The German people have good taste. They are known internationally for their exquisite engineering, high-quality goods, hearty food, and strong beer. This love for all things excellent also applies to their taste in cannabis. We’ve gathered data on the most popular strains in Germany, and the nation sure loves high THC levels and tantalising terpene profiles. Check out the 5 most popular cultivars in the country below.

1. ROYAL GORILLA

Royal Gorilla represents excellence in the world of cannabis genetics, which is precisely why she has garnered the attention of so many German growers. She appears entirely innocent from the outside with her compact, colourful flowers. However, her THC level of 27% begins to take hold after a single hit. She delivers an instant high that ignites the mind and stones the body in equal measure. This warming effect lasts for hours at a time and is accompanied by pleasant tastes of earthiness and pine. Indoors, Royal Gorilla pumps out 500–550g/m² after a flowering time of 9–10 weeks. A single outdoor plant produces a generous 550–600g, ready to harvest in October.

German growers have a special place in their heart for Special Queen 1. This Skunk hybrid offers easy and consistent results.

Her bulbous colas produce a terpene profile defined by flavours of sweetness, spice, and fruit. Indoors, expect a return of 525g/m² after a brief flowering time of 7–8 weeks. Outdoors, she’ll put out up to 550g/plant in late September.
