Strongest Cannabis Strains: How To Choose

Are you looking for a weed strain that will test your tolerance level? The potency of the strain depends on different factors like how it was grown, the quality of genes, the extraction process, the level of THC and CBD, and more.

While THC is the main component of potency in weed, it’s also crucial to know the role terpenes may play in enhancing and shaping a strain’s high. Terpenes including caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene are the aromatic compounds that give cannabis its unique array of smells, and a weed strain that has the qualities of both THC and terpenes often provides a stronger high than a product that lacks chemical diversity.

We’re here to show you some of the most popular and strong weed strains with a reputation for heavy-handed euphoria, but besides these, there are many more out there. Whatever cannabis strain you choose, the thumb rule is “start low and go slow” to avoid any severe effects.
