A frequent question Our budtenders across the country come across on a daily basis is what strain holds the most power. Although breeders worldwide are continuously introducing new strains, none have yet surpassed the potency of the most formidable one. This guide will expose the most potent strain in the world and also highlight a few noteworthy contenders.
The Godfather OG, aka the Don of all OGs or Don of all Kush, was named by High Times as the most potent marijuana strain on Earth thanks to its whopping THC content—34%. There are those who suggest that the mentioned estimate might even be on the conservative side. However, this strain has garnered accolades beyond that. In 2013, it earned the esteemed title of “Best Indica” at the Cannabis Cup, a prestigious recognition befitting the ultimate OG in its class.
Apart from its elevated THC levels that stimulate the endocannabinoid system, the Godfather strain offers a delightful flavor profile characterized by earthy tones and subtle sweetness, often reminiscent of grape, according to some users. These aromatic notes are also present, accompanied by a touch of spiciness that is absent in its taste profile.

What Are the Highest THC Strains?
Godfather OG is accompanied by an impressive lineup of other high-potency strains. What’s even better is that there is a flavor and aroma profile to suit every preference, spanning from sweet to skunky. Here are some of our top picks among high THC strains, which also happen to be our bestsellers:
This taste-filled strain comes from Serious Seeds, a marijuana breeder that crossed Strawberry Bubblegum and Crocket’s Banana Kush to make Strawberry Banana or Straw-nana. Despite being an indica-dominant hybrid, numerous cannabis enthusiasts have reported a more well-rounded hybrid experience when consuming this strain. The flavor profile of this particular strain is an enticing blend of sweet, freshly-picked strawberries and creamy banana, with its aroma perfectly matching its taste. However, it’s worth noting that its inclusion on this list is not solely based on its flavor; rather, it is celebrated for its impressive THC potency, ranging from 22% to 26%.
One might assume that out of the two strains named after the comic book character, Bruce Banner would be milder compared to the Incredible Hulk. However, that assumption would be incorrect. While Incredible Hulk has a moderate THC potency ranging from 15% to 19%, Bruce Banner takes it to a whole new level with a potency range of 24% to 29%. Additionally, Bruce Banner contains a small percentage of CBD (1%) and CBN (1%), although the presence of CBD does not diminish the powerful impact of THC in this strain. As a sativa-leaning strain, it offers a sweet flavor profile with underlying diesel notes both in taste and aroma. This makes it an enjoyable transitional strain, bridging the gap between super-sweet varieties like Sherbet and more pungent options like OG Kush.

Wedding Cake, also known as Pink Cookies, is an indica-dominant hybrid resulting from the beautiful crossing of Triangle Kush and Animal Mints. This strain’s terpene profile contributes to a tingling, delightful combination of flavors and aromas, as one would expect from a strain with “cake” in its name. It offers a delectable blend reminiscent of cookies and cherry turnovers, completely devoid of any skunkiness. The sweetness of this strain permeates from start to finish. Despite its potency, ranging from 25% to 27%, it is highly favored by medical marijuana patients, making it a sought-after choice for both therapeutic and recreational purposes.
This strain is an almost balanced hybrid, leaning slightly more towards the indica side by 5%. It serves as an excellent choice for cannabis consumers looking to enhance the potency of their premium flower. Despite having the lowest THC potency on this list at 19%, Chemdawg still falls within the higher range of moderate potency and deserves recognition. Regarding its history, not much is known about Chemdawg (perhaps its name is derived from its original creator?), but its popularity spans across the country. If you prefer strains without a sweet profile, this one is perfect for you. Both its flavor and aroma exude an earthy character, reminiscent of diesel fuel, resulting in a distinct pungency.
White Tahoe Cookies
For those familiar with different strains, you may recognize the parent strains of White Tahoe Cookies—The White, Tahoe OG, and a specific cultivar of Girl Scout Cookies. White Tahoe Cookies stands out as potentially the most potent strain on this list, boasting THC levels of 29%. Therefore, it is not the strain to start with if you are gradually increasing potency towards the Godfather strain. However, once your tolerance levels permit, it is definitely worth a try. This strain offers a delightful combination of sweetness and fruitiness, accompanied by a spicy, nutty aftertaste and scent that may remind you more of a granola bar than a cannabis strain.
Is Marijuana Getting Stronger?
Indeed, marijuana strains have undeniably become more potent over time. A study conducted by the University of Bath in England analyzed data from over 80,000 tested cannabis samples collected over the past five decades. These samples were sourced from various countries including the UK, France, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, New Zealand, and the United States. The researchers found that THC concentrations in cannabis flower have risen by 14% between 1970 and 2017. Additionally, the potency of THC in resin has seen an even more significant increase, rising by 24%. Interestingly, while THC potency has shown a notable rise, the potency of CBD has not exhibited a similar trend.
What Makes a Strain so Powerful?
THC, specifically delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the primary factor determining the potency of marijuana strains. Every strain contains THC to some extent, with levels varying from very low to as high as the Godfather strain. Recognizing that potency can drive sales, breeders and growers are inclined to focus on increasing THC levels in hybrid strains, suggesting that the current trend of higher THC potency will likely continue. It’s important to note that this discussion pertains to flower alone. However, it is widely known that concentrates can be even more potent than traditional cannabis buds.
