The hype over THC is here to stay, and there’s a reason for this. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical compound within your bud that is responsible for getting you high. The higher the THC content in a strain, the higher you’ll feel from smoking it.
We’re not saying CBD – the other main component in cannabis – should be ignored entirely. There are plenty of reasons to focus on CBD, even though it doesn’t technically get you high. Medical findings on CBD are discovering more and more benefits every single day.
But if all you want is to feel good and high while also experiencing the medical marvels of marijuana, you’ll want to find a strain that is high in THC. Check out these 5 insanely high THC strains to try out in 2019.
Ghost Train Haze (Sativa)
GTH is a 70% sativa-dominant hybrid that will certainly get you stoned. In the past it has tested at a whopping 28% THC, but it tends to fluctuate around 25%. Since it is a sativa, you’ll experience an energetic and happy high that lasts for hours. Since THC is so high and CBD so low, anyone with anxiety should avoid Ghost Train Haze.
Girl Scout Cookies (Hybrid)
Depending on the strain of GSC you have, you might be smoking a hybrid with as much as 28% THC. This isn’t the norm – typically THC fluctuates between 20-25% – but no matter which GSC you are smoking you’ll definitely get high. Its parents of OG Kush and Durban Poison are both powerful strains, and they passed on the best of their genetics to Girl Scout Cookies.
Smoking some GSC will leave you feeling intensely relaxed in the body and euphoric in the mind. Medical patients experiencing pain from migraines, injury, arthritis, or nausea have shown tons of improvement after using Girl Scout Cookies.
Bruce Banner (Hybrid)
Named after the Marvel character who turns into the Incredible Hulk, the strain known as Bruce Banner is just as powerful. Since it is a hybrid, you’ll quickly notice both sativa and indica effects. The sativa side of Bruce Banner will expand your mind and enhance creativity. The indica, on the other hand, will completely relax your body and melt any pain or stress away.
Kosher Kush (Indica)
Kosher Kush has earned itself several awards in the cannabis community, and not just for its insanely high THC. It consistently tests over 21%, but has even reached an incredible 29% in the past. If you have your medical license to grow in Canada – remember to apply for your ACMPR renewal – consider growing some Kosher Kush.
This strain is fairly easy to grow, flowers quickly, and has a decent yield. Medical growers and smokers love it for its ability to completely relax the body and eventually lead to a deep sleep. For these reasons, it is perfect for treating pain and sleep disorders.
Gorilla Glue #4 (Hybrid)
GG4 continues to be a household name among weed smokers. You’ll feel happy, relaxed, and might find yourself “glued” to the couch. You can tell this strain is potent just by looking at the buds; they are covered in a thick sticky resin and give off a sour earthy aroma.
