Irish Cream is an extremely potent strain which means it could help with the relief of anxiety, depression, stress, and even chronic pain. The initial high is mostly cerebral, but soon you’ll feel happy, relaxed, and sociable all at once. Eventually, your body starts to feel the effects and you’ll begin to feel sedated and ready to hit the sack for a deep, naturally healthy night’s sleep. This is what we like to call a “carefree” strain, due to the fact that it is ideal for evening and night time use.
If you smoke this strain with the belief that it will taste like Bailey’s, though, you’re in for a disappointment as it offers classic, dank weed flavors instead. You will find that this bud offers the taste of fresh herbs and pine, and while it doesn’t taste quite like the Sweet Cream strain, it is nonetheless a pleasant experience.
Naturally, you can expect this list to change regularly year-by-year. Growers find new and improved ways to boost marijuana potency frequently. Realistically, how long will it be before a strain appears that produces buds with 40% THC? Will 2021 be the year? We can’t wait to find out!
3 – Irish Cream (This Marijuana Strain is the Real McCoy)
Don’t let the “tropical” name of Strawberry Banana fool you; with max THC levels pushing 32%, it is an expert-only bud that packs a serious punch.
Strawberry Banana begins with a cerebral head high, and ensures you feel relaxed and focused throughout the entirety of the experience. Eventually, you will feel sedated and possibly even couch-locked. This is a fantastic strain to handle chronic pain, and according to certain studies , strains like Strawberry Banana are also suitable for users suffering from depression, PTSD, and insomnia.
Whatever strain you decide to try, remember that the terms ‘strong’ and ‘potent’ don’t always have to mean ‘high-quality.’ We have worked hard to find (what we expect to be) the world’s most powerful marijuana strains for 2021. These strains lead the way today in terms of a kick-ass high. Plus these strains can lead to a memorable and enjoyable experience for many years to come.
If you believe the annual reports from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, weed is getting stronger. Certainly, if you measure potency by THC content, marijuana is unquestionably becoming more potent. It was even noticeable when the average THC content of weed in 2003 was 6.4%, compared to just 0.72% in 1976.
Fat Banana is the offspring of famed parent strains Banana and OG Kush. Naturally, she’s loaded with flavour and endowed with some serious potency. This indica-dominant cross features 70% indica genetics and 30% sativa. Her dense and resinous buds produce a titanic THC content of 25%. This cultivar delivers a tropical-flavoured body high that releases an internal pressure valve. Stress and anxiety melt away, and a sense of euphoria takes hold. Her fruity tastes make this strain a great addition to edibles such as banana bread and brownies.
Fat Banana won’t keep you waiting. She puts out a canopy of resinous buds a mere 7–8 weeks after initiating flowering. Indoor plants provide a yield of up to 400g/m² and won’t exceed 140cm in height. Plants grown outdoors offer strong returns of 450–500g/plant and ascend to a height of 200cm. Outdoor plants will be ready to trim during late September.
Purple Queen has a lengthy flowering period of 9–11 weeks, but the weight of her yield is worth it. Indoor plants produce up to 500g/m² and grow to heights of 80–120cm. Plants grown outdoors offer a mighty harvest of 700g/plant, grow to 210cm, and will be ready to harvest during October.
Legendary OG Punch
Sweet ZZ is a highly productive strain with a relatively fast flowering time of 7–9 weeks. Grown indoors, she’ll pump out up to 600g/m² while advancing to a height of 140cm. Outdoor plants grown in containers or garden beds will reward with up to 550g/plant and peak at a height of 200cm. Expect to harvest outdoor plants during late September.
Purple Queen is a sight to behold. This royal specimen dominates the landscape in grow rooms and gardens. Her eye-catching colas feature a bright green core and expand out into shades of deep purple. Her fan leaves—radiating bright pink—are equally as alluring. This unique colour is thanks to flavonoids known as anthocyanins, which produce a spectrum of pigments from red to black. Purple Queen is an indica-dominant specimen, the progeny of Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani. She’s ultimately a strain for the evenings, when her sedating effects can fully take hold. Her multicoloured flowers produce a THC content of 22% and a terpene profile defined by notes of citrus.
Many cannabis users select strains based on potency alone. But the allure of Sweet ZZ goes beyond psychoactive effect. Her tall, flavoursome colas leave smokers coming back again and again. She inherited her sweet and fruity punch from parent strains Grape Ape and Grapefruit. Every joint toke and bong hit sends a surge of citrus over the taste buds. Sweet ZZ is an indica-dominant cultivar that achieves THC levels of 22%. Her soothing body high is fast-acting and lingers for hours.
If you’re growing feminized seeds in 2021, you can’t miss out on these elite genetics. Whether you like to grow indoors within tents or outdoors under the sun, these plants will produce impressive yields, tantalising flavours, and concentrated cannabinoid profiles every time—without the risk of males. Enjoy sky-high levels of THC!
Crossing GMO to Legend OG reinvigorates the OG line and makes it beefier. Give the thicc strain some love next time you see it.
Fields and fields of cakes get the chop this October—mostly Wedding Cake and Ice Cream Cake. So icy, so sweet, and so powerful, Wedding Cake kicked off a cake breeding frenzy that yielded the richer, gassier Lava Cake. Now, Lemon Lava adds a citrusy finish.
Forbidden Lemon Glue
Look closely for these small, white, dense, purplish Runtz nugs—and don’t pay top dollar for anything weathered, brown or green.
If Cookies-based Gelato is the older, more established strain, then Zkittlez is the newer kid on the block—the Kendrick Lamar to a Dr. Dre, if you will. Naturally, you pair old and new, and remix, first into Runtz and now into the Runtz crosses, among them, White Runtz.
For the old school throwback fans, Skunk 1 has delivered high-THC, high-terpene, mind-warping effects since London in the late ‘80s. But skunk also seems to self-limit its population. The racey, edgy 80% sativa is stinky as all get-out—enough to get you popped in prohibition states.
