In an effort to highlight some top-notch flowers, here are some of the strongest weed strains in the world.

Their most recent strain, the Strawberry Banana Kush Delta-8 flower, is a new Sativa and is sought after by consumers from all over the United States. This strain is known for its delicious flavor, reminiscent of ripened bananas and fresh strawberries.

Leaning indica-dominant, expect PsychOG to deliver a relaxed and tranquil cannabis experience. However, within minutes after the first inhalation, don’t be surprised if you find your mind overtaken by a dreamy cerebral quality.

A cross of Durban Poison and OG Kush, this psychoactive plant sets a new standard for contemporary hybrids, featuring up to 28 percent THC. Uplifting and euphoric, Girl Scout Cookies provides a soaring cerebral experience and a hefty amount of full-body relaxation. However, in large doses, this strain can cause sedation.

Some have described this as the “espresso of cannabis” due to the effect it has on leaving its smokers with high energy and a little extra pep in their step.
Durban Poison measures in at 23 percent THC. What to get the most flavor out of this flower? This strain would be a great fit for the Mighty Vaporizer providing clean and pure vapor.
Amnesia Haze is an old-school Sativa with some legs. While many sativa strains provide an introspective, clear-headed, and concentrated experience, Amnesia Haze truly takes after it’s namesake.
While this strain is lively and thought-provoking, it’s also quite hazy. Featuring up to 25 percent THC, this strain will send you off into a foggy (and perhaps even a little psychedelic) bliss.
Super Silver Haze is a quintessential Sativa strain. Popularized in the 1990s, this sativa hybrid has won the hearts of cannabis fans worldwide.
While Super Silver Haze is not often the strongest strain on the shelf, this bud has some impressive trichomes for sativa strains. When grown with expert love and care, Super Silver Haze can produce up to 24 and 25 percent THC, making it one of the strongest sativas around.
Cinderella 99 is not the most potent strain out there in terms of THC. But, this is certainly one strong Sativa-dominant hybrid. Often featuring up to 22% THC, this strain is still considered a potent bud. Cinderella 99 provides a very quick cerebral high and is nice and energizing.
While some strains on this list can be extremely racy or just a little too energetic, Cinderella 99 is a strong-armed strain that provides a slightly more mellow experience by comparison.
As the name might suggest, Laughing Buddha is one happy hybrid. Easy going, enjoyable, and energetic, this strain is jolly and can help you accomplish all of your daytime tasks. Similar to Cinderella 99, Laughing Buddha is not quite as potent as other strains on this list. However, this bud certainly provides a strong yet manageable sativa experience. Expect this strain to produce up to 23 percent THC with lots of care and nurturing.
It’s a challenge for the most dedicated stoners. How do you overcome a massive marijuana tolerance (short of a tolerance break, of course) and get high-school high again? It can be done. It’s just a matter of dosage. Having done, shall we say, a bit of research on the topic, here are the strongest weed products on the planet.
When it comes to which weed has the most THC, it’s actually not a strain at all. Moon rocks are top shelf buds dipped in hash oil and then covered in kief. Caviar is very similar, but it’s typically just top shelf herb covered in hash oil.
Needless to say, both moon rocks and caviar are some of the strongest buds on the planet and will have THC levels that are literally off the charts. They’ll cost a little (or a lot) extra, but you won’t regret having treated yourself.
They took last year’s Emerald Cup competition by storm. Crystalline THC-A diamonds, “the world’s strongest hash,” is a crystallized extract known as the most potent dab available. At upwards of 99 percent pure THC-A (which is the pre-activated form of THC, before heating), these potent little pieces of pot concentrate are not for the faint of heart. It’s helpful to think of THC-A crystals as the cannabis equivalent of Everclear. They’re among the strongest weed products around.
Flowers top out at between 25 and 30 percent THC. Concentrates like butane hash oil usually fall between 70 and 90 percent. But these glittering diamonds approach 100 percent pure THC. Now, keep in mind with crystalline THC-A, you only have one cannabinoid, not the entourage effect. Also, there are no terpenes, which affect and potentiate the high. So lots of people add a bit of THC-A diamonds to shatter or wax, pumping up the high.

California-based Clear Concentrate makes a dab with the minimalist, but meaningful, name: The Clear. The concentrate is 100 percent solvent-free and comes in 16 different flavors using natural terpenes. Clear Concentrate is one of the strongest weed products, at upwards of 90 percent THC.
MoonRocks have been all the rage over the past year. Kurupt’s Moonrock stole the show, made of a high-quality Girl Scout Cookies bud dipped in hash oil and coated with kief.
The resulting creations look like small meteorites that crumble into moon dust when you break them up. Now, MoonRocks have been taken to the next level with SunRocks.
When it comes to SunRocks vs. MoonRocks, which one is stronger?
SunRocks are MoonRocks’ more potent cousins. At least, according to Snoop Dogg. In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Snoop admitted that SunRocks were too strong for him. He explains,
Once the growers started to think about the THC level was what induces the high, it would be like 15 percent THC, 20 percent at the most. These fools with the MoonRock went to 60 percent THC. Sun Rocks went to 80 percent!
Due to their excellent flavor, powerful high, and overall potency, SunRocks have developed a buzz among cannabis consumers. Now, a couple of different producers are putting out a product called SunRocks and many more are attempting to make a version of their own. The big producers include California-based Big Tray Dee and Apollo Sun Rocks. Big Tray Dee’s SunRocks typically contain a top-shelf OG flower as a base, coated in a sticky layer of concentrate, and followed by a dusting of kief. SunRocks made from King Loui OG have tested with over 80 percent THC in the lab, making this infused flower extremely potent.
Apollo Sun Rocks are a little different. These buds are top shelf OG flowers infused with propane hash oil. Apollo’s goal was to create a solventless wax. The oil-dipped flowers are then coated in a layer of organic kief, creating a product similar to MoonRocks. In laboratory tests, Apollo’s SunRocks have tested as high as 61 percent THC. This percentage is close to Kurup’s MoonRock. An ounce of these glistening SunRock buds can sell for around $550.00 and a single gram goes for $25 and up.
Smoking SunRocks takes a little tenderness. These buds should not be placed in a grinder, as the device will butcher the concentrate and kief-laden buds. Instead, it’s recommended to pick SunRocks apart with your fingers. You can also use scissors to gently trim up some SunRocks bud before smoking.
For best results, SunRocks should be smoked in a pipe, bubbler, bong, or rolled into a blunt (check out the awesome Trailer Park Boys Bubbles bong). As Snoop Dogg suggests, a little SunRocks or MoonRocks goes a long way. So, it’s best to keep it light with this stuff. He told The Breakfast Club,
If I do it, I take it and sprinkle it into some regular weed. You can’t just do it by itself. It can’t just be MoonRock solo.
Though many experienced cannabis consumers these days are familiar with the rush of high THC dabs, SunRocks and MoonRocks provide a different experience. Taking a dab is similar to taking a quick shot of your favorite whiskey, while SunRock is more like a Long Island Ice Tea. Enjoying SunRock or MoonRock is equivalent to dabbing, smoking bud, and topping it off with powerful kief. All in all, both options make for a truly mind-bending herbal experience.
