What are the strongest cannabis strains?
Not all cannabis is created equal. You might think that THC is the only thing that matters when trying to find the strongest cannabis strain on the menu. However, there are a few different factors that go into shaping the flower. Things like cannabis terpenes play a major role in deciding the flower’s flavor, strength, and the outcome of your high. Finding a strain that’s rich in terpenes and high in THC can deliver a well rounded, strong high. We’ve put together a list of the strongest cannabis strains we’ve come across lately.

Is strong cannabis good for managing pain?
Some strains are lower in THC and just can’t combat pain like others can. Flowers that are high in THC and CBD have been shown to help manage pain and inflammation. Smoking a strong indica strain or a CBD strain when you’re trying to relieve pain is a great alternative to taking prescription or over the counter painkillers. Cannabis is non-addictive and doesn’t have any harsh side effects like many prescription pain killers cause.
