High THC Seeds
Tetrahydrocannabidiol or THC is essentially one of the compounds/cannabinoids which makes up the cannabis plant and is known to be the primary intoxicant found within the plant. Certain cannabis plants have been known to provide high THC content however with the growing aid of technology, breeders have been able to identify ways to increase THC content in plants, via cross-breeding. Breeders have opted for cross-breeding in order to combine the genetics from high THC plants in order to produce the resultant strains, which have the highest THC ratio. Since strains with a high THC content generally provide the user with an intense and stronger cerebral ‘high’ in comparison to any other strain, therefore regular uses tend to opt for the aforementioned to incur the said cerebral ‘high’, which may not be possible with its counterparts.
In order to enable users to further understand the types of seeds which can provide them with a high level of THC content, the following highlights the top three types of high THC seeds which are popular with regular users, a few amongst the masses, whose characteristics have been outlined below.
Types of High THC Seeds
The types of seeds available, all with a high level of THC content, include but are not limited to Gorilla Glue # 4, Black Widow, Afghan Kush, Brazil Amazonia, Colombian Gold, Ketama, Kilimanjaro, Pakistan Valley and other such varieties. To familiarize users with
the characteristics of a few, the first three namely Gorilla Glue # 4, Black Widow and Afghan Kush have been elaborated upon.
Gorilla Glue # 4 Feminised Seeds
An Indica / Sativa hybrid variety, the Gorilla Glue # 4 was bred via the cross breeding of Chem Sis, Sour Dubb and Chocolate Diesel and contains THC content between 15-20%. Known to a high yielding strain, the Gorilla Glue # 4 can be grown indoors and outdoors, depending upon requirement and can grow up to 200 cm, within 63 - 70 days if cultivated outdoors; indoor flowering takes 9 - 10 weeks.
Black Widow Regular Seeds
The product of cross-breeding between a Brazilian Sativa and a hybrid from South India, the Black Widow, also known as the White Widow, can be grown indoors, outdoors and in greenhouses depending upon the conditions of the environment. The production of THC within this category often reaches 20%, with a flowering time of 8-10 Weeks. It is often used for therapeutic purposes, including pain relief and muscle spasms since it provides an overall relaxed and cerebral feeling.
Afghan Kush Regular Seeds
A pure indica hybrid land-race cannabis strain from the Armu Darya river valley near to the border with Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, the Afghan Kush can be grown both indoors and outdoors, with a flowering time of 6-8 weeks. Further to this, the plant has a good resistance to mould along with a high water tolerance enabling it to with stand harsher climates. It is further recommended as a medical strain for the symptoms of insomnia, stress and pain.
