Top Picks — High THC Strains
With so many strains of cannabis available, you’re probably wondering what to make of the percentages used to label each one. The THC percentage indicates the concentration of THC that the product contains per gram. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Usually, the higher in THC your product is, the faster and more intensely you will feel the “head high” and analgesic effects (pain relieving, appetite stimulating, etc.). Here are our favorite high-THC strains of marijuana:

THC: Is The More The Merrier?
Remember that “stronger” isn’t always the same thing as “better.” Taking in a higher amount of THC than you are used to increases your likelihood of experiencing some of the unpleasant side effects.
Anxiety is the most common side effect of THC. Each strain contains its own unique terpene profile, which is why there is often so much variation in their taste and smell. The terpenes present in the strain you choose will also play a key role in your experience. Certain terpenes can exacerbate feelings of anxiety.
It may take longer for you to feel the effects of a flower lower in THC, but this may also give you more of an opportunity to truly enjoy its benefits without getting too high for your comfort.
