Sometimes, when you’re shopping for cannabis, you want something relaxing and mellow. Other times, you want the strongest marijuana strain modern plant cultivars have to offer. If you find yourself in the second category, this post is for you. In it, we’re going to look at some of the strongest strains you can find at Ritual—the strain with the best, highest THC level. But, first, a recap of how THC works.
What is THC Content and Why Does it Affect Which Strain Makes You Highest?
THC is one of the main active ingredients in cannabis. Short for “delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol” (it’s a mouthful, we know), THC claims responsibility for cannabis’ psychoactive properties. Namely, THC provides sensations of both relaxation and euphoria. In other words, it’s the compound that makes you feel “high.”
As a result, strains with more THC will impart more psychoactive effects. Bear in mind, this may not be for everyone. If you’re a newer cannabis user, it’s a good idea to start with lower doses and lower THC ratios. If you’re a bit more experienced and you like the creativity, energy, focus, or ultimate couch lounging that high-THC strains can amplify, you’re probably seeking out the most powerful strains you can find. That’s where we come in.
Which Marijuana Strain is the Strongest: The 3 Best Strains of 2022
Curious about what strain of marijuana has the highest THC level of 2022? Check out our list of the most powerful strains you can find at Ritual this year.
OG Lime Killer by Curio Wellness
Looking for a high-grade, premium flower? Look no further. Curio Wellness’ OG Lime Killer clocks in at 30.3% THC. That makes it one of the strongest strains of marijuana that you can find.
In addition, OG Lime Killer’s Starkiller OG and OG Lemon Haze lineage places it firmly in the Sativa category. Sativas, which grow naturally around the world, has a reputation for being particularly euphoric strains. In addition, they may also be able to inspire creativity and spark focus.
Ice Cream Cake by SunMed Growers
Coming in second on our list of the strongest strains of marijuana is Ice Cream Cake by SunMed Growers. It’s actually nearly as strong as OG Lime Killer. At 30.07% THC, it’s barely a fraction of a percent below our strongest strain. However, that doesn’t mean it’s going to have the same effects.
In contrast to OG Lime Killer, Ice Cream Cake is not a Sativa. Instead, it’s a heavy-hitting Indica that traces its genetics to Gelato and Wedding Cake. As a result, Ice Cream Cake possesses a much more relaxing, borderline sedative high. It’s definitely best saved for evenings or lazy days without any responsibilities.
Star 91 by Nature’s Heritage
Claiming the third place on our list of the highest THC marijuana strains at Ritual is Star 91 by Nature’s Heritage. With a THC concentration of 29.68%, its potency is nothing to scoff at. With a diverse terpene profile—spearheaded by Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Limonene—its pungent, diesel-esque taste and fragrance are definitely memorable.
Short for Stardawg 91, this strain has some legendary parents: Stardawg and the notorious Chemdawg. That makes it a heavy Indica, much like Ice Cream Cake. However, its relaxing properties may be even more powerful than other fellow indicas. Prepare for ultimate relaxation, bordering on sleepiness. Think meditation sesh followed by bedtime.
