What’s the highest THC strain out there at the moment?

Posted on June 16 2016

This is actually a harder question to answer than you would think. Surely it’s just a case of taking all of the strains available and testing them for THC content? Well, yes and no. The amount of THC in marijuana can be dependent on a few factors. The strain being naturally high in THC is of course one of them, but as seasoned growers will tell you, every plant grows differently (unless its a clone). This is due to phenotypes of the same strain displaying different traits, sometimes that’s the size of the plant, the colour, and often it’s the amount of THC.

Then comes the fact that the way you actually grow the plant changes the amount of THC that the eventual plant will create. The amount of time you let the plant go at the end of flowering changes things too. The strain with the highest THC content is pretty controversial actually, breeders argue over whether their competitor’s measurements are fair as obviously having one of the highest THC strain


Let’s say though that we’re looking for the highest reported amount of THC by a breeder. They’ve grown it to perfection and a reputable lab has confirmed it. I’m going to have to make a judgement call here, so please don’t email me with abuse if you don’t agree with my findings!

So let’s say you’re growing to get the strongest possible weed for your buck. What’s the highest THC strain it’s possible for you to buy? I think I’ve found something you’ll like.

Moonshine's Ghost Train by Rare Dankness

This might not be a name you’ve heard before. You might well have heard of one of its parents though. The cannabis cup winning Moonshine Haze and the previous holder of the title ‘Strongest strain on earth’ Ghost Train Haze #1.

Moonshine Haze has been reported by labs at anywhere from 26% to 27.5% THC, which would make it definitely one of the strongest strains on the planet today. If you look at pictures of it, it looks like a strain that would knock you out or send you flying as well. It’s a long flowering plant due to its majority Sativa parentage, and is going to take you to an almost 80 day finishing time. It’s worth it though for this strain that packs a mega punch.
