If you're like many potheads, then you're always looking for an herbal strain that will really, truly get you high. It's understandable. Cannabis has a lot of elements that offers both an enjoyable "high" and a multitude of medical benefits.
That's why potheads are always looking for the most potent strains they can find, and why Moon Rocks weed has become such a popular way to smoke weed, too.
Cannabis growers, too, are on the search for the strongest strains out there. Many of the newest strains hitting markets were cultivated over years, specifically to increase potency. Every year, growers show their most potent strains—and have them ranked.
Here are the strongest hybrid strains on Earth as of 2017, and why they leave the competition up in smoke.
It may sound like an innocent smoothie name, but don't be fooled! This sticky, gooey hybrid has been called one of the strongest hybrid strains to ever be created. It's so strong that you can literally see it glistening with THC-soaked resin when it hits sunlight.
This strain has THC levels that can be as high as 28.4 percent, and has become infamous for helping people get creative, mellow, and upbeat.
Chiquita Banana is a beautiful hybrid strain that packs a seriously powerful punch. Multiple groups have put it in the top five strongest hybrid strains in the world. Considering it's got a 33 percent THC hit, we can totally understand why.
This particular hybrid is a mix between OG Kush and Banana. So, with only a couple of puffs, it's safe to say that you'll be sailing on a delightfully euphoric ride.
Looking for a magical time? Blizzful Wizard is a new hybrid strain that you're going to want to look into. This purple-y strain is a mixture of Girl Scout Cookies and Captain's Cookies—two already impressively potent cannabis strains. It's also one of the most beautiful strains out there, in our opinion.
With a THC level as high as 28 percent, this is a hybrid strain that offers a peaceful, but potent punch. As of right now, it's considered to be one of the strongest hybrid strains in the world.
Gorilla Glue #4
Clocking in at 33 percent THC, Gorilla Glue #4 automatically ends up on almost all lists of the strongest hybrid strains on Earth. I mean, the high THC percentage speaks for itself, right?
What's amazing about this is that Gorilla Glue #4 was created by accident, when a Chem Sis plant pollinated a Sour Dubb plant. The result was a happy one, and it's now an award-winner that has been cited as one of the best pain management plants out there.
Girl Scout Cookies
Girl Scout Cookies are one of the strongest hybrid strains on Earth, and also one of the most popular. Known for being the base of Kurupt's Moon Rocks, this blend clocks in at around 28 percent THC. So, it's safe to say you'll end up in a pretty good haze.
If you're wondering what Girl Scout Cookies comes from, it's OG Kush and Durban Poison. This strain has become so popular, it's created offshoots like Thin Mint, too.
White Fire OG
Also known as "Wifi OG," this potent strain clocks in at around 30 percent THC—enough to make it onto most top five lists of the strongest hybrid strains on Earth.
Wifi OG is part Fire OG and part The White...but all good. Expect a strikingly mellow, cerebral kind of high that's ideal for just lazing about and thinking about the secrets of the world.
Bruce Banner #3
Mild-mannered and mellow at first glance, Bruce Banner #3 takes a cue from his Marvel superhero namesake and turns into a crazy green monster when lit. How powerful is this green? Officially, it's got a 28 percentage of THC in it, but anecdotally, it's higher.
Bruce Banner #3 is a mix between OG Kush (everyone's favorite!) and Strawberry Diesel. So, you can imagine what kind of a high it can offer during a smoke.
The OG #18
This unique strain was designed by Amsterdam's DNA Genetics, and was purposefully made into one of the strongest hybrid strains on Earth. Its THC content of up to 27 percent landed awards at Spannabis 2011, and made its OG Kush forefathers proud.
That being said, this isn't the kind of weed that'll make you sit in your chair without moving. Rather, it's a pleasantly calm but upbeat high.
You might have noticed that this hybrid was a parent of one of the other plants on this list—and it seems like the bud doesn't fall too far from the stem. The White's roots are kind of hazy at best, but what we do know is that certain phenotypes associated with it have clocked in as high as 29 percent in THC.
That being said, this slightly sedative, hazy strain is pretty hard to find. As such, it's pretty valuable on the market and is one of the rarest weed strains on this list.
King Tut is a bud fit for a king, and that's no joke. This incredibly fragrant weed is known for being a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain that can have as high as 30 percent THC readings.
Much like The White, it's hard to actually figure out what bred with what to create King Tut. However, its high-energy, fast-acting potency is undoubtable. That's why it's one of the strongest hybrid strains out there, and why it's an amazing strain.
Last, but definitely not least, is Godfather OG. This is the only cannabis strain to knock the competition out of the water when it comes to being the strongest of all the strongest hybrid strains. At around 34 percent THC, no other plant has managed to beat its potency.
We're not going to front, this makes most super weed strains seem weak. We'd be a little intimidated by Godfather OG, but if given the chance to smoke it, it's an offer we just couldn't refuse.
