Fefcb C C F A F What Are The Best Weed Strains

In October 2018, cannabis was legalized here in Canada for recreational purposes. It was already legal for medicinal purposes, but it was recognised that, for many people, cannabis has some benefits. There are, of course, legal restrictions on how much you can possess, where it can be purchased from and where it can be consumed, and these can vary, state by state.

ARCannabis is a licensed retail cannabis store in the state of Vancouver, British Columbia, in Canada. We stock a huge array of cannabis products and accessories, including pre-rolled, vapes, flowers, edibles and more. Everything is compliant with the laws of the state and you can be guaranteed of the very best cannabis product that your cash can buy. 

If you are an experienced consumer of cannabis, you will more than likely have tried out a few different variants of weed, and have found one that hits the sweet spot for you, whether that is a milder hit of THC or a more potent whack. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol. This one of 400 compounds found in cannabis, but is the one that is going to get you high and make you feel great. Different people tolerate different strengths of THC, so it is a case of experimenting until you find the right level of potency for you.

However, if you are new to cannabis and are looking at the vast selection on our website, you are more than likely asking ‘what are the best weed strains?’. We believe that all of the weed that we stock and sell is great, but we also know personal preference is important, so here, we are going to look at what are the best weed strains.

OG Kush

When it comes to the best weed strains, OG Kush is right up there at the top. Even outside the world of cannabis, it is recognized. The origins are unknown; in fact, no one even knows what OG actually stands for. What we do know, however, is that OG Kush is right up there for potency – generally coming in at 20 to 25%. It is a flexible smoke, giving the consumer what they want, whether that is a high, relaxation, focus or a combination of them all. It’s ideal for social situations due to the mood-lifting properties, although if taken in large doses, it can cause feelings of paranoia, so be aware.

Wedding Cake 

If you have a low tolerance to THC, be wary of this one because it WILL knock your socks off. High potency and full of flavour, Wedding Cake, from Weed Me was named number one weed strain by Leafly in 2019. Sometimes, you may see it referred to as Pink cookies, especially here in Canada. It is rich and tangy, with black pepper undertones. It is often used medically, to relieve symptoms of appetite loss, pain and insomnia. It is relaxing, it is euphoric and will leave you feeling so laid back you are almost horizontal.

Granddaddy Purple

Genetically, it is unique,  helping to reduce insomnia and relieve stress. It leaves consumers with a sweet and fruity taste. It is the best weed strain for nighttime use, hitting both the body and mind before mellowing out like the majority of heavy Indicas. It can pack a punch though, so take care if you are a novice – take a hit or two before allowing it to take effect.

Pink Kush

Producing super strong sensations and a delightful and dainty taste, Pink Kush is an Indica-dominant 90/10 hybrid with a little bit of a coquettish demeanour. No one is certain of the ancestry of this strain, but it is widely assumed that it is a successor of OG Kush     This strain lives up to its name with magnificent colour and great high and is a popular one in Canada.

Blue Widow

If you want a weed experience that is going to leave you stunned, Blue Widow from Canna Farms is one to try. With a high THC concentration of around 15 to 17%, fruity undertones and providing a smooth, clean smoke, Canna Farms have absolutely nailed it with this variety. It might be named Blue, but it will absolutely blow those blues away. It is pleasant and chilled with no extreme psychedelic highs for when you need something to keep you calm but focused.

Lemon Haze

Lemon Haze is a popular Sativa-dominant hybrid that takes both its potency and its powerful scent from its prestigious parent varieties. It is a cross between Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk. With a stand out citrus flavour profile and a long-lasting, well-balanced high as well, this bud is both a favourite of Indica and Sativa fans alike. When burned, Lemon Haze gives the consumer a smooth and easily ingested smoke. The high is a slow build-up, but worth the wait. The mood is improved, motivation increases and physical prowess is aided. It does have a generally high THC level, so one for low tolerance users to be cautious with. 


If sleep has deserted you, get your hands on some Romulan weed. It’s highly sedative properties mean that you probably shouldn’t think about taking it before you start a long shift at work, and if taken in high doses, it can leave you feeling whacked, but for a bedtime bud, this is ideal. It is perfect for helping relieving pain and stress, although it is important to keep snacks to hand – the munchies are real with this strain of weed.

Island Sweet Skunk

Last, but not least, a homegrown strain. Grown on the British Columbian shores for many, many years and has made top ten lists time and time again. Island Sweet Skunk is a strain that begins with a bouncy uplifting high, quickly followed by a soft body vibe. 

This fusion may have as much as 19 per cent THC and may be effective daily in the treatment of minor aches, arthritis, nausea, and loss of appetite. Island Sweet Skunk can promote good mood and can be used to treat depression, anxiety, and stress. Consumers often feel focused and creative after using it. It can also help with migraines, fatigue, and nerve pain.
