Did you know Canadians spent $908 million on legal cannabis in only the first year of legalization? Ever since marijuana became legal in Canada, the industry has exploded in growth. Consumers can buy all different types of marijuana products as well as strains, from the most potent concentrates to CBD oil.
It’s no surprise that Canadians love cannabis and are willing to spend good money on the best marijuana strains. But with so many strains available, it can be difficult to know the top cannabis strains of all time.
This is why we created this list. Here are our marijuana strain recommendations.
What Really Are “Strains” of Cannabis?
What do we mean by cannabis “strains?” No two weed names and strains are the same. All cannabis strains contain a mix of cannabinoids, notably psychoactive THC and health-boosting CBD. In addition, cannabis has a complex phytochemical structure that gives each strain its own individual properties.
Cannabis is cultivated to contain different amounts of these cannabinoids. That’s why certain strains are ideal for patients with specific conditions while others are better for an evening of fun with friends.
Another notable difference is the different strain types, specifically Indica and Sativa. While most marijuana strains on the market are technically a hybrid of both, certain strains contain specific properties that cause a different experience.
For example, Indicas are shorter and bushier plants that have specific terpene profiles, such as myrcene and linalool. Indica cannabis strains induce relaxation while relieving pain and inflammation.
Sativas are lanky plants with narrow leaves. They also contain certain terpenes such as pinene and limonene. Sativa strains also offer medical benefits such as pain relief but make the user feel more energized.

How to Choose the Best Cannabis Strain for Yourself
Just because these are the strains we recommend doesn’t mean they are ideal for all Cannabis smokers. There are certain factors that users should determine when choosing the best cannabis strains.
Know Your Needs
Are you using cannabis for medical or recreational reasons? Do you want to feel more energized or relaxed when using cannabis? Are you a first-timer or a seasoned user? Discovering the answers to these questions will help you choose the best cannabis strain for you.
Your Favourite Taste and Smell
As stated previously, all cannabis strains have terpenes that impact the taste and smell of cannabis. That’s why all cannabis strains taste and smell differently. This is especially important when you smoke cannabis — terpenes are often not included in concentrates and edibles.
For example, many strains smell sweet while others smell “skunky.” While most cannabis strains have an earthy taste, some may taste more citrusy or even minty.

Your Tolerance Level
If you’re a beginning cannabis user or took a long tolerance break, you’ll want to avoid high-THC strains. These strains have 20% THC and more. You can also opt for high-CBD strains. CBD is not only ideal for patients but CBD counteracts the effects of THC.
There are also considerations when you’re an experienced cannabis user. For example, if you’re using medical marijuana, you’ll want to discuss your conditions and symptoms with your doctor or budtender.
Experienced cannabis users also know if they prefer a “mental” or “body” high. These preferences depend on the strain you buy.
