Every year, weed gets higher … in THC, that is. Here are some weed strains known to deliver the highest amounts of everyone's favorite cannabinoid.
“Opening up the pre-packaged buds at home gave me an intense nosegasm. Sweet, fruity aromas jumped right out, with hints of diesel lingering long after; my mouth watered as a tart earthiness filled my nostrils. Despite the small amount I’d bought, all of the nugs were full and robust. Rich, amber trichomes cloaked the Stardawg’s light-green calyxes, giving them a yellowish hue, and the noticeable lack of stems made me smile. I couldn’t twist one up fast enough — and after a few drags, subtle tropical notes danced around my taste buds and a familiar earthy flavor stuck to the back of my tongue.”

“To my initial dismay, the entire recreational lineup had been bought from a wholesale grower because Mile High’s recreational crops weren’t ready yet. But there was good news: My budtender said the wholesaler was Kind Love, a Glendale medical dispensary that has a great reputation. So I asked her what strain was the hardest to keep on the shelf. She said the alpha of the lineup was White Fire OG — a thoroughbred of a strain born from Fire OG and The White genetics. The nugs on display at Mile High were a beautiful mixture of green, white, purple and orange; this love-at-first-sight cost $12.12 per gram after tax.”

“Not wasting any time, I quickly narrowed my posible choice to two very qualified candidates: Bubba OG, the indica-dominant equivalent of Jay Z and Beyoncé’s child; and Ogre Kush, a fruity strain with some iconic genetics of its own. Watching Shrek stoned on some Ogre sounded like a great way to fall asleep and kick-start an interesting dream, so I bought a half-eighth for $18 with the discount.”

“Don’t let Ingrid’s homely smell fool you. Burning this was like enjoying cheese and wine for dessert, and the knockout blow makes it an easy choice for insomnia or stress relief. With such strong and specific effects, my leftovers will be set aside for a rough day or when counting sheep just won’t cut it.”
“Blue OG is bred with Blueberry Moonshine, Blueberry and OG Kush genetics, making a slightly sativa-dominant hybrid that smells like a blueberry-banana-pineapple smoothie: simultaneously sweet, savory and sour. All of those fruit notes, combined with a crisp earthiness, made me want to jump inside Blue OG’s bottle and set up camp for a few days to soak it in, and bright, frosty trichomes glimmered in the sun as I admired the dense nug. Some of these beautiful Colorado buds tug at my heart as I grind them up, and Blue OG’s sweet-smelling cries were deeply felt.”
