There is a thought that only pure THC strains, like the girl scout cookies types, can be considered strong and effective. However, that is not true. Cannabidiol does not make you feel high, that is right, but its absence or low content can make the high extremely aggressive and even dangerous due to its enormous amount of side effects that include red eyes, paranoia, tachycardia, and even panic attacks. So your joy from smoking weed will be 100% ruined. Besides the CBD level, you should also take into account the terpene profile of the strain, which can improve the effectiveness of a high-THC strain by increasing its THC effect. To our great disappointment, it is too difficult to measure exactly how much the terpenes increase the high effects of the strain, therefore, the majority of high strains are considered potent on the base of the THC level.
What happens when you make a toke of a potent strain?
THC interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors that are responsible for relaxation and the feeling of euphoria. The potency of cannabis also has an influence on the length of the effect. Usually, after the first puff, the high effect comes in two seconds and lasts for a couple of hours. But in fact, the tetrahydrocannabinol stays in the human body for much longer.
Now it is time to have a look at the most potent strains, but before we do that, remember that everyone has a different weed tolerance.
