If you are a recreational marijuana user, you may already know that marijuana strains with a high level of potency are the major deal, especially in 2017. In fact, there is a huge collection of marijuana strains available this year, some are new and others have been around for a while. The strongest strains these days have increased to a THC level of 35 percent, which is quite high. Some people suggest that the marijuana plant is unable to produce THC level higher than that, but breeders are pushing the envelope and making it more possible to exceed 35 percent in THC level. Let us look at some of the strongest marijuana strains that have come to the forefront in 2017.
