I've only got a bit of a roundabout answer for you: if you're looking for potent flower, you're gonna want to find strains that break the 30% THC mark. They're gonna be hard to find, though, because the market seems saturated with flower that's marked around the 19%-25% range.

The reason that benchmark isn't exactly fail-safe, however, is because THC is just one of many chemical components that tailor-make your high. Every weed strain (hell, every crop for that matter) is going to have a different chemical composition. Some will be high THC with very few other cannabinoids, some are going to be high in CBD with virtually no THC, some are going to be different kinds of THC than the OG delta 9.

Because of all the factors that go into creating your experience with every strain/crop, it's not always best to go for whichever product has the highest amount of THC. Don't get me wrong, it's a great rule of thumb! But there are scenarios where that product selection can come back to bite you in the ass.





I will say that I personally prefer GSC (Girl Scout Cookie) over almost everything else. The closest runner-up, in my opinion, was Purple Punch. I don't really shoot for strictly potency, though... I like a certain type of high, and I've learned a few strains that can consistently provide that type of high with low consumption.

CBG is so much better than CBD, it’s what I always expected CBD to be..

As for which strain is the strongest, hard question to answer, impossible really. It’s highly dependent on the grower and environmental conditions. A high THC strain grown wrong and not cured properly could be weaker than a lower THC strain grown and cured right.

Strains are something you really have to research to know what your talking about come time to hit the dispo. And IMO it’s not about potency so much as effect profiles. Forbidden Fruit is low THC but has a very worthwhile high due to the other cannabinoids and terpenes present.

Thank you so much for putting in the time to make a in depth response. You inspire me to be the same way.

I've often wondered the same thing man. I think you're really on the wrong track though as far as your desire for "the most potent bud". In my opinion, if "the most potent" is the only thing that matters to you, you might be happy with setting some of your most basic priorities in order as a person. Cannabis is a drug that expands, not one that narrows. It provides opportunities for nothing and opportunities for intense vision in my experience. You can spend hours thinking about everything, only to fnd you've been thining about nothing, but you're strangely rejuvenated.

What you need to be asking is

"What strain is best for watching Bridgerton with my girlfriend?"

"What strain is best for me and my dog on a hike (I get Luna high often and she's basically addicted to it)"

"What strain is going to give me the best introspection"

A lot of my experience in this community has been wanting to take "drug use" and wrap it up in a bow, draw a line underneath it and understand it. Regarding Opioids, I can pretty much do that. I understand dosages, relativity et cetera. With Cannabis, this is simply not possible. This used to actually piss me off, as someone who love raw knowledge more than sex or violence. Now, I've come to enjoy the fact that there is so much out there to discover about the myriad nuances of the plant/human relationship.

When I hear people at the dispensary being like "hey, what's the highest THC for the price"? I feel them 100%. It's not cheap, they want the best for the price, but it doesn't work like that. I was once like them so I totally understand their struggle.

In short, looking for "the most potent" isn't the objective. The true goal is being comfortable knowing you'll never be able to put the knowledge under your thumb. Don't struggle against that riptide brotha, just let it rock you back to shore.

CBG content? many think its all about the highest THC but you get the right Ratio and some CBG in there its hella relaxing and enjoyable
Can someone please teach me about bud? I clearly know so little and I hate it man. I'm gonna do my own reading, but in your guys' opinion:

What is this CBG?

How is it related to CBD?

Why do I not know what it is?

:(

CBG is just another Cannabinoid, just like THC and CBD , it has certain properties such as help with sleep and relaxation

CBG, cannabigerol, is just another minor cannabinoid. Strains and concentrates high in CBG are good for relaxing the body, nausea and sleep. I’d say it’s one of my favorite minor cannabinoids, it doesn’t seem to interfere with THC’s effects quite like CBD can at too high of concentrations.

It’s becoming more common to see CBG amounts listed in rec state dispensaries. Helped me a ton during chemo, the few carts I had with decent CBG levels really kept me going.
