No one stoner is the same. Each individual is unique in their exposure and experience with marijuana. Some people have very high tolerances starting out and others who have been avid users for years can still find themselves with a low tolerance to using cannabis products. When a typical person thinks about smoking weed, usually they are going to agree that the higher the THC, the better the weed.

When someone is just beginning to use marijuana, either recreationally or medically, typically they do not start out right away with the higher THC strains. The strongest marijuana strain found by Leafly is Chiquita Banana. The average THC level in this strain is a staggering 33 percent. This is a crossbred strain made from several already-potent parent flowers. Beginners should not be using strains like Chiquita Banana, unless they are willing to risk being turned off from marijuana after just one use. It is important for anyone using marijuana for the first time to make sure they are getting their weed from a reputable source, that they in a safe environment, and that they are truly ready.

Some low THC strains include Fast Eddy, Euphoria, Painkiller XL, Special Kush #1, and Easy Bud. According to Leafly, the best THC strains for beginners include Harlequin, Sour Tsunami, Pennywise, ACDC, Cannatonic, Dancehall, Aliens on Moonshine, Blue Dream, Chernobyl, Plushberry, and Maui Wowie.  

For those who find that the lower THC strains just aren’t doing the job like they used to, high THC concentrated strains are a great place to turn to. Typically at a dispensary, most strains will be upwards of 20-25 percent. Godfather OG is an extremely popular and widely used strain of weed that has very high THC levels. Wikileaf reports that Godfather OG has been tested at levels as high as 29 percent, and most local dispensaries will have strains reaching 25 percent.


Another one of the strongest weed strains on the market in 2019 is Chem Dawg, which has levels of THC reaching 33.56 percent. Since this is such a strong strain of weed, it is most typically used by medical patients. It can be used to treat stress, anxiety, PTSD, and even migraines. Some other high strains that are recommended for medical marijuana patients include Laughing Buddha, Strawberry Lemonade, Phantom OG, Purple Punch Auto, Glookies, and Pineapple Haze.

The highest weed strains are not only for medical use. Many recreational marijuana users use the highest THC strains of marijuana on a daily basis when they have found their tolerance is too high for low-THC weed. These strains are found to be, Irish Cream and White Tahoe Cookies both reaching a THC level of 27 percent, and Strawberry Banana at 31.62 percent.

It is easy to ask any employee at a dispensary which weed has the highest THC content, and depending on their knowledge, they may give you a wide variety of strains. When you know what you are looking for it makes it a lot easier to make your visit to a dispensary quick and easy. Make sure you stay informed of the highest THC marijuana strains so that you can get the best high you can buy.
