In Leafly Canada’s inaugural vote on THC-dominant flower, readers favoured energizing strains with medium to high THC content, although relaxing and hit-you-over-the-head-high strains also made appearances.
The clear favourite brand was Edison, and not just for its likable La Strada strain–the New Brunswick-based brand from Organigram took a total of three spots on the list.
Here are Canada’s favourite THC-dominant flower choices, as chosen by you, Leafly readers.
Canada’s favourite THC-dominant flower
1. Edison La Strada
New Brunswick-based Organigram offers five main strains intended for experienced cannabis users under its Edison Cannabis Co. brand. But it was La Strada that emerged as Canada’s favourite, a crowd-pleasing strain featuring the terpenes caryophyllene, myrcene, humulene, bisabolol, and limonene, and boasting a not insignificant 14% to 21% THC.

It’s a strain worthy of the Markham, Ontario-based San Rafael ’71’s origin story. The company was named after the “420” legend, which became part of the stoner pantheon: a group of friends in San Rafael, California, in 1971 would meet everyday at 4:20 p.m. to get high and scour their town for a rumoured cannabis crop. Judging from the response of Leafly readers, this strain has inspired some adventures of its own.
