Like an unofficial rivalry born out of a movie, there has always been a debate on which side of the country produces the best Canadian cannabis strains. Some prefer Ontario cannabis strains, while others would rather spend on British Columbia cannabis grows. 

In this post, we have compiled some of the best Canadian cannabis strains from the east and west coast regions. Before you continue reading, head on over to True North Cannabis Co.’s shop to stock up on these famous pickings! 

Ontario Cannabis Strains: The Cream of the Crop 

Afghani Bullrider by BLLRDR 

While this Canadian cannabis hybrid strain is loved all over the country, its roots in Toronto give the east coast a heavy advantage. The fast-acting, indica-dominant strain is cultivated by Toronto-based brand, BLLRDR, which is known to produce rare and special-cut Canadian cannabis strains with their exquisite genetics and small-batch production. The strain has vibrant, fluffy buds, with amber pistils that produce a sweet and sour aroma. It gives a relaxing effect combined with the giggles. 

Jean Guy by Fume 

This high-terpene Canadian cannabis strain from the Ontario-based company has Dutch roots and is famous for its cerebral high. Its sour, citrusy aroma has hints of lemon and pine, adorned with frosted dark green leaves that cover its pastel buds. Jean Guy is revered by both medicinal and recreational consumers because of its well-rounded effects that can lift moods and alleviate pain. Try the Jean Guy FSO cartridge from Fume, with a 7% terpene profile that has a sweet, citrusy, and woody flavour.

Peanut Butter Breath by Caramel Cannabis 

Grown in Oro-Medonte, Peanut Butter Breath is a Canadian cannabis strain worthy of international recognition. The strain has long, dense buds covered in resin that makes it appealing and enticing. It has a specific aroma of coffee and notes of crushed garlic, with a rich and earthy flavour upon the inhale, finished with a sweet note upon the exhale. Its ridiculously high THC content ranges from 20 to 26%, making it a top choice for all types of consumers across the country.

British Columbia Cannabis Strains: The Best in the West

BC Organic Blue Dream by Simply Bare 

Grown in BC’s Fraser Valley, this small-batch, sativa-dominant cultivar is truly aromatic, with strong blueberry aromas and a warm, peppery terpene profile. Sweet and spicy, this Canadian cannabis strain will leave you feeling creative and euphoric, inspiring you to complete a project or to explore the great outdoors. Another notable mention from Simply Bare worthy of being labeled as one of the best British Columbia strains is the BC Organic Apple Toffee

Pink Kush by Pure Sunfarms 

Another Canadian cannabis company located in Fraser Valley, is Pure Sunfarms; and they cultivated a winner that’s praised all over the country. Like its OG Kush parent, the Pink Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid that offers a strong body-high. Its punchy aromas, colourful buds, and high THC content make it an affordable heavy-hitter perfect for those looking for strains that won’t break the bank. 

Rockstar Kush by Spinach 

This indica-dominant hybrid strain will give you a big energy boost with strong cerebral effects. Known for its long-lasting high that ends with a relaxing body buzz. Its skunky and sour characteristics make it a top Canadian cannabis pick from BC. It is also lauded for its ability to relieve chronic pain and several mental health concerns such as anxiety and stress
