm

    Always looking for high potency. I found anything mixed with gg#4 is usually a hit.

    The list of high potency strains is appreciated. However, I have found that strains with lower THC can give a good buzz as well. Harlequin and super Mario are 2 strains lower in THC. Because of the terpenes and the CBD These two compare well with Strains higher in THC. As for all the medical conditions cannabis can treat I am always surprised at the number of conditions it treats. My wife takes CBD oil for Fibromyalgia.

      Fellow Harlequin & Super Mario fan here. Got the Super Mario as freebie, was so impressed I ordered more as well as some of the Harlequin to try. Reminds me of weed in my younger days, nice mellow buzz. Next up is going to be decarbing some of the Super Mario to make edibles with. Very excited to try!

    Another great article, people should know the differences , as many just smoke and say I’m high. But there is so much more to it than that especially today with so many different strains to choose from. I know in my younger days it was much less to choose from like it was either Mexican, Colombian or Jamaican for the most part. It is amazing how far we have come and especially now that it is legal here in Canada.
