Strongest Indica Strain

Strongest Indica Strain

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 16 November 2020 in Canna Blog

When smoking concentrates or flower, everyone has their own specific preference. Some people are looking for a creative, productive, functioning high while others are looking to melt into the couch. We understand all spectrums of flight, so we know just what to recommend, depending on what you’re wanting. 

Looking for the strongest indica strain there is? Whether you’re looking for flower, wax, or other concentrates, we have some recommendations for you based on just how “high” you’re looking to get. But first, it’s best to know what to expect with different products and the amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) each type of product usually contains. 

 

Different Products and THC Levels

From CBD-only products with 0% THC to heavy-punching cannabis with 36% THC to interstellar highs with 80% concentrates of THC in wax or shatter, you can choose the altitude of your “flight.” 

CBD compared to strongest indica strain

CBD Only

Products which are lower in THC and high in CBD will result in a more relaxed, body feel with little-to-no psychoactive high. This is a great product for beginners, which comes in various forms, from creams to flower and concentrates to start. We recommend these products for treating body pain or anxiety and are looking to keep it chill, yet functionable.

Flower (Bud)

The next stronger product is flower, which normally has between 8% to 36% (rising every day) of THC. This is the traditionalist’s go-to, as most dispensaries cure the bud to be in perfect form for bongs and pipes. You can use flower buds to combust away the blues of the day or celebrate with friends and even make peace with frenemies.

concentrate form of marijuana

Concentrates

The strongest forms of cannabis are known as concentrates. This is the distilled form of cannabis that comes in the form of distillate wax, live resins, shatter, butter, and new offerings every day! The most common use of these concentrates is in vapes, dabs, or topping off flower bowls. You may also find CBD-only concentrates, although you will also find the strongest THC strains and one-hit wonders, including some of the strongest indicas out there, guaranteed to knock your socks off. 

marijuana Edibles

Edibles

Another widely available product is edibles. These are not the same brownies that your fun aunt made. Edibles now come in chocolate bars, honey sticks, cookies, gummies, waffles, ice cream, soda pops, teas, coffees, and more. The dosage of these is controllable most of the time and first-time users should tread lightly. 

 

Sativa vs Indica Strains

In the world of weed, that was a lot of information. Yet we still have not addressed the difference between indica and sativa! On top of the THC and CBD content, there is another criterion to consider. That is daylight smoking versus nighttime, bright versus mellow, and active versus chill. 

 

Sativa

Most will associate sativa with the bright, citrus, active spectrum. This high is usually characterized by fun psychoactive head highs, energy, spurts of creative intensity, and those deep, existential debates with your smartest friends. Some will run record times on their exercises, invent new paradigms, or chase their dreams with the stimulating nature of a sativa strain. 

 

Indica

The opposite end of strains is the dank, earthy, chilled indica. The indica heavy strains are great for winding down and watching a movie, slowing the racing thoughts, preparing for a big meal, and making sure you sleep like a baby (when you think of indica, think, “in-da-couch”).

 

Hybrids

We cannot forget in the modern world of genetics, the hybrids. These strains are engineered to give you the best of both worlds. Hybrids can help you get high but still feel a body relaxation/chill. They are a great option for those who like the middle ground and do not feel like running ten miles or passing out. This is a good option if you must see people who you want to impress. Hybrid strains are also perfect for the functioning cannabis user.

Strongest Indica Strains

There are many indica strains to choose from and wherever you are you will find new and novel genetics. We will attempt to rank the top ten and name a winner, but keep in mind – wherever you choose to go will have great strains to pick from, regardless of their name. Before we list our recommendations of the strongest indica strain, knowing what you should look for in an indica is helpful.

 

What to Look for in a Strong Indica Strain

  • Color - Some things to look for are the colors of the buds. Indicas are known for having darker colored purple or dark green buds. Some may have transparent or orange hairs with crystals. 
  • Smell - It is wise to smell the buds and the danker, dark fruit smells such as plum, grape, or black currant flavors are a good signal. Other notable scents are skunk, wet socks, cheese, and gasoline.

strongest indica strains

Ogre Indica Strain

Ranking #10: Anything with the name OGRE. Yes, like Shrek this term is a good indicator that you will be transported to the swamp of your couch and locked into your cozy home.

 

Northern Lights Indica Strain

Ranking #9: Northern Lights. This strain will surely have you stargazing at the back of your eyelids before the end of your favorite movie.

 

Afghani Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #8: Afghani Kush. Likely to be found crossed with other strains Afghani Kush is always a heavy-hitting, tasty strain. Thank your veterans for this strain!

 

Critical Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #7: Critical Kush. When you have “critical” in the name, you know it is serious. These strains may be crossed but are always known to give great body relief. If you have heavy body pains this is the one you should be looking for.

 

“Cheesy” Indica Strains

Ranking #6: Cheese anything. These cheese strains are wide-ranging but well known for their appetite-inducing effects and obvious smell. The giveaway is the cheesy or “dank” smelling aromas emanating from their dense buds.

 

OG Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #5: OG Kush. The “original gangsta” kush is one of the oldest strains. It is a great indica which usually has a gasoline-like aroma. This strain burns well but is especially known for rolling epic blunts.

 

Acapulco Gold Indica Strain

Ranking #4: Acapulco Gold. Named after exotic beaches in foreign places you can imagine this strain will have you feeling like you are on vacation. Kick those feet up and fall asleep, listening to the sound of the waves in your head.

 

Blue Dream Indica Strain

Ranking #3: Blue Dream. The dreamiest. Like floating on cloud nine this is a euphoria-inducing strain that will make all better in the universe.

 

Bubba Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #2: Bubba Kush: Your best friend Bubba always delivers a hard-hitting high that will have you laughing all the way to your bed. 

 

Grandaddy Grape Ape Indica Strain

Ranking #1: Granddaddy Grape Ape is the king of the indica jungle. In our opinion, it’s the strongest indica strain you’ll find. If you do find it, buy as much as you can. Known for its eye-catching purple buds and grape smelling aromas, this is a strain that can knock you out even before you finish your bowl.

Colorado Pot Featured In High Times “Strongest Strains on Earth”

ChemDog with 32.13% THC, is an indica entered by Next Harvest. High Times states that the Chem has achieved what most people thought impossible with it’s level of potency - which begs the question: How potent can a flower go in terms of producing psychoactive THC?

The Brotherhood came in second with 27.65% THC and is also an indica. It was entered by Animas Herbal Wellness Center. It’s our understanding that it’s propagated from seed and her lineage stacks up like this: (Willie’s Wonder x Grape Krush) x (Bubba ’91 x The White).

Sour Kush 60/40 with 26% THC, a hybrid came in number three. It was entered by Black Dog LED. Next is Lemon OG Haze with 26.14% THC. It’s a sativa entered by Ethos Seed Company. Ghost Train Haze was next with 27.46% THC, sativa, entered by Greenman Cannabis in Denver with the review noting, it’s a Rare Dankness–bred strain dipped slightly.

The strongest CBD strains were tested by three different labs across four separate competitions. Coming in at number 5 out of the top six CBD strains is Colorado's The White entered by Green Grass Central City, expressing 16.57% CBD with 0.67% THC. The sixth strongest CBD strain AC/DC entered by Emerald Triangle Genetics came in expressing 15.4% CBD with 0.8% THC.

The top CBD strain, Cannatonic, entered by IDK Farms topped out at an amazing 20.8% CBD with 0.8% THC. The second highest strain was CBD OG entered by C.R.A.F.T. expressing 19.5% CBD with a fairly high level of THC reaching 9.01%.

Perkins Cut Cannatonic entered by Mota Rebel Genetics expressed 18.8% CBD and 0.7% THC and was listed as the third highest. The fourth on the list was CBDee's #1B entered by Pure West Compassion Club with Light Sky Farms. It expressed a CBD level of 18.6% with THC at 0.7%.

In 2013, Bruce Banner came in number 3 at the Denver Cannabis Cup with a high of 28.35% THC. In 2015 a well known LA dispensary by the name of Greenwolf, took home the Denver Cup for their entry, Emperor Cookie Dough. This is not your ordinary cookie dough though. This stuff has a walloping 31.1% THC. Denver's own Next Harvest, wasn't about to be stirred. Their entry of ChemDog Cut surpassed the 32% mark setting the bar high with a new all-time record of 32.13% THC.

These are impressive levels and from the looks of it, the USA is producing a more power packed marijuana plant than that of our tokking friends in Jamaica.

The top of the list of six only reaches 17.8% THC submitted by St. Best Ganja Growers apparently going by a self titled name. The entry was submitted by Kevin Samuels and the strain is called Kevies Skunk. Second on the list of entries from Jamaica is True OG entered by Kingston Skinny with a 17.4% THC level followed by Power Nap entered by Sunspice with a level of 16.8% THC.

Next in the lineup is Gummy Berry 2 entered by Bongo Mannie. It's an indica flower grown outdoors with 16.6% THC. Following GB2 is Orange Hill Ebola entered by Juna Johnson. OHE is an outdoor grown indica with a 15.8% THC level. Wrapping it up at number six is M.G. Express - G.O.E.Original, coming again from St. Best Ganja Growers this time submitted by Glendon Elcis. This flower is an outdoor grown sativa leveling out at 15.4% THC and by the hyphenated name and initials G and E in the title, one must guess Glendon Elcis had a little influence.

Colorado Moon Rocks

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 14 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Looking to blast off into outer space and bounce on the moon with the ultimate weed high? Well, if you're not Elon Musk, you're probably wondering how you can space travel. The ticket to ride: Moon rocks.

Moon rocks are some of the most expensive marijuana products that you’ll find on your dispensary menu. It is like the caviar of weed. They are considered one of the most potent ways to smoke marijuana out there.

But what are they exactly?

Colorado moon rocks

What are Moon Rocks?

Moon rocks originate from rapper Kurupt bringing them to fruition in 2014. The name comes from the way this particular brand of cannabis actually looks; like moon rocks.

Moon rocks are not a type of marijuana strain, but more of a cannabis experiment gone oh, so well. Moon rocks in Colorado (as well as anywhere else, for that matter) are made up of different cannabis products rolled into one very potent product admired and very desired for smoking.

They are premium marijuana buds, around a quarter width in size, that get dipped in hash oil, rosin, or live resin.

Moon rocks are then finished by rolling concentrate dipped, premium bud in beautiful golden kief.

Simply put, moon rocks are one big nugget covered in concentrate upon concentrate. Because of this, moon rocks can contain more than 50% THC. 

What Exactly is in Moon Rocks?

If you’re breaking apart a moon rock for the first time, it’s a lot like being a kid eating the perfect ice cream cone. Beginning with the most important, a premium base.

Premium Cannabis

The first and arguably most important ingredient used in moon rock production is premium, top-shelf cannabis. Moon Rocks are produced using any of the hundreds of premium strains out there.

A high concentration of trichomes often shows a particular marijuana strain with advanced cannabinoid production over other strains. High potency and terpene production tend to follow these strains. The color of these buds is incredibly vibrant and every cannabis strain is unique in its own terpene profile. 

But what ice cream cone is any good without some syrupy drizzle??

Concentrate

Cannabis concentrates are oils that are derived from the cannabis plant. Cannabis concentrates often hit between 60-80% in THC potency. Concentrates maintain terpenes from the marijuana plant thus adding to the overall cannabinoids being absorbed, natural taste involved, and controlling your overall high. 

Then, to top everything off, a nice cherry on top.

Kief

Kief is that precious goodness collecting in the bottom of your weed grinder. Dried buds are rubbed over a screen to separate the trichomes. Back and forth, this turns surrounding trichomes into a pile of THC crystals or kief.

Kief has much higher levels of THC than you find in regular buds. It can have around 50% THC making it about twice as strong as a regular flower. 

This beautiful concoction of kief, concentrate, and premium cannabis leads to high THC potencies between 50-90%.

Fly Me to the Moon, Already!

OG marijuana buds can be hit from a bong, or added to a pipe, vaporized, or even smoked out of an apple. But when it comes to consuming these delicious moon rocks, things get trickier and quite a bit stickier.

Attempting to roll up a joint of moon rocks just doesn’t really work all too well.

Moon rocks are made up of an assembly of different marijuana ingredients, the rocks have to be consumed differently than your ordinary buds. The wet/stickiness of the moon rocks caused by added kief and oils make the buds hard to light and to, therefore, smoke those delightful rocks.

Short Guide To Smoking Moon Rocks

  • Hand-break moon rocks, don’t grind: It can be difficult to grind up moon rocks due to their juicy coating of concentrate. It will completely gunk up your grinder and likely remove most of the moon rock's kief. Instead, break them up slowly with your fingers or cut off small pieces with scissors.

  • Glass Pieces: Pipes and bongs are the best way to smoke moon rocks without creating a huge mess. Lightly pack bowls of moon rocks into your favorite glass piece to ensure you lose as little of the moon rock ingredients as possible.

  • Use a hemp wick: The consistency of moon rocks makes holding a flame to your bowl needed for longer than one would typically hold for a regular bowl of MJ. Hemp wick will save you from potentially tasting way too much butane from a lighter and burning your fingers.

  • And finally: you should avoid rolling moon rock joints or blunts. Moon rocks are far too sticky to be rollable or anywhere near smokeable. Also, don’t pack bowls of moon rocks too tight. Too tight and the bowl will be incredibly difficult to light.

What Are the Effects of Moon Rocks?

Moon rocks are POTENT cannabis products. These are for people who have indulged in high-quality THC products. Since moon rocks contain much higher levels of THC, effects are stronger than regular cannabis products.

Effects intensify depending on some factors including the strain used in the rocks and your personal tolerance. Someone who’s not used to high THC cannabis tends to have more intense effects. Some of the common effects of moon rocks are:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Anxiety
  • Sleepiness
  • Impaired memory
  • Cough
  • More, non-life-threatening effects, like red/dry eyes, dry mouth, etc.

Kief vs Hash

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 25 March 2021 in Canna Blog

Frazier vs Ali. Coke vs Pepsi. Red Sox vs Yankees. Kief vs Hash.

Fortunately, there is no rivalry between kief vs hash – just some key differences.

Both are great ways to get high, though there are changes in composition, production, and ingestion that make each unique.

By the end of this article, you’ll know everything there is to know about both hash and kief.

Definitions of Kief and Hash

·         Kief – an accumulation of trichomes sifted from cannabis flowers with a mesh screen.

If you’ve ever used a grinder, odds are you’ve already run into some kief on your own. Kief is the small, powder-like substance you’ll find in a kief catcher. Most grinders are equipped with one on the bottom third portion. When using the grinder to break down flower, the smaller cannabis particles fall down to the kief catcher. These are among the strongest parts of the cannabis plant – kief can get you really high. Kief contains the highest concentration of cannabinoids (THCA, CBD, etc.) in the entire plant.

·         Hash (hashish) – a concentrate created by pressing the resin glands of the cannabis plant together.

Hash is essentially pressed and heated kief. When pressed, the composition of the kief changes. Kief itself is like a powder – hash is more akin to soft brick. This hash can be ingested on its own or used to make other concentrates. All concentrates – wax, shatter, oils – are essentially made from hash. Hash can be many different colors but is typically brown, green, or tan.  

History of Kief and Hash

Kief: Comes from an Arabic word meaning “pleasure.” This makes only makes sense, as kief holds some of the highest amounts of cannabinoids of the entire marijuana plant. It’s hard to track down the first time kief was ever used – wherever someone was breaking down marijuana, kief was being made. Old civilizations had been known to sift marijuana plants in order to obtain kief. As cultivation of weed has been traced back to as early as 500 BCE, one can assume kief was being used as well.

Hash: Hashish is really the original concentrate. Yes, kief is technically a concentrate – but that’s just collected, vs pressing/heating. Hash requires a process to be made. It’s been used both recreationally and medically for thousands of years. A reference to hash can be found in the book 1001 Arabian Nights, which was first published in 1775 – but the contents are likely from much earlier, somewhere between the 8th and 14th Centuries. There are also stories that link the use of hash to Haydar, the founder of the Sufi order. Hashish was widely used among ancient civilizations in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. The concentrate even began to be studied for medical purposes in the early 1900s.

How Kief and Hash are Made

Kief: Kief isn’t as much of a making process as it is a collecting process. It’s really quite simple – use your grinder. The frequently you grind up flower, the more kief you will collect. Kief can also be collected using a sifter.

Hash: The process of making hash is slightly more labor-intensive. Kief is needed to get started on production. The higher the concentration of cannabinoids, terpenes, and trichomes, the stronger the hashish will end up.

The most common way of making hash at home uses a flat-iron or hair straightener, some parchment paper, and kief. Kief goes in the parchment paper, then it is pressed and heated with the iron or straightener. After a short amount of time, the kief will turn into an solid/liquid that can be dabbed or smoked.

Another common way to make hash is by just using the hands. Called charas, and popular in India, flowers are rolled in the hands until a paste-like solid is formed.

The production of hashish has a rich history and is different among many cultures. Still, the end result is the same – a strong concentrate rich with cannabinoids and terpenes.

How To Use Them

Kief: Kief can be used in a variety of ways. Since it’s so commonly collected among stoners, many people have found great ways to utilize all of the cannabinoids located within.

·         Top Off a Bowl or Joint: Kief is pretty strong by itself. It is possible to smoke it on its own, but its powdery texture often leads to incredibly strong hits and coughing fits. Kief really is strong enough that most people don’t need to smoke it by itself. Topping off a bowl or a joint is a great way to make your weed much more potent.

·         Make Cannabutter: Cannabutter is exactly what it sounds like. This product can be used to make stronger edibles than those made with just flower.

·         Spike Your Coffee: That’s right – a popular way to consume kief is by putting it in the morning cup of coffee. The heat of the coffee will activate the cannabinoids in the kief, leaving you with an ultra-relaxing cup of joe.

·         Make Concentrates: Kief can be used to make a variety of concentrates – hash, live resin, shatter, and others. A good way to use your kief is to make moon rocks. These are a combination of flower, hash oil, and kief and are an accepted form of homemade concentrates.

Hash: Hash can be used like most other concentrates – but also like flower as well.

·         Put It In a Joint: You can roll up hash in a joint like you would with kief. The hash will up the potency of your joint.

·         Smoke a Bowl: Hashish itself can be put into a bowl and smoked just like flower. Hash is typically very strong, so not as much will be needed as flower.

·         Dab: If made correctly hash can be dabbed like other concentrates. With enough heat, the hash will be melted into a liquid that can then be dabbed.

Kief vs. Hash

In the end, whichever you like better is really personal preference.

Though both kief and hash have distinct differences, the end result is the same – you’ll be high.
