Not too long ago from a distant planet and not so far away, landrace strains on planet earth were all the rage. Today’s discerning cannabis connoisseurs are of a different breed than their hippie-era cannabinoid parents once were. However, seasoned smokers today are more demanding and reaching out for erratically stronger hybrid strains.
The Princess of the Dawn
The good news for most stoners today, hybrid strains are far more potent than their predecessors used to be. The ten that made my supreme list all have THC concentrates of 20% or more. Read on to discover more about the most potent hybrid cannabis strains known to phenotypes and humans on planet earth.
01. GORILLA GLUE #4
Gorilla Glue #4 is one of the most potent hybrids out there. Clocking in at an impressive 33% THC. Marijuana breeders created this strain by crossing all-time favorites Sour Dubb, Chem Sis, and Chocolate Diesel. While it is technically still a 50/50 hybrid, note that the effects of Gorilla Glue #4 express its indica lineage.
Expect a healthy body high along with an intense, blissful euphoria when choosing this strain. Seasoned tokers and growers alike report a high level of excellence and hybrid strain quality with original genetics of GG4.
02. GIRL SCOUT COOKIES
There’s a good chance that smokers out on the West Coast have heard about Girl Scout Cookies (GSC). It’s a California and worldwide favorite among serious pot smokers. When grown under the right conditions, GSC boasts THC levels up to 28% and offers a perfectly balanced and cosmic high. GSC provides a relaxing, euphoric recreational experience and helps to manage nausea and pain.
GSC is a great option and leaves many die-hard’s wanting more or stuck in their own thoughts for several minutes.
03. WEDDING CAKE
Wedding Cake’s genetics draw from GSC and Cherry Pie and have been known to end in divorce court, but this relative newcomer deserves a JOP all on its own. It’s a heavily indica-dominant hybrid known for its 25% average THC concentrations and its insane therapeutic value.
Medical marijuana patients love Wedding Cake for managing:
- Lack of appetite
- Mild depression
- Anxiety disorders
- And more
04. WHITE FIRE OG AKA WiFi OG
Anyone who has already tried The White and Fire OG will love these two popular strains’ impressive offspring. White Fire OG (WiFi OG) is an indica-dominant strain (60-40) that boasts THC levels of up to 30%. It’s perfect for daytime smoking and social events.
A universal word of warning: expect some couch-lock and short-term memory loss with this strain. White Fire OG is a heavy hitter by any cosmic standpoint and should not be taken lightly.
05. BRUCE BANNER
This potent sativa-dominant hybrid combines all the best characteristics of OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel. Like its namesake, these massive, hulk-green buds may seem harmless, but beware because they pack a whopping 28% THC.
Bruce Banner is an energizing, uplifting strain good for managing chronic fatigue and depression. However, too much of this powerful smoke can turn most humans green.
AK_47 is a hybrid with a lineage that dates back centuries, but it has only existed in its own right since breeders stabilized its genetics in stardate 1999. Those genetics include traits from multiple landrace strains, including South American sativa, Mexican sativa, and Afghani indica.
Don’t be fooled by this cannabis plant’s name. It can quickly knock first-time smokers out of the game, but AK_47 also provides a stimulating yet surprisingly mellow high. Expect initial euphoria followed by a deep state of relaxation and restful sedation.
07. BLISSFUL WIZARD
Here’s another strain derived from GSC. Unlike Wedding Cake, Blissful Wizard is genetically mutated with Captain’s Cookies, another very potent and ill strain. With THC levels that top out at 28%, this hybrid unearths plenty of power.
The high is subsequently mellower than most on my list, but despite this fact, it’s definitely worth any well-seasoned smoker’s time because the insane power of this heavenly and blissful smoke is blessed by the Cannabis Gods.
08. WHITE WIDOW
White Widow is a classic by any hybrid standard, but this strain is still pulling its cosmic weight and quite popular among Avengers at the International Space Station. Its grafted parent plants are a landrace sativa strain from Brazil and a South Indian indica known to suck the best of smokers into a proverbial black hole.
White Widow’s effects tend to be more toward the sativa side, so expect an uplifting and cerebral high coupled by a gravitational pull toward another cannabis dimension.
This strain isn’t just universally sativa, it’s more equivalent to the 60-40 sativa/indica ratio. Meaning, it still provides a relatively balanced high joined by a case of self-induced mental retardation. It offers a heavy dose of analgesic effects for medical marijuana patients who want the chronic pain relief benefits combined with couch-lock and ridiculous cottonmouth for those who dare to smoke the White Widow.
09. CHIQUITA BANANA
Earthlings simply are not going to scale a banana tree or have a freelance Jamaican roll them a cannabis blunt with dried banana leaves. There’s a reason Chiquita Banana was named a High Times strongest strain two years in a row. This love-child of OG Kush and Banana routinely obtains THC levels of 33% and higher depending on the breeder and earthly curing techniques involved.
Chiquita Banana produces sticky buds that are perfect for concentrate production. It’s also enough to knock most smokers down with just one toke in its natural form.
10. GODFATHER OG
Most marijuana connoisseurs consider Godfather OG the strongest of all of the hybrid strains and with much due respect. It gives every other option on my list a run for its money since it’s hard to beat Godfather OG’s 34% THC levels. Being the most potent hybrid strain on the distant planet earth rivals the best space nugs currently available on Titan.
For a supreme head high with a light-speed onset combined with an interstellar cerebral experience, this smoke is universally considered the bomb.
A UNIVERSAL LIGHT OF SMOKE FROM AFAR
Every strain that made my list deserves its galactic place on planet earth. However, on Saturn’s moon, Titan, Godfather OG is the rage of the cannabis machine, but don’t write the others off just yet without a universal light of smoke from afar because they’re all stronger than the average and mundane bud typically found on planet earth.
