The Highest Percentage of THC Found Today

Our fascination with the cannabis plant in recent years has made growers and producers work tirelessly to develop new phenotypes and crossbreds that are higher and higher in THC levels. 

Starting back in the 60s and 70s when THC levels were rarely going over the 5% mark, the cannabis legal industry is averaging around 16% THC now, with ultra-premium strains topping up just over 30% THC level. Those high-end strains aren’t for everyone and need to be consumed with caution. But we live in a capitalistic market where the supply will come if the demand is there. 

If you are one of those weed connoisseurs who enjoy the strong sedative effects of high-THC strains, we’ve put together a shortlist of some of the best ones available today.

 

What is THC? 

Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is a chemical compound found in its most significant concentration within the plant’s buds. More specifically, THC is primarily found in the sticky resin and the light-coloured hair called trichomes. 

Trichomes are mostly found on the small sugar leaves and the stems of the female’s plant buds. THC, amongst hundreds of other compounds, is what gives consumers the ‘high’ feeling.

Cannabinoids, such as THC, interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and central nervous system, which are part of the endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids can help alleviate the effects of many ailments such as:

  • Insomnia

  • Anxiety 

  • Muscle spasticity

  • Seizures

Examples of High THC% Strains

Royal Gorilla - THC 25% - CBD 1%
An Indica- dominant hybrid, Royal Gorilla is a cross between the classic Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister and Chocolate Diesel. With THC levels reaching over 25%, Royal Gorilla is considered a heavy-hitter. 


Two breeders from the USA, Lone Watie and Joesy Whales created the strain after the Whale’s Chem Sis plants hermied by accident and pollinated with his Sour Dubb. Being a problem for other breeders, Watie decided to keep the bad seeds and grow them, leading to one of the most spectacular strains, Royal Gorilla. Try out Royal Gorilla from WCMCD.

 

Green Gelato - THC 27% - CBD 0.3%
Green Gelato is a mix of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet. With a THC level of 27%, this strain will boost energy with a touch of relaxation that might put you to sleep at the later stage of the high.


Green Gelato has dense green-coloured buds covered in resin, making it a very sticky strain to roll. Green Gelato is a preferred strain by people with chronic pain conditions. Check out Laughing Buda for their Green Gelato.

 

Apple Fritter - THC 32% - CBD 0.3%
Apple Fritter is a hybrid strain made from crossing Sour Apple and Animal Cookies. Extremely popular in California, Apple Fritter has a light dust of trichomes and bright orange pistils. The name comes from its taste resembling the sweet pastry. 


As one of the most potent strains ever made topping at over 32% THC,  use this strain with caution. To try this potent strain, check out Barrie Pot for Apple Fritter.

 

Jungle Cake  - THC 32% - CBD 0.2%
Jungle Cake is a cross between Wedding Cake and White Fire. This 50/50 hybrid is identified as having small and dense nugs, red pistils, and clear trichomes coating. 


Smoking Jungle Cake can be described as a slow creeping head high and morphs into a whole-body high with heavy sedative effects. If you are interested in trying this potent strain, head over to Pronto Delivery Services for their incredible Jungle Cake.

 

Godfather OG - THC 34% - CBD 0.1%
This 60% Indica-dominant strain is a very popular Southern California Indica. Winner of the 2013 reputable High Times Cannabis Cup for Best Indica.

Many growers eventually came up with their own version of Godfather OG nowadays, trying to ride the hype of its popularity, but the first iteration came from a cross between Alpha OG and XXX OG.

Godfather OG is characterized by classic heavy Indicas looks with deep purples, thick coatings of trichomes and densely packed nugs. 

Nothing out of the ordinary for the smell and taste; pine and earthy notes as it is often the case with true Indicas. To the uneducated out there, use this strain with caution as it can quite literally knock you down on your ass, one of the strongest highs out there. 


Very popular in the medical patients’ community for its sedative effect. Many reports claim the strain is very good at relieving stress and anxiety, partly due to the heavy sedation it procures at the correct dose. One of the best examples of strains described as a full-body high.

 

Going to try out some of these strains? Get your local Toronto Weed delivery company to drop some off for you. Alternatively, Go into your local Toronto Dispensary and see what they have in stock.
