This isn’t a completist’s list, but it’s pretty darn close. Our friendly competitors over at High Times just released their catalogue of the strongest strains smoked in the last 12 months. Contenders are chosen from strains submitted at various Cannabis Cups, all of which were lab-tested for THC potency. What follows is a list of the top five heaviest-hitters at each of High Time’s five events in the last year: Michigan, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, NorCal (which actually only had 4) and Seattle.

The strain with the most THC per capita was the Ghost Train Haze #1 from OrganiBliss/Leaf Doctor found at the Michigan Cup, which tested at 27.46 %, but only placed second for sativa strain, beat out by Catfish from Arborside Compassion, which only scored a 20.32% on the THC Richter scale.

The Michigan Cup in general had some of the strongest contenders of the year, averaging a little higher than either Los Angeles or Amsterdam. Seattle was the weakest competition in terms of potency, with not a single entry topping 20%, meaning the city’s last Cup ever unfortunately went out with a whimper rather than a bang.

Anywho, here’s the complete list of 24 THC-stocked buds worth seeking out.
