While most potent marijuana can be measured in a lab it is much more of a subjective factor that often decides what strain is more 'potent' for an individual. It becomes a personal assessment rather than just a clinical number that would decide that.
Potent marijuana strands include Indicas and Sativas. Sativas potent weed strains give a cerebral high.
Sativas Powerful Marijuana Include:
Indica Potent Weed:
Grown properly these are some of the strongest strains. But remember, if you want the most potent strongest marijuana, you'd rather grow Indicas, which are known to have a higher resin production with a higher concentration of THC and CBDs. Indicas are also best for making hashish. Hash Plant is one of my favorites.
But it's a matter of taste. THC levels of White Widow can be around 20% if grown properly. G13 is said to be 25% THC, so if you're willing to invest, Mr. Nice G13 x Hash Plant of Sensi Seeds is a good choice.
