    A man has admitted growing what police described as the strongest cannabis ever found in the UK.

    David Wyler, 55, of Poplar Avenue, Nottingham, admitted producing cannabis and possessing the drug as well as possessing amphetamines.
    Tests on 500 cannabis plants seized at a house in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, showed they were the strongest ever found in the UK, Derby Crown Court was told.

    Police believe he made £500,000 out of drugs. Wyler will be sentenced later.
    The house in Ilkeston was entirely given over to producing cannabis plants, the hearing was told.

    Test carried out by forensic scientists on the plants showed the THC content, a measure of the drug's strength, was 29%. The normal reading for cannabis is 12%.
    Police seized £30,000, which was in the possession of Wyler, along with three cars.

    Man that shit would whack you out. I was told by the seed co. that white widow was the strongest at 19%, kinda makes that look like bunk! I remember when I was a youngster, many moons ago, that weed was rated in tenths of a percent, like .7%, excellent weed went up to about 5-7% tops, but the normal weed was under 1%. Thai stick, Panama red, Acapulco gold, Columbian gold, they would have been in the 4-7 percent range. Didn't have hydro at that time, so the modern breeding has definently raised the bar!

    How stoned do you want to be, I think you could reduce the buds down with alcohol and get near 100% thc, then you could shoot it up and Viola, stone city! I used to get pretty high on 4-7%, there was always a Quality of the high issue. Stronger does not necessarily mean a better high, maybe more intense, but isn't the goal of getting high to mellow out and enjoy the process? 29% thc is pretty potent, I believe that would definently be a one hit high!

    Gentlemen, what that man was growing was Cheese. I've mentioned it before on this site, and the smell is stronger than your average carbon filter can handle. There's loads of it in England. There's another batch in in a couple of weeks. Also we'll soon be getting a few cuttings of this magical plant...

    Long live the cheese...

    ...if you want to believe the hype that weed is stronger now than ever, go ahead...but you would be wrong...

    ...talk to an old schooler and see what they thought of maui waui, or malawi gold, or thai stick...better than what most of you are smoking today...

    ...remember that we are just beginning to test cannabinoid levels so "highest ever recorded" isn't very impressive...and thc is rarely the dominant factor of good marijuana...i prefer a high thv level...

    Ask the old timers and they'll tell you how great everything was 'back then.' Fact is cannabis IS stronger now than ever... I really hope that one day you Americans get hold of some cheese, it'll blow you away.

    Cannabis is not the only drug to have gotten much stronger over the years. Heroin and Cocaine have too. For example, with heroin back in the 60's you would have been a pop star to obtain 20% heroin, these days you can beg on the street to fund a habit where you are using heroin that is 80%.

    Back in the 60s and early 70s, there was weed around that had the effect of mescaline. Talk about a very slow cartoon world ... zowie!

    Vi', I honestly believe that that was more down to your perception of the world and what the drug would do to you. When I first started smoking it would take only small amounts before I got stoned. That doesn't mean that the weed has got weaker, only that our tolerance has increased. People start smoking much earlier these days and they are starting on stronger weed.

    You only need to study the history of weed for a short while before realising that weed has gotten stronger, at least in thc content.

    Well, I believe you are correct when it comes to THC content. The EFFECT was different in the old days and that probably didn't have much to do with THC content.

    When we take drugs the effect of the drug has a lot to do with our state of mind at the time.

    There's no such thing as a bad bunch of acid; I know because I've experienced the bad trips and analysed them. There are always contributing factors that lead to suffering a bad one. i'd also go so far as to say that 90% of the factors are psychological and the other 10% residing in the physical. This applys to all drugs that don't make you vomit as soon as you take them... even some of the ones that make you vomit.

    I'll have to agree with you on this one. The pre-state of mind is important. You can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear. That is why on my rant on Peyote I professed that a cleansing of body and mind should pre-empt the taking of the drug. Sorta in reverse of bullshit in, bullshit out! If you're hysterical when you ingest any psychic drug, you'll probably be hysterical after!

    ...how could marijuana have gotten stronger?..no matter what fancy bottles you have in your grow room, the tactics for breeding have stayed the same for centuries...if marijuana has gotten stronger than a poly-hybrid would be more potent than heritage stock...this is not so...

    ...obviously some exceptions apply, but we have to keep in mind that we do not really understand how marijuana gets you high...i have tested thc content using the alpha-nova system and found that high thc does not always mean you get higher...there are alot of cannabinoids...

    ...when i refered to old timers i was mostly refering to dj short and his vast knowledge of the plant over the years...

    ...i'm canadian...

    What the hell do you think THC (tetra-hydra-canibinal) is. THC is a strong hallucinogen with medicinal propertys, it's only that we ingest such a diluted amount that we don't hallucinate. If you took a large dose of THC (yes it's a drug) it would make LSD look like candy. BTW, did you go past 3rd grade? Whats next, beer is not a drug? can you say alcohol!

    The tactics for breeding may not have changed for centuries, but the tactics for growing certainly have. Ever since a plant called Warlock hit the scene, weed has just been getting stronger and stronger. We have the cannabis cup, high times etc... Competition is responsible for the increase to thc potency... Man's desire to win, to create that mega-strain. It also has much to do with how the plant is grown, creating the absoloute environment...

    I can see that your mind will not be changed on the matter... all I can suggest is that you do some unbiased reading.

    ...dude...i know alot of breeders...and a fair amount about breeding...do you have any idea how long it takes to actually create a strain?..you may be able to do it twice in a lifetime...btw warlock is skunkXskunkXafghan...a hybrid...are you saying a pure skunk doesn't stand up to warlock in potency?..

    ...i just feel that the media is blowing this out of proportion...true testing of psyco-active compounds within marijuana is very new but its use is very old...i wouldn't be suprised if the strongest strain existed thousands of years ago...ego also has alot to do with it...

    I'm growing a new strain that has been developed by a guy that develops new strains all the time, well not exactly all the time but certainly much more than two in a lifetime... I know about the length of time developing a new strain takes and the failures that can accompany you along the way. It does take time.

    I agree that there are chemicals within cannabis that their effect upon the brain is not known. In fact the brain has billions of neuro-transmitters that scientists have no idea of their use. Most drugs usually flood the brain with either seratonin or dopamine... or both. The rest is then up to you...

    I'm now 31 years old and have been pretty much a regular smoker for 17 of them. I've done a lot of smoking in that time, I've been a constant smoker (meaning I do it all day long) for the past seven years. I've smoked skunk for years and I KNOW it's getting stronger... or at least, the high is getting better.
