Strongest Strains To Look Forward To So Far In 2018

No matter where I am or where I go, someone is always asking what the strongest cannabis strains are.  Times have definently changed and the Cannabis world is evolving rapidly.

Before deciding on what topic I wanted to write about today, I asked my dad what marijuana was like when he was in his 20’s. He looked at me and laughed saying “Compared to now? Ditch weed was good weed.” I was shocked. I knew it was bad, but not that bad! That simple sentence my dad had said just puts things into perspective, how much the cannabis community has changed.. For the better at that! So let’s jump into it!

Upon doing some research, I found a great article in High Times, explaining the strongest cannabis strain of 2015: Hey Dave with a whopping 24% THC levelmaking it the strongest Cannabis strain in 2015. Hey Dave is an indica-dominant cross of Afghani OG Kush and Casey Jones.

Fast Forward three years to March, 2018 just the start of the year and we already have the top strongest cannabis strains of 2018: Gorilla Glue. Gorilla Glue is already one of the strongest strains known to man, and when crossed with the powerful THC bomb strain, the result is a beautiful, high-impact bud known as Gorilla Bomb. This Indica based strain has a THC level of 35%. Gorilla Glue has even some of the newest growers growing plants with 25-29% THC.

 

With strong cannabis strains like this so close to the start of the year, these Cannabis connoisseurs have a something to look forward to this year with some of the strongest cannabis strains to come in near future of 2018.

Here are the top  5 Cannabis strains to be excited about this year:

I’m not clairvoyant and I don’t have a crystal ball, so ultimately I can’t predict which strains growers will decide to grow in 2018. But recently I’ve come across some amazing genetics that I’m pretty excited about. These are the five strains I’ll be on the hunt for in 2018. Keep an eye out for these up-and-coming genetics, as some might make an appearance on your local dispensary menu. Others, however, may never make it beyond their exclusive Cannabis Cup showing, perhaps too good to share.

 

Strain #1: White Tahoe Cookies

Already available up and down the West Coast and beyond thanks to some of the most respected farms, White Tahoe Cookies–bred by Kush4Breakfast– is a complex hybrid that combines genetics from The White, Tahoe OG, and GSC. I appreciate all three of these strains individually, and the combination makes for an intriguing trifecta of citrus, skunk, and musky pine aromas. The flowers express a thick frosting of trichomes thanks to The White’s genetic influence. Its soaring euphoria and deep relaxation can be attributed to its Tahoe OG lineage, while the Cookies component adds a unique toughness to the sweet, earthy terpene profile.

 

Strain #2: Mimosa

A beautiful bud with shimmering trichomes that sparkle in the sunlight, Mimosa looks as good as she smells. A great strain for hash makers, I’d be hard pressed to pass up any solventless hash that features Mimosa’s terpene profile. Mimosa is bred Symbiotic Genetics and is a strong hybrid of Clementine and Purple Punch.This strain presents itself with several exotic and fruity phenotypes. The Clementine influence brings a heavy orange citrus note that is true to its Tangie lineage, and the Purple Punch lends some sweet berry flavoring and, in some cases, a hint of color to Mimosa’s buds.

 

Strain #3: Tina

She’s colorful, potent, high in THC, and smells like jet fuel. If you’re going for a Kush, this is the mother of all Kushes. All the hard work paid off because Exotic Genetix won Best Indica with Tina at the 2017 High Times SoCal Harvest Cup. Exotic Genetix is one of my favorite breeders, and Tina is one of their newest creations. Tina is a heavy-hitting, award-winning indica with an exceptionally frosty appearance. I’m excited to taste this strain because I know the Exotic team always puts a lot of passion behind their breeding projects and their internal quality standards to make sure that they are only releasing the best genetics. According to Mike of Exotic Genetix.
