5 Most Popular High-THC Strains of 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, we can look back over the past 12 months with much fondness, especially as so much has changed regarding legalization in countries worldwide.

It has also been a great year here at Seedsman, where continued support from loyal customers means we can continue to provide the very best strains in the world in 2018.

Before you celebrate the new year, we thought you would like to see which high-THC strains were most popular on our website in 2017.

Take a look at what our customers have loved cultivating this year…

1.White Widow Feminised

White Widow is one of the best-known, and still one of the most potent, cannabis strains in the world. It also happens to be the best selling strain in the Seedsman collection.

Originally created in the early 1990s its release to the coffee-shops of Amsterdam was met with universal rave reviews as canna-tourists flocked in their thousands to find out whether all the advance publicity for this white strain was true. It was and remains so today. Bred by crossing a Brazilian sativa strain with a highly resinous South Indian indica it is named after the plant’s frosty appearance which makes it white with resin.

White Widow is designed for the utmost potency rather than any complex flavour profile although the smoke is very smooth and satisfying. The initial hit comes on fast and strong, which can leave anyone but the most experienced canna-seur needing to sit down, but this then slowly evolves into a very relaxing high ideal for enjoying music. It is an easy strain to grow almost anywhere; its eight week flowering period ensuring that it will be ready to harvest outdoors in October in northern latitudes before the weather gets too cold. THC levels are high, around 20%.

2. California Orange Feminised

California Orange is an old-school indica/sativa hybrid cannabis strain that dates back to the early 1980’s if not before!

A terrific resin producer, California Orange produces good to very good yields in just 9 weeks flowering indoors. Its dense buds have a really strong orange/citrus flavour and deliver a very potent, uplifting, happy high but one which may induce the old “cotton mouth” feeling so it is advisable to keep a drink handy. Heavier doses can lead to a more couch-lock indica-type stoned effect.

Medically it can be used to help combat stress and depression.

3. Blueberry Feminised

Blueberry was originally created by Canadian DJ Short and dates back to the 1970’s. It is a 3-way indica-dominant hybrid cross of an Afghani strain together with Thai and a Purple Thai. When in good conditions, it can grow into a fairly large plant displaying a range of red, purple and blue colours and producing very good yields.

Unsurprisingly when fully-cured Blueberry has an incredibly fruity perfume along with the unmistakable sweet flavour of blueberry. The effect is a smokers dream – a very potent yet happy high which is very euphoric, yet relaxing and enduring. Another quality of Blueberry is that, although taking a while to cure out, when correctly prepared and packaged it has a very long shelf-life compared with many strains available today.

4. Original Skunk #1 Feminised

Original Skunk #1 is the direct descendent of the famous Skunk line that began with the legendary Skunk #1 which was created by Sacred Seeds way back in the late 1960’s – early 1970’s when cross-breeding different cannabis strains for desired characteristics was seeing the first fruits of its labours. It was introduced to the Dutch as the first stabilised cannabis hybrid strain. Bred by crossing Afghani indica together with Mexican “Acapulco Gold” and Colombian Gold sativa strains it brought together such traits as the great taste and high of sativas with the resin production, bud density and reduced flowering times of the best indicas.

Original Skunk #1 thrives indoors and also does very well in green houses. Outdoors it is best left to warmer Mediterranean climates and will be ready to harvest during the month of October. Indoors flowering lasts for about 9 weeks before golden or light green buds packed with resin crystals will be yours. Yields are very high as is its level of THC. A high bud to leaf ratio means that manicuring is an absolute breeze. After careful curing its sweet flavour and powerful, cerebral high will be ready to take you wherever.

5. Girl Scout Crack Feminised

A cross of two perennially popular strains; Green Crack and Girls Scout Cookies, Girl Scout Crack retains the most sought after traits of both its parents. Combining the invigorating energy and focus of the sativa-dominant Green Crack with the euphoric relaxation of indica-dominant Girl Scout Cookies, this strain enables users to find a perfect balance between vitality and respite.

The phenomenal therapeutic benefits of both parents are also prevalent in Girl Scout Crack, which is suitable for those suffering with pain, nausea, loss of appetite, stress and depression. As an indica/sativa hybrid, it is suitable for both night and day medication.

Girl Scout Crack has a sweet, fruity aroma with purple leaves and a dense bud structure. Like both parents, the strain takes around 7 – 9 weeks to finish flowering.
