Guess What?

That may surprise some of you. It certainly surprised me. With that in mind, anything over 30% could be considered “ultra potency.” So let’s stick with that lingo.

The slippery slope that may arise from the introduction of ultra potent cannabis is the assumption that more = better. But remember this: THC is psychoactive. So you’re increasing your high but might not necessarily improve the medicinal benefits.

Especially since strains with higher amounts of THC tend to be lacking in broad terpene profiles and other cannabinoids. And less tends to be more when it comes to enhanced medicinal effects with THC.

Sure, there may be patients who are chasing a stronger high. But that seems like it’s time for a tolerance break, which you’ll learn about further below.


Deciding to buy high THC medical cannabis

If you’re an absolute beginner, you should steer clear of ultra potent strains. It’s pushing it to even encourage you to start with high potency ones. The rest comes down to your experience, your tolerance, desired effects, condition and circumstances.

Again, there is no single answer for this. We’re as diverse as the cannabis we’re consuming.

If you suffer from chronic conditions or cancer, high potency strains may be the right move. Or if you feel that your relief is diminished for whichever ailment you’re treating, consider terpene profiles first before ramping up on THC.

It’s up to you to decide if you should consume high potency strains. And of course, you should work with your provider to work out a treatment plan if you do explore this option.

Also, get informed on the profile of the high and ultra potency strains you may purchase. Weigh the differences in cannabinoids and terpenes in strains you typically keep in your stash. You may get an idea of the effects based on similarities.

Because everyone is different, we encourage you to notate your experiences and dosages.
