Strongest Weed Strains Found Around Springfield MA

One of the questions budtenders at our dispensary in Massachusetts get asked the most is, “What’s your strongest weed?” While it’s not a great way to select the best cannabis strain for you, it gets asked often enough that we thought it’d be helpful to lay out some of the strongest cannabis strains that you may come across around Springfield, MA and throughout Western Massachusetts. And by strongest, we mean cannabis strains that more often than not have a ridiculously high amount of THC. 


White Tahoe Cookies


White Tahoe Cookies is an Indica-dominant hybrid that helps you eat more, feel less pain, and get a great night’s sleep. While the strong effects may be a bit much for those new to cannabis, it will reward seasoned Massachusetts cannabis users with a bunch of laughs and a very relaxing evening. White Tahoe Cookies is often found with more than 29% THC. A sweet and earthy taste is followed by a euphoria that fades into a sleepy, relaxing body high.






This high THC Sativa was created from crossing Trainwreck, Jack the Ripper and Trinity. Chernobyl brings on a dreamy, enlightened mood that lasts for hours. One toke will keep you feeling good for most of the day. Chernobyl smells like a dish of orange sherbet with a squeeze of lime. The high is quite relaxing and uplifting for a Sativa. You can expect Chernobyl to bring positive vibes and put you in a great mood, regardless of whether the Patriots win or not. 


Apple Fritter


It’s rare for such a potent strain to be so evenly balanced, but that’s what you’ll find in the excellent hybrid. With its lineage originating from Sour Apple and Animal Cookies, Apple Fritter brings on a seriously strong high. As you might expect, the flower has a sweet apple flavor with a slight vanilla aftertaste, just like an apple fritter! The aroma is on point as well, and a single nug is known to fill an entire room in minutes. The Apple Fritter effects start almost as soon as you exhale, pushing out any negativity and replacing it with a tingly body high that puts you at ease with the world. 


WiFi Cake


WiFi Cake is a Sativa dominant strain that comes from a cross of the WiFi and Wedding Cake strains. While the aroma is mostly sweet, the taste has a distinct diesel note. The high sets in immediately as you are hit with a smack energy and a very alert high. There is also a very noticeable mood uplift, perfect for going on a hike through the Western Mass woods. If you’re looking for a creative, social high that lasts for hours, WiFi Cake may be just the strain for you. 





Chemdawg has been one of the most classic and celebrated strains of weed in New England for decades. This hybrid is often found with THC levels over 30%. Chemdawg’s amazing genetics can also be found in other classic strains such as Sour Diesel and OG Kush. You can expect a very distinctive and deep diesel aroma and taste. Chemdawg will deliver a serious body buzz, with a mental high that is mostly recommended for seasoned Massachusetts cannabis users. If you are looking to relieve stress or anxiety while relaxing sore muscles, Chemdawg will be right up your alley. 




This potent Sativa was created by crossing Mexican and Thai landrace Sativas with native Afghani Indica. The effects hit you like a bus (or train), with extremely speedy effects that bring about creativity and euphoric feelings. The smell is a mix of sweet lemon and pine needle aroma. With absurdly high THC levels, Trainwreck is known to also help users forget about their pain while their mind races with energy. This strain is a wonderful wake and bake go-to. The mental boost will have your day going in no time. However, it’s not guaranteed to keep you on track. 



Super Lemon Haze


Super Lemon Haze is a Sativa-dominant cross between Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Its powerfully uplifting effects have been appreciated far and wide, with Super Lemon Haze taking home the famed Cannabis Cup on two different occasions. The buds are bright and multicolored, with an extreme lemon smell and taste. Super Lemon Haze is one of the most energizing strains out there, with the effects being similar to your brain taking multiple shots of espresso. This is a daytime use strain, and if used at night be prepared to be energized for a while. 


Sour Diesel


This Sativa dominant classic hails from another stain on our list, Chemdawg. It has a very unique Sativa effect that delivers a boost to your mind while also making your body feel heavy and relaxed. The taste and smell are exactly what you’d expect from the name: gas, chemical, skunk, and extremely pungent. Sour Diesel can often be found with over 25% THC, and is a great strain to roll up with a few friends while camping or enjoying the outdoors.
