The 18 best cannabis strains this summer Old school roadkill, sativas from la belle province and an OVO-inspired cake straight outta Brampton make our industry insiders list of the choicest buds to sample this summer By Enzo DiMatteo

Ultra Sour by Namaste

If there is one word to sum up this summer’s ganja zeitgeist, it’s gas. Everyone is in love with petrol sour strains that give off that famous skunk smell. Varieties with the old-school whiff of roadkill are what the OGs want. But this sativa dominant hybrid from New Brunswick-based producer Namaste (by Zenabis) is not just about the smell. It’s about the flavour. THC content: 17 to 23 per cent. Price per gram: $9.75

Sage N Sour by MTL Cannabis

This sativa-dominant cross grown in Quebec came up the most often as a fave among the cannabis aficionados and insiders we polled. Its potency is its selling point. But its chemical profile is noteworthy for the fact that it’s more than one per cent CBG, the so-called “mother of all cannabinoids” that’s more powerful than CBD but without the foggy head high sometimes associated with weed that’s rich in THC. Definitely next level. THC content: 21 to 27 per cent. Price per gram: $10.13

Animal Face by Carmel Cannabis

If the name doesn’t pique your curiosity, the buzz will. This leafy, ultra-potent sativa launched this spring by the Oro Medonte, Ontario-based craft cannabis producer comes with a California lineage (Face Off OG) but a different phenotype emphasizing its lemon and cake flavours. Smooth. Grown in rockwool. Shhh. THC content: 23 to 29 per cent. Price per gram: $11.07

Mint Sour by Ness Cannabis

This zesty Sour Diesel offspring from the cannabis producer that invites you to experience your “-ness” (i.e.: “uniqueness”) is part of the growing number of popular strains out of Quebec. The sativa-dominant hybrid is known for its sticky, deep green buds. The Lemon Berry is also “a show stopper,” according to one member of our expert panel. THC content: 21.3 per cent. Price per gram: $9.99

GMO Cookies by Spinach Cannabis

GMOs are never a good thing, but in the case of this indica strain it stands for garlic, mushroom and onion. As the Stayner-based producers of this strain like to point out, “You can’t make a soup out of it, but it sure goes nicely in a bowl.” If what you’re looking for is a powerful experience… Notable: owned by the Cronos Group, whose brands include noteworthy medpot producer Peace Naturals. THC content: 24 to 31 per cent. Price per gram: $8.27

Wedding Cake by BLLRDR

BLLRDR rode onto the Ontario cannabis scene late last year in high style with the launch of its Afghani Bullrider strain with OVO co-founder Noah “40” Shebib. But it’s the Brampton-grown cannabis house’s California-inspired indica-dominant Wedding Cake that’s creating the buzz lately. With total cannabinoid content in these buds eclipsing 30 per cent it’s the icing on the cake. THC content: 22-27 per cent. Price per gram: $17.13

Cold Creek Kush by Redecan

This Niagara-grown go-to sativa is a cross of dank Colorado faves MK Ultra and Chemdawg 91 and boasts a herbal-heavy terpene profile. Great for a high-energy boost to motor through the work day. Also recommended: Redecan Redees pre-rolls in Wappa, Lilac Diesel and Black Cherry Punch. They come in packages of 10 so you can share with friends and socially “spliff-distance,” notes one of our experts. You can’t go wrong for the price. THC content: 17 to 23 per cent. Price per gram: $7.50, $5.99 if you buy a half bag.

Acapulco Gold by Jonny Chronic

Wondering where all the classic Landrace strains like Acapulco Gold went in the green rush to legalization? A number of brands now selling the strain claim the Acapulco Gold lineage. But the original is not so easy to grow. This one out of Thorndale, Ontario, is among the more interesting, which is why it’s usually out of stock. THC content: 20 to 26 per cent. Price per gram: $12.84

Karma by Dunn Cannabis 

The BC-based craft cannabis producer known for its small batch strains and attention to detail – it uses its own genetics – is slowly making headway in the legal market with a number of top-drawer strains. This indica-dominant cross comes from seeds bred by California mainstay Seed Junky Genetics. THC content: 20 to 25 per cent. Price per gram: $14.27
